Tuesday’s Talent with Kelly

Hello again! I am back with my last post as the October guest designer and for today’s layout I am focusing on the gorgeous Sugar Maple sequins. I fell in love with these the moment that I saw them and really wanted to create a page showcasing these gorgeous sequins.

To begin, I stitched in messy circles on cardstock in gold thread. Once I decided where my photo and the large embellishment cluster would be placed, I the sequins around the stitching making sure to space out the various colors. To adhere the sequins I used Ranger Multi Matte Medium on the smaller sequins and glue dots on the leaves.

 

Glorious Days Vibez is a gorgeous shade of gold and was the perfect addition on the page. I sprinkled a bit on the background and the die cuts to add further depth to the page.

If you are interested I have linked my process video below. In the video I tell more about the process as well as the story behind the photo. Thanks again for joining me today and special thanks to Jody for having me as the October guest designer. Have a wonderful day!

Tuesday’s Talent with Kelly

Hello again! It’s Kelly and I have my third project to share with you this week. I did a layout similar to this last year and loved it so much I had to do it again this year. The photo is not great, but it is my son’s senior class schedule. In ten years it will be fun for him to look back on this and see the classes that he took his senior year.

On the background I used a few Shimmerz watercolors and Well Blue Me Down mist and the famous packaging technique. Once that dried, I used Salt of the Earth Paste-eez through a Tim Holtz stencil for some added texture.

For this layout I chose to work with the more masculine papers in Paige Evan’s Turn the Page collection. I cut the word Senior with my Silhouette software, using the font Blackout Sunrise. I just checked the shop and the sequins that I used for this project are already sold out!! However, the Magical Adventure and Lisa’s Starry Night packs are pretty close to the pack that I used if you are looking to replicate my project.

To adhere the sequins to the letter, I put double sided tape on the inside of the I and pushed the sequins down. Since this is a technique that I have not personally done before, I was not sure how well the sequins would stick. They stick amazingly well to the double sided tape which made it so easy to arrange the sequins.

Adding a few sequins around the page helps to bring a bit more bling to the clusters and helps to make the layout look more cohesive.

If you’d like to take a peek at my process, I’ve included a link below. Thanks so much for joining me today, and I hope this inspires you!

 

 

Tuesday’s Talent with Kelly

Hello friends! I hope that you are having a fantastic week. Today I am sharing a layout and process video in which my focus is on using Shimmerz Paste-eez Salt of the Earth, and Black Tie Event sequins. Unfortunately the Black Tie Event sequins have sold out, but I’m pretty sure that Moonshine Delight and Crushin’ on Purple will work as well if you’d like to replicate the sequins that I used for this project.

I used several Felicity Jane kits for the papers and embellishments for this layout. Once I settled on the color scheme, the layout came together fairly quickly.  Adhering a few sequins down the edge of my photo is one of my favorite go-to techniques when it comes to sequins. It doesn’t take a lot to make a big impact on your page.

If you have never tried modeling paste through stencils, this is the perfect one to purchase. The texture of white on white amazing, especially in person. For this layout I chose to use a geometric stencil because I felt like the graphic nature of the triangles worked well with the dots and lines on the patterned papers.

Adhering the tiny stars was easier than I thought, and I found that using Scotch Tacky Adhesive worked well. It dries clear which is a huge plus.  I love the combination of the silver stars and the holographic sequins. They are so versatile and can be used for so many different projects.

Thanks so much for joining me today, and I hope that you have a great week!

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.

You can watch my process video here on my You-Tube channel here.

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

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.

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.

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.
