Doodlebug Design Halloween | Monday Craft Madness #36

We have been enjoying our Annual Retreat the past few days (blog post about all the fun to come) and with all of the planning, prepping and partying I procrastinated in getting today’s project done.  I have to say a huge thank you to Van Nugyen, Erin Colby, Brenda Smith and Erin Shultz for spending the other night in my room at the retreat creating this project for me.  I love Doodlebug Design Halloween Collections  The cute, clean designs just remind me of Halloween when my kids were young.  In trying to reminisce those days I thoughf of this project, but luckily my friends and loyal ScrapbookSteals Fans actually did the creating for today’s Monday Craft Madness .… So today’s theme is:

Decor

Create something to display or show us your favorite. Here’s what I (they) created:

I love these printer trays for creating holiday decorations. They are a quick and easy way to create something fun and be able to see your creation all at the same time.  Here are some close ups:

The spider sticker and a pop dot makes a cute and scary-ish display. And those monster doodlepops, can they be any cuter?

Using the pattern papers and a little fussy cutting creates awesome little sections as well.

 

 

Some of the patterned papers that have cut out cards fit more than perfectly on their own in one of the sections.

This project turned out so cute, I just love our ScrapbookSteals fans, well family really. We are blessed here at Steals.com to call you all friends.

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 Just Sayin’ | Monday Craft Madness #34

As I was trying to think of what to make with  My Mind’s Eye Just Sayin’  I came across a blog post from My Mind’s eye and a project created by the wonderful Amber Packer. She used this collection to create a full alphabet wall decoration. (Check it out here) I loved how the papers looked on the letters so today for Monday Craft Madness I decided to do something similar. I love creating things for co-workers and one of our staff recently had a baby girl and I thought this collection would be perfect for the little princess…… So today’s theme is:

Princess

Create something with a princess theme, about your little princess or for a princess in your life. Here’s what I created:

I love the bold glitter (and it didn’t get all over my craft space!) and the dark and pink colors of this collection. The hints of blue throughout the collection are a great contrast. Check out the letters up close.

It took less than an hour to cover all of the letters and add some embellishments for this project.  Go to your craft store, pick out your favorite letters and make something fun.

Simple Stories Cozy Christmas | Monday Craft Madness #33

While all of Simple Stories’ collections are perfect for preserving memories, both in the traditional 12×12 format and the pocket page style, I noticed something fun about  Simple Stories Cozy Christmas  The pages, cards and other embellishments are perfect of other projects. One of my co-workers, Kerianne, has an adorable son, Mason. If you frequent any of the Steals.com websites you have probably seen his happy face. I decided to help him a little bit with his letter to Santa for this year. I can’t imagine Santa refusing Mason’s requests if he receives an entire mini album. So for today’s Monday Craft Madness I created a mini album letter to Santa…..  today’s theme is:

Mini Albums

Create an interesting twist on a mini album, like a letter to someone you love. Here’s what I created:

I love how the 6×8 pages included in this collection are all sorts of sizes and shapes. It offers a kinds of dimension and texture when you first look at the album. I added a few of the bits and pieces die cuts and enamel dots to the cover.

We figured a photo of mason will help santa remember who he is.

The chipboard pieces match up with the designs beautifully.

The die cut pages add a little bit of interest as you thumb through the album.

We used one of the 3×4 journaling cards for Mason’s present request list.

 

Santa can also keep track of where Mason will be all through December, just so they don’t miss each other.

And finally, Mason’s letter to Santa. It’s important to list all of the good things you have done throughout the year to get on Santa’s good side.

There’s room in this album to add more items, we are going to add lists from other members of Mason’s family. I just love the idea of sending a letter to someone you love in a mini album format. All of the care and love can flow through your creativity.

Teresa Collins Designs Masquerade Party | Monday Craft Madness #32

I realized that we have not done a color challenge in quite a long time. I normally look to projects to be a certain type of project rather than a certain color, but I have an awesome friend who’s favorite color is orange, so in honor of  her, the color of the day is Orange. Today we are reviewing a project I made last year with Teresa Collins’ Masquerade Party ….. Remember today’s theme is:

Orange

Create something with orange, or about a favorite orange thing, or even about oranges. Here’s what I created:

I was able to make this mini album using the papers from this collection as well as the file folders, you could also use the treat bags as pages.

All of  the chipboard pieces, stickers and die cuts make for easy embellishing.

I love creating things earlier than you need them, I feel so accomplished like I actually finished something.

A little bit of ribbon and some rings and ta-da and album made in a snap. Check out the rest of the pages:
