So, let’s jump into my layout:
I had SO much fun making this layout!! I decided to use some cute hearts from Nicolle’s store. They go perfect with the title I decided on for this title.
If you’ve been following me for a while you will know that I’m obsessed with chevrons and arrows. I really love this pattern paper so I have to cut it up and make little arrow banners.
I just had a little bit of journaling for this photo and so I decided to hide it behind the photo in a glassine bag. I used a large tag from the shop to write the journaling and I added a May Arts String in Raspberry to the top of the tag to make it look pretty.
I felt like the cute heart chipboard needed a little bit of some oomph so I added some Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Gold and I love how it looks on the layout! I used Pandora’s Ombre and Rockin’ Pink Ombre sequin mixes from the shop.
You can watch my process video here:

Crafty Meggy   >>>>YOU ARE HERE <<<<

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!

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!

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!!
You can watch my process video below or on my YouTube channel:
