Goooood morning!

Lately my projects have a theme..they’re all tiny and come together quickly. But most importantly, they allow me to really express my craftiness in the midst of crazy life. Definitely the #1 reason why I love mini albums so much.

I recently ordered “Night Moves” Coloringz from the shop.. a perfectly deep black¬†Shimmerz mist- and knew I wanted to use it in contrast with something girly.

I cut down a piece of white textured cardstock and chose some watercolors that would contrast with the black and match the gorgeous “rockin’ pink ombre” sequin mix. I brushed some color on and once that dried I splattered the black around.

I matted my picture with patterned paper and vellum – Ada is the little black dog pictured along with my friend Katie. She is so ridiculously spoiled.. we went up to the mountains when there were a few inches on the ground and the temp was in single digits. Ada was not happy about walking around in the cold snow, so she picked her front paw up and began to limp HA. Wes and I know her tricks but Katie felt bad for her.

I adhered sequins all over the page – some with glue, some with mini staples. And spilled a few for good measure because they’re so pretty ūüėČ

A few black and gold embellishments + stamping and journaling finish off this mini layout. Short on crafty time? Find some products you love and throw them together on a mini layout. You’ll love the results!

Fall Mini & LGSketchy Sketch with Rachel

Hope y’all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Time relaxing with family is such a gift, and I’m cherishing it! This post is picture heavy because I’m SO excited to share this fall mini album. Incorporated in my album is a full page using this week’s Let’s Get Sketchy¬†sketch.

Target always has has smaller binders that fit 6×8 page protectors really well – and depending on the brand you purchase, you may only need to punch a few more holes. #minialbum #autumn #scrapbooking #papercrafting #shimmerz #sequins #spiegelmomscraps #LGSketchy #sketch #scrapchallenge #wermemorykeepers I got those gold glitter alphas and wood veneer leaves at Target too.. swoon. It looks perfect against that wood grain specialty paper I’ve been hoarding forever.#minialbum #autumn #scrapbooking #papercrafting #shimmerz #sequins #spiegelmomscraps #LGSketchy #sketch #scrapchallenge #wermemorykeepers

#minialbum #autumn #scrapbooking #papercrafting #shimmerz #sequins #spiegelmomscraps #LGSketchy #sketch #scrapchallenge #wermemorykeepers I’ve included lots of Crate Paper products in this mini – from old and new lines. Behind the “Give Thanks” title is a little Shimmerz¬†Dazzlers¬†in Coral Me Crazy. I love the added texture.dsc_0177

#minialbum #autumn #scrapbooking #papercrafting #shimmerz #sequins #spiegelmomscraps #LGSketchy #sketch #scrapchallenge #wermemorykeepers One of my favorite details in this mini is that shaker pocket filled with exclusive sequins,¬†Falling Leaves.http://letsgetsketchy.blogspot.com/If you follow my layouts, you’ll notice that leaf looks familiar – I used lots of them here. They’re a beautiful mix of these¬†Shimmerz products (1, 2, 3)#minialbum #autumn #scrapbooking #papercrafting #shimmerz #sequins #spiegelmomscraps #LGSketchy #sketch #scrapchallenge #wermemorykeepers I made a filler card with a stencil and Mari-Gold Digger¬†texture paste and I love how it turned out. Aren’t those pictures I took of one of my besties fun!?#minialbum #autumn #scrapbooking #papercrafting #shimmerz #sequins #spiegelmomscraps #LGSketchy #sketch #scrapchallenge #wermemorykeepers It was so fun to work with a sketch created for a larger scale on a 6×8 layout! The title is Dear Lizzy and the scraps of paper are mostly from the¬†Gather¬†collection.¬†The sequins I used on this page are an exclusive mix, Mocha Mint Dream. And I finished off with a cloud feltie.#minialbum #autumn #scrapbooking #papercrafting #shimmerz #sequins #spiegelmomscraps #LGSketchy #sketch #scrapchallenge #wermemorykeepers

I loved documenting these fall months in a mini, almost like a December Daily. Thanks for stopping in – I hope it’s inspired you to create!

Fall Friday – Mini Album

Welcome, Fall!

Although it’s a freakish 85 degrees here in NC as I write this, I’m still gazing at the fall foliage from inside my air conditioned home and enjoying the beauty of it. Because many of the fall activities for this year have yet to come, I put together a short mini from 2015 – I just couldn’t wait!

#SpiegelMomScraps #minialbum #autumn #sequins #scrapbooking #papercrafting #memorykeeping @SpiegelMom_Scraps @wordsandpaperscrapsFor the front and back covers, I used two pieces of thick cardstock mod podged together, nothing too fancy.#SpiegelMomScraps #minialbum #autumn #sequins #scrapbooking #papercrafting #memorykeeping @SpiegelMom_Scraps @wordsandpaperscrapsThe title was made with some alphas from my stash (I love pairing white + gold).¬†¬†For this mini, I didn’t necessarily care that the pages were different sizes. I liked the eclectic feel. #SpiegelMomScraps #minialbum #autumn #sequins #scrapbooking #papercrafting #memorykeeping @SpiegelMom_Scraps @wordsandpaperscrapsI wanted the first thing you saw when you opened the mini to be a gorgeous shaker pocket page. I paired some exclusive Autumn Joy¬†sequins¬†with some cork die cuts from the shop. *Remember that time I told you I’ve been using these sequins with everything and they last FOREVER? Visit here for another project using this mix.¬†It’s perfect#SpiegelMomScraps #minialbum #autumn #sequins #scrapbooking #papercrafting #memorykeeping @SpiegelMom_Scraps @wordsandpaperscrapsI like to include little journaling cards in my mini albums – Can you see that one peeking out from the bottom?¬†#SpiegelMomScraps #minialbum #autumn #sequins #scrapbooking #papercrafting #memorykeeping @SpiegelMom_Scraps @wordsandpaperscrapsThese pictures of our sweet dogs are two of my very favorites. On projects I love to give the effect that clothespins are holding pictures in place.¬†#SpiegelMomScraps #minialbum #autumn #sequins #scrapbooking #papercrafting #memorykeeping @SpiegelMom_Scraps @wordsandpaperscrapsI love getting fancy Starbucks coffee in the Fall, and so I tucked one inside a glassine bag turned pocket envelope. I used a lot of products from the Basic Grey Barista line on this project.¬†#SpiegelMomScraps #minialbum #autumn #sequins #scrapbooking #papercrafting #memorykeeping @SpiegelMom_Scraps @wordsandpaperscrapsTags are the perfect addition for adding interest to mini albums!#SpiegelMomScraps #minialbum #autumn #sequins #scrapbooking #papercrafting #memorykeeping @SpiegelMom_Scraps @wordsandpaperscraps

Our 2nd anniversary is November 1st. I can’t wait for 100 years worth of fall-inspired anniversary pictures with my sweet hubby. Hope you enjoyed this mini!

Album/journal cover by Lea

Good ¬†Thursday¬†girls, today a little late but I hope you enjoy my¬†project : it’s the cover of an album / journal on which I am working. The cover is completely handmade made with¬†recovery cardboard ¬†and cotton fabric. Once I built the cover I painted, printed and embellished it with stencils and different Shimmerz ¬†colors. The result is very colorful and sparkling, thanks to the sequins that I put here and there to give light points. To complete the cover instead I used embellishments (doily, shipping tags, mini Clothspins, die cut) from the neutral color, so the cover did not appear too heavy. I have a lot of fun doing it.

Next album /  journal completed. See you soon and good creativity for all. xoxo Lea

Love memories mini album by Lea Biccelli

Hi all, Lea’s here.¬†For this new appointment I wanted to dedicate a mixed media project, a mini album completely handmade.

mini feb2 cover

I made the cover with the heavy recycled cardboard covered with cotton fabric. Before proceeding with the decoration I treated the background with the clear gel to isolate the tissue from the next steps and make it less absorbent.

mini feb2 scorcio

The super fun part was to work the Shimmerz Paint with a spatula, once dry I used the Shimmerz Paste through the stencil to give texture to the background.

I then added various embellishments: lace, twines, wood veneer, beads and micro beads, small sequins. Finally many splashes of color.

The inside pages, bound with bind it all, have very few embellishments; for the background, as for the cover, I used Shimmerz Paint with a spatula and some stamped.

Thanks for getting here in this long post, I hope I have inspired at least a little, and I assure you that getting your hands dirty with colors is very liberating.
