January Inspiration by Debbie Burns

Hi everyone!  

I'm so excited to be back designing for Blue Fern Studios!
I love designing with all of the fabulous products!
I live in Maryland, and am an Assistant Project Manager for an Interior General Contractor.
My job keeps me extremely busy, but I love it.  I have two adult children, a son and daughter and one precious dog.  I've been scrapbooking for 18 years and my style has evolved over the years.

You can find me on:

Today I have 3 layouts to share using the new Remnants collection.  Love this new collection!

"You Make Me Smile"
I applied some masking and light misting to the Devonshire background paper.

Lots of beautiful flowers from Remnants Blooms, Soft Blossoms and Tranquility Lilies.  I cut apart the Branch Set chipboard and embossed it with a mixture of Avocado and Seafoam, and then applied some Meadow Seedlings.  I placed some Bohemian Flowers embossed with Pink Dust and sprinkled with Pink Pearl Glitter beneath some of the flowers.  I placed some Lace 4 all around my picture.

To the left of this picture you can see part of the Corner Flourish,  embossed with Taupe and Pink Dust as well as some of the printed chipboard pieces.  Beneath the pink flower I placed a Leafy Page Accent chipboard piece embossed the same as the Corner Flourish and added some Tickled Seedlings.  I used the same mixture of Taupe and Pink Dust on the title.

"You Are My Inspiration"
I applied some stamping to the Vignette background paper using the Remnants Collage, Essential Textures and Tattered Newsprint stamps and applied some light purple mist.

Lots of layering using the Highgate, Callaway and Mini Remnants papers and pieces from the printed chipboard. I used the Fading Blooms Chipboard, embossed Garnet to the left of my picture.  I added flowers from both the Remnants Flowers and Remnants Blooms, two that I sprayed purple.  I added some Red Wine Glitter to the dark red mini roses.  Beneath the flower cluster I placed a piece from the Leafy Page Accents embossed with Iridescent Gray. I randomly added some Mauve and Burgendy Seedlings.

I cut apart the Frame Collage and used it in different areas on the layout.  I embossed it with a mixture of Plum and Garnet embossing powders.  Beneath the picture I used some of the printed chipboard.

I lightly embossed the title with Garnet and Magenta Embossing Powers.

"Find Joy In The Journey"
I lightly misted the Westfield paper and added lots of layering under the picture using Mini Remnants paper. I used flowers from the Remnants Blooms, which I sprayed light brown along with some Memories Blooms, Tranquil Blooms and Courtship Blooms.

I embossed the Thistle Spray and Blooming Flourish with a mixture of Rusted Roof and Nutmeg Embossing Powders and added Mustard, Paprika and Twig Seedlings.  To the right I placed a piece from the printed chipboard.

The Leafy Ring was embossed Nutmeg and the title has a mixture of Nutmeg and Rusted Roof Embossing Powders.  The Tattered Butterfly was embossed with the same mixture with some added In The Navy Embossing Powder.
