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.
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.
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.
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
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!
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
Hello there everyone! I had the privilege last month to visit the train museum and I lots of fun. The last time I had been to this museum was on a field trip when my children were in the elementary level. It has changed quite a bit since then and the exhibits are a lot bigger than the last time I remembered. There was one train in particular that stood out because of the red wheels and trim on it, I just had to take a photo of this train and would not mind riding on it either! Lol!. There is a lot of California history and this train is part of it. Take a look!
Love the color scheme of this layout, it matches the train photo perfectly!
Here is a closer look at the new texture past from Shimmerz called Brick Wall and I love it! It is the perfect shade of red and the texture is nice and rough, which made for the awesome intertwined swivels. I used a stencil of course to achieve the symmetrical look of the swirls.
Wow! This is a really nice! I enjoyed using the Brick Wall texturez paste, it reminds me a little bit of railroad tracks. The collection I used is the Simple Stories Live Life In Color, Love the color and it matches the train photo perfectly!
Just thought you might like to get a close up of the sequins! I just love them and Jody does an awesome job of mixing the sequins. There are so many to choose from and you won’t be disappointed either!

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.
