We have many plans for 2012 and are so excited to introduce new teachers, meet more students, invite new members to join us, and of course share all things creative and inspiring with you.

Learn how BPC member Laura Pinto-Nguyen uses Pinterest for inspiration and creation!

Pinterest has taken over a lot of my resources as a place for creative inspiration and a place for knowledge. I mean, how did I ever manage to live without knowing the many uses of toothpaste?, knowing how to lift pills off sweaters or learning to make my own sugar scrubs? Pinterest has taken me out of a cave and given me a good place to start....to start doing my own scrubs, cleaners and... a fall wreath? Yes, a wreath...seriously have you even been able to see the amount of DIY items on Pinterest and the amazing layouts and cards and paper/fabric creations?!

Fist of all, what is Pinterest? Pinterest is a virtual pin board. Instead of cutting out pictures and photos out of book and magazines, Pinterest provides you with a virtual board to store all your favorite things. Here are my pinboards:

The really cool thing about creating your very own virtual boards on Pinterest is that you can share your boards with your favorite peeps and so there is tremendous amount of sharing.

I had been wanting to make my very own fall wreath since last year and I was able to find so many ideas on Pinterest that I had no trouble coming up with how to make my very own rustic wreath even using some of my most beloved Stampin'Up goodies.

Here is some eye candy an inspirational pics I used to help me make my own fall wreath:

fabric leaves

burlap & fabric rosettes

burlap wrapped wreath & cute banner

burlap/fabric roses & brown bow

felt pinecone tutorial - love!!

Give thanks" phrase on wreath

So put these all together for my own version of a rustic fall wreath while incorporating stamping:


You may visit my blog for a complete list of supplies used for this wreath HERE. Once you are there, feel free to browse around for other paper crafting and stamping projects.

In the meantime, have fun pinning!!!

Can you stand it? It was a hit, check it out below.
