You Make my Heart Smile by Evi

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.

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.

We have swapped product this month with Accent Scrapbook and added two flat back flair buttons to this layout.  The pink one reads ‘Happy Moments’ and the yellow one says ‘Funny Moments’.

Hello scrapping friends!  Welcome back to the Spiegelmom Scraps blog for your daily inspiration.  I am working on a 9×12 layout today in order to have a variety of pages in my PL album.  I have so many 9×12 sleeves that I have not used, so I may be working in this format for awhile.

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.

IMG_9573

I started with my Capricious stencil from The Crafter Workshop and Heidi Swapp metallic paste in gold.  I added navy Color Shine splatters for contrast.  I did my journaling on the extra card that indicating the reception address and added gold ribbon like a tag.

For added details I added sequins from Gold Heart Confetii and Sweet Pea packs available in the shop.  The love the added gold detail of the hearts and the purple and blue mix of Sweet Pea.  If you make a purchase at the shop use code Evi15 for a discount.

Today by Evi

IMG_9157

Hello scrapbook friends! Welcome to the Spiegelmom Scraps blog for today inspiration layout.  I was able to incorporate a few great products from the shop in this layout including some Shimmerz mists, a gold dollie, and A Mermaid’s Tale sequin pack.  The colors in the sequins played off the colors in my great photo of my mother and I during Thanksgiving.

IMG_9158

I started with a beautiful cut file that has multiple 3D flowers on it.  I backed it with a bright blue colored card stock.  The blue leaves pop against my photo.  The painting in the photo my mom and I created to replicate on from Z Gallery.  Its has rich blue colors as well.

IMG_9159

I then took Jeni B Bleu Shimmerz mist and splattered the ink on some of the flowers along with Gold Color Shine.

IMG_9161

I then used a print and cut file from Wilna, that was sitting on my desk.  I layered the pieces over a gold dollie.  The florals in this die cut were a great contrast to the blue and white base i was working with.  I then used ephemera from Open Book by Maggie Holmes to fill in some the space.  I also added a few chip board elements from the Confetti line by Maggie Holmes as well.

IMG_9164

My title was from a phrase thicker pack in my stash along with the two thin blue ribbons I used in opposing corners.  Added more detail to the layout with the addition of purple and blue sequins from The Mermaid’s Tale pack.  Those details finished off my layout.  If you would like to make a purchase at the shop remember to use Evi15 for a discount at checkout.  Thank you for joining me.

Hello Scrapbook friends!  Welcome to the Spiegelmom Scraps blog for daily inspiration from our amazing design team.  Today, I have a Christmas themed layout using star cork pieces, gold dollies and Holly Berry Sequins featured on this layout.

img_8986

I am scrapping a fun photo from Christmas day.  We had the self timer on and everyone had to make a funny face.  I love each and everyone of these funny faces more and more everyday.  I am thankful for my family.  I used scraps of paper from doing my December Daily.

img_8987

Details were added with sequins on the vertical strips of paper, Holly Berry.  I layered a gold dolly behind my photo for more gold details.  I loved the kraft colored tag and thought the star cork pieces would bring more of the kraft color to my layout.

Happy Holidays by Evi

img_8953

Hello scrapbooking friends!  I am your designer for two layouts in a row.  I played around with some mixed media products for todays layout as well.  Yesterday’s layout I used the remains of the cut file and today I am using all the lovely snowflakes from the lovely cut file.

img_8955

I heat embossed some of the snowflakes with white and opal embossing powders while the rest I left plain bright white. The patterned paper is from the Deck the Halls collection from American Crafts.

img_8957

I applied gesso in a diagonal and applied mint and light blue mists from my stash with the packaging technique.  The colors blended well together.  The silver large snowflakes are from the Dollar Tree window decals.

img_8959

I adhered all the embellishments in a diagonal along with  my photo.  For added detail I added sequins from Holly Jolly pack.  The white tag was added to hold my journalling.

Cute by Evi

Hello scrappy friends! Welcome back to the Spiegelmom Scraps blog for some inspiration.   For todays layout I used the free cut file available to everyone to download.  Its has an arrangement of snowflakes and I used both parts of this cut file.  I used the stencil portion for this layout and on tomorrow’s layout I use all the cut out snowflakes.

img_8545

I first started this layout by misting gold and beige mists onto the cut file and let it dry.  I backed the cut file with a patterned paper from a paper pad from Michaels called North Pole gazette.  The patterned paper is striped with different patterns.  It worked well just peeking out from behind the snowflakes.

img_8546

I took a few of the snowflakes and heat embossed them with black and red glitter.  I cut large letters from a scrap piece of wood grain patterned paper and made the word ‘Cute’ for my title. The sequin pack called Coffee Break to add detail to the letters.

img_8547

I used my Starbucks cups and my circle punches for some more red embellishments to the layout.  The red punch of color add to the layout.

I am scrapping two current pictures of my two doxies hanging out this holiday season.  I could not get them to sit together but I had two descent ones of them separate.  lol.  Remember if you use my code Evi15 at checkout you will receive a discount on your purchase.
