Make It Yours Monday~ Step By Step

Step by Step, oh baby!!! Sorry for the song stuck in your head now, but it’s the perfect way to describe my layout today!!! I was inspired by the incredible Katty Miranda’s mixed media and this song title!! 

This layout started with a piece of Bazzill marshmallow cardstock being layered on some sky blue and Navy blue cardstocks. Then, the fun began! I used a bunch of Shimmerz mists and the packaging technique to create my background. Deep Blue Sea Vibez, Jeni B Bleu Vibez, Cotton Candy Spritz, Pink Stilettos Coloringz and Mandarin Mai Tai Coloringz all complimented my photo and created this fun watercolory background! After a few splatters of each color mist,  I used a random dotted stencil next with more shimmerz, but this time I used the new  paste-eez in Salt of the Earth to add a bit of texture to the background. 

For my photos, I backed them with complimenting colors to the background. Pink, light blue, and a navy played well with the photos and background. An 8″ doily from the shop backing the mat’s was the perfect way to separate the mat’s from the background. 

I used thickers to add my title to the bottom of the page, under the photos. Step-by-Step! Yup, there I go again! Love You Tons and Hot Pink Heart Felties  scattered around the page brought some added color and texture and some Be True 2 U sequins brought the sparkle!

I hope you will Step-by-Step on over to the shop and pick up some of the great products I used in todays layout. When you do…

 

Fuse It Fun Day- Teacher Gift

Happy Sunday scrappers! So glad you joined me for Fuse It Fun Day! I have been dying to make a Coptic bound book and the end of the school year presented me with the perfect excuse to get creating! I wanted to make my son’s teacher a gift, and a blank journal seemed rather appropriate!

The first thing I did was watch a bunch of youtube videos, if you search “Coptic bound book” there are tons of tutorials, careful, this is a time suck, I got lost on youtube for a few hours!

Once I felt comfortable with the tutorials, I started my notebook. I picked out some paper from my stash. I still had so much of the Pink Paislee Switchboard collection, someone gifted me the paper pack a while back. So I wanted to use that up and it was perfect for this project. I made my signatures with printer paper and patterned paper. Then I wrapped my chipboard covers with more of the patterned papers.

I knew I wanted to add a special touch to this notebook, making it personalized from our family. So I created a shaker dashboard with my son’s school photo. I used the Wedding Bells sequin mix, and it added such a crisp clean pop to this shaker page! I love the white sequins and the silver stars, but the iridescent sequins take it over the top!

When I added the cover, I included the shaker page! It worked beautifully! I also added a few buttons to the spine, not over the top, just a few. I think next time I will add more charms and such, I really like how that looks! I love how this little notebook came out, and I can’t wait to make more of these books!

Creative Cards With Karla – Motivational Retro Card Set!

Hi there! Karla here today with a set of motivational cards to get you moving and excited about life! Since our theme here on the SMS blog this month is ‘Take Us Back June’ we’ve been thinking up lots of retro inspiration for you – and these cute workout animals from Pretty Cute Stamps wearing their adorable headbands totally brought me back to the ’20 Minute Workout’ videos of the 80’s! I’m pretty sure my sister and I wore our own headbands and bodysuits while we worked out in front of the TV 😉 I thought the sentiments included in the set were perfect to create a trio of cards that would be great to give to anyone who is working hard on something.

I recently found this fun retro paper pad at Michaels and thought the images would be awesome for this month’s theme! How cool is this cassette?! After I added layers of paper and some shiny washi tape on each card, I used a button and some of the wonderful Raspberry Burlap String from the SpiegelMom Scraps shop as well as a cork star from the Shooting Cork Stars package.

I grabbed A Mermaid’s Tale, Morning Dew Drops, You Are My Sunshine, and What’s Up Buttercup sequin mixes to embellish my cards – I just love mixing and matching!!

I stamped these cuties on watercolor paper and used some Mermaid Markers from Jane Davenport and Prima Watercolor Pencils to colour them in while the kids were playing in the park. I had so much fun creating these, and I hope whoever receives them will feel like they can accomplish whatever they want!

Here’s a look at the inside of each card and the fun and motivational message that coordinates with the front! Of course I had to add some gorgeous sequins inside too!

Talent Tuesday

Hello everyone its Heather here for your talent Tuesday! I hope you all are having an amazing day! This month I was asked to be a guest designer for SMS! I am so excited to share some of my projects using the amazing products you can find in the shop. This month’s mood board and theme was 80’s and 90’s! Well I was born in 1987 so i don’t really remember anything from the 80’s and not a whole lot from the early 90’s. But I do remember the the boy band craze and it was in full force in the 90’s! So I decided to do a layout with all of the boybands from the 90’s.

This layout was so much fun creating! I so enjoyed using the products from the SMS! First I used some super old Bo Bunny papers and cut them into little strips and layered some behind my photo. I printed a photo of boy bands from google. It has all the greats such as Nsync, Hanson, Boyz 2 Men, 98 degrees and many more! After cutting the strips and lining them up I used some black thread and sewed down the middle with my sewing machine. I used a sketch I found on pintrest for this layout.

Next I used the Morning Dew Drops and placed them all over the strips of paper. These Morning Dew Drops are seriously perfect! They add just the right amount of sparkle to any project! Of course I also had to use some of SMS sequins on my project! I used a mix of Sparkle Power and Purple Rain.

Then I took some of the Love U Tons in white and sprayed them with some black mist so i could bring in some more black elements to this page. I love getting the white felt because then I can make them match any project just by using some of my mists! I took on of the big ones and a small on and layered them on top of each other!

Lastly was my title! I used the Hash it out from the shop. This cork embellishments are so much fun to add a little extra something to your pages! So my title is #boybands. I love that i had the cork board paper that matched with the Hash it out! I hope you all enjoyed my layout for this week and I hope you all will head over to the shop to find all of the wonderful products in the shop! Thank you so much for stopping by today!

 

Make It Yours Monday~Summer Girls

Happy Monday everyone. I hope you had a great weekend. I am here to share my 90’s influenced layout. My take on this theme is to find songs from the era and try to make them work as my titles!!! I made the LFO Song “Summer Girls” my song title and decided to give it my own spin! 

I began by using a piece of woodgrain paper and mounted a piece of trimmed down kraft cardstock. I tore some vellum and layered it under the sand and shell pattern paper. I sprinkled various colors from the Just Beachin’ It mix throughout the sand to create some sparkley beach sand. Adding more torn vellum to create the foamy break between sea and sand, I layered the wavy sea paper on top and then used some great sequin mixes to make the sea shine in the sunshine! Light blue sequins from the Hey Kiddo mix, Teal from the Aqua Marine Dream and the dark blue’s from Be True 2 U made the sea sparkle.

Next, for the sky portion,  layered a few torn strips of cloud paper to create a fluffy sky look. I used some Morning Dew Drops sequins to make some of the clouds stand out. A few corky chevron arrows help draw attention to the photo. To bring some sunshine to the page, I used a free cut file from the shop and the negative piece from the cut made a great sun stencil!!! Lemon Drop Dazzlerz is the perfect sunny yellow, so I used it through my homemade stencil in the top left corner. To make the sun really shine, I added some Summer Paradise sequins while the texture paste was still wet.

The sweet photo was mounted on some pink glitter paper and then backed with the same woodgrain from the layout mat. I added the title to the lower right corner under the photo in a navy blue color, keeping with the blue’s! The title was my nod to the 90’s, from a great summer song from my teen’s!

Sunshiny happiness is my challenge to you this week, and for bonus points, Stick with the 90’s theme!!! Pick up all the great products I used here today and….

 

Fuse It Fun Day- How Rude

Hey y’all! I am LOVING the throw back theme this month, are you guys inspired by the 80’s and 90’s? I always think of music and TV shows when I think of the 90’s. I am 30, so I was fairly young in the 90’s but the music is still my go to Spotify play list! I also recently binged on Fuller House (anyone else?). So the 90’s are fresh on my mind!

The start of summer break has reminded me that I have barely scrapped any school photos from this year. My summer goal is to have my son’s Kindergarten photos scrapped before he goes to first grade! Looking at the pictures we took on his first day I found a gem, my daughter photobombing his photo shoot, and his look of disdain! It was too perfect not to scrap, and I knew I had the perfect title! I think this layout is a happy mix of two of my faves, Full House and Saved by the Bell, what do you think?


I stamped the background with a sprinkles stamp from Pinkfresh Studio. Then I used the Fuse to create little shape shakers to sprinkle about. Instead of using my usual clear page protectors, I used colored dividers (because we all know the 90s were about big bursts of color and fun patterns!).

 

 

I love the way the Hey Kiddo! sequins look behind different colors, but that deep blue needed to be spread across the page on it’s own a bit!

I hope you like my take on this super fun theme, can’t wait to see your throw back layouts!

 

As always, thanks for stopping by on Fuse It Fun Day, stop by the shop and don’t forget to get your discount!

Scrappy Friday – A Home Decor Giveaway

Hello everyone,

Let’s start June with a Home Decor!

As you probably know, our June theme is a flashback to the 80’s and 90’s…. Thinking back to the eighties from a French point of view is related to an optimistic decade when everything seemed possible and America seemed to be emerging as an example to follow or to be inspired from. America appeared to be the land where your dreams may come true….And I must confess the USA made me dream a lot as a child of the 80’s!

That immediately made me want to use some of my Joli Mess’s cards and project life cards from the Cassie’s capsule. Since I had some spare frames, I decided to use three of them, and to match these cards with the Spiegelmomscraps sequins.

In the first frame, I used a “C’est possible” (It is possible) card, and match it with the Salt of the Earth sequins. For the second frame, the card says ” Ne t’arrête jamais 2 rêver” (Never stop Dreaming). I decorated it with 2 cork stars and the lovely gold stardust sequins.

The third and last frame asks us to “Imagine”, and I matched it with the Just Bleachin’ it sequins as well as cork and felt clouds).This project is very simple and can add a decorating touch in your home in less than no time!

And the good news is…. These frames can be yours! Just leave one comment below before the next Scrappy Friday (June 9th) and I’ll pick a random winner amongst all the comments!

Fingers crossed!

Love from France!

Christine
