Crafty Jen + SpiegelMom Scraps Skippings

Hello blog hoppers!  We are very excited about this month’s team up!  We are hangin out with the one and only Crafty Jen Schow!! I ‘met’ Jen through some of the fabulous Facebook groups we belong to and really came to admire her.  One thing that really struck me was this quote from her blog bio “It’s so important to focus on the things that matter — my family and telling our story through words + photos.”  I couldn’t agree more. Hooking up with Jen this month just made perfect sense, so we swapped some of our favorite products for some of Jen’s fabulous NEW cut files and scrapped our hearts out!

Here’s today’s line up!  If you get lost while your skipping along today just come back here and click over to the next blog in the line up.  We hope you enjoy the inspiration!

And now for my layout!!  I used American Crafts white cardstock as my base and began to build my layers with the Foiled Again Shimmerz Dazzlerz and a new stencil from Kaisercraft. After it was dry, I added a sheet from the 6.5 by 6.5″ KaiserCraft Finders Keepers paper pad, along with some of the die cut tags that also come inside the paper pad.  

Next, I was playing with Jen’s fabulous cut files and just had to use this lovely Scribble Floral Background and the Flowers and Flutters cut files, which are being released today!!  I added some Shimmerz Dazzlerz in Tutti Frutti to the die cut butterflies and let them dry before adhering them.

These cut files are just amazing to work with,  plus Jen has a very informative and beautiful YouTube channel where you can learn how to use them and use your cutting machine more effectively!  LOVE IT!

Ok, so you can see below just how pretty and detailed these files are.  I cut the ‘happy’ out of vellum and it’s so pretty!!  It’s from her Sweet Words cut file set.  I also used her Sweet Words print file for my title.
