Forever

Hey there!  It’s Laura Whitaker back with you today, sharing my final page and process video as a guest designer here at SpiegelMom Scraps!

Once again I am working with Amy Tangerine patterned papers, Oh how I wanted to play with those pink sequins and these papers let me make them pop! In fact, the cut apart sheet had a fun Polaroid frame printed onto part of it and it inspired me to trim it out and create a fun sequin pocket to balance out my offset photo.

 

I began my page by adding texture paste, though a mask, to my background.

 

I did not use any dimension in the sequin pocket at all, and relied on mostly stitching to hold it together.  I love the way it looks! And how pretty are those tiny flower sequins!?

 

Do you remember back on the first of the month, the SpiegelMom Scraps team was hopping with Creative Embellishments?  Well, I still had this gorgeous piece of chipboard left from the products that I was given and I was dying to use it.  It inspired the theme for this page!  I embossed it with this really pretty, but old embossing powder and I love the way it turned out! I trimmed the piece down a bit to better suit my layout, which is a plus because that means I still have a bit left!

 

I cut a pretty mint tag to fit inside one of the SpiegelMom Scraps tiny glassine bags that I got. I also got this Amy Tangerine frame from the SpiegelMom Scraps shop, which I backed with a bit of paper to help the laser cut element pop out a bit more.

 

 

I used some SpiegelMom Scraps cork embellishments to anchor my trio of embellishment clusters I finished off my page with some light blue mist splatters, journalling and a sprinkling of sequins around my layout.

Lucky

Hey there!  It’s Laura Whitaker with you and I am super excited to be guesting here this month! Today I am sharing a layout that features a photo of my youngest son  and documents how he was born on St. Patrick’s day.  But I wanted to do it without doing an actual birthday page.

 

So I created a shamrock background cut file and pulled in some patterned papers with softer rainbow colours as well as some SpiegelMom Scraps Pandora’s Ombre sequins, Green Acres sequins, What’s Up Buttercup sequins which coordinate perfectly with my paper choices.

 

As a first step, I added some green distress ink through a wood grain stencil and some white texture paste through the same stencil to add a bit of interest to my base paper, prior to layering on the cut file.

 

Parts of the cut file were backed with patterned papers and some were backed with clear plastic so that I could insert sequins behind them.  On the layout I created for the March SpiegelMom Scraps blog hop, I shared how to make sequin shaker elements a design feature on a background.  For this page I wanted to do something similar but different, this page does not need dimensional adhesive to achieve the look.  You can see how to recreate this look by watching my process video, on my You-Tube channel.

 

I tucked this little wood veneer frame behind my photo making it another layer.  As an after thought I stitched words into it and I am so glad I did I love the look!  The frame is from the SpiegelMom Scraps shop.

 

I have had this large foam Thicker word in my stash for quite some time now, I am so glad that I was finally able to use it as it is perfect for this page!

I used some of the SpiegelMom Scraps “I Cork U” Hearts to create a shamrock that I layered over my title.  I love the way it looks and that I was able to use my goodies in a variety of ways!

 

I also used large cork hearts to create a larger shamrock, onto which I have layered a flair.

 

My third embellishment cluster also uses cork (I like the repetition) but this time in the form of a cloud shape. The cloud is from the SpiegelMom Scraps shop as well and is called “Corky Cumulus”.  A die cut sun, a fun flair and some more sequins round out the cluster nicely.  As a last step I added in some black rub ons (super old from my stash) I think they balance the black title out nicely.

As I mentioned, I have a process video for this layout,  you can watch it on my You-Tube channel here.

Supply List:  SpiegelMom Scraps  I cork U hearts, corky cumulus, white doily, glassine bag; Pandora’s Ombre sequins, Green Acres sequins, What’s Up Buttercup sequins; Amy Tangerine wood frame from the SpiegelMom Scraps shop; Accent Scrapbooking flair; Amy Tangerine patterned paper;  American Crafts vellum and cardstock;  Amy Tangerine “today” word sticker; Imaginisce rub-ons; Sharpie[; Ranger Texture Paste; Tim Holtz mask: Tim Holtz distress ink (peeled paint); Tim Holtz stencil;  Tattered Angels mist (splash); Smooch Spritz mist (yellow); Mr. Huey’s mist (taxi); misc. ticket.

Guest Designer Alex Hunter is in the House!!

Hello everyone!  Jody here to introduce a special guest ~ Alex Hunter!  She joined us for the Triple Hop over Labor Day weekend and we just couldn’t get enough of her loveliness!!   She’s back today to share this gorgeous layout!! Thanks so much for joining us again Alex!!

Hello everyone! I am so excited to be guest designing for SpiegelMom Scraps! Today, I will be sharing a fun and colorful scrapbook page using a few different packs of sequins

@spiegelmomscraps @alexhunterdesigns @jodyspiegehoff, #alexhunter #alexhunterdesigns #spiegelmomscraps #jodyspiegelhoff #scrapbooklayout #scrapbook #pink #sequins #diy #papercraft #scrapbooking

For this scrapbook page, I wanted to base it around the shapes of the sequins so they would blend in effortlessly.

With some of the sequins, I tucked them under some of the circles and some, I left by themselves to draw some attention to them. I love the colors of the sequins and how well they worked with the scrapbook paper I used!adorbs3

adorbs4

The yellow sequins really paired well with the floral paper and I think they look amazing on this page. Of course the light pink sequins paired well with the stripped pink paper. I love the pink sequins the most because they can probably be used with any scrapbook paper or scrapbooking supplies and still look amazing! adorbs5

I also decided to add some of the tiny silver stars around the page for a little bit of interest. I really love how they look with everything else because of how subtle they are but they also catch your eye in person. adorbs6

That is all for this scrapbook page! I had an amazing time guest designing and I hope you all have an amazing day!

Play: Process Video with Khristina

Hi Everybody! I am SO very excited to be back this week at SpiegelMom Scraps with my second Guest Designer project for the month of July. I am having a blast working with these amazingly fun products and I hope that I have inspired you to give them a try too!

Today, I am going to share a layout and process video using a few different collections and embellishments as well as a cut file that I created to make “fake” shaker pockets so much easier and faster!! What’s even better is I have included my basic title cut file below so that you can try it out too! You can find the process video by clicking here.

image_22dca126-381e-4d1b-b951-9f2e84dc8ab1_large image_8732f8f2-cbb7-436b-be57-5e07f83850a2_large

One of my favorite uses for all of these beautiful sequins is to create shaker pockets combined with cut files. The two elements naturally work well together and create a fun and unique detail on your page. The problem is that cut files and shaker pockets and can be messy and a lot of work. So….today I am showing you a way to make it a little easier and faster to get the same look.

Without further ado, here is my completed project and some close-ups as well as some helpful hints. Make sure to check out the process video as well as it gives more of a step-by-step guide to what I did to create this look.

Khristina Guest Designer Project

By creating two layers with my cut file, I was able to cut the outline of the letters on regular white cardstock and then the filled version of the letters with sticker paper (cut thru my Silhouette upside down just like in the video—yellow side upJ ) This allowed the sticky side to be facing upward and easily adhered those sequins and details. I added a piece of clear transparency between the sticker paper layer and the cardstock outline layer and voila….the look of a shaker pocket with simple steps and sequins that won’t move around and pool up at the bottom of the letters!!

From the SpiegelMom Scraps Store, I worked with two different sequin packages: Amy’s Sprinkles and Hot Right Now. I also used the Normandy 4 inch white doilies which I colored on the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink in Mermaid Lagoon. The last component that I incorporated from SpiegelMom Scraps was the super fun Felt-Fetti Hearts.

Make sure to click below to try out the PLAY title cut file. Make sure to share your project with me if you use the cut file to create one. Also, make sure to check out the process video that goes with this layout by clicking here.  I will be back next week with another fun project!  Happy Crafting!!

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 with Sarah McClellan!

Hello SpiegelMom Scraps fans!  It’s Sarah on the blog again, today, bringing you my second guest designer project.  It is a two page, Project Life, layout of our Halloween festivities.  I usually do one, two page, Project Life layout per week, but when there are special events or holidays, I will do an extra two pages for it!  @spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @sarahmcclellan @cratepaperinc @AmericanCrafts, #spiegelmomscraps #scrapbook #DIY #ProjectLife #cratepaperinc #americancrafts #halloween #afterdark #sequins #gold #doily #shakerpocket #thickers #stickers #corkstars #midnightfeltstars @spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @sarahmcclellan @cratepaperinc @AmericanCrafts, #spiegelmomscraps #scrapbook #DIY #ProjectLife #cratepaperinc #americancrafts #halloween #afterdark #sequins #gold #doily #shakerpocket #thickers #stickers #corkstars #midnightfeltstars

I used papers, stickers, and a 12×12 cut-apart sheet from the Crate Paper After Dark collection. The After Dark collection included a Spooky Glitter Thicker pack that has shapes and phrases that I just had to use!  I was lucky enough to get a sewing machine from my mother-in-law this week, so I’ve used it on a lot of the cards.  I think adding stitched elements to your layouts adds amazing texture!  @spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @sarahmcclellan @cratepaperinc @AmericanCrafts, #spiegelmomscraps #scrapbook #DIY #ProjectLife #cratepaperinc #americancrafts #halloween #afterdark #sequins #gold #doily #shakerpocket #thickers #stickers #corkstars #midnightfeltstars

Here we have my title card.  I layered one of the 4″ Gold Foil Doilies under a tag and layered on Yellow Felt-Fetti Hearts,Midnight Felt Stars, and Studio Calico Wood Veneer Stars.

 I created a shaker pocket using half a packet of the Trick or Treat Sequin Mix!  I used my Fuse tool to seal it shut!@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @sarahmcclellan @cratepaperinc @AmericanCrafts, #spiegelmomscraps #scrapbook #DIY #ProjectLife #cratepaperinc #americancrafts #halloween #afterdark #sequins #gold #doily #shakerpocket #thickers #stickers #corkstars #midnightfeltstars #DIY

I absolutely love the Super Stars Cork embellies!  They are the perfect size for Project Life, just like most of the goodies in the shop!  Here I layered one under a word sticker!  I also love to do this with larger enamel dots!@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @sarahmcclellan @cratepaperinc @AmericanCrafts, #spiegelmomscraps #scrapbook #DIY #ProjectLife #cratepaperinc #americancrafts #halloween #afterdark #sequins #gold #doily #shakerpocket #thickers #stickers #corkstars #midnightfeltstars #DIY

Here you can see a close up of the machine stitched boarder.  I used another one of the 4″ Gold Foil Doilies and added a label sticker from Crate Paper After Dark.  I piled on the Studio Calico Wood Veneer and Super Star Cork stars.  I also used a bit of Heidi Swapp Color Shine in gold.   @spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @sarahmcclellan @cratepaperinc @AmericanCrafts, #spiegelmomscraps #scrapbook #DIY #ProjectLife #cratepaperinc #americancrafts #halloween #afterdark #sequins #gold #doily #shakerpocket #thickers #stickers #corkstars #midnightfeltstars #DIY

I layered on the felt, cork, and wood hearts and stars on this card!  To add some texture, I looped several strands of gold thread and stapled them in place! 

Well, that’s all from me today!  I hope that I can inspire you to get those memories scrapped.  However you document your memories, Jody will have just the right elements in her shop to help you make your projects shine!  I can’t wait to create another project to share with you next week!

Tuesday’s Talent with Amy Lee

@spiegelmomscraps @amylee @thecraftbunny @thetonstamps, #spiegelmomscraps #thetonstamps #stamp #ink #cardmkaing #goldsequins #goldrush #sequins #celebrateinstyleHi everyone! Hope you’re having a wonderful day! Today my card is showcasing gold sequins and silver confetti from SpiegelMom Scraps.

This design came to me when I was planning some wall arts at home. I was aspiring my ideal gallery wall and turned them into a card. My main colors are black, white and gold. I also incorporated some marble patterns to enhance the fashionista feel. I ended up LOVING this crisp and clean design.

First, I added some gold color and splatters onto the white background using Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Gold.@spiegelmomscraps @amylee @thecraftbunny @thetonstamps, #spiegelmomscraps #thetonstamps #stamp #ink #cardmkaing #goldsequins #goldrush #sequins #celebrateinstyle

Then, I created the mini arts one by one. I used my Spellbinders nesting oval dies to create an oval frame for the Eiffel Tower art (print out). I then stamped the sentiment onto my marble piece (also print out). The stamp set I used was The Shoe Wardrobe from The Ton.@spiegelmomscraps @amylee @thecraftbunny @thetonstamps, #spiegelmomscraps #thetonstamps #stamp #ink #cardmkaing #goldsequins #goldrush #sequins #celebrateinstyle

I cut out 2 rectangular frames using my craft knife. The small one was adhered onto a black background, then embellished with a white enamel dot. For the large one, I made it into a mini shaker using SpiegelMom Scrap’s Gold Rush Sequins and Mirror Mirror on the Wall Sequins. The images in the frame were stamped using the same stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and Delicata Gold ink. I absolutely love the mini shaker art!

Finally, I assembled the card together with glossy accents and fun foam. That finishes the card for today! Below are some other variations. If you’d like to see the process, refer to the video above. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!@spiegelmomscraps @amylee @thecraftbunny @thetonstamps, #spiegelmomscraps #thetonstamps #stamp #ink #cardmkaing #goldsequins #goldrush #sequins #celebrateinstyle@spiegelmomscraps @amylee @thecraftbunny @thetonstamps, #spiegelmomscraps #thetonstamps #stamp #ink #cardmkaing #goldsequins #goldrush #sequins #celebrateinstyle
