Adventure, Shimelle Scraplift!

Hey y’all, Ali here! Super excited to scraplift another lovely scrapper this week. You may have noticed, the Sparklers are highlighting Shimelle! I love all of her layouts, so it was really hard to choose what to scraplift. I eventually decided on this fun layout!

 I was immediately drawn to the enamel dots down the center, and I knew replacing those with sequins would be awesome! I decided on my photos, my son at Mount Rushmore (and all of his excitement!). But my photos were vertical and Shimelle’s layout uses horizontal photos. So I flipped it! And I love the way it turned out.

 

Obviously, scraplifting Shimelle, I felt drawn to all of the Shimelle goodies. Go Now Go and True Stories were a perfect mix to tell the story of my son and his adventure to Mount Rushmore. I also added some washi tape and a few of the Cork Confetti Hearts.

**let us take a moment to discuss cork…if you haven’t already heard, cork and felt are on their way out of the shop. It is unfortunate, because who doesn’t love the cork and felt embellishments? But sadly, they must retire. Stock up now, before it’s too late!!!!**

Finishing the layout off with some Gone With The Wind sequins, and voila! Finished! One thing I absolutely adore about Shimelle’s layouts are how quick and simple they are, while paying attention to all of those important details. Also, by using patterned paper as a background, they always look so detailed and intricate!

Since this scraplift, I have been more inclined to reach for the patterned paper instead of my white cardstock, and I just love that a simple scraplift can change a point of view or style! So if you haven’t already, I highly recommend picking your favorite Shimelle layout and scraplifting (don’t forget the sequins!).

 

Shimelle Scaplifting!!!

Hello everyone!! This week we are scraplifting Shimelle and I’m here to share with you what layout of hers I chose to use and my scraplift of it.

Here’s the layout I created! 


I pulled out a past scrapbook kit from The Fairytale club and decided to use it for this scraplift, I thought it went well with my photos that I had decided to use. Now thats the 1st thing I changed about this layout, I used 2 photos instead of one and I know Shimelle likes to scrap her photos in color, but I dont always like doing that. So I decided to use snapchat photos of me and my girls, using a filter that added cute little pink flowers to our heads.


I started with the background, I chose one of the papers that was just black and white and pulled out my watercolors and went to painting the flowers. I cut that down and added it to the bottom of the layout where she had the bold chevron paper. And instead of another patterned paper I pulled out some of the pretty purple washi tape I had got from the Spieglemomscraps shop and did three different lines of it to make the seperation and a bigger pop of color.

I added some layers behind my photos, I didnt add as many layers as Shimelle, I added some of mine in with different embellishments and fussy cut elements.​​​


I moved to the lower right corner of the layout to start the cluster there and decided to use that cute Hi tag instead of journaling. There wasnt much to journal about here really, thats why I chose to use the tag. We have tons of snapchat pics and there just us messing around and having fun. I added in the heart, a documented sticker and a few other pieces and them moved back to the title.

 I knew I wanted my title to be a bit longer like Shimelles is, so I pulled out one of my scripty font alphas and a large cork ampersands from the shop and added my title.

To finish everything off I pulled out my beautiful sequin packs, Ferris Wheel, Steal My Heart and Sparkle Power. I feel like these add everything the layout needs! The teals and blues from Ferris wheel are just beautiful along with the textures on them! And the little gold stars from Steal my heart are a nice pop of gold along with the pretty pink in white! All of them are so gorgeous!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Scrappy Friday – Shimelle Scraplift

Hello Creatives!

This Scrappy Friday is about scraplifting a scrapper, who, once again is amonst my favorites : Shimelle.

Here is the page I’ve chosen:

What I particularly liked about it was the large photo and the different embellishments from top to bottom.

I first tried to use the same kind of paper for my background, and of course decided to scrap a large photo as well.

Then, I splattered different kinds of embellishments from top to bottom, amongst them the cork stars and felt clouds from Spiegelmom Scraps shop.

Here are some sneaks:

What about you? Have you ever scrapped a large picture? Do you like to do so?

See you next week for another Scrappy Friday!

Scrapbooking with Karla – Scraplifting Shimelle!

Hi, Karla here today! This week we’re scraplifting Shimelle Laine! She is one of my favourite scrapbookers, who has had such an amazing influence in the world of scrapbooking. From Two Peas to Glitter Girl, she’s helped break down the ‘rules’ of scrapbooking and help us understand why things work and how to do them. Here’s a look at Shimelle’s layout that I chose to scraplift-

Layout by Shimelle Laine

I didn’t have the new Glitter Girl collection that Shimelle used, but I did have two other of her collections – True Stories and Starshine, so I decided to use the papers and stickers from those to create my layout along with the Star Spangled, Honor Guard and Hey Kiddo sequin mixes.

I love the paper layers, and for anyone who struggles to create layers to frame a photo this is a good way to get started on how to do it – by following someone else’s layout.

I love the blue star sequins in the Honor Guard sequin mix! Even though there are pinks in the photo and some on the papers, I chose to focus on the primary colours. I even used the round camera lenses as a place to add some sequin details for a more subtle, but fun effect.

I love adding different textures together, such as the Tim Holtz sentiment sticker, the star chipboard sticker, the banner cut paper sentiment and the clear sticker popped up on foam dots together with the different sizes and colours of sequins!  They all look cohesive, but your eye has lots of different things to look at.

Make It Yours Monday~Celebrate Love

Happy Monday Scrappy friends and thanks so much for joining me for another Make It Yours Monday!! This week, we are being inspired by the awesome and amazingly talented Katty Miranda! I had a hard time choosing a layout to be inspired by, because I love her style!! In the end, I chose this beautiful and clean layout to highlight my photo with!

I just love how all the elements on the page bring your eye towards the most important part of the whole layout, the photo!

To begin, I trimmed down a piece of American Crafts white cardstock 1/4″ on each side. I splattered some Glorious Day Vibes and Night Moves Coloringz Shimmerz on the blank page before I did anything else! (I prefer to start with my splatters so I dont ruin a finished layout with some missed placed splatters!!!) After they were dry, I got out my 6×6 stencil, turned it sideways and used the corners to create the triangular sections of the page using the Gold Mine Texturez paste.

While the texture paste was drying, I mounted my photo on some black cardstock, tucked a 4″ doily I cut in half behind each side and then used a piece of vellum to finish the matting.

After everything was dry, I adhered the photo and title to the center of the layout. Next, the Black Tie Event sequin mix took center stage!! I sprinkled the beautiful glossy black and iridescent white sequins all over the page to give some more texture, sparkle and interest. I Love this mix, it’s SO versatile!! 

Thanks so much for coming back and joining me this week! I hope you enjoyed todays project and will check out the shop for some of these amazing products!! AND, when you do, dont forget

 

Loved Beyond Measure, Scraplifting Katty Miranda

Hey scrappers, Ali here! This week we are scraplifting Katty Miranda! Her work is so beautiful, it was difficult to pick! I went with this gorgeous masterpiece, I loved the shape and movement, and I knew it would really challenge me!

For my take, I wanted to emulate the same movement, but instead of butterflies I wanted to create a space/galaxy motif with stars and moons. I started with some white paint and dabbed it on with textured ink dauber. After the paint dried I added a quick splatter of gold mist. Then I used a star stencil and Paste Eez (Tree Hugger) to add more dimension to my galaxy. I had a bit of Pink Paislee’s Moonstruck collection left, and I knew this would be perfect for layering under my photo!

The final touch (as usual) were the sequins! I started with the Deck the Halls mix (and no, this is NOT a Christmas layout!) because I wanted to include those super fun gold stars! The green in the mix also matched really well with the Paste Eez stars. At first I also had included the red sequins, but they didn’t flow as well. Instead I decided to add some of the pink from You are My Sunshine mix, since some of the details I was using from Moonstruck included pink. I think sequins are a really great way to pull colors from your embellishments and patterned papers so the layout feels more cohesive! While that may seem like plenty of sequins (there is really no such thing!), I still felt it needed more…so in came the Gold Stardust Sequins!

With the white “galaxy” I really wanted to pull more white from the background. I decided to layer it at an angle, and add stitching to the top and bottom (like the original)! I really love how it turned out, and I am so thankful to Katty for the inspiration!

If you are a firm believer (like I am) that you can never have enough sequins, be sure to check out the shop and save some money on that bling!

 

Scrappy Saturday-Being Weird

Good morning ladies!!

I hope your enjoying your weekend so far!! This is our last weekend before the kiddos go back to school and oh man we have a lot going on! We have our oldest sons 1st football game of the season, our youngest is turning one!!! Omg! And making sure everything is together for school Monday. And in there some where I want to try and find some more time to scrap!! lol

But on to the actually layout I came to share with you this morning. Lol This week over on the Spiegelmomscraps blog were scraplifting the fantastic Katty Miranda!

Here is the layout I chose to scraplift of hers:

To start my layout I pulled out a few of my favorite shimmerz and played with the packaging technique on the background. Mine is no where near as bright as Katty’s but I loved the way the colors blended together and went with the Create Paper  Confetti collection that I had decided to use. I know I could have made them stand out more but I decided to not use gesso on the background and keep it a but lighter.

I wanted to scrap this goofy picture of me and my hubby playing with one of the Snapchat filters. I have a lot of these kind of pictures! Me and my kiddos play with it all the time too! lol I layered a few papers behind my picture and then moved on to embellishing.

I wanted to add a lot of embellishments like Katty had, but I didn’t want to use so many flowers since this was just a goofy pic of me and my hubby. I mean dont get me wrong I could have easily used flowers, but I wanted to use some of the pointed circles that were in the collection already. But I did add a few flowers in there too!

After adding the paper embellishments in there and getting them where I wanted them, I stuck them down and started playing with some of the chipboard pieces and other 3D embellishments. And pulled out my cute little Shooting cork stars and layered them in where I wanted them.

I always save the best for last! I pulled out one of my favorite sequin packs right now, Fairy Garden. I love playing with my sequins! lol I added those beautiful little shiny pops of color here and there on my layout and was done.

I loved scraplifting Katty this week, I had fun with it! And I hope your liked my take on Katty’s layout!!
