Monday Magic Creation #6 (MMC6) – Mix & Match B&T Duos

Welcome to the Monday Magic Creation challenge, hosted by me, Pamela O’Connor, your Close To My Heart Independent Consultant.

Let me share how it will work. Each Monday at 10 am CST, I will post a new scrapbook layout pattern featured in CTMH's all-new scrapbook how-to program, Magic. I will share with you my completed scrapbook layout using the featured pattern and challenge you to play along with me.

So, lets get started!

(Don’t have Magic yet? Order your copy HERE.)

This week’s (10/25-10/31) Monday Magic Creation challenge feature’s the Magic pattern on page 30 called Deck of Cards.

Here is my Monday Magic Creation for week 6 (MMC6)…

Going along with my theme of scrappin’ memories and events in October, I decided to make this week’s creation using photos that I took this past Friday night of my son playing in the band during half-time at the football game. This also gave me the opportunity to journal about his accomplishments and goals while he’s been in band.


This layout came together so simple! Our school colors are red & black, so I dug through some retired, retiring and new B&T papers to get the colors and patterns I wanted to use.

The Black B&T paper is from an oldie, but goodie paper packet called Giggles & Grins. The Desert Sand B&T paper is from a retiring paper packet called Stardust and the Cranberry B&T paper is from our new Mistletoe Creative Basics Kit.

I used Bamboo Cardstock and Colonial White Cardstock for my neutral colors.


For the title, Cougar Band, I sponged Black ink onto the Irresistibles Lots of Dots Stickers. These stickers come white and you can color them using Sponge Daubers & ink or markers. They have embossed dots on them already so the ink doesn’t fill them in. Makes for a pretty quick and easy title.


I used a few leftover Game On My Stickease to fill in the year and add some border accents.


I also used some stars from the Dimensional Elements Snowflakes package and covered them in Bamboo Cardstock and sanded the edges to give them a distressed looked and then inserted a Black brad into the center of it one.


To play along with me, create your own scrapbook layout using the above featured pattern from Magic and upload your creation to your blog or online gallery. Then leave a link to your creation using the linky widget at the bottom of this post.

There is no time limit - you can always play any week at any time, but I will close the linky form each Sunday night at 11:59 pm (CST). That way there's no confusion which linky is the current one.

If you upload to online galleries, please use keyword/tag MMC6 for this week (10/25-10/31).


Have fun playing along with me!
