Today We Feature YOU!

We've been looking around the Internet for layouts and other projects using our products.  You continue to amaze us with the creative ways in which you alter and use our chipboard, and we love to see you create on our paper!  Take a look at what we have found:

Eila Sandburg of Sweden has used several pieces of Blue Fern chipboard 
to create a garden feel for this sweet layout.

This gorgeous layout by 2014 Creative Team member, Maja Stokk, brings together Blue Fern chipboard and paper from our Sanctuary Collection.

We found this layout by Cat444 in an online gallery.  Love the way she used Blue Fern chipboard behind the photo collage layer.  It shows that you don't always have to alter the chipboard.  It's beautiful bare!

Paper from our Sanctuary Collection is the perfect background for this shabby chic, romantic layout that Karen created.

Kimberly Heard has also used paper from the Sanctuary Collection to create this layout featuring a photo of herself and a friend.   The circle frame is a perfect way to frame this photo!

Thanks ladies for making us look so good and inspiring our readers!

First DT projects by Zanka

It's my turn to welcome you on BFS blog for the first time! My name is Zaneta Glowa aka Zanka. I'm truly happy to cooperate with BFS and I'm looking forward to this new scrappy adventure!
I'm coming from Poland but nowadays I live in Sweden, I moved here more than 10 years ago. 
I discovered scrapbooking in 2010, an amazing world has opened its door to me and took me by the storm. 
At work I’m all fact and figures but I'm happy to take an escape to creativity when I have some spare time. I can slow down after a busy day, think through the things that happened -or sometimes just forget everything and make some mess ;)
I’m trying to explore different expressions and styles, although I’m most often staying within a romantic, feminine stream. I love to add a mixed media touch to my works. My key discoveries during my journey so far have been: stamps, gesso and Twinkling H2Os, all of these still remaining the first choice in my toolbox.
You are warmly welcome to visit my blog at

So this is me:

For my first layout I used Sanctuary collection, I've fallen in love with the rose images!

Chipboards : Quatrefoil panel, Tattered diamond bits.
When you get your chipboard panels, most of them are still including the cut bits which you normally pop out. I discovered that those loose bits are perfect as embellishments themselves! I decorated mine with gesso, ink, stamps and  covered them with glossy accents.

For the second layout I picked Ombre papers.
Chipboards: Hello Summer, Ginger Poppies

The chipboards are gently treated with gesso and watercolours, the same which I also used in the background.

My third layout was already presented with the sketch reveal. Once again, I used the Sanctuary collection.
Chipboards: Captured Words, Graduated Squares, Spring Branch 

Here's probably where I've spend most time on altering the chipboards. 

For the title, I only added some white accents, otherwise I let the elegant,  original colour of the chipboard to be seen. 
On the frame, I have used texture paste and goldfinger paint. The branch is coloured with wax crayons and acrylic paint. 

That's all from me today, thank you for spending some time with me here !

One 2 3 of a Kind Layout Video Tutorial with Einat Kessler

Hey crafty friends! Einat Kessler here with my first video tutorial as BFS video educator. I'm so happy and honored to be joining this talented team!

I'm a mother of two teenage boys and married to a supportive loving husband. We live in Israel close to Tel Aviv. I started scrapbooking when my son was born and have been doing it ever since. As time went by it turned from a hobby to a business and today it's my full time job. Today I also create a lot of mixed media, art journaling, altered projects and interactive designs. I love experimenting and trying new things so my art is evolving all the time.

I'm happy to share with you my first video tutorial: One of a Kind mixed media layout.

BFS products used:
Papers: Sanctuary - Meadows of Time
Papers: Sanctuary - Bountiful
Chipboard: One of a Kind
Chipboard: Printer's bits

My other project is an inspirational canvas. It's a 4X4 canvas that has a statement on it. I'm planning to have one of my studio walls filled with these...

I used the chipboards to create a textured background by covering them with gesso and spraying. Then I used a pen nib with black ink to write on the canvas and chipboard as if they were one.

BFS products used:
Chipboard: Directions

Have fun creating!

My First DT Projects By Angelica Franssen

Hello everyone! Angelica here with you today. I'm so excited to finally share my very first  projects as Blue Fern Studios designer. I’m so delighted to be part of a team with amazing designers and fantastic products. I hope this year you’ll be inspired by my projects. Here is a little bit about me….

My name is Angelica and I’m a stay-at-home mom. I’ve been married for sixteen years and have four children. I first started scrapbooking about fifteen years ago while my husband was serving in the military. He was frequently deployed and I needed something to keep me occupied. I wasn't a crafter until I found scrapbooking and never looked backed.  I love the art it's become today. I'm very passionate about scrapbooking and this has led me achieve a small successful business on Etsy.

You can find me at my blog
This is my first project based on the sketch:
I used the Meadows of Time, Botanical Garden and Calling Cards pattern paper from the Sanctuary Collection. I painted the Grunge Frame chippy randomly with gesso and misted it. Once it was dry I added just a tad bit of burgundy paint.

 For this layout I used the Garden Plaza and Conservatory papers also from the Sanctuary Collection. I did some layering with the Large Roman Clock pieces. Painting them with gesso then adding some textured paint.  Once dried I place the small clock on top of the large.

The Butterfly Grid had to be my most favorite piece. If you know me, you know I adore butterflies. I painted the grid and adhered it to the Boudoir pattern paper. Then, I layered the Tattered Butterflies over larger butterflies on the grid. Making it three dimensional.

Thank you for taking the time.....see you next month!!!

My first 2015 Creations- By Keren Tamir

Hi everyone, Keren here excited to share my Blue Fern Studios creations for a second year and I can't wait to share them with you!!

Here is a little bit more about myself and then two of my creations for this month!!

My name is Keren Tamir and I live in Canada. I am a wife to a wonderful husband who is very supportive of my scrapbooking and a mother of two amazing kids; a 13 year old boy and a 8 year old girl. I’ve been scrapbooking for 11 years and I mainly scrapbook about my family.
I love to create and experiment with many different mediums and techniques. I also love using lots of flowers and vines in my projects. My style is always evolving and that’s one of the things I love about this art.
One of the main reasons I started scrapbooking was to preserve memories and photos for my children. However over the couple of years, I’ve started to enjoy another aspect of scrapbooking. I love the artistic outlet that it gives me. I love to create and I’m passionate about what I do.
I’m delighted to join Blue Fern Studios Design team for a second year. To see more of my art please visit my blog at:
I hope you enjoy my creations!!


"You rock my world"

Here is the first one of my layouts for this month. 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 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.



This second layout was also designed with the new Sanctuary collection.

The photo was framed in one of the Memory Frames. The frame was painted in brown and then I randomly glued bronzed coloured micro-beads. The same was done to the Fancy signage chipboard piece.

Finally I added the "Cherish" title from the "Adore, Love, Cherish" set.

Thank you so much for visiting the Blue Fern Studios blog.

Have a wonderful day!!
