I am pleased to be filling in for Steph this week as Guest Hostess!
Today we are taking a trip to Salt Lake City, Utah, where my lovely daughter lives! On our stop, we are perusing the wares of Olive & Cocoa, a catalog and web-based direct marketing company started by a husband and wife team.
"Olive & Cocoa specializes in unique, design driven gift crates and floral arrangements. Our gifts are gracefully packaged inside handcrafted wood boxes and dressed with a satin ribbon and an elegant gift card. Gift packaging is included with every product we sell -- there are never any additional charges for our unique and stylish wrapping! From gourmet food crates, to timeless executive gifts, inspired décor, whimsical fashion accessories, and luxurious spa items, our gifts have been carefully selected to offer a refreshingly modern approach to traditional gift giving."
For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many choices, I’ve uploaded five of my favorites … so just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration.
The rest of you, remember to let us know which item from Olive & Cocoa that inspired you.
Use the keyword: IC352 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your keywords.
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. Remember, if you are inspired by the creation of another artist, please do not use print-outs of the art in your creation or directly copy their work. 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.
Made a Happy Birthday card for my dear mother in law- inspired by Boho Chic Hobo Bag in Turquoise- I used SU's Riveting for my greeting, a nice stamp from Graphic 45 dp, and some ribbon and rickrack. Here's Best Wishes
Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
