Scrapbooking with Karla – Paper Layering Scraplift

Hello friends! Karla here today with another scrapbook page following along with our Scraplift theme – and this week it’s the amazing Kat Benjamin or KraftyKat as she’s also known! I love her clean style, and I love how she coordinates the products she’s using! She also makes awesome pocket pages <3

I decided to scraplift Kat’s page Hey Handsome – here’s a look at it:@katbenjamin @kraftykat9

I really liked the layers of paper she used and the striking black title, so even though I went with a totally different colour scheme I followed the basic layout. I really love scraplifting – I think it makes you try different ideas and styles that you might not otherwise, and you just might find something you love! I chose an older collection I had in my stash – Jubilee by My Mind’s Eye and the awesome NEW sequin mixes from the SpiegelMom Scraps Store: Star Spangled, Girly Glitter and Ferris Wheel!

I used a 1″ circle punch to cut out coordinating papers and placed them on in a similar way to Kat’s page. I even pop-dotted one to give it a little extra dimension. I pulled colours from my photo and paper when choosing the sequins and I grouped them around each circle.

I really liked the black title on Kat’s page, so I decided to use one of the acetate overlays from this collection, backed by a piece of patterned paper. I added a strip of the arrow paper to add some colour above the title and used a chipboard sentiment to add dimension. A few more sequins above and below the title follow Kat’s layout, and I added my journaling by first penciling in straight lines and writing with a Faber Castel pen.

Quick and Easy Project Life Page

Hey, everyone!  Kat popping in today to share a Project Life spread with you.  So…I am way, way, waaaaaay behind on my PL album this year and I need to catch up quickly.  Luckily, by picking out just a few core supplies, I am able to create a spread in a short amount of time and still have it embellished and pretty-looking.  Most importantly, I am getting these memories on the page before I forget them entirely J

For this spread I decided to stick with a PL mini core kit (I used Amy Tangerine’s Plus One kit), my favorite hearts & arrows wood veneers, an assortment of sequins and some label stickers.

Here is my spread:

@spiegelmomscraps @kraftykat09 @jodyspiegelhoff @AmyTangerine @studiocalico @americancrafts @dearlizzy, #sequins #amytangerine #americancrafts #plusone #goldrush #silverstardust #woodveneer

My favorite detail from the spread is the confetti pocket.  Confetti pockets are such a quick and easy way to add interest to a PL spread.  I mixed the gold rush sequins with the gold stardust confetti (they are sold out and being restocked soon, but you can find the silver assortment here) and I used my fuse tool to close up the pocket.

I also love the Dear Lizzy wood veneers and knew that the “Best Ever” one would be perfect to layer on top of a scenery photo from the week – just another easy way to add some quick interest.

The rest of the spread is fairly simple with a smattering of wood veneers, sequins and enamel shapes.  This page came together in about 30 minutes and most importantly, it’s done and added to my 2015 album!

Highlighting the Green Chevron Washi!

Hi, everyone!!  Kat here today to show off another one of my favorite products from the SMS store.  Last month, I shared the awesomeness of the gold doilies.  This month, I want to share how great the green chevron washi can be.  Since I always associate the color green with the month of March, I figured it was a good product to feature.

This page came together very quickly for me.  I just measured off the top 5 inches of my cardstock and covered it in the washi tape.  I alternated the direction of the chevrons, which ended up creating an optical illusion of sorts (seriously, stare at it for a while…it’s a bit trippy!)  That was a happy accident!  Once I was done with that, I added simple embellishments, a few paint drips and then I was done.  This layout came together in about 20 minutes!

Highlighting the Gold Doilies

Good afternoon, everyone!  Kat here today sharing my first layout on the SpiegelMom Scraps blog. 

This year, my family did a “late Christmas” in January because we wanted to celebrate when we were all able to be together.  Our nieces were super excited for an extra Christmas celebration.  They got all cute in their new Christmas jammies, watched a movie and then opened presents.  I got some very cute photos of the two of them and did not want to wait a whole year before scrapping them!

I am so in love with the gold doilies right now so I really wanted to come up with a unique way to incorporate them into the layout and sort of highlight their “awesomeness”.  I ended up using them to create a fun background:

@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff, #spiegelmomscraps #doilies #sequins

I pulled some of my other favorite items from the store –star sequins, heart shaped wooden veneers – to create this fun layout of my two favorite girls.

For this layout I used the following items from the store:

Gold doilies

Apple Green sequins

Real Red sequins

Holiday Stars sequin mix

Studio Calico hearts & arrows wood veneers
