Shay - October Kit - Bride of Frankenstein

Hello everyone!

This month see's a quick approaching christmas and Halloween...This layout I have done is me about 15 years ago dressed for a Halloween Street Party held in Wynum Queensland. 

Made use of a old bridesmaid dress to become the Bride of Frankenstein...so when the kit arrived for this month, I knew which photo I had to scrap, the colours were perfect!

I started off using background paper from my stash, and put downt he punchinella on an angle behind the picture. I then matted the photo with two of the papers from the October kit, the colours worked well as the photo is about 15 years old. 

I added the paper flower and the flair to one corner with the two orange flowers highlighted by the green flowers in the middle. Witches hat on paperclip was tucked in behind. I continued to put embellishments on the opposite corner the circle from the kit, purple rose and a tiny little silver pumkin.

The title was made up of more papers from my halloween stash, and thickers (the name escapes me but will try and find them) I finished the page off with purple sequins to give a bit of bling to the page.

Lauren - Spring Moodboard - Traveler's Notebook Layout

Lauren ~
Traveler's Notebook Layout -- October Moodboard

When I challenge myself with a moodboard challenge I look at it and think about what stands out to me - something that I can relate to.

So as you read this have a look at Scrapping Fun Kits Spring Moodboard
and think about what resonates with you. Use this to start the creativity flowing and end up with a great layout (whatever format it is).

So what do I see, you might ask.......

I seen yellow and purple flowers that light and airy like spring blossoms, and a beautiful bird. 

So with that in mind I set out searching my stash, I wanted a bird stamp (and I thought I would have one seeing as I have plenty). I couldn't find a bird stamp but did find a few flower stamp sets.

I settled on one stamp (from one of the reject shop's collection) and cut off the leave so that it stamped just the flower and stem part. This reminded me of the lower right hand side photo - the long stems and little delicate flowers at the ends.

I then used the colours to guide my ink choices and went to town stamping the flowers - overlapping them and trying to spread out the colours to cover the bottom half of the traveler's notebook insert page. I didn't stamp the flowers in straight line instead making it more random and realistic (in case didn't know flowers don't often grow in straight lines and rows hehe).

Seeing as the other thing I was drawn to when looking at the moodboard was the bird, I set out to add it to this layout.  I didn't want to ruin the flowers or the paper, as I was going to experiment with freehand drawing and watercolour pencils. So I grabbed some scrap paper and started drawing with a pencil. Simplistic bird was all I could muster, and once I was happy I traced over it with black sharpie pen.

I used similar colours to colour in the bird, using water colour pencils and water brush.  I did make a bird I wasn't happy with the colours and then made a second one.

I used a glue stick to stick down the bird and then twiddle and tapped my fingers trying to decide what else to add to the layout as it was a bit bare.

I started doodling a border with the pencils (not using water this time), carrying over the colour scheme to tie in the whole layout.

I then, somehow plucked the idea out of thin air, to draw a box next to the bird. Pinterest was searched for a "bird quote" to add to this box.

finished the layout off with stamped hearts and the word October, I did mis-stamp some hearts near the October and covered the mistake with tiny word stickers (i.e. our best friend hehe).

Here is the completed Traveler's Notebook.

Let me know what you think of my TN layout, and also what you think about when look at our moodboard. 
Share your layout on the scrapping fun kits Facebook page, so we can all be inspired.

Lisa - October Kit - Be A Spider

Hello again, and welcome to my 2nd October Kit Layout. The colours in this Kit are really Awesome and because it's gets so close to Halloween I thought I would get a little "creepy" with Spiders. These photo's are of my Son with his favourite Spider T-shirt and pretending to be a Spider 😂.

I have used the thick 12x12 Raw Cardboard from the back of a Paperstack as the background. Then using the Punchinella from the Kit as a template I have dabbed some black ink to create the little dot effect. Layering the Striped Paper Bag and Gorgeous patterned Green Googly Eye Paper makes for a great background for the Matted photos to be mounted on. I filled the top of the bag with an Embellishment Cluster of items from the Kit and a couple of Arrows I made myself from Textured Zig Zag Cardstock which compliments the Fantastic colourful Zig Zag Ribbon from the Kit which I have run down the page to get it's full effect.

Coming down the page to the title accented with a little cork arrow. I have used Typeset Alphas from Kmart which I have distressed with black ink to help make stand out and Thickers for "SPIDER". Now to the actual Spider on the page 😂. I have had this in my house for ages and found it after completing the layout. I just had to have it on there so I painted the Red Back Stripe on it and glued it down by the body with PVA Glue.

I hope you enjoyed this layout as much as I did and I will see you all next month.

Morgyn ~ Scrapping Fun October Kit ~ Layout Share Where's Wally

Hi Scrappers,

Morgyn here using this months Halloween inspired kit for this fun layout of Sam dressing up for Book week, we don't really celebrate Halloween here but we do LOVE dressing up.

The green 'eye' paper was perfect do go with his Where's Wally outfit - all the eyes looking for Wally.
I created a little embellishment cluster in the bottom left of the photo using a label, some washi tape, the flair badge (they all received treats on the dress up day) and a little green flower - they all coordinated together perfectly.

The Stripy paper bag was a great addition to match the stripes of the T'shirt and made another little cluster in the top right corner, using a label and another tiny green flower (how cute are those?)

I finished off my page with some white paint splatters (I got a little carried away up the top oops)
This was a super quick layout to put together, it really helps when all the kit pieces coordinate together so well.

I also have a short process video up of how I made this layout if you would like to check it out you can find it here.

Thanks for stopping by,

Morgyn  xx

Raelene - TN Kit - Lily

I created this layout for the Scrapping Fun Kits Bi-monthly Moodboard Challenge using my one of the Concept Kits I created when I first had the idea for a TN Kit and bits from my September Embellishment Kit.

It came together quickly and was a lot of fun to create.
The lemon and peach paper from the September Kit worked really well with the other bits from my concept kit.
I trimmed the paper so I had a small strip on the right hand page to carry the layout onto that page.

The tag behind the photo is not stuck down so I can add more to it and use it as a pull out if I need to.
It helped the pink/peach colour from the background paper pop a bit more.

This gorgeous thin script washi spread over the 2 pages helped pull the 2 pages together.
I also added this floral vellum sticker to the bottom spread over the 2 pages that matches the circle floral sticker at the top on the right with the washi to help pull it all together.

I am loving how quick and simple scrapping in a TN is, it is a great fun way to create and I look forward to having a more portable option to take with me on the tilt train than what I did last year.

I have created a Pinterest board full of TN Scrapping Layouts, so if you would like more inspiration why not check it out, this type of scrapping I am finding is a great option for the time poor scrapper like myself.

Raelene - October Kit - Planner Spread

Hi Scrapping Fun Fans,
Some of you may remember Morgyn and I challenged each other earlier in the year to use something from each month's kit in our planner each month.  So today I have a planner spread for you.

I am not big on decorating my planner pages as I can often have last minute appointments especially at this time of year, so like to leave space.  When decorating my pages with the October kit I wanted to have a fun spread in the last week of October but still leave ample space for last minute appointments.

I created a cluster with the pumpkin stack from the cut apart, 2 of the flair that I took the epoxy off and a label from the cut apart which I penned in the day on since my cluster hid the day.
Simple but cute bit of decorating for October 31st.

By using minimal supplies for my planner spread I have plenty of supplies left to scrapbook our Halloween memories this year.

Lisa - October Kit - Old Mother Hubbard

Hello everyone and welcome to the fantastic Scrapping Fun October Kit. The Kit has a Halloween feel to it but can easily be used for other non-Halloween themes. This photo is of my daughter dressed up for Book Week (an Australian School tradition where school children dress up as Book Characters). My daughter is Old Mother Hubbard from the Nursery Rhyme.

I have distressed pretty much everything by roughing up around the edges by scraping them with a pair of scissors. I have even distressed the photo and painted over it with Vintage Mod Podge to remove the shine and tone down the colours. I have coordinated the colours of the layout with the photo stacking pattern paper and some texture behind the photo. The Punchenella (Black Mesh)from the Kit adds great interest and the little paper flowers from the kit bring a little contrasting colour.

The title is the first line of the Nursery Rhyme. I was going to include the whole Rhyme but I thought it would make the layout too busy. The Lettering is from Kmart which I have coloured Purple with Ink and the words are alpha Stickers. Oh yes and the Washi tape on the corner of the photo is also from the Kit.

This is my favourite part of the Layout !! This Embellishment cluster is all from the Kit except for the Bone (which is from my stash). The Handmade flower is just gorgeous is has a soft crinkly look and feel. The Flair I have adjusted the wording to match the Rhyme (...because the doggy got no bone in the end 😞) and the web to symbolise the cobwebs in Old Mother Hubbard's cupboards. The flowers, twine and green die cut all add interest and texture to the cluster.

I hope you enjoy this layout and get some inspiration for what you can do with these months Scrapping Fun Kit.

Raelene - September Kit - Bellingham Maze

Hi Scrapping Fun Fans.
Raelene with you today sharing my layout using the September Kit I created with a photo from many years ago when we took the kids to Bellingham Maze on the Sunshine Coast.  I will add a second layout for the journaling as there is a fair bit to tell about this day.

Though this trip was in Autumn I still loved using Spring supplies for  it as it helped with the fun feeling of the day.

I did have a creative block while working on this layout so I reminded myself of what I said in a post on Mercy Tiara's group Saturday and just stuck things down, I committed and hoped it would work.
I started by sticking down the bird and butterfly washi in the top corner but I needed to stick more down.  I needed to stop thinking about how it would all come together, I needed to just get the paper layers down and then play with embellishments and let the supplies work for me.
I finished off with a wobbly pen border.

I love how this layout turned out, them embellishments really helped make it a fun layout.

Due to technical difficulties my Process Video has not been able to be uploaded.  Hopefully tech support aka hubby can fix the issues later today so I can share it with you.

A Beautiful Day card by Sarah Rosse

Hello crafty friends, Sarah here with another simple project using the gorgeous September kit from Scrapping Fun Kits! The background of this card was created using Distress Inks - simply smudge some ink on to your craft mat, spritz with some water and dip your cardstock in to it. Dry in between layers to prevent colours from mixing in to a muddy colour. The stems were stamped in Black Staz on ink using a nature themed stamp from my stash. The flowers, of course are the selection included in the September kit. The saying on the card was from the kit, backed on to some black tissue paper.
You would have to agree that the crocheted pansy is just adorable....perhaps my favorite! I hope you enjoy the kit as much as I have....even after two projects, I still have more supplies to play with! A fantastic, value packed embellishment kit for sure. Until next time....happy creating!

Coralee's Bloom'n Mount Coot-Tha Layout

Good Morning Scrapbooking Friends!
Today I bring you this fun and pretty easy layout featuring the time my partner and I went to Mount Coot-tha. This isn't the original layout I had made for this month but unfortunately some cheeky little child hands got to my previous one before I could photograph it!

I made most of this layout using items from this months kit.

So I started out with my 12x12 paper from the Sugar & Spice Studio Wildflower Paper Pad. This partiuclar paper worked perfectly with tying my photo's and the items from the kit together.

Next up, I fussy cut the BLOOM letters and the cute little clouds (and sun) up the top.

I used the yellow paper from the kit behind the photo and paper doily and sat everything in place. After a good amount of time staring at the page I decided it was too bland - so in came the butterfly and thread! This part was rather simple. First I stuck the top bit around the back of the page with some tape. Then I looped it a couple of times, threaded on the butterfly, looped it around the page some more then stuck the other end on the back just the same. Voila! Cute layout complete!

Bloom by Sarah Rosse

Hello crafty friends, Sarah here with a lovely Spring bloom layout for you! I know I was glad to see the end of Winter, but my daffodils were the clear sign that Spring was coming, even throughout the harsh conditions of Winter. The dashes of yellow in the garden are always a welcome sight that time of year.

This layout was created on green Bazzil cardstock using the gorgeous September Scrapping Fun Kits, a nice compliment to the colours of Spring. The title was hand cut from the cut apart sheet in the kit, as was the cloud embellishment on the top right corner of the layout.
The photo was matted on the two coloured pieces in the kit and the buterfly washi tape is absolutely adorable! The washi tape with the birds on it, the wooden veneer and butterfly charm are just beautiful.
The sequins provided in the kit are just a perfect way to finish off this layout. I added a time date stamp also so I can slip this layout in to my family album.

Just a reminder that we only have 4 spots left from October onwards for Scrapping Fun Kits subscriptions, so head to the subscribe tab on the blog here and fill in the form so you don't miss out. I hope you enjoyed this layout and I cannot wait to see what you create with your September kit!

Morgyn ~ September/Spring Kit ~ TN layout

Hi Scrappers, 

A quick layout share today using this months Scrapping Fun Kits spring themed kit.

This layout was done in my Travellers notebook as part of my 'all about me' project.  I actually struggled with this layout a little 1. because I was trying not to use mixed media on a layout (just a personal challenge for me lol) and 2. because I wanted to use EVERYTHING in the kit as it was all so pretty.

I started with the Spring To Do list and wrote out a few things I wanted to achieve in the next 3 months, my first goal was to loose weight. So I decided to use this photo of Roman and I going out for our daily walk - the Spring weather is perfect at the moment.

Next I made a little banner at the top with some of the bird washi tape (perfect as there are always so many birds to see and hear on our walks). I cut a strip off the cloud card to add under the washi and finished it off with a yellow flower - It reminded me of the sun.

Next I created 2 little clusters under my photo using more washi, a flair and the 'Beautiful Day' cut apart.  The little word sticker was from my stash.  I felt the page was pretty well finished at this point.

Lastly I added the bird clip to the top and my journaling to the green label and that's the layout done.  Thanks for stopping by to check it out.

Morgyn xx
