Have you ever wished........

Welcome to July!  We hope you had a chance to see the new paper collection we introduced yesterday.
If you didn't, you can click HERE to see the beautiful Seaside Cottage Collection.


So, are you wondering about the title of this post?  We want to start this month off a little differently.
Instead of a Sketch Challenge, we thought we would mix it up a little.  We have many chipboard words and titles, but have you ever wished you could see your favorite word or phrase as a Blue Fern chipboard piece?
Now is your chance to do just that.

From now through the end of July, we would like for you to give us your ideas. 
Just leave a comment on this blog post (one comment per person, please).
It must be a word, or a group of words that form a title. 

We will also be running this contest on our Facebook page.
You have a chance to enter a second time there. 

At the end of the month, we will choose one word/title from the blog entries,
and one from the Facebook entries.   The two winners will receive a prize package of Blue Fern goodies.

So get those creative minds working, and give us some ideas.
We can't wait to see what you come up with!

Let's go to the beach!

We are thrilled to announce the release of our new paper collection - Seaside Cottage.   When we hear the word "seaside", several images come to mind; white sand, clear blue water, gentle waves, seashells, summer vacations, and the list could go on-and-on.  The beach is a place you can go to escape all the pressures of life.  
We bring that relaxed feeling to this new collection created by Michele Singh.  

Seaside Cottage is a 10-page collection of double sided paper that evokes the magic of the beach. 
 You will find beautiful images, lots of amazing texture, and soothing beach colors. 
















 












We also have 2 sets of coordinating flowers:





And what would a new collection be without some fabulous new chipboard?
We have some seaside images, as well as some amazing titles for all your summer projects!


And to enhance all this beautiful chipboard, we have a few new colors of embossing powder:


Our design team has so many ideas swirling around in their creative minds.  
We can't wait to share some of their projects with you in the upcoming weeks.
