My Mind's Eye Newsletter Posts 1.0

This is the first project that I made for the My Mind's Eye Newsletter! I'm really excited to share them with you! I hope you like them. They are both using the My Mind's Eye: Lost and Found Two: Breeze line. LOVE the Lost and Found lines and this one is no exception! It makes it easy to create with pretty papers!

Tomorrow I will be sharing a card made with the Artful Delight kit, Wednesday will be the second card in my Pumpkin Spice Kit, and Thursday will be the card that is in the My Mind's Eye Newsletter!


The links below to the Lost and Found Two collection aren't up yet, but they will be super soon, so check back in a couple of days!


  1. Using Summer in Paris Cartridge cut the Arc de Triumph out of black cardstock and Breeze “Precious Motif Paper” at 5.5 inches.
  2. Also using the Summer in Paris Cartridge cut the Eiffel Tower at 10.75 inches. Using scissors, cut off the top flag. It will be replaced by a My Mind’s Eye sticker! :)
  3. Cut the “Precious” Motif Paper at 1.5x12” for the strip on the right hand page and 6.25” x 1.5” for the strip on the left hand page. 
  4. Using scissors, cut the 6.25” x 1.5” strip at angles to make a snake’s tongue cut. 
  5. Cut black cardstock for the photo mats at 3.25” x 11” and 10” x 4.5”. 
  6. Cut the Breeze “Fun Day” Today Paper at 8.5x 7 3/8”.
  7. Cut the Breeze “Dream” Wallpaper Paper at 5” x 5”.
  8. Cut the Breeze “Boyish” Handsome Paper at 7 3/8” x 11” and 1” x 7 3/8”.
  9. Add a layered sticker as a flag using the Breeze “Dream” Layered Stickers™
  10. Using your hole puncher, punch two small holes on the edges of the die cut “Beauty is Everywhere” and in the corners of the bottom of the Eiffel Tower.
  11.  Use ribbon to tie bows through the holes. 
  12.  Adhere all base layers down on both pages.
  13.  Using foam dimensionals add the Eiffel Tower.
  14.  Using Foam dimensionals add the photo mats. 
  15.  Stamp “You have all of my love” in black using the Dream stamps. 
  16.  Embellish and journal! :) 

    I also made this for the Cricut Circle weekly challenge this week: scrapbooking some vacation! I had SUCH a fabulous time in Paris with my handsome husband so naturally Summer in Paris was a PERFECT cartridge for that trip! 

    I am a very proud Circlet so if you have any questions about it, let me know! It's an open enrollment period where you can sign up for another year!
