In an effort to give each of you time to complete as many of the crop challenges as possible I am posting the challenges for you today so that you can get prepping and get the wheels turning.

Winter Online Crop Challenge #1 – This challenge is to complete the Amethyst Mid Week Mojo sketch #1. Here is a copy of the sketch if you haven’t gotten started on it already.

Winter Online Crop Challenge #2 - Keepin’ It Real: Your challenge is to create a layout about something real. No froofing up the details to paint a picture perfect memory. Scrapbook those snotty noses, or the mountains of laundry that never seem to be conquered. Whatever you choose, make sure it’s something that looking back down the road, your posterity will realize that you were a normal, “real” person too!

Xyron Mini X | Mid Week Mojo

Amethyst – Layout 1

Can you believe it?! We have finished up another 10 week series of amazing scrapbook layout sketches in our Mid Week Mojo Series! The layouts that each of you have created over the past two and a half months have been absolutely amazing and I’m so excited to be starting out fresh again with our Amethyst Mid Week Mojo Series.

For those of you that have ever thought about jumping in on the fun, now is the time to get started. With a simple sketch provided each week by myself or another guest sketcher, how much easier can it be to fill your family albums with precious memories?

Well  it can be made a wee bit easier with today’s steal, the Xyron Mini X and the Ultimate Adhesive Tool Kit. What paper crafter doesn’t love a great adhesive? I know I’ve been frustrated from time to time with adhesives that just don’t make the cut, or rather make the stick. Xyron adhesives are amazing. When you want the sticky stuck Xyron is a definite thumbs up!

I’ve been truly loving the mini photo layouts lately so I decided to challenge myself and see just what I could come up with for today’s sketch.

Mid Week Mojo

I recently joined an amusing little Facebook group and each day we post photos of our findings when we sweep our floors. Not only has this group made me feel “normal” about the mysterious amounts of rubbish that I am continually finding on my floor several times a day, but it’s been highly entertaining to see what everyone else comes up with! I thought it would be fun to create a layout featuring the floors of several of our group members.

Mid Week Mojo

For those of you that purchased the My Mind’s Eye, Miss Caroline Dilly Dally collection, today’s layout is an example of what you can create with that collection. I was pretty excited that I could hand choose the papers that I wanted to create this layout. The combination of woodgrains, and the red and white checkers along with the grey grid mimicked to me to perfection the feeling of kitchen floors.

Even though it’s a bit of a crazy layout, having 14 photos on one page, I love how it turned out and I have to shout out an extra special thank you to all of the girls who let me air their dirty floors. Oh and if you’re wondering, my floor is the photo with the white heart, and cheerio, and who knows what else!

And now it’s time to shout out to our Garnet #1o winner and the lucky winner of the Garnet series.

Congrats are in order for Jessica Arrant, who is the lucky winner of our regular weekly series.

Jessica you page is absolutely lovely and I love how you added the extra photos to fill the white space. It turned out to perfection! If you will please send an email to customerservice@stealnetwork.com we will be happy to send a prize out to you to keep the Mid Week Mojos coming!

And now for the winner of the Garnet series Mid Week Mojos and the We R Memory Keepers Cinch. Cyndee Kawa, you are our lucky girl!

I have to take a super quick moment to thank Cyndee personally for the amazing contribution that she is to our happy ScrapbookSteals family. I had the pleasure of meeting her at our ScrpabookSteals crop last November and she is amazing. Not only do I admire her handwriting, and her darling creations, but I love that she has a true gift for capturing the real, every day memories of life. Congrats Cyndee! We have already taken care of arrangements on shipping your Cinch!

Good luck to everyone starting out fresh on our Amethyst series.
