Kitaholic Kits August Challenge ~ So Happy!

Hi Scrappers,

Sharing my latest project using this months Kitaholic Kits, I get the Main scrapbook kit and the embellishment kit.  You can check them out here.

This months sketch,  I chose to flip the sketch on it's side for my layout.

I mounted my photos on white cardstock, then added a couple of pattern papers behind my photos as a base for my main focal point.


I loved the bird piece from the ephemera pack and wanted to add a bit more blue/green to the page, this piece was perfect.  Along with 2 little hearts and a gold glitter banner clip formed my 1st embellishment cluster.


Next I worked on my embellishment cluster to the right, I used a tag and label from the ephemera pack, with a wooden arrow and a couple of stickers.  I also added my journaling to the label.


My third and final embellishment cluster at the top of the photo included some small wood veneer and acrylic pieces from Corbet creations.


Here is a snapshot of the whole layout, I love how simple this layout was to put together - even better with a well coordinated kit!!

D-Lish scraps August Challenge ~ Look what I made

Hi everyone,

I’m back with a 12x12 layout using this month’s D-lish Scraps - Just add paper kit ‘Off the wall’.  I am also including my layout in their challenge for the month.

Here is a look at the sketch and mood board I am using for the layout.  The colours and paint splatters suited this photo of Sam so perfectly I had to scrap them for this challenge.




First off I layered my photos with black cardstock to form a border around them, then I mounted them on 2 pieces of scrap paper from my stash. I use 2 gelatos (yellow and blue) to colour one of the cogs from the kit and added a little orange to the centre. I finished off my embellishment cluster with a piece of blue fabric and the brick style cut out (both from the kit too).

Next I added paint splatters (I used the stencil from the kit, with some grey paint and texture paste) to the top and bottom corners where my photo and title were going to be placed.



While the paint was drying I worked on my bottom embellishment cluster - 
Orange coloured cog, with green button, some wood veneer chevrons then added my title.



Here is a final look at the whole completed layout. If you would like to check out my process video you can find it on my Youtube channel here.

Winter Planner Layout Share

Hi Scrappers,

Morgyn here with a slightly different project share for you - a planner spread.  I am again using the July Scrapping Fun Kit - this kit is just so versatile.

I decided to decorate the week I am going to the snow, how perfect is this kit for a snow holiday???
I just love the little snowman sticky notes (I could have used these all over the page lol).



A little close up of the left side - I used both types of washi on the layout, then I cut down a piece of the present paper and a cute snowflake as a small embellishment cluster in the middle.


Right side of the layout - Again I used both the washi tapes to decorate then added a couple of left over pieces from my previous 2 projects (check them out A4 layout and mini cards).  The sliver star tag and present paper on 2 squares, and I fussy cut the Hot Chocolate embellishment for the bottom.  As a finishing touch I tied the silver snowflake charm to some red twine to use an a page marker.

Hot Chocolate A4 Layout ~ Scrapping Fun Kits

Hi Scrappers,

Morgyn here with my 2nd project using the July Scrapping Fun kit.

The Hot Cocoa words in this kit just begged to be used for these photos of me having a hot chocolate last year.  We were going on a little family drive and decided to stop for warm drinks, my darling husband snapped a series of photos of me.


I used these a minty green 6x6 pattern paper as my photo mat, then added this neat brown tile paper behind the photo mat.  Than I got set to work on making my embellishment clusters.  In the top left I used part of the hot chocolate 3x4 card 'today is a ...' to make the start of my title.  I used the flower to cover up the other dots, so the title made sense.


Next I worked on the bottom embellishments.  I used the other part of the 3x4 card to make the end of the title 'kind of day'.  Along with the cute cup (so love this little piece) and a couple of gems.


Finally I fussy cut the Hot Cocoa words to finish off the title 'today is a ... Hot Cocoa kind of day'.
I added a little piece of washi tape and the 'hug in a mug' flag to the top right corner of the page, splatted on some brown inks and called the page done.


I don't usually scrap with brown and certainly not a whole page of it, but I really liked how this turned out, so perfect for a hot chocolate layout.  I would love it if you checked out my process video for this layout, you can view it here.

Greeting cards ~ Scrapping Fun Kits

Hi Scrappers, Morgyn here with a couple of quick cards I made using this months Scrapping fun kit, you can subscribe here and get your own.


The first card is a little greeting card with a wintery theme.  I will (hopefully) be attending a Christmas in July themed party this month and this card will be perfect to attach to a secret Santa gift.  I used a small strip of the present paper and trimmed down the 3x4 filler card to make my card front.  I added 2 little bling bits to the snow flakes, then tied a piece of red ribbon to finish it off.



My next card I decided to make a birthday card for my Husband.  Despite the Christmas colours of the paper I thought it worked really well as a birthday card.  I added some twine to the silver star tag for the card front, then used Kaisercraft letter to spell out Happy Birthday + a little bit of bling to finish it off.


These cards only took about 15 minutes to complete, which I think is super quick and means there is no excuse not to give a handmade card.  If you would like to check out my process video for these you can view it here.

Through the lens ~ A4 Layout

Hi Scrappers,

Morgyn here with my 2nd project using the scrapping fun kits June Kit, you can find my first project here.

This kit was screaming to be used on a nice feminine layout.  I don't have many photos of myself (naughty I know) but then I remembered this lovely picture I took of my Nana and my son Roman and it was just perfect to create a layout.


First off I used a brayer with some heavy body acrylic paint (red and white) to create my background, I gave it a sort of ombre effect of dark to light up the page.  Then I added some grey splatters over the page - at this point I really didn't know where I was going with this layout.


Next I made my paper layers behind the photo, I used the heart paper and a small strip of the dotty paper, part of the doily and some washi tape.  I added a rose die-cut and then made a little embellishment cluster to the bottom of the photo.  


Finally I cut the journal card in half and used half on the right side of the layout with some washi tape and a crochet flower to form my journal space.  I made notes about the photo and how roman was starring lovingly at his Great Nana and giving her a lovely smile.


That's my layout complete.  I really love this layout the colours and floral aspects are so perfect for this photo - I can't stop starring at it lol.  If you would like to watch my process video for this layout please check it out HERE.

Morgyn ~ June Kit ~ Greeting Card


Hi everyone 

Morgyn here with my first project using the June Scrapping Fun kit.  I haven't made cards in such a long time and these kits have been perfect for cards so I decided to make another card this month.  I am on a roll with cards, my stash will be full again in no time.




I adore the rose washi tape that's in the kit so had to use it on this card and it matches perfectly with the flower cut-aparts.  I made a little cluster with the cut-apart the cotton doily and the crochet flower, then popped the metal piece behind it.









I added 1 of the metal flowers to the centre of the flower and layered some sequins underneath.  I hand the Hello sticker from my stash, then finished it all off with some Gold Heidi Shine.


Here is the finished card. I will be sending this to a good friend in the near future.
