3 New Blue Fern Studios' Layouts for July!

Hi everyone!  It's hard to believe that it is July 13 already!  As I write this post, we are in the middle of a heat wave here in Pennsylvania - we have an extremely high heat/humidity advisory for the next few days, so it's a perfect time to stay indoors scrap!! 

Today I am excited to share my July Blue Fern Studios layouts with you . . .

Layout #1: One Cute Chick

I went straight to the beautiful "Tattered Walls" collection.  This time, I used "The Carolina Room" as the basis for my page.  I utilized both sides:

It's such gorgeous paper, I knew exactly which photos I wanted to use for my layout.  These sweet pictures of Anne were taken on Mother's Day, 2009.  Every time I see that smile, my heart melts!

Back to scrapping . . . I really enjoyed using the "One Cute Chick" chipboard and embossed it with "Pixie Dust" embossing powder.  

It's a DREAM to work with!!!  I also used one of the birds from the "A Spring Day" collection and embossed it with the sparkly "Goldenrod" embossing powder!


Here are is a close up:

Flowers: Garden Blooms, Moody Florals
Seedlings: Gold Nugget
Glitter: Solar Flare, Gilded Rose
Lace: Ivory Braided Trim, Lace 1, Lace 6, Lace 10

Layout #2:  Blessed

I already had the photo of my daughters, Katie and Anne, in mind when I started making this page.  I took this photo for our Christmas card in November of 2013.  Once again, I thought the tattered walls collection was perfect for this treasured picture.  

I used "The Garage."

Isn't it cool that all of these papers are named after a room?  I love that!

I also used "The Powder Room" to back my photo and to punch out my snowflakes:


I embossed the "Blessed" and "Christmas Tree" chipboard pieces with the "Ivory" embossing powder.  I have to mention that I have never found better embossing powder than that made by Blue Fern Studios!  The Ivory EP is wonderful and no others match up to it!  (And because it's a neutral, I use it so often that I need to order more soon.)

Here are some close ups of my layout:


And I really had fun decorating my chipboard Christmas tree with pieces from Lace 9C:

Embossing Powder: Ivory
Flowers: Courtship Roses, Harvest Lilies, Late Winter Lilies

Layout #3:  Love This Moment

I totally enjoyed making this last page using a photo of the group of children that were adopted with Anne when we got together at Pearl S Buck for an adoption picnic.  This "travel group" photo was taken in the summer of 2009!

I love the Homespun collection and that it was perfect for this photo.  I used the flip side of "Hospitality:"


I altered these chipboard pieces:  

"Opulence:"

"Love This Moment:"


This time I embossed both pieces with "Taupe" embossing powder, then to change things up a bit, I distressed each piece.  

Here are some close ups:


I also enjoyed embossed directly on my page using the "Christmas Collage" stamp set and "Pearl" embossing powder.

  5. Wow I absolutely love all 3 of your latest layouts!
    In "Love This Moment" - the distressed look is great, as is the photo and excellent poem. "Blessed Merry Christmas" has the most beautiful tree & snowflakes & flowers - But I esp love the photo and the quote. "One Cute Chick" is adorable! Such a magnificent background and colors. They go so well with the best and cutest pictures ever! And the Beatles quote is a phenomenal way to round it out. Truly exquisite work! Keep posting, I can't wait to see what is next...
