Scrap the Decade for Get It Scrapped

logobanner

Hello and welcome back to my blog! I am up over on the Get it Scrapped blog today with some of the other fabulous Creative Team Members. Our assignement was to pick a decade and be inspired to scrap a page. I picked the 1980’s because, well, that was the decade I was born in.

I had also actually been thinking about a specific memory from that time, when I was about 2 or 3. Some of you might remember the Cabbage Patch Kid Dolls and how huge they were in the early to mid 80’s. My parents gave my sister and me a doll each and I vividly remember when my sister opened hers and what my dad said. Isn’t that crazy how there are little moments in life that stand out like that? I mean, I was 2 years old!!

Ok, so let’s move onto my layout:

When I first got this assignment I had immediately thought of the Wonder Collection, that’s a year or two years old. I had bought some of the papers and the alpha, but hadn’t used them yet. I was so excited to pull them out for this layout.

I found the photo in the top left in a pile of old photos my mom had sent me a few years ago. It was a Christmas picture, but not from the specific year we got the dolls. I was really excited to use it on this layout though because it does portray that it’s Christmas.

I then went to google, my trusty companion a lot of the time, and looked for images of Cabbage Patch Kids. I found the logo and this blonde haired doll and they were perfect!

januarydecade1

I first started thinking I would title the layout something like ‘the 80’s’ or ‘a 1980’s Christmas’, but the more and more I thought about it I just really didn’t like them. I took to the internet to ask my scrappy friends and between two friends I came out with this title and I just love it!! ‘Proud Member of the Cabbage Patch Fad’, it’s so perfect!

This cute little heart flair with the sequins inside of the heart is my absolute favorite!! Isn’t it just so cute?!!! I love it! I also used some of the sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps shop called Evergreen Bough.

I also did some mixed media on the background. I used a Tim Holtz stencil with some Sea U in the Mornin’ Dazzlerz

I absolutely LOVE this photo and wanted the focus to be on it. I really love the big 8 inch doily you can also get in the SMS shop. I used another cute flair from Accent Scrapbooking, a cork heart from SMS, a mini glassine bag, a 4 inch silver doily, green May arts burlap ribbon and a large manila tag.

In Your Pocket Tuesday: Over at the Crafty Maven Getaway

Hello Hello!! I am up on the Crafty Maven Getaway YouTube Channel today. Here’s a couple photos, you can find my process video below:

jan24pl2

For these Pocket Scrapbook pages I have a bunch of random photos I want to get in my album. They’re all from different days, but I thought they were still cute and good stories to tell.

jan24pl7

I loved this 3×4 card from the Cinnamon Edition Project Life kit. I just cut it down and stuck some enamel dots on it and was done with this cute and simple card.

jan24pl9

I titled these pages Normal Life because that’s exactly what all the photos were portraying. I really love this card and thought it was perfect to use!

 

 

Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you’re having a great week so far!

Cut File Freebie and a Layout Process video Over at SpiegelMom Scraps!!

Hello and Happy Happy Monday!! Monday is actually one of my favorite days of the week, is that crazy/weird?!! For me Monday means back to a ‘normal’ schedule. The kids all go off to school, I have time to think without them asking every 5 seconds if they can play this or that electronic device and my husband goes back to work and I am FREE to do what I want to do. Not that I don’t get to do that over the weekend! lol I actually do have a lot of free time over the weekend, but I always feel so guilty about using it.

Anyway!! Wow, that was a very long winded intro! Ok, let’s jump into today’s video and post!

I posted over at the SpiegelMom Scraps blog yesterday. You can find that post here. I wasn’t able to post the video that went along with this layout though so that is finally up on YouTube today! Yay! You can watch that below or on my YouTube channel.

Thanks for stopping by today!! Don’t forget to check out the photos and explanation and thought process over on the SMS blog! Also, If you make a purchase at the shop you can use the code MEgan15 to get 15% off your order!

Cuts2Luv & SpiegelMom Scraps Blog Hop

Hello everyone, I’m here today for a very special blog hop! The Sparklers and I are very excited to announce our product swap with the fabulous flair shop, Cuts2Luv!! We have been planning this for months and are super excited the day is finally here!! Caroline, from Cuts2Luv, is a total a sweetheart and her flair are wonderful, so be sure to check her shop out HERE.
For today, I’m sharing a layout I created based off a sketch that Jody, the SMS owner and amazing scrapbooker, designed. I used this sketch as my inspiration and this FREE SpiegelMom Scraps cut file to create all my snowflakes. You can find the cut file HERE and the sketch can be saved right from this post.I also used some CUTE flair badges I was given for this swap. You can find them HERE.
Below is my take on this sketch:
I decided to flip it just a little bit. I had this red background paper from a Michaels Recollections paper pad, but there was a journaling area in the bottom right hand corner that I didn’t want to use. My solution was to flip the sketch and cover it up with the blue snowflake paper. I LOVE how it looks flipped like this!
I received 4 cute flair badges from Cuts2Luv and used 3 of them on my layout. They were mostly snow/winter based, which was fitting with the sketch and the photo I wanted to use.
I actually only used one photo and stretched it over 3 frames to use like the sketch suggested. I really love how the black mat just makes the snow pop off the page!
I wanted to use some mixed media on some of the snowflakes so I pulled out my Snow Way Man Vibez, Gummy Berry Blue Dazzlerz, and Foiled Again Dazzlers. I also used the Cozy sequin Mix.
Look at that cute snowflake flair!! Isn’t it just perfect?! I love it!!
I had a so much fun combining the products from these two companies. They look so awesome together! I hope you enjoy what I’ve created for you today and enjoy the rest of the hop! Remember to leave comments on all the designers blogs to be entered to win a couple fabulous prizes from each company!
 
Thanks for stopping by! Now you’re off to Sandra’s blog. I know you’ll just love her project!
HERE IS THE LINE UP!!
You can also watch my process video HERE or below! I hope you have enjoyed this layout as much as I did!
