Default IC712 (7/27/2019 Pinterest Board-Needle Minders

Good Saturday Morning & welcome to the Inspiration Challenge! It's my turn to list a challenge today and hope you have fun with it. I have chosen one of my Pinterest boards for you to work with: Needle Minders. I have over 200 pins on this board. Hope I don't have duplicates, though possible. If you aren't familiar with needle minders, they are a magnetic device to rest your needle on when taking a break ...so it doesn't get lost.

Today's site is full of something I really like and hope you will, also. If you needlepoint, cross stitch, embroidery, etc., you may find this a useful item to purchase. A lot of my board came from ebay or etsy but not all. I just love needle minders because they are handy and so cute. Of course, you don't have to stitch in order in find something to create for a card or project.


Find something that inspires you, play along, and let us know what inspired you. I am excited to see all the creations.

Use Keyword: IC712

Here's my card: Loons in the Lake

Did you know, we have anInspiration Challenge Pinterest Board? Be sure to check it out!

For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many, or too little, images to choose from, & since some sites have limited viewing areas, I've uploaded MANY images to help inspire you. So just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration. Click on the images below to see them bigger and to get their links on SCS.


**Please note: If you are unable to view the Inspiration Site in your country, please use one of the pictures provided for you (thumbnails below). Unfortunately, we have no control over the sites' viewing areas. **

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 ~ 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 us on this inspiration journey.

NEED HELP LINKING A CARD? FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Open 2 windows. One for your card, one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type what you want to show before the link.
3. Go to your card window, highlight the address for your card. (The address bar will say
//www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...stampers.....)
4. Click edit. Click Copy.
5. Go back to this thread. Click Paste.


NEED HELP GETTING A LINK TO YOUR INSPIRATION PICTURE?

If you are unable to grab the link of your chosen picture, (on some sites, you can't, it only gives a link to the whole collection), hover over the picture in the collection that you want to link to. On a windows machine, right click the picture (on a Mac, 2 finger click). When the options come up, select COPY IMAGE ADDRESS. This link will be for that picture.

I just had to pop in here to say I am just enchanted by these needle minders! I have never heard of these! Oh, how I wish I had known they existed; I would have gifted many to my sweet Mother who was an accomplished seamstress and quilter. She always had little scraps of fabric laying around with her needles stuck in them for various projects she was working on! Thanks for a great board, Brenda. I hope to have time to play this week

I didn't realize my choice was one of suggestions above. I guess Brenda and I both liked it!

Smile IC712 Beecher's lavender

Thanks Brenda for a great site- I was inspired by this needle minder, so I repurposed this cheese sandwich wrapper from the Seattle airport- paired it with this partially fussy cut stamped image of a bunch of lavender. Added a simple double ribbon treatment. Here's Beecher's lavender

What a clever idea, I was always misplacing my needle.
I was inspired by the fox:
