What About Wednesday: 8 1/2 by 11 Layout

Aloha My Scrappy Friends!! How is everyone’s spring going? I am ready for the warmer weather and enjoying the days it’s not raining. I have been spending a lot more time outside with my puppy, Kona, trying to get her energy out.

With all the rain, she gets antsy and into things when she doesn’t have that playtime. She loves to play fetch and run after a ball. She doesn’t always give my the ball, but she is starting to get the hang of it.

Speaking of her stealing stuff, that is what my layout is about. Her love to steal things that don’t belong to her and make me try to get them. Sometimes I think she thinks it’s a game. Sometimes she thinks she needs to guard it, especially if it’s anything paper or food.

In the pictures Kona stole my son’s light saber and kept trying to hide under our fireplace. She still thinks she fits under it, but she doesn’t. I, of course, took out my camera out to take a picture. Instead of saving my son’s light saber.

Here is a look at my layout.

 

I decided today to make a 8 1/2x 11 layout. I am using Two 3×4 photos which will fit nicely on my layout. I love the balance of open space to photos space on my layout. For me, I like more open space on the layout than photos. This gives me room to play with embellishments on my layouts too.

I started off with some white card stock. This has become my go for starting a layout. The artist in me gets all giddy about a blank canvas and what it can become once I add things. I used a black and white pattern so any of the colors that I used on the rest of the layout would pop. I knew at some point I wanted to use some colorful sequins. I may be a little obsessed with the colorful sequins.

On one of the medium shipping tags I added strips of various scrap papers from my desk to cover the bottom half. This is where most of the color is located on my layout. I like ow it becomes the focal piece. I added a die-cut word on the strips and some “Hot Right Now” Sequins. Tied some blue baker’s twine and made a cute little swirl with the twine.

Everything looks cuter with a feltie heart and tiny attacher staples.

In addition to the patterned paper on the tag I also added a few strips of patterns throughout the layout. One at the top, one at the end of the black and white Simple Stories paper and then another strip near the bottom of the layout.

I added a die-cut on both the top an bottom strips and added some feltie hearts and “Hot Right Now” sequins. Keeping it simple in the clusters was my main goal. I didn’t want to over embellish and take away from the photos.

I added the title around the photos, on the corner. I also added a die-cut as part of my title on the photos, near the chipboard alphas from Pink Fresh Studio that I used. I don’t usually do my titles this way, but i wanted to do something a little different.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This was a really fun and cute layout that I made and I was really pleased how it turned out. I love that I can use my favorite photos to share and remember these moments that make up our lives. I really love when I can use cute products like sequins and feltie hearts!!

 

Thanks for joining me today!! I hope I see you around the Facebook group sharing the projects and layouts you are making using the SpiegelMom Scraps sequins and products.

Here’s my layout to celebrate International Scrapbooking Day!!  This was by far the fussiest layout I’ve done in a long time.  I used a Jillibean Soup die cut background and filled all those lovely circles with the new 6X6″ Pink Fresh Studio Felicity collection.  That was the fussy part!!  I also created a few little shaker pockets within my layout with the Spring Blooms & Silver Stars Sequins. I created these little sequin pockets using recycled clear packaging and popped up the entire layout using craft foam.  After I cut all the paper circles, the rest of the layout came together very quickly.

Project Life || Growing Up Too Fast

@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @teresacollins @wermemorykeepers @projectlife, #spiegelmomscraps #projectlife #scrapbook #DIY #papercraft #memorykeeping

Hello, hello!! Jody here today and oh how I’ve missed blogging!  As you have probably seen, I’ve been busting my butt behind the scenes these last few months getting ready for big things in 2016.  The first big thing was the tripling of my Design Team, The Sparklers!!  They are a fabulous bunch of ladies from around the globe!!  I hope you had a chance to check the Design Team reveal posts HERE and HERE.  

Today, I’m sharing a Project Life spread I’ve been playing around with for the last few days.  These photos are from the first day of school this year and now that I’m looking at them here, Sari is taller.. up to my neck!!  I need to put a brick on that girl’s head to slow her down!!  Sheesh.. ok mommy rant over.

I’m using the We R Memory Keepers photo sleeves and really love them. They’re thicker plastic than the Project Life sleeves, which is HUGE for me. I’ve ripped too many of the PL brand ones because I tend to like chunky embellishments and it’s tough to squeeze them into the pockets.  I really do try to keep my pocket pages pretty simple.  It doesn’t always happen, but it’s thought that counts for me LOL!!  I am trying to get caught up after all… eh’em…. 

Another thing I’ve been working on lately is using the papers in my stash. This can definitely be a challenge though because by the time I have a couple papers left in a collection or some larger scraps to work with, most or all of the coordinating embellishments have been used up.  Adding those little details are what I absolutely love to do and that’s when I reach for the unique embellishments from the Scrap Shop right here!  Whether it’s cork, sequins, felt die cuts or another fun embellishment, I always have something thats just right.

Below, I’ve added the Chunky Cork Hearts to the bottom middle pocket and really love the contrast and texture they add.  They have the perfect earthy feel that works well with all the colors on the page.

Silver Dazzlerz Texture Paste: Yes Please!!

Yes, silver!! You all know I love gold accents & papers but silver is another metallic must have in my scrappy stash! It can create so many different looks and effects, the possibilities are fabulous & endless!  That why I fell in love with the new Dazzlerz Foiled Again texture paste. It’s magical. 

For my layout, I used an Amy Tangerine stencil and added the Foiled Again Dazzlerz in a few areas around my 12×12 paper. Then I added a few layers of May Arts Ribbon pink burlap string and ephemera from my stash. As you can see some of the hearts in the stencil didn’t get filled in all the way. I’m totally ok with that & love the look it creates. I also popped up my ephemera with some foam squares adhesives.@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @shimmerzpaints @mayartsribbon, @websterspages, #spiegelmomscraps #jodyspiegelhoff #shimmerzpaints #dazzlerz #texturepaste #burlapstring #mixedmedia #scrapbook #pinkfreshstudio #puffystickers #paint #girly  @spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @shimmerzpaints @mayartsribbon, @websterspages, #spiegelmomscraps #jodyspiegelhoff #shimmerzpaints #dazzlerz #texturepaste #burlapstring #mixedmedia #scrapbook #pinkfreshstudio #puffystickers #paint #girlyHere are a few more angles where you can really see the shimmerz & dimension of the Foiled Again Dazzlerz. @spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @shimmerzpaints @mayartsribbon, @websterspages, #spiegelmomscraps #jodyspiegelhoff #shimmerzpaints #dazzlerz #texturepaste #burlapstring #mixedmedia #scrapbook #pinkfreshstudio #puffystickers #paint #girly

I decided to add a couple Pink Fresh Studio enamel frames & puffy stickers. I love that those puffy stickers look like clouds!!  Here’s my finished layout, featuring my love of Sari & Abby’s eyelashes.

Summer + Cork = Butterflies!

It’s JULY!!! EEKKK!!  Can you believe it?!  As our family gets ready to celebrate July 4th, I’ve finally taken a break from all the creating and packing of new products that will in my shop very soon!  Whew!!  Hint, hint… you don’t want to miss my Scrap Party coming up on July 10th.  This year I’m partying it up for my 5th year of business and couldn’t be more excited!  My Sparklers Design Team and I are teaming up with V’s Sweet Ideas, a couple very special, hand picked guests ~ YouTuber Teresa Huckle, aka craftinmommaML & a fabulous local card maker Ka Slagoski of Stamping Smiles Designs!  Please check them out and follow them on their sites!

Scrap Party plug, check!  Onto my layout today!  I want to talk about texting for a minute.  We do it, our kids do it, nearly everyone’s doing it!  And let me tell you, there are MEMORIES in these texts messages!  Yes!  Think about it. Has your child ever texted you from someone else’s cell phone or maybe they sent a sweet text grandma and grandpa!  These are some pretty fun everyday  moments that I want to document and scrapbook about!  These sweet text messages are wonderful reminders of our relationships, personalities and our everyday life.

I work most weekends and my husband is home with our girls.  Sometimes Sari and Hannah really miss me, especially during school when I only get to see them at night.  So, often times they ask to use their Dad’s phone and send me a sweet little text message.  It totally makes my day and makes them feel better at the same time.  To print them, I screen shot them and upload them to Walgreen’s right from the APP in my phone.  I usually wait until their Instagram prints go on sale before I print, but they’re saved, safe and sound 🙂

So, my challenge to you is to start documenting those sweet or funny text messages!  Here are the finishing touches and lots of layers banners on my layout.  I’ve added a bunch of little stickers from my stash from Amy Tangerine, Shimelle, Elle’s Studio, Crate Paper, Michael’s Craft Store and Pink Fresh Studio!

Those adorable cork butterflies are new in my shop also! They come 10 in  a package and are even self adhesive!  So perfect for summer!
