June Tattered Walls Pages made for Blue Fern Studios!

Hi everyone!  I am so happy to be here today sharing three new scrapbook pages that I made using the gorgeous "Tattered Walls" paper collection for the Blue Fern Studios design team:


To me, this is a "must-have" collection for any scrapbooker.  It is so versatile  and each and every page is absolutely beautiful.  So without further ado, here are my pages . . .

Layout #1:  Family

I decided to use the cool "Powder Room" paper:


And one of my favorite parts of making this page was using the "Stone Cottage" chipboard piece.


  I decorated it with Taupe and Blue Sky embossing powder:

And I did the same with the Chipboard "Family" word, too.

Here's a different view:

I especially liked scrapping a treasured family photo of the four of us, using this beautiful collection. 

Blue Fern Product List:
Paper: Tattered Walls "the Powder Room"
Chipboard: Stone Cottage, "Family"
Embossing Powder: Taupe, Sky Blue
Flowers: Spring Blooms, Wanderlust Lilies
Seedlings: Aquamarine
Lace:  Lace 1, Lace 2, Lace 10
Ephemera:  Tattered Walls


Layout #2:  Sweet Memories

I came across some old photos from my wedding day, and just had to scrap this one!

I used the stunning "Maid's Rom" paper:


Here is a close up so that you can get a better look:

The "Glam Frame" and "Memories" chipboard pieces worked very well here.  And the taupe embossing powder is a dream to work with!!

Also, I stamped the musical notes and embossed directly on my page using the 
"For the Birds" stamp set:

Layout #3:  Our Story

I used the other side of "the Maid's Room" paper because it resembled a book and went perfectly with my "Our Story" theme, which is based on my daughter's love for each other.

The centerpiece of this page is this beautiful "Fancy Love" stamp set:

I embossed directly on my page, and stamped over the embossing in black to bring out "Love One Another" better:

Be You!

Hi everyone!

It's June 7th and time to start a new Challenge YOUrself challenge:

I'd like to share the page I made for this challenge.  It was so much fun for me to work on and had a lot meaning for me, too.  

I decided to use an Echo Park "Magical Adventure" paper pack that I had in my stash:

The paper and stickers seem to be more about Disney, but I thought was fitting for my page design and photos.  

Here it is:

The first photo was taken when I was 3 years old, and the second one taken about 4 years ago.  

Here are some close-ups:


And a different view:

I hope you get a chance to check out Challenge YOUrself this month!  I know you will enjoy it if you do.

And thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

May layouts for Blue Fern Studios!

Hi Everyone!  Welcome May!

I am excited to be sharing the layouts that I created for Blue Fern Studios for May! ♥  


I used the "Homespun" collection to create my first page.  Isn't it gorgeous?  I love the flip side of "Tea Time"(as seen below) and used it as the basis for my first layout:


 My First Layout:  Home Sweet Home



I chose to use our family's Christmas card photo from 2016!  

Here is a close up:



And a different view:


I especially enjoyed embellishing the raw chipboard floral/flourish wreath and using Homespun Printed Chipboard on this page.  I mixed things up by adding some Remnants Blooms here, too.

Blue Fern Product List:
Paper: Homespun: "Tea Time," "Homestead," and "Homegrown"
Chipboard: Homespun Printed Chipboard Shapes, Floral/Flourish Wreath
Embossing Powder: Ivory, Ivory Green, Garnet, Pure Red
Stamp: Arcadia Texture, Coarse Fabrics
Glitter: Rose Gold, Army Dust
Flowers: Remnants Blooms
Seedlings: Twig
Lace:  Lace 6




My last two pages were made with the beautiful "In the Mood" collection:



I think this collection is perfect for romantic, dreamy, and happy photos as you will see:


My Second Layout:  Spring Fever



I picked a photo that I took of Anne way back in 2010 when she was enjoying a Spring day!

Here is a close up to get a better look at the details:


And a different view:


This layout was so much fun and very easy to make!  I LOVED using the gorgeous "In the Mood" collection.

This page was so much fun to make!  I especially loved embellishing the beautiful chipboard "Castle of Dreams."  I found it perfect to go along with a photo of me from back in 2002.  I actually met Cinderella at Disney World and have a funny story to tell about that experience.  I told my story in hidden journaling on the back of my page.

Here is a close up of the castle:


And a different view:


And I have to mention that both of my daughters love this page because of the gold chipboard castle!!!
