Scrappy Friday – A Home Decor Giveaway

Hello everyone,

Let’s start June with a Home Decor!

As you probably know, our June theme is a flashback to the 80’s and 90’s…. Thinking back to the eighties from a French point of view is related to an optimistic decade when everything seemed possible and America seemed to be emerging as an example to follow or to be inspired from. America appeared to be the land where your dreams may come true….And I must confess the USA made me dream a lot as a child of the 80’s!

That immediately made me want to use some of my Joli Mess’s cards and project life cards from the Cassie’s capsule. Since I had some spare frames, I decided to use three of them, and to match these cards with the Spiegelmomscraps sequins.

In the first frame, I used a “C’est possible” (It is possible) card, and match it with the Salt of the Earth sequins. For the second frame, the card says ” Ne t’arrête jamais 2 rêver” (Never stop Dreaming). I decorated it with 2 cork stars and the lovely gold stardust sequins.

The third and last frame asks us to “Imagine”, and I matched it with the Just Bleachin’ it sequins as well as cork and felt clouds).This project is very simple and can add a decorating touch in your home in less than no time!

And the good news is…. These frames can be yours! Just leave one comment below before the next Scrappy Friday (June 9th) and I’ll pick a random winner amongst all the comments!

Fingers crossed!

Love from France!

Improvising with mixed media

First let me say, I am super excited to be the April guest designer here at Spiegel Mom Scraps. My name is Tiffani and I love 12×12 scrapbooking. I have been crafting from as early as I can remember, but after going through a very difficult time, I decided it was so important to document life, not only for myself, but also for my three beautiful girls; Harmony (6), Melody (5) and Symphony (2). I want to create memories that they will have to share with their children and so on.

My favorite scrapbooking style has to be mixed media and there are a few artists I absolutely love, Wilna Furstenberg is one of them. I have watched her over the past year and finally purchased her most recent Spring Collection. So I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to take what I learned from her class and products from Spiegel Mom Scrap’s and let my creativity flow.

The picture is of my daughter helping me bake cookies. It is one of our favorite things to do and it was my favorite thing to do with my Nana.

I am all about improvising. You do not need to have to most expensive paints, inks, modeling pastes, etc. to create beautiful mix media layouts. I use the inexpensive acrylic paint from Michael’s and I look for deals and use coupons for the other mixed media supplies. It’s is all about working with what you have, because if you tell yourself you need to have this or that, you are blocking yourself from your own creativity.

I love the Bloom collection from Maggie Holmes, and that is where the flowers are from. The Thickers are from the Dear Lizzy Documentary collection. The pop of yellow just makes me think of spring and happiness. The Pink Lagoon sequins give that extra little touch of color.

I love the wood veneer hearts from Shimelle’s True Stories collection and it was completely coincidental that there were 3. Sometimes you will notice I gather things in three’s, especially hearts, and that is to signify each of my children.

A lot of people find it challenging to use the animals that come in the ephemera packs, but I absolutely love them. It is completely random and that is what makes it fun. You just never know where you will use them and for this layout the black swan from the Bloom collection was perfect!  The & sign and the Beautiful wood veneer are also from Shimelles True Stories collection. This was also my first time using felt on a layout and I love Spiegel Mom’s pink heart felties!! They are so much fun and add that perfect pop of color. The Chunky Cork Hearts are also from Spiegel Mom’s and they just created that perfect balance. The stars are from the April sequins collection and I thought it was fun to add them on the outsides of the word beautiful.

This cut file was included with the spring collection from Wilna’s class. I love how versatile it can be.

I had so much fun making this layout and I hope you enjoyed reading along. Today I challenge you to dig deep into your inner creative self and explore the world of mixed media!!

Now for my two page spread!  I haven’t done a two page layout in like FOREVER and I was definitely missing them.  This month I wanted to mix it up a little bit and do a traditional 12×12 on one side a Project Life style on the other side.  I’m really happy with how it turned out and will probably continue to do more of these.  Here is what it looks like side by side.

And here’s the right side, a 12×12 traditional layout.  Besides my Punxsutawney Kit, I added a few of the cork embellishments from our sold out We Go Together Kit, which was fabulous!!  I think cork is a great accent and works with so many papers and themes.  I love the colors and tones in the Serendipity papers, especially when you mix the contrasting ones together and layers.

And here’s the Project Life side!  I’m using one of the pages in the the Big Variety Pack, Style 3 for this side of my spread.  As you can see, I created a fun sequin shaker pocket at the top right.  To seal the top of that opening, I simply ran a thin line of glue at the top edge and allowed it to dry.  The glue itself does dry clear, but I could still see the glue.  Knowing myself, I’m probably the only one in my family who would notice it!  Nonetheless, I added some washi tape from my stash along the top edge to cover it up.

Abby turned 3 last November and she’s getting to be such a little girl and less baby.  Insert tear here!  We have an absolute blast together on my days off when her sisters are in school. It’s just Mama & Abby, perfect!
