Cards With Karla – Happy New Year Shaker!

@jodyspiegelhoff @smssseqins @shimmerz @cricut #smssequins #sequins #newyear #2018 #greetingcard #happynewyear #mixedmedia #shimmerzpaints #cricut #diecut #bling #shakercard #hello

Hi friends! Karla here today with a fun sparkly New Year card to kick off 2018! I recently picked up some fun Shimmerz products from the SMS Shop – Shimmerz Gold Glimmer Blingz and Hi Ho Blingz, which are liquid metallic paints and Puttin’ On The Glitz Paste-eez, a sparkly texture paste. I love using gold and silver together on New Years cards, and these were fun to work with! I also grabbed three different sequin mixes – In The New  Year,  Rollin Rustic and Blue Moon to use in the shaker portion and on the front and inside areas of my card.

It’s the last week of our ‘tools’ theme, so I thought I’d run you through the steps I used to create this card using some crafty tools I have. I started off by using a cutfile that the awesome Laura Rumble created, which I uploaded to Cricut Design Space. Then, I cut it out using the negative cut as the shaker portion and used a gold pen and the write tool to write my message for the inside of the card (shown below).

I used some plastic packaging, some Tattered Angels Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist and the gold and silver Blingz to smoosh the card background with the metallic watercolours. I also used the gold to paint over the Hello diecut for a little extra sparkle.

The glittery Paste-eez was neat to use with a Heidi Swapp star stencil to add a little more subtle texture and glitz to the right of the card front.

I grabbed the three sequin mixes I was using – In The New  Year,  Rollin Rustic and Blue Moon, and put a few from each package onto the area of the card that would be the shaker. After adding a piece of acetate behind the numbers and some double sided foam tape around the edges, I carefully pressed it on the card.

I love the look of the Shimmerz Gold Glimmer Blingz painted onto the hello diecut cut from black cardstock, and this pretty star from the ‘In The New Year’ mix looks great on the card front!

Here’s a look at the inside where I used the Cricut pen tool to write my sentiment using a gold pen. I outlined parts of the lettering with a black pen after to highlight the words and then added some more gorgeous sequins!

Scrapbooking with Karla – Scraplifting Missy Whidden

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @lawnfawn @americancrafts @canvascorpbrands @tatteredangels @simplestories #smssequins #sequins #scrapbooking #memorykeeping #simplestories #lawnfawn #christmas #canvascorpbrands #tatteredangels #glimmermist

Hi friends! Karla back today with a scraplift for you using the amazing Missy Whidden, our Guest Designer this month, as inspiration, along with three beautiful new sequin mixes – Cunning One, Birthdays & Balloons and Cotton Candy Land. I really loved the pinks, yellows and greens in her layout, and of course Missy rocks the watercolours, so I wanted to use those elements in my layout as well as layering paper behind my photo and using different stickers and fonts for a title. Here you can see Missy’s wonderful layout!

Layout By Missy Whidden

Here’s a look at my layout using some photos from a December when my daughter was 3 and we went to the local zoo for a Zoolights display. I pulled out a Simple Stories collection that has nontradition colours, and of course was excited to find this cute penguin journaling card and sticker to go with the penguin lights in my photo! I started off with a white sheet of cardstock and used my Tattered Angels mists in pink, yellow, green and iridescent gold to create a watercolour effect on the background by using a piece of plastic packaging to spritz the mist on before smooshing it onto the paper. Then, I created some splattered effects by removing the cover and tapping the nozzle onto the desired areas.

I used some of the clear sequins in the Cunning One sequin mix to accent the light strand sticker that I placed on the journaling card. They add just a bit of shine to the lights!

I had a lot of fun diecutting some watercoloured patterned paper with the Lawn Fawn String Of Lights die and sponging the edges with Distress Inks. I really loved the look of the gold Missy added onto her layout and I pulled that in with the gold string diecuts, the loooped gold thread and the Thickers letters.

I feel like titles are not my strong point, so I was really happy to mix and match my letter and word stickers along with some stamps and chipboard to create a fun title. The stamps from the Home For The Holidays collection from Wild Whisper worked beautifully!

Papercrafting With Karla – Gift Bag, Shaker Tag and Card Set

Hi friends! Karla here today with a sweet Christmas gift set using lots of fun tools (our theme this month!) and the sequin mixes Hustle Bustle, Shabby Chic Christmas and Eye of The Tiger. This purse was so fun to make with one sheet of 12×12 patterned cardstock following this video. Of course the best part is decorating it with all the fun goodies 😉 @jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @heartfeltcreations #smssequins #sequins #heartfeltcreations #christmas #crafting #giftset #cardmaking #gifttag #paperfolds #doily #diecut #fusetool #cropodile #scoreboard #wermemorykeepers

I had so much fun with so many tools in my stash! The We R Memory Keepers 123 punch board and the Score Board made creating the cute purse so easy. I used the Fuse Tool to made the little tag into a shaker pocket with an extra pocket page and the Crop-O-Dile was perfect to add the little eyelet (remember those!!) to the top of my tags.

After I created the shaker pockets and added my sequins and glitter I connected them with a brass eyelet and then threaded some SMS black burlap string through the opening. I had a couple extra tags so I decided to make another one at the same time!

The gold doily (on sale at the SMS shop now!!) was the perfect layering piece behind the pretty flower created using Heartfelt Creations dies and coordinating stamps. Some Stickles around the edges of the flower and some beads in the center give it a little extra bling.

I already had some of the pretty Heartfelt Creations papers out, so I whipped up a quick and easy Christmas card just by layering and matting and adding a pretty gold bow and the beautiful sequins. I love the pop of gold those Eye of The Tigers sequins give!

Creative Cards with Karla – Crazy Bird Christmas!

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @timholtz @prettypinkposh @lawnfawn #smssequins #sequins #christmas #christmascard #timholtz #crazybirds #stamping #watercolor #Prettypinkposh #diecut #lawnfawn #patternedpaper

Hi! It’s Karla back today for a Creative Card feature. This month our theme is winter and tools – fun!! Of course, with Christmas around the corner, I wanted to get a few more Christmas cards made, so I pulled out my Cuttlebug, dies and stamps and three of the new sequin mixes from the SpiegelMom Scraps Store – Birthdays and Balloons, Happy Happy Winter and Puppy Dog Tails! I really love how the bright colours that I chose from these mixes look so fun and festive.

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @timholtz @prettypinkposh @lawnfawn #smssequins #sequins #christmas #christmascard #timholtz #crazybirds #stamping #watercolor #Prettypinkposh #diecut #lawnfawn #patternedpaper

These crazy birds just make me laugh everytime I see them, and I’m sure that whoever I give this card to will share a smile. I used a Pretty Pink Posh die and my Cuttlebug to diecut this neat scalloped square before watercolouring my little guy and adding a cute little Santa hat.

Inside, I stamped a sentiment from the Tim Holtz Crazy Bird Sentiment stamp set and used some bright, fun sequins for a pop of colour.

Scrapbooking with Karla – First Day Layout!

@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @simplestories @officialcricut #smssequins #cutfile #diecut #cricut #school #backtoschool #kindergarten #scrapbooking

Hi friends! Karla back today to share a First Day of Kindergarten layout with you using two of the fabulous new SpiegelMom Scraps sequin mixes –  I Solemnly Swear and Blue Moon! The woodgrain sequins in the Blue Moon mix are so amazing!! I’m using one of the new FREE SMS cutfiles, which was perfect for this layout combined with the Simple Stories school papers. It’s so hard to believe my baby is already in school, but she loves it so much that I can’t really be sad…

@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @simplestories @officialcricut #smssequins #cutfile #diecut #cricut #school #backtoschool #kindergarten #scrapbooking

You can see the detail of those gorgeous woodgrain sequins and how lovely they look combined with the amazing colours in the I Solemnly Swear mix! I used this week’s circle sketch since November is all about circles here on the blog (see below), and I drew on some stitching lines with a fine black marker by tracing a large round circle die. The smaller diecut circles using a Kaisercraft Nesting Circle Die set (on sale in the SMS shop!!) continue the stitched theme.

@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @simplestories @officialcricut #smssequins #cutfile #diecut #cricut #school #backtoschool #kindergarten #scrapbooking

I love the colours in this Simple Stories school collection, which matched the sequins so well! Those cork letters are just great!

Scrapbooking with Karla – Combining a Sketch and Scraplift!

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @bugaboostamps @prettycutestamps @rachellowe #smssequins #sequins #scrapbooking #scrapbooklayout #baby #sisters #papercrafting #prettycutestamps #bugaboostamps #rachellowe #scraplift #sketch

Hi! It’s Karla back today with a sweet baby layout, using this week’s fun circle sketch (shown below) and using inspiration from the amazing Rachel Lowe, this month’s Guest Designer along with the beautiful new sequin mixes Birthdays & Balloons, Unicorns & Rainbows, and Dream Land! ! Usually when I scraplift I follow the other layout quite closely, but this month I thought I’d use elements from Rachel’s layout and incorporate it into the sketch. I really love the fun pinks and purples in her layout (directly below) as well as the adorable unicorn, rainbow, cupcake, flower and cloud images! I also used the stitching as inspiration – I’ve been really loving how stitching on a layout looks. Here’s a look at Rachel’s beautiful layout:

Layout by Rachel Lowe

I started off by taking a pretty floral background paper and layering it with a piece of white cardstock. Then, I cut out my circles to coordinate with the sketch, using pieces of patterned paper as well as a couple photos from a day shortly after my third daughter was born and was home from the hospital. Both her sisters were so happy to hang out with her, and it’s so awesome to look back on these sweet photos now, almost 6 years later!

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @bugaboostamps @prettycutestamps @rachellowe #smssequins #sequins #scrapbooking #scrapbooklayout #baby #sisters #papercrafting #prettycutestamps #bugaboostamps #rachellowe #scraplift #sketch

I stitched through the circles with my sewing machine and then layered on my stamped images. I used a sweet little unicorn digi stamp from Bugaboo Stamps, coloured wth Jane Davenport Magic Wand coloured pencils (how cool is that name?!!) and sat her on a Pretty Cute Stamps rainbow stamp watercoloured with ArtQuest watercolours and embossed (clouds) with Emerald Creek Soft Fallen Snow embossing powder. I love how glittery and puffy this embossing powder is, while still letting the base colour show through. I couldn’t resist adding a pretty blue flower from the Unicorns & Rainbows sequin mix in the adorable unicorn’s mane!

I added some chipboard stickers, regular stickers and a sticker title from several different sheets in my stash. I was really excited to find this cupcake sticker!

Next, I added some felt clouds cut with a Your Next Stamp stitched cloud die. I find that as long as I layer the felt along with a piece of cardstock it cuts beautifully! And, the best for last…. I used three of the amazing new release sequin mixes!!! Birthdays & Balloons, of course Unicorns & Rainbows, and Dream Land!

Scrapbooking with Karla – Hot Chocolate Weather Layout!

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @echoparkpaper #smssequins #sequins #scrapbooking #scrapbooklayout #echoparkpaper #hellowinter #sketch #12x12 #hotchocolateweather #cricutexplore #diecut #winter #papercrafting

Hello! It’s Karla here today with a fun, snowy layout using the new free cutfiles and two beautiful new sequin mixes – Roadtrips & Sunshine and Dreamland! I have always loved combining blues and pinks for winter and even holiday colour schemes, and since the hat my daughter was wearing was pink, I thought what better reason to add some pink snowflakes and sequins to my layout! Last week I used the sketch (shown below) very closely, but this week I decided to use it more as a starting point for inspiration. I grabbed some Kaisercraft circle diecuts (on sale!!) to cut circular frames and layered my photo on top. I love matting my photo with several layers of coordinating papers, but I do cheat a little and only use an L shape of the patterned paper instead of a whole rectangle to be thrifty 😉

I  always love the stickers that come with the collections, but I never seem to use them enough! This skating polar bear in the Echo Park Hello Winter collection was just too cute to pass up, and I popped him up on foam dots beside the Let It Snow sticker. I sponged pink Distress Oxide ink on the white snowflake diecuts and then embossed them with Emerald Creek Soft Fallen Snow embossing powder, which gives a lovely puffy effect while still showing the pink underneath.

I diecut the hot chocolate title once with the grey and white polkadot paper and then just the cup with another patterned paper from this collection, using my Cricut Explore. I love how the sequins in these two collections could be used for so many occasions, but the colours worked so perfectly with this snowy layout!

Scrapbooking with Karla – Baby It’s Not Too Cold Outside!

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.

Hi! Karla here today with a cute and fun Halloween layout using the Morning Glow, Lisa’s Starry Nights (I’m seriously addicted to these ;0 ) and Peachy Keen. I started off by using a sketch from the October Sketchy Challenge at the Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine blog and grabbed a Carta Bella ‘Haunted’ paper pack and some cute pics of my two littles a few years ago.

I splattered some pretty mists from the Tattered Angels Man Cave Calendar Kit, which includes 4 different mists in a pack. I love the bright lime green! I picked out sequins from each mix that would coordinate with the papers and photos and used Glossy Accents to adhere them.

Scraplifting Kelly Barron with Karla

Hello! It’s Karla here today with a cute baby page, and I’m scraplifting the most awesome Kelly Barron! She’s been our Guest Designer here all month long, and I just love her style!! Here’s the page she designed and you can see my scraplifted layout below. All the info on her pretty page can be found on her blog post HERE.

Scrapbook Layout by Kelly Barron

I’m really trying to get more of Erica’s baby pics into her album, so I grabbed these cute (well I understand if not everyone finds them cute 😉 ) pics of her with food on her head. Yup, you know it’s true love when you can watch hours of your baby doing the same thing over and over and never get tired of it, or you see her with food on her head and, well, you just have to take a photo – or three, lol! Erica, who is 5 now, even helped me do the stitching across the corners with the sewing machine. I grabbed some of the new Lisa’s Starry Night and Morning Glow sequin mixes and the Gold Burlap String to coordinate with my page.

The older Echo Park Made From Scratch collection was just right for this page, and you can see how wonderfully the textured vintage Architextures potholder sticker from 7gyspies fits in with it!

I loved the way Kelly used some smaller stickers as part of her title and found some in my stash that would work for me too. I added another of the Architextures mason jar stickers alongside some stickers from the EP collection.

I coloured the sweet little scarecrow digi images from Bugaboo Stamps and added some glittery Stickles before popping them up with foam dots on this pretty Echo Park paper – A Perfect Autumn. It’s one of my fav fall collections this year!

I love the way this little guy is peeking out of the circle! The Thanksgiving sentiment from a Pretty Cute stamps set was perfect for the banner tag.

On the back of the boxes I added a little name tag diecut from a Stitched Tag Die from Your Next Stamp and stamped with a pretty scroll stamp from the Pink & Main Thankful set.

Creative Cards with Karla – Autumn Blessings!

Hi friends! Karla here with a lovely Fall card ready to give out for Thanksgiving! Here in Canada it falls on this Monday coming. Seriously, I don’t know how all my US friends can wait till November 😉 We are having friends and family over on Sunday for a big turkey dinner and I definitely wanted to get some cards ready to give out. Fall is my favourite time of year, and I am really loving the Echo Park ‘A Perfect Autumn’ papers. I grabbed some of the new Peachy Keeny and Morning Glow sequin mixes to add shiny sequiny goodness! Those tiny peach flowers are so adorable!!

I combined the pretty pumpkin digi stamps from Craftin’ Desert Divas, printed on kraft cardstock, with a sentiment stamp from Pretty Cute Stamps and some pretty scrolls from Pink & Main stamped with Distress Oxide Ink. A Spellbinders diecut created a pretty panel for my focal image.

Cards with Karla – Mixed Media Christmas Card!

Hi Friends! Karla back today with a mixed media Christmas card using a Tim Holtz stamp and stencil set along with some embossing techniques and three gorgeous sequin mixes – Aquarius, Painted Gardens and Lisa’s Starry Night!

I started off taking a piece of Bristol cardstock and smooshing my Versamark Ink through the stencil that came with the awesome Tim Holtz stamp and stencil set. I used some clear iridescent embossing powder to add a clear resist on the background and then sponged on my Distress Oxide Inks from dark to light. I dripped a few water droplets on the water reactive ink to add some cool splotches! I layered on a chipboard label covered with Emerald Creek Northern Lights embossing powder and tied it to the stencilled background before layering over some pretty Lawn Fawn Knit Picky patterned paper.

The deer were stamped with Versamark and then embossed with Emerald Creek Charred Gold embossing powder. I love the cool gold and black melted effect this powder gives!

Here’s a look at the inside – I love the font on the stamps and how just adding a few sequins inside really makes it special.

Scrapbooking with Karla – Scraplifting Jenn Gagne!

Happy Thursday!! Karla back today with a scrappy springtime layout. This week we are scraplifting our awesome Guest Designer Jenn Gagne. Be sure to check out Tuesday’s blog post where she shared an amazing traveler’s notebook project! I’ve decided to use her beautiful Easter layout as inspiration for my scrapbook project today. I just loved the pretty colours and those gorgeous doilies, and I knew this would be a perfect layout to add the On Pointe, Aquarius, Morning Glow and Painted Gardens Sequin Mixes! Here’s a look at Jenn’s layout:

Layout by Jenn Gagne

 

I picked up a lovely PhotoPlay collection over the weekend and I couldn’t wait to use the springtime papers included. I’m really impressed with the PhotoPlay papers I’m seeing! I started off by adding Distress Oxide Inks to my splat mat and spritzing with Tattered Angels Iridescent Gold Mist. I put the white doilies directly onto the inky mist and pulled them through it to add some shimmery watercolour. I used 3 different colours for the doilies and then dried them with a heat gun.

I used the same inky mists to add some watercolours and splats directly to my white cardstock background before laying down the doilies and then adding my photo matted with the pretty PhotoPlay papers.

I stamped some butterflies, words and scrolls on the background with Distress Oxide Inks and then added some flowers, gems and more butterflies popped up with foam dots to give the layout some more dimension. Then, of course, the fun part – adding the sequins!! This just makes the layout come alive!

But First, Coffee…. Painted Canvas With Karla

Hi friends!! Karla here today with a pretty painted canvas featuring the beautiful SpiegelMom Scraps Aquarius sequin mix. Recently, I went to Michaels with my girls and they were doing a drop in painting class where you purchased a canvas and they provided the paints. You could paint whatever you liked, so I decided to paint my favourite….Coffee!! I found a picture I liked on Pinterest and just hand sketched it onto my canvas, and then added some paint. It was fun, I didn’t overthink it, and I love how it turned out!

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @michaels #makeitwithmichaels #sequins #smssequins #mixedmedia #coffee #canvas #painting #butfirstcoffee

I love the oranges and blues in these sequins! I used Glossy Accents to adhere my sequins to the canvas, and the Silhouette PIck Me Up Tool made it quick and easy to add them. This sign makes me smile every time I look at it!

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @michaels #makeitwithmichaels #sequins #smssequins #mixedmedia #coffee #canvas #painting #butfirstcoffee

Here’s a look at the gorgeous colours and sequins in the Aquarius sequin mix! I love how it just adds the details to the canvas that makes it pop!

Here’s a look at what my girlies painted – and how the canvas looked before adding the fantastic Aquarius sequin mix! Amie painted a sunset, and Erica painted popsicles with ears – because who says popsicles can’t have ears??
