Scrapping Fun Kits ~ Travellers Notebook ~ 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.

Colour Blast February mixed media kit unboxing

Hi scrappers,

I just wanted to quickly share with you all this new kit club.  It's is by Colour Blast and is a great little mixed media kit.  This is the first month of their bi-monthly kits.

As an early bird subscriber I scored these extra goodies on top on my monthly kit;
Heavy Gesso in white and black and a colour shimmer cube in Apple of my eye.

Now on to the main kit

Each kit we get a couple of Colour Blast products along with lots of other goodies to create with.
This month we got a colour spray in Deep Water and a colour paste in Safron.

How cool are these exclusive die cut pieces?!

We also get some other neat mixed media products which will be perfect stash builders.
Stitched circle stamp set, black bling form Uniquely Creative and a Kaisercraft Script stamp.

To add a bit of dimension there is this neat lace/fabric which reminds me of a loofa.  Some card bases (they even have a monthly card competition and sketches in the booklet) + a sheet of printed tissue.

I adore these 2 pieces; Cross stitched nested banner dies and Colour Blast stencil.

Assorted 12x12 paper and cardstock;
Kaisercraft cardstock in Liquorice, coconut, weave, sea foam, cheddar and flamingo
7 Dots Studio papers from the 'Paint Chips' range.

I can't wait to get started with my kit goodies and create some lovely art journal pages, be sure to follow my YouTube channel and of course here on the blog to see what I create.

I have also done an unboxing video of the Colour Blast February kit, you can view it here (my mini side kick even helped out a little 😃)

Travellers Notebook ~ Baby's 1st month

Hi Scrappers,

I am here to share the next part in my travellers notebook series, documenting the first year of each of my boys.  This is their 1 month photos and info.

For this one I used some Kaisercraft pattern paper as my background piece, I trimmed it down to size then cut it in half to fit on each side of the spread.

I matted my photos on a piece of embossed vellum, it has these wonderful little gold dots all over it.  Then I made a little embellishment cluster in the bottom and top corners of the page.

I used this 'A LITTLE NOTE' stamp which was from Blinks of Life for my journalling spots, adding in a little info about each boy at 1 month old.

Lastly I added the BABY title which I had cut from the Crate Paper 'Little Your' collection.

I would love for you to come over and check out my process video for this layout,

Valentines Tag mini album Process video ~ Aussie YouTube Hop ~ Summer Love

Hi Hoppers,

If you have come here from the YouTube, welcome!  If not go and check out our current hop here.

For this month our theme was Summer Love, so we could choose either a love/Valentines or Summer.  I chose to make a Valentines tag book for my husband, we don't usually celebrate Valentines day but I thought this would be a nice little surprise gift for him.

For the covers of the album I cut out 2 circles using my Big Shot and a large circle die (I will list all the products I used below).  I embossed the front piece with a rose embossing folder and used some Twinkling H20's Shimmering watercolours and Colour Blast Colour Shimmer Pots.

These are 3 of the tags inside and my back cover.  Please check out my Process video to see how I have put each of these together.

This is my favourite tag in the book, I just love how the watercolour background came out and the dotty embossing folder stand out so well.

Head over and check out our current YouTube hop, we are having so much fun putting these together for you a few times a year.  This months sponsor is Scrapping Fun kits, who is giving away one of their monthly embellishment kits, as always we appreciate it if you so your love for our sponsor by checking out their website and facebook page.

Hello There ~ Soul Sisters Jan/Feb card challenge

Hi Scrappers,

Sharing one of my latest projects with you today, this watercolour card I created using this months mood board from the Soul Sisters group.

How pretty is this moodboard?

To start I used a piece of Prima Marketing watercolour paper to make my background along with a set of watercolour paints.  I went with pink tones for the background with a few splatters of gold as an accent.

For the flowers/balloons I grabbed a white tag (with black writing) and using the orange/yellow tones I created a few circles, once it dried I drew some random circles around the outside.

I finished the card off with a few little gem accents and 2 chipboard pieces.  For the label tag I used 1 from a set of Heidi Swapp tags and covered it in some pearlex which gave it an amazing pearl finish.

Please see below for a list of materials used

You can watch the whole process here:

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.

New Year Planner Layout

Hi Scrappers

Happy New Year!!

Morgyn here with the first blog post of 2018 WOOHOO!! 
I am starting off the year by sharing my week 1 planner spread using this months Scrapping Fun embellishment kit.

I am using a travellers notebook that I printed and made myself this year as my weekly planner, you can see how I made it here.

On the left hand side I used the dark purple firework washi tape as a border on the top of the page.     I also used the super cute tassel clip to mark this page in my planner.  I used Staedtler Triplus Fineliner (purple) to add the days of the week and the dates to my page.

On the right hand side I used this super cute multicoloured firework washi tape to make a border on the bottom of the page.  I added in a meals section and to do list (I must have in all my planners) with my Fineliner pen also.

That's all for this weeks spread you can purchase your own kits here.
