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.

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

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.

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?!

I really love the colors in this sequin mix!!

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.

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.

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!!

Scraplift Sunday with Crafty Meggy: This Lovely Moment

Hello everyone!! This is Megan and I am here to share with you a scraplift layout. I really love being able to find a fun layout on pinterest or other social media and make it my own. For today layout I found one on pinterest:

scraplift4thsept

I really love the layers underneath the photos on this layout and that is pretty much what I took from this layout.

sept4thlayoutfooter

I had these old old old photos of my mom when she was a toddler and I thought they would work perfect with the newish My Minds Eye collection called On Trend 2. I really love the colors of the pinks, mints and redish oranges together. And of course the gold!! Who doesn’t love gold?!!

sept4thlayout2

For the title I used an Amy Tangerine alpha called Memento and the word lovely came from the On Trend 2 chipboard set. Under the title I decided to use some of the Gold Sequin Confetti mix.

sept4thlayout3

I clusetered some flowers around the left side of the layout, next to the photo. I also used the ‘Amy’s Sprinkles’ sequin mix and put a gold sequin confettie piece in the middle of the flowers.

sept4thlayout4

Under the title I also added a little chipboard phrase that I thought added to the layout.

sept4thlayout5

I really love using sequins on my layouts and incorporating them into the design!

I hope you enjoyed seeing my layout today and how I used my sequins. I also used 2 little pieces of white doilies at the top of the photos. You can find those in the store as well.
