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.

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.

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.

December Daily: Cover Layout

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!!

ddcoverpage

I just loved the differnt patterns, but also how simple this little cover page looked!!

ddcoverpage1-1fotter

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.

ddcoverpage1-2

I also used the numbers ‘1’ and ‘6’ for the year we are in.

ddcoverpage1-3

I really love the colors of the sequins with the washi tape I used.

ddcoverpage1-4

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!

I hope you’re having a great day so far!

Sketchin’ with Megan

Hello SMS fans!! This is Megan and I am back today with another sketch made by Sara for this weeks team up with :et’s Get Sketchy. I had a lot of fun with this sketch. I tried to play outside the box a little bit and took an idea I saw from my fellow design team member, Laura. I loved how she used the sequins to make little boxes to mimic the sketch so I took that idea and made it my own along with the sketch.

This is the sketch that Sara made and below is my take on it:

smssketch2-1footer

I had these 3 cute photos of 2 of my boys when they were younger and we were playing a video game together.

smssketch2-2

I kept this layout very simple and only embellished a little bit with the Hot Right Now sequins, chunky stars and a doily.

smssketch2-3

I used some papers from the Pink Paislee ‘Fancy Free’ collection. I really like the way the look with the sequins I used.

smssketch2-4

The title I made with Shimelle’s ‘Fitzgeral’ teal alpha and We R Memory Keepers ‘Honey I’m Home’ little sticker alpha’s.

smssketch2-5

 

smssketch2-6

I also used some Coloringz Spray Mist by Shimmerz Paints called ‘No Yolking’ and Mint Heidi Shine.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my take on the sketch this week! Tomorrow we will have a new sketch in this fun swap we’re doing this month. Make sure to check out the Let’s Get Sketchy blog and come back here as well to get the new sketch!

Sketchin’ with Crafty Meggy

Hello SpiegelMom Scraps fans!! This is Megan and I am here today to share a layout I made with the sketch that Sara Scraps whipped up for this weeks challenge. I really loved this sketch and thought about doing a couple different things with it. In the end, I was inspired by a recent layout I watched Katty Miranda make for a new YouTube series. She used her Shimmerz Paints Mists to make a cute background and I wanted to do something along the same lines.

Here’s the sketch:

sarascrapssketch

This is the layout I made.

sarascrapssketch1-1footer

I really loved the butterflies on the sketch, but I’m still in the process of setting up my scrap studio. It would’ve been way too much work for me to pull out my Silhouette, so I thought using the sprays would be a fun alternative.

sarascrapssketch1-2

One of my favorite things to do is to use a small glassine bag and fill it with sequins. I used the secret new Holiday Traditions sequin mix (it’s so new and secret that it isn’t in the store yet! 😉 lol).

sarascrapssketch1-3

I really love this cute photo of my middle son eating pudding when he was a toddler. He was a really messy eater! Isn’t it cute for toddlers to be messy eaters?!!

sarascrapssketch1-4

The sprays I used were Before Dawn Vibez, No Yoking Coloringz, and Bamboo Leaf Spritz. I thought these colors matched well with the colors of my sons shirt in the photo. I also used a little bit of Teal Me No Lies Texturez behind the photo.

sarascrapssketch1-5

I like the added texture that this doily gives the title cluster.

sarascrapssketch1-6

I also used the Chunky Stars from the shop to add neutral color to the cluster. I will do my journaling on this ‘Happy Dance’ 3×4 card before I stick it in my layout.

sarascrapssketch1-7

I am also thinking I might also do some hidden journaling and stick it in this cute little glassine bag.

I have a process video for this layout as well so I will be back a bit later to post that. You can keep an eye on my YouTube channel to see that. Thanks for stopping by! I hope you’re having a great scrappy weekend!!

Big Title Challenge with Crafty Meggy

Hello my SpiegelMom Scraps fans!! I am excited to be here today to share this fun winter layout I made to showcase one of the new sequin mixes in the shop, Classic Cozy. I absolutely LOVE this mix and definitely need to buy at least one or 2 more because it will be a favorite of mine for sure!! Anything with snowflakes is a must since we live in Idaho!!

Over in the 15 Minutes to Scrap facebook group Rachel has challenged us to use a big title this month. I really love the look of big titles and decided to use one of the foam word thickers, ‘Cherish’, from the ‘Fancy Free’ collection.

monthlychallenge1footer

I used the ‘Cherish’ word as part of the title and then the ‘Alyx’ Alpha for the rest.

monthlychallenge2

I had the background paper in my stash from a few years ago and it was pre-decorated with the north pole sign and even a reindeer and Santa. I didn’t want Santa or the reindeer to show so I cleverly placed my photo in that area.

monthlychallenge3

For the top part of the layout I thought it would be fun to use some blue bakers twine glued in random places and lengths and then put the snowflakes and other sequins along the twine. I wasn’t sure if I’d like it all that much, but it turned out better than I thought! Don’t you love it when that happens?!

monthlychallenge4

I really love the colors in this sequin mix!!

monthlychallenge5

I wanted to embellish a little bit on the photo and next to it so I cut out this cute little ‘snow day’ tag and glued down some sequins.

monthlychallenge9

I really had fun creating this layout!! I hope you can be inspired and create something with this months challenge! Come on over to the facebook group and share with us what you make!

Scraplift Sunday with Crafty Meggy: Yard Helpers

Scraplift Sunday

Hello my scrappy friends! This is Megan and I’m up today with a scraplift layout. I found this layout on pinterest and fell in love with it!

scraplift11thsept

I have a huge thing for banners. I don’t know what it is but I really love using them on my layouts. I thought all these banners on the layout above would be fun to incorporate into a layout.

sept11layoutfooter

This is the layout I made with the inspiration from the original. I am really happy with how it turned out! I love the cute cork butterflies which you can find in the shop here.

sept11layout6

I also used one of the new sequin mixes, Mocha Mint Dream. I love the mint green color with the browns in the pack.

sept11layout2

I thought putting the sequins in a line along the banners looked really nice and the cork butterflies above and below the banners on the right side of the layout added some nice texture.

sept11layout3

I wanted the banners to stand out so I inked the edges with Close to my Heart Sapphire ink.

sept11layout4

These cork butterflies are probably my favorite part of the layout. I don’t know how you are, but I have a hard time using things like butterflies and flowers on my layouts because I have all boys and I feel like they aren’t as masculine.

sept11layout5

We’re selling our house so I spent some time planting new flowers and felt that butterflies and flowers worked well together. So, yay! I was able to use them on a layout.

If you’d like to see my process video on how I made this layout, you can find it below on my channel:

 

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
