Pinspired Challenges was created by a group of girls that LOVE Pinterest and crafting…. We came up with the idea of the challenge in the latter part of 2012 and the challenges launched in January of 2013. Our DT, or as we like to call them, “Pin Heads” have scoured Pinterest to bring you some amazing inspirational pins. We will post a brand new challenge on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month. You will have until Thursday of the following week to link your entry onto the challenge post. That’s 9 whole days to play along!!!! Inspirational photos are for you to interpret anyway you want. You can take from the colors, the style or the technique – whatever floats your boat! You can also feel free to make any kind of craft you want as well, whether its a card, layout or altered item.

From May 3 – 5, we are showcasing Crafter’s Companion stamps from Sheena’s A Little Bit Floral collection. You have TWO chances to win! You can hop around and comment on all of the blogs for one chance to win a gift certificate from Crafter’s Companion (May 3 – 5, 2013).

For a second chance to win, you can play along!


Use the image above as inspiration to create a project and post it using InLinkz on the Pinspired Blog. You have until May 9, 2013 to participate for a chance to win a gift certificate from Crafter’s Companion. If you create and comment on the Blog Hop, that is two chances to win!

Here is what I have created for the hop using this GORGEOUS Iris stamp from Sheena’s collection!


I water colored the Iris with Distress Markers… I didn’t have any matching pearls so I created my own with Liquid Pearls.


Next up on the hop is the sweet and bubbly Mary Dawn. Remember to comment as you hop and please, play along with us. You can submit your project on the Pinspired home page!
