My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose Hazel Collection








{Reported by: Mandy Starner}






My Mind's Eye is a company that has been creating beautiful, vintage inspired products for a few years, now. This winter, My Mind's Eye (MME for short) released a collection titled Stella and Rose, this includes 4 different collections; Hazel, Hattie, Mabel, and Gertie. How cute are those names? Almost makes me want to have another kid, just to name them something cute like Hattie or Hazel. But I digress. Today, I will be telling you all about the Hazel collection. This collection has my newest favorite color combination: gray, pink, and teal, with a little bit of lime. My Mind's Eye has done an excellent job mixing patterns including stripes, lace, and polka dots... all the things you need for a soft, vintage, girlie project.


What I liked:

-The paper has the perfect weight and texture to it. You can distress it, ink it, tear it...
-There is no shortage of embellishments for this collection. You have frames, brads, trim, stamps, stickers, layered stickers, chipboard...
-The patterns are just gorgeous. They do "vintage" perfectly.


What I disliked:

- I wish there were some alphabets with this collection, especially in the font that is used in the Stella and Rose label.
-I really love the banner labels, I wish there were more of those, in a plain style so that I can add what I wan to them.


What I made:


A Thank you card.

I loved this collection when I saw it in the sneak peeks and it looks even more gorgeous on seeing it again here. I adore MME and am always in love with all their stuff. I love the idea of the grey mixed in - been wanting to do some layouts using that. Happy Monday and thanks for the review!

I LOVE it but don't HAVE it! Thanks for a chance to win! Your projects are so darling! I would never have thought grey could be so pretty!!!

Connie Kuhn said...

I love this collection, what great color combinations. I had an Aunt Hattie & my Mom was Gertrude so I think it would be great fun scrapping their photos on this vintage paper. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

I love the brads! I have the Stella and Rose Mabel Love decorative brads and they are all so pretty! The plain ones and the fancy ones! The little woodgrain brad? And the clock brad? And the brads that have little tags dangling from them? So cute! And the colors or gorgeous! My only complaint is that the pearl brads, while gorgeous, are verrrrrrrry dimensional. Very. But I love them, too!

I love that color combo too, reminds me of BG a little, but with a more modern-vintage flair (is there such a thing?) And MK's projects make it ALL look marvelous!!!

MME is one of my favorite manufacturers and I just love this line! Looked at in in store today and told my LSS owner that I wished I had $100 to drop on this post-CHA product extravaganza! I'd love to win and would totally enjoy using their products (especially the decorative brads since I most frequently just buy their papers).

Laura said...

This is a really cute collection, however, I agree with you and the idea of stickers in the title font...or at least some chip!! I like the paper, so I will probably end up with at least a few select sheets...maybe even the entire pack! LOL!
