Doodlebug Designs Spring & Easter | Mid Week Mojo Daffodil #8

Daffodil – Week 8 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

As we all sit here wishing our winters would end and our spring would begin, looking at the  Doodlebug Design Spring & Easter Kits definitely helped. EThe bright and happy colors and designs Doodlebug is known for comes out in spades with these collections. For today’s  Mid Week Mojo I decided to use a little bit from each kit since the collections always mix and match. I love how they blended together so well to celebrate welcoming a baby girl into the Robbins family.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

Springtime is a great celebration of new flowers, new trees and new gardens. It’s also a great color palette to celebrate a new birth. While these collections were made more for spring and Easter, I love how we could highlight baby girl Robbins. Check out some close ups of the layout elements.

Echo Park Jack & Jill | Mid Week Mojo Daffodil #4

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

I got to see a bunch of new collections at the Craft & Hobby Association Trade Show last month in Anaheim. Some were great, some not so much, but this  Echo Park Jack & Jill -Boy collection was definitely one of the favorites of the show. The mix of nostalgic icons with traditional boy colors made creating today’s Mid Week Mojo super fun. I remember when I saw this collection the first photo I imagined was this cute picture of Zach with his adorable suspenders and hat.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

Echo Park has many of their traditional awesome embellishments with this collection; stickers, chipboard, enamel dots. They have now ventured into the land of ephemera packs where you find tons of awesome die cuts for your projects. I also love the rich colors included in this collection. I wanted to keep scrapping, but had to finally go to bed. Check out some close ups of this layout:

Fancy Pants True Friend | Mid Week Mojo Daffodil #3

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

When I first saw the True Friend Collection from Fancy Pants long before we had it here on ScrapbookSteals.com, I kept seeing images of my good friends I have met through working here. Friends from near and far I have had the pleasure of meeting through our community here at Steals.com. Each one has touched my life in one way or another, but for today’s Mid Week Mojo I wanted to honor one of my favorites. She has impacted me so much and one day I hope to grow up to be just like her – I love you, my dear Sheryl. This is the perfect color scheme and collection to honor my friendship with this wonderful woman.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

The happy colors of this collection remind me of Sheryl so much. She has such a zest for life and so much love in her heart I hope every day I can have a little of what she has.

Sometimes we all need to know we are loved, I know I do. I also know that I join many many of our Scrappy Sisters in the love we have for Sheryl.

The envelopes and file folders in this collection are perfect for a little tag with some hidden journaling.

And oh those trees…I can handle how much I love them. So cute and so much texture and dimension, Fancy Pants has knocked it out of the park with those.

Here’s hoping we all can find someone in our lives that is an inspiration to us. Find that someone for you and let them know. Sheryl, I adore you and you inspire me each and every day!

Kaisercraft Blue Bay | Mid Week Mojo Daffodil #2

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

The calming feeling of  Kaisercraft’s Blue Bay Collection is really perfect for so many different photos. The wooden & shutters papers have so much texture and the color scheme of this collection just brings a sense of peace while crafting.  The best part, however are the quotes that fill the papers, die cuts and stickers. Motivational and sentimental all in one collection I was thrilled to use it for today’s Mid Week Mojo

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

I once again was thrilled to be able to use some co-worker’s photos. I chose just a couple of pictures from Liam’s first year. Just look at that face.

The frosting on the face was a perfect shot to coordinate with this collection.

The stickers and die cuts have so much texture with a vintage feel. You can almost reach out and touch the wood worn frames and plaster clocks.

A big congrats to Cynthia B, you are last week’s winner! I love how you dedicated your layout to your sister!

Simple Stories Life Documented| Mid Week Mojo Daffodil #1

Daffodil – Week 1 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

Today I was so excited to use the highly anticipated release,  Simple Stories Life Documented for today’s Mid Week Mojo I was able to see this collection a while ago and after a few delays we are finally able to show it off.  As I looked through the collection, one photo of my Samantha kept popping in my head. The look on her face in this senior photo just made me think of her looking to her future trying to figure out her next step. This collection conveys that sentiment perfectly.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

The mix of chipboard, stickers and die cuts in this collection made it easy to have different dimensions on this layout.

I have two new favorite scrapbooking products, both are here in the Life Documented collection. The Word Strip stickers have great sentiments and there are tons to choose from in the pack. The other item (and probably my most favorite) is the new Bradz. The look and feel of decorative brads, but with no prongs. No more poking holes in your papers or trying to hide those prongs on the back of your double-sided journaling cards. I am in heaven.

The arrow paper and squiggly arrow die cuts perfectly conveyed the confusion of a girl in her senior year trying to decide what to do with the rest of her life.

I love the tags in the Bits & Pieces die cut pack. They are all done in journaling paper so perfect to add journaling to your layout.

There she is, my girl with her whole future ahead of her. I love that smile.

A big congrats to Andria Dekker, you are last week’s winner!
