Bo Bunny Boardwalk | Mid Week Mojo Tulip #7

Tulip – Week 7 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

If you love a traditional summer beachy collection with the calming classic elements, the all Bo Bunny Boardwalk Collection  is for you. The eclectic mix of colors and patterns along with the traditional anchors and sandcastles will evoke childhood memories of your beach vacations. For today’s Mid Week Mojo I decided to try to use the collection with a different sort of photo. This is little Zach just before he entered his ‘Terrible Twos’. I thought the title perfectly explained the ride his parents were about to take.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

Bo Bunny always has such fun collections with a little bit of vintage and modern thrown together. An eclectic mix of patterns and colors will add interest to your projects. This photo makes me remember the days when my kids were entering their terrible two phase…ahh the memories. The embellishments are always my favorite part, I just love adding texture and dimension using layered chipboard, brads, buttons and more.

My Mind’s Eye Just Sayin’ | Monday Craft Madness #18

I have a problem with my scrapbook supplies. One that I believe all of us scrappers face. I make projects and have bits and pieces left from my collections – TONS OF PIECES. While on Facebook the other day I was reading posts from a group of awesome ladies preparing to get together for a weekend of scrappy fun. They decided to get together to create their own embellishments with their scraps to have on hand for future projects. A giant lightbulb went off, what an awesome idea. So today for Monday Craft Madness I used the Just Sayin’ Collection from My Mind’s Eye to make some embellishments….. So today’s theme is:

Home-Made Embellishment

Pull out your left-over papers, embellishments and punches and make something fun. Here’s what I created:

I used bits of papers & embellishments, some basic kraft die cuts, and my scalloped circle and flower punches. Just layer the pieces you love and have left over from a kit and voila! many little fun embellishments to be used on future projects. Take a closer look.

We would LOVE to see what home-made embellishments you create.

Simple Stories Summer Fun | Mid Week Mojo Tulip #6

Tulip – Week 6 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

Better late than never?? This Memorial Day Holiday messed up my inner schedule so we are a little late this week, hopefully you will forgive us.

Simple Stories is one of my favorite manufacturers. I love all of the collections they put out. Their ‘Simple Sets’ are some of the best. Little collections that are perfect for big memories. The Sea to Shining Sea Collection seemed perfect for today’s Mid Week Mojo I came across this awesome photo in the stack of Disney Vacation photos I got from our Angie. She got to share her Disney experience not only with her 2 year old and husband but also with her mom. What a great memory for them.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

I love simple sketches that you can take liberty to embellish. Using the journaling cards that come in collections these days are perfect for this type of layout.

The stickers included in this kit along with some pop dots and other basic embellishments take this patriotic-themed collection into a summer fun collection.

A big congrats to Sheryl Kloke, you are last week’s winner!

Doodlebug Design Americana | Mid Week Mojo Tulip #5

Tulip – Week 5 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

The summer season is descending upon us. Even though here in Utah we are having rainstorm after rainstorm I am still looking forward to outdoor family parties, bar-b-cues and all things warm and happy. The Americana Collections from Doodlebug Design put me in a summer fun mood almost immediately. Then I found this pic from last summer with the cute Jovi ready for a party and I just had to use it for today’s Mid Week Mojo

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

With all of the fun papers included in this kit – embossed, flocked, patterned – I wanted to figure out a way to use as many of the patterns and textures as possible. I decided to create a sort of quilt effect for all of the patterns and use the flocked papers as bold color accents attached to the embossed background paper.

I’ve always had a challenge with leaving white space on a layout, but I faced my fear and tried it out on this one. The included embellishments added such a fun focal point to bring your eye to this awesome photo.

After creating my flocked paper doily I wanted to add some of the fun and colorful embellishments to the page. While this space would also be great for a photo I had a blast with the stickers, pop dots and ribbon.

While the title may seem an obvious match to this collection, I love the scripty words on this sticker title and how the space lent itself to more embellishments.

A big congrats to Nicole Paul, you are last week’s winner!
