Shake It Sunday with Sarah!

Hello SMS fans!  It’s Sarah on the blog today with my very last Shake It Sunday.  I am so thrilled to have spent more than a year with you all sharing my creative adventures!  Today I am sharing an 8.5×11 layout using a bunch of new summer collections and a ton of goodies from the SMS shop!  Here it is:

I started my layout with a 12×12 piece of American Crafts Textured White Card Stock that I cut down to 8.5×11.  I cut out the new April free cut files from Hip Kit Club on my silhouette and got started.

I used white gesso to prep my card stock for lots of mixed media.  I stared with Shimmerz Coloringz in Pretty In Pink and Heidi Shine in Butter.  I used the packaging technique and gave it a few splatters.  I made an embellishment cluster with a die cut flower from Oh My Heart, a puffy heart from Chasing Dreams and a couple of stickers from the Oasis sticker sheet.  The puffy dark green heart is also from Oh My Heart.

Next, I used Red Tape to adhere my cut file to the paper.  I sewed around the sun with my sewing machine and filled it with some of the gorgeous Pocket Full of Posies sequin mix.  Then I sewed it shut along the cloud edge to seal in the sequins.

I printed my photo on my Instax printer and layered a tag from Chasing Dreams, a Small Glassine Bag and half of a 4″ White Lace Doily behind the picture.  I embellished around the photo with a banner from Lovely Day and a die cut flower from Oh My Heart.

I used some older Thickers called Holly Jolly for my title along with a new acrylic word from Bella Blvd.  I embellished with a die cut flower from Oh My Heart, puffy stickers from Oasis and Cashing Dreams, and some old resin flowers from Dear Lizzy.  I finished the whole thing off with a good splat of Heidi Shine in Gold and a roller phrase stamp from Gather.

I hope you have enjoyed my last Shake It Sunday!  I wish the new SMS Design Team a great creative year!  A huge thank you to shop owner, Jody!  It has been a pure pleasure working with you and your fabulous team!  I can’t wait to cheer you all on in your creative journeys.  You can see the Youtube video for this layout here:

Girls Weekend 8.5×11 Layout with Sarah

Hello SMS fans! It’s Sarah on the blog today with a super fun 8.5×11 layout documenting a girls weekend that I went on.  I grabbed some of my One Canoe Two Hazelwood collection and a bunch of goodies from the SMS shop and got started!  Here is my layout for today:

I started with a 12×12 piece of American Crafts Textured White Card Stock and cut it down to 8.5×11.  I cut a 5×8.5 piece of teal patterned paper from the collection and a 4×8.5 piece of the pink patterned paper.  I tucked the gingham branding strip under the teal section.  I also tucked part of a Chantilly Lace 8″ Doily under the gingham strip.

I filled a Small Glassine Bag with some of the Strawberry Bubblegum Sequin Mix and sewed it shut with my sewing machine.  I used my EZ Runner Grand to adhere it to the back 4×4 photo and popped it up on adhesive dots.

I added ephemera chipboard pieces from Hazelwood and a button from Oasis.  I also grabbed a gold leaf from the Lake Me Away Thicker pack and a gold brad from Happy Place.  I found an old checkered tag from the Gather collection and added it behind my photo with a bit of gold bakers twine from The Twinery.

I also used a few puffy stickers from Hazelwood.  I used the new Oasis Thickers in kraft with gold dots for my title and I stuck the “Weekend” word on from the Take Me Away Thickers.

I used my Maggie Holmes roller phrase stamper to add the sentiment in black Staz On.  I also gave the layout a good splat of Heidi Shine in Gold.  I embellished with enamel dots and Kaistercraft gems.

I hope you have enjoyed my layout for today!  Look for more from me the last Sunday of the month for my last installment of “Shake It Sunday!”

Shine Bright 8.5×11 layout with Sarah!

Hello SMS fans!  It’s Sarah on the blog today with a super fun 8.5×11 layout to share with you!  I was feeling very inspired by the new Rockin’ Pink Ombre Sequin Mix, so I grabbed a bunch of Crate Paper Cute Girl and some goodies from the SMS shop, and got started!  Here it is:

I started with a 12×12 piece of American Crafts Textured White Card Stock and cut it down to 8.5×11.  I also used a piece to cut out a Lightbulb Silhouette Cut File from Hip Kit Club.

I did some packaging technique using some Shimmerz Spritz’s in Cotton Candy and I did a few splatters in Well Blue Me Down.  I also added a few big splatters of Heidi Shine in Gold.

I backed the Lightbulb Cut File with a bit of vellum and filled it with some of the Rockin’ Pink Ombre Sequin Mix.  I also glued a few of the individual sequins from the mix on the outside of the lightbulb for extra sparkle!  I layered a White Lace Paper Doily and a Small Glassine Bag behind my photo, alternating them with layers of patterned paper.  I used my EZ Runner Grand to adhere the layers together.

I cut the ‘sun’ part off of the ‘sunshine’ word Thicker from the Page Evans Take Me Away collection and used it as my title.  I also grabbed some old black and white chipboard Thickers from the Saturday collection from Dear Lizzy.

I added a ton of embellishments and a couple of Hot Pink Heart Felties around my photo.  I included a wood veneer ice cream cone and a few tiny word stickers too!

Finally, I added a few puffy stars, metallic stars and a few enamel dots from my stash.  I typed out my journalling on my WRMK Typewriter and glued it down with some Tombo Mono Aqua Glue.

I hope you have enjoyed my quick and fun layout today!  Look for more from me next week on the blog!

Shake It Sunday with Sarah

Welcome back to another Shake It Sunday!  Today I am sharing a fun 8.5×11 layout featuring some of the gorgeous sequin mixes in the SMS shop.  I got to bust out a ton of new releases for this layout!  It was so much fun!  Here it is:

My daughter and my mother spent spring break visiting relatives in Florida and they came back with a lot of gorgeous pictures for me to scrap!  I opened up new packs of Dear Lizzy Lovely Day, Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams, Shimelle Little By Little, Crate Paper Oasis, and Pinkfresh Studios Dream On.

I started with a 12×12 piece of American Crafts Textured White Card Stock and cut it down to 8.5×11.  I did a little mixed media packaging technique with Shimmerz Creameez in Refresh Mint and I did a few splatters in Piggy Pink.  Then I punched out a bunch of circles from patterned papers in 3″. 2″ and 3/4″ sizes.

I arranged the circles in a diagonal direction and adhered them with my EZ Runner Grand.  I tucked a 4″ Paper Lace Doily and popped my photos up on adhesive foam dots.  I added a Cloudy Days Feltie and adhered it with a couple Tiny Attacher staples.

I filled a Mini Glassine Bag with some of the Strawberry Bubblegum Sequin Mix and sewed it shut with my sewing machine.  I tucked it under on of my pictures.  I added the title and started embellishing.

I stamped the “Hello Beautiful with my Maggie Holmes Gather roller phrase stamper.  I added a bunch of enamel dots and gems from my stash.  I also added two button embellishment and a couple Pinkfresh Studios puffy gold hearts.  Finally, I gave it a good splatter with Heidi Shine in Gold.

I hope you have enjoyed my latest edition of Shake It Sunday!  You can see the YouTube video here:

February Fun 9×12 Layout with Sarah

Hello SMS fans!  It’s Sarah on the blog today and I’m sharing a 9×12 layout documenting February.  I have changed the way I document this year and have also changed format.  I call it  “No Rules, Just Fun!”  No keeping track of week numbers or stressing out about not taking enough pictures every week.  I simply photograph what I want and print my photos when I want.  Here is my last page documenting February of 2017:

I started with a 9×12 piece of patterned paper from Messy Box, I grabbed my Studio Calico kit, Citrus Twist kit and a bunch of goodies from the SMS shop and got crafting!

I filled a Small Glassine Bag with the new Rockin’ Pink Ombre Sequin Mix and sewed it shut with my machine.  I used Red Tape to adhere the “BRRR!” from Elle’s Studio.  I typed out some journalling on my new WRMK Typewriter and added Blustery Day Felties, Perfectly Pink Felties and some Corky Flakes.

I adhered my journalling cards and photographs with my EZ Runner Grand.  I also ran my sewing machine over the felt snowflakes for added texture.  I hand wrote some journalling using my Ali Edwards Fine Line Pen.

I also made a 4×6 insert and used half of a Corky Flake and half of a Blustery Day Feltie.  Here is the obverse:

I hope you have enjoyed my latest project!  Look for more from me the last Sunday of the month for Shake It Sunday!

Butterfly Charm 8.5×11 Layout with Sarah

 

Hello SMS fans!  It’s Sarah on the blog today with another 8.5×11 layout to share with you.  I have been loving doing layouts again, and with all of the new goodies in the SMS shop, I have been feeling very inspired!  Here is my layout for today:

I had been hoarding the beautiful Millie & June collection from Fancy Pants for a long time, and after I saw the amazing new Pandora’s Ombre Sequin Mix,  I knew I had to crack into it!   I started with a 12×12 piece of American Crafts Textured Card Stock.  I cut it down to 8.5×11 and grabbed my Millie & June goodies, a bunch of stuff from the shop, and a pack of Chipboard Butterflies from Creative Embellishments and got started.

I popped my 4×6 photo up on adhesive foam dots and tucked a 4″ White Paper Lace Doily under it.  I then filled a Mini Glassine Bag full of the Pandora’s Sequin Mix and sewed it shut with my sewing machine.  I glued one of the butterflies from Creative Embellishments on top of it and added the “Charm” word embellishment from My Mind’s Eye,

I tucked in bits of ephemera, tags and puffy stickers from Millie & June and adhered them with my EZ Runner Grand.  I added a tiny tassel from Maggie Holmes Gather by winding it onto a mini gold paper clip from Michael’s.  I also added enamel asterisks from Dear Lizzy enamel Thickers, gold sparkle hearts from Crate Paper Cute Girl and puffy dots from Mille & June.

I finished it all off with a generous splattering of Heidi Shine in Gold.  I added the date using my Becky Higgins Roller Date Stamper and Staz On Ink in Black.

I hope you have enjoyed my latest layout!  I sure have been enjoying doing them again!  Look for more from me on the blog again next week.

Shake It Sunday with Sarah!

Shake It Up Scrapbooking

Welcome back to another Shake It Sunday!  The last Sunday of every month I make a fun YouTube video showcasing a quick and creative way to use the gorgeous sequin mixes from the SMS shop!  Today I am sharing a 9×12 February title page!  Here it is:

February Page

I have changed the way I document in 2017 and switched not just my format, but also how I document.  I am no longer doing traditional Project Life.  I call it my “No Rules, Just Fun!” approach!  I simply print pictures and tell the stories that I want to tell during the month.  I have also subscribed to Messy Box and the Studio Calico Documentor Kits.  I have been loving how I can add SMS product into my spreads too!

IMG_1858

Here is my Title Card.  I added the rubber word from Studio Calico and stamped the dates of the month on it.  I used some Maggie Homes Thickers from Gather to add the 2017.  I also gave it a splash of Heidi shine in White.

IMG_1865

I filled the pockets with different elements and textures.  From cork, to wood and rubber, and even a gorgeous flair from Accent Scrapbooking!

IMG_1863

Of course, I filled a couple of pockets with sequin mixes from the shop!  Here, you can see a close up of a gorgeous Blustery Day Feltie!  It adds so much texture!

Splash Pad with Sarah

Pockets Of Your Life

Hello SMS fans!  It’s Sarah on the blog again today and I have a fun PL spread to share with you all!  I am working hard at catching up on my PL from last year and here is a two page spread documenting a trip to the splash pad.  I grabbed my left over summer collections and a bunch of goodies from the shop and got started!  Here is my layout:

Splashpad A

Splashpad B

My leftover summer stash has Dear Lizzy Happy Place, Paige Evans Fancy Free and Amy Tangerine Better Together.  I started with my title card, as it will set the tone for my whole layout.  Here it is:

IMG_1734

I added a 3×6 piece of Medium Glassine bag to a 4×6 piece of patterned paper from Happpy Place.  I sewed it on with my sewing machine.  I added a word Thicker from Amy Tangerine and some glitter Thickers from Dear Lizzy.  I embellished with enamel dots from Doodlebug and a Cork Confetti Star.

IMG_1736

I embellished my 3×4 pictures with gold tiny word stickers from the DIY Shop.  I added a rubber charm from Amy Tangerine to the 3×4 filler card and sewed it on with my sewing machine.  I added a Cork Confetti Star to one of the 3×4 pictures and an Always Aqua Heart Feltie to the 4×6 picture.

IMG_1738

I took some really fun pictures at the splash pad that day, and I actually didn’t embellish all of the photos in spread!  Here, I simply added a tiny word sticker and a stitched boarder to the 3×4 filler card.

IMG_1740

I filled a Small Glassine Bag with some of the gorgeous 2 Cool 4 U Sequin Mix and sewed it shut with gold thread on my sewing machine.  I added an Amy Tangerine die cut tag on top and popped it up with adhesive foam.  I added a few enamel dots and gems, a Cork Confetti Star and a flair from Accent Scrapbooking.  I did a similar technique on a 3×4 filler card and simply added some white word Thickers and enamel dots.

IMG_1744

I cut a 3×4 piece of Medium Glassine Bag and added it to this 3×4 piece of patterned paper from Fancy Free.  I added a word Thicker from Amy Tangerine and a pineapple sticker from Dear Lizzy.  The label is from Pretty Little Studio.

IMG_1746

I was so excited to type my journalling with my new WRMK typewriter!  It works so well!  Here, I added a strip of Always Aqua Heart Felties and sewed it on with my sewing machine.

IMG_1748

Here again, I tried to not over-embellish my photos and let them speak for themselves.  I simply added another flair from Accent Scrapbooking, tiny word stickers and an Always Aqua Heart Feltie that I adhered with my Tiny Attacher.

IMG_1750

I used half of a 4″ Gold Foil Doily to createan embellishment cluster on top of on this 4×6 piece of patterned paper.  I added a camera sticker from Dear Lizzy, a brad and more gold glitter Thickers.

I hope you have enjoyed my latest PL spread!  I am having fun getting caught up!  Look for more from me this month!

Door County 8.5×11 Layout with Sarah

Shake It Up Scrapbooking

Hello SMS fans!  It’s Sarah on the blog today with an 8.5×11 layout using my last two pictures from our Door County vacation!  Here it is:

Door Co

I started with a 12×12 piece of American Crafts Textured White Cardstock from the shop and cut it down to 8.5×11.  I grabbed my final few bits from Maggie Homes Gather and, of course a bunch of goodies from the shop, and got started!

IMG_1632

I started by cutting out this wreath cut file on my Silhouette using more of the American Crafts Textured White Cardstock.  I also cut a circle of vellum using my Silhouette, making sure that it was just the same size as the inside of the wreath.  I filled the vellum with some of the Peachy Sherbet Sequin Mix and a bit of chunky iridescent glitter from my stash.  I sewed the vellum circle shut using gold thread on my sewing machine.

IMG_1626

I used my Evolution Advanced manual die cutting machine to cut out a bunch of leaves using scraps of the patterned papers from Gather and my Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves Die.  I also cut a few out in vellum.  I sewed on a few of them using metallic gold thread on my sewing machine.

IMG_1628

I added my title using some gold letter stickers from Michael’s.  I also added a WRMK Typeset label and some Heidi Shine in Gold.

IMG_1630

I layered my two 3×4 photos on top of a Gold Foil Doily and tucked a Medium White Shipping Tag behind it.  I also added a tassel from Gather on a gold paper clip.  I used my EZ Runner Grand to adhere the photos.

IMG_1624

Finally, I embellished with some gold glitter enamel dots, a few Kaisercraft gems and more of the Peachy Sherbet Sequin Mix.

I hope you enjoyed my latest 8.5×11 layout!  I am really enjoying this size of layout!  See more from me on the blog next week!

Shake It Sunday with Sarah!

Shake It Up Scrapbooking

Happy Sunday, SMS fans!  It’s Sarah on the blog today with a pocket life spread to share with you, and of course a YouTube video to go along with it!  Here is Week 47:

WK 47a

Wk 47b

I used Jen Hadfield Warm and Cozy and a few other fall collections to create this spread!  I grabbed a bunch of goodies from the SMS shop and got started!

IMG_1356

As always, I start with my title card.  It sets the tone for my whole spread.  I cut a 2×6 piece of vellum and sewed it on with my sewing machine.  I added a chipboard left from Warm and Cozy, a table from Fancy Pants Golden Days and the “Adventure” Thicker from Shimelle’s Let’s Go collection.  The ‘WK 47″ Thickers are old Maggie Holmes Styleboard from Hobby Lobby.

IMG_1360

i did my journalling on a 4×6 card this week.  I added a White Paper Lace Doily and a chipboard lead.  I embellished with enamel dots, gems and pearls,

IMG_1363

I made a fun shaker pocket using a Becky Higgins 4×6 Fuse pocket and filled it with Evergreen Bough Sequin Mix and sewed it shut.  I added another copper Thicker from Let’s go directly on top.  I adhere to flip pocket to the outside of my pocket page using American Crafts Red Tape.

IMG_1358

I added on of the new Ever-cork Forest Die Cuts to this 4×6 photo and added a die cut word and more of the Styleboard Thickers.  I also added a Golden Days leaf paper clip to the 3×4 picture on top.  I embellished most of my other 3×4 pics with copper word stickers from Maggie Holmes Gather.

IMG_1350

I added half of a Paper Lace Doily to this 4×6 piece of patterned paper from Warm and Cozy.  I filled a Small Glassine Bag with more of the Evergreen Bough Sequin Mix and sewed it shut with my sewing machine.  I topped it off with another copper Thicker from Let’s Go and a word sticker from Gather.  I used another chipboard leaf and more enamel dots, pearls and gems.

IMG_1352

I used another Ever-cork Forest Die cut and embellished it similarly to the other picture.  Doing similar embellishments across a spread adds to a more cohesive look for your layout.

I hope you have enjoyed my latest pocket life layout!  You can see the YouTube video here:

A Beautiful Mess with Sarah

Pockets Of Your Life

Hello SMS fans!  It’s Sarah on the blog today and I have something new and exciting to share with you all!  With the beginning of the new year I started a new way of documenting and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I have.  It’s my new “No rules, just fun” approach to documenting.  No more keeping track of week numbers and dates.  No more stressing over taking a bunch of pictures every week!  I am simply documenting the activities I want to.  Telling the stories that are important to me and my family.  And using the products that I am most excited about!  Here is my project for today using my new 9×12 album from A Beautiful Mess:

Flat Lay

I used the January 2017 Studio Calico Documentor Kit, and of course a bunch of goodies from the SMS shop!

IMG_1296

I cut an acetate sheet from Illustrated Faith down to 6×8 and punched holes in it so it would fit in my album.  I added the SC exclusive Jasmine Jones rubber “January” and I used some old Dear Lizzy Thickers from my stash to spell out “stories”.  I also added a gorgeous new Corky Flakes.  I used my sewing machine to adhere them.

IMG_1299

My husband and I went on a romantic mini break to Lake City and I printed out 14 pictures from that weekend at 3×3.  I cut a few of the Studio Calico cards from the Documentor Kit down to 3×3 also.  I added my hand written journalling on a piece of exclusive One Little Bird ephemera.

IMG_1304

I added some of the amazing new Strawberry Bubblegum sequin mix to one of the 3×3 pockets and sewed it shut with my sewing machine.

IMG_1302

I used a few tiny word stickers and the XO heart from the December Citrus Twist kit.  I stamped the date with my new Pebbles roller date stamper.  I had to retire my Becky Higgins one as it only went thru 2016!  I also added a few bits of wood veneer from Citrus Twist.

IMG_1306

I added another Corky Flake to a 3×3 pocket!  It is large enough and sturdy enough to just slip into the pocket.  No need to sew it shut!

I hope you have enjoyed my first project using this new form of documenting!  Look for more from me next!

I started with two pieces of American Crafts Textured white Cardstock.  I ran them thru my Silhouette to cut out two identical snowflakes about 6×6.  I then cut the papers down to about 8×8.5 and hole punched them so they would fit in my Doodlebug 8×8 album.

I cut the branded edge off of an 8×8 page protector, filled it with the gorgeous Wedding Bells Sequin Mix and sewed it shut.  I then adhered my papers to each side of the protector and ran it thru my machine again.

I created a paper cluster using ephemera from Crate Paper Snow and Cocoa to tuck behind my 3×4 photo. I also added half of a Mini Glassine Bag.  I embellished with a puffy snowman and some enamel dots and gems.  I tucked in an Always Aqua Heart Felt too!

I used the back side of my page to add the journalling.  I was careful to cover up exactly the areas of the snowflake that the picture covered on the other side.  I typed my journalling on an exclusive Project Life card from the Document December Kit from Hip Kit Club.  I embellished this side in a very similar manner to the other side to ensure continuity.

I hope you have enjoyed my December Daily Day 21!  You can see the video here:

Document December with Sarah

scrapbook-sessions

Hello SMS fans!  It’s Sarah on the blog today and I am sharing my December 13th page in my Document December!  Here it is:

dec-13

I am using a Doodlebug Designs 8×8 album and I am doing a lot of pages not in page protectors!  For this page I used an exclusive paper from Hip Kit Club and a piece of vellum from my stash.   I started by trimming the 12×12 paper down to about 9×8.5.  Then I trimmed the 12×12 vellum down to 9×7.5 and added a line of machine stitching on the top and bottom.  I adhered my Christmas card down with my EZ Runner Grand.  The number 13 is from the DIY Shop.

I used my Evolution Advanced to die cut a few snowflakes using my Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Snowflakes Dies.  I cut them out using American Crafts Textured White Cardstock.  I also cut a few out using an iridescent glitter cardstock.

I tucked a Small Glassine Bag behind my card and inserted two different tags from the Crate Paper Snow and Cocoa collection after I did my journalling on them.  I added a rubber charm embellished paper clip also from Snow and Cocoa.

I added the date using my Becky Higgins Roller Date Stamper and a label from Pretty Little Studio.  I then embellished the whole spread with Kaisercraft gems, Doodlebug enamel dots and sequins from Holiday Traditions, Wedding Bells and Pinky Pie Pinks!

I hope you have enjoyed my layout from my Document December!  Look for more from me on Christmas Day when I will have my latest installment of Shake It Sunday!

All That Glitters with Sarah

shake-it-up-scrapbooking

Happy December, SMS fans!  It’s Sarah on the blog today with a super fun shaker page for my December Daily.  I have been keeping up with my December Daily so far this month and I am excited to show it to you all!  Here it is:

all-that-glitters

I started with three pieces of American Crafts White Textured Cardstock.  I used a View Master cut file from the Silhouette Store and cut it out at 8 inches three times.  I used an extra 8×8 page protector and cut two circles just smaller that 8 inches.  I used my EZ Runner Grand to adhere the page protector circles to the cut files.

I sewed them together with my sewing machine leaving a 3 inch space. I then filled it with Glass Slippers Sequin Mix and then finished sewing it shut.  I sewed the same circles on the third cut file and adhered it to my page.  I did this so you would’t see the back side of the stitching.   Once I had my shaker element in place it was time to start embellishing.

I printed my photo off at about 2×4 and adhered it down with my EZ Runner Grand.  I added to title with some old Thickers from my stash.  I used a foam dot to pop up a die cut snowflake and tucked a Cork Confetti Heat and an Always Aqua Felt Fetti Heart under it.

I added my journalling that I typed out on my antique typewriter.  I embellished with a few enamel dots and Kaisercraft gems.

img_0585

I added a few tree stickers and a phrase sticker from the Crate Paper Snow and Cocoa collection.  I also stamped the date with my Becky Higgins roller date stamper.  This page will go into my December Daily in a full 8×8 page protector.

I hope you have enjoyed my fun shaker page for my December Daily.  Look for more from me next week and don’t forget to stop by on the 15th for a blog hop!  Also,  today is the 13th and part of the SMS 12 Days of Christmas Sale you can use the code 50STAMP to get 50% your purchase of stamps and ink from the shop!
