Monday Card Madness

Fancy Pants Designs Everyday Circus | Monday Craft Madness #16

Today for Monday Craft Madness  we are excited to bring some projects from Laurel Seabrook, member of Fancy Pants’ Design Team she used Everyday Circus to make some awesome cards. I just fell in love with them when I saw them…. So today’s theme is:

Cards

Create some fun cards or show us some of your favorites. Here’s what Laurel created:

I love how she used the “Posters” 12×12 patterned paper as her base for the cards.  Adding some other papers and embellishments and a little bit of stitching she created some awesome circus-themed cards.

Check out some close-ups of each card. I love how she used the tickets to add a little pizzaz to the cards.

Bo Bunny Isabella | Monday Craft Madness #6

Some days you really want to do something crafty, but either don’t have much time or much energy to create a big project. Card-making is a great way to get a little crafty without a huge time commitment. So today for Monday Craft Madness I used Bo Bunny’s Isabella Collection to make a few cards. Bo Bunny’s collections are always so great. There are neutral papers, bright papers, bold papers and traditional designs like dots or stripes along with more designer papers. A perfect compilation of color and design for card-making….. So today’s theme is:

Cards

Create some cards that you love, I flipped through a card-making magazine from Scrapbook and Cards Today and altered a few of my favorite looks. Here’s what I created:

Bo Bunny’s collection is always full of fun embellishments and bold colors. While I am not always a super fan of pink, I am kind of in love with how these cards turned out. Check out some close ups.

So today’s theme is:

Party

When Melodee asked me to come play along with Monday Craft Madness I was honored and excited to play with KaiserCraft’s Pop Collection. I do love a good party, and making party decor has been a past time since I can remember. As a kid I made paper chains, now I mostly focus on banners like the one I have for you today.

There were so many fun prints that I wanted to include so I took out my Hazel & Ruby birthday masks, and used them as templates to cut out fun shapes for the banners.

I had the individual banners all but done and realized that the patterns had gotten a little out of control, so I went back and painted some silver and blacks paints so that the letters would really stand out.

Finally, I busted out the eyelets and twine to create a way to hang it. I mean, how can you make party decor without twine? I know that I can’t.

Even with all that pattern mixing I still had paper leftover so I made a 12×12 layout.

Again, I wanted to make sure I was really using the patterns and stickers so I cut everything into triangles and started layering them up.

Adding some Glossy Accents to layered stickers really made those elements of the page pop more.

And then I couldn’t help myself, I added in a bunch of Stickles and enamel dots to make the page that much more festive.

I hope you’re as inspired by this paper as I was! And thanks to Steals for letting me come and be a guest designer again.

Bo Bunny Snow Day | Monday Craft Madness #35

I know a lot of us out there are mourning the end of summer, but I for one am totally excited. My favorite time of year is Autumn changing in to Winter. I love it when it snows, but just a little. I can feel it coming here in Utah and I am excited. Today for Monday Craft Madness I used Bo Bunny Snow Day to create some cards to have on hand to help me celebrate everything I love about winter ….. So today’s theme is:

Cards

Create some cards to have on hand to celebrate your favorite season. Here’s what I created:

Bo Bunny always has such great patterns inside of patterns on their papers. You would think the rich colors and designs are enough, but there are also swirls and florals in the corners and down the sides.  I’t just one of my favorite things about Bo Bunny.

My other favorite thing about Bo Bunny is hands down their embellishments. So many to choose from, you can’t choose just one. Brads & chipboard to jewels & trinkets and everything in between; you just can’t go wrong with a collection from Bo Bunny. Here are some close ups:

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

When July comes around everywhere we go we start seeing holiday decorations. They used to bother me, making me feel guilty for not having started my holiday planning yet. Over the past couple of years I have a new philosophy; if you can’t beat them, join them. So today for Monday Craft Madness I used My Mind’s Eye New Joyous Collection to start making my Christmas cards….. So today’s theme is:

Cards

Create some cards and show us your favorites. Here’s what I created:

I love how this collection feels so traditional, but isn’t really. The bold reds and blues have a splash of green, usually you see the traditional red and green with some splashes of other colors. This was fun to work with. The cardstock stickers included in the collection kit make for quick cards.

Included in this collection is a package of pre-made, die cut tags. Super easy to just add a quick bit of twine and embellishment and voila, card all done.

I mentioned how much I loved the blues in this collection, those papers along with the red glittered papers in this collection add that little extra pizzazz to your cards and other projects.  The decorative brads are also a beautiful, easy embellishment to add to your creation.

The red chevron is my favorite piece in this collection. Here I used more of the tags to create the sentiments. Add some word stickers and pop dots and there is a little extra touch.

Check out some more close ups of the cards and hopefully they will inspire you to start working on your holiday projects too.
