EtsyInspired #62 Quiltish by Allisa Jacobs

This week's EtsyInspired shop is Quiltish by Allisa Jacobs. This is a really fun and cute shop specializing in zipper pouches, purses and baby gifts. What I really like about this shop is the amazing fabric selection she has! Cute and fun fabrics and even some that are organic. How awesome is that? I love the fun florals, the cute birds, the little ruffles she makes. And even the baby gifts are still really stylish, not too cutesy. Everything seems so fresh, I think it's the colors. There is definitely a lot of inspiration to be found here.

To play along with the challenge, all you have to do is go to the Quiltish by Allisa Jacobs shop and pick an item to be inspired by. Create any item that you'd like and post a link to your creation on the EtsyInspired 62 post on the EtsyInspired Challenge blog. Please link your entries by next Friday, Nov 20 by noon Pacific time. A winner will be chosen by random drawing and posted on the EtsyInspired blog that same day. If you upload to PCP or SCS, please use keyword EIC62.

This week, we have a VERY special sponsor! It'sMay Arts, the ribbon company! Eeeek! I am sooo excited! I would cover my house in May Arts ribbon and just bask in its beauty. Seriously, they have the most amazing ribbon. They have wide ric rac, scalloped edge ribbon, satin ribbon, silk ribbon, ribbon with cut outs, ribbon with pom poms, and the list goes on and on. Sigh...can you hear the dreaminess in my voice?? They are giving away this awesome back of Christmas ribbons shown here. How fun will this be for all your Christmas crafting?

Now, go be EtsyInspired!

I made two cards this week. Both of them are on Kraft card stock, both use the same May Arts ribbon, both have Amy Butler designer paper and both use Unity Stamps. (It's a little like stepping into AJ Otto's blog, huh?)

This first card is inspired by THIS zipper pouch. I had to make one of these cute paper posies. The sentiment is from Unity's Tiny Trinity. And the brad is Kaisercraft.
This second card is inspired by THIS Christmas Ornament. How perfectly does the stamp go with that ornament? The stamp is Unity's Trinity Trio.
