Spices — what would life be like without them? Pretty bland, if you ask me. Lucky for all of us, today’s steal, the Indie Chic Ginger Collection by My Mind’s Eye can add the perfect touch of zip to your day. The warming blends of yellows and reds were not only amazing to create with but made for some pretty cute cards! Then again, what My Mind’s Eye product out there has ever been a disappointment? That’s right, none of them. :)

Yes, it’s true — I’m a through and through, die-hard My Mind’s Eye fan. In fact I love My Mind’s Eye so much that I might even consider wallpapering my bedroom with the papers. The Indie Chic Ginger collection would be an amazing collection just for that purpose. However since I couldn’t clear the decor change with my hubby I settled for making cards.

I adore the fact that the Ginger collection focuses heavily on chevrons so I decided to base this week’s card sketch around them.

For my first card I had fun with a little fussy cutting. I added a strip of the amazing trim and twine and my card was complete.

Next I did a little more fussy cutting around the larger chevron design on this yellow and cream paper. Of course I had to put my washi tape from National Scrapbook Day to use and ended up with this cute lil’ number.

Here are a couple of more cards that I made using a border punch that kept in theme with the chevron design.

I even made one more card with this luscious collection and was so excited about it that I actually gave it away before I remembered to take a photo. Trust me. It was cute! :)

And in case you missed it, here is one more card and a layout of my beautiful oldest daughter on the night of her prom.

Isn’t the Indie Chic Ginger collection sa-weet?!
