Katty Miranda—– You are here!🙂
For my card I began with a brown cardstock base which I cut down slightly smaller than 5×7. I then cut a pink and white striped patterned paper from the Cocoa Vanilla Love Always collection lightly smaller. I cut out two long rectangles along the white portions and added a layer of acetate so that I could create a shaker card.  I then added foam adhesive to the back of the whole card. I added some mint colored trim to the bottom rectangle and I filled the top one with the lovely Mocha Mint Dream Sequin Mix.
I then placed a piece of American crafts white textured yardstick behind the rectangles to close them off. Between the layers I added a piece of a White Lace paper doily peeking out form both sides. For my sentiment, I pulled out a wood veneer from my stash that says Thankful and I heat embossed it, top half white and bottom half in a copper color. I love how it turned out. Very nice and simple.
Next you’ll be headed to Evi’s Blog. Be sure to hop along! If you loose your way start at the beginning on the Spiegelmom Scraps Blog.
Thanks so much for stopping by! XOXO- Katty

Katty Miranda——You are here

For my layout  I began with American Crafts White Textured Cardstock . I used a Teresa Collins triangle stencil with some Acrylic Gloss Medium. This created a subtle embossed look on my cardstock. I flipped the stencil around and placed the stencil over the Gloss medium background. I made sure to place it over the areas where there were no triangles. I used three of my favorite Shimmerz DazzlerzDreamscicleTutti Frutti and Sea U in the Mornin.

I then printed a series of 3 photos of my adorable niece and cut them into triangle shapes. I backed my photos with some mint colored scotch washi tape which I placed on white cardstock as well as a gray and white patterned paper from an old Studio Calico Paper Pad.

I added a few embelishments from my stash mainly from the My Minds Eye on Trend Collection. Some of the triangle pieces of ephemera I made into shaker triangles using the new beautiful Mocha Mint Dream Sequins.

I also used some ephemera words from the same collection for my tittle. I just added the die cut words to some velum and traced them with a black sharpie pen. I also added a tag from my stash behind it. I added some tangled mint thread in three areas and I finished off my layout with the new thin Chunky Cork Stars and the Chunky Cork Hearts, to half of the hearts I added Gold Stardust Sequins.

For my layout I began with 12×12 American Crafts White Textured Cardstock. I am scrapbooking a photo of my adorable niece being her silly self. I had a thought of an all white layout. I began by creating a fun unique background with a stencil and Gloss Medium. While the gloss medium was wet I sprinkled some of the beautiful Glass Slippers Sequins on top and let them dry with the gloss medium.

As a photo mat I used one of the White Lace Paper Doilies and a Large Glassine Bag which I folded on one end so create some texture. I decided to bring some grey, silver and light pink into the mix.

I added a few sticker embellishments from my stash which I placed on some fun foam and then fussy cut out. I also scattered around some of the Felt-Fetti Hearts in white and two of the new colors, light and dark grey.


I also added the silver stars from the Alma Mater Sequin Mix and the light Pink ones from the Mocha Mint Dream Sequin Mix. I added my tittle using  a silver word from a Thickers pack and I also used some of the silver arrows and hearts from that pack.

I added some silver ink splatters and some detailing with a dark grey American Crafts pen. Finally, I matted the whole layout on a Grey and white Patterned Paper from the Pink Paislee Bella Rouge paper pad.

For my layout, I began with American Crafts White Textured Cardstock. I used a Teresa Collins diagonal stripe stencil with the Sea U in the Morning Shimmerz Dazzlerz. I am using patterned papers from the Fancy Pants Attwell Collection. I used a few different patterns with the awesome heart cut file created by our very own Khristina Sorge last month. I placed the cut hearts over the stenciled diagonal striped and I used one of the diagonal black and white patterned papers from the collection to mat the whole layout.

I used a few sheets of patterned paper and a piece of velum to mat my photo. I am scrapping a photo of my boyfriend and myself on a winter trip we took last year to Park City Utah. I added my tittle right on the photo using the puffy stickers from the Attwell collection. I also added 3 flair badges to the bottom left from the collection.

I added some sequins in the hearts, I used red ones from the  Believe in You Sequins, blue ones from the Magical Day in the Park Sequins and yellow ones from the Sunny Smiles Sequin Mix.
