MME Frightful Wall Hangings

Happy day to everyone!  Are you starting to think about Fall and Halloween, yet?  I am already!  Fall is my favorite time of year, so I start thinking about everything that goes along with it as soon as Labor day passes.  Today I wanted to share with you a home decor project I did to help decorate my house for Halloween.  I used the cute new My Mind's Eye Frightful Bundle.

I picked up the cute wood ghost and wood pumpkin from my local hobby store.  I then painted each one black, covered it with paper and painted the edges with black a little for some added dimension.  Then proceeded to embellish until I liked the small clusters of items.  I am super happy with how they turned out.  Now to find a good place to hang them in my house for the Halloween season.


A few close-ups of the pumpkin:

Make sure you hop over to FotoBella and snag a bundle of your own before they are gone.

Have a beautiful day! Smiles, Jessica

Sleigh Bells Ring 2 Pager

     I'm so glad I held onto these older Christmas photos of my son, because they were meant to be scrapped with the new Sleigh Bells Ring I want it all bundle by My Mind's Eye from FotoBella! Just look at how perfect his shirt matches that paper! Sorry for the weird photo, but in real life the plaids all align together.

     I took my inspiration from this sketch.

     All of the stitching was stamped, as well as the flourish coming from the sleigh. I used the Word/Alpha Stickers for the year and the banner. Christmas, the Bingo card, Santa, the snowflakes, sleigh, and small circles come in the Mixed Bag, which still has so many goodies left in it. I used the Wood Dots to attach the banner, and for the center of the red snowflake on the right photo. 

     I used all but one of the Decorative Tapes on both pages. I added the Enamel Shapes to the black snowflake and snowflake on the sleigh. I used a notebook stencil and Distress Inks (Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint), to create the border under the gingham paper. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Joyous Noel Advent Calender

It's never too early to start planning ahead! Especially when you are planning fun and festive Holiday Decor!

For this Joyous Noel Advent Calender I combined a sparkly Noel Banner with the Advent Calender. This way, as you take down the days one by one, you still have a Holiday Banner.
I covered some of the clothespins with Blue Snowflake Decorative Tape from the Joyous Bundle by My Mind's Eye, and added some Pinwheels to each end. I made 2 strips of Decorative Tape, and hung them on each side of the Banner. This is what I clipped the tags to. For the Banner, I used a strand of Large Link White Plastic Chain.

MME + Sleigh Bells Ring = Joy

     Joy was the look on my face upon first opening up my new Sleigh Bells Ring I want it all bundle, by My Mind's Eye, from FotoBella! I fussy cut around this adorable photo of my son from 2005 to add to the middle of the O in JOY.

     I used some Distress Inks, (Mowed Lawn and Pine Needles), to go around the zigzag edges of the striped paper and the bow. I hand-stitched the circle in red and white, and added some green fiber around it. I also hung the bell ornament with some stitching, which I got from the Mixed Bag, as well as the small circle of berries and the BE MERRY tag, which I placed right below the striped Decorative Tape. Over the tape I placed the snowflake circle with the Decorative Brad. The date was done with the Word/Alpha Stickers, which I absolutely LOVE!!

Thanks for looking!

My Mind's Eye Jubilee...what a fabulous collection!  You can find it at  The I Want It All Bundle is packed full of goodies.  Apryl, Design Team member sharing a layout featuring selfies of my son and I when he was a little guy.  

I think this was when selfies weren't cool yet?  Not sure...but they are pretty cute, nonetheless.

When you get your bundle you will not be disappointed.  just look at these fun embellishments.  Gold letters, enamel dots, the bicycle, it's all sooo cute!  

And then there's the pennants, I always love those!

Joyous Layout Tutorial

Joyous Layout

Dear Santa Page
Noel Page
North Pole Page
Merry Page
Decorative Tape
Alpha & Word Stickers
Decorative Tags
Brown Ink Pad
Double Sided Tape
Photo Sizes:
3” x 3”
Paper Cutter

Find the Dear Santa Page from your bundle, this will be the Layout page.
With the North Pole Page, cut a couple of Trees, any size you would like. Mine are 2.75”x8” and 3.5”x6”.
Using Seedless Preserves Distress Ink, ink the edges of the trees.
With a brown ink pad, ink the edges of the Dear Santa page.

Find the Noel Page and cut this design out. Notch the edges, or keep square, whichever you prefer. Slightly ink the edges with your brown ink pad.

Find your adorable Christmas morning picture and crop it down to 3”x3”
With the Merry Page, cut a slightly larger mat for the picture.
Find the round Joy Decorative Tag and ink the edges with your brown ink pad.

Now start layering!
I started with a couple stripes of the Decorative Tape. Feel free to add how much or how little you want.

I placed the glitter cutout, the trees, picture and tag on top of the Decorative Tape. From here I decided whether to add more tape under them or not. If you are content, then using double sided tape, secure all of your layers.
Now you can add a couple strips of Dear Santa… Decorative Tape, a few Word Stickers and some Gems.

I added a few more Gems in the top corner of the picture as well.

And your Joyous Layout is now finished!

Joyous Gift Tag

So picture this: You are running late for a birthday party, you grab the gift and notice you forgot to attach a gift tag!
The only paper you have on your craft table is the new Joyous I Want It All Bundle by My Mind's Eye ... and it's only August! What do you do?
Well that's what is so great about the Bundles from FotoBella! Each bundle is so versatile and there are papers or embellishments that can be used individually for other themes and events.

I needed a gift tag today for this Pallet Wine Rack I made, so I grabbed this beautiful Flourish Page, cut a circle, inked the edges with the Mustard Seed Distress Mini, punched a hole at the top and tied it with some Jute. 
It matches the gift perfectly!
