Fancy Free Layout with Sarah

Hello there, SMS fans!  It’ s Sarah on the blog today with an 8.5×11 layout using the new Fancy Free collection from Paige Evans and Pink Paislee.  Here it is:

Fancy Free

I started with an 8.5×11 piece of textured white card stock.  I layered a few pieces of the patterned paper from the collection with a 4.5×6.5 piece of Large Glassine Bag.  I used foam dots to make my photo stand out.  Amazingly, I did not use one piece of ephemera from the collection.  I wanted to challenge myself to only using the paper pad and goodies from the SMS shop.  I fussy cut a few flowers from the patterned paper and made two clusters.  I also cut a White Lace Paper Doily in half and tucked it behind my photo.


I used Cloudy Days Felties clouds and a wood cloud from Chic Tags to make a cluster.  I embellished with the new sequin mix in the shop that matches the Fancy Free collection.  I also ran a toner sheet thru my Minc using Mint and Pink foils and punched out a few hearts with a hand punch.


I used the Kaisercraft Summer Word Die Set to die cut the words “fun” and “relax”.  I used silver and teal glitter card stock similar to the colors that the Thickers from the Fancy Free collection come in.  I finished with some Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Peach and added some enamel dots.


I ran a label thru my Minc with Silver foil and tucked it in with a Medium Shipping Tag to add hidden journalling.  I stamped the date on with my Becky Higgins roller date stamper and called it done!

I hope you enjoyed my layout!  I wanted to show that you do not need every single piece of a collection to attain a beautiful look, all you need is some paper, your tools and a few goodies from the SMS shop!

Mom Layout with Katty Miranda


Hello friends! Katty Miranda here to share a 12×12 Scrapbooking Layout. This week I am scrapbooking a photo of me and my beautiful mom. The photo was taken recently on Mothers Day. I made the photo black and white and decided to use a color scheme that I am currently in love with, Orange and Pink. I began with a technique that I am also in love with lately which is using a stencil and the Shimmerz Dazzlerz on velum. I remembered I had purchased some velum envelopes in a clearance sale at a local office depot a while back. I decided to use those to create my flowers. I began with a Stencil from the Crafters Workshop called Mini Scallop Flowers. I used the Dazzlers in Dreamscicle and Tutti Frutti. I created several of the scallop circle flowers and then grouped them together to create 3 bigger flowers. I also used a Heidi Swapp leaf stencil with the Sea U in the Mornin Dazzlers to create some leaves for my flowers. I added a sequin from the Gold Sequin Confetti in the center of each flower. I love how they turned out.

I matted the photo of my mom and I on a craft/white diagonal stripe paper. Then I used the Kaisercraft Finders Keepers Paper pad and I used a fun pink camera paper to create a second mat. Lastly I used craft cardstock to mat the whole thing. The craft makes the whole photo pop a bit more. I then used a Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly punch to puck out 4 butterflies. I misted the butterflies with my Heidi Swapp color shine in gold. I also added a few of the Peachy Sherbet Sequins to the butterflies.  For my tittle I used American crafts thickers in a gold Marquee font called Buckaroo.  I finished off the layout with a few gold Heidi Shine and Black India Ink splatters.

To frame the whole page I added an orange diagonal stripe paper from the Crate Paper Wonder collection.  I love how simple and soft it turned out.


There is a process video on my YouTube channel:

See you next Sunday. Thanks so much for stopping by. XOXO – Katty

Scrapbook Sessions

Hi Guys, Laura here sharing a layout featuring the gorgeous Glass Slipper sequin mix.

PicMonkey Collage

I’ve had a play with some new to me cut files.  To be honest they are so gorgeous it doesn’t take much to make a lovely layout with them.


I went for the layered approach and backed some of the apertures with patterned papers.  I added a few foam adhesive squares to pop up some leaves and flowers.


I then went through and stuck some Glass Slipper sequins down and added a few Moonshine Delight too.  I tried to place them on all the different levels of die cuts.  This mix of sequins really catch the light and having a bit of sparkle on all the different levels accentuates the dimension of the layout.

Hello card

Hi everyone it’s Anna Sigga here with you on this fine Friday!


I love to play with watercolor and sequins and this card came together so quickly when I had finished coloring my background.


I used the Lilac Twinkle and Mermaid Green sequins to add a a bit of sparkle to the water-colored background. Then I added one White Lace Paper Doily to give my flowers and title some weight.


Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope your Friday is a colorful one!

Over the look layout by Lea

Hello girls, Lea here today and i want to sharenel which I used a lot of embellishments that you can find in our shop …
Well, I have prepared my patterned paper with various stamps and embossing powder white (alphabet, borders, floral elements) and various splashes of color (green, turquoise and white. Once prepared the base, I started working on the construction of various levels: I used shipping tags, patterned paper, doily, adding various thicknesses to create more movement to the composition. finally, I added the various embellishments, to enrich and emphasize here and there.

Sequins And Cut Files..

…play together wonderfully! Hello everyone and I hope that your Wednesday is shaping up to be a wonderful one. For my layout today I decided to use a monochromatic color scheme and fill my clouds with a bunch of beautiful Aqua Marine Dream sequins and these super cute Felt-Fetti hearts..I used the teal ones,but there are lots of cute colors in the shop.

Here is my finished layout-


And some close- ups-



I did make a little bit of a sequin explosion when I did this layout..but for the most part, it was easy to do. And a little extra glitter in your scrapbooking room is always a good thing. :)

I also have a process video that shows all the steps to create my layout…including how to foil without any special machines and my fun with these gorgeous sequins.

Have A Lovely Day!
