Apparently this month has me all lovey without even realizing it. You may have noticed my love-inspired post a few weeks ago – well I have another this week. We had so many wonderful pictures of our wedding I’ll have material to scrap for years. This layout features some beautiful products and one of my favorite pictures from our wedding.
I started off with a gorgeous watercolor printed paper by Paige Evans for Pink Paislee and splattered Shimmerz Acri Tonez In the Navyto add a little pop.
I used a cut file from Paper Issues on navy paper to match the Acri Tonez – placing it behind where my picture would go. In addition to the cut file I layered with some vellum + gold foiled cardstock by Shimelle.
I then stitched on the “I Love You” title cut with my silhouette from white cardstock. Along with that, I stitched on a navy heart feltie *I’ve had my pack of felties for months and use them on everything .. so many in one pack!
I then layered a few embellishments over top of my photo – including some DIY and from Crate Paper Gather collection. Oh, and can’t forget the white painted cork heart from the “I Cork U” pack.
I finished off my layout with the exclusive “Steal My Heart” sequin mix. There are so many mixes in the shop right now perfect for springtime! Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Sunday everyone!! I hope you’re having a great weekend! This is Megan and I have a layout to share with you today that I used the free monthly cut file on.
I really loved this cut file and new I just had to used it on an artsy layout. I wanted to do something different with it besides backing it with patterned paper so I decided to pull out my Shimmerz Sprays.
Hello everyone and welcome! Felicia here with a very funny photo of two lovelies in my life and I have to say they keep me laughing all the time. I had asked them to act normal before snapping this photo and this is what they did, Lol! Too funny! Having my two grandchildren over is a blessing and I enjoy it every time they come visit.
So I changed my photo to black and white in order to use my favorite embellishments, which are the new sequins from the Speigelmom Scraps Shop called Amore. Take a look!
Lol! I just can’t get over this photo! Here is a close up of the sequins.
The papers and ephemera are from the Paige Evans Take Me Away collection and I love how the Amore sequins match the collection permanently.
I had to use that chipboard bow to fill in the gap at the top of the layout.
Thank you for stopping by and be sure to check out the new sequins in the Spiegelmom Scraps shop! You can also use Felicia15 to get a 15% discount on your order so have fun!

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. I added some gorgeous Shimmerz Dazzlerz in Licoriceusing 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 myKaisercraft metal diesas 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!
Hello friends! Katty Miranda here for another What about Wednesday. Today I am focusing on cut files. Cut files are a great way to add interest to any layout.

You can download the free cut file here: http://spiegelmomscraps.com/sparklers-unite-dt-blog-hop/
I used the Summer word and cut it out multiple times on American Crafts White Textured Cardstock. As a background I chose a blue hombre patterned paper from the Pink Paislee Fancy Free Paper Pad. I am scrapbooking a 4×91/2 panoramic photo of Hanauma Bay in Oahu Hawaii from our recent summer vacation. I lined up the photos and the cut files vertically on the page. For the open cut files I used 6×6 paper pads from my stash to back the openings. I chose patterned papers in the blue and green tones. The regular cut words I covered in beautiful Sequins.
…..SpiegelMom herself!! Hey everyone, Jody here today and I’m your guest designer this lovely month of June! I thought it would be fun in preparation for the SpiegelMom Scraps 6 year anniversary month in July to hang out on the blog more this month so you can get to know me better.
So, here’s a little about me! I’m Jody! I’m a full time workin’ Mama with a super busy family life and some crazy kiddos! I’ve been a crafter since I was a little girl and but really dove into this hobby in about 2003. I went to my first Stampin Up! workshop with my BFF Jenn and was hooked. From there I quickly fell in love with scrapbooking and never looked back. I was an independent consultant for Memory Works from 2006 until they closed their doors in 2013. I was on their Design Team and loved so many things about that company!
In 2010 I started SpiegelMom Scraps and ran my business on Etsy for several years, connecting with so many wonderful crafters all over the world! From there, I was one of the founders of Clique Kits and fell even more in love with this hobby. My time were was an amazing journey. Last February I stepped down as I had to move forward with many things in my family life and SMS. Now, things are busy as ever and I’m looking forward to this summer!
My family will be moving this summer and I’m very excited to get into our new home! I can’t wait to set up my craft studio, video filming & photography area and the kids craft area!! Besides my kitchen, that area will be my favorite place in our home! I’ll give you a tour after it’s done!
Ok my friends, enough about me for today and on with my layout! Today I’m sharing one of a few layouts I created with the Pink Paislee Fancy Free collection. I used the pretty ombre teal background as my base and cut a bunch of those beautiful butterflies from The Cut Shoppe! I’ve really been trying to stretch my papers lately and cut files make it so easy!! This awesome file is from the Love Everlasting cut file collection, which you can find here. I think my favorite thing about the butterflies is how the cut file compliments the stained glass in my photo.
I used this lovely cut file to compliment the entire feel of the photo & layout. Besides that, I wanted to emphasize the word ‘you’ so I painted on some Dazzlerz texture paste in Coral Me Crazy and love how it turned out!
Here’s a close up of the glassine bag sequin pocket I created as a photo matte. I love how the glassine bag softens the sequins just enough ❤️
Here are some other fabulous places to find yourself some FREE cut files.
For those that don’t have a Silouette or other digital cutting machine, be sure to check out Crafty Jen Schow’s YouTube channel also! She’s talks about using the files even without those machines. Here’s a link to a video that talks about print and cut files HERE.
