My very first post for Blue Fern Studios.

Hello there!

Today I am delighted to share my very first post on the Blue Fern Studios blog!

This is what I made:

Here I used the Roman Clock set and the Arrow Words set. 
To add colour to the pieces and create a coherent look I coloured the pieces with an ink chalker.

I love the feminine look created by lifting and layering a piece of the pretty Montage paper.

My next page features the youngest members of the family. 
-My DD and Lady, the royal princess of our house :-)

Again I used the beautifully decorated papers from the Montage collection.
The large frame is called Shabby Layered Frame.
In the corners you can see some Tattered Diamond bits.

I love these pictures that I took a while back. 
I love the look of the enamel dots on the black painted frame.

 Finally to round off this post I created a couple of cards using the lovely Sanctuary collection.

I used the pretty Roman Clock set and the Arrow words  here as well.

On this card is also a small piece from the Ironwork Accents set.

Products used: Papers from the Montage collection and the Sanctuary collection, Roman Clock set, Arrow Words set, Shabby Layered frame, Tattered Diamond bits, Ironwork Accents.

I hope you liked my first creations as a DT member for Blue Fern Studios.
Thanks for looking!

Two pages and a card for Lemoncraft

Hello again. 
I am so glad to be back to share some projects with you.

First I have two pages that I made in the mixed media style. 
I used the 'Forget Me Not' collection and the 'Just Love Me' collection as well.

Here is the mainly 'blue' page I made:

I used some dies to make the round shapes and added some fussy cut elements from the A4 sheets.

I also made a page in mostly pink tones:

I used a stencil and a mix of mists and paints here. The title is 'Technical Cousins and you can see they are all playing with their phones and electrical games, even at a young age :-)

Finally I have a card that I made for the Sizzix blog using beautiful Lemoncraft products from the 'House of Roses' collection.

Thank you for looking!

Decorated card and cupcake for a birthday celebration for Sizzix/Papirdesign

Looksie what I found,....  
A couple of posts that I prepared but never got round to publishing. 
This one was combining Sizzix dies and Papirdesign papers. 
I must say I am very partial to the purple!!

The die I used is the Tattered florals die by Tim Holtz and I think it is probably the die that has been sold most of all.... And if it wasn't, at least I think it should find a home with all of you!!

'Grattis' is Swedish for Congratulations. I used the small rosette die to make the little holder for the mini cupcake as well as for the little decoration on a tooth pick.

The green leaves were made using the Tattered leaves die, also by Tim Holtz for Sizzix.
I used a needle to scratch into them to make them look more natural.

Thanks for looking! Hugs!

New collection Urbex, Happy Mail from Pandore, and a caaaandy!

Hi there all you creative people!
Did you miss me,..?
I am finally back to the world of the living after a few horrendous weeks of packing my home of 20 years into crates and boxes. (Unfortunately I still do not have an internet connection installed.) 
I was not very happy over the fact that  my beautiful home would be sold and someone else would be living there, but now that it's finally over and I have come to terms with the fact it is actually kind of a relief,.... But,...divorce sucks, every possible way!!

On a happier note I would like to share the news of a new beautiful collection and a candy from 
Les Papiers de Pandore. Julie Blanc has done it again and her limited edition 'Urbex' kit is just as gorgeous and well designed as her previous lines.

For a chance to win the Urbex Happy Mail you must comment on this post on the Pandore blog or on Facebook.

This is what she had to say about her kits:

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

We would love to see the different ways our sketch can be used.
