Lime Twist

Lime Twist Mega Paper Pack | Monday Card Madness #65

Happy New Years everyone! Hopefully everyone had a lovely and safe New Years Eve.

This year we are starting things off with a bang here at ScrapbookSteals with the My Minds Eye Lime Twist Mega Paper Pack. What’s better than a little sampling of Lime Twist from all of the different Lime Twist collections, all wrapped up into one steal? Yeah. Not much!

I don’t know about you but the new year always gives me a sense of renewal and with that sense of renewal comes the desperate desire to de-clutter and simplify. For that very reason, today’s sketch represents what I hope to accomplish in 2012 in my everyday life, simplicity.

So often I need to remember that less is more, and I definitely achieved that with this weeks card sketch, featuring not much more than three, 2″ circles cut out of the different Lime Twist collections, with a quick zig-zag stitch to hold them down.

I applaud all of you that took on my 2011 challenge to send joy.  I know sending my weekly cards to many of you definitely blessed my life and made me feel just a little bit closer to you. I plan on continuing my efforts and brightening someones day, one card at a time and hope that you too will join me in the effort.

Now it’s time to announce the winner of the December random drawing.  Michelle Duffy, you are our lucky winner! Thanks so much for participating in creating cards and for sharing your talents with us.

If you will please send an email with your address to, we will be happy to send out a little something to hopefully help keep that card making happening.

Once again, HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Jillibean Soup, Cream of Mushroom | Mid Week Mojo

Topaz Club — Layout 10

Wow! Another ten weeks have whisked by and here we are at the final installment of our Topaz Club series. To celebrate we have a new manufacturer to the ScrapbookSteals family once again — welcome Jillibean Soup! I love today’s steal from the Jillibean Soup, Cream of Mushroom collection.

This collection is so rich and fun and perfect for fall. I was so excited when I realized how perfectly it would work with some very recent photos that I took of my son on one of our day dates.

I absolutely adore the trims that come with this collection. They make the perfect addition to the page along with the Journaling Sprouts.

I’m quite certain that this is one collection that I will be excited to pull out and use again.

Now before I get into the details of the exciting Topaz prize which has been brought to us by Kiwi Lane Designs, I will announce the winner of the Topaz #9 random drawing.

This week’s lucky winner is Kassandra Missen. Not only do I love this layout but I am incredibly touched that the sketch inspired her enough to create a page out of chronological order.

Kassandra, if you will send an email to, we will be happy to send a prize out to you!

Now for the scoop on the big Topaz prize.

Kiwi Lane Designs has graciously sponsored the Topaz prize by sending us these three templates to give to one of you!

  • Tiny Sweetheart
  • 12″ Abbie Road
  • Wildflower

To add a little fruity kicker to the combination we are throwing in a combination prize pack of Lime Twist by My Mind’s Eye for an approximate total prize value of $60.00! What better combination than to use a little Kiwi Lane Design love on some brand new My Mind’s Eye papers? Right. I didn’t think there was a better combo!

In order to win this amazing prize package here is what you need to do.

  1. Complete all 10 topaz layouts. Don’t forget that Topaz #10 must be completed and posted by 11:59 PM MST on Monday, October 3rd.
  2. Make sure all 10 topaz layouts are posted somewhere online.
  3. Provide a link to your creations in the “Totally Topaz” blog post. This can be a link to a gallery hosting all of your creations, or individual links. Just make sure that everything is listed in one post.

If you are new to our Mid Week Mojo series, you can find all of the fantastic details here. Also, as we continue week to week, bookmark this page for your quick reference to Mid Week Mojo links.

Good luck everyone! May the scrappy mojo be with you.
