That’s exactly what this fabulous lady, Beth Byrd, of Pretty Byrd Designs helps you do through her hand crafted paper genius.
I met Beth several years ago, and have been a huge fan of her work ever since. I really love her sense of style, the romance and sentiment that she captures in everything she does. She handcrafts special cards for every occasion imaginable, makes gorgeous keepsake boxes, gift tags, and unique journals.
When I asked Beth about her inspirations, she said, “I tend to focus on flowers, botanical images and nature. Vintage style items have always caught my eye and I’m in love with the “shabby chic” style. I use lots of lace, burlap, and distressed-looking embellishments in my creations. There are so many sources for inspiration – nature, magazines, books, a scrap of paper or a piece of fabric. Walking through the craft shops is always exciting … but can be expensive!!”
