Rachel here sharing my first Project Life post on this blog. This year, I decided to scrapbook in a 9×12 album incorporating both pocket pages and traditional layouts – I could never give those up completely! I talk more about my plans in this post on my blog.
So many gorgeous products were just recently released.. Did you pick up a lot? If so, this is a great post for some inspiration! I’m using lots of new products from the shop.
I wanted to use lots of blues to bring out the snowy scenery. I actually ended up using mostly old paper scraps to fill the squares + some silver starry vellum. I was so excited to order the new Shimmerz Acri Tonez – I love the matte look of the finished paint. In the Navy, found here, did not disappoint! And I love the layered look of that same color word on top of it. Oh and I recently discovered how handy an alpha stamp set can be for PL – Love the one I’m using lately by Concord & 9th.
When it comes to sequins, I really love muted colors. Sometimes I’ll add white to mellow out some mixes – I’m just not so great at venturing out with bright colors. I was instantly drawn to My Clementine, a gorgeous new mix from the shop with just the perfect amount of color.
Once I had all of my paper scraps and pictures placed, I added some exclusive felties from the shop, stitching on a white snowflake and adhering a navy heart. I just love how well so many of the products in the shop are coordinating!
I finished off my layout by adding a cork heart painted white to the bottom center square – I felt like it needed a little something to balance out my spread.
Anyone else working with 9 x 12 this year?
Thanks for stopping by!
Hello and Happy Sunday!! This is Megan here to share my very first post for SpiegelMom Scraps. I am so excited to share this layout with you using some awesome products from the store!!
I thought it would be fun to do a weekly Scraplift on the Sundays that I post and for this first one I picked a layout I saw on pinterest posted by D’lish Scraps and made by Sue Plumb.
I absoluetly loved the layers and mixed media! It’s so gorgeous!
Here’s my layout with all of my little tweaks and personality thrown in:
I really love how it turned out! I wanted to make it my own layout so instead of using a stencil on the background I decided to use my purple Amethyst Heidi Shine and the packaging technique with some water.
I love this photo of a dog we had a long time ago. There was a little space to the right of the photo so I decided to put the title there and one of my embellishment clusters. Behind the photo I have a medium glassine bag that I spread ‘I Lilac You’ Dazzlers paste onto to get a cool effect on. I layered a 6×6 pattern paper from the Fancy Free collection behind that and then a large glassine bag that I spread ‘Coral me Crazy’ Dazzlers onto. I really like the texture the Dazzlers add to the bags!
I really wanted to use these Birds of a Feather Felties and I really liked the long skinny one that I decided to use to help ground my title. I clustered the others around and layered them on top of each other.
In each of the 3 clusters I put a little bit of twine from my Citrus Twist Kit that I used for this layout as well as yellow and pink sequins from the Hot Right Now Sequin mix, the cute little pink flowers from the Raspberry Daisy Dream sequin mix and in the cluster above I also included 3 hearts from the Hearts on Fire sequin mix.
My third cluster I put up in the top right hand corner with a cluster of banners and tags as well as sequins, a felt feather and a resign word piece.
Thanks for stopping by today!! You can find my process video below or on my YouTube channel here.
I’ll be back next Sunday with another Scraplift! I hope you have a great and inspired Sunday!
Hello! Amy (The Craft Bunny) here today to share two watercolor cards. They are both encouragement cards and super easy to make. Here is my first card.
I created a sky using a wash of Peerless watercolor in different shades of blue. I stamped the sentiment with black pigment ink and I did some doodling with a black pen. I finished the card with some Cloudy Days Felties. I used the medium-sized and small-sized clouds here and created a visual triangle. Clean and simple. Done!
The second card is a bit darker as I wanted a night sky for the Gold Confetti.
This time I used darker colors in blue. I sprinkled some salt on my panel and let it air dry. I used some fine salt I have at home so the effect wasn’t very obvious. For more dramatic effect, you can use kosher salt or sea salt. Then I gold heat embossed my sentiment. Finally, I used a paint brush to add Ranger Multi Medium Matte and sprinkled Gold Confetti and Gold Star Confetti all over. Tap off the excess and let dry.
I hope you like my cards! If you want the full supply list, head over to my blog.
On a completely different note, have you seen the sneak peeks of Spring Blooms and Pinky Pie mixes? Oh my…. They are screaming Spring to me! I just love these colors! What’s better is they are both in the shop now! Jody, just take my money!!
