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.

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!

My Mind’s Eye Just Sayin’ | Monday Craft Madness #34

As I was trying to think of what to make with  My Mind’s Eye Just Sayin’  I came across a blog post from My Mind’s eye and a project created by the wonderful Amber Packer. She used this collection to create a full alphabet wall decoration. (Check it out here) I loved how the papers looked on the letters so today for Monday Craft Madness I decided to do something similar. I love creating things for co-workers and one of our staff recently had a baby girl and I thought this collection would be perfect for the little princess…… So today’s theme is:

Princess

Create something with a princess theme, about your little princess or for a princess in your life. Here’s what I created:

I love the bold glitter (and it didn’t get all over my craft space!) and the dark and pink colors of this collection. The hints of blue throughout the collection are a great contrast. Check out the letters up close.

It took less than an hour to cover all of the letters and add some embellishments for this project.  Go to your craft store, pick out your favorite letters and make something fun.

My Mind’s Eye Jubilee | Mid Week Mojo Gardenia #1

Gardenia- Week 1 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

I was thinking the other day, as I am sure we all do, that my kids have grown up way too fast. When we scheduled My Mind’s Eye Jubilee as our steal today, I thought it was the perfect collection to do a tribute layout to my kids. Finding these photos of my kids about 10 years ago just made me smile. I decided to use them for today’s Mid Week Mojo I could see their future in their eyes in these photos and I love the people they have all become.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

I decided I wanted to use the 3×4 journal cards in this collection for the background.  I chose a few of my favorites and then filed in the holes with some of the fabulous patterned papers. As usual, the die cuts in the mixed bag and the adhesive chipboard pieces are perfect for embellishing your projects.

When I saw the journaling card that said, “this is the good stuff” my kids were the first thing that came to my mind. They are really the good stuff that my world revolves around.

This patterned paper also already contained a good quote. I have always wanted to teach my kids to find an adventure and live with no regrets. I think they have grown into just those people; courageous, adventurous,  and strong.

My Mind’s Eye Now & Then Dorothy and Mildred | Mid Week Mojo Pansy #9

Pansy – Week 9 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

Some things always make me nostalgic and think of my grandparents. Home made ice cream and water skiing remind me of my grandparents on my mother’s side. When I see peonies blooming in a well manicured garden reminds me of my grandmother on my father’s side.  My Mind’s Eye Now & Then Dorothy and Mildred is so beautiful with the flowers and vintage feel, I just had to find a photo of my grandma for today’s Mid Week Mojo

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

As always, I love all of the embellishments that My Mind’s Eye has to offer, from chipboard pieces to cardstock stickers, decorative brads to enamel dots, it’s easy to find what you may be looking for.

I wanted to use some of the 3×4 cards included in the mega kit, most of them are for current memory making, which is awesome but I loved the snapshots card for this layout.

The word, label and alpha stickers always have just the right sentiment for any project you are working on.

The flair buttons are cool. Not just pieces to add to a paper-crafting project, they actually have a pin background so we can wear them like the broaches my grandma used to wear.

A big congrats to Kim Cheladyn, you are last week’s winner!
