Wow! Thanks for sharing this resource. I currently use Adobe Photo Shop for all of my inspiration boards- but I am loving this! I love how I can add pics while I am browsing the web. To cool!

Thanks for sharing. This is such a great place to put my ideas together. I don’t know a lot about photoshop so this will make things much easier.

Just curious what kind of “search words” you used to create your board. This site is fun and useful, but I am new to this kind of idea. :) I played around with it a bit, but this would take me far more than 15 minutes to create.

Love the inspiration board idea. I have used them to decorate my new room and I really like the idea of playing with colors, ideas before you actually do something. :)

Erin –
I think this board went so quick because it’s mainly comprised of images from other sites, rather than the polyvore archive itself. I used the Polyvore “clipper tool” to quickly add the images from the other sites to the Polyvore board. Here’s more info on that tool:
http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/help

The place setting, centerpiece, invitation, and pink favor boxes were all added in myself – and the rest of the items were found on Polyvore by searching specific phrases like: “pink wedding”, “pink cocktails”, “paper lanterns”, and “pink desserts”.

Hope that helps… have fun! :)

I love this planning tool too – it’s fabulous! I do have what might be a silly question, but how do you print an inspiration board once you create it? I have searched high & low but just can’t figure it out!
