Lately my projects have a theme..they’re all tiny and come together quickly. But most importantly, they allow me to really express my craftiness in the midst of crazy life. Definitely the #1 reason why I love mini albums so much.
I recently ordered “Night Moves” Coloringz from the shop.. a perfectly deep black Shimmerz mist- and knew I wanted to use it in contrast with something girly.
I cut down a piece of white textured cardstock and chose some watercolors that would contrast with the black and match the gorgeous “rockin’ pink ombre” sequin mix. I brushed some color on and once that dried I splattered the black around.
I matted my picture with patterned paper and vellum – Ada is the little black dog pictured along with my friend Katie. She is so ridiculously spoiled.. we went up to the mountains when there were a few inches on the ground and the temp was in single digits. Ada was not happy about walking around in the cold snow, so she picked her front paw up and began to limp HA. Wes and I know her tricks but Katie felt bad for her.
I adhered sequins all over the page – some with glue, some with mini staples. And spilled a few for good measure because they’re so pretty 😉
A few black and gold embellishments + stamping and journaling finish off this mini layout. Short on crafty time? Find some products you love and throw them together on a mini layout. You’ll love the results!
Hello hello everyone! The layout I am bringing you today is of my two grandchildren at the train museum, which they totally enjoyed. Spending time with these two is a lot of fun, don’t get me wrong there is some discipline involved, well not much. They are pretty good with their Nana and I truly adore being with them and they visit I just hate to say goodbye.
With that said today is my last post with the Spiegelmom Design Team. I had so much fun with Jody and the gals on the team and I so want to do it again in the near future. All of the products that are in the shop are amazing and if you have not ordered yet, I don’t know what your waiting for… you are missing out on the best sequin mixes, texture paste, cork die cuts, felt die cuts, and many other goodies. I enjoyed using all of them on my layouts and with this layout, I used a lot of the goodies from the shop on it as well. So let’s get started!
I used some the Dazzlerz, in “Coral Me Crazy” texture paste to make the small textured circles. The sequins I used are called Passion Flower, which I spread across the top of my layout and I also used a doily from the shop. Love this!
Here is a close up of the texture paste in Coral Me Crazy and the stencil I used is from Hero Arts.
The sequins are just fabulous! Love this mixture of the Passion Flower mixture. The paper circles are punched out of some paper from my stash.
The wood veneer is from a Studio Calico kit from a while ago.
Here is a close up of the sequins again. The tissue circles are from an older Felicity Jane kit.
I thought I would do some hidden journaling, which I used a glassine bag as one of the layers so I can slide the journal card right under the photo by a tap that I stapled onto a 3×4 journal card. This is something you can do with your layout if you have a lot of embellishments covering it.
Thank you so much for stopping by today and I also want to thank all of you who have left such wonderful comments each time I posted a layout. This has been one of the best teams I have ever been on and I am going to miss it. Take care all of you and don’t forget to support Spiegelmom Scraps by stopping by the shop and placing your oder today. You can use Felicia15 till the end of the month for 15% off your order. Bye bye everyone!
If you’re reading this then you’ve made it to Wednesday – halfway through the week following a holiday weekend, which is always a struggle for me.
I’ve been having fun lately experimenting with different shaker pockets. I love the layering capabilities! Today I’m sharing a shaker pocket title page made with my trusty fuse tool. Projects like this are much easier if you have a heat proof mat with measurements – so you can get your fusing centered.
I love adding different sized page protectors in Project Life to make it a little more eclectic. I began by trimming my page protector to a 6×12 size. Working first on the rectangular inside pocket holding the “XOXO” I fused 3 sides, added the thicker, and fused the top. The fact that the title I chose was adhesive helped hold it in place. But if you’re going for a more whimsical look you could just add any cut file (or any ephemera for that matter!) I then added the sequins to the page protector. I chose to use Strawberry Bubblegum – a perfect mix for spring! I think lighter sequins look best when layered over a layout – you could also try these or these. Lastly, I used my mini stapler to attach a white heart feltie and my shaker page was complete! SO easy.
I wanted to keep the layout underneath fairly simple so both would be highlighted and not too busy. I used papers from Felicity Jane Studio and coordinating ephemera. I used a few embellishments from my stash including a white lace doily and cork heart from the shop.
Notice that little bit of shine underneath my photo? You can brush on some Shimmerz Paste-eez like this one for a little bit of bling.
I love putting my finished spreads in my album to admire how they turned out! I hope you’re inspired to do a little experimenting with shaker pockets
The Monday after losing an hour of sleep is always a hard one.. I’m here today with a colorful spring spread hoping to brighten the first day of your work week!
I really love capturing the details of our home.. I wanted to incorporate some floral prints into this spread of the new flower arrangement in our kitchen. I used several papers from the Felicity Jane “Jane” March kit.. my first one. I made a deal with myself that if I were subscribing to a new kit, I would do a better job of incorporating products that I already have.
I have lots of Shimmerz products from the shop hanging out in my craft room. I chose this shade of green to add a little detail to my spread (like those dots highlighting the “photos I love” journaling card) and create an ombre filler card. I absolutely love using Acri-Tonez with water – it creates a water-color look that still has a matte-like finish! So great!
Do you have some shimmerz Acri-Tonez in colors you struggle to use? Try using it in combination with water for a water-color effect. It really softens the color!
I thought cork products were the perfect balance for this spread – the natural tones worked well with the pastel color palette! I used arrows and hearts from the shop.
I love the layering of sequins (this mix!) on cork – and the staple just adds some whimsy! Fun fact, I keep forgetting to order tiny staples for my tiny AC stapler, so those are full sized staples.. HA. Also on my page are thickers from Amy Tangerine’s “Finders Keepers” and Dear Lizzy “Saturday” collections.
I really like how the page on the right looks without any pictures, really functioning as a pretty title page. Especially since the left side is so full of color.
Hope you felt inspired today!
Hello my fellow crafty peeps! Have you ever found a photo and did not want to scrap it? Well I did, for years I did not want to scrap the photo below, but I finally decided to do it this time around. It is a photo of my husband and me during our martial art years…Lol. This is just too funny!
I used a few products from the Spiegelmom shop and I even altered a wood veneer! Take a look below.
I used some Pandora’s Ombre sequins and they are just awesome! The combination of colors is just beautiful.
Here is another close up of the altered title, which I used some AcriTonez in white from the SpiegelMom Shop! I used 2 coats and then I used some stickles to give it some sparkle and some washi tape to keep a straight line while painting on the wood veneer. The white acrylic star is from one of my Felicity Jane kits.
A touch of journaling to give it a short story about the photo.
Here is another close up of those beautiful sequins…you must get these, they are awesome! The mist I used is called Blue Jeans Vibrez and that is also in the Spiegelmom Shop. The rubber embellishment is from my Felicity Jane kit along with the papers.
Thank you for stopping by and be sure to get to the Spiegelmom Shop for some goodies of your own. Oh and be sure to use the code Felicia15 to get 15% off your first order! Have a great and marvelous day!
Hello hello! Have you ever done something and then look back on it and ask yourself, “Wow did I really do that?”. Well I have and I probably won’t do it again, but at least I tried it once. What I did was I actually went on a tram that was over 9,000 feet high! Yes, you heard me, 9,000 feet. On the way up it was really beautiful and I was able to get a lot of photos, but on the way down, I got a little motion sickness because of the speed of the tram, which was quicker than going up to the mountain top. It was a great adventure and I have memories from it, but I will not go on a tram for a while. On that note, check out the layout below!
So on this layout I used some Shimmerz spray in Blue Jeans to create the design on the back ground of this layout and a stencil by Prima.
The sequins that I used on this layout are called 2 Cool for U and they in the Spiegelmom Scraps shop and they match perfectly with the colors on the layout. Here’s a close up of the design on the layout. The alphas are from my Felicity Jane kit, Sophia.
Here is a close up of the journaling, which I did diagnaly on the layout for effect.
Another close up of the sequins from the Spiegelmom Scraps shop.
I used one of my Fiskars punches to create the border strip decoration on the bottom of the layout.

Hello hello everyone and welcome to the Spiegelmom Scraps blog! Staying warm and cozy is one of the best things to do during the winter cold months. Food plays even a bigger part of being warm and cozy and some people even call this time of year the season for comfort food. Well since I have been trying my best to stay on a proper diet, I am finding salads to be my comfort food believe it or not, Lol!
Here is the sketch that was created by Sara Scraps and I just love this one! Also be sure to check out the LGS (Let’s Get Sketchy) blog, where they will be using the same sketch!
So here is a layout of my new found comfort food! Salomon salad with a almond flavored vinagerette salad dressing. It was SO GOOD!
This was so fun to create and I used my favorite embellishment! Sequins! Yes these are new sequins called 2 Cool 4 U by the Spiegelmom Scraps. I used them to add more interest to the layout. Here is a closer look.
I also used the Felicia Jane kit for October called Emeline that is where the wood grain hearts came from along with all the papers and puffy stickers.
I just love the combination of the puffy stickers and sequins, they just give this layout such character.
Take a look at those puffy alphas! They work out perfectly for the title of this layout.
Be sure to go to the Spiegelmom Scraps shop to pick up your 2 Cool 4 U sequins and you can use code Felicia15 to get a discount! Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
Hello! Welcome! I seem o be on the black and white photo kick again. This time I used some black and white elements on the page with just a little pop of color added on along with some black and white papers. Included on this layout, which I think makes the layout is the Wedding Bells sequins by Spiegelmom Scraps. Take a look!
I just love how this turned out! I cut the title and the tag from a cut file from a kit. Once I did that I used some of the rubber embellishments from my kit.
I love how these sequins look on this layout against the black and white paper and embellishments. Versa Fine ink is what I used to stamp the elements on the page including the darker circles.
With the title nestled in with some cut files and rubber embellishments, it helps it stand out with just the right amount of color on the layout.
Then I journaled within the circles that are on the layout.
Thank you for stopping by and be sure to check out the Spiegelmom Scraps shop for the Wedding Bells sequins that I used for this layout, which shows how I put it all together. Also check out the video that I have so you see how it all came together! Take care!
