October Afternoon Travel Girl | Monday Craft Madness #7

Last September my girls and I took a crazy weekend road trip. We drove from Salt Lake City, UT to Pasadena, CA to the Rose Bowl to see 5 Seconds of Summer and One Direction in concert. Both of my girls are newly adult and I knew it could be one of the last crazy fun things we could do together before they head out of the nest and create lives of their own. We had a spectacular time, almost no sleep, and memories that can last a lifetime. I promised them I wouldn’t show photos of them in tears watching the show, but I wanted to create something that we could store our memories in. So today for Monday Craft Madness I used October Afternoon’s Travel Girl Collection to make a memory box we can store some of the trinkets from our trip…. So today’s theme is:

Altered Memory Keeping

Create something that preserves a memory, but not a layout or album. Maybe create a canvas, a card, or a box. Here’s what I created:

It is so important to save your memories, not just on your phone or computer. This was one of those trips I never want to forget.

I love the eclectic mix of patterns in this collection. The papers along with the chipboard, doo-dads, pennants and stickers can create a wonderfully nostalgic place to keep those mementos.

So go out, create those memories and then create a place to save them.

Bo Bunny Isabella | Monday Craft Madness #6

Some days you really want to do something crafty, but either don’t have much time or much energy to create a big project. Card-making is a great way to get a little crafty without a huge time commitment. So today for Monday Craft Madness I used Bo Bunny’s Isabella Collection to make a few cards. Bo Bunny’s collections are always so great. There are neutral papers, bright papers, bold papers and traditional designs like dots or stripes along with more designer papers. A perfect compilation of color and design for card-making….. So today’s theme is:

Cards

Create some cards that you love, I flipped through a card-making magazine from Scrapbook and Cards Today and altered a few of my favorite looks. Here’s what I created:

Bo Bunny’s collection is always full of fun embellishments and bold colors. While I am not always a super fan of pink, I am kind of in love with how these cards turned out. Check out some close ups.

Simple Stories Life Documented Planner | Monday Craft Madness #5

Today for Monday Craft Madness we are featuring a special steal. We have been waiting for the used Simple Stories Life Documented Planner Series for a while now. It’s finally here and so worth the wait. For all of you creative planner lovers out there, this series finally has everything you could need in one system. Plan your days, your weeks, your months, you life and your crafting. One of the buyers here at Steals.com took the planner for a test run and fell in love. Check out her planner.

Kerianne is a buyer for BabySteals.com, a teacher, a mom and wife. Needless to say her schedule is full. The happy look on her face from using this planner system made me smile.

I love how she used the notes page to write down some goals, favorite quotes and just things she wants to concentrate on during the month. This planner is so much more than a carpool schedule.

Go check out Simple Stories’ Blog Here to find more ways to use this awesome planner.

So today we don’t have a traditional Monday Craft Madness Theme , we hope we have helped inspire you a little to get a little more organized.  I know I need that in my life.

Fancy Pants Be. Loved. | Monday Craft Madness #4

It’s the season of love these days and I can’t seem to get enough of Valentine’s themed products. I always want to create something for the hubby, but most years I run out of time. I was super excited that today’s collection is a Valentine’s collection. Today for Monday Craft Madness I used Be. Loved. from Fancy Pants to make a canvas for the hubby….. So today’s theme is:

Love

Create something about someone (or something) you love, for someone you love or because you love. Here’s what I created:

I saw a similar project when I was visiting the Doodlebug Design offices back during Halloween and thought it would be great to create a heart for Valentine’s Day.

I chose some of the neutral gray designs to create part of my heart and to serve as a background.

I purchased a couple of small wooden hearts from a local craft store that I covered with some of the pattern papers. I loved the dimension it added to the project.

I filled in the rest of my heart with the fantastic embellishments included in this kit. Along with a couple of photos of the hubby I really love how it turned out. Here’s hoping the hubby likes it just as much.

Authentique Accomplished | Monday Craft Madness #1

It’s a new year and we as a family are looking forward to some exciting things. My oldest will no longer be a teen, my youngest will turn 16 and my middle is graduating high school. Needless to say high school has been a challenge for my Lizzie and we are so excited and proud of her every day accomplishments.  Accomplished by Authentique Paper  is a great collection that helps celebrate not only your big accomplishments, but your every day accomplishments. So today for Monday Craft Madness I decided to create a little book about all the things I have seen Lizzie accomplish over the past four years, hopefully it will help her see just how proud of her we are….. So today’s theme is:

Mini Journal Album

Create either a mini album or a mini journal album for someone you love. Here’s what I created:

 

I started with her 9th grade year, which is still in Junior High for us. She got to ‘graduate’ from 9th grade and loved it.

I left spots for photos as all of her favorite pics of her and her friends are on her phone, hopefully we can get some printed.

We had a rough time Lizzie’s sophomore year and she came through it all and we are so proud of her.

I love the idea of giving her notes for each year of her high school career, hopefully she will look back on this and love it as much as we love her.

I need to add one more year to this album as she finishes her high school career in a few months I can imagine myself crying as I write that one.
