Welcome Megan Bickers

our newest Scrap Our Stash Design Team member. Megan has scrapbooked in some shape or form since she was little. She remembers helping her mom staple and glue scraps of greeting cards, wrapping paper, and memorabilia into large manilla books. Her babysitter introduced her to stamping when she was in elementary school (5th grade). She said she has always been involved in some craft or another, but scrapbooking really fills in all the gaps for her. She loves photography and documenting her family’s stories for her children, she creates her pages with multiple photos and her favorite supply—her stamps! Her scrapbooking developed more after her dad died five years ago and she wanted to use her photos and words to focus more on their relationships and not just the events. She enjoys teaching scrapbooking classes as her schedule permits and loves finding new ways to scrap her supplies.

Megan’s family is super supportive of her creative endeavors. She has been married for 12 years to her best friend. They have two elementary aged children (a boy and a girl), and their family wouldn’t be complete without their dog. They live in Texas and love spending as much time as they can outdoors.

Megan says she is very excited to be on the Scrap Our Stash Design Team because she has accumulated a large supply of products and loves creating with a challenge in mind. Stamps, are hands down what she has the most of in her stash. She has them consolidated down into a smaller footprint storage-wise, but they are her favorite tool and what she uses on just about every layout. If she had to pick a consumable product, it would have to be pattern paper. She said she is a sucker for beautiful designs and has quite a collection of papers too.

When asked how long her stash would last if she scraped one layout per day. Her resonse was “a LONG LONG time without HAVING to purchase anything else.” She did admit that she probably WOULD purchase something else, but who doesn’t love shopping for a good deal?”
Megan's Stash project is:

The Laughter of Children

Posted by PicasaShe used two sets of older Rusty Pickle stickers she'd been hoarding forever and some Basic Grey tag die cuts that she has also been collecting for a while now. She was challenging herself to use white cardstock as her layout base and to use several products she hadn’t used in a long time (stickers and die cut tags). Of course, she had to add some stamps to the mix, and she personalized the white background with some stamps and inks. The stickers were attached to the layout with pop dots and accented with stickles glitter glue. The buttons were added to give a 3-D look to the rest of the layout.

Megan is going to be a great contributor to the Scrap Our Stash Design Team. Maybe she'll even get some of us to use those stamps we've been collecting! Be sure to welcome Megan here and also check out her blog at to see more of her great work. Be sure to check back to meet the rest of the team - and make sure you're here on December 1st for our first Scrap Our Stash Challenge.

  3. Hi Megan..and Cograts. I am so inspired by this layout, I may just go "dig" out my BG box ... (I'd be ashamed to say that anywhere but here!!) Can't wait to see more of your work... and I'm off to see your blog now!

  5. Congrats Megan! Your layout is so nice. I love how you used so many pictures and the tags look like their borders. I love stmaping too but not very good with them on layouts. You can inspire me!
