'My Sweet daughter', March project for Blue Fern Studios.

Hello friends, I'm back! :-)

Yup, I realize I've been a very bad blogger lately but today I actually have a page to share with you. 
I have been scrapping behind the scenes and will post a few more things soon.So finally a page and I'm using one of the stunningly beautiful papers from the Blue Fern Studios Ombre Dreams collection.
Each and every one of those patterned papers inspire me immensely!

This sheet has a blue and purple background that is very helpful if you want to do some mixed media work on top. The work is half done for you so to speak:-) I used some of the new stamps from the Love Story collection here as well. I used them around the edges and in the center. Stamps are
perfect for creating a beautiful setting for your photo.

I painted the chipboard pieces bright yellow to match my DD's jacket. 
I used the lid of a glue stick to stamp the round shapes and filled them in rather haphazardly with some 
more of the yellow acrylic paint.

Below you get a closer look at how I used the stamps.

 (For this page I used: Love Story Stamps set one, Love Story Stamps set two, Manor Hinges,  
Ombre Dreams paper collection, Arrow words set, Notebook Edges.)

Thanks for looking !

A page using Urbex (Happy Mail) by Les Papiers de Pandore.

A while ago I received the Happy Mail Box from Les Papiers de Pandore.
I think it's just gorgeous,actually.I posted a picture on my blog as it was revealed and you can see it HERE:

Here is my first example.
 I have been a bit low on mojo, but I have another one to share with you soon.
I love the clean lines of this collection.

I used a die cut that I made with my Silhouette as a background and layered on some of the papers of  the 15x15 collection. I think the light blue planks of this paper look so wonderful. Perfectly shabby!

I like the fun theme of photography of this collection and decided to put some of my Sizzix dies to good use. They have a few dies with cameras and this one is called You & Me (659780). You can see this set HERE.

The lovely chipboardframe that I painted yellow is by Blue Fern studios and part of a set of three in different sizes. You can see them HERE.

I added a few mini roses and enamel dots by Papirdesign to add some extra feminine flair, as well as a little paint and some small splats of colour here and there.

I have used paper and badge from the Urbex collection.

Thanks for looking! :)

Blue Fern Studios March sketch challenge.

Wow, didn't March came very quickly this year!?  ;-)
 Well, that's what the calendar says so that means a brand new sketch and challenge on the Blue Fern Studios blog.  This one was designed by Michele Singh.

 If you have it you can use the beautiful chipboard frame (Keepsake Frame) on this month's sketch, but if you don't you can just use any other piece. In fact you do not have to use a frame at all on your layout. 
I recommend that you check out the BFS blog to see some gorgeous examples of what you can do with the sketch and some beautiful Blue Fern Studios products.

Here are some rules for you (taken from the blog):

''One lucky winner, selected by a random draw, will receive a prize package of Blue Fern Studios chipboard!

In addition, we will also select 3 (or more) layouts to feature.
We have just a few simple rules to follow if you would like to participate in our sketch challenge:

1.) Feel free to interpret the sketch as you please by means of taking it as-is or 
flipping/turning/mirroring it to suit your needs! 

2). Please note that you can do whatever type of project you please - a layout, card, 
  canvas, altered item- whatever suits your mood and style! 
We would love to see the different ways our sketch can be used.

3.) You must use at least one piece of Blue Fern Studios chipboard OR use Blue Fern Studios paper on your project. Please note that you do not need to use the pieces featured in the sketch
- use whatever suits your fancy! You can find the store nearest you HERE.
 {Do not use any other brand of chipboard on your project please!}

4.) Upload your project using the Inlinkz tool below by midnight EST on March 31, 2015

We look forward to seeing how you use our sketch and Blue Fern products!''
