Scraplift Sunday with Crafty Meggy

Hello scrappy friends!! This is Megan and I have a super fun layout for you!! I was on pinterest looking for layouts and I found this one:

I immediately fell in LOVE with it and had so much fun making my own version!

Here’s the layout I made. I really love how it turned out! I had so much fun making it!!

I am doing a competition with some scrappers and one of the challenges was to use 5 different alphas in a title so I decided to do it on this layout. I really love how it turned out.

I used a couple sequin mixes from the shop, Rockin’ Pink Ombre and Amy’s Sprinkles. The flair is from KJKareen’s etsy shop.

I also used a doily and Shimmerz Paints in Princess and Bamboo Leaf

I used another flair badge from KJKareen and the sequins on top of this Large tag where I will end up writing my journaling.

I really love this title!

I hope you enjoyed seeing this layout!! I will have a video up on my YouTube channel a bit later this week so you can visit me here.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you’re having a great weekend!

Scraplift Sunday with Crafty Meggy

Hello SpiegelMom Scraps fans!! This is Megan and I am back with another Scraplift post! I am so excited about this one!! I was on facebook last week and I found an amazing layout in one of the scrappy facebook groups I’m a member of:

 

This layout was made by Amanda-Jayne Baldwin and I just absolutely LOVE the pretty heart that’s water colored in the background.

This is the layout I made and I love it too!!

I am so horrible at making up titles, but my fellow design team member, Khristina is amazing at them so I asked her for some help and this is what she came up with. I love it!

I had so much fun using all these hearts on my layout! I love the I Cork U hearts in the store. I had the wood veneer hearts in my stash, as well as the resin pink one. The heart flair I just purchase from one of our fun collab ladies back in February, KJKareen. I absolutely love her etsy shop!

I totally love this embellishment cluster area on the layout with this cute flair, the hearts and the fun sequins!! I used a couple different sequin mixes on this layout A Mermaid’s Tale and the new Pandora’s Ombre.

Scraplift Sunday with Crafty Meggy

Scraplift Sunday

Hello again my SMS friends! I am back on this wonderful Sunday with another Scraplift layout to share with you.

I just want to say I really love scraplifting layouts!! I often try to change the layout and make it my own and with this one I definitely made sure to do that! This is the layout I found on pinterest:

feb1scraplift

Isn’t it just gorgeous?!! I absolutely fell in love with all the mixed media in the background! She even has a companion layout called ‘SHE’. Make sure to go on over to the Cocoa Vanilla Studio blog to check it out! I was just blown away.

feb19scraplift1footer

This is my layout. I am really happy with how it turned out!! I used the American Crafts white textured cardstock for the background with some gesso. To get the background mist I sprayed in 4 spots and added water. I used Heidi Ho Blue, No Yolking and Before Dawn.

feb19scraplift2

I used the 2 Cool 4 U sequin mix from the shop as well as the Clique Kits December 2016 embellishment pack and flair badge. I decided that this was going to be the title for my layout.

feb19scraplift3

I made a little cluster in the bottom left hand corner with the journaling. This spot worked out perfect!

feb19scraplift4

Here’s another view of this title cluster. I really had a lot of fun with this layout!

Scraplift Sunday!

Hello everyone! This is Megan and I am SO excited to share this weeks layout with you!! I decided to scrap the talented Missy Whidden this week. Here’s the layout she made:

feb11scraplift

Don’t you just absolutely love it?!!! Here’s my take on the layout:

feb11scraplift1footer

I am having so much fun scrapbooking girly layouts of me and my sisters when we were little girls! I have 3 boys so I don’t get to do a whole lot of girly scrapbooking.

feb11scraplift2

I used an AC white textured cardstock for the background and the Paige Evans Take Me Away collection for the patterned papers. The flowers I fussy cut from one of her papers. I used a silver doily, May arts ribbon/string, A mermaid’s tail and Hearts on fire sequin mixes from the shop. I also used Shimmerz Paints Vibez Princess spray mist on the background.

feb11scraplift3

I really had so much fun making up these 2 clusters. I wanted to have the journaling hidden so I glued a mini glassine bag down to the background and put a large manila tag in it with the date and our names.

feb11scraplift4

I really love this homemade cut file that Hannah gave to me! Thanks again, Hannah!!

feb11scraplift5

I used the cute little I Heart U felties in white as well.

feb11scraplift8

Here’s the little tag with the embellishments and date on it. I really love how that turned out!

Scraplift Sunday with Crafty Meggy

Scraplift Sunday

 

Hello my fellow SMS lovers!! I hope you’re having a great weekend! It’s always so sad when it comes to an end, but I really do love having my laid back Sundays.

I have another Scraplift for you today. I love going through my Scrapliftable board on pinterest, but this past week I was actually on pinterest for a different project and I found this layout:

feb5Scraplift

I really love the 3 patterned papers in the background and I thought doing something like that would look good with a cut file on top of it.

Hey Honey

This is the free cut file for the month of february. You can get it here in the cut file section of the blog or click the image.

feb5scraplift1footer

This is the layout I ended up making. I am super happy with how it turned out!!

feb5scraplift2

This year I have decided to really take my weight loss up a gear. It’s always a goal of mine to lose weight every year, but I usually give up after a couple weeks. I started going to the gym again a couple weeks into January and I took a few photos of the first workout. It was a slow one, but I am really proud of myself for sticking with it and going! These photos document before, during and after my workout.

feb5scraplift3

I really love the new I Cork U and Love U Tons felties hearts in the shop. I layered them here in this cluster on top of a white lace doily and also used the Strawberry Bubblegum sequin mix.

feb5scraplift4

I used an older Dear Lizzy thickers alpha and put a cute little heart sequin to dot each of the i’s.

feb5scraplift5

I put my journaling and another cluster in the bottom right hand corner.

feb5scraplift6

I used a couple yellow sequins from the Pocket Full of Posies mix, as well as a mini glassine bag, 2 large manila tags and raspberry May arts string.

Using a Background Cut File with Mixed Media

Happy Sunday everyone!! I hope you’re having a great weekend! This is Megan and I have a layout to share with you today that I used the free monthly cut file on.

Ginger

I really loved this cut file and new I just had to used it on an artsy layout. I wanted to do something different with it besides backing it with patterned paper so I decided to pull out my Shimmerz Sprays.

cutfile1footer

I started out by spraying my Shimmerz Paints mists on the cut file. The colors I used were Well Blue Me Down Coloringz, Snow Way Man Vibez, No Yolking Coloringz, Bed of Roses Spritz, and Moody Mauve Coloringz.

cutfile2

In this little cluster I used some chipboard, wood veneer and a button from Paige Evans’ Take me away collection as well as the new 2 Cool 4 U sequin mix from the shop.

cutfile3

I made a little sequin pocket with a mini glassine bag.

cutfile4

I used the top part of the glassine bag in this top right corner for a 3rd cluster with some of the sequins.

cutfile5

I had so much fun layering papers from a few different collections behind the photo.

Scraplift Sunday with Crafty Meggy

Scraplift Sunday

 

Happy Sunday everyone!! I hope you’re having a great weekend! I am excited to share this layout with you because I had so much fun making it! I was on YouTube this past week and I found a new channel to subscribe to and I have fallen in love with her videos and her style. You can find her channel here (Paper Sweetpea). I watched a layout she posted a few weeks ago and fell in love immediately and KNEW I had to scraplift it for this weeks assignment!

SweetPeaScraplift2

Isn’t it just gorgeous?!!!

SweetPeaScraplift4footer

When I sat down to make this layout I knew almost right off that I wanted to use Dazzlers and Texturez paints from Shimmerz. I really love how the background turned out!! I went with the colors Foiled Again and Teal Me No Lies. I LOVE it!

SweetPeaScraplift5

My husband and I celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary on January 3rd and we were able to go out to dinner and a movie. It was so fun! One of my goals this year is to scrapbook more current photos so I picked this one to highlight our night.

SweetPeaScraplift6

I used this ‘love’ word thicker from the Fancy Free thicker set, I believe. It was originally silver, but it didn’t match the rest of the title so I painted it black with the Licorice Stick Dazzlerz you can get in the store.

SweetPeaScraplift7

I have a few more thicker phrases from an Amy Tan collection, I don’t remember which one, but I thought they would be perfect to make a unique title.

SweetPeaScraplift8

Here’s another view of the title and photo with all the layers. One of the things I really LOVED about the scraplift layout was the layers she put behind the photos. I had fun playing around with a bunch of scraps in my stash.

SweetPeaScraplift10

I used the Gold Confetti and 2 Cool 4 U sequin mixes, as well as the Cloudy Day Felties and a Chunky Cork Star in this little cluster.

SweetPeaScraplift11

In the top left hand corner I used a few tags with the sequins and a cute little grey heart from the Heart Felties pack.

You can watch my process video on my youtube channel below:
