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.


Thanks for stopping by

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
