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.

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!

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?!

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.

June’s Special Guest is….

…..SpiegelMom herself!!  Hey everyone, Jody here today and I’m your guest designer this lovely month of June!  I thought it would be fun in preparation for the SpiegelMom Scraps 6 year anniversary month in July to hang out on the blog more this month so you can get to know me better.

So, here’s a little about me!  I’m Jody!  I’m a full time workin’ Mama with a super busy family life and some crazy kiddos!  I’ve been a crafter since I was a little girl and but really dove into this hobby in about 2003.  I went to my first Stampin Up! workshop with my BFF Jenn and was hooked.  From there I quickly fell in love with scrapbooking and never looked back.  I was an independent consultant for Memory Works from 2006 until they closed their doors in 2013.  I was on their Design Team and loved so many things about that company!  

In 2010 I started SpiegelMom Scraps and ran my business on Etsy for several years, connecting with so many wonderful crafters all over the world!  From there, I was one of the founders of Clique Kits and fell even more in love with this hobby.  My time were was an amazing journey.  Last February I stepped down as I had to move forward with many things in my family life and SMS. Now, things are busy as ever and I’m looking forward to this summer! 

My family will be moving this summer and I’m very excited to get into our new home!  I can’t wait to set up my craft studio, video filming & photography area and the kids craft area!!  Besides my kitchen, that area will be my favorite place in our home!  I’ll give you a tour after it’s done!  

Ok my friends, enough about me for today and on with my layout!  Today I’m sharing one of a few layouts I created with the Pink Paislee Fancy Free collection.  I used the pretty ombre teal background as my base and cut a bunch of those beautiful butterflies from The Cut Shoppe!  I’ve really been trying to stretch my papers lately and cut files make it so easy!!  This awesome file is from the Love Everlasting cut file collection, which you can find here. I think my favorite thing about the butterflies is how the cut file compliments the stained glass in my photo.

I used this lovely cut file to compliment the entire feel of the photo & layout. Besides that, I wanted to emphasize the word ‘you’ so I painted on some Dazzlerz texture paste in Coral Me Crazy and love how it turned out!

Here’s a close up of the glassine bag sequin pocket I created as a photo matte. I love how the glassine bag softens the sequins just enough ❤️
