Hi/ The Fairytale Club DT

Good morning everyone! Sarah here this morning to share with you a layout I made of me and my goofy mom. She was sick on Mothers Day, but shes my mom and I wanted to see her, so we went down and spent the day with my parents and I got her to play on snapchat with me.


I loved the paper that said you are here and hello there and I wanted to use it as a background, so I pulled that one. Then I grabbed the too cute unicorn paper and cut a triangle from it for my bottom left corner and placed it there. 


I had used an app on my phone and made a photo strip out of some of the pictures and printed them out. I added some of the light teal polk adoted paper behind my pictures, then added the top of one of the tags from the ephemera pack. I pulled a few more pieces from the ephemera pack, like the adorable flamingo and the gold leaves and tucked them in there and there.


I added some of the cute wood buttons and sequins, I didnt follow the rule of 3's on this layout and I had a bit of a hard time because of that, but in the end I thought it turned out pretty good! After tucking things in here and there on the layout and adding my little bit of bling, with the sequins, I added the die cut Hi from the ephemera pack, for my title.
I thought I was done, but I wanted a  little more color on the script paper, but I didnt want to add splatters to this layout. So I grabbed my water colors and started coloring in some of the location symbols.That was it for this layout for me. I hope you enjoyed it and I hope to see what you do with this kit too!!

This is the good life-Pretty little Studio DT

Good morning everyone!
Im so happy that the weekend is almost here! This layout makes me look forward to the weekend even more then normal! I used the Beautiful Day collection to capture a great moment with my hubby and his did. It was so peace full and beautiful standing on the lake fishing.


I started out with white cardstock for my background, I do this way to often lol. I knew what photo I was going to scrap so I had that pulled out too. I started mating my photo and placed in down in the middle of the layout where I wanted it and then moved on to adding embellishments.


After I had adhered my photo down, I added a label to the top and bottom of the photo. Then I grabbed the paper called Peach Snowcone, I loved the triangles, so I decided to cut some of them out and place them around the layout on the background.
I added a label cut apart here and there and then broke in to the die cut greenery and added them around the layout, behind corners of the photo and behind some of the triangles.


I added a small amount of journaling, this in not something I normally do but I am still working on it. Im always worried that I'll mess up on the journaling and ruin my layout lol. But I added the journaling and then added some Heidi Swapp Gold color shine and was done.

You+Me Happy-Trendy Tuesday/Spieglemomscraps DT

Good morning everyone!! Sarah here this morning and I have a new layout to share with you all! So this week is stitching week here at Spiegelmomscraps, so of course I'm going to have stitching on my layout, but I've also noticed a big trend of layouts with circles on them. So thats what I did this week.


I grabbed Crate papers Hello Love collection, pulled out some of the papers I wanted to play with and of course went with the Fairy Garden sequins from the shop.


I laid my circles where I wanted them across my layout on a diagonal and decided I would cut my picture in one too. I have seen it all over and havent cut my pictures into shapes in forever, so I thought I would go all in and do it with this layout. I stuck my circles down and instead of adding a mat behind my photo, I pulled out my water color paints and painted a black circle that would show from behind the photo. once it dried I  added some 3D foam adhesive to pop it up and stuck it down.


I pulled out my ephemera pack, stickers and some of the chipboard sheet and started to play. I added a few flowers pocking out from behind my picture. Then I went trough and pulled different hearts and some arrows here and there.


I had all my papers down and started stitching around my circles in different colored embroidery thread. I love the texture it added to the layout! I have sewn on a few layouts in the past but this made me want to do it even more!!
After I finished my stitching, I added in all the chipboard and stickers and started adding my oh so pretty sequins. To finish the layout, I grabbed my water colors that I already had out and started splattering in different colors.

I hope you liked this layout and I hope you will join in on the fun this week and stitch on a layout with us!! And make sure to use this code and head over to the Spiegelmomscraps shop and grab you some pretties too!

Every book is a new adventure/Fairytale Club DT

Good morning everyone! I hope you had a great 4th of July with friends and family. I was happy that I got to spend it with both and we all had an amazing time!
So this weeks theme for me was "Books" and lucky for me, I just got a few new book and cant wait to start reading. For me, I love ready books that draw you in and make you feel like your in a completely different place! So I choose my title with that in mind.



I decided that I wanted to do block lettering with my title, so I pulled bits from different papers in this months kit and started to cut my title out. I added a very little bit of adhesive to the letters and placed them where I wanted and them I sewed through them, I wanted them to be able to lift off the page a little still, so I didn't add anymore adhesive to my letters.
I had taken my picture of my book already, so I started layering papers behind my photo. Knowing how I had done the title and running through my head what I wanted to do embellishment wise, I chose to put my photo to the bottom right of my layout.
Then I went to fussy cutting the pretty little books out of some of the planner inserts and layering them to the left of my photo along with some fussy cut roses and a beautiful rose ephemera piece.


I liked my layout at this point, but I wanted to use that gold unicorn so bad, so I decided to add little embellishment clusters in a few places around the title.
I added that cute little unicorn, I was dying to use! lol and then of course I had to use those new little wooden buttons that came in this months kit. They are adorable and add dimension and I just love them!


I added hearts to the right of my title. The gold foiling is so pretty! I also cut out a heart from one of the papers and added it, along with another wood button. I thought I would finish off my layout adding some gold Heidi Shine and some of the pretty sequins.
I hope your enjoying your kit this month and I hope that you enjoyed my layout today!

So lovely-Pinsperation/Pretty Little Studio DT

Hello everyone and Happy 4th of July!! 
I hope your all getting to spend some time with friends and family! Me and my family are getting to spend today with my parents, some other family and close friends. If you don't follow me on Instagram you may not know but my dad had a big health scare this last week. We took him to the emergency room and they admitted him with internal bleeding and a few other problems. A lot went on, he had to have a blood transfusion, just to much! But he is home now and we are thankfully getting to spend the 4th with them, So again I hope you are getting to enjoy some good quality time with friends and family!

So today I am here to share with you a layout inspired by a picture from Pinterest.



This picture was beautiful with all of the clustered flowers and white space, so thats what I did with my layout as well.


I chose my photos and knew I wanted to keep everything pretty much centered on the page like the floral pineapple in the picture. I adhered the two pictures together and then layered two different colored bracket cards behind them. I put the pictures and there mats down in the center and then went for those gorgeous floral sticker and die-cuts.  


I clustered all the pretty florals, die-cut pieces and butterflies around the photos, keeping with the cluster in the center of the page.


I finished off my layout by adding some black water color splatters and matting the whole layout. I would love to see your take on this pinsperation picture and I hope you enjoyed my layout too!!

Trendy Tuesday-My Girl/SpiegleMomScraps DT

Good morning everyone!!! I hope your having an amazing 4th of July with your friends and family!! Sarah here this morning with my 1st trendy Tuesday post and as you  have probably heard this weeks theme is emojis!!! 
I love emojis, they are just so cute! And my kids know what they are and love to draw them and the oder ones sending me different ones on their phones lol.


I chose to use the Crate paper line, Cute girl for my layout this week. I love all the girly little things you can do with this collection, but with the way I did this layout there wasn't a lot of room for embellishing.
I went with a quite large emoji for my layout because I knew I wanted to make it itself a shaker pocket. I used one of the cut-files offered from SpiegleMomScraps this month, This is just one of the emojis that there are in the cut-file,But my emoji is how I started my page, other then having my photo already picked out, lol.



In my stash I have a bunch of stuff but I have like 3 boxes of clear sheets that were for over head projectors, I dont even know if they use those anymore, lol, but I have a bunch of them. So I cut my emoji out on my Silhouette and placed 2 behind the outer part and started sewing it on my sewing machine. I left a place open big enough for me to pour my Gotta Love Emojis sequin pack is and then finished sewing it up. I placed it on my page where I wanted it to the left because in the picture my daughter was looking in from the right.
After my big smiling emoji was down, I added a few strips of paper to the bottom of my layout and then went to layering papers behind my photo. I put my photo down and pulled out my embellishment pack, along with some of the sticker sheets and started to play a little. I have always loved that little doll from this collection and I thought this was a great layout to use it on! So I added her to the right side of my photo and then layered a few puffy flower stickers and some little hearts. I popped my title under the picture. Then I decided to add a few little banner pieces  and a few hearts to the top left of my layout and a few little word stickers  and more little hearts to the bottom left and was done.
I hope you enjoyed the layout I made today, I loved playing with the emojis and I hope you play along too!! Happy 4th to everyone again!!

Setting up my Planner with June "Storytime" kit/The Fairytale Club

Good morning everyone!
 I'm here this morning to share with you a spread in my memory planner. And man am I so excited to be using the June "Storytime" Kit! It is so beautiful! I have a things for purple and this kit has it!


I do memory planning, but just like a lot of other planner girls, I do a little bit of set up before the month starts. The spread I'm sharing with you today is the last few days of June and the Start of July. 


I started out by choosing a paper from the kit.This was harder then I thought it was going to be. But I decided on the one with the pretty two toned hearts and cut it down to fit the right hand side of the page. I tend to cover this portion, because its already colored in my planner, so I cover it, I dont always do this, but most of the time. After I have that adhered down I choose a washi tape that I want to use, this kit has a lot of gold in it so I chose a gold washi tape. To be honest, I love to use the gold washi anyways, lol. 


At this point I start to play a little with embellishments, inserts, tags and other things. I remembered seeing this "Hi" planner page and I thought that it would be a great way to bring in July! So I punched it so it would fit in my planner and then grabbed the beautiful chipboard alphas and wrote July in different colors. Then I went back and grabbed that cute little crown and added it to the top of the insert.


I did add a few pieces from the ephemera pack. A few of the pretty gold foiled hearts, wrote in things that I knew were happening on these days and added a few other bits here and there. But I did make sure to leave quite a bit open because I know I will add pictures and more journaling.

Junes "Storytime" kit is beautiful and if you haven't subscribed yet, make sure you go check it out, you wont want to miss out on this beautiful kit!!
