Shaker Title Page

Good morning!

If you’re reading this then you’ve made it to Wednesday – halfway through the week following a holiday weekend, which is always a struggle for me.

I’ve been having fun lately experimenting with different shaker pockets. I love the layering capabilities! Today I’m sharing a shaker pocket title page made with my trusty fuse tool. Projects like this are much easier if you have a heat proof mat with measurements – so you can get your fusing centered.

I love adding different sized page protectors in Project Life to make it a little more eclectic. I began by trimming my page protector to a 6×12 size. Working first on the rectangular inside pocket holding the “XOXO” I fused 3 sides, added the thicker, and fused the top. The fact that the title I chose was adhesive helped hold it in place. But if you’re going for a more whimsical look you could just add any cut file (or any ephemera for that matter!) I then added the sequins to the page protector. I chose to use Strawberry Bubblegum – a perfect mix for spring! I think lighter sequins look best when layered over a layout – you could also try these or these. Lastly, I used my mini stapler to attach a white heart feltie and my shaker page was complete! SO easy.

I wanted to keep the layout underneath fairly simple so both would be highlighted and not too busy. I used papers from Felicity Jane Studio and coordinating ephemera. I used a few embellishments from my stash including a white lace doily  and cork heart from the shop.

Notice that little bit of shine underneath my photo? You can brush on some Shimmerz  Paste-eez like this one for a little bit of bling.

I love putting my finished spreads in my album to admire how they turned out! I hope you’re inspired to do a little experimenting with shaker pockets

Magical – A Whimsical Layout

Hello and Welcome! This is my attempt at a “Make it Yours” Monday. I’m not so great at the themes. But this project just so happens to fit perfectly because I scraplifted a combination of an old project by me, here + some inspiration by Suse Fish.

#SpiegelmomScraps #shimmerz #exclusivesequins #cratepaper #maggieholmes #cratepapergather #pinkfreshstudio #createwithsms #vellum #golddetails #stitching @wordsandpaperscraps @shimmerzpaints @pinkfreshstudio @cratepaper #scrapbooking #papercrafting

I started with a white cardstock background, used washi tape as a vertical barrier, and painted thick horizontal stripes using “In the Navy” Acri-Tonez by Shimmerz from the shop. In case you’re in need of a technique for these magical paints – here you go. Make a simple striped background and you’ll be very happy with the results 😉

I chose to use gold polka-dot patterned vellum over the non-stripe side of the cardstock. I love the shine it adds. I used Indigo Hills by Pinkfresh Studio patterned paper to cover the seam between the paint and the vellum.

On this layout I used embellishments from that same Pinkfresh Studio collection, Crate Paper Gather, and flair from Accent Scrapbooking.

All of these products pair so well with the Pandora’s Ombre sequin mix. But I also debated on using this one too.

So, my challenge to you: Pick an Acri-Tonez and paint a bold background. Happy crafting!

Scraplift Sunday with a Twist

Hello scrappy friends!! This is Megan and I have a couple fun cards to share with you today. I’m not a huge card maker, but sometimes I’ll make a few at a time, so I thought it would be fun to pull out an oldish Close to my Heart catalog and find a couple cards I liked.

Here’s a photo of the one I decided to lift:

and then I got the idea to emboss my base from this one:

 

Here are my cute cards that I made with the inspiration from CTMH. I love them both!

I know that Father’s Day is far away, but I thought this card was super cute and my husband would like it so that’s why I went with this stamp. For the base of both cards I used the American Crafts Textured Cardstock.

I used these I Cork U hearts from the shop along with the Amy’s Sprinkles sequin mix.

You can also find the Large Shipping Tag in the shop as well as the new Shimmerz Paints Acritonez, I used Jiven Jade.

For this second card I decided I wanted to make it totally different than the inspiration from the CTMH catalog. I loved the idea of using the embossing folder. This is a cloud one I bought from Stampin’ Up. I wanted to paint the embossed card and created kind of a resist image, but the Acritones I used, dried too fast. But, I really love how it turned out!

I really love these cute Cloudy Days felites!! I think they’re one of my favorite products in the shop!!

I also used the Plum Dreamsicle sequin mix and a Close to my Heart stamp.

I hope you enjoyed seeing these cute cards!! I have a process videos that I will post below.

Thanks so much for stopping by!! I hope you have a great Sunday!!

Scraplift Sunday with Crafty Meggy

Hello fellow SMS fans!! I hope you’re having a wonderful Sunday! I am so excited about this layout so I will just jump right in!!

I saw a recent layout by Victoria Marie on youtube and knew immediately that I just HAD to scraplift it! Don’t you just love all the inspiration we have these days between all the different social media we are a part of?!!!

Here is the layout that Victoria made:

Isn’t it just GORGEOUS?!!! I just love the simplicity of it! My layout didn’t turn out quite so simple, but I am in love with it!!

I decided to print off this photo of my newest nephew and me that my sister took last week when they came to visit. That is the thing I love about having my Canon Selphy, I can print out photos and use them immediately.

I made 3 clusters on this layout. Each one of them has Love you Tons Felties, Wolf Gery Heart Felties, Amy’s Sprinkles and Gun Metal Grey sequin mixes (Both of these mixes are sold out and being retired so they’re no longer available. Sorry about that!! BUT, you can find the other amazing sequin mixes here!)

I had a hard time finding a font in the right color that worked with the layout. In the end I went with this one and I love it!!

I used a Silver Foil Holiday Doily in a couple places on the layout. I really love how the silver stands out again the white textured American Crafts cardstock and that black polka dot paper.

And lawst but not least, I used the good old packaging technique on the background with a few Shimmerz paints, Well Blue Me Down Colorings, Before Dawn Vibez and No Yolking Coloringz.

Here’s my process video you can watch if you’d like a closer look at how I made the layout:

Forever

Hey there!  It’s Laura Whitaker back with you today, sharing my final page and process video as a guest designer here at SpiegelMom Scraps!

Once again I am working with Amy Tangerine patterned papers, Oh how I wanted to play with those pink sequins and these papers let me make them pop! In fact, the cut apart sheet had a fun Polaroid frame printed onto part of it and it inspired me to trim it out and create a fun sequin pocket to balance out my offset photo.

 

I began my page by adding texture paste, though a mask, to my background.

 

I did not use any dimension in the sequin pocket at all, and relied on mostly stitching to hold it together.  I love the way it looks! And how pretty are those tiny flower sequins!?

 

Do you remember back on the first of the month, the SpiegelMom Scraps team was hopping with Creative Embellishments?  Well, I still had this gorgeous piece of chipboard left from the products that I was given and I was dying to use it.  It inspired the theme for this page!  I embossed it with this really pretty, but old embossing powder and I love the way it turned out! I trimmed the piece down a bit to better suit my layout, which is a plus because that means I still have a bit left!

 

I cut a pretty mint tag to fit inside one of the SpiegelMom Scraps tiny glassine bags that I got. I also got this Amy Tangerine frame from the SpiegelMom Scraps shop, which I backed with a bit of paper to help the laser cut element pop out a bit more.

 

 

I used some SpiegelMom Scraps cork embellishments to anchor my trio of embellishment clusters I finished off my page with some light blue mist splatters, journalling and a sprinkling of sequins around my layout.

You can watch my process video here on my You-Tube channel here.

12 x 12 Spring theme scrapbook layout #spiegelmomscraps #shimmerz #corkclouds #mixedmedia #shimelle #scrapbooking #papercrafting #sequins @shimmerzpaints @wordsandpaperscraps @spiegelmom_scraps

Wish – A Spring Layout

Happy Spring!

I don’t know about where you live but these last two days have felt like spring – we’ve had such a mild winter I think I’ve been in the spring mentality for a while now.

12 x 12 Spring theme scrapbook layout #spiegelmomscraps #shimmerz #corkclouds #mixedmedia #shimelle #scrapbooking #papercrafting #sequins @shimmerzpaints @wordsandpaperscraps @spiegelmom_scraps

When it comes to scrapping, I’ve really been working to rediscover freedom in what pictures I use. So far, I’ve done almost too well keeping up with Project Life – I sorta don’t have much to scrap that is super current. So, to make sure I’m still having fun and not letting creating become too regimented, I’m making a point to scrap whatever just to play!

This is one of those projects. This picture was taken on a trip I led last summer to Colorado. It’s so fun! I had lots of products I wanted to use with it.

12 x 12 Spring theme scrapbook layout #spiegelmomscraps #shimmerz #corkclouds #mixedmedia #shimelle #scrapbooking #papercrafting #sequins @shimmerzpaints @wordsandpaperscraps @spiegelmom_scraps

The background is composed of lots of Shimmerz splatters – with yellows and blues (You could also use this one + this one) along with stitched sequins. The stitched sequins are the one element I really had envisioned and wanted to build from. My sequin mix of choice for this project is Rockin‘ Pink Ombre. I really really love monochromatic sequin mixes.

I also painted some Corky Cumulus clouds white and stitched them onto my page too.

I wanted the paper layers I chose to be a nice complement to the embellishments without being too distracting – I used several products from the Shimelle “Little by Little” collection along with a few Crate Paper things. I also had a “Wish” Thicker in my stash that went perfectly with this layout.

I tied in the black with some black stamping and then I was done! I really love how light and airy this project feels – perfect for spring.

Thanks for stopping by!

Lucky

Hey there!  It’s Laura Whitaker with you and I am super excited to be guesting here this month! Today I am sharing a layout that features a photo of my youngest son  and documents how he was born on St. Patrick’s day.  But I wanted to do it without doing an actual birthday page.

 

So I created a shamrock background cut file and pulled in some patterned papers with softer rainbow colours as well as some SpiegelMom Scraps Pandora’s Ombre sequins, Green Acres sequins, What’s Up Buttercup sequins which coordinate perfectly with my paper choices.

 

As a first step, I added some green distress ink through a wood grain stencil and some white texture paste through the same stencil to add a bit of interest to my base paper, prior to layering on the cut file.

 

Parts of the cut file were backed with patterned papers and some were backed with clear plastic so that I could insert sequins behind them.  On the layout I created for the March SpiegelMom Scraps blog hop, I shared how to make sequin shaker elements a design feature on a background.  For this page I wanted to do something similar but different, this page does not need dimensional adhesive to achieve the look.  You can see how to recreate this look by watching my process video, on my You-Tube channel.

 

I tucked this little wood veneer frame behind my photo making it another layer.  As an after thought I stitched words into it and I am so glad I did I love the look!  The frame is from the SpiegelMom Scraps shop.

 

I have had this large foam Thicker word in my stash for quite some time now, I am so glad that I was finally able to use it as it is perfect for this page!

I used some of the SpiegelMom Scraps “I Cork U” Hearts to create a shamrock that I layered over my title.  I love the way it looks and that I was able to use my goodies in a variety of ways!

 

I also used large cork hearts to create a larger shamrock, onto which I have layered a flair.

 

My third embellishment cluster also uses cork (I like the repetition) but this time in the form of a cloud shape. The cloud is from the SpiegelMom Scraps shop as well and is called “Corky Cumulus”.  A die cut sun, a fun flair and some more sequins round out the cluster nicely.  As a last step I added in some black rub ons (super old from my stash) I think they balance the black title out nicely.

As I mentioned, I have a process video for this layout,  you can watch it on my You-Tube channel here.

Supply List:  SpiegelMom Scraps  I cork U hearts, corky cumulus, white doily, glassine bag; Pandora’s Ombre sequins, Green Acres sequins, What’s Up Buttercup sequins; Amy Tangerine wood frame from the SpiegelMom Scraps shop; Accent Scrapbooking flair; Amy Tangerine patterned paper;  American Crafts vellum and cardstock;  Amy Tangerine “today” word sticker; Imaginisce rub-ons; Sharpie[; Ranger Texture Paste; Tim Holtz mask: Tim Holtz distress ink (peeled paint); Tim Holtz stencil;  Tattered Angels mist (splash); Smooch Spritz mist (yellow); Mr. Huey’s mist (taxi); misc. ticket.
