Scrappy Saturday- I love this girl

Hello everyone!!

How excited are you that Christmas is only a few days away!!! My kiddos are so excited! lol Anyways…. This week I’m scraplifting the awesome Missy Whidden!

This is the layout of Missys that I decided to scraplift. I wanted to go a different way since I’ve been on a roll of scrapping circles lol. So I chose a grid. I will say that I did a lose scraplift of this layout lol.

I loved the Birthdays&Balloons sequin mix and Crate papers Cute Girl collection went great with it! I had already picked out my pictures of my niece, shes so pretty, but I swipped her snapchat pics to scrap lol.

I started my layout by pulling out some of my shimmerz that matched the colors in the sequins and in the paper collection and using the packaging technique  around my layout like Missy had.  Once I had the colors where I wanted them and let them dry, I added the machine stitching like she had.

I kept my grid loser then Missy did, but I knew I wanted it to cover more of the page, I was trying not to have so much white space. But after knowing where I wanted my pictures, I started my paper layering in the other two spaces and then behind my photos too.

I went in as I was adding the layers and added some little thread nests for some more texture and because Missy had added them.

After adding little puffy stickers here and there and the thread nests, I moved on to adding all the pretty shinies! Birthdays & Balloons sequin mix has so many colors and the shine on some of them are just different. I’m guessing its because some of them are see threw and some aren’t, but I love the different shines they give!

Thanks so much for checking out this layout, and make sure to check out all the great layouts that all the other Sparklers made too and make sure to check out what Missy has made too!

Scrappy Saturday-Christmas Kitty

Good morning scrappy friends! I hope your weekend has been going good! We have a few Christmas parades to go to this weekend and the kids are so excited for them!

Today Im here to share with you a layout I made using some beautiful Sequins and a collection from Bella Blvd, Holly Jolly Christmas. I used Shabby Chic Christmas Some navy sequins from Puppy dog Tails and Hustle Bustle and these sequin collections went perfectly with the Bella collection I chose to use!

This month were also focusing on using our tools. Well to be honest, I dont have a lot of scrappy tools. I used my scissors a lot, my sewing machine and my punches. So I decided to make a big shaker pocket for this layout. I used an 8.5×11 page protector and filled it with my pretty sequins and sewed it shut. I loved all the colors mixed together and that there was a large amount of them on my layout, the more sequins the better, lol!

 I never start with my sequins, I always save them for last, just because I love to add all the pretty sparkles, but this time I started with my large shaker pocket.

When I had my shaker pocket down, I pulled out papers from Holly Jolly Christmas and started to cut some triangles in different sizes to make into Christmas trees.

When I had the trees cut to the sizes I wanted I added a little adhesive to the back, not a lot because I knew I  wanted to sew threw them. I matted my photo of my kitty under the tree sleeping, with some of the red that I used for some of the trees and popped it up on 3d adhesive and stuck it down.

I sewed through my trees and lifted there sides up a bit to add some dimension and moved to my title. I pulled the word Christmas from the die cut pack from this collection and added it down under the middle of my photo and added kitty in some green alphas. I thought I was done but I saw those cute bows clips and decided I would add a few to the tops of my trees. So I popped them off there clips and added two to my trees and that was it for me!

I love, love ,love these sequin mixes I used! I think Hustle Bustle is one of my favs right now, and all three sequin mixes worked great with this collection! Thanks for stopping by and checking out what I made today and I hope you have a great rest of your weekend!!

Scrappy Saturday-Love this guy

Good morning everyone!! Sarah here this morning to share a new layout with you. Y’all have probably already seen this sketch but thought I’d share it again to show you what I got my inspiration from.

I loved this sketch as soon as I saw it!! I started with a sheet of white cardstock, I lightly drew on a circle and grabbed Aint life Grand from my stash and started to punch out different sized circles.

I laid the circles I punched out around the circle I had drawn on, but wanted more circles, so I grabbed the circle stickers and die cuts from this collection and layered them in with the other circles. When I had them all where I wanted them I ran my page threw my sewing machine.

Once I had my circles stitched down and a few messy circles sewn, I grabbed my photo and added a few paper layers behind it. I messed up the edges some and then popped it all up on 3D foam, added a xoxoxo tab and stuck it down. I grabbed some word stickers from my stash and added them above and below my photo and moved onto adding my sequins!

To finish my layout, I reached into my lovely basket of sequin packets and grabbed out Puppy Dog Tails and Hustle Bustle. The colors were perfect, so I started to add them around my sewn circles.  I loved the shine it added to my layout and the color pops it added to the top of my layout too! I decided to add a navy polkadot paper as a boarder around my whole layout and added a little Heidi Swapp gold color shine splatters and was done!

Thanks so much for checking out my layout and make sure to check out what all the other Sparklers make too!! Head over to the shop and check out all the new sequins too!!

Scrappy Saturday- Panda Boy

Good morning everyone!! Sarah here this morning sharing another layout based on this fun sketch!

I pulled out some Pink Paislee goodies from my stash and a goofy picture of one of my boys.

I loved the circles on the sketch, so the first thing I did on my layout was run my cardstock through my sewing machine with black thread. I sewed on a few messy circles and went to matting my photo.

I already knew what sequins I wanted to use and they went great with the paper collection I chose, so I decided to layer red, which I used a punch on and then added a layer of yellow behind it too. After I put my photo where I wanted it, I pulled out the washi, it was grey with some cute glasses on them and I thought since the picture of my son had cute little glasses that they would go great together! So I added that under the bottom of the layers.

I already knew what sequins I wanted to use, I Solemnly Swear, one of the new collections and they went great with the paper collection I chose, so I decided to layer red, which I used a punch on and then added a layer of yellow behind it too. After I put my photo where I wanted it, I pulled out the washi, it was grey with some cute glasses on them and I thought since the picture of my son had cute little glasses that they would go great together! So I added that under the bottom of the layers.

For my title, I decided to add it in to the sewn on circle to the left of my photo. I grabbed some foam thickers and some little yellow ones from Pretty little studios and named my layout, Panda boy. I added my sequins around that circle too along with some more metallic washi stickers and a flair button. And to finish it all off, I grabbed some of my shimmerz and did a little splattering and that was it!

Scrappy Saturday-My Love

Good morning everyone!! Sarah here this morning to share a new layout that I made scraplifting Rachel Lowel. She had so many great layouts to chose from, but since we had more of a circle theme going this month I chose one of her layouts that had a circle on it too!

Heres the layout of Rachels that I chose to scraplift:

I thought this was a beautiful layout and so sweet. I had the same collection in my stash so I thought I would use it as well. So I grabbed it from my stash and set it to the side. I already had the photos I wanted to use pulled too. Me and my hubby out and about one night.

I chose to make my cut file larger then heres, I wanted it to cover more of the background. So I cut this, to me what looks like a target with little hearts on it and backed it with a light blue cardstock. Then I adheared it to the middle of my layout.

As soon as I got the cut file backed and stuck down, I started layering papers behind my photo strip. I know Rachel chose to use one photo, but I decided to change it a bit and use a photo strip I made on my phone. I layered in papers and even some packaging behind my photo. I kept my photo to the bottom left of the die cut, like Rachel had and started to layer in some stickers.

Rachel had placed her title off to the right hand side of the photo and I followed her lead. I pulled out some of my foam thickers and added my title to the right of my photo. At this point I wanted to embellish a little more so I pulled out my 12×12 chipboard ephemera sheet and added a few hears and a little banner piece that said for you my love.

I grabbed my sticker sheet that goes with this collection and added a few more heart stickers and then went to my sparkalies!

I used a mix of Unicorns&Rainbows and Roadtrips&Sunshine. I thought they mixed well together and matched the colors in this collection so well!! I hope you liked this layout and I hope you come back and see what else all the other ladies make too!!

Scrappy Saturday- Good Vibes

Good morning everyone!! I hope your having an amazing weekend, we’ve had a long weekend here and the kids have been having a blast! Our weather has went from freezing to in the 80’s again lol, our weather cant decided what it wants to do here!

But on to the scrapping and pretties!!

This month were playing with circles and this is the sketch were playing with this week. I love playing with sketches and circles are a fun switch up too!! I have to be honest, I usually stick with squares and rectangles, so its fun to break out of my norm.

I loved this months new sequins and I really wanted to play with the Dream Land mix. I want to play with them all but I dont know what a layout would look like with ALL of them on there lol. Anyways, I went through my scrappy stash and pulled out what I had left over from the Girly and strong kit from The Fairy tale club. The kit had everything but the purple in it, and I hate that I didnt use the purple cause its one of my favorite colors! But all the other colors matched!!! And I was so happy about that!

I started out playing with a little Shimmerz on the background. I used Spritz Cotton Candy, Dazzlerz Sea U in the morning and splattered a little Shimmerz Bumbly Bee on there too! I do have to say that I am loving Bumbly Bee, its amazing! The shimmer to it is fantastic! Anyways, back to it. After I let the background dry, I sewed four circles on the background in black thread and then started the layering.

Usually I wait to put my sequins on last but this time I started with them! I pulled out my sequins and started placing them around my sewn circles. I wanted to play with them so bad and loved the way they sparkled!! After I placed them down, I thought I should probably get some pretty paper and pictures put down. So I pulled out some pictures of me, of course playing with snapchat again,lol.

I pulled out some doilies from my stash and laid them in my sewn circles and started layering behind my photos. The papers were bright and fun and I loved the way it was coming together. I had already used all the embellishments that came with the kit so I had to make my own, so I pulled one paper that had pretty roses on it and another that had lip stick on it and started to fussy cut!

For my title, I pulled out a Dear Lizzy die cut word and added some cotton candy Spritz, then added it onto of my doily. Then tucked in a large lipstick for fun and a pretty flower.

I finished the layering behind the rest of the photos, cut down the white cardstock and added the light blue, blue striped paper to the background and was done.

I hope you play along this week with this sketch and make sure to share on instagram and tag Spieglemom_scraps in it!! We’d love to see what you create!! And remember when your checking out at Spieglemom Scraps, make sure to use code SARAH15 when you check out to get 15% off your purchase!

Scrappy Saturday-This makes my heart happy

Good morning everyone!! Sarah back again this morning with a fun little layout of my little girl and camping last fall. This child’s hair crazy!! lol It rained while we were camping and we played in the rain and her hair curled up into messy little ringlets! So of course I had to capture it!

I had pulled out my Maggie Holmes, Gather collection and my Spieglemomscraps Morning Glow sequin mix, they went together perfectly! I loved the paper I had chose for the background, one because its just so pretty and two, because I don’t use patterned paper much as my background and have been trying to do it more. To tone it down a bit though, I did had a sheet of vellum and then started to build my focus from there.

I wanted my layout to be focused across the center of the layout. I added a white photo mat to my picture, added a doily from Pretty little Studios and placed it in the center of the layout and built out from there. I grabbed one of the cut apart sheets from the collection and cut a few of the pieces down to look like banners. I tucked the darker blue one to the left of my photo and then went through the ephemera pack and pulled some of my fav pieces out, like the cute little acetate bear with the bow, some leaves and a few pieces to layer under my photo too.

I tucked the little bow bear in and added a few leaves and moved to the other side of my photo.

 

On the right side of my photo I tucked in a plaid tag and added one of the pieces I had cut out from the cut apart sheet. I tucked in a few more leaves and added some stickers with sweet little sayings and moved to the bottom of my photo to add a few layers.

Some of the piece I had pulled from the ephemera pack previously, I started to layer in under the bottom of the photo till I was happy with the way they looked, then I added a few more stickers and my beautiful Morning Glow sequin mix to the layout and that finished it off for me!

I hope you enjoyed this layout and I hope you come back to see what all the other Sparklers make!! And make sure to use my code at checkout to receive 15% off your order!!

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!!

And remember if your looking for some pretty shinys to add to your stash, make sure to head to the SpiegleMomscraps store and use my name to get 15% off!!

I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!

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!!

Trendy Tuesday/My girl

 

Good morning everyone!!! I hope your having an amazing 4th of July with your friends and family!! Sarah here this morning with my 1st trendy Tuesday post and as you  have probably heard this weeks theme is emojis!!!

I love emojis, they are just so cute! And my kids know what they are and love to draw them and the oder ones sending me different ones on their phones lol.

I chose to use the Crate paper line, Cute girl for my layout this week. I love all the girly little things you can do with this collection, but with the way I did this layout there wasn’t a lot of room for embellishing.

I went with a quite large emoji for my layout because I knew I wanted to make it itself a shaker pocket. I used one of the cut-files offered from SpiegleMomScraps this month, This is just one of the emojis that there are in the cut-file,But my emoji is how I started my page, other then having my photo already picked out, lol.

  

In my stash I have a bunch of stuff but I have like 3 boxes of clear sheets that were for over head projectors, I dont even know if they use those anymore, lol, but I have a bunch of them. So I cut my emoji out on my Silhouette and placed 2 behind the outer part and started sewing it on my sewing machine. I left a place open big enough for me to pour my Gotta Love Emojis sequin pack is and then finished sewing it up. I placed it on my page where I wanted it to the left because in the picture my daughter was looking in from the right.

After my big smiling emoji was down, I added a few strips of paper to the bottom of my layout and then went to layering papers behind my photo. I put my photo down and pulled out my embellishment pack, along with some of the sticker sheets and started to play a little. I have always loved that little doll from this collection and I thought this was a great layout to use it on! So I added her to the right side of my photo and then layered a few puffy flower stickers and some little hearts. I popped my title under the picture. Then I decided to add a few little banner pieces  and a few hearts to the top left of my layout and a few little word stickers  and more little hearts to the bottom left and was done.

I hope you enjoyed the layout I made today, I loved playing with the emojis and I hope you play along too!! Happy 4th to everyone again!!
