Lots of Blue Fern Studios goodness with Bente.

Hi there friends of Blue Fern Studios.
 I am so happy you came to see what I have prepared for you this time :-) Winter is now definitely upon us and what more perfect collection to use for those crisp winter photos than the beautiful Vintage Christmas.

My first page showcases a couple of older photos of my youngest daughter as I wanted to scrap pictures with snow .This year it hasn't snowed yet :-) Sorry the pictures are not great. It's pretty dark up here in the Nordic countries at the moment :-) 

I used the Holiday Vine chipboard and the title Sparkle is from the Winter Titles set.

Here are a couple of close ups:

I used the Petal embossing powder as well as the Pyrite glitter to embellish my page.

My next project is an alterd frame. It was so much fun to make.

 I painted one of the  words from the Delight set and also one of the Vintage Labels. 
The perforated arrow is from the Directions set. The paper collection is Autumn Anthology.

To top off this creation I used the beautiful Ornate Shelf as something similar to a roof.

This next layout you may recognize as it was part of this months sketch reveal  HERE.

Even here I used Vintage Christmas. The French Ironwork-chipboard behind my photos is such a stunning piece! This time I painted it gold and used one of the Blue Fern Studios Texture stamps
 to emboss it.

 I used a mixture of hnd made and bought flowers.
Of course I used the Vintage Christmas papers even for the flowers! :-)

And then my last  page for today,also with the latest collection and some more fabulous chipboard!

I used the Chain link panel ,just lightly covered in gesso and the Framed Winter Words with some added glitter. Here is a closer look at some details :

Again I used a mixture of store bought and handmade flowers using the beautiful red Deck the Halls sheet

I love the look of the chipboard panel peeking out from behind the beautiful paper :-)

That was all for today, well done if you made it all the way to the end!!

I wish you all a wonderful wek end. I knowI am really looking forward to some free time!
Thanks for looking!!


  1. Your pages are all gorgeous - and your altered frame is beautiful as well!

  2. I've been burned out with winter lay outs for awhile, but you have inspired me. The St. Lucia page is especially gorgeous (love the chip board embellishment) and reminded me that I have a stash of toddler St. Lucia pics I never got quite right. Are your candles live or battery operated (mine were felted)?

    1. Thank you for the lovely words.So glad to hear that you feel inspired by my pages. The Sta Lucia celebration is quite a biggie in our house (and Sweden ;-D). When young the Lucia normally use battery lights but from the age of maybe 11-12 we use real candles. In church during the celebration there is always a representative from the fire department just un case...
