So What Is Pinterest?

While on etsy, I noticed that some of my items were found on I also started seeing it in some seller's profile. So naturally I started to wonder just what this site was. I went to the site and was immediately hooked!

Basically the site allows you to "pin up" things that you like. The idea is kind of like putting it on a message board. You can have different categories so that you can organize them.  For instance, right now I have: 'Items I love', 'Books I Love' and 'Newest Items For Sale'. More categories are to come :) You can view my site here

The cool thing is that you can add the pinning feature to your bookmarks so that when you are on a site that has something that you want to put on your board. You just "pin it" and they will capture the picture as well as the site address so that when someone clicks on the picture they will be taken to the original site. Cool!

Developing My Latest Scrapbooking Layout


I love creating scrapbooking layouts for my etsy shop but sometimes I get a stuck on what I want the layout to look like. When that happens I open up my Adobe Photoshop Elements and take look at what stickers I want to use.

For this page I knew that I wanted to use the three title stickers for sure. Because I wanted to use them all on one page I thought that it would probably be best to use three 4x6 photos. Once I laid all of this out on my computer screen, I decided that I needed something else so I added a title element above my vertical 4x6 photo. 

Here is what I came up with:

You can use the same process using pre-cut out shapes made of card stock and just move them around until you get the layout you want. To see more free sketches you can go to my scrapbooking website here.
