October Afternoon Treasure Map | Mid Week Mojo Tulip #10

Tulip – Week 1 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

We have all been waiting for the new  Treasure Map Collection from October Afternoon and we are thrilled to have it here at ScrapbookSteals!  When I first got my hands on this collection I started planning the outings, clothing and trips to take so I can create memories and photos. I wish my kids were still little and cooperative and I could plan a photo shoot. Instead I decided to see if I could use the collection as a general layout for today’s  Mid Week Mojo To my delight I love how it turned out.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

October Afternoon always has such fun embellishments; stickers, chipboard, journaling die cuts and more. Making a little embellishment collage was fun on this project.

I decided this time to use my pop dots to highlight the photo instead of multiple embellishments. I think it brings focus to the most important part!

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!

October Afternoon Milk Money | Monday Craft Madness #12

October Afternoon always has awesome nostalgic collections. They have easily become some of my very favorites. Today for Monday Craft Madness I we are going to showcase some awesome projects made by the October Afternoon design team using the Milk Money Collection I love the pocket page movement and that you can mix up your scrapbooking and keep it interesting….. So today’s theme is:

Pocket Pages

Create something using a pocket page. Here’s what we found from the October Afternoon Design Team:

Jill Sprott created a great year in review pocket page with Milk Money.

I love this pocket page and how they added bits and pieces of info from school onto each square. Remembering the bits is hard to do when we get older, this is an awesome way to keep in in your memory.

Mou Saha created some beautiful work with pocket pages and Milk Money.

The simplicity of this look is amazing. The photos take center stage.

Laura Vegas created a great album about her time with CKU Scrapbook Conventions. I love the versatility of this collection that it can be used for more than school projects.

Fancy Pants Designs As You Wish | Mid Week Mojo Daffodil #9

Daffodil – Week 9 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

I’ve been a bit on a journey this year so far. I’m going through self-discovery as well as trying to concentrate on more positive things. Today’s collection, Fancy Pants Designs As You Wish Tis a perfect collection to help remind myself to work on being a better person. While the collection has a definite travel vibe, it also has a great sentiment towards shifting your focus.  Today’s  Mid Week Mojo has something I rarely do, a picture of myself.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

I love the tags, stickers and embellishments Fancy Pants creates. They always seem to match whatever project you are working on.

The variety of chipboard and plastic buttons are awesome to add your dimension and interest to your projects. One of my very favorite pieces are the title cards. They are a little ‘fancy’ but also perfect for your layouts and mini albums. It seems they choose the perfect quotes for every project I start working on.

A big congrats to Gail Owens, you are last week’s winner!
