My Mind’s Eye Jubilee | Mid Week Mojo Gardenia #1

Gardenia- Week 1 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

I was thinking the other day, as I am sure we all do, that my kids have grown up way too fast. When we scheduled My Mind’s Eye Jubilee as our steal today, I thought it was the perfect collection to do a tribute layout to my kids. Finding these photos of my kids about 10 years ago just made me smile. I decided to use them for today’s Mid Week Mojo I could see their future in their eyes in these photos and I love the people they have all become.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

I decided I wanted to use the 3×4 journal cards in this collection for the background.  I chose a few of my favorites and then filed in the holes with some of the fabulous patterned papers. As usual, the die cuts in the mixed bag and the adhesive chipboard pieces are perfect for embellishing your projects.

When I saw the journaling card that said, “this is the good stuff” my kids were the first thing that came to my mind. They are really the good stuff that my world revolves around.

This patterned paper also already contained a good quote. I have always wanted to teach my kids to find an adventure and live with no regrets. I think they have grown into just those people; courageous, adventurous,  and strong.

Simple Stories Cozy Christmas | Monday Craft Madness #33

While all of Simple Stories’ collections are perfect for preserving memories, both in the traditional 12×12 format and the pocket page style, I noticed something fun about  Simple Stories Cozy Christmas  The pages, cards and other embellishments are perfect of other projects. One of my co-workers, Kerianne, has an adorable son, Mason. If you frequent any of the Steals.com websites you have probably seen his happy face. I decided to help him a little bit with his letter to Santa for this year. I can’t imagine Santa refusing Mason’s requests if he receives an entire mini album. So for today’s Monday Craft Madness I created a mini album letter to Santa…..  today’s theme is:

Mini Albums

Create an interesting twist on a mini album, like a letter to someone you love. Here’s what I created:

I love how the 6×8 pages included in this collection are all sorts of sizes and shapes. It offers a kinds of dimension and texture when you first look at the album. I added a few of the bits and pieces die cuts and enamel dots to the cover.

We figured a photo of mason will help santa remember who he is.

The chipboard pieces match up with the designs beautifully.

The die cut pages add a little bit of interest as you thumb through the album.

We used one of the 3×4 journaling cards for Mason’s present request list.

 

Santa can also keep track of where Mason will be all through December, just so they don’t miss each other.

And finally, Mason’s letter to Santa. It’s important to list all of the good things you have done throughout the year to get on Santa’s good side.

There’s room in this album to add more items, we are going to add lists from other members of Mason’s family. I just love the idea of sending a letter to someone you love in a mini album format. All of the care and love can flow through your creativity.

Bo Bunny On the Go | Mid Week Mojo Pansy #10

Pansy - Week 10 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

When I ordered the  On the Go Collection from Bo Bunny I instantly fell in love and wished, just a little bit, that I still had a little boy in my house. I luckily found the nexxt best thing in our Marketing Director, Angie’s photos. She brought me dozens of pictures of her adorable Zach, and his 1 year birthday photos were perfect for today’s Mid Week Mojo

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

Bo Bunny always has dozens of awesome embellishments. The chipboard, layered stickers and decorative brads make creating dimension on your project quick and easy.

The cut outs pattern papers are great for adding journaling to your project.  Poor Zach did not enjoy eating his cake, he didn’t want to get messy.

Adding metal trinkets is great for a little extra texture to a layout. These airplanes are just like Zach, always on the go.
