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.

MR RAD

Hello again my scrappy friends!  Here with a layout featuring my grandson again and his many faces and acts that constantly keeps me in stitches…lol!  He is a character and in this photo, it shows some of what he loves to do.  I remember when my children were small and some of  things they did were not funny to me at that time.  Now that I have grandchildren, everything they do is hilarious!  I don’t understand it, but I think its funny.  That is why some people are more happy being grandparents than parents…lol.

Below is used a couple of products from the Spiegelmom Scraps shop.  Take a look!

I used some canvas tags that have been in my stash forever it seems like.  The paper is from October Afternoon, an older collection.

You can see the Cork Confetti from the Spiegelmom Shop up close.  Boy do I love how that came out.  Also the chip board is from Crate Paper Cool Kid collection.

The sequins are called Magical Day In The Park by the Spiegelmom Scraps and I have been using these like crazy on my layouts so much, I am going to need a replacement pack soon.

IMG_4490

Ahhhh these are so nice and I finally got them even!  Lol, I am know for not getting things even on my scrap pages..

For a last minute touch, I added these word strips in place of journaling not the layout from Tim Hotlz.  This saves me time and also the strips say everything I wanted to say in the journaling.

Scraplift Sunday!

Hello everyone! This is Megan and I am SO excited to share this weeks layout with you!! I decided to scrap the talented Missy Whidden this week. Here’s the layout she made:

feb11scraplift

Don’t you just absolutely love it?!!! Here’s my take on the layout:

feb11scraplift1footer

I am having so much fun scrapbooking girly layouts of me and my sisters when we were little girls! I have 3 boys so I don’t get to do a whole lot of girly scrapbooking.

feb11scraplift2

I used an AC white textured cardstock for the background and the Paige Evans Take Me Away collection for the patterned papers. The flowers I fussy cut from one of her papers. I used a silver doily, May arts ribbon/string, A mermaid’s tail and Hearts on fire sequin mixes from the shop. I also used Shimmerz Paints Vibez Princess spray mist on the background.

feb11scraplift3

I really had so much fun making up these 2 clusters. I wanted to have the journaling hidden so I glued a mini glassine bag down to the background and put a large manila tag in it with the date and our names.

feb11scraplift4

I really love this homemade cut file that Hannah gave to me! Thanks again, Hannah!!

feb11scraplift5

I used the cute little I Heart U felties in white as well.

feb11scraplift8

Here’s the little tag with the embellishments and date on it. I really love how that turned out!

Scraplift Sunday with Crafty Meggy

Scraplift Sunday

 

Hello my fellow SMS lovers!! I hope you’re having a great weekend! It’s always so sad when it comes to an end, but I really do love having my laid back Sundays.

I have another Scraplift for you today. I love going through my Scrapliftable board on pinterest, but this past week I was actually on pinterest for a different project and I found this layout:

feb5Scraplift

I really love the 3 patterned papers in the background and I thought doing something like that would look good with a cut file on top of it.

Hey Honey

This is the free cut file for the month of february. You can get it here in the cut file section of the blog or click the image.

feb5scraplift1footer

This is the layout I ended up making. I am super happy with how it turned out!!

feb5scraplift2

This year I have decided to really take my weight loss up a gear. It’s always a goal of mine to lose weight every year, but I usually give up after a couple weeks. I started going to the gym again a couple weeks into January and I took a few photos of the first workout. It was a slow one, but I am really proud of myself for sticking with it and going! These photos document before, during and after my workout.

feb5scraplift3

I really love the new I Cork U and Love U Tons felties hearts in the shop. I layered them here in this cluster on top of a white lace doily and also used the Strawberry Bubblegum sequin mix.

feb5scraplift4

I used an older Dear Lizzy thickers alpha and put a cute little heart sequin to dot each of the i’s.

feb5scraplift5

I put my journaling and another cluster in the bottom right hand corner.

feb5scraplift6

I used a couple yellow sequins from the Pocket Full of Posies mix, as well as a mini glassine bag, 2 large manila tags and raspberry May arts string.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!! You can watch my process video below on my YouTube channel. Make sure to use my code, Megan15, at checkout to receive 15% off your total order! Happy Scrapping!

So Loved – Early Valentine’s Post

Hey Friends!

You can probably tell by my layouts that I don’t have kids yet.. they generally only feature my husband and my dogs. I was inspired by this cozy picture of my husband and I to create a sweet layout just a few weeks early. Not to mention, there was a new sequin mix that I had fun plans for.

#cratepaper #spiegelmomscraps #sequins #shimmerzpaints #mixedmedia #stitching #americancrafts #createwithsms #feltie #vellum #scrapbooking #papercrafting #valentinesDIY

I knew I wanted to use strips of paper in combination with some paint streaks to create a vertical backdrop for my picture. I used a thick brush to paint the yellow and teal stripes. Once they dried, I chose the patterned paper + vellum I wanted to use too. I went with that bold paper from Dear Lizzy’s Saturday collection and paired it with some smaller patterned paper from my stash.

#cratepaper #spiegelmomscraps #sequins #shimmerzpaints #mixedmedia #stitching #americancrafts #createwithsms #feltie #vellum #scrapbooking #papercrafting #valentinesDIY

Once I had my paper in place I determined where I wanted my stitched sequin lines to go. This accent was my vision behind the entire layout! I used sequins from the shop (here + here). You can use this technique with any sequins as long as you adhere them down first. I think stitching over sequins creates a great finished look.

#cratepaper #spiegelmomscraps #sequins #shimmerzpaints #mixedmedia #stitching #americancrafts #createwithsms #feltie #vellum #scrapbooking #papercrafting #valentinesDIY

Once I had done this, I matted my picture on white and began playing around with my placement. I knew I wanted my picture to pop well and all of my embellishments to carry the vertical trend. Most embellishments are AC thickers

#dearlizzy #spiegelmomscraps #sequins #shimmerzpaints #mixedmedia #stitching #americancrafts #createwithsms #feltie #vellum #scrapbooking #papercrafting #valentinesDIY

I combined some alphas with “loved” to create my title and added a few white heart felties. I wanted to balance out the bright colors of the background with something more subtle.

I really love how this project turned out! I’m so happy with my decision to use a 9 x 12 project life album so 12 x 12 papers can easily be cut down and used for layouts like these. I hope you’ll try stitching some sequins. Thanks for stopping by!

P.S. You don’t want to miss our HUGE product swap blog hop tomorrow!

OUR HISTORY

Hello!  Well I am back again with a layout featuring one of my trips to the museum and I just had to do this photo. This is a 8 X 10 photo of one of the main trains that was on exhibit, which is a huge part of California history.  This particular train was a main transport in lumber, food, and other things needed to build California.  I was amazed at how big this train was and what materials they built it with, real iron!  The iron used to build this train was pure, which made for a seriously heavy train.

IMG_4359

I used some cork circles from my stash and some Gold Stardust sequins from the Spiegelmom Scraps shop.  Here a closer look!

IMG_4361

I just love how this came together!  I put some of the sequins by the title, which is perfect and the letters are from Freckled Fawn embellishment kit.

IMG_4362

Here is a closure look at a different angle.

IMG_4364

The papers I used on this layout are from Simple Stories and the enamel dots are from My Mind’s Eye.

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.

There is a video on my channel if you’d like to watch.

Thanks so much for stopping by! XOXO -Katty
