Hey there! Missy here with you today. I’m so excited to share my first layout using the Hello World collection! It’s one of MME’s newest lines, and it’s just perfect for travel photos. One of our favorite places to visit is Las Vegas, and I always love taking pictures from the plane as we fly over the mountains and Lake Meade. It’s just an amazing view, and so I decided to scrap a few photos from the air.
I began with the “Beauty” Bonjour paper because it is pretty neutral. I wanted to add some mixed media to my background, so I used a stencil and some gelatos to create the plus sign shapes. I also used some distress paint and watered it down onto some plastic packaging and smudged it all over the background. I love a messy look, and that technique creates it. I chose a few patterned papers to layer under my photos and then used some smaller paper strips and various embellishments to finish it off.
Supplies Used: Hello World—“Beauty” Bonjour Paper, “All Aboard” Suitcases Paper, “Discovery” Here and There Paper, 6x6 Paper Pad, “Beauty” Rub-Ons, “Discovery” Sticky Notes, “Beauty” Enamel Shapes, “Adventure” Decorative Brads, “All Aboard” Flair, “All Aboard” Wood Veneer, “Travel” Stickers; My Colors Cardstock—Antique Gold, Deep Blue; Niche—“Fancy That” Foam Stickers, “On Trend” Chipboard Stickers; Other—Liquitex Gesso, Faber Castell Gelatos, Tim Holtz Distress Paint, Brother Sewing Machine, Coats Thread, Sharpie Pen, Heidi Swapp Color Shine, October Afternoon Date Stamp, Archival Ink, pop dots.
I LOVE these shiny gold alpha chipboard stickers from the Niche line…they are perfect for this page! I combined the with some of the stickers from Hello World to create my title. I always think big and shiny when it comes to Vegas! I also added in a few of the Wood Veneer and Enamel Shapes.
Here you can see more of the mixed media work as well as the layering. I also used the rub-ons in the collection…they go on so smoothly! That glittery gold arrow is from the Niche “Fancy That” Stickers.
Here’s a look at the bottom cluster on the page as well as my journaling. I love to journal right onto my page if the design allows it. I added a fun brad next to my writing for a pop of that pretty red color. I love the Flair in this line, too….just adorable!
One final look at a few of the embellishments…the wood veneer may be one of my favorites in this line! They are all so cute and they stick very well. Here you can also see some of the new MME cardstock…there are a ton of gorgeous colors. I used the Deep Blue here and the Antique Gold in my paper layers under my picture.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope this inspires you to pull out some travel photos and make something awesome with this new line!
Have a great day!
Hi everyone! Laurel here.
I absolutely love the Fancy That collection. Baby pink is my favorite color and when paired with gray and gold... sigh...
Now I don’t have any weddings coming up so I challenged myself to create something with the collection that was not wedding related. I came up with a couple of cards. By using a couple of journal cards from the collection I was able to whip the cards quickly and easily.
Of course being a tea lover I had to create a tea one I love the added touch of the gold hearts.
Next up a celebration card. The gold dots made me think of glitter or bubbles so I went with that as a theme and die cut a couple of wine glasses.
I can’t wait to play with this collection even more!
Products Used: Fancy That: 6 X 6 pad, 3 X 4 Journal cards
You made it—we’re halfway through the week already! Valerie here with you today with a new layout. I finally got a chance to play with the new My Colors Cardstock by My Mind’s Eye. The colors and textures are absolutely gorgeous. It cuts “like butter” in my Cameo machine too.
My Mind’s Eye My Colors canvas cardstock (Pale Blossom, Snowbound, and Atlantic Shore). My Mind’s Eye Hello World stickers and wood veneer. My Mind’s Eye Niche “Hello World” foam stickers. Other: Silhouette Cameo (font: Pea Devon Caps ), American Crafts phrase stamps, and Studio Calico Mister Huey.
Sorry, but I had to do it. It’s seems I can’t avoid white cardstock these days, but thanks to Puerto Rico’s colorful, fearless choice of building colors, I added some pink and aqua colored cardstock into the mix. The colors coordinate so well with my photos, don’t you agree?! It’s also been awhile since I’ve strayed away from square or rectangular photos. Cropping the photos to a diamond shape was a little tricky, but well worth it. Love the end result!
I added in some wood veneer embellishments from the Hello World collection and some Niche foam stickers. They add just the right amount of dimension. The wood veneer is self-adhesive. So yay! There was no fighting with the bottle of glue I usually use for wood veneer—the tip always has to be unclogged.
I highly suggest giving the new My Colors Cardstock a try if you haven’t already! And I highly recommend a trip to Puerto Rico, too! As always, thanks for stopping by and checking out our projects.
Hello everyone! This is Shelly with some Project Life inspiration for you today. This time I am playing with the new Hello World Collection but with a little twist. This pretty collection isn’t just for travel and far off adventures. I was inspired to document our Easter celebration with it!
Supplies: Hello World: “Travel” My Travels Paper, “Adventure” Journal Cards, “Travel” Stickers, “All Aboard” Wood Veneer; On Trend “Awesome” Stickers; Other: Becky Higgins Design G page protectors, typewriter, date stamp, ink.
These colors just screamed spring and Easter in my ear. I just had to listen.
It really started when I saw this “Let’s Go” journal card. That pretty chevron pattern with those creamy colors had me at hello. It was the perfect little card for all of our “Egg Adventures.”
I trimmed down the My Travels stripped pattern paper down to 6x4 and ran it through my typewriter at an angle. I used the Travel Stickers to add my title over the tags that were already on the pattern paper; Simple and easy, just how I like it.
I continued the simple theme for the other side of my layout too with plenty of pictures and two of the journal cards to add our story.
I used my typewriter for additional journaling. As you can see, I need a little practice with that machine, but I like that it is just a little wonky. I topped the “Hello” card off with a little wood veneer heart right over my page protector to add that little extra something.
I am very happy how this layout turned out. Just because we don’t go on huge adventures on far off travels, doesn’t mean I can’t use this collection for the adventures we have in our own backyard. The colors are so versatile. I can really see myself using this collection again and again for more than a few other memories too. Have you been creating with the “Hello World” collection for those memories other than your travels? I would love to see them! I hope you link us up and share.
Thank you for stopping by today. Have a wonderful day!
Happy Friday My Mind’s Eye readers! This is Tonya with you today. Today I have a layout to share with you to show that our new travel line doesn’t have to just be used for our travel theme layouts or cards.
It’s Alexes here again! Yesterday I shared a 9x9 layout of my beautiful baby girl but today I want to share a really fun and adventurous layout with you all!
Some of you might know that my family and I just made a big move to the great state of Alaska, and over the past year we’ve done a lot of exploring! This page features some memories of our trip to visit Portage Bay, an absolutely breath taking glacier!
I’ve been wanting to experiment with oversized type for a while now and I thought this would be a great way to try it out! I used my silhouette to cut out the title and I used my Selphy to print out the 3x4 photos that run alongside it.
Then I just started adding embellishments after embellishment! I love these ahhmazing wood veneer, they’re awesome because they’re much thicker than normal which give layouts some great dimension AND they’re adhesive!! Win, win if you ask me! Adding some brads in between added some additional color to the page.
Then I used a bunch of these label stickers to add another strip of embellishments below the title.
After adding a few more stickers, some enamel hearts, and one of those adorable arrows, I felt like the page had evened out and was finished in the embellishment area
I toyed around with idea of adding a thin line of black ink around the edges of the cardstock but I thought that might cut off the feel of the page and I loved the freeness of it!
What do you guys think? Should I have added the line around the edges or do you like it how it is?
Thanks soo much for stopping by, I hope you’re all having an awesome Wednesday!
Hey there My Minds Eye lovers!I hope each of you had a fantastic Easter! I know we had a fantastic time over here. We woke up to snow which was a bit of a bummer but thankfully everything melted in just a few hours!Today I want to show you my very first page made with the new On Trend line!Years ago I found one of the cutest scrapbook albums and turned it into a baby book for my first baby boy. Since then I searched and searched for the same exact album for the rest of my kids because of course each of my baby albums had to match... perfectly. One might say I have a type A personality.... but the album happened to be a 9x9 album and if you didn't know apparently NO ONE makes them anymore and they're extremely difficult to find! So imagine my excitement when I walked into a scrapbook store in a small town in Idaho and I happen to see SEVEN of exact same album! Needless to say I bought three more after I was done with my happy dance! So each time I have a baby I record the first year of their life in one of these precious albums. As most of you know I just had my third baby and it marks the beginning of yet another baby album.This page I made is the very first for my sweet baby Bostons baby album, I hope you all enjoy!One of my very favorite ways to add journaling to my pages is to use my vintage typewriter that my husband bought for me at a garage sale a few years ago!I wanted to add something pretty that would add some dimension to this page, so I went with a die cut of these pretty leaves. Then I used some pink and gold watercolor to fill them in, and I'm totally obsessed with how they turned out!The papers and embellishments in the new On Trend line are absolutely to DIE for! This gold foil text page and the chunky pink stripes really caught my eye and I love they way they work together to make a whimsical feel to this page.Thanks everyone for stopping by and I hope you have a fantastic day!!
Last weekend, my daughter attended her Senior Prom. It was a monumental occasion with 5 of her best friends. They started the day with a waffle breakfast, then went to a fun center where they played laser tag, miniature golf, and went bowling. The girls had a few hours to get ready, then they got these wonderful photos taken and were whisked off in a limo to an elegant dinner and danced the night away at the State Capitol.
When I saw the photos - I knew "Fancy That" would compliment the pictures perfectly. Yes, it has a wedding theme - but the elegant papers and luscious gold foil elements were perfect for this MAGICAL occasion!!
"Best Day Ever"
For the first layout, I used the pink "Celebrate" paper with gold foil confetti border. I cut a strip of the gold striped paper and the "Happy" gold word paper from "Fancy That". I used the striped 6x6 paper to back the "Best Day Ever" transparency. I cut the black and gold 6x6 paper in half and tucked it behind the word paper.
I LOVE the fabulous gold foil chipboard letters from the "Niche" line and used them for my title. I accented the layout with word stickers "Best Friends, All Dressed Up, and Memories", "All Together" label, and "Happy" vellum circle from the mixed bag.
"A Night to Remember"
I had to use this song from "High School Musical 3" for the page title. My daughter loved watching the movie when she was little and even played it while she was getting ready for this dance. I used the bold striped "Best Man" paper for the foundation of my page. I matted the 5x7 photo with the new black MME card stock and three 6x6 papers. I really enjoy designing with the 6x6 pad, the papers are already cut to such a versatile size.
I layered the gold confetti transparency over the 4x6 closeup of the corsage and boutonniere. I used the gold foil cardstock letters and letter stickers for the title. I embellished the page with the "The Perfect Day" chipboard banner, gold foil "Lovely Day" from the mixed bag, "Picture This" label sticker, "Picture Perfect" chipboard, and decorative brads. Then I sprinkled confetti from both "Fancy That" and "On Trend" to echo the confetti on the transparency for that magical touch!

Have a wonderful Easter Weekend!
Hi - this is Tamara. One of my FAVORITE things about Easter is making and giving away little treats. Confession time - Cadbury mini eggs are one of my greatest weaknesses (good thing they are only available once a year). Who wouldn't love to receive a little package of these delights? I used the soft pastel and gold foil papers from the fabulous new "On Trend" and Fancy That" collections - perfect for spreading Easter cheer.
I took two containers/packaging for MME decorative tapes and re-purposed them.
I removed the paper insert from the clamshell package and used it as the template for the triangle paper. I inserted the cut paper and placed the "Today is the Day" label sticker on the package. I threaded the sheer white ribbon through the brad, inserted it into the "Happy Days are Here" card, and tied it to the top of the package.
I removed the label from the clear acrylic decorative tape cylinder with a little hot water. (Goo Gone helped take off the residue). I added gold foil dot tape around the bottom. For the tag, I trimmed a gold striped journal card from the "Fancy That" line, added the "happy" rub-on, and "Easter" with letter stickers from "Just Sayin". I attached the white ribbon with the aqua brad, tied it to the top of the container, and added the flower flair button.
For the card, I cut a 7 1/2" x 9" piece of the gold foil word paper and folded it in half. I trimmed the striped foil paper from the 6x6 pad and stitched around the card. I added the "Happy" aqua journal card, "Easter" using foil letter stickers, "Let's Celebrate" sticker, and decorative brad.
Supplies: On Trend: Happy paper, Gems paper, journal card, flair button, rub-on, decorative brads; Fancy That: 6x6 paper (gold foil stripe), journal card, sticker sheets; Just Sayin': Alpha and Word stickers; Necessities - Metallics decorative tapes container; Collectable - decorative tape clamshell package; Misc: sheer white ribbon, pink thread and Cadbury Eggs.
