Hi, and welcome to Inspiring Creations. My name is Bernadette Love. I founded Inspiring Creations in 1998 out of a real need. I really needed business cards for the janitorial service that I owned and I couldn't find what I wanted. I wanted cards that showed potential customers that my janitorial service was a cut above the rest. I wanted them to be special and remembered, not the kind of cards that people get and stick in a pocket and forget or use them as notepads. After playing around with different ideas, I finally came up with my dream cards. Whenever I handed them out, I got the reaction that I was looking for. Soon, people were asking me to create the same type of cards for them.
As a part-time business, I was asked to design a souvenir book for a church's 100th anniversary. I was hired to typeset a book for a local author and design the cover, then I was asked to create a magazine for women. Before long I had to concentrate my attentions on the desktop publishing business full time. I didn't mind because this was my heart's desire anyway. I had studied graphic design at Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas, and I was getting a chance to put all of that tuition money to good use.
I had an opportunity to visit my sister who lived in Hawaii on a Marine base. One day she asked me about a special gift for her husband who was being promoted. She wanted something unique, something that hadn't been done before. This gave birth to my creating custom military plaques. It did not take long before I was asked to make plaques for retirements, promotions and some "just because."
I soon began developing unique designs such as memorial, graduation, Greek and wedding
plaques. Other areas of my expertise include: web design, book cover design, logo design, souvenir
books and programs. Because this is something that I love to do, none of this feels like work me. I look
forward to sharing this gift of creativity that God has given me with you.
On a personal note, I am the proud mother of Andrea and Brandon and the super proud grandmother
of Lauryn, Jayden, Alexander, Andrew, Ashton and Ava. I am blessed to be the founder of The Word for Women Network, a ministry for the women of God. You can visit The Word for Women Network at

blessings with you!
