Blue Fern Studios February Inspirations

Hello Blue Fern Studios Fans! I am so excited to share three new projects with you! This month, I had the chance to work with the soon to come Chesterville paper collection. This collection is absolutely gorgeous, it's a must have, trust me! First, let me show you my first layout I did with the Attic Charm collection.

'Incroyable'

I used the paper Attic Charm 'Sachet' to start this project. First, I made a textured background with a stencil and modeling paste. I used pink and yellow inks to add colors on my background. I also add details with the 'Vintage Phrase' and 'Essential Textures' stamps and black ink.


Then, I embossed my chipboard 'Leaf Swirled Frame' with BFS Imagine Ink Embossing Powder 'Cotton Candy'.  I used pieces of Attic Charm 'Calling Cards' paper to put under my picture. 


I add a lot of Blue Fern Studios flowers around my picture.

Blue Fern Studios- Mon premier post!!!!

Hello Blue Fern Studios fans! I am thrilled to write my first blog post as Blue Fern Studios Design Team member! It's a dream come true for me!

Let me first introduce me. I am 39 years old and I live in Quebec City, Canada. I'm a 4th grade teacher and a mother of two children of 6 and 4 years old that are the main stars of my layouts. I do scrapbooking for 11 years now and this is my passion. I love doing romantic layouts full of flowers. I also love mixed media.

Here's my first projects as Blue Fern Studios Design Team member.

'Follow Your Heart'


For this first layout, I made a step-by-step video tutorial that you can watch below. I used the paper Heartland XOXO to start this project. First, I made a textured background with a stencil and modeling paste. I used yellow and caramel inks to add colors. I also add details with the 'Making Plans' and 'Vintage Phrase' stamps.


Then, I embossed my chipboards 'Crackle Bits' with BFS Imagine Ink Embossing Powder 'In the Navy'. I used 4 pieces of this chipboard under my picture. I cut one piece to make the design I wanted. I used 3 others papers of the Heartland collection to put under my picture. 


I embossed my title 'Follow Your Heart' with BFS Imagine Ink Embossing Powder 'Honey'.


Then, I glued many Blue Fern Studios blue, yellow, white and turquoise flowers.


Here's the link to see the video tutorial:

2Crafty December Layouts

"A Christmas Tradition"


Hello 2 Crafty fans! 
 Catherine here with you today to share two new layouts that I hope will inspire you. This is my last post as a 2 Crafty Design Team member. The time has come to leave this beautiful team that I love so much to meet new challenges. 


Of course, my first layout is a Christmas one. Every year, my children and I are going to visit Santa Claus and, of course, I always take several pictures of this event. This is our Christmas tradition. For this layout, I used 'Blitzen' chipboard that I embossed with silver powder to goes with my paper.


Of course, I choose the title 'A Christmas Tradition'  that I embossed in black to make it stand out. I put it in part on my picture. Under it, I used a star stencil with black modeling paste to add dimension on my background. 


I also embossed my 'Holly Flourish' in silver to match my paper and add silver details. 

2Crafty products used:
- a Christmas Tradition
- Blitzen
- Holly Flourish




'Pretty as a Picture'


My second layout isn't a Christmas one, but I love it! For this one, I did a textured background with stencil, modeling paste, violet and brown inks and some stamps with brown Archival ink.


I embossed my title 'Pretty As A Picture' and my 'Moroccan Bits' with oatmeal embossing powder.


Then, I embossed with garnet embossing powder my 'Frame Oval Ornate' to frame my picture. 



2 Crafty products used:
- Moroccan Bit

I hope that you have found some inspiration for your projects 
and I want to say goodbye to everyone of you. Thank you so much for your comments, I had a blast being part of 2 Crafty Design Team! I wish you a nice crafty day!

Une page pour CSI en tant que DT 2 Crafty Chipboard

Bonjour! J'ai oublié de vous partager une page inspirée d'un défi du mois d'octobre sur CSI pour 2Crafty Chipboard. Le combo couleur m'a donné du fil à retordre, mais j'aime bien le résultat final. J'ai bien sûr utilisé plusieurs chipboards de 2Crafty!

Hello! I forgot to share this layout I made for CSI as 2Crafty DT member. The colors gives me some difficulties but at the end, I love the result. Of cours, I use a lot of 2Crafty chippies!
