March 2016 Pep Rally H*LL Yeah!

Welcome to my project for the 2016 Pep Rally for the March Kit Hell Yeah! If you were linking from the awesome blog of Hannah Lemieux then you've landed at the right place, if you were just checking to see what I was up to, then I have a surprise for you! 

I am so happy to be sharing a project with you today! I took a bit of a break from blogging, but not from creating. Mostly I've been making cards this year and I'm so excited about the diecuts that came in this kit! They are EXCLUSIVE to Clique Kits (there are some available for purchase in the Clique Kits Store Here.)
The colors in this kit are so fresh they make my mouth water, and I loved the gold crepe paper so much! I've never seen any before and I was so happy I had enough to make this embellishment for my card!  This year I have some lovely things happening in my family circle and I'm so glad I can make cards to celebrate these events. I think my next project from this kit is going to be a mini album for a special baby that's on the way!

Here is my project for today:

Be sure to check out everyone's project! There will be a prize!!!

Bring on the Sparkle 2015!

Welcome to the Bring on the Sparkle Blog Hop!!! I'm so happy you could stop by! I've been Holiday Crafting like a crazy person, both paper crafting and knitting my brains out! I'm having a lovely time and I'd LOVE to show you what I made with my supplies from SpiegelMomScraps Shop. I want to start by telling you that I did my best to make things that WOULDN"T photograph!! LOL! I got a Fuse Tool this year when Jody got them in at the shop, and It's really made itself known over this holiday season! I LOVE this thing!! I decided my project for the hope would be some simple but lovely shaker tags to go on little gifts for my co-workers. The trick with these tags is to get a photo with little to no glare... I think I did ok. I used lots of different things from the shop and combined it with my xmas stash which currently includes rub-ons from the Shimelle Christmas Collection and lots of the Get Happy Christmas Collection from 2014 by Gossamer Blue. I already know that the EZ Grand Runner will attach these to the gifts I have to go with them, I just need to get them together! Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope I have inspired you.

Supplies used from SMS
Fuse Tool
Medium Shipping Tags
Bakers Twine (It comes in Assorted Colors but I used the Red and White)
Sequins in the follwing colors and mixes:
Blizzard, Poppin' Pink Flurries, Rockin' Red Stardust, Gold Stardust, Holiday Happiness, Cinnamon and Sugar, Fairytale

Hannukah oh Hannukah 2015!

So far this has been a lovely holiday season. I finally got my Hanukkah Cards out to family. And we have been busy eating jelly donuts, lighting candles and having latkes!

I was given the opportunity to work with the Hanukkah Special Edition kit from Clique Kits, and these are the cards I made:

LOVE these papers, had to use layers and tags on all these cards!

That American Crafts Vellum is yummy, it does have a number 9 on it, but I just covered it up!

This one is my favorite card! I used the Lawn Fawn Stamp with some Ranger embossing ink both in Patina and Gold. Really enjoying the gold twine, and there is a full pack so I have plenty more to play with. I'm going to print out some of my favorite candle lighting pics to go with the leftovers. I don't have any full sheets, but tons of stuff is left!

Welcome to the SpiegelMomScraps Holiday Hop 2015!

Thanks for stopping by today! I'm so excited to share my shaker card with you! I've been hoarding a frozen/fairtale sequin mix from this summer so I could make an awesome Hanukkah card! I was so excited when I saw those new cork stars! Sigh, so chunky and lovely... and I'm going to mod some of them to use in another project so be sure and check back!

I used a variety of white, blue and white sequins along with the cork stars. The shaker is really the focus of my card, I didn't feel like it needed much more! Be sure and stop by all the blogs on the hop, it's the perfect length for a during the week hop! Use code Charity15 for a discount at the shop! I'm linking to all the sequins HERE and the cork stars HERE but be sure and check everything out, she has the best stuff for making your gifts extra special!

Tapestry in a Planner, welcome to the Pep Rally!

This is a very special time of year for me. Thanksgiving has been my favorite holiday for many years.  It was always a time when family got together and there was everyone's favorite food (ahem, dessert) and no pressure for anything except to take home leftovers. I cut into this lovely kit to decorate my planner this month. I LOVE the happy gleaming gold accents! Check this out!

I believe in Rainbows

My instagram has been really busy this month with the Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge. I've been having tons of fun, but really haven't made many projects, just practicing my coloring. But last night I finally got around to making a page from a photo that's been waiting on me. I started out by gathering up some Shimelle items I've had hoarded (and I've recently picked up some new stuff recently). I knew before getting started that I wanted to use that rainbow heart paper, it's vellum and so lovely! I tried it out on several other background papers and while I loved it on lots of things, it needed something to keep those hearts from drowning on another pattern and white cardstock just was not cutting it. So I found this awesome specialty paper covered in gold hearts along the bottom. The Keller paper is that awesome paper with bright hearts in pink on pink from the original collection, but on the back there is a section that is a soft gray so that is what I used to emphasize the heart vellum. I love how it looks, especially because where it isn't backing you can see the smaller heart print on my background paper behind it. I matted the photo with the paper called Frappe from the True Stories collection, the reverse side of this lovely navy print has cameras on it. I combined stickers from both collections and used some of the cut apart sheet from True Stories called Latte for page accents. I puzzled for a bit over what to put my journalling on, then I just took some white cardstock and cut out a half a heart shape and used Fossilized Amber Distress ink to make it a lovely yellowy color, I used water to distress the ink a bit, then journalled on my block. Those lovely red glitter Thickers in the Fitzgerald Font combined with tile letters from the Shimelle Collection stickers make my title. I really love how this turned out.

I'm editing a video on pulling this layout together so stay tuned to my youtube channel :)!
