Birthday

Heidi Swapp Mixed Media | Monday Craft Madness #17

I have always loved making mini albums. It’s such a sense of accomplishment to start and finish a project. I was so excited about today’s steal. I love Heidi Swapp and the products she creates. I wished I had the guts to use more mixed media products like modeling paste, paint and ink on my projects, but I am not there just yet. Hopefully some day. Today for Monday Craft Madness I used Heidi Swapp Mixed Media to make a fun 1st Birthday Mini Album for the adorable Jovi….. So today’s theme is:

Mini Albums

Create something into a mini album or share your favorite. Here’s what I created:

I love the 6×8 canvas album so much. It has an awesome magnetic closure to keep your creation safe. The cover of the album is great to decorate or alter to your heart’s content.

I used the 3×4 Mini Album Kit to add a little extra photo to the album, I just couldn’t resistethat giant smile.

I wish I had been there to see Jovi crawl up to here cake and start enjoying it. You only have a first birthday once.

The 3×4 glitter cards are great to add to your album to add a little interest.

The 6×6 paper pack can be used as-is or altered with ink or paint. I love how it’s die cut already and you can have a color or pattern show through.

The 4×6 sheet protectors are great for just adding your pics to your album or you can use one of the sections for more decoration.

Fabulous is the best way to describe little Jovi and the joy she brings to this world.

Fancy Pants Designs Everyday Circus | Monday Craft Madness #16

Today for Monday Craft Madness  we are excited to bring some projects from Laurel Seabrook, member of Fancy Pants’ Design Team she used Everyday Circus to make some awesome cards. I just fell in love with them when I saw them…. So today’s theme is:

Cards

Create some fun cards or show us some of your favorites. Here’s what Laurel created:

I love how she used the “Posters” 12×12 patterned paper as her base for the cards.  Adding some other papers and embellishments and a little bit of stitching she created some awesome circus-themed cards.

Check out some close-ups of each card. I love how she used the tickets to add a little pizzaz to the cards.

Teresa Collins Tinsel & Company | Monday Craft Madness #15

It’s a party around here at Steals.com this week.  Our sister-site BabySteals.com is turning 7!  That’s right 7 years old! Check out some of the fun stuff planned here.

Even though it is Birthday Party time around here, a celebration is a celebration right? Today for Monday Craft Madness I wanted to share a cool idea from one of Teresa Collins’ design team members Cheri Piles. She used Teresa Collins Tinsel & Company to make a beautiful non-Christmas wreath for her door….So today’s theme is:

Switch it Up

Create something unexpected. Use a themed collection to create something non-theme specific. Here’s what Cheri created:

Cheri started off with some flat wreath bases from her local craft store.

The wreath came together pretty quickly and easily here are the first steps:

  1. Spray the two bases and star ornament white
  2. Add some clear or white glitter to the smaller wreath
  3. Set all three pieces aside to dry
  4. Cut 8 strips 1 1/2″ and 8 strips 1 1/4″
  5. Cut each strip 6″ in length for a total of 16 strips each
  6. Use the Teresa Collins Stapler or another stapler to assemble your paper chain

Once your pieces are dry take some invisible thread and hang the small wreath to the center of the large base and glue your star wood ornament to the center of the small one.

Tie your ribbon on and hot glue the larger pieces onto the base. If you like a little extra bling add some stars from the sequins package to finish it off.

Echo Park Birthday Wishes | Mid Week Mojo Daffodil #10

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

If there’s one thing each and every year that always comes…it’s birthdays. Our birthdays, our children’s birthdays, their friend’s birthdays, their cousin’s birthdays – the list goes on and on and on. Sometimes we dread celebrating those milestones each and every year, but now there’s something that can make us smile through the process.  Birthday Wishes from Echo Park Paper Ts a bright and happy birthday collection with all of the traditional elements we think of. From cake and candles to party hats and presents, this collection has everything you need for your celebratory memories. Today’s Mid Week Mojo was super fun to create.  I just can’t get enough of little Jovi and her 1st birthday celebration. This collection suited her celebration perfectly.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

I decided to concentrate all of the elements in one spot on this page.  Negative space is a hard thing for me to leave, but I do love how this one turned out. Starting with a 4″ x 4″ photo, I built the space around it.

The available sticker elements in this collection were perfect for this layout.  From the title to the balloons and cupcakes I found everything I wanted to add to this layout.

A few pop dots and a few gems finish up the layout and highlight Jovi as the princess she truly is.

A big congrats to Leslie Walker, you are last week’s winner!
