Papertrey Ink & Pinterest

by cbaptista on 02/09/2012

I just recently got on the Pinterest bandwagon.  And, I must say, what a great place for crafty inspiration!  So, what is Pinterest?  It’s basically a virtual pinboard.  You pin things you find on the internet that you want to reference later.  You can search on Pinterest too and re-pin things of interest.  The best thing is that it remembers the source of the pin so that you can go back to the original link.  I’ve had a Pinterest board for awhile now but only recently really started to use it.  But, with the announcement over at Papertrey Ink that they now have Pinterest boards categorized by project, you can bet I’ll be using Pinterest a lot more in the future.  What a great source of PTI specific inspiration!  Check it out

So, in honor of their presence on Pinterest, each design team member has chosen an inspirational Pinterest image and created a project based on that.  And, the challenge today is to pick one of the team member’s Pinterest inspiration photo (or find one yourself on Pinterest) and create a project inspired from it.  I chose to create a project from Lisa Johnson’s inspiration photo:

I love the color combination: black, white, and red.  I have always loved this color combination.  But, it was that decorative strip on the left side that was the deciding factor in choosing this as the photo I wanted to work from.  This is what came from that inspiration photo:

Yes, similar layout as my previous card…but I just like it so much.  I love how the decorative strip running down the center turned out.  I used the small flourish stamp (not sure how to describe it) from Mat Stack 2 Collection to create that pattern.  I really, really like how it turned out…I may have to make more!  Thanks for stopping by!
