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!

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.

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

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!
