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!

Fancy Pants Designs Everyday Circus | Mid Week Mojo Pansy #8

Pansy - Week 8 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

Is your home a circus every day? I know mine is. Between school, homework, football practice, work shifts for my kids, my work, housework and all of the reality TV I need to watch, it’s a wonder I get anything done.  Fancy Pant’s Design’s Everyday Circus help you celebrate the everyday circus in your life. As I was looking through the collection for today’s Mid Week Mojo I noticed all of the word stickers and how motivating they can be. I chose a cute picture from my co-worker and decided to create a layout full of all of the expressions that applies to Zach.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

I love the many many alpha stickers come in these collection kits, so many colors and sizes to choose from, along with the tab stickers, you can always get the date on your layout.

I love the die cut pieces created to match this collection. From banners and candy to clowns and circus animals, they are sure to fit into any project you are creating.

All of the word/phrase stickers included in the collection kit perfectly describe little Zach and the hopes and dreams we have for him.

Add the flair buttons and pop dots to some die cuts and you can have a circus of your own.

Teresa Collins You Are My Happy | Mid Week Mojo Pansy #7

Pansy - Week 7 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

What makes you happy? For me, this list is long…after family and friends I enjoy lazy days watching reality tv, playing candy crush and snacking on salty treats. For most of us family or friends makes us the happiest. This  You Are My Happy Collection from Teresa Collins is the perfect collection to create a layout showing exactly who makes you happy. For today’s Mid Week Mojo I found some awesome pics from a co-worker that show exactly how new baby Liam makes her so very happy.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

I love the pack of borders in this kit and just had to use one as my title, but in addition to the awesome borders are tons of other embellishments. From chipboard and brads to enamel dots and sequins, the perfect addition to your project is on hand.

The included cupcake toppers are for more than just cupcakes. I decided to use a couple as an embellishment on the page, I love how easy they are to work with and all the dimension they add.

Teresa Collins Daily Stories | Mid Week Mojo Pansy #6

Pansy - Week 6 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

It’s no secret that Teresa Collins has some of my favorite collections to craft with. Today I got to use Daily Stories for the  Mid Week Mojo I wanted to give myself a little challenge, so I decided to use a photo of a co-worker’s son even though this collection has tons of pink accents. It was a little bit of a challenge for me to choose patterns and colors that were a little less feminine. I am happy with the results and the little bit of pink on this little boy layout is kind of awesome.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

I am so in love with the pack of tags that Teresa Collins is including in her collections these days. They have great patterns and sayings and are the perfect size to fussy cut if necessary. There are three pieces of tags on this layout, after a little bit of fussy cutting I love the result.

I love using chipboard to add dimension to my projects, combined with the carstock stickers and a little bit of sequins, it makes for a great cluster of embellishments.

A big congrats to Anglea Asmus, you are last week’s winner!

We R Memory Keepers Jet Set | Mid Week Mojo Pansy #5

Pansy - Week 5 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

Today marks the last day of our month long guest sketches from the fabulous Brenda Smith I for one am sad to see her go, but I have loved each and every sketch she has created for us. This week she used We R Memory Keepers Jet Set Collection for her last Mid Week Mojo of July.

• • • • •

Good morning everyone. Today marks the last week of my guest sketching and I want to thank each of you for having me and for playing along. I have truly enjoyed myself and have loved seeing what you’ve all created. I must admit that today’s collection, WRMK’s Jet Set, is definitely a favorite of mine. You don’t often see purple in scrapbook supplies and I think the purple, blue, green, and orange combination is unexpectedly gorgeous. It’s perfect for masculine or feminine projects, travel and non-travel themed pages both. And because today is my last week, I’ve decided to provide two different sketches and layouts, Pansy 5A and Pansy 5B. Choose one or the other or do both for double the entries into this week’s prize drawing :)

First, Pansy 5A:



And my layout: 


My lovely friend Melissa took this (auto-timed) picture of us while we were visiting a garden in downtown SLC during last year’s Scrapbook Steals crop. I’ve been waiting for the perfect time to scrap it and when I saw these papers and embellishments, I knew it was time. I love all the globe-themed embellishments.



I love how the stickers have a slight dimension and texture to them.

My second sketch, Pansy 5B:



And my layout:



A ton of layering is not usually my style but there are so many fun patterned papers in this collection that I couldn’t let any go to waste. I enjoyed putting a bunch of patterns together to get a graphic punch without feeling like the page was overwhelmed.



I cut out some tags from a patterned paper for embellishments and I think it turned out perfectly. And aren’t those chipboard alphas fabulous?!

As always, I’m looking forward to seeing your creations. Thanks again for having me this month!

-Brenda
