Happy Father’s Day, my crafty friends! Typically I would be sharing a Fuse It Fun Day project with you, but this week I skipped the Fuse and went straight for the glue!
I made a layout all about my Father in law for our theme this month- 80’s and 90’s! This is a throw back to the Hee Haw show, anyone a fan? I really wanted my kids to know the stories their grandpa has to share-and he has SO many fun stories. For years he played with Roy Clark and was a member of the Hee Haw band. My husband has fond memories of watching his dad on TV, how cool is that?
I really wanted that silly donkey from the Hee Haw logo on this layout, which is actually where I spent the majority of my time. After that it was a few musical note die cuts and some fun layers behind the photos. This layout came together pretty quickly, but my favorite part are the new Black Tie Event sequins and cork Chevy Chevrons as accents. I dispersed the sequins throughout the music, as if they were notes themselves. If sequins could sing, I bet they would sound beautiful!! The Chevy Chevrons worked perfectly as corner accents and gave the layout more of the rustic feel I was going for!
I will get that Fuse back out next week, but I hope you enjoyed this Father’s Day layout and those fantastic new sequins! Pop by the store to grab some of your own!
Today I wanted to share some simple ways to incorporate shaker pockets into pocket scrapbooking spreads. One of my favorite things to do is match products to sequin mixes – they make the perfect embellishments for any spread.
I love recording details of the decor in our home. The “Green Acres” mix in the shop pairs perfectly with the neutral tones of this page. I chose to layer the sequins over top of a filler card to create added dimension and confetti. Looking to mix up your next spread? Pick a card with a pretty design and enclose it with some coordinating sequins. I love the effect!
I used cards from the Project Life “Everyday Edition” core kit along with a few Shimelle “Little by Little” products.
My second shaker pocket project is a 4 x 12 insert I made. I love layering different sizes of project life page protectors in my albums for dimension.
Really how perfect is that “Pandora’s Ombre” sequin mix?!
I chose to use pocket cards with subtle patterns so the sequins would be emphasized. I also like how the embellishment tag in the bottom pocket helps balance out the heavy top.
I hope you were inspired to create some shaker pockets in a unique way! I think I would include a smaller insert with every spread if I had room.
Hello lovely ladies of the scrapbooking community. I sat down to scrap and printed nothing but photos of my sister and I during her last trip to Florida. I love my sister so much and wish she lived here with me. But our visits together are always a blast. I printed the photos in black and white in order not to compete with whatever background and direction this layout takes me.
I started with the background from Maggie Holmes Shine collection and used my 12×12 stencil from The Crafters Workshop called Capricious with heavy gel and covered it in glitter that twinkles with gold and pink.
Then I fuzzy cut out the florals from a patterned paper from the Shine collection. I clustered them along the left vertical side of the photo. I then used chipboard elements from Dear Lizzy.
The flair badges are from Accent Scrappbooking that were added on top of my embellishment clusters.
A layout is not complete without sequins from the shop. I used Autumn Joys and Mint Mocha Dream for the last details of this layout. If you would like to make a purchase, use Evi15 at checkout. Thank you for joining me. Till next time…. Evi.
Hello Scrapbook friends! Welcome to the SpiegelMom Scraps blog and its already February. My favorite month of the year because I simply love anything Valentine’s Day. From the colors of pink and red for everything to the heart shaped designed on many products. I have heart eyes for all scrapbook related Valentine products. Today, I am scrapping a recent picture of me with the Valentine leggings from LuLaRoe.
I started with white card stock and layered the black scribbled heart patterned paper from last years Hello Love collection from Crate Paper with a special piece of acetate with pink glittered polka dots. I edged the papers with red card stock and a tiny heart paper.
I used the tags from the Crate Paper collection as well and arranged them staggered for added interest. I used the Rockin Pink Ombre sequin pack with is one of the new releases. I also used two sizes of confetti cork hearts available in the shop for added contrast.
We have swapped product this month with Accent Scrapbook and added two flat back flair buttons to this layout. The pink one reads ‘Happy Moments’ and the yellow one says ‘Funny Moments’.

Hello friends! Welcome back! Sadly, this will be my last post. I have loved being a member of this amazing team and I will continue to use the amazing Spiegelmom Scraps products. Today I am sharing a 12×12 layout. I am using one of this months free cut files. I decided to shrink it down and printed it 5 times.
This cut file reminds me of seashells so it was perfect for a beach photo. I chose to use a photo of my youngest son at the beach when he was younger. I arranged the 5 cut files on a White American Crafts Cardstock and I glued some of them together to create a fun design. I used a few of my Shimmerz Paints Mist to color the cut files. I created a rainbow of colors. I used Coloringz in My Bleeding Heart, Peachy Keen, Mandarin Mai Tai, Don’t Citron Me, and a mix of Well Blue me Down and a Vibez in Jeni B Blue.
I decided to embellish using stickers from the Carta Bella Beach Day Collection and the beautiful Believe in You Sequin Mix. I also added some tangled thread in coordinating colors.
This was a lot of fun to create. I love this cut file.
There is also a process video on my channel if you’d like to watch.

Hello friends! Katty here to share another 12×12 layout with you all. Today I am scrapbooking a photo of my boyfriend and I, I actually started out with another photo but as the layout progressed I decided to switch it out. The original photo was just too dark.
I began with White American Crafts Textured Cardstock as my background. I took one of the beautiful 8″ Chantilly White Lace Doilies and cut in into two parts, one a bit larger than the other. I added fun foam to the center to raise them up and give them some dimension and placed them on opposite sides of my page, the smaller piece on the top left hand side and the bigger piece on the bottom right hand side. I used a purple twine and a mint green Jute and threaded it through the edges of the center of the doily.
I used some of my Shimmerz Paints mists in Peachy Keen, Heidi Ho Blue and Oh Say Can You Sea and with a brush added a few colors behind the doily. I also used the Peachy Keen and colored the center of the doily. I added a few splatters in the center area of the page.
I added two clusters of embellishments from my stash. I also added a few of the Love You Tons Felt Hearts in the clusters. I used an Amy Tangerine Kraft word thicker for my tittle. I scattered around the beautiful Sweet Pea Sequins as well as the Morning Dew Drops.
I placed my photo on top of the doily on the bottom right. I cut my picture in a circle shape to mimic the doily. I then used the Sweet Pea mix as a border around my picture.
I love how it turned out. This was really fun to make. There is a process video on my channel if you’d like to watch.
Thanks so much for stopping by! XOXO -Katty
Hello scrapping friends! Welcome back to the Spiegelmom Scraps blog for your daily inspiration. I am working on a 9×12 layout today in order to have a variety of pages in my PL album. I have so many 9×12 sleeves that I have not used, so I may be working in this format for awhile.
I recently attended my fiancé’s best friends wedding and it was an amazing experience. This wedding was over the top in every way. In order to keep the invitation and this photo booth pictures in tact. I thought a scrapbook layout would be perfect.
I started with my Capricious stencil from The Crafter Workshop and Heidi Swapp metallic paste in gold. I added navy Color Shine splatters for contrast. I did my journaling on the extra card that indicating the reception address and added gold ribbon like a tag.
For added details I added sequins from Gold Heart Confetii and Sweet Pea packs available in the shop. The love the added gold detail of the hearts and the purple and blue mix of Sweet Pea. If you make a purchase at the shop use code Evi15 for a discount.
