What to Do When Your Pinterest Link is Gone or Evil

Recently, I have begun running into links on Pinterest that are no longer valid or infected with viruses or malware.  On Pinterest I can see the original photo or sketch of a scrapbook page or a card and often still want to scrap lift the ideas.  So, here is how I handle the problem:
  1. If the site link is invalid, return to Pinterest and try to create the image using the steps 4-8 below.
  2. If the site is infected with a virus or malware, CLOSE  YOUR BROWSER IMMEDIATELY!
  3. Open your browser and go to the Pinterest pin ONLY.  Do NOT visit the website.
  4. Recreate the sketch in your Cricut Design Space and save the file.
  5. Hit the Screen Capture and paste into paint.
  6. Edit the photo if desired and save.
  7. Pasted into Pinterest if desired for later use or cut and finish your page.
