Wishlist Fridays | Mambi Pocket Pages

Fridays on Go Crafty alternate between Pinspiration Fridays and Wishlist Fridays. Wishlist Fridays showcase some scrapbook or crafty products that I’m currently coveting. If you want to buy them for me, I wouldn’t be opposed. I’ll try to keep it craft related, but I love food so food could always make an appearance.

I was at my local Micheal’s this past weekend and I was walking around, trying to get a good look at everything. The store recently remodeled the inside so everything isn’t quite where it used to be. I’m assuming this is because of what seems like a huge influx of new products, and having to find a place for them. With pocket scrapbooking/pocket pages/project life taking off in a big way, there are so many new things available. The new Mambi Pocket Pages section stood out like crazy, and it was full of all new things I need. I’ll just have to wait and see if they pop up on Amazon,and then I can add them to my actual wishlist. Ha!

Here’s some Mambi pocket page products that I’m currently crossing my fingers for! (Images link to product page on Me & My Big Ideas Website)

Mambi Specialty Cards – You Are Awesome

Those ones kill me because they’re all covered in glitter and foil. The foil is my favorite part. If you click on the link, you can see the “You are Awesome” card nice and big and it looks shiny and amazing!

Mambi Specialty Cards – Fabulous

Mambi Journaling Themed Cards

Oh man. Is it awful that I want them all?! Like those journaling cards – you know how much I love journaling.  And especially the two specialty sets with the foil. I just love the shine and the brightness. This probably isn’t good for my bank account.

Oh, and did I mention I want these stickers to go with those cards? ‘Cause I do! I don’t think I’ve ever had white stickers before.

New Washer

Although we bought our new washer and dryer back in January, I’m just getting around to scrapbooking it now.

Of course, you might be wondering what I’m doing hugging a washing machine, but I’m pretty sure that everyone hugs their new appliances. Really, Tab and I were super excited about our new purchase. After living in our town home for a year and a half (and buying used furniture), we were finally able to buy something new. It was a big moment for us (not to mention the biggest purchase we’ve ever made outside of our house and car). I wasn’t thinking about my scrapbook at the time; all I knew was that I needed to post a photo of my new washer on Facebook.

And, y’know, hugging it just seemed right.

It was such an exciting purchase (and we’re still enjoying it!), and such a fun moment that I definitely want to remember it. . .So into the scrapbook it goes!

I cut the title out with SCAL and my Cricut. The title was about 4 inches wide, so you can imagine how teeny tiny the counters in the letters were. Gluing done those insides of the ‘B’ were especially tough. I need to get some of those scrapbooking tweezers I’ve seen around.

Originally, the title was going to be pasted right on top of the mambi background paper, but it was hard to read, so I put a scrap of paper (from the same mambi stack) behind it. The title was cut out of the same green plaid paper that I used here.

Background paper by Me & My Big Ideas (mambi sheets, summer themed stack). Blue Chevron paper by Recollections.

Oh, and who was keeping me company while I worked on this page? Heidi Klum! I started watching those whole last season of Project Runway and it is amazing! Team Ven! Just kidding. Ven is the worst!
