Sparkler Squads Unite! SpiegelMom Scraps August Blog Hop



Welcome to August...the time of year for last summer memories and back to school preparations! Where I live in Arizona, my kiddos are going back to school next week already so this week we have Back to School Kick-off Events and Meet the Teacher to attend. I always hope to hold on to just a few more summer memories and adventures throughout August and I hope that the cut files I designed for this month inspire you to soak up the last few rays of summer vacation and adventure as well. You should have arrived here from Hannah's amazing blog after checking out her fun mixed media project and bold, graphic color scheme.

I am SO very excited to be starting as an official Sparkler after being the Guest Designer here last month. I am going to be part of the You Tube Squad which means that every week (Wednesdays for me) you will see a new You Tube video in a series that I am calling Wacky Wednesdays where anything goes, bright colors rock, and new techniques and creative play are always welcome. I will also be contributing a monthly cut file to our blog hops so let me know if you there is something that you would really love to see included by leaving that in the comments below!

My project for today is a Disney layout featuring multiple photos. I left the main focal layout at 4x6 size and then the three supporting photos at 3x3 size. This allowed for a natural location for both my journaling and the title to call home. From the SpiegelMom Scraps store, I used the following sequin packages to find my fun little details: Gold Sweetheart Confetti, Hot Right Now, Believe in You, and Sunny Smiles. I also LOVED working with the Birds of a Feather Felties that are so easy to color coordinate just by using the inks that you already have on hand. Enjoy these photos and make sure to visit my YT Channel to watch the process video that goes with this layout by clicking here.















Thank you for spending your time with us today! I'd love for you to be in the running for the $10.00 shop credit so make sure to leave a comment on each blog to be entered. Don't forget I would love to hear what kinds of things you would like to see included in future cut files!
