Gratitude Friday -Grace

Happy Friday, friends!

Today I’m talking about a fun layout inspired by thankfulness and grace. Fall encourages me to breath in the crisp air and slow down a little. I took the photo in this layout while on a church retreat at a monastery. Talk about experiencing slowed-down stillness.

I started with white cardstock and splattered some Shimmerz Coloringz in Moody Mauve across the middle section of my page. I then added some scraps of wood grained papers horizontally with the paint.

I stamped some plus signs in silver before I layered some Crate Paper “Gather” ephemera underneath my picture, along with some Pink Paislee “C’est La Vie” ephemera. I was a little hesitant to mix that teal with the mauve but I love how it turned out. I also really love the gold accents from those collections.

After I had my picture where I wanted, I began embellishing – my favorite part! I used some cork confetti and sequins from the shop, along with some wood veneer stars stamped silver + some gold enamel dots.

I finished off my layout with some stitching, the perfect finishing touch! I hope this layout has inspired you to seek grace and gratitude during this beautiful time of the year. Be on the look out for some new releases in the shop. I can’t speak for every DT member but I will certainly be including some gorgeous new products in my next project.

P.S. I did a brave (and scary!) thing and ventured into the world of filming process videos. You can check this quick video out here.

Make It Yours Monday

Hello Everybody and thank you for joining me for another Make It Yours Monday! I have a really fun and colorful layout for you today that I was totally inspired to create after seeing a circus themed party collection at my local party store!! I knew I had to use this photo of my oldest daughters kindergarten class’s “Clowning Around” spirit day from last year.

9-25-footer

I started, as I usually do, with a piece of American Crafts Textured White Cardstock. I splattered the background with Pretty In PinkHeidi Ho Blue, and Pink Stilettos coloringz from Shimmerz. I marked out where my photo will be and then used my Heidi Swapp Confetti Stencil to create the stars. I used the Dreamscicle and Lemon Drop dazzlerz through the stencil. I didn’t clean the stencil between colors, allowing some of it to mix and create a new color!

9-25-2

While I was waiting for the background to dry, I started on my photo layers. Using scraps from stash, I used the colors from the photo to help me choose the colors for the papers. I misted a white doily from the shop with the 2 pink mists I used on the background to create a pink one and layered them with the photo cluster also.

9-25-3

When the background was dry, I adhered the photo cluster to the page. I outlined each of the strips the photo is on with my black pen and added my journaling,  Chunky Cork Stars were the first fun embellishments I added around the page in clusters. Wood Veneer stars joined the cork, as well as some of the pretty yellow and teal sequins from the Believe In You sequin mix. I broke out some of my new colors of Nuvo drops and added some dots into the mix. I added the title “Class Clowns” to my photo and I was done! This is such a FUN and COLORFUL layout, inspired by a PLATE!!!

I’m SO excited to be back with another Make It Yours Monday!!! This week’s layout is special to me! It’s an original sketch, my first ever!!!

My layout was inspired by my living room photo display…

6955265e59c16152d8cc5cb6613e36e7

I Started with a piece of wood grain paper from Simple Stories. I cut out the center and backed my photo with the inside piece. I layered a Medium Glassine Bag under the matted photo and then layered another piece of wood grain paper as the final mat.  I adhered 3 Normandy Doilies, cut in half, to the top and bottom of the matted photo for some texture.

14316835_10210356250123577_7387649189751259866_n

I set aside the photo cluster and began to work on my background. I cut down a piece of white American Crafts cardstock to about 10×10 and splattered some Shimmerz Coloringz in  Heidi Ho Blue and Pretty in Pink across the center as well as some Gold Heidi Shine.

Next, I moved onto the messier (my favorite) part. I started with some Spun Sugar Dazzlers and Rose Gold glitter paste from Bo Bunny. I used a burlap stencil from Tim Holtz and created my 3 areas of mixed media. After it was dry, I edged the white paper with Walnut Stain Distress ink.

14359224_10210356205642465_6566022140248507998_n

From there, I adhered my matted photo to the center of the page. I tucked a shipping tag into the bag layer behind my photo for my journaling.

Then, the FUN stuff! The embellishment’s for this layout were so fun! I used a scrap strip of the wood grain paper to make a cluster just above the photo and attached a scrap of doily left over from the other cut pieces from earlier.  This cluster also got some of the awesome Cloudy Day Felties and a Cork Star that I added some dot details to make it look like a starfish! Some green sequins from the pretty mix A Day In The Woods and some blue from the beautiful Lets Be Mermaids mix finished off this cluster.

14344870_10210356207802519_6405759811220375378_n

I added some more Cork Stars, again with the dot details, to the bottom left of the photo with some sequins from the same mixes and a wood veneer star. The top right corner also got the same fun little details. I added my title right to the photo and I was done!

14358816_10210356206802494_6707615841973686896_n  14370247_10210356207442510_6605754924433721064_n

I cant even get over how much I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this Layout!!! I’m so glad you joined me this week for Make It Your’s Monday because this really does show you how inspiration can come from ANYWHERE or ANYTHING!!!

Tuesday Talent

Tuesday's Talent

Hi everyone, Mandi here for your Tuesday Talent series. Today, I will be focusing on the Natural Burlap String Navy Blue Burlap String Gold Sequin Confetti and Silver Stardust Sequin Confetti products. The pattern paper I used on this card was from Fancy Pants “Good Fellows” collection. All of these are going to be used on a fun shaker card, which just happens to work for a guy’s birthday. We all know it is hard to make a fun guy card.

Collages

The shaker frame was so easy to make.

  1.  Adhered a piece of plastic (I used a piece of a page protector) to the backside of the chipboard frame.
  2.  Attached foam tape (I didn’t have any so I used foam squares) alone the four edge.
  3. Place sequins inside.
  4. Stamp image/sentiment to pattern paper that is the same size as frame
  5. adhere backing to frame.

To adhere the cork shapes, I applied adhesive to them with the x sticker maker from Xyron. I then laid the the cork stickers on top of the string, this acted as a tape to attached the string.

Thanks for stopping by and I hoped I showed you that sequins / shaker boxes can be used on guy cards.

 

Play: Process Video with Khristina

Hi Everybody! I am SO very excited to be back this week at SpiegelMom Scraps with my second Guest Designer project for the month of July. I am having a blast working with these amazingly fun products and I hope that I have inspired you to give them a try too!

Today, I am going to share a layout and process video using a few different collections and embellishments as well as a cut file that I created to make “fake” shaker pockets so much easier and faster!! What’s even better is I have included my basic title cut file below so that you can try it out too! You can find the process video by clicking here.

One of my favorite uses for all of these beautiful sequins is to create shaker pockets combined with cut files. The two elements naturally work well together and create a fun and unique detail on your page. The problem is that cut files and shaker pockets and can be messy and a lot of work. So….today I am showing you a way to make it a little easier and faster to get the same look.

Without further ado, here is my completed project and some close-ups as well as some helpful hints. Make sure to check out the process video as well as it gives more of a step-by-step guide to what I did to create this look.

Khristina Guest Designer Project

By creating two layers with my cut file, I was able to cut the outline of the letters on regular white cardstock and then the filled version of the letters with sticker paper (cut thru my Silhouette upside down just like in the video—yellow side upJ ) This allowed the sticky side to be facing upward and easily adhered those sequins and details. I added a piece of clear transparency between the sticker paper layer and the cardstock outline layer and voila….the look of a shaker pocket with simple steps and sequins that won’t move around and pool up at the bottom of the letters!!

From the SpiegelMom Scraps Store, I worked with two different sequin packages: Amy’s Sprinkles and Hot Right Now. I also used the Normandy 4 inch white doilies which I colored on the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink in Mermaid Lagoon. The last component that I incorporated from SpiegelMom Scraps was the super fun Felt-Fetti Hearts.

Make sure to click below to try out the PLAY title cut file. Make sure to share your project with me if you use the cut file to create one. Also, make sure to check out the process video that goes with this layout by clicking here.  I will be back next week with another fun project!  Happy Crafting!!

Up North Layout and Process Video with Khristina

Hi Everybody! I am SO very excited to be here at SpiegelMom Scraps as the Guest Designer for the month of July. The month started off with a bang with the new releases on July 1st including six amazing new sets of sequin mixes. Today, I am going to share a layout and process video using one of those collections, A Day in the Woods, which is shown here:

A Day in the Wood

A Day in the Wood

One of my favorite uses for all of these beautiful sequins is to create shaker pockets combined with cut files. The two elements naturally work well together and create a fun and unique detail on your page. This collection coordinates perfectly with SO many of the new summer collections including both Bo Bunny’s new Take a Hike Noteworthy Collection and the new Pink Paislee Outfitters collection. My layout combined some elements from both of those collections.

Without further ado, here is my completed project and some close-ups as well as some helpful hints.

July 2016 Guest Designer Layout

From the SpiegelMom Scraps Store, I worked with the A Day in the Woods sequin mix as well as the Cork-Fetti Hearts and the Fuse Tool. I picked up some 3×4 Project Life Pockets and used those along with my Fuse Tool to create three small shaker pockets where I mixed in some sequins along with some of the mini cork hearts.

IMG_7082

I have the larger cork hearts added to the embellishment clusters to tie it all together. One big hint for making those shaker pockets work with the cut file is to back the cut file with patterned pattern and then with some foam adhesive or Fun Foam which adds some natural dimension that you can use to allow the shaker pockets room to fit.

There are loads of hints and suggestions in the process video that I have over on my You Tube Channel to coordinate with this project. You can find that video here. I would love to see what you create with the A Day in the Woods sequin mix and hope that you will share with us here at SpiegelMom Scraps. I will be back next week with another fun project!

Happy Crafting!!

 

 

Hi all, Lea’s here :today’s proposal is a couple of ATC  very easy and fast to say “thank you”.
I cut from cardboard two ATC (6.35 cm x 8.89) and I proceeded to each of the two in a very similar way. With the cotton thread I created an irregular circle and on it I applied the little stars of different colors and sizes giving the feeling of a small wreath; in the center I placed a wooden heart.
I have handwritten “thank you” and finally I splashed the color matched with the thread of the garland.
This project is very simple and quick to make a small thank-you card to accompany a gift or just to say “thank you”
