My Mind’s Eye Kate & Co. | Mid Week Mojo Petunia #2

Petunia – Week 2 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

This seems to be the busiest time of year for me and I suspect for everyone out there. With that in mind we have decided to recycle an existing Mid Week Mojo. So enjoy seeing photos of my son playing football once again.  My Mind’s Eye Kate & Co was the perfect collection for today’s Mid Week Mojo and these photos of my son playing football. Not only is the color palette more masculine, but they match the green of my son’s uniform to the tee. This year’s football season again ended with a little bit of heartbreak, but the team played their hearts out.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

I love how My Mind’s Eye always includes such great chipboard accessories. They are so easy to layer and since they are self-adhesive, adding them to a project is a piece of cake.

One of the patterned papers includes journaling cards on one side. Easy to trim out and create your journaling blocks.

Creating banners is super easy with the included layered and chipboard stickers.

Who says flowers are only for girls?

Echo Park Through the Year | Monday Craft Madness #43

When we had our retreat a few months ago I was able to travel with some lovely ladies around to see some of our local manufacturers. We went to visit Echo Park and Madison showed us some new collections. Their Through the Year Collection twas one of those. I got excited about the calendar theme of this collection. I dreamed of making calendars for grandma for Christmas, a birthday calendar and a goal calendar. I decided to day to make the start of a goal-themed calendar so I have something to look to for next year. So today’s theme is:

Goal-oriented

Create something that showcases a goal you have achieved or hope to achieve.   Here’s what I created:

 

I am hoping I can flip through this calendar each month of next year and accomplish a goal I planned ahead. Everyone wish me luck! Check out some more of the pages.

Here’s hoping that looking at something bright and happy will help me accomplish some of my goals for next year.

SEI Page Kits | Mid Week Mojo Petunia #1

Petunia – Week 1 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

Sometimes we really want to create, but we feel a little blocked. The best thing for me to do in that case is use a kit where someone else has done all of the creative work.  SEI Page Kits & Card Kits are the the perfect choice when you find yourself in this predicament. With tons of choices for themes, you can either use the existing full-color instructions or create something on your own. For today’s  Mid Week Mojo I used the Fall Leaves kit, but changed up the sketch a little. The pre-cut pieces int he kit make it so easy.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

I loved layering the mesh and the included leaf embellishments to create the embellishment bundles.

Use page kits that already have pre-cut pieces, but adjust the layout to fit your own needs.

A big congrats to Christina Steel, you are last week’s winner! I love how you turned it into a double page layout!

Please send an email to giveaway@steals.com and include your address and tell them you are our Mid Week Mojo Winner and we will send some scrapbook swag your way!

Crate Paper Open Road | Monday Craft Madness #42

A couple of months ago I was able to go on a little road trip with my two daughters to see a One Direction concert in California. It was a great time as they are getting older and may fly out of our nest at any time. When I saw the  Crate Paper Open Road Collection I decided to make a sort of mood board/bucket list. Hopefully we can take more road trips before my girls actually grow up all the way. Creating this  Monday Craft Madness was so fun as I imagined road trips across the country with my daughters. So today’s theme is:

Bucket List

Create something that shows off your bucket list. It can be a layout, a mini album or a wall hanging. Here’s what I created:

 

Our bucket list just started and with the binder rings we can keep adding to our list. I can’t wait for this summer and the start of our adventures.

First up is Fenway Park in Boston. Samantha is a huge baseball fan and the Rex Sox in particular. Our second stop is the Mall of America in Minnesota. I have been lucky enough to be there several times teaching at scrapbooking events. Samantha has always wanted to go with me and it has never worked out.  Now that she is older, we can totally plan the trip.
