September Blog Hop | New Sequins!!

@spiegelmomscraps, #spiegelmomscraps #americancrafts #sequins #sequinsmixes #diy #projectlife #create #scrapbooking #scrapbook

Hello and welcome to this month’s Sparklers Design Team sequin release blog hop!  Whew, that was kind of a mouth full!  I’m extra excited this month because DT Sparkler Lisa Kingston had a beautiful vision, and that was to create some sequin mixes inspired by some of her favorite artwork!  So naturally I said, “Go for it!”  I must say, she’s done a fabulous job on these mixes, which are shown below my layout 🙂

Here’s my layout created with some of my favorite American Crafts cardstock, a stunning copper embossed floral paper from an American Crafts collection, Shimelle phrase thickers (hello and lovely), Shimmerz Quit Yer Winen’, and the fabulous new On Pointe sequin mix (only I picked out all the little metallic copper ones!!)  I did a ton of fussy cutting for this, obviously.  I cut out every flower from that stunning coppery embossed paper and it was SSSOOO worth it!  I did some light mixed media work on the background, using the muted purplish Shimmerz Quite Yer Winen‘.  I added some dark purplish tread in a few spots and called it good!  I also used the sketch below by Stuck Sketches?! as my jumping point!!  I love the diagonal design.

Scraplifting Saturday | Jen Schow!!

@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @dearlizzy @americancrafts @pinkpaislee @anytangerine @dearlizzy @prettylittlestudiollc @

Good afternoon everyone, it’s Sarah here today!! As you know were scraplifting the amazing Jen Schow this week! I chose this layout of hers.

@jenschow @spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff, #craftyjenschow #americancrafts #scrapbooking #scraplift #spigelmomscraps

I started by choosing my photos. These are my boys a few years ago fishing with there papa. They had a blast and have loved it ever since! I wanted a lighter background then Jen had chosen, so I went through and found this cloud paper and then dipped into ​my Pretty Little Studio stash and grabbed Lets Go. I loved that the colors went well together and that there were nice pops of yellow.

I pulled out the paper with the diagonal strip and used it as my base for my pictures and journaling cards. I matted my pictures and journaling cards on American Crafts white cardstock. I did this 1st and made sure I had my pics and cards where I wanted them, then matted them onto the diagonal patterned paper.

​I added my journaling to the bottom right jounaling card after playing with my type writer. I know Jen had had journaling on bother her cards, but I just added mine to one. Along with a label sticker and a little punched out circle that said, you are awesome. I also added a flair button up in the center like she did too.

I moved up the right side of the pictures and added a tab, along with a few little labels.

Moving to the top of my layout to add a title like Jen had. I pulled out the last of my feltie clouds. I loved that they went perfect with the cloud paper. I know Jen used them too, But I really just love them! I pulled a white tag with a light blue grid and added it to the top, added a label and a word sticker into the center of that that says, this moment. I added my clouds across the top and started playing with my Ferris Wheel sequins. The sides and shades of blue in these sequins are just fantastic!! One of my favorite right now!! After playing with my pretties for a while, I finished off my layout by adding my title, Lip Rippin’. lol
This month has been a blast for me! I really enjoyed scraplifting all these amazing ladies!! All were so intimidating but oh so fun! I hope you enjoyed my scraplift of Jen!

Shimelle Scaplifting!!!

Hello everyone!! This week we are scraplifting Shimelle and I’m here to share with you what layout of hers I chose to use and my scraplift of it.

Here’s the layout I created! 


I pulled out a past scrapbook kit from The Fairytale club and decided to use it for this scraplift, I thought it went well with my photos that I had decided to use. Now thats the 1st thing I changed about this layout, I used 2 photos instead of one and I know Shimelle likes to scrap her photos in color, but I dont always like doing that. So I decided to use snapchat photos of me and my girls, using a filter that added cute little pink flowers to our heads.


I started with the background, I chose one of the papers that was just black and white and pulled out my watercolors and went to painting the flowers. I cut that down and added it to the bottom of the layout where she had the bold chevron paper. And instead of another patterned paper I pulled out some of the pretty purple washi tape I had got from the Spieglemomscraps shop and did three different lines of it to make the seperation and a bigger pop of color.

I added some layers behind my photos, I didnt add as many layers as Shimelle, I added some of mine in with different embellishments and fussy cut elements.​​​


I moved to the lower right corner of the layout to start the cluster there and decided to use that cute Hi tag instead of journaling. There wasnt much to journal about here really, thats why I chose to use the tag. We have tons of snapchat pics and there just us messing around and having fun. I added in the heart, a documented sticker and a few other pieces and them moved back to the title.

 I knew I wanted my title to be a bit longer like Shimelles is, so I pulled out one of my scripty font alphas and a large cork ampersands from the shop and added my title.

To finish everything off I pulled out my beautiful sequin packs, Ferris Wheel, Steal My Heart and Sparkle Power. I feel like these add everything the layout needs! The teals and blues from Ferris wheel are just beautiful along with the textures on them! And the little gold stars from Steal my heart are a nice pop of gold along with the pretty pink in white! All of them are so gorgeous!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
