Sometimes, a girl just wants to mix patterns....


Have you ever watched 9 by Design? It's about this young, hip couple who are interior designers living in NYC with 9 kids.


Now, I admit, I watch a lot of TV. But the quality of the TV shows I watch have improved. Granted, it's still a reality show but I'm learning so much about decorating. I think this type of design also applies to paper-crafting.

Bob & Courtney have a contemporary style and are never afraid to mix old & new & patterns that would not normally mix together. They somehow make it work.

That's the inspiration for my card today. Used the papers from past Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients kits. Flowers are from Prima. The cute Darby & Penelope stamp is from ATS. It was a gift from the lovely Amy!

Such an adorable group of girls. I tried giving Darby curly hair, and as you can see I have some practicing to do. So glad that there's Color Me Copic, a new tutorial blog by some of my most fave bloggers and blenders! :)

It's been so hard finding a Copic Certification class around here!

Have an amazing weekend!

I love to watch decorating shows...I always get excited when I see people's reactions to the "new" space!:) My tv's always on the background when I craft...;)

And why wouldn't you want to mix patterns when you are a true master at it?! Love the fun and funky home you have created for Darby and Penelope to live in... awesome card Rinne!
