Hi Everybody! I am SO very excited to be here at SpiegelMom Scraps as the Guest Designer for the month of July. The month started off with a bang with the new releases on July 1st including six amazing new sets of sequin mixes. Today, I am going to share a layout and process video using one of those collections, A Day in the Woods, which is shown here:
One of my favorite uses for all of these beautiful sequins is to create shaker pockets combined with cut files. The two elements naturally work well together and create a fun and unique detail on your page. This collection coordinates perfectly with SO many of the new summer collections including both Bo Bunny’s new Take a Hike Noteworthy Collection and the new Pink Paislee Outfitters collection. My layout combined some elements from both of those collections.
Without further ado, here is my completed project and some close-ups as well as some helpful hints.
From the SpiegelMom Scraps Store, I worked with the A Day in the Woods sequin mix as well as the Cork-Fetti Hearts and the Fuse Tool. I picked up some 3×4 Project Life Pockets and used those along with my Fuse Tool to create three small shaker pockets where I mixed in some sequins along with some of the mini cork hearts.
I have the larger cork hearts added to the embellishment clusters to tie it all together. One big hint for making those shaker pockets work with the cut file is to back the cut file with patterned pattern and then with some foam adhesive or Fun Foam which adds some natural dimension that you can use to allow the shaker pockets room to fit.
There are loads of hints and suggestions in the process video that I have over on my You Tube Channel to coordinate with this project. You can find that video here. I would love to see what you create with the A Day in the Woods sequin mix and hope that you will share with us here at SpiegelMom Scraps. I will be back next week with another fun project!
