I often get asked where I get my ideas from... and I can honestly say EVERYWHERE! As you look around you, look at shapes, how things line up against each other, what colors are next to each other. Pictures in magazines, color combinations on cakes, the pattern on a plate, or something in a movie. You will be amazed at what triggers an idea!

Here are some examples...

The topsy turvy angles of this cake made me think of cups stacked inside each other.

From the movie The Nightmare Before Christmas, the curve Jack is standing on inspired the curves in the tree.

And the cup from my favorite coffee place inspired this holiday card.

So when you are trying to think of ideas for your next scrapbook layout, card, or any craft project, take a second look at the things around you... you never know where your inspiration will come from.
