Greetings!
Melissa Dehne here and I am glad to be back again today with the Petunia 10 Mid Week Mojo. First of all, this Fancy Pants collection is incredible. It is loaded with so many wonderful options, be sure to take a look at all that you could use to scrapbook with! Choosing which pieces to use was challenging but, oh so fun! I really wanted to include more, but also wanted my layout to look balanced! That must be the reason that I have two more layouts ready to roll using more of the pieces that are available today! Here is the sketch for this week:
The Nautical collection has a summery, seaside, poolside, vacation vibe to it. How is that possible, you ask? I am not sure, but Fancy Pants has got it all figured out. It worked out well that the photos I wanted to use were both seaside and vacation themed. However, with all of the colors, embellishments and papers, the possibilities are plentiful with this collection! Here is my layout:
The Nautical kit includes some awesome 4×6 and 3×5 brag cards which I used for the upper right and lower left quadrants of the layout, as well as the little lighthouse card. I also used the large decorative tags, the title pieces (the “adventure definition” piece), an anchor from the button set, label stickers, as well as one of the toppers included with the kit.
There were several alphabet options on the sticker fundamentals page (FIVE alphas to choose from!) as well as other fun sticker choices! Be sure to look at what this collection all includes because this is only the tip of the iceberg in regard to options for your layout!
I hope that the sketch inspires you to join us this week! I look forward to seeing what you all post! A big thank you to Melodee and ScrapbookSteals for allowing me to create for you this week!

Today we are super thrilled to welcome back one of our favorite guest sketchers for today’s Mid Week Mojo  Brenda Smith has created dozens of awesome layouts and sketches for us, I am so excited she got to use Teresa Collins Life Emporium today for her project, it’s one of my favorites. Check out what she made.

Good morning and thanks for having me back again this week! I’ve enjoyed seeing all of your entries for my sketch last week and look forward to what you all come up with this week. I was lucky enough to work with Teresa Collins’ Life Emporium line for this week’s sketch. The papers have this lovely texture to them and are so satisfyingly heavy so they were fun to work with.

First, my sketch:

And my layout:

The colors in this collection are very earthy so I thought nothing would go better than some of my most recent favorite nature pictures.

I popped up the pennant just slightly to give it some dimension. The chipboard borders and word art were perfect for creating my title.

I finished off the layout with a little machine stitching and accenting with the chipboard buttons and regular buttons.

I hope you enjoy creating with today’s sketch and I look forward to seeing what you make!

Echo Park Paper Collections | Mid Week Mojo Petunia #8

Petunia – Week 8 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

Today we are super thrilled to welcome a guest sketcher to our Mid Week Mojo  Brenda Smith has created dozens of awesome layouts and sketches for us, I am so excited she got to use Echo Park Paper’s Capture Life Collection Kit today for her project. Check out what she made.

• • • • •

Hello my fellow Stealers. I am so happy to be back here with another Midweek Mojo sketch for you. Even more exciting is that I got to use an absolutely fun and adorable line by Echo Park Paper and designed by Allison Kreft, Capture Life. There are so many sunny, bright colors and whimsical patterns like bokeh and brush script lettering. And to my surprise, I was also sent Capture Life in Black and White so I had a bunch of the same patterns in black and white. Let me tell you, I had so much fun making this layout.

First, I’ll show you my sketch. I wanted to play around with layers since there were so many fabulous papers to choose from.

Now, my layout.

I knew I wanted to use the black and white paper with the “all you need is love” as a large part of my background but also had to work in that bokeh paper because it is so fun!

There are so many fun sticker elements in both of these collection packs so I worked a lot of those into my layout.

This was such a fun collection to play with and I can’t wait to make more with it.

I’m looking forward to seeing your interpretations of the sketch this week! Thanks for playing along.

A big congrats to Charissa Miller, you are last week’s winner!

Teresa Collins Nine & Co. | Mid Week Mojo Petunia #7

Petunia – Week 7 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

Today we are super excited to welcome guest sketcher Melissa Dehne on our blog. She got to use Teresa Collins’ Nine & Co.  for today’s Mid Week Mojo She’s such a great scrapbooker I, for one, am thrilled to see more of her work.

Greetings! Melissa Dehne here today with a new sketch and layout for you on this Wednesday morning! I had the pleasure of working with the Teresa Collins collection Nine & Co for this layout. Simply stated, it is a gorgeous collection! It’s full of color, beauty, touches of gold and packed full of fun & pretty embellishments. From the paper to the verses on the ephemera, it is evident how much TLC went into designing this collection.

Here is the Petunia 7 sketch:

And here is my layout:

As you can see, I used many of the pieces that the collection had to offer. The overlay over the photo, the rub-on below the journaling box, and the chipboard stickers were just some of the options that I had to choose from when designing this page.

The chipboard and ephemera words “wonderful” and “life” jumped out at me and I decided to make them part of my title. Those, along with a journaling card trimmed down created the entire title for me! I have to admit though, my adoration for anything with sparkle and shine couldn’t help but love all of the gold foil shimmer that this collection had to offer.
The sketch I created uses one 4×6 photo but you can easily accommodate a 5×7 photo or even two 3×5 photos as well. Perhaps a chance to scrapbook some of the holiday photos that you took recently? I know I have plenty to choose from!
Since I enjoyed working with this collection so much, I decided to make one more layout, just for fun, to share with you today as well.

The sequins that come with this collection were begging to be displayed. I obliged since I love them so much! I also used one of the brads, more chipboard stickers as well as a vellum sticker on this layout. So much to choose from…so little time!
I hope that you will consider joining us for this week’s Mid-Week Mojo! I look forward to seeing what you create!
Thanks to Melodee and Scrapbook Steals for having me!

Tis the Season around here and we are getting really excited.  Even more exciting is that this week we have the fabulous Heather Conklin sharing a layout she created with Authentique Paper’s Believe Collection for today’s Mid Week Mojo This collection has so many wonderful designs, I love how Heather used as many as possible by making stripes out of the papers.

The cardstock stickers in this collection, as with all of Authentique’s collections are thick and wonderful, perfect for titles and embellishments alike.

Since this is such a beautiful collection I wanted to share a couple more projects Heather made with this collection. Click through to her blog to see a closer look and a step-by-step to the beautiful wall art.
