Welcome to another edition of Freebie Friday! Today we’re going to spotlight another fun paper collection by My Mind’s Eye, I’m going to share with you five different projects I made using that collection, I’ll give you details about this week’s give-away, aaaaand, I’m going to announce the winner from last week’s Freebie Friday!
I was first “introduced” to My Mind’s Eye at CHA (Craft and Hobby Association Trade Show) in Chicago this past summer. I had never heard of them before and didn’t really own any of their product. Soph and I just happened to be walking by their booth, when their bright colorful display caught our eye. As we browsed through the booth, we were struck by the wide variety of design styles you see in their products, and loved everything we saw. The sales representatives were also very friendly and helpful, and willing to work with us.
So you’ll definitely be seeing a lot more from their line. For today, we want to introduce you to this fun and bright collection called “12 Days of Christmas”. Our video below will give you a closer look:
Today we’ve created a series of projects to highlight the versatility of this collection. We have put together a free video tutorial and pdf handout for BOTH the pocket style gift card holder AND the CD Sleeve-Style Treat holder The Lollypop box is a Paper Crafter’s Library exclusive available as a Silhouette cut file, or as a downloadable PDF to Paper Crafter’s Library members only. All the projects are simple yet elegant, and can easily be adapted to other holidays.
We are also giving away the My Mind’s Eye Mischievous Collection pack you see pictured above to ONE lucky winner…..more details on how to enter at the end of this post
The first project today is this sweet Pocket Gift Card Holder. It’s held shut by a ribbon closure, and when you open it up you see the gift card tucked into the pocket inside. We have a free video tutorial with handout for this video HERE.
The next project is a CD Slevve-Style Treat Holder. The template is an original one I created that was inspired by a decorated CD sleeve I saw in the most recent issue of Paper Crafts Magazine. I wanted something smaller to hold just a few treats. Other products featured for this project include the Spellbinder’s Grand Calibur (which I did a review and video on last week), as well as Spellbinder’s Nestabilities and dies. You can watch a free video tutorial for this HERE.
I created a second gift card holder, this with a hook and loop closure:
When you open it up, the gift card pops up! Paper Crafter’s Library Members can view the video HERE.
I also created a set of two gift boxes which are perfectly sized to hold a generous amount of treats. Paper Crafter’s Library Members can view the video here.
Finally, I created this 12 x 12 scrapbook layout which you can see below. I glittered up the elements and created little wrapped candies out of cello using the swirly circular die cut elements from the kit. Paper Crafter’s Library members can view the video from here.
