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.

12899444_987740201273112_2088861965_o

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.

12919323_987740227939776_1978573418_o

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.

12922306_987740234606442_546241938_o

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.

12914952_987740261273106_5559663_o

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.

12914775_987740251273107_1803741454_o

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.

12903760_987740224606443_268825670_o

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

12903747_987740244606441_940960057_o

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.

spiegelhoff_feb15

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.

side 1

007002

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!

side 2

I hope I’ve inspired you to give Project Life, or partial Project Life, a try!  This feels like a good fit for me and I’ll be sharing more like this in the future!

*** Please be sure to leave us all a comment as you hop today!  We’ll be picking a random winner who will receive their very own Punxsutawney Kit!!!  EEKKK!  So, spread the word and share this hop with your friends!  We’d love to see some new faces.  You can also purchase the kit and anything else the Clique Kits shop for 10% off using my special code JODY10!

Clique Kits Blog Share ~ Masquerade Ball!

@cliquekits @spiegelmomscraps, #cliquekits #blogshare #masqueradeball #OctoberKit #scrapbookkit #papercraft #layout #card #diy

 

Hello everyone!  You should have arrived here from Gia’s blog where I’m sure you totally adored her project!  If you’re joining me here first, you can find the entire line-up on the Clique Kits Blog HERE!

This month’s challenge was based off of this quote 

I am so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers–L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

Isn’t that beautiful! The challenge for this month is create a project about or tell everyone what you’re grateful to live a world where there are Octobers!  In our home, Octobers are filled with kids soccer games, Packers football games on Sundays, warm comfort foots, time with our family and lots of holiday prep!!   All of which I’m very blessed to have in my life!  

Now for today, I created two layouts for this Pep Rally with my Masquerade Ball kit and some of the add-ons from the Clique Kits store.  My extra products outside my kit include the fabulous Basic Grey Second City Feathers {designed by the one and only Kelly Purkey}, Simple Stories Frankie and Friends Enamel Dots,  Jillibean Soup Yam Yellow Beanboard and the Fair Trade Silk Strips of Recycled Sari Cloth.

Here’s my first layout!  I pulled out Hannah’s 4K picture from her first day.  It’s amazing how much she’s changed in only two days!!  One of my favorite elements is the Fair Trade Sari Cloth I used to create a circular flower embellishment to balance out the other two circles on my layout.  I did this by using a white cardstock circle as the base and stapling the Sari Cloth to the center first.  Then, I began twisting the Sari Cloth around in a loose circle, outward from the center while tacking it down with a few random staples with my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher.  It’s a pretty each technique to do actually.  Grab some Sari Strips and try it out!! You can also made some cute handmade flowers for headbands or barrettes using a metal or plastic base and hot glue!!

The other two circles were made with one of the Second City stickers and plain white cardstock circle topped with the fun Jillibean Yam Yellow Beanboard.  I just love this Jillibean alphas!  They totally rock and there a ton of them in one package!!

For my next layout I started with a sheet of yellow textured cardstock from American Crafts and then chose the very bold Second City paper with all those fun houses!!  I pulled a few of our Disney photos from Epcot in March and I just love these photos of our little girls playing these awesome bongos!  I used lots of the fabulous Second City stickers and those funky feathers and the Simple Stories Frankie and Friends enamel dots.  I also used the thin sticker frame and added it right onto Abby’s picture… it really POPS off the page!

These Second City feathers and just fabulous!  You can bend them up and really make them 3 dimensional.  The package contains a variety of sizes in cardstock and vellum ~ Score!!  I also added foam adhesive and popped up a few of the ephemera pieces and stickers.

Stamping with paints!! Krafty Hearts Blog Share Wrap Up

Kraft-y Heart Blog Share

It’s been a fun three days of sharing my new Close To My Heart Projects.  I think I’m sharing my favorite project today, saving the best for last!  Today, I’m sharing how I stamp with paints.  It’s pretty easy actually.  All you need are your stamps (wood mounted, acrylic or cling), a foam brush and some acrylic paints.

I started with the lovely Chantilly paper set and the June SOTM; A Flowering Bunch.  This stamp set is very fitting for this time of year, don’t you think?!  First, I layed out my papers and cardstock with my picture.  I used a 4×4″ Instagram picture of our daughter, Sari.  I just love this dress and matching headband!  I wanted to break up the color with some black and white, but not TOO much.  I added some torn pieces of the black and white script paper from the For Always paper set.  It also seemed to help ‘tell a story’ about this photo with the script writing.  I like to look for things like that to add into my layouts.. just a tip for you there! 

002

Next, I stamped a bunch of floating flowers that lead from the edges of my layout, into my focal point.  I adorned most of the flowers with some CTMH Clear Sparkles and the Chantilly Fabric BadgesThese are very similar to vintage buttons, only they are adhesive backed and ready to adorn your scrapbook page or any other project you have in mind.

003

I love this flowering border stamp, but I didn’t want to stamp it black or color in all the petals and leaves either.  This scrapper has to find ways to create her layouts fast!!  Any workin’ Mamas out there can relate, I’m sure.  So, instead I stamped the border with white acrylic paint.  You can see that I layered different pieces around my photo.  You can go HERE to learn how to create easy layers on your projects.  NOTE: I wash off my stamps right away so the paint doesn’t dry in all the crevices.

004

This lovely stamp set is only available this month!! So, don’t delay and pick one up today.  You can order directly through my website HERE.  The June Stamp Of The Month is $17.95, or only $5 with a $50 order.  That’s a fantastic deal.  Host a party, on-line or in person, and earn FREE products fast!

005

Thank you for spending your precious time with me today.  I hope you’ll stop over at Lynn and Kim’s blogs too.  Their projects are always so inspiring!  Also, remember, leave a comment on each of our blogs for your change to win some fabulous blog candy from our Krafty leader Lynn DardaThat candy is the double-stamp set  “It’s Your Day” and card kit.  It’s easy to win, just visit each of the three blogs listed and leave a comment on each one.  I’d love for you to join my blog by entering your email in the right sidebar, but that is not necessary to win.  Winner will be announced at From My Bungalow on Sunday.  Here’s the prize Lynn is giving away to one lucky winner!

2 Giveaways on the blog hop today!




Happy Fall my scrappy friends!!  Welcome to your forth stop on Memory Works Fall Preview Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from the very sweet & wildly creative CHRISTY MUSACK over at Studio C.  Wasn’t her preview of the new Dear Lizzy 5th & Frolic just beautiful!  I must have that entire collection.. just like her Neapolitan from the last catalog!  Thank you so much Christy.

I’m previewing one of my all time favorite manufacturers, My Minds Eye.  I absolutely fall in love with their papers every time they are released.  Their Lavender line is no exception. 

I used the new Lavendar theme set, layered stickers, and brads, along with a new Fancy Pants Stencil.  I had to add some favorites from my stash as well:  ZVA bling, Stickles, a Jenni Bowin calendar (cut off at the top), my fav burlap string behind the layered the flower sticker, washi tapes, a Studio Calcio Wood Veneer Camera (MME Brad in the middle to create the lens),  Recollections pink flower brads and a few sweet little paper roses.

See the brown, flower shaped chipboard piece behind the photo?  That is the packaging from a Jillibean Soup Corugated Chipboard from a couple seasons ago.  Save that packaging friends!!  UpCycle it and use your creativity to encorporate it into your projects. 

Below is one of the new Fancy Pants Stencils.  I love them!!  I backed it with the pink & white chevron paper.  You also see some Mr. Huey’s ink spots on my layouts.. another must have in my scrapbooking supplies.

You can see the glittery areas on the paper below.  I used my Stickles to highlight that very pretty, pre-printed floral design.  I couldn’t help but give it a little boost since it is next to the bling.  I punched the edges of the pink and white chevron at the corner of my photo with an EK Success edge punch.  This added a much more delicate feel to my layout.


Thank you for joining us today!!  My design team girls have been busy getting ready for today & we SO appreciate you spending some of your day with us!  We appreciate you so much that Memory Works is sponsoring a giveaway to one lucky comment leaver 🙂 on this blog hop.  So, please be sure to leave a comment on each blog you stop by.

I’m sponsoring a giveaway too!  Leave me a comment telling me what your favorite ‘go-to’  embellishment is. I’ll choose a lucky winner to get a $10.00 gift certificate to my Etsy Shop, SpiegelMom Scrap Shop!!  I carry lots of Washi Tapes, Natural & Ivory Burlap String, May Arts ribbon, Mr. Huey’s Spray Inks & Masks, as well as many other paper crafting supplies. 

Next, you’ll hop on to the very talented Jennifer Bidwell Edwardson in her Papercrafting Studio with her creative take on Farmhouse Fair Skies. 

If you get lost along your hopping way, go the Memory Work Blog for a full list of the hostesses and their creative blogs.
