Scrapbooking in my Traveler's Notebook on the Tilt Train

I got short notice for a trip to Brisbane with the boys for appointments this week and I thought the new TN Scrapbooking Kits from Scrapping Fun Kits were perfect for taking minimal supplies to scrap.  It meant I could take even less weight in my bag then what I did last November when I scrapped on the Tilt Train.

I put up a video on how I set up my TN for this trip, the only thing I added after filming the video was I added the papers from the August Kit from Scrapping Fun Kits and a Music die cut.

It was a great way to pass time on our journey and I got 3 layouts done very quickly.

The first layout I worked was about going to lunch with some close friends, something we had not done in a couple of years so it was a real treat.
I only used items from the promo kit for the TN Scrapbooking Kit range to complete this layout and the date stamp from the Basics Kit.
My stamping is smudged but I am happy with the results given I was on a moving train.
I used the cute yellow wood with flower paper on the right and some of the die cuts from the kit on the left.
I then used some of the washi from the kit to pull the layout together by having it go across the 2 pages.

The second layout I worked on was about how much I love hearing the boys practice their instruments.
I used items from the August Embellishment Kit and the 2 3D metal flower die cuts from the promo kit.
Getting a straight edge with scissor on a train was difficult but I really wanted to trip the papers and one of the photos.

For my third layout I ironically was recording my last Tilt Train trip with Mr C.
I started by cutting the spotty paper in half so I could put it across the top of the spread.
I wanted a black and white only layout so restricted myself just to black and white bits from what I had with me.
I added some of this cute washi along the bottom of the paper to hide my crooked cutting.
Then I built my layers with what I had left that was black and white and my photos.
I used a newsprint tag from the promo kit and a journal card with the word Tuesday repeated all over it from the Basics Kit to build some layers.
Cutting my photo with just scissors on a moving train meant it wasn't perfect but I do love how the layout turned out.
I feel I need to add something to this one, not sure what but I think it will be one I tinker with later.

Scrapping on a long train journey is a great way to pass the time and these kits are perfect for portable scrapbooking.
I loved being able to get these layouts done while the boys listened to music and read books.
