Hi everyone!  Today I have a layout to share that I created for Blue Fern Studios using the
 Autumn Anthology Collection.

Lots of paper layering and  fussy cutting on this layout, showcasing a picture of my children from years ago.  I used several papers from the Autumn Anthology collection:  Gazebo, Newsworthy, LeBallon, Cottage and Calling Cards.

Here are a few closeup of the chipboard I used:
Ironwork Edges sprayed with Imagine Ink Mist Sky and dabbed with some dark blue ink.

Willow Wild Flower sprayed with Imagine Ink Mist Persimmon and dabbed with some dark brown ink.

Layering Stems sprayed with Imagine Ink Mist Persimmon.

And for my title Yesterday from Today, Tomorrow, Yesterday sprayed with Imagine Ink Mist Sky and dabbed with some dark blue ink.

 You still have plenty of time to join us this month using the October sketch.  For more inspiration and a look at the October sketch please click here

Thanks for stopping by!

A Layout Featuring Blue Fern Studios Vintage Christmas

Hi everyone!  Today I have a layout to share with you created with the new paper collection Vintage Christmas by Blue Fern Studios  along with some of their new Imagine Ink products; mists, embossing powder and glitter.
I love the paper collection!  Gorgeous colors and details!  For my background I used the Wonderland paper and did some fussy cutting with the Magical paper and used the Calling Cards for some layers behind my picture, which by the way is me as a child.  I primed the background paper with some clear gesso and added some stenciling.  Once the stenciling was dry I added some of the Imagine Ink Mica Color Mist in Cotton Candy along with some pink microbeads from my stash and some Imagine Ink Glitter in Pyrite.

I primed the chipboard words Sparkle and Merry with some white gesso.  After it dried I sprayed it with the new Imagaine Ink Mist Jingle Bells and added some Pyrite Glitter.

Tucked beneath my flower cluster I used the chipboard piece Dresden Corsage which I primed with white gesso, sprayed with the Imagine Ink Mist Cotton Candy and applied some of the new Petal embossing powder.  I then embossed a layering stem chipboard piece with the new Lucky embossing powder.

So excited for all of the new products and can't wait to share more projects with you.  You can find all of the new products here in the store.

Thanks for stopping by!

My October Projects For My Creative Scrapbook

It is hard to believe that it is October.  September was here and gone in a blink.  For the past couple of months I have been guest designing for My Creative Scrapbook with Pam's lovely Limited Edition Kits.  I'm excited to announce that I've been asked to join their design team and will be sharing layouts with you each month with the Limited Edition Kit.   The reveal for the new kits went live yesterday and you can view all of the kits here. I've got four layouts to share with you, but  first let's take a look at the October kit, featuring Autumn Anthology papers from Blue Ferns Studios and lots of Prima beautiful flowers.

And here are my layouts . . .
