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!

Hi friends! Karla back today with a scraplift for you using the amazing Missy Whidden, our Guest Designer this month, as inspiration, along with three beautiful new sequin mixes – Cunning One, Birthdays & Balloons and Cotton Candy Land. I really loved the pinks, yellows and greens in her layout, and of course Missy rocks the watercolours, so I wanted to use those elements in my layout as well as layering paper behind my photo and using different stickers and fonts for a title. Here you can see Missy’s wonderful layout!

Layout By Missy Whidden

Here’s a look at my layout using some photos from a December when my daughter was 3 and we went to the local zoo for a Zoolights display. I pulled out a Simple Stories collection that has nontradition colours, and of course was excited to find this cute penguin journaling card and sticker to go with the penguin lights in my photo! I started off with a white sheet of cardstock and used my Tattered Angels mists in pink, yellow, green and iridescent gold to create a watercolour effect on the background by using a piece of plastic packaging to spritz the mist on before smooshing it onto the paper. Then, I created some splattered effects by removing the cover and tapping the nozzle onto the desired areas.

I used some of the clear sequins in the Cunning One sequin mix to accent the light strand sticker that I placed on the journaling card. They add just a bit of shine to the lights!

I had a lot of fun diecutting some watercoloured patterned paper with the Lawn Fawn String Of Lights die and sponging the edges with Distress Inks. I really loved the look of the gold Missy added onto her layout and I pulled that in with the gold string diecuts, the loooped gold thread and the Thickers letters.

I feel like titles are not my strong point, so I was really happy to mix and match my letter and word stickers along with some stamps and chipboard to create a fun title. The stamps from the Home For The Holidays collection from Wild Whisper worked beautifully!

Scrappy Saturday-My Love

Good morning everyone!! Sarah here this morning to share a new layout that I made scraplifting Rachel Lowel. She had so many great layouts to chose from, but since we had more of a circle theme going this month I chose one of her layouts that had a circle on it too!

Heres the layout of Rachels that I chose to scraplift:

I thought this was a beautiful layout and so sweet. I had the same collection in my stash so I thought I would use it as well. So I grabbed it from my stash and set it to the side. I already had the photos I wanted to use pulled too. Me and my hubby out and about one night.

I chose to make my cut file larger then heres, I wanted it to cover more of the background. So I cut this, to me what looks like a target with little hearts on it and backed it with a light blue cardstock. Then I adheared it to the middle of my layout.

As soon as I got the cut file backed and stuck down, I started layering papers behind my photo strip. I know Rachel chose to use one photo, but I decided to change it a bit and use a photo strip I made on my phone. I layered in papers and even some packaging behind my photo. I kept my photo to the bottom left of the die cut, like Rachel had and started to layer in some stickers.

Rachel had placed her title off to the right hand side of the photo and I followed her lead. I pulled out some of my foam thickers and added my title to the right of my photo. At this point I wanted to embellish a little more so I pulled out my 12×12 chipboard ephemera sheet and added a few hears and a little banner piece that said for you my love.

I grabbed my sticker sheet that goes with this collection and added a few more heart stickers and then went to my sparkalies!

I used a mix of Unicorns&Rainbows and Roadtrips&Sunshine. I thought they mixed well together and matched the colors in this collection so well!! I hope you liked this layout and I hope you come back and see what else all the other ladies make too!!

Make It Yours Monday~ Sweet Everyday Moments

Hello Scrappy Friends and welcome back for another Make It Yours Monday! This week, we are being inspired by our October Guest Designer, Kelly Barron!!  I was drawn to this beautiful, soft layout she created for Citrus Twist.Hello Scrappy Friends and welcome back for another Make It Yours Monday! This week, we are being inspired by our October Guest Designer, Kelly Barron!! 

I began my layout with a piece of white cardstock trimmed down a 1/4″ all around and Tutti Frutti Dazzlerz. I used a stiff bristle brush and the dazzlerz as paint. The bristles of the brush in the texture paste created a great, textured brushstroke look.

While the dazzlerz were drying, I matted my photo on 2 patterned papers, one in a pink and the other in a blue, to tie in the colors in the photo. I added a delicate doily to the back  for some more texture.  I layered strips of pink floral and blue polka dotted papers for the right hand side of the page. 

When the dazzlerz were dry, the photo was adhered with foam tape to the center of the painted area. I chose some floral ephemera and layered them around the bottom of the picture. popping some up on foam tape as well.  I layered a tag and other ephemera pieces under the photo as additional layers, and a Blessed banner to the top left corner. Tiny tile stickers and more ephemera pieces created my title.

I created another cluster in the bottom right corner with the camera and floral pieces and added a tiny word sticker. The Morning Glow sequin mix was the perfect mix to add the right about of sparkle and shine to the page. I matted the entire layout on a light pink cardstock and stitched around the edges. My journaling fit perfectly in the flower clusters under the photo and all that was left was some splatters. I used Razzledazzle Berry and Blue Jeans Vibez  to create them and I was finished!

I also have a process video for todays layout, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRPshui76_U

Thank you so much for joining me today and dont forget to stop by the shop for some of these amazing products!!  And as always,

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!!

Make it Yours Monday~Love Fall

Hello my crafty friends and welcome back to another Make it yours Monday! This week, we are being inspired by our fabulous guest designer for the month, Jenn Gagne! As soon as I saw this layout of hers, I knew it was my inspiration piece! I love the circle element as well as the little corner accents to add some interest to the page!!! .

To begin, I took a piece of vanilla cardstock and misted it with Shimmerz Sunset Strip Vibes, Tattered Angels Pumpkin Spice and Chili mists and then took my art rag and rubbed them together to create the slightly ombre/blended background.

No automatic alt text available.

I placed my photo next, so it could help aid the placement of all the other elements later on. I added a torn piece of navy blue and gold glitter cardstocks as my photo mat. They complimented the colors in the photo so well!!  I also did my title next, so I could place it exactly where I wanted it, and could work around it with the embellishments later on.

No automatic alt text available.

My favorite part was creating the leaves, using one of the new, FREE cut files available in the shop, Lovely Leaves. I used my Brother Scan N Cut and several pieces of fall colored cardstocks to cut out multiples of each leaf design, and then used my versamarker and embossing powders to add details to the large ones and my favorite glue in my fineline bottle and glitter for the smaller leaf details. No automatic alt text available.

I situated the leaves around the page to mimick the circle element of Jenn’s layout, and added some of the newest sequin mixes in the shop, Aquarius and Peachy Keeny, to add even more dimension and texture as well as great pops of color!!

No automatic alt text available.

I added a few of the smaller leaves around my photo and my journaling to the left of the title, just under the photo.

Image may contain: text

To finish my page, I added some splatters to the leaf ring around the page, using the same colors I used for the background, as well as some Navy color shine. I mounted the entire layout on a piece of soft orange cardstock and added a doodle-y boarder around the edge to add some definition.No automatic alt text available.

A few strips of nave and gold cardstocks to the top left and bottom right corner & the date finished off my fall wreath layout.

I got really excited when I saw the finished page!! It’s probably one of my most favorite layouts in a LONG time!! I hope you enjoyed my process and layout today and will stop by the shop for some of these amazing products!!!! When you do,

Scraplifting Saturday | Jen Schow!!

@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @dearlizzy @americancrafts @pinkpaislee @anytangerine @dearlizzy @prettylittlestudiollc @

Good afternoon everyone, it’s Sarah here today!! As you know were scraplifting the amazing Jen Schow this week! I chose this layout of hers.

@jenschow @spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff, #craftyjenschow #americancrafts #scrapbooking #scraplift #spigelmomscraps

I started by choosing my photos. These are my boys a few years ago fishing with there papa. They had a blast and have loved it ever since! I wanted a lighter background then Jen had chosen, so I went through and found this cloud paper and then dipped into ​my Pretty Little Studio stash and grabbed Lets Go. I loved that the colors went well together and that there were nice pops of yellow.

I pulled out the paper with the diagonal strip and used it as my base for my pictures and journaling cards. I matted my pictures and journaling cards on American Crafts white cardstock. I did this 1st and made sure I had my pics and cards where I wanted them, then matted them onto the diagonal patterned paper.

​I added my journaling to the bottom right jounaling card after playing with my type writer. I know Jen had had journaling on bother her cards, but I just added mine to one. Along with a label sticker and a little punched out circle that said, you are awesome. I also added a flair button up in the center like she did too.

I moved up the right side of the pictures and added a tab, along with a few little labels.

Moving to the top of my layout to add a title like Jen had. I pulled out the last of my feltie clouds. I loved that they went perfect with the cloud paper. I know Jen used them too, But I really just love them! I pulled a white tag with a light blue grid and added it to the top, added a label and a word sticker into the center of that that says, this moment. I added my clouds across the top and started playing with my Ferris Wheel sequins. The sides and shades of blue in these sequins are just fantastic!! One of my favorite right now!! After playing with my pretties for a while, I finished off my layout by adding my title, Lip Rippin’. lol
This month has been a blast for me! I really enjoyed scraplifting all these amazing ladies!! All were so intimidating but oh so fun! I hope you enjoyed my scraplift of Jen!
