Hi all, Pam sharing another month of Pinspiration projects. Before I start I wanted to let you guys know about a pinterest board called "Look Who Is Using Chickaniddy" on our pinterest board. We love pinning your projects to our board! Have you been using Chickaniddy products on your projects? Please post it to our facebook page along with a link to your blog so we have a chance to pin it! You can also post a link to your page on our comment section below.
On to three amazing pinterest inspired pages. Like last month we asked each designer to go to the pinterest board to pick out their inspiration piece. You can play along too by going to our April mood board here.
First up is Evelyn sharing her pinspiration project.
"Hey everyone its me again, Evelyn Pratiwi Yusuf. I’m so excited to create any project according to Chickniddy April 2014 Pinterest Mood Board. This is how I interprate the picture and the colors combo.
I created my own background according to the last pic in the pinterest picture which I dividing two pattern papers pink and the grey one and paste it together. After that I choose yellow pattern papers and cut it triangle and paste it just right in the middle to pop up my photo. Because it’s a Spring layout so you will find flowers and leaves. I do the fussy cut of the flowers plus create some leaves and stack it together we call it layering and pop it up to make dimension in this layout. As a final touch I use some enamel hearts.

Now it's time to see what Diane created.
"Hello everyone, Diane here! I don't know about you, but I love Pinterest. I pin something every single day. Chickaniddy Crafts has a beautiful mood board each month and I picked one image from their board to inspire my layout today.
I selected this adorable rabbit. I loved the mix of black/white prints, along with the pop of the gold and pink. I also really loved the scalloped design.
I incorporated the colors and scallop design from the inspiration piece into my layout. I backed my photo with a piece of gold foil that I embossed with an embossing folder. I like how it looks like a burst of sun shine and ties in with the "shine" theme of my layout.
I hand wrote my title using a paint brush and black mist. For the finishing touches I added some ink splatters and scattered some sequin around the title.
To create a scallop, similar to the one in the inspiration piece, I cut 1 inch circles with my circle punch in a variety of colors and patterns. I laid some out in a row beginning with the bottom row first. I added two more rows, staggering each one for more visual interest. For a clean edge, I added a strip of glitter ribbon tape across the top row of circles.
Supplies: Paper: Tea Party (TG140S03), Keepsakes (TG140S04), Itty Bitty Ballerina (TG140S08), Piggy Tails (TG140S12); Gold Foil Paper (CN14SP001); Alpha Stickers (TG14EB01);
Do you use Pinterst to inspire you in scrapbooking? I would love to see how you use it!"
Last up is Amy and her project! She used the same pinspiration piece as Diane but got a totally different look!!
Working with the Twirly Girly Collection, I had so much fun putting this card together.
I focused on the pink color in the inspiration and translated it to the raspberry color in Twirly Girly. I couldn't wait to use the silhouette image as my focal point.
Supplies: Paper (TG14CP01; TG14OS017) Silver Foil Paper (CM14SP002)
I die cut a doily shape out of the Silver Foil paper and layered it with vellum leaves and the cameo silhouette. I dipped the wooden clothespin into a Fuschia stamp pad. I have the coordinating reinker so I squeezed a bit out onto an acrylic block, added a smidge of water and used it to watercolor onto my card base.
TIP: Using coordinating ink colors ties the design together.
I knew I wanted to keep my design fairly clean and crisp but still bring in neutral colors.
I featured several of the gray patterns in the Twirly Girly collection. I circle punched and lined them up on my card base then added the watercolor panel on top.
I love that this collection has the best of both worlds...plenty of girly patterns along with plenty of patterns that would be suitable for masculine layouts, cards and other projects.
If you have the Twirly Girly collection, play along with us and leave us a comment with a link to your project. We'd love to see how you're inspired!"
Hope you get a chance to play along with us!
