Good morning blog readers! Today it's time for the May installment of I Spy with MME . Every day we scour blogs, online galleries, Facebook, and Twitter to find examples of layouts, cards, and other projects using our products.
Once we find eye-catching,inventive projects...we pin them to our Pinterest boards. If you need some majorly inspiring eye-candy to get your mojo going,then head on over! We promise that it will be just the thing to get you creating. We have some RIDICULOUSLY talented customers and fans! :)
Today we have seven projects that we wanted to share with you. Each designer's name is linked to their blog. So make sure to stop by, say hi, and see more of their talents!
Designer: Daria Pneva
Daria says: My name is Daria Pneva. I live in Russia. I have been scrapbooking for 8 years and love to create layouts. Collectable collection from My Mind's Eye is one of my favorite. It's bright, full of sun and good mood. That is why I created a layout about me and about summer. I cut flowers from paper and glued them onto my layout using 3D adhesive foams. Also I used glitter to make my layout more shiny!
Why it caught our eye:This page is an explosion of happiness and MME goodness. We love all of the bits and pieces tucked away here and we especially like how Daria used our decorative tapes. Thanks for making us smile, Daria!
Designer: Marielle LeBlanc
Marielle says: I created this layout as part of my DT work for Spellbinders , the layout was used to teach a class at a Crop and Create event in Markham ,Ontario in March. It featured the new Spellbinders "Feathers" die set. I really loved working with the Cut & Paste -Charm collection (a recent favorite! )...I’m totally addicted to those enamel dots .These family photos where taken at my parents 50th Anniversary photo shoot in June 2013. My boys are 9 (Felix) and 11 (Gabriel).
Why it caught our eye: Simply put...we LOVE a well designed two pager. It's not an easy thing to pull off. And this page certainly fits the bill. Marielle perfectly embellished the page and in a creative eye-catching way. Awesome page, Marielle!
Designer: Christin Grønnslett
Christin says: Layout made with My Creative Scrapbook February Main kit featuring a little 4 year old who doesn't like Mummys camera, She often turns her face away or puts the arm in front of her. She really knows what she wants and doesn't want to do.
Why it caught our eye: It's clean, bright, and eye-catching. We love the layering and the inventive use of the patterned paper to form arrows.
Designer: Connie Hanks
Connie says: As a photographer, it's easy for me to search my archives for the "perfect" photo for a layout, or sometimes I can even get a photo of my girls that same day if needed. But creating a layout with no photo? Challenging, but definitely a way to stretch my creative muscles! That's exactly what I did with this layout using the yummy "Lost & Found" 6x6 paper collection from MME! I woke up with the idea of a "bucket list" layout, and planted the seed with my husband and daughters (7 and 4 years old) at breakfast. By dinner, we had quite a few items on our list as each of us had come up with ideas throughout the day, but the best part was the conversation, dreams and giggles we shared over the dinner table as we rounded out our list! I love the colors, patterns and subtle tones of the Lost and Found collection and how each butterfly shows and carries the uniqueness of our family dreams!
Designer: Debbie Piercey
Debbie says: I loved using the MME Cut & Paste collection on my layout! The colors were perfect! I also used a double page sketch from Stick It Down.
Why it caught our eye: See what we said above about a well-designed two page layout. +1. We love the well balanced embellishment clusters on the bottom left and top right (ESPECIALLY that adorable embellishment bouquet on the top right!).
Designer: Stacey Schafer
Stacey says: I was thrilled to be asked to share this shaker card layout on the My Mind's Eye blog! I am, after all, MME's biggest fan! For this fun shaker card, I used a few pieces of My Mind's Eye Now & Then Izzy papers on this fun card! The Reverse Confetti - Confetti Cuts Double Edge Scallop Border was stitched together over a glassine bag full of Pretty Pink Posh sequins, and a small Reverse Confetti - Confetti Cuts Tag Me banner was added to the top with a mini staple! The "birthday wishes" sentiment from Reverse Confetti - Sweet Thing was stamped vertically on a background piece, to finish it off. For extra products I used and mentioned as well as more card details... you can visit my blog HERE.
Why it caught our eye: It's fun fun FUN. And who doesn't love confetti? This card makes us want to throw a party right here and now.
Designer: Aurélie Cormier
Auréliesays: I call this design my Ode to Taracotta7 - I have been following Tara's work for some time now via her gallery at scrapbook.com and absolutely love her style. Her layering and the attention she gives to her journalling is awesome. I was so excited when she gave me the thumbs up to lift one of her layouts for a Let's Capture Our Memories feature! TONS of My Mind's Eye's Collectable Memorable collection used on here, but I also turned to the Tim Holtz Splatters Stencil, some Studio Calico wood veneer hearts, DMC floss with my very handy Bazzill Basics stitching template, Crate Paper and BoBunny patterned paper, Crafter's Workshops Ronda Palazzari Designs stencil, Close to My Heart chipboard alpha and a Jillibean Soup title sticker. Oh! And that date sticker? It's actually hiding a stencilling mess! Gotta love scrapbooking opportunities to make it right! Hee!Hee! And yes, that's my sweet Éloïse in her father's arms... cute, eh? Thanks to the fabulous Philippe Dumas for capturing this great moment for us.
Why it caught our eye: We adore the scattered grid design and the controlled messiness. It looks effortless but if you really examine the page you can tell it has been well thought out. Swoon!
