Due to some illness we have a recycled  Mid Week Mojo of sorts. Best thing about that is we get to see our friend and fan Brenda Smith  guest sketching today and showing off her amazing talent again! For those of you who may have tried this sketch in the past, I can’t wait to see what you come up with this time!

A couple months ago, I came across some photos of My Mind’s Eye’s Market Street collection. When I saw all the gold foil accents to the papers, I was instantly in love. Imagine my giddiness when I found out I would get to work with this gorgeous paper for today’s Mid Week Mojo  I used the Ashbury Heights collection. The colors were so sunny and bright, not to mention that my three favorite colors are in this collection: aqua, coral, and gold! I had some pictures from my daughter’s recent 4th birthday that I knew would fit the color scheme perfectly.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

I decided to use stars instead of the circles and layered and stitched them to give them a little dimensional effect.
There was so much good stuff in this collection that I couldn’t stop at just a layout. I also made a Project Life page using the 3×4 cards, the 6×6 pad, the chipboard buttons and accents, enamel dots, and cardstock stickers. The 3×4 cards made this spread come together so easily.
I was inspired when I saw the Ready to Frame Art Prints with gold foil accents and decided I need to make a wall hanging. I used the print with 9 circles laid out in a grid and took a heart punch and layered multiple hearts and then stitched. To finish it off, I added a flair button to the gold foil circle.
I really enjoyed working with this paper and I can almost guarantee that you will not regret buying this stuff. It is SO much prettier in person. If you would like to find out more about me, please come check out my Instagram at or my blog at . Thank you so much for having me as your MWM hostess today! I look forward to seeing what you all create!

My Mind’s Eye Sleigh Bells Ring | Mid Week Mojo Petunia #5

Petunia – Week 5 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

I am in love with this season. I can’t get enough. I love the music, the decorations and yes the presents. I find some favorite Holiday collections each year and inevitably  My Mind’s Eye Christmas Collections Tare included on that favorite list. This year they created two very unique collections and I was excited to use one as today’s Mid Week Mojo Sleigh Bells Ring has a great look with traditional colors with a black background.

Here is the layout:

I saw a project using this collection on a blog where they used squares of the patterns to create a tree for a mini album cover. I loved the idea and lifted it a little but but used strips instead of squares.

Here is the sketch:

The paper bows included in this collection are perfect for gift wrapping, but I loved the idea of using it as my tree topper on this layout. I am hoping one day this layout finds itself hanging on a wall instead of in a book.

I love this magical picture of Mason. It shows the joy and magic of the season in one photo. I wish we could all still feel this every day of the year. The alphabet sticker sheets included in this kit also have all of the holiday words you can imagine. I can’t get enough of them.

Adding the brads to create ornaments on my tree adds a little extra dimension.

A big congrats to Stephanie UScrap, you are last week’s winner!

My Mind’s Eye Kate & Co. | Mid Week Mojo Petunia #2

Petunia – Week 2 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

This seems to be the busiest time of year for me and I suspect for everyone out there. With that in mind we have decided to recycle an existing Mid Week Mojo. So enjoy seeing photos of my son playing football once again.  My Mind’s Eye Kate & Co was the perfect collection for today’s Mid Week Mojo and these photos of my son playing football. Not only is the color palette more masculine, but they match the green of my son’s uniform to the tee. This year’s football season again ended with a little bit of heartbreak, but the team played their hearts out.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

I love how My Mind’s Eye always includes such great chipboard accessories. They are so easy to layer and since they are self-adhesive, adding them to a project is a piece of cake.

One of the patterned papers includes journaling cards on one side. Easy to trim out and create your journaling blocks.

Creating banners is super easy with the included layered and chipboard stickers.

Who says flowers are only for girls?

A big congrats to  Margaret Roberts,  you are last week’s winner!
