You Rock My World- Blue Fern Studios

Hi everyone, I'm excited to share my first Blue Fern Studios creation for the year. This is my second year with Blue Fern Studios and I'm very proud to be with them again for the upcoming year!! 

 I used one of the Sanctuary collection paper as a background and to frame the photo.

I used the notebook edges to frame the the layout. I simply primed it in gesso and then stamped it randomly.

I used different mixed media drips for the background and some Prima Marketing embellishments around the photo.

I used one of the Grunge Talk chipboard pieces as a title as it gave a double standard as both a title and the theme of the photo.

Dream Garden- Prima's Butterfly Collection

Presenting the new Butterfly Collection from Prima. It was designed for the 2015 CHA show as their new release. Its very shabby chic and whimsical. I loved using it for this baby photo below.

The Butterfly collection is the perfect girly collection to scrap little baby girls like this darling baby in the photo. I wanted to make it feel as if she was sleeping on a soft bed of roses by using the French Roses paper as a background and by adding matching Prima flowers. It gives the feeling that she's in a dream garden.

Adding the fairy  at the top helped tie into the garden theme. The fairy is just flying above protecting that beautiful baby.

Love- 7 Dots Studios

Here is my first project this new year for 7 Dots Studios.
I used the Cold Country collection designed by the talented Finnabair, to create this layout.

I Designed this layout for a very special couple who's about to get married. I thought it would be a sweet home coming gift to hang on their walls as newlyweds. I used the Cold Country collection because I loved combining the teal and the purple flowers along with it. 
I used many different stickers around the layout displaying messages of love.

The background was created using Prima's silver textured crackle paste and FW Pearlescence acrylic paint. I tried to match the colours of the paint with the background. Then I added matching Prima flowers too.

7 Dots Studio Products:
Cold Country- Freezing tears
Cold Country- 6x12 Elements
Cold Country- word stickers

Sweet Dream- Prima's Bedtime Stories Collection

Here is another layout created with Prima Products for this winter's CHA.
I used the Bedtime Stories collection along with new Prima flowers and vellum butterflies.

There's nothing sweeter than seeing a child sleep and knowing they are dreaming of wonderful things. This is the first thing that I felt when I saw the bedtime stories collection. That's why I used it to scrapbook this picture of my daughter sleeping

I thought it would be a nice touch to ad some resin fairies hopping around in my daughter's dreams. How cute would that be!!

Memories & Laughter- Blue Fern Studios January sketch

Hope this year brings many blessings to everyone!!

I'm here to showcase the new sketch from Blue Fern Studios which I'm happy to say I will be staying to design for them for another year!

Here is the sketch in case you feel like playing with us this month:

We recently took professional photos in the forest nearby and I thought the photo was perfect for these Sanctuary papers.

I used different sizes of Prima flowers to accent this layout. I loved combining the earthy tones with the blues. Its a combination I haven't used often but I really like the results.
