iPICKS, Week 46

Welcome to iPICKS where I post a selection of my favorite Stampin' Up! cards and projects for the week. There's no formal rules or guidelines ... just inspiring projects that catch my eye, clever ideas, and exceptional designs. These are projects that inspire me and I hope they inspire you too!

I thought I'd try presenting iPICKS through Clipmarks this week. I'd love to hear what you think of the change!

Here are my iPICKS for Week 46 ...

I love the clipmarks. It makes it so much easier. Before I wouldn't check all the ipicks because I didn't want to go to each blog. Now if I see something interesting I can go to that blog. Thanks for the change.

Marie said...

Looks like you got some time to browse, even with your busy schedule!! I hope things settle down soon, I always love seeing what you've posted in my Google Reader. Have a great week!!!

Kristie Parkins said...

I love the clipmarks!! I've never seen them before. I read your blog through google reader, and I adore being able to see the pictures without having to click through all the links.

I always look through your ipicks each week, and usually bookmark at least one for future reference. Thanks for putting together your favorites for everyone to see!

I have been following your picks for some time now. I can tell our tastes must be similar because I've noticed (and liked) the same ones! I do like the new format.

Often come to your blog to view your ipicks - and today find the "clipmarks" so much easier than clicking back and forth! THANKS! Thanks for always sharing!

I love the way you did iPicks this week! Definitely a time saver for me. I always love all your choices regardless of how you post them, though. Have a great week!

Wanda said...

Wow, those are great. Now I can see you picks in a second and not have to go to each individual blog. Thanks.

Amanda said...

Absolutely love the clipmarks presentation. Would love to know how you have done it!

Great time saver for me as I always want to view all your iPicks as they are fab! Saving that time means I can go and look on some of the blogs clipped instead. So double WOW for me!

Thanks so much for the mention, Nancy.

I love the clipmarks too. It's such a joy checking your blog every Monday morning to see who made your picks.

Such awesome talent out there!

Trish said...

Love, love, love the new Clipmarks. Makes it so much easier to go from card to card. It took so much longer before and usually I didn't get to them all. Please keep this format.

Love the clipmarks! What a time saver! Sometimes the blogger's title doesn't do the project justice. This way, I can see each one for myself, quickly. You always have great picks. Thanks!

AnMiSu said...

I love the clipmarks! I have to admit, I am another one who wouldn't click on all of the links so I was probably missing a lot of awesome projects. I love this setup, especially where you add the links as well, then I can go see more artwork from the ones I like the best.

Amanda Cable said...

Your IPicks are a highlight for me, so the clipmarks are sensational! What a great timesaver! :) Thanks for blessing us with this new idea today. :)

Candice Schwartz said...

Oh I just LOVE the clipmarks

I can see why the Clipmarks are so popular- it is much faster to see everything. Guess I won't have any more days of 1500 blog hits (imagine Eyore's slow sulky voice). ... but that's OK LOL! Thanks so much for picking one of my cards this week Nancy. You really put a lot of effort into doing this for your fans!

....Linda.... said...

The clipmarks are fantastic - I have never seen them before - saves so much time and prevents computer freezeups! Thank you thank you!

Oh I *love* the clips! Thanks for sharing :)

Wendy said...

Love the clipmarks. I make it a point to visit your blog each week for the iPICKS. It is nice to view your picks and if I want to see more of a persons work I can just open the link.

Love IT!

Stephanie Smith said...

Love the new set up on your picks. It definitely saves us time since we don't have to go back and forth from your blog to the others. Thanks for the change.

Lynda said...

Love the Clipmarks. istamp is my Monday lunchtime activity at the office and this makes it so much easier to view details of any card I choose. I so enjoy your blog every day...but Mondays are my fav.

Anonymous said...

Okay so here is the one not so popular opinion. I see your picks as a way to drive traffic to the blog of the original creator. I love checking your site each week for the record. Isn't posting the pictures if you did not get permission copyright infringement? Not only that you have moved their creation to another site to host the image. I totally get why you all love it being this done this way but is it fair to the original creator?

Linda:) said...

Thanks so much! Like this so much better.

I love this idea!!! It's great to see all the images from your blog!! Thanks for always sharing!

I love the clipmarks (just like the others), it makes seeing the cards so easy.
Thank you for your hard work browsing through all the website and share with us.

Carol B said...

Love your blog, love the ipicks, and LOVE the clipmarks! I really like that I can see all the photos in your post, but that I can also see the creator's blog address and name so I can hop over there if I want to. Thanks for such a fun feature and for showcasing great talent that we might not find on our own.

Melodie Hoschek said...

Thanks for using clipmark. It makes so much easier to see everyones projects.

Karen Graff-Povis said...

This saves me so much time!!! I love it!!! I love to see the pictures of the projects that you pick!

Terri Garrett said...

Love, LOve, LOVE it! What an amazing gift of it is for me and other readers to not have to click through to each one. Admittedly, some weeks I just didn't have the time or energy to do, and surely missed out in my haste. However, this way it is easy and fast! Thanks Nancy for all you do!!

Becca said...

I love the clipmarks, it makes it so much easier to enjoy your picks. Thanks for the great blog.

Stamp/nScrap said...

Nancy,

I REALLY like the new format - quick to check out the cards/projects you are featuring, while still giving me the option to visit their blog to see some of their other creations. I vote to do it like this each week!

DCG and JAG said...

Love the new format ... I usually had to skip over your iPicks post because I didn't have time to visit each of the individual links, this way I can get a quick peek and know if I want to explore something further. Keep up the great work!

Rene' said...

Love the clipmarks. As far as copyright is concerned...you aren't selling anyone else's designs, and you are giving credit to the artist where credit is due. Thanks for sharing with us!

Ann Schach said...

Wow, Nancy! Thank you so much for selecting three of my cards as iPICKS this week! I am honored, and somewhat speechless! As for the clipmarks, it certainly makes it easier to view the projects, and is a time saver for sure! Once again, thank you, and congratulations to the other "picks".

Grace said...

Love the clipmarks. I can see everything so much quicker! thanks!

Jeanette said...

I much prefer the actual photo in I picks. I have rarely gone to them since the list gets so long. If I want more info or to see more of that creators work then I go to their site. I think you have given credit with your style of posting and I don't think it is copyright infringement. If someone thinks it is infringement they should recheck the official law to refresh their knowledge.

Kathy Mc said...

Nancy, I don't think I have to tell you what an awesome idea you had to show your iPicks using Clipmarks. Only saw one negative comment out of almost 100 so I think we all picked you as the winner. They should be honored to have their work selected as your favorites for the week. Thanks for all you do for your faithful blog readers!

Joan said...

Love the Clipmarks and your IPICKS - I look forward to them every week.

Anonymous said...

Why does someone have to find a negative to something that is GREAT.!!!! Well I still think that you are giving credit to the person that has created it... and if the person likes what they see they can go to the web site and check it out!!

Patti MacLeith said...

I never heard of iPicks before, but I am so happy that you like my card! I'm flattered!

Denise said...

I love it...saves me having to click on all the links you provide!

Avril Miller said...

I ADORE IPICKS!!! I look forward to it all week! The way that you have now changed it to clip-links is brilliant....easy to look at and still gives full credit to the "creator" of the art. Thank you for doing such a great job at all of this and providing us with this weekly "treat"
