Quick and Simple Layout Share

Hey there! Jody here today with a quick layout to share. I started with the lovely Crate Paper Craft Market papers and layered with vellum, a cute mini paper bag and a couple other goodies.  This layout came together quickly with only a few embellishments added on top :) The photo is of our daughter, Sari, in her favorite bonnet from Old World Wisconsin.  We’ve gone there twice over the summer and want to go back before the weather gets cold again.  We LOVE that place!  I took the photo at our land in September… by the way, the building process for our new home is underway!  We now have a driveway and will break ground within the next couple weeks!!! So excited!!

Ok, focus Jody LOL…. I added a Heidi Swapp Minc card “Be You Tiful” and framed it with a piece of Cocoa Vanilla ephemera frame. I also used up some Allison Kreft chipboard buttons & Pink Paislee white rubber arrows from the Artisan Collection. @spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @cratepaperinc @americancrafts @cocoavanillastudio @maggieholmes @heidiswapp @allisonkreft @websterspages, #spiegelmomscraps #jodyspiegelhoff #cratepaperinc #scrapbook #layout #ephemera #gold #heidiswapp #minc #cork #stickers

I think my favorite part of this layout is how fast is came together, about 20 minutes!!  It really does pay to scrapbook in short amounts of time.  It forces to me to not putz around with things so much and just get my memories documented.  Here are a few more close-ups!

October Tuesday’s Talent ~ Amy Lee is here!

Hello everyone!  I cannot believe October has finally arrived!  Here in Southeastern Wisconsin the weather is turning cooler and Fall is in the air, which I love!  I also absolutely adore my guest designer this month, Amy Lee aka The Craft Bunny!  We ‘met’ through Etsy and I’m so happy we did.  Amy’s YouTube channel is lovely and growing more and more every week.  Please give a warm SpiegelMom Scraps welcome to Amy this month!

Hi there! My name is Amy Lee. I am the October Guest Designer for SpiegelMomScrapShop. I have a YouTube channel called TheCraftBunny. This is actually my VERY FIRST time in a Guest Design Team and I am so EXCITED!

@spiegelmomscraps @thecraftbunny @jodyspiegelhoff, #thecraftbunny #sequins #spiegelmomscraps #stamps #ink #etsyshopToday, I am sharing an anime inspired card featuring some awesome sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps. I have always loved anime as a child. Their screen effects were extremely glamorous and very pretty. So in this project, I decided to channel my favorite anime memories into card making.

To start off, I stamped my Gorjuss Girl image in black, paper pierced her dress and then colored the rest with my color pencils. To make her even more realistic, I added a magic circle image from Google Images. I also made her a magic wand using a painted toothpick and some embellishments in my stash.@spiegelmomscraps @amylee @thecraftbunny, #DIY #cardmaking #Gorjussgirl #stamp #ink #fairy #sequins #sunnydays #mirrormirror #silversequins #flower #coloring

The card front background was created using pink, yellow and lavender acrylic paints. Then I adhered the focal point of my card using foam tape and hot glue. Then, I embellished the card using some mulberry paper flowers and sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps. To match the color scheme, I used sequins from Silver Sunrise Mix, Moonshine Delight, Gold Rush and Sunny Days. I love adding in elements from the same color family to add fullness to my project.@spiegelmomscraps @amylee @thecraftbunny, #DIY #cardmaking #Gorjussgirl #stamp #ink #fairy #sequins #sunnydays #mirrormirror #silversequins #flower #coloring For the inside of the card, I simply adhered some lace to prop up the card front. That’s it for this card! If you’d like to see more, please check out the process video on my Youtube channel. A full list of supplies is also available there. Thanks for stopping by and I will see you next week!

For my card, I kept it every simple. I challenged myself to use stamping, heat embossing and Shimmerz Creamezz watercolors. This was a huge challenge for me! You know me… I love lots of layers, burlap string, texture and foam adhesive! I tried not to stress about about my challenge and just went for it!     

  I stamped this super cute castle with Versamark Ink and heat embossed it using Ranger’s Liquid Platinum embossing power. I chose to paint most of the castle with My Clemintine Creameez watercolor. This is the perfect combo of peachy pink I’ve ever seen! I just love it! It also has just a hint of shimmer to it.

Farewell to Ka Slagowski, September’s Tuesday’s Talent

Today we are bidding farewell to Ka Slagoski, our Tuesday’s Talent this month. I have seriously enjoyed Ka’s posts and every little detail on her cards!  Thank you so much Ka.  I’m forever your fan!  I hope everyone enjoys, comments and shares Ka’s final guest designer post today.  

Hello everyone! It’s Ka here with my final post as SpiegelMom Scraps September Guest Designer! I’ve had so much fun designing with Jody’s awesome products! I hope you’ve enjoyed my creations and thank you so much for all the sweet comments and support! And a special thank you to Jody for inviting me to be to be part of SpiegelMom Scraps!

For today’s post, I made a birthday card with a matching birthday tag. I absolutely adore owls and think they are just some of the cutest critters. I decided to use the adorable owls images from the “Hoo Loves You” set from Whimsy Stamps to create today’s projects. @copicmarkers @WhimsyStamps @jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @mayartsribbon @studiocalico @americancrafts, #spiegelmomscraps #studiocalico #americancrafts #sequins #DIY #CardMaking #whimsyStamps #ink #stampI started the card by die-cutting a white stitched rectangle panel and masking the stitched edges with masking tape. I then, placed a Heidi Swapp Stencil over it and applied some mint ink all over the entire panel. I added some gray ink by lightly sponging around the edges.  To create the gray frame, I used the chisel end of a T4 Copic Marker to color in the masked stitches edges. This panel was adhered to a lavender card base. @copicmarkers @WhimsyStamps @jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @mayartsribbon @studiocalico @americancrafts, #spiegelmomscraps #studiocalico #americancrafts #sequins #DIY #CardMaking #whimsyStamps #ink #stampNext, I stamped the owls in gray ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I popped the owls up using foam dimensional adhesives and added an aqua chevron twill ribbon to ground them. I pulled out a Studio Calico Speech Bubble Wood Veneer and stamped “have a” and “birthday” to the speech bubble in black ink and then popped the speech bubble with foam dimensional adhesive. As a finishing touch, I scattered some sequins from the Sunny Day Sequins and Blue Lagoon Sequins Mix from SpeigelMom Etsy Shop. @copicmarkers @WhimsyStamps @jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @mayartsribbon @studiocalico @americancrafts, #spiegelmomscraps #studiocalico #americancrafts #sequins #DIY #CardMaking #whimsyStamps #ink #stampI thought it be fun to create a matching tag for the birthday card above. I did some stencil work on one of the SpiegelMom Scraps Medium Shipping Tag and matted it with a gray cardstock. I customized the “woo-hoo!” sentiment using Avery Elle Elle’s Alphas and stamped the sentiment from Newton’s Nook Designs Newton’s Birthday Bash set. @copicmarkers @WhimsyStamps @jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @mayartsribbon @studiocalico @americancrafts, #spiegelmomscraps #studiocalico #americancrafts #sequins #DIY #CardMaking #whimsyStamps #ink #stampThe owl and plum chevron twill ribbon were popped with foam dimensional adhesives. I finished the tag by adding the same mix of sequins as the card and tying yellow baker’s twine on top from SpiegelMom Scraps Etsy Shop.

@copicmarkers @WhimsyStamps @jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @mayartsribbon @studiocalico @americancrafts, #spiegelmomscraps #studiocalico #americancrafts #sequins #DIY #CardMaking #whimsyStamps #ink #stampI just love how this card and tag turned out!

Building layers and using scraps

Hello everyone! Jody here today with a fun layout and lots of layers. For this layout I used a sheet of paper and stickers from the Crate  Paper Craft Market collection, a large glassine bag and various scraps from recent layouts I still had on my desk. I added the glassine bag for a couple reasons: 

1). I love the added texture & different feel of the  glassine bag, light & airy

2). The translucent glassine bag will mute whatever I slide inside, which makes it perfect for using up scraps of paper that may not match perfectly

I layered my photo of my girls & I at the zoo with a couple other papers scraps from the Craft Market collection. I put the glassine bag behind my matted photo and slide a few smaller scraps inside for fun! I love that you can see the faint patterns inside without distracting too much from the other page elements.      I don’t know about you but sometimes I’ll start to stick things down onto my paper without thinking ahead. I think it’s the part of me that wants to get a layout done in less than 45 minutes lol!! Now, because I tend to do this I also have a little tip that helps me. I only add adhesive to the center of my page elements such as photos or larger sections of papers. This is key for me when I go back to tuck doilies, stickers, ephemera and other smaller pieces of papers behind other page elements or photos.

Here are a few more photos. I popped up some of the stickers with Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adjesives by 3L.      Thanks for stopping by today! If you’re interested in any of the products used today, here’s a list for you ❤️

Super cute embossed treat bags!

TGIF for sure!! It’s been a week from you know where & I’m thankful it’s done. Time to move into this weekend with some much needed crafty time. 

A couple years ago I discovered this adorable printable a blog called Parties & Patterns. They create the cutest printable treat bag toppers & party decor. Check these sweet toppers out! All you need to do is create a free account, add them to your cart (the price is ZERO) and check out. You can print them instantly. I used plain white cardstock for mine and selected matte photo paper option when printing.  They are the perfect solution for this super busy mom who loves to send cute treat-filled goody bags to school.I filled large glassine bags with a few sweet treats, folded the toppers in half then stapled them over the top. They actually print 4 toppers, one of each color, onto one sheet of 8.5″ by 11″ sheet of cardstock.  Super easy! Here are a few other ways I love to dress up the glassine bags.  I often use various scraps & embellishments from my stash.  I thought it would be really fun to add some embossing to them too.  I love how the different embossed patterns turned out.  The white shipping tags where colored with water colors and then I topped them off with Dazzlerz texture paste by Shimmerz Paints!  I use these lovely bags to give little gifts such as set of handmade cards or tags, teacher’s gifts and extra embellishments to RAK for my lovely scrappy friends near and far. 

Here are couple places to find Parties and Patterns.  I’d encourage you to check them out and use their fun printables!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Don’t forget to grab yourself some glassine bags before Halloween sneaks up on you!!

Fluttering in Today is Tuesday’s Talent, Ka Slagoski!

Hello everyone! It’s Ka here today to share a card with you. I haven’t play with the cork butterfly die-cuts from SpiegelMom Scraps, so I thought I take one out and make a birthday card with it. Honestly, I didn’t know what I was going to do with the pretty cork butterfly die-cut, so I just mostly experimented with the arrangements and layers. I felt I didn’t do the cork butterfly much justice at all.@mayartsribbon @amytangerine @americancrafts @spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @stampingsmilesdeisgns @kaslagoski

I started the card by die-cutting a white cardstock using a stitched rectangle dies. Then I ran it through the Big Shot machine with a flourishes texture plate. Next, I die-cut a piece of pastel yellow cardstock using an instax Polaroid frame dies and stamped the sentiment from Mama Elephant Fair Feathers set. I layered a piece of scrap paper with Plum Chevron Ribbon and adhered the panel behind the Polaroid frame.@mayartsribbon @amytangerine @americancrafts @spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @stampingsmilesdeisgns @kaslagoski

Next, I peeled the sticky back of the cork butterfly die-cut and put it on top of the ribbon. I created a swirly line using some black gemstones. I thought the butterfly look too plain, so I decided to add a black glossy sequin and top the sequin with a tiny gold star. I assembled all the pieces to a purple card base along with a navy burlap string. The entire Polaroid frame was popped up with foam dimensional adhesives. Then I finished the card by clipping a mini clothespin to the string and frame.

I still had a lot of fun experimenting with arrangements and layers even though I felt I didn’t do the cork butterfly justice. I hope you enjoy today’s card anyway and you can go HERE.  if you want to see the full supplies list. Thank you so much for stopping by and I’ll see you back here next week for my final post as SpiegelMom Scraps September Guest Designer!
