Kaisercraft Mint Twist Projects | Monday Craft Madness #28

I’m not sure if it’s the time of year; end of summer, getting kids ready for school etc., but I seem to have lost my mojo.  Today’s  Monday Craft Madness couldn’t have come at a better time. The best thing for me to try to get back my mojo is to follow instructions and create something someone else created. The  Mint Twist Project Kits from Kaisercraft  have three different projects you can make….. So today’s theme is:

Follow

Create something from a kit, with instructions, an online tutorial or even one of our Mid Week Mojos. I promise if you aren’t feeling creative, this will totally help! Here’s what I created:

I can’t really take any credit for how this project looks, I followed the directions almost exactly. I just added a little bit of glitter and other stickers. I love that I was able to sit down and finish an entire mini album project in less than an hour. Check out some close ups:

I do love the little bits of pink in this collection. It seems to bring the traditional Christmas to another level of happy.

My Mind’s Eye My Story | Monday Craft Madness #26

This year has been a year of reflection for me. I’ve been wanting to create a place to write down the lessons I’ve learned about myself and life and the NEW My Story Collection from My Mind’s Eye  fis the perfect collection to start a journal. So for today’s Monday Craft Madness I decided to start a sort of mini album/journal to jot down all of the lessons I have learned this year. So today’s theme is:

Reflection

Create something about something you have learned about yourself, about life or about someone else. Here’s what I created:

I just used some 6″ x 8″ chipboard pieces, my cropadile and some binder rings. This way I can add to the book as the years go on. Check out some of the pages…

I love the modern color scheme with a bit of vintage flair in this collection. The touches of gold just brings a happy feminine sense as well.

Pink Paislee Bella Rouge | Monday Craft Madness #22

When I first saw the Bella Rouge collection I sort of fell in love right away. Not because of the pink or the shiny of it all, but because of the theme. All of the sayings and feelings this collection evokes is one of inspiration. My oldest daughter is about to turn 20 (I know I CAN’T be that old!) and finding presents for her is harder and harder. I also feel a huge responsibility to hurry and teach her everything I haven’t yet before she really grows up and moves out. So today for Monday Craft Madness I decided to use the Bella Rouge Collection to make a little book I can give her to hopefully remind her how awesome she is….. So today’s theme is:

Inspiration

Create something inspirational for yourself or someone else. Here’s what I created:

While the paper designs in this collection are awesome, I decided to just use the 4×4 Journal Cards and Embellishments. All of the cards had great designs and/or awesome sayings that I want to impart to my oldest child. Check out the pages.

October Afternoon Summertime | Monday Craft Madness #21

The season it upon us, the time that rewards for surviving all of the tortuous months of winter. It’s summertime! Celebrate summer with us and  October Afternoon’s New Summertime Collection. tAs I am looking forward to the summer months with my kids home from school, we are planning a trip to go see some concerts. Today for Monday Craft Madness I decided to make a mini album before we go on the road trip in hopes I will actually put photos in it when we get home….. So today’s theme is:

Mini Album

Create a mini album for an event in your life. There is such a sense of completion when you do a mini album. Here’s what I created:

The bright and sunny colors and patterns in this collection along with the cheery images are a perfect base for our impending good time.

I always love the nostalgic images that are included in October Afternoon’s collections. The puffy stickers they include now are so cute. Do you see that cloud? It’s puffy!

The only thing I didn’t like about this project is that this particular mini album was too small to use all the paper designs. I may need to create a second album if we have as much fun as I think we will.  Create a mini album BEFORE a trip or event, then after you can easily put in the pictures and re-live all the fun right after your trip.

Heidi Swapp Mixed Media | Monday Craft Madness #17

I have always loved making mini albums. It’s such a sense of accomplishment to start and finish a project. I was so excited about today’s steal. I love Heidi Swapp and the products she creates. I wished I had the guts to use more mixed media products like modeling paste, paint and ink on my projects, but I am not there just yet. Hopefully some day. Today for Monday Craft Madness I used Heidi Swapp Mixed Media to make a fun 1st Birthday Mini Album for the adorable Jovi….. So today’s theme is:

Mini Albums

Create something into a mini album or share your favorite. Here’s what I created:

I love the 6×8 canvas album so much. It has an awesome magnetic closure to keep your creation safe. The cover of the album is great to decorate or alter to your heart’s content.

I used the 3×4 Mini Album Kit to add a little extra photo to the album, I just couldn’t resistethat giant smile.

I wish I had been there to see Jovi crawl up to here cake and start enjoying it. You only have a first birthday once.

The 3×4 glitter cards are great to add to your album to add a little interest.

The 6×6 paper pack can be used as-is or altered with ink or paint. I love how it’s die cut already and you can have a color or pattern show through.

The 4×6 sheet protectors are great for just adding your pics to your album or you can use one of the sections for more decoration.

Fabulous is the best way to describe little Jovi and the joy she brings to this world.
