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!

Sketch it out Saturday/Sweet photograph

Good morning everyone!! Sarah here this morning to share my 1st layout for Spiegelmom Scraps and I’m excited about it!! I hope your Saturday is going well. Last night was a bit rough, we had some nasty weather come threw, but its bright and sunny this morning!

Ok so back to the layout I made, lol. I love to play with sketches! Sometimes I stick really close to them and then other times it ends up looking completely different then the sketch! And I love the fact that a sketch can jump start your creativity when your a bit stuck. This is the sketch I used for the layout I made today:

I found this layout on Pinterest, like I do a lot of my layouts, but it came from ScrapFriends.comAU, unfortunately there isn’t a link to the site anymore.

I grabbed an older WeR Memory Keepers paper pad from my stash called It Factor and pulled that stripped paper for the background. Then I reached into my DT pack and grabbed the pretty Shimmerz Texturez in The tide that binds and a stencil from my stash. Instead of checkers on my layout I wanted to use circles, I grabbed a little dabber I have and dipped it in to the texturez and started dabbing away at the bottom side of the page. I loved the way it looked so I added some to the top of my layout too.

I grabbed a few papers out of the paper pad and did a bit of layering behind my photo and added a tab that said love from a little bucket I have with lots of random pieces from random collections from the past, sitting on my desk. I wanted some flowers in on this layout, so I grabbed a pack of flowers that went with an older Maggie Holmes collection and popped one to the left side of my layout along with a cute little sticker from a Dear Lizzy collection. I had 2 collections of sequins that went perfect with this layout, the colors were a perfect match!! Gotta love Emojis and Jaded Hearts! Both collections are so beautiful and added the bling factor that I was wanting. Side note, lol, But I know how Traci Claiborne from the Scrap Gals is always talking about how they don’t like to splatter glimmer mist or other mists cause it cant be exact or might mess the layout up, Sequins are a perfect alternate to that!! I think at least lol, different sizes and you can place them where you want, without having to worry about messing anything up!

I added my title off to the right of my picture, those cute acetate words from Pink fresh studio and another leaf from the Maggie Holmes die cut pack. Then I moved to the top of my layout and started layering bits and pieces from the Pink Paislee Cest La Vie ephemera pack and a few more bits from the Maggie Homles ephemers pack. I added a flair button from an old Hip Kit kit and then went to adding more of those beautiful sequins!

I really hope you enjoyed this layout and would love to see you play along with the sketches and your pretty Spiegelmom Scraps stash too! Make sure to tag us on Instagram so we can see your creations!!

Scrappy Friday – A Home Decor

Hello There,

So happy to meet you there for my very first Scrappy Friday!

As you probably know, the May Theme at Spiegelmom Scraps is Flowers….

It made me immediately think about a Home Decor box I had bought just a few days ago, containing 3 wooden flowers to decorate and hang upon a wall.

Here is it :

Here is a process slideshow:

For this project, I used the following Spiegelmom Scraps products:

Doilies, Gone with the Wind Sequins to match my papers ( a mixture of Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams and Dear Lizzy Lovely Day Collections), heart-shaped  and star-shaped cork confettis.


Here are some Sneak Peeks :

Can’t wait to share my next Scrappy Friday with you!

Fuse It Fun Day-Little Prince

Hello everyone! I am so excited to be here, especially on such a fun weekend! National Scrapbook Day is always so much fun! Have you hopped over to Instagram to check out all of the fun challenges the Sparklers have for you? My challenge is Star Shine- make stars shine on your layout! And that is exactly what I did! Here is my Star Shine layout, the gorgeous Gold Stardust Sequins make this challenge super easy! I also added some amazing Cork Confetti Stars from some shiny gold thread!

@dearlizzy @shimelle @cocoavanillastudio @spiegelmomscraps #corkconfettistars #goldstardustsequins #shimelle #cocoavanillastudio #dearlizzy #spiegelmomscraps

One of my favorite elements of this layout is the shaker bow! I have always thought the Fuse Tool is so cool, but I don’t do Project Life, so I didn’t think I would use it often. Well, I finally got one and I am absolutely loving it! I use it so frequently, I wish I would have grabbed one sooner! In the spirit of loving my Fuse, I am going to be showing you how I use it every Sunday Fun Day with Fuse It Fun Day! For this project I used a bow template and created the little shaker bow! I filled it with those gorgeous Gold Stardust Sequins, and isn’t the result just the most darling little embellishment?@dearlizzy @shimelle @cocoavanillastudio @spiegelmomscraps #corkconfettistars #goldstardustsequins #shimelle #cocoavanillastudio #dearlizzy #spiegelmomscraps

If you wanna see how I made the shaker bow, here is a quick tutorial on how to do that!

Another element I adore are the hanging cork stars from the Wild at Heart frame! Super quick and easy, but so much fun- and, it’s all in the details! Right?!

@dearlizzy @shimelle @cocoavanillastudio @spiegelmomscraps #corkconfettistars #goldstardustsequins #shimelle #cocoavanillastudio #dearlizzy #spiegelmomscraps

I could add those stars to every project! They are fabulous!!

Thanks for joining me for my first blog post, I hope you will check in for Fuse It Fun Day every week!

Project Life Shaker Pockets

Happy Monday!

Today I wanted to share some simple ways to incorporate shaker pockets into pocket scrapbooking spreads. One of my favorite things to do is match products to sequin mixes – they make the perfect embellishments for any spread.

Details and Neutrals 9 x 12 Project Life Spread #spiegelmomscraps #shakerpockets #pocketscrapbooking #projectlife #beckyhiggins #woodveneer #sequins #scrapbooking #papercrafting

I love recording details of the decor in our home. The “Green Acres” mix in the shop pairs perfectly with the neutral tones of this page. I chose to layer the sequins over top of a filler card to create added dimension and confetti. Looking to mix up your next spread? Pick a card with a pretty design and enclose it with some coordinating sequins. I love the effect!

Details and Neutrals 9 x 12 Project Life Spread #spiegelmomscraps #shakerpockets #pocketscrapbooking #projectlife #beckyhiggins #woodveneer #sequins #scrapbooking #papercrafting

I used cards from the Project Life “Everyday Edition” core kit along with a few Shimelle “Little by Little” products.

My second shaker pocket project is a 4 x 12 insert I made. I love layering different sizes of project life page protectors in my albums for dimension.

Really how perfect is that “Pandora’s Ombre” sequin mix?!

Project Life insert #spiegelmomscraps #sequins #shakerpocket #projectlife #papercrafting #scrapbooking #beckyhiggins #dearlizzy #creatwithsms @wordsandpaperscrcaps @spiegelmom_scraps

I chose to use pocket cards with subtle patterns so the sequins would be emphasized. I also like how the embellishment tag in the bottom pocket helps balance out the heavy top.

I hope you were inspired to create some shaker pockets in a unique way! I think I would include a smaller insert with every spread if I had room.

PL March Wk 1 – Live Today

The Monday after losing an hour of sleep is always a hard one.. I’m here today with a colorful spring spread hoping to brighten the first day of your work week!

#spiegelmomscraps #shimmerz #mixedmedia #projectlife #pocketscrapbooking #pocketpages #corkheart #stamping #scrapbooking #papercrafting #amytangerine #felicityjane @felicityjanestudio @spiegelmom_scraps @amytangerine @shimmerzpaints

I really love capturing the details of our home.. I wanted to incorporate some floral prints into this spread of the new flower arrangement in our kitchen. I used several papers from the Felicity Jane “Jane” March kit.. my first one. I made a deal with myself that if I were subscribing to a new kit, I would do a better job of incorporating products that I already have.

I have lots of Shimmerz products from the shop hanging out in my craft room. I chose this shade of green to add a little detail to my spread (like those dots highlighting the “photos I love” journaling card) and create an ombre filler card. I absolutely love using Acri-Tonez with water – it creates a water-color look that still has a matte-like finish! So great!

Do you have some shimmerz Acri-Tonez in colors you struggle to use? Try using it in combination with water for a water-color effect. It really softens the color!

I thought cork products were the perfect balance for this spread – the natural tones worked well with the pastel color palette! I used arrows and hearts from the shop.

I love the layering of sequins (this mix!) on cork – and the staple just adds some whimsy! Fun fact, I keep forgetting to order tiny staples for my tiny AC stapler, so those are full sized staples.. HA. Also on my page are thickers from Amy Tangerine’s “Finders Keepers” and Dear Lizzy “Saturday” collections.

I really like how the page on the right looks without any pictures, really functioning as a pretty title page. Especially since the left side is so full of color.

Hope you felt inspired today!

Beautiful Moment

 

Hi Folks, Laura here today using a mix of sequins and flair from Accent Scrapbooking.

The majority of the supplies came from my like for ever kit featuring Dear Lizzy.  The patterned paper was screaming out to be fussy cut!
