Big Drama . . . Blue Fern Studios

Hi everyone!  Back to share another layout created for Blue Fern Studios featuring the Memories paper collection.  I've enjoyed working with this collection.  A fav of mine! I created this layout for a dear friend of mine and it features her daughter. 
I used the Remember When paper for the background.  I added some light blue inking along with some random stamping.  Beneath the picture I've added a backing from the Calling Cards paper and placed the picture on the Mandala Frame Chipboard which I embossed with Mushroom Imagine Ink Embossing Powder. Lots of beautiful flowers from the Memories Blooms collection.

Here is a close up of the Mandala Frame.  I added some mircobeads and Sunshine Glitter for texture.

Tucked beneath the flowers is a Mini Flourish Chipboard embossed with Mushroom Embossing Powder.

I kept the title rather simple, inking it blue and adding some stamping.  Here you can see the vibrant flowers from the Memories Blooms.

Each Day Is A Story Worth Telling . . . Blue Fern Studios

Hi everyone!  The holiday season is upon us.  Thanksgiving has come and gone.  I had a lovely day with my children.  Lots of movies to watch and food to eat.   After dinner my children were off on their annual  
Pre-Black Friday shopping event.  I stayed home and did some shopping of my own on the computer.  Not much of a fan when it comes to large crowds of people.  Just as many good deals online as in the stores.  Now on to business . . . I have another layout to share created for Blue Fern Studios featuring the lovely Memories collection.
I love creating vintage layouts.  I came across the picture on Pinterest and thought it was fitting for the title.I used the Grand Sequel paper for my background.  I added some peach ink and stamping, including the Blue Fern Grungy Grid stamp.  Lots of layers under the picture using the Calling Cards paper.

The top and bottom right hand side of the picture I used the Formal Corners Chipboard.  I embossed with some brown from my stash along with Imagine Ink Ginger and Breeze Embossing Powders.  Love the aged look to the corners. Tucked under the picture to the right I used the Mina's Border Chipboard, embossed with brown and Ginger.

Gorgeous flowers from Harvest Lilies, Memories Blooms and Tranquil Blooms!

I used the same treatment on the title as I did with the Formal Corners, a mixture of brown powder from my stash and Ginger and Breeze Imagine Ink Embossing Powders.

Let It Snow - Blue Fern Studios Vintage Christmas 2

Hi everyone!   Over the weekend temperatures dropped a good 20+ degrees.  Cloudy grey skies only make me realize what is coming . . . winter and along with winter comes snow.  Not quite ready for that yet.  I do admit that I love looking at the falling snow, especially when it leaves a blanket on the ground as well as the bushes and trees,  With that image in my mind I created the following layout using the new Vintage Christmas Collection 2.
I used the Let I Snow paper for the background.   I did some light inking with pink ink as well as misting with a mint green mist and added some masking, microbeads and stamping some of which included the Forever Stamp.  I wanted to add lots of texture to the background.  My picture is framed with the Dangled Flakes Chipboard which I embossed with Imagine Ink Snow Embossing Powder and added some snow texture paste along with some chunky glass glitter.

Lots of beautiful Blue Fern Flowers from the Christmas Blooms and Soft Blossoms collections along with a piece from the Layering Stems and Mystic Branch Chipboard which I embossed with Antique Gold and added some Vintage Gold Glitter.  I added some snow texture paste to all of the flowers to mimic the branches in the picture.

Love these beautiful new flowers!!! The little placard "Let It Snow" is from the Calling Cards paper.

The Title is from Serendipity Words.  I embossed with Snow, Antique Gold and Sea Mist Embossing Powders.

Amazing Featuring Memories by Blue Fern Studios

Hi everyone!  Back with another layout today designed for Blue Fern Studios featuring the new Memories paper collection. I wanted to show how versatile the new paper collection is.   This time I created a summery, tropical layout.

I used the side B of the Tale of Treasures papers.  I did some light misting with purple and added some stamping with the Shabby Edges stamp and some random splatters of black ink. I chose not to add any additional layers under my photo, as I used the new Janie's Frame Chipboard under my photo.  I embossed it with a mixture of Iris and Lilac embossing powders and added some micro beads for texture.

Tucked beneath the new Dark Tropic Lilies are Berry Stem Chipboard pieces embossed with Ebony embossing powder and lightly coated with black micro beads.

he title is part of Brilliant, Amazing, Dazzling,  embossed with a mixture of Ebony and Lilac Embossing Powders.
