Play 8.5×11 Layout with Sarah

Shake It Up Scrapbooking

Hello, SMS fans, it’s Sarah on the blog again today with a quick grid design 8.5×11 layout to share!  I wanted to get more of my Pink Paislee Fancy Free stash used up, so I grabbed what I had left and got going!  Here it is:


I started my making 2.5×2.5 squares with the Fancy Free patterned paper.  I also cropped my photos that size.  I made little pockets for sequins out of Large Glassine Bag and filled them with    some of the Happy Dance Sequin Mix and sewed them shut with my sewing machine.  I arranged them in a grid pattern, adhered them with my E-Z Runner Grand and started embellishing!


I added a little bit of embellishing to each square.  I layered a Chunky Cork Heart with a puffy heart sticker from Fancy Free.  I used some enamel dots and Kaisercraft gems to add a little bling!  I also gave my layout a good splatter of Heidi Shine in Black, Lime and Teal.


Here you can get a close up of the Glassine Bag pockets that I filled with some of the Happy Dance Sequin Mix.  I also used a few of the glitter hearts that came in the Fancy Free Thicker Word pack.


I added my title “Play” from the Fancy Free Thicker Word pack over a Paper Lace Doily and added “Lyla” with the old enamel Thickers from the Dear Lizzy Documentary collection.  I added typed journalling that I typed on my typewriter and a few of the puffy sticker stitches from the puffy sticker pack from Fancy Free, stamped the date and called it done!

I hope you enjoyed my latest installment of “Shake It Monday!  You can view the Youtube video here:

Look for more from me next month as I will be joining the Sparklers for another term!  Yay!

Hello! Katty here to share another layout with you all. For today’s layout I began with a cut file from my Silhouette. It’s a sun and a fun tittle. I backed both with patterned papers.


I am scrapping a photo of my older son Brian when he was about 9 months old. He always had this huge smile on his face. It was adorable. I used one on my favorite stencils, the Ameriacana Pixelated stencil with the Shimmerz Dazzlers in Dreamscicle between the sun “rays.”


I also added some of the yellow and orange sequins from the A day in the woods sequin mix. I kept the embellishing pretty simple. I backed my photo with a navy and yellow patterned paper and all of the ephemera pieces are from a Heidi Swapp ephemera pack.


I also scattered a few of the cork Chunky Stars. This layout ended up being simple but I love how it turned out.

Silly Kisses with Laura

Scrapbook Sessions

Hi there, Laura here!  Squeezing in another post for today – be sure to check out the blog hop posted this morning as there are some fabulous prizes to be won and lots of inspiration to be gained!

I had a layout that got to the stage where it was good but not quite there…  The collection is from Fancy Pants and was in my latest like for ever kit.  The cut file is from my friend Kerry.  I sat looking at it… of course – add some sequins!

Hello Sunshine | by Anna Sigga

It is so much fun taking pictures of animals cause you never really know if they are willing to play along or not.


This beautiful cat is my mother’s cat and she is quite the lil queen – when I looked at the picture I knew I had to scrapbook it.


I used the beautiful A Day in the Woods sequins mix along with my beloved White Lace paper doily.


Thanks for stopping by and I hope your Friday is a good one!

Seriously layout by Lea

Hello girls, Lea ‘s here and waiting for the big event on Saturday, here I am for the weekly usual appointment. Today I made a mixedmedia layout …It is known my last passion for GELLI printing plate:I printed several levels, with different colors: the paper I used is not smooth but quite rough and this gives the press a grungy and pictorial effect that I really liked to use it as the basis of my project. After I adding some different stamping with Black Archival ink, some splashes of color and two sequin mix (Sunny smile and A Day in the woods),all this give greater relief to the focal point of my page, where build the whole composition.

I used some patterned paper and a paper doily, that I split in half, as the basis for the  photo, I added thickness cardboard and on two glassine bags  for a transparent effect that befits the very background style: at the end, I added the photo.

Then  I shot several times of the  white twine around this layering to highlight the photo  and  as last steps I added the title.

Grow: Process Video with Khristina

Hi Everybody! I am SO very excited to be back this week at SpiegelMom Scraps with my third Guest Designer project for the month of July. I am loving all of these sequins and fun, unique products to play with this month!  Today, I am going to share a layout and process video using a few different collections of sequins.

I love the look of sequins, especially when they are combined with hand stitching. In this layout, I kept the majority of the layout simple and use the sequins as my pop of interest and color. They work perfectly with the Illustrated Faith She Blooms collection!


Make sure to check out the process video as well as it gives more of a step-by-step guide to what I did to create this look. Also, make sure to come back on Saturday for all of the festivities associated with the Blog Hop. There are some great prizes, fun surprises, and lots of new inspiration planned for that day!


From the SpiegelMom Scraps Store, I worked with several different sequin packages: Amy’s Sprinkles, Hot Right Now, A Mermaid’s Tale, Raspberry Daisy Dream, and Passion Flower. I love how well all of the collections mix and match together! I will be back next week with another fun project!  Happy Crafting!!
