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.

I about fell off my chair when I first saw this strikingly graphic card by Cristina Kowalczyk. This just goes to show you that simple designs can make a BIG impact:

Once again, Teri has “wowed” me with her ability to combine seemingly random elements in a fabulously ordered way:

My friend, co-worker, and partner in crime, Susan R. Opel, also has a seriously great board that features handmade card ideas. It is appropriately entitled—wait for it—I Puffy Heart This.

Go-to Gals Windy Robinson and Teri Anderson also have boards dedicated to handmade cards. Click HERE for Windy’s board, Love these CARDS, and HERE for Teri’s board called Neat Cards.
