I told you I was going to and now I have.

I have FINALLY used a pin as inspiration for a project.

So here’s today Pin of the Week:

I loved this quote, but I love the layout of it even more (which is hard to do with a quote from Audrey Hepburn).  The quotes on the top and bottom, the green banner in the middle.  The hardest part in using this pin as inspiration was finding a quote I wanted to use!

This is what I came up with:

Mine turned out a bit different, but that’s what ScrapLifting is all about, right?

If I could live at the beach, I would.  I absolutely LOVE palm trees and the ocean and the sand.  Ugh.  Love it.

The pictures are from my honeymoon to St. Maarten and are some of my absolute favorites from the trip.  I just turned them into instagrams to use on this layout.  The Sony machine has become my new best friend for printing instagrams.  The quality amazes me every time AND being able to print multiple photos on one 4×6 print is brilliant.

So some photos, three sheets of cardstock (it took me a few tries to get the banner right), Lily Bee Design alphabet stickers, Iguana Thickers, my black SMASH pen, my white Signo pen, a tape runner and some pop dots, and done.

How does Pinterest inspire you?  Have you created anything cool from a pin?

Happy Pinning!

Oh Instagram.

One of my absolute favorite apps is Instagram.

If I didn’t look so silly (or think I look so silly) running around with my iPad, I’d take instagrams of just about everything.

It’s so much fun to play with the effects and take adorable square photos…and it gets better.

They’re PERFECT for my SMASH book (and we all know how much I love to SMASH).

I told you I was starting a new SMASH book – and here it is!  My new Eco Green folio.

Like I said, instagram is my new favorite thing, so I decided to create a page devoted just to instagrams.  It’ll be a great way to use the extra photos I might have lying around and a way to see all the things I’ve done.

I used the Sony machine at the Maple Grove Archiver’s to print off my instagrams and used the matte finish, and let me tell you.  They turned out WAY better than I could’ve imagined.  Here are some more that I haven’t cut up yet:

Here they are!  A couple 5×7 prints and a few 4×6 prints.

For this print, I had the option to select 8 different photos.  A lot of bang for you buck with this option!  I also added the “instagrams” text using that option in the edit screen.

This print is a 5×7 (hard to tell in this image) and the instagrams end up being just a smidge bigger than 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″.

This is another 4×6 and it gave me the option to choose three photos.  It just repeats the images you select, which is nice if you want to share your instagrams with the people you might’ve been with (like my cousin and my grandma!).

This is another 5×7 print and this had the option for 4 different images.  (And the gooey thing in the top right corner is called Sticky Pull Parts and Culynn does not share his recipe.)

Last one.  A 4×6 print.  Again, perfect for sharing with someone!  These end up being just under 2″ x 2″.

BONUS – Photo prints are 50% off on Tuesdays…PERFECT for printing instagrams!  :)

I just emailed my instagrams to myself (much like you’d have to do if you wanted a photo from a friend), saved them on my memory card as a jpeg, and then printed them at Archiver’s.
