Pocket Page Scrapbooking with Karla – Happy Birthday Canada!

Hi friends! It’s Karla here today with a fun birthday layout for this week’s theme on the SpiegelMom Scraps blog – ‘Scrapbook a Birthday You Normally Wouldn’t’! Well, since it was recently Canada’s 150th birthday, I thought I’d use this opportunity to scrapbook Canada Day! I grabbed the Honor Guard, Be True 2 You and My Clementine sequin mixes to match with my photos and the papers I was using. I really love mixing and matching the amazing colours in each sequin mix! I love the iridescent colours in the My Clementine mix – when I put it on my paper it took on a beautiful green. And the Honor Guard has a gorgeous red – perfect for 4th of July and Canada Day, but also wonderful for any time you need a pop of red colour!

I used the awesome Strong & Free collection from Wild Whisper and grabbed some of their 4×6 and 3×4 cards as well as some of the patterned paper from the 12×12 sheets. I layered some of the diecut and cork (linked below) and stamped a date. Now, I don’t know about you, but I can NEVER get those date stamps to work right the first time, lol! So, I just roll with it and make it look like I meant for it to look like that 😉 The maple leaf journaling card was beautiful, but of course I love adding a few sequins to make it shine!

This fun Happy Birthday cutfile and the ones I used above are FREE HERE, along with lots of other awesome cutfiles! I used a gold pen to colour in the flames and add an ombre effect to the letters. The secret to getting the files down in the right spot after you cut them is to lay the negative cut down and then glue in your cuts. After, you simply pull up the negative frame. I used a border strip from the Wild Whisper papers and added a row of sequins with Glossy Accents. A few more of the cutfiles layered over top and a little maple leaf tag hanging on some SpiegelMom Scraps Hunter Green burlap string completes this card!

Project Life Shaker Pockets

Happy Monday!

Today I wanted to share some simple ways to incorporate shaker pockets into pocket scrapbooking spreads. One of my favorite things to do is match products to sequin mixes – they make the perfect embellishments for any spread.

Details and Neutrals 9 x 12 Project Life Spread #spiegelmomscraps #shakerpockets #pocketscrapbooking #projectlife #beckyhiggins #woodveneer #sequins #scrapbooking #papercrafting

I love recording details of the decor in our home. The “Green Acres” mix in the shop pairs perfectly with the neutral tones of this page. I chose to layer the sequins over top of a filler card to create added dimension and confetti. Looking to mix up your next spread? Pick a card with a pretty design and enclose it with some coordinating sequins. I love the effect!

Details and Neutrals 9 x 12 Project Life Spread #spiegelmomscraps #shakerpockets #pocketscrapbooking #projectlife #beckyhiggins #woodveneer #sequins #scrapbooking #papercrafting

I used cards from the Project Life “Everyday Edition” core kit along with a few Shimelle “Little by Little” products.

My second shaker pocket project is a 4 x 12 insert I made. I love layering different sizes of project life page protectors in my albums for dimension.

Really how perfect is that “Pandora’s Ombre” sequin mix?!

Project Life insert #spiegelmomscraps #sequins #shakerpocket #projectlife #papercrafting #scrapbooking #beckyhiggins #dearlizzy #creatwithsms @wordsandpaperscrcaps @spiegelmom_scraps

I chose to use pocket cards with subtle patterns so the sequins would be emphasized. I also like how the embellishment tag in the bottom pocket helps balance out the heavy top.

I hope you were inspired to create some shaker pockets in a unique way! I think I would include a smaller insert with every spread if I had room.

Quick and Easy Project Life Page

Hey, everyone!  Kat popping in today to share a Project Life spread with you.  So…I am way, way, waaaaaay behind on my PL album this year and I need to catch up quickly.  Luckily, by picking out just a few core supplies, I am able to create a spread in a short amount of time and still have it embellished and pretty-looking.  Most importantly, I am getting these memories on the page before I forget them entirely J

For this spread I decided to stick with a PL mini core kit (I used Amy Tangerine’s Plus One kit), my favorite hearts & arrows wood veneers, an assortment of sequins and some label stickers.

Here is my spread:

@spiegelmomscraps @kraftykat09 @jodyspiegelhoff @AmyTangerine @studiocalico @americancrafts @dearlizzy, #sequins #amytangerine #americancrafts #plusone #goldrush #silverstardust #woodveneer

My favorite detail from the spread is the confetti pocket.  Confetti pockets are such a quick and easy way to add interest to a PL spread.  I mixed the gold rush sequins with the gold stardust confetti (they are sold out and being restocked soon, but you can find the silver assortment here) and I used my fuse tool to close up the pocket.

@spiegelmomscraps @kraftykat09 @jodyspiegelhoff @AmyTangerine @studiocalico @americancrafts @dearlizzy, #sequins #amytangerine #americancrafts #plusone #goldrush #silverstardust #woodveneer

I also love the Dear Lizzy wood veneers and knew that the “Best Ever” one would be perfect to layer on top of a scenery photo from the week – just another easy way to add some quick interest.

@spiegelmomscraps @kraftykat09 @jodyspiegelhoff @AmyTangerine @studiocalico @americancrafts @dearlizzy, #sequins #amytangerine #americancrafts #plusone #goldrush #silverstardust #woodveneer

The rest of the spread is fairly simple with a smattering of wood veneers, sequins and enamel shapes.  This page came together in about 30 minutes and most importantly, it’s done and added to my 2015 album!

GD Renee Joy ~ Part IV

Hi, there, scrappy friends….I hope everyone had a fun weekend. Are you ready to start scrappin’….I bet some of you already have. Here is what I have been up to. I decided to create another pocket page for one for one of my scrapbooks. As always, it was fun playing with my embellishments from SpiegelMom Scraps Ok, let’s get started. Here is the completed layout; then, I will get into the details.

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps

It is always fun scrapping pics of my kids when they were younger. I definitely have plenty of those pics to scrap yet. This is great for Jody’s 15 minutes a day plan 🙂 Speaking of a plan, here is the first detail I wanted to include. It was fun watching my children together as they shared my daughter’s 7th birthday.

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps

Oh, and I just love the heart with all of those lovely sentiments. I really like the way it fits in the pocket so nicely.

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @heidiswapp, #heidiswapp #spiegelmomscraps #sequins #heart #pocketpage #projectlife #pocketletter #studiocalico #foreverlovehearts

Well, you know how much I adore the sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps….I had to use them on this layout, too. Before I show you the detail shot, I would like to share how sequins have become a part of our home. My hubby found some on the floor in our kitchen and and asked me if I needed these. I told my hubby that I definitly did….I think he gets the picture….really, what kitchen floor doesn’t need a bit of sparkle, right?
