Arrow IC571 - Bag Borrow or Steal {11-12-16}

I spent some of the best years of my youth in New York City (from age 15 to 30). As I recall, my favorite thing to do there was SHOP, SHOP, and then SHOP some more! However, the down side of my youth is that it definitely wasn't the wealthiest period of my life - LOL! So I got myself in big trouble 'charging it'! ... If only I had access to this week's inspiration site back then: it's just the right place to Bag Borrow and Steal whatever gorgeous and fun designer product you want, and your credit won't suffer a bit! The idea behind the Bag Borrow and Steal site is that if you can't find a steal to buy it, then you can just borrow it (ie 'rent' it)! What a cool idea! In any event, I found a ton of beautiful inspiration for paper crafters like us; shoes, bags, accessories and more! I'm sure you won't be disappointed, it is certain to get your creative juices flowing!

Challenge Goals:
Please don't be tempted to upload a card that you have made prior to this challenge, just because an image on the site reminds you of it - this is all about creating from an inspiration. So, please take the challenge of allowing your creative juices to flow based on the images you browse this week. Remember, it can just be the color palette or style that ignites your creativity. Whatever draws you to the designs, take the challenge of doing something uniquely inspired today.

Please remember that all inspiration links should come from the Bag Borrow or Steal website. Remember I'll be scoping for new mini-pins for my
Ongoing Inspiration Genius Board too! (smiles)

Use the keyword: IC571 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

Heart IC571 Holiday Bugs

Audrie- such an awesome site! I was inspired by the Speedy satchel by Vuitton and used the pine needles motif as both a die cut- and a reverse die cut for my corners. Went with a gold border with 2 large brads and yellow patterned washi tape to mimic the bag's handle. Added some stitching, and dry embossing for fun. Here's Holiday Bugs

Default Bag, borrow and steal for a friend

Here's my card. Love your challenges Audrie and love the Bag, Borrow or Steal site. What a great idea. I'm still gushing over the Christian Louboutin shoe but that's about as close to them as I will get. Too old for those heels now...well.....maybe to the car and back. 😁
Happy day and week.

Audrie, those shoes........here's my 2nd card as the first one just wasn't making me happy 😕 It must be the perfectionist in me.😁

Looking forward to more of your inspirational challenges. Happy day and week.

Here is my project: Bag Inspired Hello Card by zineth - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

and this is the bag that inspired my colors: Celine Tricolor Calfskin Medium Trapeze Bag


I had to giggle while surfing these purses. First I don't use a purse, but rather a very small wallet, that I bought off ebay for about $15. I love it and hope it never wears out. Seeing how much people spent on buying used OR heaven forbid "renting" a purse (that's a new one for me) makes me appreciate my frugality.


It was still fun to check out something new, fun challenge! TFL
