Tuesday’s Talent | Sarah McClellan’s Holiday Goody Bags

Hello again SpiegelMom Scraps fans!  It’s Sarah again, on the blog, for my final project for November. As I said last week, I made something Christmassy!  I geared up and got in the Christmas mood last Wednesday when I made my test Christmas card and shared it on Facebook and Instagram. @spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @sarahmcclellan @heidiswapp @americancrafts, #scrapbook #card #holiday #christmas #DIY #goodbag #shakercard #sequins #spiegelmomscraps #heidiswapp #christmas #poppinpinksnowflakes #goldgarlandsequins #gold  Here is the card I made!  I used cards, envelopes, and ephemera from the new Heidi Swapp line from Joann’s called Oh What Fun.  I used a 4″ Gold Foil Doily and Gold Garland Confetti from SpiegelMom Scrap Shop.  Heidi even “liked” it on Instagram and commented on it!  Very exciting! Continuing in the Christmas spirit, I have three different Christmas projects to share with you today!sarah 9First is a vellum goodie bag from Cosmo Cricket.  I sealed the bag shut with a 4″ Gold Foil Doily. Then I made a 3×4 shaker pocket with an old pocket photo sheet protector and filled it with Poppin’ Pink Flurries, Gold Garland Confetti, and a few 1/4″ gold sequins from my stash.  I added a couple of the soon-to-be-in-the-shop Birds Of A Feather white felt feathers. Then I layered on a gold foil snowflake, a Basic Grey Juniper Berry kraft tag, and the “believe” die cut from the Oh What Fun Heidi Swapp collection.sarah 10

 Here is a close up of the goodie bag for more detail.  I also added a wood veneer snowflake on top from Michael’s and a few wood veneer stars from Studio Calico in the shaker pocket.sarah 11Here is goodie bag number two!  This time it is a kraft colored bag also from Cosmo Cricket.  I embellished it in the same way as the first, making a 3×4 sequin pocket and piling on the ephemera. This time I used another soon-to-be-in-the-shop sequin mix called Christmas Wishes.sarah goodie bag close up
Here is a close up of the goodie bag.   I also tucked a few wood veneer stars from Studio Calico in the shaker pocket.   Such a fun way to use a sequin mix!  The new Heidi Swapp collection is such a great match for the new sequin mixes in the shop!sarah 12

My last item is a gift tag.  I once again used the Heidi Swapp Oh What Fun collection.  The foundation of the tag is a 4×6 sequin pocket that I made using the same technique as in the goodie bags.  I filled it with the new Holiday Happiness mix which will be in the shop very soon!   On top I added a gold foil frame from my stash.  I also used a Queen & Co. chipboard star and punched a 2″ gold glitter circle for layering.  I tucked in a beautiful Birds Of A Feather white felt feather and added tiny letter stickers from Crate Paper After Dark. 

I have had so much fun this month creating projects for SpiegelMomScrapShop!  A BIG thank you to Jody for asking me to be her guest designer for November!  I had never done anything like this before and it has been an exciting leaning experience for me!  I look forward to joining the big SpiegelMomScraps blog hop on December 1st!  See you then!

Tuesday’s Talent ~ Sarah McClellan in the House!!!

Hi SpiegelMomScraps fans!  My name is Sarah and I was thrilled when Jody asked me to be her guest designer for November!  I am a thirty-something mom of two girls from Minnesota.  I have been a traditional 12×12 scrapbooker since 2007 and started Project Life in January of 2014.  

For my first project, I did this beautiful Project Life double spread for Week 37 of 2015.  I used papers and stickers from the Crate Paper Wonder Collection.  I used some Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine and Amy Tangerine Goodness Thickers from American Crafts.  My date stamper is from Becky Higgins with Staz-on ink in black.

On my Week 37 title card, I layered a Gold Foil Doily, a shipping tag, Crate Paper Wonder ephemera, and Cloudy Day Cork shapes.    I embellished with enamel shapes, yellow Felt-Fetti Hearts,  Gold Garland Confetti, and Indian Summer Sequin mix.  Enamel dots can be expensive and a great way to save money scrapping is by using sequins in place of enamel dots!

I love to make embellishment clusters on my Project Life spreads like this one.  Here I used another Gold Foil Doily, Crate Paper Wonder ephemera, and stickers, along with a few Thickers. I embellished with Cloudy Days Cork, some Gold Garland Confetti, and Indian Summer Sequins.

In this cluster, I used Cork-Fetti Hearts, along with the Crate Paper ephemera.  When I start a Project Life layout, I try to chose a couple of busier papers from the collection and the rest are from the base colors.  Also, I almost always get the coordinating cut-apart sheets.  I like to layer on the ephemera and stickers and then repeat design elements across my Project Life layouts to create a cohesive look.  I also try to embellish with the same items and only use color shine on a couple of cards.  I do all of my journaling on my antique Underwood typewriter.  

Well, that’s all from me this week.  I hope you all enjoyed my first project this month!  I am so enjoying using these goodies from SpiegelMomScrapShop!  I am looking forward to sharing more projects with you this month!  If you have any questions or would like to see more of my projects, you can find me on InstagramMy Blog and Youtube.

Tuesday’s Talent ~ Cards with Ka

Hello SpiegelMom Fans! It’s Ka here to share two more cards with you! Today I am featuring gold products from SpiegelMom Scraps Etsy Shop. One of the most used metallic items in my stash is gold and second to it is silver. I love the different effects and looks of these metallic! They’re just so much fun!

Here is one of the gold products that I used on my card:@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @dearlizzy @americancrafts @mayartsribboninc

I decided to use the gold doily as a backdrop to help bring out the jar of bouquet. I know I didn’t do anything fancy to it, but I just love how it added the perfect shine to the card. The flowers from Avery Elle Petals and Stems set are stamped in pigment inks and carefully fussy cut. They were popped up on top of a jar which was also fussy cut from a patterned paper. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn Our Friendship Grows stamp set. I finished the card by wrapping the jar twice with a pink burlap string and tying that into a little bow.

Next gold products are these sparkly sequins and confetti:@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps

@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff

When it comes to these fun sparkling sequins, I thought a shaker card is called for. Since I wanted to create the look of a collection of shoes displayed in a store window at the mall, I decided to have the shoes stamped in two rows using Encore Gold pigment ink. I created the shaker using some Simon Says Stamp Stitched Squares Dies, an acetate sheet and the stamped panel of shoes from The Tons Stamps.@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff

I filled in my shaker with SpiegelMom Scraps Tiny Gold Stars, Gold Rush and Gold Garland Confetti and sealed my shaker with the sentiment panel. The entire shaker was adhered to a sparkly DCWV Black Glitter Paper. I know this is such a simple shaker, but sometime simple is the best to go!

That is all for me today! Thanks for popping in and checking out these two cards! I hope you enjoyed them! And as always, if you like to see the full supplies list, click HERE.  I’ll be back here again next Tuesday to share even more cards using more SpiegelMom Scraps products!
