By the Sea | Just Nick Design Team

Monday 23 July 2018

Hiya, I'm up on the Just Nick blog today with this layout using the By the Sea cut file from the store. I've mostly used Maggie Holmes Carousel which I'm on a mission to get used up lately! I've added in a few random embellishments too as I really am trying to get some older stash used up (so I can buy more new stash!)

Happy scrapping, Niki xx

Free Spirit | Bramblefox Design Team

Hello there, I'm sharing a layout for Bramblefox today. Today is my last post as a Bramblefox Design Team Member - my term has come to an end and as I'm due to have a baby in 3 weeks time I figured it was sensible to step down and let some new Design Team Members have a turn - make sure you check them out and their designs, as they are all awesome!

So very sadly this is my last layout for Bramblefox, but I will no doubt continue making layouts with Bramblefox Perspextives as I LOVE them!  

I have used the Free Spirit Perspextive that came in the July Fox Box which is a gorgeous colour. I've paired it with a mixture of two collections by Pretty Little Studio - Dream Big and With All My Heart. The paper that forms the frame around the edge is Maggie Holmes Carousel. I've used pictures of my gorgeous girl with no story to tell in particular - she is a free spirit with her head in the clouds most of the time so this Perspextive was perfect for her.

I made a large vertical cluster going down the centre with the photos and the Perspextive title being the focal points. I've then built up the embellishments and added all sorts of little bits and pieces.

Thanks so much for joining me today and make sure you head over to the Bramblefox Website to pick up some lovely Perspextives or sign up for a Fox Box. Thanks to Morag for having me over the last six months, I've enjoyed every moment.

Happy scrapping, Niki xx 

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!

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
