We're back to (P)inspire you again!

Happy (P)inspire Me Monday, everybody!


It's time for a brand new (P)inspiration board for you to keep that mojo flowin' all through August!

Leah here, and WHOA!  You guys seriously knocked the July (P)inspire Me projects out of the park and we loved seeing what inspiration each of you pulled from the selected images...  Today, we're going for bright and bold with a big outdoorsy, summery flair!  Without further ado, I give you.....

Your August (P)inspiration comes from:
kite - brolly bum - beachy - picasso - yellow buds - hexies - glammy

Those fun, primary colors!  Don't they just ooze with happy?  The sharp contrast between bright and black - don't these images just POP?!  And for the rebel in all of us, rules are for breaking, right?  We Paper Issues girls like to think outside the box, so this Picasso quote definitely speaks to us! 

Draw whatever inspiration you can from this mood board, and if you're inclined to play along, you can find this one among the August challenges in our Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} group on Facebook.    

Maybe you'll be (P)inspired like Mary-Ann by the bright blue sky and bold red and yellow combination...
She rocked the Bella Blvd supplies on this one, and I am LOVING those little silhouette critter pals!

Or maybe by Tarrah's fab page - I don't think that blue sky could be any BLUER!  And just look at that gorgeous VIEW!  I would agree that's pretty momumental...

And Kelly's page features lots of happy primary colors from Life Documented from Simple Stories - kinda loving the woodgrain (reminiscent of the beachy photo from the collage) and that photo makes me laugh!

I don't think Corri could have chosen a more perfect photo for this one - how cute are
those littles with the umbrellas? And black doilies to make it all pop?  YES, PLEASE!
(We have THESE polka dot doilies from Doodlebug in the Paper Issues shop - YUM!)

Orange Gearle rocked these fun paper strips and did some of her gorgeous signature stitching on this bright and happy page...  It TOTALLY captures her daughter's little pixie spirit!  Love those Shimelle wood dots!

And my page, featuring some of the new Crate Paper Wonder and Fancy Pants So Rad goodies...  The hexagons, the stripes in the quote, and those glorious pops of red...  Those were my inspiration!

When you play along with ANY of the August challenges, share your projects to the designated album in our Facebook group and your submission will get you an entry to win one of two gift certificates to the Paper Issues shopCLICK HERE to check it all out and share your (P)inspired projects!  

And here's a little reminder - you might want to check out the shop to see what new stuff has arrived!  There have been re-stocks on the new and super hot Wonder collection from Crate Paper and the July Swag Bag is available (but hurry!) - and you can use this to save 20% off your entire purchase, anytime!
