No question is stupid!

We have an extensive wiki with information on inspiration boards!

Check out the post by Mrs. Lemon on how to make them the easy way!

I don’t own any cool computer programs, just the basics, so I actually did mine in Microsoft Paint. I literally just copied and pasted photos from the internet next to one another in Paint so that they formed a rectangle.

I went on the internet, found the pictures I liked, and then saved them to My Pictures. In Paint, I then hit "Edit" then "Paste from" and then selected the pictures I saved. Most of them I made much smaller so I could fit a good # of pics on the board.

I made one for my own wedding, and one for a friends. Both are attached:

I just had a lot of fun making my first board at Polyvore.com, and I also love the mosaic maker through Flickr & Big Huge Labs. They’re lots of fun, and I hope you’ll share your boards when you make them! 🙂

That’s so cool, Kitty! How do you go about getting a board published on SMP?

I actually just e-mailed mine in, and they publish reader boards every so often – the lady who runs the site was so nice and even sent me e-mails saying she liked my boards 🙂

I copy and paste them into MS Powerpoint.  That way I have a different slide for each part of the wedding (Flowers, dresses, rings, venues, cakes, etc) and I can print them all on one piece of paper and put them in my notebook.

I also used powerpoint for my boards… it’s easy to move around the pictures so that each is kind of layered over another.  Just double click each pic you paste on the slide and do either "send to back" or "send to front".  You can get a really nice board with power point.

Definitely try out http://www.polyvore.com. It lets you pull ideas from other boards, as well as pull pictures from your favorite sites.

Here’s the one that I did for my wedding….

I love polyvore.com, but since you can’t clip images from flickr I’m off to check that out.  I think the "clip to Polyvore" in my toolbar is possibly the most handy webtool I have ever introduced to my browser. 🙂
