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.

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.

Simple Stories Life Documented| Mid Week Mojo Daffodil #1

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

Today I was so excited to use the highly anticipated release,  Simple Stories Life Documented for today’s Mid Week Mojo I was able to see this collection a while ago and after a few delays we are finally able to show it off.  As I looked through the collection, one photo of my Samantha kept popping in my head. The look on her face in this senior photo just made me think of her looking to her future trying to figure out her next step. This collection conveys that sentiment perfectly.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

The mix of chipboard, stickers and die cuts in this collection made it easy to have different dimensions on this layout.

I have two new favorite scrapbooking products, both are here in the Life Documented collection. The Word Strip stickers have great sentiments and there are tons to choose from in the pack. The other item (and probably my most favorite) is the new Bradz. The look and feel of decorative brads, but with no prongs. No more poking holes in your papers or trying to hide those prongs on the back of your double-sided journaling cards. I am in heaven.

The arrow paper and squiggly arrow die cuts perfectly conveyed the confusion of a girl in her senior year trying to decide what to do with the rest of her life.

I love the tags in the Bits & Pieces die cut pack. They are all done in journaling paper so perfect to add journaling to your layout.

There she is, my girl with her whole future ahead of her. I love that smile.
