October Afternoon Summertime | Monday Craft Madness #21

The season it upon us, the time that rewards for surviving all of the tortuous months of winter. It’s summertime! Celebrate summer with us and  October Afternoon’s New Summertime Collection. tAs I am looking forward to the summer months with my kids home from school, we are planning a trip to go see some concerts. Today for Monday Craft Madness I decided to make a mini album before we go on the road trip in hopes I will actually put photos in it when we get home….. So today’s theme is:

Mini Album

Create a mini album for an event in your life. There is such a sense of completion when you do a mini album. Here’s what I created:

The bright and sunny colors and patterns in this collection along with the cheery images are a perfect base for our impending good time.

I always love the nostalgic images that are included in October Afternoon’s collections. The puffy stickers they include now are so cute. Do you see that cloud? It’s puffy!

The only thing I didn’t like about this project is that this particular mini album was too small to use all the paper designs. I may need to create a second album if we have as much fun as I think we will.  Create a mini album BEFORE a trip or event, then after you can easily put in the pictures and re-live all the fun right after your trip.

Simple Stories Smarty Pants | Mid Week Mojo Tulip #9

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

It’s the end of the school year for most of us. Our kids’ have cleaned out their desks and lockers and brough home tons of papers. Now they are home All. The. Time. I seem to have collected school photos each and every year for all three of my kids. With how old they are, that’s 30+ school photos. Not the best backgrounds, the kids never combed their hair or wore nice clothes. I can’t seem to throw them all away. Then I saw the Smarty Pants Collection from Simple Stories I’ve seen the collection before, but this time I had sort of an epiphany. I will use this collection, the same sketch (flip it for each year) and create abook of these photos. Today’s Mid Week Mojo makes me smile. Nicholas’ Kindergarten photo.

Here is the layout:

 

Here is the sketch:

I flipped around the sketch a couple of different ways and was able to do my son’s First and Second Grade photos as well.

 

Simple Stories always has great stickers, journaling cards and patterned papers so you can create dozens of layouts for your school photos.

Just imagine a full album where you can put all of these school photos that show the grown of those beautiful kids.

Pebbles Inc Happy Day | Mid Week Mojo Tulip #8

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

We all need a little sunshine in our daily lives. The  Pebbles Inc Happy Day Collection definitely brought a little sunshine to my life this week. Filled with daily things that make you happy – your favorite beverage, instagram, flowers & sunshine this collection will be perfect for your daily memories as well as spring and summer fun. I found this photo of little Jovi looking like she’s posing for her first selfie and thought it would be perfect for today’s Mid Week Mojo

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

The thickers included in this kit are perfect for titles and other journaling. I love how they are brown chipboard with a wood-like design. It brings a natural sense with dimension and makes your words pop off the page.

The set of tags and frames are fun to use for embellishments, I cut apart the selfie one and added the super large enamel dots.

The cut out frame on the tags are great for a photo or an embellishment base. Super simple to add just a little extra to your project.

A big congrats to Karrie Sweet, you are last week’s winner!

Simple Stories Sn@p! Kits | Monday Craft Madness #19

There is a sort of movement sweeping through the Scrapbook world – Pocket Letters. I’ve been in awe for a while and finally decided to give it a try. I’ve seen friends participate and manufacturer blogs show them off. Today for Monday Craft Madness I decided to use Simple Stories Sn@p! Kit to make my own Pocket Letter….. So today’s theme is:

Pocket Letters

Create your own pocket letter or show us some you have received. Here’s what I created:

I chose the family kit and decided to create my pocket letter around my family and the mottos we live by (or at least try to). I chose this sheet protector from Simple Stories because it folds easily for mailing.

I love all of the pieces in these little kits, so many options for adding fun to your projects. Check out some close-ups of the cards.

I hope you decide to get some friends or family together and swap some pocket letters of your own.
