October Sketch Challenge Winner and our Featured Layouts

This month you treated us to a large number of entries for our sketch challenge and we thank you.  We love seeing how each of you use our products and our sketch together.

First, we would like to announce the winner of this month's prize package from Blue Fern Studios.  The lucky winner is:

Since we had so many layouts this month (and they were all stunning!), we decided to feature more than three.  In no particular order, here are six layouts that caught our eye, for various reasons:
Bec of Australia combined paper from our Ombre Dreams and Montage collections with several Blue Fern chipboard pieces to create this layout with lovely soft colors.  Bec says it's one of her favorite layouts, and we can certainly see why!

 This layout, created by Fena, of the United States, really stands out with the vibrant pops of color.  Fena used paper from our Ombre Dreams collection, combined with our very popular Bits of Honey chipboard and finished it off with our Wonderful title.  

Scrapbooking is all about memory keeping and that's what Linda Pekrul had in mind when she combined this sweet photo with Blue Fern paper (Montage collection) and chipboard.  After the recent loss of her father-in-law, she created this layout to display at the memorial table.  What a precious way to remember him.  We are sorry for your loss, Linda.

The next layout was created by Amy Prior who says, "I just love Blue Fern Studios products so much they are definitely my new favorite go to brand for papers and chipboard I am a little obsessed to say the least he he".  Amy used paper from our Montage collection, altered it with some mist, and added a Blue Fern chipboard title to this colorful layout.

 Sandi Clarkson of the United States began with paper from our Ombre Dreams collection.  For her chipboard pieces (Circle Flourish and title from our Optimists set), she simply painted the chipboard with a coat of clear gesso, and inked it with chalk ink.  What a beautiful look!

Paivis of Sweden also started her layout with paper from our Ombre Dreams collection and the Checkered Bits chipboard.  Paivis loves Blue Fern paper because it is thick enough to use for mixed media projects.  We like that about our paper, too!

Our November sketch challenge has been posted on our blog.  You can use the link in the top right sidebar to take you directly to the sketch.  We look forward to seeing how you use our products with the sketch.
