Fangtastic! | Bramble Fox

I created this fun Halloween layout using some awesome Bramble Fox Perspextives called Halloween Trinkets


I love the translucent Perspextives, and I'm totally in love with the etched pieces Bramble Fox has been creating lately! I primarily used Bella Blvd's Sweet & Spooky collection from a past Halloween.  


After I designed my basic composition, I decided I needed something in the background, so I swiped a Tim Holtz Distress Ink pad across my paper. I love how it looks on the textured Bazzill. I love the sparkly black letter stickers I found in my stash. I cut a witches hat out of one of the Sweet & Spooky papers and perched it on the g.


I found these super old vampire and ghost Do-Jiggies and decided they'd be perfect for this page. The speech bubbles were cut out of a Pebbles Spooky Boo paper. I lifted them up with pop dots. Those cool wonky stars are from Bramble Fox--from the Fox Stamps #2, which are a Christmas set, but many of the stamps in that set are very versatile and perfect for other themes.



How awesome are these purple witch's boots? So whimsical and fun!

Stampede! | CSI Cold Case No. 335

I never had a chance to post this, but I had so much fun making it, I wanted to make sure it landed on my blog. It was for CSI's October Cold Case. I love our stash-busting Cold Cases because it gives me the perfect excuse to use some really old stuff. Here's what I made.


Here are the Case File and clues:


Clues I used: I found some older papers with the colors, used older wood elements (the paper), create a scene on your page, Magic #4. And I was obviously inspired by the chickens in the Scene.


My friend has 40-some chickens and her daughter opens the chicken house in the morning and and the chickens apparently come running out in a bunch, and she caught this fun photo of her daughter trying to escape the stampede. 


I looked through my stash and I had a chicken paper but the chickens just wouldn't do the trick for the page I had in mind so I went online in search of some chicken images and found these fun ones that I printed out, fussy cut and popped up on pop dots. I made my own chicken coop out of some really old Cosmo Cricket woodgrain paper.



I must confess I didn't think up the "poultry in motion" title. As I was looking for the chickens online I came across that fun pun and knew it had to be my sub-title.  I used a mix of really old letters from my stash, including my never-ending supply of Heidi Swapp chipboard letters. That cloud paper is one I almost threw out a few years ago, but I'm such a packrat that I put it in my cloud paper folder, and I think the clouds go with the rustic feel of my layout. The buttons were my magic number 4 clue. I thought those little chicks were so cute and decided I'd add them to the title.


The word stickers are old Cosmo Cricket stickers that have a country theme and were perfect for this page. 


This challenge is over, but we have 3 new challenges for November. Come play with us!
