Finding Inspriation in Materials and Color Trends

I haven't made a whole lot of new cards for my shop lately because I've got another new product in the works that I've been spending the majority of my time on instead. In addition, I've also been working on another new line of cards, but I am waiting for the envelopes for this particular line to arrive. I am feeling incredibly inspired by so many things around me. It seems I have all sorts of ideas these days, and I'm having a hard time staying focused on just one project at a time. I finally have the time to execute some of my ideas and so they are all trying to get out of my system at one time, which sometimes leads to less productivity in the end. I have been trying to continue feeling inspired, but take note of these inspirations instead of diving into them as soon as something pops into my head. Despite an inspiration overload these days, I was still able to get some of these new cards into the shop.

I've been really feeling inspired lately by new card stock and envelopes that I recently purchased, new fonts to play with, and colors that are on trend these days. As I prepare my new line of cards that I'm hoping to launch mid-month, you'll continue to see current color trends, but in a fun and bold way instead of these corals, mints, and purples.

What have you been inspired by lately?

  2. Love the script font! I'm excited to see what else you have in the works. I get inspired by my materials all the time. Sometimes I'll get something in the mail and a new idea will just hit me in the face, haha.

  4. I'm always staring at people's handbags and wallets for inspiration. I can't really make everything that I see but what I look for is how they are using it. What would be the most convenient way of using that handbag, purse or wallet.

    Also, I had an inquiry for a custom order last week. It didn't pan out but it did provide some inspiration for upcoming projects. Even though most of the custom request don't usually pan out they do help me think outside the box a bit.

  5. I love these colors and think they're a perfect way to get inspiration too. I just bought some packaging supplies off Etsy in mint and coral and am hoping that will inspire me to create more things to put in them :)

  6. I also have too many projects going at once and so can't finish just one! I haven't listed anything new in my shop for a week or more. But that's ok. You can't measure productivity in creativity the same way you would in other areas. You know?

  8. I love the new cards! I find alot of my creative inspiration in things my daughter finds in nature. She is an animals/nature lover so she will find things in beautiful colors that inspire me.
