Inspiration Friday - Inspired by Travel

Did you take any fantastic and magical trips this summer? One of my absolute favorite things in the world is waking up in a new city bound for adventure. I imagine you've found abundant inspiration from your travels.

I searched the web for a variety of images of locations all over the globe, and here is a look at a few of my favorite finds:

Travel fuels my soul! Whenever I return from one trip, I'm dreaming of the next one. What's you're dream destination?

My Favorite Things has lots of great products to help you make travel-inspired cards. Let's take a look at some awesome projects that will inspire you to adventure filled designs!

MFT Color Challenge 52

We're here again with another MFT Color Challenge! Join us as we create with this week's color combination. 

This challenge features soft colors to inspire you  Primitive White, Berrylicious, Grout Gray, and Cement Gray.

Create cards, scrapbook layouts, home decor, treat containers, mixed media, etc. using this color combination and be sure to link your project below for a chance at a My Favorite Things Gift Voucher worth up to $20.

Your My Favorite Things Creative Team can't wait to share their inspiring projects using this color palette. Let's see what has been going on in their creative minds.

These soft colors have a wintry feel to them, so Barbara created a peaceful scene for this lovely holiday card. Majestic gray mountains are the perfect backdrop for our gorgeous Birch Trees Die-namics.

Keeway's take on Color Challenge 52 is completely different! She features a pretty kitty from our Cool Cat stamp set in a window with lovely patterned curtains. It kind of makes me want Berrylicious shutters on my house!

This mostly neutral color palette really gives the chance for one color to shine. Joy does just that by using Berrylicious for the flowers from the Flashy Florals stamp set. Wouldn't this card be a delight to receive in the mail?
