Scrapping Wonders Blog Hop

Hello Hello! I have another new project and blog hop for you today! I am hopping along with the rest of the DT from Scrapping Wonders…if you have never heard of Beth’s shop and her amazing travelers notebook inserts be sure to hop along for some fun, artisitc inspiration! ( and then, when you need one of these gorgoues books for yourself…you can grabone right here…HERE)

We have a wonderful sponser this month..Columbus Road Prints! She makes the perfect decor injust the right sizes for you Travelers NOtebooks ( You can find her shop HERE ) She provided the Design Team with some super cute stickers and cards to play with!

For my project, I chose to work in my watercolor insert which I use as an art journal. I received a set of coffee – themed stickers in gorgeous shades of brown and a lovely purpley color!


My background was created using a variety of Distress Inks and multiple stamps from my stash!


I love the effect I got when I paired Distress reinker in Vintage Photo with the brand new Distress Oxides in Seedless Preserves…such a fun effect and perfect for my coffee stickers and photo..


I hope you have enjoyed my art journal spread today! Be sure to check out the process video on my You Tube Channel which will be up later today!

As part of this hop, we are playing a little game of 2 truths and a lie…

Sparklers Unite September Hop With Special Guest Raquel Anderson!


Hello Hello! Welcome to my stop on the blog hop this month! You simply MUST check out the new releases in the shop if you havent…cause *swoon*

I could not decide which sequins to work with first…so I let my photo be my guide. I chose a very recent photo that I just absolutely love of my youngest son with our golden, Molly. I chose to use Lisa’s Starry Night, lots of Shimmerz products (you can find them in the store HERE ), and the new Boys Fort collection from Pinkfresh Studio.

I love how my background turned out using the textured AC cardstock from the shop…It gave my brush strokes a little extra texture that I just love!…Check out this close-up!


So cool!

And I have a very special guest blogger joining me for this hop! Say hello to fellow sparkler Raquel Anderson! And if you are on IG and love scrappy posts, be sure to follow her there too..she is @crazytapelady Take it away Raquel!

Hey everyone! Today I’m a guest on Sara’s blog to share with you my take on this month’s Artsy theme! I used the Tar Tar Acritonez to make a mixed media background, which I haven’t done in a while and it was fun! I scattered the Ferris Wheel sequin mix around as well as added it to the little shaker pockets I made with a special Fuse envelope pocket set.
So fun! I also stuffed in some gold stars sequins because who doesn’t love gold sequins?!  I added some of the Acritonez to a white felt heart to give it more of an artsy look! And of course scattered some cork stars around for added texture. I love how all the elements go with the whimsy of the Carousel collection!
I hope you all have a wonderful September and we can’t wait to show you our other projects coming this month!

Thank you so much for stopping by to visit us today! Be sure to visit all the blogs and leave comments today and tomorrow for a chance to win all the new gorgeous September release sequins!

From here you are headed over to Ali Scraps and I know she has something awesome in store for you! Her projects are just lovely!!

Have A Lovely Day!

Fab Friday With Spiegelmom Scraps!

Hello Hello! I hope you are all enjoying your Friday! Right before I sat down to create this week’s layout, I had a lovely new collection, Aint’ Life Grand by Pretty Little Studio (designed by Ashley Horton) arrive and I KNEW I was going to sit down and create a layout with it right away! I found the perfect embellishments from the Spiegelmom Scraps shop and away I went…and I dug into my stash too, so I could create SHAKER CLOUDS! IMG_20170405_083834.jpg

I love how sweet, and summery this layout feels, even if this photo was taken during a brief warm-up we had in February. And, yes, the photo isnt the most perfect..but that smile sure is!

Spiegelmom Scraps And Creative Embellishments Product Swap!


Hello Hello!

Welcome to my stop along the way on this GINORMOUS hop! So big! To keep you moving and on your way, I will keep it brief!

If you’ve never stopped to visit me before, my name is Sara! You can find me lots of places on the interwebs and you can find links to all my social media accounts here, on my blog.

For my layout, I chose to use these gorgeous southwest/cowboy themed chipboard pieces and I paired them with TWO of the brand new releases from Spiegelmom Scraps, the CORK CLOUDS (*swoon*) and the new ombre sequin mix called Pandora’s Ombre. For the rest of my layout, I used my February Clique Kit, which features the One Canoe Two collection Hazelwood. I sprayed some beautiful Goldie Lox Vibez on my chipboard…its a little hard to see in the photos but in real life, they sparkle and shimmer gold!


….and some close-ups…




The next stop on the hop is Frances…I’m sure she has a lovely project to share with you as well..

My Counterfeit Kit…and lots of Videos!

Hello Hello!

So this month (February) I played along with The Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog…not the challenges necessarily, just created a stash kit and got to killing it!

I have gotten 3 layouts done so far…but since I use my stash kit each month till the 15th/16th of each month, I will make plenty more..

Here is a video showing my kit and explaining my “stash management” routine-

And here are the 3 layouts (and coordinating process videos) I’ve created so far…



And, last…but certainly NOT least…


The Counterfeit Challenge Blog is a great resource for creating a stash kit each month and helping you to use up what you have! I keep a relatively small stash and I use my stash kits each month to help move through the things I buy…..

Have A Lovely Day!
