You are a Star by Rachel Lowe:

Well today is my last share as a guest designer for Speigelmom Scraps and I have had such fun creating with the wonderful sequin mixes.

It is all about a boy today!

I have used Pink Paislee Paige Evans Turn the Page collection.

I have also used her hexagon cut file available at the Silhouette design store.

I also used a star cut file to create my white stars.

I have used the Happy Happy Winter sequin mix but did not include the burgundy sequins.

I made my star shaker first.

Cut one star whole (this is the back of your star.

Cut another five but this time cutting a smaller star in the centre.

Set one aside.

Glue the four stars on top of each other.

Then glue the four stars to the back whole star.

Now put your sequins in the centre, do not over fill or the sequins will not be able to move around the star.

I then cut a star by hand using acetate (you could use vellum) and glued to the top of my star.

Now with the last star you set aside glue on top of the acetate star.

Now you have a sequin shaker!

I used a striped paper from Turn the Page collection and backed the hexagon.

I had to add some machine sewing!

Then I added my sequin star, varying shaped white card stock stars and finished off with some more machine sewing on the stars.

I then added my title and balanced my layout with some embellishments.

So glad my nail polish matched my sequins lol!

Thank you for stopping by today and it has been fun sharing my layouts with you all and show casing the wonderful products in Speigelmom Scraps shop!

Hi friends! Karla here with an exciting start to November!! There are lots of things going on this month, and some amazing brand new sequins to share in the SpiegelMom Scraps shop!! You can see a peek of all the sequin in Jody’s post yesterday. Our theme this month is circles and sketches – so you’re going to see lots of ways to use both of those things! And, we have new FREE cutfiles so there is so much inspiration to get creating!! Today, I’m using two of the beautiful new sequin mixes – Happy Happy Winter and Birthdays and Balloons to create this fun, wintery layout. I’m following the sketch shown at the bottom of the page. I really love how it turned out with the square photos on top of the large circles. I used a circle cutter tool from my stash and the Simple Stories Life In Color collection. It’s not a winter themed collection, but I loved the bright colours and how they looked with my photos.

The snowflake diecuts are one of the new free SMS cutfiles this month. I used my Cricut Explore to size the whole sheet of snowflakes – they’re awesome!! and added them to my layout after coating them with Emerald Creek Winter’s Mistake embossing powder. It’s such a fun powder using a combination of glitter and embossing powder!

I used the same embossing powder on the title, but I diecut blue cardstock with another of this month’s cutfiles, and I added some of the lovely Hunter Green Burlap String from the SpiegelMom Scraps Shop.

Here’s a quick video showing you my process adding the embossing powder to the diecuts:

The cut apart sheet in the Simple Stories pack was just right for adding my journaling. I added some foam dots to pop up some of the coordinating sticker elements and some Glossy Accents to highlight certain areas of the paper like the printed paper clip below.
