The rules (as always) are simple:
Welcome to the My Mind's Eye blog today, Tonya here with you.
Last month my beautiful mom turned the big seven-oh and for her party she wore an aqua and navy striped dress. When I received my design team box the other day with all of our new product in it and saw Jubilee-Tangerine I immediately knew it was going to be put to use for some of the photos from her celebration! The aqua, blue, orange, yellow and little pops of red were perfect!
Supplies: Jubilee-Tangerine: "Adventure" Be Daring Paper, 6x6 Decorative Paper Pad, "Awesome" Die Cut Mixed Bag, "Honor" Decorative Brads, "Awesome" Enamel Dots, "Adventure" Flair, "Story" Rub Ons, "Fantastic" 12x12 Chipboard Elements
For the title work I cut the words and the large numbers with the Silhouette, then I layered behind the numbers with different strips of patterned paper from the 6x6 decorative paper pad.I separated the "busier" pieces of paper with little strips of the subtle blue patterned paper and some stitching.
I printed up two 2x2 photos to use in the instaframe die cuts and then embellished with many other die cuts in the mixed bag. Oh and see the 'xoxo'? RUB ONS!!!!! I was so excited to see these! They are also in the corner of the photo above, the three little hearts.
Originally my title was going to say "She makes 70 look good", but then I spotted the 'fantastic' piece of chipboard and altered my title to accommodate it.
Another detail I love with this line is all of the handwritten touches and sayings! My Mind's Eye always keeping up with the trends! Thanks for stopping by the blog today hope you leave with a little bit of inspiration!
Hi all, this is Tonya with you here today. With the release of the Record It collection came a new embellishment from My Mind's Eye, wood veneer. After seeing this video by the über talented Jennifer McGuire on how to achieve the look of letterpress using your wood veneer I decided I had to give it a go! These first three cards were all made using the same piece of wood veneer.
The first card I kept very simple and basic. Since I used just the bare wood veneer with plain watercolor paper I really didn't want anything to over power the all white letterpress panel.
Happy Thursday My Mind's Eye fans! This is Tonya here with you. Today's project features Now and Then-Dorothy and a mix of a few other lines. I found these photos of my daughter on the beach and the colors in the Dorothy line immediately came to my mind. The organic nature of the woodgrain paper was the perfect background for the feminine colors.
Happy Independence Day to our US blog readers! Tonya here today with a layout that is all about celebrating one's freedom.
Happy Friday My Mind's Eye fans! Tonya here to share a classic card set with you today. What makes this set special is that it was all made using the Record It Charmed collection. The cards in the set measure 3x4". A little smaller than the standard card, but there are two things that make this size so special. The first is that using the 6x6 paper pad makes envelopes that are just the right size without having to trim the paper first. The second reason is because the card base is the exact same dimensions as the 3x4" cards in the journaling set.
It was a little too challenging to get a decent photograph of all eight cards in this set together so I have broken the photos into two groups of four. Here is the first set.
Supplies: Record It-Charmed: 6x6 decorative paper pad, journaling kit, decorative tape, enamel dots
Each card in this set started with one of the 3x4 cards from the journaling set and then they were embellished with enamel dots, decorative tape and some glittered die cut hearts.
For the mustache card I just added one little glittered heart and a little enamel dot. For the second card I added some decorative tape with the arrows pointing down to the word 'love' and then added another small glittered heart and enamel dot.
For the above card on the left I added a larger gold glittered heart and the word 'love' with the gold stripes was cut from one of the other 3x4 cards. For the card on the right, I die cut a heart out of the 3x4 card and added decorative tape behind it, the 3x4 card was then popped up with dimensional foam.
These two were simple to put together. Just added some tape, some more glitter hearts, and those enamel dots we all love so much! (Especially the glitter gold ones!)
Above are the matching envelopes. I made mine using the We R Memory Makers envelope punch board, or you could easily use an electronic die cut machine.
Hi everybody! Tonya here with you today. I've been itching to use some of the mini collections that I haven't been able to put to use yet. So I pulled out some of the product that I have been ogling and went to work making a trio of cards.
Hi My Mind's Eye fans! Tonya here today to share a new layout with you. Over Spring Break we were fortunate to get to spend 10 glorious days in Turks & Caicos. I could hardly wait to scrap some of the photos. The Now and Then-Izzy was just the perfect match with all of the blues, aquas and greens.
Supplies: Now and Then-Izzy: "Boys" Smart paper, 12x12 "Dream Big" Chipboard, "Dream Big" Buttons, "Dream Big" Alpha/Tiny Words, "Boys" Brads, 'Happenings" Enamel dots, "Smile" Enamel Shapes, 6x6 Decorative Paper Pad
I started this layout by designing the wave on my Silhouette Cameo and then backed the opening using different papers with varying hues of blue. Then stitched around it all. I inked around the sun to make the edges stand out a bit more since I was using two vivid patterned papers next to each other.
