My Girl Baby Layout with Guest Designer Karla

Hey there crafty friends! Karla here today, and I’m super excited to be Guest Designing here today- what an honor! Today, I’m sharing a layout that I made of my youngest daughter, Erica, when she was just a year old. Wow – time flies – she’s now almost 5!

I started off choosing a sketch and layered on papers and stickers from the Echo Park Petticoats and Pinstripes collection by Lori Whitlock. I just love these lovely bright papers, and the pretty sequins from the Pinky Pie, Spring Blooms and Let’s Be Mermaids Sequin Mixes from the SpiegelMom Scraps Shop were the perfect embellishments! I love using a sketch as a starting point, then choosing my photos, papers and embellishments.

These wonderful Cork Chevrons are so awesome for layering! I pulled out some paper ephemera diecuts from a My Mind’s Eye All Things Girl package to add to my layout. I love the vintage feel of these diecuts!

I used the tiny silver stars from the Pinky Pie collection on this pretty crown, which I layered over a sticker from the EP collection pack. I added some handwritten journaling and stamped the date with an Amy Tan date stamp. I love that a lot of the paper packs come with coordinated journaling cards in them. Even if I choose not to use them in a pocket page, they are great to use on a layout!

These sweet little flower sequins in the Pinky Pie Sequin Mix were just perfect to layer on the flower sticker. They are subtle and add a pretty shine! You can see some of the stitching that I added across my page. Erica was very excited to #1 – have another layout of her own baby pics and #2 – help me with the stitching!

What About Wednesday: Felicia’s Old and New Challenge

Aloha!! It’s Hannah here. This week I thought I would take on Felicia’s Old and New challenge. Let me refresh your memory if you don’t remember the details of the challenge. “The first step is to use and old and new scrapbooking product on your Layout. Explain on your layout what is old and what is new. The second step it is to use and old and new photo on the layout.”

I only started scrapping in 2014 so I definitely don’t have supplies that are ten years old or anything but I definitely have my share of older products. Like a pile of paper stacks that I bought when I first started scrapbooking. I couldn’t believe that you could get so many pretty papers in a stack altogether. haha!! They are still sitting in my space waiting for me to use. To be honest I probably won’t ever finish them completely. (I am however ok with that though)

IMG_9094 I decided to pull some of those paper packs for this challenge. I took out some Pebbles paper packs I had. One of the papers I fussy cut some of the chit chat bubbles out of it, to use as embellishments.

Not all the chit chat bubbles had phrases that worked for my layout so I added old phrase stickers on them. I was surprised that I had as many as I did. I had tons from Simple Stories, Glitz and Bella Blvd, to name a few.

I love how the bubbles look layered with some old stickers, some navy feltie hearts and a mix of sequins from the shop. I picked a couple of packs of sequins that had colors that matched the colors on my layout. I used sequins from Passion Flower and A Mermaid’s Tale.

I used a white doily as a layer in my papers. This is a layout comparing my two daughters now from when they were younger to how they are now. I took two pictures of them from this past year and two photos of them from 2011. I printed or cut them done to about 2 1/2 inches by 2 1/2 inches. this smaller size allowed me enough room to embellishment and to get a lot of journaling in.

On my bottom cluster I used one of my newer purchases. I bought the scratch off stickers from Shimelle’s new line Go Now Go. They are super cute. It is fun to be able to write a secret journalling for my daughters to scratch off when they get older.

I added some feltie hearts and more sequins to that cluster so it matched closely to my top two clusters. I try to do this so it helps tie the whole layout together and feels cohesive.

I used some of my favorite older Thickers from Dear Lizzy that are gold and glittered. What’s not to love about glitter and gold?! It gives this layout some glamour.

For the layers behind my photos, because I have a hard time not doing some kind of layering, I used that beautiful new Dear Lizzy black floral paper from the Saturdays Collection.  I used some old cream and pink paper to matte my photos. Then added some new teal striped paper from Shimelle. I kept the layers simple though. I think it is easy to go crazy with layers of different patterns and colors when you use old lines with new lines. Many of the collections now have more of a white tone and many of the older collections have more cream tones. I tried to keep this in mind when I picked the Shimelle cream toned paper pairing it with the old cream papers. The pink in the Dear Lizzy florals, matches well with the pink old paper. This really help the papers feel like they were meant to be together. I also outlined some layers too, which I think helps them tie in better too.

Here is a look at the whole layout together.

Happy Boy with Laura

Scrapbook Sessions

Hi Folks, Laura here today to share a quick, clean and simple layout.

IMG_4250

I seem to be collecting quite a few colourful cottons and as I don’t sew that much I want to try and work them in to my scrapbooking.  I also found myself hoarding these gold glitter circle stickers…

IMG_4253

Why not combine these two favourites and throw in some gold rush metallic sequins too?!

IMG_4252

I loved the look of the gold glitter circles nesting on the thread and wondered if chunky cork stars would look as good…  well, they did to me so on they went too!

IMG_4255

I gave my shaped photo a nest of thread too, a simple gold glitter title and then a gentle splattering of Shimmerz in colours to match my threads.

I have a process video too if you’d like to watch…

I have used Gold Rush sequins, various Shimmerz, and Chunky Cork Stars.  You can use the code Laura15 if you stock up at SpiegelMom Scraps to receive a discount.

Thanks so much for looking!

#HSCaptureLife: Day 11 ~ Today Was Totally Happy

Hello everyone! Welcome to my new blog subbies!! It’s great to ‘meet’ you here. I’d love to know how you found my blog and where you’re from!! Don’t be shy!! Please share in the comments!

Today I’m sharing another layout, inspired by Heidi Swapp’s Capture Life prompts. This layout is inspired by Day 11: Today was totally ______. This day was totally happy for sure! Abby & I planted flowers while our big girls were at school. We had a blast digging in the dirt, even if we were a bit chilly.  Some of the flower pots (not pictured here) were also for my Girl Scout troop’s bridging ceremony in June so this was extra special for us!!  In scrapbooking, and in life, the truly important things are these little everyday moments. Scrapbooking these moments is what I live for.  We live to remember!  Our lives are always crazy busy: soccer, school, gymnastics, Girl Scouts (2 troops), religious education, school, work and let’s pray we all stay healthy!! Treasuring these everyone moments means the world to us!

I still have some fabulous partial Clique Kits left that I’m trying to kill, while mixing in embellishments from my stash & my shop. These next several months I’ll be doing my best to kill various kits I have on hand & destash my stash!! We are close to breaking ground on our new home & the less stuff I have to move the faster I’ll have things back up & running in our new home!! Challenge accepted!

This layout uses Heidi Swapp’s bold & beautiful September Skies line along with some newer Heidi Swapp chipboard pieces from my LSS, a white doily, Freckled Fawn paper clips & a couple washi tapes. I also loosely followed this sketch! Below you’ll find a link to my process video for this layout on YouTube.

    

You can also watch my process video for this layout HERE!!  You’ll also see my using my FAVORITE new adhesive runner, the EZ Runner Grand!  This thing is smooth as butter and super easy to refill!  If you’d like to see a real life comparison between the EZ Runner and the Scotch ATG you must check out THIS VIDEO!!  The EZ Runner is half the weight and the refill just drops right into the tape fun.. No more wrapping adhesive around anything!!  

Thank you for much for spending your time with me today.  I hope you’ve enjoyed my layout and have been inspired to capture your every day moments and document them!  Accept the challenge and get started today!

Until next time, do something creative today!

Next up… my new process video and layout are up and running finally!!  We had our laptop die on Saturday… awesome right!  So, I’m a bit behind this week, especially after a leak in the basement was super close to my scrap area!!  EEKKK!   But, after a late night session I’m ready to rock and roll again!  Here’s my watercolor background layout, featuring Shimmerz Creameez watercolors!! I’m so lovin’ these watercolors!!  After creating my watercolor background (YouTube video here on how I created it), I began adding some very simple layers of Heidi Swapp Hello Today papers, cork butterflies, pink baker’s twine, Pink Fresh Studio puffy stickers, felt hearts and Dear Lizzy wood veneer ‘Best Ever’ for my title!  

To create my loops of baker’s twine, I simply laid out my twine with the loops how I wanted them.  Next, I added a few dabs of Aleene’s Tacky Glue to the tops of the loops and let it dry for a few minutes.  Then, I added the baker’s twine loopy-banner onto my layout using the same tacky glue!  Pretty easy and great way to use your twine and strings!

I really love how the water color background looks!!  There’s just a little bit of shimmer in the watercolor, which is hard to see in the photos.  It’s so pretty!!
