Let your inspiration inspire us too: Pin Your Favorite Place Pinterest Contest!

We had so much fun creating our two new Pinterest inspired designs that we’re having another Pinterest contest and giving you the chance to inspire a new design for our 2013 collection! Plus, you’ll have the chance to win 100 letterpress party invitations that you could use for save the dates, a birthday party, baby announcements, or even a backyard BBQ!

Here’s how it’s going to work: we’re looking for inspiration from a place that you love. It could be anywhere: your favorite vacation spot, where you got engaged (or married!), a pretty spot in the woods, or even your own backyard. Create a board on Pinterest and name it My Favorite Place, then upload an inspiring photo of your special place to the board to get started. In the caption, tell us why it holds an important place in your heart. Don’t spare any details – we want to hear your stories!

Follow (and pin!) these instructions for Bella Figura's Pin Your Favorite Place Pinterest Contest!

Then, fill your board with at least 20 other pins that match the look and feel of your initial pin. What we’re looking for: a cohesive board overflowing with beauty! Pin images that mimic the feeling and match the style of your original photo. Feel free to continue telling your story in the captions of the other pins! Check out our sample board for ideas to get you started.

In addition to the 20 pins, you must pin the image below to your board, as well as your favorite Bella Figura envelope liner. To pin your favorite liner pattern, just use the handy tool on our website to customize an envelope liner with a pattern and colors that match your style, and in the caption, include the name of the pattern (like this!).

 Follow (and pin!) these instructions for Bella Figura's Pin Your Favorite Place Pinterest Contest!

Our lead designer Jessica Tierney will be judging the contest and one of our talented designers will be creating an invitation suite based on the winning board. Judging will begin on July 23, and the winner will be announced on July 27. The new Pinterest-inspired design will be released with our new collection in January 2013.

Entry deadline: The contest runs from July 16, 2012 through 12pm EST on July 23, 2012. To enter, follow the instructions above and submit the URL of your Pinterest board to the comments section below.

The grand prize: The person with the winning board will receive 100 free letterpress party invitations printed on our A6 sized cards in two inks on our 1-ply cotton paper with 1-color letterpress printed envelopes. Choose from any of our 300+ invitation designs and create the perfect piece for your next event! Be sure to take a look at our Social Album for  inspiration.

  2. My Favorite Place board is inspired by Houghton College, where I met the love of my life! My board is all about how Houghton and the beautiful surrounding areas have been my guiding inspiration in designing my wedding.

  3. My favorite place is Cedar Key, FL because it reminds me of my family and childhood memories!

  10. My favorite place is New York City. I am submitting a wedding board inspired by a picture I took during a recent visit to the “Big Apple.” I hope you love it!! Thank you for the opportunity to win free letterpress invitations.

  11. I chose to highlight “Old Hawaii.” I think it best captures my love of the islands’ culture and natural beauty.

  12. My favorite place is Paris where we just became engaged!

  13. My favorite place Bahia Honda State Park, a beautiful natural setting. Where you can see wonderful key deer along the beach and beautiful dophins in the crystal clear water. This place is dear to me a place I can go to find peace. This will be the place for my daughters wedding March 18th 2013, and where my inspiration will come to create a setting that will not overtake the blue green waters.

  14. My favorite place is Miami Beach. I live in New York, so when I escape I need the combination of city and beach. It’s perfect.
