April Sketch Challenge Winner and our Featured Layouts!

It's time for us to announce the winner of our April Sketch Challenge, but we would first like to take a moment to thank all of you who entered the challenge.  You sure do make us look good when you use Blue Fern products!

The winner of the April challenge is..............

entry #3 which belongs to Jessika of Sweden. 
Jessika, you have won a prize package of Blue Fern Chipboard!  
Please send me an e-mail, within the next 7 days, 
at {valerie(at)bluefernstudios(dot)com} to claim your prize.
Here's the beautiful layout Jessika created using one of our most popular 
chipboard sets, the Shabby Brick Bits!

Each month we like to feature a few layouts from our sketch challenge 
because we LOVE to show off how you use our products!  It just so happens that all three of the gorgeous layouts below were created by women from Australia. 

The first layout we are featuring this month was created by Alison Bevis.  Alison has used paper from the Ombre Dreams Collection (Shannon's Dream).  The large chipboard piece is a portion of the Industrial Corner, which she altered by heat embossing with several colors, and then adding mist.  What a beautiful look she achieved!  Her title, Love, is from the "Good Vibes" set of chipboard words.  There is absolutely so much to love about this layout, including the precious photo!

Mandie Meier used a gorgeous photo of her daughter for her layout.  The background paper is from the Blue Fern Ombre Dreams Collection.  Mandie accented the layout using the Tattered Diamond Bits chipboard piece as well as the "Love" chipboard piece from the Adore, Love, Cherish set of words.   This layout is so soft and sweet and beautiful!

Lizzy C has done some fabulous fussy cutting using our beautiful Montage Paper Collection.  She added the stunning Wild Flourish Frame and some of the Turkish Bits chipboard pieces to complete the look.  The way Lizzy altered the frame is nothing short of amazing.  We can't think of a better way to show off Blue Fern products!

Congratulations to our winner, Jessika, and the three very talented ladies whose layouts we have featured this month.  We hope you will take a moment to congratulate them!

Our May sketch has been posted.  You can find a link in the right sidebar.  
We hope to see lots of amazing layouts again this month.
