Creating Carnival Layouts

Shiloh Jorgensen One Amazing Day layout 1

Shiloh had a blast playing with the Kiwi Club Kit from July 2021, The Happiest Place on Earth. Whether you’re looking for how she used this Paper Crafting Kit specifically, or if you’re looking for inspiration for your own carnival layouts, check out the three layouts she Played-To-Create with this single Kiwi Club Kit.

Whether your memories are from a carnival, an amusement park, a carousel, or a party, The Happiest Place on Earth is just the paper crafting kit to accentuate your fun-time Funfair memories. 

One Amazing Day Layout

Shiloh found that the Happiest Place on Earth paper from the July 2021 Kiwi Club Kit was the perfect paper for some old pictures that she hadn’t had a chance to scrapbook yet. It was a fun opportunity to reminisce on the memories she has of her children who are growing up so quickly. Sometimes, all you’re waiting for is the right set of paper to inspire you.

How to Create a Sunburst Effect

There is certainly more than one way to create this bright sunburst effect, but Shiloh kept it simple by using what she had on hand. She used Scenic Route (3) from the June 2021 Kiwi Club and the Celebrate (6) Accessory to create the larger rays that she then cut into thinner strips. She also kept the strips longer than the page so that she could trim them to the edge of the paper once she had adhered everything down.

Take a Ride on a Ferris Wheel

This adorable Ferris Wheel was a breeze to put together. The base was simply Funfair (6) and Rings (3), which fit perfectly together. The seats and the circle on the center could be made in several different ways. If you have a circle hole punch in a size you want, you could use that, and then cut the circles in half for the seats. If you already have the Rings set out, you could use the inner circle of Rings (1).

“Fussy Cutting” Tip: Shiloh doesn’t mind “Fussy Cutting” when it comes to the cutout details of the Funfair piece she used for her Ferris Wheel. If the cutouts are larger sizes, she will just use her scissors. For these small detail cuts, she got out her exacto knife. If you aren’t a fan of this kind of cutting, but you still want those details, you can pull out your pens, and use those spaces as stencils to add doodle elements, instead.

You can use Mini Photos to layer a couple extra memories to your layouts. The smaller sizes make it easy to add more photos, and matting them makes sure that they don’t get lost in busy paper patterns.

Shiloh used liquid pearls to add extra dimension and detail to the bumper car.

Central Park Layout

Create a Carousel

Shiloh was happy to scrapbook her New York trip with her daughter, especially with the Funfair templates she used to create the carousel horse. She only used two designer templates for the carousel horse, but she created it with multiple layers.

  • Shiloh started with Funfair 3 and 4, and instead of tracing and cutting out the entire designer template, she only traced and cut out the portions she wanted in each paper. 
  • For the horse, she cut out only the horse shape in one paper, and then she traced and cut the pole portion out of a different pattern. 
  • Similarly, with the canopy, she cut the flag on the top out of the same paper that she used for the platform. With the flag and the canopy, you can either trace and cut out the entire canopy and flag in one paper, and then adhere the different colored flag on top of the base flag, or you can omit the flag on the canopy base and simply use the different colored flag. 
  • The platform was also just a strip of paper, no designer template necessary. 
  • Once you have the base of your horses and canopy, dress up your carousel as much as you wish.

Get your own Funfair template set! This accessory set includes 6 carnival-themed templates. Size Estimates:

  • 1(2.04″x0.8″)
  • 2(1.94″x3.9″)
  • 3(2.82″x3.55″)
  • 4(4.3″x2.7″)
  • 5(4.5″x2.74″)
  • 6(4.8″x4.8″)


An integral part of Playing-To-Create is adjusting the individual elements to fit your design needs. You can use the Designer Templates just as they are, but they may not always fit the layout you’re trying to create. When this happens, feel free to play and adjust the pieces to your project. Shiloh did this with several aspects of this layout. The carousel horse was just the beginning.

  • For her borders, she used Chestnut Drive across the bottom center, but she didn’t use the full 12 inches. She cropped the ends to fit beneath her photos and between the accessories. 
  • The top border was only the bubbly edge of Placemats 1. She didn’t need to use the entire Placemat, and the edge makes a really fun visual.
  • You might notice that the tree trunk from Autumn is longer on the layout. There are two ways you could accomplish this. What Shiloh did, since the trunk was hidden behind the photo, was to cut and trace Autumn like normal, but she cut the trunk in half so that she could adjust how much showed above and below the photo. The other way would be to add some length in the center when tracing and before you start cutting so that it really is a longer piece. You would want to do this if your entire tree is going to be visible.
  • And similarly, Shiloh made the template that she used behind the word Central longer. She used Tiny Notations 5T as the base, but she needed a larger backdrop for her title, so she simply extended the lines, which were easy with the straight edges.

Clown Around Layout

Shiloh took full advantage of her July Kiwi Club Kit and managed to create a third layout. For this layout, she pulled in an extra set of background papers and white cardstock out of her paper stash.

Take a Peek

The open tent flaps in this template from Funfair is the perfect place for a piece of journaling or for a picture to peek through. Shiloh used a journaling card with lines so that she could keep her writing straight.

Hidden Pictures

Shiloh also likes to add spaces for more pictures. You can see the hidden pictures in action in the video. In this layout, she hid an additional picture beneath the picture that she attached the fair ticket to. That ticket acts as a tag that you can use to pull the picture up and reveal the photo beneath. She uses strips of paper with adhesive attached beneath both photos like a hinge so that they’re attached to the background paper and so that the top photo opens up like a flap.

If you’re looking for a designer template to use for your title cards, Expressions 4 fits so many of the title cards with a cute and versatile design.

Sketch It Out

This layout was also based on a sketch. Sketches are so useful to inspire, and everyone creates something different from the same sketch. Susan and Debbie both created a layout from this sketch, and they are all vastly different, but they all turned out so cute.

Why don’t you take a shot at this sketch and create a layout of your own? If you do, we would love to see them! Post your layout in the Community so everyone can see and be inspired. There are so many different ways you can Play-To-Create with this sketch. If you haven’t had a chance to play with your July Kiwi Club Kit, this is a fun opportunity to set aside time to create!

By participating in the Program, Advocates agree to use the Program in the manner specified in these Terms and Conditions. If they do not agree to these Terms and Conditions in their entirety they are not authorized to become an Advocate or participate in the Program in any manner. Advocates may not participate in the Program where doing so would be prohibited by any applicable law or regulations.

We reserve the right, at any time, to modify or amend these Terms and Conditions and/or to disqualify any Advocate from participation in the Kiwi Lane Savings Program if he/she does not comply with any of these Terms and Conditions.
