We have a special treat for you! More Pinterest inspired projects courtesy of the craft girls. You can see this month's first posts here. Again here is the link to the August mood board.
Wendy Sue is the first share her layout created using pinspiration!
"I was inspired by two of the photos on our inspiration board this month:
I decided to put them together to create this layout:
I really loved the gray and white stripes, which I used for the background of my layout.
And of course, the orange polka-dots were my favorite. I used the "days of the week" stickers to mimic those cute orange polka-dots!
Throw in a few little extras, and the result is Chickaniddy Craft Pinspired! :)"

This is what Meredith created for today!
"Hey there! I'm pretty excited about my project today... One of my favourite things of all is to stamp background patterns and make my own designs with just stamps and ink. Did you know that Chickaniddy has some pretty awesome stamp sets with their Collections? And they're perfect for creating your own patterned paper!
I decided to use the colours from the bouquet in the photo and create a watercolour feel to my design. So I stamped flowers from both of the stamp sets. Then I watered some of my inks down and ran over the flowers with my paint brush. To step my design up a notch, I splattered some shimmer spray all over the whole thing."
Amanda is up next with her project!
"Inspired by the soft gray stripes and coral dots on this scarf from the August mood board, I created a simple gift wrap using patterned paper from the Twirly Girly collection.
I took a literal approach when creating my gift wrap. I paired this fun gray striped pattern with various sized coral dots. I punched and die cut dots ranging from 1/2" to 1" and stitched them together with my sewing machine. I wrapped the garland around the package a few times to create the polka dot accent.
I used the hello stamp from the Date Night collection and created a layered label. This sentiment could be easily swapped out depending on your gift giving occasion.
Supplies: Itty Bitty Ballerina (TG14OS08); A Girl's Generation (TH14OS09); Date Night clear stamps (DN14ST01)
Lastly, we have Shellye to share what she created!
"Hello! Shellye here with my August Pinspiration; I chose this cool mixed media collage:
My interpretation came from the blocks of various journaling/prints on the background. I created my own mix of patterns on this altered journal notebook cover:
First, I covered the plain front of the book with a piece of paper. Next, I cut strips of two patterned papers into different widths: 1.5", 2" and 3". I cut a smaller piece of cardstock and then began laying the paper strips haphazardly onto it. Once I had the pieces in place, I attached them to the cardstock with a dab of glue in the center.
I machine stitched the pieces into place and the embellished the top with a journal card and a couple of hand-cut flowers! "
