Pebbles Walnut Grove Collection | Mid Week Mojo

Amber – Week 6 of 10

New to Mid Week Mojo? Get started here!

Pebbles Walnut Grove Collection is such a bright, fun collection perfect for boys and girls! There are flowers, chevrons, plaid, and woodgrain patterns in a rich combination of reds, blues, yellows, pinks and grays. Mix and match the papers for whatever theme you want! The embellishments are pretty cool too! SO much fun to use – a great steal for everyone!

Here is this week’s sketch:

And here is my layout.

I love all of the brightly colored embellishmenats that come with this collection. There are lots of banners with title phrases on them, dimensional flowers and washi tape stickers. I switched out the button on this flower so that it would coordinate with the colors on my layout. That’s something I often do to ready-made embellishments – it just personalizes your layout at the same time.

Adding dimension and texture to scrapbooking layouts

Again, I used a dimensional flower in the opposite corner for some symmetry, and more washi tape stickers. Some of the washi tape has sentiments and phrases on them, which is perfect for adding that extra note.

I also used two of the tags in the collection I removed the top part of the tag and used them as the banner, along with two more dimensional stickers that I took apart! Makes for a cute banner, with some added faux stitching!

Fancy Pants Designs Blissful Blizzard Collection contains such great colors and patterns. From the soft blues and grays, deep reds and white, in a mixture of dots, snowflakes and stripes, it is the perfect collection to scrap all your cold and frosty winter photos. The collection also comes with a 12×12 sheet of white corrugated card and a 12×12 sheet of thick silver glitter paper for that added texture! It has some great die cuts and stickers to coordinate too – what more could you want?

Here is this week’s sketch from our talented Winter Design Team Member Bev Code:

And here is my layout. I decided to rotate the sketch quarter of a turn counter-clockwise to best fit my photos and the papers.

I am just loving the alphabet stickers in this collection! There are so many to choose from – all different colors and designs. I just had to use them for my journaling.

This collection includes lots of super cute papers, including this awesome silver glitter paper and white corrugated paper – I knew I just had to use it!

My Mind’s Eye Collectable Notable & Memorable | Mid Week Mojo

Amber – Week 1 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo? Get started here!

Welcome to a new Mid Week Mojo Series! Get ready for 10 weeks of inspiration and chances to win!

The My Mind’s Eye Collectable Notable & Memorable Collections are everything you would expect from My Mind’s Eye! The Notable collection is full of vibrant blues, greens, yellows and oranges, with fun label stickers, layered stickers and title cards to match! The Memorable collection is a much ‘Springy’ collection, with soft patterns and color combinations. It’s perfect collection to make you wish for warmer weather and blooming flowers!

Here is this week’s sketch:

Scrapbooking inspiration sketch challenge using My Mind's Eye Notable Collection

I just love the vibrant colors of this collection – the mix of patterns and colors just scream ‘fun!’ to me, so I wanted to create a fun layout!

Scrapbooking layout using My Mind's Eye Notable Collection

The first thing that jumped out at me in this collection was the bright orange photo frame sticker! I just love this and decided to use it highlight one of my photos. The photo inside the frame is 2.5″ x 2.5″ which fit one of my photo’s perfectly!

Scrapbooking layout using My Mind's Eye Notable Collection

I wanted to use as many of the colors and patterns as I could on this layout, but didn’t want it to look too fussy. Instead of adding layers to the layout, I decided to use a more haphazard grid formation. I used the banner and stitching, along with some ‘popped’ up stickers, for more texture and interest than the basic plain grid.

I used one of the title cards for my own title, but removed the orange sunburst from around the outside. Instead I hand stitched a chevron design in a lighter color, to highlight the title but not over-power it.

Carta Bella Paris Girl | Mid Week Mojo

Jade – Week 10 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo? Get started here!

Today’s steal, the Carta Bella Paris Girl Collection, is perfect for this time of year! It has all the colors and patterns for capturing your favorite Valentine’s Day photos. It is also perfect for those little (and big) girls out there. Today’s guest designer, Kassandra LePage, shows us just how super cute this collection is, with a great sketch to inspire us all!

• • • • •

When I was asked to be a guest sketcher at first I was shocked then so thrilled! Then came the ‘can I do this?’ There have been so many amazing scrapbookers on here, I didn’t think I could compare. But I got to thinking everyone has such different styles and strengths, what did it really matter?
When I found out I got to work with Carta Bella’s Paris Girl, I was even more excited because this line is so gorgeous. When I got it in the mail I was even more amazed with the texture and quality of the paper. So I really wanted to feature the paper in my LO. So here is what I came up with.

And here is the sketch:
Mid Week Mojo sketch Jade #10
I titled it ‘My Love, My Valentine’ and put the letters on all the rosette’s i made. Let me tell you, making all those rosette’s took along time but I think they really show off the paper well.

I love doilies and they always remind me of Valentines, so I wanted to add one in.

I thought the ticket stickers that came with the set had such cute sayings on them, that I just had to use them as well.

The 6×6 pad of paper is the same quality, and is also stunning! I just had to make a card with it! Here’s what I came up with.

So that’s it for me, thanks for having me as a guest sketcher, I had so much fun working with this paper. I look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with!

Simple Stories Summer Fresh Collection | Mid Week Mojo

Jade – Week 9 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo? Get started here!

The Simple Stories Summer Fresh Collection is everything you would expect from a Simple Stories collection! It has fun bright colors and patterns, lots of quotes and title borders, ready-made journaling card elements in varying sizes, and photo mats and border strips – all you need to make that perfect scrapbook layout, mini album, card or…well…anything really!

Here is this week’s sketch:

Mid Week Mojo Sketch Jade #9

And here is my layout. I loved the sunburst that this Simple Stories has in it’s journaling cards and headers, so I copied it and made it bigger! I fussy cut a lot of the embellishments from the 12×12 papers, added stitching and washi tape, buttons and brads. It all went perfectly with the Summer photo:

Scrapbooking layout using Simple Stories Summer FreshHere is a close up of the stitching. I hand pierced and hand stitched on this layout, adding coordinating colored buttons, just to give more texture and interest to the page.

Adding dimension and texture to scrapbooking layouts

My title was fussy cut from one of the 12×12 sheets, and then lightly curled on the edges.

Adding dimension and texture to scrapbooking layouts

I wanted a small banner under my border, and so fussy cut this from another 12×12 sheet. Why spend the time creating my own banner when Simple Stories have done it all for me??

Adding dimension and texture to scrapbooking layouts

I used a couple of strips of washi tape to ‘set’ my journaling/meaning onto. This was fussy cut from the sheets, I added extra pen stitching and a brad to the flower center.
