LET’S GET SKETCHY TEAM UP! SO GOOD!

Hello hello everyone and welcome to the Spiegelmom Scraps blog!  Staying warm and cozy is one of the best things to do during the winter cold months.  Food plays even a bigger part of being warm and cozy and some people even call this time of year the season for comfort food.  Well since I have been trying my best to stay on a proper diet, I am finding salads to be my comfort food believe it or not, Lol!

Here is the sketch that was created by Sara Scraps and I just love this one! Also be sure to check out the LGS (Let’s Get Sketchy) blog, where they will be using the same sketch!

So here is a layout of my new found comfort food!  Salomon salad with a almond flavored vinagerette salad dressing.  It was SO GOOD!

This was so fun to create and I used my favorite embellishment!  Sequins!  Yes these are new sequins called 2 Cool 4 U by the Spiegelmom Scraps.  I used them to add more interest to the layout.  Here is a closer look.

I also used the Felicia Jane kit for October called Emeline that is where the wood grain hearts came from along with all the papers and puffy stickers.

I just love the combination of the puffy stickers and sequins, they just give this layout such character.

Take a look at those puffy alphas!  They work out perfectly for the title of this layout.

KEEPIN’ COZY

Hello everyone!  It is that time of year where the weather gets colder, the fire place’s fire up, and  soups are comfort food.  Well in Northern California it does get cold, but not as cold as it did back east in New York where it can’t get more than 10 degrees below zero.  Here in California the only place where it can get as cold as New York and snow is up north in Lake Tahoe.  This is where I took my grandson for the first time and he had a ball.

We are teaming up with LGK (Let’s Get Sketchy) and will be using a sketch this week created by Sara Scraps and it is an awesome sketch.  Be sure to check them out!

So here is my take on Sara’s sketch!

I really just love how this sketch turned out especially the new sequins from the Spiegelmom Scraps shop called Classic Cozy.  Take a look at how I glued them on top of the punched out snow flakes.

There are some other details on this layout using the Classic Cozy.

Here you can see I used some Dylusions spray in London Blue for the droplets on the layout.

As you can see there are some other colors in the sequin pack and snow flakes!  That is why I love this pack of sequins.

What about Wednesday: Sara Scraps Sketch Team Up with Let’s Get Sketchy

Aloha!!  This month is super fun as we share sketches with the Let’s Get Sketchy design team throughout November.  We are using a new sketch each week. This week’s sketch was designed by Sara, from our design team. Here is a look at that sketch.

There is tons of room for layering and a way to add some fun layering with the butterfly element and something shiny. I was excited to give this sketch a try.

I decided to make a 8 1/2 x 11 spread, since that is what I am working on in my cozy album. I was excited to try to convert this sketch to the size I was scrapbooking in. That is the fun thing about sketches, adding your own twists to them.

I started out with plain white cardstock, from the SpiegelMom Scraps store. Except for the matte behind my photo and a few leaves on my layout I went used Shimelle’s collection Go Now Go. I knew it would be perfect for this travel and fall themed layout.

This layout is about my tradition of watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thanksgiving while we get ready for our meal later in the day. We sit with our coffee and baked goodies, usually something like home cooked cinnamon rolls or french toast that was made ahead of time the night before and baked in the oven. We get comfy on the couch and watch the balloons floating down New York City’s streets as My Mom got the turkey and fixing prepped and ready to get baked and prepared for the day.

One year after I was married my parents saved up to go down to New York City to see the parade in person. The photo I am using is from that trip. I thought it was a fun way to tell about this cozy holiday tradition we have.

Because this layout is going in my cozy album I will be adding a tag, a doily and leaves on this layout. I am trying to have a similar theme throughout this album. Plus it’s a fun way to tie all the layouts together.

img_0745I used a Shimelle small red doily, a smaller tag from the Shimelle ephemera pack. I used Silhouette cut leaves, that I used patterns from my stash of older papers. These are random patterns that I thought would work on a various of autumn and holiday themed layouts.

Instead of butterflies like on the sketch, I went with circles. One of the Shimelle papers had different sizes and colors, I picked out the ones I thought most fit my layout. I only had a small space to add them, but I like how they look like they are going under my photo. I only added my sequins so they were going over top of the circled rows. I tried to match the color of sequin to the color of the paper under neath it. I am using the new sequin mix, Cozy in this layout. It matches the blues and reds in the Shimelle collection. I mix in some Grey Feltie hearts to the line of sequins for some fun.

img_0746

I used leaves as my layering elements on the top and bottom of the photo. I also used a 4×6 photo instead of a square photo. I wanted to be able to see the whole street behind my mom and Mini Mouse. The streets of New York City as so marvelous especially this time of the year, it would be a same to cut that out. In my layers I added some Feltie hearts from the store. I like the texture element they add.

I had a pretty large title, when using such a small canvas such as this layout, was the hardest part of this layout. I decided to stray a little from the sketch to add the second half of the title down under the photo as well. Having both parts of the title start or finish with the embellishment cluster I feel really ties that altogether. That taxi is so cute down in the bottom cluster too, isn’t it?!

img_0744

I also added a journaling ticket under the title to fill that space. It also allowed me to add extra journaling that didn’t necessarily go with the main journaling section.

I hope you stick around all month and see all the sketches that are getting revealed for our Team Up with Let’s Get Sketchy!! There is going to be so much inspiration this month, just what we need for this busy time of the year!

Here is a final look at my layout.
