Today I’m inspired by…the alphabet. I love letters- I have a collection of “N”s that I display in various rooms of our home and I love looking at all kinds of ABC fabrics and art. Here are some great things I found on the web.

8x10 Alphabet Print, 7 colour choices

Alphabet Print by PennyPeople on Etsy Inspiration point: I have been eyeing this print since T was born. I love the colors and how all of the typeface fits together. Maybe I could do this with some extra letter stickers or my FaLaLa cartridge for my Slice…

Cheers Wine Glasses by CB2 Inspiration point: I like the colors they have used and the idea of using “Cheers” in different languages. Wouldn’t a thank-you card inspired by this be a cute idea?

Custom Baby Birth Poster

Custom Baby Birth Poster by Chaiv on Etsy Inspiration point: These colors look amazing together and I think this would make a great journaling block for a baby album. It reminds me of the Wordle website.

Dizzie Chickie On Alphabet Hill Poster

Dizzie Chickie On Alphabet Hill by Chaiv on Etsy Inspiration point: I just loved all of the work at the Chaiv store- here is another piece. I like the different colors this is available in and that little chick is adorable!

Design Star bedroom Episode 1 HGTV


Design Star Bedroom (Episode 1) from HGTV Inspiration point: When I saw this episode of Design Star, this art was pretty much the only part of the room I liked. The designers went to JoAnn’s and bought some letters and chipboard to use as stencils for the wall. Though you can’t see it, some letters are stenciled on and some are 3D. So cool!


Marquee Lights from Urban Outfitters Inspiration point: I’ve always liked this type of marquee letter- it reminds me of the neon graveyards you hear about in Vegas (do those exist?) I think I’ll use my little hole punch to punch some holes in my alphabet stickers to re-create this look.

 Typography Soap from Fred Flare

Typography Soap from Fred Flare Inspiration point: I think this is cute! It reminds me of masking with stickers…maybe using Maya Mists?

Office Supplies

Today I’m inspired by…office supplies. It’s hard not to be now that the school supply sales are in full-swing. I always love looking at all of the different folders and notebooks, might be the teacher in me. 😉 Here are some fun supplies I found on the web:

Day of the Week Clips from See Jane Work Inspiration point: First of all, I could totally make these. Print out the labels, glue them to a clothespin- no problem. Second of all, I need these. For home and work.

Basics Composition books from See Jane Work Inspiration point: I love anything with letters and numbers (

Large Clipboard by See Jane Work Inspiration point: I love the color combinations on these clipboards, though I wouldn’t have thought of them on my own. It would be easy to cut or punch colored circles for a backround on a layout or card.

WhoMi Modern Notebook from See Jane Work Inspiration point: The graphics on these notebooks are so cool! Each one has a different kind of paper in them and they labeled them accordingly. I like how the letters are set off the page- would be cool for a title or card.

Moonstrips Notecards by Eduardo Paolozzi from Inspiration point: The patterns and colors are great on these! I’m going to break out some scraps to lift this idea!

Moonstrips Note Cards by Eduardo Paolozzi from momastore.comSticky Journal from Inspiration point: Brilliant! This combines two of my most favorite things- sticky notes and little books. I think this would be easy to re-create…especially now that I have a Bind-It-All!

Tower of Clips by Barbara Flanagan at Inspiration point: I think I could make this, too, right? I’ve seen clamps like those…regardless I need one. I could clip coupons, business cards, photos, messages…

Pixel Colored Pencils at Fred Flare Inspiration point: The square pattern and color mix are eye-catching…maybe for a square-punched border or background.

Dragonfly Paperclips at Fred Flare Inspiration point: I know butterflies are trendy in scrapbooking now, but I find that my boy pages don’t quite lend themselves to butterflies. Voila- the masculine version of the butterfly…the dragonfly!
