Scrappy Saturday- I love this girl

Hello everyone!!

How excited are you that Christmas is only a few days away!!! My kiddos are so excited! lol Anyways…. This week I’m scraplifting the awesome Missy Whidden!

This is the layout of Missys that I decided to scraplift. I wanted to go a different way since I’ve been on a roll of scrapping circles lol. So I chose a grid. I will say that I did a lose scraplift of this layout lol.

I loved the Birthdays&Balloons sequin mix and Crate papers Cute Girl collection went great with it! I had already picked out my pictures of my niece, shes so pretty, but I swipped her snapchat pics to scrap lol.

I started my layout by pulling out some of my shimmerz that matched the colors in the sequins and in the paper collection and using the packaging technique  around my layout like Missy had.  Once I had the colors where I wanted them and let them dry, I added the machine stitching like she had.

I kept my grid loser then Missy did, but I knew I wanted it to cover more of the page, I was trying not to have so much white space. But after knowing where I wanted my pictures, I started my paper layering in the other two spaces and then behind my photos too.

I went in as I was adding the layers and added some little thread nests for some more texture and because Missy had added them.

After adding little puffy stickers here and there and the thread nests, I moved on to adding all the pretty shinies! Birthdays & Balloons sequin mix has so many colors and the shine on some of them are just different. I’m guessing its because some of them are see threw and some aren’t, but I love the different shines they give!

Thanks so much for checking out this layout, and make sure to check out all the great layouts that all the other Sparklers made too and make sure to check out what Missy has made too!

Make It Yours Monday~ Welcome Little One

Hello scrappy friends! Thanks for joining me for another Make It Yours Monday. This month, our theme has been circles and sketches, and this weeks sketch is SO fun and different!!!

To begin my layout, I trimmed down my white cardstock 1/4″ all around. Then, using the packaging technique, applied a light pink Shimmerz to the lower right corner of the page. This created a messy but fun area that my photo will sit in later on. Next, using a dinner plate from my kitchen, I traced 4 circles, making sure to overlap and off set them as a guide for my stitching. I took the page to my sewing machine and stitched over the lines (not very well!!!) using 4 colors of thread (navy, pink, teal and purple) that worked with the colors I’m using on the rest of the page.

After the circles were stitched, I began to work with my photo. I chose to mat my picture with a soft lilac and polka dot paper, then, to make it stand out, a slightly darker purple shade of cardstock. I added some foam tape to the back to make it stand out just a bit more and adhered it to the layout on the bottom right corner, slightly crooked, trying to follow the lines of the circle. 

Instead of circles around the photo, I opted to go with hearts. Using my heart punches in various sized, I punched them from different pieces of pattern papers coordinating with the colors I had in the thread. I arranged them in a curve both above and below the photo, keeping the circle vibe going. To mimic the dotted circles on the sketch, I added some more hearts punched from vellum. 

To bring in some more color and a dose of sparkle, I used the new Unicorns & Rainbows sequin mix, which also inspired my entire color pallet for this page. Going around the circle, I added these beautiful sequins all around the page, as well as by the title, that I added to the inner most circle, again, following the curve. 

To finish my page, I matted the entire layout on a deep purple cardstock and stitched around the edges. A date stamps and extra splatters were the final touch. 

I hope you enjoyed todays layout and will use this sketch as well! When your done, be sure to share it in the Spiegelmom Scraps Facebook group, 15 Minutes to Scrap with Spiegelmom Scraps!!!! AND, be sure to stop by the shop and grab some of the GREAT products used here, and make sure you

Scrappy Saturday- Good Vibes

Good morning everyone!! I hope your having an amazing weekend, we’ve had a long weekend here and the kids have been having a blast! Our weather has went from freezing to in the 80’s again lol, our weather cant decided what it wants to do here!

But on to the scrapping and pretties!!

This month were playing with circles and this is the sketch were playing with this week. I love playing with sketches and circles are a fun switch up too!! I have to be honest, I usually stick with squares and rectangles, so its fun to break out of my norm.

I loved this months new sequins and I really wanted to play with the Dream Land mix. I want to play with them all but I dont know what a layout would look like with ALL of them on there lol. Anyways, I went through my scrappy stash and pulled out what I had left over from the Girly and strong kit from The Fairy tale club. The kit had everything but the purple in it, and I hate that I didnt use the purple cause its one of my favorite colors! But all the other colors matched!!! And I was so happy about that!

I started out playing with a little Shimmerz on the background. I used Spritz Cotton Candy, Dazzlerz Sea U in the morning and splattered a little Shimmerz Bumbly Bee on there too! I do have to say that I am loving Bumbly Bee, its amazing! The shimmer to it is fantastic! Anyways, back to it. After I let the background dry, I sewed four circles on the background in black thread and then started the layering.

Usually I wait to put my sequins on last but this time I started with them! I pulled out my sequins and started placing them around my sewn circles. I wanted to play with them so bad and loved the way they sparkled!! After I placed them down, I thought I should probably get some pretty paper and pictures put down. So I pulled out some pictures of me, of course playing with snapchat again,lol.

I pulled out some doilies from my stash and laid them in my sewn circles and started layering behind my photos. The papers were bright and fun and I loved the way it was coming together. I had already used all the embellishments that came with the kit so I had to make my own, so I pulled one paper that had pretty roses on it and another that had lip stick on it and started to fussy cut!

For my title, I pulled out a Dear Lizzy die cut word and added some cotton candy Spritz, then added it onto of my doily. Then tucked in a large lipstick for fun and a pretty flower.

I finished the layering behind the rest of the photos, cut down the white cardstock and added the light blue, blue striped paper to the background and was done.

I hope you play along this week with this sketch and make sure to share on instagram and tag Spieglemom_scraps in it!! We’d love to see what you create!! And remember when your checking out at Spieglemom Scraps, make sure to use code SARAH15 when you check out to get 15% off your purchase!

Scrappy Saturday-This makes my heart happy

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!

I hope you enjoyed this layout and I hope you come back to see what all the other Sparklers make!! And make sure to use my code at checkout to receive 15% off your order!!

Make It Yours Monday~ I Love Fall (and You)….

Happy Monday everybody and welcome back for another Make It Your’s Monday! I have a layout for you today that combines both the Girly Glitter AND Sugar Maple sequin mixes for a fresh fall look!

I began my layout with a piece of almond cardstock trimmed down 1/4″ on each side. I inked the edges with a dark brown ink to give it a distressed look and then, added the dark brown pattern paper, after I crumbled it up a bit to give it the look of a fall leaf! I added a strip of amber paper to hide the seam of the woodgrain, and to add more color.

Next, I took my photo and matted it on some gorgeous warm orange cardstock to make it pop. Then, into my fall paper scraps I went to create a layered look behind that. I wanted to give it an almost quilted look, so i used different patterns in each of the corners, including some gold glitter cardstock. For some added texture, I added an 8″ doily behind the entire photo mat. Some fall leaves, that I created with the FREE Spiegelmom Scraps cut file, Lovely Leaves, were tucked into each corner, after I used a Versamark pen and copper embossing powder to give them some details.

My title is to the right of the photo cluster, and I wanted to use a common fall phrase and give it a twist! Using a combination of tiny tile letters and Orange thickers, it reads, I Love Fall & *You* most of all. I love how it fit perfectly in that space and how it came out!! More of the die cut leaves, cut very small!!!, were sprinkled around the title area. I matted the entire layout on a piece of pretty fall plaid pattern paper and then, got to the sequins! The pretty yellows from the Girly Glitter mix as well as the iridescent ivory’s from Sugar Maple mix were just perfect for even more texture, color and sparkle to finish this fun fall leave pile layout!!

I hope you have a crafty Monday and dont forget to stop by the Spiegelmom Scraps shop for some of these amazing sequins as well as the amazing free cut files!! When you do,

Scrappy Saturday-Fall Fave

Good morning everyone!! Sarah here this morning sharing a new layout with you that I scrap lifted from the lovely Kelly Barron. And this is the layout that I chose to use.For my layout, I decided that I would flip the layout where the picture was over on the left side because in my picture my hubby is looking towards the right.

I pulled out Oakley Avenue, a fall collection from Pretty little Studios. I thought it went perfect with the photo and the pretty Ferris Wheel sequins and the Just Beachin it sequins went perfectly with this collection!

I started my layout by piecing together the layers of paper behind the photo to get that cluster going. I wanted to make sure I had a place to journal, I knew Kelly had used a card with a little camera on it, so I decided to make that a journaling spot on my layout. This was a fall layout, so I thought it would look good with some leaves on it, so I cut out a few with my Silhouette and tucked them in here and there and instead of scallops on the side of the photo layers I use some of the arrow stickers from this collection.

I added two paper strips to the bottom and top like Kelly did and then started to add embellishments there too. I added a little cut apart at the top that says Feeling Fallish, I cut out a few little leafs from one of the papers in the collection and added those tucked in too along with some stickers.

I moved to the bottom of the layout and tucked in a few more leafs and started on one of my favorite parts…. Adding the bling!! I added a mix of the two sequin sets from the bottom left up to the top right and that finished my layout for me!

I hope you enjoyed this layout and remember if your looking to get some more sequins added to your scrappy stash, mention my name in the comment section during check out and get an extra 15% off your order!! Happy Scrapping!!

Scrapbooking with Karla – Scraplifting Shimelle!

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @shimelle @karlayungwirth @americancrafts #spiegelmomscraps #sequins #scrapbooking #scraplifting #shimelle #memorykeeping #truestories #starshine #embellishments #papercrafting

Hi, Karla here today! This week we’re scraplifting Shimelle Laine! She is one of my favourite scrapbookers, who has had such an amazing influence in the world of scrapbooking. From Two Peas to Glitter Girl, she’s helped break down the ‘rules’ of scrapbooking and help us understand why things work and how to do them. Here’s a look at Shimelle’s layout that I chose to scraplift-

@shimelle
Layout by Shimelle Laine

I didn’t have the new Glitter Girl collection that Shimelle used, but I did have two other of her collections – True Stories and Starshine, so I decided to use the papers and stickers from those to create my layout along with the Star Spangled, Honor Guard and Hey Kiddo sequin mixes.

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @shimelle @karlayungwirth @americancrafts #spiegelmomscraps #sequins #scrapbooking #scraplifting #shimelle #memorykeeping #truestories #starshine #embellishments #papercrafting

I love the paper layers, and for anyone who struggles to create layers to frame a photo this is a good way to get started on how to do it – by following someone else’s layout.

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @shimelle @karlayungwirth @americancrafts #spiegelmomscraps #sequins #scrapbooking #scraplifting #shimelle #memorykeeping #truestories #starshine #embellishments #papercrafting

I love the blue star sequins in the Honor Guard sequin mix! Even though there are pinks in the photo and some on the papers, I chose to focus on the primary colours. I even used the round camera lenses as a place to add some sequin details for a more subtle, but fun effect.

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @shimelle @karlayungwirth @americancrafts #spiegelmomscraps #sequins #scrapbooking #scraplifting #shimelle #memorykeeping #truestories #starshine #embellishments #papercrafting

I love adding different textures together, such as the Tim Holtz sentiment sticker, the star chipboard sticker, the banner cut paper sentiment and the clear sticker popped up on foam dots together with the different sizes and colours of sequins!  They all look cohesive, but your eye has lots of different things to look at.

Scrappy Saturday-Being Weird

Good morning ladies!!

I hope your enjoying your weekend so far!! This is our last weekend before the kiddos go back to school and oh man we have a lot going on! We have our oldest sons 1st football game of the season, our youngest is turning one!!! Omg! And making sure everything is together for school Monday. And in there some where I want to try and find some more time to scrap!! lol

But on to the actually layout I came to share with you this morning. Lol This week over on the Spiegelmomscraps blog were scraplifting the fantastic Katty Miranda!

Here is the layout I chose to scraplift of hers:

To start my layout I pulled out a few of my favorite shimmerz and played with the packaging technique on the background. Mine is no where near as bright as Katty’s but I loved the way the colors blended together and went with the Create Paper  Confetti collection that I had decided to use. I know I could have made them stand out more but I decided to not use gesso on the background and keep it a but lighter.

I wanted to scrap this goofy picture of me and my hubby playing with one of the Snapchat filters. I have a lot of these kind of pictures! Me and my kiddos play with it all the time too! lol I layered a few papers behind my picture and then moved on to embellishing.

I wanted to add a lot of embellishments like Katty had, but I didn’t want to use so many flowers since this was just a goofy pic of me and my hubby. I mean dont get me wrong I could have easily used flowers, but I wanted to use some of the pointed circles that were in the collection already. But I did add a few flowers in there too!

After adding the paper embellishments in there and getting them where I wanted them, I stuck them down and started playing with some of the chipboard pieces and other 3D embellishments. And pulled out my cute little Shooting cork stars and layered them in where I wanted them.

I always save the best for last! I pulled out one of my favorite sequin packs right now, Fairy Garden. I love playing with my sequins! lol I added those beautiful little shiny pops of color here and there on my layout and was done.

I loved scraplifting Katty this week, I had fun with it! And I hope your liked my take on Katty’s layout!!

And remember if your looking for some pretty shinys to add to your stash, make sure to head to the SpiegleMomscraps store and use my name to get 15% off!!

I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!

Scrappy Saturday-Bath time baby

Good morning everyone and welcome to Scrappy Saturday!!!

This month were having fun with some scrap lifting and I was so excited about this! This week were scrap lifting the great Kat Benjamin! It was so hard for me to choose one layout, I went through and saved a ton, just like with all the others and then went back through and eliminated them as I went, lol, so hard!

Here is the layout of Kats that I finally decided to scrap lift.

And here is my scrap lift of it!

I loved the layout and knew what picture I wanted to use, along with what collection! I still had some of my  Story Time kit left from The Fairytale Club and the colors and the cute little mermaids were just perfect along with the beautiful sea shell sequins!

I went through and chose what papers I was going to use and pulled out one of my planner dashboards and fussy cut that beautiful little mermaid out.

I arranged all my papers like Kat had arranged hers and then went to pulling out my clear sheets and sewing them down to the long rectangle at the back of my layering and up on my corner. I chose to go with my clear sheets instead of vellum because I wanted to be able to see the patterned paper behind them still after I got the sequins added in.

I left a small space open and poured my sequins in. I used a mix of different sequins, I love that you can mix and match them and they still go so well together! I used some from Black Tie event, Sparkle Power, Sweet Summer Vibes, Bold Stardust and 2 of the min sequin packs, the blue and purple shells. Everything went together so perfectly! I was so happy with it. Kats layout was amazing and I had so much fun playing along and putting my twist on one of her beautiful layouts!

Scrapbooking with Karla – Paper Layering Scraplift

Hello friends! Karla here today with another scrapbook page following along with our Scraplift theme – and this week it’s the amazing Kat Benjamin or KraftyKat as she’s also known! I love her clean style, and I love how she coordinates the products she’s using! She also makes awesome pocket pages <3

I decided to scraplift Kat’s page Hey Handsome – here’s a look at it:@katbenjamin @kraftykat9

I really liked the layers of paper she used and the striking black title, so even though I went with a totally different colour scheme I followed the basic layout. I really love scraplifting – I think it makes you try different ideas and styles that you might not otherwise, and you just might find something you love! I chose an older collection I had in my stash – Jubilee by My Mind’s Eye and the awesome NEW sequin mixes from the SpiegelMom Scraps Store: Star Spangled, Girly Glitter and Ferris Wheel!

@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @mymindseyeinc @katbenjamin #spiegelmomscraps #smssequins #sequinlove #kraftykat9 #katbenjamin #scraplift #mymindseyeinc #scrapbooklayout #12x12 #scrapbooking #papercrafting #memorykeeping #journaling #cleanandsimple

I used a 1″ circle punch to cut out coordinating papers and placed them on in a similar way to Kat’s page. I even pop-dotted one to give it a little extra dimension. I pulled colours from my photo and paper when choosing the sequins and I grouped them around each circle.

@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @mymindseyeinc @katbenjamin #spiegelmomscraps #smssequins #sequinlove #kraftykat9 #katbenjamin #scraplift #mymindseyeinc #scrapbooklayout #12x12 #scrapbooking #papercrafting #memorykeeping #journaling #cleanandsimple

I really liked the black title on Kat’s page, so I decided to use one of the acetate overlays from this collection, backed by a piece of patterned paper. I added a strip of the arrow paper to add some colour above the title and used a chipboard sentiment to add dimension. A few more sequins above and below the title follow Kat’s layout, and I added my journaling by first penciling in straight lines and writing with a Faber Castel pen.

Trendy Tuesday- Celebrate

Good morning everyone!! Sarah here this morning with a new layout with a birthday theme. As you’ve probably noticed, this is birthday week! And were to scrap something we don’t normally scrap birthday wise.

So this week I scrapbooked my 31st birthday. I don’t normally scrap my birthdays, maybe the big years, milestones, but that’s about it. So here it is.

I have had a bunch of this Crate Paper Confetti collection in my stash and decided to use it since there are so many different sequin packs that match it!!

I started off by layering some of the papers and an ephemera piece behind the photo and adding a glittery star and a cute little now. I figured it’s a layout about my birthday, so why not!?

I’m not big on journaling where others can see it,especially when it’s about personal things, so I grabbed those little pockets and adheared it down, grabbed two of the tags from the ephemera pack and did a little journaling, slid them in and started adding a 3d cupcake and a cute little stacked pin.then I saw that cute balloon and decided, why not, it’s too cute!

I added my photo and it’s mats to the right of the little pocket and then moved to the bottom of the layout. I grabbed that chipboard banner and added it. I had those cute tassels in my stash and popped it behind the pinwheel and added that in the middle of the banner.

I wanted something to the far right of my layout, so I added two strips to the side and it brought a little color to my layout.

I broke in to my major stash of speigelmom sequins and started to play! I used three different collection, black tie event, Ferris Wheel, and Girly Glitter. The colors in these matched perfect to this collection and I love the bling that they add to the layout!

Thanks for coming and checking out my layout this week and make sure to check out all the great projects by the rest of the team, there on youtube, Instagram, here and on facebook!!

Make It Yours Monday~ Dawn

make it yours monday

Welcome back to another Make it Yours Monday. Today’s inspiration layout by Caroline Free is so beautiful, I knew it was perfect for this photo.

16179391_10212145454456977_4997923900729889988_o

2-20 Collage

 

I started with a few pieces of American Crafts white cardstock. I used one as the base and one for the cut file of leaves. On the base, I splattered some Glorious Day Vibes for some pretty gold shimmer.16832237_10211876403806469_4582393468187328994_n

I then laid the cut file, which was a wreath to start, in each corner and trimmed the extra leaves. I added some pop dots under some of the leaves to make them stand out a bit, since it’s tone on tone. 16641052_10211876403326457_8497898621470489270_n

I mounted my photo, (the sunrise from the morning I learned my Mom had passed) on some gold patterned vellum and navy cardstock. I added it to the layout in the center of the layout to make it the star of the page, 16807731_10211876403966473_7713851077258952295_n

Then, I got to fussy cutting the beautiful flowers, I used Paper 10 from the Pink Paislee Take Me Away collection. I made sure to cut more than I needed to see which ones would fit best where I needed them. I layered them on to the layout and adhered them down when I got the right combination of flower pieces. 16807731_10211876403966473_7713851077258952295_n

The title fit perfectly under the photo’s right corner, and I stayed with the white on white and used some pretty sparkly white Thickers. 16865166_10211876404326482_2618604383938733431_n

This layout really would not have felt finished without some sparkle. The new Morning Dew Drops were the perfect finishing touch. 16649109_10211876403846470_2610927123907361766_n

Make It Yours Monday!!

Monday Blog Header

Hello, Lisa here and Happy Monday! I’m so glad you joined me for another Make It Yours Monday! This week, the inspiration came from a cloud cut file I saw recently. I liked the shape, and the way they fit around a page. I started with my cloud paper punch, but it just was not the same shape. Then, I found my scallop punch and it all came together from there!!

10-3-spl-ft

 

I started this layout with a piece of  dark blue cardstock. I mounted my photo and project life card on first, a piece of ombre pink paper from the Fancy Free paper pad. Then, I added a piece of mint cardstock behind the pink paper, to tie in the PL card color.

I added atg adhesive in the center of my matted photo piece and placed it in the center of the page. I left the sides unglued so I could work with the paper punches easier. I took the square paper all the patterns from Fancy Free and punched scalloped circles from each of the squares. I cut them in half to have 2 of each. After I laid some adhesive under the photo mat (one side at a time so the photo mat does not stick to the others while your working!!) I lined up the punched scallops, making sure to not get 2 like colors together.

14485056_10210485227907941_7555626513790965428_n

The light pink and teal sequins from the Mocha Mint Dream sequin mix were a great compliment to the colors I used in the layout. I lined the bottom of the photo mat, alternating the pink and teal colors. I added a teal bow from Heidi Swapp to the bottom corner of the Project Life card. Some Gold Heidi Shine and I left it alone!!

14523059_10210485228187948_3726131543036236577_n

It was a quick and easy layout but I think it’s really a pretty design. I hope you will look around and find inspiration in different places, and Make it your own, to work on a layout for you!!!

Make It Yours Monday

Monday Blog Header

Welcome back to another Make It Yours Monday with SpiegelMom Scraps!!! I hope you guys enjoyed the amazingly awesome Triple Blog Hop and all the incredible projects that were shared!

Today, I have a layout inspired by a heart shaped tag from my daughters new sneakers and a layout that I found on pinterest. I wanted to combine the 2 and was very happy with the finished page! (I want to apologize for the lighting of my photo’s, but a tropical storm stole the sun and I had to take them inside!)

94 Collage

The only Patterned paper I used for this layout was from the Fancy Free collection. I used the soft mint for the foundation, the peachy pink for the mid section and a bit of yellow, mint and peach to make the banners in the top right corner. I added some gold scallop washi tape to secure the banners. After I notched out a half circle, I added my journaling on a shipping tag and tucked it behind the layout in a pocket.

9 4 blog post 3

For the mid section of the layout, I made a shaker tag out of another shipping tag and filled it with Spring Blooms Sequins and Gold Confetti Sequins. I added some doodles to the boarder to keep it from getting lost. I adhered a White Doily doily and layered the shaker tag and my photo over top.

9 4 details

A journaling card serves as my title and a few more doodles pulled the shaker, journaling and the title card together. I sprinkled some of the sequins around the page to bring some sparkle around each section! The scalloped washi tape finished off the middle part and I also brought a piece to the bottom left corner to dress is up a bit, along with some sequins. A few splatters of Gold Color Shine and I was Done!
