Fun by Evi

Hello scrapbook ladies!  I just love doing mixed media on my layouts.  The background of this layout was started during a scrap session with my Katty Miranda.  I used a stencil the typical way and then I grabbed a extra white card stock and stamped the excess ink onto this paper.  The effect is very watercolor-y.  And I used Shimmerz mists so there is shimmer there too.

I used a Dylusion stencil with heavy gloss gel and sprinkled a mint green loose glitter on top of it while it was wet.

I used more Shimmerz mists and paints onto the chip board pieces from Creative Embellishments.  These flourishes are very detailed and picks up the shimmer well.  I then picked a few die cut pieces from varies collection that sit on a bowl on my desk.  I am scrapping picture of my nephews with my parents so it was a good time to use some of these pieces I normally do not get to use.

My last detail is always sequins, the colors in Green Acres worked perfectly with the mint green glitter I used.  I randomly put a few around my layout.  If you would like to make a purchase, remember to use Evi15 for a discount.

Hello scrapbook friends!   Thank you for joining me for today’s layout.  I have a mixed media colorful background and then used black and white elements in order not to compete with the colors.  This is always a great trick when you have a colorful or busy background, print your photos in black and white, so they do not clash with the background.

We have teamed up with Creative Embellishments this month and I am able to play with the gorgeous chip board elements available in their shop.   I recently went to the State Fair and trying all the food is my main objective.  In the course of the night, I had about 8 different foodie photos and thought they would work perfectly with the fork, spoon and knife chip board pieces.

I applied a light layer of silver metallic paste by Heidi Swap on them and set aside to dry before I adhered them to my layout.

I then added mint green paint with wide brush strokes and then mists from Shimmerz in Sapphaire and Jeni B Bleu.  I used scraps of black and white papers and cut them into squares and rectangles as my ephemera.  I clustered and angled my photos and added the squares for more interest around the photos.  I added my chip board pieces as book ends to each photo.

For my finishing touches I added Sweet Pea sequins for the last details on my layout.  If you would like to make a purchase at the Spiegelmom Scraps shop, remember to use code Evi15 for a discount at checkout.

Hello my scrappy friends.  Its Evi, with another bright and bold scrapbook layout.  I went a little cray cray with the glitter for this one.  The picture is of my wonderful family during a renewal of their vows celebration.  It was a wonderful time with family and friends.

I started with the Dear Lizzy Serendipity stencil with clear gel medium and applied black glitter on top while it was wet.  This takes awhile to dry.  And be warned, this was a lot of glitter and clean up difficult.

I then used Shimmerz Coloringz in Pink Stiletto and sprayed it directly to the card stock in the lower left corner.  I wanted the area I was placing my photo to pop.

I splattered Egg noggin, Jeni B Bleu and Saphharie Vibez all around the area as well to add more color.  The embellishments are from a MAMBI chipboard sticker pack and my large title is from Pebbles.

I then add Chasing Azul and Rockin Pink Ombre sequins also available in the shop for added detail.  If you would like a discount on our purchase use code Evi15.  Thank you so much.

Hello Scrappy friends.  I love playing with products from the Spiegelmom Scraps.  I received these felt and cork cloud shape embellishments and wanted to use them on this layout.  I am scrapping a fun photo of my sister and I in the playground during a photo shoot we did for my LuLaRoe launch.  It was a cool photo.

I gessoed the white card stock and used heavy gloss gel through a Prima floral stencil.  I then sprayed Egg Noggin Vibes and Jeni B Bleu vibe from Shimmerz paints, available in the Spigelmom Scraps shop.

My title is a large from a sticker pack from MAMBI and it worked perfectly to describe my layout.  I then adhered Corky Cumulus and Cloudy Days felties as clouds in my watercolor wash of colored creating an abstract sky.

I then added peach mist from Kaiser Krafts, Cape Cod Coral from Lindy Stamp gang over the gel flowers with the packaging technique.  I had these flower die cuts from my Cameo sitting on my desk and they worked perfectly as the large embellishment on  my layout.

Hello lovely ladies of the scrapbooking community.  I sat down to scrap and printed nothing but photos of my sister and I during her last trip to Florida.  I love my sister so much and wish she lived here with me.  But our visits together are always a blast.  I printed the photos in black and white in order not to compete with whatever background and direction this layout takes me.

IMG_9810

I started with the background from Maggie Holmes Shine collection and used my 12×12 stencil from The Crafters Workshop called Capricious with heavy gel and covered it in glitter that twinkles with gold and pink.

Then I fuzzy cut out the florals from a patterned paper from the Shine collection.  I clustered them along the left vertical side of the photo.  I then used chipboard elements from Dear Lizzy.

The flair badges are from Accent Scrappbooking that were added on top of my embellishment clusters.

A layout is not complete without sequins from the shop.  I used Autumn Joys and Mint Mocha Dream for the last details of this layout.  If you would like to make a purchase, use Evi15 at checkout.  Thank you for joining me.  Till next time…. Evi.

Hello Scrapbook friends!  Welcome to the SpiegelMom Scraps blog and its already February.  My favorite month of the year because I simply love anything Valentine’s Day.  From the colors of pink and red for everything to the heart shaped designed on many products.  I have heart eyes for all scrapbook related Valentine products.  Today, I am scrapping a recent picture of me with the Valentine leggings from LuLaRoe.

I started with white card stock and layered the black scribbled heart patterned paper from last years Hello Love collection from Crate Paper with a special piece of acetate with pink glittered polka dots.  I edged the papers with red card stock and a tiny heart paper.

I used the tags from the Crate Paper collection as well and arranged them staggered for added interest.  I used the Rockin Pink Ombre sequin pack with is one of the new releases.  I also used two sizes of confetti cork hearts available in the shop for added contrast.

I recently attended my fiancé’s best friends wedding and it was an amazing experience.  This wedding was over the top in every way.  In order to keep the invitation and this photo booth pictures in tact.  I thought a scrapbook layout would be perfect.
