Mojo Monday 133

This is crazy: two posts in one day!  The even crazier part is that my kids have been largely self entertaining today so I’ve had the opportunity to create projects for two posts.  I love participating in the challenges over at Mojo Monday and the first Monday of each month is contest time.  I always intend to participate in the contest but somehow never get arount to it, well, this week I did it!  It may be Thursday instead of Monday but I got it done.

Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted): Veranda B&T paper, Vanilla Cream, Juniper and Cocoa Cardstock, Cocoa ink, colored pencils, Wonder and Joy stamp set (The Angel Company), Sewing machine and thread, Forever Young Cricut cartridge.

I hope you enjoy and have a Memory filled day!


A Mojo Kind of Day

Hello Everyone!

Well its a Mojo kind of day for me today.  I’ve been noodling the Mojo sketch since yesterday and finally got a chance to see my visions realized.  This week the sketchers over at MojoMonday came up with a circle version and a square version of their sketch, so, I of course had to do both.  First the circle version:

This card uses the Caboodle Level 2 paper pack, Sweet Leaf Cardstock , Colonial White Cardstock, Flower Child Stamp set, Black Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad and colored pencils, all from Close to my Heart.

For the square version of the sketch, something inside of me just screamed LAYOUT!!!!  So instead of a card I turned the square sketch into a scrapbook layout of my kids in the bathtub.  Y’know one of those pages that will be brought out in 15 years as they’re getting ready to go out on a big date!

Aren’t they cute?!?!

This layout uses Cardstock in Lilac Mist, Cocoa and White Daisy from Close to my Heart, Patterned Paper from the So Tweet Collection by pebblesinc., liquid glass from Close to my Heart, Chocolate Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad and Cocoa Exclusive Inks Marker from Close to my Heart, New Arrival Cricut Cartridge and the Clear Star Gelly Roll Pen by Sakura.

Hope you’ve enjoyed my projects today, I’d love to hear what you think!  Have a great Memory-Filled Day!

Mojo 131

Here is the card I did for   this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch.  I know its Wednesday, but for whatever reason (actually probably two reasons age 3 and 11 months) whenever I am able to complete the sketch, its never on Monday, good thing they leave it up for a whole week, huh?

I turned the sketch vertical (you can see the original here).  The supplies I used are: Patterned Paper and Tag-More Mimi SWIC (The Angel Company), Cardstock-Mimi (The Angel Company), Stamps-Fringed Phrases (Close to my Heart)  Bountiful Bears (The Angel Company), Inks-Coal Black (Ancient Page) Cocoa (Close to my Heart), Ribbon-Cocoa(Close to my Heart), Other-PrismaColor Colored pencils and Baby Oil.

How cool is it that I won the paper and the stamps in a drawing that The Angel Company had on their website?  I love the way this turned out, and when I get the stuff for free, that makes it even better!

Have a great memory-filled day!
