My Mind’s Eye Just Sayin’ | Monday Craft Madness #34

As I was trying to think of what to make with  My Mind’s Eye Just Sayin’  I came across a blog post from My Mind’s eye and a project created by the wonderful Amber Packer. She used this collection to create a full alphabet wall decoration. (Check it out here) I loved how the papers looked on the letters so today for Monday Craft Madness I decided to do something similar. I love creating things for co-workers and one of our staff recently had a baby girl and I thought this collection would be perfect for the little princess…… So today’s theme is:

Princess

Create something with a princess theme, about your little princess or for a princess in your life. Here’s what I created:

I love the bold glitter (and it didn’t get all over my craft space!) and the dark and pink colors of this collection. The hints of blue throughout the collection are a great contrast. Check out the letters up close.

It took less than an hour to cover all of the letters and add some embellishments for this project.  Go to your craft store, pick out your favorite letters and make something fun.

Fancy Pants Designs Burlap & Bouquets | Monday Craft Madness #30

I’ve been looking at this collection since the release days, just loving every bit of it.  It’s so pretty with an earthy twist on it. It has made me smile so I decided I needed to make something that I could look at every day. Today for Monday Craft Madness I used Fancy Pants Burlap & Bows to make a bouquet I can give to a friend….. So today’s theme is:

Flowers

Create something with flowers, floral paper or floral embellishments. Or even create a layout about the beautiful garden you are cultivating. Here’s what I created:

This was a pretty quick and easy bouquet to create, I did a pinwheel from solid cardstock, added some buttons and die cut flowers from the ephemera pack. I love the burlap bows in this collection, I added them to the bouquet also.

The small tags included in this collection have some really great sayings. I trimmed them down to just the words and matted them on some paper.

I also just added some of the large flowers from the ephemera pack to the sticks and included them in the bouquet.

The ephemera pack also had some great quotes I matted one and included in the bouquet.

Finally I filled a mason jar up with some rice and added a card to the front that included one of the small tags and some of the buttons.

I know just what friend I want to give this to, to thank her for all of her love and support. I hope it makes her smile.

Teresa Collins Stationary Noted | Monday Craft Madness #24

I always love using products from Teresa Collins, and was excited to use her products for today’s Monday Craft Madness she has great designs and beautiful color schemes. When I sat down to look through this Stationary Noted Collection I found something amazing. Thy typical cool embellishments, rich colors and beautiful designs were there and it would have been easy to create a card or layout with this collection. As I looked through the chipboard embellishments, stickers and die cuts I noticed something…some very inspirational sayings and quotes. I just had to create something that gathered all of these sayings….. So today’s theme is:

Inspiration

Words have always inspired me. These days Teresa is someone that continually inspires me, what inspires you?  Here’s what I created:

I titled the project “Words to Live By” because I think a constant reminder of these quotes and sayings would be good for all of us.

I love creating with these artist trays, the little windows of paper crafting always make me smile.

I have a bad tendency of trying to compare myself to others, hopefully reading this every day will help.

Check out the rest of the quotes and sayings. Every single one is something we should have in our lives.

Echo Park Paper Walking on Sunshine | Monday Craft Madness #20

I am so excited summer is finally upon us. No more snow and cold weather. I wanted to make something I could hang up to celebrate how happy I am that it is now sunny outside. Today for Monday Craft Madness I used Echo Park Paper Walking on Sunshine to make a little framed bit of sunshine….. So today’s theme is:

Home Decor

Create something that can be displayed for everyone to enjoy, or show us some of your favorite home decor papercrafting projects. Here’s what I created:

I found a shadow box on sale at my local craft store and went to work. The bright happy colors and patterns of this collection made me smile.

For us summer is all about family. I love how the word stickers match my sentiments of summer perfectly.

The nostalgic elements brought me right back to summers at the lake with my grand parents. I even saw a flying fish once.

I think this may end up being one item we bring out for the wall each and ever summer.

What is your favorite part about summer?

We R Memory Keepers Hip Hip Hooray | Monday Craft Madness #16

It’s birthday time around here. A big Happy Birthday to our sister site,  babySTEALS.com! They are turning 6 today. We wanted to join in the festivities so today for Monday Craft Madness I used We R Memory Keepers Hip Hip Hooray to make a banner for the party we are planning….. So today’s theme is:

Banners

Banners are a big thing these days in paper crafting. Create a spring banner, a birthday banner, a home decor banner or show us one of your favorites. Here’s what I created:


A great thing about We R Memory Keepers’ papers is that on the back of some of the papers they have reduced designs in 6×6 blocks, just like a 6×6 paper pad. This little fact made creating this banner so quick and easy.

I just cut a few of those 6×6 pieces, decorated the fronts with some embossed tags, chipboard letters and a few elements fussy cut out of the 12×12 papers. Volia…a birthday banner was born.

With a little bit of ribbon and tulle, the banner looks fancy enough for any party. Check out some more close ups.

If you want to join in the babySTEALS birthday fun, and I know you do, check out the party here. You can also take a peek at all of their awesome steals for the week here.

Happy Birthday babySTEALS.com!
