The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~56~

Happy Friday everyone! Are you in full summer mode?

Thank you so much to everyone who came by and shared their creativity on the Inspiration Board this week. I’m always amazed at all the wonderful ideas, recipes, home décor, crafts and more that are linked up. If you stopped by to visit, I hope you found some creative inspiration on the board.

Here are a few projects in the spotlight this week.
b A beautiful card by Sandy’s Space. I love the wood grain [faux bois] cardstock and the use of baker’s twine.

Anthro coat rack top Transformations from the Heart took a plain coat rack and created an Anthropoligie-inspired version. So unique! Note: the Anthro version sells for almost $1,000. 

img_7792bCheck out Hey Little Mother’s tutorial on how to print directly onto a drop cloth. Drop clothes are all the rage for using in home décor and crafting. I love the word art she created using just a regular printer.

Pink-Lemonade-Party-4_thumbWhat a sweet party by Cherished Bliss. A pink lemonade theme with lots of pink and lemony treats. Sweet!

bwooden-spoons-064logoI love the black and white take on these dipped spoons by Pleasure in Simple Things. The fun part is the dipped end is created using plastidip which creates a rubber coating. Functional and fun!

77 bd thread dogs dylan 043Soft and cuddly baby gifts by Oxford Impressions. Beautiful fabric choices make these gifts all the more special.

Star Spangled Gumdrops, Fourth of July Recipes, July 4th picnic food, treats, sweets, desserts, star shaped candy The Fourth of July is around the corner and these red, white and blue gumdrops by Hungry Happenings would be the perfect sugary explosion.
