SpiegelMom Scraps Sunday Funday with Daisie: Giraffe Family

Hey everyone!  I'm back with another layout for the SpiegelMom Scraps YouTube channel.  The new September sequin mixes are out and based on famous pieces of artwork.  The Sparklers are using artwork as their inspiration for the month of September. 

I did a Pinterest search for a giraffe.  Crazy right?  Not like me.  I had 2 pictures, one of my daughter as a giraffe with a Snapchat filter and one with us posed by a giraffe statue.  So a giraffe seemed logical.  Here is the one I decided on.

Unfortunately I was unable to track this back to the original artist.  It does have a signature on the side that I think says Ester S. but I can't see it very clearly.  I loved the patchwork quality of this and the colors.  Its just what I was looking for.  Here is what I created with it.

I'm in love with this!!  I free-handed a giraffe shape, traced it with tracing paper, and pieced all of the scraps together.  I used 9 different sequin mixes (On Pointe, Aquarius, Lisa's Starry Night, Painted Gardens, Peachy Keen, Water Lilies, Gone With The Wind, Black Tie Event, & Just Beachin It).  I also used Shimmerz Coloringz in Night Moves and Pink Stilettos and Shimmerz Vibez in Jeni Be Bleu.  I added minimal layers and only a title.  I didn't want to take away from the amazing giraffe!  I really love this!

Here is the link to the video.  Please check it out!  Then head over to the SpiegelMom Scraps Blog and Instagram to see what the other Sparklers are up to!

Stuck?! Sketches Design Team Submission

Hello everyone!!  I'm here to share a layout that I created using the August 1st sketch from Stuck?! Sketches.  I am also using this layout as my submission to the Stuck?! Sketches design team.  I was really stuck creatively when I started this layout.  The sketch was the perfect boost to get me going.  It gave me the perfect start that I needed.  It took that thinking out of the process and let me just be creative.

 This is the gorgeous sketch created by the talented Laura Whitaker.  I love her sketches.  They have the perfect amount of detail and really get my creativity flowing.  Here is the layout I created using this sketch:

I used Crate Paper papers from the Hello Love and Cute Girl collections.  I love these collections!  The die cut pieces are from the Fancy Pants Joy Parade collection.  The bow is Maggie Holmes Carousel from the August Cocoa Daisy kit.  The sequins are from SpiegelMom Scraps and are from the Wild & Free and Sweet Summer Vibes sequin mixes.  The mixed media in the background was created using a Hero Arts stencil with Raspberry Sherbert Shimmerz Paste-eez.  I also sprinkled some Shimmerz Coloringz in Night Moves.

I created a YouTube process video for this too.  Please go check it out!  Like and subscribe while you're there!

What I've been working on...

Hi everyone!  I know I said I was back to blogging..... but I decided that taking the summer off isn't a bad thing.  It's really hard right now to blog, post on YouTube, post on Instagram, and Facebook.  So for the summer I am cutting myself some slack.  In a month the kids go back to school and I will have more time for it again.  I figure until then I will post occasional updates on what I have been working on.

My biggest news is that I am on 2 inspirational design teams.  One is a collaboration put together by Alicia (Call Me Crafty Al) where we are given monthly inspiration piece to create what we will with it.  This group includes a variety of paper crafters so the projects completed vary.  We are allowed to create anything we want.  Everyone has to share a video on YouTube showing the project.  I choose to do a complete process video but others just explain their projects.  This is a fun and challenging team!

The second team I was just accepted onto.  It is the Crafty Channel Surf's Something Inspiration Team.  This is a team created by Lea (Scrap and Plan with Lea) for the Crafty Channel Surf's Facebook group.  Each month we will create a project based off of Something Inspirational :)  For example, my first month I will create a layout with something small.  It can be anything based off how I interpret that prompt.  Each DT member will have a different inspiration each month and we will rotate that inspiration.  We will be posting YouTube videos and posting on the Crafty Channel Surf Facebook group.  So look out for that!!

I was able to run an online crop in July.  There is a Facebook group called Shiralee's Online Crop.  This group was created to see who is interested in an online crop.  I volunteered to run one group that was at 10 AM for me.  There was some confusion on the time zones so only one other person attended but it was a lot of fun!!  I was able to scrap for 3 hours with Sue from the UK.  We talked a lot and shared about our scrapbook style, likes/dislikes, and just had fun socializing while we created.  If you are interested follow this link and join the group.  We are looking to have another crop in August.

Other than that, I have been using my typical inspiration to create layouts.  I have my SpiegelMom Scraps weekly layout, Paper Issues challenges, and Stuck?! Sketches.  Because summer is so busy I haven't been scrapping quite as much.  But everything I have created is on Instagram so go check it out!!

I will be back soon with more updates and hope to get back to a more stable schedule in September.  Thanks for visiting!! See you soon :)

Random Scrappy Challenge- Feel Beautiful Today

Hello everyone!  I'm here to share my layout that was created for the Random Scrappy Challenge series on YouTube.  This is a series Marie of Marie's Notes and I created.  This week we were to channel our inner Paige Evans.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE Paige's creations.  They are all so gorgeous!  I can't get enough.  So I decided to take on one of her white on white designs and add pops of color.  Here is what I came up with:

The photos are more SnapChat pics of my older daughter.  She is such a selfie super star!  I love the colors and the softness of the photos.  I took advantage of her looking up in both photos to draw attention to my title die cut.

True to Paige's style, I used hand stitching to outline this butterfly cut file.  This was a free cut file I found but I have no idea where.  I had used the negative space as a stencil to watercolor in the background using Shimmerz paints in Royal Purple, Peacock Plume, and Magenta.  I popped the butterflies up on fun foam and layered in in a way that just allows small amounts of the color to show through.  I love the softness of it!

For embellishments I used the Pink Paislee-Paige Evans-Oh My Heart ephemera pack.  I also used a tiny heart punch to add some glittery silver and magenta hearts.  The silver is glitter cardstock from Michael's and the magenta is glitter washi tape by American Crafts. 

Please head over and check out my video.  Subscribe while you're there so that you did miss out on any of my upcoming videos!  Then click the link in the description box and see what Marie has created!

Hello Everyone!  I'm back!  I wasn't really gone but I haven't been posting on my blog at all.  Sometimes real life gets in the way and I am not able to keep up with everything.  So I had stopped blogging and posting on but kept up with YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook.  But I'm back now.  I am going to try to post more regularly about my scrappy goings on.

With that said, I have my Sparklers design team layout for this week to share.  For the month of July, Spiegelmom Scraps is switching it up every week.  We have different inspiration for each week of the month.  The first week was Emoji Love.  Here is what I created for that:
I used the free cut file from the Spiegelmom Scraps blog.  The sequins I used are the Gotta Love Emojis sequin mix.  I used some Shimmerz paints from my stash for the background.  The background paper is from Pink Paislee-Paige Evans-Take Me Away collection.  The two papers that I backed my photo with is from the Pebbles-Jen Hadfield-Homemade collection.  This is such a fun and colorful layout.  It makes me smile :)

This week is Birthday Celebration week.  We had to scrap a birthday that we normally wouldn't.  For me that's pretty much any birthday!  So here is what I created to celebrate the US birthday :
This is so over the top Fourth of July fun!  I know that there is a spelling error :(  But it doesn't bother me.  I created this layout based on the July 1st sketch from Stuck Sketches. I used the Chunky Cork Stars, Honor Guard sequins, and Stargazer sequins.  The navy and striped papers are from Amy Tangerine Better Together collection.  The red polka dot is from the Echo Park Head Over Heels collection.  I enjoy the red pop it adds.  I used my Silhouette Portrait to cut out the title using fonts from  Last I pulled out my Star Dust Stickles to cover the stars.  That added just the right amount of sparkle to my cork stars.  Considering I dislike creating themed pages, I think I did a fine job!

There are process videos for each of these layout on the Spiegelmom Scraps YouTube channel.  I am loving being on the design team there!  The inspiration is awesome.  The sequins are to die for!  I'm totally hooked!  If you are interested in purchasing any product from the shop you can use my code DAISIE15 to receive 15% off.  Oh I almost forgot!  The felt and cork pieces in the shop are being discontinued so hurry over before they are all gone!

Thanks for visiting!  See you again soon!
