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!!

Make It Yours Monday~ I Love Fall (and You)….

Happy Monday everybody and welcome back for another Make It Your’s Monday! I have a layout for you today that combines both the Girly Glitter AND Sugar Maple sequin mixes for a fresh fall look!

I began my layout with a piece of almond cardstock trimmed down 1/4″ on each side. I inked the edges with a dark brown ink to give it a distressed look and then, added the dark brown pattern paper, after I crumbled it up a bit to give it the look of a fall leaf! I added a strip of amber paper to hide the seam of the woodgrain, and to add more color.

Next, I took my photo and matted it on some gorgeous warm orange cardstock to make it pop. Then, into my fall paper scraps I went to create a layered look behind that. I wanted to give it an almost quilted look, so i used different patterns in each of the corners, including some gold glitter cardstock. For some added texture, I added an 8″ doily behind the entire photo mat. Some fall leaves, that I created with the FREE Spiegelmom Scraps cut file, Lovely Leaves, were tucked into each corner, after I used a Versamark pen and copper embossing powder to give them some details.

My title is to the right of the photo cluster, and I wanted to use a common fall phrase and give it a twist! Using a combination of tiny tile letters and Orange thickers, it reads, I Love Fall & *You* most of all. I love how it fit perfectly in that space and how it came out!! More of the die cut leaves, cut very small!!!, were sprinkled around the title area. I matted the entire layout on a piece of pretty fall plaid pattern paper and then, got to the sequins! The pretty yellows from the Girly Glitter mix as well as the iridescent ivory’s from Sugar Maple mix were just perfect for even more texture, color and sparkle to finish this fun fall leave pile layout!!

I hope you have a crafty Monday and dont forget to stop by the Spiegelmom Scraps shop for some of these amazing sequins as well as the amazing free cut files!! When you do,

Scrapbooking with Karla – Scraplifting Jenn Gagne!

Happy Thursday!! Karla back today with a scrappy springtime layout. This week we are scraplifting our awesome Guest Designer Jenn Gagne. Be sure to check out Tuesday’s blog post where she shared an amazing traveler’s notebook project! I’ve decided to use her beautiful Easter layout as inspiration for my scrapbook project today. I just loved the pretty colours and those gorgeous doilies, and I knew this would be a perfect layout to add the On Pointe, Aquarius, Morning Glow and Painted Gardens Sequin Mixes! Here’s a look at Jenn’s layout:

Layout by Jenn Gagne

 

I picked up a lovely PhotoPlay collection over the weekend and I couldn’t wait to use the springtime papers included. I’m really impressed with the PhotoPlay papers I’m seeing! I started off by adding Distress Oxide Inks to my splat mat and spritzing with Tattered Angels Iridescent Gold Mist. I put the white doilies directly onto the inky mist and pulled them through it to add some shimmery watercolour. I used 3 different colours for the doilies and then dried them with a heat gun.

I used the same inky mists to add some watercolours and splats directly to my white cardstock background before laying down the doilies and then adding my photo matted with the pretty PhotoPlay papers.

I stamped some butterflies, words and scrolls on the background with Distress Oxide Inks and then added some flowers, gems and more butterflies popped up with foam dots to give the layout some more dimension. Then, of course, the fun part – adding the sequins!! This just makes the layout come alive!

Emoji Layout with Karla – I Love Your Sweet Face!

Hello friends!! Karla here today with an emoji layout using the awesome Free cutfiles on the blog and the Gotta Love Emoji sequin mix! Our theme this week is Emoji Love, so I definitely wanted to scrap these cute pics of my daughter playing dress up. I added some Cork Confetti Stars and Chunky Hearts to my page as well. If you love these hearts and stars as much as I do, you’re going to want to stock up! They are being discontinued to make room for fun new things coming and won’t be restocked.

I used some Shimelle Starshine papers, Pink Paislee Take Me Away ephemera and little metal clips from my stash and followed along with the sketch from the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine July Sketchy Challenge. I love cutting pieces from doilies and tucking them behind my photos! You can find similar ones in the SMS Store HERE.

Before I print my photos, I save them in the Project Life App as 3×4’s and try to add a bit of journaling on the cards in the app. I find it definitely helps me remember those little moments that I might otherwise forget. Then, I can slip them into pocket pages or make a scrapbook layout with them and my journaling is complete.

After I diecut this sentiment, I left the paper and the diecut letters on the mat and used my Distress Inks and Distress Oxides to sponge colour in an ombre effect before removing them. I stamped the Sweet sentiment from a Your Next Stamp cling stamp and fussy cut around it before gluing it down.

Sketch it out Saturday-Together

Good morning everyone! Sarah here this morning to share with you a new layout made with a 80’s-90’s theme.

So for me, I chose my sketch first to work with:

Like I said before, I have a ton of sketches pinned on Pinterest and this one comes from there to but it originally comes from DesignerDigitals.com

The first thing I thought of with this theme this month was a shirt I had when I was a kid. So I decided to head to my Silhouette and make a new cutfile for my background.

lol, I thought the cutfile fit  quite well with what my old shirt looked like, but I do remember my shirt being black and all the designs were filled in with different neon colors.

I thought the We R Memory Keepers, It Factor, to play with. I liked the neon colors and cool patterns. I backed my cut file and then started the layering behind the photo like it shows in the sketch.

I added a doily behind my photo and then added the teal strip and bright yellow. For my title I grabbed a gold frame, clipped it off and slid it under in center of my photo. I love this old goofy  picture of me and my sister, we were always together and since that was the first thing I thought when I saw this picture, I figured I’d use it as a title. I saw that the sketch had another strip of what looked like washi tape behind the photo, I grabbed my Dear Lizzy washi, it was a light teal with cool little squares on it, again I had a shirt like that when I was younger too, but I slid that washi behind the photo and then started add my pretty sequins and cork butterflies.

I pulled some little ephemera pieces from Pink Paislee-C’est La Vie collection and added the little label and for me I wanted a little more so I added a ticket on top of that. I wanted more embellishing then the sketch showed, So I added a nest of thread behind my cork butterflies then added sequins from Gotta Love Emojis and Wild&Free.

On the sketch it showed something wrapped around the photo, but I didn’t want to add that, So I didn’t. But I did like the look of the sewing around the layout, So I grabbed my sewing Machine and sewed a few wonky lines around my layout, then I decided I would add a little stitching to the bottom of my photo too. The sewing machine stitched so easily threw the cork butterflies and I loved the way it looked. The sequins I added matched this collection perfectly too!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and see what I made with this fun theme this month and I hope you come back to see what else we come up with!
