In the past six years since I started working at Paper Crafts magazine in 2008, I’ve become a bit of a social media nut.
It all started with Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest, but then came Instagram. Oh my goodness, my love of pictures and pretty things was delighted! The more I used it, the more I loved it.
Like Facebook, you can get updates on friends’ lives (without the political rants, games, and viral videos). And like Twitter, you can follow friends and family as well as celebrities. Stacy London actually commented on one of my posts the other day. OMG!
Recently, I’ve been adding photos of some of my paper crafted creations. Here’s an example below:
You can see that I added hashtags (#) and mentions (@) that lead my followers to manufacturers and cardmaking words. It’s like little bread crumbs taking you all over Instagram to find stuff you are interested in.
I followed some bread crumbs and discovered a card maker I’d never heard of who makes really great cards. Marina Johan lives a world away from me in Singapore, but through Instagram, I can see her lovely creations from the convenience of the grocery store check out line! Here are a few of Marina’s creations:
