Inspiration Board Projects

At every 4 Crafty Hearts Getaway all participants receive a welcome gift.  In this gift is LOTS of double-sided patterned paper, card stock, envelopes, and embellishments including ribbon, twine, and buttons.  You are free to do whatever you’d like with your gift.  Some people crack it open, look through it, and decide to take it home to work on at another time.  No problem!

Other people open the gift and start getting creative with it right away!  To provide you with some inspiration, should you choose to work with items from your welcome kit, 4 Crafty Hearts create what we call our “Inspiration Boards.”  In creating these boards, each of the four of us took a welcome kit and let our creative juices flow!  We made scrapbook layouts, cards, tags, boxes, bows, and bookmarks!  I really enjoyed seeing how each of the four of us used the papers and embellishments in different ways.  (And was really flattered if someone at the crop decided to “scrap lift” one of our creations!!)

To help participants recreate our projects we provide a list of tools, papers (including sizes), and embellishments that are needed.

We created seven Inspiration Boards for our crop in November.  Starting tomorrow, we’ll be sharing one Inspiration Board a week.  We’ll take a closer look at the projects and share what the photos don’t tell you- our thoughts, what we love, what was tricky, and some tips to help you recreate our paper crafts!  We hope you enjoy them!
