Love Life Today Layout with Katty Miranda

11

Hello friends! I’m happy to be back today to share another 12×12 Scrapbooking layout. Today I am scrapbooking a 4×6 picture of my nephews 4th birthday party back in 2012. I began with a 12×12 white American Crafts Cardstock and a Dylusions Stencil called Small Triangles. I used my Shimmerz Dazzlerz from the shop. I used the Dreamscicle in the center of the page off to the left directly onto the cardstock. I then used the stencil with two other colors, Lemon Drop Yellow and Sour Apple Green on another piece of cardstock and cut around the triangle edges. I matted the two pieces on a thin border of dark grey cardstock.

I placed the yellow piece up top and the green piece at the bottom. I nestled my photo in between the three sections of color. I used the Kaisercraft Finders Keepers paper pad and added a simple craft piece to layer behind the photo. I then took some of the cutaparts from the paper pad and added a few of those around the page as well.

I also scattered some of the Chunky Cork Stars around as well. I added ink splatters in some dylusions coordinating colors. For my tittle I used craft thicker words from Amy Tangerine. I added some gesso to them and used a gelato to color them. I then covered them in sequins. I used the Indian Summer Sequin Mix and the Sunny Smiles Sequin Mix.

This layout was a lot of fun to create. I love all of the fun textures.

Smile tag by Lea

Hello everyone … Lea here to offer you a very merry tag to give to those we care about and who we want to draw a smile.
I painted a large shipping tag with black gesso, once dry I embossed it completely with white embossing powder from a beautiful alphabet of Tim Holtz.
I then proceeded to do as I like. I created a layering with patterned paper, doily, twine, alternating different thicknesses.

I completed with sequins,  hearts and stars in felt  .

Simply beautiful layout by Lea

Hi all, Lea here…another month together and this weekend and throughout the month will be full of beautiful things for which just keep an eye on …
I like very much to take pictures and one of the subjects that I like to photograph there are flowers and for that event I wanted to “celebrate” the beauty of nature in all its simplicity.
My starting point is a beautiful patterned paper: I added the texture paste using a stencil and washi tape.
I then added with other different patterned paper, alternating with shipping tags, a doily crochet; I added some beautiful round sequins and hearts of felt, white and pink. I completed the page with the white splatters and some little doodle and title.simplyb

Hello, hello!! Jody here today and oh how I’ve missed blogging!  As you have probably seen, I’ve been busting my butt behind the scenes these last few months getting ready for big things in 2016.  The first big thing was the tripling of my Design Team, The Sparklers!!  They are a fabulous bunch of ladies from around the globe!!  I hope you had a chance to check the Design Team reveal posts HERE and HERE.  

Today, I’m sharing a Project Life spread I’ve been playing around with for the last few days.  These photos are from the first day of school this year and now that I’m looking at them here, Sari is taller.. up to my neck!!  I need to put a brick on that girl’s head to slow her down!!  Sheesh.. ok mommy rant over.

I’m using the We R Memory Keepers photo sleeves and really love them. They’re thicker plastic than the Project Life sleeves, which is HUGE for me. I’ve ripped too many of the PL brand ones because I tend to like chunky embellishments and it’s tough to squeeze them into the pockets.  I really do try to keep my pocket pages pretty simple.  It doesn’t always happen, but it’s thought that counts for me LOL!!  I am trying to get caught up after all… eh’em…. 

Another thing I’ve been working on lately is using the papers in my stash. This can definitely be a challenge though because by the time I have a couple papers left in a collection or some larger scraps to work with, most or all of the coordinating embellishments have been used up.  Adding those little details are what I absolutely love to do and that’s when I reach for the unique embellishments from the Scrap Shop right here!  Whether it’s cork, sequins, felt die cuts or another fun embellishment, I always have something thats just right.

Below, I’ve added the Chunky Cork Hearts to the bottom middle pocket and really love the contrast and texture they add.  They have the perfect earthy feel that works well with all the colors on the page.

Tuesday’s Talent ~ Sarah McClellan in the House!!!

Hi SpiegelMomScraps fans!  My name is Sarah and I was thrilled when Jody asked me to be her guest designer for November!  I am a thirty-something mom of two girls from Minnesota.  I have been a traditional 12×12 scrapbooker since 2007 and started Project Life in January of 2014.  

For my first project, I did this beautiful Project Life double spread for Week 37 of 2015.  I used papers and stickers from the Crate Paper Wonder Collection.  I used some Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine and Amy Tangerine Goodness Thickers from American Crafts.  My date stamper is from Becky Higgins with Staz-on ink in black.

On my Week 37 title card, I layered a Gold Foil Doily, a shipping tag, Crate Paper Wonder ephemera, and Cloudy Day Cork shapes.    I embellished with enamel shapes, yellow Felt-Fetti Hearts,  Gold Garland Confetti, and Indian Summer Sequin mix.  Enamel dots can be expensive and a great way to save money scrapping is by using sequins in place of enamel dots!

I love to make embellishment clusters on my Project Life spreads like this one.  Here I used another Gold Foil Doily, Crate Paper Wonder ephemera, and stickers, along with a few Thickers. I embellished with Cloudy Days Cork, some Gold Garland Confetti, and Indian Summer Sequins.

In this cluster, I used Cork-Fetti Hearts, along with the Crate Paper ephemera.  When I start a Project Life layout, I try to chose a couple of busier papers from the collection and the rest are from the base colors.  Also, I almost always get the coordinating cut-apart sheets.  I like to layer on the ephemera and stickers and then repeat design elements across my Project Life layouts to create a cohesive look.  I also try to embellish with the same items and only use color shine on a couple of cards.  I do all of my journaling on my antique Underwood typewriter.  

Well, that’s all from me this week.  I hope you all enjoyed my first project this month!  I am so enjoying using these goodies from SpiegelMomScrapShop!  I am looking forward to sharing more projects with you this month!  If you have any questions or would like to see more of my projects, you can find me on InstagramMy Blog and Youtube.
