Simply Wonderful...Mojo Monday #381

Hello!  It's that time again :)  A brand new Mojo Monday sketch is up on the blog this morning.  Here is my take on this week's sketch.





I used the same Stampin' Up paper pad I've used previously (gotta love the clearance corner!) paired with a die from Taylored Expressions (Pockets & Pages - 3x4 Banner) and a sentiment from Close to My Heart (You're the Bomb).


I popped the banner up on foam boosters over some silver shimmer trim from CTMH.  I used a double width of the shimmer trim here.  I just love this stuff - it is self adhesive and available in lots of colors.  Here is this week's sketch.  I modified the shapes a bit :)  Have fun with it!



Don't forget to link up your creations at the Mojo Monday blog.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!!

Mojo Monday #380

Hello!  Happy Monday :)  I had a nice weekend, and am so happy that I got all my 2014 photos ordered :)  I can't wait to get them and get them in my Project Life.  I am going to stay caught up this year.  Really.  I am.  Probably.  Hopefully.  HA!  Anyways, here is another catch up card using this week's Mojo Monday sketch.  Sorry if I am boring you with these ;)


I haven't been photographing my completed layouts because to be perfectly honest, they aren't great!  My photos are all pretty bad -with my phone and just ho-hum.  BUT I am totally okay with that because it is our life documented in an album.  My kids love looking through them.  They don't care if the pictures aren't composed perfectly or mom looks AWFUL or the picture isn't in focus.  So, trying to let go of perfection in favor of documenting is working :)  I used a Pebbles 6x6 pad that I bought beginning of last year to use specifically for Project Life because I loved the patterns and colors.  The numbers were cut using the By the Numbers Die-namics set from MFT.  And my new favorite goodie is the custom "week" stamp I had made by Bossy Joscie!!!  I searched high and low for something like this and finally asked Joscelyn if she could make one.  Voila, not one but two stamps later and I am in LOVE!!!  I may need to order in another font.  You can check out her One Word stamps HERE.


Here is this week's sketch.

So Totally Awesome...Mojo Monday #379

Hello!  Happy New Year!  Welcome to 2015 on this old blog :)  This year I will celebrate 5 years of blogging!?  Wow - can't believe how fast the past five years has gone by.  We are kicking off 2015 with a brand new fantastic Mojo Monday sketch.  In catch up mode with my Project Life 2014, so I made another 4x6 card to add to my album along with last week's card.


I used the same Stampin' Up clearance paper stack as last week, but this time paired it with a brand new stamp set from Close to My Heart.  The set is called You're the Bomb and I love it for cards, Project life, and regular scrapbook pages.  I stamped the sentiment and arrows in Graphite Brilliance Black ink and the little hearts in Electric Red ink.  The glitter tape is also from CTMH.  The background of the card was stamped in Natural ink with the Grid Background from MFT.  The cute little tab was something that has been floating around my desk for. a. long. time.


I made it using a couple Die-namics from MFT - the little hearts from Blueprints 11 and the File Tab Die-namics.  Here is this week's sketch.



Be sure to visit the Mojo Makers blogs for more inspiration - links are in my sidebar.  Remember to link up your creation at the Mojo Monday blog.  It is the first week of the month, so that means it is your opportunity to win a Verve Stamps set!  Hope your year gets off to an inky start ;)  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Smile...Mojo Monday #378

Hello!!!  Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, Hanukah, Kwanzaa, or whatever you may have celebrated this month!  I'm thrilled to say that all the Christmas cards I made this year were in fact given to someone!!  It is the last Monday of December (and the last in 2014!!?), so that means it is Tall & Skinny week at Mojo Monday.  Here is my card using this week's awesome sketch.



Excuse the not so great photo.  It was rainy here today, so I had to take the photo at my front door instead of outside.  I rotated this week's sketch and decided to use the opportunity to make a 4" x 6" card for my Project Life album.  The papers are from a paper stack that was on clearance at Stampin' Up - absolutely love this color palette and couldn't resist buying it :)  The fabulous die cut is from Taylored Expressions - part of the Pockets & Pages - Circle Words die set - LOVE this set.  I also stamped the background using the Grid Background stamp from MFT.  Here is this week's sketch.



Have fun with it!  Be sure to visit the Mojo Makers blogs for more inspiration - links are in my sidebar.  Remember to link up your creation at the Mojo Monday blog.  Hope you all have a happy and safe time celebrating the beginning of 2015!  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Curtain Call Christmas

Hello!  Happy Sunday!  A rare weekend post for me, but I got a hankering to make a card the other night.  I saw the inpsiration photo on Marisa's blog for this week's Curtain Call Challenge and knew I had to play along because I love everything candy cane :)




Here is my card.


I used some My Mind's Eye paper that reminds me of a candy cane for the front of the card base.  The snowflakes are from the Snowflake Splendor stamp set from MFT.  The sentiment is a combination of words from Very Merry and Wreaths of Joy (Taylored Expressions).  The layout for this card is last week's CAS(E) this Sketch.  After stamping and cutting the snowflakes, I coated them with clear Wink of Stella.  Here is a close-up.


Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Enjoy the rest of your Sunday :)



Supplies:






Stamps:  LJD Snowflake Splendor (MFT), Very Merry, Wreaths of Joy (TE)
Papers: Winter Wonderland 6x6 pad (MME), Smooth White (MFT)

Merry Christmas...Mojo Monday #376

Hello!!  Hope you had a good weekend.  Christmas preparations are in full swing and the Christmas excitement has hit my kids FULL FORCE!!!  It makes me wish I was a kid again when the most difficult decision was deciding what you would ask Santa for :)  Anyways, it is time for a brand new Mojo Monday sketch.  Here is my card for this week.


That fabulous looking sentiment is from Verve's Merry & Bright stamp set (currently out of stock, sadly!).  Be sure to check out what Julee does have in stock if you "need" a great Christmas/Winter set, though!  The ornament is from Taylored Expressions Very Merry stamp set and was cut and layered with the coordinating dies.  The patterned paper is an oldie - 12 Days of Christmas from My Minds' Eye.  I think it is from 2011?  That nice wide gold washi tape is from CTMH and the pearl flourish from Zva Creative.  Here is a close-up.


Here is this week's sketch.
