Blushing Beauty Featuring Memories by Blue Fern Studios

Hi everyone!  I'm late this month sharing my Blue Fern Studios layouts.  I've been fighting an upper respiratory infection for the past several weeks and to top it off my dog has been diagnosed with congestive heart failure.  We're both on medication and feeling better.  TodayI have a layout to share with you using the new Memories paper collection. Michelle has done it again, creating a beautiful paper collection. 

I love creating Vintage layouts.  The new Memories paper collection is perfect for such layouts.  I used the Nature's Novel paper for my background. I was drawn to the fall colors and gorgeous details on the paper.  I layered under the photo with Chronicles (side B) and Grand Sequel (side B).   I added some subtle inking to the background paper and some random paint splatters.

To the left of my photo I used the Dashwood Bouquet chipboard.  I covered it with some brown stain and  embossed with a mixture of Ginger and Garnet Imagine Ink Embossing Powders. Tucked beneath the photo is the Floral Lattice Bits chipboard embossed with a mixture of Ginger, Garnet and Magenta Embossing Powders.  To add some texture I placed some colorful micro beads randomly on the chipboard.

I embossed the small Swirled Floral corner with Ginger and Garnet Embossing Powders.  I cut the chipboard into two pieces and placed the larger piece to the right side of the photo and tucked the smaller piece down at the bottom of the photo.  I tucked in some flowers from the new Late Winter and Dark Tropics Lilies. I love the new lilies!!!

I used some brown stain on my title and added some embossing with Ginger and Garnet.  Love the aged look to the title.

Blue Fern Studios Vintage Christmas

Blue Fern Studios has been keeping 2 secrets and I am excited that I can finally share the news with you.  
First, they are bringing back their very popular Vintage Christmas Collection!  It sold out so quickly last year, 
that many of you were unable to get it.  We couldn't let that happen, so Blue Fern Studios brought it back for you.  Here's a close-up look at the elegant Vintage Christmas paper collection featuring shades of 
blue, green, red, pink, and neutral tones, all with a true vintage look.

The second secret that we have been keeping, is that designer, Michele Singh, has created a 
stunning companion collection we are calling Vintage Christmas 2.  
This 6-sheet collection has all new designs with a vintage feel.  
Combining these two collections will give you a generous 12 sheets
 of 2-sided holiday paper for all your upcoming projects.

We also have many chipboard pieces and titles, flowers, embossing powder, 
and glitter that coordinate with these collections.  Keep checking the Blue Fern Studios blog and 
Social Media pages.  We will be sharing those in the near future.

Thanks for stopping by!
