BLOG CANDY!

Okay so I am celebrating reaching 4,000 hits!!! WOO HOO! (it's at 3,993 as I am writing this) My blog was born September 13th and I had NO idea what I was doing. My fabulous friend Tricia (Lizzie) took the time to show me the ropes...Love ya Tricia! I have met some wonderful ladies through my blog. Marlou was my first regular visitor, thanks to everyone who visits my blog often...you will now have a chance to win some Blog Candy!
As you may notice my blog contains 98% of cards which have Lizzie Anne Designs Stamp on them - I love Lizzie Anne Designs SO much I decided to use one of their sets as my Candy. Now instead of telling you which one you will win I thought I would let YOU decide which one you would like to receive. To win the Candy all you have to do is answer this question...
Where do you get your inspiration for your cards/scrapbook pages from? I would also LOVE to know what your favourite product or embellishment is right now. Don't forget to mention which Lizzie Anne set you would like (click here to see your choices) and also number your replies. I will get my daughter to pick a number from a hat on Monday 21st Jan! GOOD LUCK!

I usually get my inspiration from other people's blogs, except for those rare occasions when I wake up in the middle of the night with a fantastic idea...that I usually can't remember in the morning. My favorite embellishment right now is embossed paper...because I have a new Cuttlebug and quite a few embossing folders that I'm LOVING playing with. Please pick me and send me...Jolies Fleurs Stamp Set. I've been eyeing this one for a long time Ü

#9 - I usually get my inspiration from blogs, like yours, and also from Splitcoaststampers. I rarely read magazines anymore, since what I find online is so superior to most of what they have! I have the Jolies Fleurs set but have been drooling over Floral Frenzy (I'm a sucker for pretty flower stamps!).

Kraftin' Kimmie said...

Congrats on the milestone!! I get my inspiration from the world around me, really! Even at work I am constantly thinking about stamping, and looking at people's clothes or magazines for design ideas. My fave embellishment right now is buttons. I got a BUNCH of pretty coloured ones at the dollar store!! If I were lucky enough to win, I would choose In the Treetop! It caught my eye right away out of all the newest releases!! Thanks for such a generous blog candy!!

CAKVD said...

OMG!! No wonder you love Lizzie Anne so much...these stamps are awesome! I don't own any yet, but I would love the Jolies Fleurs Stamp Set!! I get my inspiration from all the other wonderful bloggers out there. Sometimes if I'm really stuck, I look in my 3 year old daughter's closet and look at her clothes. Children's clothes have some awesome color combos and great placement of embellishments too. My favorite embellie right now are rhinestones. I can't get enough!!
Thanks!

Allison said...

Hi Zee...thanks for the super candy offer! I love the new "Dreaming of Dots" set but there are actually a bunch that have been pretty enticing! I get my inspiration primarily from blogs but sometimes I will see something in a kids' clothing store or at Pier 1 that catches my eye too! Cheers!

stamp and scrape said...

#13. Thanks for this offer. I don't know these stamps, being from the UK, but it was very hard to choose one! I finally settled on So swirly as they'd make great backgrounds.
As for inspiration - there's a wealth of blogs to visit (this one added to my list), with so many tips and ideas.
And my favourite thing at the moment is Glimmer Mist, a sparkly spray ink.

Linda SS said...

Congrats on all the well deserved hits! Boy - that's a toughie as I love them all. Guess I'd go with Floral Frenzy. I get my inspiration everywhere. A piece of fabric, a bird on my deck...I see something and want to create:) And of course looking at blogs gives me ideas as to which stamps, paper, or supplies I can't live without:)

Cathy M said...

#23-I get my inspiration from my son. For the last few years the only work I've done has been his scrapbook. I've just started scrapping some other things and I'm really getting into card making. My style tends to be fairly simple, so I don't really get ideas from other blogs or magazines. Although now that I've started with cards, I look at blog ideas a lot more! But for me, I just need a few pictures of the cutest kid in the world, and I'm all set! My favorite embellishment...Just one?! I would have to say glitter right now. I've become obsessed with it! Glitter everywhere! If I'm lucky enough to be picked, I would love the Petite Phrases set. SO CUTE! Love your blog! Thanks a lot!

ScrapMomOf2 said...

I think I'm #24 if no one else sneaks in front of me.

You have already gone way past 4,000 . . . Congratulations! Fantastic blog candy! I love the shapes & stitches set.

I get inspired by visiting blogs! I also love looking at the creations on the Cricut message board. I love Cuttlebug embossing, Primas, and ribbon!

Keep going strong. I LOVE your blog! (and Marlou is wonderful!)

Where do you get your inspiration for your cards/scrapbook pages from? I would also LOVE to know what your favourite product or embellishment is right now.

I get my inspiration for my cards from who the card is intended for and my scrapbook pages from the photos themselves. I will occassionally find a photo in a magazine that catches my eye that I think would make a good card too.
I like the Jolies Fleurs Stamp Set by Lizzie Anne Designs .

Carol Weimer said...

Congratulations and thanks so much for all the inspiration you provide. I get most of my inspiration viewing blogs to see what the hottest trends are. I love seeing new techniques used in so many ways. I think Lizzie's newest stamp set, "hey cupcake" is adorable and lots of bloggers are using this sweet treat on their cards. Sure would love to jump on this bandwagon. Thanks again for your fab ideas.

Crestajune said...

I get my inspiration from a variety of sources: other people's blogs, magazines, and the world around me, and somehow little pieces of all of that comes together when I sit down to create. My favorite embellishments are brads. I can't seem to make anything without them. If I were lucky enough to win, I would choose Say it in Script. I LOVE Lizzie Anne Designs!

Em said...

Hey, I love your blog - which is one of my new inspirations. One other one is paper believe it or not. The new designs and color combos are amazing! I'm also inspired by stamp sets(especially Lizzie Anne of course) and peeking at other people's cards is fun too. My fave belle right now is jewels. Tiny ones. Just a sparkle in a bird's eye, a crown or flower etc. I would LOVE the tree set. I'd love all the new ones! Thanks, EM

Kathy said...

Wow, what great blog candy!!!!! I get most of my inspiration from other blogs--I love the descriptions and ideas that others share with us. Right now, my favorite embellishment has got to be stickles, stickles, stickles--I feel my cards are a little naked without some type of sparkle to them.

I can't pick my favorite LAD set but if I do win, I'd love to have Once Upon a Time. I need a good princess set for my 3 yo princess :-)

Tricia said...

Right now my inspiration usually comes from blog surfing... or just sitting down and PLAYING! I'm trying to use up a lot of my stash right now, but I love designer paper and brads.

The set I'd like is the Petite Phrases one. At least I think that's its name. It has a cute ladybug with the with the "bugging" you sentiment! :)

Fun blog candy! I get inspiration from several places--it can be from ads, clothing, other stamped creations and by just looking at the stamp set! I pretty much love all LAD sets, but I'm looking to add Shapes & Stiches. Thanks for the fun drawing!

Julie Mutch said...

Hi Zee,

Thanks for your generous offer and for the chance to play along! :) I love Lizzie Anne stamps - I'd have to say my favourite set is the Au Naturale stamp set. It's so beautiful!

My favourite embellishments are pretty ribbon and bling. I love swarovski crystals! I'd use 'em on every card if they weren't so expensive! lol :)

This is my first visit to your blog, I'll certainly be back! Beautiful work! Thanks for sharing! :)

Scrappychick said...

Hey Zee. My inspiration comes from everywhere...sketches, challenges, catalogs, blogs, Target,etc!! Right now...hmm. My favorite product is probably my copic markers. I would LOVE In the Treetop, I haven't ordered that one yet. I am #45 I think. Thanks for offering such great candy!

Maria said...

I think I'm #46

I think I get inspration from all over. I love to do sketch challenges, that is a great starting point. Otherwise I start with a stamp I have to use and go with that. My favorite embellishment would have to be ribbon, also creating all the great embossed looks using my new friend (xmas gift) the cuttlebug.

I've been loving LAD for sometime now. They have great sets. During the holidays my favorite set was Christmas in the City. Recntly it has been L'Amour. But I rec'd new stuff today so off I go to play.

Pat S. said...

Hi Zee! Congratulations! When I checked in, your counter showed almost 4200 hits!!!

I just adore Lizzie Ann stamps...thank you for offering a chance to win a set! My favorite is Jolies Fleurs.

I get my inspiration from Splitcoast and stamper's blogs. I like the sketch challenges...that is where I have the most trouble.

My favorite embellishment is Cuttlebug embossing. I used it on the background paper for my valentines and only added one small strip of ribbon...that's all it needed :)

becky said...

My inspiration comes from magazines and I also love CTMH.
I sketch ideas wherever I go, interesting color combinations and design layouts can be seen in everything.
I just discovered Lizzie Ann from a magazine and love the beautiful designs. My favorite is in the Treetop. Just love it , it's so versatile!

rpp said...

I am sure this is not unique-but I get a lot of my inspiration from spc and recently have just discovered the world of stamping blogs and am loving it! I honestly am new to Lizzie Anne stamps, but after looking at them all, love them and want several now! I want Dreaming of Dots and Storytime, although I really wish there was a knight in that set as well! Thanks for YOUR inspiration! I'm into the bling blings right now.
