Smile by Evi

Hello my scrappy friends.  Its Evi, with another bright and bold scrapbook layout.  I went a little cray cray with the glitter for this one.  The picture is of my wonderful family during a renewal of their vows celebration.  It was a wonderful time with family and friends.

I started with the Dear Lizzy Serendipity stencil with clear gel medium and applied black glitter on top while it was wet.  This takes awhile to dry.  And be warned, this was a lot of glitter and clean up difficult.

I then used Shimmerz Coloringz in Pink Stiletto and sprayed it directly to the card stock in the lower left corner.  I wanted the area I was placing my photo to pop.

I splattered Egg noggin, Jeni B Bleu and Saphharie Vibez all around the area as well to add more color.  The embellishments are from a MAMBI chipboard sticker pack and my large title is from Pebbles.

I then add Chasing Azul and Rockin Pink Ombre sequins also available in the shop for added detail.  If you would like a discount on our purchase use code Evi15.  Thank you so much.


Hello my fellow crafty peeps! Have you ever found a photo and did not want to scrap it?  Well I did, for years I did not want to scrap the photo below, but I finally decided to do it this time around.  It is a photo of my husband and me during our martial art years…Lol. This is just too funny!

I used a few products from the Spiegelmom shop and I even altered a wood veneer!  Take a look below.

I used some Pandora’s Ombre sequins and they are just awesome!  The combination of colors is just beautiful.

Here is another close up of the altered title, which I used some AcriTonez in white from the SpiegelMom Shop!  I used 2 coats and then I used some stickles to give it some sparkle and some washi tape to keep a straight line while painting on the wood veneer.  The white acrylic star is from one of my Felicity Jane kits.

A touch of journaling to give it a short story about the photo.

Here is another close up of those beautiful sequins…you must get these, they are awesome! The mist I used is called Blue Jeans Vibrez and that is also in the Spiegelmom Shop. The rubber embellishment is from my Felicity Jane kit along with the papers.


Thank you for stopping by and be sure to get to the Spiegelmom Shop for some goodies of your own.  Oh and be sure to use the code Felicia15 to get 15% off your first order!  Have a great and marvelous day!

What About Wednesday: Using a Spring Colored papers

Aloha!!! I have been spending time looking through photos I took last year and didn’t scrap yet. Seeing what stories I still want to tell in my albums. It has been fun looking through the years memories.

For this layout I decided to scrap about our trip to the pumpkin patch. This was my kid’s first time going to a pumpkin farm and picking out a pumpkin to carve for Halloween. I had lots of pictures of the brightly colored pumpkins and vibrant rich colors of all the other local produce. Bins full overflowing of amazingly fresh pumpkins, squash and gourds,

In the end I ended up picking a close up picture of a ladybug on my daughter’s hand. I love when I get to take pictures of my kid’s interacting with nature. Cayden wanted to keep that ladybug. Take him home. Take care of him by feeding him and giving him water to drink. I love how children are so willing to learn and appreciate the little things around them, like that lady bug. These are moments I don’t want to forget.

Scrapbooking gives me the opportunity to do that. Telling these moments I would definitely forget as we get busier and the kid’s grow older and become more interested in other things.

I debated pulling out some older Autumn colored papers for this layout. The rich colors would really help the story of this Autumn story. Only except Cayden was wearing a bright pink zip up sweater and that was in the background of most of this picture.

This year many of the newer lines have lots of bright springtime colors, more so than some past years after CHA. These colors are fun and cheerful. They are happy and really inviting after a long winter.

I knew these types of colors and patterns would be perfect for this layout. I decided to use a Clique kit that had lots Shimelle’s little by little collection. I wanted to use the playful and bright theme to help tell my story.

I layered my papers and attached them using my sewing machine with a teal thread. I added stitching to the sides papers for added texture.

I also added a medium shipping tag to a glassine bag. To the tag I added a hot pink ampersand . All of these were held in by more stitching. I knew I wouldn’t be adding my journaling to the tag but that you would be able to see it’s contents inside the glassine bag. I also added some puffy stickers and die cuts to the top of the tag, along with a mini clothespin. Seriously these clothes pins are so much fun to use.

I wanted to add something delicate to help tie in that fact that this little tiny bug is so fragile. I layered the picture with a wood grain paper and the doily. On that corner of the picture I added some die cuts, a puffy sticker and some wood chips I bought from the clearance section of the store.

Also to add more texture I used the cork butterflies . I stitched through the middle part of the body to add something fun and cool. I may be a little obsessed with using my new sewing machine lately. It looks so cool though, I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon.

For the title I added an acrylic phrase at the bottom of the photo, I used it along with the phrase on a die cut tag at the corner. I love the way it is layered together and fits snuggly around.

I sprinkled My Clementine Sequins around the cork butterflies. I wanted to give the illusion that the butterflies are flying just like the lady bug does.

I wrote the journaling around the big layer of patterned paper. I really like how the journaling emphasizes the big cluster of papers and layers.


Here is a look at the finished layout.


I hope you are encouraged to pull out papers that have a different theme from your photo and use them in a different way. Also don’t forget to add texture to your layouts.

I also hope you stop by the Facebook group and share the layouts and projects you are working on with the SpiegelMom Scraps products you have.

I can’t wait to see you around.





Butterfly Charm 8.5×11 Layout with Sarah


Hello SMS fans!  It’s Sarah on the blog today with another 8.5×11 layout to share with you.  I have been loving doing layouts again, and with all of the new goodies in the SMS shop, I have been feeling very inspired!  Here is my layout for today:

I had been hoarding the beautiful Millie & June collection from Fancy Pants for a long time, and after I saw the amazing new Pandora’s Ombre Sequin Mix,  I knew I had to crack into it!   I started with a 12×12 piece of American Crafts Textured Card Stock.  I cut it down to 8.5×11 and grabbed my Millie & June goodies, a bunch of stuff from the shop, and a pack of Chipboard Butterflies from Creative Embellishments and got started.

I popped my 4×6 photo up on adhesive foam dots and tucked a 4″ White Paper Lace Doily under it.  I then filled a Mini Glassine Bag full of the Pandora’s Sequin Mix and sewed it shut with my sewing machine.  I glued one of the butterflies from Creative Embellishments on top of it and added the “Charm” word embellishment from My Mind’s Eye,

I tucked in bits of ephemera, tags and puffy stickers from Millie & June and adhered them with my EZ Runner Grand.  I added a tiny tassel from Maggie Holmes Gather by winding it onto a mini gold paper clip from Michael’s.  I also added enamel asterisks from Dear Lizzy enamel Thickers, gold sparkle hearts from Crate Paper Cute Girl and puffy dots from Mille & June.

I finished it all off with a generous splattering of Heidi Shine in Gold.  I added the date using my Becky Higgins Roller Date Stamper and Staz On Ink in Black.

I hope you have enjoyed my latest layout!  I sure have been enjoying doing them again!  Look for more from me on the blog again next week.

Make It Yours Monday~ Bunk Beds

Hello Scrappy Friends!! It’s Lisa and I’m here with another Make It Yours Monday. Today’s layout was inspired just yesterday by a wonderful layout I saw on Facebook by Madeleine Lee. I absolutely love all aspects of her page! Those strips, the sequins! I sat down immediately to create my page, I was so drawn to it!

For my page, I used a piece of yellow stripped paper, 05, from Page Evan’s Fancy Free to back my white cardstock. I then had a blast with my Shimmerz, using Bamboo Leaf Spritz, Deep Blue Sea Vibez, Jeni B Bleu Vibez, Mandarin Mai Tai Coloringz, Pretty In Pink Coloringz, Vibez in Razzldazzle Berry and Glorious Day Vibez!!! I splattered a bit of each color onto my background to create a colorful base for the rest of my page.

I made good use of my scraps box, finding all the right colors without having to cut into any new papers! I used a strip of scrap laying horizontal with some adhesive to hold my strips into place when I had them just right, and then used my sewing machine to stitch them into place.

For my photo layers, I started with a medium glassine bag from the shop, a strip of gold foiled paper from my scraps box, a piece of torn vellum and a pretty purple scrap that was the perfect size. I tucked a 4″ doily into the layers before I adhered them together. I placed the photo onto the page, slightly to the left.

On Trend 2 ephemera was the perfect place to start for embellishments, they had a fun tropical feel to them. I placed a coral heart with fun foil polka dots on top of the doily in the lower left of my photo. I tucked one of the gold pineapples just behind the doily to finish that cluster. I added my journaling to a manila shipping tag and tucked it into glassine bag, the bottom layer of the photo layers!! I had a pretty blue piece of ric rak on my desk that was the perfect color and length to finish the tag.

Another pineapple in the top right corner of the photo was a fun way to start my next cluster. I added a tiny cork confetti heart and a yellow flower from the Happy Dance sequin mix, the flowers have a great tropical fee to them!

My title fit perfectly to right of my photo, and it was fun mixing the two fonts to create it. A Happy Day flower fit perfectly into the title also.

Then, it was time for the SPARKLE!!! I used multiple sequin mixes  to create 2 clusters, in the top left and bottom right corners of my page. Pocket Full of Posies, Rockin’ Pink Ombre, Strawberry Bubblegum, Sweet Pea and Happy Dance all complemented my photo and papers perfectly, so I used a few from each. You can never have to much sparkle!!!!!

Thank you so much for stopping my today for another Make it Yours Monday! Dont forget, use LISA15 for 15% off all your Spiegelmom Scraps purchases.

Scraplift Sunday with Crafty Meggy

Hello SpiegelMom Scraps fans!! This is Megan and I am back with another Scraplift post! I am so excited about this one!! I was on facebook last week and I found an amazing layout in one of the scrappy facebook groups I’m a member of:


This layout was made by Amanda-Jayne Baldwin and I just absolutely LOVE the pretty heart that’s water colored in the background.

This is the layout I made and I love it too!!

I am so horrible at making up titles, but my fellow design team member, Khristina is amazing at them so I asked her for some help and this is what she came up with. I love it!

I had so much fun using all these hearts on my layout! I love the I Cork U hearts in the store. I had the wood veneer hearts in my stash, as well as the resin pink one. The heart flair I just purchase from one of our fun collab ladies back in February, KJKareen. I absolutely love her etsy shop!

I totally love this embellishment cluster area on the layout with this cute flair, the hearts and the fun sequins!! I used a couple different sequin mixes on this layout A Mermaid’s Tale and the new Pandora’s Ombre.
