Here is board #1:



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


I have had a vision of using the file tab framelit to make a stacked layout for photographs and I love how this turned out!  It’s a great way to get even more pictures onto a page…something I am always trying to do because I can never narrow down my favorites :).  What you can’t see in the picture is the fun polka-dot paper underneath each of the paper tabs and the message on the tag – “Life doesn’t have to be perfect to be wonderful!”


I have been waiting for an opportunity to use my bow-builder punch and this was the perfect time…simple and fun, accented with green polka-dots peeking around the edges.


A great way to use the pinwheel die cut!  I did not have any sticks on hand, so it is made out of rolled up paper.  This card makes me think SPRING!


I never have enough cards for baby showers in my collection and this is perfect for just that!  Simple and perfect for a boy or a girl!  What may be difficult to see in the picture is the small heart on the alligator image, which I highlighted with a dot of Crystal Effects on each.


Can you see it?!?  This card feels a little camouflaged, and I love it!  A simple way to make a bandage and send love to someone not feeling well.


Here in New York, we are stuck in the heart of winter and we cannot wait to break out our umbrellas soon!!!  I love this simple card with a repeating image, as well as the supportive message.  I used Crystal Effects on all the polka-dots in each umbrella to give it a bit of texture, too.

Next week we’ll have another Inspiration Board to share with you!
