September Sketch with Jelissa and a Start to Finish Video

Hello there friends!

We're in September, and how fast time has past! Today I'm sharing with you my take on Blue Fern Studios' September sketch challenge as part of my video education post.

Here is the wonderful sketch by Michelle:

And my interpretation of it:

That's my cat again as I realised I havn't scrapped much photos of my pets. I have lots of my children though and to many, they are one and the same. I've used the beautiful papers from Ombre Dreams, as well as some lovely chipboards like the Jeweled Frame, Framed Trinkets, a corner from the Rose Frame and a piece of the Lace Rounds.

Some closeups:

Here's the video of how I put this page together, on the Blue Fern Studios Youtube channel. 

I hope you've enjoyed watching the video. And remember to subscribe to our Youtube channel and also drop again by the Blue Fern Studios blog for more inspiration from the rest of the lovely DT.

Blue Fern Products used:
Susan's Dreams
Shannon's Dreams
Dream Cards
Jeweled Frame

Until then,
happy scrapping!

Video Education. Canvas with Tiffany Solorio

Hi everyone. Tiffany here. I have a canvas to share with you. Since this is my very first post I will introduce myself first. 

My name is Tiffany. (mammatiffy). I am 29 and I live in Nevada with my wonderful husband and 2 kids. My son is 7 and my daughter is 3. I started crafting about 5 years ago. I was introduced to scrapbooking and card making through a mom in one of the playgroups I was in for my son. I instantly was obsessed. As time went by I learned more and more and was always intrigued by new techniques. 5 years later here I am. I enjoy creating and getting messy. 
I am so excited to be a part of this wonderful team and I hope I inspire you as much as so many has inspired me. 

Here is my completed canvas 

Blue Fern Studios products used: 

Ombre Dreams paper collection 
Royal Monarchs 
Wild flourish frame 
Broken Rings 

You can watch how I put it all together in the video below. 

Here are a few more pictures 

Thank you for stopping by. I love to read your comments.

Hello everybody

Leila's here again to show my projects for this month...

My layouts today are about my daughter, in the first one she had 1 year old and in the second, she had a 13! She is my sunshine!

"You shine!"

I used gesso and gelatos in this chipboard and put some strass in the frame!

Here I painted the chippie with black pen and then put some colorless relief.

BFS supplies:
- Leslie's dream paper
- Brick rings
- The optmist word set

"Pretty as a picture"

Here I used a lot of chipboards and diferent supplies to customize them...

In the title and checker bits I used liquid pearl, in the big clock, acrilic paint and distress ink!

This wonderful chippie I used acrilic paint and spray ink (applied with brush)

BFS supplies:
- Julianna's dream paper by Ombré Collection
- Checker bits
- Roman clock set - large
- Spring branch
- Pretty as a picture

So, this it's! I hope you like it! See you next month...
