Labor Day Weekend Triple Blog Hop

Welcome everyone to the Labor Day Weekend Triple Blog Hop!  I'm so glad you are hopping along with us today!  The Sparklers and I are hosting three separate blog hops featuring some super special guests!  Be sure to hop along each day for a chance to win one of three $10 SMS shop credits.

You should have arrived here from Khristina's blog, but if you get lost you can always go back to SpiegelMomScraps to find the entire list of blogs for today!

 Today is Sequin Saturday where we will be showing off some of the amazing sequin mixes in the shop!  For todays' hop I made a Pocket Life spread!  Here it is:

I used some new to me collections for this spread; Amy Tangerine Better Together, Jen Hadfield Everyday, Dear Lizzy Happy Place and a bit of Imaginisce Summer Love.  As always, I started on my title card first as it will set the tone for the whole spread.

 I sewed a 2x6 strip of yellow paper from Everyday onto a blue piece from Better Together.  I added the word Thicker from the new Amy Tangerine collection Oh Happy Life and added the week with the Dear Lizzy epoxy Thickers.  I embellished with a couple of die cut flowers, the new Cork Confetti Stars, resin stars and some of the new Let's Be Mermaids sequin mix.

I filled a Becky Higgins Fuse brand 4x6 photo pocket with some of the Let's Be Mermaids sequins mix and added a bit of the Fairy Dust mix and a couple seed beads from my stash.  I sewed it shut with my sewing machine, but you could also use your Fuse Tool to do this.

I love using 3x4 pictures on 4x6 cards for PL.  It gives me extra room to embellish!  Here I made a fun cluster and embellished with more Cork Confetti Stars and Let's Be Mermaids sequins.

I made my own 3x4 filler card by sewing a piece of the Summer Love cut apart sheet and sewing it onto a 3x4 piece of patterned paper from Everyday.  I embellished with an enamel heart, a gem and a sequin.

I embellished my last 4x6 card in a similar fashion to the others.  This adds balance and symmetry to my layout.  I try to make sure that my colors and embellishments are evenly spread out across the pages.  And that does it for my layout today!  I hope you enjoyed it!
