Lost & Found TWO Breeze













{reported by Maren Benedict}






I am the proud mama of three boys. Let me tell you....finding scrapbooking products that appeal to ME and are still doable for those rough & tough photos is a chore. Can anyone relate? :) I was so excited to see the Lost & Found Two Breeze collection by My Mind's Eye. It not only captures the soft and pretty that I love but also is in a color scheme that is still masculine.


Ease of Use: The great variety of product in the collection gets those inspirational juices flowing: layered stickers  chipboard, decorative brads, pom poms trim, pearl swirls, various titles, buttons, label stickers, stamps and luscious glittered paper. It has it all!

Construction/Durability: The stamped paper is of the perfect thickness, easy to trim but sturdy enough to be a base. The products are well made, even the layered stickers stayed together.

Usefulness: The collection is suitable for cards or layouts and would be perfect for mini albums showing off my 'sweet' boys.

Cost Effectiveness: The prices are reasonable, especially considering the quality of the product.

What I liked:
-I loved the layered chipboard. It is embellished and ready to use.
-I also liked the acrylic stamps in the collection. The images lend themselves to both cards and scrapping.
-My favorite part of the line is the button collection. YUMMY! {i don't know if I can bring myself to ever using them---they are THAT adorable}

What I disliked:
-I would have liked if the pom pom trim was slightly smaller.
-Some coordinating dimensional alphabet stickers would finish off the collection perfectly, don't you think?
-I wish the paper had a bit less glitter. I ended up wearing it around all day. Ahh..the hazards of crafting.

What I made:

wonderful work.
I agree much easier to find things for girls - have to be flexible and adapt!
this may do the trick!
Thanks for the inspiration.

I love the colors in this. I am thinking besides using it for men maybe using it for older pictures. I love that package of stamps...so many possibilities there.

Honestly I've never tried to put glitter on my boy's page...But maybe that's because I hadn't seen this MME before! The glitter here is both elegant AND masculine. Love your page and card that you've made - just classic.
TFS!

Wow, your projects are great. Love the color scheme of this collection. The acrylic stamps are fantastic. I love them and I would definitely use them for my guys. joanvanc@gmail.com

Kelly Sas said...

My Minds Eye just proved that YES glitter can be masculine! This is the most versatile line to come out in a long, long time and I can't wait to get my hands on it. (unless I win it here, lol)

Maya said...

I love all Lost & Found collections! Totally agree with you - more alphas would be nice and the glitter is getting everywhere :) But I can live with it LOL

Glitter can for sure be masculine. The key is adding the right embellies. :) Love this beautiful line of paper. :)

Rebecca Ednie said...

I think glitter is really a girlie thing with the exception of maybe pages with a rocker vibe but even then, dark colours and not too much. However, I love this paper and have tons of uses other than masculine! Rebeccacell@gmail dot com

Jennifer said...

Love the colors in the Breeze line!

Lisa P said...

oh yes, I think if you can find the right colors and manipulate how much glitter there is you can make it work for masculine. Also depends on the pic. Love the pics of this line.

{VICKI} said...

nope, glitter is not masculine

Jennifer Cowan said...

MME is always a favorite and this line is no different. Love the blues!

Erica Hettwer said...

I love these lines and using glitter on guy pages doesn't bug me at all. It does however, bug my DH when he ends up with glitter all over him! LOL!

Melissa said...

Glitter can be masculine IMO! Love your projects!

ShoppingTamii said...

yes, glitter can be masculine ;)

JJ Sobey said...

the line is beautiful, but the amount of glitter it sheds is upsetting. When I saw puddles of glitter under the store display, I had to pass on the collection. :( Thermo-glitter would be a fantastic compromise (and I find it looks better on boy pages that way)

SHartl said...

Love it...and yes, glitter can definitely be masculine (well, not on the face though...ha ha!). I love the blue and green shades!

Linh C. said...

I'm using blues/greens for my daughters' pages because they're tweens and currently dislike anything pink.

Nitasha said...

Prior to seeing this line I would say no, but now I think...ummm, yeah, glitter can be masculine! This is a gorgeous line that I would love to try! Especially love the stamp set! Thanks so much for the inspiring projects!

I can't imagine using glitter on a masculine page. A baby page is different however b/c the main idea is baby, not masculine.

connie said...

yes it can be masculine! love the colors and stamps.

Karen L said...

Oh yes...the glitter would be fine for masculine projects! I LOVE the stamp set and the blue tones!

Renee said...

Very pretty, I don't think MME ever puts out something I don't like! Thanks for the chance 2 win :)

Melinda said...

Love that collection and yes, glitter can be masculine!

ferrellgraph-x said...

I love what you created with the new goodies! Fabulous! Glitter for men...not so much. Babies yes, but not the average man. I especially love that new stampset! Thanks for the peak at the newest designs!
Kindest regards,
Jennifer

Kim M said...

I have a few pieces of this and yes, glitter can be masculine. I used it and made a one page layout for my son and was so happy with the results, would love to have some more of it!

Savannah O'Gwynn said...

I love that this line from MME has glitter on the masculine pages--I think it's totally masculine (you just need to use it in a way that portrays that masculine theme). LOVE this line--and I LOVE your creations!!!

marla said...

This is another amazing collection by My Mind's Eye. I would LOVE to own more of the items from it!!

serena said...

I adore the Lost and Found collections from MME. I usually wait for a sale to buy my crafty stuff but these papers have inspired me to pay full price!!!

smahrty said...

not sure about the glitter, but i do like the masculine colors in this line.

ScrapMomOf2 said...

My Mind's Eye collections continue to impress me! LOVE this!!

Victoria S. said...

Love this. especially the blue polka dot glitter paper and the cute clear stamps!

Melanie said...

Love this boy line!!!

Jennie said...

Definitely it can be!!! Love MME and thanks for the chance!

lisa808 said...

Awesome sentiment on the paper.

darkchami said...

I love MME! They have a little something for everyone. I have no boys (other than my husband) but still gravitate towards the blue papers. I'm with you, though. That glitter sticks all over my clothes.
