Pin-spiration

I love Pinterest. When I first started using Pinterest, I was on it ALL. THE. TIME. No, seriously I was. Just ask my friends who followed me on Pinterest. I had to quit cold turkey several years ago when I realized I had over 20,000 pins. No, that is NOT a typo. I spent crazy amounts of time spent pinning. Obviously.

The past several months I have been easing back into Pinterest because I love the purpose that it serves. Pinterest is an amazing source of inspiration. I love that I can find something that will spark an idea. I love to use it when I’m stuck on a project and can’t figure out what to do next. I love it for all of the helpful information and tips you find there.

A couple weeks ago, I pinned this card by Bekka from “Feeling Crafty with Bekka”. I actually repinned this card from Pinterest and not from Bekka’s website. I came across it in my feed and I really liked the simplicity and the clean look. I can tell this card has been super popular on Pinterest as it keeps popping back up in my Pinterest feed. A lot of you love this card as well. Would you believe this card has been repinned more than 25,000 times?!?! Amazing job, Bekka!

This is my take on Bekka’s card. I don’t usually copy a card this closely, but I wanted to show you that you can take a design and change it to be what you need. This is why we Pin our projects to Pinterest, to hopefully inspire you. I used her layout but changed it to be what I needed, which was a birthday card. Just remember if you do copy someone else’s card to give credit to the artist that inspired you.
