My Mind’s Eye Frightful | Monday Craft Madness #25

One of the hardest things for me each and every week is trying to decide what to create for the weekly Monday Craft Madness I usually lean towards cards, albums, tags…things like that. Today I wanted to go a little outside my own personal box and to my surprise I am happy with the end result. I used My Mind’s Eye’s Frightful Collection to make a wreath for my door. I kind of love it and love even more that I will have tons of papers & embellishments to still create cards, tags and more….. So today’s theme is:

Home Decor

Create something you can hang in your home and enjoy. Here’s what I created:

I added some tulle from my fabric stash to take away from the spookiness of the wreath. (Not that it’s really spooky) I love the chipboard pieces included in the kit, they are so sturdy and super sticky.

The enamel shapes in the form of bats – how could you not love that?

I can’t even handle how much I love that there are mustaches on the pumpkins and skeletons, brings a sense of unexpected whimsy.

My Mind’s Eye Joyous | Mid Week Mojo Lilac #4

Lilac – Week 4 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

I used to be one of those that would walk around the mall and be a tiny bit annoyed when I started seeing Christmas goodies in all of the stores in the middle of the summer. Then…I started working in the paper-crafting industry and each July my heart warmed seeing the new holiday collections. I start to have feelings of love, family, warmth, excitement (for presents). Today’s feature, My Mind’s Eye Christmas Collections brought up all of those feelings and I was excited to use it for today’s Mid Week Mojo

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

Normally I’m not a giant fan of glitter, but with this collection it seems to be in the perfect places. All of the colors and designs were great to add interest to this layout.

The decorative brads included in this kit are so great to add dimension to your projects. The word stickers that are included with the alphabet stickers are a great way to add those holiday sentiments.

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.
