Two layouts with the latest collections by Marie-Josée

Hello all,

Today I will show you two layouts I created with the most recent Blue Fern Studios collections, Paisley and Vine and Frolic!

"Love you my boy" layout - Paisley and Vine collection

This is my beloved rabbit, Garçon. He passed away suddenly on August 5th. :( It's the second time I lose a pet this year, so this hit me quite hard, and I wanted to do something to remember him, so I created this layout.

I used three different papers from the Paisley and Vine collection. I used the Splendor paper for my background. I cut pieces of the Pathway (teal) and Passion papers and used them under my photo.

Using a sponge, I applied gesso to some parts of my background and to the Crossing the Lines chipboard, which I cut in two.

"Wonderful" layout - Frolic collection

The second layout features me! :) I deciced to challenge myself and use a very busy paper for the background, something I don't do often. I used three different papers from the Frolic collection: Mercantile for the background, and Adorn (red) and Secretary (yellow) under my photo.

I also used the Butterfly Damask chipboard. I cut it in two and put one part above my photo and one part under.

I altered the chipboard and the background with gesso, applied with a sponge, and various inks and mists.


  1. Beautiful pages. I'm sorry for the loss of your beautiful bunny.

  2. Two gorgeous pages and I am so sorry you lost your gorgeous bunny!

  3. I started following this blog recently and just love every single project. Can't seem to find a local retailer for the chipboard. Any suggestions? LOVE This layout!!!

    1. Where do you live? Maybe you can email Blue Fern at to enquire about locations close to you?
