"Happy Life" Video Education Team: Kelly

Hello everyone!
Kelly here.
Today marks my final post here on the Blue Fern Studios team..
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 here at Blue Fern!!

Happy & Thankful- By Keren Tamir

Keren here for my last post for 2014. What a great year it has been!! It was truly an amazing journey.
I have two layouts featuring the Sanctuary collection and a couple of frames and word chipboard pieces.


 Sanctuary "Meadows of Time" paper.

I used the seaside frame which I painted in two tones of distress paint.

As a title, I used the word Happy from the set: happy, laughter, smile.



Sanctuary "Conservatory" paper.

I'm really happy about this fall layout of my family because I used the new round butterfly frame to frame the photo. The butterfly frame was designed by ME!!! for Blue Fern Studios. Visit the wholesale store to see some more of my designs.
Its really cool to use one of my own designs and I can't wait to see what my other DT members do with them.

The frame was painted in golden acrylic paint and then stamped with brown ink to create a textured pattern.

I used the Thankful chipboard as a title.

Thank you so much for visiting the Blue Fern Studios Blog!!
Have a wonderful day!!

Two layout with the new Sanctuary collection by Marie-Josee

Hello all! I hope you are doing fine! Christmas is just around the corner and I am sure those of you who are celebrating it are super busy right now! Here's a bit of inspiration for you, in case you have time to create a layout or two before the big day! :)

"Adorable" layout

I used the B side of the Calling Cards paper from the Sanctuary collection for my background, which I altered with various mists, modeling paste, ink and stamps.

I also used the two pieces of the Corner Flourishes set. I decided not to alter them, because I love the look of bare chipboard with this new paper collection.

My title was made with the word "Adorable" from the French Words set. I also left it bare.

"Let it snow" layout

Once again, I used a paper from the Sanctuary collection for my background, the Bountiful paper.

I cut squares out of various papers and I glued them randomly to my background, which I altered with mists and modeling paste.

While it was drying, I altered the four snowflakes of the Shabby Flakes set. I started with gesso, which I dried with my heat gun to create texture, and then, I added PearlEx with a bit of water for a shimmery finish.

I used the Let it Snow chipboard for my title. I altered it my pressing my white ink pad on it, leaving some bare spots.

Happy Holidays to all, have fun and be safe!
