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.

Doodlebug Design Halloween | Monday Craft Madness #36

We have been enjoying our Annual Retreat the past few days (blog post about all the fun to come) and with all of the planning, prepping and partying I procrastinated in getting today’s project done.  I have to say a huge thank you to Van Nugyen, Erin Colby, Brenda Smith and Erin Shultz for spending the other night in my room at the retreat creating this project for me.  I love Doodlebug Design Halloween Collections  The cute, clean designs just remind me of Halloween when my kids were young.  In trying to reminisce those days I thoughf of this project, but luckily my friends and loyal ScrapbookSteals Fans actually did the creating for today’s Monday Craft Madness .… So today’s theme is:

Decor

Create something to display or show us your favorite. Here’s what I (they) created:

I love these printer trays for creating holiday decorations. They are a quick and easy way to create something fun and be able to see your creation all at the same time.  Here are some close ups:

The spider sticker and a pop dot makes a cute and scary-ish display. And those monster doodlepops, can they be any cuter?

Using the pattern papers and a little fussy cutting creates awesome little sections as well.

 

 

Some of the patterned papers that have cut out cards fit more than perfectly on their own in one of the sections.

This project turned out so cute, I just love our ScrapbookSteals fans, well family really. We are blessed here at Steals.com to call you all friends.

My Mind’s Eye Now & Then | Monday Craft Madness #31

Today for Monday Craft Madness we have a treat. Laurel Seabrook is a fantastic Designer on the My Mind’s Eye design team. She created the most awesome cards using  Now & Then Milo & Izzy Collections to make some teacher cards. I for one am thrilled that my kids are back to school soon and getting them through each year is always smoother if they have a great teacher…. So today’s theme is:

Back to School

Check out the projects and Laurel’s blog post from the My Mind’s Eye Blog.

Hi everyone, Laurel here. As a teacher I was quite happy to get the assignment of teacher cards! I am a sucker for anything school related and that includes notebook or ledger type of paper.

One thing I love to is use non-themed collections for themed cards and I thought the Now and Then collections would work perfectly for this assignment. I started with the Now and Then Milo collection to create a couple of simple masculine cards.

Easy to do with layering of the paper, chipboard and stickers. I then chose to create a card using the Now and Then Izzy as I thought the map paper would be perfect for a teacher card.

I put my Silhouette to work and die cut an apple and a frame for this fun card and once again went to work layering. I thought I was done but then the Cut & Paste Flair was calling my name so I dug into it as well.

Supplies:Now & Then- Milo:  6 X 6 pad; Friends Accent Stickers; Documented Chipboard; Now & Then-Izzy: 6 X 6 pad; Good Times 3 X 4 pack; Cut & Paste- Flair: 6 X 6 pad; Today 5X7 Sticker Sheet; Wow Chipboard Stickers

My Mind’s Eye Market Street | Mid Week Mojo Daisy #6

Daisy – Week 6 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

Today we have an extra special feature. Our friend and fan Brenda Smith is guest sketching today and showing off her amazing talent!

• • • • •

A couple months ago, I came across some photos of My Mind’s Eye’s Market Street collection. When I saw all the gold foil accents to the papers, I was instantly in love. Imagine my giddiness when I found out I would get to work with this gorgeous paper for today’s Mid Week Mojo  I used the Ashbury Heights collection. The colors were so sunny and bright, not to mention that my three favorite colors are in this collection: aqua, coral, and gold! I had some pictures from my daughter’s recent 4th birthday that I knew would fit the color scheme perfectly.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

I decided to use stars instead of the circles and layered and stitched them to give them a little dimensional effect.
There was so much good stuff in this collection that I couldn’t stop at just a layout. I also made a Project Life page using the 3×4 cards, the 6×6 pad, the chipboard buttons and accents, enamel dots, and cardstock stickers. The 3×4 cards made this spread come together so easily.
I was inspired when I saw the Ready to Frame Art Prints with gold foil accents and decided I need to make a wall hanging. I used the print with 9 circles laid out in a grid and took a heart punch and layered multiple hearts and then stitched. To finish it off, I added a flair button to the gold foil circle.
I really enjoyed working with this paper and I can almost guarantee that you will not regret buying this stuff. It is SO much prettier in person. If you would like to find out more about me, please come check out my Instagram at or my blog at . Thank you so much for having me as your MWM hostess today! I look forward to seeing what you all create!

Fancy Pants Timber Grove | Monday Craft Madness #15

Today for Monday Craft Madness  we are thrilled to have some design team projects from Fancy Pants Designs. They all used  Fancy Pants Timber Grove to make their projects. As I looked at these creations and the Timber Grove collection, I had a feeling of warmth and family. After the freezing winter so many of us have survived, I love the warm, family feeling these projects bring….. So today’s theme is:

Family

Create something about your family, for your family or something that reminds you of family. Here’s what Fancy Pants’ designers created:

This card by Jenny Evans made me remember snow days as a child sitting by the fire drinking hot chocolate.  Love this card

This cute card is so great with all of the layers although it kind of makes me want to say goodbye to winter instead of hello.

This layout by Greta Hammond shows exactly what we all feel when we think about our families. The bright happy stars she created are the perfect embellishments. 

We are so thrilled to show a couple of projects created by the fantastic Jodi Sanford, Creative Director of Fancy Pants Designs. Jodi is the sweetest girl and always puts her family first, and it shows in her projects.

We hope all of these projects made you think of your family and the warmth they bring to your life.
