SMS Snow Day!

Happy Wednesday everyone! I'm here today bringing you a snowy, Spiegel Mom Scraps sequin filled title layout! And although we haven't had but a dusting of snow this year, I still wanted to create a snow layout so I could use my Freezin' For A Reason sequins along with Simple Stories Freezin' Season! They are a perfect match! I still had these fun pictures of my DD from a couple of years ago just waiting to be scrapped!

I found this adorable outlined title svg file that I knew would be perfect for either filling with patterned paper and/or sequins. All of those pretty pattered papers really help this title stand out. My favorite is the black and white penguins! Really love how this title turned out! I just love how the sequins shimmer and shine in the light and I felt they really stand out on my layout. 

I also added a few of the sequins to the snow globe because what is a snow globe without a little sparkly snow?!?!

Valentine's Day is almost here...are you ready? This sweet

Valentine Treat Box Tall is quick and easy to assemble and a ton of fun to decorate! These boxes would be a fun project to make with kids. And even though they come with a Valentine sentiment, they could easily be decorated for any holiday or even for birthdays.

You can find this svg in Lori's shop here or in the Silhouette Store here.

For this box, I stuck pretty closely to the exact cut. I added a couple of the puffy stickers from the Simple Stories Kissing Booth collection.

For this box, I used a few of the ephemera pieces from Kissing Booth for the focal point and added some of the adorable puffy stickers.

Happy Winter Snowflake Sequin Card

Hi there! I'm here with you today to share this Winter inspired snowflake card. With Winter hitting a lot of us I felt it only appropriate to put a sparkly spin on the gloomy weather. I used a new sparkly January release on this card...Winter's Mist from Spiegel Mom Scraps.

I started out by using my Silhouette to cut out the snowflake shape from the front panel of my card. Then I traced it onto the front of the white card base with a pencil. The pack of Winter's Mist has some clear sequins and snowflake shaped sequins but I put them aside and only worked with the colored round ones. I glued them inside the traced snowflake on the card base. Then I wrapped some twine around the top of the card and tied a bow. Next I added some double sided foam tape to the back and adhered it with the snowflake cut centered over the sequins.

Lastly, I added my sentiment in the bottom right hand corner and sprinkled some of the snowflake sequins to the bottom right and top left corners of my card.

Hope everyone stays safe and warm!

Trio of LW Valentine's Day Cards

Hello crafty friends! I'm here today to share a brand new set of Valentine's Day cards by Lori Whitlock. I love making Valentine's Day projects and these cards were the perfect thing to make for my 3 kiddos. The best thing about these cards is they came together quickly and I had fun choosing which colors I was going to use for each one. 

Lori has the set of 4 in her shop here. There is also a "Hugs" card in the set. You can also find these sweet cards in the Silhouette Studio here, Valentine Card LoveValentine Card KissValentine Card Hugs, and Valentine Card XOXO.

For each card I just happen to have matching sequins and twine in my stash for each of the colors along with 3 red buttons. I really adore how these fun little cards turned out!

Happy Love Day Valentine card

Hello friends and happy Wednesday! I'm here today to share a super sweet Valentine’s Day card. I love making Valentine projects! Other than Christmas it’s my favorite for crafting. Today my card, Happy Love Day features the Hex-a-Love sequin mix from Spiegel Mom Scraps.

I started off with SVG file Be My Heart Valentine which is for a 12 x 12 layout but I cut it down in my Silhouette Design Studio to fit a 5" x 6 1/2" card. After I had my front panel of the card cut, I backed it with some black patterned paper to make the X's and O's stand out. I then added some ephemera pieces along with the Hex-a-Love sequins. And then assembled my card with some pink pattern paper and red pattern paper.

In this close up you will see that I added some pink paint to the wooden "love" veneer that comes in the Hex-a-Love sequin pack. These wood veneers are beautiful as they come but are so much fun to decorate with different medias!

The Hex-a-Love sequin pack is so much fun to use and it matched perfectly with the Simple Stories Kissing Booth collection!
