Kitaholic Kits August Challenge ~ So Happy!

Hi Scrappers,

Sharing my latest project using this months Kitaholic Kits, I get the Main scrapbook kit and the embellishment kit.  You can check them out here.

This months sketch,  I chose to flip the sketch on it's side for my layout.

I mounted my photos on white cardstock, then added a couple of pattern papers behind my photos as a base for my main focal point.


I loved the bird piece from the ephemera pack and wanted to add a bit more blue/green to the page, this piece was perfect.  Along with 2 little hearts and a gold glitter banner clip formed my 1st embellishment cluster.


Next I worked on my embellishment cluster to the right, I used a tag and label from the ephemera pack, with a wooden arrow and a couple of stickers.  I also added my journaling to the label.


My third and final embellishment cluster at the top of the photo included some small wood veneer and acrylic pieces from Corbet creations.


Here is a snapshot of the whole layout, I love how simple this layout was to put together - even better with a well coordinated kit!!


Please hop over to my Youtube channel and check out my process video for this layout.

D-Lish scraps August Challenge ~ Look what I made

Hi everyone,

I’m back with a 12x12 layout using this month’s D-lish Scraps - Just add paper kit ‘Off the wall’.  I am also including my layout in their challenge for the month.

Here is a look at the sketch and mood board I am using for the layout.  The colours and paint splatters suited this photo of Sam so perfectly I had to scrap them for this challenge.




First off I layered my photos with black cardstock to form a border around them, then I mounted them on 2 pieces of scrap paper from my stash. I use 2 gelatos (yellow and blue) to colour one of the cogs from the kit and added a little orange to the centre. I finished off my embellishment cluster with a piece of blue fabric and the brick style cut out (both from the kit too).

Next I added paint splatters (I used the stencil from the kit, with some grey paint and texture paste) to the top and bottom corners where my photo and title were going to be placed.



While the paint was drying I worked on my bottom embellishment cluster - 
Orange coloured cog, with green button, some wood veneer chevrons then added my title.



Here is a final look at the whole completed layout. If you would like to check out my process video you can find it on my Youtube channel here.

Winter Planner Layout Share

Hi Scrappers,

Morgyn here with a slightly different project share for you - a planner spread.  I am again using the July Scrapping Fun Kit - this kit is just so versatile.

I decided to decorate the week I am going to the snow, how perfect is this kit for a snow holiday???
I just love the little snowman sticky notes (I could have used these all over the page lol).



A little close up of the left side - I used both types of washi on the layout, then I cut down a piece of the present paper and a cute snowflake as a small embellishment cluster in the middle.


Right side of the layout - Again I used both the washi tapes to decorate then added a couple of left over pieces from my previous 2 projects (check them out A4 layout and mini cards).  The sliver star tag and present paper on 2 squares, and I fussy cut the Hot Chocolate embellishment for the bottom.  As a finishing touch I tied the silver snowflake charm to some red twine to use an a page marker.

Hot Chocolate A4 Layout ~ Scrapping Fun Kits

Hi Scrappers,

Morgyn here with my 2nd project using the July Scrapping Fun kit.

The Hot Cocoa words in this kit just begged to be used for these photos of me having a hot chocolate last year.  We were going on a little family drive and decided to stop for warm drinks, my darling husband snapped a series of photos of me.


I used these a minty green 6x6 pattern paper as my photo mat, then added this neat brown tile paper behind the photo mat.  Than I got set to work on making my embellishment clusters.  In the top left I used part of the hot chocolate 3x4 card 'today is a ...' to make the start of my title.  I used the flower to cover up the other dots, so the title made sense.


Next I worked on the bottom embellishments.  I used the other part of the 3x4 card to make the end of the title 'kind of day'.  Along with the cute cup (so love this little piece) and a couple of gems.


Finally I fussy cut the Hot Cocoa words to finish off the title 'today is a ... Hot Cocoa kind of day'.
I added a little piece of washi tape and the 'hug in a mug' flag to the top right corner of the page, splatted on some brown inks and called the page done.


I don't usually scrap with brown and certainly not a whole page of it, but I really liked how this turned out, so perfect for a hot chocolate layout.  I would love it if you checked out my process video for this layout, you can view it here.

Greeting cards ~ Scrapping Fun Kits

Hi Scrappers, Morgyn here with a couple of quick cards I made using this months Scrapping fun kit, you can subscribe here and get your own.


The first card is a little greeting card with a wintery theme.  I will (hopefully) be attending a Christmas in July themed party this month and this card will be perfect to attach to a secret Santa gift.  I used a small strip of the present paper and trimmed down the 3x4 filler card to make my card front.  I added 2 little bling bits to the snow flakes, then tied a piece of red ribbon to finish it off.



My next card I decided to make a birthday card for my Husband.  Despite the Christmas colours of the paper I thought it worked really well as a birthday card.  I added some twine to the silver star tag for the card front, then used Kaisercraft letter to spell out Happy Birthday + a little bit of bling to finish it off.


These cards only took about 15 minutes to complete, which I think is super quick and means there is no excuse not to give a handmade card.  If you would like to check out my process video for these you can view it here.

Through the lens ~ A4 Layout

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.

Morgyn ~ June Kit ~ Greeting Card


Hi everyone 

Morgyn here with my first project using the June Scrapping Fun 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.

Morgyn ~ May kit ~ Fathers Day Card



Hi scrappers,


Sharing 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 ~ 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.

Hi everyone I'm here with a 12x12 layout using the fabulous May kit from Scrapping Fun Kits.

As soon as I got this kit I knew exactly which photos I wanted to use with it.  I have had these photos sitting in my pile waiting to be scrapped for a while and the colours work perfectly with the May kit. 

Sam grabbed my phone one day (during afternoon tea - hence the carrot in his mouth hehe), he started snapping a bunch of selfies of all his crazy faces - these were the top 6 from about 30.


When creating this layout I started by mounting the photo strips (I created these with the PicFrame app for Iphone) on to black cardstock and trimming around the edge to match the photos. Then I layered the patterned paper from the kit behind the photo.



Next I started on my embellishment clusters - this one is to the left of the photo strips and uses lots of fun elements from the kit. Wooden stars, sequins and the super cute metal flower (I love these).  I also added a small strip of black/white stripe washi tape for a bit of contrast.



I then added a piece of the straw to the middle of the photos (I cut it in half length ways so it wasn't too bulky). For my second embellishment cluster I used the beautiful metal flower and added a flair to the middle of it, plus a couple of little sequins to bring the blue/green colour across the layout.



To finish off the page I added a small cluster of washi tape and a metal gear to the top left of the page, then added some paint splatters and sequins over the page.

Now when I was editing my process video (you can view it here) for this layout I realised I had never added a title, so my question to you all is - what title should I give this layout?? Leave your comments below.

Happy Scrapping

Hi Scrappers,

Morgyn here with this lovely little card I made using the April Scrapping Fun kit, I love how this project came out as I had no plan of what I wanted it to look like when I started.
I will be using this card for my Mother-in-Laws birthday this month.


I cut down a card base to a 6x6 inch square. Then started on making a shaker pocket to put some sequins in.  I made a little frame then added a layer of clear packaging on top followed by a border of patterned paper. After gluing down 3 sides I added the sequins and adhered the 4th side.


Before Sticking down my shaker frame I glued lace to the middle of the card to build my embellishment cluster on.  Starting with the frame, then adding in the crochet and paper flower.


I added in the metal butterfly charm and the little metal flower to the cluster.  I attached down the hello die cut to finish off the card.  Hope you enjoyed this little project.

I have a process video showing how I made this, if you would like to check it out you can find it here.

Scrapping Fun Kits Design Team ~ April Kit ~ In My Cup

Hi Scrappers,

Morgyn here with a little project I am working on this year.  I will be using my monthly Scrapping Fun kits to create a mini layout in my Travellers Notebook.  This project will be using photos I took in February from Photo A Day project I did. Here is the first page using the stunning April kit.



The first prompt was 'in my cup...' and for me that is usually a cup of tea.  I have one every morning - usually made by my sweetheart husband.


I used the purple doily as my background piece then layered some of the pattern paper behind my photo to make a little base.  


Next I went through and added in the title.  I used some Project Life letter stickers and coloured them purple (to match the kit) using my chameleon alcohol markers.


Lastly I added in some embellishments - sequins, flair, wood butterfly and of course the pretty heart paper clip.  I really like how this little layout turned out - can't wait to get a few more of these Photo A Day pictures scrapped!

Please check out my process video for the project here.

Thank you
Morgyn

12x12 Layout ~ #13 ~ Love Always

Hi Scrappers,

I'm back with another layout share,  I used the February Kitaholic kits and some Cocoa Vanilla Studio - just add colour collection to create this layout.


I used some colour shine mixed with water and some metallic watercolour paints and the packaging technique to add some colour to the background.


Then I started making my centre layers.  I mounted my 2 photos onto white cardstock, then on to a grey piece of paper from the collection. I used the reverse side of the paper to create a little layer at the bottom, along with a tiny strip of pink cardstock.  This gave me a great foundation to add my 2 embellishment clusters.


I layered a couple of hearts with a flair in the top left of the photo.  Then some tags and the adorable floral piece to the bottom right.  Finally adding a few gems here and there.  Lastly I put in a strip of the beautiful gold washi tape that came in the kit (I freakin love this washi!).


A few splatters of gold colour shine and some black stitching around the edges and I called it done.

I would love it if you checked out my process video for this layout - you can watch it here.

Create A Kit - March - Counterfeit Kit Challenge

Hi Scrappers,

This month I wanted to do something a little different and create a kit using my stash.  Initially I was going to do a similar project to last year and create a bunch of smaller 'page' kits.  But then my good friend Raelene (dyspraxic organised scrapper) posted a link to her Counterfeit Kit challenge kit for march.  So I decided I would give that a go.

This month the inspiration came from Hip Kit Club's - February kits (which I love).  So with these images as inspiration I dug through my stash to create my own little (it's really quite large, oops) kit to use for the month.


Main Kit
 Embellishment Kit
 Mixed Media Kit
 Project Life Kit

I started with creating my own version of the mixed media kit:






Then what kit would be complete without  more embellishments:


So that's my version of the counterfeit kit for March.  If you would like to play along you can check out their blog here.  Don't forget to add your name to the link up so we can all see what you came up with.  I have also created a more in-depth video of my kit you can check it out here.
