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:

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!
