Morgyn ~ School Kit ~ Week 4 Travellers Notebook

Hi Scrappers, 
Morgyn here with my current weeks planner spread in my handmade Travellers Notebook.  I am using the School embellishment Kit to decorate this week.

I loved the rainbow star washi tape and decided to use that as inspiration for the rest of the spread.  I used them as my check boxes for both of my to-do lists.  I used the alphabet washi tape to make a little boarder above my meal planning section.

On the left side of the spread I labeled all my days of the week and dates in multiple colours - to match the star washi tape.  I used the back to school washi tape to label the first day of school for the year.  I also marked Australia day in green/yellow to keep with my multi-colouled theme.

I loved the cute apple paperclip and used it to mark the current week in my planner.  To the right of the image is all the pretty pens I used on this spread, how pretty is a rainbow of pens? :)

Thanks for stopping by

Sarah's Summer moodboard layout

Hello crafty friends, for this month's moodboard challenge, I loved the colours of the Summer moodboard. I did a Travellers Notebook layout for this one with a cute photo of my younger son showing off wearing his sunnies! Lets have a reminder of what the moodboard looks like;
Most of this layout was completed using the cut apart elements and cards from the December embellishment kit. I matted the photo on a crinkly, dotted paper bag I had in my stash and used a 'Happy Day' yellow frame to highlight his cheeky smile. The washi tape from the December kit is just adorable and is also featured on this layout.
To finish the layout off, I used a date stamp and some sequins to add some bling. I hope you enjoyed this layout. Until next time...

Sarah - January Kit - Happy New Year

Happy 2018 crafty friends! My layout today is in my Traveller's Notebook and it is celebrating how we saw the new year in. I am slightly addicted to the Travellers Notebook size of memory keeping at this time. I just love the ease of how a layout comes together - it doesnt need to be overly complex, and a simple layout can be just as pretty. This layout is using the January embellishment kit from Scrapping Fun Kit - be sure to get in quick if you havent gotten yours already!
I'm sure you will agree, but the handmade firework embellishments are an absolute hit from this kit. Raelene has outdone herself with these. It seemed perfect then when my husband suggested taking the boys to see the NYE fireworks....of course...perfect photo opportunity! Perhaps one of the hardest events to capture, I managed to get a few on camera for this layout. The washi tape, tags and flair are all gorgeous! I hope you enjoyed this layout....until next time!

Morgyn ~ Summer Kit ~ Travellers Notebook

Hi Scrappers,
Morgyn here with my latest Travellers Notebook scrapping layout.  I am using the Summer Travellers Notebook kit from Scrapping Fun Kits.
I took this photo of my 2 boys just the other day, while they were having a little paddle in the pool.  It was a super hot day and the temperature had got up to 41 where we live, so the cool water was most welcome for all of us late in the afternoon.

For the left side of the spread I used this green & white polka dot paper as my base - it matched the colour of the pool perfectly.  I added my title using the Alpha stickers from the kit along with a few others from my stash.  My title 'One fish, Two fish, Red fish, Blue fish' is from Dr Seuss which is one of our favourite authors to read with the kiddies.  I thought it was a perfect title for my 2 little fish.

I added some washi tape and embellishments to the bottom corner to finish off this side.

For the Right hand side of the layout I started with some painting the background with some orange/yellow Dylusions paint. Pure Sunshine is the colour name... to perfect for this layout right??
I added the summer paper piece and then my photo.
For the embellishments I used 2 bits of washi tape in the top right corner ('Monday' is from the basic's kit).  The little fish sticker was a great addition to the page and suited the title very well.
I added the date and my journaling to finish off the page.

I love how this little layout came together in about 25 minutes.  Travellers Notebook is the perfect size for documenting the little things quickly and easily, plus the Scrapping Fun Kits are so well coordinated it makes it even easier! Subscribe to get your own here.

I have a process video up on my channel if you would like to see how I put this together.

Lisa - Summer Mood Board - Tag Set

It's time for the summer mood board challenge. Everyone loves summer and this mood board goes to well with the Scrapping Fun December Kit that I have used these embellishments along with items from my stash to make a "Fun in the Sun" tag set.

This tag set is a set of three. I started with all the tags together and did them all at the same time, making them flow from one to the other. My vision is to use them all in the one layout and have photos of my step-son in the pool already picked out.

I started with 4"x3" white cardstock. Trimmed top and bottom with this great summer washi tape from the December Kit. Then I cut the corners at the top of the cardstock on each tag, punched a hole in each and tied some blue raffia from the kit on each.

I have layered some paper in the background and a strip of striped paper from the kit through the middle. Along the bottom, I have used the blue gems from the Kit and then bordered the sides with the crotcheted leaves also from the December Kit. 

Filling the Centre of each tag with Embellishments from both my stash and the kit, I have made a very Summer Inspired tropical themed Tag Set.

I often find myself making tags but never using them in layouts, which is a shame. So, I hope to make my layout using these tags very soon and will update this blog with the finished product.

UPDATE: As promised here is the layout I used the tags on, I also used the Scrapping Fun December Embellishment Kit to do this layout with a couple of papers from my stash.

Lisa - January Kit - New Years Eve '96

Welcome to 2018 !!! This is my first layout for the year using the New Years themed January Embellishment Kit from Scrapping Fun Kits.

As I am usually asleep by midnight on New Year's Eve (I know... Party Pooper LOL)I have chosen some photos taken back in 1996 on New Year's Eve. Amazingly the colours in these old photo's matched so well with the Kit.

What an awesome piece of chipboard that came with the kit. I coloured it by putting an undercoat of Gesso. Then some Antique Gold Kaisermist and to finish it off I dabbed a gold stamp pad over the top.

I have used the Gold Stars from the Kit to embellish around the chipboard and the gold 96 is from my stash.

The Kit includes some gorgeous patterned paper which I have used as layers under the 4"x2.5" photos which I matted onto white cardstock.

A simple Embellishment cluster using all items from the Kit and 97 alphas from my stash to bring in the new year.

Now, this is my favourite part, those handmade firework flowers are just to die for. They add such an impact to the page and give it great dimension too. A+ for making these Raelene.

I hope you enjoy creating with this embellishment kit as much as I did.

Morgyn ~ Summer Kit ~ Moodboard

Hi Scrappers, 

Morgyn here with my take on the moodboard challenge (pictures below). You can find all the information on how to enter here.

I have once again gone with a travellers notebook spread for my layout - this is my favourite size to scrap with at the moment. I have used the current Summer kit for my layout .

I used this fun paper as my background piece and added just a couple of embellishments from the summer kit. The t-shirt sticker said Fun in the sun so I cut a sun piece of washi tape from the basics kit and added it to the shirt I also used the number 25 from the basics kit to add the date. 
I really liked the rainbow gradient word from the moodboard and it was inspiration for my title.  The fun multicoloured alpha set that came in the summer TN kit was perfect for this. 

I printed a film strip of 3 photos from our day at Dreamworld making sure to use the photo of Sam eating his giant rainbow ice cream.... just so I could use the super cute Watercolour ice cream washi tape.   Adding in a couple more little embellishments and calling this one done, nice and simple today.
