Time 4 All Hallows Eve by Suzanne

Happy Halloween everyone! Suzanne here with a Halloween page of my favorite little witch, Miss Macie. This page uses the Lost & Found Halloween collection. I love that the graphics are primarily on kraft paper, with a touch of glitter thrown in to celebrate the spooky yet elegant occasion!

One of my favorite papers in the collection is the Hallows Music patterned paper. I used this as the backdrop for my page. I primarily pulled my embellishments from the chipboard elements and the 12x12 accessory sheet. The result is a spooky page that came together fairly quickly!

Supplies: Lost and Found Halloween:Hallows Skull Doily patterned paper,Hallows Music patterned paper,Hallows Halloween Ads patterned paper, Hallows Pattern patterned paper,decorative brads,12x12 accessory sheet,12x12 chipboard

As I was designing this page,  I wanted to create a few bold embellishments. You can see one at the top of the page, and one underneath the clock embellishment. I also pulled out my flower dies and Cricut to create a few unique embellishments.
Suzanne Sergi for MME
A little quirk of mine is that once I find a stamp or diecut that I love, you will see it on many of my pages and scrappy projects.

For instance...I discovered this big die cut clock on one of my Cricut cartridges. I recently used it on a mini album and thought it was perfect to be added onto this page.

For the center of the clock, I misted a white doily and used the witch circle diecut from the 12x12 accessory sheet.

Of course, I added two simple details.

First, I ran the die cut through my printer to add part of my title, and then the final detail was to add texture with one of my treasured embossing folders.

The chipboard owl accent was adhered to the center of the clock hands, and two diecut flowers added the perfect final touch.

Suzanne Sergi for MMEHere you can see I turned to two of my favorite dies from Tim Holtz. One is a flower die that is just perfect for Halloween pages.

I layered a few flowers cut from the Hallows Halloween Ads patterned paper. Then I layered a smaller flower cut from vellum, and embellished the center of the cluster with a brad.

The second diecut is the bold label (I added a touch of embossing).

I pulled the rest of my title from the 12x12 chipboard sheet and added the All Hallows Eve label right on top of the label diecut.

Off to the left of the page, you can see another chipboard element, a pumpkin that is simply embellished with twine and a small tag.

Thank you for stopping by the My Mind's Eye Blog!Wishing you and your family a very Happy All Hallow's Eve!

Stamps+Mini Canvases with Tina

Hi MME fans! Hope you are safe and dry this Tuesday morning. Tina here today with a different way to use your MME stamps on your layouts.

Lately I have been slightly obsessed (okay, I'll admit it - I'm super obsessed) with these mini canvases by Artist Loft.  I have been trying new ways to incorporate them into my projects and the layout I would like to share with you today  demonstrates one of those ways.

Tina Walker for MME
Supplies: The Sweetest Thing-Tangerine:Sunny patterned paper,Woodsy patterned paper,Greetings patterned paper,6x6 paper pad,decorative tape,stickers,tiny word stickers,layered stickers,chipboard elements,stamps,decorative brads,die cut journaling card;Misc:Jenni Bowlin alphabet,The Twinery twine,adhesives,Artist Loft mini canvas panels,spray mist,embossing powder,linen canvas paper,embossing ink

I started by applying a coat of gesso to my mini canvas to prep it for the spray mist. Next, I stamped several images to the canvas (with embossing ink), then applied white embossing powder. 

Tina Walker for MME
Once this was cool, I sprayed several coats of spray mist till I got the color I wanted.

To finish off my mini canvas, I tied twine and adhered a layered sticker and tiny word sticker to the canvas.

Tina Walker for MME
I really love how the mini canvas looks on my layout and the dimension it adds.
Tina Walker for MME
Special Note:  I used the Mini Canvas PANELS - these are super thin and do not add as much dimension to your layouts as a 'normal' canvas.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Mini Albums with Monika...Gratitude Journal (and a Giveaway!!!)

Hey everyone! This is Monika and I'm here with the November edition of my series Mini Albums With Monika.

 For the past several years, I have been keeping a Gratitude Journal. Several of my journals have been making the rounds on Pinterest, but if you're unfamiliar with what a Gratitude Journal is, it's very simple. I construct a mini book made from my pretty paper scraps adding in journaling spots and other interesting bits of paper items.

Then, each day, I record a short sentence about something in my day that made me smile or reminded me of the blessings in my life. Granted, there are also days when it is difficult to see goodness because I am frustrated, so I have also recorded those thoughts as well. And if I skip a day or two, that's okay. 

Know this, you will be doubly blessed when you read over your grateful thoughts at a later date. I have looked back over my journal from this year and I recorded thoughts that I had forgotten about until I reread them.

That alone is worth the few moments I take to slow down and think about what made me smile that day.
Monika Wright for MME
Supplies:Lost & Found 3-Ruby: Doily patterned paper,chipboard elements,sticker accessory sheet,stamps, decorative tape,6x6 pad;Lost & Found 3-Oliver: Yellow Honey patterned paper, Mixed Floral patterned paper,Collage patterned paper,6x6 pad,stamps,adornments,decorative tape,chipboard elements; Lucky in Love:patterned papers,6x6 pad;4x6 Accessories Pad;All is Bright-6x6 paper pad;Winter Wonderland:6x6 paper pad;Six by Six 2: My Favorite Things, Quilting Bee, Come Away with Me, A Mother's Love, School Daze

Now let the fun begin! I began by going through my paper collection and searching out scraps, then quickly moved on to my larger sheets of paper that had interesting design elements already incorporated into the design or that had a fun pattern on one side and a rather subdued pattern on the other side allowing my journaling to be seen.

Monika Wright for MME

You'll also want to grab several handfuls of journaling cards, tags and other items that can be adhered to those pages that have an overall design that complicate journaling directly on your patterned paper. 

Low on journaling cards? Let's make your own!
Page 2Monika Wright for MMEYou could use almost any notebook to record your grateful thoughts, sure, but my reasoning is that with a journal as cute and inspiring as this one, who wouldn't want to sit down and flip through all that gorgeous paper to write?
Monika Wright for MMEMake plans to raid your paper stash and begin creating your journal today!
Here are some photos to inspire you to create. :)
Monika Wright for MME Monika Wright for MMEAnd now the part you have all been waiting for...I'm thrilled to share with you that My Mind's Eye is giving away this very Gratitude Journal to one lucky commenter. All you have to do is share a simple thought with us of one thing you're grateful for in your life.

I'll start...How lovely it is to have a husband that prepares breakfast each and every Sunday for our family...his biscuits are WAY better than mine ever hoped to be!

Contest is open internationally...comments remain open until Monday,November 5. One winner will be chosen and posted on Tuesday,November 6.
I'm so grateful that you stopped by to read today. Hope you are staying safe and warm in this crazy weather.
Monika
P.S. I've created a PDF for all of you with some Gratitude Journal tips and ideas. Just save and print or drag and drop....enjoy!

Finding Inspiration

Happy Friday everyone! This is Tamara and today I'm here to talk about inspiration.

The days here are getting cooler and nights are getting chilly.  I figured it was time to pull out some warm and sunny photos from our fun summer days.

I was browsing through the fabulous November issue of “Coastal Living” Magazine and was inspired by two pages.  The first was from an article about a designer and her favorite coastal paint colors.  I loved the yellow, aqua blue and orang-red that the designer mentioned.

Inspirationone
Of course I had to use the new The Sweetest Thing “Happy” collection that uses all of those wonderful colors.  The decorative tape even has the same chevron pattern as table in the photo!
16 Cousins So Happy Together
 Supplies:The Sweetest Thing-Tangerine:Greetings patterned paper,Wishes patterned paper,Beam patterned paper,layered stickers,die cut title,decorative brads,decorative tape;The Sweetest Thing-Lavender:Impression patterned paper,label stickers;The Sweetest Thing-Honey:Best patterned paper, wood button;Lush:alphabet;Misc:red machine thread, brown ink and pen, pop dots, adhesive

My second inspiration came from the “Nautical Notes” page.  I loved how the stationary was arranged in a random order, like pictures on a wall.  I also liked the white around the edges of the envelopes and cards, almost like picture frames.

Inspirationtwo
In my design I left a white border around all of my photos. A great thing about smaller photos – you can fit a lot on a page – I used 14!

16 Cousins closeup
We might have not made it the ocean this year, but I had some great pictures of cousins playing at Jackson Lake in the Grand Tetons National Forest.  They have a fun coastal/beachy feel...even though we were in the mountains!

I hope you enjoyed my post today and that YOU will find inspiration today. Have a wonderful weekend!

Lost and Found Halloween layout

If you have been a follower of my blog for a while, you know that I take Halloween pictures BEFORE Halloween!  The kids are excited to be in their costumes and aren’t (in their nicest voices) asking you to stop taking pictures so they can get to the task at hand and begin Trick or Treating.  It works out great for our family!

Today on Good Things Utah, I shared how to create this layout.  This was the last layout I created for CHA-Summer.  I used the delicious Lost & Found Halloween collection.  The beautiful collection I used to create my Halloween mantel.  I was tired and not sure how to keep the design mojo going.  Thanks to the beautiful designs, it wasn’t hard and this is one of my all-time favorite layouts.  I just love the way it came together.

Wouldn’t it be fun to display THIS year’s Halloween costumes in your home on this beautiful layout?  Take you pictures early and/or make the layout early.  You will ease the stress and increase the enjoyment of the upcoming holiday!

Ink Splattering Tutorial with Tina

Hi, Tina here today with a super easy tutorial on how to create totally AWESOME home decorations!

IMG_0944
I love getting messy with paints, sprays, and inks.  I love the look of splatters and mists, and am always looking for ways to create cool and fun artsy backgrounds for my projects.

I used the following technique on layouts and it creates a great splatter look, but I thought it would be fun to experiment on some scrapbook studio wall art.

Step One
Gesso several mini (2 in x 2 in) canvas panels.
IMG_0932
Step Two
This is where the fun starts! Create an ink splatter using the following technique.Let dry. 

Step Three
Layer chipboard elements, buttons, enamel dots, stickers, brads, or doilies to create a visual statement.

Step Four
Layer over splattered canvases and place on patterned paper. 
IMG_0960
Step Five
Frame.  I usually leave the glass out of the frame because of the 3D dimension of the piece.

IMG_0958
And here is another project I did using this technique!

IMG_0952
IMG_0954
What ways can you think of using ink splatters and/or mini canvases on your next project.? I would LOVE to see them!

Fall Cards with Danni

Hello!  Danni here with you today to share a couple of ideas to create some "fall-themed" cards with supplies you have on hand. 

I really love the colors and patterns found in the new Six by SIx 2 pad "Come Away with Me".  Originally designed as a travel theme, I found papers that work beautifully for a rich, deep fall themed card or two and know you will too. 

I absolutely love the blues, reds and yellows in this pad, they are so deep in color and have the perfect autumn warmth and feel to them.
Mme 6 x 6 come away with meOn my first card, Hello Fall, I wanted to create some see through windows to hold my leaves, like when you look out your windows and see the leaves "falling" all around you.  I used a cellophane bag for mine, but you could use any clear transparency or envelope.
Fall card mme
See how the cellophane covered circles make you feel like you are looking through windows?  So much fun to see the leaves "fall" through the window.

On my second card, Fall Hello, I wanted to stitch a tree and adhere lots of colorful, rich leaves to it as though they were in the process of falling from the tree.
Fall card mme 2
The "hello" sentiment from the Hello Stamps from The Sweetest Thing fit perfectly around the circles or up the tree trunk.  With the ease of the acrylic stamps, you can "curve" your sentiment to fit almost any location you create for them.

Fall card mme 2 detailsSupplies for both cards:  Six by Six 2:Come Away with Me pad;The Sweetest Thing:Hello Stamp set;Misc:Martha Stewart Maple leaf punch, machine stitching, cellophane clear envelopes, Papertrey Ink Heart die (butterfly)

As you can see, there are lots of rich patterns and colors to choose from in this ONE pad from the Six by Six 2 release.  If you create some fall cards with one of your pads, we'd love to see them!

happy creating?

Shelly Takes the October Challenge!

Have you entered our October stamping challenge? We sure hope so! It's an easy way to have lots of fun and you could win an entire collection of your choice!

If you missed the challenge, you can find it here.

Shelly made a page for the stamp challenge this month and here is what she came up with!

Happy Halloween by Shelly Jaquet

2012.10.08-StampChallenge-01
Supply List:Lost and Found Halloween:Hallows Halloween Ads patterned paper,Hallows Dot patterned paper,decorative brads,stamps,diecut sheet,chipboard;Winter Wonderland:Christmas Trees patterned paper;Six by Six Two:Mother's Love paper pad;The Sweetest Thing-Bluebell:stamps;Indie Chic-twine;Misc:Prima chalk ink,VersaFine,Marvy Uchida tag punch;corner rounder,adhesive,computer

Shelly says: When I decided to do the October challenge, it was really a "challenge" for me! I am not much of a stamper,so I really tried to push myself to try a few different things.

I used a mask of the Marvy Uchida giga tag punch to create a stamped tag using the stamps from The Sweetest Thing Bluebell.Then I created a border with the "creepy.crawly.spooky.scary" stamp from Lost and Found Halloween.Last but not least...I simply tamped the bird and spider web as accents to my page.

2012.10.08-StampChallenge-04

Next, I created a background with the stamps from All is Bright.

2012.10.08-StampChallenge-05
I also used the chevron arrow stamp as a banner.

2012.10.08-StampChallenge-06

I had so much fun with this challenge, even though it took me out of my comfort zone. I can't wait to see what you all come up with!

Shelly

Pinspiration Friday

Pinspirationfriday
Happy Friday! We are so glad you stopped by today, it's Pinspiration Friday! Every day, we scour the Internet for inspiring MME projects. We find your work on your blogs, through our FB page,and in online galleries. We pin the ones that inspire us most!

Then once a month we challenge our designers to use one of your creations as inspiration for a layout or card.

This month Tina and Danni are joining us. Here's what they came up with. Enjoy and have a lovely, creative weekend!

 

Inspiration Piece: Anabelle O'Malley

92323861081989927_pHvnQ9rU_c
Tina's version:

IMG_1005Supplies: All is Bright:Christmas Tag patterned paper, Joy patterned paper,Happy Day patterned paper,twine,layered stickers,decorative buttons,chipboard elements;Six by Six Two:A Mother's Love paper pad;Misc:Pink Paislee wood alphabet,adhesive,sewing machine and thread,ink,K&Co stamp

Tina says:For my Pinspiration lift this month, I am lifting the AMAZING and SUPER TALENTED Anabelle O'Malley, and this incredible layout, found on MME's Inspiring Pages and Cards.

I love the linear (across the page) design of this layout, and how she used circles to create little areas of color and visual POP.

I wanted to use the same linear design, but 'change it up a bit', SO, I swapped circles for squares.  I stitched the squares down, layering several patterned papers within each other.

I also expanded the washi tape area on the bottom of Anabelle's layout, adding several chipboard elements and punched medallion shapes.
IMG_1010So I would like to see how observant y'all are.  Can you pick out the new Christmas collection 'All Is Bright' in my layout?   By hiding any Christmas/Holiday reference and by mixing it with the Six by Six paper, it blends perfectly and you can really stretch your Holiday paper collection into non-Holiday projects.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a great one!

Inspiration Piece: Jeni Allen

92323861082356351_lEM9Pw55_c
Danni's take:Every month, I sign up for these fun posts because I get to scroll through the newest "pins" on our MME Inspiring Cards and Pages page and I always leave incredibly inspired to create!  This month, there were amazing layouts and cards and it was once again, so, so hard to choose.  I could've closed my eyes and pointed to a "pin" and created several cards inspired by so many of the elements in the pages or cards, maybe next month, I'll give that a try....wink.

Today, I selected this amazing card from Jeni Allen.  Jeni's blog My Stampin' Spot is always filled with all kinds of inspiration and fun, new ideas for stamping and designing gorgeous cards.  In full disclosure, I am on the CupCards to Go design team with Jeni, but that is NOT why I chose her card.  I fell in love with this card when we worked with the CupCards to Go August kit and then I saw Stephanie, too, had "pinned" it on the MME boards, so I thought it an ideal time to share why this card inspires me so.  Every time I see this card I fall in love all over again.  I love the circle elements, all the patterns in the card, the "white" bouncing the patterns, the "little" details, it's just incredible and I think it will definitely inspire you too.

I decided to create three cards this month because I had so many ideas with this design and wanted to play with a more literal sketch idea and a "details" inspired idea.  For my first two cards, I stayed pretty true to the sketch and literal interpretation.  I chose to use my MME Six by Six 2 "Gnome Sweet Gnome" paper pad and die-cut embellies to create my cards today.

Mme gnome sweet gnomeThe first card I created was inspired by the beautiful patterns on white in Jeni's card.
Hello bird danni reid
As you can see, you don't have to use the patterned papers for the circles, you can use white circles and dry emboss them for added detail.  I also cut the die-cuts from the
6 x 6 Gnome Sweet Gnome pad to add additional details to my card and sentiments.


On my next card, I chose to add lots of fun patterned papers, including a patterned paper circle spray, because there are so many fun patterns in the Gnome Sweet Gnome 6 x 6 pad.  I really love the variety of patterned papers and while I only used one pattern on my circles, I used several different patterns on my card in general.
Hello card danni reid
I stamped the sentiment right onto the bracket die-cut that comes in the pad and added lots of fun details using the various die-cuts.  I love the green gingham patterned paper so much for this particular design because bouncing little die-cut elements off of the background paper was so much fun.  Isn't the "little bird" just the cutest in the die-cut sheet?  Love, love him!  I added stamped sentiments on these cards, everything else comes from the Gnome Sweet Gnome 6 x 6 pad.


On the last card, I really wanted a more relaxed interpretation, one I could use for cards with a slightly larger focal embellishment and yet still have the circles and fun design as Jeni's gorgeous card.  On this card, I really wanted to play with the sweet Gnome (who just makes me so darn happy) so I decided to make him a "circle focal" along with lots of other of the fun die-cuts from the pad.
Hello gnome danni reid
As you can see, the Gnome and tree trunk were my focal die-cuts but there were lots of other "circle elements" (flowers, circles and butterfly) found in the pad to incorporate into this very fun design of Jeni's gorgeous card.  This was a more liberal approach to the overall design, but still being inspired by the design, made this card not only relatively quick to create, it could be duplicated relatively easily for cards with larger embellishment focals and not uniform circle embellishments.

I hope I have given you some ideas and maybe tricks too, to create more cards out of one inspiration piece and yet have a variety of different-looking cards when you are finished.
Happy Creating?

Scrapbooking Halloween and Fall with Jana

Hi, everyone! Jana Eubank here.
Fall is my favorite time of year! There are so many opportunities to pull out the camera and record family memories! Whether it's playing in the fall leaves, taking fall drives, wearing crazy Halloween costumes, cooking cozy foods in the kitchen, or gathering together in gratitude with family and friends, I bet you have a lot of pictures to scrap this time of year as well.
 
I have a couple of seasonal layouts to share with you today. One is a soft and subtle autumn page and the other is a bold and bright Halloween page.
 
 
When scrapping fall photos, we typically reach for papers with the same colors of the autumn leaves falling from the trees . . . reds, golds, oranges, yellow, and brown. For these photos I decided to take a different approach. First, I began with the color of the leaves in my photos ... yellow! I pulled out The Sweetest Thing Bluebell collection. This collection caught my eye with its color palette of soft gold, neutral gray, cream, and blue.
JanaEubank_MyMindsEye_Remember1
Supplies:The Sweetest Thing-Bluebell:Bouquet patterned paper, Meadow patterned paper, Journal patterned paper,label stickers,layered stickers,chipboard elements,die cut title,buttons,decorative brads,stickers;The Sweetest Thing-Lavender:Impression patterned paper;Misc:brown distressing ink,paper piercer,needle,embroidery floss,computer and printer,adhesive/trimmer

I began by layering several of the neutral papers together in vertical strips. Next, I matted my photos with a soft woodgrain paper (from the Lavender collection). I matted my focal point photo with a soft golden floral.
JanaEubank_MyMindsEye_Remember2
The doilies and buttons in this collection have a homespun feeling about them ... perfect for the cozy fall season. I used a layered doily accent from the decorative brads and a layered doily sticker from the layered stickers.
I finished off the cozy feeling of this page by stitching on a few chipboard buttons and adding handstitching to the title block.
JanaEubank_MyMindsEye_Remember3
This next page is almost a complete opposite from the autumn page. The colors and patterns of the fall page almost blend together, while the bold colors and patterns of this Halloween page, are spunky and attention-grabbing.
 
 
The two papers that first caught my eye in the Lost & Found Halloween collection were the black and cream stripes of the Hallows Skull Doily Paper, and the orange glittery flowers of the Hallows Patterned Paper. I combined these two together and then added a pop of color with the green polka dotted paper from the Winter Wonderland collection. I love adding an unexpected pop of color to my pages. It really livens things up!
 
JanaEubank_MyMindsEye_Oct31st1
Supplies:Lost and Found Halloween:Skull Doily patterned paper,Newsprint patterned paper,Hallows patterned paper,glittered accessories sheet,chipboard accessories,decorative brads,6x6 paper pad,stamps;Winter Wonderland:Christmas Trees patterned paper;Misc:cardstock,distressing ink,paper piercer,black ink,computer and printer,adhesive,trimmer

I loved this combination but thought I might want to add another "restful" layer to give the eye a break, so I added a layer of Hallows Newsprint Paper behind my photo. Next, I wanted to add something to the upper right corner of the page. I used the spider web stamp from the clear stamp set. How great is this stamp?! I can see myself adorning the corners of every Halloween project I create this year with this cute stamp!
JanaEubank_MyMindsEye_Oct31st2
To keep the skull chipboard element from feeling TOO creepy on this page of my sweet kids, I added a punched circle of 6 x 6 polka dot pattern paper behind it. Polka dots always make everything a little more happy and friendly,wouldn't you agree?
JanaEubank_MyMindsEye_Oct31st3
Fall is my favorite time of year.It is full of warmth, coziness and family memories that deserve to be in your scrapbooks and My Mind's Eye has the perfect supplies to help you get those memories into your books. Happy scrapping!

Laurel Part Two

Today we are welcoming back Laurel Seabrook, our October guest designer. We were blown away by the projects Laurel sent us, and we know you will be too!

Happy Tuesday and enjoy!

Smile mini album

Supplies:The Sweetest Thing-Honey:Best patterned paper,Damask patterned paper,Found patterned paper,Bouquet patterned paper,Special patterned paper,Notable patterned paper,Flawless patterned paper,Peppy patterned paper,Cheerful patterned paper,layered stickers,chipboard elements,decorative brads,die cut title;Misc:Close to My Heart album,twine,sewing machine and thread,Unity stamps,ink,ribbon,twine,adhesive

Laurel says:

My girls were not happy when I asked them to go do this photo shoot.  They figured it would be embarrasing.  However they finally obliged and I am glad that they did!  I figured this year was photo worthy since we had a brand new high school built. 
Both of my girls get to attend, my oldest in her last year and my youngest in her first year and thus the only year they are together as high schoolers.  I figured it called for a photo shoot.
 
Whenever I create a mini album, I try to keep something continuous throught the pages.  In this case I stitched on each page and tried to incorporate some black accent, either twine or stamping.

Supplies: Winter Wonderland:Christmas Trees patterned paper,Stripes patterned paper,Polka Dots patterned paper,Flakes patterned paper,Tags patterned paper,Twine ,decorative brads,buttons,chipboard;Misc:adhesive,trim,jingle bells,felt,snowflake punch,computer

Laurel says:I love going out to garage sales and thrift shops looking for things that I will be able to alter.  I got both of these wooden items for next to nothing and as soon as I saw the Winter Wonderland Collection I knew that it would be perfect. 

Both of these went together very quickly and I love how the addition of the felt to the stocking looks and feels.

Both pieces were just basecoated pieces of wood.  The stocking had a folk art type of painting on it.  I cut out the pieces to fit, adhered some felt and the sentiment, stitched then adhered them to the wooden piece.  Finally I adhered the snowflake and then wrapped and tied the twine and bells.

The tree was just a green basecoated tree and base.  I painted the piece with white paint.  Then I just traced the pattern paper and adhered it.  I added some faux snow to the base then added the chipboard pieces, twine, buttons and decorative brad to the top.  So very easy!

Laurel-thank you so very much for sharing your creativity with us this month. We loved what you sent us!
See you all tomorrow!

Introducing Our October Guest Designer!

Please help extend a warm welcome to Laurel Seabrook! Laurel is our October guest designer. :)

DSC_0076-copy

We noticed we were pinning many of Laurel's projects. She caught our eye by loving MME and consistently sharing beautiful projects on our Facebook page. We are so glad she is hanging out with us this month!

Here's a little bit about Laurel:

Laurel Seabrook lives in Canada with her family.  She started scrapbooking 13 years ago although she has been scrapbooking in some way or another all of her life.  Laurel describes her style as clean and simple with added bits of layering and doo dads. You can see Laurel's work in Paper Crafts magazine. She is also on the Pebbles and Jillibean Soup design teams.

Q:What did you have the most fun working with?

A: I had the most fun working with the The Sweetest Thing Honey collection this time as I love the colors and patterns in it.  That bold flower paper is just gorgeous.
 
Q:What is your all time favorite MME collection? 
A:It is a tough choice as to my all time favorite MME... I have two that I really loved On the Bright Side and Follow Your Heart.  I found both of these so easy and fun to work with and if I have to pick one I would have to say Follow Your Heart Be Amazing would be it.  I really loved it and I had a few of my projects picked up for publication with it!

Laurel will be with us today and tomorrow, she has so much inspiration to share so we hope you will be back!

Here is what she is sharing today.

Laurel says:I am really loving the negative die cut trend right now so I like to incorporate them when I can.  I have used it as part of my title and for a little butterfly die cut at the top. I LOVE the bold flower paper in this collection it is so beautiful.

Laurel says:I love making my Christmas cards ahead of time as the month of December is busy enough as it is I just want to be able to mail the cards not make them too!  I created this card so easily as the colors and patterns of the Winter Wonderland collection are just so fun and happy!

As a finishing touch I tied on some ribbon and added a dimensional sticker!

Laurel says:I love the doodle feel to some of the papers in this collection, they just add a bit of fun to the collection. 
I used another negative die cut title, punched some of the edges with a notebook style punch and fussy cut some of the flowers from the patterned paper to add as embellishments.I am kind of sad that my oldest daughter is in grade 12 this year... she may leave us for university or college next fall... where has the time gone?!

Thank you so much for your lovely projects, Laurel.We can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve for tomorrow!

Mixed Media with Karen...Stamping on Watercolor Paper.

This is Karen, back for the October Mixed Media page. This month, I wanted to try something different. I took a watercolor paper and used a bunch of our stamps to create  flowers. I didn't overthink it. I just stamped.

As you can see some of them didn't come out perfectly but I didn't worry. I just stamped along the edges and added a few butterflies. It's fun to stamp some of the flowers so they look like they're going off the edge. It gives the piece a bigger feel.

Karen_mme_oct_stamping1
I used a water-proof pen to draw over some of the parts the ink had missed. Then I decided what my sentiment was going to be. I wrote the word "life" and stamped the rest of my title using a mix of My Mind's
Eye stamps.

Karen_mme_oct_stamping2
Then I started coloring. I used my Tombow dual-tip markers. These are watercolor markers so when used on watercolor paper, they react to water.

Again, I didn't over-think it. I just colored, had fun and reminded myself again and again that the goal was not perfection but fun and joy. I wanted to focus on enjoying the process.

Life is often about the journey and so is art. If you have fun along the way, the end product doesn't even matter as much. So remember to enjoy.

Karen_mme_oct_stamping3
After I'd colored the flowers and watered the ink, I decided to draw a blue border on my page. I used a lot of water to then pull the color from the edges all the way into the page. I added a few more stamps for some background texture and double-stitched my border.

And I was done!
Karen_mme_oct_stamping_doneSupplies:The Sweetest Thing:Hello stamps,Remember stamps;All is Bright:stamps;Follow Your Heart:Be Happy Stamps,Be Amazing Stamps;Kraft Funday:Everyday Fun Stamps

And there it is. Thank you for letting me share my page and I hope you take some time this week to play with stamps and coloring. Coloring is not just for little kids!

Remember to be who you are and keep it imperfect. I hope you share your creations with me in the comments. I look forward to seeing them!

Halloween Treat Bags

Good morning, MME fans! Today we have a treat for you! Danni and Monika are here to share how to use My Mind's Eye for Halloween goodie bags.

Enjoy and happy Thursday!

Treat Bags by Danni Reid

Mme halloween treat bags danni reidMme halloween treat bags 2 danni reidSupplies: Lost and Found Halloween:layered stickers,patterned papers,die cut sheet,decorative brads;Misc:glassline bags,twine,sewing machine and thread

Danni says: When I decided to create Halloween treat bags, I wanted to create bags that showcased the layered stickers. I love the dimension each one of the stickers adds to a project.

Mme halloween treat bags danni reid details 3

I also love that you can create a lot of these in very little time because the dimension shines without a lot of layered papers or a sophisticated design.  This is really important when creating these bags for a class, or staff or neighbors, time is money as they say, and MME makes it so easy.

Mme halloween treat bags danni reid details 4
I especially love how cute this "Boo" banner is, the holes are big enough for the thicker twines, making it easy to create a banner that will really stand out.

Halloween Goodie Bags by Monika Wright

Supplies:Lost and Found Halloween:decorative brads, patterned papers,chipboard elements,stamps,die cut sheet;All is Bright:twine;Misc:kraft bags,shipping tag,kraft paper,ink,punches,adhesive


Monika says:Because I still have two kids in school, I'm able to have lots of fun creating treat bags for classroom parties. And with one girl in 4th grade, they can't be too cute...especially for the boys. Today I want to share with you how you can make your treat bags unique and spook-alicious, all using your MME stamps.

I began by pulling out all my scraps from the All Hallow's Eve mini book I created for you this month and started playing around.

First, I stamped on a small canvas bag and mini shipping tag, adding a decorative brad for a bit more fun.

IMG_6478

Since the crow stamp was on my stamping block anyway, I stamped it onto some patterned paper, punched it and adhered it to a metal rimmed tag attached to my gift bag with some twine. I also layered patterned paper and chipboard above the row of stamped pumpkins.

Do you see the "tissue paper" sticking out of the larger gift bag? That's thin kraft paper from the painting section of The Home Depot that I've stamped and then crinkled before adding to the bag.

MonikaWright_MME_StampedBags1

Using the Halloween word art, I repeatedly stamped the image onto my kraft bag and then an additional time as well so that I could punch it out and attach it to the bag flap with one of the decorative brads.
IMG_6468
No matter the size of the goody bags for your Halloween tricks or treats, MME has you covered!
Here, I've used some covered chipboard left over from the mini book, a decorative brad and a bit more stamping to share another way that scraps, stamps, chipboard and die cuts really are the perfect combination this Halloween!
IMG_6481
What will you be using to create your treat bags this year?

Lost and Found Party Decor with Suzanne

Happy Wednesday! This is Suzanne and today I'm here to share some Halloween party decor with you!

We are coming into my favorite part of the year! For today's party theme, I decided to create Halloween Party favors using kraft paper bags.
DownloadAfter seeing all the Halloween decorations at my local craft store, I was inspired to pull out the Lost & Found Halloween collection.
Download-1Note:I cut the bottom, and then stitched along the edge to seal the bag. To add texture, and a bit of spooky character to them, I embossed them with embossing folders. I also added a bit of ink on parts of the embossed areas.
Download-2A few of the patterned  papers were used to decorate the outside of the treat bags. I chose one diecut element from the accessory sheet for each of them. I then built my spooky details around each of the diecut elements.
Download-3Each bag is unique, and is filled with fun details using the decorative brads mixed with a few of my Halloween punches.
Download-4I also embellished test tubes that I picked up last season. I created a fun banner for the top of the tube, and created a decorative border across the middle of the tube.
Download-5I also added a stamping detail to the cork top by using the spider web image found on the Lost & Found stamps. The final detail is the spider hanging from a brad at the top. Fill the treat bags with Halloween Candy, and you have a party favor any person would love to receive on this magical day!
Download-6Party Favor Supplies:Lost and Found Halloween:Halloween Ads patterned paper, Music patterned paper, Dots patterned paper, Cottage patterned paper,Skull Doily patterned paper, Rounds patterned paper, decorative brads, accessory sheet;Misc:black ink, adhesive,glimmer mist,glitter,test tube

100 Days of MME

Good morning,everyone! Today I want to share something very special with you all. A few months ago, as I was looking for MME projects on the web, I stumbled upon something very,very cool. I was so inspired by what I found...I decided that I wanted to feature Suzann Jones in a blog post.

<p>Suzann jones photoSuzann is a talented crafter and blogger. What specifically caught my eye? She wrote a blog series called 100 Days of MME.

She created MME projects for ONE HUNDRED DAYS! She shared layouts,cards,altered items...you name it.

DAY+007+CakeDAY+035+BDAY+063+sketchDAY+049LDAY+065+W

I contacted Suzann and asked her to share a little bit about herself and where the concept of 100 Days of MME came from. Here is what she said.

 

It all began early in 2005. I was looking for a new hobby and scrapbooking caught my attention because playing with paper and glue in 3rd grade was great fun, so this had to be even better.

Plus, how expensive could a hobby be where paper was the main component?

As the hobby began to take over my dining room, living room and guest bedroom, I discovered the amazing world of internet scrapbook communities, kit clubs, message boards, galleries, online shopping, and wonderful women who would become IRL friends. I also discovered My Mind's Eye!

Stephanie asked how my 100 Days of MME on my blog got started. That is actually a long story about a longer journey.  I’ll try to make it short.

On February 15, 2010 my husband suffered a devastating stroke.  (This was actually 5 days after being featured for the first time on the MME Blog). As the realities of this life changing situation set in, any desire to scrap slowly disappeared. I really didn’t think I would ever scrap again and did a major purge of my scrapping goodies (it all fits in one room now!), but I just couldn’t get rid of any MME.

After 1 ½ years of no scrapping, my friend Lucy Chesna urged me to return to her DT at My Sketch World. I accepted but was struggling to find my mojo.

 
One day, as I sat in my scrap room, my eyes fell on the large box overflowing with beautiful MME (I had 39 POUNDS OF MME!) and I really wanted to play with all that pretty paper.

That thought process just rapidly snowballed into wanting to challenge myself to use only MME for 100 days and post it every day on my blog.  I truly amazed myself by meeting my goal and not missing a single day. My 100th day was August 8th, but I continue to post almost every day on my blog and MME is usually my paper of choice!

 
We are SO impressed with you, Suzann. Thank you for your love of MME and thank you for sharing it with everyone. We think you are amazing! Thank you for letting me feature you here.
We hope all of our readers will stop by and tell Suzann hello today!

We asked Danni to play along this month and here is what she came up with!

Good morning, Danni  here with you today.

I am really excited to share with you a couple of cards I created with the new MME The Sweetest Thing Stamps.  These stamps are some of my favorites ever. I love how crisp the images are and how beautiful the images and sentiments work together. 

While stamps can seem intimidating at first, if you start with a background or block of card stock, it can make the process so much fun and rewarding. Today, I am going to share with you a step by step process for creating a card using the hexagon stamp in the The Sweetest Thing Happiness Stamps
Here is the card I created!
You are so wonderful card danni reid 2
step 1:  stamp hexagons onto white card stock
   
Step 2 Step 3

I also created another card using the gorgeous doily stamps in the MME The Sweetest Thing Cutie Pie set!
  Finishing the card is made easy with the gorgeous chipboard and paper flags and brads.

I love to stamp a background and MME makes that so easy with gorgeous stamps and gorgeous chipboard to layer on top of the stamped background.

Supplies:The Sweetest Thing: "Cutie Pie and Happiness" stamp sets,  "Honey" simply lovely decorative brads and "perfect" chipboard elements, "Love" enamel dots, Tangerine chipboard pieces and decorative tape

Lost Found Halloween Decor

Each year, my Halloween decorations become more and more elaborate and a little more spooky.  Not gross, just spooky.  You can tell that my boys are maturing and enjoying just a few more creepy crawlies. 

I love, love, love – did I tell you that I love Lost & Found Halloween!  Jen certainly outdid herself when she created it.  I love the orange glitter, black chevron, advertisements and, of course, the embellishments. 

All those gross but cool “can kill you” potion labels that are so cute on layouts, make the easiest, cutest home décor!  I did not want to spend a lot of money on super cute jars, so I raided/cleaned out my refrigerator and my pantry. I also bought some sparkling mineral water and bottled root beer (the boys loved that). The shrunken heads and skeletons were purchased from a dollar store and everything else that fills the jars came from my pantry.

2012_10_03_00042012_10_03_00332012_10_03_00132012_10_03_00142012_10_03_00152012_10_03_00162012_10_03_00172012_10_03_0021

As you can see, adding just a few spider webs really adds to the authenticity of the jars.

In our CHA booths, we always frame our newest papers.  They really are beautiful works or art!  The Lost & Found Halloween papers are no exception.  I grabbed a few unused frames from my basement and voila!

2012_10_03_00202012_10_03_0028

Mixing in a few pumpkins, skulls, candlesticks, books and other personal artifacts, completed the look.  My sons loved it when they woke and our mantel looked like this one morning!2012_10_03_0022

I also created a large dimensional spider for my gigantic spider web on my front porch.

2012_10_03_0042

I demonstrated these projects this morning on Good Things Utah.  I’ve included instructions of the projects that you can download here:  Download 2012_10_04_MME_Lost & Found Halloween Decor

I will add the video here when it is available.

I hope your month is fantastically spooky!

Remember by Tamara

Happy Friday everyone! We hope you have a beautiuful and blessed weekend...and don't forget to enter this week's giveaways! We will post winners on Monday.  Today we have a quick share- a layout by Tamara. Enjoy and see you Monday!

Stephsignature

Remember Good Times
Supplies: Six by Six 2- “Happy Day” pad, The Sweetest Thing-Honey: enamel dots and decorative tape; The Sweetest Thing-Bluebell: decorative tape, title; The Sweetest Thing- Lavender: decorative tape.Misc: white, blue, and yellow cardstock, pink machine thread, 1 1/2” circle punch, black ink and pen.

Tamara says: I really enjoyed creating this layout.  It gave me an opportunity to simplify my materials and think a little out of the box.  Who knew that just 3 patterned papers (not including the cardstock) and three tapes could be so versatile?

I used double-sided papers from the Six by Six 2 “Happy Day” Pad. 
I really liked how well the smaller patterns worked with the circle punch.  I embellished the page by layering  different decorative tapes (LOVE the date label tape!) and a row of the fabulous new enamel dots.

Remember Good Times CUI'm I am a big fan of how the bright colors and fun patterns of the papers capture the bright spirit of our day at Disneyland – the “Happiest Place on Earth”.  It is  also no coincidence that the circles echo the shape of the girls’ Mickey ears!

Halloween Printer's Tray by Tina

IMG_1027

Supplies: Lost and Found-Halloween:6x6 paper pad, layered stickers, 12x12 chipboard accents,glittered accessory sheet, decorative brads;Misc:7gypsies printer's tray,adhesives,sewing machine and thread


Hello and happy Wednesday everyone!  Tina here today with one of my favorite holiday decorations - a printer's tray!  If you ask me...a printer's tray+Halloween=the perfect decoration!

IMG_1092
I really love creating holiday decorations with these trays because each little cubbie can be filled with  festive goodness and fun.

IMG_1093
To create my tray, I used the following supplies from the Lost & Found Halloween collection:
6x6 paper pad, Chipboard Element sheet, Glittered Accessory Sheets, and a few random brads and layered stickers. 

IMG_1095
I created a mini 'scene' in each cubby...layering paper, chipboard, and die cuts.  Don't forget to 'layer' chipboard pieces and accents on the edges of your tray for even more of a 3D effect.

IMG_1096

Try creating a holiday printer's tray the next time you are looking to add some holiday decor to your home. Easy, fun, and so festive!

Thanks for stopping by!
