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!

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

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.

6d8635a39017f76d8b3cc3eebcf84196

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.

jan8scraplift1

This is my final layout and I really love it!

jan8scraplift2

For the water color behind the photo I used Bamboo Leaf Spritz on the whole background and a little bit of Moody Mauve Coloringz.

jan8scraplift3

I wanted to ground the title somehow so I decided to use some Gold Mine Texturez with a chevron stencil I made on my Silhouette Cameo. For the title I had cut out a phrase on my Silhouette and used my Bed of Roses Spritz to make it stand out against the white American Crafts Textured cardstock.

jan8scraplift4

I got the snowflake cut files from the blog. You can find it here.

jan8scraplift5

I also put a little bit of the red spray mist on the snowflakes to have them match the title.

jan8scraplift6

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!!

Scraplift Sunday with Crafty Meggy: Charming Boy

 

Scraplift Sunday

Hello SMS fans!! I hope you’re all having a great Sunday!! This is Megan and I have a light and airy layout for you today. Have you ever heard of a layout being described that way? lol It really does make me feel light and airy when I look at it, though!

Here’s the layout I lifted:

sept18layout

It’s an old layout by Maggie Holmes for Studio Calico!! I fell in love with it the minute I saw it and just had to lift it! I love all the banners. Are you guys tired of seeing me use banners on every layout yet? haha!

sept18layout1footer

I really love the light colors on this layout! These photos of my middle son Brynnan, just make me smile so big!! He’s such a sweet and charming boy!

sept18layout3

I made 3 clusters on this layout. In each of of them there was a cork heart and sequins from the Mocha Mint Dream sequin mix.

sept18layout4

For the title I used an American Crafts foam alpha and to keep your eye on the title I put a cork chevron piece at the beginning and the end, with a cork heart in the middle. I really love how that looks!

sept18layout5

This little banner cluster is the second one on the layout. I think it’s one of my favorite parts of the layout!

sept18layout6

Thanks for stopping by today!! I hope you enjoyed seeing my layout!

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:

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.
