Be Happy With Blue Fern Studios Timeless Collection

Happy Thursday! I'm back with another layout. This time I used a precious picture of my granddaughter. As the post title says, I used the Blue Fern Studios Timeless paper collection. Let me tell you, it is gorgeous!! I actually took the time to use some Tim Holtz ink and a sponge on this page. I love the look more than splattering something with mist/spray. It's a little time consuming but so is trying to flatten a page after spraying. Anyway, here is the layout:






I cut four cards from the paper and layered under the photo. I wanted to see all the designs and flowers. I then inked and added a few round pieces from Prima's Salvage District Ephemera. The tails were cut by hand and then I added liquid pearls. I altered the chipboard with some Shimmerz Paints Texturez. The butterflies were stamped with Primas Romance novel and then pearls were added from Want 2 scrap.

And here is a list of materials:

Blue fern Studios Timeless paper collection
Blue fern Studios Blooming Flourish chipboard
Petaloo Mini green burlap flowers
Petaloo Mini Daisy Petites -antique mauve
Prima Flowers item # 586850

Together Forever Wedding Layout

Happy Wednesday! Today I want to share a wedding layout of my son and daughter-in-law.This would be my oldest son and his wife. I cannot even tell you how many times this layout changed. The first time I thought I was ready to put it together, my poodle Lucy, got hold of the flowers laying on top and ate them. I was both mad and worried about her. So with those being the only flowers of that kind I had, I needed another plan. I did have three small doilies but when I glued the Together on, I noticed it was a lot more crooked than what I was comfortable with. So off came the small doilies. Anyway this seemed to be my nightmare layout, and now I am ready to post it. Of course, I now notice that the photograph was not a very clear picture. See what I mean? Well it's glued, so enjoy! I hope it inspires you!

Wedding Day Dusty Attic Carousel

I am back to scrapping after a 2-3 year break. My creativity had bottomed out and I knew it was time to take a hiatus. So I have been crafting for about 3 weeks now and working on the Dusty Attic Carousel I had purchased at Swirlydoo's about 2 yrs ago. I bought it to showcase a few pictures of my youngest son and daughter-in-laws wedding. I really enjoyed working on it, and at times I would just stare at it trying to think of what to do next. I decided to use light colored papers so the photos would shine.Here is your first view:












Materials used:

Key to my Heart Collection from Kaisercraft
Misc paper purchased at an LSS

Prima Junkyard Findings Lace Heart

Swirlydoos Scrapbook Kits: Layout Of The Week 3/2/14

Here's the layout again.

Happy Easter card

Well I should have posted this card a few weeks ago, but I have been working on so may projects that I haven't had time. Besides cards are never my first priority. I made this card for a challenge over at Swirlydoo's. It was the round robin challenge and I tied for first place. It's hard to take the credit when you are following others examples, but I was happy with the end result.


I hope you find inspiration in this for your own cards. Thanks for stopping by.

Heaven sent an Angel

Hello again. I have finished another layout using the February kit from Swirlydoo's. I used a combination of Prima flowers with Dusty Attic flowers. The chain chipboard is from Blue Fern Studios. The leaves were made with the Spellbinders Foliage die set. I put green texturez paint from Shimmerz Paints on the leaves, and after that was dry I sprayed them with White Linen Dylusions mist. I thought they came out perfect for this layout. I also sprayed a few sides of the paper with the White Linen mist. I used the Martha Stewart Doily punch for a border near the top and bottom and only let a portion of it show. The heart was made using one of Martha Stewart's art clay and molds. I thought it was the perfect touch. I am having fun with the art clay. I think I need to find more molds. Here is my layout. I hope you enjoy it.

Another Layout Using Fab Scraps

Hello, I am back again with a new layout to show you using Fab Scrap papers. These came in the wonderful kit I get from Swirlydoo's! It is another wedding layout and I just love this simple but yet touching picture! I am doing some of the wedding pics in black and white, and then will probably go back and do them again in color if I find the right papers that match. Basically for this layout I did a lot of distressing, layering, and spraying. Really quite simple because for me it's like doing a tag, and I find them easy. Filling up a page is more challenging to me, but to get caught up on pictures you may see me doing more of these.

Materials used:

Fab Scraps Shabby Mix
Fab Scraps Little Darlings
Corrugated cardboard
Doilies
Prima Resin Clocks
Dusty Attic Mini Scrolls
Dusty Attic Blue Bonnet Flowers
Dusty Attic Cornsilk Flowers
Perfect Pearl Mist Forever Blue
Dylusions Ink Spray White Linen
Lindys Mist Frozen Jack Frost
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Stormy Sky


Here's my layout:










I hope you enjoy it, and thank you for stopping by.
