Monday Craft Madness

My Mind’s Eye Frightful | Monday Craft Madness #25

One of the hardest things for me each and every week is trying to decide what to create for the weekly Monday Craft Madness I usually lean towards cards, albums, tags…things like that. Today I wanted to go a little outside my own personal box and to my surprise I am happy with the end result. I used My Mind’s Eye’s Frightful Collection to make a wreath for my door. I kind of love it and love even more that I will have tons of papers & embellishments to still create cards, tags and more….. So today’s theme is:

Home Decor

Create something you can hang in your home and enjoy. Here’s what I created:

I added some tulle from my fabric stash to take away from the spookiness of the wreath. (Not that it’s really spooky) I love the chipboard pieces included in the kit, they are so sturdy and super sticky.

The enamel shapes in the form of bats – how could you not love that?

I can’t even handle how much I love that there are mustaches on the pumpkins and skeletons, brings a sense of unexpected whimsy.

Fancy Pants Christmas Collections | Monday Craft Madness #23

Can you believe it? Christams is just 23 weeks away!  Normally I am the queen of procrastination but I decided to use Today’s Steal Fancy Pants Christmas Collections to get started on my Christmas cards. So today’s Monday Craft Madness theme is:

Cards

Create some cards to use now or in the future. Finishing a set brings such a sense of accomplishment. Here’s what I created:

I used the Oh Deer collection kit and I LOVE how many different papers were included.  Traditional looking holiday papers as well as awesome solids and less-holilday-like patterns. You can really use much of this collection for just about any project.

Check out some close ups of the cards, I hope you will be inspired to create some cards of your own.

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.
