Now on to today's blast of inspiration from our talented Design Team! Here we go....

Ceal Pritchett - Thursday's Inspiration

Ceal always does a beautiful job with clean and simple cards. I love the purples that Ceal chose for her card and the different layers of snowflakes are so pretty!

Holly Flores - Friday's Inspiration

Holly has made a vow to herself to create more scrapbook pages (something I desperately need to do as well!) and she has been doing an AWESOME job! This is so adorable! I love the layout and the little sprinkling of tools that Holly placed around her page. Her little cubscout image is perfect for this page's theme! This is a great example of how to use stamps in your scrapbook page designs!

Jacqueline Smith - Saturday's Inspiration

Jacqueline has been creating some exquisite Christmas cards and this one is right up there with my favorites! I love the crimped snow panel layers and those deer are stunning! The colors are so pretty and I love the sprinking of snow bling on the trees. This is so pretty!

Lydia Walker

This is the cutest! That Winter Fox is a must have image for me and it will be included with our next Lawn Fawn order. Now I have to tell you that I was absolutly WOW'ed when I saw how Lydia created that gorgeous red and turqoiuse that is not pattern paper - Lydia created it in the most genius fashion! Visit her blog post here to see her tutorial and prepare to be AMAZED!

Shanna Shands

This is such a beautiful card! I love the z-fold style that Shanna used! Ching-Chou Kuik does such beautiful designs paired with Shanna's gorgeous coloring and you know it will be a stunner! This makes such a beautiful Christmas card! I love the simple design of the patterned paper and those gorgeous flowers add the perfect touch. Shanna has this card along with some of her other gorgeous creations for sale in her Etsy Store - SCSCardDesigns!

Marcy Dangcil

This is so super sweet! Marcy colored this little Tilda so beautifully for the Christmas Holiday! I love this layout and the embellishments are so perfect!

Katie Skiff

This is such an elegant card and I love that Katie can create cards making those beautiful sentiment stamps the focal image. I struggle with that because I always want to add a picture. Those papers are GORGEOUS and go with this week's challenge theme at Loves Rubberstamps of Kraft plus one color perfectly!!

Kelli Hull

This is SOOOO CUTE!! Kelli did a beautiful job of coloring this super cute image! I love the traditional Christmas colors and those patterned papers that Kelli chose are perfect! That pine branch is from Impression Obsession and we will be adding those dies soon. I love the woodgrain looking paper that really adds to the pine branch. Beautiful job!!

Wow! Is my Design Team super amazing or what?? I love each and every project for today's post! These ladies are so awesome and I just love being wow'd each and every week by their gorgeous projects! i hope you enjoyed them as much as I did!
