Pink Paislee Bella Rouge | Monday Craft Madness #22

When I first saw the Bella Rouge collection I sort of fell in love right away. Not because of the pink or the shiny of it all, but because of the theme. All of the sayings and feelings this collection evokes is one of inspiration. My oldest daughter is about to turn 20 (I know I CAN’T be that old!) and finding presents for her is harder and harder. I also feel a huge responsibility to hurry and teach her everything I haven’t yet before she really grows up and moves out. So today for Monday Craft Madness I decided to use the Bella Rouge Collection to make a little book I can give her to hopefully remind her how awesome she is….. So today’s theme is:

Inspiration

Create something inspirational for yourself or someone else. Here’s what I created:

While the paper designs in this collection are awesome, I decided to just use the 4×4 Journal Cards and Embellishments. All of the cards had great designs and/or awesome sayings that I want to impart to my oldest child. Check out the pages.

Bo Bunny Juliet | Mid Week Mojo Tulip #10

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

Who doesn’t love a little romance in their lives. Sometimes it’s a challenge to get those men in our lives away from the video games to create a little romance. Luckily we have the new  Juliet Collection from Bo Bunny to satisfy that feeling. Ok maybe not really, but when I saw this collection I immediately thought, “how romantic looking”. I got this photo from a co-worker a while ago and have been looking for the perfect collection to use it. I sort of proves how versatile this collection is. I immediately got away from the romantic thoughts in my head and just thought, “how beautiful” Check out today’s Mid Week Mojo

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

The sticker sheets included in Bo Bunny’s collection kits have such a variety of items. I love using their word stickers for titles on my layouts.

Bo Bunny’s embellishments have always been some of my favorites. Their layered chipboard stickers have a little extra love with glitter added.

More of the awesome embellishments adds dimension and interest to the layout.

With all the beautiful designs in this collection, I may find myself using this collection again.

A big congrats to Jessica Laureano, you are last week’s winner!

October Afternoon Summertime | Monday Craft Madness #21

The season it upon us, the time that rewards for surviving all of the tortuous months of winter. It’s summertime! Celebrate summer with us and  October Afternoon’s New Summertime Collection. tAs I am looking forward to the summer months with my kids home from school, we are planning a trip to go see some concerts. Today for Monday Craft Madness I decided to make a mini album before we go on the road trip in hopes I will actually put photos in it when we get home….. So today’s theme is:

Mini Album

Create a mini album for an event in your life. There is such a sense of completion when you do a mini album. Here’s what I created:

The bright and sunny colors and patterns in this collection along with the cheery images are a perfect base for our impending good time.

I always love the nostalgic images that are included in October Afternoon’s collections. The puffy stickers they include now are so cute. Do you see that cloud? It’s puffy!

The only thing I didn’t like about this project is that this particular mini album was too small to use all the paper designs. I may need to create a second album if we have as much fun as I think we will.  Create a mini album BEFORE a trip or event, then after you can easily put in the pictures and re-live all the fun right after your trip.

Simple Stories Smarty Pants | Mid Week Mojo Tulip #9

Tulip – Week 9 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

It’s the end of the school year for most of us. Our kids’ have cleaned out their desks and lockers and brough home tons of papers. Now they are home All. The. Time. I seem to have collected school photos each and every year for all three of my kids. With how old they are, that’s 30+ school photos. Not the best backgrounds, the kids never combed their hair or wore nice clothes. I can’t seem to throw them all away. Then I saw the Smarty Pants Collection from Simple Stories I’ve seen the collection before, but this time I had sort of an epiphany. I will use this collection, the same sketch (flip it for each year) and create abook of these photos. Today’s Mid Week Mojo makes me smile. Nicholas’ Kindergarten photo.

Here is the layout:

 

Here is the sketch:

I flipped around the sketch a couple of different ways and was able to do my son’s First and Second Grade photos as well.

 

Simple Stories always has great stickers, journaling cards and patterned papers so you can create dozens of layouts for your school photos.

Just imagine a full album where you can put all of these school photos that show the grown of those beautiful kids.

A big congrats to Christina Steel, you are last week’s winner!
