Tuesday’s Talent

Hello, friends!  Miranda Webber here, and I’m really excited for this layout!  This is week two and let me tell you, I learned a few things with this layout! As the theme this month is stamps, I challenged myself on using just sequence and stamps for embellishments. Here is a sneak peak of my layout.  I used Sparkle Ever After and In the New Year sequence mixes.

Look at that Wine Glass!  I have learned that you need to double your foam if you really want the shake on it!  I also learned about how I did my stars but you gotta go check the process video that is link down below!

Scrappy Friday – Wish List

Hello Creatives!

Here I am with a page I made before going to visit my family for Xmas. I decided to documented this special period of the year in my Traveller Notebook.

What I particularly like about this period of the year is all the preparation, and the time looking forward to meet and spend time with my loved ones…

I’ve used several Xmas related stamps and decorations along with the Hustle Bustle sequins, perfect to match them all.

Hope you all enjoyed these moments as much as I did! I’m really looking forward to scrap along with you in the coming year!

Love from France

Cards With Karla – Happy New Year Shaker!

@jodyspiegelhoff @smssseqins @shimmerz @cricut #smssequins #sequins #newyear #2018 #greetingcard #happynewyear #mixedmedia #shimmerzpaints #cricut #diecut #bling #shakercard #hello

Hi friends! Karla here today with a fun sparkly New Year card to kick off 2018! I recently picked up some fun Shimmerz products from the SMS Shop – Shimmerz Gold Glimmer Blingz and Hi Ho Blingz, which are liquid metallic paints and Puttin’ On The Glitz Paste-eez, a sparkly texture paste. I love using gold and silver together on New Years cards, and these were fun to work with! I also grabbed three different sequin mixes – In The New  Year,  Rollin Rustic and Blue Moon to use in the shaker portion and on the front and inside areas of my card.

@jodyspiegelhoff @smssseqins @shimmerz @cricut #smssequins #sequins #newyear #2018 #greetingcard #happynewyear #mixedmedia #shimmerzpaints #cricut #diecut #bling #shakercard #hello

It’s the last week of our ‘tools’ theme, so I thought I’d run you through the steps I used to create this card using some crafty tools I have. I started off by using a cutfile that the awesome Laura Rumble created, which I uploaded to Cricut Design Space. Then, I cut it out using the negative cut as the shaker portion and used a gold pen and the write tool to write my message for the inside of the card (shown below).

I used some plastic packaging, some Tattered Angels Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist and the gold and silver Blingz to smoosh the card background with the metallic watercolours. I also used the gold to paint over the Hello diecut for a little extra sparkle.

The glittery Paste-eez was neat to use with a Heidi Swapp star stencil to add a little more subtle texture and glitz to the right of the card front.

I grabbed the three sequin mixes I was using – In The New  Year,  Rollin Rustic and Blue Moon, and put a few from each package onto the area of the card that would be the shaker. After adding a piece of acetate behind the numbers and some double sided foam tape around the edges, I carefully pressed it on the card.

I love the look of the Shimmerz Gold Glimmer Blingz painted onto the hello diecut cut from black cardstock, and this pretty star from the ‘In The New Year’ mix looks great on the card front!

Here’s a look at the inside where I used the Cricut pen tool to write my sentiment using a gold pen. I outlined parts of the lettering with a black pen after to highlight the words and then added some more gorgeous sequins!

Snowflakes & Sequins with Guest Designer Missy Whidden

Hello again, friends!  Missy Whidden here with my final layout as the December Guest Designer.  I’ve had so much fun this month sharing my wintry pages with you!  It has been a fun challenge to  create these projects, and I hope you’ve enjoyed them.  For my final layout, I used sequins from the Peachy Keeny, On Pointe, Lisa’s Starry Night and Painted Gardens packs.  I began with a large star snowflake cut file.  I did a bit of mixed media work on the background using oil pastels, gelatos and some Shimmerz sprays.  I filled in all the snowflake designs with sequins!  It was a lot of fun, and the end result is fantastic 🙂

Be sure to check out my process video here to see the full layout and how I put it all together.

Thank you again to everyone here at SpiegelMom Scraps for having me!  Happy New Year, everyone!

Snow Angel with Ali

Merry Christmas Eve! I am going to keep this brief, because I know everyone is probably very busy this time of year! But I wanted to share this layout and something super special that happened a couple weeks ago here in Texas! We got snow. Not just hard rain. Not sleet. Not wet stuff that turned to ice on the ground. Real.Life.Snow. My kids were so excited, we all had such a fun time playing in the snow. My son even made his very first snow angel!

Last week we scraplifted Missy Whidden, but this week I was just inspired by her style to get messy and stitchy…so that is what I did!

I used the awesome free snowflake cut files, and even used them as frames for my photos. I wanted to keep this layout mostly white, like the snow! But of course I had to add those sparkles of sequins! The Nice List mix went perfectly with my mixed media, and the cold vibes from this layout!

I hope you all have a happy holiday, we won’t be seeing more snow here in Texas, but if you have snow, be sure to get out there and throw a snowball for me!

Scrappy Saturday- I love this girl

Hello everyone!!

How excited are you that Christmas is only a few days away!!! My kiddos are so excited! lol Anyways…. This week I’m scraplifting the awesome Missy Whidden!

This is the layout of Missys that I decided to scraplift. I wanted to go a different way since I’ve been on a roll of scrapping circles lol. So I chose a grid. I will say that I did a lose scraplift of this layout lol.

I loved the Birthdays&Balloons sequin mix and Crate papers Cute Girl collection went great with it! I had already picked out my pictures of my niece, shes so pretty, but I swipped her snapchat pics to scrap lol.

I started my layout by pulling out some of my shimmerz that matched the colors in the sequins and in the paper collection and using the packaging technique  around my layout like Missy had.  Once I had the colors where I wanted them and let them dry, I added the machine stitching like she had.

I kept my grid loser then Missy did, but I knew I wanted it to cover more of the page, I was trying not to have so much white space. But after knowing where I wanted my pictures, I started my paper layering in the other two spaces and then behind my photos too.

I went in as I was adding the layers and added some little thread nests for some more texture and because Missy had added them.

After adding little puffy stickers here and there and the thread nests, I moved on to adding all the pretty shinies! Birthdays & Balloons sequin mix has so many colors and the shine on some of them are just different. I’m guessing its because some of them are see threw and some aren’t, but I love the different shines they give!

Thanks so much for checking out this layout, and make sure to check out all the great layouts that all the other Sparklers made too and make sure to check out what Missy has made too!

Scrappy Friday – Enjoy Winter!

Hello creatives!

As you probably know, this week, we’re scraplifting the talented Missy Whidden. And this is the page I’ve chosen :

What I particularly liked was the waterfall of stars….

And because Xmas is approaching, I’ve decided to use snowflakes instead…. Here is my page:

I fussy cut some snowflakes from a plastic sheet, and backed them with some Xmas inspired papers.

Then, I superimposed some chipboards and mixed them with the Snowflakes free cut files available on the blog. The final touch was to add sequins in their center.

This really add volume to the page, and to accentuate the effect, I also stuck some embellishments on 3D foam.

Then I used some Oh what fun! sequins and some Xmas stamps to match my picture colours and theme, and add the final touch to my page!

I really wish you all a Merry Christmas, have a wonderful time with your family, and cherish the moments spend with your loved ones.

Scrapbooking with Karla – Scraplifting Missy Whidden

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @lawnfawn @americancrafts @canvascorpbrands @tatteredangels @simplestories #smssequins #sequins #scrapbooking #memorykeeping #simplestories #lawnfawn #christmas #canvascorpbrands #tatteredangels #glimmermist

Hi friends! Karla back today with a scraplift for you using the amazing Missy Whidden, our Guest Designer this month, as inspiration, along with three beautiful new sequin mixes – Cunning One, Birthdays & Balloons and Cotton Candy Land. I really loved the pinks, yellows and greens in her layout, and of course Missy rocks the watercolours, so I wanted to use those elements in my layout as well as layering paper behind my photo and using different stickers and fonts for a title. Here you can see Missy’s wonderful layout!

@missywhidden #missywhidden
Layout By Missy Whidden

Here’s a look at my layout using some photos from a December when my daughter was 3 and we went to the local zoo for a Zoolights display. I pulled out a Simple Stories collection that has nontradition colours, and of course was excited to find this cute penguin journaling card and sticker to go with the penguin lights in my photo! I started off with a white sheet of cardstock and used my Tattered Angels mists in pink, yellow, green and iridescent gold to create a watercolour effect on the background by using a piece of plastic packaging to spritz the mist on before smooshing it onto the paper. Then, I created some splattered effects by removing the cover and tapping the nozzle onto the desired areas.

I used some of the clear sequins in the Cunning One sequin mix to accent the light strand sticker that I placed on the journaling card. They add just a bit of shine to the lights!

I had a lot of fun diecutting some watercoloured patterned paper with the Lawn Fawn String Of Lights die and sponging the edges with Distress Inks. I really loved the look of the gold Missy added onto her layout and I pulled that in with the gold string diecuts, the loooped gold thread and the Thickers letters.

I feel like titles are not my strong point, so I was really happy to mix and match my letter and word stickers along with some stamps and chipboard to create a fun title. The stamps from the Home For The Holidays collection from Wild Whisper worked beautifully!

NEW SEQUINS RELEASES and Inspired By Missy!

Hello all! Jody here with two awesome things to share with you!!  First off, today I’m releasing 10, yes TEN, more new sequin mixes just time for Christmas and New Years scrapping!  I hope you love them as much as I do.  I was inspired by so many things this time, including some new scrapbook collections, New Years and the Sparklers!

and this teal beauty too!

The second thing I’m sharing today is my Missy-inspired layout!  I started with American Crafts card stock and the beautiful new Shimmerz Paint Blue Grass.  That color is absolutely stunning & is my new favorite.  After prepping my background with gesso, I used the packaging technique, my paint brush and some extra water to get the look I wanted.  I added some splatters of Pink Caviar Shimmerz also!  SO PRETTY!!  I also used one of the new SMS cut files which you can find HERE.  It was designed by Sheryl.

After playing around with the placement and mixed media background, I decided to add a bunch of sequins in the middle of the page but was looking for a way to contain them.  I found some Canvas Corp Tissue Stock paper (Hobby Lobby) and used that to create a large pocket.  This isn’t really a shaker pocket, as I have most of the sequins adhered down with Aleene’s Clear Tacky Glue.  I just came across this stuff at Hobby Lobby and love it!  I used the Wild & Free sequins along with the light wood grain sequins from the new Chocolate Cookies mix!

I added some of beautiful flair badges from The Crafty Pocket.   Other products used were Bella Bvld stickers, Heidi Swapp puffy stickers, thread from Walmart, May Arts Chevron twill, watered down Tar-Tar Acri Tonez from Shimmerz Paints and wood veneer from my stash.

I hope you LOVE all the sequins and enjoyed my Missy Whidden inspired layout!  As a huge thank you for following SMS and being such fabulous customers, please enjoy 25% off your entire new order with code MERRY25.  This new code is valid today through December 26th, 2017.

You can still grab some Black Friday Dollar Deals and some 20-Pack Black Friday Sequins while they last!  There are only 3 packages left in stock!!

Thank you for spending your time with us at SpiegelMom Scraps!

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Cut Files & Sequins | Guest Designer Missy Whidden

Hello again, friends!  Missy Whidden here again as this month’s Guest Designer 🙂  I have another layout to share today, and I did something a bit different on this Winter-themed page.  I used sequins to back a cut file, and I love how it turned out!   I used sequins from the Aquarius, On Pointe, Water Lilies, and Peachy Keeny sequins packs.  I did some watercoloring and mixed media work on the layout as well.

You can check out my process video to see the full layout and how I created it!  I hope you’re inspired in some way 🙂

Make It Yours Monday~ This is The One!

Happy Holidays Everyone! This week is scraplift week of our Guest Designer for the month, and, this month, it’s the AMAZING Missy Whidden!!! Her layouts are always fabulous and the one I chose to take on is no exception! 

I loved all the wonderful textures and layers! To begin my version, I took a piece of white cardstock and 2 different stencils. Using the Shimmerz Dazzlers in Red-iculous, I created the base of my page. After the red Dazzlerz were dry, I brought in a Tim Holtz tree stencil and a green Dazzlerz to add some tress over top of the red textured background. 

While the texture pastes were drying, I began working with my photo. I backed the picture first with a bold red pattern paper and then created a layered back ground of various pattern papers from 6×6 paper pads I had in my Christmas stash. When I had all the layers they way I liked them, I adhered them together and backed the whole piece with some vellum for a soft look. Behind the photo mat piece, I created a fishtail banner from kraft cardstock and tucked it behind the paper cluster. By now, the paste was dry and I adhered the paper/photo cluster to the page with some foam tape. 

My title was added to the bottom right corner of my photo using a mix of tiny tile letters and gorgeous gold glitter Thicker. A star garland sticker under the photo tied that section together nicely! 

I loved the cluster Missy had in the top right, so I took a strip of pattern paper from my photos layers, cut a scallop boarder, and added it to the right corner of my page as well, over top of a mini red doily I had adhered first. A gold glitter bow and some sequins from the new Hustle Bustle mix finished that cluster. I loved the gold glitter of the bow and Thickers, and felt I needed it in one more place, so I replicated the top cluster on the bottom left corner of the page as well.  After that, I added splatters using Shimmerz Bed of Roses and Bamboo Leaf Spritz and more of the gorgeous Hustle Bustle sequins around the page. After trimming off 1/4″ from the sides of my page, I matted the entire layout on a piece of green cardstock and added a doodle boarder to finish my page.

This festive page makes me so happy and really has me eager for Christmas!! I hope you enjoyed my project today and has you inspired to pick up some producst from the shop to give a holiday page a go yourself!!

Scrappy Friday – A metal Christmas Tree

Hello creatives,

Here I am with a very simple and easy to make project :

Decorating a metal Christmas tree I’ve bought for a few dollars.

I’ve decided to  decorate it with stars, balls and tags and to use quite an unusual  mustard- glittering copper combo.

First I filled the balls with tiny objects or sequins.

Then, I decorated some tags with cork embellishments and stripes of papers.

It only took me a few minutes, but I like the shape of it, and its modern structure!
