A Few More From CHA!

Hello there!
Just a little updating to be done, as usual in all of my "busy-ness" I have fallen behind here on my blog- so sorry!
I thought I could pop in and share a few more projects for the Prima Marketing booth.

First up, one of my personal favorites...this one featuring the gorgeous Bella Rouge line.

I love when you have those perfect photos for the perfect paper :) The flowers in this photo were a very close match to those in the paper! I pulled it all together with a fun mixed media background full of modeling paste, micro beads, and glass beads.

"Happy Life" + Video

Hello everyone!

Today marks my final post on the Blue Fern Studios blog..
it truly has been a wonderful two years here at BFS. I am ever so grateful to Leslie for giving me the opportunity to create with the most beautiful chipboard designs (and papers, too!) on the market. It really has been wonderful watching this company grow and grow, really incredible!
I will always be a proud supporter of Blue Fern and am excited to see what happens next :)

SO - here is my layout I created, using the December sketch (Still time to play along!)

"Happy Life"

Are you thinking what I'm thinking?? Yes, he is INDEED the cutest. Ever. Ha ha!! But no really, my little guy truly lights up our lives..he is so smiley, easy going, and just all around a shining star. I love him so much! 
Sorry, enough gushing! 

True to the sketch, I wanted a grungy, fun, layered look behind the photos. I achieved this by layering the Notebook Edges and Printer's Bits, along with a few little scraps, and some flowers and metals  as well.

yes, glitter and flowers, on a boy page! Nothing wrong with that, right?

Have a look at the video:

Again, thank you for your love and support at Blue Fern!!

*New Prima Products!!* Layout/Tag Set

Hi everyone!
Can you believe it is CHA time again?! Prima Marketing is rolling out a whole pile of fabulous new, innovative (as always!) and super gorgeous products. Sneak peeks have already begun! Head over to the Prima Blog so you don't miss a thing!
Last week, they debuted new stencils, Wood Icons with Foil, and more...and this week so far we have seen some of the fabulous new Art Ingredients from Finnabair's lines.


On this layout you can see some of the awesome new Micro Beads, which I applied by first using 3D Gloss Gel through a (new) stencil, then sprinkling on top for a fun, shiny, textury effect.
The wood icon made a perfectly placed, simple title for this layout using one of the photos from our wedding recently. 
(Can you spy any other new items..? ssshhhh!!)

Next up...a tag set using the new Cling Stamps, Stencils, and Art Ingredients..

"Now Is The Right Time"

To adhere the Micro Beads, I used the same technique mentioned above. Once dry, I dabbed on some embossing ink and poured an irridescent embossing power over that and melted.

Lots of embossing was done also with the Cling Stamp set. I added a touch of Matte Gel to the flowers and embellishments and added just a touch of Micro Beads and Glass Beads.

"Special Moment" *Blue Fern Studios*

Hey everyone! How are you?
This past weekend I received the new Sanctuary collection from Blue Fern Studios in my mailbox :)
It is just so perfectly gorgeous...I had to make something right away!
This is one of my all time favorite photos of my oldest girl. We were hanging out on the deck, and she was telling princess stories, singing songs, and just rambling on and on. I adore the look on her face, her hair, the colors...all of it!

"Special Moment"

I used the Calling Cards and Conservatory papers, along with chipboard pieces Boston Lattice and Heart Essentials. To complete the look I layered in lots of Prima flowers, tags, brads, etc. 

Thanks for looking! Come back tomorrow for this month's video tutorial :)

November Build A Page *Prima Marketing*

Good morning!!
It is a cold, snowy one here as we just had our first snow storm of the year. (Not bad, considering it is November and this winter stuff usually starts sooner!)
How is the weather where you live?
Along with winter weather, the month of November brought a fantastic new sketch for the Prima Build A Page challenge :)

2014 November BAP Keren

Here is my take...

I combined old and new to get just the right color mix I was looking for...the beautiful and subtle pinks and puples from the Princess collection, combined with new flowers and embellishments.

I hope you get a chance to join us this month, find the full post and inspiration from the Prima team here.
