Oh Happy Day by Evi

Hello scrapbook friends! Welcome to the SpiegelMom Scraps blog for todays dose of inspiration.  I am working with the Strawberry Bubblegum sequins and Rockin Pink Ombre.  I am scrapping a 5×7 photo of Miguel and I taking a selfie.

I started off with a Heidi Swapp Sun Burst stencil and used my Dylusion Paint in Lemon Zest with a Ranger blending tool.  I then used Tree Hugger Shimmerz Past-eez through a stencil from Prima.  I then wanted to add pink so i mixed pink paint and modeling paste.

Since I started out with all the color in the background, I want to utilize embellishments from my stash, so I thumbed through an older Heidi Swapp collection, Favorite things.  I loved the acetate piece that said ‘Oh Happy Day,’ I made that be my title.

For added detail, I matched my sequins to the color of the modeling paste.  So Strawberry bubblegum went with the mint green areas and Rockin Pink Ombre in the pink areas.  I used Scotch quick dry glue to adhere them.

Hello hello everyone!  The layout I am bringing you today is of my two grandchildren at the train museum, which they totally enjoyed.  Spending time with these two is a lot of fun, don’t get me wrong there is some discipline involved, well not much.  They are pretty good with their Nana and I truly adore being with them and they visit I just hate to say goodbye.

With that said today is my last post with the Spiegelmom Design Team.  I had so much fun with Jody and the gals on the team and I so want to do it again in the near future.  All of the products that are in the shop are amazing and if you have not ordered yet, I don’t know what your waiting for… you are missing out on the best sequin mixes, texture paste, cork die cuts, felt die cuts, and many other goodies.  I enjoyed using all of them on my layouts and with this layout, I used a lot of the goodies from the shop on it as well.  So let’s get started!

I used some the Dazzlerz, in “Coral Me Crazy” texture paste to make the small textured circles. The sequins I used are called Passion Flower, which I spread across the top of my layout and I also used a doily from the shop. Love this!

Here is a close up of the texture paste in Coral Me Crazy and the stencil I used is from Hero Arts.

The sequins are just fabulous!  Love this mixture of the Passion Flower mixture. The paper circles are punched out of some paper from my stash.

The wood veneer is from a Studio Calico kit from a while ago.

Here is a close up of the sequins again.  The tissue circles are from an older Felicity Jane kit.

I thought I would do some hidden journaling, which I used a glassine bag as one of the layers so I can slide the journal card right under the photo by a tap that I stapled onto a 3×4 journal card.  This is something you can do with your layout if you have a lot of embellishments covering it.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I also want to thank all of you who have left such wonderful comments each time I posted a layout.  This has been one of the best teams I have ever been on and I am going to miss it.  Take care all of you and don’t forget to support Spiegelmom Scraps by stopping by the shop and placing your oder today.  You can use Felicia15 till the end of the month for 15% off your order.  Bye bye everyone!

Shaker Title Page

Good morning!

If you’re reading this then you’ve made it to Wednesday – halfway through the week following a holiday weekend, which is always a struggle for me.

I’ve been having fun lately experimenting with different shaker pockets. I love the layering capabilities! Today I’m sharing a shaker pocket title page made with my trusty fuse tool. Projects like this are much easier if you have a heat proof mat with measurements – so you can get your fusing centered.

I love adding different sized page protectors in Project Life to make it a little more eclectic. I began by trimming my page protector to a 6×12 size. Working first on the rectangular inside pocket holding the “XOXO” I fused 3 sides, added the thicker, and fused the top. The fact that the title I chose was adhesive helped hold it in place. But if you’re going for a more whimsical look you could just add any cut file (or any ephemera for that matter!) I then added the sequins to the page protector. I chose to use Strawberry Bubblegum – a perfect mix for spring! I think lighter sequins look best when layered over a layout – you could also try these or these. Lastly, I used my mini stapler to attach a white heart feltie and my shaker page was complete! SO easy.

I wanted to keep the layout underneath fairly simple so both would be highlighted and not too busy. I used papers from Felicity Jane Studio and coordinating ephemera. I used a few embellishments from my stash including a white lace doily  and cork heart from the shop.

Notice that little bit of shine underneath my photo? You can brush on some Shimmerz  Paste-eez like this one for a little bit of bling.

I love putting my finished spreads in my album to admire how they turned out! I hope you’re inspired to do a little experimenting with shaker pockets


Girls Weekend 8.5×11 Layout with Sarah

Hello SMS fans! It’s Sarah on the blog today with a super fun 8.5×11 layout documenting a girls weekend that I went on.  I grabbed some of my One Canoe Two Hazelwood collection and a bunch of goodies from the SMS shop and got started!  Here is my layout for today:

I started with a 12×12 piece of American Crafts Textured White Card Stock and cut it down to 8.5×11.  I cut a 5×8.5 piece of teal patterned paper from the collection and a 4×8.5 piece of the pink patterned paper.  I tucked the gingham branding strip under the teal section.  I also tucked part of a Chantilly Lace 8″ Doily under the gingham strip.

I filled a Small Glassine Bag with some of the Strawberry Bubblegum Sequin Mix and sewed it shut with my sewing machine.  I used my EZ Runner Grand to adhere it to the back 4×4 photo and popped it up on adhesive dots.

I added ephemera chipboard pieces from Hazelwood and a button from Oasis.  I also grabbed a gold leaf from the Lake Me Away Thicker pack and a gold brad from Happy Place.  I found an old checkered tag from the Gather collection and added it behind my photo with a bit of gold bakers twine from The Twinery.

I also used a few puffy stickers from Hazelwood.  I used the new Oasis Thickers in kraft with gold dots for my title and I stuck the “Weekend” word on from the Take Me Away Thickers.

I used my Maggie Holmes roller phrase stamper to add the sentiment in black Staz On.  I also gave the layout a good splat of Heidi Shine in Gold.  I embellished with enamel dots and Kaistercraft gems.

I hope you have enjoyed my layout for today!  Look for more from me the last Sunday of the month for my last installment of “Shake It Sunday!”

Items I used from the SMS shop:

Chantilly Lace 8" White Paper Doily

Make It Yours Monday~Splash!

Hello my scrappy friends!! I hope you all had a WONDERFUL Easter with tons of fun, family, blessings and yummy food!! I know the day after a holiday (esp. a Monday!!) can be tough so I hope my layout today will make your Monday just a little bit better!

I just enjoyed the weather so much yesterday, that I decided to pull out some sunny, warm photos from last summer! I was completely inspired by my Sparklers DT sister, Laura Rumble. I LOVE her simplistic but beautiful style and this layout of hers was just stunning…

So, for my layout today, I took the Gorgeous strip of sequins as my main focus. I began with a piece of American Crafts White Cardstock and backed it with a paris blue cardstock. It was the perfect blue to compliment the pool photo. Then I started my background for my photo. I misted Jeni B Bleu Vibez straight onto the cardstock and let the mist spread out. I added some splatters with Mama Sings The Blues coloringz and had the perfect pool splash!!!For my photo, I started matting it with a piece of blue glitter cardstock, for some more watery shimmer. A second mat was added in pink, to pull in the color of her bathing suit. I added one more final mat, this time using a glassine bag from the shop. I used the glassine bag as a place to tuck my hidden journaling, on a shipping tag, also from the shop. I tied on a piece of May Arts Bakers twine to finish off the tag, tucked it into the bag and adhered the completed photo cluster to the top 1/3 of my layout, among the misty splatters.

Then came the fun sequin part!! Just under my photo, I laid down a thick line of wet adhesive (I prefer Scotch Quick Dry) and dumped all of my Pandora’s Ombre sequin mix into the wet glue!! I tilted the paper and collected the loose sequins and repeated until all the glue was covered with sequins. I added my chipboard title “Splash” from the old Poolside collection and then, sprinkled some more sequins around the title and page.

This was a really fun and quick layout that that really makes a bit impact. I hope you will give a simplistic layout a shot this week and make one of your favorite products SHINE!!

Thanks for joining me for another Make It Yours Monday and dont forget, if you use code LISA15 on all your shop purchases, you will recieve 15% off.  Have a scrappy day!

A Scraplift and A Farewell

Hello my fellow scrapbookers! Todays post is bitter sweet for me. I had so much fun creating this layout, but it is the last layout I will be making as a design team member for Jody’s amazing company.

I have absolutely LOVED working with the products in the SpiegelMom Scraps shop. Jody is amazing at making the perfect combination of sequins in her mixes. Before I became a member of the team I was an enamel dot lover and didn’t really understand what you could do with sequins. That’s kind of silly, right?!! They’re the same shape and size as enamel dots, why can’t you use sequins like them?! Well, YOU CAN! Hah! I quickly fell in love with sequins and it has become an item that I have to have on every layout or it doesn’t feel done. One of the things that I have been drawn to lately is “random piles” of sequins. I used to only use a few enamel dots in each cluster, but for some reason with sequins I have to have at least 5, if not a lot more, for the cluster to feel complete.

Anyway, I’m rambling, mostly because I am sad not to be continuing on, but I have realized in my life that I just need some time to scrapbook just for me and no one else. Without further ado, here’s my layout:

I just love it!! The photos and all the colors are just so bright and fun. I started this layout using the American Crafts White Textured Cardstock.

This is the layout I am scraplifting. It’s actually an art journal page by Irit Landgraf:

Isn’t it gorngeous?!! You can watch her process video here.

I think I’ve said this before, but I just LOVE these Corky Cumulous clouds from the shop!! They’re so adorable!

I used the Mint Chocolate Chip and Gun Metal Grey sequin mix in each of the clusters and a silver doily as well.

Like I was saying earlier, I really love the look of piling my sequins. Isn’t it just so pretty?!! I will do my journaling on this Large shipping tag to the left of the bottom photos.

You can watch my process video below:

Thanks so much for stopping by!! If you make a purchase in the store you can use my code, Megan15, through the month of April. I hope you have enjoyed my layouts throughout this last 9 months!



Hi Folks!  Laura here again with a photoless layout.  My pet budgie (parakeet) is called Herbert and I wanted to document the definitions of his name as they are rather apt… well one much more than the other!

I looked up the definition and origin of the name and the word and printed them out.  The other focus is the feathers flair button which is where I got my colour scheme from.  I wanted to keep the layout fairly clean and simple with the added colour coming from splatters and sequins only – no patterned paper at all.

I gathered some sequins; 2 Cool 4 U,  What’s Up Buttercup, Green Acres, Salt of the Earth and strung them onto some thread.  The flair is from Cuts2Luv and Evalicious.

I bumped my definitions on foam – I love the little shadow it throws around the edge.

If you want to replicate grab some Shimmerz inks here, and pulled out your SpiegelMom Scraps sequin stash and have fun!
