Fall 2014 Inspiration Board #1

Yesterday we shared information about the Inspiration Boards that we have at all of our 4 Crafty Hearts Getaways.

Each week we will share one of the Inspiration Boards that were displayed at our Fall 2014 crop, and share some of our thoughts on our projects.

Here is the first Inspiration Board for your viewing pleasure:


Behind the Project: What the pictures don’t tell you…



I’m proud of this layout.  The pretty trees in the background make a wonderful backdrop for a simple layout where the patterns can be front and center and the Winter Wishes sentiment can float across the pages.



I love the “triptych” feel of the snowflakes stamped across the three tags in lots of shades of blue.  A triptych is very easy to accomplish.  Stamp a design on a sheet of white card stock, cut into thirds, and separate the thirds by a small space.  It’s that easy!



I’m slightly completely obsessed with my envelope punch board!!  I used it to make this file folder card.  Love, love, love it!



To mix things up a bit, I wanted this card to open off-center.  I love how it turned out with the ribbon closure!



Ah…my snowman card.  I’m proud of the change in perspective.  While this idea isn’t novel, I am happy with how it turned out.  Three different sized circle punches, a few scraps for the scarf and arms, black and orange markers, and there you have it! A super adorable card!



I was able to use so many scraps to complete this card!  It was super fast and easy to accomplish, with high impact.


I hope you enjoyed these projects! A pdf of the “guide” for this board will be emailed to all crafters who were at our November crop! 🙂
