Scraplift Sunday with a Twist

Hello scrappy friends!! This is Megan and I have a couple fun cards to share with you today. I’m not a huge card maker, but sometimes I’ll make a few at a time, so I thought it would be fun to pull out an oldish Close to my Heart catalog and find a couple cards I liked.

Here’s a photo of the one I decided to lift:

and then I got the idea to emboss my base from this one:

 

Here are my cute cards that I made with the inspiration from CTMH. I love them both!

I know that Father’s Day is far away, but I thought this card was super cute and my husband would like it so that’s why I went with this stamp. For the base of both cards I used the American Crafts Textured Cardstock.

I used these I Cork U hearts from the shop along with the Amy’s Sprinkles sequin mix.

You can also find the Large Shipping Tag in the shop as well as the new Shimmerz Paints Acritonez, I used Jiven Jade.

For this second card I decided I wanted to make it totally different than the inspiration from the CTMH catalog. I loved the idea of using the embossing folder. This is a cloud one I bought from Stampin’ Up. I wanted to paint the embossed card and created kind of a resist image, but the Acritones I used, dried too fast. But, I really love how it turned out!

I really love these cute Cloudy Days felites!! I think they’re one of my favorite products in the shop!!

I also used the Plum Dreamsicle sequin mix and a Close to my Heart stamp.

I hope you enjoyed seeing these cute cards!! I have a process videos that I will post below.

Thanks so much for stopping by!! I hope you have a great Sunday!!

Scraplift Sunday with Crafty Meggy

Hello fellow SMS fans!! I hope you’re having a wonderful Sunday! I am so excited about this layout so I will just jump right in!!

I saw a recent layout by Victoria Marie on youtube and knew immediately that I just HAD to scraplift it! Don’t you just love all the inspiration we have these days between all the different social media we are a part of?!!!

Here is the layout that Victoria made:

Isn’t it just GORGEOUS?!!! I just love the simplicity of it! My layout didn’t turn out quite so simple, but I am in love with it!!

I decided to print off this photo of my newest nephew and me that my sister took last week when they came to visit. That is the thing I love about having my Canon Selphy, I can print out photos and use them immediately.

I made 3 clusters on this layout. Each one of them has Love you Tons Felties, Wolf Gery Heart Felties, Amy’s Sprinkles and Gun Metal Grey sequin mixes (Both of these mixes are sold out and being retired so they’re no longer available. Sorry about that!! BUT, you can find the other amazing sequin mixes here!)

I had a hard time finding a font in the right color that worked with the layout. In the end I went with this one and I love it!!

I used a Silver Foil Holiday Doily in a couple places on the layout. I really love how the silver stands out again the white textured American Crafts cardstock and that black polka dot paper.

And lawst but not least, I used the good old packaging technique on the background with a few Shimmerz paints, Well Blue Me Down Colorings, Before Dawn Vibez and No Yolking Coloringz.

Here’s my process video you can watch if you’d like a closer look at how I made the layout:

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!

I hope that you enjoy looking at this layout! You can watch the process video below or here on my YouTube channel:

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

 

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:

 

 

I hope you enjoyed seeing this layout I made using products from the store. Make sure to come on over and check out all the fun goodies! If you use the code Megan15 you can get 15% off your total order!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!

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!!
