Teresa Collins You Are My Happy | Mid Week Mojo Pansy #7

Pansy - Week 7 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

What makes you happy? For me, this list is long…after family and friends I enjoy lazy days watching reality tv, playing candy crush and snacking on salty treats. For most of us family or friends makes us the happiest. This  You Are My Happy Collection from Teresa Collins is the perfect collection to create a layout showing exactly who makes you happy. For today’s Mid Week Mojo I found some awesome pics from a co-worker that show exactly how new baby Liam makes her so very happy.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

I love the pack of borders in this kit and just had to use one as my title, but in addition to the awesome borders are tons of other embellishments. From chipboard and brads to enamel dots and sequins, the perfect addition to your project is on hand.

The included cupcake toppers are for more than just cupcakes. I decided to use a couple as an embellishment on the page, I love how easy they are to work with and all the dimension they add.

Fancy Pants Designs Burlap & Bouquets | Monday Craft Madness #30

I’ve been looking at this collection since the release days, just loving every bit of it.  It’s so pretty with an earthy twist on it. It has made me smile so I decided I needed to make something that I could look at every day. Today for Monday Craft Madness I used Fancy Pants Burlap & Bows to make a bouquet I can give to a friend….. So today’s theme is:

Flowers

Create something with flowers, floral paper or floral embellishments. Or even create a layout about the beautiful garden you are cultivating. Here’s what I created:

This was a pretty quick and easy bouquet to create, I did a pinwheel from solid cardstock, added some buttons and die cut flowers from the ephemera pack. I love the burlap bows in this collection, I added them to the bouquet also.

The small tags included in this collection have some really great sayings. I trimmed them down to just the words and matted them on some paper.

I also just added some of the large flowers from the ephemera pack to the sticks and included them in the bouquet.

The ephemera pack also had some great quotes I matted one and included in the bouquet.

Finally I filled a mason jar up with some rice and added a card to the front that included one of the small tags and some of the buttons.

I know just what friend I want to give this to, to thank her for all of her love and support. I hope it makes her smile.

Teresa Collins Daily Stories | Mid Week Mojo Pansy #6

Pansy - Week 6 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

It’s no secret that Teresa Collins has some of my favorite collections to craft with. Today I got to use Daily Stories for the  Mid Week Mojo I wanted to give myself a little challenge, so I decided to use a photo of a co-worker’s son even though this collection has tons of pink accents. It was a little bit of a challenge for me to choose patterns and colors that were a little less feminine. I am happy with the results and the little bit of pink on this little boy layout is kind of awesome.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

I am so in love with the pack of tags that Teresa Collins is including in her collections these days. They have great patterns and sayings and are the perfect size to fussy cut if necessary. There are three pieces of tags on this layout, after a little bit of fussy cutting I love the result.

I love using chipboard to add dimension to my projects, combined with the carstock stickers and a little bit of sequins, it makes for a great cluster of embellishments.

A big congrats to Anglea Asmus, you are last week’s winner!

My Mind’s Eye Chalk Studio II | Monday Craft Madness #29

In a few months I will be celbrating my 20th wedding anniversary. (I know it’s shocking as I seem so young.) I have been wanting to work on a project as a gift for the hubby and when I saw Steal Name It was the perfect collection for a little journal album I can give my husband. Today for Monday Craft Madness I started a mini remembrance album….. So today’s theme is:

Mini Album

Create something mini or show us your favorite mini album. Here’s what I created:

I found a little mini album with a chipboard storage box in my stash. I covered the box and the mini album with the B-sides of the 12×12 papers. I love how they are chalkboard on the front and bright bold colors on the back.

 

Inside the little 3×3 sheet protectors are the perfect size to add little love notes I have collected over the past 20 years. I am excited to fill the album with those notes…now to just remember where I hid them.

We R Memory Keepers Jet Set | Mid Week Mojo Pansy #5

Pansy - Week 5 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

Today marks the last day of our month long guest sketches from the fabulous Brenda Smith I for one am sad to see her go, but I have loved each and every sketch she has created for us. This week she used We R Memory Keepers Jet Set Collection for her last Mid Week Mojo of July.

• • • • •

Good morning everyone. Today marks the last week of my guest sketching and I want to thank each of you for having me and for playing along. I have truly enjoyed myself and have loved seeing what you’ve all created. I must admit that today’s collection, WRMK’s Jet Set, is definitely a favorite of mine. You don’t often see purple in scrapbook supplies and I think the purple, blue, green, and orange combination is unexpectedly gorgeous. It’s perfect for masculine or feminine projects, travel and non-travel themed pages both. And because today is my last week, I’ve decided to provide two different sketches and layouts, Pansy 5A and Pansy 5B. Choose one or the other or do both for double the entries into this week’s prize drawing :)

First, Pansy 5A:



And my layout: 


My lovely friend Melissa took this (auto-timed) picture of us while we were visiting a garden in downtown SLC during last year’s Scrapbook Steals crop. I’ve been waiting for the perfect time to scrap it and when I saw these papers and embellishments, I knew it was time. I love all the globe-themed embellishments.



I love how the stickers have a slight dimension and texture to them.

My second sketch, Pansy 5B:



And my layout:



A ton of layering is not usually my style but there are so many fun patterned papers in this collection that I couldn’t let any go to waste. I enjoyed putting a bunch of patterns together to get a graphic punch without feeling like the page was overwhelmed.



I cut out some tags from a patterned paper for embellishments and I think it turned out perfectly. And aren’t those chipboard alphas fabulous?!

As always, I’m looking forward to seeing your creations. Thanks again for having me this month!

-Brenda
