Now you're 6 ~ Travellers Notebook share


 Good morning Scrappers,

Morgyn Here sharing my latest Travellers Notebook spread using the current Scrapping Fun Kits TN kit (you can grab one here).  I am scrapping a photo of my son on his 6th birthday, this was his 3rd cake to celebrate - family, friends, more family = LOTS of cake hehe.



The dot paper I used on this page was my favourite piece from the collection and thought it suited a birthday cake layout. I used a tag from the kit along with the frame label sticker (how cute are those?) to create a base for the large #06 sticker which was from the basic's kit.  I trimmed down 3x4 card to create a little journal spot at the top.


For this page I used this beautiful gold floral paper as my background as it suited so wonderfully with the gold dot piece.  I used the Rhonna Designs app to make a polaroid style frame around my photo.  I used the green chevron washi tape from the kit as a little accent on this page (+ some more on the other side to match).  Using the roller stamp from the basic's kit I added the date and called this one done.  I think this little spread took me about 20 minutes and was lots of fun to make.


Here is a look at the finished 2 page spread.  I love how it turned out, the TN kit from Scrapping Fun Kits match together so well it's easy to put a layout together in no time.

I would love it if you would check out my process video for this layout, you can find it here.

December Daily - Making the Numbers


 Hi everyone,

I'm back with a little project for my December Daily.  This time I am sharing how I created my little number clusters.

I knew I didn't want to just stick the number on the page, that they needed a little bit of oomph so I decided to make some little clusters using pieces from the kit (which you can get here) and some bits and pieces from my stash.



Here I am using a piece of pattern paper from the kit, which I punched out using small tag, square and ticket punches.  I used these to created the base for my clusters.  Then I trimmed down some die-cuts from an old Kaisercraft 6x6 paper pad and add them to the base pieces.  Next I adhered my numbers to the top.


For this little one I used another die-cut from a Kaisercraft paper pad, it's meant to be an arrow but I thought it looked a little like a Santa Cottage.  I added some of the kit washi tape to the bottom and then the red number 2 on top.

I continued with similar combinations until I got to number 25, using pieces from my stash, some from the kit and couple of new bits and bobs.  I really loved how they turned out and can't wait to get them in my December Daily journal.  Here is a snapshot of my final 25 pieces.




I do have a process video up on my channel I would love for you to check it out, you can find it here.  Also don't forget to grab yourself a kit to create your own December project.

Thank you
Morgyn  xx

Best Buds ~ Travellers Notebook



Hi Scrappers,
I'm sharing a little layout I created using the Spring kit from Scrapping Fun Kits

I took this photo of the boys on a recent trip to Toowoomba.  They both looked so cute on the big swing together and I just had to scrap it.  The spring kit was perfect kit to accompany this little picture.

I really wanted to use the floral stripped paper and found the pink polka dot paper matched wonderfully.  I edited my photo using the Rhonna Collages app to add a polaroid frame around it. 
I used some washi tape and word sticker across the top of the frame.

On the opposite page I added the date to the library tag and used some tiny word stickers to add the word Toowoomba.  I did my journalling on the flower paper then added a couple of stickers from my stash and washi from the kit to finish off the page.


Here is the completed page

Documenting December - Making my album

Hi Scrappers, 

Hope you are all getting ready for the Christmas season, I know I am!!  December 1st just can't come quick enough, to put up the tree and decorations :)

Here is a little walk through of how I put together my Travellers Notebook style album.  If you would like to watch my more in depth process video on how I made this you can check it out here.



First off I cut down some 12x12 pieces of cardstock (all from different collections) to 6x12.  I used a bone folder to put a crease down the middle of each and arranged them together to form the book.


Next I put some clips on the edges of the book to keep it in place while I stitched it together.  First I marked in 1 inch spaces along the middle then pre punched the holes with a needle.  Then using some black cotton (doubled over) I stitched up the middle front and back to make it nice and strong.


Once it was all held together nicely I cut a 1/2 inch strip off the open side so my notebook will be 6x5.5 inches in size.  I made it as big as possible knowing I could cut it down further if i found it  was too large.


Adding the finishing touches;  I cut down this piece of patterned paper from an old Stampin' Up! collection and adhered it to the front cover.


I used some grey paint to paint my chipboard 'December 2017'.  Once that was dry I used some silver stickles to a bit of glitter. Sadly I was a little heavy handed and broke my wood piece - it glued back together just fine :)


Lastly I used a strip of washi tape to finish off the edge and glued my wood piece down and added one of the holly leaves to the top corner.  I might add a few more pieces as I complete my pages, but for now I am calling in done.

Documenting December ~ Kit Organisation

Hi everyone,
Morgyn here sharing how I have organised my Documenting December goodies.

This year I am making my own travellers Notebook style 'album' to document all my Christmas photos.  I am using this years kit from Scrapping Fun Kits along with some other goodies I have had in my stash.



First up I sorted the kit into different components; woodveneer, embellishments, washi tape, stamps etc.  Then allocated 1 compartment per embellishment type.  I am using and Antonius container from Ikea.  In this little section I have out all my chipboard, wood veneer, trim/twine and fabric embellishments.


Next I trimmed down the cut-a-part sheet and put that in it's on little section with a few other die cuts. The next little compartment is holding my Christmas stamp sets, washi tapes (I have too many hehe) and a huge roll of red twine.


Lately I put all my large pieces (papers, doilies, paper bags etc) in the biggest section. I added in a couple of 6x6 paper pads and my countdown numbers.  This is pretty much how I will keep my goodies set up on my desk for the month of December. As the container is open it makes it super easy to rummage through and find the perfect piece to finish off a page + having it all in 1 spot makes it easy to take with me if I want to scrap somewhere else.


If you would like to see a real time video of me putting it all together you can check it out here.

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.

You colour my world ~ D-lish Scraps September Challenge


Hi Scrappers,

Sharing my latest layout using this months D-lish Scraps ~ Just add paper kit.   When I first opened the kit I was worried I wouldn't be able to make it work with all the pretty colours, as I usually only scrap with 1 or 2 colours at a time. So I took out the little piece of paper that has the monthly sketch and moodboard and was instantly inspired to create a rainbow layout - something I haven't really attempted in the past.  It didn't go exactly how I envisioned but somehow came out better.

I started off by adding gesso to my background, then adding some stripes of watercolour paint across the middle of the page.  I mounted my photo on to some black cardstock and placed it in the middle of the page, so I knew where the paint needed to start/finish.


Next I grabbed my gelatos and used them to colour the chipboard title that came in the kit.  I worked with the same colours as my watercolour paint so the colours flowed across the page.

Lastly I added all my embellishments to the page - there was A LOT.  I think I used 95% of this months kit as there was only a couple of pieces left at the end + a few bits and bobs from my stash.


I had so much fun putting this layout together, it was definitely not my usual type of page but I really like it. Plus my boys really do colour my world :)

Morgyn xx
