Hi! Karla here today with a cute and fun Halloween layout using the Morning Glow, Lisa’s Starry Nights (I’m seriously addicted to these ;0 ) and Peachy Keen. I started off by using a sketch from the October Sketchy Challenge at the Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine blog and grabbed a Carta Bella ‘Haunted’ paper pack and some cute pics of my two littles a few years ago.
I splattered some pretty mists from the Tattered Angels Man Cave Calendar Kit, which includes 4 different mists in a pack. I love the bright lime green! I picked out sequins from each mix that would coordinate with the papers and photos and used Glossy Accents to adhere them.
A few embellishments from a Jillibean Soup diecut ephemera pack finished off my page.
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,
Good morning everyone!! Sarah here to share with you another fall themed layout using some awesome sequins!
My youngest son is a goof to the max and when it started getting cool here this year, he curled up in a chair with his hat on and a few blankets and took a good long, snuggled up nap. He always loves the cool weather cause he likes to be all curled up in blanket and beanies! lol So that was the photo I decided to scrap. I pulled out some stuff from my stash and started to play.
So, some how I had managed to get a black squigle on the side of my cardstock and instead of tossing it or covering it up, I decided to add it in as part of the layout and added black outlining to the papers on the layout, I was happy with the way it turned out.
I added some different sized squares to the background and popped the picture and its photo mat up, to add a little dimension. I did the background with the larger pieces of paper, because I knew I wasnt going to add a ton to this layout. I started know where I wanted the focus to be and adding the large squares, still allowed me to have multiple colors and patterns showing the way I wanted. After I had the papers and photo where I wanted, I moved on to adding some embellishments.
I started by adding a tag to the left of the photo and then moved to the right of the photo and made a cluster there too. Since my son was napping in this picture, I went through Crate papers, Wonder collection and pulled embellishments that had to do with sleep. I added one that said Dream over to the right with a few other things, including a cork ampersand.
I added my title to the left of the photo and then started on a embellishment cluster. I started out with the little clock and layered in some tags and a cute little heart. I added a few word phrases from a Tim Holtz pack that I had and then pulled out my pretties! I pulled out Be true 2 you sequin mim and Shooting cork stars and went to town!! I placed them across the entire top of the layout and moved down to the bottom, thinning them out to one point at the end.
I absolutely love the way this layout turned out and I hope you enjoyed it too!!

Hello! It’s Karla here today with a cute baby page, and I’m scraplifting the most awesome Kelly Barron! She’s been our Guest Designer here all month long, and I just love her style!! Here’s the page she designed and you can see my scraplifted layout below. All the info on her pretty page can be found on her blog post HERE.
I’m really trying to get more of Erica’s baby pics into her album, so I grabbed these cute (well I understand if not everyone finds them cute 😉 ) pics of her with food on her head. Yup, you know it’s true love when you can watch hours of your baby doing the same thing over and over and never get tired of it, or you see her with food on her head and, well, you just have to take a photo – or three, lol! Erica, who is 5 now, even helped me do the stitching across the corners with the sewing machine. I grabbed some of the new Lisa’s Starry Night and Morning Glow sequin mixes and the Gold Burlap String to coordinate with my page.
The older Echo Park Made From Scratch collection was just right for this page, and you can see how wonderfully the textured vintage Architextures potholder sticker from 7gyspies fits in with it!
I loved the way Kelly used some smaller stickers as part of her title and found some in my stash that would work for me too. I added another of the Architextures mason jar stickers alongside some stickers from the EP collection.
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.
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 coloured the sweet little scarecrow digi images from Bugaboo Stamps and added some glittery Stickles before popping them up with foam dots on this pretty Echo Park paper – A Perfect Autumn. It’s one of my fav fall collections this year!
I love the way this little guy is peeking out of the circle! The Thanksgiving sentiment from a Pretty Cute stamps set was perfect for the banner tag.
On the back of the boxes I added a little name tag diecut from a Stitched Tag Die from Your Next Stamp and stamped with a pretty scroll stamp from the Pink & Main Thankful set.
I’ve created a process video to show you how I made these fun little boxes – You’ll also get to see what’s inside them!! They are quick and easy and would also work great for little stocking stuffers!! You can check out the video HERE or click below.
Hi friends! Karla here with a lovely Fall card ready to give out for Thanksgiving! Here in Canada it falls on this Monday coming. Seriously, I don’t know how all my US friends can wait till November 😉 We are having friends and family over on Sunday for a big turkey dinner and I definitely wanted to get some cards ready to give out. Fall is my favourite time of year, and I am really loving the Echo Park ‘A Perfect Autumn’ papers. I grabbed some of the new Peachy Keeny and Morning Glow sequin mixes to add shiny sequiny goodness! Those tiny peach flowers are so adorable!!
I combined the pretty pumpkin digi stamps from Craftin’ Desert Divas, printed on kraft cardstock, with a sentiment stamp from Pretty Cute Stamps and some pretty scrolls from Pink & Main stamped with Distress Oxide Ink. A Spellbinders diecut created a pretty panel for my focal image.
Inside, I used a couple stamps from a wonderful Pink & Main stamp set – Thankful. I love the Autumn Blessings sentiment!
