From now until Halloween, we are holding an awesome contest, Pin It to Win It! and there will be TONS of winners! Simply head to our store, Pin the products on your wish list to your Pinterest account and then wait. On Halloween, we’ll be looking through all the pins and be awarding some TREATS (RAKS) to random pins! Be sure to post a link to your board, so we know you want to win, in the forum! Want to see some of the amazing products others have been pinning? Check them all out here.

Alright, but what if you don’t know how to use Pinterest? You need an account – and it’s a good idea to have a board for your favorite Studio products. So, follow along and I’ll teach you the basics.

How to Create a New Board on Pinterest

Step 1: Log in to your Pinterest account, and click on the Add+ button at the top right of the screen

Step 2: Select Create a Board

Step 3: Enter the information about your board. Choose a name (Digital Scrapbooking, a designer name, theStudio Products, Digital Scrapbook Layouts – whatever you want). Select a category, DIY/Crafts is a good fit – then click the red Create Board button.


 That’s it! Now you just need to add pins to your board. Wanna know how to do that with products from theStudio? Here you go:

How to Pin a product from theStudio Store to your Pinterest Board

Step 1: Find the product in the store, you will need to be on the product page. At the top, above the product name is a Pin It Button. Click on that.


Step 2:  A screen will come up, over the product with all of the images on that page. You will want to click on the preview for the product you are pinning.

Step 3: A new window, small, will pop up. If you are not logged in to Pinterest, it will ask you to log in. If you are, it will default to the last board you pinned something to. Make sure you pick the board you want to pin to (I pin all of my own products to a board called “Nibbles Skribbles” as you will see in the images).


Step 4: Edit the description. It will default to the product name – you will want to add some of the following information. Note: The more detailed you are, the easier it is for others to find it when they are looking for awesome things on Pinterest. Here are some tips:

Designer name, price (including a $ – and it shows up right across the image), Digital Scrapbooking Studio, theStudio. You can put a hashtag (#) in front of any key search terms or repeat things like the designer name with a # in front.

Then click Pin It, and you are done. Repeat for additional products. The pin itself will automatically link to the page it came from in the store!

Alright, now go! Get Pinning!

How many of you have 20/20 vision? I don’t.  I did. Once-upon-a-time, but it’s been a while. I really notice the change in my vision when I am browsing through the gallery.  Often times posters will include their journal comments in the layout description, and I love that.  I enjoy reading the story behind the […]
