My Mind's Eye Lost & Found 2 Blush









{Reported by: Mandy Starner}






Have you seen the sparkly goodness that is My Mind's Eye Lost and Found 2 Blush? Holy wow!
I have to be honest with you, I was afraid this collection might be a bit too girly and vintage for me. But not anymore! I am in LOVE! My Mind's Eye has outdone themselves with this release! The patterns are great together, you have dark bold stripes mixed with soft pale patterns, and LOTS of sparkle, creating the perfect contrast.  The double sided, heavy weight papers are just right for distressing, inking, die cutting and punching. And the embellishments... oh my! Often times, I will find a collection that I love, but they don't have enough embellishments to get you (or maybe its just me) through more than a couple projects. With the Blush collection, you have die cut titles, stamps, brads, pearls, dimensional stickers, and chipboard too! There is plenty to go around! If you are already familiar with My Mind's Eye collections, you know that each one is broken down into smaller, "mini collections", if you will. The smaller collections all coordinate beautifully with each other and they all have different embellishments so you aren't seeing too many repeating images. Okay, enough rambling from me, here is a breakdown of what I thought...

What I liked:
-These fabulously sparkled papers don't leave me feeling like I need a shower after using them! Of course, they loose a bit of glitter, here and there but for the most part, that glitter is here to stay!
- The patterns are just right. The perfect combination of soft and bold patterns make this a wonderful vintage, girly collection.
- You really can't beat the weight of My Mind's Eye papers. They are perfect for distressing and die cutting.

What I didn't like:
- The stamp images are perfect for cardmaking, but I would like to see some of them a bit bigger. I felt like they were too small for a layout.
-That really was about it. It truly was a pleasant surprise to work with this collection.

I second your opinion on this collection. It is wonderful. I love MME and both Lost and Found collections are my favorites. Thanks for sharing the beautiful projects.

I am in love with this collection! I have already bought a few sheets of the paper, but definitely need more!

Gabrielle said...

Great layouts. I'm always impressed with MME. I love the weight of their paper and pieces, and I definitely love Lost & Found II more than the original Lost & Found that came out last year :)

I love the patterns but the glitter I really can leave. I've unpacked them for my LSS before & made mini album kits with other MME glittery lines... it's a huge mess. I would love to try again since the patterns are so great to see if you are right that the glitter staying put is better. Love the brads

sharon g said...

I love the classic look. I guess I'm sort of girl/vintage myself, because I LOVE it. I tend to love their products anyway... sharon dot gullikson at gmail dot com

Gorgeous paper! It's on my wish list! Rebeccacell@gmail dot com

Kelly Sas said...

I KNOW I WILL buy this collection (unless I win it, LOL)! What you made with it makes me want it all the more. I don't like bright girly, floral, but this muted pinks and old fasioned look is the only girly stuff I love.

Melissa said...

Love your projects and this collection! I agree with you about the stamp sizes, but I still like them! :)

Gab said...

Karen L said...

oOOOH, yummy!! I really love this! The pink isn't too bright, and it's girlie but not over the top. I even like the stamps, because I'm a big card maker!!

SHartl said...

Love this collection! Pink with black is a great combination and when you mix it with kraft...well, perfection! I like the stamp sizes for cards but you could also layer smaller images to make embellishments for layouts.

cutiephinphin said...

I definitely love this collection. I have the 6x6 paper pad and I'm actually hoarding it as much as I can. I love the buttons & brads too. Just gorgeous patterns and colors.
