Interactive What??

Hello scrappers, Ali here! I am super excited about the project I am sharing today…for a few reasons! One. I got my Fuse out again, that always makes me happy! Two, it is inspired by one of my faves-Miranda Lambert! Three, it is also inspired by papercrafting…not specifically scrapbooking. I love watching videos of people who make exploding boxes, pop up cards, sliding thingys (technical term), and anything interactive. I love making boxes and recently made a pop up card. But I have wanted to incorporate interactive elements on my scrapbook layouts as well. I always decide not to because of the pesky page protectors! But alas, I found a way around that!

Before we get to the interactive part let’s talk sequins…I love love love the new releases, and especially Painted Gardens. My favorite color is purple, and I know a lot of scrappy friends hate purple, but it is my JAM! I also used a combination of Sparkle Power and What’s Up Buttercup in my shaker/journaling. After I completed my layout I knew I wanted to add a LOT of journaling, but I didn’t really have room. So I made a little shaker cover that will flip open to reveal my journaling! So, this is a photo of me as a little kid on a tricycle, with heart shaped glasses, and I just know I am too cool. The sunglasses are pink…which immediately made me think of the Miranda Lambert song, Pink Sunglasses. When I saw this photo, I knew I had to scrap about my pink sunglasses…and not just in the literal sense. The song (for those of you who don’t stalk Miranda Lambert on Spotify) is about “pink sunglasses” or as we usually refer to them, rose colored glasses. I still have a habit of putting on my rose colored glasses and seeing the world as a big sparkle-tastic place to be. It helps me cope. But as a kid, I think we all see the good in things. My journaling reflects how I felt about growing up in this particular neighborhood vs. what I know now. Basically, how my pink sunglasses shaped my view of my childhood.

Here comes the fun part. Under the photo is actually a double slider. The twine at the top, which will stick out of my page protector when I move it to an album (in about 6 months…) is accessible to pull the sliders out and reveal the song lyrics…

I really love how this turned out. It is so much fun to make and it’s so much fun to interact with!

I also made a little stop motion video to show you how the sliders work!

Have you ever created an interactive layout? I would love to see it!

Don’t forget to add the sequins!

 

Scrapbooking with Karla – Scraplifting Jen Schow!

Hello friends, and happy Thursday! Karla here today, and this week we are having a wonderful time scraplifting the most amazing Jen Schow! I really liked this layout below that she created, and thought it would be a nice way to use some of the 3×4 photos that I usually print out with the Project Life App, as well as using up some of the pretty journaling cards I have in my stash!

@craftyjenschow

Layout by Jen Schow

I decided to start off with some older CTMH papers from my stash and the coordinating stickers. The colours looked great with my photos and since they had an outdoorsy theme it went well. I also had some Project Life cards that I thought would go well with the papers and photos and then grabbed the Sweet Pea, Deck The Halls, Orange Blossom and Ferris Wheel sequin mixes.

I added some Stickles and Glossy Accents to highlight different areas of the stickers and Tim Holtz botanical ephemera. The orange blossom sequin mix had the perfect tiny flowers to add detail to the mushroom sticker, and I love how the larger flower from the mix has a bit of iridescence to it and coordinated perfectly!

Just by adding some sequins to the journaling card and paper flower I was able to coordinate both elements, and add that little bit of something extra special to my layout!

I really liked how the reds in the Deck The Halls went with the coral colour in the stickers and flair badge, and I used the Abandoned Coral Distress Ink to stamp some little triangular images on the background. I even added a little of the Natural Burlap String on the tiny sticker tag.

Mixed Media With Karla – Keepin’ It Real Scraplift

Hi friends! Karla here today with a fun Mixed Media layout! Our theme this week is to scraplift the infamous Missy Whidden! She is so amazingly talented – I was a little intimidated to even attempt this!!

Here’s a look at Missy’s awesome scrapbook layout. You can check it out on Instagram HERE or watch her YouTube process video HERE.

I loved the mixed media circles she layered on, so I decided to try my Distress Paints using the same technique she showed in her video with the Shimmerz Paste-eez (which you can find in the SpiegelMom Scraps Store!!) It was fun to try a few new techniques and step outside my comfort zone! I think that’s important for everyone to do once in a while. I even decided to post a crazy face photo, and this Keepin’ It Real sticker from the Pink Paislee Take Me Away collection was the perfect title 😉 and the bright sequins from the Jaded HeartsNeon Summer and Gotta Love Emoji’s mixes were just the right pop!

I used some Dylusions mists on my background, spraying on a piece of acetate and smooshing it onto my background in blue, green and purple colours. It was great to get them out of the drawer! Since my photos were very neutral I felt like it was the perfect opportunity to use lots of background colours.

I used some Shimelle Starshine stickers and added a bit of thread under my handcut paint blobs. After I first layered on the thread, I realized I had it in too much of a perfect circle, lol, so I had to mess it up a bit!

I layered my photos on some Hazel & Ruby printed tissue paper from my stash and then on top of some plain green tissue paper. I love the bit of texture that gives, and I popped up a few of the paint dabs to give some dimension.

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!

IMG_9504

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.

IMG_9501

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.

IMG_9503

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

IMG_9502

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.

IMG_9500

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:
