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!

Tis the Season around here and we are getting really excited.  Even more exciting is that this week we have the fabulous Heather Conklin sharing a layout she created with Authentique Paper’s Believe Collection for today’s Mid Week Mojo This collection has so many wonderful designs, I love how Heather used as many as possible by making stripes out of the papers.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

The cardstock stickers in this collection, as with all of Authentique’s collections are thick and wonderful, perfect for titles and embellishments alike.

Since this is such a beautiful collection I wanted to share a couple more projects Heather made with this collection. Click through to her blog to see a closer look and a step-by-step to the beautiful wall art.

Simple Stories DIY | Mid Week Mojo Petunia #3

Petunia – Week 3 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

I came to a realization a few weeks ago, almost six weeks ago to be exact. I am finally embracing the fact that I am a great aunt. The first time I became a great aunt was actually 15 years ago, but I always thought it made me sound old so I pretended I was just an aunt. Just over a month ago, I became a great aunt for the 7th time when awesome little Xander came into our family. I just couldn’t resist creating a layout to honor this little peanut. the Simple Stories DIY Collection was perfect to use for today’s  Mid Week Mojo and this picture of Xander. The neutral pieces with the bright pops of color help make this photo shine.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

I love how all of the bases are so neutral. With graph, notebook, or type card bases and kraft paper embellishments you could add any of your favorite embellishments. The burlap stickers add great texture while the bright colors keep your interest.

The letter stickers are awesome, so many colors to choose from. The photo stickers are great to add on your photos or your journaling cards.

I probably would have used this lower card as my journaling card, however since this baby isn’t actually mine I decided to just fancy it up a little bit.

While this product is definitely perfect for your pocket-style layouts, I love to use them on a traditional 12×12 as well.

A big congrats to Jessica Laureno, 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!
