Pinterest 101

Are you on Pinterest yet?  Wondering what it's all about?  Check out the info below and follow me on Pinterest.

What is Pinterest?

Pinterest is a virtual bulletin board where you can “pin” whatever you find interesting. According to Pinterest, it is a place to “organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web.” You can think of Pinterest as an inspirational hub to share creative ideas, DIY projects, recipes, home d├ęcor tips, and even to plan weddings or other events.

How do you get a Pinterest account?

1. Request an invitation. You can either be invited by a friend who already has an account, or you can request an invitation from
2. Edit your profile. After you receive an invitation, you can choose your username, profile picture, email preferences, location, and write a little bit about yourself. You can even link your Pinterest profile to your Twitter and Facebook accounts.
3. Start pinning!

How do you use Pinterest?

If you’re a Pinterest beginner, there are a few terms you might want to know before diving in.
  • Pin: An image added to Pinterest, either from a website or by uploading it from your computer. You can comment on people’s pins, repin them to one of your boards, or “like” them.
  • Board: A set of pins for a particular topic of choice. You can create as many boards you want and assign them any topic, such as Inspirational Quotes, Card Making Ideas, Gift Ideas, etc. There is no limit on the amount of pins you can add to each board.
  • Repin: Adding an image you find on Pinterest to one of your own boards.
  • Bookmarklet: A “Pin It” button you can add to your browser so you can pin images directly from a website. Using the bookmarklet will link the image back to the original source. Go here to learn how to add the “Pin It” button to your browser.
Pin Etiquette instructs that pins are most useful when they link back to their source. If the original pinner includes the source-link in the pin, then each successive repin will automatically contain that source-link. This is how you give credit where credit is due. According to the Pinterest Terms of Service, “You acknowledge and agree that, to the maximum extent permitted by law, the entire risk arising out of your access to and use of the site, application, services and site content remains with you.” Remember you are responsible for what you pin, and it is highly encouraged to have rights from the original user to pin the image.

Life Is Tweet

A card made with the June Stamp of the Month and the Pemberly paper packet. I dyed the color ready seam binding ribbon with Honey ink to match everything. I got the idea from this blog:

American Celebration

A birthday card for my nephew who was born on the 4th of July. I used the American Celebration stamp set along with some glitz glitter gel in Stardust and Red
