Tuesday’s Talent with Pocono Pam

Happy New Year Spiegel Mom Scraps fans! Pocono Pam here! I am super excited and honored Jody invited me to start 2016 off as her guest designer for the month of January! I am a fan of Jody’s embellishments and cannot wait to share my projects with you all.  But before I do, a little something about me……

I began scrapbooking in 2009 when I moved to the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania from New York City. I was attracted to how AWEOSME the crafting community is and wanted a reason to play with a hot glue gun! I started of with layouts but quickly discovered altered items, mini albums and card making. Lately, though I have always used one, I have become a planner addict! When I am not playing with paper and glue, you can find me at the gym or watching classic movies on TCM. I am also a tennis fan, play Animal Crossings and love laughing and hanging out with my hubby, children and close friends.

Ok…Ok…enough about me. Let me share the first project. This year I challenged myself to create more cards. I have folders full of images that I color and never adorn on a project or card. So, I grabbed one of my favorite images from my stash and together with Spiegel Mom Scraps Poppin’ Pink Flurries, I created a 7” X 6” shaker card.

The “Flurries” are beautiful pink metallic snowflakes! They measure just under one inch and need a space large enough for them to “ shake”! I knew the Tim Holtz Baroque die would do the trick! I wanted additional snowflakes, so I removed the adhesive from snowflake and star stickers I had in my stash and added then to the shaker window. I love how the Poppin Pink Flurries layered nicely on the snowflakes stickers outside of the shaker window. I added bling to add an extra pop!

The super sassy Pink Bow Ties image Courtney, is stating exactly how she feels with a Studio Calico wood veneer speech bubble which can be found in the SMS shop. I used pink Wink of Stella to add a little shimmerand color.

I looooooove the cork embellies that Jody sells and had to use them on this card. I used several pieces from the Cork Fetti Hearts. I also used pink and white checked ribbon from the SMS shop.

I looove these string of cork hearts!

The wood veneer was sooooooo easy to alter!
