Scrapbook all the memories!

Get It Scrapped Sketch #119



Hello scrappy friends! I am up on the GIS blog today with a sketch layout. I really love how this one turned out! You can find the post here with the other layouts the creative team members made as well as mine.


This is the sketch, made by Debbie Hodge for Get It Scrapped. If you’ve never visited her website, you should come on over! I really love all the classes and everything she has to offer with her membership.


This is the layout I made with the sketch. I decided to only use 5 photos and the rest of the spots I filled with paper and journaling.


I used an old Pink Paislee Christmas/Winter themed collection, which was perfect for these photos. For the title I used ‘Marquee’ thickers from American crafts.


I had a lot to say in the journaling spot so it kind of spilled over more than I had wanted it too, but I’m glad that I wold the whole story.


I kept my embellishing to a minimum so you can focus on the photos as you look around the layout.


I really love that I decided to layer more than one pattern paper behind the main photo on the left. I love that they bring your eye to that photo first and then the title.


I really love capturing these fun winter memories of my boys!

You can watch the process video below and the blog post is over on Get It Scrapped here.

In Your Pocket Tuesday at The Crafty Maven Getaway

Hello, Hello again my friends!! I am back with another Pocket style scrapbook page for the Crafty Maven Youtube channel. You can find the process video here and also a few photos below.


I used a paper from the Amy Tangerine Oh Happy Life collection called ’11 am’. I also used the Amy Tangerine ‘Finders Keepers’ ephemera.


I wanted to keep the embellishing simple, but cute. I used the same washi tape throughout the whole pocket page and the same enamel dots with a few ephemera pieces from the pack. The enamel dots I used are from Close to my Heart in Aqua.


I loved this cute little star, but since it was acetate glue would show through it so I decided to staple it onto the photo. I just used an every day stapler. Nothing fancy here at Crafty Meggy headquarters! lol


Thanks so much for stopping by today!! Make sure to come on over to the Crafty Maven Channel to watch my process video!

Hip Kit Design Team Application Layout

Hello my scrappy friends!! I have a fun and exciting layout for you today! I have decided to apply for the Hip Kit Design Team. I really absolutely LOVE this kit club! They always have such fun kits and use the newest collections in their kits and I love seeing all the amazing layout everyone makes.  I had so much fun making this layout to submit to them!! I think it’s one of my favorites I’ve made recently.

So, lets go ahead and jump right in!



This is the full layout. I used some fun papers from a few different collections. The background is from Heart Day, one of my new favorite collections.


I love the title on this layout and the journaling card worked out perfectly right under it. I did my journaling on that and really love how that turned out.


I made 3 clusters on the layout using the cork Snowflakes from SpiegelMom Scraps store and also the Triple Axle and Build a Snowman sequin mixes.


I love the clusters of snowflakes and sequins!!


You can also see I used some houndstooth tissue paper under the photos and around the clusters.


I love the different layers I created behind the photos with the tissue paper and the patterned papers.


You can go ahead and watch my process video below or on my YouTube channel:

Thanks so much for stopping by today!! I hope you enjoyed seeing my layout! Have a great scrappy week!

Cultivating Creativity #1 ~ Be Inspired by Candy


Hello and happy Wednesday!! I am so glad it’s Wednesday! Haha! I feel like I’m drowning this week and am so excited for the weekend to be here. But, for today, I am excited to share a fun new series on my channel!

I have been doing a kit series on my channel with some friends on YouTube for the past year and it has been super fun! As the new year came around we started talking about maybe changing up the challenge a bit and doing something different together. We decided on a bi-weekly challenge that we will post on Tuesdays. Each time one of us will pick a new challenge and all work on that. It will be so fun to see how differently we are inspired each week.

So, for this first week, Khristina challenged us to be inspired by candy some way. At first I really wasn’t sure what on earth I was going to do, but then Hannah and I were talking and she mentioned I could be inspired by skittles or their little saying ‘Taste the Rainbow’. When she said that I mulled that around for a few days and then it hit me! My middle son Brynnan used to talk about how his favorite color was “100 colors”. It’s one of my favorite memories and I just KNEW that was what my layout was going to be about.


This is my finished layout. I’m so happy with how it turned out!! I used my December Clique kit and the Wonder collection Thickers.


I’m going to do the journaling on the card that I tucked in the glassine bag above the photo.


I really loved using this cut file from The Cut Shoppe. It’s one of my favorite alphas from her!


I put one of the cork butterflies from the newish Pink Paislee colledction, Moonstruck, in each cluster.


I kept each cluster really simple and I just LOVE the little pieces together in this top cluster.




I love this photo of Brynnan. It’s not actually an accurate photo of him at the time he said this, but I thought it was cute and it’s one that I had so I decided to use it.


These pretty acetate pieces in this cluster are from the Illustrated Faith collection called ‘You Are Loved’.

I hope you enjoyed watching my pro

Scrappy Challenge

Hello my scrappy friends! I am back today with a fun scrappy challenge for you!! If you don’t already know, I have a group on facebook that I host with Roni Sue Scrapper called Scrappy Challenges and we like to do fun things to challenge us while scrapbooking. It’s been a while since we did a challenge so last week we picked one out and all scrapbooked using it. This time around Jennifer challenged us to scrapbook using a holiday themed collection without a holiday photo or a holiday photo with a non themed holiday collection. I chose to do the latter and I had so much fun using the newish Illustrated Faith You Are Loved collection.


This is the layout I ended up making. I really like how it turned out! This collection is super fun and has really bright and lovely colors.


The embellishments I used were from the Clique Kits December 2016 kit. I really love this kit that they put together!!


These acetate arrows were so cute, I just had to include them!!


I did a little bit of journaling about the photos and I really was happy with how I didn’t go over board with that. I have a tendancy to ramble on with my journaling, but this just flowed really well.


My title was simple and very straight forward. Sometimes, those are just the best title, at least in my opinion!

You can watch my process video below:

I hope you have a wonderful and scrappy week! Make sure to come on over to the facebook group to check out all the other layouts!

Scrap the Decade for Get It Scrapped


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!


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!

We decided to use this sketch by Laura Whitaker to make our layouts:


Don’t you just love it?!!



This is the layout I made with the sketch inspiration. I am SO in LOVE with how this layout turned out! I did a little flip of the sketch and made it a bit more me.



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.


This is the third cluster and I was so excited to be able to use another one of these fun flair badges!

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:


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.


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.


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!
