I am inspired to try new ideas and techniques everyday as I peruse all of the crafty blogs out there. With the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop on Saturday focusing on inspirations, I figured I would highlight just a small few of what I have been inspired by lately.

Today, it's all about Betsy Veldman's felt flowers using Papertrey Ink's Rick Rack Die. Loved this idea when I first saw my email box when it came in the form of a Design Tip message. Knew I  would one day try this out!! And love it I did when I tried it!! I am totally going to try our her homemade doily idea one of these days too!!

But for now, I am loving the tiny felt flowers!!

And I actually got out my sewing machine for this one too. I have wanted to get it out on other cards, but I store it under my desk, and I have having to thread the needle, change out the bobbin, I am usually just lazy and skip the added touch that the sewing maching brings, but I think I may bring it out more often...may even try to find it a permanent home out someplace in the studio...maybe one day!! My grandmother would be happy to see me sewing, though I am not sure she'd like that I am using it to sew paper (she and my grandfather we both tailors, and really all I can do is sew a straight line).

Thanks for stopping by today!
