crate paper: layouts inspired by cards

I'm sharing three layouts today here and also over on the Crate Paper blog. These layouts were created with cards as inspiration - something I've never done before. I thought it would be fun to recreate some of my favorite cards from Pinterest, but in a totally different way - on a layout! Even though I rarely make cards, I still pin lots of them because there are so many amazing card makers out there. I enjoyed the opportunity to use them as inspiration!

Here are the three lovely cards I chose...

Happy Birthday by Kelly Rasmussen

I Love You by Maggie Holmes

Hello You by Maile Belles

And here are the layouts they inspired...

So if you're looking for a different kind of inspiration, give cards a try. There are lots to be found on pinterest!

Below you'll find links to some of the products used on these layouts.
