It's a "PINSPIRATION" kinda of day!

Who doesn't love Pinterest? Seriously, you can use it for everything!

Sometimes when you are lacking some inspiration for a project, you need some "pinspiration".

What is "Pinspiration"??? 

Choose an image from Pinterest and create a project inspired by that image.

Need an example...Keep reading our designers will show you!

Gabrielle Pollacco "I'm a little sad about summer being over but then I really do LOVE the Fall. I wanted to really get into the 'Autumn' mood so I was browsing autumn photos on Pinterest. I just fell in love with this photo...."

Pinspiration by Gabrielle Pollacco

Bo Bunny's Autumn Song collection is just filled with the gorgeous colors in this photo, so of course I had to reach for this collection to scrap this photo of my oldest daughter that I took in front of a field of tiger lilies.

I just love the way Bo Bunny blooms come in so many beautiful colors and styles, made to compliment all their patterned papers!

Designer Tip: A fun way to frame your photo is to layer it with a larger photo. Here I used photo editing software to soften the edges of my photo. I then printed off the same photo in 2 sizes 4x6 and 5x7 and simply layered them. This creates an interesting frame for your main photo.

Rhonda Van Ginkel "I loved this pretty color board:"

Today was Amazing By Rhonda Van Ginkel

I loved that the colors in this honeymoon photo of my husband and I coordinated so nicely with the Pinterest color board. 

You'll see quite a few pieces of our Noteworthy items here. After I assembled my design I really wanted to accent the arch at the top so I pierced a border around it.

Designer Tip: Don't be afraid to use pieces from your Dimensional Stickers! On this page I have taken just the sentiment piece off of the sticker. The "You & Me" and the "Love" are downsized and worked so nicely on the page.
