Hi there, Laura here today. I recently got some new toys – namely some tiny LED stickers and copper tape. During my first session playing with them, I knew I wanted to try and light up some sequins…
I cut a few flowers on my Silhouette Cameo and backed them with vellum. I backed the negative of the flower with patterned paper. I lay down my copper tape and LED stickers over the patterned paper. When I offset the flowers slightly I managed to cover the majority of the copper tape and keep the nice aesthetic.
I went for a multi-font title. The pink and yellow would be too much for the whole sentence and I wanted my photo and the lights to remain the focus of the layout.
I placed my battery behind the P of pick and when pressed all three of the flowers light up…
I’ve used Moonshine Delight and Holiday Traditions for my sparkle. I specifically picked Moonshine as it picked up the light beneath and magnified it.
Here is the video…
Thanks for stopping by!
Hi Chaps! Laura here, and today I am working with the third Let’s Get Sketchy sketch from November…
I love the versatility of sketches and I’ve adapted this one to make an 8.5×11 layout.
My favourite part of this sketch is the sprinkling of embellishments diagonally across the page.
You can watch the process video, in which you see me trying to decide whether to splatter or not, here.
I have used; doily, tag, glassine bag, cork stars, felt-fetti hearts, Peachy Sherbet sequins, Lilac Twinkle sequins, Moonshine Delight sequins and Glass Slippers sequins all from SpiegelMom Scraps. I’ve also thrown in a couple of stars from Freckled Fawn, wood veneer acorns from my stash and papers from Pink Paislee.
Thanks for joining me today! Happy Small Business Saturday!
Hi Chaps! Laura here with a birthday card to share…
I’ve used a mix of collections from Pretty Little Studio, some ribbon from Crafty Ribbons and sequins and doilies from SpiegelMom Scraps. The cluster is made up of off cuts from a scrapbook layout, nearly nothing needed re-cutting as I just played with the pieces I had until they looked ‘right’.
The white doilies take colour beautifully, the blue that you can see is dyed with spray inks. My only advice is don’t move them when they are wet as they become delicate when saturated.
The sequins come from three mixes; Spring Bloom sequins, Magic Day In The Park, and Moonshine Delight.
Thanks for looking,
Hi there, Laura here today!
I love to document the weird and wonderful in my scrapbooking… well this fits in to that category!
My Mum was given some French onions for her birthday from friends who had been in France for a show. These particular onions are legendary, and they did taste better than ‘normal’ ones!
I have noticed that my layouts either feature sequins or enamel dots. I had not consciously kept them apart but that is how it seems. Even though I class them both as final finishing touches there is no reason they cannot be used together – so I did! I also hand dyed a piece of lace to mimic the tricolore (French flag).
Continuing on with the French theme I strung some of the gorgeous 10mm Moonshine Delight sequins on blue, white and red threads. I layered them over some giant scalloped glitter washi tape. The gold washi on its own was too much for me so I also included the white paper backing the washi comes on. Incidentally the white scallop gave me the perfect journalling spot.
Because the white backing was non-stick (so it released the washi) it would not stick with any of the glues I tried! In the end I ran it through my sewing machine to anchor it down. I love to take something that I would have thrown away and use it in my crafting – do you ever do this?
Hi Guys, Laura here sharing a layout featuring the gorgeous Glass Slipper sequin mix.
I’ve had a play with some new to me cut files. To be honest they are so gorgeous it doesn’t take much to make a lovely layout with them.
I went for the layered approach and backed some of the apertures with patterned papers. I added a few foam adhesive squares to pop up some leaves and flowers.
I then went through and stuck some Glass Slipper sequins down and added a few Moonshine Delight too. I tried to place them on all the different levels of die cuts. This mix of sequins really catch the light and having a bit of sparkle on all the different levels accentuates the dimension of the layout.
