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…
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.
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.

Hello everyone! I cannot believe October has finally arrived! Here in Southeastern Wisconsin the weather is turning cooler and Fall is in the air, which I love! I also absolutely adore my guest designer this month, Amy Lee aka The Craft Bunny! We ‘met’ through Etsy and I’m so happy we did. Amy’s YouTube channel is lovely and growing more and more every week. Please give a warm SpiegelMom Scraps welcome to Amy this month!
Hi there! My name is Amy Lee. I am the October Guest Designer forSpiegelMomScrapShop. I have a YouTube channel calledTheCraftBunny. This is actually my VERY FIRST time in a Guest Design Team and I am so EXCITED!
Today, I am sharing an anime inspired card featuring some awesome sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps. I have always loved anime as a child. Their screen effects were extremely glamorous and very pretty. So in this project, I decided to channel my favorite anime memories into card making.
To start off, I stamped my Gorjuss Girl image in black, paper pierced her dress and then colored the rest with my color pencils. To make her even more realistic, I added a magic circle image from Google Images. I also made her a magic wand using a painted toothpick and some embellishments in my stash.
The card front background was created using pink, yellow and lavender acrylic paints. Then I adhered the focal point of my card using foam tape and hot glue. Then, I embellished the card using some mulberry paper flowers and sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps. To match the color scheme, I used sequins fromSilver Sunrise Mix, Moonshine Delight, Gold RushandSunny Days. I love adding in elements from the same color family to add fullness to my project.For the inside of the card, I simply adhered some lace to prop up the card front. That’s it for this card! If you’d like to see more, please check out theprocess videoon myYoutube channel. A full list of supplies is also available there. Thanks for stopping by and I will see you next week!
Happy Sunday everyone! I’m so excited that 2015 is here and I’m kicking it off by sponsoring a $25.00 prize frommy Etsy Shopover at the Creative Scrappers Challenge Blog.Here’s one of the fabulous sketches you can play along with this month. All you need to do for a chance to win is create a layout based on one or both of these awesome CS sketches, Sketch 285 and/or 286, and and link it up!That’s a whole lotta scrapbooking goodies my friends! And here is the layout I created based on the sketch.
The super cute triangles on my layout are from Creative Embellishments and such a fun element on my page. Just like a lot of chipboard, it comes a plain brown. I really wanted to use it, but it needed it to be softer and not a hard brown color. So, I turned to my embossing powders and heat gun to tackle this chore. I chose the triangles I wanted on my layout and pressed them into my Versamark Ink pad to get them nice and sticky. Then I poured my Ranger white embossing powder over them, then heat set them. I have a video coming soon on how I did this also. Here are some close ups!
