Photo Inspo!

This fortnight at Jingle Belles we have an amazing photo inspiration to spark your creativity! You can use as many (or few!) elements as you like from the picture; just be sure to tell us what inspired you if it isn't obvious!

How to make holiday Scandinavian wood snowflake ornaments. These simple wood plaque ornaments are easy to make and you can paint or stain the wood whatever color goes with YOUR holiday decor! 

I fell in love with that bright white fireplace, and the mantle bedecked with small white houses and rainbow colored trees. I had some ancient Studio Calico houses with exactly the right vibe; and the perfect size to pair with punched trees from every bright shade of glitter paper in my collection. I even found some non-holiday washi tapes to give the feeling of the bunting beneath the mantel, and anchor the little village. Rather than recreate the dangly banner, I expanded on the idea of a fantasty xmas landscape and added some sparkly clouds!

patterned paper: doodlebug, my mind's eye, studio calico + various rainbow scraps of glitter paper from dcwv, best creation and american crafts; tiny houses: studio calico; tree punch: fiskars; cloud punches: ek success; large tape:mt via the ink pad; skinny tape and pearl bling: eyelet outlet; glossy white cardstock: the paper cut; adhesives : elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, sookwang scor-tape, sewing machine

Be sure to hop over to Jingle Belles and see Stephanie's beautiful photo-inspired card and start thinking up what YOU will make! ♥


  1. One of my least favourite themes....a picture, they are always too busy and too many things to decided on. I'll just copy yours. it's perfect love how it emulates the mantle. That being said I have a few card ideas lol.

  2. I love the photo and I love your colourful card - those houses are a perfect match.
