Fun + Sun | Bramble Fox | August Fox Box

Tuesday, 11 August 2020

 
Hey everyone, I have a new layout to share today for Bramble Fox using the super gorgeous August Fox Box. I've used the 'Fun + Sun = Happy Days' title which is in the prettiest colour ever.
I've used another triangle design using triangles from a Vicki Boutin Let's Wander paper and I added more triangles using other papers too. I tucked lots of bits around my photo, including fussy cut flowers from Pink Paislee 5th & Monaco.

I've also used the gorgeous Fruit Salad set and the Lots of Lollies set, both available from the Bramble Fox Shop. I've used two orange lollies as well as a pink pineapple and an orange slice - these are such cute extra details. I love these little perspextives so much.

I added ephemera pieces from Vicki Boutin Let's Wander and Amy Tangerine too. I finished off with sequins by Spiegelmom Scraps and paint splatters.

Thanks so much for joining me today. You can view the process video below and don't forget to head over to the Bramble Fox Shopto get you hands on the goodies I used today.

Happy scrapping

Sweet Stuff | Hip Kit Club | Moodboard Challenge

Sunday, 9 August 2020


Hey everyone, I have a new layout for Hip Kit Club today using the July Kits. I've also used an exclusive Hip Kit Club Subscriber Cut file.

You can find the July kits on the Hip Kit Club website.

You can find the July Cut files on the July Downloads tab.

I am playing along with this week's challenge which is a moodboard challenge. You can play along over on the Hip Kit Club Group on Facebook. Just make a layout that has been inspired by the moodboard and upload it to the thread on the group to be in with a chance of winning a prize.

I was inspired by the coloured swatches on the moodboard so decided to use the brightly coloured card that was in the Pocket Life Kit. I then added Nuvo Embellishment Mousse, mixed to match the colours on the card underneath it, extending the colours. I cut the 'Sweet Stuff' cut file without the ice creams over the coloured card so that the colours showed through the open letters. I added four tiny photos and lots of flower embellishments. I finished with splatters of paint in the same colours. I love how it turned out, so full of happy colours!

Thank you so much for joining me today and don't forget to go an join in with the challenge! My process video can be viewed below.

Happy scrapping

Stay Cool | Scrap Academy | Summer Camp Hopscotch Challenge

Saturday, 8 August 2020

 



 Hey everyone! Welcome to my latest layout for Scrap Academy. We are having a break from classes over the summer and instead we have Summer Camp! Over the six weeks of summer we are holding six fun challenges.
We are kicking off week 3 today and today's challenge is Hopscotch! This week's challenge is sponsored by Lottie Loves Paper who are a fabulous scrapbooking shop with lots of wonderful products to purchase.
You can see the Hopscotch challenge over on the Scrap Academy Facebook Group but basically print (or draw) the Hopscotch grid, throw a counter then follow the instructions in the box in which your counter lands. My counter landed on box 5 which is to use 75% white space, agggghhh!

But I love a challenge and even though leaving 75% white space isn't my usual style I really enjoyed making this layout - it just goes to show that taking part in a challenge can sometimes push you out of your comfort zone and you never know, you might like it!

I started my layout with a small amount of mixed media and then I added some circle elements using papers from Dear Lizzy Here and Now. I kept my embellishments really small and ensured that everything remained close to my small square photo. I added some Perspextives by Bramble Fox and some sequins by Spiegelmom Scraps. When working small, try to stick to smaller embellishments such as flat stickers and puffy stickers or stickers from Sticker Books as they tend to have small items.

Thanks so much for joining me today and you can play along with the Summer Camp Challenges over on the Scrap Academy Facebook Group, and you can view the Process Video below.

Happy scrapping

Fab! | Lottie Loves Paper | Simple Stories Kate & Ash

Friday, 7 August 2020

Hey everyone, here is my latest layout and video for Lottie Loves Paper using the fabulous Kate & Ash collection by Simple Stories.

I've made a large torn layer at the top of the layout using a pretty red patterned paper with little polka dot hearts all over it. I added a contrasting torn later below it and then added my photo centrally. I used the lovely hearts stencil to create some stencilling around my photo - I did this using an ink pad and a sponge ink applicator tool. The stencilling came out really well. (and then I covered most of it up!). I added chipboard elements around my photo and some flat stickers too.

I used one of the foam titles 'FAB' from the foam phrase stickers...I love the font, it's so retro!
I also added a cluster at the bottom of my layout using a border sticker from the sticker sheet and a number of other cute stickers and elements. I also added a few of the metal brads - I love these so much as they are real brads, the kind you have to poke through the paper and split on the other side. That means they won't fall off at a later date, hurrah!

Thanks so much for joining me today and you can view the process video below. I hope you enjoy this layout and don't forget that you can get the fabulous Kate & Ash collection by Simple Stories from the Lottie Loves Paper shop.
Happy scrapping
