Everyday Inspiration

Miyoung brought in this adorable Kleenex box and I just couldn't stop looking at it. It's so silly because it's not really my style, but for some reason I just really like it.


So I came home tonight and made my first complete paper pack. Six cardstock papers and four patterned papers. I called it "Summer Pears."
I don't really know how to make embellishments yet so all it has is two felt borders (from my doodles), a pear, and a journally tag (also from my doodles). I made everything from scratch from tools inside Photoshop. The only things I bought were the felt actions and I used a grungy overlay from Designer Digitals.

And here's a page I made. I couldn't figure out WHY I needed pear paper... But these photos from our chocolate fountain work just fine! :)

PS. That's my mom in the middle picture enjoying the chocolate. My favorite kind of chocolate to use is toblerone. Mmmmmmm.......

That is so cool... you'll be a full blown designer in no time! I love that your inspiration came from a kleenex box (of all places!) and I love the results.

OH MY WORD YOU ARE A FLIPPIN GENIOUS. I mean that. IF I were a scrapper and IF you were selling this, I would buy it. IF you gave it away I would visit your blog ALL THE TIME to see what you come up with next.

Great design Kelly! I get my inspiration from the weirdest things too, have yet to use a kleenex box, but it was a worthy one! darling!

Ok...I have to know...How did you get the design from the tissue box to the computer??? That is even more "crazy cool" than your hand drawn and scanned doodle! I agree with Corinnea... You're a genius. :)

Adrienne, I made the pears (and all the papers) with the computer. You'll notice they aren't exactly like the pears on the box.
