Teresa Collins Hello My Name Is | Mid Week Mojo Pansy #3

Pansy - Week 3 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

We have the awesome  Brenda Smith back with us again using Teresa  Collins Hello My Name Is for today’s Mid Week Mojo

Good morning everyone! Brenda here with yet another sketch. I was excited upon seeing Teresa Collins’ “Hello My Name Is” because there are numerous elements that would lend themselves well to Project Life spreads, but what excited me even more was realizing how versatile those elements were. It inspired me to create a sketch that could put some of those 3×4 journal cards to use on a layout.
I have two variations of the sketch today. The first is with a traditional landscape 4×6 photo.
This was initially the direction I was going to go with my layout, but over the weekend my husband and I went on a quick trip to the mountains above our city and I got a great panorama photo that I wanted to scrap. So I modified the sketch a little to include a longer photo.
Here is my layout:
I used Photoshop Elements to size my photo and printed it out on 8.5″x11″ photo paper and trimmed down to size. If you are without photo editing software, you could use a free program such as Picasa to make a landscape 8×10 collage and use the top 2/5ths to insert your panorama and then print at your favorite photo lab. If you need more help figuring out how to print one, feel free to ask in the comments here or on the Scrapbook Steals Facebook page.
I just had to use some of the 3×4 cards so I used one title card and one with journaling space. Also, there’s this perfect sheet of patterned paper full of polaroid frames that I cut up to use in place of the journal spots. I had extra photos that I wanted to include so I thought these frames would be the perfect way to feature them.
I finished off the layout with some of the chipboard stickers, sequins, and enamel dots from this collection. There are so many cute, usable embellishments in this line!
Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to seeing your creations this week!

My Mind’s Eye Joyous | Monday Craft Madness #26

When July comes around everywhere we go we start seeing holiday decorations. They used to bother me, making me feel guilty for not having started my holiday planning yet. Over the past couple of years I have a new philosophy; if you can’t beat them, join them. So today for Monday Craft Madness I used My Mind’s Eye New Joyous Collection to start making my Christmas cards….. So today’s theme is:

Cards

Create some cards and show us your favorites. Here’s what I created:

I love how this collection feels so traditional, but isn’t really. The bold reds and blues have a splash of green, usually you see the traditional red and green with some splashes of other colors. This was fun to work with. The cardstock stickers included in the collection kit make for quick cards.

Included in this collection is a package of pre-made, die cut tags. Super easy to just add a quick bit of twine and embellishment and voila, card all done.

I mentioned how much I loved the blues in this collection, those papers along with the red glittered papers in this collection add that little extra pizzazz to your cards and other projects.  The decorative brads are also a beautiful, easy embellishment to add to your creation.

The red chevron is my favorite piece in this collection. Here I used more of the tags to create the sentiments. Add some word stickers and pop dots and there is a little extra touch.

Check out some more close ups of the cards and hopefully they will inspire you to start working on your holiday projects too.
