Using inspiration

Here is an example of how Paula has used the inspiration that she collects on Pinterest in her own scrapbooking.  Paula’s page NYC was inspired by the following pin from Kelli Crowe’s pinboard listed above. 

Paula says about the page, ” I’ve always been a collector of memorabilia. Even before I started scrapbooking, I saved my tickets stubs and bits and pieces from places I visited.”

“I occasionally try to incorporate one or two into my layouts but when I saw this layout by Amanda Jones on Pinterest, I was inspired to use ALL the ephemera I collected from our trip to NYC. It’s a fun way to remember everything we did. In fact, I liked her page so much I pinned it twice!”

Her work has been published in Simple Scrapbooks, Scrapbooks Etc., Creaking Keepsakes, and many other idea books and magazines. She was named a member of the Creating Keepsakes Hall of Fame in 2007.
