I'm back with a layout for May and looking forward to summer with a layout called
I started by adding my photo just off centre on the right of the base paper, mounted on two pale coloured papers. I love the blue and orange colour combination in this photo so I used it throughout my design.
I die cut lots of seaside elements with my Silhouette and arranged them on either side
of the photo and added some enamel dots to mimic bubbles - at least I hope they do!
I added the place name of the beach on a swag sticker beneath the photo.
Then I placed my white Perspextive in the lower left corner over a double cut
sunshine die cut to make it stand out a little and added some 'seaweed'.
This is a fairly simple layout with most of the elements arranged along the centre line
but I didn't want to overload it with too many details, as I wanted the photo to take
Looking forward to seeing your summer layouts, do please share them on our
Philippa here sharing my latest 12 x 12 layout documenting more of my daughter's trek in Nepal. The 'adventures' perspextive couldn't have been better! It's available in the store in charcoal, white and mint!
I wanted to pick up on the dusty colours of the track in the photo so I painted my background using a combination of matt and pearlescent water colours with added splatters of copper acrylic and a spray of dark mist which I blotted off straight away. I also used a delicate decorative tree stamp.
I had some papers from the old Pink Paislee Auburn Lane collection donated by a friend (as if I needed more papers!!) and they fitted perfectly with my colour palette. I added a torn border, matted my photo to include a layer of tissue paper and dyed a small piece of scrim for added texture.
I picked out complementary colours of thread for my hand stitching.
Combining the perspextive with fine copper coloured alphas worked well.
One day I'm sure my daughter will appreciate all my efforts!
I'll be back next month with another layout using perspextives from the June Fox Box. They are so lush I can't wait to share!!
It's always fun playing with new things. I love this new Create Art Perspextive design - I really like the mix of fonts. A layout about a recent crafting trip was the perfect way to use it.
I wanted to create a rainbow effect coming from the paint brush stamp. Originally I wanted spashes of paint, but I had tried a couple of things without success so ended up painting with Distress Oxides. It was so much easier than my previous attempts!
I layered crepe paper streamers along the edge in matching colours - I love this pretty effect!
I used more crepe paper to back the Perspextive - I was originall going to use patterned paper or colour the background with ink but this added great texture and another pop of colour.
Finally I layered some fussy cut elements and die-cuts from the I Heart Crafting (Echo Park) collection. I hand cut some tags for a bit more interest. Did you notice the tiny jar of brushes? I cut out the elements from patterned paper and made a slit in the jar to slot them in. So cute!
I also wanted to share the latest Fox Box and the super new free gift for subscribers (be still my beating heart!).

Hey there, Niki here again today with my latest layout for Bramble Fox. I've used the Glitzy & Glamour set in Rose Gold and also added a few hearts in black which are Petite Perspextives.
I've used another patterned paper background for this layout...I'm trying to push myself out of my comfort zone. The pink background paper is by Heidi Swapp, Color Fresh collection and the rest of the papers and embellishments are Maggie Holmes Sunny Days.
This is a picture of my lovely girly, so the Glitzy & Glamour set went perfectly. I love the rose gold colour, it's so pretty. I've used one crown and the geo heart in the photo / embellishment cluster and I've also used the diamond in the lower cluster.
I also snuck a teeny tiny bow down there too. I love this Maggie Holmes Sunny Days Collection - the colours are lovely and it's perfect for documenting holiday photos. It has some black in the collection which really makes things pop, and therefore I put in a few black heart perspextives to go with that. The black heart perspextives are Petite Perspextives and are in a set called Hearts Galore.
Thank you so much for joining me today - head over to the Bramble Fox Store to pick up some of these goodies.
Hi there, it's Wendy up on the blog today sharing a summer layout inspired by our recent spell of warm weather, I am definitely a summer person and love the warm weather. I started this LO using distress oxide inks, something I've never used before and am quite pleased with the result. The colours are lovely and bright and lift the photos and go perfectly with the perspectives.
I used the SUNNY DAYS perspextive from the May FOX BOX, so perfect for these Photos, Crate Paper SUNNY DAYS collection had great selection of embellishments ideal for summer pictures.
I then used the yellow distress oxide ink just to high light the Sun perspextive and make it stand out a bit more.
i also used Pink Fresh Studio Everyday Musings and Joyful Day collections, the frames and the puffy phrase stickers helped to finish off the LO. All the elements together captured how hot and sunny it was in Crete where these photos were taken. I hope this will inspire you Summer is on its way and to use those gorgeous embellishments from the May Fox box.
Don't forget to check out the shop and see all the latest goodies arriving all the time.
Hey, Bramble Fox Friends! I'm back with a boy-themed layout I created for one of my fourth grade students using three pieces from the May Fox Box plus a piece from the Fancy Hearts.
I have this Imagine collection by Echo Park with that fun superhero sticker, so that was my starting point. I love using lots of patterns but not in a way to overwhelm the photo, so I like using them with cut files. I used Paper Issues awesome free cut file called Circle Burst. Next, I set out to choose my Perspextives. I knew I was going to use some of the words from the May Fox Box because the colors went well with this collection, and then it dawned on me that I could use the word "here" and just cover the line in the "e" with part of the paper airplane and make the word "here" into "hero."
I love the words in the May Fox Box. They're so versatile, and by adding some additional words, either with letter stickers as I did in the title at the bottom or on a cloud, like I did at the top, you can make just the right title or message. So many possibilities...
I hope I gave you some ideas for not only a boy themed layout but also for using all the awesome words in the May Fox Box. Please share your creations with us on the Bramble Fox Friends Facebook page.
Hi there Fox Friends, Julie back with you again today sharing a fun layout using some of the goodies out of the May Fox Box plus a couple of the girls out of the Little People pack.
I just love snapchat & the funny photos you can get on there & these photos came from an evening out with my boss & friend Morag. We were at a Mexican restaurant & it was just too funny that these images were on snapchat when we looked & I snapped a couple of photos of us. Morag has also scrapped these images so you'll see those sometime soon.
I started by adding some mixed media to my background, using the packaging technique & stencilling over that. I then added some word stamping & the date all over the page. I then clustered my photos & embellishments down the central line, tucking in bits & bobs that went with my theme, managing to use up a few of the cactuses that had been in my stash for a while.
The title is the Memories perspextive out the May Fox Box along with the brackets & I added 2 of the Little People girls at the bottom to represent us both.
Thanks for joining me today & make sure you check out Bramble Fox on Facebook & Instagram for inspiration everyday.
Hi Bramble Fox Friends, Niki here today with my latest layout for Bramble Fox. I've used the fabulous Boys will be Boys Perspextive in turquoise which is available in the store. It's one of the fabulous new Perspextives and it's so perfect for documenting photos of the boys in your life.
I've used Simple Stories Oh Happy Day collection for this one and I challenged myself to use patterned paper for my background. I added a large strip of white of course so I had somewhere to put my photos and that fabulous Perspextive.
I distressed all the edges of the paper layers and use embellishments from the same collection. The Boys will be Boys Perspextive was about the same size as my three photos, so I included it within my strip of photos.
Even though black (or any colour really) backgrounds really aren't my thing, I like the way this one turned out, so I will continue with my personal patterned paper challenge I think :)
Thanks so much for joining me today and happy scrapping
