Using Inspiration

Below is an example of how Marie-Pierre has used Pinterest to inspire her own page. Marie says, “When I use Pinterest for inspiration I’m most often looking for something that will spark an idea or an emotion. I will look for something soft or something colorful, depending on the page I want to make. Sometimes I will look for a little object that I find cute and try to see how I can translate that onto paper. “

“When I saw these tags pinned on Cindy McAllister’s Card board and I thought the little stitched/stamped hearts would make perfect embellishments on a page. I liked them in a group so knew I would place them in a grid. It’s only weeks later, as I was working on this page about my little one, because of the calendar background that I had chosen, that I thought of the hearts again. I worked with what I had on hand to replicate them.”
