Idea Book

Did you notice that the Stampin’ Up!© catalogue is not just a catalogue.  In fact, the name is actually Idea Book & Catalog!  And one of the best things about the IBC is the inspiration you find on each page. 

My sister wanted me to make her some chicken soup get well cards.  This is a great stamp I found at Ruth’s Jewish Stamps.  I know, it’s not Stampin’ Up!  Unfortunately, SU’s Judaica selections are very limited and sometimes you need something specific.  In the SU world, it’s called Rubbadultery.  Funny, huh?  Anyway, I had made a bunch of these a few years ago (oh my goodness, I just looked…it was back in December of 2005!). 
chicken soup finalHere’s the original.  My sister wanted a set but with her name instead of Bubbe.  For those that don’t know, bubbe is the yiddish word for Grandmother.  So I made some for her and some for me too.  Here’s the updated version.  I have to confess to more Rubbadultery…I used my Copics to color the soup.   Shhh….


Chicken-soup-rx(web)What do you think?  So what does this have to do with the IB&C?  Everything!  The layout is from the card on page 17.  As you can see, it’s not exact but the inspiration is clear. 

I’m going to challenge myself to use this catalog and older ones for layouts and color combinations.  Find inspiration everywhere! 

Tell me, where do you find inspiration?
