Hello again! It’s Kelly and I have my third project to share with you this week. I did a layout similar to this last year and loved it so much I had to do it again this year. The photo is not great, but it is my son’s senior class schedule. In ten years it will be fun for him to look back on this and see the classes that he took his senior year.
On the background I used a few Shimmerz watercolors and Well Blue Me Down mist and the famous packaging technique. Once that dried, I used Salt of the Earth Paste-eez through a Tim Holtz stencil for some added texture.
For this layout I chose to work with the more masculine papers in Paige Evan’s Turn the Page collection. I cut the word Senior with my Silhouette software, using the font Blackout Sunrise. I just checked the shop and the sequins that I used for this project are already sold out!! However, the Magical Adventure and Lisa’s Starry Night packs are pretty close to the pack that I used if you are looking to replicate my project.
To adhere the sequins to the letter, I put double sided tape on the inside of the I and pushed the sequins down. Since this is a technique that I have not personally done before, I was not sure how well the sequins would stick. They stick amazingly well to the double sided tape which made it so easy to arrange the sequins.
Adding a few sequins around the page helps to bring a bit more bling to the clusters and helps to make the layout look more cohesive.
If you’d like to take a peek at my process, I’ve included a link below. Thanks so much for joining me today, and I hope this inspires you!
Hello friends! I hope that you are having a fantastic week. Today I am sharing a layout and process video in which my focus is on using Shimmerz Paste-eez Salt of the Earth, and Black Tie Event sequins. Unfortunately the Black Tie Event sequins have sold out, but I’m pretty sure that Moonshine Delight and Crushin’ on Purple will work as well if you’d like to replicate the sequins that I used for this project.
I used several Felicity Jane kits for the papers and embellishments for this layout. Once I settled on the color scheme, the layout came together fairly quickly. Adhering a few sequins down the edge of my photo is one of my favorite go-to techniques when it comes to sequins. It doesn’t take a lot to make a big impact on your page.
If you have never tried modeling paste through stencils, this is the perfect one to purchase. The texture of white on white amazing, especially in person. For this layout I chose to use a geometric stencil because I felt like the graphic nature of the triangles worked well with the dots and lines on the patterned papers.
Adhering the tiny stars was easier than I thought, and I found that using Scotch Tacky Adhesive worked well. It dries clear which is a huge plus. I love the combination of the silver stars and the holographic sequins. They are so versatile and can be used for so many different projects.
Thanks so much for joining me today, and I hope that you have a great week!
Hello Sparklers! I’m Kelly Barron, and I’m the guest designer for the month of October. Today I’m sharing with you the first layout that I created this month featuring the Sweet Summer Vibes sequin pack and the Summer Lights collection by Pink Paislee. I used a free cut file from the Paper Issues store and backed it with patterned paper, and then machine stitched around the heart in silver thread.
The sequins in this pack are gorgeous and perfect for this collection. I chose to make a sequin frame around my photo which really plays up on the title “Electric Love”. There are several different ways that I have adhered sequins to my layouts. For the frame I adhered red line tape around the edges of the photo, and then pressed the sequins down onto the adhesive. This works amazingly well for flat sequins, and it made adhering them down so easy.
The smile emoji was punched out from the specialty paper in the collection. I’m always on the lookout for these types of papers because they really do help stretch your collection with ephemera.
I have included a link to my process video if you’d like to see how this layout came together. Thanks so much for joining me today, and I hope that you have a great day!
Hello friends! It’s Karla here today with a fun card folding technique to share with you – the Diamond Fold card! It’s a really easy fold that looks amazing, and anyone who receives it will totally love it!
You can follow along with the folding instructions in the video HERE or click below.
I used some Color Burst powders to watercolour my papers, which came with a resist printed on them. The Color Bursts are so fun to work with – and it’s like a magic show every time you spritz them with water!! I used a pretty pink flower sequin from the Raspberry Daisy Dream sequin mix and stitched it onto my loopy ribbon bow with a clear bead in the center and then added some more pretty sequins from the Summer Sunset and Let’s Be Mermaids mixes.
I used some Izink inks to colour the Cork Confetti Butterflies in to match the pretty colours on the card. I love how the texture of the cork shows through!
Here’s a look at the cork and sequins I used today, which you can find in the shop.
A bit of butterfly paper peeks out from the inside folds when the card is taken out of the envelope. I love that it tucks small enough to fit inside an envelope and then stands upright on it’s own! You can turn the card over and write a personalized message on the back for someone special.

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 Heart, Peachy 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.
This was a lot of fun to create. I love this cut file.

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

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.
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.
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.
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.
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
