Your entire line up for today’s hop is below. Each of the Sparkler’s names is a direct link to their creative blogs.
I decided to create a two page Project Life style spread for you and I really love how it turned out. I like to keep my PL spreads simple, with splashes of embellishments and sparkle. This way, the focus stays on my photos. This summer my husband and I took our three youngest daughters on a fun little photo shoot to our land where we’re currently building our home and around the town where we live. I incorporated a few of my favorite products and created fun sequin pockets along the 2×12″ section of the the WRMK pocket page protectors. I wasn’t sure how I was going to use it, but thought sequins was perfect along with using my Fuse Tool!
See those little foiled hearts in the sequin pockets? Those were foiled using the Heidi Swapp MINC Mini. The starter kit comes with several toner sheets that you can die cut or use with your paper punches. Such an awesome tool to have your scrappy arsenal!! I also created a fun little sequin shaker using a small glassine bag, Hearts on Fire sequins and some lovely black glitter Thickers from Pink Fresh Studio.
Another one of my favorite products are the felt die cuts. Birds of a Feather felt die cuts are such beauties and come in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes. As you can see, I added the white Felt-Fetti Hearts right onto my photos as simple accents. I just used tacky glue to adhere them.
Thank you for spending your time with us today! I’d love for you be in the running for one of the 3 prizes I’m giving away. Please be sure to leave comments on all the blogs to be entered! Now, you’ll be heading over to Laura’s blogwhere she’s sure to knock your creative socks right off!!! She always inspires me for sure. Happy hopping 🙂
Hello SpiegelMom Scraps fans! It’s Sarah on the blog again, today, bringing you my second guest designer project. It is a two page, Project Life, layout of our Halloween festivities. I usually do one, two page, Project Life layout per week, but when there are special events or holidays, I will do an extra two pages for it!
I used papers, stickers, and a 12×12 cut-apart sheet from the Crate Paper After Dark collection. The After Dark collection included a Spooky Glitter Thicker pack that has shapes and phrases that I just had to use! I was lucky enough to get a sewing machine from my mother-in-law this week, so I’ve used it on a lot of the cards. I think adding stitched elements to your layouts adds amazing texture!
Here we have my title card. I layered one of the 4″ Gold Foil Doilies under a tag and layered on Yellow Felt-Fetti Hearts,Midnight Felt Stars, and Studio Calico Wood Veneer Stars.
I created a shaker pocket using half a packet of the Trick or Treat Sequin Mix! I used my Fuse tool to seal it shut!
I absolutely love the Super Stars Cork embellies! They are the perfect size for Project Life, just like most of the goodies in the shop! Here I layered one under a word sticker! I also love to do this with larger enamel dots!
Here you can see a close up of the machine stitched boarder. I used another one of the 4″ Gold Foil Doilies and added a label sticker from Crate Paper After Dark. I piled on the Studio Calico Wood Veneer and Super Star Cork stars. I also used a bit of Heidi Swapp Color Shine in gold.
I layered on the felt, cork, and wood hearts and stars on this card! To add some texture, I looped several strands of gold thread and stapled them in place!
Well, that’s all from me today! I hope that I can inspire you to get those memories scrapped. However you document your memories, Jody will have just the right elements in her shop to help you make your projects shine! I can’t wait to create another project to share with you next week!
Hi, there, scrappy friends….I hope everyone had a fun weekend. Are you ready to start scrappin’….I bet some of you already have. Here is what I have been up to. I decided to create another pocket page for one for one of my scrapbooks. As always, it was fun playing with my embellishments from SpiegelMom Scraps Ok, let’s get started. Here is the completed layout; then, I will get into the details.
It is always fun scrapping pics of my kids when they were younger. I definitely have plenty of those pics to scrap yet. This is great for Jody’s 15 minutes a day plan 🙂 Speaking of a plan, here is the first detail I wanted to include. It was fun watching my children together as they shared my daughter’s 7th birthday.
Oh, and I just love the heart with all of those lovely sentiments. I really like the way it fits in the pocket so nicely.
Well, you know how much I adore the sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps….I had to use them on this layout, too. Before I show you the detail shot, I would like to share how sequins have become a part of our home. My hubby found some on the floor in our kitchen and and asked me if I needed these. I told my hubby that I definitly did….I think he gets the picture….really, what kitchen floor doesn’t need a bit of sparkle, right?
I really had good time creating this layout. I sure hope that you have some time for creating yourselves this week. Oh, I would love to hear!! I will be back next week with one more project as SpiegelMom Scraps GD for June. It’s been great!!
