american crafts inspired by ads.

Today on the American Crafts blog these two layouts were featured.  We were challenged to find ads that inspired us to create!  These two inspiration pieces came from my Rachel Ray magazine: 
 my take (yes, the picture over my daughter's face was overshadowed by the sun....)
 closeups:
 Supplies: Honeycomb (71633) - Cardstock, Greenwich Village Paper (35838) - Soho Garden, Fox Gold (53414) - Thickers, Boho Black (53423) - Thickers, Jingle Crimson (53439) - Kringle and Co, East Village (89429) - Soho Garden Carded Ribbon, Carrot Brads (8479) - Elements, Metallic Buttons (85439) - Elements, Hudson Square (85608) - Bits, Poppy District (42273) - Remarks, High Line Park Paper (35831) - Soho Garden, Playtime Plaza Paper (35803) - 5th & Frolic, Today (59220) - Roller Date Stamp
The colors in this ad are actually my gir's FAVORITE colors--serendipity!
I had serious fun trying to figure out how to cut the arrows with my cameo!  I think it turned out pretty fun!
 closeups:
 Supplies: Simplicity Circle Paper (35801) - 5th & Frolic, 2nd & Oak Paper (35812) - 5th & Frolic, Little Moments Lane Paper (35808) - 5th & Frolic, Honey (71730) - Cardstock, 5th & Frolic Fabric & Epoxy Brads (85597) - Elements, Weekender Truffle (53395) - Thickers, Diara (53430) - Thickers, Fabric Stickers (42268) - 5th & Frolic Remarks
SUPER fun challenge--it really made me stretch and it was a GOOD stretch!
Thanks so much for the visit today!
