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:
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.
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.
This is the layout I ended up making. I am super happy with how it turned out!!
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.
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.
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.
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!
Isn’t it just gorgeous?!!!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Hello my fellow SMS fans!! This is Megan and I am up today with a fun and simple scraplift. I was looking through my Scraplift board on pinterest and I found this one with a little mixed media on it.
Don’t you just love it?!! I immediately thought I would try using some Dazzlerz from the shop on the background, but when I actually got to work making the layout I changed my mind. I really liked the idea of using water colors.
I got the snowflake cut files from the blog. You can find it here.
I also put a little bit of the red spray mist on the snowflakes to have them match the title.
I wanted to do some journaling but I didn’t have anywhere to put it without taking away from the design. I pulled out a mini glassine bag and made a cute little tag. I tied some May Arts Burlap String through the hole I punched to make it easier to grab the tag and pull it out so you can read the journaling.
You can watch my process video below and I explain a little more about the story behind the photo and the tags:
Thanks for stopping by today!! I hope you’re having a great new year so far!!
Hello hello SMS fans!! I hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday! I am really excited about this days spread! I am about a week behind in making my pages and on this day I had some spare time in the morning to go get some breakfast at Starbucks. I was excited because I had so many ideas on how to incorporate the coffee cup holder thingy and the bag from my breakfast purchase.
This is what the two page spread looks like. I got the idea from pinterest to make a sequin pocket page out of a 6×8 page protector. I decided to include the hand holder thingy (I can’t remember for the life of me what they’re called) in the middle of the page. I used my We R Memory Keepers Fuse tool to divide each of the pockets.
I liked the idea of having one big sequin pocket on the bottom. I used 3 different sequin mixes, Evergreen Bough, Holly Berries, and Holiday Traditions. I wanted the divider to be curved to kind of form with the coffee holder. It didn’t turn out as awesome as I had pictured, but it worked!
I curved the divider at the top of the coffee holder and then divided that pocket into threes. By the time I did that I think my Fuse was getting too hot because it started to melt the top of the page protector. Ooops!
On the right hand side I punched holes in bag and made a little mat to put on the inside of the bag with more photos. I used some older Simple Stories tile alphas for the title of the page and I glued the day number right next to the title.
I cut out a little shape on the photo mat so when people are looking at the album they will know they can pull it up and out. I really love how that turned out!!
This Is the mat with more photos and journaling about our day. I kept the embellishing super simple. I used the Chunky Cork Stars from the shop.
I used an arrow sticker to point out where my son is in the photo. I love this one of him in mid clap.
I included smaller photos so I could tell more stories about the day. This worked out even better than I thought it would! I’m always glad when that happens!
I really love that I was able to use the Starbucks bag and coffee holder to bring to life this memory on my layout. Using real life ephemera is always a fun part of scrapbooking!
I hope you’re having a great day! Make sure to check out the current sales going on in the Spiegelmom Scraps store!! Today’s discount is 40% off cardstock.
Hello SMS fans!! This is Megan and I am up today with a very cute and simple cover page for my December Daily album.
I was browsing pinterest before December trying to figure out some fun ideas for filler pages in my album. The cover page was one that I had no idea what I wanted to do! I came across this iamge on pinterest and fell in LOVE!!
I just loved the differnt patterns, but also how simple this little cover page looked!!
This is the cover page that I made up. I thought it would be fun to use washi tape with some of the Holly Berries sequin mix to make the tree.
I also used the numbers ‘1’ and ‘6’ for the year we are in.
I really love the colors of the sequins with the washi tape I used.
I used the Chunky Cork Stars for the top of the tree and I was done! This page was super simple and only took about 15 minutes to get all of those little sequins glued down.
I don’t have a video for you today, but I hope you’ll stop by my YouTube channel! I’m hoping to get all caught up on December Daily this week so we’ll see how that goes!
Hello SMS fans!! This is Megan and I am excited to share this filler page I made for my December Daily album. I have been doing this month long project for the last 2 years and I have LOVED it! This will be my third year. I am super excited to get scrapping and keep up with this project this month.
I started out with this project thinking I was going to make this filler page part of my Day 2 layout spread. I decided towards the middle of making it that I wanted to make this page into just a filler. I’ve seen people do this in their albums and loved the idea. I thought it would be fun to document our favorite holiday movies. There are 5 of us in our family so I asked everyone to pick their favorite movie and wrote it down on the page.
To make this page I used a cinch album kit from Heidi swap that I got on super clearance at Michaels. I thought it would be fun to include random pieces in my album this year. This was the cover for the album I bought and loved that it had a hole in the top. I quickly decided that would be the spot for a sequin pocket.
I used a medium glassine bag from the store to hold my sequins. I spent a long time shaping it to fit the circle and then finally used hot glue to keep it stuck down. The sequin mix I used in the pocket was one of my favorites from the shop, Holly Berries. I really LOVE the colors in this mix!! It’s not only the traditional red and greens for Christmas so it’s very versatile.
I embellished the bottom of the page with a green ribbon and a chipboard candy cane border piece. I kept this page simple and clean and I love how it turned out!!
I put this cute little sticker down in the bottom right hand corner with a little red enamel dot for a little more embellishment.
I have a process video for you that I will post on my YouTube channel later today! I hope you’re having a great december so far!!
