Imaginisce Berrylicious | Monday Card Madness #51

If there’s any paper collection to wrap up the summer in a perfect way it would be today’s steal, the Berrylicious collection by Imaginisce.

This collection just screams “smile,” and I had a great time mixing up the papers and elements to create the cards for this weeks Monday Card Madness. I am especially fond of the mix of swiss dots and stripes and decided that a card design which would allow a portion of the inside paper to peek through would be perfect to show it all!

I can’t help but think that receiving a card made with the Berrylicious collection would be a surefire way to put a smile on someones face. I look forward to keeping up with the challenge of sending out joy.

In case you missed it we are underway with our next ScrapbookSteals card swap.

Here are the details:

  • This particular swap is a holiday-themed swap.
  • Create 10 cards following a Christmas, Holiday or Winter theme. (*Please leave me a note if you have a preference of Christmas or Holiday cards and I will do my best to sort accordingly).
  • All cards must include envelopes.
  • Cards must be received at the Scrapbook Steals warehouse by November 7, 2011. (Scrapbook Steals, Attn: Card Swap, 2181 California Ave., #400, SLC, UT  84045)
  • Once your cards have gone postal, be sure to send an email to letting me know they are on their way.
  • Lastly wait patiently for 10 amazing creations by different artists to find their way back to your door!

I know it’s a slightly tighter turn around than we normally have but think of how great it will be to have a variety of handmade goodness to send to your neighbors and friends to wish them a very happy holiday season.

Well, that’s it from me today. Be sure to stop by tomorrow for that amazing day of the week where we are treated to a tutorial by one of you!

My Little Shoebox | Refrigerator Magnet Fun

I love when we have new manufacturers join our ScrapbookSteals lineup. We are so excited to welcome My Little Shoebox to our Steals family, and today’s choices,the Simple Life and Sunday Market collections certainly get our relationship with them off to a bang!

When I was contemplating what “off the page” type project to make with one of today’s steals I thought I’d consult with one of my crafty friends for a unique idea. Heather Conklin suggested that I make a magnet travel kit with the Simple Life collection. I took that idea and decided to make it into a refrigerator play set. Most of us with small children have discovered that our refrigerators turn into the trophy case of little people artwork, so why not turn it into a play zone too!

I wanted to turn an entire sheet of paper into the background to build a farm on, so I went to my local craft store and picked up a sheet of magnet paper which would work with my 12×12 paper.

I used spray adhesive and attached my 12×12 paper to the top of the sheet of magnet paper. I then used my rotary hand trimmer to cut off the extra.

With the remaining portion of magnet paper, I cut out elements from the paper collection which could be used to build a farm. I used my spray adhesive to adhere the sheep, tractors and trees to the magnet paper.

I then used my scissors and trimmed off the excess areas, inked the edges and then ended up with the play pieces.

I set up the farm on my refrigerator and was greeted by a very happy 4-year-old.

This collection even inspired me to stamp! That’s saying something. (Just promise not to laugh at my novice stamping skills). :)

Have a great weekend and we will see you on Monday for another week filled with inspiration!

Girls Paperie Vintage Whimsy | Mid Week Mojo

Topaz Club — Layout 9

• • • • •

I love my job. A lot. I love that I get to work with fantastic paper product like today’s steal, Vintage Whimsy by Girls Paperie. But even more than that, I love the friendships that I’ve made through this wonderful thing called Mid Week Mojo. Not only was I able to meet in person one of our local fans, Staci Jones, but have actually been blessed to become pretty good friends with her. Recently Staci added a precious little bundle to her already amazing family. Meet Eloise.

When Staci asked if I would do a newborn photo shoot for Eli, I was thrilled. How could I resist getting to snuggle on such a beautiful baby and capture these very early moments of her life. Of course I couldn’t resist taking a few of my favorite photos to create this week’s Mid Week Mojo and the Vintage Whimsy collection could not have been more perfectly matched to these photos.

I love the timeless and vintage feel of this entire collection. The hardest part was deciding which embellishments to use as the Whimsy collections are packed!

I am particularly fond of the die cut flowers, the buttons and trim.

Thanks so much Staci for letting me create with this gorgeous photos. You and your hunny certainly did a good job with this one!

Now lets get on to our weekly drawing business! Our lucky random winner for this week is Brenda Smith! Brenda has been such an amazing part of our Mid Week Mojo family and a regular participant right from the very beginning! Congrats on your long awaited random win!
