Best Day Ever by Evi

IMG_9571

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.

IMG_9572

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.

IMG_9573

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.

IMG_9576

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.

Today by Evi

IMG_9157

Hello scrapbook friends! Welcome to the Spiegelmom Scraps blog for today inspiration layout.  I was able to incorporate a few great products from the shop in this layout including some Shimmerz mists, a gold dollie, and A Mermaid’s Tale sequin pack.  The colors in the sequins played off the colors in my great photo of my mother and I during Thanksgiving.

IMG_9158

I started with a beautiful cut file that has multiple 3D flowers on it.  I backed it with a bright blue colored card stock.  The blue leaves pop against my photo.  The painting in the photo my mom and I created to replicate on from Z Gallery.  Its has rich blue colors as well.

IMG_9159

I then took Jeni B Bleu Shimmerz mist and splattered the ink on some of the flowers along with Gold Color Shine.

IMG_9161

I then used a print and cut file from Wilna, that was sitting on my desk.  I layered the pieces over a gold dollie.  The florals in this die cut were a great contrast to the blue and white base i was working with.  I then used ephemera from Open Book by Maggie Holmes to fill in some the space.  I also added a few chip board elements from the Confetti line by Maggie Holmes as well.

IMG_9164

My title was from a phrase thicker pack in my stash along with the two thin blue ribbons I used in opposing corners.  Added more detail to the layout with the addition of purple and blue sequins from The Mermaid’s Tale pack.  Those details finished off my layout.  If you would like to make a purchase at the shop remember to use Evi15 for a discount at checkout.  Thank you for joining me.

Hello Scrapbook friends!  Welcome to the Spiegelmom Scraps blog for daily inspiration from our amazing design team.  Today, I have a Christmas themed layout using star cork pieces, gold dollies and Holly Berry Sequins featured on this layout.

img_8986

I am scrapping a fun photo from Christmas day.  We had the self timer on and everyone had to make a funny face.  I love each and everyone of these funny faces more and more everyday.  I am thankful for my family.  I used scraps of paper from doing my December Daily.

img_8987

Details were added with sequins on the vertical strips of paper, Holly Berry.  I layered a gold dolly behind my photo for more gold details.  I loved the kraft colored tag and thought the star cork pieces would bring more of the kraft color to my layout.

December Daily Days 4-6

Hello friends! Katty here. I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas. I can’t believe this will be my last post this year. Today I am sharing my December Daily Days 4-6. I have made another 6×6 double page spread. Just like my previous spread for days 1-3, days 4-6 were very uneventful so I was able to fit all three days in this double page spread.

I used two matching pieces of patterned paper which I cut down to 6×6. It is a grey patterned paper with small white bows on it. I also used a fuchsia chevron patterned paper, I cut along the chevron and added it to the top and bottom of the spread. My numbers for each day are from Freckled Fawn and I embossed them with white embossing powder. I used  a scallop circle punch and  teal and white stripped patterned paper behind the numbers. I printed some photos in black and white and some in color.

fullsizerender-51

On the left side I decided to use some corrugated red foil letter stickers which have been in my stash for quite a while. I added some rows of sequins on both pages as well. I used the Fuchsia sequins from the Amore mix and the red ones from the Believe in You mix.

fullsizerender-50

I added a red doily and some thin teal foil wash tape from my stash.

fullsizerender-52

I also used the Teal Heart Felties and Cork Stars to finish off my page.

fullsizerender-49

 

I love how it turned out. I’m excited to continue working on my December Daily!

fullsizerender-53

I would like to wish everyone a Happy and Prosperous New Year. See you in 2017!

Thanks so much for stopping by! XOXO -Katty

December Daily- Days 1-3

Hello friends! Katty here. I am extremely behind on my December Daily this year. I’m so glad I was finally able to get started. Today I am sharing Days 1-3. I have made a double 6×6 page spread. Since days 2 and 3 were very uneventful I was able to fit all three days in this double page spread.

I began with two matching pieces of patterned paper which I cut down to 6×6. They are red with white polka dots. For my left side layout I wanted to welcome back our Elf on the Shelf Buddy. I added some teal patterned paper to the bottom half. I also used a fiskars scalloped border punch with American Crafts white textured cardstock and some teal glitter tape to separate the two patterns. I added a lovely White Lace Paper Doily behind my photo of my Elf Buddy which I made round with a circle punch.

fullsizerender-77

I added half circle stickers to the top and bottom of the page and I embellished with Chunky Cork Hearts and white flat back sequins from a retired mix which can also be found in the Happy Dance Mix.

fullsizerender-76

I used white Freckled Fawn puffy alpha stickers to write out my tittle. My numbers for each day are also from Freckled Fawn and I embossed them with white embossing powder.

fullsizerender-78

For the page on the right I used all of the same products. I also added a tag with some Red Bakers twine.

fullsizerender-79

I printed some photos in black and white and some in color. I also added some blear phrase stickers from Recollections on one of the photos and over the patterned paper.

 

I’m really happy with how it turned out. Last years album was way too thick so I’m trying to find ways to slim it down this year and this seemed like a good option since there wasn’t much going on these three days.

Happy Layout with Katty Miranda

Hello friends! Welcome back! Katty here to share a 12×12 layout with you all. I was inspired by this weeks sketch from Let’s Get Sketchy.

img_0151

I started with White American Crafts textured cardstock. I decided switched it up a bit. I used one photo instead of two and rather than a full circle in the background I used a half circle cut file I purchased from JustNick. It has open florals and it is very pretty. I decided to use the Shimmerz Coloringz in Peachy Keen using the packaging technique behind the open flowers. I also added some splatters in the Peachy Keen as well as in the No Yoking. I then added a simple grey patterned paper behind my photo and placed a blue frame from the Cocoa Vanilla Life is Beautiful ephemera pack over the photo.

fullsizerender-40

I sprinkled around the sequins from the 2 Cool 4 U sequin mix. I also added a yellow sequin to the centers of each flower. I used a few other pieces from the Life is beautiful ephemera pack. I even used one of the pieces, the word “Happy” as my tittle.

fullsizerender-41

I added a few butterflies I had punched out as well as the Flutter cork Butterflies around the layout as well.

fullsizerender-42

I also added a stripe Teresa Collins orange and white patterned paper to the sides of the layout. I love how it turned out.

Here is a side by side look.

Beautiful Flowers Layout by Katty Miranda

13932877_10210738580967273_2143640393516853298_n

Hello friends! Katty here to share another layout with you all. This week it’s a double page spread. We continue our team up this month with Let’s get Sketchy. This weeks awesome sketch is the second one by our very own Sara.

14716127_10211411132700646_8205798187983859827_n

I decided instead of one large photo in the center and lots of paper squares that I would use lots of small square photos. This was the perfect opportunity to scrap all of the photos of flowers that I took on my trip to Hawaii this past Summer. I had so many photos that this turned into a double page spread. I matted all of the photos on black cardstock and my background is 12×12 White American Crafts Textured Cardstock. I also used the textured cardtock  and cut out some small flowers on my Silhouette Cameo. I also cut out the outline of the flowers. The outlines I left white but the flowers I colored using a bunch of the Shimmerz Paints Mists. I used two colors on each flower. Then I glued the outline on top.

fullsizerender-44

I love how they turned out. I also cut out some leaves and used several of my Shimmerz Mists in the green and yellow tones to back the cut files. I added a sequin to the center of each flower. I used several sequin mixes including Let’s be Mermaids,  Peachy Sherbert,  Spring Blooms,  and Mint Chip.

fullsizerender-43

For my tittle I used a mix of thickers and some Rub ons from the My Minds Eye On Trend 2 collection. I kept my embellishing very simple,  I added a few arrow stickers from the We R Memory Keepers Urban Chic collection.

Here is a side by side look of the sketch and the layout. I love that it has a whimsical touch.

Sweet Baby Girl Layout with Katty Miranda

13876613_10210616252669142_2391417144707825514_n

Hello friends! Katty here! This month we are teaming up with the Let’s get Sketchy Team. Were going to be swapping sketches. This week as well as next week we are working with sketches created by our very own Sara. Here is this week’s awesome sketch.

14470594_10211213330675719_7501770718929578944_n

I decided to stay true to the sketch and use butterflies on my layout as well. I began with 12×12 White American Crafts Textured Cardstock.  I used the beautiful Shimmerz Paints mists in Peachy Keen, No Yoking and Cotton Candy. I sprayed them directly to my cardstock until the colors were well blended. Once dry, I used a Martha Stewart butterfly punch to punch out butterflies from the cardstock. I love the variation of color that I got.

fullsizerender-52

I also added the awesome Flutter Cork Butterflies on top of some of the punched out ones. I punched out some navy blue butterflies and also matted my photo with the same navy cardstock. For my background, I used a blue patterned paper from the Cocoa Vanilla Love Always collection. I also used two strips of patterned paper on the right hand side also from the Love always collection. I then embellished with the Cocoa Vanilla Life is Beautiful ephemera pack.

fullsizerender-51

For my tittle I used the word “Sweet” from the ephemera pack and the “Baby Girl are the thickers from the Pinkfresh Studio Indigo Hills collection.

fullsizerender-53

I added some beautiful sequins to my butterflies. I used the blue one from the Hot Right Now mix, the orange ones from the A Day in the Woods mix and the yellow ones from the Let’s be Mermaids mix.

fullsizerender-37-copy

I love how it turned out! Here is a side by side look of the sketch and the layout.

Manta Selfies Layout with Katty Miranda

Hello friends! Katty here to share another 12×12 layout with you all. I am scrapbooking a selfie I took while on a weekend trip to the Island of Bimini. It was actually an island off of Bimini and there are tons of Manta Rays just swimming around. It was very cool!

I began my layout with a Prima scallop circle stencil and the Dazzlers in Sea U in the morning. I used the stencil on the top center of a White American Crafts cardstock and created a mirror image on the bottom portion of the page. I then took a circle punch and punched out different patterns from the Pink Paislee Paige Evans Take me away collection. I cut the circles in half and placed them inside my scallop circles.

fullsizerender-23

I added a few sheets of patterned paper layered behind my photo. I also added vertical strips of one of the Pink 12×12 papers from the collection on either side of the page. I also added two coordinating wash tapes to either side. I used the blue and yellow sequins from the Hot Right Now Sequin Mix. I randomly placed them on top of the scallop half circles.

fullsizerender-20

I added a few ephemera pieces from the Pinkfresh Studio Indigo Hills and used the Indigo Hills navy thickers to create part of my tittle. The rest of my tittle was created using pink letter stickers from the Basic Grey B-side collection.

fullsizerender-21

I used one of the  6×6 papers from the Take me Away Collection which had different colored stripes and I cut out the stripes. I added them in between my scallop circles. I wanted to add some of the lovely Cloudy Days Felties. I clustered them in two areas and colored some of them using the Shimmerz Vibez in Blue Jeans.

fullsizerender-22

I also added some ink splatters with the Blue Jeans Mist. I also added some turquoise thread behind my clouds and on the left side of my photo.

fullsizerender-24

I love how this turned out. There is a process video on my Youtube channel if you’d like to watch: https://youtu.be/-rYBg-X5ims

Beautiful Eyes Layout with Katty Miranda

Hello friends! Katty here to share another 12×12 layout with you all. For this layout I began with American Crafts white Textured cardstock. I used a Craters Workshop stencil with some Gloss Medium to create the background. The gloss medium creates a resist effect. I then took several colors of Gelatos and smudged on circle shapes with my finger until I created a pattern I was happy with.

fullsizerender-18

I then layered a Large Glassine Bag which I filled with several different sequins from the Lilac Twinkle,  Believe in You,  Indian Summer, Hot Right Now,  Pink Lagoon and Peachy Sherbet mixes.

fullsizerender-21

I also scattered a few of the sequins around the photo framing the photo. I also layered a  White Lace Paper Doily and a few stickers from the We R Memory Keepers Urban Chic sticker sheet.

fullsizerender-19

 

For my tittle I will mix some stickers from the We R Memory Keepers sticker sheet and some thickers in the Juy and Doll fonts from my stash.

Soccer Fanatic Layout with Katty Miranda

Hello friends! Katty here to share another 12×12 layout with you all. I am scrapbooking a few photos of my younger son in our backyard playing soccer. He is currently obsessed with soccer. He has to play at least a little bit every day. These shots were taken a few weeks ago with my iPhone. They are a bit blurry thats why I didn’t print them bigger. I just want them to tell the story.

I began with American Crafts White textured cardstock. I used a stencil by the crafters workshop called Mod Checkerboard. I sprayed the center of the stencil with one of my lovely Shimmerz Coloringz Sprays in the color Heidi Ho Blue and I also used my Shimmerz Dazzlers in Gummy Berry Blue. I then used a square punch and punched out my 4 photos. I then scattered those around the stencil work to create my design. I also took some black and yellow patterned papers in black and yellow and punched out some squares in two sizes and then layered them on top of each other. I scattered those around as well. I added some soccer balls and words from a Rub on sheet. I love how they look. Especially since I have a hard time with very themed embellishments.

fullsizerender-28

I then added black ink splatters in two areas of my layout. I pulled out the lovely Cloudy Days Felties in two sizes and painted the smaller ones with the Heidi Ho Blue Shimmerz Spray. As a finishing touch I added a few circle chipboard embellishments from MAMBI and I matted the whole layout on a black and white diagonal striped Patterned Paper from Simple stories.

fullsizerender-27

I am very happy with how this turned out. There is a process video on my Youtube channel if you’d like to watch: https://youtu.be/y1K6mryN3dI

What about Wednesday with Katty Miranda

13932877_10210738580967273_2143640393516853298_n

Hello friends! Katty here for another What about Wednesday. Today I am focusing on a repetitive element. In my case I am using the adorable dog from the new Simple Stories Posh collection and hearts.

I began with American Crafts White Textured Cardstock which I matted with a black and cream diagonal stripe paper from the Simple Stories Posh collection. I used a Dina Wakely stencil with some tiny squares and used my Shimmerz Dazzlers in Coral me Crazy and Sea U in the Mornin through it. I created a square area behind the area where my photo will go.

fullsizerender-4

I then layered a few papers from the Posh collection about two inches from the bottom of my layout. I trimmed the sides so that my diagonal stripe border would show all around. The main paper has a big dog on it. I decided I would repeat the dog element since I am scrapbooking a photo of my nieces new French Bulldog Bruce. I used the same dog from the ephemera pack, the sticker sheet and fussy cut the same dog from one of the cut apart sheets,

I created a cluster up top using a tag I cut out from one of the patterned papers and a banner I cut out and wrote the puppy’s name on and yet another sticker of the dog from the collection.

fullsizerender-1

I then added sequins to the biggest dog from the collection in coordinating colors to his clothing I used several sequin mixes from the shop. The dark blue and yellow sequins are from the Hot Right Now Mix, Teal ones from the Believe in You Mix, Green ones from the Mocha Mint Dream Mix and the Coral ones from the Peachy Sherbert Mix.

fullsizerender-2

Finally, I scattered around a few of the Chunky Cork Hearts and added a sticker heart on top. I also added a row of hearts at the bottom alternating cork hearts and stickers.

fullsizerender-3

I love how it turned out. It came together very quickly!

Scrappy Saturday Layout with Katty Miranda

13876613_10210616252669142_2391417144707825514_n

Hello friends! Katty here to share a 12×12 layout with you all. Today for Scrappy Saturday I am scrapbooking a photo of my brother and niece at her college graduation last December. We are so proud of her. I decided to print the photo in black and white because her gown was purple and my brother was wearing a red shirt! Not the best color combination.

I began with a few patterned papers from the Fancy Pants Office Suite and Happy Place Collections. I decided to use a black and white stripe and polka dot as my background. I layered them in between some American Crafts White Textured Cardstock. I tilted the papers a bit so that they weren’t all perfectly straight. I also used my distress tool to distress the white cardstock edges. I added a strip of arrows to the four corners using a Teresa Collins Stencil and the beautiful Shimmerz Dazzlerz in Coral Me Crazy.

aFullSizeRender

I added a simple black cardstock mat for my photo and layered one of the blue patterned papers behind it. I also added a White Lace Paper Doily both behind my photo and on the bottom cluster. I used one of the patterned papers that has a beautiful floral on it and fussy cut some flowers from it. I layered the flowers around my photo, which I placed towards the top left of the page and also clustered some of the flowers on the bottom right. I also grabbed some leaf sprigs and 2 flowers I had cut out in my silhouette cameo and backed those with black cardstock to add to my floral clusters.

FullSizeRenderkkkk FullSizeRenderk

I pulled out the Kaisercraft Finders Keepers Paper Pad and found that the colors in it worked perfectly with the Fancy Pants papers I had picked out to use.

FullSizeRenderkkk

I layered one of the papers behind my photo and pulled some of the embellishment circles and tags that come in the paper pad and scattered them around my page in my clusters. I decided  I needed an small third cluster on the top left of the page behind my photo as well. For some extra texture and sparkle I also added the beautiful yellow flowers from the Happy Dance Sequins in my clusters as well.

FullSizeRenderkk

For my tittle I crated a shelf for my tittle to sit on to the right of my photo using a pink strip from the Fancy Pants papers and a blue scallop border from the Kaisercraft Finders Keepers Paper Pad. I added some of the flatback frosted white sequins also from the Happy Dance Sequins to the scallops. For the actual tittle I used a Wood veneer from my stash that says “Congrats,” I colored it black using Black India Ink. As a finishing touch, I added splatter with the same Black India Ink.

I really love the end result. There is a process video on my Youtube channel if you’d like to watch: https://youtu.be/qEXfuk3ozpw

What about Wednesday Layout with Katty Miranda

what about wednesday blog headerHello friends! Katty here for another What about Wednesday. Today’s focus for me is multiple photos. What about Multiple photos? Well, we’ve kinda forgotten about them. We often go for that one perfect picture and then use a very similar one on another layout. I really wanted to focus on using more than one photo. A great way to do that is with a series of photos. I am using three photos of my niece and nephew. I made them black and white so that I could make this layout bright and colorful without my photos competing, this way, they truly stand out.

My idea for this layout began while I was playing around with my Shimmerz products and the fun Medium Glassine Bags. I used four of my Shimmerz, DreamscicleLemon DropSour Apple and Sea U in the Mornin with a Prima checkerboard stencil. I love the mix of the four colors.

FullSizeRender33

I did the same to two of the Glassine Bags and placed then in the center of my page. For my background I used White American Crafts Textured Cardstock. I placed my three photos over the Glassine Bags and did some very simple embellishing. I picked a few die cuts from both the Pink Paislee Fancy Free ephemera pack and the Kaisercraft Chase Rainbows ephemera pack. I also used a few chipboard pieces from the Fance Free collection.

1s

I took two triangle strips of a patterned paper from the Pink Paislee Fancy Free paper pad and added those to the top and bottom of my layout.

FullSizeRender

My title was made up by using an ephemera piece from Chase Rainbows, a chipboard piece from Fancy Free and white tiny letter stickers from Kaisercraft. This was a lot of fun to create. It’s very simple and I love how it turned out.

What about Wednesday Layout with Katty Miranda

13879247_10210622122575886_4684520848421901288_n

Hello friends! Katty here. Today for What about Wednesday I am focusing on Watercolors. They add so much color and interest to a layout.  I began with American Crafts white textured cardstock. I used a floral and leaf cutfile from my silhouette cameo which I also cut out with American Crafts white textured cardstock. I cut the flowers out in different sizes. I even cut out a huge one to mat my photo with. I began by coloring the flowers and leaves with my watercolors. I focused on shades of orange and some yellow.

Once I had my flowers colored I cut my photo into a circle and matted it with a coral polka dot paper from the Pebbles Lakeside collection. I also used the same paper to mat my layout, i didn’t mat the whole thing just the bottom and right side. I then took my huge flower which I left white and used two pieces of acetate to create a pocket behind the flower cut file. I filled that pocket with the Indian Summer Sequins.

FullSizeRender (13)

I aslo added the Indian Summer Sequins to the center of the flowers. I also scattered around some of the pink flower sequins from the Raspberry Daisy Dream Sequins.

FullSizeRender (12)

To finish off my layout i added some black India ink splatters.
