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.

You can find me on:



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:

I did my second layout on the gorgeous paper 'Wonderland' of the collection Vintage Christmas. I first did a subtile tone on tone background with modeling paste, stencil and brown inks. Then, I stamped with brown ink some words with the 'Vintage Phrase' stamp set. 

I embossed the 'Floral Lattice Bits' chipboards with BFS Imagine Ink Embossing Powder 'Garnet' to add a little bit of colour. I used pieces of Vintage Christmas 'Greeting Cards' paper and Vintage Christmas 2 'Holiday Cards' to put under my picture. 

I embossed the chipboard 'Circle Vine' with BFS Imagine Ink Embossing Powder 'Ginger' and my title 'Magnifique' from the French Adjectives 1 chipboard set with BFS Imagine Ink Embossing Powder 'Garnet'.

Then, I add many Blue Fern Studios flowers.
