Lauren ~~ Double Page Layout ~~ S.T.E.A.M.

Hey everyone and welcome.

I decided to narrow down collection of photos of my boys engaging in S.T.E.A.M. activities - so Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths. 
(it was very hard to narrow down to just two photos from each topic!)

I then used small card size paper to print via selphy the 10 photos, and tried experimenting with how to position them on the layout. I knew immediately that I would need to do a double layout due to amount of photos (even in their small size).

After a little while I had brillant idea to use black cardstock to make the photos and embellishments pop.

I kept the focus on the title and embellishment and the photos rather than many layers of papers and added embellishment clusters. 

So I backed the photo clusters with white cardstock and and found their position on the layout, leaving the bottom third of the right side layout for title and embellishment cluster. 

I commited to the photo positions and used white signo uniball pen to journal brief point about each - Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths in my boys life.  

It was then fun to play with the embellishment goodies in the April Scrapping Fun Kits to make a title and embellishment cluster to highlight the S.T.E.A.M. concept - which is a big part of my children's life!

I knew the wood veneer word was perfect title and starting point for the title and embellishment cluster.

I then layered the atom cutfile, robot charm, wood veneer science lab coat and homemade computer chip flair and the label ......and wella perfect embellishment and title cluster for this double page layout.

White doodley border FTW and we are done.

Simple but super Effective!!!!!!!!

thanking you, Lauren.

Sarah - Remember using the Autumn TN kit

Hello crafty friends, Sarah here with another Travellers Notebook layout using the Scrapping Fun Autumn TN kit!
This layout was a little self reflective and a good reminder of those few points I'd like to keep focused in my life. The patterned paper in the kit was cut in half and adhered down. The blue doliy and paper ric rac complimented the blue in the photo. It was the tag with 'remember' on it that inspired the layout - what do you take your inspiration from? Is it the photo, colours of the paper or perhaps an embellishment that catches your eye?

I layered a number of the tags and one of the cut aparts from the kit under my photo. The arrow, 'a day in the life' and 'dreams' cut aparts helped embellish the layout.
Lastly, I added the letter stickers that come in the kit to create various words - smile, have fun, relax and you've got this as key reminders for when I look back on this in times to come.
I hope you enjoyed this layout and will be quick to get your TN kit from Scrapping Fun Kits at

Lauren ~~ Galaxy Background ~ April Kit

Hey guys this was a super fun experimental layout.

I dragged out distress oxide inks to play and hope that it would look like a galaxy as a base to use April kit.

I smooshed purple, blue and grey oxide ink over the page, I then covered it with black to made the colour shine through and made it look like the colour has great depth (like a galaxy).

It was then fun to put white and black ink splatters around to look like stars and planets floating in space.

I border my photo of my boys with the star black and white paper, having it attached to the layout so that it looked like it was floating off the side of the page.

I then added the world motif and the moon, so looked like distance between them both. A rocket was a fun addition to make it look like it was travelling from the world to the moon.

A white signo pen was the perfect journaling pen.

You can check out process video to watch how I made the background and layout...

Thanks for checking out my layout.

Lauren ~~ Easter Moodboard ~ Travelers Notebook Easter throwback (layout without photos)

Hey Everyone, 

the Easter Moodboard was exciting and nice complimentary challenge for the March kits.

I did also use it as an opportunity to finally use some of my Easter Stash.

I dont have any childhood photos of Easter but I do have  memories that wanted to document.

So I had fun decorating the page before journalling.

The top Left section started with the adorable bunny washi, with ripped banner of purple patterned paper, word strips and sequin eggs.

I used the button eggs, as they too cute not to include.

Bottom Right corner was also a fun embellishment cluster, using strip of patterned paper some more word strips and sequin eggs.

I used some of my stash to fill in more gaps and get set journaling my heart out.

Hope you enjoyed this TN share.

Morgyn ~ Card, tags and Labels... Oh My! ~ April Kit

Hi everyone,

I have a bit of a different project to share with you all today.  This months Scrapping Fun Kit was based around a S.T.E.M (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths).  At first I didn't know what I was going to create, but after looking at all the cute little pieces I realised I could make a few things.

First up is this little card I made for Sam to give to his best buddy (he is turning 6 soon).

Next up I wanted to make a little tag that I could put on his gift, so I cut out a tag shape from some cardstock.  Added 2 strips of washi tape to the bottom then fussy cut the rocket ship and added a couple of sequins.  The blue twine was left over from a previous kit.

I still had this adorable wood veneer  (shout out to Jodi at Corbett Creations) pieces that I really wanted to use.  I thought for a bit then realised they would be perfect as folder labels for our homeschool subjects.  I cut down some white card stock to 2x3 inches attached a strip of washi tape to each, glued down a wood veneer and added some alphas from my stash - it doesn't get much easier than that, and they look so adorable!

I do have a short process video up on my channel if you want to watch me make all this goodies.

Thanks for stopping by

Morgyn xx

Raelene - Easter Moodboard - Bunny Eggs

Today I am sharing my layout for the Easter Moodboard.

I decided to scrap photos of my boys with their eggs from a few years ago.

I started by using 2 of the papers from the March Embellishment kit to create some layers across my Kraft TN Insert from the Basics Kit, ten added the photos to the purple egg paper.
I added the bunny washi from the March Embellishment Kit and this lovely autumn feeling washi from the Autumn TN Kit to the top and bottom of the layout so there wasn't so much brown showing.
I then added words from the cut apart, eggs fussy cut from the journal card and the gorgeous bunny charm to finish off my layout.
This was a very quick layout to create which was really important as I only had 20 minutes of craft time on the day.

Here is the March Embellishment Kit, that I used for majority of this layout.
There are still a couple of these kits available so if you would like one head to the Subscription Tab and fill in the form.  Enter March in the promo code box so I know you want a March kit.

If you would like to enter the Moodboard Challenge just head to the Challenge Tab for details.

Lisa - April Kit - To the moon and back

Hello again and welcome to my second layout using the Scrapping Fun April embellishment kit.

The photo I have used is one of my favourite photos of my Grandson stargazing with Mummy.

I have used a black cardstock for the background and matted the photo on several layers of printed cardstock one of these being from the Kit. I have then used the washi to add a little colour but not too much.

As the title, I have used the cut apart from the Kit and just highlighted the word Moon with a black Artline pen. 

I embellished under the title with some Green raffia in a bow tied to the metal Molecule/Atom Symbol and Wood veneer geometric compass.

Moving up the right-hand side of the page, I have used some tiny words from my stash on the side of the photo and tucked the Earth patch from the kit under the photo.

I have used the Moon Sticky in the corner which I mounted on a piece of black card to give it some stiffness and then tied some more green raffia around it as if to "Lasso" the moon. I am not sure if you can see but there is some plastic mesh under there which I have anchored the lasso too.

Moving over the left side of the photo I have used the cut apart stars and tag/label to add some balance, interest and journalling.

The white "splatter" type cardstock under the journalling tag I made with a Kaisercraft template and some gesso. I was going to use it as my full background but it was too much so cut it down instead.

A Little washi from the Kit on the side again for Balance and I have tied some more raffia to the mesh anchor on this side which goes into the corner.

I really loved the way this layout turned out all thanks to the gorgeous Scrapping Fun Kit which provided so much inspiration. See you all next time.
