As trends editor for Paper Crafts magazine and in my role as host of the Moxie Fab World blog, it’s my job pleasure to inspire your card making on a daily basis. I am constantly on the look-out for the most inspiring products, the coolest techniques, and the most creative approaches to paper crafting I can possibly find.
Which is why I’m loving Pinterest so much. Nothing beats it as a visual bookmarking system, and while I had plenty of resources before Pinterest came along, now I have even more inspiring avenues through which to explore trends, gather inspiration, and collect visual libraries of the things in this world that matter to me the most.
Which, apparently, includes gathering my favorite handmade card ideas. Check out these lovely holiday cards I pinned recently.

And I don’t know about you, but Go-to Gal Betsy Veldman has duplicated the chalk board look so exquisitely on this trendy, trendy card, I could look at it all the day long:
