Hey there, MME friends!! Lea here today with a personal and special project to share with you! It is Valentine's week, and as I thought about what I wanted to create...I realized that this will be the 15th Valentine's Day that my husband and I have been together.
Supplies: Journal Cards: Record It Charmed, Follow Your Heart, Just Splendid, Here is Happy, All Things Chalk; Decorative Chipboard: Market Street Ashbury Heights & Nob Hill, Jubilee Sherbet; Word & Alpha Stickers: Now & Then Mildred, Izzy, Milo & Dorothy; Enamel Shapes: Now & Then Mildred & Milo, Enamel Dots: Jubilee Wild Berry.
I started by pulling out journal cards, transparency overlays, chipboard shapes & stickers with phrases & images that make me think of my husband.
I used all of the different collections from 2014, and I had a ton of amazing items scattered all over my desk. I started out by pulling the journal cards that really said what I wanted, and layered them together in a way that they would have good dimension as I started embellishing them.
Once I pulled my favorites & had them arranged exactly as I wanted them, I went through the cards and stamped love themed sentiments on some of them. I didn't do this to every card...just ones that I felt could use a little extra statement.
I went through the stack of cards one more time, adding embellishments & alpha/word stickers to finish sentiments on other cards that I didn't include stamping. This made the booklet feel complete, so I punched a hole through the left corner of all the items & tied them together with ivory twine.
This Valentine card is not very traditional, but I'm super exited to give it to my husband! It says so many of the things that I don't think to say to him on a daily basis. It's also a good reminder that you don't have to use Valentine themed product to create a card for that special someone! Break into your vast stash of My Mind's Eye product & you will find a lot of items that can tell someone just how much you love them!
It’s February and with Valentine’s Day about a week away I’ll give you one guess as to what my layout is about.
Yep! You guessed it—LOVE. But not the mushy, kiss kiss romantic kinda love—it’s a layout about sibling love.
Supplies: My Mind’s Eye Jubilee Wild Berry 6x6 pad and Sherbet 6x6 pad. My Mind’s Eye Now & Then Milo 6x6 pad. My Mind’s Eye Jubilee Wild Berry “Today” enamel shapes and Wild Berry “Life” enamel dots. Other: Silhouette Cameo (font: No. Seven) and kraft cardstock.
I knew I wanted a layout with a bunch of photos. So I gathered twelve photos of my two cute subjects together and turned them all black and white to unify them. I just love black and white photos. Always have, always will. You can’t go wrong with black and white photos, kraft paper, and pops of color. It’s always winning combination in my opinion.
How cute are those conversation hearts!? You can find them in the Silhouette store. I picked four different patterned papers from a variety of My Mind’s Eye's 6x6 paper pads. I love the smaller scale of the patterns when I’m die cutting shapes. Also, I can load all four of these papers onto my cutting mat at the same time and get all my cutting done with one loading of the mat.
I finished the layout off with some enamel dots and hearts and colored stitching. Usually I stitch with either black thread or white thread, but with the black and white photos I thought a pop of color would be fun.
The countdown to Valentine’s Day has begun. Happy Friday everyone!
Hey there! Missy here. Can you believe it’s February already? I love this month and all the fun Valentine related projects that go along with it! I can’t wait to get my hands on the new MME releases, but until then, I decided to reach into last year’s stash of Lost & Found Record It to create this fun Valentine layout. I love the different shades of reds and pinks and the neutral tans and greys mixed in with them. Perfect for a layout about love!
I started with white cardstock and a fun heart cut file (from The Cut Shoppe) that I also cut on white cardstock. I love the white-on-white look, and it gives a fun yet subtle kick to the background. I used a few pieces of patterned paper and a few of the journal cards to create my layers. Those cute hearts are from three different products: patterned paper, a journal card and a piece of chipboard. Those journal cards are so versatile. I just hand cut the “I Love You” heart out and used it as my title.
Supplies Used: Lost & Found Record It! Heirloom – “Adored” Glittered Paper, “Sweet” Paper, “Formal” Paper, “Heirloom” Cards, Chipboard Elements, Sticker Accessory Sheet, Alpha & Word Stickers, Enamel Dots, Decorative Tape, Ephemera Pack, Decorative Brads; Other – cardstock, The Cut Shoppe cut file, October Afternoon date stamp, Liquitex Gesso, Artist’s Loft Watercolors, Brother Sewing Machine, Coats Thread, Heidi Swapp Color Shine, Shimmerz Vibez, pop dots, black Sharpie pen.
I love machine stitching, and I used white thread to stitch through my background hearts. Here you can really see the layers. I incorporated an alpha and word sticker and enamel dot onto my layers as well. I didn’t go too crazy with the watercolor, but I did add some subtle pink color behind my layers.
This was the perfect layout to use that adorable heart chipboard banner! I love layering pieces like that. This collection makes it really simple to create a project about love because the majority of it focuses on just that.
I hope this inspires you to start getting into the Valentine spirit and create something about your love for someone or something. I know I’ll be making a lot more projects like this throughout the month!
Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
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!
Good morning everyone, Tonya here today. Valentine's day is very close on the horizon and I have some cards to share with you…all using Cupid's Arrow! This collection is simply perfect for this holiday. I love the fact that there is plenty of black and blue mixed in with the red…makes it super easy to make cards for that special someone in your life!
Happy Valentine's Day! This is Tamara joining you on this love-filled day. I hope that if you celebrate you are enjoying it with the friends and family that are so close to your heart.
Today I would like to share a layout with you that captures the sweet "brotherly love" that my two sons share.
Supplies:All is Bright: Collage patterned paper, Linen patterned paper, Ephemera Frames patterned paper, stickers, chipboard, brads, and accessories pad; Blue and Red Lush chipboard letters; Misc: Red thread, black ink and pen.
I stepped a little out of the "traditional Valentine's Day box" and used a lot of blue, cream, and white on my page.
It also gives the page a more masculine feel, since Valentine layouts tend to be very feminine, pink and covered with hearts.I used the "All is Bright" Christmas collection - who knew it would be perfect for a different holiday?!
I think it is fun to scrapbook photos from years past. This picture was taken in 2007, but I pulled it off my computer and scrapbooked it as a Valentine layout.
I saw the hexagon stickers and knew that I HAD to use them on my page. I LOVE the fabulous and timeless MME Lush Chipboard letter stickers. I have a bunch in my stash and they seem to magically work with every paper line. I really like the velvet texture of the blue letters too.
