Today I’m inspired by…Numbers. I teach first grade and my brain has been swimming with numbers as I teach the kids subtraction. Here are some cool pieces with numbers from around the web.
Calmly It Goes Wood Type by Green Chair Press Inspiration point: This Etsy shop is amazing! There are tons of letterpress items for sale and I liked the colors and typeface in this one.
123 Tag Books by Three Potato Four Inspiration point: Are these darling? It looks like a manila tag with some paper stapled inside- so cute!
Top Ten Signature Loop Stitched Notebooks from Russel+Hazel Inspiration point: I love the idea of these notebooks. It would be great for a collection of school memories or anniversaries for each year.
Tabletop Splat Mat by Sugar Booger Inspiration point: The adorable animals caught my eye but I also like the idea of making a counting book or activity for T. These colors are great- not too masculine and not too feminine.
Spierkermann House Numbers featured on Mid-Century Modernist Inspiration point: This already looks like a piece of art but they are actual house numbers. I love the mix-and-match numbers…perhaps I will mix some of my number stickers that I have laying around…it would make a cute birthday card!
Fabric Remix Scarf by Melbry Inspiration point: I really like the mix of patterns and colors on this scarf- it would make a great background or border on a page.
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 momastore.org Inspiration point: The patterns and colors are great on these! I’m going to break out some scraps to lift this idea!
Sticky Journal from momastore.org 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 momastore.org 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!
