Echo Park Birthday Wishes | Mid Week Mojo Daffodil #10

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

If there’s one thing each and every year that always comes…it’s birthdays. Our birthdays, our children’s birthdays, their friend’s birthdays, their cousin’s birthdays – the list goes on and on and on. Sometimes we dread celebrating those milestones each and every year, but now there’s something that can make us smile through the process.  Birthday Wishes from Echo Park Paper Ts a bright and happy birthday collection with all of the traditional elements we think of. From cake and candles to party hats and presents, this collection has everything you need for your celebratory memories. Today’s Mid Week Mojo was super fun to create.  I just can’t get enough of little Jovi and her 1st birthday celebration. This collection suited her celebration perfectly.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

I decided to concentrate all of the elements in one spot on this page.  Negative space is a hard thing for me to leave, but I do love how this one turned out. Starting with a 4″ x 4″ photo, I built the space around it.

The available sticker elements in this collection were perfect for this layout.  From the title to the balloons and cupcakes I found everything I wanted to add to this layout.

A few pop dots and a few gems finish up the layout and highlight Jovi as the princess she truly is.

A big congrats to Leslie Walker, you are last week’s winner!

October Afternoon Milk Money | Monday Craft Madness #12

October Afternoon always has awesome nostalgic collections. They have easily become some of my very favorites. Today for Monday Craft Madness I we are going to showcase some awesome projects made by the October Afternoon design team using the Milk Money Collection I love the pocket page movement and that you can mix up your scrapbooking and keep it interesting….. So today’s theme is:

Pocket Pages

Create something using a pocket page. Here’s what we found from the October Afternoon Design Team:

Jill Sprott created a great year in review pocket page with Milk Money.

I love this pocket page and how they added bits and pieces of info from school onto each square. Remembering the bits is hard to do when we get older, this is an awesome way to keep in in your memory.

Mou Saha created some beautiful work with pocket pages and Milk Money.

The simplicity of this look is amazing. The photos take center stage.

Laura Vegas created a great album about her time with CKU Scrapbook Conventions. I love the versatility of this collection that it can be used for more than school projects.

Fancy Pants Designs As You Wish | Mid Week Mojo Daffodil #9

Daffodil – Week 9 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

I’ve been a bit on a journey this year so far. I’m going through self-discovery as well as trying to concentrate on more positive things. Today’s collection, Fancy Pants Designs As You Wish Tis a perfect collection to help remind myself to work on being a better person. While the collection has a definite travel vibe, it also has a great sentiment towards shifting your focus.  Today’s  Mid Week Mojo has something I rarely do, a picture of myself.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

I love the tags, stickers and embellishments Fancy Pants creates. They always seem to match whatever project you are working on.

The variety of chipboard and plastic buttons are awesome to add your dimension and interest to your projects. One of my very favorite pieces are the title cards. They are a little ‘fancy’ but also perfect for your layouts and mini albums. It seems they choose the perfect quotes for every project I start working on.

A big congrats to Gail Owens, you are last week’s winner!

Jen Hadfield Home + Made | Monday Craft Madness # 11

This year I vowed to try to find something positive in every day. It seems to be a bit of a challenge for me and I tend to be a little sarcastic in my daily life. I then realized I probably needed a daily reminder. After a month or so of post-it notes cluttering my bathroom mirror, I decided to make something a little more fun. So today for Monday Craft Madness I used the Jen Hadfield Home + Made collection from Pebbles Inc to make a reminder to have on my desk at work….. So today’s theme is:

Motiviational

Create something motivational for yourself. Here’s what I created:

 

I loved the recipe box that comes in this collection and decided to use it to focus on one positive word each day. I love how this recipe box comes with so many cards, I can continue to add to my positive word stash as the year goes on.

The papers in this collection are so diverse, lots of different colors. They all coordinate beautifully and make it so you can create dozens of projects that don’t look the same.

What are your positive words for this year?

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.

A big congrats to Staci Jones, you are last week’s winner!
