Scrappy Saturday-Fall Nap Time

Good morning everyone!! Sarah here to share with you another fall themed layout using some awesome sequins!

My youngest son is a goof to the max and when it started getting cool here this year, he curled up in a chair with his hat on and a few blankets and took a good long, snuggled up nap. He always loves the cool weather cause he likes to be all curled up in blanket and beanies! lol So that was the photo I decided to scrap. I pulled out some stuff from my stash and started to play.

So, some how I had managed to get a black squigle on the side of my cardstock and instead of tossing it or covering it up, I decided to add it in as part of the layout and added black outlining to the papers on the layout, I was happy with the way it turned out.

I added some different sized squares to the background and popped the picture and its photo mat up, to add a little dimension. I did the background with the larger pieces of paper, because I knew I wasnt going to add a ton to this layout. I started know where I wanted the focus to be and adding the large squares, still allowed me to have multiple colors and patterns showing the way I wanted. After I had the papers and photo where I wanted, I moved on to adding some embellishments.

I started by adding a tag to the left of the photo and then moved to the right of the photo and made a cluster there too. Since my son was napping in this picture, I went through Crate papers, Wonder collection and pulled embellishments that had to do with sleep. I added one that said Dream over to the right with a few other things, including a cork ampersand.

I added my title to the left of the photo and then started on a embellishment cluster. I started out with the little clock and layered in some tags and a cute little heart. I added a few word phrases from a Tim Holtz pack that I had and then pulled out my pretties! I pulled out Be true 2 you sequin mim and Shooting cork stars and went to town!! I placed them across the entire top of the layout and moved down to the bottom, thinning them out to one point at the end.

I absolutely love the way this layout turned out and I hope you enjoyed it too!!

Scrappy Saturday-Fall Fave

Good morning everyone!! Sarah here this morning sharing a new layout with you that I scrap lifted from the lovely Kelly Barron. And this is the layout that I chose to use.For my layout, I decided that I would flip the layout where the picture was over on the left side because in my picture my hubby is looking towards the right.

I pulled out Oakley Avenue, a fall collection from Pretty little Studios. I thought it went perfect with the photo and the pretty Ferris Wheel sequins and the Just Beachin it sequins went perfectly with this collection!

I started my layout by piecing together the layers of paper behind the photo to get that cluster going. I wanted to make sure I had a place to journal, I knew Kelly had used a card with a little camera on it, so I decided to make that a journaling spot on my layout. This was a fall layout, so I thought it would look good with some leaves on it, so I cut out a few with my Silhouette and tucked them in here and there and instead of scallops on the side of the photo layers I use some of the arrow stickers from this collection.

I added two paper strips to the bottom and top like Kelly did and then started to add embellishments there too. I added a little cut apart at the top that says Feeling Fallish, I cut out a few little leafs from one of the papers in the collection and added those tucked in too along with some stickers.

I moved to the bottom of the layout and tucked in a few more leafs and started on one of my favorite parts…. Adding the bling!! I added a mix of the two sequin sets from the bottom left up to the top right and that finished my layout for me!

I hope you enjoyed this layout and remember if your looking to get some more sequins added to your scrappy stash, mention my name in the comment section during check out and get an extra 15% off your order!! Happy Scrapping!!

 

Scrappy Saturday-Being Weird

Good morning ladies!!

I hope your enjoying your weekend so far!! This is our last weekend before the kiddos go back to school and oh man we have a lot going on! We have our oldest sons 1st football game of the season, our youngest is turning one!!! Omg! And making sure everything is together for school Monday. And in there some where I want to try and find some more time to scrap!! lol

But on to the actually layout I came to share with you this morning. Lol This week over on the Spiegelmomscraps blog were scraplifting the fantastic Katty Miranda!

Here is the layout I chose to scraplift of hers:

To start my layout I pulled out a few of my favorite shimmerz and played with the packaging technique on the background. Mine is no where near as bright as Katty’s but I loved the way the colors blended together and went with the Create Paper  Confetti collection that I had decided to use. I know I could have made them stand out more but I decided to not use gesso on the background and keep it a but lighter.

I wanted to scrap this goofy picture of me and my hubby playing with one of the Snapchat filters. I have a lot of these kind of pictures! Me and my kiddos play with it all the time too! lol I layered a few papers behind my picture and then moved on to embellishing.

I wanted to add a lot of embellishments like Katty had, but I didn’t want to use so many flowers since this was just a goofy pic of me and my hubby. I mean dont get me wrong I could have easily used flowers, but I wanted to use some of the pointed circles that were in the collection already. But I did add a few flowers in there too!

After adding the paper embellishments in there and getting them where I wanted them, I stuck them down and started playing with some of the chipboard pieces and other 3D embellishments. And pulled out my cute little Shooting cork stars and layered them in where I wanted them.

I always save the best for last! I pulled out one of my favorite sequin packs right now, Fairy Garden. I love playing with my sequins! lol I added those beautiful little shiny pops of color here and there on my layout and was done.

I loved scraplifting Katty this week, I had fun with it! And I hope your liked my take on Katty’s layout!!

Scrappy Saturday-Bath time baby

Good morning everyone and welcome to Scrappy Saturday!!!

This month were having fun with some scrap lifting and I was so excited about this! This week were scrap lifting the great Kat Benjamin! It was so hard for me to choose one layout, I went through and saved a ton, just like with all the others and then went back through and eliminated them as I went, lol, so hard!

Here is the layout of Kats that I finally decided to scrap lift.

And here is my scrap lift of it!

I loved the layout and knew what picture I wanted to use, along with what collection! I still had some of my  Story Time kit left from The Fairytale Club and the colors and the cute little mermaids were just perfect along with the beautiful sea shell sequins!

I went through and chose what papers I was going to use and pulled out one of my planner dashboards and fussy cut that beautiful little mermaid out.

I arranged all my papers like Kat had arranged hers and then went to pulling out my clear sheets and sewing them down to the long rectangle at the back of my layering and up on my corner. I chose to go with my clear sheets instead of vellum because I wanted to be able to see the patterned paper behind them still after I got the sequins added in.

I left a small space open and poured my sequins in. I used a mix of different sequins, I love that you can mix and match them and they still go so well together! I used some from Black Tie event, Sparkle Power, Sweet Summer Vibes, Bold Stardust and 2 of the min sequin packs, the blue and purple shells. Everything went together so perfectly! I was so happy with it. Kats layout was amazing and I had so much fun playing along and putting my twist on one of her beautiful layouts!

Awesome little brother

Good morning everyone! Sarah here this morning to share with you my take on a layout by Missy Whidden!

Oh my! I was quite intimidated by this one! I love to watch Missy scrap away on her youtube channel, but I definitely cant scrap like her! But I sure did have fun trying! This is the layout of Missy’s that I chose to scrap lift:

 

I went for way different colors on my layout and well I guess theme too. This one is all boy!

I chose to use the Crate Paper, Cool kid and the Deck the Halls sequin pack, it went perfect with this collection!

 I started by choosing the papers I wanted to punch my circles out of, added some glimmer mist with the packaging technique and then placed my circles down on my layout. I added the top and bottom strip too and then sewed them all down.

Then I moved on to embellishing. I added a pennant banner to the left of the photo, where Missy had had an arrow. Then I moved on to the right side where I added the title.

I matted my photo, added layers of vellum, I think Missy used tissue paper, but I didn’t have any, so vellum worked for me! I added a frame to the right of the photo and then added 3D adhesive to the rest for it all to be popped up and then placed it down. I grabbed my thread and made two thread nests and placed them to the upper left of the photo and then down behind my title. Then I grabbed my sequins and had fun playing with them, adding them here and there around my layout.

I hope you enjoyed my layout. I think Missy is amazing and I love her work! Thanks for coming by and checking  out what I did today and I hope you come back and check out all the fun stuff that’s coming in August too!! So much fun to come!!

Trendy Tuesday-You+Me Happy

Good morning everyone!! Sarah here this morning and I have a new layout to share with you all! So this week is stitching week here at Spiegelmomscraps, so of course I’m going to have stitching on my layout, but I’ve also noticed a big trend of layouts with circles on them. So thats what I did this week.

I grabbed Crate papers Hello Love collection, pulled out some of the papers I wanted to play with and of course went with the Fairy Garden sequins from the shop.

I laid my circles where I wanted them across my layout on a diagonal and decided I would cut my picture in one too. I have seen it all over and havent cut my pictures into shapes in forever, so I thought I would go all in and do it with this layout. I stuck my circles down and instead of adding a mat behind my photo, I pulled out my water color paints and painted a black circle that would show from behind the photo. once it dried I  added some 3D foam adhesive to pop it up and stuck it down.

I pulled out my ephemera pack, stickers and some of the chipboard sheet and started to play. I added a few flowers pocking out from behind my picture. Then I went trough and pulled different hearts and some arrows here and there.

I had all my papers down and started stitching around my circles in different colored embroidery thread. I love the texture it added to the layout! I have sewn on a few layouts in the past but this made me want to do it even more!!

After I finished my stitching, I added in all the chipboard and stickers and started adding my oh so pretty sequins. To finish the layout, I grabbed my water colors that I already had out and started splattering in different colors.

I hope you liked this layout and I hope you will join in on the fun this week and stitch on a layout with us!! And make sure to use this code and head over to the Spiegelmomscraps shop and grab you some pretties too!

 

Trendy Tuesday- Celebrate

Good morning everyone!! Sarah here this morning with a new layout with a birthday theme. As you’ve probably noticed, this is birthday week! And were to scrap something we don’t normally scrap birthday wise.

So this week I scrapbooked my 31st birthday. I don’t normally scrap my birthdays, maybe the big years, milestones, but that’s about it. So here it is.

I have had a bunch of this Crate Paper Confetti collection in my stash and decided to use it since there are so many different sequin packs that match it!!

I started off by layering some of the papers and an ephemera piece behind the photo and adding a glittery star and a cute little now. I figured it’s a layout about my birthday, so why not!?

I’m not big on journaling where others can see it,especially when it’s about personal things, so I grabbed those little pockets and adheared it down, grabbed two of the tags from the ephemera pack and did a little journaling, slid them in and started adding a 3d cupcake and a cute little stacked pin.then I saw that cute balloon and decided, why not, it’s too cute!

I added my photo and it’s mats to the right of the little pocket and then moved to the bottom of the layout. I grabbed that chipboard banner and added it. I had those cute tassels in my stash and popped it behind the pinwheel and added that in the middle of the banner.

I wanted something to the far right of my layout, so I added two strips to the side and it brought a little color to my layout.

I broke in to my major stash of speigelmom sequins and started to play! I used three different collection, black tie event, Ferris Wheel, and Girly Glitter. The colors in these matched perfect to this collection and I love the bling that they add to the layout!

Thanks for coming and checking out my layout this week and make sure to check out all the great projects by the rest of the team, there on youtube, Instagram, here and on facebook!!
