Kobe by Evi


Hello Scrapbook friends!  For this month, we have been playing with sketches each week.  This weeks composition is structured with a circle element in the center with other embellishments. My layout stays close to the sketch this week.  I am scrapping a photo of my Doxie, Kobe, at the dog park recently.  I love taking him there to run around and play.


My background pattern paper came from a paper pad from Micheals called Mixed Media.  It it a fabulous collection of distressed, mixed media, collage and stenciled background papers.  Some have speciality featured like gold embossing, glitter details or texture.


I started out with white modeling paste and a circle stencil from Dina Wakely.  I then used a weave stencil from Prima with 3D gloss gel and sprinkled brown glitter over it before it dried.  Most people would have stopped there, but I added Black Lava paste through a polka dot stencil randomly around the page.


I drew the circles freely to resemble the sketch.  I used a Zig vellum writer with a bold tip.  I then layered my photo with glassine bags from the Spiegelmom Scraps store and a few dollies.   I have the embellishment pack from Maggie Holmes’s Open Book that I layered heavily for the layout.


My added detail to the layout are confetti cork stars and sequins from Mocha Mint Dream.  I love the added detail around the circle elements.

Real Life by Evi


Hello Scrappy peeps! Welcome back to another layout done by yours truly.  This month we will be following wonderful sketches provided by my lovely design team, I hope you are playing along.  I took this weeks sketch literally and used butterflies as my focal embellishment.


The cut file is from the Silhouette Design studio as a 3D butterfly that I cut out multiply times.  I used patterned paper from Maggie Holmes Bloom for the butterflies and the wood grain on the right side.  I layered dollies underneath my photo from the shop.


I used ‘Sea you in the Mornin’ Dazzlers through a 12×12 stencil by TCW called Capricious.  Remember scrapbookers that Dazzlers takes a long time to dry so plan accordingly.


I added sequins from Spring Blooms for added detail to the layout.  My title is from Pink Fresh Studio, Felicity Collection.  I added a few butterfly cork pieces to the layout as well.

Lots of Love by Evi


Hello Scrappy Peeps! Welcome back to the SpiegelMom Scraps blog for fun inspiration.  We are working with sketches the month of November.


I started out with a gray patterned paper from Amy Tangerine Rise and Shine collection because my photo had similar gray tones.  I then cut pink toned patterned papers from my scraps stash on my desk.  I cut the paper into rectangle shapes in all sizes and started adhering them in a diagonal arrangement.


Some variation was achieved with adding white background papers as well.  In order to pick up more of the pink, I added sequins from Passion Flower.  For added details, I add cork hearts from the shop as well.


Thank you so much for joining me.  If you make a purchase at the shop remember to be use Evi15 for a discount.

#Remember by Evi


Hello my scrappy ladies!  Today I am playing with Dazzlers and cork pieces from The SpiegelMom Scraps store.  I started out with Sea You in the Morning Dazzler and a stencil from Dina Wakely called Arrows.  Remember to give your Dazzlers enough time to dry because I have smudged a few layouts in my time being inpatient.  The soft minty color of the texture paste worked perfectly with the Bloom collection from Maggie Holmes.


My Cameo was used to cut out the circle floral element on the page first and I liked it with just the stencil work, but it needed more.  So, I choose the patterned paper with with chevron/arrow looking paper and used a few pieces to add more interest.


Keeping with the chevron/arrow pattern of the this layout, I used the Cork Confetti pieces in Cheveron.  They worked perfectly once again with where my layout was heading.  I used an entire pack of these chevron pieces on my layout.  Whoops!   It adds a punch to my layout.


I have a lot of sequins to choose from in my stash and no layout is complete without a few sequins on my page.  So I took a few from Mocha Mint Dream.  Use Evi15 for a discount at checkout.

I love right now by Evi


Hello fellow scrapbookers!  Thank you for stopping by again, this is Evi and I am scrapping a quick selfie with my parents after dinner the weekend we moved into our house.  We went out to dinner and I always need to snap a selfie.  I started out with Dazzlers Pucker up Pink (available in the Spiegelmom Scraps shop) with my Doodle Stencil from the Crafters Workshop.  Please let the Dazzlers dry for an hour or so.


I then highlighted the stencil with bright green sequins from Spring Blooms sequins.  The two colors contrast nicely for this layout and stand out.


I matted my photo with a white dollie and black and white paper and used a few black elements for some contrast.  The title is from Amy Tangerine and the other ephemera are from her Better Together collection.


Some yellow tangled thread add a bit of interest in a corner of the photo and a bite of journaling to remember the moment.

Sisters by Evi


Hello Scrappy Peeps!  It is Evi again for a colorful layout using products from the SpiegelMom Scraps shop.  I cannot get enough of photos I did with my sister during her visit.  For this layout I stay with my pinks, oranges and hints of yellow.


I started off with spraying two white dollies with orange, pink and yellow mists from my collection. I did bursts of spray concentrated in an area to peek out from behind my dollies.  The feathers I had in my stash once again only picked out the same three colors.


Once the dollies and feathers were added I knew I wanted to add in some sequins in the same colors as well. I used Spring Blooms and picked out only the yellow and pink sequins and left the blue toned ones behind.


I mounted my photo on some fun foam and added tangled thread underneath before glueing down my photo.  The pink alphas are Amy Tangerine and I kept it simple with just one word, “Sisters.”  Use Evi15 at checkout for a discount on your purchase.

Meet Me in the Sunshine with Evi


Hello Scrappy peeps!! I totally borrowed that from Adele from Inkie Quill.  Welcome back to the Spiegelmom Scraps blog and I have another bold colorful layout for you.  Its not an Evi “layout” if its not colorful.  I am scrapping a fun photo once again of my sister and I dressed like twinsies at the zoo on her trip to Florida.  Yes, we went to the zoo by our selves and took a lot of photos and the fact that we were dressed in the same outfit made us look like twins but we are three years apart.


I started out with all my pink, red and orange mists in my collection.  I then added modeling paste through a confetti stencil to add some texture and interest to the background.


I used my Cameo to cut out the whimsical cut file and left it bright white to contrast with the bold pink, red orangey goodness I achieved with my mists.  I worked with these colors because of our tie dye shirts we were wearing.


In order to incorporate the blue color I used this gorgeous sequins pack available in the shop called Let’s Be Mermaids.  It has these two blue tones, yellow and pink sequins in the mix.  The blue ones contrast with the pink background.

Beautiful Together with Evi


Hello fellow scrapbookers!  Todays layout I am playing with a little bit of everything available at the Spiegelmom Scraps shop.  I am using Dazzlers, cork confetti pieces and some sequins.  On my sister’s trip we defiantly took a ton of photos.  And I am still scrapping my way through them all.


I started out with a star stencil in my collection and used Coral me Crazy and Sea U in the Mornin Dazzlers.  I then glued on the cork chunky confetti stars in a diagonal orientation.  I then added coralish and mint sequins from the Mocha Mint Dream pack for added interest.


I matted my photo with the cut apart sheet from the Fancy Free collection by Pink Paislee. My title came from the Shine collection from Maggie Holmes.  I went in with some coral and mint mists from my stash for my last added details to the layout.

Beautiful Moments with Evi


Good day ladies!  How fun is it to start a layout on colored card stock? Super fun.  I love the pretty teal blue card stock and I wanted the contrast from using white sequins, dollies and ‘Spun Sugar’ Dazzlers on this layout.


I started off with using a 6×6 stencil from the Crafter’s Workshop called ‘Art is’ with Spun Sugar Dazzlers from Shimmerz.  I then started layering different layers of ribbon, crepe paper, dollies, and wrapping paper pieces.  I had to adhere these layers with hot glue because of my mixed media in the background.


Once this was complete I misted a Heidi Swapp script word ‘beautiful’ with Navy and Peacock Color Shine and used the Aqua Fitzgerald font alphas for my title.  I added a flair from my stash, tangled with white thread behind it.


I added Wedding Bells sequins to a few areas for some lovely white contrast against the blue card stock.  I love this added detail to the layout and I finished it with white splatter marks.  I loved working with colored card stock for this layout.  Everyone should give it a try.  Remember to use Evi15 at checkout for a discount.

Best Ever with Evi


Hello lovely ladies!  This is Evi and I have this fun layout to share with you featuring the Autumn Joy sequin pack.  This sequin pack is apart of the new releases for the month and the colors are rich, natural creamy tones which are available at the Spiegelmom Scraps shop.


I started out with a soft pink/peachy card stock and used gel medium to adhere ripped pages from a book.  The book paper is a vanilla tone and I layered many pieces.  Splatters were then added with the Coral and Pink Color Shines from Heidi Swapp.  I had this huge wood veneer sitting in my stash and it was going to be the focal point to my layout.


First, I gold heat embossed the entire wood veneer and I decided on its location on the layout. I then used Tomboy Mono liquid glue and adhered all the Autumn Joy sequin in a circle because I wanted them to peak through the letters of the wood veneer. For added bling I also added a few around the circle.  This really became the center of the layout.


I am using two photo booth strips of my mother and me acting silly one weekend together.  I layered them with a white and gold dollies available in the shop.  Some tangled thread behind the photo graphs and the floral die cuts are from Wildflowers from WRMK.  I did two sweet bows with cream sheer ribbon on the top and bottom of the photo stripe.  I love finishing off my layouts with the gold hearts from Gold Sweetheart Confetti pack, also available at the shop.  Remember to use my coupon Evi15 for a discount.

Sun-n-Fun with Evi


Hello my wonderful Scrappy friends!  Thank you so much for joining me for another fun layout using the gorgeous sequins from the Spiegelmom Scraps shop.  Today I am playing with Spring Blooms and it match perfectly with the Simple Stories current summer collection Sunshine and Happiness.



I started off with the 6×6 paper pad and cut half inch stripes of paper.  I choose to include every patterned paper in this collection.  I was inspired by a layout recently that showed this herringbone/ weaving look using multiple stripes of paper.  I tried to remember the pattern as best I can.  In order to add that added interest to my layout, I applied the Spring Blooms sequins in rows on top of my design.  This process took the bulk of my design time, but the end result was well worth it.


I did have to let this dry before I continued to add my photo and rest of my embellishments.  The sequins coordinate perfectly with this Simple Stories collection.  I added the sequins in rows parallel to the design I made.  I nearly used all 3 teaspoons of sequins for this layout.  I could have stopped mid way, but I love to make an impact with these sequins.  They are simply gorgeous to me.


I added chipboard, dies, stickers all from the Sunshine and Happiness collection.  The title Sun-n-Fun was from the Poolside collection by Crate Paper last year.  The thickers were sitting in my stash.  I hope you enjoyed my colorful layout.  Remember to use Evi15 at checkout for discount on your purchases.  I have linked my process video down below for your viewing pleasure.

Cherish by Evi


Our gorgeous mood board has lovely pinks and blues and I was heavily inspired by it for this layout.  I first cut out butterflies with  my Cameo and arranged them to be colored.  I used half with pink tones from Shimmerz paints and the other half with light blues.


Once the butterflies were dried I used clear glue to adhere Wedding Bells sequins on the blue ones and  Pinky Pie Pinks on the pink butterflies.  I set them aside and let them dry as well.


I then cut a larger die cut for the background from the Silhouette design store.  It is a detailed floral pattern.  I was going to use it has a stencil with some Dazzlers but I decided to just leave it as it and have white on white for the background.


I am scrapping a photo I took at my Aunt’s vow renewal recently.  I layered the photo with tracing paper and dollies from the SpiegelMom Shop.  My title “cherish” is from the Pink Paislee Fancy Free collection in chunky silver glitter.  I held back on doing any splatters for this layout, as the simplicity sang to me.  If you’d like a discount on your purchase at the SpiegelMom Scraps shop use Evi15 for a discount.

Best Ever with Evi


Hello my wonderful scrappy friends!  I have a bright and colorful layout for you today.  I challenged myself to use a few products found in her shop.  The Pucker Up Pink Dazzlers used for the stencil work, the Passion Flower sequins, the white dollie and the large glassine bags for layering are all found at her shop.


I started our with a polka dot stencil I cut from my Cameo and used the Pucker Up Pink Dazzler pastes by Shimmerz Paints.  They are shinny texture paste and they are all gorgeous.  Once that was dried I adhered Passion Flower sequins to the outer edge of some of the dots with Scotch Quick dry glue.


The large glassine bags I cut to different sizes as a multi layer pieces and I managed to even squeeze a white dollie into one of the layers.  I love the look of all the different textures each element brings.  I added some white crepe paper to the outer edge for a ruffle effect.


I finished my layout off with a 3D bow and my title Best Ever from a Thicker collection in my stash.  No layout is complete without some gold Color Shine splatters.  Thank you so much or viewing.  Remember to use Evi15 at checkout for a discount on these products.  I have linked my process video down below.
