Oh Happy Day by Evi

Hello scrapbook friends! Welcome to the SpiegelMom Scraps blog for todays dose of inspiration.  I am working with the Strawberry Bubblegum sequins and Rockin Pink Ombre.  I am scrapping a 5×7 photo of Miguel and I taking a selfie.

I started off with a Heidi Swapp Sun Burst stencil and used my Dylusion Paint in Lemon Zest with a Ranger blending tool.  I then used Tree Hugger Shimmerz Past-eez through a stencil from Prima.  I then wanted to add pink so i mixed pink paint and modeling paste.

Since I started out with all the color in the background, I want to utilize embellishments from my stash, so I thumbed through an older Heidi Swapp collection, Favorite things.  I loved the acetate piece that said ‘Oh Happy Day,’ I made that be my title.

For added detail, I matched my sequins to the color of the modeling paste.  So Strawberry bubblegum went with the mint green areas and Rockin Pink Ombre in the pink areas.  I used Scotch quick dry glue to adhere them.

Loving Life by Evi

Hello scrappy friends!  Today I am playing with the Amore sequin set and playing with a few Shimmerz products from the shop.  I am scrapping an old photo of me in the city from my visit to see my sister last year.  I am actually flying there this weekend for my yearly visit.

I started out with mixing Pinkadelic Acri Tonez and Rhrasberry sorbert Paste-eez to get a darker tone of pink and used a floral stencil from Prima.  With the excess not used I brushed it onto a piece of scrap paper I decide to use on the layout as it progressed.

I then started pulling anything I had on my desk in pink and magenta including some amazing glitter paper to mat my photo.  Ribbing gray tones papers for added interest.  I used this black and white brushed like patterned paper from Dear Lizzy.

The chipboard pieces are from old Studio Calico collections and the clear stickers are MAMBI.  I layered the scrap paper I wiped off my extra product on as a point of interest.

For my last detail, I added sequins from the Amore pack, available in the shop.  If you make a purchase use code Evi15 for a discount.

Hello my scrappy friends!  Today’s layout I used Green Acres and Spring Fever Sequins pack along with heart shaped cork confetti.  The paper collection is from Micheal’s called HoneyDew by Craft Smith.  I love the citron greens and pinks in the layout and the sequins matched perfectly.

I am scrapping two recent photos of me and Zoe on a dog walk.   I used layered a few patterned papers and started using my cuddle bug for my flowers.  The dies I used were by Sizzix called Simple Flowers by Lori Whitlock and I used pink toned card stock to get all my sizes.

I cut my first patterned paper in two opposite diagonals with these lovely florals in the corners.  I wanted my photos clustered together and started the gathering of all my florals.  I used a few of the cut apart pieces to add more embellishments to my layout.

A few gold elements pop on the page as well.  Always my last details is to add my sequins.  I used Green Acres first for the lovely green color that matched and then went in with Spring Fling for some color and finished with heart shaped cork pieces.

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.

Yummy! by Evi

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.
