Guest Designing For My Creative Scrapbook

I'm excited to announce that I'm guest designing the next few months for My Creative Scrapbook, using their beautiful Limited Edition kits!  Thanks Pam for inviting me.  I really enjoyed working with the lovely August LE kit filled with Prima's Debutante paper, chipboard and flowers.  I created 3 layouts and one tag.

The romantic Prima papers and flowers along with Blue Fern Studio's chipboard were perfect for this layout featuring a picture of my mom.

Also included in the LE edition kit were a couple of papers from Blue Fern Studios Love Story collection.  Can you guess who that is in the picture?!?

I found the vintage photo on Pinterest.  Lots of layering and fussy cutting!

This is my first time using one of Julie Nutting's doll stamps.  It was a lot of fun!

The Limited Edition kit can be found here and my blog post at My Creative Scrapbook here.

Two Layouts Featuring Blue Fern Studios Frolic Collection

Hi eveyone!  Hope all of you are enjoying the summer.  Hard to believe that August is half over.  My how time flies! Today I have 2 layouts to share that I created with the new Frolic collection by Blue Fern Studios, along with their gorgeous chipboard and stamps.  I love the colors in this collection, perfect for your summer photos.  

My first layout highlights the Amoroso, Dans le Jardin, Friendship and Calling Cards paper.  I thought they were perfect for a somewhat masculine layout.
Lots of layering behind my photo and some fussy cutting.

I used the Collage Border and Bits of Honey chipboard, both of which I primed with some gesso and then colored with water colors.

My flower cluster on the right hand side along with some of the Bits Of Honey chipboard.

As you can see I again used some of the Bits Of Honey chipboard and the word Noted from the Arrow Words which I colored with some water color paints.

My next layout is a feminine one.  Love the pretty color combinations in the background paper, Mercantile. I also used the Friendship and Calling Cards papers. 
 Lots of subtle stamping with the Forever and Vintage stamps.

From the Arrow Words I used Love This, which I covered with gesso and applied some gelatos.   I also used the Gatsby Collage which I also covered with gesso and then added some gelatos and micro beads

Tucked beneath my cluster of flowers in the new Floral Lattice Bits chipboard.

Here I used more of the Floral Lattice Bits and added some micro beads.

 Don't forget that you still have time to enter our August Sketch Challenge.  You can find all of the details here.

Prima's July Product Pick

Hi everyone!  Hope all of you are enjoying the weekend.  It's a hot and humid one here in Maryland.  
Temps today nearing 100 degrees.  A perfect day to stay inside!  I've been in the process of cleaning 
out my scrapbooking supplies (seems like a never ending thing) and came across some Prima papers from their Lyric collection.  Love the vintage touch to the papers and decided to use them on a layout featuring a picture of my mom and her little brother.  A favorite picture of mine, as I have used it several times on layouts.  This is my first time creating using Prima's Product Pick.  Loved the colors!  Here is my layout, filled with lots and lots of Prima products.

and what I drew my inspiration from, Prima's July Product Pick:
Love the flowers, colors, the straws and the orange chair!

Thanks for stopping by!

Layouts Featuring Blue Fern Studios Paisley & Vine Collection

Hi everyone! Today I have two layouts to share with you that I created using the new  Paisley & Vine Collection by Blue Fern Studios along with their gorgeous chipboard.

On  my first layout I used Bohemian, Nature, Vineland and Playing Card papers and added some masking, misting, paints and microbeads.

The Circle Flourish Chipboard surrounds my photo.  I first applied some gesso to the chipboard and then added some misting, water colors, gelatos and microbreads.

I painted a piece of the Quartre Foil chipboard with some yellow and blue paints and added more microbeads and tucked the chipboard behind the flowers.

Here I've used a piece from the Layering Stems chipboard, which I painted with watercolors and gelatos and added more of the blue microbeads.

I used the Whimsy paper as my background, which I lightly
applied light pink ink around the outside of the paper.  I also used Playing Card and Passion papers from the collection.

I inked the chipboard Perfect with some dark red ink and placed pieces of the Framington Medley chipboard, which I embossed with white powder and added some blue ink around my picture.

A gorgeous Royal Monarch chipboard butterfly embossed white and placed within a flower cluster is the perfect touch!

I hope you enjoy my layouts!

Thanks for stopping by!

New Blue Fern Studios Collection - Frolic

With summer upon us and lots of sunshine and colorful flowers, it's a 
perfect day to  reveal Blue Fern Studios new paper collection, Frolic.  
Frolic, as a verb, is to play and move about cheerfully, excitedly, or energetically, and that is just what we want you to think of when you see this collection.  The colors and designs are certainly cheerful and energetic.  How perfect for so many projects!  Here are the individual papers from the collection so you can see what we mean. 
 Take your time as you scroll through this beautiful 10-page collection. 

But we have more good news - we didn't stop with just the paper.  
We have chipboard pieces designed to coordinate with the Frolic Collection!

Have you had a chance to try our very popular stamp sets?  These 4x6 sets are of the highest quality 
clear photo-polymer.  We have designed two stamp sets to coordinate with our Frolic Collection.

Garden Frolic

We hope you are as excited as we are about Frolic!
