More My Minds Eye~Totes Adorbs!!

Yesterday’s Fall catty blog hop was a blast! I had a great time seeing the new projects in action by some of my fellow MemoryWorks DT gals.   That being said, I couldn’t help but to create more because there’s so much to see with these MME patterned papers!

I used American Crafts white card stock for my base and began layering with a 10×10″ piece of Adorbs. I brought in some pink card stock to boost up the pinks in the papers and frame my photos. I love the pink & green color combo and the fact that the green patterned paper supports my fun outdoorsy photo of Abby. This silly girl was so funny going through the sprinkler & playing with the grass this summer!

In the photo below, I used some the label stickers and fussy cut some of the patterned paper to get more arrows. I also splattered some Mr. Huey’s ink and sprinkled some Adorbs enamel dots and SpiegelMom Scraps Sequins!

Can you tell have a current obsession with enamel dots and sequins!?! I love the shine of the enamel dots and the bright sparkle of the sequins. They go fantastic with my girly pages. The sequins also come in a variety of colors including royal blue, aqua, gold, silver & black. Try them out!  The black ones look really cool on Halloween projects as they’re glossy but not overbearing.

Here’s a close up of how I created my little flags. I just cut a thin strip of patterned paper and wrapped it around a Maya Road stick pin. I glued the paper around the pin with some tacky glue and then layered them along the sides of my layout using some foam adhesive to pop them up. Pretty simple & cute!

SN@P 2 It! Fast layouts

SN@P, do you SN@P?  Simple Stories SN@P, that is. At first, I wasn’t too sure about the small pocket pages, but this line is fantastic!!  Not only can you create great 6×8″ scrapbook incorporating lots of pictures and memorabilia, but you can use these same elements on your scrapbook layouts too.  Yes, it’s true! And, it’s fast.  See…

This layout came together in less that 30 minutes! I’m totally serious here.  I just cut the diagonal stripe to 6×8″ and placed is off center in the 12×12″ base.  I tilted my 4×4″ Instagram picture and off set it within the 6×8″ piece.  You can see that I punched some clouds with my trusty Fiskars Cloud Punch (I have 3 sizes).  I cut apart a 3×5 bingo card and placed on the top and bottom of the photo, added some SN@P Stickers and Flair Badges, spattered some inks, stuck on some washi and added my overlay for the title.  Don’t be scared of these transparency overlays!! They’re awesome to use. You can layer them, just like I did below.  GOOD. TO. GO!

This one came together in about 40 minutes, but only because I was being a putz, LOL… Any-hoo, I used one 4×4″ and two 3×3″ Instagram photos here.  I trimmed one of the SN@P border stripe papers to include the sections I wanted, then built my layout up from there.  I adhered my photos and tucked some of the polaroid cards behind them, along with more transparencies.  These SN@P border & element stickers are so fun!!  There are so many shapes and fun sayings that you’ll have something for lots of your projects.
