SpiegelMom Scraps September New Release Blog Hop!

Hi crafty friends! I am so excited to share the new release sequins with you from SpiegelMom Scraps!! We are having a fun blog hop to celebrate and here's a look at the sparkly goodness you are definitely going to want to check out! If you arrived here from Ali's blog, you are in the right place, and if you want to start from the beginning you can head to the SpiegelMom Scraps blog

I just couldn't pick one beautiful sequin mix to work with, so I mixed and matched to add bling and embellish this wonderful traveler's notebook that I made while I was on a Wild Whisper Hike in July. This is the first time I've done a traveler's notebook, and I love it!! These sequins were the perfect embellishments to coordinate with my photos and paper and add that extra bit of bling and pizzazz to my project 💗
Here's the cover. After stamping on a manilla tag with the Wild Whisper stamps and Distress Oxide Inks I added my embellishments, sequins and burlap string.

On the first page inside I stamped, added Wild Whisper journaling cards and stamps, and used a little glassine envelope to add some of the grass we picked on our hike.

On the next page I used Distress Oxide Inks to sponge colour across a Wild Whisper journaling card and then added coordinating sequins along the edge! I decided to add some quotes that I found online beside the photos I took.

A Tim Holtz stencil in the background added yellow to this page along with the pretty Gold Burlap String and pops of yellow sequins in the Water Lilies mix.

I layered some photos over papers and the "K" index card divider. We each got a divider with our initial on it! I wrote a hand lettered 'selfie' sentiment and added some of the sweet orange flowers from the Peachy Keen and Aquarius sequin mixes.

On the last page I completed I added some Gelatos to my page and layered on the 150. It was Canada's 150th birthday this year, so I wanted to make sure to document that in my book. The tiny stars from the Lisa's Starry Night mix was perfect to add some celebratory bling to my numbers. I had so much fun making this traveler's notebook, and I know I'll definitely be playing around with this more.
The sequin mixes I used are Lisa's Starry Night, Water Lilies, Aquarius, Morning Glow, Painted Gardens, Peachy Keen and On Pointe. You can find them all in the SpiegelMom Scraps Shop - and don't forget to use the code KARLA15 to save 15% off your purchases!!
