PL March Wk 1 – Live Today

The Monday after losing an hour of sleep is always a hard one.. I’m here today with a colorful spring spread hoping to brighten the first day of your work week!

I really love capturing the details of our home.. I wanted to incorporate some floral prints into this spread of the new flower arrangement in our kitchen. I used several papers from the Felicity Jane “Jane” March kit.. my first one. I made a deal with myself that if I were subscribing to a new kit, I would do a better job of incorporating products that I already have.

I have lots of Shimmerz products from the shop hanging out in my craft room. I chose this shade of green to add a little detail to my spread (like those dots highlighting the “photos I love” journaling card) and create an ombre filler card. I absolutely love using Acri-Tonez with water – it creates a water-color look that still has a matte-like finish! So great!

Do you have some shimmerz Acri-Tonez in colors you struggle to use? Try using it in combination with water for a water-color effect. It really softens the color!

I thought cork products were the perfect balance for this spread – the natural tones worked well with the pastel color palette! I used arrows and hearts from the shop.

I love the layering of sequins (this mix!) on cork – and the staple just adds some whimsy! Fun fact, I keep forgetting to order tiny staples for my tiny AC stapler, so those are full sized staples.. HA. Also on my page are thickers from Amy Tangerine’s “Finders Keepers” and Dear Lizzy “Saturday” collections.

I really like how the page on the right looks without any pictures, really functioning as a pretty title page. Especially since the left side is so full of color.

Hope you felt inspired today!

I Love You – Love Post #2

Good Morning!

Apparently this month has me all lovey without even realizing it. You may have noticed my love-inspired post a few weeks ago – well I have another this week. We had so many wonderful pictures of our wedding I’ll have material to scrap for years. This layout features some beautiful products and one of my favorite pictures from our wedding.

I started off with a gorgeous watercolor printed paper by Paige Evans for Pink Paislee and splattered Shimmerz Acri Tonez In the Navy to add a little pop.

I used a cut file from Paper Issues on navy paper to match the Acri Tonez – placing it behind where my picture would go. In addition to the cut file I layered with some vellum + gold foiled cardstock by Shimelle.

I then stitched on the “I Love You” title cut with my silhouette from white cardstock. Along with that, I stitched on a navy heart feltie *I’ve had my pack of felties for months and use them on everything .. so many in one pack!

I then layered a few embellishments over top of my photo – including some DIY and from Crate Paper Gather collection. Oh, and can’t forget the white painted cork heart from the “I Cork U” pack.

I finished off my layout with the exclusive “Steal My Heart” sequin mix. There are so many mixes in the shop right now perfect for springtime! Thanks for stopping by!

How I Interpret a Sketch with Laura

 

Hi Folks, Laura here today.  As you know from my team mates we are teaming up with Let’s Get Sketchy this month.  I’m going to take you through my process of interpreting a scrapbook sketch – and I have to say our Sara aced it with this sketch!

fb_img_1479157076380

The first thing I see when I look at this sketch is squares.  The second thing I notice is the diagonal spread across the page.  For me that was enough to spark this design.  You do not need to repeat every element of the sketch – although you can and that is perfectly okay.

@spiegelmomscraps @prettylittlestudio @ashleyhorton #spiegelmomscraps#prettylittlestudio #ashleyhorton #letsgetsketchy

All of the squares in the sketch are solid but I have used various transparent elements in vellum and acetate, and I’ve added in square outlines made from sequins.  I’ve also squished them up more than the sketch shows, overlapping them.  This is made more effective by layering the transparent materials over each other so you can see through multiple tiers to the mixed media background.

@spiegelmomscraps @prettylittlestudio @ashleyhorton #spiegelmomscraps#prettylittlestudio #ashleyhorton #letsgetsketchy

I have played fast and loose with the way the sketch suggests the photo.  This is perfectly OK – the sketch is there as a guide, as inspiration, and it sparked the creativity to start with.

@spiegelmomscraps @prettylittlestudio @ashleyhorton #spiegelmomscraps#prettylittlestudio #ashleyhorton #letsgetsketchy

SpiegelMom Scraps products used:  Falling Leaves Sequins, Autumn Joy Sequins, A Day In The Woods Sequins, Cork Die Cut Hearts, Shimmerz Spritz and Vibez.

I hope you’ve enjoyed your insight into my method of using sketches.  Let me know if this was helpful to you – I can walk through more of my sketch to layout processes in the future if you are interested?

Thanks for stopping by,

Laura

Scraplift Sunday with Crafty Meggy: Just a Little Summer Sun

Scraplift Sunday

Hello scrappy friends!!  I hope you’re all having a great weekend!! It’s been crazy at my house with summer coming to an end and school starting in a few weeks. Also, we have decided to list our house for sale. Why not? Let’s add to the stress. LOL

Anyway, I have another scraplift layout to share with you this week and I am excited about this one! I found the layout on instagram on Letitia Guelpa’s account. You can find her on IG as @letitiaguelpa.

I just loved the big title and the patterned paper and use of multiple photos. Isn’t it just a darling layout!! I love it!

Here is my take on it and I am also so in love with my layout:

august14thlayout1footer

I have had the Claudia Van R Designs summer collection, called Hot Right Now, printed out for a while now and I haven’t used it yet so this week I decided to use that with my SpiegelMom Scraps products. I LOVE the colors of Claudia’s kit! They worked perfect with the photos I had of my middle son at swimming lessons.

august14thlayout3

I wanted to mimic the big and long title so I used an Amy Tangerine Thicker alpha set called ‘Other Half’. In the top left corner you can see a green and white diagonal striped paper….. BUT, it’s not a paper!! I fooled you didn’t I?!! lol I decided to use the diagonal striped glassine bags you can get in the shop and cut it up to fit that corner. I really love how it looks!

august14thlayout4

I used the pretty Spring Blooms sequin mix all down the layout around the big title. This was a happy accident because I spilt a bunch of them on the layout to the right of the title as I was pulling them out of the bag and I really like how it looked so I decided to “spill” them all around the title. I think that’s my favorite part of it! Don’t you love it when an accident happens and it just completes the layout?

august14thlayout5

The ampersand that I used in the title came with Claudia’s kit. I used my Silhouette cameo to cut out all the embellishments you see on this layout, including the ampersand. I popped it up on little pop dots to make it the same height as the thickers.

august14thlayout6

My son is on the far right. I really love this photo of him sitting with his class on the edge of the pool. I also love that you can see he is in a class of all girls. That seems to happen a lot with him. lol

august14thlayout7

I also used a few of the new cork hearts that haven’t been release yet, but they will be soon so keep your eye on the shop! I believe Jody will be adding them to the shop this week sometime!

august14thlayout2

I also used Shimmerz Dazzlers The Tide That Binds Texturez to add a faint paint look on the edge of the patterned papers. I like how it makes them stand out against the other papers and background.

Thanks for stopping by today!! I hope you enjoyed seeing my take on this scraplift! I will be back next Sunday with another scraplifted layout. I hope you’re enjoying all the great products in the store! Make sure to use code Megan15 to get 15% off your order total! Have a great Sunday!

GD Renee Joy ~ Part IV

Hi, there, scrappy friends….I hope everyone had a fun weekend. Are you ready to start scrappin’….I bet some of you already have. Here is what I have been up to. I decided to create another pocket page for one for one of my scrapbooks. As always, it was fun playing with my embellishments from SpiegelMom Scraps Ok, let’s get started. Here is the completed layout; then, I will get into the details.

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps

It is always fun scrapping pics of my kids when they were younger. I definitely have plenty of those pics to scrap yet. This is great for Jody’s 15 minutes a day plan 🙂 Speaking of a plan, here is the first detail I wanted to include. It was fun watching my children together as they shared my daughter’s 7th birthday.

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps

Oh, and I just love the heart with all of those lovely sentiments. I really like the way it fits in the pocket so nicely.

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @heidiswapp, #heidiswapp #spiegelmomscraps #sequins #heart #pocketpage #projectlife #pocketletter #studiocalico #foreverlovehearts

Well, you know how much I adore the sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps….I had to use them on this layout, too. Before I show you the detail shot, I would like to share how sequins have become a part of our home. My hubby found some on the floor in our kitchen and and asked me if I needed these. I told my hubby that I definitly did….I think he gets the picture….really, what kitchen floor doesn’t need a bit of sparkle, right?

Here are the supplies I used.

Paper-Heidi Swapp and Becky Higgins Project Life, Doodle Bug and Amy Tangerine
Sequins-Blue Lagoon Mix
Wood Veneer Stars
Forever Love Hearts
Cork-Fetti Hearts

I really had good time creating this layout. I sure hope that you have some time for creating yourselves this week. Oh, I would love to hear!! I will be back next week with one more project as SpiegelMom Scraps GD for June. It’s been great!!

Happy Scrapping,
