Scrapbooking with Karla – Hot Chocolate Weather Layout!

Hello! It’s Karla here today with a fun, snowy layout using the new free cutfiles and two beautiful new sequin mixes –¬†Roadtrips & Sunshine and Dreamland! I have always loved combining blues and pinks for winter and even holiday colour schemes, and since the hat my daughter was wearing was pink, I thought what better reason to add some pink snowflakes and sequins to my layout! Last week I used the sketch (shown below) very closely, but this week I decided to use it more as a starting point for inspiration. I grabbed some Kaisercraft circle diecuts (on sale!!) to cut circular frames and layered my photo on top. I love matting my photo with several layers of coordinating papers, but I do cheat a little and only use an L shape of the patterned paper instead of a whole rectangle to be thrifty ūüėČ

I  always love the stickers that come with the collections, but I never seem to use them enough! This skating polar bear in the Echo Park Hello Winter collection was just too cute to pass up, and I popped him up on foam dots beside the Let It Snow sticker. I sponged pink Distress Oxide ink on the white snowflake diecuts and then embossed them with Emerald Creek Soft Fallen Snow embossing powder, which gives a lovely puffy effect while still showing the pink underneath.

I diecut the hot chocolate title once with the grey and white polkadot paper and then just the cup with another patterned paper from this collection, using my Cricut Explore. I love how the sequins in these two collections could be used for so many occasions, but the colours worked so perfectly with this snowy layout!

Scrapbooking with Karla – Trick or Treat!

Hi! Karla here today with a cute and fun Halloween layout using the Morning Glow, Lisa’s Starry Nights (I’m seriously addicted to these ;0 ) and Peachy Keen. I started off by using a sketch from the October Sketchy Challenge at the Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine blog and grabbed a Carta Bella ‘Haunted’ paper pack and some cute pics of my two littles a few years ago.

I splattered some pretty mists from the Tattered Angels Man Cave Calendar Kit, which includes 4 different mists in a pack. I love the bright lime green! I picked out sequins from each mix that would coordinate with the papers and photos and used Glossy Accents to adhere them.

Scraplifting Kelly Barron with Karla

Hello! It’s Karla here today with a cute baby page, and I’m scraplifting the most awesome Kelly Barron! She’s been our Guest Designer here all month long, and I just love her style!! Here’s the page she designed and you can see my scraplifted layout below. All the info on her pretty page can be found on her blog post HERE.

Scrapbook Layout by Kelly Barron

I’m really trying to get more of Erica’s baby pics into her album, so I grabbed these cute (well I understand if not everyone finds them cute ūüėČ ) pics of her with food on her head. Yup, you know it’s true love when you can watch hours of your baby doing the same thing over and over and never get tired of it, or you see her with food on her head and, well, you just have to take a photo – or three, lol! Erica, who is 5 now, even helped me do the stitching across the corners with the sewing machine. I grabbed some of the new Lisa’s Starry Night and Morning Glow sequin mixes and the Gold Burlap String to coordinate with my page.

The older Echo Park Made From Scratch collection was just right for this page, and you can see how wonderfully the textured vintage Architextures potholder sticker from 7gyspies fits in with it!

I loved the way Kelly used some smaller stickers as part of her title and found some in my stash that would work for me too. I added another of the Architextures mason jar stickers alongside some stickers from the EP collection.

Here’s a close up of the¬†Lisa’s Starry Night and Morning Glow sequin mixes and this lovely Gold Burlap String. Just by pulling specific colours from each one you can see how easy it is to mix and match!

I coloured the sweet little scarecrow digi images from Bugaboo Stamps and added some glittery Stickles before popping them up with foam dots on this pretty Echo Park paper – A Perfect Autumn. It’s one of my fav fall collections this year!

I love the way this little guy is peeking out of the circle! The Thanksgiving sentiment from a Pretty Cute stamps set was perfect for the banner tag.

Creative Cards with Karla – Autumn Blessings!

Hi friends! Karla here with a lovely Fall card ready to give out for Thanksgiving! Here in Canada it falls on this Monday coming. Seriously, I don’t know how all my US friends can wait till November ūüėČ We are having friends and family over on Sunday for a big turkey dinner and I definitely wanted to get some cards ready to give out. Fall is my favourite time of year, and I am really loving the Echo Park ‘A Perfect Autumn’ papers. I grabbed some of the new Peachy Keeny and Morning Glow sequin mixes to add shiny sequiny goodness! Those tiny peach flowers are so adorable!!

I combined the pretty pumpkin digi stamps from Craftin’ Desert Divas, printed on kraft cardstock, with a sentiment stamp from Pretty Cute Stamps and some pretty scrolls from Pink & Main stamped with Distress Oxide Ink. A Spellbinders diecut created a pretty panel for my focal image.

Girls Just Wanna Have Sun

Happy Sunday everyone, Ali here, with a super sunny scraplift! We are devoting the entire week to scraplifting the fabulous Missy Whidden! Now let me tell you, that is a tall order and I was super nervous about this! But I actually really enjoyed it and I love the layout I created!

Here is the layout I chose to scraplift, I absolutely love everything about it! Missy has such a distinctive style, and it is totally her own! I wanted to do it justice, without just copying it completely.

I had these fun selfies of my mom, sister, and me at the pool. So I knew I wanted to use the new awesome echo park collection Summer Dreams. So instead of the large star die cuts, I went with suns! I started with some watercolors to create a background in the color scheme. Then I added the suns and machine stitched around them (which was definitely a task!) and I absolute love the look this creates!

After the background was complete it was so simple to add my photos and some layering behind them. I used one of the stickers from the collection as my title. And of course, the best part, sequins! I mixed one of the mini packs with Orange Blossom  and sprinkled those around. Then I picked out a few of the light blues from the Ferris Wheel mix, just to tie it all together! Those little shells are perfect for summer scrapping, I just want to sprinkle them on everything!! Lastly, I typed my journaling and printed on some vellum. It is one of my favorite things to do, especially with a mixed media background, because I sometimes hate covering up all of that hard work!

As you can see, I tried to make this my own, but the inspiration from Missy definitely shines through!

Here are some close ups so you can see those amazing sequins up close, aren’t they fabulous?

Thanks for joining me for this scraplift week, be sure to come back next Sunday, I will have another Missy lift for you! And as always, save some money on your gorgeous sequins with this coupon code!

 

 

My Girl Baby Layout with Guest Designer Karla

Hey there crafty friends! Karla here today, and I’m super excited to be Guest Designing here today-¬†what an honor! Today, I’m sharing a layout that I made of my youngest daughter, Erica, when she was just a year old. Wow – time flies – she’s now almost 5!

I started off choosing a sketch and layered on papers and stickers from the Echo Park Petticoats and Pinstripes collection by Lori Whitlock. I just love these lovely bright papers, and the pretty sequins from the Pinky Pie, Spring Blooms and Let’s Be Mermaids Sequin Mixes from the SpiegelMom Scraps Shop were the perfect embellishments! I love using a sketch as a starting point, then choosing my photos, papers and embellishments.

These wonderful Cork Chevrons are so awesome for layering! I pulled out some paper ephemera diecuts from a My Mind’s Eye All Things Girl package to add to my layout. I love the vintage feel of these diecuts!

I used the tiny silver stars from the Pinky Pie collection on this pretty crown, which I layered over a sticker from the EP collection pack. I added some handwritten journaling and stamped the date with an Amy Tan date stamp. I love that a lot of the paper packs come with coordinated journaling cards in them. Even if I choose not to use them in a pocket page, they are great to use on a layout!

These sweet little flower sequins in the Pinky Pie Sequin Mix were just perfect to layer on the flower sticker. They are subtle and add a pretty shine! You can see some of the stitching that I added across my page. Erica was very excited to #1 – have another layout of her own baby pics and #2 – help me with the stitching!

You can see my process video here on YouTube or click below:

Here’s a look at the beautiful embellishments I used on my layout, which you can find at the SpiegelMom Scraps Shop:
