Sharon's July Layouts!

Hi everyone!  It's hard to believe that it is July already!   We are in the middle of a heat wave here in Pennsylvania - we have a high heat/humidity advisory for the next few days, so it's a perfect time to stay indoors scrap! 

Today I am excited to share my July layouts with you . . .

Layout #1: One Cute Chick

I went straight to the beautiful "Tattered Walls" collection.  This time, I used "The Carolina Room" as the basis for my page.  I utilized both sides:
It's such gorgeous paper, I knew exactly which photos I wanted to use for my layout.  The sweet pictures of my daughter, Anne, were taken on Mother's Day, 2009.  Every time I look at her smile, my heart melts!

Back to scrapping . . . I really enjoyed using the "One Cute Chick" chipboard and embossed it with "Pixie Dust" embossing powder.  

It's a DREAM to work with!!!  I also used one of the birds from the "A Spring Day" collection and embossed it with the sparkly "Goldenrod" embossing powder!

Here are is a close up:

And a different view:

Flowers: Garden Blooms, Moody Florals
Seedlings: Gold Nugget
Glitter: Solar Flare, Gilded Rose
Lace: Ivory Braided Trim, Lace 1, Lace 6, Lace 10
Ephemera: Tattered Walls

Layout #2: Blessed

I already had this photo of my daughters, Katie and Anne, in mind when I started making this page.  This picture was taken back in November of 2013 for our Christmas card.  Once again, I thought the "Tattered Walls" collection was perfect for y treasured picture! 

I used the flip side of "The Garage:"

Isn't it cool that all of these papers are named after a room?  I love that!

I also used "The Powder Room" to back my photo and to punch out my snowflakes:

I embossed the "Blessed" and "Christmas Tree" chipboard pieces with the amazing "Ivory" embossing powder.  I have to mention that I have never found better embossing powder than that made by Blue Fern Studios!  The Ivory EP is wonderful and no others match up to it!  And because it's a neutral, I use it all the time, and now I have to order more . . .

Here are some close ups of my layout:

I really had fun decorating my tree with pieces from Lace 9C!!!

Paper: Tattered Walls "The Garage," "The Powder Room"
Chipboard: Christmas Tree, "Blessed"
Embossing Powder: Ivory
Flowers: Courtship Roses, Harvest Lilies, Late Winter Lilies

Lace: Lace 9C, Lace 10

Layout #3:  Love This Moment

I totally enjoyed making this last page using a photo of the group of children that were adopted with Anne when we got together at Pearl S Buck for an adoption picnic.  This "travel group" photo was taken in the summer of 2009!

I adore the Homespun collection and thought it was perfect for this photo.  
I used the flip side of "Hospitality:"

I altered these chipboard pieces:  


and "Love This Moment:"

This time I embossed both pieces with "Taupe" embossing powder, then to change things up a bit, I distressed each piece.  

Here are some close ups:

I also enjoyed embossed directly on my page using the "Christmas Collage" stamp set and "Pearl" embossing powder.

Tattered Walls Layouts by Jessica

Hi everyone and happy July!  I have a few layouts to share with you this month using the newest Tattered Walls Collection.  On with the show!


My background paper is "The Powder Room" from the Tattered Walls Collection.  Under the photo I used a piece of "The Reading Room" paper painted brown around the edges.

I used a lot of different flowers from various sets on my layout.  To begin, I took the pink flower from the Summer Blossoms collection and took the two pieces apart.  I then had two buds to use for my project - I just folded them and put them in place.  The flower with the blue gem in the middle is from the new Spring Blooms set.  The off-white flower is from the Fresh Florals set.  I removed the stamens, added a gem and put the new Aquamarine Seedlings around it.

The large blue flower is from the Heartland Blossoms set and the pink petals under it is half of a flower from the Spring Florals set.  The vine you see around the picture is from the Wanderlust Vine set spritzed with a shimmering brown spray mist.  I used the Garden Daisies chipboard behind my flowers and embossed it with Ivory embossing powder.

I used various pieces of the Tattered Walls Ephemera around my layout for interest.  The title Love is from the Adore, Love, Cherish chipboard set.  I first embossed it in Ivory, then I used the Crackle Textures stamp to emboss the crackles with the new Sparkling Navy embossing powder.  I did the same thing with the new Glam Frame behind the picture.

The background was just created by using texture paste with a stencil.  Then I used the Crackle Textures stamp with Sparkling Navy embossing powder for more texture.  I then added a blue spray mist over it.

Crackle Textures



For my second layout I used the back side of the Tattered Walls Apartment B paper.  It is difficult to see under all of the paints and gesso, but I used strips of the orange Tattered Walls The Reading Room paper.  As matting under the picture, I used an old scrap piece of the Amber and Apricot Chapters paper with the London Chronicles stamp.

The white and peach roses are from the Happy Roses set.  I added some Mocha Glitter on the tips.  The title "Hello" is a piece of the Tattered Walls Ephemera.  I also added a couple of pieces of Lace 3B.  Around the picture area, I used the Crackle Textures stamp with the new Sparkling Navy embossing powder for interest.  In addition, I used the Tattered Newsprint stamp with black solvent ink around the white gesso areas.

Next, you can see the Paprika seedlings that I added around the picture.  I also put some Silver Seedlings around these areas because they match well with the picture.  The rose buds are the two pieces of one of the Christmas Blooms flowers tucked under the roses.

Under the picture, I have tucked in a few pieces of the Tattered Walls Ephemera.  The chipboard I used is the new A Spring Day chipboard that I cut into 3 pieces then I embossed the pieces with the new Azul embossing powder.  Finally, below the Silver Seedlings, I added some Clear seedlings.

Products Used:

Tattered Walls - Apartment B
Amber and Apricot - Chapters

Tattered Newsprint




Finally, my last layout uses The Powder Room paper from the Tattered Walls Collection.  To soften the background, I put on two coats of diluted gesso.  I chose to use the Journey chipboard title at the bottom.  All of my chipboard was painted with a blue paint first, then I used Pearl embossing powder to emboss the pieces.

Next to the photo, I chose to use two pieces from the new Classic Mini Frames set (painted blue then embossed with Pearl embossing powder).

The blue flowers are from the Chesterville Blooms set.  The new flowers with the blue gems are from the Spring Blooms set.  For the stenciled areas, I used clear crackle texture paste and added Blue Ice glitter over the areas.  I used the crackle texture paste so that when I painted around the stenciled areas, the paint would repel from the glittered areas.  You can see around my stenciled area that I used the music notes from the For the Birds stamp set embossed with our new Azul embossing powder.

And lastly, you can see the Tattered Walls Ephemera that I used under my picture.

July Inspiration by France Ringuette

Hi fellow Blue Fern Fans, today will be my last series for Blue Fern Studio. Due to some unexpected work changes, I am required to do lots of business travel, this is has the impact of reducing my craft time and I've had to make the heartbreaking decision to leave the amazing Blue Fern Studio creative team. I hope this last production will inspire you with the amazing Blue Fern Studio Products.

Layout #1: Travel

My first layout this month is inspired by the amazing Tattered Wall grunge feel paper of The Garage. It is amazingly perfect for making boy layouts, I just fell in Love with this paper.

Have you seen this new Azul embossing powder? It is spectacular. Perfect mix of turquoise and silver.

The ephemera are so much fun to use, it makes the perfect small elements around your picture.

Embossing Powder: Azur

Wanderlost Words & Frolic Mesh


Layout #2: Love

Oh what can I say, it's so easy to be inspired when you get the chance to work with an amazing baby photo like my friend's daughter, she is just adorable. Happy Accident remains one of my favorite collections. I love the detailed print on this background. On this layout, I wanted to created a soft vintage feeling so I opted to play with lots of flowers and embossed chipboard.

Frame chipboards are my favorites, I love using them under my pictures to create dimension. Embossed in rose gold, this one gives the softness I was looking for with a twist of shimmer.

Touched of Lace add to the delicate feeling of the page

I love this flower with a pearl center, just perfect. I also enjoy adding lace in my layering of the flowers.

On this dangle chipboard, I opted to use 2 different embossing powders : Baby Pink & 14 karat

Layout #3: Dreamer

Sweet Sweet Sweet baby, I just love this amazing picture of my friend's son Jack. This layout was just too fun to do. 

The Tranquility collection was just what I needed, it breaths calm and tranquil, perfect for this baby picture.

The Widget stamp is so much fun for a boy layout, I just enjoy the gears. I also enjoy embossing on my layout,

A bit a lace, a few flowers and the delicate ornaments are a perfect touch for this baby boy layout.
