Hi friends! Karla back today to share a First Day of Kindergarten layout with you using two of the fabulous new SpiegelMom Scraps sequin mixes –  I Solemnly Swear and Blue Moon! The woodgrain sequins in the Blue Moon mix are so amazing!! I’m using one of the new FREE SMS cutfiles, which was perfect for this layout combined with the Simple Stories school papers. It’s so hard to believe my baby is already in school, but she loves it so much that I can’t really be sad…

You can see the detail of those gorgeous woodgrain sequins and how lovely they look combined with the amazing colours in the I Solemnly Swear mix! I used this week’s circle sketch since November is all about circles here on the blog (see below), and I drew on some stitching lines with a fine black marker by tracing a large round circle die. The smaller diecut circles using a Kaisercraft Nesting Circle Die set (on sale in the SMS shop!!) continue the stitched theme.

I love the colours in this Simple Stories school collection, which matched the sequins so well! Those cork letters are just great!

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!” 🙂
