It's OK if you put down any that are mentioned by other people...feel free to add any extras as a resource for everyone who reads this


  1. Hi Kate,

    I currently have 388 blog subscriptions in my Google Reader. Selecting only three favorites is though.

    These the websites I read EVERY single day.
    I am so inspired by Kelly's daily journal pages, links to other artists, and best of all her suggestions on pens, books, and paper resources.
    I am inspired by Gail's daily journey with metal clay.
    Kim is a friend a fellow teacher at Scrapbook Cupboard. I love reading her blog to see what she is up to everyday creating with Ten Seconds Studio, Stampscapes, Copics, and Ranger products.

    Hope these inspire you as well.


  2. OK Kate, here you go:

    and on the fiber tip:


  3. Check these out for some fun ideas, reviews, tutorials and even food gifts! (this used to be a blog it just got transitioned to a full site - a friend sent me here for some great cookie packaging ideas) (I got to meet Lauren - she has some great downloadable paper templates and share her adventures in parenting too!)

  4. Impossible to name just 3 - there are too many talented artists out there. Here are some of my favorites:
    Becca is my ABSOLUTE favorite. I never miss an update. She is a master in using Spellbinder dies, copic coloring and bows. BEAUTIFUL work!!! If she ever gave a class locally, I AM THERE!!!

    Faith is talented and creative on so many levels...never miss hers either

    Yvonne's work is beautiful and she is an expert in coloring with Distress Inks...another never miss

    All of these are inspirations for me and talent to aspire to!

    Others that I have to view regularly include:

    the encyclopedia for using copic markers:

    Beautiful layering, coloring, use of dies: the entire design team for Our Daily Bread Designs - names here:

    Note that you may or may not appreciate the type of stamps -they are primarily Christian in content -but all of the Team are members of multiple Teams and I love the style of their work.

    Same for all of the Design Team members of Flourishes: names are listed on the Blog:

    A very talented team of artists.

    And then the big gallery at SplitcoastStampers - there is every level of stampers and designers with the widest array of styles and challenges.

    I hope you find some inspiration in some of these talented artists! Thanks for the opportunity to share!

  5. have to agree...can't pick just three!
