Strawberry Bubblegum

13606918_10210616253069152_7037369444422097770_n

I openly admit I don’t like pink.  I often get sequin mixes with pink in nonetheless, and usually struggle to use them to their best.  I fell in love with the greens in Strawberry Bubblegum and was determined to use the whole mix rather than just picking out the greens!

I started out with my watercolour palette and painted a branch.  I used a Daniel Smith colour called Burnt Tigers Eye Genuine which granulates and gives a great bark effect.

I then set about adding my leaves and blossom.  Initially, I tried matte medium to adhere the sequins but quickly reverted to my old favourite of glossy accents.

I fussy cut a few birds from a Dear Lizzy paper and perched them on my branch.

I then set about making a paper frame for my (very unflattering) photo.  I wanted it to look like a framed photo that you would hang on a wall so I found some wood grain paper and mitred the edges.  I then ‘hung’ my photo from the branch.

You have to record the cute moments even if the photo shows off your extra chins!  Here Herbie Budgie was all snuggled up under my chin keeping warm.

Here is the process video if you are interested:

Earthy Tones & No Title (Oops!)

Good morning, y’all!

I absolutely love sharing my creations online – what a blessing to have such a supportive community of crafters who share in our creative accomplishments! Thank you to everyone who supports myself, my fellow DT members, and SpiegelMom Scraps!

Recently, I’ve run across a little problem. I honestly can’t keep up with the amount of gorgeous product releases from the shop. I truly want to incorporate everything and I just can’t. But I’ll keep trying – and Saturday we’ll have even more products available to us. So stay tuned for that!#spiegelmomscraps #earthy #moodboard #scrapbooking #papercrafting #shimmerzpaints #sequins #exclusivesequins #pinkpaislee #paigetaylorevans @spiegelmom_scraps @paigetaylorevans @pinkpaislee @shimmerzpaintsThis layout came together inspired by the coffee shop where this picture was taken, in downtown Greenville, SC. I got to spend the day with some friends who I hadn’t spent much time lately – so good! Anyway, I was so excited with how the layout came together that I completely forgot to add a title. And didn’t notice until I was saving edited images from Lightroom onto my computer – I realized there was no name to name a folder. Oops!

To begin, I spritzed some Shimmerz Vibez onto a plain olive background. I stamped a few triangles also and once that dried, I began layering my scraps. I included a frame, vellum, and Pink Paislee C’est La Vie ephemera from my stash. I glued and stitched and added my picture matted on white cardstock. #spiegelmomscraps #earthy #moodboard #scrapbooking #papercrafting #shimmerzpaints #sequins #exclusivesequins #pinkpaislee #paigetaylorevans @spiegelmom_scraps @paigetaylorevans @pinkpaislee @shimmerzpaintsOnce I had my layering the way I wanted, I tucked a silver foil doily underneath my picture to finish it off.#spiegelmomscraps #earthy #moodboard #scrapbooking #papercrafting #shimmerzpaints #sequins #exclusivesequins #pinkpaislee #paigetaylorevans @spiegelmom_scraps @paigetaylorevans @pinkpaislee @shimmerzpaintsI stitched a “3” over top of it and added some wood veneer pieces for some additional texture. One of my favorite things to do with sequins is to individually stitch them onto my projects. I love the effect this has when I have the patience to do this! The exclusive sequin mix Evergreen Bough coordinates perfectly with my page! #spiegelmomscraps #earthy #moodboard #scrapbooking #papercrafting #shimmerzpaints #sequins #exclusivesequins #pinkpaislee #paigetaylorevans @spiegelmom_scraps @paigetaylorevans @pinkpaislee @shimmerzpaintsI finished off my project with a few stitched scraps at the top. Sometimes I’m happiest with my projects when I don’t use perfectly matched pieces from collections. This was one of those.

Thanks again for reading! Don’t forget about all the exclusive releases this coming Saturday.

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!

You can see my process video here on YouTube or click below:

What about Wednesday: Sequin Pocket Love!

what about wednesday blog header

Hello again and happy Hump Day!! I hope your week is going great so far! This is Megan and I am excited to be back again today with you to share another layout. For this one I wanted to make a layout with a sequin pocket in a different way that I haven’t tried yet. I’ve used glassine bags and I’ve also used foam and a sheet of plastic. Let’s jump right into my layout!!

19oct1withfooter

I had so much fun making this layout!! I wanted to use a few different sequin mixes for the little tag pocket. I went with some of the new fall mixes, Autumn Joy and Falling Leaves. I also used A Day in the Woods. These 3 sequin mixes are so fun to use with fall photos!!

19oct2

The sequin pocket was so easy to make! I grabbed one of the tags from the shop and some vellum I had on hand. I placed the sequins I wanted on the tag, put glue on all 4 sides of the vellum and then placed it on top of the tag. For a better idea, you can watch my process video below. I show you how I make it in the video.

19oct3

I think this little cluster is my favorite on this layout, and it might be because of that adorable little clock!! I need to do research on what day these photos were taken and then I will stamp it on the label in this cluster.

19oct4

I really love the cute cork stars you can find in the shop! They put the finishing touches on this smaller cluster in the top right corner.

19oct5

Here’s another view of this cluster of labels and fun ephemera. You can also see the Shimmerz Texturez I used in Gold Mine on the edge of the layout, right next to the photo mat.

I also made a process video to go along with this layout. You can find it on my YouTube channel or below:

Now and Then with Laura

13876613_10210616252669142_2391417144707825514_n

Hi Folks, Laura here.  For this post I am taking on fellow Sparkler Felicia’s September challenge.  Felicia set a really fun challenge – something old and something new – with the added twist of an old photo and a new photo, too.  Now you understand the title NOW AND THEN, huh?

img_8025

I used the new heart felties and September’s cut file freebie as my new elements.  And all the patterned papers are from my old box of papers.  At least one company no longer exists!

img_8023

The photos are of my brother with my Dad in 1985 and my brother with his son this year.  I have to say, I would never have put these photos together if it hadn’t been for the challenge.  I adore how it has turned out so think I need to do some more challenges!  Link me up to your favourites please?

I super-sized the scribbly rings cut file and backed each opening with the patterned papers pulled from my stash.

img_8021

I love how it looks.  I cut a bunch of the smaller files too, but I think I need to cut another big one – I like it too much to use it only once!

#spiegelmomscraps #amytangerine #shimelle #americancrafts #silhouettecameo #smscutfiles #sequins #enameldots @spiegelmomscraps @amytangerine @shimelle @americancrafts @silhouetteamerica

I sprinkled a few sequins and enamel dots around the page.  I wanted to match the red of the alphas and the red in the photos.  I have about one thousand enamel dots but none that matched… then I remembered Shimelle had a pack of holly berries and leaves in her Christmas collection…  I had a rummage through my Christmas stash and was so happy to find they were a perfect match!

img_8026

I am crushing on navy at the moment.  I know the newer collections have some navy in, and these navy hearts are new – I hope we see much more in the coming months.

You can watch me muddle my way through making the layout, and having a fall out with my budgie, in the process video.

Thanks for stopping by!

Cherish by Evi

IMG_287822222

Our gorgeous mood board has lovely pinks and blues and I was heavily inspired by it for this layout.  I first cut out butterflies with  my Cameo and arranged them to be colored.  I used half with pink tones from Shimmerz paints and the other half with light blues.

IMG_2887

Once the butterflies were dried I used clear glue to adhere Wedding Bells sequins on the blue ones and  Pinky Pie Pinks on the pink butterflies.  I set them aside and let them dry as well.

IMG_2892

I then cut a larger die cut for the background from the Silhouette design store.  It is a detailed floral pattern.  I was going to use it has a stencil with some Dazzlers but I decided to just leave it as it and have white on white for the background.

IMG_2882

I am scrapping a photo I took at my Aunt’s vow renewal recently.  I layered the photo with tracing paper and dollies from the SpiegelMom Shop.  My title “cherish” is from the Pink Paislee Fancy Free collection in chunky silver glitter.  I held back on doing any splatters for this layout, as the simplicity sang to me.  If you’d like a discount on your purchase at the SpiegelMom Scraps shop use Evi15 for a discount.
