Electrons, as individual particles, spin and create a small magnetic field by doing so. An electron spinning clockwise is called "spin-up", while an electron spinning counterclockwise is called "spin-down". The two opposite spins also create oppositely charged magnetic fields.
Personally, I like to think of electron spin separately from thinking of the wave like properties. It just makes more sense in my head to think of that part along with the particle properties or with the electron configuration. Hope that helps.
