Amy- June 2019 Kit - Sleepy Cuddles

Hey Scrapping Fun Peeps,

Amy here with an end of month project and for this one I decided I needed to get a little mixed media, as I stepped back in time and documented this photo of my son in the days I came home from hospital with him.

I started this layout with the plan to have a plain white background and hearts, but it was not cutting it for me. So after punching out several hearts from this months patterned papers, I painted the cardstock using my Jane Davenport watercolours.
I then matted my photo on the tissue paper from the kit to give it a nice soft border and popped it on some craft foam for some dimension off the background.
I knew I was using the cut out words 'Sleepy Cuddles' as my title but wanted to add a little texture behind them so popped the twine from the kit in behind them. I also added the cuddles to the photo just to cover some of the negative space on the photo.

Now the main parts of the layout were on I played with the embellishments. I started by adding to the heart clusters I begun making. I loved the little blue feet so wanted to add those so they completed the cluster at the top and for the bottom I just added 1 of the little flowers. I also added the blanket cut out with the cot cut apart over the top under the photo as a large die cut piece.

I felt there was something missing down the left side so I added another little cluster using the giraffe cut apart and word strips and then wrote my journalling.
I also added a longer word strip at the bottom to finish off the layout.

I love, love this layout and love that I have managed to save this photo from deteriorating further and losing it (it was being lost in a broken frame in my sons room).

Looking forward to our July kits!

Karen - Project Life with the June Scrapping Fun Kit

Project Life with June Scrapping Fun Kit

Hi, it's Karen here with my second blog using the June Scrapping Fun Kit.

If you've not seen my first blog, you can check it out here - I made some cute baby cards.

For this blog though, I wanted to use the rest of the kit and make a layout in my Project Life Album.
If you've not familiar with Project Life, check out, where you can find more info. Basically its a easy way to journal your memories using 12x12 plastic pockets, where you can insert photos and journalling cards etc.  Most people do a spread each week, but as it can soon mount up into a lot of storage space, so I do one spread each month, as well as random ones, such as birthdays, Christmas etc.

There are many different designs on the 12x12 page protectors, on this spread I've used one that includes four 6x4 pockets, and three 4x4 pockets.

To start with I used the cute little 'sleepy cuddles' sentiment which was included in the kit. I heat embossed these so make them blue, and backed them onto the plaid paper sheet which was also included in the kit.

I also added some journalling onto a sheet of tracing paper, which I added to the bottom right hand side of my spread. I attached this with staplers, and used the tissue paper from the kit as a background for this.

To finish off, I added some silver bling from my stash throughout the spread.

In the top left hand side I used the tissue sheet too as my background - I like the mix of texture this brings. I used some alphas from my stash to add my son's name - as well as stamping 'it's a boy' onto some of the left over bits of paper.

There were quite a few off-cuts of paper left, after I'd cut them down to 6x4, so I used these at the bottom of the tissue paper in a layering effect, finished off with one of the embellishments from the kit too.

It's hard to see on the photo - but I also stamped text on a left over piece of plaid paper which I added to the elephant paper, and one of the embellishment pieces. I also cut out the tape measure to add this to the piece too.

The darkness of the piece, adds a good focal point to the centre of my spread.

Under each of my photos, I added the sentiment from one of the sheets. The flowers were also added from the kit on onto each photo to co-ordinate them both.

Amy- July 2019 Baby kit - Awesome

Hey Scrapping Fun Peeps,

Amy here with a bright 12x12 layout using the super cute June kit; which I chose the boy as I am documenting for my nephew's album.
Today I have used a yellow background to tone in with some of the colours in the kit as well make some of the papers I use and the embellishments really pop out. I have also used one of Paige Evans cutfiles from the Silhouette Store.

I was definitely jumping in and using that very cute Giraffe so that was going on the layout no matter what! I backed the cutfile using a Kaisercraft paper collection, again trying to tie in colours from our kit this month.

The photo I matted using the brown patterned paper to give the photo a pop off the yellow background and added some craft foam behind it to give some dimension to the page.

I thought to add some texture I would try out a paper ruffle using the tissue paper - something I am not learning to do (my process video you will see this ;) ) .

Embellishing was next and on went the giraffe as planned, and then I could not resist the little teddy embellishment from the kit either. I also added the blue twine from the kit as some added texture.

I have a process video for this coming up on my channel following this post going live so be sure to check that out to see how I created this layout

Until next time happy scrapping

Karen - June Kit - Baby Cards

June Kit - Baby Cards

Who can resist making a baby card or two? It's one of the first things I think of when I hear someone is pregnant - the chance to make some baby crafts.

I made three cards from the June kit, the only thing I added was some blue card stock, and one of my baby stamp images.

I used one of my scallop dies to cut out one of the paper sheets to add to my blue card stock.

The left over yellow ribbon fit neatly behind this as I'd mounted it on some foam to give it some dimension.

The cute die cuts were an easy addition to the front, as well as the flower, which I used in the top right hand corner.

I finished off with the blue twine which twisted around the bottom a few time.

I used the tissue paper on top of the patterned sheet to add some texture, and used the yellow ribbon to frame it. I also used the orange twine to add an accent to the ribbon, so it wasn't too orange.  I cut out the giraffe from another paper sheet to use as a die cut  and finished off with a stamped sentiment - Welcome Little One. I originally tried to do this in Gold, but it didn't show up very well. The black stands out a little too much for my liking but overall I'm pleased with this one - very cute and gender neutral.

This has got to be my favourite - so cute!

It was so easy to assemble, using the die cut, ribbon and gorgeous little feet from the kit. The flower ribbon made a nice textured finishing touch at the top left, but its the cute little elephants that I think really make this card.

I hope you like these as much as I do, let me know which is your favourite!

If you'd like to see what I do with the rest of the kit, consider subscribing to my YouTube, I will be uploading my YouTube layout this coming weekend.

Julie - June 2019 Kit - Cindy 1974 Layout

Good morning

Today I am sharing with you a layout I have created for Scrapping Fun Kits using their June kit.

You can see a detailed video of the creation of this layout here.

You can subscribe to Scrapping Fun Kits here.

This is the layout I have made. It showcases the first year of my daughters life. We did not take as many photos back then as we do now.

I decided to go for a grid style layout.

There is a very cute tissue paper in the kit, I attached it to some white cardstock and used it as patterned cardstock. I cut it to 11" x 11" and matted it on some pink cardstock from my stash to create the background for my layout.

My photos are 2.25" x 2.5" so I cut 9 pieces of white cardstock 2.5" x 2.75" to use as my grid pieces.
I attached my photos to 4 of these using foam squares.

Two pieces of twine from the kit were wrapped around one of the panels and tied with a knot. A pair of little jewel feet, from the kit, were added to the bottom right section. A section of a Kaisercraft gem flower was added to the bottom left of the panel and the year the photos were taken was added to the top of the panel.

Both the title and the year were cut using Kaisercraft DD700 Alphabet Upper Case and Die-namics Little Numbers dies in both pink and black.

They were then stuck on top of each other so that the pink was on top and slightly off set so it looked like they had a shadow. This helped them stand out from the background.

The embellishments for the bottom centre panel were 2 stickers that came in the kit. I mounted one flat on the panel and one was mounted with foam squares.

The two panels on the left of the layout were treated as one because I wanted to include the very cute felt giraffe that was in the kit. I added some pink lace to the top panel and then attached the giraffe so that it overlapped the two panels on the left and just a tiny bit of the centre photo.

I then attached a monkey, that I had fussy cut from the cut-apart-sheet, to the top of the centre panel so he looked like he was hanging there.

I used a Stitched Nested Hearts die to cut 4 hearts from an assortment of the patterned papers in the kit. I inked the edges of them all and then attached them, one top of the other, with a strip if d/sided tape, down the middle of each heart so I could fold the edges of each heart layer up. Three pink pearls were then added for a bit of bling.

For a little more texture on the page I added some pink and yellow thread behind the bottom right photo and the top left photo.

To finish the layout off I drew a border around both of the background layers using my ruler and a black Uniball Micro pen.

Julie - June 2019 Kit - Baby cards

Hi there everyone

Well it is June and very cold. I am afraid that the cold weather is not my best friend. I am, unfortunately, a fair weather girl and I am not that keen on all the layers of clothing one has to wear in the colder months.

Today I am sharing a set of new born cards I have recently made using the June Scrapping Fun Kits kit. You can subscribe to the kits here.

You can see the process video on my YouTube channel here.

These are the cards.

The first card is for a new baby girl and measures 4.5" square.

I have layered 3 of the patterned papers so they decrease in size by 0.25" for each layer. i.e. 4.25", 4", and 3.75"

The scalloped hearts are cut using the 4 smallest dies in my Do Crafts Scalloped Hearts die set from the same pink cardstock the card base is cut from.

I inked around the edge of all of these pieces with Versa Color Orchid ink. I attached each heart on top of the other with just a strip if d/sided tape in the middle of each heart so that the sides of each heart can be lifted to create some dimension. I also covered the smallest heart with sparkle using my Wink of Stella pen

I wrapped some yellow lace from the kit around my embellishment panel and tied it in a bow before I secured it to the front of the card.

The giraffe was fussy cut from the cut-a-part sheet and attached to the card front with glue so it slightly overlapped the bottom layer of the hearts

A computer generated sentiment was printed on the same pink cardstock and attached using foam tape.

For a little bit more detail on the inside of the card I covered the background of the right hand section with some of the patterned paper and then added the larger heart. I matted another sentiment onto some of the patterned paper from the kit and attached that to the top area of the heart so there is room to write a personal message on the heart. The heart was also covered with sparkle from the Wink Of Stella pen

For the baby boy I card I created a tri-fold 5.25" square card using some light blue cardstock from my stash.

I cut a piece of patterned paper to 5" square to put on the inside of the card and 2 pieces of 2 5/8" x 5" pieces for the front and inside left of the card.

I created the sentiment on the computer and printed it on the same blue cardstock that the cards base is made from. I cut a fishtail from each end of the sentiment for a little added detail.

The "Cuddles" die cut was in the kit so I cut the "s" off the end and used 2 blue ink pads to colour it so that it complimented the other colours on the card.

The sentiment and the die cut were then added to the blanket that I had cut from the cut-apart-sheet.

Using 2 pieces of bakers twine I wrapped the front patterned paper a couple of times and then tied a knot. This was attached at the back of the patterned paper with d/sided tape before I attached the patterned paper to the card base.

The embellishment panel was attached to the front of the card so it over hung about half way.

To decorate the inside of the card I cut several pieces from the cut-apart-sheet and attached them to the bottom of the card once I had attached the patterned paper to both areas of the inside of the card.

Raelene - June 2019 Kit - Sleepy Mini Album

I wanted to make a quick mini album with the papers in the June 2019 Kit so I had some fun watching a few quick mini album videos on YouTube and decided I would go with a Wallet Mini Album that My Sister's Scrapper shared in 2016, as I feel like it could be used as a really cool card as well as a gift.

I selected some cream cardstock as my base to pull in the cream components in the kit and followed her instructions, gluing my fold out pieces with Helmar Acid Free Glue.

I adhered magents with Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive before adding my papers with Helmar Acid Free Glue.

To decorate my top flap at the front I added the cream trim from the kit with Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive, folding the ends around to the back.  I then added the Sleepy die cut as my title and created a little cluster with 3 of the flowers in the kit and the last button that I had left over from doing the bay album for my friend that I shared the other day.

When covering the back of the top flap I added to layers of cardstock between the trim so when my paper went down it would sit fairly flat.

I adhered all layers down with Helmar Acid Free Glue.

I added some white cardstock to represent where photos could go and added the elephant papers to the other sections.

I love how it turned out.
