My Blue Fern Studios projects for September using NEW Autumn Anthology.

Hi there. I hope you are all well.
I have been pretty busy juggling two jobs and trying to fit in some me time in between.
At least it's good to have some awesome supplies to play with when I DO find the time,....
My two pages here show off some sheets from the new beautiful paper collection Autumn Anthology from Blue Fern Studios.  Michelle Singh simply came up with a mixture of stunning designs and some of my most favourite colours.(again!)

Here is my first page with the collection:

Did you know that Blue Fern Studios now even carry mists? There will be new mists with each collection and I used two of the new colours here; Imagine Inks Leaf and Sky.

I painted the chipboard title-words a neutral beige colour and decorated with some micro beads.
I used  the stunning  Jackie's Window to ground my design and this one is also painted with a mix of acrylic paint and some green mist. After it dried I went over the edges with a small chalk ink pad.

As you can see I  used some of the new stamps on my page. 
I used all three designs from the Essential Textures set. 
I cut out the banner that you can see under the chipboard from one of the calling cards.
The title is made of a couple of words from the  Chunky Words set.

To make my flower cluster complete I added a few small chipboard twigs called Berry Stems. 
I love the brown colour they were painted and the delicate look of them. 

Ok, now for my second page for today:

 Another beautiful sheet from the Autumn Anthology collection
I actually fussy cut a part of one paper and added it on top of this blue one, (in case you go looking for a paper that looks like this :-D)

I used the Royal Heart Frame to surround the photo on top of the layers of paper and calling cards.

After I painted the heart frame a suitable colour I heat-embossed it with gold using one of the same textured stamps as above. I think the look is really neat!! 

I added a few bits and pieces from the inside of larger chipboard pieces. 
I find these are good to hold on to as they can be really useful.

 As you see from the shot here I have added quite a lot of media to my layered papers. 
I added different Prima Art Ingredients beads as well as glitter gel, paint, gesso, and ink. 
I used some Fine Prima Art Sugar which means there is a certain shimmer to the page that does not come through in the pictures.

Finally a little reminder that there's still ample time to join in our sketch challenge for September.

Below is a picture of the sketch and a page I made as an example.

You can read ALL bout the challenge HERE.

Thanks for looking!

A Christmas collection from Blue Fern Studios.

I just had to pop in with a late post to share this upcoming gorgeous collection from Blue Fern Studios. YES!  There will be a Christmas colection and a beautiful one at that!!
Just yesterday I was wondering to myself if there would be a holiday line or not, and I got my answer even before I could ask the question!!

Here is a preview:

The collection is by Michelle Singh and it's called Vintage Christmas.
It will contain six double sided papers as well as coordinating chipboard, stamps and also three new colours of mist. I can't wait!!

A page for the Blue Fern September sketch challenge.

At the beginning of each month there is a gorgeous sketch to inspire you on the Blue Fern Studios blog. Here's the one for September. You are hereby all invited to check it out!! :-)

I have more or less followed the sketch as it is but you are allowed to turn it around as you wish 
and adapt it to your satisfation. You'll find out more about the challenge HERE!

I used one of the Frolic papers for my page. 

I even used some lovely chipboard here. 
The floral piece behind the photo is called Paisley & Vine Medley and I even used the 
Notebook Edges as an accent .

The pretty baloon is a stamp by Blue fern Studios that belongs to the Journey set.

I cut some sweet leaves with my Silhouette to add to the mixture of Prima flowers and flowers 
that I had in my stash. The cute hearts and arrows come from the Directions set and were 
quite simply just pinted black.

The foilage was cut with a Sizzix Bigz die called Garden Greens and it was designed by Tim Holtz.
I really am sooo in love with my new Big Shot Plus that can cut up to A4 size. 

That's all for now my friends! Hope to see you again soon!! :-)

Celebrate the change of season with Scandinavia collection from Les Papiers de Pandore!

Ok, it's a bit early for my taste to talk about Autumn and Winter yet!! Still there are some good things resulting from the change of seasons,....What a pleasure it is to present  Les Papiers de Pandore's 

last collection of the year and my favorite of all: Scandinavia 

A wood and textile feeling, and several possible color combos to use this collection fall and winter ...

This kit includes a little more paper than usual as there are two papers sized 20x30 cm as well as stamps,and masks/stencils made ​​in partnership with the Creative Pause. 

And as if this was not enough you will get two 38mm flair buttons as well.

-And the  icing on the cake is that you can choose how many papers you want to receive (double or triple..)

Don´t you just love these awesome goodies!!?

I think it's so FUN that all the papers have been named after Swedish 
cities, including the one where I live ! :-D

The über-talented Julie Blanc, who is the heart and soul behind the 

brand has even prepared a tutorial for this edition of 'Happy Mail' 

She is sharing her inspiration through a mini abum in gorgeous 
beige / blue / yellow / black denim combo. (Julie decided to save the 
red accents for the sesonal projects around Christmas.)

I can´t wait to start creating with this box of Happy Mail, and I can tell you 
it's every bit as pretty in reall life!! I will share with you soon! :-)
