Today | Bramble Fox NSD DT Scraplift Party

Happy National Scrapbooking Day! Over at Bramble Fox Friends, we've got a super-fun party going on to celebrate. Each of the design team members chose another DT member's page to scraplift, and we're challenging you to scraplift one or more of those layouts. There are prizes to be won and discounts all weekend at the Bramble Fox shop. Here's my creation:

I lifted Emilie Chamel's amazing layout. I fell in love with her layout the minute I saw it and wished I could scraplift it, and to my surprise and delight, Morag came up with the Scraplift Party idea! I just adore the cascading design spilling out of that torn paper, and the way she used those chevrons was so interesting and creative. I love her monochromatic page and I almost went monochromatic too, but I didn't want to copy too much.

Here are some details of my page. I looked through my papers in search of colors that would go with these beautiful pictures of my friend's daughter and came across a pad of flowers to cut out from Mintay Papers. Mintay Papers is a Polish company that I heard about from one of my scrapbooking idols, Emma Trout. The reddish-orange flowers matched pretty well, and I was originally thinking about trying to do a monochromatic layout like Emilie did, but then I noticed sh had purple in her shirt and noticed all the purple blossoms in the pad. I decided to add the yellow to the palette. I searched through my patterned papers and found a pretty good match for the top piece of paper--It's a super old paper by a now-defunct company called Scrapbook Boutique, I think.

 I found a beautiful title piece by Bramble Fox. I just love that script font!

I don't have the Paige Evans chevron paper that Emilie used, though I have it on order, but I found a stamp in my stash that was the same shape and used different colors of Tim Holtz Distress Inks to replicate the ones Emilie used.

Here's another detail shot. I added in some word stickers from my stash, a heart Perspextive, some rhinestone brads and some Nuvo Drops. It was hard fitting everything on my 8 x 8 page, but I managed to get everything on that I wanted to use.

I hope you'll come play along. Submit your creations in our Bramble Fox Friends Facebook Group for a chance to win some prizes. Also, there's lots of brand-new stuff in the shop get a 15% discount this weekend!
