Raelene - June Kit - Happy Birthday Card

Hi Scrapping Fun Fans.
Raelene with you today sharing the card I made for my Best Friends Birthday which is Today hence the late share as I am dropping off her card and present Today and won't be hitting publish until she recieves it.

This kit was inspired by her love of pink so I had to use it for her Birthday Card, in addition to her card my boys made my Mother's Day card with the kit so it was well used.

I chose to use the lovely floral paper, the pink trim, my last flower from the cut apart and the rolled rose which was part of the little bonus the Earlybirds recieve on my card.

I edged the paper with some Worn Lipstick Distress Ink.

I have these lovely silver number stickers I got from my DD last year from my local cheap shop, they have 4 little flowers on the sheet so I added 1 to my cluster to pull the silver in.

I love doing more complex cards but simple cards like this I find to be rather special.

June Kit - A touch of Vintage

Hello Everyone, I am Shay and I  am delighted to be pat of the Scrapping Fun Kits design team. Welcome to my first layout, and oh boy am I a bundle of nerves!

This June kits was totally something I would not usually use but, when I got a sneak peak of what was in it, I was super excited as it reminded me of my parent's wedding, visions of the beautiful shades of pink and floral patterns, swirled in my head of a layout that called for the black and white picture to be scrapped. My mum had her bridesmaids and flower girls wearing pink. I think this kit was made for it!

I Started by finding some background paper that had some floral design on it and the page used was a perfect match for the June kit. Up the right hand corner I placed the paper doily from the kit and then added the metal embellishment that added a touch of art deco/vintage feel to the layout. I then added the beautiful handmade and coloured flower, used two floral buttons ( you can just see one peeking out) an the bonus flower that come in the kit.

The bottom left corner was decorated with the ribbon, then I used Tim Holtz sugar spun distress ink ink to colour the large heart, and then clear embossed them to give them that little bit of shimmer. The two little heart were coloured using Hero arts ombre pink ink pad and the clear embossing powder again.  I used the bonus ribbon to frame the corners of the picture in the top right hand corner and bottom left hand corner of the pictures tying it in more to the corner embellishments.

I glued everything down and then I decided it needed a bit more. I ended up punching out boarders from a Martha Stewart punch I have, A bit of negotiating to get the side of the pictures back up I managed to get my boarder on and re-glued to the page.  I ended up inking the edges of the paper doily with the spun sugar.  "Boho" Thickers were used to complete the title in black glitter.

Thank you all so much for reading my first every blog post!

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.

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.
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.
