Gossamer Blue

Pinspired with Gossamer Blue


Hi Everyone!  Emily here!  Happy Friday, and welcome to the another edition of “Pinspired with Gossamer Blue Challenge.”  The second Friday of every month, I will share a layout or two made with the current kit that was inspired by something I discovered on Pinterest.  Are you ready for the best part?  At the end of each post, I will challenge YOU to create a Pinspired project for the chance to win a $10 gift certificate to the Gossamer Blue store!

This inspiration for this month’s layout is quite different than the pins I’ve used in the past. Usually I find inspiration for layouts in the form of colors, art, and design.  However, I’ve been on a “home” pinning spree lately as I dream about possibly owning a different home in the future!  This month, I thought I would try to create a layout based on a pin from my Home board!

Most of the rooms I have pinned on my home board are fun and colorful…and nearly every one seems to have a hint of aqua (my current favorite color) in it somewhere!  I chose this beautiful room as my inspiration piece:

There is so much that jumps out at me in this room. The aqua (of course!), the pops of orange (my second current favorite color), the beautiful floral quilt, and the flying butterflies on the throw pillow.  I tried to incorporate all of these ideas somehow in my layout.

As many of you know, my son was born a week ago today! I couldn’t wait to make a layout about our new family of five.  Do you see all my “elements”?  The aqua and orange are pretty apparent!  The beautiful Carta Bella floral paper is the quilt, and the collection of buttons and enamel dots represent the butterflies flying off the page.



It was fun to have such abstract inspiration this month…and now it’s your turn!  Are you ready to be challenged? This month I again have two Pinspired challenge options for you!

  1. Using a home décor pin as your inspiration. Please share your pin with your project!


  1. Use the orange an aqua color scheme I used on my layout!

Post a link to your creation in the comments of this post by Friday, September 20th for the chance to win a $10 gift card to the store.  One winner will be chosen at random. Happy creating!
