I decided to create a two page Project Life style spread for you and I really love how it turned out.   I like to keep my PL spreads simple, with splashes of embellishments and sparkle.  This way, the focus stays on my photos.  This summer my husband and I took our three youngest daughters on a fun little photo shoot to our land where we’re currently building our home and around the town where we live.  I incorporated a few of my favorite products and created fun sequin pockets along the 2×12″ section of the the WRMK pocket page protectors.  I wasn’t sure how I was going to use it, but thought sequins was perfect along with using my Fuse Tool!

See those little foiled hearts in the sequin pockets?  Those were foiled using the Heidi Swapp MINC Mini.  The starter kit comes with several toner sheets that you can die cut or use with your paper punches.  Such an awesome tool to have your scrappy arsenal!! I also created a fun little sequin shaker using a small glassine bag, Hearts on Fire sequins and some lovely black glitter Thickers from Pink Fresh Studio.

Another one of my favorite products are the felt die cuts. Birds of a Feather felt die cuts are such beauties and come in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes. As you can see, I added the white Felt-Fetti Hearts right onto my photos as simple accents.  I just used tacky glue to adhere them.

Hello There

It has been a little while since I have posted a SpiegelMom Scraps project but I have actually been creating projects just quite remiss at putting them on my blog.  

Today I have a cute “Hello” card to share.  I love the colours on this card and all the gorgeous shimmer from the mists and sequins 🙂

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @studiocalico @mayartsribbon, #sequin #ink #cork #heart #gold #doily

I started with a plain white card base as I adore the way the sequins shine on the white.  I cut a doily in half and sprayed with Heidi Swapp Color Shine sprays in blush, gold and mint green and dried between each colour with my heat gun to prevent muddiness.  I also sprayed a cork heart with gold and inked the edges.   I glued the doily down first then added my stamped sentiment and heart.  I then scattered my sequins on the card and adhered them where they fell.   Lastly I added the pink May Arts Burlap String and tied in a bow and fastened with a cute peg.

 

I really like how cute but simple this card is and is also pretty flat so it can go in a regular envelope.

Be sure to join me next week for another great SpiegelMom project – a blinged out thank you card.
