Sequins and Shimmerz

 

Hey there, Laura here today with a Dazzlerz/sequins combo…

IMG_9636If 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.

IMG_9633For 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!

Scraplift Sunday with Crafty Meggy

Scraplift Sunday

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!

Sand Play Layout with Katty Miranda

scrapbook-sessions

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.

Ginger

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 HeartPeachy Keen, Mandarin Mai Tai,  Don’t Citron Me,  and a mix of Well Blue me Down and a Vibez in Jeni B Blue.

FullSizeRender-68 FullSizeRender-70

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.

Project Life – Snowy Mountain Weekend

Hi Everyone!

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.

#ProjectLife #SpiegelMomScraps #concordand9th #CreatewithSMS #scrapbooking #pocketscrapbooking #shimmerzpaints #snowyday #exclusivesequins @spiegelmom_scraps @wordsandpaperscraps @Shimmerzpaints

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.

#ProjectLife #SpiegelMomScraps #CreatewithSMS #scrapbooking #pocketscrapbooking #shimmerzpaints #snowyday #exclusivesequins @spiegelmom_scraps @wordsandpaperscraps @Shimmerzpaints

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!

#ProjectLife #SpiegelMomScraps #CreatewithSMS #scrapbooking #pocketscrapbooking #shimmerzpaints #snowyday #exclusivesequins @spiegelmom_scraps @wordsandpaperscraps @Shimmerzpaints

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!

Bloom Shaker Card with Katty Miranda

Hello everyone! Welcome back! Katty here to share a fun Shaker card. I began with a circular card floral cut file from the Silhouette Studio. I fell in love with this card the moment I saw it. I am drawn to anything floral.

I used White American Crafts Textured Cardstock to cut the file. I then used some of my Shimmerz Paints to color the flowers on the front of the card. I used Coloringz in Pink Stilettos, Peachy Keen and Mandarin Mai Tai. For the leaves I mixed a Coloringz in Don’t Citron Me and a Spritz in Bamboo Leaf.

FullSizeRender-65

I decided to add my sentiment behind the shaker area. I used a stamp set from Teresa Collins and Heat Embossed the word “Bloom” using white embossing powder. I then filled the shaker area with the Indian Summer Mix, which are beautiful orange sequins. I also aded a border around the card using the flatback green sequins from the A Day in the Woods Mix.

I love how this turned out. It just screams Spring.

I really loved this cut file and new I just had to used it on an artsy layout. I wanted to do something different with it besides backing it with patterned paper so I decided to pull out my Shimmerz Sprays.

cutfile1footer

I started out by spraying my Shimmerz Paints mists on the cut file. The colors I used were Well Blue Me Down Coloringz, Snow Way Man Vibez, No Yolking Coloringz, Bed of Roses Spritz, and Moody Mauve Coloringz.

cutfile2

In this little cluster I used some chipboard, wood veneer and a button from Paige Evans’ Take me away collection as well as the new 2 Cool 4 U sequin mix from the shop.

cutfile3

I made a little sequin pocket with a mini glassine bag.

cutfile4

I used the top part of the glassine bag in this top right corner for a 3rd cluster with some of the sequins.

I had so much fun layering papers from a few different collections behind the photo.

Today Layout with Katty Miranda

scrapbook-sessions

Hello friends! Katty here to share another 12×12 layout with you all. Today I am scrapbooking a photo of my boyfriend and I, I actually started out with another photo but as the layout progressed I decided to switch it out. The original photo was just too dark.

I began with White American Crafts Textured Cardstock as my background. I took one of the beautiful 8″ Chantilly White Lace Doilies and cut in into two parts, one a bit larger than the other. I added fun foam to the center to raise them up and give them some dimension  and placed them on opposite sides of my page, the smaller piece on the top left hand side and the bigger piece on the bottom right hand side. I used a purple twine and a mint green Jute and threaded it through the edges of the center of the doily.

  IMG_4677

I used some of my Shimmerz Paints mists in Peachy Keen, Heidi Ho Blue and Oh Say Can You Sea and with a brush added a few colors behind the doily. I also used the Peachy Keen and colored the center of the doily. I added a few splatters in the center area of the page.

IMG_4679 IMG_4678

I added two clusters of embellishments from my stash. I also added a few of the Love You Tons Felt Hearts in the clusters. I used an Amy Tangerine Kraft word thicker for my tittle. I scattered around the beautiful Sweet Pea Sequins  as well as the Morning Dew Drops.

IMG_4680

I placed my photo on top of the doily on the bottom right. I cut my picture in a circle shape to mimic the doily. I then used the Sweet Pea mix as a border around my picture.

I love how it turned out. This was really fun to make. There is a process video on my channel if you’d like to watch.
