Happy Saturday everyone! I often spend at least some part of my Saturdays on Pinterest. I absolutely LOVE it! I get so many great ideas for everything from food to decorating to gardening to - of course - scrapbooking! There are so many wonderfuly talented scrapbooking artists whose work has been pinned there for all to see. I find it so inspiring. I love looking at their work and reading their blogs, seeing what supplies and techniques they have used. I decided that every Saturday I will celebrate some of my Pinspirations here and share them with you. So lets get started...
This is a gorgeous layout made with the BoBunny Clockwork Timepiece paper. The inking and whitewashed paint effect on the background paper is really beautiful. papergirlcrafts.blogspot.com
I absolutely LOVE this card - the layering, the inking, the stamping - this has my name written all over it - don't you see it there - Conisu, Conisu, Conisu! LOL - I have a butterfly similar to this one on one of my Cricut Cartidges so I plan to scraplift this idea very, very soon! https://piquenique39.tumblr.com/
MORE distressing with some really heavy, dark inking, not to mention the Tim Holtz stamps and his super cool Regal Findings. I also love that this is matted on a vintage piece of music. I bought an old hymnal at a garage sale for just his kind of thing. If you don't have old sheet music lying around there are many scrapbook papers with music printed on them. This tag is gorgeous! pinkleart.blogspot.com
Love the lacing and the sewing on this layout! Scraplifting worthy ideas include the turned back edge with metal fasteners revealing the title underneath. Check out the spatters of ink droppings on the page - makes it look like something found in the attic in an old trunk. moments-of-tranquility.com
AGAIN with the BoBunny Timepiece collection, which she then embellished with clock hands and bling. There is so much to love on this layout - the layering, distressing and inking - natch. But look at the rolled pieces of paper behind and to the side of the photo. Beautiful and so simple anyone can do it with paper scraps. Did you see the Tim Holtz film tape - I have this but have not found a way to use it yet. It looks great place on top of the rolled papers and then adheared to the paper behind.bobunny.blogspot.com
All I can say is WOW! This is simply (or not so simply) beautiful! There is so much to see here that you have to look at it a number of times to catch it all. Yet it doesn't overwhelm the picture. It looks like an illustration in a magazine. This beautiful paper is from Graphic 45. One of my all time fave companys. Their lines have such a vintage feel. She has also used Prima flowers and a inked doily on 2 sides of the layout. g45papers.typepad.com
Ok I could go on for another hour pinning and talking about the beautiful layouts, tags, and cards that areon Pinterest today but I will save some for next Saturday edition of Pinspirations! Go get Pinspired!
