Scrappy Skippings

Hello everyone and welcome to this month's blog hop, aka SpiegelMom's Skippings!
Today is extra special because SpiegelMom Scraps is not only revealing the fabulous new sequin mixes for this quarter, but she's also welcoming this month's Guest Designer, Khristina Sorge.  (I follow her wonderful layouts on Facebook and Instagram and I suspect we are in for some crackers!) We are super excited to have her designing with us this month so watch for her first blog post next week!

For today's blog hop you should have arrived here from Katty.  Fabulous as always!  For today's project I had slight trouble... my new sequins are somewhere between here and America - probably sat in Customs. 

But not wanting to miss out I have a layout and process video using Spring Blooms Sequin Mix which is still available in the SpiegelMom shop.

I've used my like for ever kit and added in a length of lace from Crafty Ribbons, Spring Blooms, a doily and a mini wooden peg from SpiegelMom Scraps.

And here is my process...

The 2 prizes for this blog hop include $10 shop credit & ALL the new sequin releases PLUS another sequin mix of your choice!! You need to comment on all the blogs to be entered to win, and sharing the hop on your social media accounts earns you extra entries too! A winner will be picked after July 11:00pm CST July 2nd and announced on the main SpiegelMom Scraps blog on Sunday 3rd July, so be sure to leave comments on all the blogs to be entered!  I am the last stop on today's hop -  Thank you for spending your time with us today!

New Home Card

I keep discovering new challenge blogs.  Today's gem of a find is Case Study Challenge.   This weeks inspiration is by Laura Bassen: and the first thing that struck me was the colourway, it is beautiful. So I set to work all inspired and came up with this... I ran with the theme of houses and hearts but reversed them and stuck to the colours as much as I could. I used silicone glue to attach the hearts to the card to give dimension. A bit of garden twine - I love this because it so rustic.  I much prefer it to bakers twine which seems much softer and smoother.  Hand wrote 'New Home' in brown. I don't have a die cutting machine so I worked out my hearts and houses with a pencil, ruler and craft knife. I distress them a bit by dry brushing paint over them and roughing the edges a little. I'm not sure if I'm happy with this card to be honest with you.  I love the inspiration card so much and don't think mine quite matches up.  My colours ar

DMIO: Teach Me Something

A few weeks back I made a dream catcher.  A few readers asked if I could show them how I made it, so, here is my attempt at a tutorial! First up weaving the web. 1. You'll need a hoop and some ribbon/thread/yarn on a bobbin. 2. Attach the ribbon securely to your hoop. 3. Take your ribbon over the top of the hoop... 4. and up through the loop you've just made with the ribbon... 5. so you have a cross over. 6. Continue steps 3-5 until you reach the knot. 7. Now instead of going over the hoop you will crossover the ribbon 8. and through the loop you've just made to give a crossover. Continue on in this fashion until you get to the middle. You need to leave a hole in the middle as this is where the good dreams get through!  They then run down the tassels/feathers/any other hanging decoration and on to the owner.  It should look something like this.  You'll need to play around with your tension until you get a firm web. Now for the tassels - I like to

Life | M.E. Awareness

  I've been away for a while (bar the previous post) and have been really struggling for a while.  Well, a few years really.  I recently felt moved to share and write an 'essay' for M.E. Awareness which is coming up next month.  As it has been shared already I thought I'd add it here too.  I know my blog doesn't get hits galore but I look at more like a record for me and this needs to go on my record.   “ME/CFS Awareness Day, May 12, is fast approaching, and I am inviting all ME/CFS sufferers to participate in a collective creative action that we will share with the greater community!   Simply create a beautiful sign/image in your own artistic style/chosen medium with a simple statement to the question "what’s the first or most important thing you would do if you were well again today?" - then take a photo of you holding it.”   Simply?   Simply.   Simply say what I would do first, if I was well.   I don’t know.   Now I wish I hadn’t read this
