Mixing Wood Veneers & Kraft with Color + DT Peak!

Hello everyone! Jody here today with a layout share & a little Design Team sneak peak!! First up, my layout. These last several weeks have been crazy busy for me which led me to create my first creative group on Facebook. It’s called “15 Minutes 2 Scrap” and it’s deticated to carving out time in our busy lives to breathe and create, even if it’s just for 5 minutes. This is seriously the only way I get anything done these days between working full time outside my home, family priorities, building our new home, running my small business & managing whatever else life throws my way. Sometimes all I need is 5 or 10 minutes to decompress by crafting a little. That’s exactly how this layout came together over a few days.  5 minutes at a time!
I used some Webster’s Pages paper & stickers from my stash, Chic Tags & Studio Calico wood veneers, Recollections Kraft heart stickers, Pink Paislee white rubber title “travel” and a Kraft heart from American Crafts.

I also positioned a tiny yellow heart sticker in the middle of our youngest daughter Abby and my “Pa” right onto my photo. I love doing this on photos at times, like in this case to show a special relationship. I love the look of natural Kraft with these muted colors in the papers. It’s just bold enough to stand out but it’s not overbearing.Thanks so much for stopping by tonight! I hope you were inspired to try this combo sometime. Feel free to join the Facebook group by clicking HERE!  I’d love to see you over there!  Lastly, here’s a peak at a few projects submitted by my new Sparklers Design Team!  Can you name the designers??@spiegelmomscraps, #spiegelmomscraps #DIY #scrapbook #watercolor #mixedmedia #cardmaking

See you soon!  Design Team reveal will be the week of January 17th!!  Get ready to be wowed!! 

 

Project Life, 15 Minutes at a Time

Hello all! I’m back today with a quick Project Life layout. These photos are from the first day of school, September 2, 2014.  I didn’t take many photos because I was too busy holding back those proud Mama tears many of us shed on that first day back. Sniff, sniff.  To create this layout I used Everyday Eclectic by Allison Kreft for Echo Park Paper. I just love the color combos in this line! 

Many of you have read about my creative method of “15 minutes to scrap” which I definitely hold myself to doing almost daily. This is a great method that works for me and my crazy busy life. I worked on this layout in very short periods of time, no longer than 15-20 minutes.   I started by cutting my papers to size and arranging them in the pockets along with my photos. 

During my second short scrap session, I pulled out my embellishments consisting of the Everyday Eclectic stickers Chic Tags wood veneers, Studio Calico wood veneers, enamel dots, paper now from Michael’s Craft Store etc.   During my last scrap session I began to stick things down and add the finishing touches like the wood veneers & enamel dots. After a total of about 45-55 minutes, this layout was done & in our 2014 scrapbook!! 

Thanks so much for spending your time with me today!! I hope you’ll give this method a try! I’d love to hear from you about scrapping 15 minutes at a time!! 

See you soon and remember …..

Do something creative today!
