Pinterest...a new way to bookmark visually
 
Take a look at my boards and see how this can be so helpful for you in your cardmaking, scrapbooking, crafting and just about everything else.

NO, it won't take you away from SCS...it will enhance your creativity inspiration to do some really cool things here.

Pinterest is in beta, so you have to be invited right now. Just PM your e-mail and I will invite the first 10 or so, then others will need to take over and help process the invites. Have fun!! (oh and I don't get any credit for bringing you "in"....I just thought you guys would enjoy something so visually innovative)

What is Pinterest?

Think of Pinterest as a virtual pinboard a place where you can create collections of things you love and "follow" collections created by people with great taste.

People use Pinterest to collect and share all sorts of things -- wedding inspiration, favorite T-shirts, DJ equipment. You name it, people are pinning it.

We know you have great taste in something. Our mission is to make Pinterest the best place for you to share your taste with the world.

I'm addicted to it too :) I know Beate has already made a few projects using it as an inspiration challenge site.

I've pinned several people's beautiful cards from Splitcoast there. Very fun.

Jennasmomma 03-30-2011 10:58 AM

I just joined pinterest yesterday. I am now following the OP :)

How do I find you guys?

UnderstandBlue 03-30-2011 11:14 AM

You can search at the top for people by name..

Here's mine: Lydia Fiedler (understandblue) on Pinterest

Then when you follow someone they make it easy for them to follow you back - they get a link to your boards via email.

Jennasmomma 03-30-2011 11:18 AM

I don't have much on mine yet. But here is my link:

I've been pinning for about six weeks and have found it incredibly valuable for keeping track of my inspiration sources. I've been saving things with Tumblr for a couple years, but I totally dig the ability to create separate boards for different themes, categories, and projects in Pinterest. I now Pin far more than I share something on Tumblr.

If you're visually inspired or need a little help keeping track of the things that inspire you on the Web, check it out. Just try not to get sucked in!

kwelch10377 03-30-2011 12:19 PM

Thanks for the invite, I am trying to figure it out. I am having issues with adding the link to my bookmark so I can pin stuff.

I'll have to play with it when I get home.

I found it easier to add the Bookmark Toolbar then the "Pin It" to the tool bar. Until you get the hang of it though....just try pinning others pins and you won't need the "pin it" in your book marks for that.

thebiscuitscraps 03-30-2011 06:59 PM

I sent invites to all who requested via PM. If you have not received the invite by tomorrow, let me know.

kwelch10377 03-31-2011 07:16 AM

Ok I have figured it out and have starting pinning stuff if anyone wants to follow me
