Summer Vibes | Bramblefox Design Team

Thursday, 12 July 2018

Hi! I'm sharing a layout today for Bramblefox. I've used the Summer Vibes set that came in the July Fox Box which is a title saying 'Summer Vibes' with a flower attached, as well as another small separate flower. 

I'm on a mission at the moment to scrap all my summery photos using up the Maggie Holmes Carousel Collection that was out last summer. Somehow I ended up with loads of it leftover and loved it soo much so I really feel the need to use this collection rather than let it get dusty until it's out of fashion in 5 years time lol

SoI choose a background paper - this is a bit out of my comfort zone as I usually scrap onto a white background, and built my layout on the patterned paper. I had two photos which I made into a massive cluster on the left side of the paper and then I added the title on the other side of the page.

The two flower Perspextives that I've used both had a hole in the centre. This was fine for the title as it was going onto a plain solid colour but the little flower on the left side had too many things showing through. I therefore added glue to the middle and sprinkled in some gold glitter. I did the same for the title so they would match.

Thanks for joining me today, I hope you've enjoyed my layout and head over to the Bramblefox Website to pick up some lovely Perspextives or sign up for a Fox Box!

Happy scrapping, Niki xx

Tea Time | Bramblefox Design Team

Tuesday, 3 July 2018

Hey there Bramblefox Friends! I'm sharing this layout today for Bramblefox using their 'Just Chillin' Perspextive which was in the July Fox Box. I love this set sooooo much and had the perfect photo for the Just Chillin' one. I also have plenty of photos for 'Lazy Days' too so will be using that on a layout very soon no doubt!

I've used the Boys Rule collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio and I used a cut file from the Silhouette Design Store. The photo was poor quality so I changed it to black and white before printing becuase that always improves a poor quality photo! 

I love how the Just Chillin colour matches perfectly with the Boys Rule paper I used for the tea cups - awesome!  I've added lots of embellishmemts as well as a doodled border and some machine stitching and I've journalled about our 'tea and bis-sticks' ritual which has already been the subject of many scrapbook layouts to date, but we still do it even though neither of us actually drink tea! 

Head over to the Bramblefox Store to get yourself some Perspextives or to sign up for a Fox Box - happy scrapping, Niki xx

Moments Captured | Hey Little Magpie Design Team

Sunday, 1 July 2018

So on the 1st of each month the Hey Little Magpie Design Team members each take a turn to set a monthly challenge. I'm stepping in for a fellow DT member this month and have chosen to go for a stash-busting challenge - it's an easy one, simply to create a layout using stash from an 'older' collection and by 'older' I simply mean not the most recent one!

Easy right! 

I've used Maggie Holmes Carousel. I have loads of it left over from last summer and I really must use it because I love it!  I've thrown loads of it onto this layout which documents my mum's recent 70th birthday. It was the school summer fayre yesterday so I now have lots more photos that are perfect to use with this collection so hopefully I'll get some more of this collection used up asap!

Enjoy the challenge which you can enter on the Hey Little Magpie Papercraft and Scrapbooking Chat & Inspiration Facebook group and there's a chance of winning 1000 Hey Little Magpie Reward Points which is £10 to spend in the shop - happy days. This challenge runs until midnight on 31st July 2018. Enjoy and happy scrapping, Niki xx

Glubes | GoGo Getaway Design Team

 Hey there, it's the 1st of the month which means we have a new challenge for you over at GoGo Getaway today. It's Lisa's turn to set the challenge this month and she has decided to set a Technique Challenge, her chosen technique being 'Paper Piecing'.

I absolutely love Paper Pieced layouts, you can create some really lovely effects. I've chosen to paper piece some mittens, so that I can document the story of my boy and his 'glubes' that he is somewhat obsessed with.

I choose some wintery paper (even though the photos were taken end of March!) and cut the mittens out of three different colours. I used a cut file as a template but actually hand-cut the pieces. I've used a number of Freckled Fawn embellishments from their December 2017 kit and the alphas I've used are from an older Pinkfresh Collection, so I've done well using up some older stash for this layout!

To play along with the challenge, head over to the GoGo Getaway facebook group where you can see all the inspiration from the Design Team and post your own take on the challenge. We have £10 of Hey Little Magpie points available as a prize and every entry throughout 2018 goes into a Grand Prize Draw for a place at a 2019 GoGo Getaway retreat! How awesome is that for a prize :)

Enjoy taking part and we can't wait to see what you create. Happy scrapping, Niki xx

Adventure | Bramblefox Design Team

Saturday, 23 June 2018

Hey there! I'm sharing this layout for Bramblefox today using the very cool Adventure Perspextive that was in this month's Fox Box. I backed the Adventure Perspextive with a dark grey paper to really make it stand out against my white background.

There was red in my photo and I wanted to use the Boys Rule collection by Cocoa Vanilla but it didnt have any red in it, so I pulled out all the grey and black bits and I aso used a paper by One Canoe Two Twilight collection to bring in the red colour.

I then found those two red circle arrows that were from a previous Fox Box but worked totally perfectly for this layout - don't you just love it when that happens!

Head over to the Bramblefox Store to pick yourself up some gorgeous Perspextives and subscribe to a Fox Box! 

Happy scrapping, Niki x
