Make It Yours Monday~ Walking…

Sleigh bell ring, are you listening? Today’s layout will transport you right to a winter wonderland!! Lots of glistening (sequins) and snowflakes are happening on this page!! No automatic alt text available.

I began my layout with a navy cardstock as my base and created a blizzard by splattering some white dylusions mist and Shimmerz Snow day on the background. While the splatters were drying, I matted my photo on some light blue glitter paper and again with some white to make it really stand out. Using my scan n cut, I also cut the snowflakes from the Free Flakey cut file available in the shop.  Image may contain: tree and outdoor

After the snow splatters were dry, I adhered my photo to the layout and added my title right underneath, using some silver thickers and tiny tile letters. THEN, I got to the fun part of the layout, the snowflakes!! I adhered some thread to each of the snowflakes and then strung sequins from The Nice List as well as some beautiful wood grain White Oak sequins onto the them. No automatic alt text available.

I glued the snowflakes down and then wrapped the end of the threads around to the back of my layout. Using tweezers, I flipped each sequin over to lay flat and used Multi Medium-Matte to adhere each on into place. No automatic alt text available.

For just a little more texture and sparkle, I scattered a few loose sequins around the page and that was it! Fairly easy layout but with a BIG impact!!

Make It Yours Monday~Snow Pretty

Who said quick and simple scrapping has to be boring? Today I have a simplistic layout to share with you that has a big impact! Just 2 colors, some cut files, gorgeous sequins and a great photo are all that went into this layout! Image may contain: 1 person, smiling, child

This layout started by using some of the Puttin On The Glitz Paste-eez and a snow stencil. I applied the paste-eez to a full size sheet of white cardstock, but only around the edges.No automatic alt text available.

While that was drying, I trimmed down a soft pink cardstock by 1/2″ all around. I then trimmed another sheet of white cardstock by 1/4″ less than the pink to create a boarder. I stitched these two sheets together using my sewing machine and light pink thread. Image may contain: 1 person, smiling

After I matted my photo with the same pink cardstock I used in the larger layer, I added it to the layout with some foam tape for some dimension. Next, I used the FREE Spiegelmom Scraps Flakey cut file and created my own mini snow storm, adding the die cut snowflakes from the top left corner down to the bottom right. My title went under my photo, using some white puffy alpha’s to keep semi-monochromatic look going. Image may contain: 1 person, child and closeup

No page is complete without some sparkle!! Using the Unicorns & Rainbows, I added a deep pink sequin from the mix to the center of each snowflake. The softer pinks were added around some snowflakes.  To finish up, I added the date and adhered the layout to the cardstock with the texture past.

I am surprised with myself. I usually dont know when to stop, but I love this clean and simple look!! I hope you enjoyed todays project. Check out the shop for the products I used today and so much more. Use LISA15 for 15% off ALL you purchases!! xo

Make It Yours Monday~ Welcome Little One

Hello scrappy friends! Thanks for joining me for another Make It Yours Monday. This month, our theme has been circles and sketches, and this weeks sketch is SO fun and different!!!

To begin my layout, I trimmed down my white cardstock 1/4″ all around. Then, using the packaging technique, applied a light pink Shimmerz to the lower right corner of the page. This created a messy but fun area that my photo will sit in later on. Next, using a dinner plate from my kitchen, I traced 4 circles, making sure to overlap and off set them as a guide for my stitching. I took the page to my sewing machine and stitched over the lines (not very well!!!) using 4 colors of thread (navy, pink, teal and purple) that worked with the colors I’m using on the rest of the page.

After the circles were stitched, I began to work with my photo. I chose to mat my picture with a soft lilac and polka dot paper, then, to make it stand out, a slightly darker purple shade of cardstock. I added some foam tape to the back to make it stand out just a bit more and adhered it to the layout on the bottom right corner, slightly crooked, trying to follow the lines of the circle. 

Instead of circles around the photo, I opted to go with hearts. Using my heart punches in various sized, I punched them from different pieces of pattern papers coordinating with the colors I had in the thread. I arranged them in a curve both above and below the photo, keeping the circle vibe going. To mimic the dotted circles on the sketch, I added some more hearts punched from vellum. 

To bring in some more color and a dose of sparkle, I used the new Unicorns & Rainbows sequin mix, which also inspired my entire color pallet for this page. Going around the circle, I added these beautiful sequins all around the page, as well as by the title, that I added to the inner most circle, again, following the curve. 

To finish my page, I matted the entire layout on a deep purple cardstock and stitched around the edges. A date stamps and extra splatters were the final touch. 

I hope you enjoyed todays layout and will use this sketch as well! When your done, be sure to share it in the Spiegelmom Scraps Facebook group, 15 Minutes to Scrap with Spiegelmom Scraps!!!! AND, be sure to stop by the shop and grab some of the GREAT products used here, and make sure you 

Make It Yours Monday~ He brings us joy…

Hello everyone and welcome back for another Make it Yours Monday. This week, the Sparklers are scraplifting our talented Guest Designer for the month, Rachel Lowe. I just love her style and was excited to take this layout on…

For my take on this layout, I chose to feature a photo of our puppy, Charger, and the Rover paper collection. Using a 4″ strip of pattern paper, I created the top section of my page and used a boarder sticker to seperate the pattern paper and white cardstock I am using as my base. Using Night Moves Coloringz, I did my splattering now, instead of at the end.  Moving to my photo, I chose a subtle pattern paper to mat my photo and using foam tape, added it to the center of my page. 

For the embellishments, I chose some of the stickers from the collection sheet, wood veneers and some word sticker and created a cascade from the left to right of the page. My sparkle and shimmer come from the NEW I Solemnly Swear and The Sorting Hat mixes. I chose to use reds, blues, and yellows to tie in the colors in the pattern paper at the top of the page. 

The finishing touches were to ink the edge of my white cardstock and add the title, He brings us joy, to the right of my photo, before mating the entire layout on a piece of dark brown cardstock. Some more sequins around the title and this page was finished. I LOVE the simplistic but fun feel of this page!!!  Use code Lisa15 to save 15% when you check out the shop for some of these fun products, and give a simple layout a try!

Make it Yours Monday~ Happy Harvest

Happiest Monday my scrappy friends and thanks for joining me for another Make It Yours Monday. This week, the Sparklers Design Team are being inspired by a really fun sketch from Ashley Horton!

Image may contain: text

My take on the circles immediately turned to pumpkins! I found a cut file online that was able to be sized accordingly, based on the sketch. I backed each of the pumpkins with some fun fall papers and adhered them in the same pattern as the sketch to a sheed of brown cardstock.

After the pumpkins were adhered down, I splattered some Egg Noggin Vibez around the page. Then, I brought in my photo, which I popped up with some foam tape. I added a label and tiny word sticker over the top left corner. 

My title went to the bottom left corner of the photo, along with another tiny word sticker. I added some more phrase stickers to some of the pumpkins and then got to add some sparkle with 2 of our newest mixes.  The oranges and navy’s from Puppy Dog Tails and light blue and yellow from The Sorting Hat complimented my layout perfectly!! To finish my page, I mounted the page on a polka dot orange pattern paper and loved the way it finished it off!! 

I hope you enjoyed today’s layout and will check out the shop for the wonderful products I used today. When you do

Make It Yours Monday~Halloween

Happy Monday and welcome to another Make It Yours Monday here on Spiegelmom Scraps! This month we are featuring sketches, and for this sketch, I have a fun Halloween layout to share with you today. But it’s not of my kids or myself. It was our puppy, Charger’s, first Halloween! And, for a puppy layout, what better sequin mix to use the new Puppy Dog Tails

I started this layout with a subtle pattern paper and backed it on a piece of navy cardstock. Each of my 3 photos, which are 3×4, are also matted on the same navy cardstock as the pattern paper, except the one of Charger. I added a piece of torn vellum behind that one to give it a little bit of difference. 

To create the circles, I used my scan n cut, and sized them at 4.5″. Using my T-square ruler, I adhered them to my page and then added the photos on top.  A journaling card, cut the same size as the photos, was placed in the 4th circle after I matted it with navy also.

After the main parts of the layout were down, I brought in the sequins and other embellishments! The Puppy Dog Tales mix was a big part, color wise, for this page. I added them in clusters all around the page and to each of the circles. Some cork starts and chevrons added texture and movement as well. The title went to the bottom of the page, using a large, orange glitter font for the Halloween, and some tiny tile stickers to spell out Chargers First. 

A doodle boarder, including some sketchy stars finished this page and I LOVE how this turned out!! I cant believe how quick and easy it came together and it any page following this sketch will look great! Thanks so much for joining me and give this sketch a go!! When you do, be sure to stop the the facebook group, 15 minutes to scrap with Spiegelmom Scraps, and share it with us!! But first, stop by the shop for some of the fabulous new mixes, including the Puppy Dog Tales mix!!

 

Make It Yours Monday~ Loveliest Smile

Hello lovelies! Thanks for joining me today for another Make It Yours Monday!! Today, I have a layout showing you how to create a page combining 2 sequin mixes. I’m using 2 new mixes, Rolling Rustic and Road Trips & Sunshine, coming to the shop November 1st!!!

I began by spattering my white background with Shimmerz Vibes in Sunset Strip and Blushing Vibe and a Coloringz in Moody Mauve. I used a few other mists from my stash as well to create colorful fall foliage behind a tree cutfile I added on top. Using the same mist colors I added an illusion of fallen leaves on the ground with more splatters. 

Next, using my scan and cut and the FREE Lovely Leaves cutfile from the shop, I created tiny leaves from scraps of cardstock to emphasize the fall feel. A few of them I added to the tree branches and the rest I added along the bottom of the page. My photos were matted on some teal and navy cardstocks and then on a piece of vellum that I tore the edges of. The larger photo was adhered straight to the page and smaller one was popped up on foam tape. I tucked a few more leaves behind the photos.

I added my title to the top right of the layout and then, got to the sparkle! The New Rolling Rustic and Road Trips & Sunshine were a GREAT pair to add to the tree as well as the “leaf piles” at the bottom!! I love how they warmed up the page and brought a pop of color to tree and the page!

Thanks for stopping by and spending a part of your day with me! I hope you enjoyed today’s project and will check out the shop for some of the amazing products! When ya do…
