Inspiring Others!

Yesterday after service, the college and early career group members were meeting downstairs in my church's basement for Sunday School as we always do.  One of the guys who just graduated college and is going into law school or something law-related, I believe, arrived and said, "Rachel, I have to show you something."  I was like, "You have to show something to me?" as he searched for whatever it was on his phone.  These are the two things that he showed me:

Haha, he had used my cards as an inspiration to make his own cards to give to people!  I thought it was hilarious and also very flattering!  Here are the ones I made:

(This is actually the FIRST card I made when I got my Cricut using Simply Charmed, so the sizing of everything was so off, haha.  I still have it in my card box!)

I just HAD to share it with all of you!  Though I may still feel like a newbie crafter since I'm still learning about my own style and personal tastes, it warmed my heart to know that someone was looking at my work and actually being encouraged by it!


  1. What an awesome story! That is the biggest compliment! Your cards are so cute.

  2. @Jocelyn: I really did see it as a compliment! He was cute too because when I asked him to send me the pictures, he posted them on my wall and wrote, "Please don't mention this on my wall. I gave these cards away. I like to pretend that I'm original lol." Haha.

  3. That is so stinkin cute! :) Go boy crafters! and darn it, your title collage is making me want to go out for sushi...

  4. @Cely: Isn't it? When he showed me, I immediately thought about showing all of you guys! And yes, it's always the right time for SUSHI!

  5. That's cute. And btw, that popsicle card is totally amazing.

  6. Congratulations you been spotted at pinkcricut on this card.

    wooot woot...

  7. @Kristen: I can't wait to see what else he makes!

    @Docerela: Thank you! I was so excited when I went to Sarah's site and saw my card!
