Imaginisce Hello Cupcake | Monday Card Madness #100

Wow! I simply cannot believe we have reached one hundred weeks of Monday Card Madness sketches! And what better way to celebrate than with today’s steal, the Imaginisce Hello Cupcake collection? Nothing says “let’s party” like a darling paper collection perfect for boys and girls, young and old. And as always, Imaginisce adds the perfect touch to their papers with that little touch of shimmer.

This week I decided to use some of my favorite sketches from the past two years to create cards for today’s post.

For first card I made I decided to go with sketch #79. This sketch is a gorgeous one made by guest blogger Heidi Van Laar.

For card #2 I stepped back to around the one year mark of Monday Card Madness and went with sketch #52.

Next, I moved forward in time and used the sketch #86 that Design Team member Cyndee Kawa created for a Monday Card Madness. I really love how this one turned out! :)

For my 4th card I went wayyyyyyyyyyy back in time to sketch #23 and used this fun sketch.

And lastly I ended up with the sketch #81. Another one of my all time favorites.

I can’t believe how quickly these cards came together simply by using some timeless sketches along with the abundance of embellishments in today’s steal!

So now you may be asking what you’re supposed to do for this week’s Monday Card Madness. Well, the sky is the limit! Just have fun and make sure that this week’s card is celebration based. It can be birthday, anniversary, congrats or even HAPPY 100 WEEKS of Monday Card Madness. ;)

We R Memory Keepers Funfetti | Mid Week Mojo

Garnet – Layout 9

It’s another new year and that means that there will be many birthday celebrations coming up. If you are looking for a fun collection for scrapbooking birthday memories, then today’s steal, Funfetti by We R Memory Keepers is sure to be a hit! With the unique twist on bold colors, die cut embellishments and happy face stickers, what is not to love?

Mid Week Mojo

I decided that it was high time to create a page about my husband’s 40th birthday just over a year ago. I know when most people are looking for a good sketch to pair with a party that they like to use multiple photos, so I decided to pack the page with a little punch and use twelve.

I didn’t have a lot of extra space on my layout so the embellishments that are part of the Funfetti collection really worked well to add a little something to the page.

I even had fun doing a little “fussy cutting” out of one of the sheets of paper to create the banner across the bottom.

Let’s Celebrate a Little Freestyle | Mid Week Mojo #34

I was excited when I knew I’d be working with one of Teresa’s collections to create this weeks Mid Week Mojo. I love her style where shabby meets eclectic, and chic meets timeless style.  Today’s choice of steals, the Freestyle Album Kit or the Celebrate Album Kit both allow Teresa’s true style to shine.

I used the Freestyle collection as it’s been a long time since I’ve created a deliciously girly girl layout. I figured these papers would be perfect to create a layout about my recently painted pink piggies!

Now some of you are probably wondering why I used a mini album kit to create a layout, but I wanted to show how even a pre-designed kit can be filled with inspiration for creating other projects.

I turned to Teresa’s amazing full-color instruction manual and used it as my inspiration for creating today’s sketch.

I used my Silhouette to cut out some butterflies to replicate the butterflies in the Freestyle kit.

I also added one of the punch out die cuts since there are a ton to choose from.

Teresa’s kits come with so much product that I will have absolutely no problem creating my Mojo layout and the mini album.

Also, I’m kind of a sucker for birthday-themed product, not so much for making birthday layouts, but I truly cannot wait to use Teresa’s Celebrate album kit to actually preserve a birthday memory without having to stress about the design.

Now it’s time for our lucky weekly winner.  A huge congrats goes out to Becky Walters, our random winner for this week!

I absolutely love the title of Becky’s layout as it truly captures the moment of such a wonderful occasion. Becky, please email us your address to orders@scrapbooksteals.com and we will get a prize sent out to you.
