Fall Friday – Mini Album

Welcome, Fall!

Although it’s a freakish 85 degrees here in NC as I write this, I’m still gazing at the fall foliage from inside my air conditioned home and enjoying the beauty of it. Because many of the fall activities for this year have yet to come, I put together a short mini from 2015 – I just couldn’t wait!

#SpiegelMomScraps #minialbum #autumn #sequins #scrapbooking #papercrafting #memorykeeping @SpiegelMom_Scraps @wordsandpaperscrapsFor the front and back covers, I used two pieces of thick cardstock mod podged together, nothing too fancy.#SpiegelMomScraps #minialbum #autumn #sequins #scrapbooking #papercrafting #memorykeeping @SpiegelMom_Scraps @wordsandpaperscrapsThe title was made with some alphas from my stash (I love pairing white + gold).  For this mini, I didn’t necessarily care that the pages were different sizes. I liked the eclectic feel. #SpiegelMomScraps #minialbum #autumn #sequins #scrapbooking #papercrafting #memorykeeping @SpiegelMom_Scraps @wordsandpaperscrapsI wanted the first thing you saw when you opened the mini to be a gorgeous shaker pocket page. I paired some exclusive Autumn Joy sequins with some cork die cuts from the shop. *Remember that time I told you I’ve been using these sequins with everything and they last FOREVER? Visit here for another project using this mix. It’s perfect#SpiegelMomScraps #minialbum #autumn #sequins #scrapbooking #papercrafting #memorykeeping @SpiegelMom_Scraps @wordsandpaperscrapsI like to include little journaling cards in my mini albums – Can you see that one peeking out from the bottom? #SpiegelMomScraps #minialbum #autumn #sequins #scrapbooking #papercrafting #memorykeeping @SpiegelMom_Scraps @wordsandpaperscrapsThese pictures of our sweet dogs are two of my very favorites. On projects I love to give the effect that clothespins are holding pictures in place. #SpiegelMomScraps #minialbum #autumn #sequins #scrapbooking #papercrafting #memorykeeping @SpiegelMom_Scraps @wordsandpaperscrapsI love getting fancy Starbucks coffee in the Fall, and so I tucked one inside a glassine bag turned pocket envelope. I used a lot of products from the Basic Grey Barista line on this project. #SpiegelMomScraps #minialbum #autumn #sequins #scrapbooking #papercrafting #memorykeeping @SpiegelMom_Scraps @wordsandpaperscrapsTags are the perfect addition for adding interest to mini albums!#SpiegelMomScraps #minialbum #autumn #sequins #scrapbooking #papercrafting #memorykeeping @SpiegelMom_Scraps @wordsandpaperscraps

Our 2nd anniversary is November 1st. I can’t wait for 100 years worth of fall-inspired anniversary pictures with my sweet hubby. Hope you enjoyed this mini!

What about Wednesday: Sequin Pocket Love!

what about wednesday blog header

Hello again and happy Hump Day!! I hope your week is going great so far! This is Megan and I am excited to be back again today with you to share another layout. For this one I wanted to make a layout with a sequin pocket in a different way that I haven’t tried yet. I’ve used glassine bags and I’ve also used foam and a sheet of plastic. Let’s jump right into my layout!!

19oct1withfooter

I had so much fun making this layout!! I wanted to use a few different sequin mixes for the little tag pocket. I went with some of the new fall mixes, Autumn Joy and Falling Leaves. I also used A Day in the Woods. These 3 sequin mixes are so fun to use with fall photos!!

19oct2

The sequin pocket was so easy to make! I grabbed one of the tags from the shop and some vellum I had on hand. I placed the sequins I wanted on the tag, put glue on all 4 sides of the vellum and then placed it on top of the tag. For a better idea, you can watch my process video below. I show you how I make it in the video.

19oct3

I think this little cluster is my favorite on this layout, and it might be because of that adorable little clock!! I need to do research on what day these photos were taken and then I will stamp it on the label in this cluster.

19oct4

I really love the cute cork stars you can find in the shop! They put the finishing touches on this smaller cluster in the top right corner.

19oct5

Here’s another view of this cluster of labels and fun ephemera. You can also see the Shimmerz Texturez I used in Gold Mine on the edge of the layout, right next to the photo mat.

I also made a process video to go along with this layout. You can find it on my YouTube channel or below:

FriYAY Mixed Media Goodness

Happy Friday, friends!

With my project today I’m using neutrals to highlight bright pops of pink and magenta. You know I’m always loving white backgrounds. However, recently I’ve been inspired by designer Terhi Koshen to go “no white” so be on the look out for that 😉

#SpiegelMom_Scraps #AmyTangerine #mixedmedia #cork #Shimmerz #exclusivesequins #PinkPaislee #scrapbooking #papercrafting #scrapbooklayout #woodveneer @spiegelMom_Scraps @PinkPaislee @AmyTangerine @Shimmerzpaints @Wordsandpaperscraps

For my paint-splattered / smudged background I used Shimmerz Vibez in Blushing Bride and Dazzlers in Spun Sugar (for the stenciled circles). I also added some gold Project Life rub-ons for a little shimmer.

The ephemera layered behind my photo comes from Pink Paislee’s C’est La Vie collection

#SpiegelMom_Scraps #AmyTangerine #mixedmedia #cork #Shimmerz #exclusivesequins #PinkPaislee #scrapbooking #papercrafting #scrapbooklayout #woodveneer @spiegelMom_Scraps @PinkPaislee @AmyTangerine @Shimmerzpaints @Wordsandpaperscraps

I stitched on a cork heart from the shop and a wood veneer heart to help bring out the natural colors in the ephemera (& offset the bright pinks!) I also added a tiny wooden clothespin for this same effect.

#SpiegelMom_Scraps #AmyTangerine #mixedmedia #cork #Shimmerz #exclusivesequins #PinkPaislee #scrapbooking #papercrafting #scrapbooklayout #woodveneer @spiegelMom_Scraps @PinkPaislee @AmyTangerine @Shimmerzpaints @Wordsandpaperscraps

I finished my layout with sequins from the shop – Magical Day in the Park and Pinky Pie Pinks – they coordinate perfectly with the paint colors I used!

Friends Now & Then: September Challenge

September Challenge = Old + New

Check out all SMS challenges over on our private Facebook group! Ask to join if you haven’t already

Better late than never! I love the concept of incorporating old and new products (and photos) into one project – What a great way to use some things I haven’t thought of in awhile. I wanted to use a photo of me and my friend Jordan from our first year of college and one from after we had graduated. Though not many years passed between the photos, I love showing the stages of our friendship!

#SpiegelMomScraps #DearLizzy #SeptemberChallenge #CratePaper #SimpleStories #HeidiSwapp #Shimmerz #PinkFreshStudio #corkconfetti #scrapbooking #papercrafting #sequins @SpiegelMom_Scraps @ShimmerzPaints @CratePaper @PinkPaislee

My background paper is from the Dear Lizzy Saturday collection. I usually shy away from using patterned paper but I wanted to push myself a little on this project. To soften it, I used a floral stencil from Heidi Swapp with some texture paste. I used some Shimmerz Dazzlers Sea U in the Mornin’ to highlight the textured flowers.

#SpiegelMomScraps #DearLizzy #SeptemberChallenge #CratePaper #SimpleStories #HeidiSwapp #Shimmerz #PinkFreshStudio #corkconfetti #scrapbooking #papercrafting #sequins @SpiegelMom_Scraps @ShimmerzPaints @CratePaper @PinkPaislee

To bring out the teal color even more, I used string and a brad from the Simple Stories Posh collection.

For my older supplies, I used some papers and embellishments from the Crate Paper Style Board collection. I layered a few scraps under and around my pictures. I also incorporated a gold foil doily from the shop for a little shine & to bring out the gold detail on that PinkFresh Studio wood clip from the Indigo Hills collection.

For the finishing touches I used a few different embellishments. The black and white AC thickers plus signs at the top coordinate with the pattern on the background. I also couldn’t resist stitching on some cork chevron confetti .. LOVE. Lastly, I added a few sequins from the Let’s Be Mermaids mix.

I’m happy with how this project turned out! It really pushed me to utilize products from different collections.

Make It Yours Monday

Hello Everybody and thank you for joining me for another Make It Yours Monday! I have a really fun and colorful layout for you today that I was totally inspired to create after seeing a circus themed party collection at my local party store!! I knew I had to use this photo of my oldest daughters kindergarten class’s “Clowning Around” spirit day from last year.

9-25-footer

I started, as I usually do, with a piece of American Crafts Textured White Cardstock. I splattered the background with Pretty In PinkHeidi Ho Blue, and Pink Stilettos coloringz from Shimmerz. I marked out where my photo will be and then used my Heidi Swapp Confetti Stencil to create the stars. I used the Dreamscicle and Lemon Drop dazzlerz through the stencil. I didn’t clean the stencil between colors, allowing some of it to mix and create a new color!

9-25-2

While I was waiting for the background to dry, I started on my photo layers. Using scraps from stash, I used the colors from the photo to help me choose the colors for the papers. I misted a white doily from the shop with the 2 pink mists I used on the background to create a pink one and layered them with the photo cluster also.

9-25-3

When the background was dry, I adhered the photo cluster to the page. I outlined each of the strips the photo is on with my black pen and added my journaling,  Chunky Cork Stars were the first fun embellishments I added around the page in clusters. Wood Veneer stars joined the cork, as well as some of the pretty yellow and teal sequins from the Believe In You sequin mix. I broke out some of my new colors of Nuvo drops and added some dots into the mix. I added the title “Class Clowns” to my photo and I was done! This is such a FUN and COLORFUL layout, inspired by a PLATE!!!

9-25-1

So, Look around this week, at colors, patterns, anything and take it to a page. Make It Yours. And come back next time to join me for another MAKE IT YOURS MONDAY!!!

AND, dont forget, you can use LISA15 and get 15% off all of the beautiful products in the shop, including all the pretties I used today!!!

Trendy Tuesday Layout with Katty Miranda

Hello friends! Welcome back! Katty here to share a Birthday themed 12×12 Scrapbooking layout. I began with a yellow polka dot patterned paper from my stash. I used a black and white bold stripe patterned paper from Teresa Collins to back the layout. I only wanted it peeking out on the sides. I am using two black and white photos of my older son on his 12th Birthday earlier this month. I began by matting the photos with a few layers. I used the Black Diagonal Stripe Bag in Black right behind my photo. I then layered a few patterned papers from an American Crafts 6×6 paper pad. I also scattered around some stickers and die cuts from the Simple Stories Let’s Party Collection.

fullsizerender-8

I layered some of the teal and red sequins from the Believe in You Sequin Mix over the Chunky Cork Stars and scattered those around the page.

fullsizerender-7

I then added some thin strips of two of the patterned papers as well as a row of the teal sequins from the Believe in You Sequin Mix to the left side of the layout.

fullsizerender-10

I also created a small cluster on the right hand side where I added mt date on one of the tabs from the Simple Stories die cuts.

This was fun ti create. There is a process video on my YouTube Channel: https://youtu.be/eioQmwivMIk

Make It Yours Monday

make it yours monday

9-19-w-footer

I’m SO excited to be back with another Make It Yours Monday!!! This week’s layout is special to me! It’s an original sketch, my first ever!!!

my-sketch

My layout was inspired by my living room photo display…

6955265e59c16152d8cc5cb6613e36e7

I Started with a piece of wood grain paper from Simple Stories. I cut out the center and backed my photo with the inside piece. I layered a Medium Glassine Bag under the matted photo and then layered another piece of wood grain paper as the final mat.  I adhered 3 Normandy Doilies, cut in half, to the top and bottom of the matted photo for some texture.

14316835_10210356250123577_7387649189751259866_n

I set aside the photo cluster and began to work on my background. I cut down a piece of white American Crafts cardstock to about 10×10 and splattered some Shimmerz Coloringz in  Heidi Ho Blue and Pretty in Pink across the center as well as some Gold Heidi Shine.

Next, I moved onto the messier (my favorite) part. I started with some Spun Sugar Dazzlers and Rose Gold glitter paste from Bo Bunny. I used a burlap stencil from Tim Holtz and created my 3 areas of mixed media. After it was dry, I edged the white paper with Walnut Stain Distress ink.

14359224_10210356205642465_6566022140248507998_n

From there, I adhered my matted photo to the center of the page. I tucked a shipping tag into the bag layer behind my photo for my journaling.

Then, the FUN stuff! The embellishment’s for this layout were so fun! I used a scrap strip of the wood grain paper to make a cluster just above the photo and attached a scrap of doily left over from the other cut pieces from earlier.  This cluster also got some of the awesome Cloudy Day Felties and a Cork Star that I added some dot details to make it look like a starfish! Some green sequins from the pretty mix A Day In The Woods and some blue from the beautiful Lets Be Mermaids mix finished off this cluster.

14344870_10210356207802519_6405759811220375378_n

I added some more Cork Stars, again with the dot details, to the bottom left of the photo with some sequins from the same mixes and a wood veneer star. The top right corner also got the same fun little details. I added my title right to the photo and I was done!

14358816_10210356206802494_6707615841973686896_n  14370247_10210356207442510_6605754924433721064_n

I cant even get over how much I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this Layout!!! I’m so glad you joined me this week for Make It Your’s Monday because this really does show you how inspiration can come from ANYWHERE or ANYTHING!!!

14359224_10210356205642465_6566022140248507998_n

THANK YOU for coming back each week to visit and see where inspiration is coming from for me. I hope I am inspiring you to take a look around and see what you can translate into you pages as well.

Minimalist Thursday – Hello Awesome

[HAPPY]

13781787_10210616249269057_1679888808299106480_n

Sometimes layouts are the most impactful when comprised of a pretty photograph and a few embellishments. It’s like the eye can linger instead of searching and processing details all over the page.

#SpiegelMom_Scraps #exclusivesequins #americancrafts #papercrafting #scrapbooking #cork #feltie #woodveneer @SpiegelMom_Scraps @JodySpiegelhoff @wordsandpaperscraps @americancrafts

I’m such a believer in minimalist projects, and so I’m excited to be sharing mine today! I think the colors in this layout perfectly capture this somewhere in between summer & fall time. The picture featured was actually taken in January – Bare trees make for really gorgeous silhouettes.

I started with a white cardstock background and used some periwinkle paint to define the space I would be using. I splattered a little bit of darker paint around to add interest. Once it dried, I layered a few random pieces of paper from my stash and some Halloween themed washi tape by American Crafts over it. I lined up my photo after I had my paper arranged so I would know how big I wanted my shaker pocket. I used my Fuse tool to create this shaker filled with the Autumn Joy sequin mix. [Side note: These mixes go so far, this is my third project with this mix and I’m still going]

#SpiegelMom_Scraps #exclusivesequins #americancrafts #papercrafting #scrapbooking #cork #feltie #woodveneer @SpiegelMom_Scraps @JodySpiegelhoff @wordsandpaperscraps @americancrafts

I painted those wood veneer shapes by Jillibean Soup in a slightly darker color than the background. I just love how it contrasts with the oranges in the sequin mix!

#SpiegelMom_Scraps #exclusivesequins #americancrafts #papercrafting #scrapbooking #cork #feltie #woodveneer @SpiegelMom_Scraps @JodySpiegelhoff @wordsandpaperscraps @americancrafts

To finish up, I stitched on a Night of Navy heart feltie and added a little cork star from the shop. When I include a large gathering of sequins together on a layout I always add another singular one (or two) somewhere else to help balance my page.

And without too much fuss my project is done! I really love how it turned out.

Thanks for reading, y’all!

What about Wednesday Layout with Katty Miranda

what about wednesday blog header

Hello friends! Katty Miranda here for another What about Wednesday. Today I am focusing on cut files. Cut files are a great way to add interest to any layout. There are so many fonts and designs available that the possibilities are endless. We are very lucky to have Khristina Sorge on our team. She is creating free, yes free cut files available for you to download every month. Take a look at this months awesome cut files. You can download the free cut file here: http://spiegelmomscraps.com/sparklers-unite-dt-blog-hop/

Silhouette Studio_ August Blog Hop Cut Files

I used the Summer word and cut it out multiple times on American Crafts White Textured Cardstock. As a background I chose a blue hombre patterned paper from the Pink Paislee Fancy Free Paper Pad. I am scrapbooking a 4×91/2 panoramic photo of Hanauma Bay in Oahu Hawaii from our recent summer vacation. I lined up the photos and the cut files vertically on the page. For the open cut files I used 6×6 paper pads from my stash to back the openings. I chose patterned papers in the blue and green tones. The regular cut words I covered in beautiful Sequins.

FullSizeRender (46)

For the word on top I used the small flat back blue sequins from the Magical Day in the Park mix. For the bottom word I used the blue sequins from the Raspberry Daisy Dream mix and the Green ones from the Mermaids Tale mix. I added a bit of color behind the cut files using a Tim Holtz stencil and the beautiful Shimmerz Dazzlerz in Lemon Drop.

FullSizeRender (47)

To finish my tittle I used some tine letter stickers from my stash and added them underneath the last cut file at the bottom. I also added a yellow die cut that says Hello from my stash.

IMG_0552

These are the products I used from the shop today. Not photographed is the Shimmerz Dazzlerz in Lemon Drop.

Tuesday Talent

Tuesday's Talent

Mandi, here. Popping in to share with you a cute baby layout that features the May Arts Burlap StringSea U in the Mornin’ Shimmerz DazzlerzTutti Frutti Dazzlerz Texture PasteCloudy Days FeltiesChunky Cork Hearts and Gold Sequin Confetti.

Pictures3

I love to take bits and pieces to create a cluster which helps draws the eye in to the title area. As you can see here I have felties, cork, string and papers which adds a lot of texture without a lot of bulk, which takes up less room in albums.

DSCN4817

To give the embossed cardstock this shine I applied a thin layer of the Dazzlerz. I came across a cool technique the Dazzlerz can be used in. It can exactly be used as an adhesive for foil sheets. Apply a thin layer of the paste to the cardstock, let it get to the tacky stage, maybe five minutes, rub the foil in the area you want and remove. You should be left with something that looks like this.

DSCN4821

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed this fun technique in how to incorporated the Dazzlerz into your crafty work.

Wild Thing Layout with Katty Miranda

Scrapbook Sessions

Hello friends! Katty here to share another 12×12 layout. I am scrapbooking four small photos of my niece and nephew from my nephews birthday party. I began with American Crafts White Textured Cardstock. I matted all four photos on black cardstock. For my background I used some mist, I used a Lindy’s Stamp Gang mist called Merci Beaucoup Mint and a Heidi Swapp mist called Mustard with the packaging technique. I also added some splatters with Dylusions mists in After Midnight and Tangerine Dream. I used a 6×6 stencil by The Crafters Workshop called Mini Shattered Circles with the Dreamscicle Dazzlerz and The Tide that Binds Texturez to create some fun shapes and texture in the background.

FullSizeRender

I added my four photos and in between the four photos I added my tittle with some old Memento thickers which have a giraffe print on them. Since the photos are of the kids with some of the fun animals that the clown and Magician had brought out I thought those thickers would work well and I titled the layout “Wild Things” which I added in a T shape between the photos.

FullSizeRender (2)

Lastly I added my favorite, the Cork Chunky Stars and I sprinkled some fun matching sequins from the Believe in You Sequins and the Alma Mater Sequins. I used a teal Patterned Paper called Gala from the Maggie Holmes Confetti collection to mat the whole layout. This layout came together very quickly and I love how it turned out.

You are my Sunshine Layout with Katty Miranda

@spiegelmomscraps @pinkpasilee @silhouette @jodyspiegelhoff @bigshot @kaiserkraft, #spiegelmomscraps #jodyspiegelhoff #kaiserkraft #scrapbook #pinkpaislee #fancyfree #diy #diecut

Hello! Katty here to share another layout with you all. For today’s layout I began with a cut file from my Silhouette. It’s a sun and a fun tittle. I backed both with patterned papers.

FFFFFFullSizeRender

I am scrapping a photo of my older son Brian when he was about 9 months old. He always had this huge smile on his face. It was adorable. I used one on my favorite stencils, the Ameriacana Pixelated stencil with the Shimmerz Dazzlers in Dreamscicle between the sun “rays.”

FFFullSizeRender

I also added some of the yellow and orange sequins from the A day in the woods sequin mix. I kept the embellishing pretty simple. I backed my photo with a navy and yellow patterned paper and all of the ephemera pieces are from a Heidi Swapp ephemera pack.

FFFFullSizeRender

I also scattered a few of the cork Chunky Stars. This layout ended up being simple but I love how it turned out.

Up North Layout and Process Video with Khristina

Hi Everybody! I am SO very excited to be here at SpiegelMom Scraps as the Guest Designer for the month of July. The month started off with a bang with the new releases on July 1st including six amazing new sets of sequin mixes. Today, I am going to share a layout and process video using one of those collections, A Day in the Woods, which is shown here:

A Day in the Wood
A Day in the Wood

One of my favorite uses for all of these beautiful sequins is to create shaker pockets combined with cut files. The two elements naturally work well together and create a fun and unique detail on your page. This collection coordinates perfectly with SO many of the new summer collections including both Bo Bunny’s new Take a Hike Noteworthy Collection and the new Pink Paislee Outfitters collection. My layout combined some elements from both of those collections.

Without further ado, here is my completed project and some close-ups as well as some helpful hints.

July 2016 Guest Designer Layout

From the SpiegelMom Scraps Store, I worked with the A Day in the Woods sequin mix as well as the Cork-Fetti Hearts and the Fuse Tool. I picked up some 3×4 Project Life Pockets and used those along with my Fuse Tool to create three small shaker pockets where I mixed in some sequins along with some of the mini cork hearts.

I have the larger cork hearts added to the embellishment clusters to tie it all together. One big hint for making those shaker pockets work with the cut file is to back the cut file with patterned pattern and then with some foam adhesive or Fun Foam which adds some natural dimension that you can use to allow the shaker pockets room to fit.

There are loads of hints and suggestions in the process video that I have over on my You Tube Channel to coordinate with this project. You can find that video here. I would love to see what you create with the A Day in the Woods sequin mix and hope that you will share with us here at SpiegelMom Scraps. I will be back next week with another fun project!

Happy Crafting!!
