Simple Stories Frankie & Friends | Mid Week Mojo Gardenia #8

Gardenia - Week 8 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

This year we can’t get enough of  Simple Stories Frankie & Friends The cute images and traditional Halloween colors make for great projects. Now since Halloween is about to happen, we need more of this collection to preserve all of those memories. Today’s Mid Week Mojo features these adorable pictures of cute Liam sitting in a pumpkin. I hate to say that this kid makes me think I should have had more babies, but he kind of does. When you print all of your awesome spooky photos, this collection is sure to please.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

The patterns in this collection are traditional and awesome. With this paper I chose as the background, the arrows are already on the paper making it easy to choose where to put the photos.

The chipboard stickers are so fun and bright with traditional Halloween icons. The letter stickers included in the collection kit were the perfect size to create a title for the page. And the 3×4 & 2×2 cut apart cards make for easy additional embellishing.

A big congrats to Melissa Dehne, you are last week’s winner!

We R Memory Keepers It Factor | Monday Craft Madness #40

When we get a collection to feature on ScrapbookSteals.com one of my favorite things to do is scour the internet trying to see what brilliant crafters have done with the product. The process always simultaneously inspires me and makes me feel lame because they are always better than I can do. When I was looking at We R Memory Keepers’ It Factor I loved all of the really cool embellishments including wooden die cuts, clear acrylic stickers and plastic alphabet blocks. I found an awesome blog post over on the We R Blog by their design team member Aly Dosdall that shows off these awesome embellishments and what you can do to them. So today’s for Monday Craft Madness theme is:

Home-Made Embellishments

Create or alter your own embellishments. Layer stickers, cut die cuts out of paper, or just alter some of your favorites. Check out the layout Aly created:

The layout of Aly’s daughter’s new glasses is bright and fun, but look a little closer at all of the home made embellishments. With the “teal trunk” paper from the collection she used her circle cutter to make die cuts.

She then decided to fancy up the acrylic stickers to help them stand out a little more by using a coloring tool and permanent ink.

Aly also used the positive and negative alphabet blocks for her title. I love the eclectic look these letters add to the layout.

Bo Bunny Madeleine | Mid Week Mojo Gardenia #7

Gardenia - Week 7 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

I am not one to love pink and girlie things, I think it has to do with having five (yes 5) older brothers. My birthdays and Christmases were filled with trucks and Matchbox cars. When I saw the  Bo Bunny Madeleine collection I was a little worried with all of the pink, but when I looked closer at the designs and embellishments, well I fell in love. The vintage designs that Bo Bunny is known for shine through with the hints of birds, bird cages and flowers create beautiful projects. I was excited to use it for today’s Mid Week Mojo

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

I love all of the options with this collection. You can actually create something with very little pink if you want. The layered chipboard have multiple layers with glitter and gems. I am in love.

All of the letter & word stickers included with the collection kit have something for just about whatever project you may be working on.  I love how these worked perfectly with my little Lizzie being a flower girl at my sister’s wedding. It was an awesome moment caught on film.

The paper flowers along with the brads and buttons create awesome dimension on this layout. With four different sizes of flowers you can create many bouquets.

A big congrats to Megan Hebel, you are last week’s winner!

Teresa Collins Something Wonderful | Monday Craft Madness #39

We all love paper collections that have a specific theme. Birthday, Halloween or Christmas are some of my favorites. Sometimes it’s great to find a collection without a specific theme, one you can use for any project. Today for Monday Craft Madness I used Teresa Collins Something Wonderful to make a mini album to celebrate all of the wonderful things in our lives….. So today’s theme is:

Mini Album

Create something a mini album or a project about the wonderful things in your life. Here’s what I created:

I used two pieces of chipboard for the front and back covers and then just used my handy scoring tool and some cardstock to create the binding for this album.

 

I tried to leave some space for photos and journaling in this album so I can add things as we go along through this crazy life.

This collection was created without a specific theme in mind, just something that celebrates the wonderfulness in each of our lives. Hopefully we can all find something wonderful to celebrate.

We R Memory Keepers Little One | Mid Week Mojo Gardenia #6

Gardenia - Week 6 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

TWhen that little one arrives in your life, you want to savor every single minute. I love the  We R Memory Keeper’s Little One Collection It is perfect to save all of those little moments. Since it has mostly a neutral color pallette with hints of pink and blue, it’s perfect for any little baby. For today’s Mid Week Mojo I once again got to use some photos of my co-worker’s baby boy. These pics make me just want to squish him. Luckily thoug they don’t quite make me baby hungry. I wanted to keep the embellishing to a minimum so the photos could shine.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

The plastic alphabet in this collection is really cool, you can use either the positive or negative space and the white color makes it blend into the soft background so your eyes stay on the awesome photos.

The wooden die cut embellishments make my heart happy. Not only are the images and sayings awesome, but the colors and images are so cool. Wood embellishments have gone to the next level.

A big congrats to Staci Jones you are last week’s winner!
