My Mind’s Eye Record It – Just Splendid

The last project I created for the My Mind’s Eye CHA booth this year was a mini album featuring their new Record It – Just Splendid collection. The colors and wood elements (Um, … Hello! WOOD Dots! Eeeeek!) of this set just make me smile. It would be a perfect set to record practically anything! I used it to record our 2013 Summer Vacation to Missouri and Illinois. Here’s a look through the book. (Hey! That rhymed! Hehe!)


I kept the overall design of the album fairly simple to go along with the clean lines of the Record It line. The pictures themselves are quite busy, so this seemed to work out really well!


I used my Silhouette Cameo, the 6×6 paper pad from the collection, and cardstock scraps from my stash, to create decorative page dividers. The decorative tapes were perfect for adding colorful borders. I even used the tapes on the page protectors themselves.




I love all the words on the blue decorative tape. I snipped them apart and used them throughout the album to accent photos.






Tickets to vacation attractions, make great page accents!




I had a couple of maps and brochures that were too large to fit on the pages. I took them to my local copy store and had them reduce them to fit on the page.












I really love these 6×8 scrapbooks! They are the perfect size to hold vacation memories all together. It was such a fun trip and makes me excited for spending time with my family on vacations in the coming year.

Happy scrapping!


Now & Then Izzy

I love the colors of the My Mind’s Eye Now & Then Izzy collection. The collection also includes brand-new-to-My Mind’s Eye small flair pins. Even though their name says they are “small” these are actually a little larger than your typical flair buttons. I adore them! They are a fun size to switch things up a bit. I cut out the viewmaster circles from one of the patterned papers in the collection and accented the center of each one with a pin.




This photo is a snapshot of my son a few moments before his friends arrived for an impromptu birthday party. I thought it would be a good picture to go along with a list of the things he liked at the moment.


My Mind’s Eye Now & Then Izzy Collection: Smart paper, Dapper paper, Regard paper, Flair Pins, Enamel Shapes, Mixed Bag, 3×4 pack, Decorative Brads, Label Stickers, Buttons, 12×12 Chipboard

Thanks for coming by!


Organizing Tips at Noel Mignon and More MME

This week on the Noel Mignon Blog, everyone has been sharing their tips for organization and today is my turn. My room is in a constant state of reorganization as I figure out what works best for my creative process, and the constant flow of products in and out of my space. Some of the ideas, I have shared here before, and some I haven’t. If you’d like to take a tour through my space and see what bins and methods have worked for me (and might work for you), be sure to stop on over and say hello!

Scraproom photos are always annoyingly clean, right?! Just so you know that my space NEVER looks that clean, here is a little “behind-the-scenes” of all the stuff I had to move off my counters and floors and into the hallway to get my photos. Hehe! Just keepin’ it real! 🙂



And since I don’t have a Noel Mignon project to share this week … how about I share another My Mind’s Eye CHA page? This one was created with the My Mind’s Eye Now & Then Mildred Collection.



My Mind’s Eye Now & Then Mildred Collection: World paper, Shine paper, Framed paper, 6×6 paper pad, 12×12 chipboard, Enamel Shapes, Decorative Brads, Mixed Bag, Alpha/Tiny Word Stickers


I had fun layering a bunch of the chipboard elements together on this page. I love how the new collections have metallic elements mixed in. It was fun to add pops of bright color to the gold hearts with the enamel shapes.


Thanks for taking time today to read my blog! Wishing you a creative and relaxing weekend!


My Mind’s Eye Now & Then Dorothy Page

I promised that I would share with you the projects I created for the My Mind’s Eye CHA booth this year, and then got sidetracked for a couple of days. Sorry about that! I didn’t mean to leave you hanging. 🙂

The fabulous Jen Allyson has designed a new range for My Mind’s Eye called Now & Then. I always love working with Jen’s collections, and was thrilled when I was able to play with her new lines and create three layouts for the show. Here is the first of the three, using the Dorothy color scheme.



My Mind’s Eye Now & Then Dorothy Collection: Charmed paper, Blossom paper, Happiness paper, Spirited paper, 6×6 paper pad, “Wild & Free” Mixed Bag, Enamel Shapes, Decorative Brads, Stickers, 12 x 12 Chipboard, 3×4 pack



I used the “Happy” from the Happy Birthday chipboard elements (you could also spell out “Happy Day”) for the title and then accented it with several heart elements. I used chipboard, die cuts, stickers, and the new enamel shapes. I ADORE the hearts and numbers!!! I gotta stock up on some more of those babies!



For the smaller photos, I used a polaroid die cut from the mixed bag and then a 3×4 card. The flowers are from the 12 x 12 chipboard elements.




I don’t have a close up shot of it, but the little tag that I tied around the photo comes from the Decorative Brads. I removed the brad, punched a hole where the brad was, and then added an eyelet.

Thanks for taking a peek at my page! I’ll share the rest of my My Mind’s Eye projects with you here-and-there over the next week.
