Fall Mini & LGSketchy Sketch with Rachel

Hope y’all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Time relaxing with family is such a gift, and I’m cherishing it! This post is picture heavy because I’m SO excited to share this fall mini album. Incorporated in my album is a full page using this week’s Let’s Get Sketchy sketch.

Target always has has smaller binders that fit 6×8 page protectors really well – and depending on the brand you purchase, you may only need to punch a few more holes. #minialbum #autumn #scrapbooking #papercrafting #shimmerz #sequins #spiegelmomscraps #LGSketchy #sketch #scrapchallenge #wermemorykeepers I got those gold glitter alphas and wood veneer leaves at Target too.. swoon. It looks perfect against that wood grain specialty paper I’ve been hoarding forever.#minialbum #autumn #scrapbooking #papercrafting #shimmerz #sequins #spiegelmomscraps #LGSketchy #sketch #scrapchallenge #wermemorykeepers

#minialbum #autumn #scrapbooking #papercrafting #shimmerz #sequins #spiegelmomscraps #LGSketchy #sketch #scrapchallenge #wermemorykeepers I’ve included lots of Crate Paper products in this mini – from old and new lines. Behind the “Give Thanks” title is a little Shimmerz Dazzlers in Coral Me Crazy. I love the added texture.dsc_0177

#minialbum #autumn #scrapbooking #papercrafting #shimmerz #sequins #spiegelmomscraps #LGSketchy #sketch #scrapchallenge #wermemorykeepers One of my favorite details in this mini is that shaker pocket filled with exclusive sequinsFalling Leaves.http://letsgetsketchy.blogspot.com/If you follow my layouts, you’ll notice that leaf looks familiar – I used lots of them here. They’re a beautiful mix of these Shimmerz products (1, 2, 3)#minialbum #autumn #scrapbooking #papercrafting #shimmerz #sequins #spiegelmomscraps #LGSketchy #sketch #scrapchallenge #wermemorykeepers I made a filler card with a stencil and Mari-Gold Digger texture paste and I love how it turned out. Aren’t those pictures I took of one of my besties fun!?#minialbum #autumn #scrapbooking #papercrafting #shimmerz #sequins #spiegelmomscraps #LGSketchy #sketch #scrapchallenge #wermemorykeepers It was so fun to work with a sketch created for a larger scale on a 6×8 layout! The title is Dear Lizzy and the scraps of paper are mostly from the Gather collection. The sequins I used on this page are an exclusive mix, Mocha Mint Dream. And I finished off with a cloud feltie.#minialbum #autumn #scrapbooking #papercrafting #shimmerz #sequins #spiegelmomscraps #LGSketchy #sketch #scrapchallenge #wermemorykeepers

I loved documenting these fall months in a mini, almost like a December Daily. Thanks for stopping in – I hope it’s inspired you to create!

Enjoy Life – Let’s Get Sketchy + SMS Team Up!

Hello!

Today I get to share my interpretation of this week’s sketch! You may have heard, we at SpiegelMom Scraps have teamed up with our friends over at Let’s Get Sketchy for the month of November. You can visit their site for the sketch or check it out here in the 15 minutes 2 Scrap Facebook group.#SpiegelMomScraps #exclusivesequins #lgsketchy #scrapbookingsketches #letsgetsketchy #scrapbooking #shimmerz #shimmerzpaints @shimmerzpaints @spiegelmom_scraps @wordsandpaperscraps @lgsketchyThe fun sketch Sara designed included butterflies and no matter how hard I try, I can’t figure out how to incorporate butterflies into my projects. Ugh! Strangely, I think it’s because I don’t have kids yet. So in place of those I’ve included some heart punches. My whole post was inspired by the gorgeous new sequin mix in the shop: 2 Cool 4 U. I absolutely love this mix! #SpiegelMomScraps #exclusivesequins #lgsketchy #scrapbookingsketches #letsgetsketchy #scrapbooking #shimmerz #shimmerzpaints @shimmerzpaints @spiegelmom_scraps @wordsandpaperscraps @lgsketchyAnd while many of the mixes in the shop coordinate well with popular lines – I’m on a crafting budget, so I’ve chosen to use some papers from my stash. I stitched my punched hearts onto some paper from the Dear Lizzy Saturday collection, backed against white cardstock. I then splattered some Shimmerz Vibez in Egg Noggin’ for a little shine. I layered this picture of my sweet German Shepherd onto some vellum and gold-foil polka dotted paper.

That triangle shaped shaker pocket full of sequins found its place stitched on the corner of my patterned paper. To make this: I first trimmed an extra page protector scrap into my desired triangle shape. I then used my Fuse Tool to seal the sequins in.

I used a few pieces of wood veneer on my page including a mini clothespin, We R Memory Keepers “Honey I’m Home” title piece, and a heart from my stash. #SpiegelMomScraps #exclusivesequins #lgsketchy #scrapbookingsketches #papercrafting #letsgetsketchy #scrapbooking #shimmerz #shimmerzpaints @shimmerzpaints @spiegelmom_scraps @wordsandpaperscraps @lgsketchyTo finish off my page I included a cloud feltie from the shop, and a brad from the Simple Stories “Posh” collection. I added my journaling and then I was done! Stay tuned this month for a new sketch every week!

My Girl Baby Layout with Guest Designer Karla

Hey there crafty friends! Karla here today, and I’m super excited to be Guest Designing here today- what an honor! Today, I’m sharing a layout that I made of my youngest daughter, Erica, when she was just a year old. Wow – time flies – she’s now almost 5!

I started off choosing a sketch and layered on papers and stickers from the Echo Park Petticoats and Pinstripes collection by Lori Whitlock. I just love these lovely bright papers, and the pretty sequins from the Pinky Pie, Spring Blooms and Let’s Be Mermaids Sequin Mixes from the SpiegelMom Scraps Shop were the perfect embellishments! I love using a sketch as a starting point, then choosing my photos, papers and embellishments.

These wonderful Cork Chevrons are so awesome for layering! I pulled out some paper ephemera diecuts from a My Mind’s Eye All Things Girl package to add to my layout. I love the vintage feel of these diecuts!

I used the tiny silver stars from the Pinky Pie collection on this pretty crown, which I layered over a sticker from the EP collection pack. I added some handwritten journaling and stamped the date with an Amy Tan date stamp. I love that a lot of the paper packs come with coordinated journaling cards in them. Even if I choose not to use them in a pocket page, they are great to use on a layout!

These sweet little flower sequins in the Pinky Pie Sequin Mix were just perfect to layer on the flower sticker. They are subtle and add a pretty shine! You can see some of the stitching that I added across my page. Erica was very excited to #1 – have another layout of her own baby pics and #2 – help me with the stitching!

You can see my process video here on YouTube or click below:

Here’s a look at the beautiful embellishments I used on my layout, which you can find at the SpiegelMom Scraps Shop:

‘B’ With Laura

Hello there!  It’s Laura here today sharing my take on the Facebook challenge for October.

Here is the sketch I designed:

@spieglemomscraps #spiegelmomscraps #sequins #scrapbooksketch

And this is my take on it:

@spiegelmomscraps @maggieholmes @cratepaper #spiegelmomscraps #maggieholmes #cratepaper

I stayed quite true to the sketch.  The supplies are from Maggie Holmes’ Gather, and SpiegleMom Scraps of course!

@spieglemomscraps @maggieholmes @cratepaper #spiegelmomscraps #maggieholmes #cratepaper #sequins

I’ve used sequins from Mint Chip and Believe In You.  I’ve used a couple of doilies too, one coloured up with ink sprays.

@spieglemomscraps @maggieholmes @cratepaper #spiegelmomscraps #maggieholmes #cratepaper #sequins

I love the effect of the strung sequins wrapped around the frame.  This is something I want to expand on in a future layout!

Make It Yours Monday

make it yours monday

9-19-w-footer

I’m SO excited to be back with another Make It Yours Monday!!! This week’s layout is special to me! It’s an original sketch, my first ever!!!

my-sketch

My layout was inspired by my living room photo display…

6955265e59c16152d8cc5cb6613e36e7

I Started with a piece of wood grain paper from Simple Stories. I cut out the center and backed my photo with the inside piece. I layered a Medium Glassine Bag under the matted photo and then layered another piece of wood grain paper as the final mat.  I adhered 3 Normandy Doilies, cut in half, to the top and bottom of the matted photo for some texture.

14316835_10210356250123577_7387649189751259866_n

I set aside the photo cluster and began to work on my background. I cut down a piece of white American Crafts cardstock to about 10×10 and splattered some Shimmerz Coloringz in  Heidi Ho Blue and Pretty in Pink across the center as well as some Gold Heidi Shine.

Next, I moved onto the messier (my favorite) part. I started with some Spun Sugar Dazzlers and Rose Gold glitter paste from Bo Bunny. I used a burlap stencil from Tim Holtz and created my 3 areas of mixed media. After it was dry, I edged the white paper with Walnut Stain Distress ink.

14359224_10210356205642465_6566022140248507998_n

From there, I adhered my matted photo to the center of the page. I tucked a shipping tag into the bag layer behind my photo for my journaling.

Then, the FUN stuff! The embellishment’s for this layout were so fun! I used a scrap strip of the wood grain paper to make a cluster just above the photo and attached a scrap of doily left over from the other cut pieces from earlier.  This cluster also got some of the awesome Cloudy Day Felties and a Cork Star that I added some dot details to make it look like a starfish! Some green sequins from the pretty mix A Day In The Woods and some blue from the beautiful Lets Be Mermaids mix finished off this cluster.

14344870_10210356207802519_6405759811220375378_n

I added some more Cork Stars, again with the dot details, to the bottom left of the photo with some sequins from the same mixes and a wood veneer star. The top right corner also got the same fun little details. I added my title right to the photo and I was done!

14358816_10210356206802494_6707615841973686896_n  14370247_10210356207442510_6605754924433721064_n

Sketch Sunday with Crafty Meggy: Play on you Birthday!

Hello scrappy friends! I am changing things up a bit today and using the sketch that Lisa picked for the monthly challenge in the facebook group. I’ll be back in September with another Scraplift Sunday, though!

Here’s the sketch and the moodboard:

sketchsunday sketchsundaymoodboard

I really liked using these two pieces for my layout inspiration today. Here’s what I came up with:

sketchsunday20footer

I wanted to use that blue polka dot glassine bag that you can see behind the big focal photo in the middle. I decided to play off the blue color in the moodboard.

sketchsunday20-5

I have 3 little clusters on this layout. This one I used blue and white twine and a heart cork piece from the shop.

sketchsunday20-2

For the title I used the American Crafts Thickers called ‘Fancy’ from the Fancy Free collection, some Teresa Collins little aphas and the Fancy Pants Atwell puffy stickers.

sketchsunday20-3

For the top cluster I used the adorable Cork-Fetti Hearts mix. Isn’t this little banner of hearts just perfect?!! I love it!! I had the ‘Fancy Free’ puffy stickers and the word ‘yay’ worked on this layout because my son is opening and playing with a birthday present. I also added some twine and Gold Sequin Confetti. In this photo they are reflecting the light a ton!

sketchsunday20-4

Here’s a better view of the confetti sequins. I wanted to used them in place of mist in the sketch and I really love how it turned out.
