Triple Hop-Day 2

@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @missywhidden, #spiegelmomscraps #scrapbooking #diy #papercraft

Happy Saturday and welcome back to our Triple Hop weekend!!  Today we have more of the Sparklers DT girls AND three awesome guests ready to inspire you.  Welcome Missy Whidden, Alex Hunter and Karla Yungwirth!! Thank you so much for joining us and sharing your creativity with the SMS fans!

Today is all about SEQUINS and all the creative things you can do with them in your paper crafting.  There is so much more to sequins than just shaker cards and today we want to knock your sparkly socks off, so let’s get started! Here’s today’s sparkly line-up:

It’s Jody here on the SMS blog and I’m totally thrilled!   Today, I’m kicking off Sequin Saturday with this fun layout. I started off by creating my background with Shimmerz Dazzlerz Pucker Up Pink and watering it down with a a few sprays of H2O. I smooshed it around on a plastic Ziplock baggie. I put my hand inside the Ziplock and used my fingers to smoosh & kind of stamp my color onto my American Crafts white cardstock. 

Next, I added Pink Paislee branding stripes along the middle to ground everything. Then I added more layers from there, beginning with some black cardstock from my scraps bin. I knew I wanted to pull in black because I already had my title planned out. I added a few messy layers behind my 4×4″ black & white photo and then mounted it all onto the black cardstock, backed with craft foam for some dimension. 

In my layout I used my Summer Sunset sequins (which you can pre-order now) to accent the direction & angle at which my girls are “dabbing.” Using sequins to accent movement in a layout really helps your eye move naturally across your layout. Give it a try! Pull out action photos such as a sporting event, children dancing, running, etc. Use the sequins as an extentsion of the energy flowing from your photo or photos. 


Another fun thing I did on this layout is add some stamping by pulling stamps from my stash. The “Carefree” stamp is a mystery to me BUT the “#together” stamp is from an American Craft super cute roller date stamp set. 

The black die cut heart is from the free SpiegelMom Scraps cut file “Mermaid Hair Don’t Care” found here. 


Finally, here’s a close up of the smooshed Pucker Up Pink & water with the Summer Sunset sequins.

For my layout today, I wanted to steer away from plain white American Crafts cardstock or a patterned paper.  I really wanted to use the brand spankin’ new Paige Evans Take Me Away collection with Pink Paislee so I decided to compliment it with starting with lavender American Crafts cardstock from my stash. 
@pinkpaislee @paigeevans @americancrafts @amytangerine @shimmerzpaintz @spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegehoff, #spiegelmomscraps #shimmerzpaints #sequins #felt #diecuts #stitching #handstitching #paigeevans #takemeaway #pinkpasileeI added some gorgeous Shimmerz Dazzlerz in Licorice using an older Amy Tangerine stencil and just love the contrast!!  I added a thin layer so it would dry faster.  Then I had the idea to use my Kaisercraft metal dies as a stitching template.  I positioned my metal heart die around my layout in three spots and used my paper poker to poke the holes for my hand stitching.  It really didn’t take that long with stitch the hearts as they weren’t very big and I only used white embroidery thread.  I added the two shades of grey Heart Felties in a few areas around my layout, especially nearby and touching the stitched hearts.  I love to have similar embellishments touch and overlap.  I feel it’s very interesting in a layout.


Another one my favorite things to do so that I don’t waste any Shimmerz products is use the stencil as a stamp after I’ve used it as a stencil.  Hang in there and follow what I’m sayin’!!  After I used my Amy Tangerine triangle stencil to create the black triangles shown above, there is still some Dazzlerz leftover on my stencil, right?  So, instead of just wiping it off, I turned the stencil over and stamp that leftover Dazzlerz down right onto the bottom right corner of my layout.  It leaves a pretty cool effect!!

I’m so grateful you stopped by today!!  I hope you’ve enjoyed my layout, featuring some fabulous Heart Felties!!  Be sure to leave a comment on all the blogs today and throughout the weekend! There’s another chance everyday this weekend to win another $10 shop credit!!  

Now, you’re on to the amazing Missy Whidden!!  Enjoy her beautiful work my friends!
