Greetings, Bramble Fox friends! I'm here today to share a travel-themed layout featuring 10 different Bramble Fox products, if you can believe it! These photos of my friend's granddaughter on her first train trip are so adorable, and I was itching to use the new Here & There collection from Simple Stories. The Wonderful title piece from the Snapshot pack, which contains 4 gorgeous cursive titles, coordinates beautifully with this collection. (Please note that since I scrap 8 x 8, the products look a bit larger on my layouts.
I usually use a white background, but I thought I'd change it up and use kraft, which I think look great with the Here & There collection. I started out by applying white acrylic paint-tinted texture paste through my favorite stencil, Fox Cut #18|Sunburst, to give my background some interesting texture and pattern.
I just love this teal title from the Snapshot pack, and it's such a versatile adjective that can be used with any topic (really all 4 titles in this pack--snapshot, wonderful, happy, stories--are extremely versatile). Above the title, I added a beautiful curvy arrow from the Arrows V4 pack, which includes 9 arrows in 3 different designs, 3 each. This arrow is a great way to highlight a favorite photo. And because I always add a heart to the layouts I give away, I stuck a pretty shimmery champagne gold heart from the Hearts Special Edition to the globe diecut.
I added a striped paper on the side and lined up the adorable photos, embellishing them with Here & There die cuts, Paper Snips and other Bramble Fox goodies. I embellished the top photo with a curly arrow from the Arrows V4 pack, a phrase from the Spring Paper Snips 021
The second picture was adorned with some flower die cuts, another phrase from Travel Paper Snips 005 and a thumbs-up Woodie from the Vintage Hands pack which includes 10 gorgeously etched hands and arrows in a variety of styles.
The bottom two photos got more phrases, from Cruise Paper Snips 007 and Summer Paper Snips 004, along with a few more diecuts, a brad, and a fabulous pointing finger Woodie from the Vintage Hands Woodies pack. I'm so thrilled that Bramble Fox is doing these wooden pieces--they ad such an interesting texture to my pages and are a nice contrast with the shiny elements.
I mentioned in another blog post that before I call a layout done, I let it sit overnight and give it one more glance to see if there's anything I can add. On this layout, I added some metal bits to the front of the train and enamel dots in the flower centers, as well as the ticket in the empty space between the second and fourth photos. Those little additions made such a big difference!
So there you have it--a small 8 x 8 layout using 10 beautiful Bramble Fox products. I just love how the products all work together and also coordinate so well with just about any scrapbook collection.
I can't wait to see how you use these products. Please tag us on Instagram and be sure to share your creations in the Bramble Fox Friends Facebook group.
Until next time...have fun scrapping!
