There are incredibly talented paper crafters all around the globe and she’s no exception. You’ll get to meet and greet her on Tuesday morning, but here’s a sneak peek at her work!

Who doesn’t love water?! It makes up nearly our entire human body, which is just amazing to me. Plus, in our everyday crafty lives we paint with it, clean up our desks with it and have it on hand to drink. This time I decided to do some paper distressing!
Today I have a process video up on my YouTube channel showing you this easy & fun technique! Here are a few sneak peaks of that project!! Enjoy!
Thanks for spending your time with me! Please hop over to my YouTub channel HERE to check out how I do my distressing with water.

Hello again Spiegelmom Fans! It’s Juliana here from 17turtles and I’m back for my second guest post! Today, I’m sharing another scrapbook page that I created using a fun mix of embellishments from the Spiegelmom Scraps Etsy Shop.
The XOXO wood veneer from the Dear Lizzy Serendipity Wood Veneers jumped out at me as the perfect title for this photo of my sweet puppy Lincoln loving on one of his favorite toys. I fell in love with the Heart Felt Fetti Die Cuts as soon as I saw them and couldn’t resist adding them and some of the gorgeous Blue Lagoon Sequins to embellish my layout. I really love how this mix of embellishments adds some texture and interest to my layout without a lot of added bulk.
Thank you for stopping by today and I want to thank Jody so very much for having me as a guest here on Spiegelmom Scraps!

Hey everyone!! Jody here today with a quick card share. Cards….. I rarely make them ahead of time and usually wait until the last minute!! Who’s with me here?! Being able to create them quickly is huge for this girl! Today, I’m happy to share a very quick and easy card I created yesterday. I used a scrap of Heidi Swap September Skies paper, tags from my stash, Heart-Fetti Cork and a few of my favorite Studio Calico wood veneer & May Arts navy burlap string.
Do you have any tips for creating masculine cards? Please share 💕

Hi everyone!! Jody here today. Wasn’t Juliana’s post & layout lovely!! I just love her style & her fabulous cut files!! Thank you again Juliana for sharing your talents with us!!
Today I’m sharing a layout I started to create at the beginning of this summer but never finished until last week. I really struggled to finish this layout but didn’t know what it needed. I’m not sure if it’s because these papers aren’t my usual girly style or what, but it wasn’t working for me.
After I let this layout sit unfinished for a couple months, I went back to it with an idea. I wanted to add some white sketching of some kind, somewhere. I own 2 types of white pens/markers & love them both for different uses. First, I tried my Uniball Signo White Pen to draw around my title to make it stand out more. This worked ok but didn’t really have the affect I was going for. Second, I reached for my only Distress Marker in Picket Fence (white). Yes, I only have ONE!! I don’t use markers much and this is the only one I really felt drawn to. I think you’ll see why below! This marker is amazing! You can’t write or sketch on dark paper or cardstock & after a few seconds when the ink dries it turns white!! I love it!! You can fill in shapes, sketch, journal (although a bit trickier) and more!! Check out these close ups and the visual impact the white Distress Marker has on the overall layout! It’s so cool. I hope you enjoyed this non-girly layout & my Distress Marker tip! The products I used to create this layout are below:
Studio Calico papers
Tim Holtz Distress Marker, Picket Fence
Pink Fresh Studio wood & enamel chevrons
Freckles Fawn “This” paper clip
Thanks so much for spending your time with me today!

I’m super excited to have Juliana Michaels as Tuesday’s Talent here at SpiegelMom Scraps! She is one busy lady this month, and we are very lucky to have her here twice! I’ve been a fan of Juliana since we ‘met’ via social media last year through this amazing hobby. (Seriously, where would we be without social media these days!!) Her digital cutting files are fabulous and have helped push me outside of my creative comfort zone. Last year I purchased a Silhouette Portrait die cutting machine and really enjoy adding this element into my scrapbooking. If you haven’t ‘met’ Juliana before you can find her blog, Instagram and Facebook all linked up for you right here. Juliana is also teaching for Big Picture Classes this time around, which is fabulous!! Be sure to follow her on social media and subscribe to her newsletter! Please give Juliana a warm welcome and enjoy her first post as Tuesday’s Talent!
