Even though it is Birthday Party time around here, a celebration is a celebration right? Today for Monday Craft Madness I wanted to share a cool idea from one of Teresa Collins’ design team members Cheri Piles. She used Teresa Collins Tinsel & Company to make a beautiful non-Christmas wreath for her door….So today’s theme is:

Switch it Up

Create something unexpected. Use a themed collection to create something non-theme specific. Here’s what Cheri created:

Cheri started off with some flat wreath bases from her local craft store.

The wreath came together pretty quickly and easily here are the first steps:

  1. Spray the two bases and star ornament white
  2. Add some clear or white glitter to the smaller wreath
  3. Set all three pieces aside to dry
  4. Cut 8 strips 1 1/2″ and 8 strips 1 1/4″
  5. Cut each strip 6″ in length for a total of 16 strips each
  6. Use the Teresa Collins Stapler or another stapler to assemble your paper chain

Once your pieces are dry take some invisible thread and hang the small wreath to the center of the large base and glue your star wood ornament to the center of the small one.

Tie your ribbon on and hot glue the larger pieces onto the base. If you like a little extra bling add some stars from the sequins package to finish it off.

October Afternoon Treasure Map | Mid Week Mojo Tulip #1

Tulip – Week 1 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

We have all been waiting for the new  Treasure Map Collection from October Afternoon and we are thrilled to have it here at ScrapbookSteals!  When I first got my hands on this collection I started planning the outings, clothing and trips to take so I can create memories and photos. I wish my kids were still little and cooperative and I could plan a photo shoot. Instead I decided to see if I could use the collection as a general layout for today’s  Mid Week Mojo To my delight I love how it turned out.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

October Afternoon always has such fun embellishments; stickers, chipboard, journaling die cuts and more. Making a little embellishment collage was fun on this project.

I decided this time to use my pop dots to highlight the photo instead of multiple embellishments. I think it brings focus to the most important part!

Jen Hadfield Homegrown | Monday Craft Madness #14

My second daughter is about to graduate from High School. I know, I know…no way can I be that old, yet I am. It’s made me pretty nostalgic lately, but my main emotion is just pride in my little Lizzie. She has worked so hard and the end is in sight. She is a pretty mellow kid and not really wanting a party, however I am planning something. So today for Monday Craft Madness I used Jen Hadfield’s Homegrown Collection to make a celebratory banner….. So today’s theme is:

Banners

Create something that you can use for a banner. These days they are not just for celebrating, Home decor is an awesome way to use home-made banners. Here’s what I created:

Luckily in this collection there is already a great banner all ready to decorate. The black background and white letters look a little chalkboard-ey but ripe for decorating.  I kind of love how it turned out. I backed each letter with some of the 6×6 paper pad and added embellishments. Check out some close ups.

The big paper clips and the gold dipped tags are so fun. I can’t wait to find other ways to use the rest of the collection!

My Mind’s Eye Necessities | Monday Craft Madness #13

This was a challenge for me, on multiple levels.  I have never been great with limited colors and patterns. I love to mix up tons of happy colors and designs when I paper craft. Today was a different story. While today’s steal  My Mind’s Eye Necessities -Red & Teal was created to have a great supply of modern basics at your fingertips, I decided to try to use it on one project. This was tough for me, but I kind of love how it turned out. Today ‘s Monday Craft Madness theme is:

Monochromatic

Create something monochromatic; a card, a layout or some other paper-crafting project. Here’s what I created:

This is a canvas approximately 12″ x 18″ and I wanted to show off this adorable newborn photo of baby Zachary. I love the patterns and colors of the papers in this collection and the fact that the color on the vellum papers is foiled – what is better than that? Maybe the glitter monogram alphas and the glitter washi tape, not much more in the world is better than that.

I tried three or four times to set the papers and embellishments to my liking and then I just decided to go for it. Stuck everything down and started to embellish. All of the texture and dimension with one color scheme has made me so happy. I wasn’t sure I would love this project, but in the end I may have to steal baby Zachary so I can keep this canvas.
