December Daily- Day 1-3 Spiegelmom Scraps

Hello friends! I am extremely excited to share my first spread in my December Daily Album. The first three days of the month were pretty uneventful so I was able to combine the three day in a two page spread. I am planning on doing this throughout my album to avoid it getting too chunky. I’ve decided to work mainly with the American Crafts Good Tidings collection. If you’d like to read more about the products I’ve used check out my Blog Post  over on the Spiegelmom Scraps Blog.img_3635-1

There’s also a process video on my YouTube channel. If you’d like to watch.

Thanks so much for stopping by! XOXO -Katty

Mojo Busters: A Scrapbooking Series-Episode 2

Silhouette CameoHello Friends! Welcome back to the second week of Mojo Busters! My Scrappy friends and I have gotten together to create a series which will hopefully provide some inspiration for you when you need it.

This week we are working on Hannah’s challenge. Her challenge is to use a photo as inspiration. In my case, brand new photos, meaning photos recently taken, are my favorite to scrap. Sometimes, I come across an older photo and inspiration strikes. A photo can also inspire you to use things in your stash. Sometimes the colors in a photo can remind us of a specific collection or embellishment we own.

For this challenge I am using a photo of my grandparents. It was taken back in 1956. My mom came across this photo a few weeks ago. My grandparents have both passed and I miss them very much, it only made sense to add photos of them to my albums. I made a copy of the photo, printed it in black and white and got started.

For some reason this photo made me think of of the Love Always collection by Cocoa Vanilla. I used my silhouette cameo to cut out a beautiful heart cut file available  for download from Bea Valint’s Blog. I nestled my photo in between two loops in the heart cut file.

I then created clusters of flowers underneath the photo and the heart. I also incorporated some leaf cut files which I had sitting on my desk. I had cut both the heart and the leaves  on White American Crafts Textured Cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo.

For my tittle, I used some letter wood veneers from my stash and painted them a light grey with some watercolors. I also used the word Love from the Cocoa Vanilla Ephemera Pack.

I love how this turned out. It came together very quickly. The picture really did inspire me. it inspired the feel of my layout as well as the products I used.

I wanted to use one of the awesome free cut files this month. I chose the one with the lovely snowflakes on it.

I used my Silhouette Cameo and cut out all of the snowflakes on American Crafts White textured cardstock. I decided to use the cut outs as well as the negative space. They were both so pretty. I ripped up the page diagonally and added another White Cardstock behind it. I used pieces of the White Lace Paper Doilies where the edges met.

 I added a blue piece of Patterned Paper, which I think may have been from an old MME paper pad and placed it behind the open snow flakes. I used the Shimmerz Oh say Can U Sea Coloringz and colored some of the snowflakes with a brush.I added the same blue patterned paper to the centers.

I did some simple layers behind my photo and added strips of a fuchsia Heidi Swapp Patterned Paper to the right and bottom of the layout.

I then used the beautiful new Amore Sequin mix and added them to the snowflakes. I added a simple tittle using American Crafts Elm Thickers and a few  simple embellishments from my stash.

This was fun to create. I love the snowflake cut file.
