Inspired by All the Little Things - featuring Lisa Elton

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!

This week I have invited Lisa Elton to be my guest as our Creative Designer! Lisa and I have been friends since we began blogging as we both started our blogs in 2011. We were both among the first handful of followers on each other's blogs. Lisa currently designs for Pretty Pink Posh and she is also a designer at the 12 Kits of Occasions. Visit her blog is is full of the most wonderful creations. I asked Lisa a few questions about herself to share with you today...

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

My blog is called My Paper Tales. I began blogging in April of 2011 after discovering blogs and design teams of various stamp companies. I liked the idea of a place to share my work, try my hand at challenges and meet others who shared the love of stamping.

2. What is your style of card making?

I don't think I have one particular style. Clean lines without too much fuss are what I like best. Pretty papers, die cuts and a few embellies along with my stamping make me happy. I like to mix it up to keep my readers interested!

3. Who inspires you as a designer?

There are far too many to name! This is a talented crafting community!

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

Everything! Other card makers, fabric, nature, magazines. You name it, my mind can spot a card in just about anything!!

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

Well...on warm days when I'm driving alone, I like to open all my car windows, moon roof too and crank up my U2 CD to a sonic level!!  

 Here is a card that Lisa created just for this challenge. Isn't it delightful?

The challenge designers have also created a card for this week's inspiration! These ladies just inspire me SO much!!! I hope you will play along with us this week! We would love to have you join us!
