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

Today’s steal, the My Mind’s Eye Winter Wonderland & All is Bright, is one of my all time favorite Christmas collections! The kits are jam-packed with fun papers, embellishments, stamps and so much more – there is everything you could possibly need!

I  love how today’s guest designer, Jessica Arrant, shows us how to use this collection and gives you not one, but TWO sketches to use as well!

Words can’t explain how excited I was to be asked to play here today. I danced around the house for a week. And when I found out it was My Mind’s Eye All Is Bright? I died and went to heaven. Seriously a new favorite line from one of my favorite manufacturers!

My first thought was to highlight some of the awesome Christmas graphics by fussy cutting them out of the various papers and layering them onto the same page. I also wanted to show off the subtle prints in this kit by mixing as many of them as I could. Gotta love the chevrons and polka dots. Here is the sketch I created:

And here is my layout:


I know many of you like to design two pages at the same time, so if you head over to my blog you’ll see how I had a little bit of fun with the facing page.

Here is my second sketch:

I love the use of blue in this collection! As prevalent as the Christmas theme is, it is also an incredibly versatile kit with more than enough papers to make a couple non-holiday pages with leftovers. I took this picture on Halloween! How’s that for non-traditional colors?

And how about a card, just for fun?!

I hope you all enjoy the sketches and I can’t wait to see all the awesome interpretations. You are all so inspiring!
