Make It Yours Monday~ I Love Fall (and You)….

Happy Monday everybody and welcome back for another Make It Your’s Monday! I have a layout for you today that combines both the Girly Glitter AND Sugar Maple sequin mixes for a fresh fall look!

I began my layout with a piece of almond cardstock trimmed down 1/4″ on each side. I inked the edges with a dark brown ink to give it a distressed look and then, added the dark brown pattern paper, after I crumbled it up a bit to give it the look of a fall leaf! I added a strip of amber paper to hide the seam of the woodgrain, and to add more color.

Next, I took my photo and matted it on some gorgeous warm orange cardstock to make it pop. Then, into my fall paper scraps I went to create a layered look behind that. I wanted to give it an almost quilted look, so i used different patterns in each of the corners, including some gold glitter cardstock. For some added texture, I added an 8″ doily behind the entire photo mat. Some fall leaves, that I created with the FREE Spiegelmom Scraps cut file, Lovely Leaves, were tucked into each corner, after I used a Versamark pen and copper embossing powder to give them some details.

My title is to the right of the photo cluster, and I wanted to use a common fall phrase and give it a twist! Using a combination of tiny tile letters and Orange thickers, it reads, I Love Fall & *You* most of all. I love how it fit perfectly in that space and how it came out!! More of the die cut leaves, cut very small!!!, were sprinkled around the title area. I matted the entire layout on a piece of pretty fall plaid pattern paper and then, got to the sequins! The pretty yellows from the Girly Glitter mix as well as the iridescent ivory’s from Sugar Maple mix were just perfect for even more texture, color and sparkle to finish this fun fall leave pile layout!!

I hope you have a crafty Monday and dont forget to stop by the Spiegelmom Scraps shop for some of these amazing sequins as well as the amazing free cut files!! When you do,

Scrapbooking with Karla – Paper Layering Scraplift

Hello friends! Karla here today with another scrapbook page following along with our Scraplift theme – and this week it’s the amazing Kat Benjamin or KraftyKat as she’s also known! I love her clean style, and I love how she coordinates the products she’s using! She also makes awesome pocket pages <3

I decided to scraplift Kat’s page Hey Handsome – here’s a look at it:@katbenjamin @kraftykat9

I really liked the layers of paper she used and the striking black title, so even though I went with a totally different colour scheme I followed the basic layout. I really love scraplifting – I think it makes you try different ideas and styles that you might not otherwise, and you just might find something you love! I chose an older collection I had in my stash – Jubilee by My Mind’s Eye and the awesome NEW sequin mixes from the SpiegelMom Scraps Store: Star Spangled, Girly Glitter and Ferris Wheel!

I used a 1″ circle punch to cut out coordinating papers and placed them on in a similar way to Kat’s page. I even pop-dotted one to give it a little extra dimension. I pulled colours from my photo and paper when choosing the sequins and I grouped them around each circle.

I really liked the black title on Kat’s page, so I decided to use one of the acetate overlays from this collection, backed by a piece of patterned paper. I added a strip of the arrow paper to add some colour above the title and used a chipboard sentiment to add dimension. A few more sequins above and below the title follow Kat’s layout, and I added my journaling by first penciling in straight lines and writing with a Faber Castel pen.
