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.

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!

Simple Stories Frankie & Friends | Mid Week Mojo Gardenia #8

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

This year we can’t get enough of  Simple Stories Frankie & Friends The cute images and traditional Halloween colors make for great projects. Now since Halloween is about to happen, we need more of this collection to preserve all of those memories. Today’s Mid Week Mojo features these adorable pictures of cute Liam sitting in a pumpkin. I hate to say that this kid makes me think I should have had more babies, but he kind of does. When you print all of your awesome spooky photos, this collection is sure to please.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

The patterns in this collection are traditional and awesome. With this paper I chose as the background, the arrows are already on the paper making it easy to choose where to put the photos.

The chipboard stickers are so fun and bright with traditional Halloween icons. The letter stickers included in the collection kit were the perfect size to create a title for the page. And the 3×4 & 2×2 cut apart cards make for easy additional embellishing.

A big congrats to Melissa Dehne, you are last week’s winner!

We R Memory Keepers It Factor | Monday Craft Madness #40

When we get a collection to feature on ScrapbookSteals.com one of my favorite things to do is scour the internet trying to see what brilliant crafters have done with the product. The process always simultaneously inspires me and makes me feel lame because they are always better than I can do. When I was looking at We R Memory Keepers’ It Factor I loved all of the really cool embellishments including wooden die cuts, clear acrylic stickers and plastic alphabet blocks. I found an awesome blog post over on the We R Blog by their design team member Aly Dosdall that shows off these awesome embellishments and what you can do to them. So today’s for Monday Craft Madness theme is:

Home-Made Embellishments

Create or alter your own embellishments. Layer stickers, cut die cuts out of paper, or just alter some of your favorites. Check out the layout Aly created:

The layout of Aly’s daughter’s new glasses is bright and fun, but look a little closer at all of the home made embellishments. With the “teal trunk” paper from the collection she used her circle cutter to make die cuts.

She then decided to fancy up the acrylic stickers to help them stand out a little more by using a coloring tool and permanent ink.

Aly also used the positive and negative alphabet blocks for her title. I love the eclectic look these letters add to the layout.
