Creative Cards with Karla – Crazy Bird Christmas!

Hi! It’s Karla back today for a Creative Card feature. This month our theme is winter and tools – fun!! Of course, with Christmas around the corner, I wanted to get a few more Christmas cards made, so I pulled out my Cuttlebug, dies and stamps and three of the new sequin mixes from the SpiegelMom Scraps Store – Birthdays and Balloons, Happy Happy Winter and Puppy Dog Tails! I really love how the bright colours that I chose from these mixes look so fun and festive.

These crazy birds just make me laugh everytime I see them, and I’m sure that whoever I give this card to will share a smile. I used a Pretty Pink Posh die and my Cuttlebug to diecut this neat scalloped square before watercolouring my little guy and adding a cute little Santa hat.

Inside, I stamped a sentiment from the Tim Holtz Crazy Bird Sentiment stamp set and used some bright, fun sequins for a pop of colour.

Scrapbooking with Karla – First Day Layout!

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!

Pocket Page Scrapbooking with Karla – Happy Birthday Canada!

Hi friends! It’s Karla here today with a fun birthday layout for this week’s theme on the SpiegelMom Scraps blog – ‘Scrapbook a Birthday You Normally Wouldn’t’! Well, since it was recently Canada’s 150th birthday, I thought I’d use this opportunity to scrapbook Canada Day! I grabbed the¬†Honor Guard, Be True 2 You and My Clementine¬†sequin mixes to match with my photos and the papers I was using. I really love mixing and matching the amazing colours in each sequin mix! I love the iridescent colours in the¬†My Clementine¬†mix – when I put it on my paper it took on a beautiful green. And the¬†Honor Guard¬†has a gorgeous red – perfect for 4th of July and Canada Day, but also wonderful for any time you need a pop of red colour!

I used the awesome Strong & Free collection from Wild Whisper and grabbed some of their 4×6 and 3×4 cards as well as some of the patterned paper from the 12×12 sheets. I layered some of the diecut and cork (linked below) and stamped a date. Now, I don’t know about you, but I can NEVER get those date stamps to work right the first time, lol! So, I just roll with it and make it look like I meant for it to look like that ūüėČ The maple leaf journaling card was beautiful, but of course I love adding a few sequins to make it shine!

This fun Happy Birthday cutfile and the ones I used above are FREE HERE, along with lots of other awesome cutfiles! I used a gold pen to colour in the flames and add an ombre effect to the letters. The secret to getting the files down in the right spot after you cut them is to lay the negative cut down and then glue in your cuts. After, you simply pull up the negative frame. I used a border strip from the Wild Whisper papers and added a row of sequins with Glossy Accents. A few more of the cutfiles layered over top and a little maple leaf tag hanging on some SpiegelMom Scraps Hunter Green burlap string completes this card!

Here’s a look at the SpiegelMom Scraps sequin mixes I used today – Honor Guard, Be True 2 You and My Clementine! You can find the SpiegelMom Scraps Hunter Green burlap string¬†in the store as well.

Emoji Layout with Karla – I Love Your Sweet Face!

Hello friends!! Karla here today with an emoji layout using the awesome Free cutfiles on the blog and the Gotta Love Emoji sequin mix! Our theme this week is Emoji Love, so I definitely wanted to scrap these cute pics of my daughter playing dress up. I added some Cork Confetti Stars and Chunky Hearts to my page as well. If you love these hearts and stars as much as I do, you’re going to want to stock up! They are being discontinued to make room for fun new things coming and won’t be restocked.

I used some Shimelle Starshine papers, Pink Paislee Take Me Away ephemera and little metal clips from my stash and followed along with the sketch from the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine July Sketchy Challenge. I love cutting pieces from doilies and tucking them behind my photos! You can find similar ones in the SMS Store HERE.

Before I print my photos, I save them in the Project Life App as 3×4’s and try to add a bit of journaling on the cards in the app. I find it definitely helps me remember those little moments that I might otherwise forget. Then, I can slip them into pocket pages or make a scrapbook layout with them and my journaling is complete.

After I diecut this sentiment, I left the paper and the diecut letters on the mat and used my Distress Inks and Distress Oxides to sponge colour in an ombre effect before removing them. I stamped the Sweet sentiment from a Your Next Stamp cling stamp and fussy cut around it before gluing it down.

Hello everyone, Mandi here with my last post. This time it is an anniversary card that features May Arts Burlap String, Tutti Frutti Dazzlerz Texture Paste, Chunky Cork Hearts, Sunny Smiles, Silver Stardust Sequin Confetti and Gold Stardust Sequins.

Design Team

I thought painting have of the hearts with the Dazzlerz was a great way to add a little extra wow. When the paste is wet apply the sequins. I just sprinkled them on to the surface and pressed them in with a stick.

I love who this card looks even when it is laying sown flat.  The sequins on the top and the cluster at the bottom adds a lot of drama without the bulk.

Thanks for stopping by and having me as a guest for this month.

Album/journal cover by Lea

Good ¬†Thursday¬†girls, today a little late but I hope you enjoy my¬†project : it’s the cover of an album / journal on which I am working. The cover is completely handmade made with¬†recovery cardboard ¬†and cotton fabric. Once I built the cover I painted, printed and embellished it with stencils and different Shimmerz ¬†colors. The result is very colorful and sparkling, thanks to the sequins that I put here and there to give light points. To complete the cover instead I used embellishments (doily, shipping tags, mini Clothspins, die cut) from the neutral color, so the cover did not appear too heavy. I have a lot of fun doing it.

Next album /  journal completed. See you soon and good creativity for all. xoxo Lea
