Welcome to Magazine Monday! Today we’re kicking off the fourth and final round in our exciting Gallery Idol competition. The Top 5 finalists were given their inspirational image last Friday and then had the weekend to create their ”Inspired By” cards for this week’s round of voting. I can’t wait to see how each one interprets our fun image of summer preserves!
With this week’s special theme, I thought I would spotlight the fun image and project from the Inspired By column of our July/August 2010 issue. We sent Paper Crafts Go-to Gal (and former bartender) Kim Hughes this picture and said, “How does this inspire you?”
Isn’t Kim’s card inspiring? You could even turn it into a invitation for a summer pool party…just print out all the details on the inside of the card and mail it out to all your friends. Or, how about place cards for your guests? Just write your guests’ names on the base of the glass. The possibilities are endless!
Speaking of endless possibilities, I know our Top 5 finalists are each going to take a creative approach with this inspiring image:
