Inspirational Post by Jules

Well hello my fellow crafters,

It's Jules here with my inspirational post for this month and I must say I'm sorry as I did promise other things besides cards but I couldn't help myself this month as I have three wedding cards ordered and when we got delivery of this amazing new range of digital patter papers from Donna I just had to do a card.

This beautiful new range is called "LOVE STRUCK" and it is absolutely stunning and I'm not what you would call a pink girl, it's something I generally steer clear of.

Now don't you agree with me it's beautiful, make sure you head on over to Bearly Mine Designs and make sure you grab this one.
There is also some amazing new Christmas paper sets and of course a new Halloween set too.
So here is my card and make sure you pop on over to my blog Cremen Creations where you'll be able to see some extra photo's of my card. This is the second of the three ordered, only have one more to go and the wedding isn't until May 2015 so I have a little bit of time left.
So I hope this may bring some inspiration to some of you as I had a lot of fun creating this card and I must say the lady who ordered it was very pleased.
Happy Crafting

Inspirational Post by Kym - October 2014

Hello it is Kym here and today it is my turn to show you an inspirational project for the Bearly Mine Inspiration and Challenge Blog.
Here is a Halloween inspired card that I have made.  I do so love making Halloween cards/creations although we don't really celebrate it much here in the UK.
The backing paper is from the Bearly Mine Design set called "Halloween Fantasy".  I like this set of Halloween papers as you have the traditional Halloween colours of orange and black but then there are different colours like blues, reds and purples.

Full details of the card can be found at my blog.

I hope you have enjoyed my little inspirational post.

Keep popping back to see more inspiration from the Bearlymine Girls.

This card's background  features the designer paper from the Halloween Fantasy and Mini Dots paper packs that you can get at the Bearly Mine Designs Store.

A Lavinia topper (not just for pretty cards)
Spellbinder Fairy Die
Wooden Letters

And a bucket (for collecting her candy of course)lol

Jacqui' Inspiration 3rd October

I made a man's card again woo hoo i'm on a roll lol

Hi there Guys, Gals & fb pals It's my turn to inspire you today so i've made a man's card (as you can see by the pic & my little celebration statement) lol.  This is actually the 2nd male card i've made recently and as I don't do men's card (like quite a few of you i'm told) so  i'm pretty chuffed with myself lol. Anyway for this card I used the Black & White Essentials Collection from the Must Have Basic Digi Sets.  I used 3 of the papers and the frame also comes in the collection & i've used it too.  I used 1 paper for the back ground then cut 2 others in strips & I matted all of them with black.  I cut out my frame added the motorbike a Tonic die sentiment & a few cogs & although you can't see it here I actually added a little glitter to the frame & cogs centres.  So I hope I really have inspired you and look forward to seeing your creations in our challenge.

Right onto information about the challenge.

The Bearly Mine Designs challenge for October 2014 is “Halloween”. We don’t go into Halloween so much here in the UK but it’s nice to have a topic for a challenge that is celebrated elsewhere in the world.
If you are stuck for some Halloween papers, Bearly Mine Designs recently released a set called "Halloween Fantasy".  This is a fantastic set of papers as you have the traditional Halloween colours of orange and black but you also have green, purple, blue and red so you can make very different Halloween cards/creations.
There is another Halloween set in the shop and personally it is still one of my all time favourites.  It is called “Halloween Hauntings”. What I personally like about this set is that there are Halloween inspired papers but there are also papers in the set that could be used throughout the year which makes it so much more cost effective.

Here is some inspiration from the Design Team. They have created some wonderful cards/creations for you to see.
