April Projects- by Keren Tamir

"Love This"

My first share this month for Blue Fern Studios is another beach layout.

I used the Sanctuary collection for the background and stamped it with the new textured stamps. Then I built the layout with chipboard and flowers.

I framed the photo with the Circle vine chipboard and used a couple of mini flourishes to add more swirls around the photo.

Then I added the "Love this" arrow word title.
All chipboard was painted with Antique Gold brown spray ink.


"Shadow Box Frame"

My second project this month is a shadow box frame which I covered with the Correspondence paper from the Sanctuary collection.

I framed the photo in the notebook frame, which was inked with brown acrylic ink.

The frame was embellished with flowers and the Seasonal Wildflower chipboard pieces. I also inked them in brown and then glued golden micro-beads on the flowers.

Thank you for visiting the Blue Fern Studios blog.

A Love Story - Mixed Media Layout Tutorial

Hello Blue Fern Studios fans!

I'm a little late for my share this month but here it is finally! Using the gorgeous Love Story collection, stamps and BFS' intricately designed chipboards, I created the following layout for a girlfriend who got married recently. 

Some closeups of the project:

Deja Vu Layouts!

We have a couple of gorgeous layouts to share with you today.  We are so excited
to be able to feature layouts using our brand new Deja Vu paper collection,
chipboard pieces, and some of our new stamps.  Be prepared to be amazed!

Angelica Franssen has combined three papers from the Deja Vu collection (Petites Cartes, Lustre, and Tresors) that so elegantly show off the soft purple in this line.   Angelica also used the Luminaries and Deja Vu Border chipboard pieces which were created to coordinate perfectly with this paper collection.

Keren Tamir chose the lovely Friperies paper for this extra sweet layout.  She used the Blue Fern Butterfly Kisses title, and framed the photo with our Butterfly Frame - Square.  The stamped images in the background are from the Deja Vu Stamp Set.

Keep checking back as we reveal more layouts from our Creative Team showing you how they are using products from the Deja Vu Collection.

Three off-the-page projects by Marie-Josée

Hello all,

Today, I will show you three off-the-page projects created with the beautiful Blue Fern Studios products!

Pop-up box with the Sanctuary collection

This is supposed to be a card, but to me, it looks more like an off-the-page project, since there is no place to write text. However, it can make a great wedding or anniversary souvenir, combined with a card. Thus the "Your Hearts Together" sentiment on the front panel.

For those of you who are interested to know how to create this project, here's a great tutorial I found on YouTube.

I used various papers from the Sanctuary collection to create this card: Birdsong Melody, Meadows of Time and Garden Plaza.

I cut the birds and flowers out of two different papers: The brown birds were cut out of the Birdsong Melody paper, whereas the blue bird and the flowers were cut out of the Meadows of Time paper.

On the front panel, I used a piece of the Bowed Trinkets to frame my sentiment.

I used the Mini Flourishes on the back panel to add texture and interest behind the paper flowers.

I also cut two pieces of the Lattice Fence to use on the side of my pop-up box.

Here's another view of the whole card.

Canvas with the Montage collection

Here's a small canvas (6" x 8") that I created with the Montage collection.

First, I altered my canvas with gesso, various mists and stamps.

Then, I also altered the small Circle Flourish frame with gesso and mists. I also added pearls on the circles of the frame.

Then I cut a piece of the Calling Cards paper from the Montage collection to use as a background.

I also used one of the calling card in the center of my frame.

Wall decor with various Blue Fern Studios collection

To create this piece, I used paper scraps from various Blue Fern Studios collections: Ombre Dreams, Montage, Sanctuary, and Love Story.

First, I used foam dots to assemble all the pieces of paper, to give dimension to my project. Then, using my finger, I applied gesso to the edges of the papers. Then, I sprayed various colors on the whole project: brown, white, and black.

I used the Blooming Foliage chipboard, combined with flowers. I altered it with gesso and green mists.

Then, I used the Dream Big chipboard, which I altered with black gesso.

April Projects by Melinda Thompson

Hi everyone :)

I have two new projects to share with you today using lots of gorgeous Blue Fern Studios products.
For my 1st layout I have chosen to use some Ombre Dreams so gorgeous! I have used Charlotte's Dream as the background paper with the Calling Cards as my layers.

"Baby Blues"

I have used the Roman Clock Set - Small and teamed it up with the gorgeous Tattered Butterlies and the word Baby from the Baby Words Set.

I have used lots of mists and inks to blend and tone my chipboard peices in to the colours of my photo and papers.

Products Used:
Paper: Omber Dreams - Charlotte's Dreams & Calling Cards
Chipboard: Roman Clock Set - Small, Tattered Butterflies, Baby

My 2nd project I decided to start with a plain white sheet of cardstock as I wanted to use the Number Grid - Large to be the focus of my layout.


Paper layers behind the photo are from the Sanctuary Collection.  I love that saying that is found on one of the Calling Cards.

I love these peices of chipboard from the Picture Perfect Collection..they are perfect for a fun layout.  I have again used many mists and inks with water to push the colour around on the chipboard.


Products Used:
Paper: Sanctuary Collection
Chipboard: Number Grid - Large, Smile, Picture Perfect, Negatives from the Jumbo Rings Panel

Hope you enjoyed my projects...
See you next month and happy scrapping!
Melinda :)
