My Mind’s Eye Joyous | Mid Week Mojo Lilac #4

Lilac – Week 4 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

I used to be one of those that would walk around the mall and be a tiny bit annoyed when I started seeing Christmas goodies in all of the stores in the middle of the summer. Then…I started working in the paper-crafting industry and each July my heart warmed seeing the new holiday collections. I start to have feelings of love, family, warmth, excitement (for presents). Today’s feature, My Mind’s Eye Christmas Collections brought up all of those feelings and I was excited to use it for today’s Mid Week Mojo

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

Normally I’m not a giant fan of glitter, but with this collection it seems to be in the perfect places. All of the colors and designs were great to add interest to this layout.

The decorative brads included in this kit are so great to add dimension to your projects. The word stickers that are included with the alphabet stickers are a great way to add those holiday sentiments.

Echo Park Hocus Pocus | Monday Craft Madness #24

It’s hard to think it’s time to start planning for Halloween, but seeing as it’s only 14 weeks away, better get going on some projects. In trying to think of what to make for today’s Monday Craft Madness  with Echo Park Paper’s NEW Hocus Pocus Collection I tried to remember what we always needed for my kids’ school parties. In trying to create a little bit of decorations, the banner in my head ended up being little tags. I imagine these on the soda bottles or candy dishes….. So today’s theme is:

Tags

Create something tags with your favorite collection. Here’s what I created:

The great colors and patterns in the collection kit were perfect for these little tags. They were a quick project using the papers and stickers (along with a few pop dots) included in the kit.

 

For those of you out there that will be sending kids back to school and will have to sign up to help with the Halloween party, hopefully these tags can be a little jumping off point for some of your own projects.

Fancy Pants Christmas Collections | Monday Craft Madness #23

Can you believe it? Christams is just 23 weeks away!  Normally I am the queen of procrastination but I decided to use Today’s Steal Fancy Pants Christmas Collections to get started on my Christmas cards. So today’s Monday Craft Madness theme is:

Cards

Create some cards to use now or in the future. Finishing a set brings such a sense of accomplishment. Here’s what I created:

I used the Oh Deer collection kit and I LOVE how many different papers were included.  Traditional looking holiday papers as well as awesome solids and less-holilday-like patterns. You can really use much of this collection for just about any project.

Check out some close ups of the cards, I hope you will be inspired to create some cards of your own.
