Winter Happy Day Scrapbook Layout 27


I had said that I wasn’t going to do a video before the new year – but I just couldn’t resist!  🙂  I missed my scrap room too much! 🙂

I made this really sweet little page right in front of your eyes using:

  • Collage Press – Joyride Collection
  • Soda Bottle Caps
  • Zip Dry Paper Glue and the ATG
  • Ribbon
  • Prima Flowers layered with a bronze brad
  • Thickers from American Crafts (these are a really cool textured like vinyl, just awesome!)
  • …and that’s about it 🙂  A no Cricut Required scrapbook layout for some winter fun 🙂

Let me know what you think and comment away, can’t wait to show some more layouts in the near future 🙂

See you soon!

    I have got to get over my fear of pre-making layouts. I think it would save me time and be lots of fun! I just keep thinking, “BUT I MIGHT WANT AN EXTRA PHOTO (or ten) on there!” LOL!

  • Megan Gravener

    Rhonda, I SO know the feeling and i usually try to make the “pre-mades” very expandable – see by making the mattings 6×6, I can actually put two pictures cut down on each of the mattings, OR I can put one on each or two on one, etc….
    so if you can learn to think outside of the “boxes” that you make…it’s really a lot of fun and does save time.

    BUT I still love starting from my pictures and building my pages around them – that is my preference overall 😉

    Super cute layout! I have been itching to get out the scrap stuff and playing but decided to wait until the house has settled down some.
    First on the list is to watch my AtoZ dvd

  • Lisa

    LOOOOVVVVVEEEEE IT!!!!!! That was super cute. I love your scrapbook pages. They inspire me so much. It’s 11:45 pm here and I want to go scrap so bad now LOL!! I truely love this page. Good job.

  • Jen McLaughlin

    I agree I have a very hard time doing the premade but it makes sense to do the mat in 6X6. I’ve also found that now that I have my Cricut I tend to try to design my pages with that in mind. I forget that I’ve scrapped for 15 years without it!! LOL Cute layout.

  • Cindy

    Cute Megan. Happy Day!! lol. Thanks for sharing. Wanted you to no I got your dvd for xmas and WOW!! You cover so much on it! I took notes, but hey Im sure when Im in need,I’ll be pulling it out again. Love it and really feel like I got more than my moneys worth. Thank you!

  • Megan Gravener

    Thank you so much Cindy! It’s encouraging to hear and just makes me want to even do better the next go around! (Which honestly I think it will be better) But I am so glad you got alot out of it!

    Have a great Tuesday everyone!

  • Gloria Westerman

    Megan love your page, and I really like the paper… I got your DVD and have only seen a little of it…DH is home on vacation and I don’t think he wants to watch it with me.. (I dont know why???)LOL

  • tawnya

    cute page, i have a question, since you taped on the ribbion to the back page, do you use the the other side or do you do another page and tape the two together? thank you.

  • Brandi

    I agree with Rhonda H. I am trying to learn to premake layouts, but I really prefer to build around my pictures. Problem being, I need to develop more pictures… 🙂 Love the ribbon idea, that will save alot of my Xyron tape!!! Happy New Year!!

  • Kathryn

    I almost always build my pages around my pictures, but I love your idea of the two 6×6 pieces. Very versatile and super CUTE!! I can just picture your DH’s face when he caught you scrapbooking with his hammer! lol.

    Megan, you are such an inspiration for me. Your comment about things not having to be perfect was directed at me. I talk myself out of more than I get done. Thank you.

  • Jacqui

    I have tried using the Zip Dry glue but have had major problems with the nozzle clogging up. Am I do something wrong?- I do replace the cap after use.

  • Donna Cloud

    Loved the pre-made page and the paper is beautiful

    Megan, I have a question, I ordered your DVD(Love it) from the first order time, you said that it included a membership for ? Sorry I can’t remember, anyway I’m just wondering what it was and when it begins. Thanks

    Happy New Year Donna

  • Cynthia

    Totally Cute!
    Love the idea of using the bottle caps, I have a tin full of them but haven’t really used them. Thanks for the tip. HAPPY NEW YEAR Hope to see you at CHA Next year..;)

  • Debbie

    great layout. I have been so busy with Christmas and making cards that my scrapbooks are suffering and you made me want to get back to them. Loved the paper too, soooo cute.

  • Rose

    Can you find a use for poptops?! LOL Seriously,I enjoyed your A to Z video and really learned a lot from it. Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge with us.

  • Cathy-Lynn

    Your videos are so inspirational and I look forward everyday to seeing and learning more about this new hobby I’ve acquired. Your’re a great teacher and you make everthing soooo interesting. Thank you so much!!!

  • Kristie

    Did you know you can flatten the pop bottle caps with a Sizzix or with a Spellbinder? I haven’t done it with the Spellbinder, but I did see it on Youtube, I have used the Sizzix though. Don’t know if it would work with a Cuttlebug.
