Earthy Tones & No Title (Oops!)

Good morning, y’all!

I absolutely love sharing my creations online – what a blessing to have such a supportive community of crafters who share in our creative accomplishments! Thank you to everyone who supports myself, my fellow DT members, and SpiegelMom Scraps!

Recently, I’ve run across a little problem. I honestly can’t keep up with the amount of gorgeous product releases from the shop. I truly want to incorporate everything and I just can’t. But I’ll keep trying – and Saturday we’ll have even more products available to us. So stay tuned for that!#spiegelmomscraps #earthy #moodboard #scrapbooking #papercrafting #shimmerzpaints #sequins #exclusivesequins #pinkpaislee #paigetaylorevans @spiegelmom_scraps @paigetaylorevans @pinkpaislee @shimmerzpaintsThis layout came together inspired by the coffee shop where this picture was taken, in downtown Greenville, SC. I got to spend the day with some friends who I hadn’t spent much time lately – so good! Anyway, I was so excited with how the layout came together that I completely forgot to add a title. And didn’t notice until I was saving edited images from Lightroom onto my computer – I realized there was no name to name a folder. Oops!

To begin, I spritzed some Shimmerz Vibez onto a plain olive background. I stamped a few triangles also and once that dried, I began layering my scraps. I included a frame, vellum, and Pink Paislee C’est La Vie ephemera from my stash. I glued and stitched and added my picture matted on white cardstock. #spiegelmomscraps #earthy #moodboard #scrapbooking #papercrafting #shimmerzpaints #sequins #exclusivesequins #pinkpaislee #paigetaylorevans @spiegelmom_scraps @paigetaylorevans @pinkpaislee @shimmerzpaintsOnce I had my layering the way I wanted, I tucked a silver foil doily underneath my picture to finish it off.#spiegelmomscraps #earthy #moodboard #scrapbooking #papercrafting #shimmerzpaints #sequins #exclusivesequins #pinkpaislee #paigetaylorevans @spiegelmom_scraps @paigetaylorevans @pinkpaislee @shimmerzpaintsI stitched a “3” over top of it and added some wood veneer pieces for some additional texture. One of my favorite things to do with sequins is to individually stitch them onto my projects. I love the effect this has when I have the patience to do this! The exclusive sequin mix Evergreen Bough coordinates perfectly with my page! #spiegelmomscraps #earthy #moodboard #scrapbooking #papercrafting #shimmerzpaints #sequins #exclusivesequins #pinkpaislee #paigetaylorevans @spiegelmom_scraps @paigetaylorevans @pinkpaislee @shimmerzpaintsI finished off my project with a few stitched scraps at the top. Sometimes I’m happiest with my projects when I don’t use perfectly matched pieces from collections. This was one of those.

Thanks again for reading! Don’t forget about all the exclusive releases this coming Saturday.

December Daily Days 4-6

Hello friends! Katty here. I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas. I can’t believe this will be my last post this year. Today I am sharing my December Daily Days 4-6. I have made another 6×6 double page spread. Just like my previous spread for days 1-3, days 4-6 were very uneventful so I was able to fit all three days in this double page spread.

I used two matching pieces of patterned paper which I cut down to 6×6. It is a grey patterned paper with small white bows on it. I also used a fuchsia chevron patterned paper, I cut along the chevron and added it to the top and bottom of the spread. My numbers for each day are from Freckled Fawn and I embossed them with white embossing powder. I used  a scallop circle punch and  teal and white stripped patterned paper behind the numbers. I printed some photos in black and white and some in color.

On the left side I decided to use some corrugated red foil letter stickers which have been in my stash for quite a while. I added some rows of sequins on both pages as well. I used the Fuchsia sequins from the Amore mix and the red ones from the Believe in You mix.

I added a red doily and some thin teal foil wash tape from my stash.

fullsizerender-52

I also used the Teal Heart Felties and Cork Stars to finish off my page.

I love how it turned out. I’m excited to continue working on my December Daily!

I would like to wish everyone a Happy and Prosperous New Year. See you in 2017!

Thanks so much for stopping by! XOXO -Katty

December Daily- Days 1-3

Hello friends! Katty here. I am extremely behind on my December Daily this year. I’m so glad I was finally able to get started. Today I am sharing Days 1-3. I have made a double 6×6 page spread. Since days 2 and 3 were very uneventful I was able to fit all three days in this double page spread.

I began with two matching pieces of patterned paper which I cut down to 6×6. They are red with white polka dots. For my left side layout I wanted to welcome back our Elf on the Shelf Buddy. I added some teal patterned paper to the bottom half. I also used a fiskars scalloped border punch with American Crafts white textured cardstock and some teal glitter tape to separate the two patterns. I added a lovely White Lace Paper Doily behind my photo of my Elf Buddy which I made round with a circle punch.

fullsizerender-77

I added half circle stickers to the top and bottom of the page and I embellished with Chunky Cork Hearts and white flat back sequins from a retired mix which can also be found in the Happy Dance Mix.

fullsizerender-76

I used white Freckled Fawn puffy alpha stickers to write out my tittle. My numbers for each day are also from Freckled Fawn and I embossed them with white embossing powder.

fullsizerender-78

For the page on the right I used all of the same products. I also added a tag with some Red Bakers twine.

fullsizerender-79

I printed some photos in black and white and some in color. I also added some blear phrase stickers from Recollections on one of the photos and over the patterned paper.

 

I’m really happy with how it turned out. Last years album was way too thick so I’m trying to find ways to slim it down this year and this seemed like a good option since there wasn’t much going on these three days.

Documenting December: Embellishments

Happy Friday!

I wonder if you’re all looking forward to the first weekend of December as much as I am!

You may have noticed yesterday on my blog during our hop that I began my journey into documenting December. I’ve decided that I really want to focus on the tiny details of the month that make it so special. I don’t want to get too caught up in creating during my documenting so I made several embellishments in advance. This is my alternative to foundation pages – I’m not so great at guessing how I want my final pages to look so instead I created some embellishments to add in as I go.

#documentingdecember #decemberdaily #embellishments #DIY #silhouettecameo #freecutfile #spiegelmomscraps #sequins #scrapbooking #papercrafting #decembercrafts #goldfoil #pinkpaislee @spiegelmom_scraps @pinkpaislee @shimmerzpaints

I started by painting a shipping tag a gray color that would coordinate well with the print on that Pink Paislee Yuletide tag. I trimmed down a gorgeous gold foil doily so that it would fit well in between. There are so many doilies in the shop that are perfect for holiday crafting (in fact, I just did a Pinterest search for ideas -so many good ones!) Once my tag was dry, I layered on some snowflake die cuts (download the FREE CUT FILE here), Yuletide ephemera stars, & sequins from the Holly Berries mix. I topped it off with a sticker phrase from Crate Paper.

One thing I’ve found I struggle with in using 6 x 8 albums is that there aren’t pockets for horizontal 3 x 4 in the full size page protectors. I tend to photograph in landscape a majority of the time. In order to include more pictures, I created some 6 x 4 page protectors. You can save a few steps by using any size page protector that has two pockets like this. Be sure to leave margin for punching holes, holes which I forgot to punch, oops! I then use my Fuse tool to seal any edges. So easy!

One trick I like to use for lightening up my details – mixing sequins! In this shaker pocket, I wanted to use some more white to bring out the white snowflake die cuts, so I used one of the NEW sequin mix releases – Holiday Traditions  & added just a pinch of Wedding Bells. I love how it turned out! Try it!

For my last embellishment, I combined Yuletide ephemera with our snowflake diecuts, and a few sequins from the Holly Berries mix. I stitched them together and I was done. It’s amazing how stitching can finish off a project.

I hope this inspired you to make some of your own holiday embellishments!

Kobe by Evi

fullsizerender-7-2

Hello Scrapbook friends!  For this month, we have been playing with sketches each week.  This weeks composition is structured with a circle element in the center with other embellishments. My layout stays close to the sketch this week.  I am scrapping a photo of my Doxie, Kobe, at the dog park recently.  I love taking him there to run around and play.

img_2290

My background pattern paper came from a paper pad from Micheals called Mixed Media.  It it a fabulous collection of distressed, mixed media, collage and stenciled background papers.  Some have speciality featured like gold embossing, glitter details or texture.

img_2291

I started out with white modeling paste and a circle stencil from Dina Wakely.  I then used a weave stencil from Prima with 3D gloss gel and sprinkled brown glitter over it before it dried.  Most people would have stopped there, but I added Black Lava paste through a polka dot stencil randomly around the page.

img_2293

I drew the circles freely to resemble the sketch.  I used a Zig vellum writer with a bold tip.  I then layered my photo with glassine bags from the Spiegelmom Scraps store and a few dollies.   I have the embellishment pack from Maggie Holmes’s Open Book that I layered heavily for the layout.

img_2295

My added detail to the layout are confetti cork stars and sequins from Mocha Mint Dream.  I love the added detail around the circle elements.

Sketchin’ with Megan

Hello SMS fans!! This is Megan and I am back today with another sketch made by Sara for this weeks team up with :et’s Get Sketchy. I had a lot of fun with this sketch. I tried to play outside the box a little bit and took an idea I saw from my fellow design team member, Laura. I loved how she used the sequins to make little boxes to mimic the sketch so I took that idea and made it my own along with the sketch.

This is the sketch that Sara made and below is my take on it:

smssketch2-1footer

I had these 3 cute photos of 2 of my boys when they were younger and we were playing a video game together.

smssketch2-2

I kept this layout very simple and only embellished a little bit with the Hot Right Now sequins, chunky stars and a doily.

smssketch2-3

I used some papers from the Pink Paislee ‘Fancy Free’ collection. I really like the way the look with the sequins I used.

smssketch2-4

The title I made with Shimelle’s ‘Fitzgeral’ teal alpha and We R Memory Keepers ‘Honey I’m Home’ little sticker alpha’s.

smssketch2-5

 

smssketch2-6

I also used some Coloringz Spray Mist by Shimmerz Paints called ‘No Yolking’ and Mint Heidi Shine.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my take on the sketch this week! Tomorrow we will have a new sketch in this fun swap we’re doing this month. Make sure to check out the Let’s Get Sketchy blog and come back here as well to get the new sketch!

Sketchin’ with Crafty Meggy

Hello SpiegelMom Scraps fans!! This is Megan and I am here today to share a layout I made with the sketch that Sara Scraps whipped up for this weeks challenge. I really loved this sketch and thought about doing a couple different things with it. In the end, I was inspired by a recent layout I watched Katty Miranda make for a new YouTube series. She used her Shimmerz Paints Mists to make a cute background and I wanted to do something along the same lines.

Here’s the sketch:

sarascrapssketch

This is the layout I made.

sarascrapssketch1-1footer

I really loved the butterflies on the sketch, but I’m still in the process of setting up my scrap studio. It would’ve been way too much work for me to pull out my Silhouette, so I thought using the sprays would be a fun alternative.

sarascrapssketch1-2

One of my favorite things to do is to use a small glassine bag and fill it with sequins. I used the secret new Holiday Traditions sequin mix (it’s so new and secret that it isn’t in the store yet! 😉 lol).

sarascrapssketch1-3

I really love this cute photo of my middle son eating pudding when he was a toddler. He was a really messy eater! Isn’t it cute for toddlers to be messy eaters?!!

sarascrapssketch1-4

The sprays I used were Before Dawn Vibez, No Yoking Coloringz, and Bamboo Leaf Spritz. I thought these colors matched well with the colors of my sons shirt in the photo. I also used a little bit of Teal Me No Lies Texturez behind the photo.

sarascrapssketch1-5

I like the added texture that this doily gives the title cluster.

sarascrapssketch1-6

I also used the Chunky Stars from the shop to add neutral color to the cluster. I will do my journaling on this ‘Happy Dance’ 3×4 card before I stick it in my layout.

sarascrapssketch1-7

I am also thinking I might also do some hidden journaling and stick it in this cute little glassine bag.

I have a process video for this layout as well so I will be back a bit later to post that. You can keep an eye on my YouTube channel to see that. Thanks for stopping by! I hope you’re having a great scrappy weekend!!
