Morgyn ~ June Kit ~ Behind the lens

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.

Thanks for stopping by

Tracey- June Kit- Forever Friends

Hey everybody! How has everybody gone with their June kit?

I'm back today with my last layout for the month which is called Forever Friends.

I started this layout with a piece of patterned paper from my stash, I then used the Candy Kaisermist with the packaging technique.











I really wanted a bold photo mat so I used a piece of hot pink cardstock to mount my photo on too.  I then added a 'half mat' of patterned paper from the kit and then proceeded on to my last mat which was my favourite paper from this months kit.

Because the paper in my last photo mat is so bold, I wanted to continue that up in the top right corner, so stuck that down and then continued to create my main point of focus for the layout.  I chose to add a doily from the kit under my photo so that I had a bit of a mat for my embellishments to sit on.













I stuck my photo down and started to arrange the top layer of my embellishments. I felt as if the small space under the photo looked a bit strange and added the beautiful vintage ribbon from the kit to fill the space, and what a perfect job it did! I then added the large metal charm and the stunning handmade flower to the corner of the photo, the fabric button and a wooden heart to make a cluster.













At this stage, I'm thinking that my layout is complete, so I added my title, Forever Friends. I then spotted the tiny beads that were included in the kit, I knew that I wanted to use them but I didn't know how, so I had a think and then thought that I could messily add some texture paste around the photo and pressed the beads into the texture paste before it dried. I really love the interesting texture that this creates.

With this months kit we received a tassel, I have never used a tassel before so this was a bit of a frightening endeavour for me, but I think all worked out well.  I chose to attach it to the patterned paper and surrounded it with a sequin and a wooden heart, also from the kit. I also added to the cluster by sticking down two chipboard pieces from my stash.







Here is my finished layout.

Lisa - June Kit - Princess

Hello again and welcome to my 2nd Layout using the Scrapping fun June Kit. This is sooo different from my first one and a little bit of a mixed media experiment, to be honest. 😀

I used a pink Kaisermist on a piece of white cardstock. When it dried I used a damp brush and painted over it. I let it dry and then splattered it with Pomegranate Glitter Mist.


Once completely dried I tore the edges and used a Vintage colour Kaisercraft Ink pad to further distress the edges then mounted it onto Blue 12x12 cardstock.

I chose 2 photos of my daughter dressed up as a "princess" when she was 4 years old. Even though one photo she looks quite sad I wanted to use both photos. I think it's important to show photos where we are not always happy.




I used 2 x Kit patterned papers which I trimmed with pink ink behind the 2 Photos that I matted onto white cardstock.

Using a mixture of kit embellishment and those from my stash I clustered them to the right of the photo. I used the wood veneer hearts, pink metal roses, pink centred daisy and Filigree all from the June Kit. These complimented the stash epoxy flairs & dress die cut very well.




I then used half the paper doily to mount my journal block on. The Journal block was cut into a half circle from hot pink cardstock that I had left-over from another project.









I have used gold foil alphabet stickers from the Reject Shop for the title and a wood veneer heart from the Kit to dot the "I".

In the end, I think this layout turned out well and the June Kit adds a beautiful embellished experience to these simple photos.

Morgyn ~ June Kit ~ Greeting Card

Hi everyone 

Morgyn here with my first project using the June 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.


Thanks for stopping by to check out my latest project.  If you would like to watch my process video for the card you can view it here.

Raelene - June Kit - Pink Planner Spread

Hi Scrapping Fun Fans.
Raelene with you today sharing a spread in my planner.  Morgyn and myself were discussing our planner funk and so I challenged her to do a planner spread each month using the current kit and she returned the challenge.  Hopefully this will get us both planning more as using my planner really does help me.

In addition to the Tassel Clip in the Kit I made a clip with one of the Fabric Buttons so that I would have a couple of cute clips availabe to bookmark important things this month.

I also have some cute clips that I got from the Studio Fourteen 40







As I had used the gorgeous rose washi from the June Kit to reinforce my pages I wanted  to add some 7mm rose washi I got from Chiogami Designs about 3 years ago to my page edges to help balance things.
I trimmed it in half lengthways so that it didn't go over onto the days of the week.
If you haven't done this before just place a strip of washi (I prefer to go a little longer than I need) on  the cut line of your trimmer so that it is approximately half way on each side  of the cut line and trim.












I also used one of the flowers from the cut apart in the June Kit in the bottom right corner to cover the checklist.

The cute mailbox sticker is from Lady B Creations mark when I will be posting the July kits to those who have paid.

















As mentioned previously June's kit is inspired by friendship and one of my best friends who inspired this kit is celebrating her 40th at the end of the month so instead of sticking a birthday sticker on her Birthday I decided to theme the week using the June Kit.


I am looking forward to adding plans into this spread.

Today is the last day to take advantage of the discount code for renewing or starting a subscription in July, if you haven't renewed or subscribed yet and would love to get one of our kits in the mail then please fill out the form on the Subscribe Tab.

Lisa - June Kit - Love XOXO

Hello and welcome to my first Scrapping Fun Kit layout for June. I love the Pink floral theme of this kit.

I haven't matted the photo in this layout mainly because it is quite bold already and I wanted it to blend in amongst the flowers more than stand out.

I placed the kit white floral patterned paper behind the photo. I have fussy cut the kit printed roses and clustered them around the left side of the photo with the kit crocheted & handmade flowers. The lilies along the bottom are from my stash.I placed these without any adhesive first to make sure they fitted well and then took a photo of the layout before taking them off and sticking them down. I also used the crocheted doily, some wood veneer hearts and a button (all from the kit) to add a little more texture and balance.





Coming further across the bottom of the photo I used half a paper doily from the kit, The xoxo gold foil acetate embellishment is from Reject Shop. I always find it hard to adhere these without it showing through. I tried Tack-it Glue this time, its not very noticeable but has come through in the photography.






The kit tassel is just so soft and I have used this on the right corner of the photo to soften the black in the photo. I have clustered this with a kit button and kit wood veneer hearts. I cut the white flower chain to use the flowers separately and added one to this cluster.












Across the top of the page I have used the kit braided pink ribbon and trimmed it with some Pink silver trimmed ribbon I had in my stash.

Along the left bottom I have used another gold foil on acetate word "love" his is from reject shop. Again I have run the pink silver trimmed ribbon from my stash along the bottom of the page.









On the right bottom I have used the kit journal block and trimmed it with 2 white flowers from the kit and some flower shaped sequins I had in my stash.

I love how this layout turned out so soft and I hope you have enjoyed it too.

Tracey- June Kit- Mother's Day

Hey everybody, Tracey here on the blog today. How is everybody loving the June kit? I love the vintage feel that this kit gives off, it was perfect for some of my family photos!

To start off this page, I used a 12x12 piece of patterned paper that I bought in a pad from the Reject Shop, the paper is also pretty darn good quality too surprisingly, I'll be sure to go back to get more. Any who, I chose the pink wood grain because the colour was such a pretty shade and it matched with the kit and the wood grain themed in with the vintage feel to the kits pieces. I also sprayed the white Kaisercraft mist through the Kaisercraft 12x12 crackle stencil.


I  mounted the photo on a piece of the exclusive Scrapping Fun Kits paper and then fussy cut 3 of the rose cut outs to use in my clusters.  I mounted the back of my photo mat to a doily from my stash and then went ahead to colour the die cut rose from the kit.  To colour the rose, I sprayed the Pink mist by Kaisercraft on to a piece of plastic, I then used a darker pink from Colour Blasts (I can't remember the name sorry!) and layed the rose in the ink.  Once I had dried the rose I use the pink Colour Blasts mist to add a few splatters. Once the rose had been stuck down, I clustered some more of the kits embellishments, such as the wood veneer hearts, metal flowers and cotton flowers.

I then took the fussy cut roses that I had previously cut out and joined two of them using a small staple and adhered them to the corner of my photo, I used the die cut rose to cover up the staple.  I took my left over fussy cut rose and stuck the corner of it to the cute crochet doily that the kit included and then stuck them both to the opposite corner of the page. I carried on the same cluster of embellishments in this corner.

I wanted to keep my title simple, as usual. I went ahead with  'Mother's Day' because this photo was taken on Mothers Day this year- which happened to be my first! Yipiee!! To cut out the title, I use the Kaisercraft cursive capital die and plain white card stock.  I found that using a glue pen was the easiest way to glue down all of the letters because all of my other glues were too thick and blobby for such delicate work.

Lisa - May Kit - You're the Best Card


 Hello, I thought I would change it up today and do a card. I have loved making card since I was a child. My mum told me the other day, she has always loved my handmade cards they have just got a bit fancier now 😂

I have used some old Kodak 6x4 photo paper, that I found at the Op (Thrift) Shop for the white base.

The title was cut using my old original Cricut which I have mounted on a hanging flag of the Kit washi using the Kit Straw as the flag pole. I had some twine in my stash to fill the gap and add some more texture.

Across the bottom of the card I use a sea of the Kit Sequins & Beads, which I have adhered by painting PVA Glue across the bottom and sprinkling the Sequins & beads over it.

The left over layer of the Kits Handmade flower made a great base for a Red Flower I had in my stash along with a cork XO Circle Sentiment in the Middle.

I then mounted the the white 6x4 photo paper onto Black card and then again mounted that onto a White 5x7 Card a little off centre.





I Hope you have enjoyed my Card using the Scrapping Fun Kits - May Embellishment Kit. I am only new to card making so hope to do more of these in the future.

Now to find someone to give it to :)

Tracey- love you- May kit

Hey scrappers! I'm back today with another layout from the May kit, once again, a fairly simple layout.

I started off with black cardstock from Kaisercraft, I chose to mount my photo on a piece of the papers that we all received in our kits, for more interest, I layered two other pieces of kit paper under the photo.

My bottom cluster is my absolute favourite part of this layout because of its masculine flower that was hand made by the wonderful Raelene. I think she's done a wonderful job and making something so feminine appear to be so grungy and 'boyish'.  I used that as my centre piece in this cluster, I tucked one of the kits epoxy flairs under the flower to help make it look less lonely. I then used some of the wooden stars and sequins that were also a part of the kit to help fill in the cluster.  I felt as if I needed a base for my cluster seeing as it was quite large and it was on a dark background so I cut a part of the straw that we all received and glued it under everything.





I then proceeded to add another cluster in the top left hand corner of the page. I used the left over piece of straw to help tie everything in and I then added some of the sample washi tape which I also loved from the kit.  The washi acts like a grounding place for the 'sweet heart' sticker that I used as well as the other tiny word stickers in that corner. To finish off that cluster I added some of the sequins that I had used at the bottom.








At this stage, I was thinking that my bottom cluster was looking a little plain so I just added some more tiny word stickers and then added my title, 'love you'.

I hope that you enjoyed today's post and I hope that your loving your May kits!

Morgyn ~ May Kit ~ Fathers Day Card


Hi scrappers,

Morgyn here with a quick Fathers day card using the May Scrapping Fun kit.

This was my 3rd project created using the May kit - and I still have lots of bits left over (special project coming up in the next couple of months - keep an eye out)

I know Fathers day isn't until September (here in Australia) but it's always nice to have cards on hand rather than rushing at the last minute.


First I used 2 of the patterned papers to create my background - none of my pieces were big enough to cover the whole card.  I added the twine in between the pieces where there was a little gap.


Next I ran the black piece of paper through my big shot with an alpha die to spell out Happy fathers day. I stuck these down then got started on my embellishments.  A strip of washi tape with a metal gear in the top corner - I filled the middle of the gear with some of the mini seed beads.


Lastly I added a couple of washi strips (from my stash) and layered a few sequins together in the bottom corner.  This was such a simple card to create and I really LOVE the way it turned out.  Hopefully one of the fathers (probably my husband) will enjoy this come September.

As always I have a process video up for this card, I would love you to check it out.
You can find it HERE.

Have a great scrappy day

Morgyn

Morgyn ~ May Kit ~ My reads


Morgyn here sharing another mini spread in my Travellers notebook.

I am trying to document some of my favourite things throughout the year in this little notebook, I have found the Scrapping Fun Kits as perfect to accent my pages.

This month I am documenting 'My Reads' - these are my favourite series of books. I have read the first 3 at least 2-3 times and always seem to read something new. The Series is The Bronze Horseman by Paulina Simons.

The blues in this kit match almost perfectly with the colours in the book covers.



First I created a background with some stamps (background stamps from Stampin' Up!) and ink. Then layed down a couple of washi tape pieces and used some kit papers to back behind my photo.


After adding my photo I worked on my embellishment clusters.  With a small space to work with in a Travellers notebook, my clusters are rather minimal - sequins in top and bottom corners, then a cluster of paper flower, metal gear and flair to the top right of the photo.  


Finally I added a title using an alpha stamp set.  I try to keep these layouts quick and simple to create.

If you would like to watch my process video of this spread you can check it out here.


Thanks for stopping by

Lisa - May Kit - 8teen

Today I have a Layout for you using the May Embellishment Kit from Scrapping Fun Kits.

I wanted a rough teenage look and so I distressed the edges of 11x11 white card with Orange and Black ink and mounted it onto 12x12 Black Striped patterned paper that I had in my stash.



I then splattered some orange ink in random places.

I mounted the photo onto orange cardstock and then layered the kit patterned paper underneath. Distressing the edges in black so it would pop from the white background.

The Gorgeous Cogs from the Kit made a great embellishment cluster along the left side of the photo.


I used the Kit Epoxy Flairs and Round Paper Clip across the top coupled with some circle patterned paper punches from my stash

I also added a layer of triangle to the top to go with the circles and geometric patterns on the Kit patterned paper.








To the right I used some Chipboard Alpha Tiles in my son's initials, this is also the nickname he started using in his teens.

Along the bottom of the photo I have added some more geometric shapes using the Kit Patterned paper

The Title is using a mixture of fonts with chipboard and stickers which I have coloured a dark brown to blend.



To add a bit of interest I have used both numbers and letters to combine the theme of Teen and being 18.

Below is the complete layout. I really love the Circles and Geometric shapes in this layout giving it an edgy teen look.
