My Universe with Laura

Scrapbook Sessions

Hi Guys!  Laura here today.  I was having an episode of ‘scrappers block’… only one thing to do – find a layout that inspires me and CASE it!  I turned to my Sparklers team-mate Yulia, and this is what happened.

Oh boy!  I had fun with the metallic shiny paints and mists on this one!!  I used a combination of paints, Heidi shines, spray mists and Shimmerz paints to achieve my background.  Whilst I had the mists out I dyed a doily too.

I coloured some wood veneer stars in a bright blue.  When matting my photo I wanted some more of this blue.  Not having anything in my stash that matched I painted some card with the mist so it matched perfectly.

I started adding a few sequins from the Glass Slipper mix, then some stars from Sunny Smiles…  then some stars from Fairytale 2… and then a few blue ones from Magical Ocean.  I found it hard to stop!!

I really love how it turned out.  Next time you are having a hard time starting a layout why not find a layout that you love and interpret it in your style.  Thanks to Yulia for the inspiration!

Shake It Up Scrapbooking

Hi Friends, Laura here today.  I was inspired by a recent layout from our very own Jody.  She had made a segmented shaker pocket, and this is my take on that…

I don’t have a fuse – my tool of choice is usually a sewing machine – but this time I opted for card and foam tape to divide my pocket in to three sections.

I used plenty of SpiegelMom Scraps products, and I’ll point them out as we look through the close ups.  I placed a doily underneath my title – it gives the title a nice place to sit whilst adding subtle detail and texture.

My string of bunting is made with yellow bakers twine and secured with a couple of mini clothes pegs.  I didn’t like the plain wood with the yellow so I coloured the pegs with a gold pen.

I wanted to hide my journalling so I used a glassine bag, shipping tag and some more twine.  My photo is popped up on foam adhesive squares.

My sequin mix is the beautifully happy Sunny Smiles.

My flair needed something underneath to make it pop, so I made a nest of black thread.  Having used the thread on one area I repeated it in two others to pull the whole layout together.  I love the pops of black to add contrast.

I finished off my title with a sprinkling of sequins – this brought the yellow and gold to the left hand side of the page.

I have made a process video to go along with this layout…

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy NSD!  It’s Laura and I am interrupting the celebrations to share my regular Saturday post with you – but don’t worry – it is a layout!

I’ve been experimenting with the white felt feathers.  I wanted to know if they would take colour – they do!  I sprayed the feathers with water and sprinkled on some brusho powders.  I needed a lot of water to get the colour moving but I love the results.  Now I know I can alter any of the white felt shapes to any colour to match whichever project I am working on.

I dyed these ones to match my budgie’s feathers – yellows, greens and a little blue in the long tail feather.  The different sized yellow sequins in the Spring Blooms and Sunny Smiles mixes match in perfectly.  Other than that I kept it fairly simple layering each feather over a piece of cotton ribbon tape and stitching with my sewing machine to attach to the layout.

I added my alphas directly to my photo and popped up the top of each letter with a little silicone glue.  I love the extra dimension this gives the page.

This also fits the criteria for my challenge to you over the weekend – scrap a layout with ribbon.  If you do you can join us at SpiegelMom Scraps facebook page to link up!

Thanks for stopping by!

A lil love mini

Scrappy situation

Hi all it’s Anna Sigga here and I have an altered mini cover to share.

Love-mini

This 4×4 mini from WRMK needed a bit of color so I used the gorgeous Sunny Smiles sequin mix and flower from my stash. I used the white lace doily and the Amy Tan wood veneer as a background piece.

Love-mini-cl2

Just love how a flower and pretty sequins can dress up an every-day album!

Thanks for stopping by and hope your Friday is good one.

Scrappy Happenings

Hi Folks, Laura here today to share a fun and colourful layout.

The background is made with sea green Brusho powder and happens to match the Bermuda Triangle sequin mix and the Sunny Smiles sequin mix perfectly!!

The sunny smiles mix is so bright and happy and the tiny gold stars are adorable!

And I’m still loving the triangles in the Bermuda mix.
