If you have ever gone to your computer for a quick minute and two, three even four hours later found yourself still sitting there, you probably visited Pinterest and became lost in the visual magic. If this has not happened to you, I can only imagine that you have incredible self restraint or have not browsed Pinterest yet. It is so much fun to get lost in the magic!
By now, we know that you will have already looked through the Summer 2013 issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine. You probably have earmarked a few projects that you love and want to remember to revisit.
Why not share your favourite project with your friends and followers on Pinterest for a chance to win a mystery box full of scrapbook products!
Sound like fun? Of course it does!!!
So you ask ... How do I enter for a chance to win?
I could look at home décor boards on Pinterest ALL day! I was so inspired by some of the DIY projects that I created a neighborhood craft night so my friends and I could create fun, personalized home décor pieces while enjoying a glass of wine and some girl time!
I’ve seen several darling “hearts in a frame” décor items on Pinterest recently:
- an inexpensive photo frame (with a double mat) - a heart punch - a piece of white cardstock cut to the size of the photo frame (4x6, 8x10, etc) - scraps of patterned paper (one of the girls brought a map! so cute!) - glitter - a Xyron 1.5” create-a-sticker for the hearts - a Xyron 9” creative station to cover the mats
and voila! Handmade heart wall hangings!
You can see some of our past neighborhood craft nights here and here! I hope you will join me for even more Pinterest inspired projects in my Create the Perfect DIY Embellishments class that I’m teaching at several Crop & Create events this year. I’d love to see you!

Surprise! We've started the unveiling of our newest project! Learn all about Crop & Create: Delivered HERE including some sneak peeks too!
Full reveal is on Friday at 9:00 p.m. EST so mark your calendars...it won't last long!
Happy Monday to the SCT gang! Today I wanted to give you a little sneak peek of one of the projects we’ll be creating in the Pinterest inspired class called "Create the Perfect DIY Embellishments" that I’ll be teaching at several Crop & Create events this year!
Gorgeous ribbon cards of every theme and color can be found on Pinterest, but they look like they would take forever and be complicated (and messy) to create. Not so!
You don’t need a lot of fancy tools or expensive supplies to create a ribbon card - in my class we’ll create one using just one sheet of cardstock, a Xyron 5” creative station, and some scraps of ribbon. You know how much I love to show people how to use items from their stash! I had so much fun with this idea that I made my Christmas cards, then my New Year’s cards, then my Valentine’s Day cards all using this technique. You will become addicted too!
This is just one of the many techniques and fun projects we’ll create in class – I hope you’ll join me in Winnipeg, Burnaby and Ottawa for this and a whole bunch of other Pinterest inspired projects. Can’t wait to see you!
