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!

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.

Get It Scrapped Sketch #117

Hello my friends!! I am up on the Get it Scrapped blog today with a sketch layout. This one was taken from the Scrapbook Coach Class called Top Heavy. Come on over to the blog and get more inspiration from the creative team.

This is the sketch we used:


Here’s a closer look at my layout below:


I used my summer kits from Citrus Twist Kit Club for this layout.


I have been wondering how I would ever use this house ephemera piece and it worked perfect on this layout about my sisters and I hanging out in my grandma’s backyard playing by the swing.


I used the Amy Tangerine ‘Alyx’ chipboard alpha and I LOVE how it looks on this layout!


I love the simple look these tags give my date and journaling and that little cloud is just adorable!! octobersketch1

December is HERE!!

Happy December everyone!! I don’t know about you but I am super excited about this month and I have so many plans! I can’t wait to share them all with you!

First up, let’s talk December Daily! If you didn’t know, I posted a video talking about my thoughts on December Daily and how awesome it is. I have changed it to work for me and I have loved doing it these past 2 years, this will be my third year doing it. I have 2 videos up on my YouTube channel so far and you can watch them here and here.

I am planning on printing off my pictures every day after my kids are in bed and working on the layout for that day. The next morning I will finish editing the previous days video and upload it to YouTube sometime in the afternoon. I am really hoping I can keep up with this project and be finished with it on December 26th. If I don’t get it done by then I won’t be upset at myself or anything, but my biggest goal is to be done with it before the new year.

Second, I have a blog post up from earlier today that is a hop with the other SpiegelMom Scraps Sparkler Design Team members. Here’s the link to the post on my blog if you haven’t seen it yet. Make sure you hop along and leave comments!

Thanks for stopping by today!!

SpiegelMom Scraps December Blog Hop & Product Reveal



Hello everyone and welcome to our Sparklers Unit blog hop! I am here today to share a fun layout I made with some of the new products that Jody came out with this month. I am so in LOVE with all of the new sequin mixes!! A lot of them she made to go along with some of the new collections that have been coming out recently.

The Sparklers are split into two teams; The Blog Squad and the YouTube Squad.  Each month we come together to hang out here and bring you some great tips, technique and inspiration!  For this hop, you should have arrived here from Beth’s blog. Don’t you just LOVE her layout?!! It turned out so gorgeous!

Here’s the line up for today’s hop:

Crafty Meggy   >>>>YOU ARE HERE<<<<
Now let’s take a look at my little project I made for today! I am really excited about this cute little album. I have been wanting to make one since I got my first design team package from Jody back in August. She gave me a ton of glassine bags that would be perfect to make a mini album.
This is the front cover. I went with a cliche title because it was easy. I’m horrible at coming up with titles! I really love how it turned out!!
This is the first page. I stuck with 3 main colors, Grey, Pink and light blue/teal.
I used the new Build a Snowman sequin mix. I think this is one of my favorites out of the new mixes!! I had a little scrap piece of a doily so I decided to use it to cover up the cars in the top left hand corner of the photo. It worked out perfectly!!
I made this page a 6×6 and embellished it with more sequins.
 I love how the colors of the sequins in this mix go so well again this cork background paper.
For this page I decided to glue the photos onto a background paper and glue that onto the top of the glassine bag. I LOVE how it looks!
I cute this paper out in the shape of the bag. I thought it would look cool to do journaling on the photo so I used my Slick Writer Marker.
For the last page I decorated a glassine bag with Shimmerz Paints Texturez in The Tide That Binds.
Here’s a little closer look at the texturez on the glassine bag. I really LOVE it!!
