Card Swap

My Mind’s Eye Indie Chic Citron | Monday Card Madness #87

“Oh wow!” Yes, that’s what I said when I saw today’s steal, the My Mind’s Eye, Indie Chic Citron collection. I thought the Indie Chic Nutmeg collection was my favorite, but now I think maybe Citron holds my heart! What a perfect collection for this time of year with summer at our doorstep. The blends of blues, greens, corals and yellows are perfect for anything from making a card for a June bride to creating a layout of your summer camping trip.

I haven’t created anything downright girly for quite awhile so I decided to let the beautiful floral prints in this collection be my inspiration. Now don’t be fooled—I wouldn’t describe this as a floral collection. This is an all around multi-tasking collection.

The next two cards I created are traditional A2 size, but the sketch worked perfectly to work with the smaller format.

Gosh, I love My Mind’s Eye! If you have a chance, take a moment to pop by their Facebook Fan page and let them know how much ScrapbookSteals loves featuring their products at great prices!

Basic Grey Life of the Party | Monday Card Madness #49

Do you feel like your creative life is a little lackluster? Then today’s steal, the Basic Grey Life of the Party Collection can definitely bring some of that inspiration back!

I don’t know what it is about Basic Grey and their amazing 6×6 pads, but I truly couldn’t not stop at one or two, or even four cards for today’s Monday Card Madness. Instead I had to create five cards with this inspiring collection.

I love the mix of not only patterns and colors — embellishments and buttons, but the fact that this kit is sporting some wood grain just makes me smile!

Wouldn’t you have to agree that the Life of the Party collection is definitely one that is packed with goodness?

If you’d like to be eligible for our next monthly drawing, your cards will need to be posted and linked by Friday, September 30th, at 11:59 pm MST.

Also full details on the next holiday-themed card swap will be posted next Monday, so start thinking crafty vibes along the Thanksgiving  / winter / holiday / Christmas theme. As always it will be a 10 card swap.

We’ll see you tomorrow for our next amazing How To’sday!

Have a great Monday!
