My Little Shoebox | Mid Week Mojo

Opal Club — Layout 5

I positively love guest sketcher Wednesdays because I have the chance to see the amazing creations that come from one of you. Today we are honored with some pretty fantastic creations from one of our favorite Canadian friends, Cathryn Hanson.

I was on the computer one day when Kristy popped up in my chat window. “I’m dying here!” she said, then asked me if I had checked my email lately. I said I had. We were both confused! Some how the email she had sent asking if I would like to be a guest sketcher had disappeared. Needless to say, my answer was yes, yes, and YES!

Like previous guest sketchers I was thrilled and excited, but also a little worried. But when I found out I would be working with today’s steal, My Little Shoebox Harmony and Summer Breeze my mind was instantly racing with ideas. I love MLS! Both of these whimsical collections of scrappy goodness are adorable, and can be easily used for many different themes. After thinking about sketches and layouts I quickly started thinking about how perfect Summer Breeze would be for my granddaughter’s birthday theme because she loves birds. I remembered these cute little wooden bird houses I had come across while shopping for wedding décor with our dear friend and fellow scrapbooker Elizabeth. So, with all of that in mind, this is what I created.

Summer Breeze Collection

  • “So Smoochable”

  • Birdhouse Party Favors filled with Jelly Beans

  • Birthday Girl Picture Frame

  • Decorated Words

Not my original idea. I spotted these on the MLS website and couldn’t resist making them!

  • Congratulations  card

Harmony Collection

  • “You Amaze Me”

  • Konichee Wa!

I hope you will have as much fun with these incredible collections as I did. From the clear stamps to the mini alphabets and everything in between you can’t go wrong. Enjoy!

Thank you Kristy Lee, Lisa Mack and the Scrapbook Steals community for your inspiration every week and allowing me to share my creations. I am very excited to see how everyone makes these sketches their own.

Sticker Graffiti | Mid Week Mojo #36

Sticker Graffiti | Mid Week Mojo #36

I adore today’s steal, the Glitz rubon and sticker collections. I love being able to add some flair to my project without having to think too hard and today’s steal delivers that flair in a flash! I let the graffiti feeling of several of the collections be the drive behind my layout.

I thought it would be unique to combine lots of the different designs on the left hand side of my page to create my own graffiti wall.

I am also crazy about the little bits of bling that are on some of the Glitz stickers.

It’s a great use of multiple stickers and rubons, don’t you think?

In today’s steal there are also a bunch of stickers which are specific for titles. I love adding a title to my layout with absolutely zero effort.

Once again, you girls knocked it out of the park with last week’s creations. Every week you seem to truly go above and beyond and I can’t wait to see what you create using this week’s Mid Week Mojo.  To enter the random drawing, comment on this blog post with a link to your photo of this week’s Mojo page (a link to a photo from our Facebook fan page or personal blog) no later than Monday, April 4th at midnight.
