My Mind’s Eye Joyous | Mid Week Mojo Lilac #4

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

I used to be one of those that would walk around the mall and be a tiny bit annoyed when I started seeing Christmas goodies in all of the stores in the middle of the summer. Then…I started working in the paper-crafting industry and each July my heart warmed seeing the new holiday collections. I start to have feelings of love, family, warmth, excitement (for presents). Today’s feature, My Mind’s Eye Christmas Collections brought up all of those feelings and I was excited to use it for today’s Mid Week Mojo

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

Normally I’m not a giant fan of glitter, but with this collection it seems to be in the perfect places. All of the colors and designs were great to add interest to this layout.

The decorative brads included in this kit are so great to add dimension to your projects. The word stickers that are included with the alphabet stickers are a great way to add those holiday sentiments.

Simple Stories So Fancy | Mid Week Mojo Lilac #2

Lilac – Week 2 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

We alway seem to be looking for good, basic boy and girl collections. We do, after all, seem to scrapbook for our kids adventures the most. I have totally fallen in love with  Simple Stories’ So Rad & So Fancy Collections It was perfect for today’s Mid Week Mojo The one year photos of the adorable Jovi seemed perfect to match the girly So Fancy collection

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

Simple Stories always has such great collections and embellishments that match, this collection is no exception. From stickers to enamel dots, I fell in love one embellishment at a time.

The chipboard frames are great for adding dimension and extra photos to a layout. Show off that cute face with the different sizes of frames.

As always a little pop dot goes a long way. Along with the Bradz and enamel dots, the ephemera die cuts can create some awesome embellishment clusters on your project.

The base of this particular paper created a perfect title for the layout. I just added some of the chipboard stickers and changed the title from ‘fancy’ to ‘fancy girl’.

 

A big congrats to Margaret Roberts, you are last week’s winner!

Echo Park Pirates | Mid Week Mojo Lilac #1

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

I am so excited for this collection. I remember when my kids were young and were obsessed with pirates. My husband and I also actually got married in Las Vegas at the Treasure Island Hotel. It seems pirates have always been a part of my adult life. I am so happy the obsession has continued to other families and kids. I love the photos I got from my co-worker Kami and her adorable Zander last Halloween. These photos are perfect for the  Pirates Collection from Echo Park and today’s Mid Week Mojo

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

I tried to keep this one simple to show off these super cute photos. Many of the stickers included in the collection kit are perfect for titles and sub titles on your layouts.

I love the bright colors on the patterned papers, I had to create a little tag to add a splash.

A big congrats to Becci Maines, you are last week’s winner!
