I am scrapbooking a photo of my boyfriend and I last winter on a trip we took to Utah with our family. I love this photo, the mountains behind us are beautiful. For my layout today I began with White American Crafts Textured Cardstock as my background. I used another sheet of the to cut out two snowflakes on my Silhouette Cameo. I colored the snowflakes with a combination two of my favorite Shimmerz Mists. I used Heidi Ho Blue and Blue Jeans.
I then added a few layers of patterned paper behind my photo. I used a 6×6 Heidi Swapp Paper Pad. I scattered around sequins from the Classic Cozy sequin mix as well as some Cork Stars which I layered with the silver stars from the Holly Berries sequin mix.
I also used the Aqua Heart Felties above and under my photo. I used American Crafts Silver glitter thickers in the Cecily font to write out my tittle as well as some aqua glitter tape underneath my tittle.
I love how this turned out.

Hello friends! Welcome to another fun Spiegelmom Scraps Blog Hop. Today is the third and final day of our Special Triple Blog Hop weekend. It has been such a fun and inspiring weekend. You should have arrived here from Sara’s Blog, I love her work. She is incredibly talented. Here is the full line up for today:

Rachel Stewart-
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.

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.
