We R Memory Keepers It Factor | Monday Craft Madness #40

When we get a collection to feature on ScrapbookSteals.com one of my favorite things to do is scour the internet trying to see what brilliant crafters have done with the product. The process always simultaneously inspires me and makes me feel lame because they are always better than I can do. When I was looking at We R Memory Keepers’ It Factor I loved all of the really cool embellishments including wooden die cuts, clear acrylic stickers and plastic alphabet blocks. I found an awesome blog post over on the We R Blog by their design team member Aly Dosdall that shows off these awesome embellishments and what you can do to them. So today’s for Monday Craft Madness theme is:

Home-Made Embellishments

Create or alter your own embellishments. Layer stickers, cut die cuts out of paper, or just alter some of your favorites. Check out the layout Aly created:

The layout of Aly’s daughter’s new glasses is bright and fun, but look a little closer at all of the home made embellishments. With the “teal trunk” paper from the collection she used her circle cutter to make die cuts.

She then decided to fancy up the acrylic stickers to help them stand out a little more by using a coloring tool and permanent ink.

Aly also used the positive and negative alphabet blocks for her title. I love the eclectic look these letters add to the layout.

Teresa Collins Something Wonderful | Monday Craft Madness #39

We all love paper collections that have a specific theme. Birthday, Halloween or Christmas are some of my favorites. Sometimes it’s great to find a collection without a specific theme, one you can use for any project. Today for Monday Craft Madness I used Teresa Collins Something Wonderful to make a mini album to celebrate all of the wonderful things in our lives….. So today’s theme is:

Mini Album

Create something a mini album or a project about the wonderful things in your life. Here’s what I created:

I used two pieces of chipboard for the front and back covers and then just used my handy scoring tool and some cardstock to create the binding for this album.

 

I tried to leave some space for photos and journaling in this album so I can add things as we go along through this crazy life.

This collection was created without a specific theme in mind, just something that celebrates the wonderfulness in each of our lives. Hopefully we can all find something wonderful to celebrate.

October Afternoon Eggnog | Monday Craft Madness #38

Christmas is just around the corner (say it isn’t so) and in my attempt to get into the holiday spirit I decided to create some things that made me smile. We are all looking for great tags during the holiday season, sometimes we have to create our own. The October Afternoon Eggnog Collection is a great nostalgic collection with some modern twists.  Today’s Monday Craft Madness theme is:

Tags

Create a tag or show us one of your favorite tags. Here’s what I created:

I am kind of in love with the puffy stickers. It brought me right back to my elementary school days when I would trade them with my friends. The traditional October Afternoon elements were great to add to these tags. The die cuts, stickers and enamel shapes, along with my favorite pop dots, made the tags super easy. Check out some close ups.

Simple Stories Legacy | Monday Craft Madness #37

I love the sentiment of today’s steal.  Simple Stories Legacy Collection has a beautiful sentiment of looking to your past and your family. I fell in love with the look of the collection and the quotes included. The whole collection reminded me of how my grandma, aunts and cousins all got together to make quilts for everyone’s wedding showers. So today for Monday Craft Madness I created a little wall hanging that reminded me of those quilting days ….. So today’s theme is:

Memory

Create something that celebrates a favorite memory of yours. Here’s what I created:

I found an 8×10 frame at a local craft store on clearance for about a dollar. I turned it into a little shadow box and I can change the inside however often I would like. It’s hard these days to connect our children to their family’s past. I think it’s important. Hopefully this is a little reminder and I can work harder on that.  Check out some close ups of the project. As usual I am in love with my pop dots.

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.
