Sensational Sunday Inspirations + Blog Candy

Hi Stampers!

Welcome to our Sensational Sunday Inspirations post!

Hope you are all had a safe and fun New Year! We spent ours at home playing silly games with the kids and had a total blast :)  There is no where I would rather spend New Year's then home with family.

Earlier this week we did receive some sad news. We unfortunately have to say good-bye to Design team member Kelli Hull. She had some schedule changes coming up that didn't allow her enough crafty time to stay on the team. We will miss her but I know we will see her around in blog land and of course on splitcoaststampers since she is now a Dirty Girl! YAY Kelli!! We wish Kelli all the best with all that she does and want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for all the inspiration, laughs and good times :)

Now onto our random winner of last week's BLOG CANDY GIVE-AWAY! According to the is...

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

Shanna Shands

Shanna used one of my favorite color combinations for winter cards on this super cute card! I love the deep rich reds, and the soft blue combination! Shanna always amazes me with her gorgeous coloring and this is no exception! I love everything about this...the bling, those gorgeous flowers, the sparkle snowflakes, and the lay out! Such a beautiful design!

Dangina Martinez

Ok, now seriously...who would want to read a book just to open it up to see this out-of-this-world adorable bookmark? EVERYONE!!! This is so super cute! Dangina also has mad coloring skills that I adore! I love the paper piecing on the dress and check out that little bird paper in the background too! This is such a cute little scene! ♥ ♥ ♥ it!

Athina Emory
My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Collection

This is absolutely gorgeous! Athina created this gorgeous book called a  Multi Pocket Envelope Album. This is chock full of gorgeous pockets and beautiful tags! I think I would spend hours looking and re-looking through this because it is such a stunning creation! You definitely need to visit Athina's Blog to see the rest of these gorgeous pages and she also provides a link to where she got the tutorial on making one of these! What a beautiful keepsake!

Marcy Dangcil

Marcy created this super sweet altered box to hold some yummy Valentine's Day treats! What an adorable way to give some extra sweetness with your Valentine's Day Gift! I love the girly trims and all the details that Marcy added to this little wooden box. The coloring on this image is so pretty too! What an adorable treasure for some lucky little lady!

Lydia Walker

Now I just have to say that Lydia is a pure genius with this project! She created a sweet little gift that doubles as a gorgeous embellishment for her card! Yep Yep - Pure genius!! The first picture shows that gorgeous flower doing it's job...embellishing that cute cute card. In the second picture you will notice the flower removed and the card is STILL super adorable! Then the last picture shows the gorgeous flower on it's own...but the genius part is that this is a handmade hair clip that Lydia made!! It accents the card perfectly and then you just unclip it, stick it in your hair, and off you go all stylin'! See...pure genius!!

Wow! Wow! And TRIPLE WOW! The ladies really rocked the inspiration out today! I am so amazed at the talent and the gorgeous-ness that these ladies produce each and every week! I literally squeal with excitement everytime I see their projects for the first time - LOL! Makes everyday like Christmas :)

I hope you enjoyed today's inspiration from the team! Be sure to leave them some love and you will automatically be entered into the drawing for this week's blog candy :)
