Scrappy Saturday-Being Weird

Good morning ladies!!

I hope your enjoying your weekend so far!! This is our last weekend before the kiddos go back to school and oh man we have a lot going on! We have our oldest sons 1st football game of the season, our youngest is turning one!!! Omg! And making sure everything is together for school Monday. And in there some where I want to try and find some more time to scrap!! lol

But on to the actually layout I came to share with you this morning. Lol This week over on the Spiegelmomscraps blog were scraplifting the fantastic Katty Miranda!

Here is the layout I chose to scraplift of hers:

To start my layout I pulled out a few of my favorite shimmerz and played with the packaging technique on the background. Mine is no where near as bright as Katty’s but I loved the way the colors blended together and went with the Create Paper  Confetti collection that I had decided to use. I know I could have made them stand out more but I decided to not use gesso on the background and keep it a but lighter.

I wanted to scrap this goofy picture of me and my hubby playing with one of the Snapchat filters. I have a lot of these kind of pictures! Me and my kiddos play with it all the time too! lol I layered a few papers behind my picture and then moved on to embellishing.

I wanted to add a lot of embellishments like Katty had, but I didn’t want to use so many flowers since this was just a goofy pic of me and my hubby. I mean dont get me wrong I could have easily used flowers, but I wanted to use some of the pointed circles that were in the collection already. But I did add a few flowers in there too!

After adding the paper embellishments in there and getting them where I wanted them, I stuck them down and started playing with some of the chipboard pieces and other 3D embellishments. And pulled out my cute little Shooting cork stars and layered them in where I wanted them.

I always save the best for last! I pulled out one of my favorite sequin packs right now, Fairy Garden. I love playing with my sequins! lol I added those beautiful little shiny pops of color here and there on my layout and was done.

I loved scraplifting Katty this week, I had fun with it! And I hope your liked my take on Katty’s layout!!

And remember if your looking for some pretty shinys to add to your stash, make sure to head to the SpiegleMomscraps store and use my name to get 15% off!!

I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!

Creative Cards with Karla – Stitched Laundry Birthday Card!

Howdy friends! It’s Karla back today to share a fun stitched birthday card! Now, usually you wouldn’t associate laundry with FUN but when you combine the Lawn Fawn Loads of Fun stamps along with lots of SpiegelMom Scraps sequins, burlap string and felties, you can’t help but have fun!! Our theme this week is to add stitching to a project, so I got out my sewing machine and added a zigzag stitch over the Black May Arts Burlap String to add a little clothes line to hang my laundry on. I have lots of fun stitches that I’ve never even used on my machine, so I thought I’d try a cross stitch one along the bottom of the card. I love how that turned out, and I’ll definitely be using it more! I even grabbed some Kaisercraft Nesting Stitched Squares Dies and cut a background from some pink Shimelle Starshine paper.

Today I pulled out Fairy Garden, Be True 2 You and Jaded Hearts sequin mixes to use on my card. After I coloured my images with Jane Davenport coloured pencils and added some paper piecing with some Shimelle Starshine papers I had lots of fun adding these sequins!

I used one of the heart felties to do some handstitching on, doing a ‘blanket stitch’ around the edge, sewing on a button and adding sequins by stitching a ‘french knot’ into the center of each pretty little flower. A quick online search will show you lots of handstiches you can try!@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @lawnfawn @americancrafts @shimellelaine @kaisercraft #smssequins #sequins #sequinlove #handstitching #machinestitching #fauxstitching #diecutting #stamping #paperpiecing #cardmaking #greetingcard #happybirthday #felt #coloredpencils #laundry #loadsoffun

Inside, I used another of the Kaisercraft Nesting Stitched Squares Dies, inked and stamped with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink.

Here’s a look at the supplies I used from the SMS Shop:

Fairy Garden, Be True 2 You and Jaded Hearts sequin mixes

Black May Arts Burlap String

Kaisercraft Nesting Stitched Squares Dies

The Heart Felties are now sold out! There are a few Felties left in the shop and they are being discontinued to make room for fun, new things. But don’t let that stop you from grabbing some felt and diecutting or handcutting your own to try some stitching techniques on!

 

I popped my cute laundry up with foam dots to add some dimension, and I can’t wait to give this to a special friend on their birthday! I’m sure I’ll even think about how much fun I had making this card while I’m doing real laundry later today 😉

Valentines Day Shaker Card by Katty Miranda

Cards, tags

Hello friends! Happy Valentines Day! I hope you are all having a wonderful day! Today I am sharing a simple cute shaker Valentines Day Card. I am using the Crate Paper Hello Love  Collection patterned papers to create my card. I cut out two overlapping hearts on my Silhouette Cameo and created a shaker card using the Spiegelmom Scraps Love Beats SequinsFairytale 2 Sequins & the Gold Garland Sequin Confetti. I love this mix of sequins. To embellish my card I added some chipboard birds, clear acetate words and puffy alphabet stickers from the Maggie Holmes Shine Collection.

FullSizeRender-15

I finished it off with some faux black stitching around the whole card.

Love us card

Thanks for stopping by! XOXO -Katty

Laura Rumble’s Guest Designer Wrap Up

Hello Everyone!  It’s Laura here for my final guest designer project.

I have used my favourite product from SpiegelMom Scraps.  You’ll know what I mean… You open up a parcel of crafty stash.  You are excited… you look through each item one by one – oohing and aahing as you go.  There will normally be one item that you pick up twice, or three times even.  That was the case with the Fairytale Sequin Mix – it is a beautiful mix of sequins.

@spiegelmomscraps @laurarumble

It is pretty and girly, with a touch of the magical about it.  However for this scrapbook layout I went bright and tropical and the sequin mix suits it perfectly.

I always use white for my background – this was a little challenge to myself… use something outside of my usual safe items.

IMG_1035I have used the Citrus Bliss collection included in my kit from British kit club Like For Ever.

I firmly believe that there has never been and will never be a craft project that can’t be improved with a sprinkling of sequins!

Thank you very much, Jody, for having me as May’s guest designer.  I really enjoyed using your products!

Laura

Well Laura, the pleasure was definitely mine!  Thank you so much for being my special guest this month!  ~ Jody
