I find you TOTALLY Pinspiring!

Hi there, crafty friends with issues!
This is Leah, joining you on one of my holidays - HAPPY CANADA DAY to all of our Canadian friends who are joining us today!  We hope you're enjoying time with family, friends, FOOD and fun!  But mostly food!  ;)

Have you played along yet with our June PINspire Me in our Facebook group?  The mood board for June is, quite possibly, the happiest thing you ever did see!  Rainbows and summer and candy and sprinklers and sunshine and sand and smiley faces!  Check out this beauty:


And if the board itself is not enough to get your creative juices flowing, you'll want to CLICK HERE to see the original post with fab projects from our Creative Team, AND....  I've got a few projects to share from our crafty friends who rocked this!

Oh, Sandy Ross, you had me at TWO-PAGER!  This awesome spread features those little dudes perfectly, captured doing the boy stuff they do, including the shenanigans, the buildin' and the cheesin'!  It's easy to see how you were Pinspired with those gorgeous, happy colors!

Janice Daquila-Pardo, are you kidding me?  Not only can we all learn a little something from Ferris Bueller (LOVE the quote!), but the orientation of your page, the bright, poppin' colors, and those lines?  Yeah, that's inspiring!

The happy factor is comin' atcha at FULL FORCE with this super cute card from Heather Wilson Shank!  Smiling critters, that gorgeous yellow, clean lines and a BIG sentiment screaming a happy hello!  SO FUN!

Um, you can see why THIS one definitely caught my eye!  Sandi Pressley took the solitary black and white image and ran with it, adding a tiny pop of teal to knock this page out of the park!  I love how our Pinspire Me Mondays appeal to so many different people in so many ways.  Love your clean and simple interpretation, Sandi!

Heather Rulien Conklin - your card is full of gorgeous techniques that we Paper Issues folks LOVE!  The combination of colored inks and the floral/doily stencil?  PERFECTION!  And the bold, black sentiment on vellum?  Well, we love vellum here.  And I love your card!

Keep sharing your Pinspired projects with us, folks!  The new mood board will go live on July 13th, so there's still plenty of time to be Pinspired and to Pinspire your fellow crafty friends!  Join us for this one HERE, and because I know you're looking for more excuses to get your craft on, CLICK HERE for our current Link Party, sponsored by October Afternoon!  There's a whopper of a prize to be won!


  1. This mood board rocks and these PINspired projects are awesome! Thank you so much for featuring my layout among these beauties. :-)

  2. Wow...thank you for featuring my page!! There are so many awesome projects that have been inspired by this mood board.

  3. Thanks for the feature Ladies...I am honoured! A very special treat for me on Canada Day! Congrats to all the others who are featured!

  4. Thank you for featuring my card! I had SOO much fun playing with the inspiration board!

  5. seriously, how can one pin board give such different inspiration. I adore them all but Sandi was inspired in a completely different direction. I did not even see the black and white until i saw her layout and looked back. Great, great idea!
