A Bit of Pinspiration


Last week was Pinterest inspiration week on the Scraptastic Blog, with Design Team members rummaging through their Pin boards, choosing inspiring pieces, and creating projects based on those pins. I chose TWO pinned projects to inspire a layout with the Scraptastic Everything I Am kit.

My first bit of "pinspiration" came from the gorgeous page below. Inspired by the white on white look of the layered papers along with the soft pastel color palette, I aimed to combine the same on my page.


Additional Pinspiration was drawn from the large welded title of the beautiful layout below. It made me want to drag out my die cutting machine and play with lettering!



Here are the results of applying a little inspiration from each of the above pieces to my own page:



The color scheme of my layout was inspired by the first pin. Popping up some of the white and pastel elements helps to distinguish them from the background.


The second Pinterest pin inspired me to form my own title, by arranging, overlapping and welding letters before cutting with my diecutting machine. The word "beautiful" was cut from both white and pink papers then layered on the page, with the top (white) layer pop-dotted over the pink. It's a great effect!


Check out the Scraptastic Blog for more Pinterest inspiration pieces. Do you have a pin board? What is inspiring YOU lately?

I love how you were able to stick with the pale and pretty color scheme, I on the other hand try to do it but somehow end up putting in just a bit more color. I am going to try this again, thanks for the inspiration!

Gorgeous! I love the subtle colour scheme - especially the white doily on a white background, with the leaves on top. So pretty! x
