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.

My Mind’s Eye Cut & Paste | Monday Craft Madness #14

I am usually a bit of a procrastinator, ask anyone. This year I wanted to get a jump on Mother’s Day cards. With all of the moms, mother-in-laws, and awesome women in our lives, we seem to need dozens of cards each year. Today for Monday Craft Madness I used My Mind’s Eye Cut & Paste to make some of the cards I am going to need this year….. So today’s theme is:

Cards

Create a card or show us your favorite cards.. Here’s what I created:

The colors and theme of the Adorbs collection matched perfectly with the sentiments I want to send to all of my mothers. The included 4×6 cards make great bases for 5×7 cards. Here are some close-ups.

My Mind’s Eye Now & Then | Monday Craft Madness #7

The possibilities are endless with today’s collection. The kit is full of so many different and wonderful embellishments, it was difficult to decide on just ONE project. I wanted to make so many different things, and I still will. I decided to start with something basic for today’s Monday Craft Madness,where I used My Mind’s Eye Now & Then Izzy Collection to make some fun cards….. So today’s theme is:

Cards

Create some cards to keep in your stash, to send to someone you love, or to leave a note for someone in your family. Here’s what I created:

It is nice to have cards already made on hand, but is hard to find time to create them. So, we have supplied some sketches this week to hopefully help out in the creative process.

Create a card from one of these sketches or create your own. Here are some  close ups of the cards and that show just how fantastic and diverse the embellishments are from the Now & Then Izzy Collection.

Amy Tangerine Cut & Paste | Monday Craft Madness #4

I tend to scrapbook by theme; events, holidays, a certain child. Most collections make that easy. The Cut & Paste Collection from Amy Tangerine is eclectic, has multiple colors and themes, and is quite honestly fantastic. Today for Monday Craft Madness I thought this collection would be great to make different cards. So today’s theme is:

Cards

I could have kept going and making dozens more cards with this collection all different. Show us some cards you have made! Here’s what I created:

Each sheet of paper in this magical collection is perfect for its own card. The front and back of the paper created this Love card.

I mixed two of the papers to create this invitation to a barbecue. Now I want the snow to go away so I can break out my barbecue.

The sticker book included in the embellishment kit is great to add the extra bits to each of the cards.

The cut apart paper in the collection is perfect for pocket-style scrapbooking, but I also find them great for cardmaking.
