Scrappy Saturday-This makes my heart happy SMS DT

Good morning everyone!! Sarah back again this morning with a fun little layout of my little girl and camping last fall. This child's hair crazy!! lol It rained while we were camping and we played in the rain and her hair curled up into messy little ringlets! So of course I had to capture it!

I had pulled out my Maggie Holmes, Gather collection and my Spieglemomscraps Morning Glow sequin mix, they went together perfectly! I loved the paper I had chose for the background, one because its just so pretty and two, because I don't use patterned paper much as my background and have been trying to do it more. To tone it down a bit though, I did had a sheet of vellum and then started to build my focus from there.

I wanted my layout to be focused across the center of the layout. I added a white photo mat to my picture, added a doily from Pretty little Studios and placed it in the center of the layout and built out from there. I grabbed one of the cut apart sheets from the collection and cut a few of the pieces down to look like banners. I tucked the darker blue one to the left of my photo and then went through the ephemera pack and pulled some of my fav pieces out, like the cute little acetate bear with the bow, some leaves and a few pieces to layer under my photo too.
I tucked the little bow bear in and added a few leaves and moved to the other side of my photo.

On the right side of my photo I tucked in a plaid tag and added one of the pieces I had cut out from the cut apart sheet. I tucked in a few more leaves and added some stickers with sweet little sayings and moved to the bottom of my photo to add a few layers.

Some of the piece I had pulled from the ephemera pack previously, I started to layer in under the bottom of the photo till I was happy with the way they looked, then I added a few more stickers and my beautiful Morning Glow sequin mix to the layout and that finished it off for me!

Fairy Tale Club Halloween Banner!!

Good morning everyone!! Sarah here with a cute little Halloween banner I made with this months cute kit.

I started out by pulling papers and planner inserts that I though went well together and of course that I thought were too cute! I got them in an order that I liked and started cutting them down to size.

I started out with the white paper that had all the cool little orange Halloween doodles. I went through the die cut pack and pulled sooo much out lol, and then went to town on embellishing each banner piece. I wanted the die cut Halloween word on the first one. But I wanted to add a few pops of color from the papers too. I used a punch from my stash and punched out some of the purple paper and then tore a piece of the pink paper and adhered them down.I added a gold foil spider web, then added the die cut Halloween word and slid a die cut two toned pumpkin and a gold foiled pumpkin sticker too. 

I moved on the the next on, this was a planner insert and already had the happy pumpkin on it so I added some of the die cut candy pieces. I didnt add much to this one cause I loved that smiling pumpkin!

The middle one was another planner insert. I loved the witch and the colors, so I added a doily behind this one and wasn't sure what else I wanted to do so I moved on.

The Beware one was also a planner insert and I didnt want to add to much to this one either, so I added a few die cut shapes and moved on to the last one.

I actually took a planner insert and cut the adorable teal bat out and wanted to use it. I punched a few of the papers from the kit with one of my punches and layered them, then added the cute little bat on top. I pulled out a few stickers, gold foiled and not. 

I knew I wanted to add more to all of them, so I decided to sew them together and use a little extra stitching on them. I liked the way that looked but wanted a little bling, so I did grab some sequins from my stash, some from one of my 1st FTC kits and a mix of others. After I added the little bit of bling I was happy with it and hung it up on the wall in my kitchen!

I hope you like this little banner I made and I hope you are inspired to play and make something fun for Halloween too!!

Fall Riddin-Pretty little Studio DT -Pinsperation

Good morning everyone!! I hope you had a good weekend and a great start to your fall!
It has finally started to cool off here in the south and it is so nice!! It is time for bon fires, sweaters and boots!! So on that note, I wanted to share with you a layout I made of some picture from about two falls ago. We were up in the mountains four wheeling and driving the kiddos around in the mule. We had a blast!
I used this picture for inspiration for this layout:

I thought that I would go with fall colors and circles since the picture is full of pumpkins,lol. I pulled out multiple papers and punched different sized circles out. I knew I wanted more color on the background without adding a lot of paper besides the circles. So I pulled out some of my shimmerz and added a bit of color to the background, sat it aside to dry and pulled out come papers and started popping out some circles.

I had 2 photos from fall a few years back, we loaded the littles up in the mule and drove them around while some of the adults road the four wheelers. It was nice and cool outside and a good day for a long ride. So after popping out a bunch of circles, I laid my photos out where I wanted them and started placing the circles down.

After I got the 1st set of circles laid down, I went back threw and added some of the circle stickers in over lapping some of them. When I was done adhering the circles down I went back in and drew around then.  

I added my title to the left of my photos, then went back in and added a few clear epoxy stickers over some of my circles to add a little dimension. I liked my layout at this point but thought it was missing something. So I decided to cut a few paper strips and add them to the left and right of the layout and that finished it for me!
I hope you liked this layout and make sure to check out the shop for the pretty new collections! Christmas is coming soon and there are already Christmas goodies in the shop, so if you are planning your December Daily out, its a great time to start shopping!!

scrappy Saturday-Fall nap time- SpiegleMomScraps DT

Good morning everyone!! Sarah here to share with you another fall themed layout using some awesome sequins!

My youngest son is a goof to the max and when it started getting cool here this year, he curled up in a chair with his hat on and a few blankets and took a good long, snuggled up nap. He always loves the cool weather cause he likes to be all curled up in blanket and beanies! lol So that was the photo I decided to scrap. I pulled out some stuff from my stash and started to play.
So, some how I had managed to get a black squigle on the side of my cardstock and instead of tossing it or covering it up, I decided to add it in as part of the layout and added black outlining to the papers on the layout, I was happy with the way it turned out.

I added some different sized squares to the background and popped the picture and its photo mat up, to add a little dimension. I did the background with the larger pieces of paper, because I knew I wasnt going to add a ton to this layout. I started know where I wanted the focus to be and adding the large squares, still allowed me to have multiple colors and patterns showing the way I wanted. After I had the papers and photo where I wanted, I moved on to adding some embellishments.

I started by adding a tag to the left of the photo and then moved to the right of the photo and made a cluster there too. Since my son was napping in this picture, I went through Crate papers, Wonder collection and pulled embellishments that had to do with sleep. I added one that said Dream over to the right with a few other things, including a cork ampersand.
I added my title to the left of the photo and then started on a embellishment cluster. I started out with the little clock and layered in some tags and a cute little heart. I added a few word phrases from a Tim Holtz pack that I had and then pulled out my pretties! I pulled out Be true 2 you sequin mim and Shooting cork stars and went to town!! I placed them across the entire top of the layout and moved down to the bottom, thinning them out to one point at the end.
I absolutely love the way this layout turned out and I hope you enjoyed it too!!

Scrappy Saturday- Fall Fave-SpiegleMomScraps DT

Good morning everyone!! Sarah here this morning sharing a new layout with you that I scrap lifted from the lovely Kelly Barron. And this is the layout that I chose to use.

For my layout, I decided that I would flip the layout where the picture was over on the left side because in my picture my hubby is looking towards the right.

I pulled out Oakley Avenue, a fall collection from Pretty little Studios. I thought it went perfect with the photo and the pretty Ferris Wheel sequins and the Just Beachin it sequins went perfectly with this collection!

I started my layout by piecing together the layers of paper behind the photo to get that cluster going. I wanted to make sure I had a place to journal, I knew Kelly had used a card with a little camera on it, so I decided to make that a journaling spot on my layout. This was a fall layout, so I thought it would look good with some leaves on it, so I cut out a few with my Silhouette and tucked them in here and there and instead of scallops on the side of the photo layers I use some of the arrow stickers from this collection.

I added two paper strips to the bottom and top like Kelly did and then started to add embellishments there too. I added a little cut apart at the top that says Feeling Fallish, I cut out a few little leafs from one of the papers in the collection and added those tucked in too along with some stickers.

I moved to the bottom of the layout and tucked in a few more leafs and started on one of my favorite parts.... Adding the bling!! I added a mix of the two sequin sets from the bottom left up to the top right and that finished my layout for me!
I hope you enjoyed this layout and remember if your looking to get some more sequins added to your scrappy stash, mention my name in the comment section during check out and get an extra 15% off your order!! Happy Scrapping!!
