Let's Go Enjoy the Journey | Bramble Fox

I'm up on the Bramble Fox blog today with a layout using some of their beautiful Perspextives. The August Fox Box was packed with lots of awesome pieces perfect for documenting a journey, and since I haven't done a whole lot of traveling lately, I decided to use them to document a breakthrough in my weight-loss journey.

The yellow of these Perspextives is such a pretty color, and I thought it went really well with the new Pinkfresh Studio collection called Office Hours, and it turned out that a lot of the elements were perfect for telling my story.

The "Enjoy" word comes in a pack with another word, "Journey," so you can use them together for a title or use them separately as I have done. I added some sweet yellow hearts to go with the "Let's Go!" title. There are several different heart packs, and I've bought them all so that I can use them to add extra dimension here and there. Hearts Galore is a nice set with lots of different colors. Fancy Hearts has different colors in styles. The Hello set has not only a handful of sweet hearts but also a title piece.

I fussy-cut some elements out of the Pinkfresh Studio paper and made a little banner with some loopy black twine. I thought the black added some nice contrast and also brought the eye back to my photo where I'm wearing black and also to my journaling, which was printed with black. I added a black die cut and some black matte enamel dots for a finishing touch.

I hope I've given you an additional idea about how to use travel-themed titles and elements--there are all sorts of journeys we're on in this life!

Spend | CSI Case File No. 292

Our mid-month reveal is live at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration. Here's the page I created for Case File No. 292:

Here are the Case File and clues that inspired my page:

I used the traditional clues and also drew just about everything on my layout from my old stash. Evidence clues: stripes, flowers, leaves, frames, ribbon, people embellishments, fabric, mesh, metal, circles, stencils, stamps, photo corners, bling.

Here are some details. I love these old chipboard letters by Scenic Route but they're huge for my 8 x 8 pages, so I decided to go with a short title so I could use them. I added some little wood veneer people icons to my title. All the papers on my layout are really old because I save every little scrap and have them organized by color.

I found that "treat yo'self" and "over budget" stamps in my stash. They're from a MAMBI planner set. I don't make planners, but I thought a lot of the phrases would be good for scrapbook layouts.

I have so dang many photo corners and always forget to use them, so I'm glad they were a clue. The "It followed me home" is a fabric tab by 7Gypsies, and i used it for the fabric clue.

I hope you'll come play along. We've got loads of generous sponsors offering prizes this month.
