You have (P)inspired me!

Good morning, friends with issues!  Leah l'Orange joining you today to bring you some gorgeous and inspiring projects that were shared in our Facebook group, and inspired by the July Pinspire Me Monday mood board!  Here's the mood board in question:


Lots of bright, bold, summery colors to hopefully get that mojo pumpin'!  CLICK HERE to see the original post where the Paper Issues Creative Team rocked their projects, and keep scrolling to see how our friends have been Pinspired!

Laura shared this page that really plays on the color palette, especially the blue and yellow combo.  I love the underwater action shots, and those two-toned woodgrain alphas are fabulous!  What great use of color for this page - that blue just DEMANDS to be seen and looks great center stage!

Creative Team member Danielle went for soft and sweet, really bringing the warm, summery vibe from the flamingo image, adding those gorgeous pops of green and yellow - the yellow was certainly a popular choice for this mood board!  Don't these veggies look amazing and fresh?  YUM!

Julie's page could almost be a mood board in and of itself, couldn't it?  The grid layout is fantastic, the colors are all captured beautifully, and I love the way she used the frames to ground everything!  The palette looks fantastic against the white background, and those little gold paint splats are subtle but SO effective for interest!

Heather's page was inspired by the mosaic sun; it's bright and bold with a sunny background paper and a second sun in orange, drawing more focus to the photos and large title.  Yellow and orange always make for a happy combination, and those cheeks are so pinchable!

Stacie was inspired by the wood from that window image again, adding in some of the soft pink accents reminiscent of that flamingo image.  The pink against the light woodgrain makes for a soft and lovely background, allowing darker pinks to POP in the photos and accenting the flowers.  What a great feminine page!

So there you have it!  Thanks to our friends for sharing these gorgeous pages, and you can still jump on this bandwagon before the August Pinspire Me goes live!  CLICK HERE to visit the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} group on Facebook and join us!
