Today's hop is with the SpiegelMom Scraps design team, so you may have come from the SMS blog and after me, you'll head to Ka's blog. Here's a list of all of the participants, if you get lost!
Crafty Jen Schow (that's me!)
There are a few brand new cut files in my shop and I've teamed them up with some beautiful felties and sequins. The first layout I made uses my new Scribble Floral background, All Grown Up - Girl Print & Cut files, and Pink Lagoon sequin assortment pack.
To be quite honest, I'm not sure how I feel about my color combination here, but I like the photos and the memory is documented. And I'm okay with that.
I cut a bunch of the more transparent sequins in half and created a border along the bottom of my photo layers. I adhered the sequins with some Tim Holtz Matte Multi-Medium, but you could use micro adhesive dots just as easily.
I love the way a background cut file looks laid over some watercolor, and I did that here.
For my other layout, I used one of my new Spring Fresh cut file as a stitching guide for my title and I just love it! It's 8.5 x 11, which is a size that I have been enjoying lately.
I created a line of sequins going from the top to bottom on the right side of my layout. I like to try to make it look kind of "natural" and like the sequins could have just fallen into place.
I used really soft colors for my stitching because I didn't want them to be too bold. I love that it kind of has that soft, pastel, spring-y look.
As I mentioned, be sure to head over to Ka's blog to see what she has created!
