SpiegelMom Scraps: Special Edition Blog Hop: Sequins

Happy Saturday! Welcome to Day Two of the SpiegelMom Scraps Three Day Blog Hop Event! Weren't the projects yesterday just amazing?!?!  You should have arrived here from Lisa's blog after seeing her amazing and colorful creation! I decided that since September is finally here, I would dig into my stash (both new and old!) to create a fall layout. I have been dying to use this amazing cut file from The Cut Shoppe and it paired up perfectly with some hand stitching and the new Autumn Joy and Falling Leaves sequin mixes.

I used a woodgrain patterned paper for the background from the Life is Beautiful collection by Fancy Pants. My next layer was the cut file from The Cut Shoppe which included the heart cut outs and the beautiful woodgrain textures. I simply hand-stitched around the hearts that were cut out and then filled in each with sequins from the SpiegelMom Scraps store. From there, the layout came together really quickly as I added a few embellishments and some patterned paper layers behind my photo. Cork Confetti hearts and a matching cork alphabet were the perfect final touches. Here are a few close-up photos as well:

This was such a fun layout to make and one that came together pretty quickly! I am so excited to be welcoming back Fall and I hope that you also feel inspired to dig into your stash of Autumn colors and create!

Make sure to continue on to your next stop on the blog hop and to visit everyone in order to enter to win some great prizes!  You next stop is with Sarah and I know that you are going to absolutely love her project as well!  Have a wonderful holiday weekend and happy crafting!!!
