Monday Craft Madness

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.

Simple Stories Sn@p! Kits | Monday Craft Madness #19

There is a sort of movement sweeping through the Scrapbook world – Pocket Letters. I’ve been in awe for a while and finally decided to give it a try. I’ve seen friends participate and manufacturer blogs show them off. Today for Monday Craft Madness I decided to use Simple Stories Sn@p! Kit to make my own Pocket Letter….. So today’s theme is:

Pocket Letters

Create your own pocket letter or show us some you have received. Here’s what I created:

I chose the family kit and decided to create my pocket letter around my family and the mottos we live by (or at least try to). I chose this sheet protector from Simple Stories because it folds easily for mailing.

I love all of the pieces in these little kits, so many options for adding fun to your projects. Check out some close-ups of the cards.

I hope you decide to get some friends or family together and swap some pocket letters of your own.

My Mind’s Eye Just Sayin’ | Monday Craft Madness #18

I have a problem with my scrapbook supplies. One that I believe all of us scrappers face. I make projects and have bits and pieces left from my collections – TONS OF PIECES. While on Facebook the other day I was reading posts from a group of awesome ladies preparing to get together for a weekend of scrappy fun. They decided to get together to create their own embellishments with their scraps to have on hand for future projects. A giant lightbulb went off, what an awesome idea. So today for Monday Craft Madness I used the Just Sayin’ Collection from My Mind’s Eye to make some embellishments….. So today’s theme is:

Home-Made Embellishment

Pull out your left-over papers, embellishments and punches and make something fun. Here’s what I created:

I used bits of papers & embellishments, some basic kraft die cuts, and my scalloped circle and flower punches. Just layer the pieces you love and have left over from a kit and voila! many little fun embellishments to be used on future projects. Take a closer look.

We would LOVE to see what home-made embellishments you create.
