Jenn Gagne scraplift: Happy vacation | SMS DT

Hello everyone! Happy Saturday 🙂

Here I am sharing another layout for the Spiegelmom scraps design team.

This month The DT members are scraplifting Jenn Gagne! She is this month guest designer. You should check her projects on her social media!

Youtube and instagram: @ kaezmum | blog:

I decided to scraplift her style, I love her colorful layouts- its so much fun to look at.

I used 2 pattern paper from Maggie Holmesw ‘Carousel’ collection:

Cotton candy and Rosepark

Because there are so much colors in this paper, I used gesso in the center of the paper and smudged the edges to mute the colors, so my center piece can stand out.


I used my Shimmers (colorings: well blue me down, no yoking | vibez: glorious day), Prima (color bloom: sunshine) and Heidi swapp (color shine: mint) to make splatters on my layout.



I mainly used Maggie holme’s collection ‘Carousel’ with Crate paper to make this layout. for bits and pieces I used puffy stickers from Elle’s studio and cardstock + chipboard stickers from Freckled fawn. I love how all the embellishments come together to make this festive look.


For my title I used this small ticket which has the word ‘ Happy’ written, then I completed my title using this gold glitter foam stickers from the same collection.


And the last I thing I’m going to add to my layout, to make it even more festive, is my Spiegelmom scraps sequins! I’m using water lilies sequins

Hey guys!

Happy Saturday! 🙂  want to share with you a pink mix media layout I made for the Sparklers design team on Spiegelmomscraps!

I used a white textuted cardstock from American crafts and primed my layout with gel medium from Maimer. Once it’s dry I started mixing colors and splatters.

This is what I used:

# Shimmerz coloringz- pink stilletos and pretty in pink

# Adirondack’a color wash- red pepper

# Heidi Swapp’s color shine- pink

# Ranger paint dabber- pink gumball

I want to create bubbles so I used the paint dabber cup by applying the color on the cup and stamping it on my layout.

I wanted to create stars on my layout with some dark color to five the layout a little bit of contrast, I used my copic marker blue green.

I felt it was enough contrat so I used 3 black starts from Shimelle’s sticker foam sheet from her “little by little” collection.

To  back my photo I used bright colors pattern papers to match the colorful shirt I was wearing in this photo.

IMG_8269 copy

I wanted to make a cluster of banners behind my photo, so I cut different sizes of banners from my scraps. This is a great way to use your scraps!

From Spiegel mom scraps I used Honor guard and salt of the earth sequins, giving my layout a pop of red and white colors.

I didn’t want to use over embellish my layout, so I added few bits on my layout.

This is how the layout look:

It was really simple and easy layout, I hope I inspired you to make your own kind of layout!

SpiegelMom Scraps blog (Jody)

Sheryl Banares Briker >>>>you are here<<<<<

I chose to make strings using different sequins, I wanted it o have different shapes and sizes. Spiegelmom scraps has lots of sequins in different shapes and in lovely colors. My color theme for this layout is PINK!
This is the list of sequins I used:
– mini sequins- pink shells
– Salt of the earth
– Water lilies
– On pointe
For the background I used textured white cardstock and played with my mists to create this pinkish mix media look.
I used Heidi swapp: color shine pink and bronzer, Prima: color bloom tangerine, Shimmerz colorings: pink stilletos, pretty in pink and acritonez: pinkadelic and for the final touch I used Mister huey’s white mist.
I wanted to create banners so I can adhere the strings of sequins on top.
I used papers from 6×6 paper pad Pinkpaislee “Oh my heart” and Crate paper ” Hello love”.
I thought that I was finish with the layout, but I knew something was missing… embellishments!
So to embellish my layout I used my stash, since I have so many!!! I need to use them when I can on my layouts.
and this this the result>>>

She used her cutfile to create this summer light layout, I really loved the colors and it inspired me to make my own verion 🙂

For pattern paper I used Elle’s Studio wood grain pattern paper from her “Live laugh love” collection and to matte my photo I used pattern paper from Cocoa vanilla “Wild at heart” collection.

For embellishments I used mostly from the embellishment pack of Elle’s studio and the rest are mix from my stash- Clique kits, Pinkfresh studio and Freckled Fawn.

For the title I hand lettered the word ” Believe and then transferred it to the silhouette studio. I used Shimmerz colorings in blue shades to achieve the blue gradient color on the word. I love how it turned out!

For final touch, I added sequins from Spiegelmom scraps:

  • “Fairy Garden”
  • “Ferris wheel”
  • “Stars pangled”

and this is my layout:

Scraplift Shimelle | SMS DT

Hello eveyone!

I’m back with another layout for the Spiegelmom scraps’ DT.

This week we are scraplifting Shimelle, I was super excited that we got her this week.

I love her collections and her layouts and especially her process videos!

I went with this layout:

Screen Shot 2017-08-18 at 10.18.46 PM

I love using geometric shapes so I wanted  to make own version of the heart cut file she used in this layout.


I used 3 pattern paper from the “Oasis” collection by Crate paper to back my cutfile’ I went with pink and more subtle colors so it won’t take over the layout.

For my background I used this navy pattern paper with small pink triangles from the same collection. I think the navy color is a good choice here because of the contrast it give the layouts, it pops the heart shape.

IMG_8070 copy

I used mix embellishments form differents brands form my stash (Shimelle, Pinkpaislee,Pinkfresh studio and Maggie holmes).

IMG_8072 copy

For the finishing touches I used two sets of sequins from Spiegelmom scraps:

-” Girly glitter” –

-“Sweet summer vibes”-

This combination gave my layout a pop of pink on my layout.

IMG_8075 copy

In this layout I tried journaling like she did on her layout, I used my Sakura white gel pen, it turned out ok. I’m not a fun of journaling in my layouts but I gave it a go anyway 🙂

This layout was super easy to make. I hope I encouraged you in creating this kind of layout 🙂
