Cassandra Cyr, You've Been Lifted! :)

This week, we've all been lifting some of our fabulous community members- they are so inspiring! 

I fell in love with Cassie's gorgeous fall layout using Crate Paper. All the layers and the rich colors are just incredible. Cassie's projects always have lots of details and a great design- and this one was no exception. It was really fun to lift and to be inspired by her style! 

I wanted my layout to feel softer and more delicate to fit my photo, so I used the great West Coast kit - the colors and lovely feminine details in it fit the feel of this layout perfectly. 

I loved Cassie's big fabric flowers, so I mimicked it on a slightly smaller scale with the fabrips in the kit. I popped a doily behind it to still give the same feel of a large circular element on that side of the page, but it works better with the size and orientation of my photo than a large flower. 

I think my favorite thing on Cassie's page was the strip with circular elements- what a fun addition! I will definitely be using that idea again! :) Thanks, Cassie, for your inspiration! 


I also have been drawing inspiration lately from the reality show, Project Runway. 

They recently had their "unconventional products" challenge, where they created garments out of candy! So fun! 

One of the ideas I took away from the show is that they used one shape (in this case, circular and shark shaped candies) to created other shapes on the dress, so I adapted that to my layout and used strips of paper to create large, layered circles. 

The color palette was also adapted from the inspiration piece on the show- gorgeous shades of blue. 

What's been inspiring YOU lately?
