Sarah - February Kit - Brotherly Love

Hello crafty friends, Sarah here again with a second layout using the fabulous February Scrapping Fun embellishment kit. With two layouts down, there is still so many embellishments left in this kit....such great value!
This is a photo of my two boys holding hands one evening as we went for a walk. With any children, it's nice to capture these kind moments to one another when they happen and documenting them for future memories. This is an 8.5X11 inch layout for my family album.

As in my last layout for the February embellishment kit, I created colour in the background using my gelli plate. This time it was a round plate using Brushos. Brushos are a highly pigmented powder water colour that is activated with water. I tapped some Brusho powder on to my gelli plate and activated it with my water brush. I then flipped the plate over and pressed on to the Kaisercraft cardstock. See below for pictures of how this was done. Be sure to dry in betweebn each colour application. The colours I chose were to pick up on the colours in my son's shorts in the photo.
I matted the photo on some crinkled, red tissue paper. The heading is positioned on some washi from the kit and the LOVE is a cut out also from the embellishment kit. The green puffy letter stickers are from D-Lish Scraps.
I hope you enjoyed this layout and will be sure to get all your embellishment needs at the Scrapping Fun website at

Lisa - February Kit - Great Nan

Hello again, this is my last layout using the February embellishment kit from Scrapping Fun Kits and what a great kit it was. So versatile, I got three, embellishment heavy, 12x12 layouts from the one kit. One for a boy, one a girl and a vintage 12x12 layout all from the one kit, now how versatile is that !!

This is my Great-Grandmother, Emma (Amy) Herne Dudgeon, nee Hannigan. She lived to 99 years of age. This is her 94th Birthday in 1985. I was 12 years old.

I started with a cream/beige colours background and distressed the edges with Vintage shade ink pad from Kaisercraft.

The papers behind the photo are all scraps from my stash, I store them colour coded in A4 Ziplock bags especially for times like this. I have ink distressed all the edges of all the papers & cut aparts.

The Title is made from painted wood veneer lettering for the word "Great" and some very old Heidi Swapp lettering, that was in my stash for "Nan". Great Nan is what we called her 💖

The photo is originally in colour but the colours were quite harsh (Dark Blue's & Orange) so I decided to turn it, Black & White. I printed it on the Canon Selphy and ink distressed the edges as well. I used the top of a small tag from the Kit cut-apart at the top of the photo and embellished it with a small button.

On the left-hand side of the photo, I have used some mulberry paper flowers/leaf I have had in my stash for a while. They were quite bulky so I squished the white ones down and removed the little foam ball from the centre of the pink one.

I have used the gorgeous wood veneer hearts from the kit and added a Vintage button to the centre of the rose where the bulky foam ball was before. I find the buttons go really well with Vintage designs.

To the right of the photo, I have used mostly items from the kit except for the Vintage Button. Charity stores are a great place to find buttons, especially vintage ones.

I laid down the large tag and then embellished it. The wood veneer "Love" word heart fit so well on top of the lace heart. I did darken it a bit with some pink and then vintage ink.

I painted some of the tiny wood veneer hearts brown and added them to the Love Bingo Card, framed by the gorgeous metal rose. Then added some raw Wood veneer hearts along the bottom of the tag.

I hope you enjoyed this layout, it was very special to me.

See you all next month. Take Care !!

Lauren ~~ Back to School Kit - 8.5 x 11 layout #2

When I said previously that once I started creating with the great back to school embellishment kit I couldn't is second layout. Another 8.5 x 11 to fit in back of page protector of previous layout.

This time I ripped out a piece of A4 lined paper out of old notebook and used tiny attacher to staple it to the 8.5 x 11 cardstock.

I added the photo straight onto the layout without layers, and set about cutting out some cut a parts from the cut a part sheets included in the embellishment kit.

I added the circle journaling spot and the beautiful crochet red apple to bottom right of the photo. Starting the embellishment cluster strong!

The cut a part banners and the blackboard looking sign helped the embellishment cluster grow and support the photo to the right.

Some amazing blue metal flowers were added to sprinkle the embellishments and texture around the cluster.

To highlight the photo some more I added some scribble lines as a border.

Simple but amazingly brilliant layout that was easily put together with the add  of the back to school embellishment kit.

Thanks for visiting and don't wait any longer to get your scrappy hands on this unique and amazing back to school kit.

Morgyn ~ Scrapping Fun Kits ~ Travellers Notebook Kit ~ Colour Fun Run

Hi Scrappers, Morgyn here sharing my latest layout using the Summer Travellers Notebook kit (and some of the promo kit Raelene had given me) from Scrapping Fun Kits.

I love how perfect this photo is to use with the Summer kit.  Sam had a colour fun run at his school late last year and this was the after photo.  He was given the pair of yellow sunglasses he is wearing, how wonderful is the sunglass paper and sticker to match?

For the left hand side of the spread I used a paper from my promo kit as the pink matched the splatter on the other side.  I used the blue boarder strip down the middle and a piece of the pink/yellow washi tape.  I mounted my photo on a yellow embellishment piece and used the rainbow letters for my title.

On the right side of the layout I used the sunglasses paper for my background, then I cut out the pink 'summer splash' from an embellishment card.  Together with the sunglasses sticker they made a neat embellishment cluster.  For my journalling spot I trimmed down a journal card and used a green boarder sticker to make another little cluster.

This page came together so quickly and easily (it helps that all the kit pieces coordinate together.

Lauren ~~ Traveler's Notebook Promo Kit -- Spring Landscape photo layout

There are wonderful promo kits that Raelene has been providing the design team in preparation for the release of the Traveler's Notebook Kit in autumn.

I started this layout with a horizontal 4 x 6 photo that depicted how the layout started.

I turned the TN insert sideways and placed the photo on the top half.

Was then so much fun to play with the cards and tags and washi and die cuts to arrange a beautiful spring inspired cluster on the bottom side.

Was then nice to balance the whole layout off with a title and some die cut flowers to top right side of photo and layout. 

Enjoy the close ups and the final photo of full layout of the TN insert layout. 

Make sure keep eyes peeled for the grand reveal and start of TN kits, starting with Autumn kit. You can subscribe in preparation for the wonderful kits so you wont miss out....

Morgyn ~ Valentines Planner Spread ~ February embellishment kit

Hi Crafty people,

Morgyn here sharing my current travellers notebook planner spread using this months embellishment kit. It was too perfect for Valentines day 💕

Here are a couple of close ups of each page.

I used the wider heart washi tape to mark Valentines day.  I added a little title with my own red hearts too.  I used red and pink pens for my days & dates to match with the fun washi tape.

I trimmed the other washi tape in half lengthways to make a border at the top, then used the skinny washi at the bottom to mark off my meals section.  The gold 'love' paper clip was super perfect to mark my page in the planner (makes it nice and easy to find the week i'm up to).

Have a great scrappy day

Lauren ~~ February Embellishment Kit -- 12x12 "Love"

Morning everyone,

I was so in love (pun intended) with the February embellishment  kit that was hard not to hoard it. Also lately I have not be able to get enough  of the mixed media backgrounds. 

So i started off by misting water onto the background and then spraying  every  pink and red spray mist I own hehe. Once it was dried I sprinkled water on to the page and waited few  minutes before drying that with paper towel  - this leaves water resist marks which give depth and look of texture to the misted background.

Now it was time for the fun of making embellishment clusters and layers behind the photo. I chose a lovely photo of my sons with their great grandfather from last christmas and layer some of the paper and the heart gold doily behind it.

I then got to add some washi strips and the beautiful floral covered wood veneer. Also cut a part tag and phrase. Finishing it off with the big pink flower and hearts of the wood veneer and bling variety.

Because the misted background  covered the whole page i added a straight line border and drew some hearts along these  lines to draw eye into the page rather than it floating off.

Thanking you
