Love Layout with Laura

Shake It Up Scrapbooking

Hello, Laura here today to share a shaker scrapbook layout with a process video.

I assembled my giant shaker pocket with vellum and super sticky tape.  I reckon almost any transparent material can be made in to a shaker pocket, and narrow tape or a line of stitching with a sewing machine are my favourite ways to attach the edges.

I have used: Crushin’ on Purple sequin mix, doily, tag and wood veneer all from SpiegelMom Scraps

Gauging the amount of sequins for your shaker pocket is an art… I like to hold the edge closed and give it a shake and find I often don’t have enough.  You need a fair amount in the pocket to give the best effect, especially in a pocket this size.  Aren’t those teeny tiny stars adorable?  I love them mixed with the larger stars too.

I coloured my wood veneer with a silver pen.  To give a nice base to colour on to, and to get the best colour from the silver I added a thin coat of white gesso first.  The silver seems to look more silver over white than it does over the plain wood – does that make sense?!

You’ll find more details about the rest of the supplies listed on my blog in a couple of days.  Don’t forget to add the code Laura15 at the SpiegelMom Scraps shop checkout to receive 15% off!
Thanks for looking, I’d love to hear what you think!

Tuesday’s Talent with Pocono Pam: My Favorite!

@spieglemomscraps @poconopam, #spiegelmomscraps #scrapbook #DIY #cardmaking #projectlife #diecutHola SpiegelMom Scraps fans! Pocono Pam here with my last post as Jody’s guest designer for January. Wow! This month went by quickly huh? Valentine’s Day will be here before we know it! For that reason, I was inspired to make a love card and altered paper bag!

I started this project off with a white 10” X 6” Celebrate Paper Bag, the Recollections Valentine’s Day 6″ X 6″ Paper Pad and some fun embellishments from the SpiegelMom Scraps Shop.

Next, after folding and gluing the bag to create a pocket, I added patterned paper from the paper pad. (Geesh…. say that 5 times fast! )

I adhered white lace on the bag along the top of the pocket.

The fun part began when I made pleats in the 1/4″ light pink & white check ribbon from the SMS Shop to place on top of the lace. (This did not come without a few hot glue burns! Yikes!) I added a bow made with the same pink ribbon and added 3 pink fabric roses from my stash.

Underneath the pleated ribbon, I adhered a string of pink Felt Fetti from the SMS Shop.

Beneath the lace on the right hand side, I layered a pink felt heat with a few cork hearts. I did the opposite on the upper left-hand side of the bag with a cork heart and a string of pink felt hearts. I tied a bow with a piece of sting I had in my stash.

On the lower left-hand corner I layered a cork and felt heart along with a Studio Calico Wood Veener Speech Bubble. As in previous posts, I touched it up with pink Wink of Stella Glitter. I was excited when bling I had in my stash fit perfectly into the “O” in “FAVORITE”!

To go along with the bag, I quickly created a card using paper from the pad. I added more felt hearts and this cute Greeting Farms Image Stella.

I covered the back of the bag.  The inside of the bag can be used for goodies to give as a gift! You can punch holes at the top and add a ribbon for closure or leave it as is!

Artiste Mini Album with Chantilly Lace & Pretty Faces

Happy, Happy Saturday my scrappy friends!! I’m sharing a fun mini album today using the Close To My Heart Chantilly papers and my the exclusively CTMH Artiste Cricut Cartridge. I love making special little gifts for those special people in my life and mini’s like this are my fav! I’ll get right to it with lots of pictures to share today.

I created this fun mini for my mother in law Dolly for her sister Elaine’s visit last week. I cut my mini album pages using my Cricut Artiste Cartridge, inked lots of the edges and started piling on the layers!

Check out how I added the 4×4 Instagram pictures. I reinforced all the mini album holes with my Crop-a-dile and the large eyelets. I reinforced the holes for the photos the same way. I don’t know about some of you, but when I first started scrapbooking I bought hoards of eyelets and now hardly use them. Ok ladies, dig into that stash and use them!

I added texture of a bunch of the die cuts and pockets by running them through my Sizzix Texture Boutique. I love the extra details the dry embossing adds to die cut or any element you want to adhere to your project! Plus, it’s so fun to actually USE those tools and look so pretty just sitting there 🙂

I included a few pockets & a bunch of shipping tags also. They’re fun interactive elements that Dolly can write on or add more pictures herself.

And you should always ‘bring up the rear’ and do something pretty on the back of your mini album too! I just stamped a simple sentiment from CTMH and adhered it with more Chantilly papers.

And, you’re done! That was a lot of pictures to go through, whew! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own mini album with whatever supplied to you have on hand & use your Cricut and embossing tools!!

Happy Scrappin’!!

Let’s Get Hoppin’

Welcome to your 5th stop on the Memory Works Birthday Blog Hop! You should have hopped over from Studio C with the uber talented Christy Musack.  The Design Team has some awesome projects on this hop in honor of Memory Works turning 10 years old!  You’ll see many of the newest Memory Works products on display, so let’s party it up!!  Here’s the full line-up.

->5. Jody Spiegelhoff http://spiegelmom.blogspot.com/ <-
15. Christine Pennington http://christines-creativetherapy.blogspot.com/

I created a 12 month birthday timeline for our little Abigail, a.k.a Abby, for her 1 year birthday party.  She doesn’t turn 1 until November 14th, so for once I’ll be ahead of schedule!  I used the new Dear Lizzy Neapolitan 6×6″ pad, Chipboard, Vellum, MME Dolled Up & Crate Paper Pretty Party Stickers {here and there}, glassine bags, natural burlap string, Jillibean Corrugated Butterflies & Banners, American Crafts Rosette Ribbon, misc chipboard numbers, Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type letters, May Arts Watermelon Sheer ribbon and WRMK Eyelets.  Whew!  Now that’s a supply list!

As you can see, the pictures stop at the 7 month banner… she’s only 7 months!

Now for some close-ups! 
I used the Tim Holtz Rosette Die & an EK Success Border Punch on this Banner.  Abby’s picture is inside the glassine bag on a pull out tag.

A little doily & spray ink from Mr. Huey goes a long was in adding some delicate texture.  I also ran the clouds & banners through my Sizzix Texture Boutique for some fun dimensional polka dots.

I also ran the glassine bags through my Texture Boutique ~ polka dots, flowers and swirly patterns give it more girly charm & texture.

Here’s a fun silhouette of the hanging banner in our front picture window.

Thanks so much for stopping by & helping us party it up for Memory Works turning 10!
