You're currently viewing Splitcoaststampers as a GUEST. We pride ourselves on being great hosts, but guests have limited access to some of our incredible artwork, our lively forums and other super cool features of the site! You can join our incredible papercrafting community at NO COST. So what are you waiting for?
A few weeks ago, I asked a co-worker to save her Kleenex box for me when it was empty. The design was so fun, I thought it would be great to use to die cut some flowers. This got me thinking about how inspiration is literally all around us … and how many times when I’m buying Kleenex, I think … that would make a cool card.
Well, this week we’re going to be inspired by Kleenex. For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many choices, I have uploaded three of my favorites from the website… so just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration.
For the rest of you, feel free to use any Kleenex design for your inspiration. I don’t think you can link directly to the pictures, so just let us know the size and design that you used.
Use the keyword: IC177 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.
How to Play ~ View the attached images. You may be inspired to recreate the pieces ~ but that isn't necessary ... get your inspiration from the colors, layout, style or 'theme'. Just enjoy wherever your inspired creative journey takes you. Make the inspiration piece your own. Don't worry ~ no card is 'wrong' and there is no time limit for uploading your card for the challenge. There are no rules, so let your creative juices run wild ~ be *inspired* and go get stamping!
Don't forget about No Upload Sunday - Let's give the gallery moderators a day off and not upload on Sunday (unless, of course, you are a Fan Club member - yet another reason to spend a little money on your favorite site). Also, remember to link to your SCS gallery on this thread. Thank you for joining me on this inspiration journey.

Oh my golly!! I was just holding a tissue box thinking it was a great looking dp!!! I debated for the longest time before I recycled it. Ugh!!! Not only could it have been inspiration, but the actual background. It was gorgeous. Oh well!
I think there will be a lot of 'junkies' admit that they too have saved Kleenex boxes for this very purpose.....um...myself included!!! Too bad I'm on the way out of town....will try to come back to it next week! Thanks for always having something fun for us, Stef!!
Well, I wanted to play today, but I can't seem to get to any box designs except for the ones on the front page. There are no links to see different kinds of designs, and I am not inspired by any of the front ones. If anyone can tell me what I am doing wrong that would be awesome. If not, I guess I just won't play today. Of course, I could go to the store!! LOL
Ohhh, since I don't seem to be able to stay up all night lately...I'll get to play right now. Thanks for the interesting challenge.

We have Kleenex boxes all over the office where I work. Every time I am in the ladies room, I look at the box and think what a pretty card it would make but have never made one. Today's my chance! Thanks, Steph.
