Scrapbooking with Karla – Scraplifting Shimelle!

Hi, Karla here today! This week we’re scraplifting Shimelle Laine! She is one of my favourite scrapbookers, who has had such an amazing influence in the world of scrapbooking. From Two Peas to Glitter Girl, she’s helped break down the ‘rules’ of scrapbooking and help us understand why things work and how to do them. Here’s a look at Shimelle’s layout that I chose to scraplift-

Layout by Shimelle Laine

I didn’t have the new Glitter Girl collection that Shimelle used, but I did have two other of her collections – True Stories and Starshine, so I decided to use the papers and stickers from those to create my layout along with the Star Spangled, Honor Guard and Hey Kiddo sequin mixes.

I love the paper layers, and for anyone who struggles to create layers to frame a photo this is a good way to get started on how to do it – by following someone else’s layout.

I love the blue star sequins in the Honor Guard sequin mix! Even though there are pinks in the photo and some on the papers, I chose to focus on the primary colours. I even used the round camera lenses as a place to add some sequin details for a more subtle, but fun effect.

I love adding different textures together, such as the Tim Holtz sentiment sticker, the star chipboard sticker, the banner cut paper sentiment and the clear sticker popped up on foam dots together with the different sizes and colours of sequins!  They all look cohesive, but your eye has lots of different things to look at.

Summer + Cork = Butterflies!

It’s JULY!!! EEKKK!!  Can you believe it?!  As our family gets ready to celebrate July 4th, I’ve finally taken a break from all the creating and packing of new products that will in my shop very soon!  Whew!!  Hint, hint… you don’t want to miss my Scrap Party coming up on July 10th.  This year I’m partying it up for my 5th year of business and couldn’t be more excited!  My Sparklers Design Team and I are teaming up with V’s Sweet Ideas, a couple very special, hand picked guests ~ YouTuber Teresa Huckle, aka craftinmommaML & a fabulous local card maker Ka Slagoski of Stamping Smiles Designs!  Please check them out and follow them on their sites!

Scrap Party plug, check!  Onto my layout today!  I want to talk about texting for a minute.  We do it, our kids do it, nearly everyone’s doing it!  And let me tell you, there are MEMORIES in these texts messages!  Yes!  Think about it. Has your child ever texted you from someone else’s cell phone or maybe they sent a sweet text grandma and grandpa!  These are some pretty fun everyday  moments that I want to document and scrapbook about!  These sweet text messages are wonderful reminders of our relationships, personalities and our everyday life.

I work most weekends and my husband is home with our girls.  Sometimes Sari and Hannah really miss me, especially during school when I only get to see them at night.  So, often times they ask to use their Dad’s phone and send me a sweet little text message.  It totally makes my day and makes them feel better at the same time.  To print them, I screen shot them and upload them to Walgreen’s right from the APP in my phone.  I usually wait until their Instagram prints go on sale before I print, but they’re saved, safe and sound 🙂

So, my challenge to you is to start documenting those sweet or funny text messages!  Here are the finishing touches and lots of layers banners on my layout.  I’ve added a bunch of little stickers from my stash from Amy Tangerine, Shimelle, Elle’s Studio, Crate Paper, Michael’s Craft Store and Pink Fresh Studio!

Those adorable cork butterflies are new in my shop also! They come 10 in  a package and are even self adhesive!  So perfect for summer!

Experiment | Adhering Sequins

@cliquekits @jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @amytangerine @stampinup @echoparkpaper, #creativeagenda #cliquekits #spiegelmomscraps @spiegelmomscrapshop #etsy #sequin #scrapbookadhesivesby3L #dodz #gluedots #glitter #myscrapsandmore

Happy Sunday everyone!  I’m up on the Clique Kits blog today sharing this layout, which I created to link up the My Scraps and More Sketch Challenge blog.  I created my layout based off of this fantastic sketch and used my January Clique Kit, Tailor Made (featuring Amy Tangerine’s Stitched Collection!) 

@

I love this sketch for a few reasons.  First of all, the title is right smack in the middle of the layout which I rarely do.  Second, it splits to photo collages in opposite corners of the layout.  This can be interpreted in so many ways:  lots of layering, big or small photos, etc.

Here are some close-ups of my layout.  You can easily see that I scattered a mixture of sequins from my Etsy Shop diagonally across my layout.  I used the flat silver sequins from this mixed metals pack HERE and the Dark Aqua sequins.  I conducted a little experiment this time. I usually go between using my Aileen’s Tacky Glue and Scrapbook Adhesives Dodz to stick my sequins onto my cards and layouts.  This time I used both to compare them side by side.  The flat silver sequins are adhered with tacky glue and the dark aqua sequins are adhered with my favorite Dodz (glue dots).  So we’ll see how this page holds up to our daughter paging through our 2014 family scrapbook!

Check out the glitter filled Amy Tangerine heart in the photo below!  I created this look by filling the inside of the foam heart with tacky glue, then carefully filling it in with a fabulous glitter from Stampin’Up!.  After it dried, I shook out the excess glitter over a scrap piece of paper and put it back into the container.  I think this particular glitter was discontinued awhile ago from Stampin’ Up!, but there are more beautiful glitters available now.  If you’re interested, please check out my friend EricaRose’s Stampin Up! Page HERE. She’s just fantastic!

December Daily Wrap Up 2013

Well my scrappy friends, the hustle and bustle of the holidays is almost done and our ‘normal’ routines will resume soon.  It’s always bittersweet for to me to return to work after a wonderful 13 days off!  I love routine and being organized, but staying home with our kids is wonderful.  I’ve been soaking them up like crazy these last few days!!! 

I’ve been trying to get this post done for the last 4 days too… So onto the last few days of my December Daily.  Here’s a close up shot of how the edges of my mini album look.  Lots of different elements peaking out from the behind the pages. 

Hannah's Pageant Dec 15, 2013 089

I’ve really fallen in love with all the gold accents in the paper crafting world this year.. Gold Doilies, Sequins, Alpha stickers… the list goes on!  I did some very simple layering on top of the 4×6″ Simple Stories card.   I cut a Gold Foil Doily in a third and adhered it with Aileen’s Tacky Glue, then cut some little banner shapes out.  I chose this Peace Love Joy 4×4″ Simple Stories card and adhered it to the 4×6″ card, along with the banner shapes and the Gold Foil Doily.  Pretty simple 🙂

Hannah's Pageant Dec 15, 2013 092

 This page is the backside of the 4×6″ card above.  The contrast of the black and white chalkboard design is a great mix with all the bright Christmas colors!  I just added a few SpiegelMom Scraps Sequins, Maggie Holmes gold glitter alphas and called it a day!

Hannah's Pageant Dec 15, 2013 094

 Next is a little more complicated page.  The base of the page is wool felt with I ran through my sewing machine around the edges with gold thread… my other new favorite 🙂  Next, I die cut WISH on my Cricut using my Close To My Heart Artbooking Cartridge.  I used a 6×6″ piece of paper from the Fancy Pants Merry Little Christmas pad and then  trimmed around it to create the large banner shape.  This is another creative way to use your Cricut!!  It looks like a specialty  die cut or something created with a Silhouette.  It’s adhered to the felt with Aileen’s Tacky Glue and then I added more layers and other elements around it.

Hannah's Pageant Dec 15, 2013 097

 A little closer…

Hannah's Pageant Dec 15, 2013 098

This page was created on the backside of the 21 page above.  I adhered the Santa paper to this side before running it through my little sewing machine.  The page below is a fun pocket page.  You can have the kids write down their wish lists, traditions or even what your Elf on the Shelf has been up to this month!

Hannah's Pageant Dec 15, 2013 099

Hannah's Pageant Dec 15, 2013 101

Next, is this adorable snowman page!  The page is green wool felt with the patterned paper adhered with Aileen’s Tacky Glue and stitched around the edges with gold thread.. yes there’s a trend here GOLD!

Hannah's Pageant Dec 15, 2013 103

Finally Christmas morning was upon us!!!!  This page is super simple.. just add some sequins and a gold glitter thicker.. Good. To. Go!

Hannah's Pageant Dec 15, 2013 106

This page is the backside to the Dec 25th card.  I thought it was the perfect way to end my December Daily and needed no embellishment! 

I wish you all a very blessed and Happy New Years!!!  I’ll be back very soon with Part 1 of a very special mini album reveal!! 

XOXO,

Jody
