Mr. Fox Fun!

Monday, June 30, 2014

Hope everyone is having a fun summer (or whatever season it is in your neck of the woods)....
I know here in sunny Phoenix Arizona, we are having multiple days over 110 degrees and it's consistently over 100 degrees  - yes even at 9pm at night, it is sometimes still over 100 degrees!!

So, I find myself playing a lot in my air-conditioned least the heat outdoors is a great excuse to stay inside and play, right?

So today I wanted to share a couple layouts that I created using the new KaiserCraft Mister Fox Collection and Die-Cuts that recently arrived in the Frosted Designs store.

Orange is one of my favorite colors to scrap with my son, so this collection is right up my alley!!

First, I used some random papers and an old piece of a transparency from my stash that was in my "scrap bin".  I personally think the viewfinder fad is a little strange (even though I do still have my old viewfinder), but I love circle elements, so I love how that circular die-cut looks here.

Another note, there is one sheet of dark orange in this collection that has a floral-y print to it...(not what I would use on my "boy" pages) --- so notice on this first layout, I used it as a thin mat behind the photo and the pattern is not noticeable, only the color.

On this second layout, I again used the orange floral paper, just a thin strip down the center, again for color, but making the pattern unnoticeable.  I used large blocks of 2 of my favorite papers in the collection for each half of the design, and again used viewfinder circular die-cuts and an "Amazing" die-cut (popped-up) for my title element and a couple stickers to finish it off.

On this one, I used a background pattern and added some vertical stripes to accentuate the stripes on the hamburger boxes using paint and the Heidi Swapp Stencil from the "pattern" set.  A few of the die-cuts and stickers to document Ohio tradition.  

 On this last one, I used a full sheet from the collection for my background along with some smaller prints behind the photo.  I  mixed Modeling paste with some Lindy's Magicals and used a large stencil that's design supported my theme. 
A few stickers and die-cuts from the collection along with some jute from my stash to finish off this simple layout.
