BeaInspired – Step out of the box…and away from the paper!

Sometimes I hit a creative block, I’m sure you all know how it is. None of your papers match, no stamp is perfect, and all your cards come out looking the same. It’s hard to find ways to break out of this. I usuallly take time to clean and organize my craft space, or I [...]

BeaInspired – Independence Day – 4th of July!

This week our blog is going to be devoted to celebrating our Independence Day, the 4th of July! Each of our themed series, as well as our free svg giveaways will be themed around this momentous holiday. Today we got inspired by the 4th of July for a birthday card. A very patriotic friend and [...]

BeaInspired – BBQ Time! – Outdoor Utensil Holder

Although it is still raining in Northern California, I was thinking about the upcoming summer and how excited I am for weekend days by the pool with my family. I thought I would create something fun to have on our summer table. A few restaurants in town use six-pack holders for utensils, or condiment holders. [...]

BeaInspired – Old Favorites

One thing that I do to rekindle my creative spirits is to sort through old photos of prior projects and putting a new spin on them for a new purpose. This week my mom asked for a baby girl card to send some new grandparents and family friends. Struggling for an idea, I found a [...]

BeaInspired – Making Memories Shimmer Swirls

Our trip to Michaels Arts and Crafts Store this week had us finding the Making Memories Shimmer Swirls. These swirls are chipboard covered in a coat of silver (also available in other colors) glitter. Due to the already bright and borderline overwhelming sparkle of the pieces, we paired it with a basic card structure. A [...]

BeaInspired – Cindy Loo Cricut Cartridge

This week we added the Cindy Loo Cricut Cartridge to our collection. We just loved the paisley swirls, branches and adorable animals that this cartridge had to offer. We created this basic card in just minutes with the use of the new cartridge. The Cindy Loo cartridge offers a wide variety of shapes, borders, letters, [...]

BeaInspired – SVG Files

Today we are being inspired by SVG files. We thought we would take a minute to show how we use our free SVG files to make cards! The SVG we used for this card is our Paisley print. We cut out the layers in fun, patterned, colorful papers and assembled the paisley print. If you [...]

BeaInspired – Vinyl

I spent a few days this New Year’s weekend helping my sister prepare for her little one that is due in mid-January!  It was my first experience with Provocraft’s Cricut Cuttables Vinyl. My sister asked that the quote “Thank heaven for little girls” be displayed on the wall as well as some type of border. [...]

BeaInspired – Math

For some people math just never added up.  Love can sometimes be the same way. But we think math and love can make a great pairing, especially when it comes to making cards! We received a request for a card featuring the slogan “My love for you is exponential.” We thought this was a creative [...]

BeaOrganized – Ironing Area

It can be such a hassle to get out an ironing board every time you need  to iron a tiny piece of fabric for a card. A lot of times I end up laying down a hand towel and ironing on top of that. I came across this photo while looking for creative storage solutions [...]
