Bramble Fox

Hey. I know it's been ages. I've been busy with a very exciting Project. Back in April I launched a brand new product line and shop - Bramble Fox. I am so excited! It's been a lot of hard work but so rewarding!

We are making fabulous flair embellishments and Perspextives - beautiful Perspex designs in a gorgeous array of colours!

Over the past 3 months I have built the store and acquired a small fabulous design team! I'll get around to launching the team officially but for now, I'll share one of my own creations that I made for the UK Scrap Addicts challenge.

The Challenge was to use a large photo - 6x8" or larger. This makes creating a layout a real doddle!

Smile is sold with 2 little cameras - totally cute. I just glued them to my page with some Glossy Accents.

There is also a range of flair available - designed to co-ordinate with lots of themes and collections.

There is still chance to enter the challenge over at UK Scrap Addicts. Bramble Fox is sponsoring the prize - you can win a whole stack of goodies worth £35.

if you don't have time to enter, then why not pop along to Bramble Fox and take advantage of the site-wide discount.

Thanks for stopping by - I will be back more frequently to share some of the fab inspiration from the past few months!

Just be You | Stuck?! Sketches

Time for another fabulous Stuck?! Sketch from Laura.
 This was a great versatile sketch - just up my street!

I had some papers from Scrap Stars. I love the fun collection from Echo Park - Just be You. It has fab colours and great images (absolutely perfect for our Summer holiday last year).

I added some stamping to the background using a Hero Arts background stamp. I had it stamped out perfectly when I dropped the ink pad on the page :( I had to pull everything off and start again! Oh well.I

I layered various stickers and embellishments. Flair - Bramble Fox - Tumblr Inspired #2

OMG - how cute is the little kawaii cabochon?!

Anyway thanks for popping in.

New Scrap Friends | Digital Press

I recently taught at Scrap Stars retreat - it was so lovely to meet new people who have the same interests!

The Real Moms kit from Digital Press is perfect mist of colours and images.

I love the foliage and flowers in the kit - perfect for a little fussy cutting.

I added a bit of detail on the right hand side to balance things up.
The flair and Perspextives are both Bramble Fox. I also stamped tiny confetti dots below the embellishments in gold. It looks fab in real life.

The photo is from the Scrap Stars retreat where I recently taught two classes. The girls there were so lovely - it was great to have a photo of almost everyone (Caroline took the photo).

Thanks for stopping by. I hope that this has inspired you to think about digital kits in real life scrapbooks!

NSD 2017 | Bramble Fox

Hey - belated National Scrapbooking Day!

I hope you managed to play this weekend.

I did take part in one challenge today hosted by Hey Little Magpie.

I like these kind of sketches - they're so easy to use. I pretty much stuck to the original plan.
I added pretty details from Bramble Fox. I just love the Perspextives :)

I added various papers and embellishments from my stash. I tend to accumulate lovely things which are too nice to use!

We took Mack for a walk and the blossom was out in full bloom. This cherry blossom tree was huge! The floor was carpeted with pink blossom.

I used Distress Oxide inks to make the background. I'm so in love with these inks. They are truly awesome.

I love how this turned out - it was pretty fast for me! Started and finished in a day - world record!

I hope you had a great weekend. If you fancy a bit of shopping there is 20% off at Bramble Fox until 14th May.

Thanks for popping by.

#YOLO | Feed Your Craft

I have been a busy bee over the past few weeks with lots of work commitments.
One commitment I had was teach a class at Scrap Stars. You notice that I didn't call it work! Scrapbook classes are just the best! I will post again later this week with some piccies of my clases, but for now,

Firstly, I created a layout of some photos taken at the weekend. I met Tracee Provis who I 'know' from Scrap 365.  She is such a blast! We had a real giggle on Saturday night trying to keep up with the challenges. We were both totally lame!

Caroline Scattergood who runs Scrap Stars came round to take some crazy photos. They went perfectly with papers from Simple Stories.

I used the totally gorgeous The Story mini flair from Feed Your Craft.

It was great to make a new scrappy friend or two!

Be back later this week with some pics of my classes. Thanks for popping by.
