I love Jim the Gentleman Crafter. He is full of spunk and creative ideas. Great teacher.

I also enjoy Anita's blog The Artful Maven Haven She shows the most amazing projects etc. I have tried a lot of products after I saw how she uses them (like embossing paste for instance)

I created a couple of Pinterest Boards to bookmark some of my favorites: the first one consists of SU Demonstrators, the second one other stampers/crafters.

SU Demonstrator Blogs
Stamper/Crafter Blogs

I also made a note of each persons SCS name in { }.

Well, I'm kinda biased since I write for them but I do love www.CraftGossip.com I'm the stamping editor but we have separate blogs for just about every craft too.

Checking out all these wonderful sites. It's nice to see faces (on Pinterest) with some of the names I always see on SCS.

I use Pulse to keep track of my blogs and it makes the whole process really easy and enjoyable. It's hard to describe, but you open your Pulse on your desktop or tablet, and you have pages. Each page will be filled with whatever blogs you want to follow, with the most recent post listed first. I lay in bed on Sunday morning and check out what happened during the week, and it's so easy to flip through till I find a post I want to read. https://www.pulse.me/

Default Favs?

One of my favorite places to go for creative inspiration are old stamp and paper craft magazines. I love curling up with these old friends and becoming inspired over and over again. Even though the magazine may be dog-earred, it's like reading it for the first time. It's fun to watch certain trends come and go and then there are always the classic designs that never go out of style.

I'm a hands-on kind of person so would much prefer touching and seeing something in person vs. spending hours on the computer---that's just me!

StampTV (Gina K), Jennifer McGuire's blog, Paper Truffelz (Julie Ebersole), Ellen Hutson all have great ideas.

I jut made a beautiful book card from a video on YouTube by Christina Griffiths. I am shocked that I love her work since I have been a card maker and scrapbooker who goes for simple and graphic. I also subscribed to Kittie Krafts blog. Sorry I don't have the links but they are easy to find.

I think SCS has tons of inspiration on it but I also follow Technique Junkies, You Tube, Tim Holtz, Andy Skinner, Pinterest and Mel Stampz and Fruggel crafter.

Some of my favourite blogs:

Just a Pigment of my Imagination
Katina's Cards and Chat
Kath's Blog
Always with a Heart
Mrs B's Blog

and for fabulous colour inspiration and colour combinations:

Photo Card Boutique If you scroll down a little when you first get to this website, you will see the colour crush palette.

Hope this helps

I LOVED The Rubberstamper. I still miss it!

Take Ten and Stamper's Sampler give me inspiration now, but I miss the technique articles, etc. I also find lots of inspiration online. It's alot easier to take a magazine along to my MIL's house than try to be online on a smart phone, tho! Hopefully less rude, too
