3 Projects w/Erin Blegen

Hi, everyone! Erin Blegen here to get you motivated to dig out your chipboard and get creating! I have three different types of projects for you showcasing several Blue Fern Studios chipboard pieces and I'm going to walk you through how I was inspired by them :)

Let's get started!

"Climb Up"
I really wanted to put to use some of the "longer" pieces such as the 12" Calligraphic Border and the 12" Page Chains.

 I pieced them apart to suit my project. 

I especially love how the Calligraphic Border placed vertically pulls the eye to my son's tree climbing scene :)

Blue Fern Studios Products Used:

Calligraphic Border

Page Chains

Fancy Fob Watch

"Laughter" {Tag}
For this tag, I was inspired by the empty spaces within the chipboard pieces. All 3 pieces used here were backed with paper, filled with glossy accents and then a variety of beads.

Blue Fern Studios Products Used:

Brigitte Butterfly Set

Vintage Keys

Ironwork Accents

"Blessings" {Card}
I wanted to create a "stacked" look with this card, so after layering my papers I proceeded to layer my chipboard pieces as well. I used a chicken wire stamp to decorate the bottom layer before applying a turquoise chalk ink to the Vintage Lock and topping it with glossy accents, and then finally randomly applied some ink to the title piece.
