Good morning everyone!! Sarah back again this morning with a fun little layout of my little girl and camping last fall. This child’s hair crazy!! lol It rained while we were camping and we played in the rain and her hair curled up into messy little ringlets! So of course I had to capture it!
I had pulled out my Maggie Holmes, Gather collection and my Spieglemomscraps Morning Glow sequin mix, they went together perfectly! I loved the paper I had chose for the background, one because its just so pretty and two, because I don’t use patterned paper much as my background and have been trying to do it more. To tone it down a bit though, I did had a sheet of vellum and then started to build my focus from there.
I wanted my layout to be focused across the center of the layout. I added a white photo mat to my picture, added a doily from Pretty little Studios and placed it in the center of the layout and built out from there. I grabbed one of the cut apart sheets from the collection and cut a few of the pieces down to look like banners. I tucked the darker blue one to the left of my photo and then went through the ephemera pack and pulled some of my fav pieces out, like the cute little acetate bear with the bow, some leaves and a few pieces to layer under my photo too.
I tucked the little bow bear in and added a few leaves and moved to the other side of my photo.
On the right side of my photo I tucked in a plaid tag and added one of the pieces I had cut out from the cut apart sheet. I tucked in a few more leaves and added some stickers with sweet little sayings and moved to the bottom of my photo to add a few layers.
Some of the piece I had pulled from the ephemera pack previously, I started to layer in under the bottom of the photo till I was happy with the way they looked, then I added a few more stickers and my beautiful Morning Glow sequin mix to the layout and that finished it off for me!

So happy to meet you again on Spiegelmoms Scraps blog!
I’m here today with a card, just like last week, which is a bit unusual for me since I don’t make much cards…..
But I thought this one perfectly fits the Build a Snowman sequins…. and the Maggie Holmes Chasing Dream papers perfectly fit the May Theme.
This time, I didn’t use inks or pastes, just matted different papers together. The sequins give the final sparkling touch. This is what I really love about sequins, they highlight any project you make, giving it the last touch it needs!
Even if I don’t make many cards, I do like making them because, again, it is part of the process of sharing. You create a project, but for someone else, in order to make a surprise. And I like surprising people. Who doesn’t like to receive a happy mail?
This one will fly to England, it is a modest present for my 400th follower on Instagram. This is also what I love about scrapbooking and social media. You can share with people from all over the world on a click! How fantastic! I can’t (and don’t want) to get used to it!
See you next month for a new Scrappy Friday, and this time…. no card!
Have a nice weekend!

Hello everyone! I am so excited to be here, especially on such a fun weekend! National Scrapbook Day is always so much fun! Have you hopped over to Instagram to check out all of the fun challenges the Sparklers have for you? My challenge is Star Shine- make stars shine on your layout! And that is exactly what I did! Here is my Star Shine layout, the gorgeous Gold Stardust Sequins make this challenge super easy! I also added some amazing Cork Confetti Stars from some shiny gold thread!
One of my favorite elements of this layout is the shaker bow! I have always thought the Fuse Tool is so cool, but I don’t do Project Life, so I didn’t think I would use it often. Well, I finally got one and I am absolutely loving it! I use it so frequently, I wish I would have grabbed one sooner! In the spirit of loving my Fuse, I am going to be showing you how I use it every Sunday Fun Day with Fuse It Fun Day! For this project I used a bow template and created the little shaker bow! I filled it with those gorgeous Gold Stardust Sequins, and isn’t the result just the most darling little embellishment?
If you wanna see how I made the shaker bow, here is a quick tutorial on how to do that!
Another element I adore are the hanging cork stars from the Wild at Heart frame! Super quick and easy, but so much fun- and, it’s all in the details! Right?!
I could add those stars to every project! They are fabulous!!
Thanks for joining me for my first blog post, I hope you will check in for Fuse It Fun Day every week!
