Miss Caroline

It’s April Blog Hop Time!

We had so much fun last month with our inaugural ScrapbookSteals.com blog hop that we decided to make this party a monthly event! Join in on the fun today as seven talented crafters take you on a tour of how to use today’s steal, the My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline 6×6 paper pads. If seeing eye candy from these seven ladies isn’t enough, we are excited to be giving away another $20 gift code to ScrapbookSteals.com to one lucky random winner.

Here’s the skinny on how it works. Stop by each of the designers’ blogs to see what crafty Miss Caroline creations they’ve made using this steal. Be sure to leave a comment at each stop along the way, since one lucky person leaving a comment on one of the 8 blogs (this includes this ScrapbookSteals blog posting), will receive a $20 gift code to use in the ScrapbookSteals store! Not a bad reward for taking a little “me” time on the weekend to gather some creative ideas, right?

So without further delay here’s the line up:

  1. ScrapbookSteals (You are here! Don’t forget to comment).
  2. Misty Buck (GO HERE NEXT!)
  3. Michelle Philippi
  4. Stephanie Umpleby
  5. Kerys Sharrock
  6. Jennifer McDermott
  7. Emily Lanham
  8. Brenda Smith

And now for some sneaky peeks to give you a little hint-a-roo as to what fantabulousness you are about to embark upon.

Have fun hopping, and remember you have until Sunday at 11:59 PM MST to drool over the creations and to leave your comment. A winner will be selected and announced on Tuesday in our How To’sday blog posting.

Happy hopping!

P.S. If you have interest in participating as a designer in an upcoming ScrapbookSteals Blog Hop, please send me an email to kristy@stealnetwork.com, with Blog Hop in the subject line. Have a lovely weekend. :)

My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline | Mid Week Mojo

Garnet – Layout 10

Can you believe that we have reached the end of yet another gem series in our Mid Week Mojo layout sketch series? It’s always an exciting thing to come to the end of another ten weeks, and what makes it even more exciting is that this weeks sketch is completed with today’s steal, two of the brand new collections by My Mind’s Eye, Miss Caroline.

I knew that I wanted to keep this week fairly simple as I’m sure that once you see what prize we are giving away for the Garnet series, there will be a bunch of you on the quest to catch up, so I settled on a one page layout about my Sarah.

My daughter Sarah is such a talented and beautiful young lady (do I sound like a proud mom or what?) On Monday night we were privileged to hear her perform at her clarinet recital. As I was shooting photos during her performance I realized how perfectly the Fiddlesticks and Dolled Up collections would work with the yellows and turquoises in the photos, and thus my layout was born.

My Mind’s Eye always does an amazing job with their embellishments, which bring the perfect finishing touches to a project. I think the twine and the stick pins are definitely my favorite!

And now for our weekly random winner! I absolutely loved seeing the interpretations of the twelve photo sketch from last week, and Sheryl Kloke layout was of no exception!

Garnet 9 Winner

Congrats Sheryl on being this week’s lucky random winner. If you will please send an email with your address to customerservice@stealnetwork.com we will get your Garnet #9 prize sent out to you.
