Fast Layout > Using a Background Cut File

@SPIEGELMOMSCRAPS @SILHOUETTE @pinkpaislee @paigeevans, #spiegelmomscraps #scrapbook #cutfile #silhouette #paigeevans #pinkpasilee #takemeawaycollection

Happy Ground Hogs’ Dag!!  Jody here today.  Although I don’t take much stock in a ground hog determining whether or not I continue to freeze my butt off, it’s still a cute yearly tradition here in the U.S!!  

Today, I’m sharing a layout I literally put together in 20 minutes!!  We all need layouts like these for busy, busy times!  I shared a couple sneaks of this on the SMS Instagram a few weeks ago and today I’m excited to share it with you all. I started with a FREE cut file (found on the Free Cut Files page here) cut out on American Crafts white cardstock and paper from Pink Paislee/Paige Evans, Take Me Away.  I chose the Flurries Background cut file I designed and simply layered it over my Pink Paislee paper.  I added a Chantilly Lacy 8 inch doily, some Pretty Little Studio Hello Heather papers and my photo, then adhered that onto my background.  I also added some craft foam under my photo to pop it up a little.  

One other tidbit I’d like to share is my struggle to actually use cut files!  Crazy right?!  My scrap studio is no longer in the room, or even the same floor as my computer which causes a problem obviously.  So, to solve this dilemma I have been cutting files while I’m doing other things at my computer like checking email, working on taxes (UGH help me now LOL), etc.  It’s pretty easy to get my cut file set up cut, and then let it run while I’m working on other tasks.  I just wanted to share that with you all since I’m sure I’m not the only one that faces challenges like this.  So now, I have several different cut file background and others ready to go whenever I want to sneak away for 10 minutes to create in my space!!

@spiegelmomscraps @silhouette @pinkpasilee @paigeevans, #srapbooking #spiegelmomscraps #cutfile #silhouette #pinkpaislee

I simply added my title, which are cardboard Thickers from American Crafts (maybe from Dear Lizzy or Amy Tan??) and Foam Thickers from the Pink Paislee Take Me Away collection.  Finally I sprinkled some Amore sequins in a few areas.  I called it good in 20 minutes you guys!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!  I hope you are inspired to pre-cut some background cut files and have them ready to go for creating some super quick layouts!!

Cuts2Luv Product Swap Blog Hop

untitled-1

Hello everyone, Jody here today for a very special blog hop! The Sparklers and I are very excited to announce our product swap with the fabulous flair shop, Cuts2Luv!! We have been planning this for months and are super excited the day is finally here!! Caroline from Cuts2Luv is a total a sweetheart and her flair are wonderful, so be sure to check her shop out HERE.  This is a long hop, so let’s get to it!

For today, I’m sharing a layout I created based off a sketch I designed and have included some brand new Shimmerz products, a free cut file (found HERE), and some lovely flair from Cuts2Luv!

I used this sketch as my inspiration and this FREE SpiegelMom Scraps cut file to create all my snowflakes. You can find the cut file HERE and the sketch can be saved right from this post. After cutting the Flakey background for another project, I saved all those lovely flakes for more projects! I stuck pretty close to my sketch, which always makes my scrapping go way faster.  I  just turned the sketch on it’s side to mix it up a little bit.  After all, I did just have an insane weekend LOL!!!  I started with white American Crafts cardstock and used several of the die cut snowflakes to as masks, painting over them with In The Navy AcriTonez from Shimmerz Paintz.  This technique is great when you want to create your own background and want specific colors!  I then used some of those same die cut snowflakes on my layout and layered them with the Blustery Day Feltie Snowflakes.  LOVE THESE!!  

The new AcriTonez are amazing, self-priming paints.  They go on with a chalky-like feel and dry completely matte, almost like chalkboard paint does. It’s the coolest!!  I also completely painted over the “Today” in my title.  It was black and the AcriTonez cover it beautifully.@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @americancrafts @Shimmerzpaints @amytangerine @cuts2luv, #spiegelmomscraps #scrapbook #cuts2luv #shimmerzpaints

After my background dried, which was super fast, I added some layers of Pink Paislee Moonstruck behind my photos to bring out the bright pink and navy.  I added some contrast with a Corky Flake (die cut cork snowflakes) and love how they stand out!15895056_10212346760050745_4755489259166753365_n

One of my favorite things to do when scrapbooking is adding small details around my page. It keeps your eye moving around the layout and gives it so much texture and interest.  Adding little details like Cut2Luv flair, SpiegelMom Scraps Sequins and splatters of Shimmerz sprays are my totally perfect finishing touches!  The navy blue splatters you see are Mama Sings the Blues Coloringz.  Caroline’s flair is fabulous!!  Layering it, like I did below is so much fun!  You’ll love the dimension and texture it adds to you layout!  Do check her out!!  Also pictured below are Tiny Heart Cork Confetti and Chasing Azul sequins.15966111_10212346760370753_4073962368382616117_n 15978069_10212346760850765_5285112350810972712_n

A few notes about my layout before you hop on to the Cuts2Luv blog.  Caroline and I love to give away prizes, SO be sure to leave comments on all the designer’s blog participating in the hop.  You have through Saturday, January 14th to leave comments and TWO winners will be announced on Monday January 16th in the Facebook event!  

Feel free to use it and tag #smssketches in your social media!

I hope you enjoy what I’ve created for you today and enjoy the rest of the hop!

Tuesday’s Talent with Sarah McClellan!

Hello SpiegelMom Scraps fans!  It’s Sarah on the blog again, today, bringing you my second guest designer project.  It is a two page, Project Life, layout of our Halloween festivities.  I usually do one, two page, Project Life layout per week, but when there are special events or holidays, I will do an extra two pages for it!  @spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @sarahmcclellan @cratepaperinc @AmericanCrafts, #spiegelmomscraps #scrapbook #DIY #ProjectLife #cratepaperinc #americancrafts #halloween #afterdark #sequins #gold #doily #shakerpocket #thickers #stickers #corkstars #midnightfeltstars @spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @sarahmcclellan @cratepaperinc @AmericanCrafts, #spiegelmomscraps #scrapbook #DIY #ProjectLife #cratepaperinc #americancrafts #halloween #afterdark #sequins #gold #doily #shakerpocket #thickers #stickers #corkstars #midnightfeltstars

I used papers, stickers, and a 12×12 cut-apart sheet from the Crate Paper After Dark collection. The After Dark collection included a Spooky Glitter Thicker pack that has shapes and phrases that I just had to use!  I was lucky enough to get a sewing machine from my mother-in-law this week, so I’ve used it on a lot of the cards.  I think adding stitched elements to your layouts adds amazing texture!  @spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @sarahmcclellan @cratepaperinc @AmericanCrafts, #spiegelmomscraps #scrapbook #DIY #ProjectLife #cratepaperinc #americancrafts #halloween #afterdark #sequins #gold #doily #shakerpocket #thickers #stickers #corkstars #midnightfeltstars

Here we have my title card.  I layered one of the 4″ Gold Foil Doilies under a tag and layered on Yellow Felt-Fetti Hearts,Midnight Felt Stars, and Studio Calico Wood Veneer Stars.

 I created a shaker pocket using half a packet of the Trick or Treat Sequin Mix!  I used my Fuse tool to seal it shut!@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @sarahmcclellan @cratepaperinc @AmericanCrafts, #spiegelmomscraps #scrapbook #DIY #ProjectLife #cratepaperinc #americancrafts #halloween #afterdark #sequins #gold #doily #shakerpocket #thickers #stickers #corkstars #midnightfeltstars #DIY

I absolutely love the Super Stars Cork embellies!  They are the perfect size for Project Life, just like most of the goodies in the shop!  Here I layered one under a word sticker!  I also love to do this with larger enamel dots!@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @sarahmcclellan @cratepaperinc @AmericanCrafts, #spiegelmomscraps #scrapbook #DIY #ProjectLife #cratepaperinc #americancrafts #halloween #afterdark #sequins #gold #doily #shakerpocket #thickers #stickers #corkstars #midnightfeltstars #DIY

Here you can see a close up of the machine stitched boarder.  I used another one of the 4″ Gold Foil Doilies and added a label sticker from Crate Paper After Dark.  I piled on the Studio Calico Wood Veneer and Super Star Cork stars.  I also used a bit of Heidi Swapp Color Shine in gold.   @spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @sarahmcclellan @cratepaperinc @AmericanCrafts, #spiegelmomscraps #scrapbook #DIY #ProjectLife #cratepaperinc #americancrafts #halloween #afterdark #sequins #gold #doily #shakerpocket #thickers #stickers #corkstars #midnightfeltstars #DIY

I layered on the felt, cork, and wood hearts and stars on this card!  To add some texture, I looped several strands of gold thread and stapled them in place! 

Well, that’s all from me today!  I hope that I can inspire you to get those memories scrapped.  However you document your memories, Jody will have just the right elements in her shop to help you make your projects shine!  I can’t wait to create another project to share with you next week!

Tuesday’s Talent ~ Round 2 with Amy Lee

Hi ladies and gents! Today I’m bringing to you a series of perfume bottle cards. I’ve been itching to make something like this but there doesn’t seem to be any perfume bottle stamps out there. So I’m going to make my own!

I started by searching for various perfume bottle images on Google. I replaced the brand names with sentiments and friends’ names. I used some special fonts to add character to the perfume bottles. Here are some of the fonts I used: MA SexyPapyrus and Noodle Script. Then I printed them out and fussy-cut them.

@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @thecraftbunny, #spiegelmomscraps #thecraftbunny #scrapbook #cardmaking #watercolor #washitape #sequins #loosesequins #etsy #craft #youtube #processvideo

I kept the perfume bottles black and white and created colorful backgrounds to highlight them. All the backgrounds are created with acrylic paints using different techniques – paint splattering, smooching and regular painting. I was just playing by ear.

I added washi tape to ground the focal point of the card. Finally, I finished the cards with sequins from SpiegelMomScrapShop and daisy cabochons from craftsutopia (ETSY). The sequins complement the colored background very well. I love the effect! The daisy cabochon reminds me of Marc Jacobs so I added it to the perfume bottle and it looked really cute.@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @thecraftbunny, #spiegelmomscraps #thecraftbunny #scrapbook #cardmaking #watercolor #washitape #sequins #loosesequins #etsy #craft #youtube #processvideo

I hope you like these cards as much as I do. Please click HERE if you’d like to see the process video. Have a wonderful day!

Farewell to Ka Slagowski, September’s Tuesday’s Talent

Today we are bidding farewell to Ka Slagoski, our Tuesday’s Talent this month. I have seriously enjoyed Ka’s posts and every little detail on her cards!  Thank you so much Ka.  I’m forever your fan!  I hope everyone enjoys, comments and shares Ka’s final guest designer post today.  

Hello everyone! It’s Ka here with my final post as SpiegelMom Scraps September Guest Designer! I’ve had so much fun designing with Jody’s awesome products! I hope you’ve enjoyed my creations and thank you so much for all the sweet comments and support! And a special thank you to Jody for inviting me to be to be part of SpiegelMom Scraps!

For today’s post, I made a birthday card with a matching birthday tag. I absolutely adore owls and think they are just some of the cutest critters. I decided to use the adorable owls images from the “Hoo Loves You” set from Whimsy Stamps to create today’s projects. @copicmarkers @WhimsyStamps @jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @mayartsribbon @studiocalico @americancrafts, #spiegelmomscraps #studiocalico #americancrafts #sequins #DIY #CardMaking #whimsyStamps #ink #stampI started the card by die-cutting a white stitched rectangle panel and masking the stitched edges with masking tape. I then, placed a Heidi Swapp Stencil over it and applied some mint ink all over the entire panel. I added some gray ink by lightly sponging around the edges.  To create the gray frame, I used the chisel end of a T4 Copic Marker to color in the masked stitches edges. This panel was adhered to a lavender card base. @copicmarkers @WhimsyStamps @jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @mayartsribbon @studiocalico @americancrafts, #spiegelmomscraps #studiocalico #americancrafts #sequins #DIY #CardMaking #whimsyStamps #ink #stampNext, I stamped the owls in gray ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I popped the owls up using foam dimensional adhesives and added an aqua chevron twill ribbon to ground them. I pulled out a Studio Calico Speech Bubble Wood Veneer and stamped “have a” and “birthday” to the speech bubble in black ink and then popped the speech bubble with foam dimensional adhesive. As a finishing touch, I scattered some sequins from the Sunny Day Sequins and Blue Lagoon Sequins Mix from SpeigelMom Etsy Shop. @copicmarkers @WhimsyStamps @jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @mayartsribbon @studiocalico @americancrafts, #spiegelmomscraps #studiocalico #americancrafts #sequins #DIY #CardMaking #whimsyStamps #ink #stampI thought it be fun to create a matching tag for the birthday card above. I did some stencil work on one of the SpiegelMom Scraps Medium Shipping Tag and matted it with a gray cardstock. I customized the “woo-hoo!” sentiment using Avery Elle Elle’s Alphas and stamped the sentiment from Newton’s Nook Designs Newton’s Birthday Bash set. @copicmarkers @WhimsyStamps @jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @mayartsribbon @studiocalico @americancrafts, #spiegelmomscraps #studiocalico #americancrafts #sequins #DIY #CardMaking #whimsyStamps #ink #stampThe owl and plum chevron twill ribbon were popped with foam dimensional adhesives. I finished the tag by adding the same mix of sequins as the card and tying yellow baker’s twine on top from SpiegelMom Scraps Etsy Shop.

@copicmarkers @WhimsyStamps @jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @mayartsribbon @studiocalico @americancrafts, #spiegelmomscraps #studiocalico #americancrafts #sequins #DIY #CardMaking #whimsyStamps #ink #stampI just love how this card and tag turned out!

Tuesday’s Talent ~ Cards with Ka

Hello SpiegelMom Fans! It’s Ka here to share two more cards with you! Today I am featuring gold products from SpiegelMom Scraps Etsy Shop. One of the most used metallic items in my stash is gold and second to it is silver. I love the different effects and looks of these metallic! They’re just so much fun!

Here is one of the gold products that I used on my card:@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @dearlizzy @americancrafts @mayartsribboninc

I decided to use the gold doily as a backdrop to help bring out the jar of bouquet. I know I didn’t do anything fancy to it, but I just love how it added the perfect shine to the card. The flowers from Avery Elle Petals and Stems set are stamped in pigment inks and carefully fussy cut. They were popped up on top of a jar which was also fussy cut from a patterned paper. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn Our Friendship Grows stamp set. I finished the card by wrapping the jar twice with a pink burlap string and tying that into a little bow.

Next gold products are these sparkly sequins and confetti:@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps

@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff

When it comes to these fun sparkling sequins, I thought a shaker card is called for. Since I wanted to create the look of a collection of shoes displayed in a store window at the mall, I decided to have the shoes stamped in two rows using Encore Gold pigment ink. I created the shaker using some Simon Says Stamp Stitched Squares Dies, an acetate sheet and the stamped panel of shoes from The Tons Stamps.@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff

I filled in my shaker with SpiegelMom Scraps Tiny Gold Stars, Gold Rush and Gold Garland Confetti and sealed my shaker with the sentiment panel. The entire shaker was adhered to a sparkly DCWV Black Glitter Paper. I know this is such a simple shaker, but sometime simple is the best to go!

That is all for me today! Thanks for popping in and checking out these two cards! I hope you enjoyed them! And as always, if you like to see the full supplies list, click HERE.  I’ll be back here again next Tuesday to share even more cards using more SpiegelMom Scraps products!

Tuesday’s Talent ~ Ka Slagoski is here!

Hello everyone! My name is Ka and I am beyond thrilled and honored to be a guest designer for Spiegelmom Scraps! I want to thank Jody for inviting me to guest design here and for all the awesome products she given me to create with. Every Tuesday, I’ll be sharing a card or two here for the month of September. Woo-hoo! Let me get started by sharing a little information about me, then we’ll move on to the cards.
profileI am a longtime papercrafter who have dabbled in many forms of paper crafts, but my true passion is creating cute and whimsical cards. When I’m not paper-crafting, you’ll find me watching my favorite comedy TV shows, playing games at Dave & Buster, playing tennis, and hanging out with my husband, family and friends. 🙂

Now, let’s move on to today’s cards. This first card was so much fun to create. I fell in love with the Shimmerz Paint Paste when I was playing with it. I think I may just need one in every color! 😉

Hello Sunshine 1

“Hello, Sunshine” Card

I started this card off by placing My Favorite Things Sunray Stencil over the white cardstock and sponged Mustard Seed distress ink, going outward from dark to light. Then, I rotated the stencil and filled in the gap by spreading the Shimmerz Paint Dazzlerz Lemon Drop Yellow paste with a long plastic palette knife. I set that aside to dry. 

Hello Sunshine 2

Once that was dried, I randomly added some Spiegelmom Scraps Glossy Black Sequins and some Pretty Pink Posh metallic sequins. I stamped the sentiment using Avery Elle Elle’s Alphas and cut them into small strips. I added a strip of One Way Arrow washi tape to the left side. I finished this card by popping the sunray panel up on the card base with foam dimensional adhesives.

Youre Awesome 1

“You’re Awesome” Card

 This next card, I decided to play with punches and patterns. When I first saw the Studio Calico Stars Wood Veneers in Spiegelmom Esty shop, I knew I wanted to make something with them. I decided to create a grid by scoring the cardstocks into thirds. Then I punched out some stars in 3 different patterned papers using a small star punch. I also punched out a tag with a scallop tag punch and stamped the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Quite the Pair set and white heat embossed the sentiment. Next, I adhered all the stars on the grid and sew some of the Maya Arts Burlap Strings from Spiegelmom Scraps Etsy Shop to the stars. Then, I added some Studio Calico Tiny Stars Wood Veneers on top of the stars for a fun look. The scalloped tag was popped up with dimensional adhesives and a green bow was tied on top. I finished the card off by popping the entire panel with foam dimensional adhesives onto a navy card base.

Youre Awesome 2 (1)

I had so much fun creating these two cards for Spiegelmom Scraps! I hope you enjoy today’s cards and if you like to see the full supplies list, make sure you swing by my blog here [http://stampingsmilesdesigns.blogspot.com/2015/09/guesting-at-spiegelmom-scraps-sneak-peek.html

Tuesday’s Talent ~ Juliana Michaels is in the house!

I’m super excited to have Juliana Michaels as Tuesday’s Talent here at SpiegelMom Scraps! She is one busy lady this month, and we are very lucky to have her here twice!  I’ve been a fan of Juliana since we ‘met’ via social media last year through this amazing hobby. (Seriously, where would we be without social media these days!!)  Her digital cutting files are fabulous and have helped push me outside of my creative comfort zone.  Last year I purchased a Silhouette Portrait die cutting machine and really enjoy adding this element into my scrapbooking.  If you haven’t ‘met’ Juliana before you can find her blog, Instagram and Facebook all linked up for you right here.  Juliana is also teaching for Big Picture Classes this time around, which is fabulous!!  Be sure to follow her on social media and subscribe to her newsletter!  Please give Juliana a warm welcome and enjoy her first post as Tuesday’s Talent!

I just loved the awesome colors in the Blue Lagoon Sequins and was inspired to create a beach themed layout because of them.

To go along with my layout I also created a summer themed digital cut file and I’m sharing that cut file with all you Spiegelmom fans! You can download the cut file here: Hello Summer Fun | Downloadable Cut File

I sprinkled the Blue Lagoon Sequins onto my layout and then adhered them using Glossy Accents. I also sprinkled in some of the Super Star Cork! Together they reminded me of the beach – the sequins for the water and the cork stars for the sand!

Guest Designer Laura Rumble Part 2!

Hello Everyone, and a big thank you to Jody for having me as Guest Designer for this month.  My second project for you is a scrapbook layout using doilies, seam binding and sequins from the SpiegelMom Scraps Etsy shop.

@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @mayartsribbon @mymindseyeinc @craftyribbons

I know the trend right now is for gelatos and watercolours – I have water soluble wax crayons – I guess kind of the same sort of thing.  I set to work on the white seam binding and doilies adding subtle touches of pastel colours, picked to match my patterned paper strips.

@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @mayartsribbon @mymindseyeinc @craftyribbons

 

Seam binding is great for taking colour.  I have never had a medium not take – I’ve used mists, inks, watercolour, pro markers, watered down acrylic paint, inktense pencils, and now soluble crayons.  Have a play… go on!

@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @mayartsribbon @mymindseyeinc @craftyribbons

As for the doilies, the more water I added the more fragile they became so I recommend not moving them until they are dry to avoid tearing.

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @mayartsribbon @mymindseyeinc @craftyribbons

Supplies:
Doilies
Sequins
Seam Binding 
Art Bars from Derwent
lace from Crafty Ribbons
patterned paper from My Minds Eye and Cocoa Vanilla

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @craftyribbons @mymindseyeinc @mayartsribbons

I’ll be back next Tuesday with a mini album full of sequins, cork and wood veneer… see you then, 
Laura

Highlighting the Gold Doilies

Good afternoon, everyone!  Kat here today sharing my first layout on the SpiegelMom Scraps blog. 

This year, my family did a “late Christmas” in January because we wanted to celebrate when we were all able to be together.  Our nieces were super excited for an extra Christmas celebration.  They got all cute in their new Christmas jammies, watched a movie and then opened presents.  I got some very cute photos of the two of them and did not want to wait a whole year before scrapping them!

I am so in love with the gold doilies right now so I really wanted to come up with a unique way to incorporate them into the layout and sort of highlight their “awesomeness”.  I ended up using them to create a fun background:

@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff, #spiegelmomscraps #doilies #sequins

I pulled some of my other favorite items from the store –star sequins, heart shaped wooden veneers – to create this fun layout of my two favorite girls.

For this layout I used the following items from the store:

Gold doilies

Apple Green sequins

Real Red sequins

Holiday Stars sequin mix

Studio Calico hearts & arrows wood veneers

What’s your favorite item from the shop right now?

Masking with Lemon Owl Die Cuts!

Happy Sunday scrappers!!  Today I’m sharing a layout I did last night after a long weekend at the Waterford Christmas Market Vendor Fair & Craft Show!! Whew!!  It was great to talk with so many wonderful people visiting our town!! I sold my Advent Countdown Calendars, which was awesome!  I just added remaining Advents to my Etsy Shop and have a special coupon for you!! Just use ADVENT40 to get 40% your Advent now through November 26th, 2014!!

So, for this layout I mixed up not two, but THREE different kits from Clique Kits!!  I used our November Homecoming Kit, our December Gossamer Blue Mini Kit and parts of our December Enchanted Meadow Kit!! How about that trifecta!!  To make it even sweeter, Enchanted Meadow has a fabulous stamp set from the Sweet Stamp Stop!!

First of all, I LOVE this grey wood grain paper with all the book print throughout it by Lemon Owl!!  It has such fantastic details I didn’t want to cover much of it up.  So I decided to put the die cut negative to good use by using them as a mask!  You can check out my post on Instagram HERE to see how I used the die cut negative as a mask.

Here are some close-ups!

Aren’t these little stamps from the Sweet Stamp Shop the sweetest!! I loved adding the words Sparkle & Shine along with the little sequins stamps to my layout!  I also colored the little wood veneers with a Sharpie marker 🙂

Today I’m showing just one way to use any type of fabric on a scrapbook layout, with more instructions on the Clique Kits Blog. These lovely stripes of silk material can be attached with a stapler, tacky glue or even sewn right onto your project!!
