Selfies scrapbook page

An adorable page by Stephanie Buice on our mambi Design Team.  She wrote me a cute little write up about her page and I just loved it:  

I love pictures of my Son and I and so does he, he even calls them "elfies". I wanted a layout to document a bit of the process

I go through to get a winner. There's really no science to get a 2 year old to sit still and smile so my trick is to make funny faces into the camera and he does the same. He's always jumping up and moving around so that leaves me with tons of blurry photos but I guess that's what makes them so special. So even though it may take 20 or 50 shots to get a half decent one they all seem to capture my crazy ants in your pants little boy.

The fun colors in mambi's new embellishments made it so easy for me to add a fun and funky style to my layout. I layered some of the new die cute cards in an instant over some patterned paper and I really like the mixed matched feel they gave. I wanted this layout to be sunny and bright with lots of different layers. I added some mambi chips and mambi sticks to finish it off. Hope you like it!  

Just love this page.  So bright, fun and such a cute story about Stephanie and her son!  Stay crafty and hope this page inspires you!  Stay tuned for more and stay crafty!

Baby Blocks

A cute DIY craft for a baby gift, decor for a baby room ... so many options.  Alice Golden made these adorable baby girl blocks.  It would be so easy to swap out the pink cards and embellishments for blue.  You can even stick with green or yellow if you don't know the gender of the baby.  


I've been working on my personal pages and loving these coordinating goodies.  POCKET PAGES™ cards and stickers that all go together.  Talk about making it easy on us scrapbookers.  I did this page out of my trip to Thailand in about 5 minutes.  Can't top that!  If I keep going like this I'll be done in no time!  

These POCKET PAGES™ cards are available at Hobby Lobby stores and in the mambiSHOP!  I included the layout of all the cards so you can see them all!  I love how they can be used for so many different things!  

Look, coordinating stickers too!!!

POCKET PAGES Birthday Page

An adorable birthday page by April Orr on our mambi design team.  I love how she had her cute little 7 year old write on one of the cards!  Capturing their little handwriting at the age of the pictures, I love that!  

Here are links to the products in the mambiSHOP that April used:

I just love April's style, she can make a page simple or complex but they're always awesome!  Love this template for a birthday layout.  So easy to follow!

Jumbo Sticker DIY Binder

Jen Randall and her daughter did a great quick DIY project using the new jumbo stickers. Her daughter needed a new binder for school so they grabbed an inexpensive 1 inch binder and decided to give it a little mambi magic makeover.  It was very "blah" just plain white.  So, they chose a jumbo sticker from the Inspirational pack that they thought would work best.  Then they mounted it on a pretty yellow 12 x 12 sheet from the Mixed Media paper pad, taped that onto an aqua paper from the Cool Kids paper pad to give it some contrast.  Jen's daughter choose the darling white & yellow polka dotted paper from that same pad to use as the base, she has good taste, just like her talented mother.  Jen cut it to the size needed to slip into the binder sleeve easily.  After they put it all together they added some fun sparkly stickers from the Teal & Green chipboard mambiCHIPS.  Finally, they slipped it into the binder sleeve. Now, it's SUPER cute and ready for school!!
