Go girlie for fall

When I saw this photo, I knew we just had to have it as a color inspiration this month. The hard metals with the soft colors of pink just reminded me of fall fashion. I love wearing gold in the fall and I love to pair it with pinks and blacks. I think it's so chic and fresh and a break from all the dark colors. Now make sure to scroll down and see how Christy and Elizabeth used this color inspirations in a girlie way ;)


Up first is our newest team member Elizabeth:

Hey there Elizabeth here to talk to ya about being a girl. Yep that's right, we're going to talk about girlie stuff!!!

You see this subject is near and dear to my heart! Not just because I am a girl, that's obvious! However it's taken me quite a few years to actually embrace being a girl! I didn't really know how to be feminine, meaning I didn't really know how to embrace that or accept myself growing up. I always felt unfeminine because of a preconceived notion of what that meant and had to be.
My journey started about 5 years ago realizing that I was created as a beautiful woman and I shouldn't have any notions other than that! I can attest that being a girlie-girl is something I have embraced fully! I now love to shop for clothes, accessories, shoes, purses, and more so to embrace who I am and how I was created!
I love being a girlie-girl!

When I was choosing this color inspiration the very first thing I thought about was "pretty in pink"! I used to dislike pink a lot, but in my transformation I have learned to love it! It is one of my favorite colors today!

My girlie inspiration allowed me to create this:

{A layout of myself and my dear friend Melissa who I am very thankful is in my life and has helped me along my journey}

As luck would have it, our products are oozing with girlishness so it was easy to create a fun project! I used many different collection lines for this one and I simply love how it turned out! So pink and so me!!!!!

Hoping that you embrace you girlie-girl side too because we are all beautiful women, be inspired!!!!
And last but not least... Our beautiful Crafty Christy:

Though fall colors are beautiful for Thanksgiving cards, I'm a pretty girly girl and I love being given a pretty girly card. I was inspired to create some cards using the color combo below that I could give to some special friends for Thanksgiving.

Drawing my shades of pink from these papers:

(Material Girls line - A Girl's Best Friend)

(Material Girls line - Pucker Up)

(Material Girls line - Girly Girl)

and using some velvet flowers from this paper,

(Soul Food line - Soulfield)

I was able to create some very feminine thank you cards that could be used for Thanksgiving, or to remind some special people how important they are to me at any other time of the year!
