Need A Quick Christmas Present?


Hello Crafty Friends!  Laura here today, and if you are anything like me there will be one present you have forgotten!  Well, I’ve got you covered!

I’m a bit obsessed with sequins – but you already knew that! – and it stands to reason that that obsession spills over in to shaky things… shaker pockets in project life, shaker cards, shaky areas on a layout…  I’ve gone one further – shaker coasters!


It takes seconds to make.  1. Grab an empty fillable coaster and a packet of sequins.  2. Fill.  3. Clip shut.  4. Ta da!  I used Peachy Sherbet but any mix that doesn’t include very tiny sequins will do.  They manage to work their way out somehow!


I found my fillable coasters on a promotional products website.  The kind of place that sells blank keyrings, pens and badges to businesses who personalise them and give them away to customers.

Carrying on with the fabulous 12 days of discounts…


Today’s code is 17SEQUIN and don’t forget to leave a note if you are combining shipping!

Getting Sketchy Again with Laura


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!

Flower power

Cards, tags

Hi all – it’s Anna Sigga here with you today and since yesterday was the First Day of Summer in Iceland I decided to create a flower power card to celebrate.


The Peachy Sherbet Sequins are so bright and cheerful and go perfectly with the flowers I chose. I added a White Lace Paper Doilies to the background and then I used a mix of glimmer mists, a stencils and light texture paste to ad some interest to the card-stock.


I just love how the Chunky Stars add just the right amount of texture and warmth to the card.

Chunky Cork with Laura

Hi Friends!  Laura here to day to share a craft hack and some scrappy happenings!

Scrappy Happenings

I’ve had my eye on some cork hearts with gold flecks in them, but each time I’ve tried to buy them online they are sold out.  I put my thinking cap on and came up with a plan to make my own…  you can watch a tutorial here or in short; one pack of the gorgeous chunky cork hearts, some two way glue and some foil or gold leaf.  A few dabs of the glue then add the gold leaf and hey presto!


I’m really pleased with how they turned out.  I experimented with polka dots and a bigger smudge of glue too…


For my first layout today I used My Mind’s Eye’s On Trend 2 collection that came in my recent scrapbooking kit.


I added in a few of my hearts and some gold sequins.


I’m not keen on my journalling showing so I made a little pocket to hide a journalling card in.  I always have some glassine bags on hand.  You can easily change the size with  few lines of sewing.


I was so pleased with how the hearts looked on the page that I immediately started work on another!


This one is made from the same collection and includes the cork heart with the most metal leaf on.  I also added in some twine, Mint Chip sequin mix and Peachy Sherbet sequin mix.

You can find my supplies in the SpiegelMom Scraps shop and if you use the code Laura15 can bag yourself a discount!

Thanks for joining me today,
