Memoires & Serendipity Inspiration from Nicole Doiron

Hello everyone!

I am thrilled to be back today to share with you more of my Blue Fern Studios creations, and I'm even more excited to showcase the stunning new collection Mémoires on 2 of these projects.

Let's start with this layout that was inspired by the October sketch challenge.

This is the fabulous sketch designed by Michelle Singh.
Here's to hoping that you will be inspired and play along with us this month!

First, I created the mixed media background on this page by stamping the Cracked texture stamp numerous times and then creating a vertical design with ivory acrylic paint and Garnet Imagine Ink embossing powder.  I chose the True Story title that I covered with Ebony powder.

Below you see one of the beautiful new chipboard pieces coordinating with Mémoires.  I used a layer of the glittery Lucky embossing powder on the Grand Ornement and then tamed it down a bit with a few different shades of distress ink.  I added a Jeweled Page Dangle covered in Black Sand powder which I both absolutely love as well as a Formal Corner in Ebony.

Blue Fern Studios has released some new flower sets which are all exquisite.  Below you see a green Mémoires Bloom combined with Seaside Lily and Courtship Blooms.

Next, this layout is a little bit more soft in 'nature' (pun unintended), using a combination of the gorgeous Photographic Record and Remember When papers.  I love the colour palette which is so versatile, perfect for any season photos.

I so love the Ginger's Poppies that I have lined along the bottom right corner.  I thought that the Melon colour would suit them very well.  The word Patience was covered with a mixture of Sage and Lucky.

Attic Charm Daisies and Harvest Lilies make up the pretty pastel flower clusters.

In the upper left corner of my page, framing my picture, are a Swirled Floral Corner which I separated in two pieces and a Whimsy Flourish.

I really love the quote "Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience" and thought it was perfect for my page.  This pretty flower was photographed from my mother in law's beautiful garden!

For my last project today, I decided I would give you a double treat in a double-page layout!

You see on this page my favorite papers from the Serendipity collection.  I must say, these papers look as if they have been designed especially for me!  Soft flowery patterns in teal and red, ivory book prints and gorgeous vintage romance... absolutely stunning!

This double spread needed a big and bold title so I used the Remember Moments piece covered in Ruby. 

You see here the elegant Attic Stairs covered in Ebony.

I framed both sides of my layout with pieces of the Blue Fern Frame and I added an Ironwork Accent piece on the left side. The red Attic Charm Glitter Roses seemed ideal for this page and you can see that I also added a bit of Watermelon glitter onto my background.

I added favorite photos of my boyfriend and I throughout our 10 years together.
