Using My Pins : From Pinterest to Scrapbook Page

Oh what a bad pinner I've been!  I've resolved many moons ago to actually use my pins and then blog about it.  I'm sure I have been inspired by my pins subconsciously and haven't actually connected the "pin" with the "project", but it's been a long long time since I've made the connection.

I was inspired recently to use a pin as inspiration for a scrapbook page. And it was a conscious effort, and I made note of it!  Hurray for me!

I was scrapping a photo of my sweet niece on my son's back.  Her dress was so colorful, carefree, and beautiful that I felt the background of the layout would need to accent the dress colors and motif in order for the layout to work.

Doily shapes came to mind and I used a doily table runner as inspiration for the layout.  I used patterned paper from my JBS Mercantile August Papercrafting Kit.  It's sold out now, but to avoid missing out on any more gorgeous kits like this one, become a subscriber!  I adore my Mercantile kits.

 You can read more about this layout, and how I cut the connected doilies on the SnapClickSupplyCo blog.

Hopefully this kick-started me into using more of my pins in my creative and everyday life!

Have a creative weekend!
