The Envelope Please......

Today we have several winners to announce.  First up are the winners from our July Contest.  In case you forgot, in July we asked you to give us some suggestions for chipboard titles.  Wow! - we were amazed by all the great titles you came up with.  As promised, we will select one winner from the blog posts, and one winner from the Facebook posts.  

Even though we are announcing two winners today, we will be using a LOT more of your suggestions, so keep an eye out for new titles and sets of titles.  We may be using yours.

So, here are our winners.  We will be making these titles first:

From the blog: our winner is Aggie who suggested some school related words/titles such as:  
You've Got This, A+, Learning Something New, Reading, Studying, Test Time, 
First Day, Graduation, Hitting the Books, School, Elementary, Middle and High School, 
Favorite Teacher, various subjects (English, Math, Science, Art, History etc), Recess, etc. 

From Facebook: our winner is Marilyn Hughes who suggested "Forever Young".

Congratulations Aggie and Marilyn!  As winners you will receive a prize package from Blue Fern Studios that will include the title(s) that you suggested.  Please send an e-mail, within the next 7 days, to {valerie(at)bluefernstudios(dot)com} to claim your prize.

What awesome bright colors against this background!

In August, we asked you to use one of our 3 most recent collections: Tranquility, Attic Charm, or Seaside Cottage.  We would like to feature one amazing layout from each of these collections:

The first layout was created by Beatriz (B-arte) of Spain.  This vintage style layout is so elegant and we love the texture she has created!

Next up, we have a layout using the Attic Charm collection.  Kylie Kingham (Paper Sweet Pea) created this gorgeous layout.  You will also see that she has several pieces of Blue Fern chipboard scattered throughout.  Kylie has a process video which you can view HERE at YouTube.

And for all you dog-lovers, our third feature of the month uses paper from the Seaside Cottage collection.  
Vija Anton created a beautiful layout using this photo of their Golden Retriever, Cooper.  What an amazing layout that really captures the feel of the beach.!

Congratulations to all of you who were one of our features this month.  

And a big thank-you to all who participated in the August challenge.  There were so many wonderfully creative layouts.  You never fail to make our job of selecting featured layouts a difficult one.  
You have used Blue Fern products beautifully!

We sure hope you find some time in September to join us for our Mood Board challenge.  
You can find all the details in our sidebar.
