Aloha!! It’s Hannah here with you this fine Wednesday. Can you believe this is our last sketch with Let’s Get Sketchy and our team up with them. I have had tons of fun seeing their layouts and all of our’s. Don’t forget to hop over to their blog and check out their sketches when you need some inspiration.

I have to make a confession. I hope you won’t tell!! I have never made a shaker card before. I know it’s crazy isn’t it?! They are so cool and seem really easy to make. Plus who wouldn’t want to use tons of sequins at one time.

In all honesty I have never made a shaker card even though I keep thinking I really should. When I was looking at this week’s sketch the first thing that popped in my head was, this would be really cool as a shaker. Here is the sketch for this week designed by Let’s Get Sketchy Brenshevia.

I started out with white card stock from the SpiegelMom Scraps Store, I used two sheets. I cut a big circle out of one of the white sheets. I thought the white would help whatever sequin mix I decided to use, pop.

I also grabbed a sheet of heart acetate so that it was easy to see the sequins.

Because I was using the circle for the shaker, I moved the circle a little to the left. I wanted more card stock on one side for the layering. I also decided to use just one photo that was horizontal and a journaling card instead of two photos. This left a little more open space. If you spend the time to make a shaker you want to see it, right?!

The photo I picked was of my son, me and our puppy on the couch, with my puppy taken up most of the photo. (This is a common occurrence when we are on the couch.) I wanted to make make I documented it before she (our puppy) is too big for the couch at all.

There was a lot of orange in the photo. Which inspired my sequin choice, 2 Cool 4 U.

For the layers I choose colors that complimented the sequin mix, blacks, grays, light blue and yellow. With the white background it really helps brings your eye to the shaker. I used double-sided dimensional foam tape to pop up the circled card stock with the acetate paper. I made sure I used extra sticky tape, and liquid glue on top of the acetate so my layered paper doesn’t come off over time.

I love how the edges lift off the acetate though. Some texture always makes me happy, and I love the shadows that it creates.

I used feltie hearts in gray and blue around the shaker. I really wanted to draw your eye around the photo and shaker. I added a few sequins from the 2 Cool 4 U mix that I used inside.

I added a bit a sparkle with my title to bring out the tiny little silver stars in the sequin mix.

Look at how those colors pop right off of the white?!!

I am really glad I finally took that step and made a shaker, and on a layout too!! It is so much fun, and it was actually really easy!!

Here is a look at the full layout.

LET’S GET SKETCHY TEAM UP! SO GOOD!

Hello hello everyone and welcome to the Spiegelmom Scraps blog!  Staying warm and cozy is one of the best things to do during the winter cold months.  Food plays even a bigger part of being warm and cozy and some people even call this time of year the season for comfort food.  Well since I have been trying my best to stay on a proper diet, I am finding salads to be my comfort food believe it or not, Lol!

Here is the sketch that was created by Sara Scraps and I just love this one! Also be sure to check out the LGS (Let’s Get Sketchy) blog, where they will be using the same sketch!

So here is a layout of my new found comfort food!  Salomon salad with a almond flavored vinagerette salad dressing.  It was SO GOOD!

This was so fun to create and I used my favorite embellishment!  Sequins!  Yes these are new sequins called 2 Cool 4 U by the Spiegelmom Scraps.  I used them to add more interest to the layout.  Here is a closer look.

I also used the Felicia Jane kit for October called Emeline that is where the wood grain hearts came from along with all the papers and puffy stickers.

I just love the combination of the puffy stickers and sequins, they just give this layout such character.

Take a look at those puffy alphas!  They work out perfectly for the title of this layout.
