Hello! Felicia here with a pretty cool layout featuring my grandson when he was about 2 years old in the snow for the first time. He had a ball and he wanted to stay out there for hours, but it was really cold in South Lake Tahoe around January. We had bought him one of those snow ball makers to make snow balls with. When I was a child growing up on the east coast, we had to make our own snow balls and it was fun.
In this layout I am using some texture paste and some sequins from the Spiegelmom Scraps shop called Silver Stardust.
I just love how the Stardust sequins look on this layout! I even put one in the center of the snow flake die cut.
Here is another close up look at the Stardust sequins along next to the title.
I also used a flair badge from Cuts2luv, which you must check out as well.
Here are more sequins at the spread out around by the puffy stars from the Snow and Cocoa collection.
Thank you so much for stopping by and be sure to check out the Spiegelmom Shop for more goodies and some new goodies as well. The shop is now loaded so don’t forget to use code Felicia15 to get your 15% discount.

Recently, I’ve run across a little problem. I honestly can’t keep up with the amount of gorgeous product releases from the shop. I truly want to incorporate everything and I just can’t. But I’ll keep trying – and Saturday we’ll have even more products available to us. So stay tuned for that!This layout came together inspired by the coffee shop where this picture was taken, in downtown Greenville, SC. I got to spend the day with some friends who I hadn’t spent much time lately – so good! Anyway, I was so excited with how the layout came together that I completely forgot to add a title. And didn’t notice until I was saving edited images from Lightroom onto my computer – I realized there was no name to name a folder. Oops!
To begin, I spritzed some Shimmerz Vibez onto a plain olive background. I stamped a few triangles also and once that dried, I began layering my scraps. I included a frame, vellum, and Pink Paislee C’est La Vie ephemera from my stash. I glued and stitched and added my picture matted on white cardstock. Once I had my layering the way I wanted, I tucked a silver foil doily underneath my picture to finish it off.I stitched a “3” over top of it and added some wood veneer pieces for some additional texture. One of my favorite things to do with sequins is to individually stitch them onto my projects. I love the effect this has when I have the patience to do this! The exclusive sequin mixEvergreen Bough coordinates perfectly with my page! I finished off my project with a few stitched scraps at the top. Sometimes I’m happiest with my projects when I don’t use perfectly matched pieces from collections. This was one of those.
Thanks again for reading! Don’t forget about all the exclusive releases this coming Saturday.
I hope your holiday spirit has been extended through this weekend for NYE! I’m almost entirely done with my December Daily album.. just in time for my last-day-of-December goal.Sometimes I get so excited when the perfect photo opportunity arises, I forget to shoot in portrait and therefore have to get creative when I want to share landscape oriented pictures. I really love to create layouts in non-traditional sizes, and I’m excited to incorporate those together with traditional pocket pages in my Project Life album. Meanwhile, here’s an adorable picture of my incredibly difficult to photograph dog on a mixed media layout. I splattered my background with black acrylic paint and Shimmerz Dazzlers in I Lilac You. Once that dried, I layered some Pink Paislee Yuletide ephemera underneath my photo and added some sequins from the shop for some shine. I wanted to keep my pages consistent so I stitched the “18” from the themed cards for my album across the top. I inked a sentiment across the bottom, added some silver sequin stars, and then I was finished! So quick and easy. I love the beginning of a new year! I’m excited for where it takes me.
What are you most looking forward to in the coming year?
These days leading up to Christmas are my very favorite. I love when things slow down and we can really focus on the best details of the season. I’ve really enjoyed documenting this month! Today I’m sharing a sparkly insert I made for my album. Lots of gold and gorgeous sequins.
I was inspired to create an insert like this thanks to those gorgeous gold letters I found on clearance at Target. I adhered one to each pocket and filled them with sequins from the shop.
In the upper right pocket I created a shaker with Wish Upon A Starsequins and some chunky star cork confetti painted white. I also adhered a white star to the outside of my page protector too! I think adding things to the outside of page protectors creates some great dimension.
I filled the lower shaker pocket with Plum Dreamsicle sequins. I think this mix is one of my top favorites. LOVE! This was such a quick and easy project and I can’t wait to see how it bring everything together in my album.
I hope your Christmas season is full of joy and relaxing (and crafting!) Make sure you take advantage of today’s special 23% off your total order! Use the code 23ORDER when checking out. Merry Christmas!
Hello there! It is freeeeezing here in Sacramento and I for one do not care for it. I grew up on the east coast, New York to be exact and it as colder there! Lately we have been experiencing a bit of colder weather and bundling has been sounding pretty good lately! So this photo of my grandchildren was taken in November just before it started getting cold and they are in short sleeve shirts and it so reminded me that spring will be here just wait it out! Lol
On this layout I am using some of my favorite embellishments called Love Beats Mix and i just love the way this layout came out with them just smiling away and looking very happy, that’s before the cold, Lol.
I also used a tool that I have not used in a while, the We R Memory Keepers Sew Ribbon tool. That is how I got the red ribbon on the right threaded through the paper.
I was also able to use the cut files from a previous kit and I finally found a home for them on this layout. The journaling is on the back of the layout because I did not want to mess up the look of the layout.
I used some papers from Studio Calico and cut it into 4 strips and used them to stick the die cuts into the strips.
Love how this looks! I have wanted to find a home for these die cuts and I just love the way this comes out on the layout!
Love the look of the Love Beats Mix and how the heart shape ones look! They are so red and they provide a nice pop of color on the layout. Below I just happen to have a die cut saying Heartbeat, which matched the heart shaped sequins.
Thank you so much for stopping by and be sure to check out the SpiegelMom Scraps shop for some awesome sequin mixes! Be sure to use Felicia15 to get your 15% discount on your order! Have an awesome day!! Also be sure to check out the specials below!
Hello everyone and welcome! Felicia here with a very funny photo of two lovelies in my life and I have to say they keep me laughing all the time. I had asked them to act normal before snapping this photo and this is what they did, Lol! Too funny! Having my two grandchildren over is a blessing and I enjoy it every time they come visit.
So I changed my photo to black and white in order to use my favorite embellishments, which are the new sequins from the Speigelmom Scraps Shop called Amore. Take a look!
Lol! I just can’t get over this photo! Here is a close up of the sequins.
The papers and ephemera are from the Paige Evans Take Me Away collection and I love how the Amore sequins match the collection permanently.
I had to use that chipboard bow to fill in the gap at the top of the layout.
Thank you for stopping by and be sure to check out the new sequins in the Spiegelmom Scraps shop! You can also use Felicia15 to get a 15% discount on your order so have fun!

Time relaxing with family is such a gift, and I’m cherishing it! This post is picture heavy because I’m SO excited to share this fall mini album. Incorporated in my album is a full page using this week’s Let’s Get Sketchy sketch.
Target always has has smaller binders that fit 6×8 page protectors really well – and depending on the brand you purchase, you may only need to punch a few more holes. I got those gold glitter alphas and wood veneer leaves at Target too.. swoon. It looks perfect against that wood grain specialty paper I’ve been hoarding forever.
I’ve included lots of Crate Paper products in this mini – from old and new lines. Behind the “Give Thanks” title is a little Shimmerz Dazzlers in Coral Me Crazy. I love the added texture.
One of my favorite details in this mini is that shaker pocket filled with exclusive sequins, Falling Leaves.If you follow my layouts, you’ll notice that leaf looks familiar – I used lots of them here. They’re a beautiful mix of these Shimmerz products (1, 2, 3)I made a filler card with a stencil and Mari-Gold Digger texture paste and I love how it turned out. Aren’t those pictures I took of one of my besties fun!?It was so fun to work with a sketch created for a larger scale on a 6×8 layout! The title is Dear Lizzy and the scraps of paper are mostly from the Gather collection. The sequins I used on this page are an exclusive mix, Mocha Mint Dream. And I finished off with a cloud feltie.
I loved documenting these fall months in a mini, almost like a December Daily. Thanks for stopping in – I hope it’s inspired you to create!
Hello hello everyone and welcome to the Spiegelmom Scraps blog! Staying warm and cozy is one of the best things to do during the winter cold months. Food plays even a bigger part of being warm and cozy and some people even call this time of year the season for comfort food. Well since I have been trying my best to stay on a proper diet, I am finding salads to be my comfort food believe it or not, Lol!
Here is the sketch that was created by Sara Scraps and I just love this one! Also be sure to check out the LGS (Let’s Get Sketchy) blog, where they will be using the same sketch!
So here is a layout of my new found comfort food! Salomon salad with a almond flavored vinagerette salad dressing. It was SO GOOD!
This was so fun to create and I used my favorite embellishment! Sequins! Yes these are new sequins called 2 Cool 4 U by the Spiegelmom Scraps. I used them to add more interest to the layout. Here is a closer look.
I also used the Felicia Jane kit for October called Emeline that is where the wood grain hearts came from along with all the papers and puffy stickers.
I just love the combination of the puffy stickers and sequins, they just give this layout such character.
Take a look at those puffy alphas! They work out perfectly for the title of this layout.
Today I get to share my interpretation of this week’s sketch! You may have heard, we at SpiegelMom Scraps have teamed up with our friends over at Let’s Get Sketchy for the month of November. You can visit their site for the sketch or check it out here in the 15 minutes 2 Scrap Facebook group.The fun sketch Sara designed included butterflies and no matter how hard I try, I can’t figure out how to incorporate butterflies into my projects. Ugh! Strangely, I think it’s because I don’t have kids yet. So in place of those I’ve included some heart punches. My whole post was inspired by the gorgeous new sequin mix in the shop: 2 Cool 4 U. I absolutely love this mix! And while many of the mixes in the shop coordinate well with popular lines – I’m on a crafting budget, so I’ve chosen to use some papers from my stash. I stitched my punched hearts onto some paper from the Dear Lizzy Saturday collection, backed against white cardstock. I then splattered some Shimmerz Vibez in Egg Noggin’ for a little shine. I layered this picture of my sweet German Shepherd onto some vellum and gold-foil polka dotted paper.
That triangle shaped shaker pocket full of sequins found its place stitched on the corner of my patterned paper. To make this: I first trimmed an extra page protector scrap into my desired triangle shape. I then used my Fuse Tool to seal the sequins in.
I used a few pieces of wood veneer on my page including a mini clothespin, We R Memory Keepers “Honey I’m Home” title piece, and a heart from my stash. To finish off my page I included a cloud feltie from the shop, and a brad from the Simple Stories “Posh” collection. I added my journaling and then I was done! Stay tuned this month for a new sketch every week!
Hello everyone! It is that time of year where the weather gets colder, the fire place’s fire up, and soups are comfort food. Well in Northern California it does get cold, but not as cold as it did back east in New York where it can’t get more than 10 degrees below zero. Here in California the only place where it can get as cold as New York and snow is up north in Lake Tahoe. This is where I took my grandson for the first time and he had a ball.
We are teaming up with LGK (Let’s Get Sketchy) and will be using a sketch this week created by Sara Scraps and it is an awesome sketch. Be sure to check them out!
So here is my take on Sara’s sketch!
I really just love how this sketch turned out especially the new sequins from the Spiegelmom Scraps shop called Classic Cozy. Take a look at how I glued them on top of the punched out snow flakes.
There are some other details on this layout using the Classic Cozy.
Here you can see I used some Dylusions spray in London Blue for the droplets on the layout.
As you can see there are some other colors in the sequin pack and snow flakes! That is why I love this pack of sequins.
Bring on the colder weather, the new winter scrapbooking collections and this month’s SMS Product Reveal! It’s been a super crazy month in my home as many of your know. We are finally moving into our new home at this very moment and with that, moving my entire craft room and business.. CRAZY!! But somewhere in all that craziness, my love of this creative community burns stronger and stronger. I’m very excited to continue to grow the SpiegelMom Scraps community and continue to bring everyone more SMS goodies to create with. This month the new products are holiday inspired just for you. Check out these new releases and enjoy this month’s blog hop with the Sparklers DT and our special guest this month Karla Yungwirth. There will be a couple new releases coming later this month also. I’m still in the mist of moving madness so I’ll release some more new goodies very soon!
Next up, you’re skipping over to our November guest designer Karla Yungwirth! I know you’ll love her project. She’s been wowing me for months with her creative cards and layouts! Enjoy the hop my friends and don’t forget to leave comments on the blogs to be entered to win a $10.00 shop credit!
Last week I got a shipment of really gorgeous fall colored Shimmerz products from the shop. I knew immediately I wanted to use them on some Hip Kit Club leafy cut files. Above is how they turned out.. so gorgeous! But they sat there piled on my desk for a week without any direction. I soon remembered that I had felt challenged to use a black background for an upcoming layout. And so it went… The leaves were inked/painted/splattered with these Shimmerz products: Vibez Egg Noggin’ + Texturez Mari-Gold Digger + Coloringz Moody Mauve + Dazzlers Coral Me Crazy*You can use coupon code Rachel15 at checkout to get a discount on these products!
Hint: I left the cuts on my Silhouette mat as I painted (and used my heat gun to dry each layer) to help prevent curling.
To begin my layout I backed my photo with a glassine bag and some ephemera from the Gather collection. I knew I wanted to mix in the leaves included in the ephemera pack to balance out the colorful painted ones. After I played around with placement a little, I stitched all of the leaves in place. I then added a few Thickers from Pink Paislee’s Take Me Away collection – including my title. Underneath the heart I bunched up some string for a little dimension. The “happy place” chipboard is also from the Gather collection. I love how it looks on top of that postcard ephemera. To finish off my layout, I added a few gold embellishments.
I love fall so much! I really can’t get enough of colors that remind me of this changing season. I hope you’ll challenge yourself on a project soon! Thanks for stopping by.
With my project today I’m using neutrals to highlight bright pops of pink and magenta. You know I’m always loving white backgrounds. However, recently I’ve been inspired by designer Terhi Koshen to go “no white” so be on the look out for that 😉
For my paint-splattered / smudged background I used Shimmerz Vibez in Blushing Bride and Dazzlers in Spun Sugar (for the stenciled circles). I also added some gold Project Life rub-ons for a little shimmer.
The ephemera layered behind my photo comes from Pink Paislee’s C’est La Vie collection
I stitched on a cork heart from the shop and a wood veneer heart to help bring out the natural colors in the ephemera (& offset the bright pinks!) I also added a tiny wooden clothespin for this same effect.
Hello, Lisa here and Happy Monday! I’m so glad you joined me for another Make It Yours Monday! This week, the inspiration came from a cloud cut file I saw recently. I liked the shape, and the way they fit around a page. I started with my cloud paper punch, but it just was not the same shape. Then, I found my scallop punch and it all came together from there!!
I started this layout with a piece of dark blue cardstock. I mounted my photo and project life card on first, a piece of ombre pink paper from the Fancy Free paper pad. Then, I added a piece of mint cardstock behind the pink paper, to tie in the PL card color.
I added atg adhesive in the center of my matted photo piece and placed it in the center of the page. I left the sides unglued so I could work with the paper punches easier. I took the square paper all the patterns from Fancy Free and punched scalloped circles from each of the squares. I cut them in half to have 2 of each. After I laid some adhesive under the photo mat (one side at a time so the photo mat does not stick to the others while your working!!) I lined up the punched scallops, making sure to not get 2 like colors together.
The light pink and teal sequins from the Mocha Mint Dream sequin mix were a great compliment to the colors I used in the layout. I lined the bottom of the photo mat, alternating the pink and teal colors. I added a teal bow from Heidi Swapp to the bottom corner of the Project Life card. Some Gold Heidi Shine and I left it alone!!
It was a quick and easy layout but I think it’s really a pretty design. I hope you will look around and find inspiration in different places, and Make it your own, to work on a layout for you!!!
