Doodlebug Designs Spring & Easter | Mid Week Mojo Daffodil #8

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

As we all sit here wishing our winters would end and our spring would begin, looking at the  Doodlebug Design Spring & Easter Kits definitely helped. EThe bright and happy colors and designs Doodlebug is known for comes out in spades with these collections. For today’s  Mid Week Mojo I decided to use a little bit from each kit since the collections always mix and match. I love how they blended together so well to celebrate welcoming a baby girl into the Robbins family.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

Springtime is a great celebration of new flowers, new trees and new gardens. It’s also a great color palette to celebrate a new birth. While these collections were made more for spring and Easter, I love how we could highlight baby girl Robbins. Check out some close ups of the layout elements.

Simple Stories Enchanted | Mid Week Mojo Daffodil #7

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

I can’t get enough of Simple Stories lately and they have knocked it out of the park again. The Enchanted Collection  is everything you love about girls, princesses and theme park princesses. I was so excited to use this collection for today’s Mid Week Mojo and these awesome 1 year photos of my friend Jovi. I had the privilege of getting to see this little girl when her mom brought her into the office. She is probably the happiest baby I have ever met.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

I love that this girly collection has bits of blue and purple as well as the traditional princess pink. The spots of foil also just make me smile. Finding bits of it on the papers as well as in some of the embellishments just made my day.

I love how Simple Stories is doing their washi tape in paper packs instead of on rolls. Makes it easier to use in my opinion and much easier to store. I love the pop of yellow the washi tape brings to the side of this photo.

You all may have heard me squeal with delight when I realized the pink ‘princess’ sticker matched perfectly in size to the gold foiled chipboard ‘princess’ sticker. That I was able to use them both in as my title just brought a huge smile to my face.

I tend to have a love hate relationship with wood veneer pieces. I collect them and love them but can’t always find a place to put them. This collection I was able to use several of them and they fit in perfectly.

The bits and pieces packs always have such fun things to use. From tags and die cuts to words and journaling pieces, along with some pop dots you can always add interest and dimension to your projects.

A big congrats to Karrie Sweet, you are last week’s winner!  I love how you flipped the sketch!

My Mind’s Eye Market Street Ashbury Heights | Mid Week Mojo Daffodil #6

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

Due to some illness we have a recycled  Mid Week Mojo of sorts. Best thing about that is we get to see our friend and fan Brenda Smith  guest sketching today and showing off her amazing talent again! For those of you who may have tried this sketch in the past, I can’t wait to see what you come up with this time!

• • • • •

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!

Simple Stories Say Cheese II | Mid Week Mojo Daffodil #5

Daffodil – Week 5 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

I have been blessed to work in the Scrapbooking world in some capacity for over a decade now. There has been a handful of times I have loved a collection so much that I tried to save every scrap possible. I found myself trimming my papers and matching them together on a piece of cardstock so I could use the rest of the 12×12 on another project. This Say Cheese II Collection from Simple Stories is one of the best I have seen in a long time. From the nod to the happiest place on earth to the addition of the gold foil accents, this collection has everything you could ever want. So for today’s Mid Week Mojo I couldn’t help myself, I had to make two layouts. Luckily our marketing director just spent some time at Disney World.

Here are the layouts:

Here are the sketches:

For this week, choose one for a regular entry, or choose to do both for a bonus entry. Just mark one as 5a.

I am so in love with the new gold foil accents with this collection. How cool is that date? I love the extra shine it creates on these layouts.

The chipboard frames included in this collection are perfect for embellishments, instagram photos and highlighting a specific part of a photo. Again in this collection we find the awesome new Bradz that Simple Stories has created. The look of an epoxy brad but no holes or metal prongs on your projects.

The enamel dots are gold glitter! Along with other matching colors, I am in LOVE with the glitter enamel dots.

There are so many fabulous embellishments in this collection I just had to try to use as many as I could. The layered and stitched tags are sort of to die for.

A big congrats to Kassandra Missen you are last week’s winner!

Echo Park Jack & Jill | Mid Week Mojo Daffodil #4

Daffodil – Week 4 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

I got to see a bunch of new collections at the Craft & Hobby Association Trade Show last month in Anaheim. Some were great, some not so much, but this  Echo Park Jack & Jill -Boy collection was definitely one of the favorites of the show. The mix of nostalgic icons with traditional boy colors made creating today’s Mid Week Mojo super fun. I remember when I saw this collection the first photo I imagined was this cute picture of Zach with his adorable suspenders and hat.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

Echo Park has many of their traditional awesome embellishments with this collection; stickers, chipboard, enamel dots. They have now ventured into the land of ephemera packs where you find tons of awesome die cuts for your projects. I also love the rich colors included in this collection. I wanted to keep scrapping, but had to finally go to bed. Check out some close ups of this layout:
