Frame Ups-- 10th Anniversary

Remember these? In celebration of their 10th Anniversary, My Minds Eye has re-released some new designs of these cute little gems.

Paper Pals has been selling My Minds Eye since Karen started the business 8 years ago! DT Kristi even remembers getting some Frame Ups at the store when her daughter was just a preschooler. And now we get to play with them again!

The Design Team was challenged with using several of the newly released Frame Ups. It was a big challenge-- and I think the ladies were super creative with these ultra cute products. Here's some layouts they created:

One by Leah with "Happy Campers":
Krist's layout using "Hanging Out":

Two layouts from Judy with "Pool Time":

Angela used "School Days" on two layouts:

And Anita made a layout with "Skate":

Pretty darn CUTE, eh?

Here are some cards by the design team using more of the Frame Ups:

So, which cute little package will you choose? Paper Pals has 12 sets of them!

Old World Cabbage

Jillibean Soup is making a play to be a new favorite of mine. I love the boldness of their colors and patterns and I found it really easy to coordinate their papers for this layout.

Like Suzy said, sometimes you just know the story you're going to tell when you see the paper, and that was certainly true for me. The Old World Cabbage line gave me a nostalgic feeling that I reflected in the story of my daughter abandoning her favorite childhood hat.

And then of course I made some cards.

Love the boldness of this one.

Love the whimsy of this one.

... and working with this great line of paper!

Fancy That!

Here are a couple of gift boxes and cards I made using the Decorative Packing Tape from Fancy That! It's just like a roll of regular packing tape, only WAY more beautiful; the tape itself is colored and the designs you see in white are clear. I think it would be cool to decorate boxes you're going to ship. How fun would it be to send someone special a fancy box in the mail?
You might even brighten the day of the clerk in the mail room.

Scrapping Sports & More... How about Farming???

When I first saw this paper and the stickers/die cuts that paired with it, I knew the perfect picture. Actually, being a farmers wife .... I've plenty of pictures, but this one picture had been waiting for 'that' paper. This line of patterned paper & embellishments are from Scrapping Sports & More! "Down on the Farm".

This picture was taken the morning after we had finished harvest and my husband was driving away from the field. Keep watching our blog to see more of what I've done with this line on some cards I've created. Happy Farming ... and scrapping!

My Minds Eye - Lil Robots

One thing I've discovered as a scrapbooker is that I L.O.V.E. paper and change my mind quite often on what my favorite paper to work with is.  Having two grandsons, it doesn't seem like I can get enough of the 'boy' papers that are out there.  The My Minds Eye - Lil Robots paper ROCKS!  The accessory die-cuts were alot of fun to use with the paper collection.
