Sand Play Layout with Katty Miranda

scrapbook-sessions

Hello friends! Welcome back! Sadly, this will be my last post. I have loved being a member of this amazing team and I will continue to use the amazing Spiegelmom Scraps products. Today I am sharing a 12×12 layout. I am using one of this months free cut files. I decided to shrink it down and printed it 5 times.

This cut file reminds me of seashells so it was perfect for a beach photo. I chose to use a photo of my youngest son at the beach when he was younger. I arranged the 5 cut files on a White American Crafts Cardstock and I glued some of them together to create a fun design.  I used a few of my Shimmerz Paints Mist to color the cut files. I created a rainbow of colors. I used Coloringz in My Bleeding HeartPeachy Keen, Mandarin Mai Tai,  Don’t Citron Me,  and a mix of Well Blue me Down and a Vibez in Jeni B Blue.

I decided to embellish using stickers from the Carta Bella Beach Day Collection and the beautiful Believe in You Sequin Mix. I also added some tangled thread in coordinating colors.

December Daily- Days 1-3

Hello friends! Katty here. I am extremely behind on my December Daily this year. I’m so glad I was finally able to get started. Today I am sharing Days 1-3. I have made a double 6×6 page spread. Since days 2 and 3 were very uneventful I was able to fit all three days in this double page spread.

I began with two matching pieces of patterned paper which I cut down to 6×6. They are red with white polka dots. For my left side layout I wanted to welcome back our Elf on the Shelf Buddy. I added some teal patterned paper to the bottom half. I also used a fiskars scalloped border punch with American Crafts white textured cardstock and some teal glitter tape to separate the two patterns. I added a lovely White Lace Paper Doily behind my photo of my Elf Buddy which I made round with a circle punch.

I added half circle stickers to the top and bottom of the page and I embellished with Chunky Cork Hearts and white flat back sequins from a retired mix which can also be found in the Happy Dance Mix.

I used white Freckled Fawn puffy alpha stickers to write out my tittle. My numbers for each day are also from Freckled Fawn and I embossed them with white embossing powder.

fullsizerender-78

For the page on the right I used all of the same products. I also added a tag with some Red Bakers twine.

fullsizerender-79

I printed some photos in black and white and some in color. I also added some blear phrase stickers from Recollections on one of the photos and over the patterned paper.

 

I’m really happy with how it turned out. Last years album was way too thick so I’m trying to find ways to slim it down this year and this seemed like a good option since there wasn’t much going on these three days.

Manta Selfies Layout with Katty Miranda

Hello friends! Katty here to share another 12×12 layout with you all. I am scrapbooking a selfie I took while on a weekend trip to the Island of Bimini. It was actually an island off of Bimini and there are tons of Manta Rays just swimming around. It was very cool!

I began my layout with a Prima scallop circle stencil and the Dazzlers in Sea U in the morning. I used the stencil on the top center of a White American Crafts cardstock and created a mirror image on the bottom portion of the page. I then took a circle punch and punched out different patterns from the Pink Paislee Paige Evans Take me away collection. I cut the circles in half and placed them inside my scallop circles.

fullsizerender-23

I added a few sheets of patterned paper layered behind my photo. I also added vertical strips of one of the Pink 12×12 papers from the collection on either side of the page. I also added two coordinating wash tapes to either side. I used the blue and yellow sequins from the Hot Right Now Sequin Mix. I randomly placed them on top of the scallop half circles.

fullsizerender-20

I added a few ephemera pieces from the Pinkfresh Studio Indigo Hills and used the Indigo Hills navy thickers to create part of my tittle. The rest of my tittle was created using pink letter stickers from the Basic Grey B-side collection.

fullsizerender-21

I used one of the  6×6 papers from the Take me Away Collection which had different colored stripes and I cut out the stripes. I added them in between my scallop circles. I wanted to add some of the lovely Cloudy Days Felties. I clustered them in two areas and colored some of them using the Shimmerz Vibez in Blue Jeans.

fullsizerender-22

I also added some ink splatters with the Blue Jeans Mist. I also added some turquoise thread behind my clouds and on the left side of my photo.

I love how this turned out. There is a process video on my Youtube channel if you’d like to watch: https://youtu.be/-rYBg-X5ims

Soccer Fanatic Layout with Katty Miranda

Hello friends! Katty here to share another 12×12 layout with you all. I am scrapbooking a few photos of my younger son in our backyard playing soccer. He is currently obsessed with soccer. He has to play at least a little bit every day. These shots were taken a few weeks ago with my iPhone. They are a bit blurry thats why I didn’t print them bigger. I just want them to tell the story.

I began with American Crafts White textured cardstock. I used a stencil by the crafters workshop called Mod Checkerboard. I sprayed the center of the stencil with one of my lovely Shimmerz Coloringz Sprays in the color Heidi Ho Blue and I also used my Shimmerz Dazzlers in Gummy Berry Blue. I then used a square punch and punched out my 4 photos. I then scattered those around the stencil work to create my design. I also took some black and yellow patterned papers in black and yellow and punched out some squares in two sizes and then layered them on top of each other. I scattered those around as well. I added some soccer balls and words from a Rub on sheet. I love how they look. Especially since I have a hard time with very themed embellishments.

fullsizerender-28

I then added black ink splatters in two areas of my layout. I pulled out the lovely Cloudy Days Felties in two sizes and painted the smaller ones with the Heidi Ho Blue Shimmerz Spray. As a finishing touch I added a few circle chipboard embellishments from MAMBI and I matted the whole layout on a black and white diagonal striped Patterned Paper from Simple stories.

I am very happy with how this turned out. There is a process video on my Youtube channel if you’d like to watch: https://youtu.be/y1K6mryN3dI

What about Wednesday with Katty Miranda

13932877_10210738580967273_2143640393516853298_n

Hello friends! Katty here for another What about Wednesday. Today I am focusing on a repetitive element. In my case I am using the adorable dog from the new Simple Stories Posh collection and hearts.

I began with American Crafts White Textured Cardstock which I matted with a black and cream diagonal stripe paper from the Simple Stories Posh collection. I used a Dina Wakely stencil with some tiny squares and used my Shimmerz Dazzlers in Coral me Crazy and Sea U in the Mornin through it. I created a square area behind the area where my photo will go.

fullsizerender-4

I then layered a few papers from the Posh collection about two inches from the bottom of my layout. I trimmed the sides so that my diagonal stripe border would show all around. The main paper has a big dog on it. I decided I would repeat the dog element since I am scrapbooking a photo of my nieces new French Bulldog Bruce. I used the same dog from the ephemera pack, the sticker sheet and fussy cut the same dog from one of the cut apart sheets,

I created a cluster up top using a tag I cut out from one of the patterned papers and a banner I cut out and wrote the puppy’s name on and yet another sticker of the dog from the collection.

I then added sequins to the biggest dog from the collection in coordinating colors to his clothing I used several sequin mixes from the shop. The dark blue and yellow sequins are from the Hot Right Now Mix, Teal ones from the Believe in You Mix, Green ones from the Mocha Mint Dream Mix and the Coral ones from the Peachy Sherbert Mix.

fullsizerender-2

Finally, I scattered around a few of the Chunky Cork Hearts and added a sticker heart on top. I also added a row of hearts at the bottom alternating cork hearts and stickers.

I love how it turned out. It came together very quickly!

Trendy Tuesday Layout with Katty Miranda

Hello friends! Welcome back! Katty here to share a Birthday themed 12×12 Scrapbooking layout. I began with a yellow polka dot patterned paper from my stash. I used a black and white bold stripe patterned paper from Teresa Collins to back the layout. I only wanted it peeking out on the sides. I am using two black and white photos of my older son on his 12th Birthday earlier this month. I began by matting the photos with a few layers. I used the Black Diagonal Stripe Bag in Black right behind my photo. I then layered a few patterned papers from an American Crafts 6×6 paper pad. I also scattered around some stickers and die cuts from the Simple Stories Let’s Party Collection.

fullsizerender-8

I layered some of the teal and red sequins from the Believe in You Sequin Mix over the Chunky Cork Stars and scattered those around the page.

fullsizerender-7

I then added some thin strips of two of the patterned papers as well as a row of the teal sequins from the Believe in You Sequin Mix to the left side of the layout.

fullsizerender-10

I also created a small cluster on the right hand side where I added mt date on one of the tabs from the Simple Stories die cuts.

This was fun ti create. There is a process video on my YouTube Channel: https://youtu.be/eioQmwivMIk

Scrappy Saturday Layout with Katty Miranda

13876613_10210616252669142_2391417144707825514_n

Hello friends! Katty here to share a 12×12 layout with you all. Today for Scrappy Saturday I am scrapbooking a photo of my brother and niece at her college graduation last December. We are so proud of her. I decided to print the photo in black and white because her gown was purple and my brother was wearing a red shirt! Not the best color combination.

I began with a few patterned papers from the Fancy Pants Office Suite and Happy Place Collections. I decided to use a black and white stripe and polka dot as my background. I layered them in between some American Crafts White Textured Cardstock. I tilted the papers a bit so that they weren’t all perfectly straight. I also used my distress tool to distress the white cardstock edges. I added a strip of arrows to the four corners using a Teresa Collins Stencil and the beautiful Shimmerz Dazzlerz in Coral Me Crazy.

aFullSizeRender

I added a simple black cardstock mat for my photo and layered one of the blue patterned papers behind it. I also added a White Lace Paper Doily both behind my photo and on the bottom cluster. I used one of the patterned papers that has a beautiful floral on it and fussy cut some flowers from it. I layered the flowers around my photo, which I placed towards the top left of the page and also clustered some of the flowers on the bottom right. I also grabbed some leaf sprigs and 2 flowers I had cut out in my silhouette cameo and backed those with black cardstock to add to my floral clusters.

I pulled out the Kaisercraft Finders Keepers Paper Pad and found that the colors in it worked perfectly with the Fancy Pants papers I had picked out to use.

I layered one of the papers behind my photo and pulled some of the embellishment circles and tags that come in the paper pad and scattered them around my page in my clusters. I decided  I needed an small third cluster on the top left of the page behind my photo as well. For some extra texture and sparkle I also added the beautiful yellow flowers from the Happy Dance Sequins in my clusters as well.

For my tittle I crated a shelf for my tittle to sit on to the right of my photo using a pink strip from the Fancy Pants papers and a blue scallop border from the Kaisercraft Finders Keepers Paper Pad. I added some of the flatback frosted white sequins also from the Happy Dance Sequins to the scallops. For the actual tittle I used a Wood veneer from my stash that says “Congrats,” I colored it black using Black India Ink. As a finishing touch, I added splatter with the same Black India Ink.
