Sweet as Can Bee | Debbi Tehrani

Hey, friends! Today I'm sharing a layout featuring the March Fox Box. The bees and the "Sweet as Can Bee" title Perspextive are just perfect for this sweet photo of my friend and her daughter. I also used the Scrapbook Idea Book Volume 1, some pom-pom trim, a stencil, a die, and some Paper Snips. Read on to find out which products I used. (Please note that I scrap 8 x 8, so the products will look a bit larger on my pages.)

I love the new Little Book of Scrapbook Ideas Volume 1, which is chock full of awesome, versatile sketches, as well as beautiful layouts from our incredible design team. I used Sketch 3 for this layout, substituting hexagons for the circles.

The Full Bloom collection from Simple Stories was a perfect choice for this page, as the colors complement the photo as well as the bright yellow Perspextives, and some of the patterns have a bee motif. How awesome is the title Perspextive with that beautiful cursive font and the little bee? This piece coordinates with the bee Perspextives on my page, which are part of the Fox Box but can also be purchased in a pack called Bees V2, which also come with black etched bees.

I started out by finding a free hexagon cut file and cut out a bunch of hexagons on various patterned papers. I then cut some more hexagons on a green cardstock to add a mat to each hexagon to give each of them some definition. After figuring out where I wanted everything to go, I used Some pink distress ink and a blending brush to create a background using the Fox Cut Stencil #56 | Honeycomb Bees. I used a fine-tip pen to add a few outlines on the honeycomb. The word strip came from Paper Snips 021 | Spring.


Since I have a lot going on on this small page with lots of patterns, I outlined each of the hexagons, as well as the Full Bloom die cuts to add more definition. I mounted all of the hexagons and some of the die cuts with foam adhesive for more dimension.

I added a border to the top and bottom of my layout, using a strip of one of the patterns and some Sunshine Yellow Pom Pom Trim. My top border went a little wonky when I ran it under the sewing machine (next time, I think I'll hand-stitch it on or just use glue). I decided to conceal part of the wonky border with that die cut with the hat and hanging items. I love the whimsy and texture of this trim and I'm so excited to see it in the shop! I added another bee up near that die cut from the Bees V2. The etched detailing on these bees is just extraordinary!

I added an additional layer to the bottom border by gluing some ric-rac above the pom-pom trim made with Fox Die #13 | Pocket Zip.

So there you have it--a layout, created with 7 different Bramble Fox products! Please show us what you make with these beautiful products by tagging us on Instagram and sharing your creations in the Bramble Fox Friends Facebook group.


Until next time, have fun scrapping!
