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:
