Posting Board Gallery

I've been scouring the net finding OODLES of inspiration.  The culprit, Pinterest

Pinterest allows you to pin all those amazing ideas and images you find online onto virtual inspiration board.  The site allows you to categorize the images.  For instance, if you are looking to design a room in your home with a Sea theme, then you refer to your Sea board where you can shift through the images you've collected.  Don't feel that you need to scour the Internet looking for images.  The site allows you to "repin" images from other boards to your own.

Currently I have 38 boards that range from paper crafting ideas, to beautiful faces, to decaying buildings.  Anything that interest you can be pinned.

Here's a few of my board titles along with images I've posted in them.  I sure hope you all give it a try.  It truely is a wonderful site. 








Well, that should get you started.  Have fun filling your boards.

Royal Crown, Lace Brooch

I created this little embellishment while finishing up some samples for a publication. A sliver crown stuffed with sweet ivory lace and a red velvet ribbon.

The original peice was designed to embellish a card but I thought it would make such a sweet embellishment for those winter coats. Simply tuck a pen on the back an walla!

The crown and rhinestone at the top are both from Stampin' Up!

PCS Treasure Chest mini blog hop

It's time for a new blog hop for the Paper Crafters Sampler. This month we're highlighting a treasure chest template, which is a perfect fit for our July 2011 issue "Shore Thing".

If you've already been viewing our mini hop you've probably just come from Heidi Baks blog. If not, then you can start here and just keep selecting the button at the bottom of the post to come full circle.

I've changed my chest up a bit but stuffing it with some more modern goodies.

Alter up the pattern and stamps a bit and you could have beautiful idea for presenting your bridesmaids with a small gift, or tuck a gift card inside for offering a gift card to the bride and groom.

Now it's time to move on to Kelly Campbell and see the adorable presentation she put together for you.  Simply select the button below and you're off.

Thanks for checking out my Treasure Chest project.
