Let's Go to the Beach | Bramble Fox

I had so much fun with the July Fox Box from Bramble Fox. Here's my first page for the month:

As I was looking for papers to start with, this sunburst-looking paper from Fancy Pants Cherry on Top collection caught my eye. I wanted to do some splashes with watercolors, but I was afraid of messing up the paper, so I decided to hand-stitch instead. How totally awesome is that Let's Go title? I love that it's got that aqua outline around it! And could those heart-shaped sunglasses from the Sunnies pack be any cuter?

As I was looking for some summery stuff in my stash, I wound up using sticker and papers from a couple of different older Simple Stories collections. I found a dolphin charm in my stash. I always add hearts to the pages I give away, and some of the hearts in my Bramble Fox stash matched the color in the title, so I popped on on the sandcastle sticker.

I had a heart outline in the same color. I love these flowers I got from Michael's a while ago. They look tropical to me, and were perfect to add to this summery page.

I found a few more odds and ends to add to this cluster, including a flamingo puffy sticker and cheerful stripey brad that had most of the colors on my page. I cut the pineapple and flip-flops out of patterned paper.

I highly recommend the Fox Box subscription. You get three packs of Perspextives, which gives you a nice assortment of pieces to work with, as well as an exclusive design only available in the Fox Box. Plus you get a discount on everything in the shop. Here's a look at the July Fox Box:

Take Note| CSI: Case File No. 324

Our July challenges are live at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration. Here's the layout I made for our first July Case File:

Here are the Case File and clues for this challenge:

I had some Bramble Fox Perspextives sitting on my desk, and the colors were perfect for this Case File, so I used that as my starting point. I used Cocoa Vanilla's beautiful Unforgettable collection, which has the same basic palette as the Case File, and of course all the lovely florals, which met the flower clue. I added paint (which is a clue) to the texture paste, and used a Bramble Fox stencil to put the hearts on the background, and I also sprinkled (another clue) some pink and magenta watercolors on the background. I added the brad to meet the metal clue.

My background paper is old BasicGrey, which is a clue. The title is also from Bramble Fox, and I put bow from the Cocoa Vanilla collection on it. Enamel dots are a clue too. Another clue is a pattern with multicolored dots, and I found a paper in this collection to meet this clue.

How cute is that little Bramble Fox typewriter from the Retro Comms set? I snagged the journaling from my friend's Facebook page and loaded it into the typewriter. I found another brad to add to tis cluster balance out the brads and circles in the top left.

I hope you'll come play with this challenge. It's always so fun to see what everyone makes, and be sure to add your layout to our Facebook group so you can be eligible from a prize or gift certificate from our seven sponsors this month:
