Hello! It’s Valerie here today with a couple layouts featuring My Mind’s Eye’s fun decorative brads.
Supplies: Market Street :“Nob Hill” Streamer paper. Jubilee Tangerine 6x6 pad, Jubilee Tangerine “Fantastic” chipboard elements, Jubilee Tangerine mixed bag. Necessities decorative brads: Teals, Blues, Reds, and Black & Gray. Other: Silhouette Cameo (font: Intro), baker’s twine, and black mist.
First up is this layout about my son’s obsession with Legos and The Lego Movie. This layout was inspired by all the awesome string art that’s floating around Pinterest these days. Usually this art uses a wood board and nails, but I wanted to see if I could incorporate this onto a layout.
Brads made a perfect replacement for nails. I set up my layout using the Silhouette Studio software. Instead of cutting the “L” out, I placed teeny tiny circles at all the corners where I’d be poking a brad through and then deleted the “L” outline so just the holes for the brads would be cut.
Once all my brads were in place, I just wound some baker’s twine around the brads.
For this next layout, I made a repeating pattern and incorporated the brads into the pattern.
Supplies:Jubilee-Wild Berry “Hey You” Gardens paper. Decorative brads from Jubilee Mint Julep, Jubilee Wild Berry, Jubilee Sherbet, Now & Then Milo, and Now & Then Mildred. Other: American Crafts white cardstock, Silhouette Cameo, and Studio Calico alpha stamps.
The scattered brads mimics how the letters are spread across the refrigerator. I was able to mix and match brads from a few different sets. Usually I’d gravitate toward enamel dots for something like this, but I’m glad I decided on the brads instead.
We would love to see how this inspires you to use My Mind’s Eye decorative brads! Ready, set, grab those brads, and GO!
Hi everyone Laurel here. I have a couple of cards to share with you today. I just love the soft colors and pretty patterns of the Just Sayin’ collection.
Supplies: Just Sayin’-: 6X6 pad; Mixed Bag; Alpha Word Stickers
I hadn’t used it for cards yet so I figured it was about time .
A little bit of simple layering and stitching and these cards went together quite quickly. If you haven't had a chance to pick up one of our Mixed Bags, you must. These little packs of goodness make any papercrafting project so easy! Title, layering pieces, and special touches all in one bag. This set made my cardmaking a breeze!
My projects never seem complete without a simple die cut title and staples... so of course I had to include them as well.
Thanks for stopping by. Have you used our Mixed Bags on your projects? If so, share in the comments. I'd love to see them!
Supplies: Hello World: World Map patterned paper, Here & There patterned paper, Flowers patterned paper, 6x6 paper pad, mixed bag, chipboard, rub-ons, decorative brads, sticker sheets, enamel shapes; Misc: Blue thread, black ink and pen.
I am so excited about all the fantastic new lines released at CHA!! One of my favorites is the new Travel themed "Hello World" collection. The colors, patterned papers, and embellishments are wonderful and so versatile!
I had fun using this line to document our favorite vacation - a cruise to the Mexican Riviera in 2009. The colors matched perfectly with this picturesque picture of my children playing in the golden sand on the beach in Cabo San Lucas. (the last photo I took with my Canon before if fell into the ocean when I was hopping into the glass bottomed boat - so happy the memory card was saved)
I used the b-side of the World Map paper for the background of my page and framed it with the aqua blue patterned paper. I used the 6x6 map paper, a 6x6 light blue paper, and a navy blue journaling card to create the mat for my photo. I rounded the corner of the map paper and circled our location on the map - how awesome to visually mark where we were!! I added an epoxy arrow and a "You are here" rub-on.
I cut a strip of the chevron striped paper,to tie in all the colors of the elements, and inserted a large brad in the top. The bottom strip of blue and cream paper is a 6x6 sheet that I cut in half and trimmed. I covered the seam with the red tag and grouped chipboard and stickers around it. I LOVE the letter sticker sheet included in the sticker package - great for titles!! I placed the "Oh the Places We'll Go!" layered brad on the right corner of the photo to anchor the page.
I slid the journal card under the photo and layered a vellum tag from the Mixed Bag under it - love the transparent look. I added the blue enamel chevron shapes and continued them onto the photo. For the finishing touch, I placed a chipboard banner piece and two banner stickers, and a date tab.
I can't wait to scrapbook more vacation photos with this new Travel themed collection!!
Hi there, MME friends! Lea here today to share some ideas for using your My Mind's Eye goodies when you wrap gifts! I LOVE to give gifts, and I LOVE to make the outside just as pretty as whatever might be on the inside! And I am always raiding my scrapbooking product whenever I have to put together a gift!
Supplies: Jubilee "Mint Julep" - "Ride" 12x12 paper; Market Street "Nob Hill" - chipboard elements, chipboard buttons, flair pins; Necessities Metallic - alpha & word stickers; Now and Then "Mildred" - "Today" accent stickers; Record It! "Charmed" - enamel dots; other: wrapping paper, glitter cardstock, twine, bow die.
Valentine's day is right around the corner, so I went with a love theme for my gift wrapped projects today! But, I didn't use the traditional red & pink. I actually used gold, black & white, pulling goodies from different My Mind's Eye collections to accent the boxes. These would be great for the man in your life because they aren't super girly, but he might not love all the glitter from the glitter wrap. :)
I started by wrapping the larger box with glitter wrapping paper. After that I added added a doily to the side of it, then tied twine around it. I threaded the gold chipboard button to the middle of the twine bow, then layered a heart sticker & polka dot flair piece underneath it (tucking them under the twine as well).
I added the chipboard piece to the lower corner, added the word love in letter stickers & then accented it with enamel dots. Are you wondering how I got everything to stick to glittered paper? HOT GLUE. It will be your best friend when embellishing gift wrap. It still makes the package easy to take apart, but everything should stay on perfectly until they open it!
Next up is the smaller box, which I wrapped in some 12x12 MME paper. After wrapping it, I diecut the bow from gold glittered cardstock, then assembled it & adhered it to the top. I accented the middle of the bow with a gold chipboard circle.
To finish the small box, I layered a heart sticker & word sticker to the front and then embellished it with some enamel dots. Easy peasy!
Be sure to make your valentines feel extra special this year by wrapping their gifts up in super pretty products from My Mind's Eye. They will for sure feel loved by added touch of beautiful packaging!
Thanks for checking out my projects, and I hope that you have a wonderful rest of your day!
