Katty  You are here! 🙂

For today’s blog hop you should have arrived here from ___Ka___ .  Ka’s style is so inspiring to me. She is truly very talented.

For today’s project I created a fun 12×12 Layout inspired by this months mood board on a Facebook Group my friend Evi And I created The Pretty Patterned Paper Playground.


I was able to use so many fun products from the Spiegelmom Scraps Shop on this layout! I began by using my Michaels watercolors to add some color the Mini Wood Clothespins from the shop. My idea was to create 3 big flowers using the clothespins. I did lay them on their side so that they’d be a bit less dimensional. I used a dark pink, coral and orange color. I picked the colors based on some of the sequin mixes from the shop. My next step was to take 3 White Lace Paper Doilies. I used the doilies as a stencil and used my watercolors over them to create a pretty doily pattern in the three colors I chose. I then placed the clothespins over the doily pattern and adhered them with glue dots. I wanted to add some sparkle with some lovely sequins from the Spiegelmom Scraps Shop. On the Orange “flower” I used the Indian Summer Sequins. On the dark pink “flower” I used the Fairytale 2 Sequins and on the Coral one I used the Peachy Sherbet Sequins. In the center of all my “flowers” I added 5 yellow sequins from the Believe in You Sequins and in the very center a grey sequin from the Mint Chip Sequins. I then added some leaves with a Heidi Swapp Stencil and the awesome Shimmerz Dazzlerz in Sour Apple.

To finish it off I added a few simple embellishments. I added one of the White Lace Paper Doilies that I had previously colored. I also added three of the Cork Chevrons and a “Beautiful” Wood veneer rectangle from the Shimelle True Stories Wood Veneer. To complete my tittle I used some gold Maggie Holmes typewriter font alphas and sprinkled some Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine. I used 2 sheets of patterned paper from the Heidi Swapp Hello Today paper pad. A yellow polka dot to mat my photo and a diagonal rainbow strip to add a border to my whole page.


It is always such fun to play with the Spiegelmom Scraps Shop products. Here is my finished layout.
