Fiesta Fun for Scrapping Fun Kits


Hello crafty friends, Sarah here with another Documenting December layout for Scrapping Fun Kit. Isn’t the silly season upon us already?! I started writing this original blog post while travelling in the car to a work conference (until I got car sick!) and am finishing it off on Saturday morning – that’s multi tasking for you! I’m trying to use my time as effectively as possible when ever I can. It just seems this time of year has less hours in the day perhaps!?!

This layout forms part of the 6×8 album of my 2016 Documenting December album – here’s hoping I can get it done before Christmas this year, though it’s coming up fast.

I have used a piece of patterned paper to create a large pocket across the bottom of the page. Washi tape across the top of this pocket and a photo of my boys matted on a pocket card layered on top of the pocket. Before I placed anything in the pocket, I added some paint to the top of the base page. I applied this Dylusions paints using my fingers, then once dried, stamped the word FIESTA on to it.


The FIESTA is an annual get together we have with close friends to celebrate Christmas. We all bring and shre food – hence the name, fiesta! I layered a tag, cut apart and photos within the pocket. This enabled me to still see all of these feaures with the option of hiding them in the pocket if I wanted to.

The layout was completed using the gorgeous hand made flower from the Documenting December kit, some enamel dots from my stash and the number 17 from the kit – representing the 17 December when this event occurred.

‘Stay Cool’ layout for Scrapping Fun Kits


Hello crafty friends, Sarah here with the very cool November embellishment kit for Scrapping Fun Kits. Based on an Australia feel, this kit is once of my favs! I completed two layouts for you using this kit, and have heaps of content left over for other pages in my Documenting December album. These photos were from Christmas Eve at Lakes Entrance. We were away for Christmas and hit the beach nice and early in the day.

I love the patterned paper in this kit (I just adore circles, dots and spots!) and the cut aparts were great too – the ‘stay cool’ and green banner on the bottom left corner are always handy. The most favorite part of the kit however is the surfing santa ribbon – you’d have to agree it is just so cute! The silver charm prawn is also adorable and totally us! Let’s take a closer look;


The chipboard from Memorymaze Lasercuts was custom designed for this kit – Christmas is all about family. I covered this piece with black ink and covered with clear embossing powder. I heated it and love the shiny, textured finish of the title.


I also completed a second layout for my album, also taken on Christmas Eve. This is of my youngest son looking out of the caravan window waiting for Santa to arrive. Whilst it was still early in the evening, he was eagerly awaiting for this special event.


The chipboard ‘Christmas Eve’ on this layout was again from Memorymaze Lasercuts and inked with Stampin Up’s blue lagoon ink and clear embossed. Whilst you cannot see the true ink colour on the layout, this was picking up on the blues in the coloured paper photo mat.This chipboard is from the Scrapping Fun Kits Documenting December kit. The photo mat paper is from the November embellishment kit. Let’s take a look at the other embellishments in this kit – the ‘merry’ flair and coloured candy cane buttons are just adorable.


All of the base pages for the layouts in my Documenting December album are from Close to my Heart. I hope you enjoyed this post and be sure to check out the November embellishment kit whilst stock lasts! Until next time….

Traveler’s Notebook layout for Scrapping Fun Kits


Hello crafty friends, Sarah here with you with another Travellers Notebook layout for Scrapping Fun Kits. I must say I am just LOVING this style of memory keeping. I’m loving the smaller photos, the ease of printing them and loving the new Scrapping Fun Kits basic Travellers Notebook kit. If you havent seen this already, please check out the fantastic clip by Lauren on her Youtube channel at

Here is what you will get in the kit;

For this layout, I used a photo of my husband and myself to celebrate our relationship and how we can go through ‘any kind of weather’ and still be strong. I was attracted to the ‘weather’ theme of the basics kit, though this layout just goes to show you dont have to go with the obvious intention of the kit contents. The YOU and Me was stamped from a stamp set I had in my stash.


I used the fantastic days of the week washi provided in the kit to highlight the vertical edges of the layout. The large ampersand is in the kit as well as the gorgeous cloud paper embellies. The stickers for the title are from the Design Team exclusive the kit and the small weather stamp from the basics kit was a nice finish to the layout, highlighting the title – ‘any weather’.

As seen below, I layered some patterned paper with pocket cards on the left side, which using a tag that can be pulled out for my journalling. In this Travellers notebook style, I have vowed to include more of my own voice and journalling, though I still like to hide it a little, particularly if it is more private.


If you havent already, hurry to get your own Travellers Notebook basics kit – this is available until sold out. Thanks for joining me! Until next time…

Spring moodboard challenge for Scrapping Fun Kits

TN moddboard

Hello crafty peeps, Sarah here with my very FIRST travellers notebook (TN) layout for Scrapping Fun Kits. Can you believe it! I am so late to the trend but could really see myself loving it. The size is so compact and easy to complete without much time at all. This layout was inspired by this months moodboard – the colours primarily attracted me. Love a bit of purple and yellow. This TN will be a focus on stories I want to tell about me and my time on the planet, so I thought this was a fitting first page. Let’s take a look;

TN final

I completed this page using the Scrapping Fun Kits Design Team exclusive kit – there’s such a great amount of papers and embellishments to complete many, many layouts. Lauren has a great unboxing clip on her you tube channel where you can see all of the kit contents and it will give you an idea about future kits and what you can expect to receive.

Documenting December 2016 for Scrapping Fun Kits


Hello crafty friends, I am here with an exciting blog post showcasing just a small part of the Scrpping Fun Kits Documenting December kit! I am so in love with this kit….I am working on my 2016 December photos, so hopefully getting the album completed before Christmas comes around this year. This photo is of the Christmas list my son created at day care…even though it changed a number of times before Santa even arrived!


This page is a 6X8 size. The photo mat was created using coloured paint. I have used the large dotted paper bag and punchinella as a base for the photo and has the ‘wishlist’ tag popping out the top. The little Santa hat is just adorable!


I have attached the sewn letter from Santa onto the binder rings so it can easily be moved as the album is flipped through. The embellishments as seen here (the stocking and the gingerbread man) are just beautiful and perfect for any Christmas or December layout. Within this kit, there are glittery numbers, one for each day. I have paired this with a ‘DAY” stamp from Kellie Stamps to highlight as each page is made, what day it is in December when events occured.


I would encourage you to get in quick and order your DD kit if you havent already and check out the Scrapping Fun Kits blog for more December inspiration! Stay tuned for more layouts in the coming weeks…..until then!


Thinking BIG for Kraft Plus Challenges

kraftchallengeI am pleased to be representing Scrapping Fun Kits as a sponsor of this months Kraft Plus Challenge. This months challenge, as pictured above is think BIG.  For my layout I used a BIG tag and BIG letters for my title.  Lets take a look at the layout below;

Kraft final

The background of this layout is a Kraft glittered cardstock, edged with blue paint to compliment the colours of the tag on it. Firstly, I took the large tag, 12x20cms and added various colours of Dylusions paints to it using my fingers.


I then added the layers behind the photo. I am working on a Family 2017 pocket page album and am using this 8.5×11 inch page for the April cover page. The photo is of my boys on a walk we did in a local park.

I layered the photo, as seen below with patterned paper, punchinella and a dotted paper bag from my stash that I tore to add texture.  I used some of the embellishments from D-lish Scraps (dude with attitude label) and wooden arrows to add to the tag.


I adhered the tag to the background page and added some BIG alphabet stickers I had in my stash from Creative Memories – so long ago.  I outlined these with black ink and adhered them down.  A simple but pretty layout with the Kraft glittered background showing through.  Let’s take a closer look;


I then added a few enamel dots in yelow to compliment the paint colours on the tag.


Why not give this challenge a go yourself for a chance to win one of Scrapping Fun’s November kits!  It’s not one to be missed!  Please be sure to check out the Kraft Plus challenge here and all of the gorgeous kits available from Scrapping Fun Kits here.  Thanks for joining me….


October kit Planner Layout for Scrapping Fun Kits


Hello crafty friends, I am here with a planner layout for you this month using the amazing October kit from Scraping Fun Kits. Not only did I create this layout, but have a stack of product left over in the kit for more projects. Whilst we do take the boys trick or treating at Halloween, I enjoy any opportunity to play dress ups! This kit is fantastic for those Halloween off the page projects, layouts or cards. It’s equally suitable for any other projects in this colour range, as you can see by the many ideas the Design Team has put together.

This kit has many different elements – some of my favorite parts include the cut aparts cards and labels, punchinellea, flair buttons, washi tapes and sequins!. Lets take a closer look at that beautiful stacked pumpkin paper embellishment. I used the patterned paper to fill in some of the planner boxes. This A5 planner layout is from Scrapper’s Delights – check it out on their website The ribbon in the kit filled the far right box and I used the embellishments to decorate the page.


As you can see in the background, the gorgeous silver spider web charms are hung from twine and adhered to the page. The witches hat paperclip, as seen in the photo below is a lovely touch to the layout also. The washi tape selection in this kit is generous – the black and silver bat tape across the top of the layout as well as the thin washi tape I have used on the planner blocks (plus another one I didn’t use) comes in the kit. Oh, who am I kidding…I love the whole lot!


Anyway, thanks for joining me for this post – I look forward to seeing what you do with this kit, whether it be a planner page, layout or card! Until next time….
