Fuse It Fun Day- First Day Sillies

Hey everyone! I’m back with my Fuse tool this week! And in keeping with the 90’s theme, I bring you “gettin’ corky wit it”!

Yep, that was a terrible Will Smith reference! Haha! I realized recently that I scrapped my son’s first day of school photos, but not the “outtakes”! I really wanted to capture how silly he was being! I started with a naked tree cut file, and created leaves with cork embellishments. The tree on the right uses the Corky Cumulus embellies as leaf clusters. The tree on the left uses the Cork Confetti Hearts as the leaves! I contemplated painting the cork, but I went with the natural look because it reminded me more of Fall.

After I had the trees figured out I wanted to make a little school house. I created this cut file from free clip art. Once I layered each patterned paper, I fused little pockets of Gold Stardust Sequins for each of the windows on the back of the school house. The stardust sequins are probably my most favorite because they are so versatile and can be used on just about every project! For this layout I just love how they make the school shine!

Some Cloudy Days Felties finished off this little scene perfectly!

I absolutely love how this came out, it is quirky (and corky) and fun, really capturing my son’s personality! I hope you enjoyed it too!

Be sure to save some money when you stop by the scrappy store, and I would love to see how you “get corky wit it!” 🙂

Creative Cards With Karla – Typewriter Card and Bookmark Set!

Hello friends! Karla here today, and I hope you’ve had a wonderful week so far. I’ve been having fun with the SpiegelMom Scraps June theme – Take Us Back June – and been thinking of lots of retro icons to have fun with this month. I found some fun typewriter paper along with a cut apart image in my stash and decided it would make a great card and bookmark set. While I was looking through my sequin mixes to see what matched my project I found some lovely colours in the Holiday Traditions sequin mix and then grabbed the Mocha Mint Dream sequin mix to go along with it. Now, I wouldn’t have automatically grabbed these two mixes for either a summer or a retro project, but I realized they work and I need to mix and match more of the mixes that I might be overlooking!@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @projectlife #fusetool #bookmark #card #giftset #stamping #ribbon #sequins #cork #spiegelmomscrap

I recently picked up one of the Becky Higgins Fuse Tools and I am loving it! I love the look of shaker pockets, but when it comes right down to it, I just don’t have the patience to think about all the details to make that little shaker area! Well, this made it sooo easy! I cut the typewriter card out of the cut apart sheet and used a pocket page from my stash to fuse around 3 edges. I glued on my cute Cork Confetti Heart and added some sequins and glitter to my pocket before fusing the top. Easy-peasy!! I used some Scor tape to tape my pocket to the card base and added a little tab at the top stamped with a greeting from an older CTMH stamp set.

Inside, I used a stamp from the Your Next Stamp Whatnot Sentiment Ten set and added more sequins and some washi tape along the bottom. A few dots of Stickles on the letters add a bit more bling! Well, I couldn’t stop at just a card, so as I was thinking about what I could create next with my fun Fuse tool I thought a bookmark would be great! It could fit into an envelope with the card and add a little something extra for that special person! I layered on my papers, stamped with the typefont CTMH stamp set and created the pocket the same way as above, using more of the Holiday Traditions sequins and the Mocha Mint Dream sequins again. I punched a hole in the top, and since I was using a thick ribbon I wasn’t worried about anything coming out of the hole.

Here’s a look at the back of the bookmark – where I again used the YNS sentiment stamp.

Scraplift Sunday with a Twist

Hello scrappy friends!! This is Megan and I have a couple fun cards to share with you today. I’m not a huge card maker, but sometimes I’ll make a few at a time, so I thought it would be fun to pull out an oldish Close to my Heart catalog and find a couple cards I liked.

Here’s a photo of the one I decided to lift:

and then I got the idea to emboss my base from this one:

 

Here are my cute cards that I made with the inspiration from CTMH. I love them both!

I know that Father’s Day is far away, but I thought this card was super cute and my husband would like it so that’s why I went with this stamp. For the base of both cards I used the American Crafts Textured Cardstock.

I used these I Cork U hearts from the shop along with the Amy’s Sprinkles sequin mix.

You can also find the Large Shipping Tag in the shop as well as the new Shimmerz Paints Acritonez, I used Jiven Jade.

For this second card I decided I wanted to make it totally different than the inspiration from the CTMH catalog. I loved the idea of using the embossing folder. This is a cloud one I bought from Stampin’ Up. I wanted to paint the embossed card and created kind of a resist image, but the Acritones I used, dried too fast. But, I really love how it turned out!

I really love these cute Cloudy Days felites!! I think they’re one of my favorite products in the shop!!

I also used the Plum Dreamsicle sequin mix and a Close to my Heart stamp.

I hope you enjoyed seeing these cute cards!! I have a process videos that I will post below.

Thanks so much for stopping by!! I hope you have a great Sunday!!

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!

#spiegelmomscraps #shimmerz #mixedmedia #projectlife #pocketscrapbooking #pocketpages #corkheart #stamping #scrapbooking #papercrafting #amytangerine #felicityjane @felicityjanestudio @spiegelmom_scraps @amytangerine @shimmerzpaints

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.

august14thlayoutscraplift

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!
