No Mojo?

So all week long I've felt like I've had no mojo. But after looking at all I made this week I'm thinking that I either I did okay without mojo, or I had at least some mojo, lol.

Supplies: Life Delights Paper Pack and Stickease; Tag Book; Chipboard Alphas and Flowers; Gold Eyelets; Lilac Mist, Blush, and Chocolate CS; Garden Green Safety Pin; Blush dot ribbon; All CTMH

I started with this tag book since I couldn't get in the mood to scrap earlier this week, but have been wanting to use up my old papers. I've had this little tag book since I signed up with CTMH almost 2 years ago, lol. Just easy peasy stuff using life delights and the matching stickease. It used up most the rest of my papers so that made me happy :D

Supplies: Life Delights Paper Pack and Stickease; White Daisy Paper Flowers; Hollyhock Accents and Ricrac; DE Bookplates; Boutique and Sans Small Alpha Stamp Sets; Chocolate, Cocoa, and Col White CS; All CTMH

I used almost all the rest of the scraps of my Life Delights paper with this layout. I have one scrap left. It's of the butterfly paper and I already have an idea of what to use it on. So one more page and my life delights will be another paper pack to add to the list of all used up ^_~
This was my huge use-up-all-of-this-paper-pack-now project that took me about 4 days. I have had this paper F-O-R-E-V-E-R, lol. So I thought I needed to just use it up. Here are the 7 pages I made from this paper. I created only one layout way back when and had nearly the entire paper pack to use when I started this project.

I used the Imagine book for this first one. I've never used this layout before because I was always intimidated by the slanted cut photos but they were actually really easy to do. Everything CTMH on this layout except the rubons on the Temple picture, they are from Basic Grey.

It's been a long time since I've used a Cherish layout and this is another sketch I've never used before either just because I usually like to only do 2 page layouts when I have 5 or more pictures. But I really wanted to keep this one open and even with all the space, I like the way it turned out. All products CTMH.

The layout that I did forever ago was of one of Audrey's Blessing portraits. She was holding a red rose and just looking at it and I had bought these papers just for that. These were some of her at home blessing pics and I thought I might just use these up to go along with the theme I started. This one uses a new Aug '08 pagemaps layout. I altered it to fit more pictures. The transparency overlays are by My Minds Eye, the rhinestones are just regular craft rhinestones and all the rest is CTMH. On all three of these double page layouts I used the B&T as my base pages as well instead of cardstock. This helped use up the papers quicker as well as not using up my cardstock which I want to use with new papers :D

And this was the last layout of this set to use up all those funny shaped scraps. I didn't embellish very much on this one since it already has so much going on with the layers, and it felt a bit like a quilt so I simply added some edge stitching to bring it all together. And yay this paper pack is now history! I'm going to try to use up a lot of old papers this month since the new CTMH catty has come out. I won't get to order anything this month, but hopefully by September I'll have a crafting budget again and can get some new fun stuff ^_~

The tag book is beautiful - if that is losing your mojo you should do it more often. Nice layouts as well, but I think all your layouts are gorgeous!
