Teresa Collins Every Day Moments | Mid Week Mojo

Amethyst – Layout 5

I’ll let you in on a little secret if you haven’t discovered it already. The color scheme in today’s steal, the Teresa Collins Every Day Moments collection is superb. If you are looking for a delightfully mellow and refreshing palate to scrapbook your everyday moments, then today’s steal is for you. And do you want to know another little secret? I love this combination of yellows and blues, greys and teals, that I am wholeheartedly considering re-painting my entire house in this scheme. How’s that for being inspired by everyday moments.

Now I don’t know about you but sometimes it’s nice to create a scrapbook page without having to put too much thought into it. AKA, a journaling free layout. **gasp** Did I just say that it was sometimes nice to do a layout without journaling? Eeek! I guess I did. Sometimes it’s just nice to let the creative process flow without stressing about what to say for posterity’s sake.

As I was thinking about what to scrapbook for this week’s sketch with these beautiful papers, I looked on my desk and saw the cutest little smile looking up at me. How could I resist the opportunity to scrap one of my leftover project photos of  baby Taylee, who is the new little addition to Jenni, one of my awesome co-workers. (is baby Taylee not the cutest thing ever?!) After a very, very busy week or two it was so therapeutic to simply scrap for the joy of it. No worries at all, other than hoping that Jenni likes it.

So this week, against the the passion of my entire being, you have a free pass on journaling. Enjoy scrapping just for the fun of it!

Now the time you’ve all been waiting for, to see who is the winner of the Amethyst 4 sketch. Well this week our incredibly talented winner is Cathryn Hanson. Cathryn is always such a wealth of inspiration. She truly has a gift and a knack for putting a scrapbook page together. Cathryn’s immaculate inking in combination with her eye for embellishments makes a winning layout every time!

Congrats girl! Be sure to send an email to and let them know that you are this week’s lucky winner and we will be sending off a little scrappy loot to keep enabling your creations. :)

Doodlebug Baby – MWM #26

Doodlebug Baby – MWM #26

Oh my word!  Can you believe it?  Week #26?  We are officially half way through one year of Mid Week Mojos!  What a great ride it has been.  I don’t know about you, but I’ve loved every minute of it!  I also loved working with today’s steal, the Doodlebug Designs, Baby Extravaganza. I think Melodee must have some sort of 6th sense about what would be perfect for me to create a Mid Week Mojo with, as just last week I was able to do a newborn photo shoot for a dear friend, and thought it would be great to use her photos and surprise her with a layout!

Honestly if there is one product on the planet that says baby to me, it’s Doodlebug Designs.  I love how their prints are subtle,  and compliment the newness of a baby so perfectly!  I also have to give a huge shout out for the kits that are being sold today as they come with step by step instructions to complete three layouts AND various cards and tags!  It just doesn’t get better than that!

However, I did stray from the sketches provided as I wanted to showcase the sweet little baby parts of little Mr. Connor. I needed a sketch that included a full sized photo of him as well as 3 smaller accent photos.

I love how the layout turned out.

My favorite ribbon on the planet has to be Doodlebug.  I love how it coordinates so nicely with their papers and is so easy to work with.

Of course the ‘Oh My Words’ are too stinkin’ cute, so I couldn’t pass up using them either.

I hope you like your layout Brooke!  Thanks again for letting me love on little Mr. Connor and take his photos.  Mwah!

I can’t wait to see what you come up with, for sketch #25.  I absolutely LOVED looking at last weeks sketches that were posted on our Facebook Fan Page.  Random.Org loved them too, and selected this layout by Karisse Laellau as our weekly winner!  I love Karisse’s layout and how she managed to add a bunch of little photos to the right hand page.  Way to work the sketch!!!

Congrats Karisse.  Be sure to send your address to us at and we will get a little scrappy goodness sent your way.  <3

Hope you all have incredible crafty vibes flowing this week.  Be sure to post your pages to our Facebook Fan Page or blog by next Monday at midnight in order to be eligible for our weekly drawing.  Also be sure to spread the word!  There’s nothing better than inviting new scrappy friends to join our happy family.  The more inspiration, the better!

Have a great day and I will see you on Friday with a fun idea for a fun product!
