Happy Autumn- Bramble Fox

 Hey everyone!

Today is my day to post on the Bramble Fox blog. This month is my turn to post the challenge. My challenge is to be inspired by the fall mood board I created:


I was inspired by the fall theme and the colors in the mood board:


I decided to use photos of my daughter from a photo shoot we did in our back yard last fall. I clustered 3 together and added this one by itself. This is my favorite photo from the shoot. The Favourite perspextive was perfect for it. I place the photo on a strip of torn patterned paper and added some fussy cut pumpkins and a tag:


I used Thickers and Pink Fresh Studio alphas for my title:


I added a few diecuts along with this Tiny Tag that I added twine to:



I added a diecut and a heart from the January Fox Box:


This is thge area to the right of my photos on top. I added a torn strip of patterned paper for the photos to sit on. Then I added some fussy cut pumpkins and flowers:


I had a blast creating this fun fall page!
I hope you are inspired by the mood board this month! Be sure to upload your layout in the challenge album in the BF Facebook Group before October 31st to be eligible to win a gift certificate from the Bramble Fox store.
I can't wait to see your take on this challenge!

Today

 Hey there!

It's my day up on the Bramble Fox blog today. Today I am sharing my take on the September challenge.
This month we have a sketch challenge for you and it's a fun one! I pretty much followed the sketch except I didn't add the "rays" of patterned paper. I used KaiserCraft Sea Breeze collection along with some beautiful perspextives from Bramble Fox for this page of Greg and I and some friends on our annual apple orchard trip:


I fussy cut flowers from one of the patterned papers and placed them under/around my photo. I added a tag from 7 Dots. I fussy cut the "awesome" label from the Paper Snips #001:


I added the Today persextive in black partially on top of my photo. I added a few heart stickers from the collection. I also added white acrylic paint spatters:


I used embroidery floss to hand stich the "sun rays". I added some of the Cool Stars along with some fussy cut leaves:




I loved the look of the branding strip on this patterned paper, so I decided to add it into my layout by creating a cluster at the bottom:


Here's the challenge:


I love how this page came out and I had a blast creating it!
Thanks for stopping by and I will see you again soon!

Vacation

 Hey there!

Today I am sharing my take on sketch # 534 by the very talented Bev Code at Sketches In Thyme. I used a Cricut cutfile and Pink Paislee Little Adventurer 6x6 paper pad for this fun travel page of Sierra and Felipe:


I added watercolor to my background and then added my cutfile on top. I machine stitched it to add some texture. I added an Airplane from Creative Embellishments that I heat embossed. I added a few layers of patterned papers behind my photos and fussy cut some flowers:


I heat embossed the Vacation chipboard piece and used that as my title:


I added a few fussy cut tickets, flowers and diecuts on top of the Creative Embellishments Globe that I heat embossed. I added a bow made from Black Taffy Twine on top of the tag:


Here is the sketch:


I hope you find some time to play along with all 4 of the sketches this month. SIT is now on Facebook so that is where you can find the albums to add your page to.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Yee-Haw!

 Hey there everyone!

I am sharing a card that I created for 88 and Clear using the Hay Thanks DigiNext Collection. I used Rich Cactus Sugar Stock for the base of my card:


I added layers of Tangy Apple and Sour Mist Sugar Stocks. I used Java Chip Sugar Stock to create my "barn doors". I fussy cut a few of the cactis and added them to my card. I fussy cut the horse and sentiment and painted them with watered down Java Chip Sugar Drops:

Detour to a Beautiful Day

Hey there everyone!
I am back to share another travel layout with you that I created for Creative Embellishments. This photo was taken when Greg and I were on vacation in Chatanooga back in March. I used a few goodies from the CE store along with Echo Park Little Dreamer -Boy for this page:

   

 I added some torn strips of patterned papers to my white cardstock and then added some machine stitching. I colored the "Detour" chippie from the Travel Word Set 2 with ink and placed it above my photo. I used this as part of my title. I also added the bridge Geo Tag:

   

 I added a few of  White Clouds:

   

 I used some October Afternoon alphas along with the Beautiful Day chippie to finish off my title. I colored this with inks. I fussy cut a few cars, boats and the speech bubble from a few of the papers. I used a punch for my water and added the thin strips under my boats:

   

 I added another Geo Tag at the bottom:

   

 I love how this page came out! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Heart & Home

 Hey there friends!

Today I am sharing my take on case file #395 at CSI. I used lots of stash for this page about my home:


I added strips of torn papers from Pink Fresh to both sides of my page along with some machine stitching. I used some Simple Stories alpha stickers for the word "heart" and the black ampersand. I used chipboard monograms from Making Memories- these were all the rave shortly after I started scrapping. I colored them with 88 and Clear Nectar Stone Sugar Cube. Then I used 88 and Clear Black Taffy Sugar Cube and Creative Embellishments Distressed Text Stamp. Finally I added a bit of green Versa Color ink around the edges. I fussy cut the hearts and clouds from the PF papers:


I fussy cut the potted plants and leaves and also added a heart sticker and a flair from my stash:


I added a tassel from Pink Fresh, a globe from Simple Stories and a few diecuts from Pink Fresh:


I fussy cut the ouse from a Simple Stories paper and added a flair from Fancy pants and a few more fussy cut leaves and plants:


Here's a quick peek at the case file:


I had a blast creating this page and I love that I used lots of stash!
Hope you will play along this month!

Camping Pretties

 Hey scrappy friends!

Today I am sharing a layout I created for 88 and Clear using the Stand Tall DigiNext collection along with some Creative Embellishments chipboard. I love decorating my campsite with signs and lights when we go camping and I love walking to see other campsites "pretties", so I decided to create a layout about this:


I added a strip of Sour Guava Sugar Stock and a piece of the leaves patterned papers from the Stand Tall collection. Since neither of the papers are 12" long, I cut them and added my photos in the middle.
I fussy cut the palm trees and flamingos from the Stand Tall collection.


 I used the Creative Embellishments "Camping" chipboard word for part of my title. I added a few layers of white Gesso to it. For the blue on top, I mixed 2 drops of Sweet Blue Sugar Drops and 1 drop of Rich Blueberry Sugar Drops and used a paint brush to apply:


I added Sour Watermelon Sugar Stock behind my photos. I colored the lantern from Creative Embellishments  the same way as the "camping" above. I added some Tim Holtz word phrases cutting them in half to fit my page better. I also added a flamingo flair:


I used Hip Kit Club alphas for the rest of my title. I added some fussy cut flowers, leaves and a pineapple from the Stand Tall collection


I added an Oil Lamp from CE here and colored it with the Gesso and Sugar Drops. I used Sour Guava Sugar Drops to paint the flame in this one:


I really enjoyed creating this page and I love how it came out!
I hope I have inspired you in some way.
See ya soon!

Families Are Forever

Hello Scrappy friends!
Today I am sharing a layout I created for Creative Embellishments. I used lots of chipboard pieces from the CE store along with items from my stash on this layout of Greg and his siblings:

   

 I added watercolors to my background. I used the words "brothers" and "sisters" from the Family Words and colored them with Glimmer Mist. I added the ampersand sticker from my stash:

   

 I used a paper from JilliBean Soup to mat my photo. I colored the Leafy Tree with a few different inks and added that to the left side of my photo along with an acetate leaves branch and flowers from Hip Kit:

   

 I colored the Families Are Forever chippie with Glimmer Mist and added it to my page adding craft foam on the back where needed:

 

To the right of my photo, I tucked in the tree frame from the Family ATC Frames. I colored this with the same inks as the Leafy Tree. I added a heart diecut, "Love This" and the enamel flower- all are from Hip Kit. I used a stamp for my date:

   

 I really enjoyed creating this layout! I hope I have inspired you in some way. Thanks for stopping by and I will be back soon!
