My Mind's Eye's Boy Crazy mini book + giveaway

Hello everyone...I'm back and partially on the mend from being sick. Unfortunately, I am not making the trip to St. Louis today for CKC :(  Susan and I decided it was better for her to find someone else to help out.  Hopefully I can go to the Scrapbook Expo in August. 
Anyway, I'm taking the day to just sit in my room and get caught up. I have felt so behind lately. 
Today I am sharing a mini book I created for The Scrapbooking Studio design team. I used
 My Mind's Eye's new Boy Crazy line. Love love love the colors and patterns!  The embellishments are pretty great too!  As always, MME doesn't disappoint.  There is coordinating washi tape and enamel dots! 

Here is my cover...I took white chipboard and sprayed it with Dylusions in Sunshine Yellow then covered with different pieces of the patterned paper. 
Title with letter stickers by Jillibean Soup and American Craft Thickers. I colored my wooden veneer arrow (Studio Calico) with Dylusions in Postbox Red. 

For the inside of the cover, I used my Mr. Huey mask and again used Postbox Red.  The word bubble is cut from the Silhouette. I added some of the chipboard pennants, as well as a cute star pin from Maya Road.

I tried to use up letter sticker throughout my's a great way to mix things up as well as use what is in your stash. Who knew one could have so many sheets of letter stickers!  And I  keep buying more!
This page is cut from the 12x12 Clear Scraps acrylic sheet.  Love using these as pages in mini books! 

 Here, I used one of the layered stickers...loving the robot theme. I also used more letter stickers from Jillibean Soup (I think I have them in every color!) and my new stamp set from Amy Tangerine's Yes Please. I stamped the ampersand onto patterned paper and popped it up with foam dots.

I made this insert out of a regular business envelope. I inked the edges with Fired Brick Distress Ink from Ranger and then covered with patterned paper and stickers. I adhered the inside together to create a mini card.
Here is the backside of the insert: I layered cardstock stickers, as well as the coordinating chipboard buttons. 

I also incorporated some of the journaling spots from October Afternoon that I had in my stash.

 The inside of the back cover...I used another cut file from my Silhouette and added the fun star washi tape and more buttons and enamel dots.
I will be back with more projects I created with this collection! Leave a comment and tell me your favorite MME collection and win a 6x6 paper pad of this line!
 Everyone have a fabulous weekend!


  1. Glad you are starting to feel better! I'm sure missing your trip is a bummer. I've been to several to shop and take part in but never on the vendor side. I'm sure it's fun. Love the book. What a fun mini to make. It's a great subject and a good memory to keep.

  2. Your mini book is fabulous! Glad you are on the mend. I really don't have a favorite MME collection because I love them all.
