My Mind’s Eye Sleigh Bells Ring | Mid Week Mojo Petunia #5

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

I am in love with this season. I can’t get enough. I love the music, the decorations and yes the presents. I find some favorite Holiday collections each year and inevitably  My Mind’s Eye Christmas Collections Tare included on that favorite list. This year they created two very unique collections and I was excited to use one as today’s Mid Week Mojo Sleigh Bells Ring has a great look with traditional colors with a black background.

Here is the layout:

I saw a project using this collection on a blog where they used squares of the patterns to create a tree for a mini album cover. I loved the idea and lifted it a little but but used strips instead of squares.

Here is the sketch:

The paper bows included in this collection are perfect for gift wrapping, but I loved the idea of using it as my tree topper on this layout. I am hoping one day this layout finds itself hanging on a wall instead of in a book.

I love this magical picture of Mason. It shows the joy and magic of the season in one photo. I wish we could all still feel this every day of the year. The alphabet sticker sheets included in this kit also have all of the holiday words you can imagine. I can’t get enough of them.

Adding the brads to create ornaments on my tree adds a little extra dimension.

A big congrats to Stephanie UScrap, you are last week’s winner!

SEI Page Kits | Mid Week Mojo Petunia #1

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

Sometimes we really want to create, but we feel a little blocked. The best thing for me to do in that case is use a kit where someone else has done all of the creative work.  SEI Page Kits & Card Kits are the the perfect choice when you find yourself in this predicament. With tons of choices for themes, you can either use the existing full-color instructions or create something on your own. For today’s  Mid Week Mojo I used the Fall Leaves kit, but changed up the sketch a little. The pre-cut pieces int he kit make it so easy.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

I loved layering the mesh and the included leaf embellishments to create the embellishment bundles.

Use page kits that already have pre-cut pieces, but adjust the layout to fit your own needs.

A big congrats to Christina Steel, you are last week’s winner! I love how you turned it into a double page layout!

Pebbles Birthday Wishes | Mid Week Mojo Gardenia #10

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

It seems that this time of year we are so focused on the holidays, we sometimes forget to celebrate birthdays. Today we try to fix that a little with  Pebbles Inc Birthday Wishes I was able to sneak some photos from cute Zach’s first birthday for today’s  Mid Week Mojo

Here is the layout:

I love the embellishments in this collection, the tags and die cuts are so cute, but my favorite has to be the ice cream chips. You can create a cone, a dish or any type of ice cream that is your favorite. There are also acrylic sprinkles and cherries for on top.

The thickers in this collection are bright and fun. Always perfect for a title, these thickers are multi colored and fit the party theme perfectly.

Adding a few pop dots to the balloon die cuts help to finish off the title with a little more flair.

I can’t get enough of how bright and happy the colors and patterns are in this collection.

A big congrats to Van Nguyen, you are last week’s winner!

SEI Album Kits | Mid Week Mojo Gardenia #9

Gardenia – Week 9 of 10

New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

This time of year is always busy for everyone. Family time, working hard, holiday parties – the list goes on and on. Every year I say I want to create photo albums as gifts for the grandparents. Well, my kids are 19, 17 and 15 and I think this year may be the first time I pull it off with SEI’S Album Kits They are so complete with everything you need to create an album as well as full color instructions, all you need is your favorite adhesives. For today’s Mid Week Mojo I just used the contents from the Noel Album Kit and used the existing layout instructions. With this kit you could always embellish more, but sometimes simple is best. Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

There are actually two similar options in this kit, so you can create a double page spread. This time with the photos horizontal.

With all of the cardstock pieces already pre-cut and the embellishments included, adding a little to each page is quick and easy.

I love how the photo mats have little corners to slide in your pictures.

These pages took me about 10 minutes to complete, I really think I could make the whole album in about an hour and have the perfect gift for grandma this year.

A big congrats to Kristina Mackeen, you are last week’s winner!
