Beate's inspiration challenge for the week is to create something from this Crate & Barrel room layout. Before I read her post about the photo being from C&B, I took one look at it and thought, "that looks like a room in a C&B catalog" and sure enough, it was! I love C&B, though my house doesn't look anything like this! I am a big C&B gadget lover, though, especially anything in the kitchen!
My eye was first drawn to the bold diagonal striped rug and the first product I thought of was Basic Grey Ambrosia! So, that's how I began my creation.
Cardstock: CTMH; Patterned Paper: Basic Grey Ambrosia; Stamps: Verve, PTI (Sentiment); Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark; Cuttlebug embossing folder; Nestabilities; Embossing powder/heat gun; Scalloped scissors; Other: piercing tool, SU! word window punch, brads, ribbon (reasonableribbon.com).
