I was so inspired by Ashley Calder’s trendy minty post at the beginning of this week, I decided to get a little minty myself. Although my minty stash pales in comparison to Ashley’s I had fun digging through my scrapbooking and crafting supplies to find all things mint! Some of the items are “very” new and some are “very” old.
Starting from bottom left then up and around: Glitter by Martha Stewart, a scrap of ribbon, random beads, vintage yo-yos, a Making Memories brad, alpha chipboard pieces by ki MEMORIES, a chipboard button by MME the sweetest thing, twine by Martha Stewart, heart and cupcake stickers by Claudine Hellmuth, a tag sticker by 3Birds, a stone bird bead, painted chipboard pieces from Jenni Bowlin Studio.
Beacause I didn’t have too many mint colored embellishments I decided to create a few of my own by using the JBS chipboard pieces and Claudine Hellmuth Studio Line acrylic paints. I first primed the raw chipboard pieces with Claudine Hellmuth Studio Line Gesso, then I mixed the Studio Line acrylic paints sky blue and yellow pastel to get the prefect shade of mint. On Claudine’s website she had an awesome color mixing chart that shows you how to create many fabulous colors with her paint line. Click here to check it out.
And here is my lovely palette, the lid of a cottage cheese container!
Above are rub-ons that I have purchased through HSN. They are all by 3Birds, except the Claudine Hellmuth cupcake. And below Berol PRISMACOLOR pencils in true green and light green. The cardstock is a light mint green as well.
And now for some papers. Starting at the left I have arranged them from oldest to new.
We have two sheets by K&Company, scrap cardstock, the torn sheet is daisyd’s, 6×6 minty sheets by Echo Park Parsdise Beach, Amy Tangerine’s minty houses, more minty cardstock scraps and a 12×12 Webster’s Pages with some minty dots.
And now for the alphas: 3Birds, OA, and Heidi Swap.
As Ashley said, you can find this minty trend in home decor and fashion. This is a detail of a sweater I had bought this spring. Who knew I was trendy?!
With all this mintiness on my mind, I couldn’t resist these delicious looking cupcakes from our local market. Yum!
I hope this post has gotten you in the mood for mint. If you haven’t already, be sure to check out Ashley’s post for some major minty inspiration by clicking here. I really enjoyed rummaging through my stuff with the mission to find everything and anything minty. It really made me look at the supplies I have in a new light. I plan to keep these minty supplies gathered on my table so I can incorporate them into my upcoming layouts and projects, keeping me on trend!
Now how about some dessert?
