Blog Bop!

Hey friends! It's the tippy top of Tuesday!

I've been "bopping" around from blog to blog, blipping about, bouncing around like a bouquet of balloons in a breeze for none other than moxie fab inspiration just for you. You know, the kind of inspiration that puts your heart in your mouth, urging you to drop everything and get all paper crafty?

Like these cards I was oh-so-happy to find on Julia Stainton's blog:

What's the Buzz? Card

Moxie Fab Alert: bees, colorful vintage

Rock and Roll Medallion Card

Moxie Fab Alert: gradient color

Button Blooms Card

Moxie Fab Alert: coloring book look, buttons, clouds, clean & graphic style, markers

Go For It! Card

Moxie Fab Alert: patchwork, color scheme, stitching

...and these fresh projects on Roree Rumph's blog that made me feel all a-giddy:

Welcome House

Moxie Fab Alert: house, butterflies, stitching, scallops

Funky Bird Card

Moxie Fab Alert: wonky bird, cool stitching, half-concentric circles background

I love this layout on Danielle Flanders' blog:

Moving Up Layout

Moxie Fab Alert: mixing color/black-and-white photos, scalloped circle, vintage background paired with graphic foreground

I found this card on Cindy Lawrence's blog and it made an instant smile on my face:

Have a Swingin' Day Card

Moxie Fab Alert: tree, swing, clouds, owl, bird, googly eyes, markers

While this card on Kimberly Crawford's blog echoes one of our favorite trends here in the Moxie Fab World:

Love You Forever Card

Moxie Fab Alert: color combo, Victorian overtones, clean lines

...and these cards by Katie Anderson are simply and irresistibly sweet:

Live Laugh Love Card

Moxie Fab Alert: clean and graphic style, simple flower, scalloped edge, color combo, typography, hemp twine

Vroom Vroom Birthday Card

Moxie Fab Alert: retro/vintage image, color combo, clean and graphic style

Home Sweet Home Card

Moxie Fab Alert: bold polka dots, color scheme, houses, window card, clean and graphic style

It's amazing all the inspiration that one can find from one happy little bop! If you've been inspired the way I've been inspired, bop on over and check out the other inspiration these talented gals have to offer!

Cindy

Danielle

Katie

Kimberly

Julia

Roree

But before you go, leave me some love by midnight MST on Sunday, June 7 letting me know which of these projects inspires you the most and why, and I'll send 1 random winner some love in the form of some boppin' awesome American Crafts Thickers!

Just boppin' along,

~Cath

PS Be sure and bop by tomorrow to see the winners of the Moxie Fab World Citrus Color Challenge! I'm so excited I can hardly stand it! See you then!

My favorite project is a toss between "What's the Buzz?" card and "Moving Up" layout. The card is so pretty with all the little details. The layout is unique in the way the main part of the page is layered on the scallop circle. The black & white photo paired with the color photo works so well. They are both fabulous projects.

I love the vintage look, so both Julia's Stainton's "What's the Buzz" card and Kim Crawford's "Love you Forever" were just to die for, just for design and colors. And Roree Rumph's "Welcome House" was brilliant, I want to know how she made it, it is so clever!!!

My two favorites are "have a swinging day "and "Home Sweet Home. " I always find the latter category a bit challenging to muster up so this will give me a great layout to follow. Thanks for all of your hard work keeping us all so well informed and "so happy" with all the contest incentives!

Kelly said...

Home Sweet HOme. We are in the process of redo-ing a bedroom and realize how much of the house needs a touch of love. But, it is our place of refuge, place of love, place of security. Thats what home is about.
