My Mind's Eye: Stella & Rose~Hattie








{Reported by Karen Desmet}


My Mind's Eye
The Stella & Rose Collection - Hattie











For years, My Mind's Eye has created beautiful collections of papers, embellishments, paper frames and sentiment cards. Over the years these collections have been styled with a vintage yet modern appeal. The latest group of designs created by Jen Allyson for My Mind's Eye is no exception. Stella and Rose is made up of smaller groups of papers and embellishments featuring eclectic girls names: Gertie, Hazel, Mabel and Hattie. I had the luxury of having a playdate with Hattie and I enjoyed every minute of it! The Hattie group breaks down even further into five ensembles: Happy, Family, Remember, Buddies and Boy.


Each collection group is made up of two double sided pattern papers featuring four coordinating designs. Some of the pattern papers are die cut with decorative edges. These papers feature a textured design and the paper is more of a cardstock weight. The sticker embellishments are designed on the same weight paper and are made with a nice sticky adhesive. The clear stamps are a nice addition to the group and can work their way easily into a project featuring these designs.

These papers, embellishments and stamps were a pleasure to work with and I look forward to having 'playdates' with the other girls in the Stella and Rose collection!


What I liked:
-I love the colors and the vintage look to these papers and embellishments
-Even though the "Hattie" collection is broken up into 5 different ensembles, each ensemble coordinates and matches BEAUTIFULLY.
-Each sheet of paper is more like a cardstock weight and has a beautiful texture
-The embellishments are very high quality, simple and perfect for each of the papers
-Double sided papers = more bang for your buck!


What I didn't like:
-I would have loved a wider variety of ribbons
-While I love the texture of the paper, I had difficulties with adhesive adhering to the textured paper
-Double sided paper!! I have a very difficult time cutting into double sided paper for fear of needing or wanting the pattern on the other side



What I Made:

Home Sweet Happy Home

Supplies: Stella & Rose > Hattie Collection >Happy: pattern papers, embellishments, stickers; Ribbon courtesy of the Hattie Collection>Boy
Making Memories: "Home" chipboard; Adhesive

"So Happy To Have You" sticker with brad embellishment. The key is part of the brad embellishment.
Once again, beautiful brads with chipboard shapes attached. The brads have long backs, making them wonderful to use on thicker cardboard or multiple layers of cardstock. The ribbon from the Boy line matches perfectly.

My Boy
Supplies: Stella & Rose > Hattie Collection >Boy: pattern papers, ribbon, die cut frame, sentiment card (next picture). Button courtesy of the Hattie
Collection>Remember Other materials: kraft paper, adhesive


The pattern paper is such high quality and weight that it is perfect for cards or journal covers.


Remember the Friendship

Supplies: Stella & Rose > Hattie Collection >Remember: pattern paper, journal card, Remember sentiment card, clear stamps
(stamps: "date", the frames in the journal boxes and the dotted lines)
The clear stamps are WONDERFUL and produce crisp, sharp images!
Other Materials: Staz On Jet Black ink, Sharpie brown marker, adhesive, muslin strips (ribbons)

So Happy

Supplies: Stella & Rose > Hattie Collection >Family: pattern paper, transparency frame, embellishments. Ribbon courtesy of Hattie Collection>Boy
Other materials: adhesive


The embellishment stickers are 3-d and add the right dimension to this layout.

I love the colors in the collection you featured today. I love how all of the different papers and embellishments coordinate with each other. I have always loved the papers from My Mind's Eye because of their heavier weight and interesting textures. Anne, yourmainestamper

So funny that you mentioned the double-sided papers and not being able to decide . . . I usually have to buy two of a paper, just so I can have enough just in case I want to use both sides!! I think that My Mind's Eye's collection have really come a long way, and I love that they have trims and fun accents now. This is just a great collection, and I love what you created!!

Melissa said...

Beautiful projects! I love the Stella & Rose lines, and what you've done with them here.

Patchi said...

Beautiful collection - I love the "boy" colors! Your projects are a wonderful illustration of how versatile this collection can be. Thanks!

Gabi said...

Wicked, wicked cute!!! I love almost everything that MME puts out. I am always happy with their lines. I love the texture of their paper too and the weight. I'd never really used their details, but I got some lovely Hazel ribbon and other cute stuff, and well I'm in love!! What can I say? I would just JUMP for JOY if I got my hands on more of this line Stell & Rose!

wow, do I love pretty much everything MME puts out-- and this is no exception. I love that the colors in the Hattie colorway are "neutral" enough to use for any subject-- and yet they are still GORGEOUS!

I've always loved MME! The colours of this collection are so perfect for boys, thus the clever name! Photos of my boys would look amazing on those gorgeous papers! When I have trouble adhering to textured surfaces, I go with foam dots or scor-tape!

Jennifer said...

I love MME and how everything coordinates and all the different embellishments and... I could go on and on.

Kim M said...

CuddlyBunny said...

I don't always find time to comment on the Scrap Review items (I run through every one in my e-mail!), but this one I had to find a minute ...

All of these creations are beautiful, with obviously great products, but the last layout is so AWESOME!

The perspective from the photo helps, but it's the centered picture, surrounded by layers of repeating shapes ... and the off-set frame ... perfection!

Honestly, it's a beautiful page with a slightly 3D feeling jumping out from the middle ... very cool!

Arjanne said...

I seriously love MME, and especially the colors in this collection. Love the deep blue! I would love it if they made some alphasheets to go with the collections.

Shawninaz said...

I truly like this collection. The color scheme is fresh and works well for projects for my nephews. Love what you did with it!

Theresa said...

MME has really been making beautiful products/collections the past couple of years - this one is no exception. Love the colors - they could work for just about anything!

Marie Pilgrim said...

Love the greys and yellows of this line. The blues, too, but that grey/yellow pairing really does it for me. My all-time favorite MME product is the 4x6 transparencies. If MME ever discontinues those, I will cry.

Angela Fehr said...

I absolutely love all the Stella & Rose papers and embellishments. They are vintagey and I love that - and I love doublesided paper so that is a plus in my book! And I love that they include coordinating stamps with some lines!

NanaBeth said...

This one is a must have for me with all the boys in my family. I love the simple timelessness of this collection.I could use it for years and it would still make fresh and interesting projects.

I want this line sooooo bad. The colours are absolutely gorgeous. Love what you created!!!

Laura said...

WOW!!!! I will HAVE to own at least some of this paper! I see that it could be so versatile for many applications. I always have such a hard time finding CUTE papers that would work for masculine card/projects/pages, but I see that my search is now over!!! Thanks!
