The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

Hi everyone!  I'm back to share  another layout I created for Blue Fern Studios with the new
Vintage Christmas paper collection!   My layout features Auld Lang Syne, Noel and Wonderland papers.  I primed my background with some clear gesso and did some random masking.  Then I added some Imagine Ink Cotton Candy Mist.

Love this old photo of my grandfather !  I cut apart the Holiday Frame chipboard and added a piece to the bottom of the photo that I misted with the Imagine Ink Winter Mint and Jingle Bells mist and then added some micro beads.

Tucked beneath the pink rose is another piece from the Holiday Frame chipboard.

Here I used a piece from the Damask Panel, misted with Imagine Ink Winter Mint and Jingle Bells.

Love the details in the Winter Sleigh chipboard.  I covered it with gesso and then added some Pyrite Glitter.

Blue Fern Studios has added a lot of new product to their store.  Besides the gorgerous chipboard and paper collection you can also purchase their Imagine Ink Mist, Glitter and Embossing Powders.  You can find all of the new products here in the store.

Thanks for stopping by!

Twinkle Featuring Blue Fern Studios Vintage Christmas

Hi everyone!   Sharing a layout I created for Blue Fern Studios with the new Vintage Christmas paper collection.  This is such a beautiful paper collection.    

My layout features the Deck The Halls paper.  Beautiful hues of reds and pinks! I layered underneath my photo with the Noel paper.

I actually used 4 different chipboard pieces here, Blooming Curls, Royal Border, Classic Ornament and Twinkle from the Winter titles.  I misted the royal border and classic ornament with the Imagine Ink Cotton Candy Mist and added some micro beads.  I painted my title and added some of the Petal Embossing Powder.

 When using the Blooming Curls chipboard, I cut it apart and used it in three different places on my layout.  I also cut the Classic Ornament piece in half and used in on the top of my photo.

Another piece from the Blooming Curls shown here.

I'll be back on Wednesday to share another layout featuring Blue Fern Studios Vintage Chrsitmas paper collection.   
Thanks for stopping by!

My November Projects For My Creative Scrapbook - Part 1

It is hard to believe that it is November.  We've had some unusually warm weather so far, but today there is a chill in the air.  It hit 80 yesterday and today 60.  I'm ready for the cooler weather, but not for the white stuff that it brings.  It's reveal time for My Creative Scrapbook's November Limited Edition kit, and it's a beauty featuring Prima's Royal Menagerie papers!   Let's take a look at the November kit.

Today I will am sharing 2 of the 4 layouts I created with the kit. 

Please visit the website for more information on ordering a kit: HERE.

I will share more details on my layout with you on the 16th.
Here is the November sketch:

In addition, we will also select 3 (or more) layouts to feature.
We have just a few simple rules to follow if you would like to participate in our sketch challenge:

  canvas, altered item- whatever suits your mood and style! 
We would love to see the different ways our sketch can be used.
