Mary Poppins Memories in a Pocket Page Notebook - Scrapping Fun Kits DT

Living in the town PL Travers was born in means I have a lot of Mary Poppins memories to document in addition to my memories of enjoying the movie as a child and again as a parent with my children.  I really wanted to do a mini album for all these memories but I couldn't decide on a size so I thought a Traveller's Notebook insert would be perfect for this project.  I love TN Scrapping it is a great way to get memories down quickly.

So Today's post is about documenting this year's Mary Poppins Festival, I left several pages in the front of my insert for documenting my childhood memories and taking my kids to the festival when they were younger to the Festival.

The boys weren't up to attending this year but my 20 year old was visitng so we went down together which was a lovely nostalgic time for us as she hasn't attended since she was in Primary School.  Despite her not wanting to have her photo taken she did post for a photo when buying a ice cream from the oldest operational Mr Whippy in Australia and a quick selfie with me when eating the ice cream.

There was so many wonderful costumes and so much going on, we could have taken hundreds of photos and not captured all the wonderful things.
So let's get started with some of the pages I created.  

I started with decorating the cover of my Pocket Page Notebook (the one I bought was a seconds and is great, just some crinkles in the pocket pages) from The Stamp Spot.   You may have seen this already if you follow me on Facebook and Instagram.

You can find the Process Video for this here.  (sorry  no voice over as I am still learning to use this new software)

I used Distress Inks to blend a sunset background.  My distress tool had gone missing so I just used a dry baby wipe and it worked really well for getting the ink down and blended.

I then glued the London Cityscape die cut from the Scrapping Fun Kits August 2018 kit along the bottom of my cover and a die cut of Mary Poppins to the front.

Perfect for all my Mary Poppins memories.

For this layout of my daughter buying a icecream I used the adorable kite paper along the top and added a scrap of paper from Kaisercraft Rose Avenue to the bottom.  To hid the join I used the lace from the August 2018 kit that I had left over from creating my White with 1 Challenge layout.   To finish hiding the join I created a cluster with stickers from Kaisercraft Romantique collecion and a die cut from Kaisercraft Wandering Ivy collectables.
I coloured my typed journaling with Distress Ink Walnut Stain using the same technique I used on my Butterbeer layout last month.

I love how this page turned out.  The kite paper coordinated so well with my scraps and the lace was just perfect for pulling it all together.

Some photos on layouts are covered due to my forgetting to ask permission to share them.

The kite and spoon from the cut apart combined with one of the cute wood veneer tea cups in the August 2018 Kit were the perfect little accent for this layout which is some photos of people costume.
I loved seeing people of all ages in costume, from young children and teens to adults of all ages including many elderly people.  It was fantastic to see everyone having so much fun so a large part of this project is photos of people in costume.

The Penny Farthing chipboard from Memorymaze that was in the August 2018 kit was perfect for documenting my search for the men who come with Penny Farthings each year.

I used the left over piece of kite paper for the background and added a Mary Poppins clip art I found online, a tag from the printable I made and some bits from Kaisercraft Wandering Ivy Collectables.

You can download the printable I made here.

I was getting towards the end of my supplies but the clock and carousel horse from the cut apart in the kit and one of the wood veneer tea cups were perfect for this layout of a pic of the Mary Anne (a old steam train that runs in Queens Park every Thursday, at Sunday in the Park and at the Mary Poppins Festival).
I also added a label from the printable I made myself and used some paper from Kaisercraft Wandering Ivy for the background.

So there are a few of the pages in my Mary Poppins Pocket Page Notebook.  I will share more pages in another post at 3pm up on my blog and the Helmar blog and I will have a flip through up on my Youtube channel shortly for you.
I hope it has inspired you to create.
