Project Life Mojo!

Yesterday was Mojo Monday and this was their sketch.

Mojo 348 Sketch

With the new catalog going live yesterday, my head was spinning with so many new ideas yet it left me oddly with absolutely NO desire to do any stamping. What the? Then I spotted my Everyday Adventure Project Life Card Collection. As such they are for scrapbooking but I had to wonder.

Project Life AssistanceThree cards was all that it took: one for the background, one for the center, and one more for the embellishments as such. Three Candy Dots and a tea-doily sponged with Crumb Cake Classic Ink and Gold Metallic Ink were the final touches.

The “HI” was fussy-cut then covered with Liquid Crystal, as was the 1″ Circle that was adhered to the Essentials Wooden Embellishment. One of the off-cuts from the fussy-cutting was used for the banner which was put through the Decorative Dot Embossing Folder.

Oh, and if you think my tea-doily is a tad wonky, it is, lol! Having sponged the tea-doily I’d put it aside for the Metallic Ink to dry then promptly forgot about it. I did try to convince myself it wasn’t necessary but couldn’t do it so then had to cut three sides off the tea-doily before gluing them down. Crazy huh?!

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!

Finding my old MOJO!

Posted on

Oh yes, after creating (I originally wrote “doing” then thought to myself, that word underplays what was achieved so changed it!) that piece for Miss Ten’s teacher last week, I may have just found my old style. Proof is in the pudding as they say so no more dilly-dallying. I may be biased but I really like the end result of this card!

This is the sketch for this week from Mojo Monday that I based the card on. I have to admit my pledge of doing masculine cards is really REALLY going to be tested with the flowers that are always on these sketches each week. But that’s good, it has me thinking…


I began with the wonderful Soho Subway DSPI just can’t get enough of it! Which is where the large “&” sign originated, it’s on one of the sheets but I only discovered that after I cut the background pattern! As soon as I saw it I knew it had to be included. Combined then with the new Candy Dots, oh my! These Candy Dots look like brads but are self-adhesive and repositionable for a short time, yea BUT, there are also brads that they can go on if you’d prefer, woohoo!

I almost left the “&” on its own but soon realized words were needed so after much procrastination decided on two from the Loving Thoughts Stamp Set. This was also the perfect excuse to use The Open Sea Stamp Set – both on the Marina Mist Cardstock Circle and I used the compass stamp as an embellishment. I did this by stamping in three times, cutting it down a little more on each one then after assembling it with Stampin’ Dimensionals, covered it with Crystal Effects. I have a love/hate relationship with this product as it takes a good three hours to set (overnight is better) but the effect is well worth the time!
