Guest Designer at SpiegelMom Scraps - My Girl and a Video!

Hey there crafty friends! I'm super excited to be Guest Designing today at the SpiegelMom Scraps Blog - what an honor! Today, I'm sharing a layout that I made of my youngest daughter, Erica, when she was just a year old. Wow - time flies - she's now almost 5!

I started off using a sketch from the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine website and layered papers and stickers from the Echo Park Petticoats and Pinstripes collection by Lori Whitlock. I just love these papers, and the pretty sequins from the Pinky Pie, Spring Blooms and Let's Be Mermaids Sequin Mixes from the SpiegelMom Scraps Shop were the perfect embellishments! I love using a sketch as a starting point, then choosing my photos, papers and embellishments.

These wonderful Cork Chevrons are so awesome for layering! I pulled out some paper ephemera diecuts from a My Mind's Eye All Things Girl package to add to my layout. I love the vintage feel of these diecuts!

I used the tiny silver stars from the Pinky Pie collection on this pretty crown, which I layered over a sticker from the EP collection pack. I added some handwritten journaling and stamped the date with an Amy Tan date stamp. I love that a lot of the paper packs come with coordinated journaling cards in them. Even if I choose not to use them in a pocket page, they are great to use on a layout!

These sweet little flower sequins in the Pinky Pie Sequin Mix were just perfect to layer on the flower sticker. They are subtle and add a pretty shine! You can see some of the stitching that I added across my page. Erica was very excited to #1 - have another layout of her own baby pics and #2 - help me with the stitching!

I've created a video for you to see my process over at YouTube. You can click here or watch below.

Here's a look at the beautiful embellishments I used on my layout, which you can find at the SpiegelMom Scraps Shop:
