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.
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.
So, my challenge to you: Pick an Acri-Tonez and paint a bold background. Happy crafting!
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.
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.
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!!
Hey there, Laura here today with a Dazzlerz/sequins combo…
If you are not a fan of sticking sequins on individually I highly recommend this technique! Spread a layer of Dazzlerz (or Pasteez – note to self: must do this with Pasteez soon!) and while it is still wet sprinkle on some sequins. You can choose to gently push them in with your fingertips, but I’ve found these little stars don’t need any encouragement to stick.
I made a photo collage in PicMonkey of the same photo repeated three times, two in black and white and one in colour. Under the black and white photos I added some black acrylic ink and some black sugar paper torn from a sketchbook. Under the coloured photo I added some vellum and Red-iculous Dazzlerz and Gold Stardust.
For a few extra details, I added a couple of labels and short title. Again I kept the colour to one side and black and white on the other. I also added a few gold stardust sequins to the black and white side because I just can’t help myself when it comes to sequins!!
Thanks for stopping by!
Hello again my SMS friends! I am back on this wonderful Sunday with another Scraplift layout to share with you.
I just want to say I really love scraplifting layouts!! I often try to change the layout and make it my own and with this one I definitely made sure to do that! This is the layout I found on pinterest:
Isn’t it just gorgeous?!! I absolutely fell in love with all the mixed media in the background! She even has a companion layout called ‘SHE’. Make sure to go on over to the Cocoa Vanilla Studio blog to check it out! I was just blown away.
This is my layout. I am really happy with how it turned out!! I used the American Crafts white textured cardstock for the background with some gesso. To get the background mist I sprayed in 4 spots and added water. I used Heidi Ho Blue, No Yolking and Before Dawn.
I used the 2 Cool 4 U sequin mix from the shop as well as the Clique Kits December 2016 embellishment pack and flair badge. I decided that this was going to be the title for my layout.
I made a little cluster in the bottom left hand corner with the journaling. This spot worked out perfect!
Here’s another view of this title cluster. I really had a lot of fun with this layout!
I hope that you enjoy looking at this layout! You can watch the process video below or here on my YouTube channel:

Hello friends! Welcome back! Sadly, this will be my last post. I have loved being a member of this amazing team and I will continue to use the amazing Spiegelmom Scraps products. Today I am sharing a 12×12 layout. I am using one of this months free cut files. I decided to shrink it down and printed it 5 times.
This cut file reminds me of seashells so it was perfect for a beach photo. I chose to use a photo of my youngest son at the beach when he was younger. I arranged the 5 cut files on a White American Crafts Cardstock and I glued some of them together to create a fun design. I used a few of my Shimmerz Paints Mist to color the cut files. I created a rainbow of colors. I used Coloringz in My Bleeding Heart, Peachy Keen, Mandarin Mai Tai, Don’t Citron Me, and a mix of Well Blue me Down and a Vibez in Jeni B Blue.
I decided to embellish using stickers from the Carta Bella Beach Day Collection and the beautiful Believe in You Sequin Mix. I also added some tangled thread in coordinating colors.
This was a lot of fun to create. I love this cut file.
There is also a process video on my channel if you’d like to watch.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! XOXO -Katty
Rachel here sharing my first Project Life post on this blog. This year, I decided to scrapbook in a 9×12 album incorporating both pocket pages and traditional layouts – I could never give those up completely! I talk more about my plans in this post on my blog.
So many gorgeous products were just recently released.. Did you pick up a lot? If so, this is a great post for some inspiration! I’m using lots of new products from the shop.
I wanted to use lots of blues to bring out the snowy scenery. I actually ended up using mostly old paper scraps to fill the squares + some silver starry vellum. I was so excited to order the new Shimmerz Acri Tonez – I love the matte look of the finished paint. In the Navy, found here, did not disappoint! And I love the layered look of that same color word on top of it. Oh and I recently discovered how handy an alpha stamp set can be for PL – Love the one I’m using lately by Concord & 9th.
When it comes to sequins, I really love muted colors. Sometimes I’ll add white to mellow out some mixes – I’m just not so great at venturing out with bright colors. I was instantly drawn to My Clementine, a gorgeous new mix from the shop with just the perfect amount of color.
Once I had all of my paper scraps and pictures placed, I added some exclusive felties from the shop, stitching on a white snowflake and adhering a navy heart. I just love how well so many of the products in the shop are coordinating!
I finished off my layout by adding a cork heart painted white to the bottom center square – I felt like it needed a little something to balance out my spread.
Anyone else working with 9 x 12 this year?
Thanks for stopping by!
