I'm also showing a step by step video below on how I created this layout.

I jus love my cup of coffee in the morning, especially if its milky and frothy like the cappuccino in this picture. So I thought it fitting to use the Coffee Time Collection to scrapbook this yummy treat.

Joy- Blue Fern Studios Part #2

This is my second layout for the Blue Fern Studios Blog this month and I'm continuing with my all around theme this month which is "Circles". I have used different circular designs this month to create each of my layouts. I hope they inspire you to create with circles and love them just as much as I do!!!

For this layout I used the Techno rings to frame the photo of my daughter painting and one of the words from the Ombré Dreams- Dream Cards paper.  First I primed the chipboard with gesso, Then I painted them with gelatos and added some stickles glitter. I also stamped them with Prima's circular stitched stamp (which is the same stamp used on the background). Finally I created white lines on them with a white acrylic marker.

I used the Ombré Dreams- Joyce's dream and matched all the embellishments and inks to it. I created a border using Prima Stitches lines stamp. I also sprayed and splattered the page using some Color Bloom sprays from Prima.

My daughter had so much fun using the dropper to create splatters on the page. It gave me so much joy watching her and so I used the Joy title from the Good Vibes chipboard word set.

Here is the inspirational circle:

There's nothing more fun that to be near a lake or a beach in the summer. There's just so many things to do and here is a perfect picture to showcase just that. My son and husband kayaking in the lake is the perfect summer fun activity.

 I used lots of different 7 Dots Studio stickers to layer the background and for the first time ever I used no flowers, which is very rare for me.

I also used a couple of Blue Fern Studio chipboard pieces which I painted with Shimmerz Inklingz. I used some Prima stamps: stitched lines and shells from the Seashore collection, and of course colour bloom sprays: glistening waves and gold foil.

Peace- Wooden OTP bird- Epiphany Collection

Thank you for visiting my blog today to see my new creation for Prima. I created a peace bird with lots of soft teals and whites.

The World really needs peace right now so I though this is the perfect project to send some loving and peaceful energy to the world. I hope it brings people some comfort!!

I loved creating this wooden bird with some of the new Prima flowers. The vellum Sunset flowers combined with the Manhattan Broadway flowers and the London Noble flowers were perfect to create this Peace bird.

I think the Epiphany collection was the perfect collection for this bird OTP as its full of bird cages and bird images. I loved covering the background with the "Manifestation of Love" paper as it has some script writing on it.

 I used some resin feathers as a perfect accent for the bird's tail and wing.

I also used one of the new Stone Stencils and one of the new Prima Die-cuts to create some white texture in the background to match with the other embellishments.

572822- Metal Die-cut
575724- Epiphany 4x6 journaling notecards

575939- Stencil Stone 1

I framed this cute photo of my daughter picking strawberries in the field with the treasured floral chipboard frame. I primed it with gesso and then colored it with markers.
Then I added circles from the Circle Group set which were coloured in yellow marker. finally I added the Good Vibes title on the side because she's truly just so happy here!!
