Sand Play Layout with Katty Miranda

scrapbook-sessions

Hello friends! Welcome back! Sadly, this will be my last post. I have loved being a member of this amazing team and I will continue to use the amazing Spiegelmom Scraps products. Today I am sharing a 12×12 layout. I am using one of this months free cut files. I decided to shrink it down and printed it 5 times.

This cut file reminds me of seashells so it was perfect for a beach photo. I chose to use a photo of my youngest son at the beach when he was younger. I arranged the 5 cut files on a White American Crafts Cardstock and I glued some of them together to create a fun design.  I used a few of my Shimmerz Paints Mist to color the cut files. I created a rainbow of colors. I used Coloringz in My Bleeding HeartPeachy Keen, Mandarin Mai Tai,  Don’t Citron Me,  and a mix of Well Blue me Down and a Vibez in Jeni B Blue.

I decided to embellish using stickers from the Carta Bella Beach Day Collection and the beautiful Believe in You Sequin Mix. I also added some tangled thread in coordinating colors.

Bloom Shaker Card with Katty Miranda

Hello everyone! Welcome back! Katty here to share a fun Shaker card. I began with a circular card floral cut file from the Silhouette Studio. I fell in love with this card the moment I saw it. I am drawn to anything floral.

I used White American Crafts Textured Cardstock to cut the file. I then used some of my Shimmerz Paints to color the flowers on the front of the card. I used Coloringz in Pink Stilettos, Peachy Keen and Mandarin Mai Tai. For the leaves I mixed a Coloringz in Don’t Citron Me and a Spritz in Bamboo Leaf.

I decided to add my sentiment behind the shaker area. I used a stamp set from Teresa Collins and Heat Embossed the word “Bloom” using white embossing powder. I then filled the shaker area with the Indian Summer Mix, which are beautiful orange sequins. I also aded a border around the card using the flatback green sequins from the A Day in the Woods Mix.

Today Layout with Katty Miranda

scrapbook-sessions

Hello friends! Katty here to share another 12×12 layout with you all. Today I am scrapbooking a photo of my boyfriend and I, I actually started out with another photo but as the layout progressed I decided to switch it out. The original photo was just too dark.

I began with White American Crafts Textured Cardstock as my background. I took one of the beautiful 8″ Chantilly White Lace Doilies and cut in into two parts, one a bit larger than the other. I added fun foam to the center to raise them up and give them some dimension  and placed them on opposite sides of my page, the smaller piece on the top left hand side and the bigger piece on the bottom right hand side. I used a purple twine and a mint green Jute and threaded it through the edges of the center of the doily.

I used some of my Shimmerz Paints mists in Peachy Keen, Heidi Ho Blue and Oh Say Can You Sea and with a brush added a few colors behind the doily. I also used the Peachy Keen and colored the center of the doily. I added a few splatters in the center area of the page.

I added two clusters of embellishments from my stash. I also added a few of the Love You Tons Felt Hearts in the clusters. I used an Amy Tangerine Kraft word thicker for my tittle. I scattered around the beautiful Sweet Pea Sequins  as well as the Morning Dew Drops.

I placed my photo on top of the doily on the bottom right. I cut my picture in a circle shape to mimic the doily. I then used the Sweet Pea mix as a border around my picture.

I love how it turned out. This was really fun to make. There is a process video on my channel if you’d like to watch.

December Daily Days 4-6

Hello friends! Katty here. I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas. I can’t believe this will be my last post this year. Today I am sharing my December Daily Days 4-6. I have made another 6×6 double page spread. Just like my previous spread for days 1-3, days 4-6 were very uneventful so I was able to fit all three days in this double page spread.

I used two matching pieces of patterned paper which I cut down to 6×6. It is a grey patterned paper with small white bows on it. I also used a fuchsia chevron patterned paper, I cut along the chevron and added it to the top and bottom of the spread. My numbers for each day are from Freckled Fawn and I embossed them with white embossing powder. I used  a scallop circle punch and  teal and white stripped patterned paper behind the numbers. I printed some photos in black and white and some in color.

On the left side I decided to use some corrugated red foil letter stickers which have been in my stash for quite a while. I added some rows of sequins on both pages as well. I used the Fuchsia sequins from the Amore mix and the red ones from the Believe in You mix.

I added a red doily and some thin teal foil wash tape from my stash.

I also used the Teal Heart Felties and Cork Stars to finish off my page.

December Daily- Days 1-3

Hello friends! Katty here. I am extremely behind on my December Daily this year. I’m so glad I was finally able to get started. Today I am sharing Days 1-3. I have made a double 6×6 page spread. Since days 2 and 3 were very uneventful I was able to fit all three days in this double page spread.

I began with two matching pieces of patterned paper which I cut down to 6×6. They are red with white polka dots. For my left side layout I wanted to welcome back our Elf on the Shelf Buddy. I added some teal patterned paper to the bottom half. I also used a fiskars scalloped border punch with American Crafts white textured cardstock and some teal glitter tape to separate the two patterns. I added a lovely White Lace Paper Doily behind my photo of my Elf Buddy which I made round with a circle punch.

I added half circle stickers to the top and bottom of the page and I embellished with Chunky Cork Hearts and white flat back sequins from a retired mix which can also be found in the Happy Dance Mix.

fullsizerender-76

I used white Freckled Fawn puffy alpha stickers to write out my tittle. My numbers for each day are also from Freckled Fawn and I embossed them with white embossing powder.

fullsizerender-78

For the page on the right I used all of the same products. I also added a tag with some Red Bakers twine.

fullsizerender-79

I printed some photos in black and white and some in color. I also added some blear phrase stickers from Recollections on one of the photos and over the patterned paper.

 

I’m really happy with how it turned out. Last years album was way too thick so I’m trying to find ways to slim it down this year and this seemed like a good option since there wasn’t much going on these three days.

December Daily Filler Page by Katty Miranda

Hello friends! Welcome back, Katty here. Can you believe it is already December? This year has gone by way too quickly.  I am sharing a filler page for my December Daily. this page will go directly behind my cover page.  I created a fun and simple page. I began with a grey and white diagonal stripped patterned paper which I cut down to 6×6. That is the size of my album. I began by using my Shimmerz Paints Coloringz in three colors, My Bleeding Heart, Pink Stilettos,  and Well Blue me Down. I used the bottle nozzle and added splatters in all three colors, mainly to the center of my 6×6 sheet of patterned paper.

fullsizerender-65

I added a chipboard piece from American Crafts in the center. I then embellished with the red sequins from the Holly Berries Sequin mix, the teal ones from the Build a Snowman Sequin mix,  and the fuchsia ones from the Amore Sequin mix. I scattered them around where I had done the ink splatters. I also added The Heart Felties string of hearts in aqua and white.

This was simple and easy to create. I love how it turned out. Thanks so much for stopping by. Remember for any purchases made in the Spiegelmom Scraps shop use code Katty15 for 15% off.

Happy Layout with Katty Miranda

Hello friends! Welcome back! Katty here to share a 12×12 layout with you all. I was inspired by this weeks sketch from Let’s Get Sketchy.

img_0151

I started with White American Crafts textured cardstock. I decided switched it up a bit. I used one photo instead of two and rather than a full circle in the background I used a half circle cut file I purchased from JustNick. It has open florals and it is very pretty. I decided to use the Shimmerz Coloringz in Peachy Keen using the packaging technique behind the open flowers. I also added some splatters in the Peachy Keen as well as in the No Yoking. I then added a simple grey patterned paper behind my photo and placed a blue frame from the Cocoa Vanilla Life is Beautiful ephemera pack over the photo.

fullsizerender-40

I sprinkled around the sequins from the 2 Cool 4 U sequin mix. I also added a yellow sequin to the centers of each flower. I used a few other pieces from the Life is beautiful ephemera pack. I even used one of the pieces, the word “Happy” as my tittle.

fullsizerender-41

I added a few butterflies I had punched out as well as the Flutter cork Butterflies around the layout as well.

fullsizerender-42

I also added a stripe Teresa Collins orange and white patterned paper to the sides of the layout. I love how it turned out.

Here is a side by side look.
