Hiking Layout Using a Scrapbook Sketch | Debbi Tehrani

Sketches are such a wonderful starting point when you're staring at a blank page and stuck for ideas. I used an awesome sketch shared in the Bramble Fox Friends Facebook Group for this layout. The May Fox Box, plus several dies, stencils, and Perspextives, give my layout lots of stand-out details.

Here's a look at the sketch I used. I used the basic composition of the sketch, but as often happens for me, my layout ends up looking different from the sketch because I scrap 8 x 8, so the products look larger and I have less space to work with.

By the way, if you love working with sketches like I do, make sure you grab Bramble Fox's Scrapbook Ideas Volume 1 and Scrapbook Ideas Volume 2. These little books are not only chock-full of sketches, but they also include tons of gorgeous inspiration from the design team for each of the sketches.

I used papers and die cuts from the Great Escape collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio. I edged the plaid paper with my new favorite metal dies - Fox Dies #20 | Film Strip Borders and Fox Dies #21 | Office Borders. You'll want to get both of these die sets, and you're in luck, because you can buy the Border Set which contains both sets and save money!

I used some tree Pespextives from my stash to add dimension to the flat die cuts. These are no longer in stock, but the Wander Elements has some great trees with a similar style and color. To add another layer, I added some sun rays using one of my all-time favorite stencils, Fox Cut Stencil #17 | Sunburst.

I added the sunburst stencil behind the mountain die-cut too. Like in the sketch, I popped some tags and a ticket behind the paper at the top. I made these tags with some Bramble Fox dies, which aren't in stock (be sure to grab them, should they ever be restocked), but you could easily use the awesome Tag Templates, which have 5 different tag shapes. To add some whimsy and a different texture, I found some bear puffy stickers to tuck into a couple of spots on my page.

Those tree die cuts seemed to be just floating in the air, so I created a little dirt hiking trail at the bottom of my layout using the Fox Cut Stencil #24 | Snow Scene and some brown ink. Look closely at your products and imagine different possibilities. You don't always have to use products for their intended use. I added some little mushrooms from the puffy sticker pack that the bears came from.

As I was gluing down my title, from the Fox Box, I decided to add a sunburst using the Fox Cut Stencil #17 behind the trees inside the O. How gorgeous is that matte navy blue finish?

I positioned the "hiking" part of my title to hike along the curve of the ground scene I created and tucked in another puffy bear.

I found some chevron arrows that matched the vivid green title from the Fox Box.

Finally, I had to add a heart because I always add hearts to the layouts I give away. I added a tiny white heart from the Monochrome Hearts pack to one of the trees.

I hope I've given you some ideas for using the May Fox Box. This kit has something for all sorts of spring and outdoor happenings. The kit ships on May 4, so be sure to subscribe before then!
