Scrapbooking with Karla – Scraplifting Jen Schow!

Hello friends, and happy Thursday! Karla here today, and this week we are having a wonderful time scraplifting the most amazing Jen Schow! I really liked this layout below that she created, and thought it would be a nice way to use some of the 3×4 photos that I usually print out with the Project Life App, as well as using up some of the pretty journaling cards I have in my stash!

I decided to start off with some older CTMH papers from my stash and the coordinating stickers. The colours looked great with my photos and since they had an outdoorsy theme it went well. I also had some Project Life cards that I thought would go well with the papers and photos and then grabbed the Sweet Pea, Deck The Halls, Orange Blossom and Ferris Wheel sequin mixes.

I added some Stickles and Glossy Accents to highlight different areas of the stickers and Tim Holtz botanical ephemera. The orange blossom sequin mix had the perfect tiny flowers to add detail to the mushroom sticker, and I love how the larger flower from the mix has a bit of iridescence to it and coordinated perfectly!

Just by adding some sequins to the journaling card and paper flower I was able to coordinate both elements, and add that little bit of something extra special to my layout!

I really liked how the reds in the Deck The Halls went with the coral colour in the stickers and flair badge, and I used the Abandoned Coral Distress Ink to stamp some little triangular images on the background. I even added a little of the Natural Burlap String on the tiny sticker tag.

Scrapbooking with Karla – Scraplifting Shimelle!

Hi, Karla here today! This week we’re scraplifting Shimelle Laine! She is one of my favourite scrapbookers, who has had such an amazing influence in the world of scrapbooking. From Two Peas to Glitter Girl, she’s helped break down the ‘rules’ of scrapbooking and help us understand why things work and how to do them. Here’s a look at Shimelle’s layout that I chose to scraplift-

@shimelle
Layout by Shimelle Laine

I didn’t have the new Glitter Girl collection that Shimelle used, but I did have two other of her collections – True Stories and Starshine, so I decided to use the papers and stickers from those to create my layout along with the Star Spangled, Honor Guard and Hey Kiddo sequin mixes.

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @shimelle @karlayungwirth @americancrafts #spiegelmomscraps #sequins #scrapbooking #scraplifting #shimelle #memorykeeping #truestories #starshine #embellishments #papercrafting

I love the paper layers, and for anyone who struggles to create layers to frame a photo this is a good way to get started on how to do it – by following someone else’s layout.

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @shimelle @karlayungwirth @americancrafts #spiegelmomscraps #sequins #scrapbooking #scraplifting #shimelle #memorykeeping #truestories #starshine #embellishments #papercrafting

I love the blue star sequins in the Honor Guard sequin mix! Even though there are pinks in the photo and some on the papers, I chose to focus on the primary colours. I even used the round camera lenses as a place to add some sequin details for a more subtle, but fun effect.

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @shimelle @karlayungwirth @americancrafts #spiegelmomscraps #sequins #scrapbooking #scraplifting #shimelle #memorykeeping #truestories #starshine #embellishments #papercrafting

I love adding different textures together, such as the Tim Holtz sentiment sticker, the star chipboard sticker, the banner cut paper sentiment and the clear sticker popped up on foam dots together with the different sizes and colours of sequins!  They all look cohesive, but your eye has lots of different things to look at.

Scrapbooking With Karla – Scraplifting Katty Miranda!

Hello friends! It’s Karla here today with another awesome Scraplift! I am really loving the scraplifting theme this month. I’m finding new techniques and ideas that I wouldn’t normally have tried without scraplifting someone. This week the Design Team is scraplifting the awesome Katty Miranda! She’s so amazing!!

Here’s a look at her layout that I used to base my scrapbook page on-@kattymiranda #scraplift #scrapbooklayout

And, here’s what I created! I loved the diecut circle background, so I used the Kaisercraft Wildflower paper and Kaisercraft Nesting Stitched Circle Dies. I used some to cut the outside as well as the inside and used both the back and front side of the circles. This paper is so gorgeous, it’s sometimes hard to decide which side to use! I used one of the coordinating circle sticker elements ‘You Are Perfect” as a title, popped up with foam dots.

I used my sewing machine and stitched along both the top and bottom of my layout, alternating a couple different zigzag stitches with a straight stitch. I love the texture stitching adds!

The Tim Holtz Botanical ephemera was just perfect to add to this layout about my daughter at the Calgary Zoo where a butterfly landed on her hand. I used tacky glue and some foam dots to arrange the flowers and butterflies in a diagonal arrangment. I love the watercolour butterfly sticker that came in the Wildflower paper pack, and added it along the bottom of the layout with a couple strips of paper and a branding strip.

The gorgeous flower sequins in the Jaded Hearts and Wild & Free Sequin Mixes made a lovely little trail for the pretty butterfly. I used some Glossy Accents to adhere them to the page, and I love the dimension they add!

Here’s a closeup of the beautiful sequin mixes I’ve used today – Jaded Hearts and Wild & Free! The Wild & Free was actually created to coordinate with the Kaisercraft Wildflower papers <3

Scrapbooking with Karla – Paper Layering Scraplift

Hello friends! Karla here today with another scrapbook page following along with our Scraplift theme – and this week it’s the amazing Kat Benjamin or KraftyKat as she’s also known! I love her clean style, and I love how she coordinates the products she’s using! She also makes awesome pocket pages <3

I decided to scraplift Kat’s page Hey Handsome – here’s a look at it:@katbenjamin @kraftykat9

I really liked the layers of paper she used and the striking black title, so even though I went with a totally different colour scheme I followed the basic layout. I really love scraplifting – I think it makes you try different ideas and styles that you might not otherwise, and you just might find something you love! I chose an older collection I had in my stash – Jubilee by My Mind’s Eye and the awesome NEW sequin mixes from the SpiegelMom Scraps Store: Star Spangled, Girly Glitter and Ferris Wheel!

@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @mymindseyeinc @katbenjamin #spiegelmomscraps #smssequins #sequinlove #kraftykat9 #katbenjamin #scraplift #mymindseyeinc #scrapbooklayout #12x12 #scrapbooking #papercrafting #memorykeeping #journaling #cleanandsimple

I used a 1″ circle punch to cut out coordinating papers and placed them on in a similar way to Kat’s page. I even pop-dotted one to give it a little extra dimension. I pulled colours from my photo and paper when choosing the sequins and I grouped them around each circle.

@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @mymindseyeinc @katbenjamin #spiegelmomscraps #smssequins #sequinlove #kraftykat9 #katbenjamin #scraplift #mymindseyeinc #scrapbooklayout #12x12 #scrapbooking #papercrafting #memorykeeping #journaling #cleanandsimple

I really liked the black title on Kat’s page, so I decided to use one of the acetate overlays from this collection, backed by a piece of patterned paper. I added a strip of the arrow paper to add some colour above the title and used a chipboard sentiment to add dimension. A few more sequins above and below the title follow Kat’s layout, and I added my journaling by first penciling in straight lines and writing with a Faber Castel pen.

Mixed Media With Karla – Keepin’ It Real Scraplift

Hi friends! Karla here today with a fun Mixed Media layout! Our theme this week is to scraplift the infamous Missy Whidden! She is so amazingly talented – I was a little intimidated to even attempt this!!

Here’s a look at Missy’s awesome scrapbook layout. You can check it out on Instagram HERE or watch her YouTube process video HERE.

I loved the mixed media circles she layered on, so I decided to try my Distress Paints using the same technique she showed in her video with the Shimmerz Paste-eez (which you can find in the SpiegelMom Scraps Store!!) It was fun to try a few new techniques and step outside my comfort zone! I think that’s important for everyone to do once in a while. I even decided to post a crazy face photo, and this Keepin’ It Real sticker from the Pink Paislee Take Me Away collection was the perfect title 😉 and the bright sequins from the Jaded HeartsNeon Summer and Gotta Love Emoji’s mixes were just the right pop!

I used some Dylusions mists on my background, spraying on a piece of acetate and smooshing it onto my background in blue, green and purple colours. It was great to get them out of the drawer! Since my photos were very neutral I felt like it was the perfect opportunity to use lots of background colours.

I used some Shimelle Starshine stickers and added a bit of thread under my handcut paint blobs. After I first layered on the thread, I realized I had it in too much of a perfect circle, lol, so I had to mess it up a bit!

I layered my photos on some Hazel & Ruby printed tissue paper from my stash and then on top of some plain green tissue paper. I love the bit of texture that gives, and I popped up a few of the paint dabs to give some dimension.

Creative Cards with Karla – Stitched Laundry Birthday Card!

Howdy friends! It’s Karla back today to share a fun stitched birthday card! Now, usually you wouldn’t associate laundry with FUN but when you combine the Lawn Fawn Loads of Fun stamps along with lots of SpiegelMom Scraps sequins, burlap string and felties, you can’t help but have fun!! Our theme this week is to add stitching to a project, so I got out my sewing machine and added a zigzag stitch over the Black May Arts Burlap String to add a little clothes line to hang my laundry on. I have lots of fun stitches that I’ve never even used on my machine, so I thought I’d try a cross stitch one along the bottom of the card. I love how that turned out, and I’ll definitely be using it more! I even grabbed some Kaisercraft Nesting Stitched Squares Dies and cut a background from some pink Shimelle Starshine paper.

Today I pulled out Fairy Garden, Be True 2 You and Jaded Hearts sequin mixes to use on my card. After I coloured my images with Jane Davenport coloured pencils and added some paper piecing with some Shimelle Starshine papers I had lots of fun adding these sequins!

I used one of the heart felties to do some handstitching on, doing a ‘blanket stitch’ around the edge, sewing on a button and adding sequins by stitching a ‘french knot’ into the center of each pretty little flower. A quick online search will show you lots of handstiches you can try!@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @lawnfawn @americancrafts @shimellelaine @kaisercraft #smssequins #sequins #sequinlove #handstitching #machinestitching #fauxstitching #diecutting #stamping #paperpiecing #cardmaking #greetingcard #happybirthday #felt #coloredpencils #laundry #loadsoffun

Inside, I used another of the Kaisercraft Nesting Stitched Squares Dies, inked and stamped with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink.

Here’s a look at the supplies I used from the SMS Shop:

Fairy Garden, Be True 2 You and Jaded Hearts sequin mixes

Black May Arts Burlap String

Kaisercraft Nesting Stitched Squares Dies

The Heart Felties are now sold out! There are a few Felties left in the shop and they are being discontinued to make room for fun, new things. But don’t let that stop you from grabbing some felt and diecutting or handcutting your own to try some stitching techniques on!

 

I popped my cute laundry up with foam dots to add some dimension, and I can’t wait to give this to a special friend on their birthday! I’m sure I’ll even think about how much fun I had making this card while I’m doing real laundry later today 😉

Pocket Page Scrapbooking with Karla – Happy Birthday Canada!

Hi friends! It’s Karla here today with a fun birthday layout for this week’s theme on the SpiegelMom Scraps blog – ‘Scrapbook a Birthday You Normally Wouldn’t’! Well, since it was recently Canada’s 150th birthday, I thought I’d use this opportunity to scrapbook Canada Day! I grabbed the Honor Guard, Be True 2 You and My Clementine sequin mixes to match with my photos and the papers I was using. I really love mixing and matching the amazing colours in each sequin mix! I love the iridescent colours in the My Clementine mix – when I put it on my paper it took on a beautiful green. And the Honor Guard has a gorgeous red – perfect for 4th of July and Canada Day, but also wonderful for any time you need a pop of red colour!

I used the awesome Strong & Free collection from Wild Whisper and grabbed some of their 4×6 and 3×4 cards as well as some of the patterned paper from the 12×12 sheets. I layered some of the diecut and cork (linked below) and stamped a date. Now, I don’t know about you, but I can NEVER get those date stamps to work right the first time, lol! So, I just roll with it and make it look like I meant for it to look like that 😉 The maple leaf journaling card was beautiful, but of course I love adding a few sequins to make it shine!

This fun Happy Birthday cutfile and the ones I used above are FREE HERE, along with lots of other awesome cutfiles! I used a gold pen to colour in the flames and add an ombre effect to the letters. The secret to getting the files down in the right spot after you cut them is to lay the negative cut down and then glue in your cuts. After, you simply pull up the negative frame. I used a border strip from the Wild Whisper papers and added a row of sequins with Glossy Accents. A few more of the cutfiles layered over top and a little maple leaf tag hanging on some SpiegelMom Scraps Hunter Green burlap string completes this card!
