Make It Yours Monday~ Sweet Everyday Moments

Hello Scrappy Friends and welcome back for another Make It Yours Monday! This week, we are being inspired by our October Guest Designer, Kelly Barron!!  I was drawn to this beautiful, soft layout she created for Citrus Twist.Hello Scrappy Friends and welcome back for another Make It Yours Monday! This week, we are being inspired by our October Guest Designer, Kelly Barron!! 

I began my layout with a piece of white cardstock trimmed down a 1/4″ all around and Tutti Frutti Dazzlerz. I used a stiff bristle brush and the dazzlerz as paint. The bristles of the brush in the texture paste created a great, textured brushstroke look.

While the dazzlerz were drying, I matted my photo on 2 patterned papers, one in a pink and the other in a blue, to tie in the colors in the photo. I added a delicate doily to the back  for some more texture.  I layered strips of pink floral and blue polka dotted papers for the right hand side of the page. 

When the dazzlerz were dry, the photo was adhered with foam tape to the center of the painted area. I chose some floral ephemera and layered them around the bottom of the picture. popping some up on foam tape as well.  I layered a tag and other ephemera pieces under the photo as additional layers, and a Blessed banner to the top left corner. Tiny tile stickers and more ephemera pieces created my title.

I created another cluster in the bottom right corner with the camera and floral pieces and added a tiny word sticker. The Morning Glow sequin mix was the perfect mix to add the right about of sparkle and shine to the page. I matted the entire layout on a light pink cardstock and stitched around the edges. My journaling fit perfectly in the flower clusters under the photo and all that was left was some splatters. I used Razzledazzle Berry and Blue Jeans Vibez  to create them and I was finished!

I also have a process video for todays layout,

Make It Yours Monday~ Jumping with Joy!

Happy Fall Y’all!!!! Thanks for joining me for another Make It Yours Monday here on the SpiegelMom Scraps blog! This months theme is Fall and I. LOVE. Fall. so I’m super excited!!

When I think of fall, the first thing that comes to mind is layers and leaves, so I combined the two for my layout today!  

The base of my page is a vanilla colored cardstock, trimmed down to 11 3/4 x 11 3/4. I splattered 3 different Shimmerz Vibez, Razzledazzle Berry, Sunset Strip & Quit Yer Wine- n .  Next, I chose 3 pattern papers from Echo Parks The Perfect Fall and layered them in thin strips at the top of my page. At the bottom, I went a little wider with the strips. 

My Photos are matted with 2 colors found in the pattern papers, a mustard and teal. I felt they really made the colors of the photos really stand out. The next element I added was the Natural Burlap string. I created the leaves using newest cut files in the shop, Lovely Leaves. After adding some details to them using embossing powder, I attached them to the string along the right side of the page using my tiny attacher and then placed the photos, nestling them into the leaves and each other. Extra leaves were scattered around the page, tucking some under the photos! 

Next, I added my title, Jumping with Joy, spreading it across the top and bottom of the photos using 2 different fonts. I pulled out the Aquarius sequin mix and just LOVE how well it complimented the fall feel of my layout! I sprinkled them around the page to add a pop of color, sparkle and an added texture.

The finishing touches were matting the entire layout on a dark brown cardstock and a doodle boarder. Adding some journaling under the photos and I was done! I love how rich, warm and layered this page feels!!! 

I hope you enjoyed my take on the fall theme and will stop by the shop to check out some of these fun products I used to create it! When you make a purchase, dont forget

Hello my crafty friends and welcome back to another Make it yours Monday! This week, we are being inspired by our fabulous guest designer for the month, Jenn Gagne! As soon as I saw this layout of hers, I knew it was my inspiration piece! I love the circle element as well as the little corner accents to add some interest to the page!!! .

To begin, I took a piece of vanilla cardstock and misted it with Shimmerz Sunset Strip Vibes, Tattered Angels Pumpkin Spice and Chili mists and then took my art rag and rubbed them together to create the slightly ombre/blended background.

I placed my photo next, so it could help aid the placement of all the other elements later on. I added a torn piece of navy blue and gold glitter cardstocks as my photo mat. They complimented the colors in the photo so well!!  I also did my title next, so I could place it exactly where I wanted it, and could work around it with the embellishments later on.

My favorite part was creating the leaves, using one of the new, FREE cut files available in the shop, Lovely Leaves. I used my Brother Scan N Cut and several pieces of fall colored cardstocks to cut out multiples of each leaf design, and then used my versamarker and embossing powders to add details to the large ones and my favorite glue in my fineline bottle and glitter for the smaller leaf details. No automatic alt text available.

I situated the leaves around the page to mimick the circle element of Jenn’s layout, and added some of the newest sequin mixes in the shop, Aquarius and Peachy Keeny, to add even more dimension and texture as well as great pops of color!!

I added a few of the smaller leaves around my photo and my journaling to the left of the title, just under the photo.

To finish my page, I added some splatters to the leaf ring around the page, using the same colors I used for the background, as well as some Navy color shine. I mounted the entire layout on a piece of soft orange cardstock and added a doodle-y boarder around the edge to add some definition.No automatic alt text available.

A few strips of nave and gold cardstocks to the top left and bottom right corner & the date finished off my fall wreath layout.

I got really excited when I saw the finished page!! It’s probably one of my most favorite layouts in a LONG time!! I hope you enjoyed my process and layout today and will stop by the shop for some of these amazing products!!!! When you do,

Happy Monday everyone!!! (groans heard!!) I have a layout for you guys today, that I hope makes your Monday a little better!!! 

For this month, we are being inspired by Art, in any form. So instead of choosing just one piece of art, I was inspired by the Creator! I Love Claude Monet’s soft watery pieces and wonderful color pallet. I spotlighted the new Painted Gardens sequin mix on my layout and just LOVED how the purples and reds played so SO well together with the greens in my photo!

I added some soft watercolor to my background, reminiscent of so many Monet paintings, layered some soft pattern papers behind my photo and added a large doily for some added texture. Then, it was time for the gorgeous sequin mix!! I sprinkled the Painted Gardens sequins and it added the perfect pop of color.


I mounted the entire layout on black cardstock of some added drama and to make the colors stand out even more! I added my title to the bottom right corner with some of the pattern papers from behing the photo and I was done!!

I just love how this layout came together and hope you do too!

HAPPY Labor Day everyone!! I hope you are all enjoying the holiday (here in the US) Today, I have a layout for you inspired by the soft colors and feelings of a few painting I just love to look at! Monet is a strong influence for me with all his beautiful colors and light feeling of his work

I began my layout by mating a pink and black cardstock under a piece of white American Crafts cardstock. I also mated the photo in the same colors, going the opposite way. I used some Shimmerz mists in Night Moves to create some splatters and then, I started on the base of my page.

I used a set of coordinating washi tapes and just put strips down in a pattern that looked good to the eye. I backed my photo with an 8″ doily from the shop to add a softer feel against the straight edges of the washi tape strips. To bring sparkle and shine to the page, I used a couple of different mixes to get just the right colors. Pandora’s Ombre, Rockin Pink Ombre and Morning Dew Drops all brought just the sparkle needed to make the layout shine!

My title added to the top left and bottom right helps keep the eyes moving about the page and really compliment the softer colors with the sparkly black!

Today’s layout was a rather quick and simple page, but all the Spiegelmom Scraps products really helped pull it together and give it just the right touches. Stop by the shop and pick some of these amazing products for yourself and….

Make It Yours Monday~ Secrets…

Hi and Happy Monday!! I am so thrilled to be here today with my take on a layout by the super talented and sweet, Jen Schow!!! Her layouts are nothing short of brilliant and to choose just one was hard!! But, this is the one I chose and hope to have done some justice to it in my version!

For my take on this light and fun layout, I used some of the Sandy Stone Textures and a stencil to create an area to the lower right corner of a piece of American Crafts white cardstock, right around the area I know my photo will end up.  I also splattered some Shimmerz Glorious Day Vibez as well as some Well Blue Me Down Coloringz  I set this askide to dry and started on photo mats.

Just as Jen did on her layout, I used some plain white paper to create the mess base of my layers. I added a doily to the mix to bring in some added texture and then created the tightest mats around my photos with some lilac, blue glitter and pink papers from my scrap box. 

After all my mixed media was dry, I adhered the photo into place and then started having some fun with papers and embellishments!  I chose several papers from the Echo Park Let’s Be Mermaids collection to work with and tore them into strips. I added them to the top and bottom of my page and matted the whole layout on a piece of pink shell paper to keep the pink throughout the layout. 

I used some tiny tile stickers as well as a pink glitter thicker set to create my title. THEN, the SEQUINS!!! The Girly Glitter mix was all the perfect colors for this page, as well as the Intense Aqua, Powerful Pink and Mystical Purple shells!  I sprinkled them in a diagonal from the top left and let them trail off to the  bottom right corner. Some tiny cork stars confetti was the perfect finishing touch, to give the starfish vibe to this beachy mermaid layout!

Sprinkles and Sparkles everywhere! It’s Shimelle, aka Glitter Girl, week at Spiegelmom Scraps!!! I have always loved her style and am so excited to show you my take on one of her layouts this week using some amazing sparkly and incrediable sequins from the shop!!! This is the layout I chose to take as my inspiration and knew the perfect photo as soon as I saw it!!!!

To begin my take, I chose a soft pink pattern paper. I cut down another pattern paper to create 3×4 cards and matted them with a solid pink cardstock. Using the same pink cardstock, I matted my photo and arranged them across the top 1/3 of my page. I added a doily to add some sweetness!!

I added two more 3×4 cards to the bottom of the page and used one of them as my journaling spot and the other to hold a sweet cupcake sticker!! I also added another cupcake and a row of pink heart felties, attaching with my tiny attacher.

I added my title and some more sweet as sugar embellishments and then, the sparkle, or sprinkles!!! I could not do a Shimelle layout without using one of the newest mixes, Glittler Girl!!! I also added some of the new Ferris Wheel to bring some teal to the sequin clusters! I love the pops of color these beautiful sequins added!!! 

The finishing touch was some splatters of Shimmerz Glorious Day Vibez, Oh Say Can U Sea Colorings and Cotton Candy Spritz. I then stitched around the edge of my layout with some grey thread, and stitched on the cards and title as well! I Really REALLY like how this page turned out and hope I did some justice to Shimelle’s!!
