Kaisercraft Mint Twist Projects | Monday Craft Madness #28

I’m not sure if it’s the time of year; end of summer, getting kids ready for school etc., but I seem to have lost my mojo.  Today’s  Monday Craft Madness couldn’t have come at a better time. The best thing for me to try to get back my mojo is to follow instructions and create something someone else created. The  Mint Twist Project Kits from Kaisercraft  have three different projects you can make….. So today’s theme is:

Follow

Create something from a kit, with instructions, an online tutorial or even one of our Mid Week Mojos. I promise if you aren’t feeling creative, this will totally help! Here’s what I created:

I can’t really take any credit for how this project looks, I followed the directions almost exactly. I just added a little bit of glitter and other stickers. I love that I was able to sit down and finish an entire mini album project in less than an hour. Check out some close ups:

I do love the little bits of pink in this collection. It seems to bring the traditional Christmas to another level of happy.

Simple Stories Life Documented Planner Series | Monday Craft Madness #28

Today for Monday Craft Madness we are re-featuring a special steal, at a special steal price. We have loved the Simple Stories Life Documented Planner Series for a while now. We are excited to have it again for for all of you creative planner lovers out there. This series has everything you could need in one system. Plan your days, your weeks, your months, your life and your crafting. If you haven’t taken the creative planner plunge, now is a great time to start. One of the buyers here at Steals.com took the planner for a test run and fell in love. We may have seen this before, but we LOVE what she did with her planner. Check it out.

Kerianne is a buyer for BabySteals.com, a teacher, a mom and wife. Needless to say her schedule is full. The happy look on her face from using this planner system made me smile.

I love how she used the notes page to write down some goals, favorite quotes and just things she wants to concentrate on during the month. This planner is so much more than a carpool schedule.

Go check out Simple Stories’ Blog Here to find more ways to use this awesome planner.

So today may not be a traditional Monday Craft Madness Theme , but we hope we have helped inspire you a little to get a little more organized.  I know I need that in my life.

Crate Paper Journey | Monday Craft Madness #27

The  Journey Collection from Crate Paper is a collection geared for travel and is perfect for that. Since I haven’t had any fabulous vacations this summer I decided to create something not exactly travel related for today’s Monday Craft Madness I keep seeing projects created with embroidery hoops and I love the idea so much I decided to give it a try. Along with my 2015 theme of self discovery I created something to put on my wall….. So today’s theme is:

Decor

Create something meaningful to you that you can hang in your space. Here’s what I created:

 

I love the bits of gold in this collection and those gold die cut states!  I almost wanted to make a US map to plot out a road trip. Maybe I still will…Check out some close ups of the fantastic products in today’s kit.

My Mind’s Eye My Story | Monday Craft Madness #26

This year has been a year of reflection for me. I’ve been wanting to create a place to write down the lessons I’ve learned about myself and life and the NEW My Story Collection from My Mind’s Eye  fis the perfect collection to start a journal. So for today’s Monday Craft Madness I decided to start a sort of mini album/journal to jot down all of the lessons I have learned this year. So today’s theme is:

Reflection

Create something about something you have learned about yourself, about life or about someone else. Here’s what I created:

I just used some 6″ x 8″ chipboard pieces, my cropadile and some binder rings. This way I can add to the book as the years go on. Check out some of the pages…

I love the modern color scheme with a bit of vintage flair in this collection. The touches of gold just brings a happy feminine sense as well.

My Mind’s Eye Frightful | Monday Craft Madness #25

One of the hardest things for me each and every week is trying to decide what to create for the weekly Monday Craft Madness I usually lean towards cards, albums, tags…things like that. Today I wanted to go a little outside my own personal box and to my surprise I am happy with the end result. I used My Mind’s Eye’s Frightful Collection to make a wreath for my door. I kind of love it and love even more that I will have tons of papers & embellishments to still create cards, tags and more….. So today’s theme is:

Home Decor

Create something you can hang in your home and enjoy. Here’s what I created:

I added some tulle from my fabric stash to take away from the spookiness of the wreath. (Not that it’s really spooky) I love the chipboard pieces included in the kit, they are so sturdy and super sticky.

The enamel shapes in the form of bats – how could you not love that?

I can’t even handle how much I love that there are mustaches on the pumpkins and skeletons, brings a sense of unexpected whimsy.
