Splitcoaststampers.com - the world's #1 papercrafting community
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?
This week's inspiration website is "Poketo" -- an online shop for design-driven wares that takes art off the gallery walls and into people’s lives. To date, the shop has collaborated with over 200 international artists to produce lifestyle wares that infuse art in daily living. "Poketo’s" line of wallets, stationery, housewares, accessories, and apparel have appeared in New York Times Magazine, The Los Angeles Times, Real Simple, Dwell, Entertainment Weekly and more. I hope you'll check it out and play along this weekend!
Since original art is represented in many of the pieces on this website, please remember to link directly back to the item that inspires you so proper credit is given to the artist.
If you don't have time to spend browsing "Poketo", attached are a few samples from the website that you are welcome to use as your inspiration!
How to Play ~ View the attached sample images and/or browse the suggested website. Get your inspiration from the the individual items, style, patterns, theme or color pallets. Just enjoy wherever your inspired and creative journey takes you! Make the inspiration piece your own! Don't worry ~ no card is 'wrong'! There is no time limit on this challenge and there are no rules. Explore and enjoy ~ be *inspired* to create, have fun, and share your artwork!!
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.

Anne- great site, lots to choose from I went with the Poketo Wrapping Paper Packs with their garden theme and vivid colors. My background papers are from a floral calendar, and I used Hambo stamps' Round Ladybug and Hampton Art's Cling Butterflies for my insects. Finished with a multicolored floss knotted bundle around the fastener. Here's Garden Flowers
