My Mind's Eye Ooh La La! 21 comments

For Him, For Her and everything in between!

I always look forward to the new releases from MME, and this one didn’t disappoint! It includes their fabulous heavy-weight, double sided papers and coordinating die-cut embellishment sheets. Ooh La La has two sets of papers- For Him and For Her.

For Him
I don’t usually scrap a lot of mainly “him” layouts, but I found this line really worked for any subject or occasion. The subtle color combo of cream, greenish blues and a pop of yellow compliment many photos.
The first one I did with this line was a picture of my husband and I. The nine double-sided papers really give you a lot of pattern options, which is great for layering. I picked a few of the greenish papers and the striped one for the little bit of yellow. These colors really went well with a neutral kraft background and some distressing. Included in the die-cut sheet is the bracket journaling spot, the cute little tags I tied around the bracket and the little yellow photo turns for one last bit of color.

The second layout had more outdoor photos- these of a fun day our family spent together this spring. I used some of the lighter papers in the line for this one, with a strip of dark brown cardstock for an accent. There are also several papers in this line with large patterns, which can be a bit intimidating sometimes. I used one of these papers by cutting it into thin strips and placing it alongside the cardstock strips. I needed a large area to journal on, so I traced a piece of chipboard from a mini album and cut it out of the main piece of background paper. I used more die-cuts from the embellishment sheet- the flowers, circles and cute tickets were just the little touches I needed to finish off this page.

For Her
The colors in this line are some of my favorite to scrap with. These papers had fun, bold patterns and I loved every single one of them. Of course, more die-cuts were included in this line, too- you’ll see I used just about every one of them!
The fun pink polka dot paper was a perfect match for my daughter’s new raincoat. I used the turquoise paper with smaller dots and my favorite paper in the pack- the stripes- as the other papers. Ten pieces from the die-cut sheet were used on this layout: the label strips I journaled on, a frame peeking out from behind the large photo, the small journaling circle, the photo turns, the little tickets and a piece of one of the border strips.

These colors are great for flowery, girly summer photos and I had the perfect photo for them. I chose a monochrome paper for the background and one of the busier, larger patterned papers. Again, cutting the larger patterns into smaller pieces can make them easier to work with and less overwhelming. From the die-cut sheet, I cut the bracket shaped journaling spot to fit under my ribbon, used one of the border strips and added a few flowers. I used a light colored paper to mat my photo, then cut several butterflies from that paper to embellish the page.

These papers made putting together a few cards a quick and easy project.
