Crazy Tree Trimmers | Meggy Blethen

Hello Scrapbookers!! This is Meggy and I am back with a fun Christmas tree trimming layout. I had so much fun using a few of the Christmas shop releases.

I absolutely love the tree cut file and since we were decorating the tree they worked perfect to frame my photo.

Make sure to grab this cut file for all of your Christmas Tree trimming layouts!

I also used the Christmas Banners cut file to give the top of the layout a little more ballance.

And the star Christmas Tag was perfect as an extra embellishment.

I added a few pieces of ephemera in the top corner with the Christmas Banner file.

I love how the white alpha goes really well with the background and the cut files.

I love this cluster with the cut files and the cut little embellishments.

I backed each of the trees with a pretty patterned paper and added the last part of the title under this cluster of trees.

I just love how the cut files all work together even thought I used 3 different ones! I challenge you to use more than one cut file on a layout! It is a lot of fun.

I had so much fun creating this layout! Make sure to grab these cut files in the shop for yourself this holiday season! I hope you have a wonderful season!

12 Days of Christmas Giveaway – Wish Day 9

Hello scrapbookers! Meggy here today, welcome to Day 9 of the Christmas Giveaway. I am so excited to share my layout in this series.

For my page, I decided to use the negative cut of this file and I absolutely LOVE how it turned out.

I wanted the word ‘wish’ to stand out and then the rest of the title to be subtle so I used a white alpha.

I love how the star turned out with the mixed media spray around it.

I thought for this layout it would be fun to show the contrast of my kids Christmas Wishlists changing over the years. So this first photo is of my two older boys when they got toy laptops for Christmas.

And then show in 2016 when they got a real laptop!

I just love it!!

Celebrate Happy Times | Meggy Blethen

Hello CUT to YOU fans! I am back today with a very special layout. I don’t know about you but I absolutely LOVED all of the new release floral cut files this month so I knew I had to make a layout using them.

That is exactly what I did with this layout of my scrappy bestie and I, having a fun night out celebrating her birthday. At first I thought I’d only use one of the florals from the release but I had them all sitting out on my desk when I started making my layout and they all looked so pretty. I decided the layout needed all of them

I wasn’t sure if I’d like using 3 different flowers on a layout, but in the end I think it looks amazing. I really love how the clusters frame the photo!

I also added some fussy cut florals from an Auburn Lane patterned paper.

I wanted the cut files to stand out against the background so I used a green patterned paper to back the leaves on each flower and then a pretty pink with gold pattern paper for the flower itself.

I had also cut out the ‘Happy Times’ cut file to use as a title and I absolutely love how that looks with the gold alpha as part of it.

I used one of the flowers from the Daisy Trio cut file to add a little pop behind the word ‘Celebrate’ in the title.

For this cluster under the title I cut off some of the leaves from the Rosey Posey cut file and added them as another embellishment. I love how it looks!

Thanks for stopping by today! I have a process video for you to watch on my youtube channel below:

Life of a Crafter | Meggy Blethen

Hello Scrapbookers!! I am back today with a cut file released back in July. I don’t know about you buy I love being a crafter and scrapping about it. Back in 2017 I rearranged my craft room and took photos of the process. I loved the cute Craft a Happy Life cut file and it worked perfect with this photo of my craft room in disarray.

As you will see though, I did alter the title part of the cut file to fit my subject. I have more photos that I want to add in a pocket page after this layout that will show the organizing and cleaning process even more than this one does. As someone who is in my craft room a lot, I am always organizing and rearranging things to work better for myself. I decided to cut out a different title but use the alpha from the cut file.

Make sure to grab a copy of this cut file in the shop.

I love how the pink glitter paper pops off of the light colored background. For the smaller alpha I used American Crafts ‘Happy Life’ Thickers. The most important words of the title I wanted to stand out the most.

I adore the cute little paint brushes and cup holding them. I backed them with a pretty purple paper and added a couple of stickers around the cut file.

I really love how this layout turned out! I actually had started out on a different path at the beginning, which you can see in the process video below, or on my YouTube channel.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful day!

Watch Duty | Meggy Blethen

Hello friends!! I am back again today with a fun Halloween themed layout. For this one I thought it’d be fun to focus on my dog, Max. I love these photos of him watching the candy bowl as we waited for trick or treat-ers.

I used the Halloween 1 cut file for this layout.

I thought the word, ‘Boo’ was so cute and love the spider web. Here’s a look at my finished layout

I loved how the teal and orange colors popped off of the black patterned paper. I was glad I turned the photos black and white so that I could use whatever color papers to embellish.

The orange paper I used to back the cut files is actually from a birthday collection! Isn’t that funny? I just turned it upside down and at an angle so you couldn’t see the balloons and words printed. It worked out so well with this pretty teal paper as an accent. I aslo used some Shimmerz Paints Snow Storm spray mist.

I knew I wanted to have 3 clusters on this layout so when I cut out my files this time around I cut out 2 of the half spider webs. They worked perfectly as a base for each cluster.

I love using multiple photos and this cut file helped me cluster the photos along with the file on a grid and it looks so perfect!

I LOVE the font of the word ‘BOO’, but since this layout wasn’t really about Max being scared or scaring anyone I decided to not focus on it as part of the title. I did want to use sequins to outline each letter though. Sequins make everything better! 🙂

You can watch my process video below. Thank you so much for stopping by! Are you getting in the fall/Halloween mood and starting to scrap with these themes? We’d love to see your layouts over on the facebook group!

 

Bubbles of Fun | Meggy Blethen

Hello Scrapbookers!! This is Megan with you today and I have a super fun and simple layout for you using the Bubbles cut file! When I saw this one I immediately knew I had the perfect bath photos for it!

image1
I don’t know about you, but when my kid we’re little I took so many photos of them taking baths! I thought these photos of my youngest were so cute playing with the bath toys
image3
My first thought was to outline the cut file with sequins but when I got started I decided I wanted the white cut file to shine by itself.
image4
I added some clusters around a few of the bubbles and outlined a few of them as well. This makes them pop but also gives them the subtle look I was going for.
I hope you enjoy this layout! I will have a process video up on my YouTube channel this weekend!

Make sure to pop over to the shop to grab this adorable cut file. You can view my process video below!

Thanks guys,
