January projects by Wendy Scholten

Hi everyone,

I'm so excited and thankful to be in this talented designteam for Blue Fern Studios and share my projects with you today!
My name is Wendy Scholten also known as MySweetCreativeLife and i'm 34 years old.
I am married to Peter for 5 years and we have a little girl, she is 3 years and is my biggest inspiration. I live in Kwintsheul, a small village in the Netherlands.
I work on a daycare for mentally challenged people for almost 14 years now.
I started scrapbooking about 10 years ago and love to try new products to see wat i can make with them. My style is romantic but i also like to use mixed media products.

You can find me here on social media:

I have 3 projects for you so let's start with the first one.

"Baby it's cold outside"

My first page is made with the gorgeous Vintage Christmas collection, i made this photo of our daughter on our last vacation and i loved it so much i knew i had to use this one.
The Christmas papers are so versatile, i decided to make a winter layout instead of a Christmas layout
(also because our daughter didn't want me to make a photo of her in her Christmas outfit, lol)

I used the Auld Lange Syne paper which i cut in half and switched the bottom and top so the flowers ended up in the middle and placed it on the backside of the Wonderland paper. I used lace to cover up the edges of the papers in the middle.

I used a stencil and moddeling paste with glitter to create texture for the background, when that was dry i used the forever stamp and some ink to stamp some images over the moddeling paste.
I  framed my photo with a piece of burlap and some cheesecloth underneath it.

The chipboard pieces were all treated with white gesso and then i used Snow and Silver Bells embossingpowders which i mixed together in different amounts.

For the Blooming curls is used more snow then silver bells and for the Winter Flakes the opposite. The title Baby it's cold outside was embossed with only silver bells and some ice paste and i cut it in pieces to fit my photo.

I used several collections of flowers, the Winter Lilies and Christmas Blooms. To finish it i used a few berries and embellishments from my own stash and put some glitter on some places.

Then for number two:

"Follow your Heart"

For my second page i used the beautiful Heartland papers, chipboard and flowers.
I used a stencil, some moddeling paste and the Forever stamp for my background

I used the backside of the Red Rose Ball paper and 3 of the calling cards of the Love Notes paper which i placed under my photo to give it some depth. I also fussy cut some of the flower bits from the Sweet on You paper and tucked them between my photo and the calling cards.

I treated my chipboard first with some white gesso and for the Follow Your Heart title i used Vintage Gold embossingpowder, for the Spirit of Heartland chipboard i used oatmeal embossingpowder.

The Heartland Flowers are gorgeous so i knew i had to use those on my layout and some of the courtship roses. To finish it i used a few embellishments of my own stash.

And the last one for this month, number three:

"You have stolen my Heart"

For my third layout i also used the Heartland papers, flowers and chipboard.
I used the backside of the Love Song Serenade Paper and used nothing more than a doily stencil and some moddeling paste for the background.

I really love lace so that's what i used for the background texture together with the Blooming Flourishes chipboard which i treated with white gesso and then used Sand and Sea Embossing powder.

The Heartland XOXO chipboard was treaten with It's a girl Embossig powder.

I cut a small piece of it to make a cluster at the bottom of my page with some lace and flowers.

I used the Heartland Colection flowers as well as the coutship roses and Christmas blooms.
And topped it off with some Glitter and some embellishments of my own stash.
