Make It Yours Monday~ This is The One!

Happy Holidays Everyone! This week is scraplift week of our Guest Designer for the month, and, this month, it’s the AMAZING Missy Whidden!!! Her layouts are always fabulous and the one I chose to take on is no exception! 

I loved all the wonderful textures and layers! To begin my version, I took a piece of white cardstock and 2 different stencils. Using the Shimmerz Dazzlers in Red-iculous, I created the base of my page. After the red Dazzlerz were dry, I brought in a Tim Holtz tree stencil and a green Dazzlerz to add some tress over top of the red textured background. 

While the texture pastes were drying, I began working with my photo. I backed the picture first with a bold red pattern paper and then created a layered back ground of various pattern papers from 6×6 paper pads I had in my Christmas stash. When I had all the layers they way I liked them, I adhered them together and backed the whole piece with some vellum for a soft look. Behind the photo mat piece, I created a fishtail banner from kraft cardstock and tucked it behind the paper cluster. By now, the paste was dry and I adhered the paper/photo cluster to the page with some foam tape. 

My title was added to the bottom right corner of my photo using a mix of tiny tile letters and gorgeous gold glitter Thicker. A star garland sticker under the photo tied that section together nicely! 

I loved the cluster Missy had in the top right, so I took a strip of pattern paper from my photos layers, cut a scallop boarder, and added it to the right corner of my page as well, over top of a mini red doily I had adhered first. A gold glitter bow and some sequins from the new Hustle Bustle mix finished that cluster. I loved the gold glitter of the bow and Thickers, and felt I needed it in one more place, so I replicated the top cluster on the bottom left corner of the page as well.  After that, I added splatters using Shimmerz Bed of Roses and Bamboo Leaf Spritz and more of the gorgeous Hustle Bustle sequins around the page. After trimming off 1/4″ from the sides of my page, I matted the entire layout on a piece of green cardstock and added a doodle boarder to finish my page.

This festive page makes me so happy and really has me eager for Christmas!! I hope you enjoyed my project today and has you inspired to pick up some producst from the shop to give a holiday page a go yourself!!

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…

Make It Yours Monday~ I Love Fall (and You)….

Happy Monday everybody and welcome back for another Make It Your’s Monday! I have a layout for you today that combines both the Girly Glitter AND Sugar Maple sequin mixes for a fresh fall look!

I began my layout with a piece of almond cardstock trimmed down 1/4″ on each side. I inked the edges with a dark brown ink to give it a distressed look and then, added the dark brown pattern paper, after I crumbled it up a bit to give it the look of a fall leaf! I added a strip of amber paper to hide the seam of the woodgrain, and to add more color.

Next, I took my photo and matted it on some gorgeous warm orange cardstock to make it pop. Then, into my fall paper scraps I went to create a layered look behind that. I wanted to give it an almost quilted look, so i used different patterns in each of the corners, including some gold glitter cardstock. For some added texture, I added an 8″ doily behind the entire photo mat. Some fall leaves, that I created with the FREE Spiegelmom Scraps cut file, Lovely Leaves, were tucked into each corner, after I used a Versamark pen and copper embossing powder to give them some details.

My title is to the right of the photo cluster, and I wanted to use a common fall phrase and give it a twist! Using a combination of tiny tile letters and Orange thickers, it reads, I Love Fall & *You* most of all. I love how it fit perfectly in that space and how it came out!! More of the die cut leaves, cut very small!!!, were sprinkled around the title area. I matted the entire layout on a piece of pretty fall plaid pattern paper and then, got to the sequins! The pretty yellows from the Girly Glitter mix as well as the iridescent ivory’s from Sugar Maple mix were just perfect for even more texture, color and sparkle to finish this fun fall leave pile layout!!

I hope you have a crafty Monday and dont forget to stop by the Spiegelmom Scraps shop for some of these amazing sequins as well as the amazing free cut files!! When you do,

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, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRPshui76_U

Thank you so much for joining me today and dont forget to stop by the shop for some of these amazing products!!  And as always,

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

Make it Yours Monday~Love Fall

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.

No automatic alt text available.

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.

Image may contain: shoes

No automatic alt text available.

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!!

No automatic alt text available.

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

Image may contain: text

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,

Make It Yours Monday~Tiny Wonders

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!

Head over to the Spiegelmom Scraps shop to get your hands on some of this amazing sequin mix and….

Make It Yours Monday~ I LOVE…

Good 

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! 

I hope you enjoyed my project today as much as I enjoyed creating it for you! Check out the Spiegelmom Scraps shop for all the fintastic products I used today as well as some other great products available! Be sure to use my coupon code when you do to save 15% off your purchases!!!!  xo
