October guest designer... Brittany

Hi everyone! My name is Bethany and I'm so happy to be joining you this month! I'm an elementary librarian by day and a scrapbooker by night. My husband Chris and I currently live in Minnesota and I've been scrapbooking seriously for over 10 years. I love how this wonderful hobby brings so many amazing women together! Thanks for joining me this month!
I loved two page layouts because I feel like I can often tell a more comprehensive story. This layout pays tribute to the Icelandic cuisine that my husband and I tasted while visiting Iceland last summer. I used a series of collage photos to highlight some of our favorite dishes. Thanks for taking a look!

You can see more of Bethany's work on her blog!

White... With 1 team collaboration!

I wanted to share what the team from White... With 1 did with our single page sketch.


No automatic alt text available.
If you're not familiar with the rules of the White... With 1 challenge blog, your layout has to be 70% white, plus the color of the month. You can use bits of neutrals like black or kraft.

Here's the White... With 1 design team:

They rocked our sketch!

Antonia sharing a beautiful sequin page!

Antonia  is sharing a special layout this month using Spiegelmom Scraps sequins!

 



I decided to create a layout using the September single page sketch and the Out of This World sequins that were left over after finishing my September double page. The sketch reminded me of this 12”x12” wood veneer diecut I’ve been clinging onto for quite a while. I decided to use it on a page that tells the story of Teddy, my daughter’s favourite cuddly toy. The sequins seemed perfect for the photos! I painted the background paper Ombre with watercolour paint, in colours that complement the sequins.

You can find more sequins at the Spiegelmom Scraps store HERE.

Melissa using hustle bustle sequins & the September single page sketch

(the 26th) 

I used the "Hustle Bustle" sequin mix.  As soon as I saw it I knew it had to be a Christmas layout.  Pairing that with the stripes from the September Sketch and it was definitely an "Oh Christmas Tree" page. I love how the sequins add to the tree and the simple light green ones add depth to the background!   

SpiegelMom Scraps is a specialty sequin mix shop based in Racine, Wisconsin (US).   SMS's owner, Jody, began her love of crafting as a child with her Nana and making coasters with yarn and plastic canvas.  From then on she never looked back and has always been creative.  She's been scrapbooking nearly 20 years and has always loved to sprinkle pretty little details throughout her scrapbook pages.  Jody's love of creating, adding tiny details and sparkle led her to start her business in 2010.  Since then SpiegelMom Scraps has grown, along with Jody's busy family, to a one woman small business with a fabulous design team called the Sparklers.   Jody and the Sparklers enjoy teaming up with other small businesses to swap products to create with and hosting fun events on social media.  Jody would love you to join them on their creative journey by following SMS on social media.  There's LOTS of inspiration and a wonderful community in the 15 Minutes 2 Scraps Facebook group also.  Please stop by and leave a comment telling us where you heard about SMS!  

You can find SMS inspiration on the BLOG, Instagram, You Tube channel, and the Facebook group.
