My Mind’s Eye Follow Your Heart

I literally gasped when I saw today’s steal, the brand new CHA Release, Follow Your Heart, by My Mind’s Eye. Whether you need to scrapbook a page for a boy or a girl the Be Happy or Be Amazing collections are sure to meet your needs.

In fact I was so thrilled with this collection that I immediately thought of an incredibly talented crafty genius, Shaunte Wadley, and asked her if she would mind taking over today and showing each one of you how incredible the Follow Your Heart collections are.

Shaunte has got to have some of the cutest kids on the planet. Five of them to be exact. Like myself, she is lucky and has quite the bounty of subject opportunity. I love that she settled on photos of her beautiful 12-year-old daughter to create a layout using the Be Happy collection. This layout is so fantastic. Almost like looking at an I Spy book, since every time you look there are new amazing details to be found.

Shaunte is such a well-rounded crafter. Not only does she make amazing layouts with layers and layers of details but check out her mad crafty card skills!

And as if card making and awesome layouts weren’t enough―look at this wreath! 1×3″ strips of paper, folded, stapled and hot glued to a foam wreath.

Seriously, stunning. :)

Shaunte, wanted me to be sure to let you know one more thing. In her words:

“I also wanted to tell all your peeps over there, that I used the whole kit, and felt like it was worth every penny. Great value for the amount of projects you can squeeze out of it, and I am pretty cheap. You can quote me on that. Thanks for having me! It was fun.”

Shaunte, thank you SO much for creating for us today. Be sure to check out Shaunte’s blog for some pretty great humor (really. She’s hilarious and can make you feel like your life is completely normal!), along with an abundance of crafty inspiration, including her thoughts and some additional layouts created with today’s steal by My Mind’s Eye.

Check in tomorrow as our rockstar blog week keeps on a comin’! Tomorrow is our March guest Mid Week Mojo sketcher here at ScrapbookSteals, and once again, W-O-W!

Teresa Collins Spring Fling | Monday Card Madness #73

If you’re like me and are counting down the days until warmer weather, then today’s steal, the brand new CHA release, Spring Fling by Teresa Collins, might be just what the doctor ordered! Beautiful butterflies, poppies, gems and buttons are sure to make any paper crafting project a breath of fresh air.

As some of you know, we recently finished up another round of card swapping here at ScrapbookSteals. Not too long ago I was ooohing and ahhhing over a card that one of our crafty fans, Kelly Marks had posted on our Facebook fan page. Imagine my delight when that card showed up for the card swap!

I sheepishly have to admit. I kind of kept that card for myself, being as I loved it the moment I saw it and wanted to base this week’s card sketch off of the design.

I love the simplicity of the design and thought it worked perfectly with the patterns and embellishments in the Spring Fling collection.

Thanks so much Kelly for being our Monday Card Madness inspiration. :) I’ll do my best to not hoard the card and send it back out to brighten someone’s day!

I’m sure you know that It’s truly been an exciting weekend here at ScrapbookSteals and our fan page is on fire with inspiration from our online crop on Friday night. Be sure to stop by and take a peek at all of the amazing creations, and also be sure to have your February Monday Card Madness creations posted and linked to one of the Monday Card Madness blog postings by this upcoming Friday at 11:59 pm MST,  in order to be eligible for our monthly giveaway!

I’ll be seeing you tomorrow with another fantastic tutorial for How To’sday!
