Fashion Magazine Inspiration: Where Does It Come From?

By Hpranitis @_thisandthat_ Inspiration:  Where does it come from?
Blondie's Shop note cards.  And the creative "genius" inspiration behind them.  Note: the genius is me (if you didn't already know)! 
You know, it dawned on me the other day...I've never talked about "how" I make cards at Blondie's Shop.   Never! Can you believe that?  I'm talking about the inspiration, the concept of each design.  You know, the design concept.  You know "the prior" to putting the card together - the figuring out the "actual" design...cutting the paper, measuring ribbon, glue, ink color, etc.  You get what I mean, the "details" part.  
Don't worry, I'll explain the step-by-step, putting it together in another post.
Lately, I've had a few people comment and ask about the creativity behind the note cards at  The inspiration behind the ideas, color schemes, textures, embellishments...  The placement of all the details.  So, I thought I'd explain it here!
Hmmm, where does the inspiration come from...?  Oh where, oh where does it come from...?
Honestly, it comes to me at purely randomly times.  Purely random.  Seriously, it does.  Although, I must say, typically, it's while I'm in the car.  I'm in the car roughly 2-1/2 to 3 hours a day, commuting to and from work.  So, let's just say that I have time to think and ponder things...  Funny, right? Inspiration:  Where does it come from?

So, I was thinking about the Fashion Girl Cards in geometric shapes and colors of navy blue, ivory, fuchsia and gold.  I was pondering adding more pizazz.  You know, jazzing them up.  Add a little of ...this & that... to them!  Exciting, right?!  I like to think so.
...Oh, last week, the inspiration came from a friend.  Hence, yesterday's post with the bumble bee sneak peek...  I'm making the very special note card set(s) for her, however, she's graciously allowed me to create the bumble bee line! Yippee!  I can't wait! Stay tuned...
So...I search on Pinterest once the "inspiration" has hit... or Etsy if I know exactly what I'm looking for with regard to paper - you see, I use digital paper.  I can "reprint" the paper over and over (if need be).  More details on this process in the next post...
So, earlier this week...the inspiration was glitter, sparkle and girlie.  Oh, and fairy dust.  Here's what my Pinterest "search" pulled.... Inspiration:  Where does it come from?
