Summer Magnetic Bookmarks

Hello friends! I'm here with a tutorial on making some fun Summer magnetic bookmarks! My daughter is an voracious reader so every Summer I get her a handful of books to read over Summer break. This year I thought I would make her some bookmarks to go with those books.

Lori has a lot of fun and cute Summer files to choose from. I chose Popsicle (Lori's shop, Silhouette Store) , Ice Cream Cone ( Silhouette Store), and Watermelon Shaped Card (Lori's shop, Silhouette Store).

I opened the 3 Popsicles file to show you how to take a cut and make it into a fold over bookmark.

To get the basic shape of the popsicle, I opened the Trace option and highlighted the shape and clicked on "trace outer edge". That will give me the entire shape of the popsicle to create the base of the bookmark.

Then I duplicated the shape, flipped it vertically, aligned it with one above the other, and then welded both pieces together. After I cut that piece out, all I have to do is fold it in half and add the decorative top layer.

If you would rather try your hand out with something a little easier you could always use one of Lori's card svg files.

Now comes the easiest part of this tutorial and that's adding magnetic strips to the insides of the bookmarks. I have a roll of sticky back magnetic strips so I just cut a couple of pieces off and added them to each one.

And now comes the funnest part of this tutorial and that's decorating each bookmark.

I used some stickers and die cuts from Lori's new I Love Summer collection to make my bookmarks pretty! That's all from me today! Hope everyone is having a great Summer!

A Dream Come True

Hello to all! I am so happy to say that I have finally started scrapbooking pictures from our Disney World trip from last summer. This is one of my favorite pictures that I got of my daughter and I knew it would be the first I wanted to document. Once I pulled out these papers, I knew the Spring Break sequin mix from SpiegelMom Scraps would be a perfect match.

I used the 2 different colored blue sequins to outline the castle door. I really love the way this turned out!

After using a star stencil on my white cardstock background, I added some of the star sequins from the mix to give it some extra bling.

The next place I used some of the sequins was on the cluster of diecuts which turned out to be just the thing I needed to finish off my layout. That's the best thing about sequins, they always add the right touch to make a layout or card feel complete!

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you enjoy my layout and some of the ways I use my SpiegelMom Scraps sequins!

Let Your Light Shine card

Happy Wednesday to all! I'm here with you today sharing a sequin filled card that features the SpiegelMom Scraps Rose Gold Glory and Moon Rising sequin mixes. Instead of making a shaker card I decided to glue sequins down flat inside a shape on my card. 

I cut out a light bulb shape from my pattern papers with my Silhouette and traced the shape onto my cardbase. The top part of the light bulb is filled in with the Rose Gold Glory pink sequins and the bottom part is filled with the gray sequins from Moon Rising sequin mix. Then I adhered the pattern paper to the cardbase with some foam tape and added a few more sequins from the Rose Gold Glory mix along with a sentiment. 

That's all from me today! Hope everyone is enjoying their Summer and remember to let your light shine!

SMS Father's Day shaker card

Happy Wednesday everyone! I'm here with you today sharing a Father's Day shaker card that is great for any father depending on which papers you use such as fisherman, grill master, hunter, mechanic, sports nut, or just an all around awesome dad. I used Spiegel Mom Scraps Earthy Treasure and Into The Woods sequin mixes for my card but I feel the colors in these mixes pretty much match any of the Father's Day collections out there.

I love how these 2 mixes blend perfectly and the wood hearts that say "love". The hearts are part of the Earthly Treasure mix. I glued them down so they don't move around so Dad always knows that he is loved!
That's all from me today! I want to wish an early Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there!
