Hello everyone! Polly Melanie here.
Do you use Pinterest? I am a Pinterest junkie! I think it’s an amazing source of inspiration for scrapbookers!
For those of you who are not familiar with Pinterest, it’s a popular social media site that lets users collect & pin photos to virtual pin boards! Each pin can be “re-pinned” by other users to their own boards. Also, each pin usually includes a link to wherever someone found the image on the internet.
The Lilypad has a very active Pinterest site with boards dedicated to all forms of scrapbooking, ways to improve your photography & all kinds of inspiration to get your creative juices flowing!
We have a huge vault of blog posts, forum posts & gallery uploads here at the Lilypad! When I was looking through the analytics for the Lilypad Pinterest account, I noticed there were a lot of things from the vault that were popular on Pinterest, things I had never even seen before! I found this fascinating, and I thought you would, too!
So here are some things to inspire you! I thought it would be really fun to share with you today the most popular blog posts, forum posts & gallery posts on Pinterest in June 2015 from the Lilypad!
Hall of Fame
In December of 2011, Polly Melissa wrote a blog post on ways to master pretty bokeh using Christmas lights. One of the examples included in the post was this lighted backdrop using Christmas lights. This is the most popular, most re-pinned & clicked-on Lilypad item of all time on Pinterest!
Click on the image below to go to the blog post that explains how to make this backdrop & the camera settings to use to get the best photo.
Here’s the adorable photo using this background:
Most Re-pinned in June
(Note: I was just looking at analytics for June for this blog post. The re-pinned numbers below represent the number of re-pins of all time!)
1. This fabulous page was the most re-pinned Lilypad item in the month of June! Unfortunately this links to a product no longer available in the store & I couldn’t find the layout in the gallery. Please let me know if this is your layout or you recognize this layout and know something about it!
2. This is such a sweet birthday invitation! The original pin links to Jacque Larsen’s Tooth Fairy element pack & I cannot find the creator of this invitation. If this is your invitation, please let me know!
3. Polly Dalis created this beautiful page with a Georgia O’Keefe quote that I think we can all relate to!
4. This sweet Disney-themed pocket page was created by miki_nenn in April 2014 using Project Mouse journal cards!
5. This gorgeous layout, “Because when you look around …,” was created in October 2013 by hallymichelle!
Most Clicked-on Pins in June
Here I wanted to share with you the top 5 most clicked-on pins, but 2 of them overlap with the most re-pinned items – the lighted backdrop & the fairy birthday invitation above!
1. In July of 2014, Polly Sarah wrote a tutorial about scrapping with lists for the We Are Storytellers promotion here at the Lilypad. She included her awesome page with 100 things that make her happy!
5. In March of 2013, Christine wrote an interesting blog post on how to use photo collages in your storytelling. She included this image from her own pocket scrapbooking album.
See? Isn’t this fascinating?! I hope you enjoyed this look at the most popular Lilypad items on Pinterest in the month of June!
