Twinkle, Twinkle... A4 layout


Hi Scrappers,

Morgyn here sharing my latest project using this months Scrapping Fun Kit .  

This month we had a music themed kit, I was struggling to choose a photo to scrap with this kit.  As I was scrolling through my camera roll I found this little beauty of my little man napping and decided I had to use it.  Usually in the middle of the night the first song that comes into my head is Twinkle Twinkle, so it was totally perfect for this kit layout.



I cut down a large piece of wrapping paper to A4 size and glued it down to a piece of cardstock to create my background piece.  Then I started working on my photo mat, I used 2 pieces of scrap paper from my stash followed by the spotty piece from the kit.


I really wanted to use the chipboard piece of this layout as it was so pretty.  First off I painted it blue then decided I wanted it gold/yellow, so I mixed a splash of yellow into some white paint and covered the chipboard.  After that I found my pot of Inka Gold and spread that over the top.

I made an embellishment cluster using a flair badge, paper rose and metal flower along with some of the music note washi.  I created my title using some kraft/black alpha stickers from Kaisercraft.

I finished it off with a hand drawn boarder around the outside of the page and called it done.
I love how this little layout came together with this sweet photo.

Scrapping Fun Kit - August - Favourite song

Hi Scrappers,

Sharing a little layout I created in my Travellers notebook.  I am using my August Scrapping Fun kit, which was a music theme kit.  As I am using my TN (travellers notebook) to document bits an pieces of my life this year (favourite things and current likes etc.).  This kit was just perfect for documenting what I am listening to right now.



The base of my page is pink paint (left over from a previous project) which I laid down with a roller. I love adding left over paint/texture paste etc. from projects to new pages. It makes it nice and easy to create a new page and no waste :)

I used some tiny letter stickers from Kaisercraft for my title, along with a silver glitter music die cut (a Design team bonus with this kit).


I adhered the lace to the bottom of the page and started layering my photo on to some of the music paper from the kit.  Next I added one of the flair's and a few little gems to the corner of the photo.  I finished off the page by doodling around the page edge with black pen.


This was a nice easy little layout to complete and I never imagined I would scrap a photo of someone from One Direction - but here it is.  If you would like to watch my process video for this layout you can check it out here.

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!!

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.
