Scrapabilly June kit shares (part 1)

The June Scrapabilly kit is fantastic and a thrill to work with. It's based around the Pink Paislee Atlas collection which of course, is absolutely my kind of collection. It's full of maps, globes, travel icons and cute cameras. I love it. I can never resist travel themed items so I knew I was going to have fun with it.

There's 10 sheets of paper, the matching die-cuts, chipboard elements and some sparkly enamel shapes from the collection as well as white luggage tags, twine, a full set of twirly white Thickers and matching cardstock. I added in extra cardstock, a set of October Afternoon Mini Market alphas here, a few letters from a navy blue set of Thickers and some mists. I also got myself the full set of Atlas sparkly enamel shapes here.

Here's the full kit and don't forget that you can get yourself one at the Scrapabilly shop here.

I made five layouts with the kit and so check back on Saturday to see the second part of my share.

I loved this paper so much that I just needed to be used as a background which is something I don't do so often these days. I need to add the journalling about meeting Stephanie when she came over to Europe but the rainbow plane seemed so perfect for this May highlight. The pack of die cuts was so much fun to use with the stars, cameras and that cute stack of suitcases.

Continuing along the travel theme, I considered how my view of where I want to travel to is changing over the years. Rather than getting longer, the list of places I still want to visit is getting shorter! So it might be time to just record the places still on the list right now. The pull out journalling still needs to be completed. In fact, the journalling for all five layouts needs to be written because I decided that I wanted to take my time to really think about what I want to say. Something that has come about due to my recent sorting of layouts.

Another sheet of paper that needed to be used as a whole :-) Map paper is a weakness of mine so I knew that I had to design around that world print. Taking some photos from a long time ago, I wanted to reflect on the fact that we have so many incredible places to see here in Europe. Even though we feel that some places are a long way away, in reality all these destinations are on our doorstep! I love that about our continent.

There's more to see over at the Scrapabilly gallery here. Such a great kit that inspired us all and hopefully you too.


  1. Such layered goodness on each and every page. Makes me want to scrap some travel pages right now.

  2. What a lovely trio of layouts! I haven't paid too much attention to the Atlas Collection but seeing how you used it definitely makes me want to take a second look. Love the mix of sizes and colors in your titles, especially that last one. The gray, red and white is such a classic combination. All your layouts have such fun and interesting embellishment clusters - you have a great talent for adding and layering items that reinforce the themes of your pages. And I appreciate you sharing the photos so that I can soak in all the details!
    (You mentioned sorting your layouts - have you taken the Deep Dive Story Centered Album course from Noell and Shimelle? I thought I heard them read a comment from you on a recent PRT episode. I bought that class immediately because I was struggling with organizing all my layouts and it has given me so many wonderful ideas.)

  3. I love anything to do with maps and travel, so I am eyeing up this lovely collection. What a lot of lovely pages you've been able to make!

  4. Love the exuberance of these pages!
    Sentimental favorite is the CKC/Stephanie page :-)
    You've definitely maxed out the potential of this Scrappabilly kit.
    Your comment about really thinking about want you want to say on your pages strikes a cord with me.

  5. Beautiful layouts and I just love that layout with you and Stephanie :)


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time. <3 <3 <3
