My Little Shoebox bids our 2010 Design Team farewell

Farewell Hop

 

It's with very heavy hearts that we write this post today...saying goodbye is never easy. Over the past year we have gotten to know one another, been inspired by eachother's work, supported one another when there was a need and forged friendships.

Here's a special message from Helen and the Design Team Coordinators:

We have been truly blessed this past year, with amazing women who are so very talented!  It is such a bittersweet time for us, when we prepare to welcome in a new team, and say thank you and goodbye to our sweet scrap sisters. 
In honor of our current Design Team, please join us today in a FAREWELL blog hop dedicated to their time, talent, and love for MLS.
Before we start you on your way we'd like to send some special wishes to two of our designers who can not be with us today on our hop. First we want to congratulate Hilde on the birth of her baby boy born Thursday March 24th. Hilde let us know that both baby and momma are doing well and we are so happy for her and her family!

And second we'd like to send out a prayers for Pamela who we have missed dearly this past month and hope that she will be back scrapping with her amazing talent soon!

Please enjoy your journey today as you visit each one of our very talented design team members blogs. Please them a little blog love.

Start here

  Here's the order just in case there are any blogger issues

Getting those photos out of your shoe boxes...

Helen

Hello MLS fans! Today we are sharing some tips for getting your photos organized and out of your shoe boxes! Now many of you probably no longer keep photos in shoe boxes but a few years back...Oh say about 20...most of us did in fact store our photos that way.

Helen Chu, My Little Shoebox's founder and creative director had a vision in mind of helping people get those photos and memorabilia out of the shoe boxes and into scrapbooks when she started MLS in the Spring of 2005. Here's a little bit about Helen's vision when she creates her collections:

My goal is to encourage people to take their precious photographs out of their "little shoe boxes" and turn their personal memories into creations that will endure for generations. The idea behind "My Little Shoebox" is to make scrapbooking simple, quick, uniquely personalized, and most importantly, beautiful.

Scrapbooking your photos with My Little Shoebox products can be all those things when your photos are organized. Here are a few tips for organizing your photos.

  • Your first goal is to gather all of your photos into one place and then figure out how you want to organized them. It can be by year, holiday, family event or whatever makes sense to you. After all you are going be the one telling their stories when you create your layouts.
  • Next go thru each of the groups you have separated and pick out the ones that are over exposed, blurry or you just don't like. Keep the photos that will tell the story of your events or memories the best.
  • Then you can arrange those photos in photo boxes and use tabs to separate them in a way that works best for you.
  • If you save them on your computer then same tips can be done but just use folders separate and group them into for later use.

Now you are ready to start creating layouts that tell the stories of your memories. Our design team has created some fabulous layouts that do just that. Let's have a look at what they have created with their shoebox memorabilia

Tutorial Tuesday with Erin

It's Design Team Tuesday and today Erin has prepared a fabulous tutorial for all of you. Erin wants to show you how to use our journling punchouts along with gesso to create a mixed media project with our Farmer's Market collection. 

"Family" Layout

By: Erin Yamabe

TUtorial.MLS.EYamabe.jpeg01

Here's what you'll be using

TUtorial.MLS.EYamabe.jpeg03

The foundation of your layout is the b side of Fresh from the Field. Trim 3/4" off two sides of Sweet Pea.  Corner round all edges.  Adhere to Fresh from the Field, brown side up.

 Cut at 7.5 by 3.75 " strip from the Tutti Fruiti paper, b side.  This will be the piece your photos attach to

Punch out the following diecuts from sheet: green border strip, green flower, pink scallop rectangle, two circle flowers, yellow/green rectangle, and red/pink flower.

 TUtorial.MLS.EYamabe.jpeg04

Except for the green border strip, those diecuts will be the background of your layout.  Arrange in a 1/2 circle, using the green/yellow flower up top center, and continue to your right.  The bottom diecut will be your red/pink flower.  Place the Tutti Fruiti strip of paper as a guide, to the left center, making sure those diecut pieces peak through.

 

Adhere the diecut pieces down to brown paper.  [Except green border strip]

  TUtorial.MLS.EYamabe.jpeg05

Mix some gesso with a small amount of the Tattered Angels Firefly. 

TUtorial.MLS.EYamabe.jpeg06

Liberally apply that mixture over diecuts and center of layout, leaving about 1" of the brown paper showing.  Wipe away any excess of the gesso. 

TUtorial.MLS.EYamabe.jpeg07

Flick some of the Firefly yellow onto your gesso.  Allow to dry.

  TUtorial.MLS.EYamabe.jpeg08

Stamp the daisy flower with versamark around edges of layout, overlapping onto the orange paper.

TUtorial.MLS.EYamabe.jpeg10 

Stamp the daisy flower with versamark onto the green border strip.  Spray with Marshmellow glimmer mist. 

  TUtorial.MLS.EYamabe.jpeg11

Adhere with foam dots the green border strip along the bottom of diecuts, with about 1/2 of the red/pink flower showing from the bottom.

  TUtorial.MLS.EYamabe.jpeg13

Adhere 3 photos onto the blue paper, distress and ink edges with creamy brown.  Adhere to left center, just above green border strip.  Tuck under 1/2 of small flower diecut. 

 From the Cherries Jubliee paper, you will cut out the borders from the 3rd strip down.  Cut in 1/2, and adhere to top of page, using middle photo as center. 

  TUtorial.MLS.EYamabe.jpeg12

Cut 2 flower circle stickers from sticker sheet in half, place around edges of layout.

TUtorial.MLS.EYamabe.jpeg01

Add title and journal.

TUtorial.MLS.EYamabe.jpeg02

Staple a piece of the white ribbon underneath ride side of green border strip.

 

Now you have a fun mixed media themed project! We love using Glue Arts products and thank them for supplying Erin with the Glue Glider adhesive gun. Be sure and stop by th Glue Arts Blog for the next two weeks as they will be creating with My Little Shoebox products and featuring work from some of our designers too! They'll even be prizes to be won too!

Thanks for stopping by the MLS blog today!

Product Spotlight with Tajanee

Hello MLS fans! We hope you had a great week and are ready for the weekend. Do you feel you get more crafting done during the week or on the weekends. Tell us below when you comment today.

Today we are featuring some of our Home Tweet Home products with some gorgeous layouts created by our very own Tajanee White.

We love Taj's scrapbooking style and the way she always thinks outside of the box when using our cardstock stickers and journaling punches to create layered 3 dimensional projects. Let's take a look at what she came up with using our Home Tweet Home collection

MLS Feb 003 copy

This first layout features lots of layering and fussy cutting. Love the design.

MLS Feb 007 copy

This layout utilizes the cardstock stickers as 3 dimensional elements enhanced with pop dots. We also love the use of twine. It's such a trendy product right now.

MLS Feb 007 copy-1

Again the cardstock stickers are utilized to create a 3 dimensional look to this page and the journaling placement is perfect.

MLS Feb 014 copy

And finally this card created with a cork background is amazing. A big thanks to Taj for creating such beautiful projects this month.

We hope you all have a great weekend and get some time to craft.

Freshly picked just for you!

Hello MLS fans! We're bringing you some fresh picked designs from our Design Team with our Farmer's Market collection today. First we have some layouts from Pamela.

A new friend

A-New-Friend

Go ahead and cut up that cardstock! The banner that Pamela cut out of the Cherries Jubilee paper works great on this layout. Sometimes you may not have the right embellies in your stash so don't be afraid to create your own!

Happy

Happy

Is this fabulous quilt like hand stitched creation amazing or what? I asked Pamela how she has the patience to stitch so much on her layout and she shared that she does it while watching TV. Pretty smart if you ask me.

It's that time

It's-That-Time

Love these gardening pics and the way Pamela used the vegetable cardstock stickers in the right corner with her journaling above.

What a pair

Farmers-Market-card-1

Now we have some cards from Pattie

Happy Birthday

IMG_0529

Stamping on ribbon is an easy technique for beginning stampers. For best results use Staz-On ink.

We make a perfect pair

IMG_0530

You're invited

and finally from Pattie a layout

Sweetpeas

IMG_0533

Those are Pattie's kids and they are so sweet. She also used some stitching here on this layout and created her own flower with paper and accented the leaves with Glossy Accents.

And to finish off today's post, here are some fun creations from Heather Brown.

So yummy

Special Girl

Tuesday Tutorial with June

Hello MLS fans! Get out those MLS acrylic stamps cause June is hosting today's Tuesday Tutorial with a lesson on making your own patterned paper! Take it away June...

Making your own pattern paper

By: June Goh

Here's a simple way to make some pattern paper for your layout or card. All you need are some pattern papers and stamps from My Little Shoebox and you are all set.

  MLS_Tutorial

You will need to pick a lightly patterned paper and the B-sides of the MLS papers are perfect for this purpose. Next pick the stamp image that best suits your requirements.

  MLS_Tutorial_2

Stamp randomly all over the paper with your preferred ink. If you like your images a little glittery, sprinkle your stamped images with some glitter embossing powder and set the images with a heat gun. Once your images are dry, you can cut your new pattern paper and start creating.

  MLS_Tutorial_3

 Here is another pattern that I did with some green pattern paper, green ink pad and the cute trees from the Simple Life stamp set.

  MLS_Tutorial_4

Finish off with some MLS die cuts and stickers and you have a cute card for a loved one in no time.

  MLS_Tutorial_5

Here's another card I did with the heart stamps that goes perfectly with the die cuts from Cute as a Button line.

  MLS_Tutorial_6

Thanks for stopping by for my Tuesday Tutorial. I hope you will have a go at creating some of your own personal patterned paper with all the MLS goodies you have on hand.

Remember MLS fans, we feaure and additional tutorial each month in our Newsletter. Sign up in the top right of our blog.

I love this touching tribute to Rocio's mom. It's important to scrap our feelings so we always remember those we love.

Hello MLS fans. Today we have some beautiful projects from Nicole Wragge with our City by the Bay collection. First up are some adorable layouts she created for our booth at CHA.

Nicole used a whole sheet of our mini alphas on this layout as an embellishment.

 Love this sweet layout of her daughter.

Nicole added some adorable trim to this layout that really softens it.

And with this layout, a little bling goes along way with this one!

Here's a few cards Nicole created. Love that sun!

I like how the title is stacked and then cut out on cardstock.

And finally here's a peek at Nicole's altered project. A fun heart shaped mini album.

City by the Bay is a fun collection that can be adapted to so many different themes. We hope you'll share your creations with our collection on our Facebook page here.

Love the Prima flowers and bling.

Debbie cut out the cherry blossoms and added them in layers on this layout. Very creative.

This monochromatic layout really shines with the mix of Prima flowers and cut outs.

The lily pad stamps on craft paper are beautiful.
