Using Pinterest to Inspire Scrapbooking by Design Team Member Andrea Ancich

Today Design Team Member, Andrea Ancich, shows us how she uses inspirational photos to inspire the colors of her next layout.

Don't you just love finding inspiration online? Pinterest is my favorite place to look for inspiration all in one place. By the way, did you know we have our own Pinterest page? Check out our page by clicking Pinterest above in the navigation bar.

While searching Pinterest, I found this gorgeous picture by Rachel La Grand from Nest Full of Eggs and printed it out. I stick most of my inspirational things in one of my SMASH books to keep them all together. It's quick, easy, and in one place

That is key for keeping organized. I am able to find inspiration quickly when I'm in a rut or need something to get my mojo flowing. Maybe you have a bulletin board that you pin things to or an area in your craft space. Either way, keep your inspiration close at hand so that when you are ready to craft, you know where to go for new ideas. 

I took this picture from Pinterest, by Nest Full of Eggs, and played with some paper....

I created this page.

I don't usually use pink, but loved this pattern paper from Crate Paper. I used the pink and teal from the photo above as an inspiration to create this layout.

I love looking in all different places to find inspiration. When you see something that catches your eye print it off, rip it out, take notes, or draw a sketch. It's helpful to carry a little notebook (or SMASH book) in your purse to do just that.
