Inspired by All the Little Things - featuring Stephanie Klauck

Hello and welcome to Inspired By All The Little Things! This is a weekly inspiration challenge blog and each week we feature a wonderful designer who inspires us as an artist!

Happy Saturday! Tracey here as your hostess for this week. I will be the hostess on the forth week of every month. The photo I have chosen as my inspiration is a gorgeous succulent bridal bouquet. I am a little bit crazy for succulents right now and when I saw this photo and the colours I new it was perfect for my debut challenge.

This week I have invited the amazingly talented Stephanie Klauck as my guest. You may already know her from the My Favorite Things Design Team and her fantastic videos on YouTube. I am so happy to have her join us as my guest this week. 

I asked Stephanie to share a bit about herself...

1. What is the name of your blog? When and why did you start it?

The name of my blog is Round Here. I started it after I got more involved in the online craft world and wanted to be able to share my scrapbook layouts and cards with online friends and fellow crafters.

2. What is your style of card making?

It's pretty much clean and simple... I love white space. But I do like to mix it up a bit and I'm always up for trying new techniques and design ideas. I love clear sequins (with silver Stickles centers) and use them on almost every card I create. 

3. Who inspires you as a designer?

There are so many designers that inspire me... way too many to name. I think the biggest inspiration to me are designers who create because they love to create. There is nothing more inspiring to me that seeing another designer create something and want to share it with the world because they truly enjoyed the process and ended up creating something they loved. That, to me, is inspiration.

4. What sort of things inspire you as a card maker? Photos? Sketches? Other designers?

Anything and everything. Ads in magazines, home decor, fashion, nature. Inspiration is literally everywhere. You just have to slow down long enough to see it. ;)

5. Share something about yourself that we may not know?

When I started paper crafting, I was strictly a scrapbooker. The first time I walked into a craft store that carried stamps (and not just the rolls of stickers that I was obsessed with lol!) I looked at my husband and said... 'I can't believe people pay this much for stamps. I will never be a stamper.' 

Now, I don't think I create anything without something stamped on my project. ;)

Thank you Stephanie for sharing your story with us.  Here is Stephanie's card she created for us using this week's inspiration as a cue!

I have also created a card for this week's inspiration! I hope you will play along with us this week! We would love to have you join us!

We hope you will play along with us!
