Smile Blogs that inspire your cardmaking

There are so many wonderful blogs.....which ones give you the most inspiration and spark your creativity? I enjoy visiting blogs that are updated frequently, show lots of photos and provide details of products used. Outside of your own personal blogs, which do you frequent the most?

The blogs I enjoy don't necessarily meet the parameters you listed, so I'll just suggest that they've shared lots of blogs over in the blogs/blogging forum, HERE.

HTH!

Blogs that inspire my creativity will inspire my cardmaking/scrapbooking/decorating, etc.
I recently found this one that inspired me to set mine to music!
http://michellemadethis.blogspot.com/
And here's mine with it's newly added music (including the numa numa song for my daughter!:
http://erin-ramble.blogspot.com/

And here are some of my favorites to look at:
http://karlastudio5.typepad.com/
http://lunarlana.typepad.com/livelaughlove/

I really need to start marking some. I click on people's blog from their signature line all the time, and I forget to save them!
Karla's is my favorite for inspiring my creativity, though. She came to one of my crops once, and I was so looking forward to meeting this wonderfully creative person...she was so shy she never came back! I mean she is SHY in person! But totally entertaining in her blog. I truly love both sides of her!
Great thread, by the way!

Oh my gosh, there are SOOO many wonderful blogs out there. Best thing to do is surf around. Click on a link in someone's siggy, then check out what's in their favs. Then when you find a site you like, bookmark it. Then check out THAT person's favs, and so on. You will have a huge list in no time.

Also, Dawn McVey (Dawnsing) has a really clean and classic style:

There are so many bloggers that I like to visit and get inspiration. I have several favorites: Cindy Haffner: http://cindyhaffnerscorner.blogspot.com/ and Stampin with Markie’s Mom: http://stampinwithmarkiesmom.blogspot.com/

When I first got into stamping Marie was my SU Demonstrator when her husband was stationed at Laughlin. What I love about Marie’s style are her clean crisp lines: http://bootstostamps.typepad.com/

These are just a few that I have in my favorites on my computer, but my the 3 I always check first!

It really is difficult to pick just one because I am constantly seeing new and creative blogs out there. And, I seem to add more to my blog roll every day!!

Here are some really good ones with great tutorials and ideas:

I Like Markers

Zindorf's blog

Pretty Pressings

I have my blog roll separated by the challenge sites I visit, the companies I purchase from, my inspiration blogs, and my blogger group here on SCS. If you want to see them, go to mine and look on the sidebar:

Southern Yankee Crafter

Hope this helps some!!

Nancy

I tend to go to stamp designers and company blogs: stuff is current, updated frequently, fun (sometimes amazing!) blog candy, details for cards/papercrafts included. Right now my faves are:

Nichole Heady (PTI) - nicholeheady.typepad.com
Gina K's blog - blog.ginakdesigns.com

You can surf to their design team members and guest star stampers from there- easy peasy.

HTH!

I'll put in another vote for Nichole Heady (PTI) and Cindy Haffner...though I have to say it's mostly the style of cards I go for when I return to a blog over and over....not so much the quality of the blog itself.

I do click on everyone's blog on here when I am looking for inspiration...or if I see a card in the gallery I love, I track down the creator's blog.

Wow, there are too many wonderful blogs to mention them all. I have quite a few listed on my blog. My all time favorites are Nichole Heady and Debbie Olsen (both of which are linked above). There are a bunch of others that I have to read regularly, too.
