Bo Bunny Isabella | Monday Craft Madness #6

Some days you really want to do something crafty, but either don’t have much time or much energy to create a big project. Card-making is a great way to get a little crafty without a huge time commitment. So today for Monday Craft Madness I used Bo Bunny’s Isabella Collection to make a few cards. Bo Bunny’s collections are always so great. There are neutral papers, bright papers, bold papers and traditional designs like dots or stripes along with more designer papers. A perfect compilation of color and design for card-making….. So today’s theme is:

Cards

Create some cards that you love, I flipped through a card-making magazine from Scrapbook and Cards Today and altered a few of my favorite looks. Here’s what I created:

Bo Bunny’s collection is always full of fun embellishments and bold colors. While I am not always a super fan of pink, I am kind of in love with how these cards turned out. Check out some close ups.

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 Planner | Monday Craft Madness #5

Today for Monday Craft Madness we are featuring a special steal. We have been waiting for the used Simple Stories Life Documented Planner Series for a while now. It’s finally here and so worth the wait. For all of you creative planner lovers out there, this series finally has everything you could need in one system. Plan your days, your weeks, your months, you life and your crafting. One of the buyers here at Steals.com took the planner for a test run and fell in love. Check out her planner.

Kerianne is a buyer for BabySteals.com, a teacher, a mom and wife. Needless to say her schedule is full. The happy look on her face from using this planner system made me smile.

I love how she used the notes page to write down some goals, favorite quotes and just things she wants to concentrate on during the month. This planner is so much more than a carpool schedule.

Go check out Simple Stories’ Blog Here to find more ways to use this awesome planner.

So today we don’t have a traditional Monday Craft Madness Theme , we hope we have helped inspire you a little to get a little more organized.  I know I need that in my life.
