Scrappy Saturday-Bath time baby

Good morning everyone and welcome to Scrappy Saturday!!!

This month were having fun with some scrap lifting and I was so excited about this! This week were scrap lifting the great Kat Benjamin! It was so hard for me to choose one layout, I went through and saved a ton, just like with all the others and then went back through and eliminated them as I went, lol, so hard!

Here is the layout of Kats that I finally decided to scrap lift.

And here is my scrap lift of it!

I loved the layout and knew what picture I wanted to use, along with what collection! I still had some of my  Story Time kit left from The Fairytale Club and the colors and the cute little mermaids were just perfect along with the beautiful sea shell sequins!

I went through and chose what papers I was going to use and pulled out one of my planner dashboards and fussy cut that beautiful little mermaid out.

I arranged all my papers like Kat had arranged hers and then went to pulling out my clear sheets and sewing them down to the long rectangle at the back of my layering and up on my corner. I chose to go with my clear sheets instead of vellum because I wanted to be able to see the patterned paper behind them still after I got the sequins added in.

I left a small space open and poured my sequins in. I used a mix of different sequins, I love that you can mix and match them and they still go so well together! I used some from Black Tie event, Sparkle Power, Sweet Summer Vibes, Bold Stardust and 2 of the min sequin packs, the blue and purple shells. Everything went together so perfectly! I was so happy with it. Kats layout was amazing and I had so much fun playing along and putting my twist on one of her beautiful layouts!

Trendy Tuesday/My girl

 

Good morning everyone!!! I hope your having an amazing 4th of July with your friends and family!! Sarah here this morning with my 1st trendy Tuesday post and as you  have probably heard this weeks theme is emojis!!!

I love emojis, they are just so cute! And my kids know what they are and love to draw them and the oder ones sending me different ones on their phones lol.

I chose to use the Crate paper line, Cute girl for my layout this week. I love all the girly little things you can do with this collection, but with the way I did this layout there wasn’t a lot of room for embellishing.

I went with a quite large emoji for my layout because I knew I wanted to make it itself a shaker pocket. I used one of the cut-files offered from SpiegleMomScraps this month, This is just one of the emojis that there are in the cut-file,But my emoji is how I started my page, other then having my photo already picked out, lol.

  

In my stash I have a bunch of stuff but I have like 3 boxes of clear sheets that were for over head projectors, I dont even know if they use those anymore, lol, but I have a bunch of them. So I cut my emoji out on my Silhouette and placed 2 behind the outer part and started sewing it on my sewing machine. I left a place open big enough for me to pour my Gotta Love Emojis sequin pack is and then finished sewing it up. I placed it on my page where I wanted it to the left because in the picture my daughter was looking in from the right.

After my big smiling emoji was down, I added a few strips of paper to the bottom of my layout and then went to layering papers behind my photo. I put my photo down and pulled out my embellishment pack, along with some of the sticker sheets and started to play a little. I have always loved that little doll from this collection and I thought this was a great layout to use it on! So I added her to the right side of my photo and then layered a few puffy flower stickers and some little hearts. I popped my title under the picture. Then I decided to add a few little banner pieces  and a few hearts to the top left of my layout and a few little word stickers  and more little hearts to the bottom left and was done.

I hope you enjoyed the layout I made today, I loved playing with the emojis and I hope you play along too!! Happy 4th to everyone again!!

Retro Canvas Tutorial with Karla!

Hello friends! Karla here again today to share a tutorial with you, showing you how I created this pretty canvas. Just by following a few easy steps you can quickly create a beautiful canvas for yourself or a gift for someone special! Since our theme this month is ‘Take Us Back June’ I thought this Prima paper doll stamp by Julie Nutting would be perfect, combined with the vintage 7gypsies Architextures papers and Prima armoire tag. I’ve created a little tutorial, so you can see just how easy it is to create a canvas  yourself! @jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @prima @julienutting @canvascorpbrands @7gypsies@modpodge @tatteredangels #mixedmedia #canvas #tutorial #glimmerglam #spiegelmomscraps #sequins #cork #retro #vintage #paperdolls #julienutting #prima #rubons #scrapbook #papercrafting #crafty #modpodge

Step 1- I used a Dollar Store canvas and chose a few pieces of paper – these are from the 7gypsies Architextures paper pad – love <3! I cut and tore them to fit on my canvas.

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @prima @julienutting @canvascorpbrands @7gypsies@modpodge @tatteredangels #mixedmedia #canvas #tutorial #glimmerglam #spiegelmomscraps #sequins #cork #retro #vintage #paperdolls #julienutting #prima #rubons #scrapbook #papercrafting #crafty #modpodge

Step 2 – I painted the edges of my canvas with Tattered Angels High Impact light blue paint, stamped and coloured my Prima doll, paper pieced her clothing and cut out some paper elements (banners) from the 7gypsies paper pad. Ok, how cool are her boots – really?!!

Step 3 – I used Mod Podge to glue on the paper elements and the Prima armoire tag by painting a coat of the Mod Podge, laying on the papers, and painting another coat on top. I glued the doll’s clothing on and used Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam to paint the Julie Nutting paper doll chipboard pieces. The Glimmer Glam gives such a high sheen with pieces of glitter – it’s really neat!

Step 4 – I used a clear gel medium through a Tim Holtz stencil and then added Ranger Distress Glitter on while it was still wet so the glitter stuck to the gel. I also added some very cool 7gypsies Architextures rubons around my canvas to give a vintage, distressed stamped look. I glued on a couple more paper elements – these records came in a Retro paper pack from Michaels!

Step 5 – I added my paper doll, chipboard pieces and SpiegelMom Scraps Chunky Cork Heart – which I painted gold with the Glimmer Glam. I hot glued a black velvet ribbon around the edge of the canvas to cover any staples that might show. Now comes the FUN part!! Digging through all my sequins to see which ones I want to use 🙂 I decided to go with Jaded Hearts, Fairy Garden, Neon Summer, Sparkle Power and Free Spirit sequin mixes! They are all so pretty!!

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @prima @julienutting @canvascorpbrands @7gypsies@modpodge @tatteredangels #mixedmedia #canvas #tutorial #glimmerglam #spiegelmomscraps #sequins #cork #retro #vintage #paperdolls #julienutting #prima #rubons #scrapbook #papercrafting #crafty #modpodge

I used some of the flowers from a couple different mixes to add to the brim of her hat, using Glossy Accents to adhere them. Next, I grabbed some of the beautiful gold sequins in Free Spirit to add around the picture frame. The message inside is an Architextures rubon, and I covered it with Glossy Accents to give it a glassy look.

The pretty flowers from Fairy Garden worked great to add as drawer pulls on the side table.

I tucked a cool camera in with the records and added some sequins to the drawers of the armoire.

I love the way the gold shines on the Chunky Cork Heart! A few more sequin clusters around the canvas give it just a bit more bling!

Creative Cards With Karla – Mermaid Fun!

Hello friends! Karla here today with a pretty card and tag set featuring lots of adorable under the sea and mermaid images – and perfectly coordinated Let’s Be Mermaids and A Mermaid’s Tale sequins!

@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @prettycutestamps @kaisercraft @janedavenport @americancrafts #sequins #mermaids #coloredpencils #underthesea #digitalstamp #greetingcard #gifttag #giftset #borderpunch

I layered on some older Kaisercraft sea themed paper along with a watercolour strip of blue paper for my card front. I used a corner rounder to round the right side corners of the card and paper before attaching.

@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @prettycutestamps @kaisercraft @janedavenport @americancrafts #sequins #mermaids #coloredpencils #underthesea #digitalstamp #greetingcard #gifttag #giftset #borderpunch

These cute Pretty Cute Stamps digital images look great coloured up with Jane Davenport Magic Wand colouring pencils. I’ve been grabbing some stamped or printed out images along with coloured pencils and markers to colour while I’m at my daughter’s soccer games!

@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @prettycutestamps @kaisercraft @janedavenport @americancrafts #sequins #mermaids #coloredpencils #underthesea #digitalstamp #greetingcard #gifttag #giftset #borderpunch

I love how well the Let’s Be Mermaids and A Mermaid’s Tale sequins matched! And I love how they give the card dimension and texture. I even used one of the awesome yellow flowers in the Summer Sunset sequin mix to tuck into one of the mermaid’s hair!

Inside, I added another watercolour paper panel printed with a digital sentiment and added a cute little turtle and some more pretty sequins. I’m totally addicted to adding sequins inside my cards!!

@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @prettycutestamps @kaisercraft @janedavenport @americancrafts #sequins #mermaids #coloredpencils #underthesea #digitalstamp #greetingcard #gifttag #giftset #borderpunch

For the matching gift tag I layered some pretty papers and my images again, adding a doily and a button with twine. I used an American Crafts border punch to give my layers on the card and tag some more interest. A bit of Nuvo Crystal Drops along the border highlight the scalloped edge.

@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @prettycutestamps @kaisercraft @janedavenport @americancrafts #sequins #mermaids #coloredpencils #underthesea #digitalstamp #greetingcard #gifttag #giftset #borderpunch

This sweet little gift tag and card set is all ready to give to my daughter’s friend for her upcoming birthday! And what little girl doesn’t like mermaids and sequins?!!

Shaker Pocket Title Page #spiegelmomscraps #createwithsms #shakerpocket #sequins #felicityjane #projectlife #sequins #pocketscrapbooking #scrapbooking #papercrafting @spiegelmom_scraps @felicityjanestudio @wordsandpaperscraps

Shaker Title Page

Good morning!

If you’re reading this then you’ve made it to Wednesday – halfway through the week following a holiday weekend, which is always a struggle for me.

I’ve been having fun lately experimenting with different shaker pockets. I love the layering capabilities! Today I’m sharing a shaker pocket title page made with my trusty fuse tool. Projects like this are much easier if you have a heat proof mat with measurements – so you can get your fusing centered.

Shaker Pocket Title Page #spiegelmomscraps #createwithsms #shakerpocket #sequins #felicityjane #projectlife #sequins #pocketscrapbooking #scrapbooking #papercrafting @spiegelmom_scraps @felicityjanestudio @wordsandpaperscraps

I love adding different sized page protectors in Project Life to make it a little more eclectic. I began by trimming my page protector to a 6×12 size. Working first on the rectangular inside pocket holding the “XOXO” I fused 3 sides, added the thicker, and fused the top. The fact that the title I chose was adhesive helped hold it in place. But if you’re going for a more whimsical look you could just add any cut file (or any ephemera for that matter!) I then added the sequins to the page protector. I chose to use Strawberry Bubblegum – a perfect mix for spring! I think lighter sequins look best when layered over a layout – you could also try these or these. Lastly, I used my mini stapler to attach a white heart feltie and my shaker page was complete! SO easy.

I wanted to keep the layout underneath fairly simple so both would be highlighted and not too busy. I used papers from Felicity Jane Studio and coordinating ephemera. I used a few embellishments from my stash including a white lace doily  and cork heart from the shop.

Notice that little bit of shine underneath my photo? You can brush on some Shimmerz  Paste-eez like this one for a little bit of bling.

I love putting my finished spreads in my album to admire how they turned out! I hope you’re inspired to do a little experimenting with shaker pockets

Yum! Random Products Layout Fun

Recently, SMS DT member Lisa came up with a great idea to utilize some of the often-ignored scrapbook products we hoard in our craft rooms. Lisa compiled a list of these products and each week will randomly select a few to use on a project. GENIUS!

All of this takes place in the private SpiegelMom Scraps Facebook group 15 Minutes 2 Scrap – if you aren’t a member yet, ask to join!

My layout for today was inspired by this list of products: Shimmerz products, Distress products, paper punches, embossing, and mists

#SpiegelMomScraps #scrapbooking #papercrafting #shimmerz #dazzlers #cratepaper #cutegirl #dearlizzy #MaggieHolmes #exclusivesequins @SpiegelMom_Scraps @DearLizzy @maggiehdesign @shimmerzpaints @wordsandpaperscraps

To start, I punched 2.5″ circle punches out of papers from the Crate Paper Cute Girl and Dear Lizzy Saturday collections. I used some Shimmerz Coloringz in Mandarin Mai Tai to splatter some ink drops against a white cardstock background. I also added a few stenciled dots of Shimmerz DazzlersSea U in the Mornin’, and once it dried I adhered the circle punches. I did this temporarily so that I could ensure placement of my circles and draw lines with a ruler to follow with my sewing machine.

Side note: Only a few short months ago I dreaded using my sewing machine. To anyone feeling this way, just keep on doing it. Pull it out here and there for some little things – it WILL get easier. And don’t be ashamed to use a pencil to help get straight lines!

I used some Distressed ink in Walnut Satin to distress my gift tag so it wouldn’t clash with the white background. I finished off my tag with some gray twine and tucked it and a cute white doily behind my picture. I used a mini clothespin to “hold” my picture in place.

The background dominated this layout so I only needed a few additional embellishments. I scattered some star sequins from the Cute Girl collection and some exclusive SMS A Day in the Woods sequins around my page. Also from Cute Girl is that adorable wood heart embellishment. Oh, and can’t forget that chipboard heart from Maggie Holmes Gather collection and of course a cloud feltie.

Make It Yours Monday

 

Hi everybody, Lisa here with another Make It Yours Monday and I LOVE the layout I have to share with you today!!  I was inspired by the BEAUTIFUL layout I saw on Facebook over the weekend by the talented Beata Valint  (http://myshinystudio.blogspot.hu/2016/08/designer-spotlight-at-scrapbook-expo.html)

I used my brothers scan n cut to cut out the file she shares on her blog. Then, I got to weeding it out!!
DSCN7173

After that was completed, I used some Shimmers Coloringz in Keep Palm and i watered it down to get a really light watercolor as well as some Pretty In Pink coloringz. I used a few other shimmers colors (Giddy About Green, Pink-A-Boo, Meet Me @ Sunset, and Pugnacious Purple) to add hints of color to the cut file.   I also used some Dazzlers in Tutti Frutti to hold down the sequins I added to bring more color and sparkle to the page. The sequins I used were Pinky Pie PinksLets Be MermaidsMoonshine Delight and A Mermaid’s Tale

14141485_10210140203242540_4854997883345811921_n

Then I chose a light teal paper from the Fancy Free paper pad I picked up in the shop and trimmed it down to fit and adhered it on a pink mat and them placed the cut file over top14079798_10210140202922532_1463110331324580575_n

After the cut file was secured (tip, use a fineline bottle for this one!) I matted my photo and used some foam adhesive to pop it up. I added my title to fit around the corner and it fit really nice!
