Inspiration Push # 1 + Jenns Doodles banner

OK so this weeks "inspiration push" is the very first one!!!!

The item from your stash is something I'm sure we all have. I for one bought lots of it because it was so shiny! I must say... I have not used any of it NOT once! Nor have I seen much of it in the scrapbook galleries. So I'm guessing there's plentiful in your stash like there is in mine.
Again, it was shiny. I like shiny things. I had to have it!
The first item is......(shiny) foiled patterned paper.
Like this >>>>>

So let's see what we can come up with using this pretty patterned paper.

The Quote I chose this week is in honor of Thanksgiving. I'm sure lots of you took some Turkey day pictures.
"A thankful heart is a happy heart"
Not very snazzy...nice & simple. Use it as is OR use it as a jumping off point for a layout.

So we have:

Inspiration Push # 1
:Stash:  Foiled pattern paper 
:Quote: "A thankful heart is a happy heart"

Have fun creating & using up your stash!
Remember this is a no pressure, have fun while making a dent in your stash kinda thing.
Get inspired....

Here's what I came up with using the shiny foiled pattern paper....

This will one day find a spot in my dream scrap room......

Enjoy & have fun!!!

First Post Eva!!!!!

Ok so here goes.....My first ever post on Blogger! Been wanting to do this for a while now.

So welcome to my scrappy happy place. Please bear with me as I am new to this blogging thing.

This will be a place where I post my trials & tribulations that go along with this wonderful hobby of mine.

As the week goes on I plan on adding my profile & learning the ins & outs of this blogging thing.

I will use this blog to post some of my favorite things, layouts, some handmade items, & all things scrappy. And some tidbits from my crazy wonderful life.

I will also be posting "Inspiration pushes"....This is what put the fire under my butt to finally do this.
It all started on the 2 Peas MB. I'm trying to spend less & use more of my stash. I realized that I've been collecting more than I've been creating. Not very happy bout that! So I put myself on a spending freeze & some others decided to join me. So every Monday I will post an "inspiration push". They will be in 2 parts.
This is directly from that post....

Ok so I was thinking of ways to make this a little more fun & another way to push us to make some layouts, cards, etc with our stash. So here's what I'm going to do......On the Monday check ins I will post some sort of inspiration push. Like using a certain color or using a certain embellie. It will just be a no pressure suggestion. Just a little push. 

I'm also going to throw in a quote or page title in. I bought a book entirely made up of quotes & titles about 6 weeks ago. So I have tons right at my fingertips. 
So the inspiration push will be made up of 2 parts. 
1) A suggested item to use in your stash. 
2) A quote or title. 
You can use one or the other or both. 
These are merely to help us get some scrappy stuff done! No pressure fun.

I'm hoping to set up an archive as time goes on.

So hopefully I'll use up my stash & then........happily go on spending LOL But I wait I know....I will be looking at things a little differently.
