Remnants and Apricot and Blooms Inspirations by Jennifer Jacques

Good Morning all Blue Fern Studios fans!

I'm thrilled to present my first layouts as a member of this beautiful team.

First, let me introduce myself.

I'm Jennifer, Pinkypie on social medias.
 I live in Quebec, Canada with my two beautiful girls of 17 and 10 years old, who are my main inspiration, and with the love of my life, Mike,  and his son.

I've been obsessed with scrapbooking since, at least, 12 years now.  
My scrapbooking style  is all about softness, clustering and romance.  

Since I have used chipboards on my layouts, i've had a crush on Blue Fern Studios products.
That's why I'm here loll!
A dream come true !

You can find me on


Hope to inspire you all year long here on the  Blue Fern Studios blog!


And now, here are my three inspiration layouts for January.

Let's start with the first one.
  I used the beautiful new REMANTS collection products.

I first primed my background with clear gesso.  The background paper here is Remnants "Bloomsbury".  Also used "Mini-Remnants" paper in layers under my picture.

Then, I stamped here and there with brown ink and the Remnants Collage stamp 
on the backgroud paper.

See that beautiful pale pink Remnants blooms 😍😍

In order to place my chipboard title around my picture, I chose to cut it in two sections.  
I have embossed them with the Ivory embossing powder.  
I also placed under my picture some pieces of the 
Quatrefoil panel on which I used some red metallic paint.

Here, I printed the "Beautiful" word in the Distressed stamps set on some shrink plastic.  
Thanks to Tartine Peluche who remind me of this oldie stuff in my stash 😉  
It really makes a great effect, no?
It is placed on the white  Spring florals flower...

You can see on the next picture that I have used several colors of embossing powders on my chipboards in this  layout!  
I really fell in love with the green ones for the leaves.
Here is Avocado embossing powder on the Rose leaves chipboard and 
Forest embossing powder on the Thistle Spray chipboard.

Can you see the subtle tint of Green Ivory embossing powder on the 
Bohemian flower chipboard piece here, on the lace?  So soft ...

Finally, I have used some printed Remnants chipboards,some Burgundy seedlings and some other flowers from my stash to finish this layout.

Hope you like this one 🙈

Now, my second Remnants collection layout.

My background here is the beautiful "Callaway" paper.  
Also primed it with clear gesso.  
Under my picture, "Chancery lane" and b-side of "Mayfair" paper.

Next, to make my focal point, I placed my pic on some parts of Quilted page panel chipboard.

 I've used Black Sand embossing powder on this one and really like the 2 tones effect with beautiful "sandy" texture.  You can see on this next picture that I have paint in black a butterfly that I have cut from some Flutter page dangles chipboard piece, also add some mists. 
 After that, I embossed it with Ebony embossing powder and the Penned Flourishes stamp.  
See the Remnants blooms that I have sprayed also to coordinate  the colors of my layout.

The Arrow word " Sweet" with  Ebony embossing powder as the title: simple as that 😏
Can also see the heartbreaking white Remnants florals.  Love those ones...
Some printed Remnants chipie and Garden Blooms too.

As embellishments, I used here and there some vellum circles on witch I embossed the
Texture circles stamps with the Ebony powder.

Here, I just left the Branch set chipboard pieces natural cause it matched my layout that way loll.
Some Tickled and Purple haze seedlings and white drops as final touches.

For my last layout this month, I chose the Amber and Abricot collection 
which was one of my favorite last year.

Here, I used two papers as the background: "Birdsong" and a piece of the b-side "Yesterday" paper that I've placed in the middle of the first one.  
Primed them with clear gesso, then add some texture with modeling paste through a stencil.
  Finally, I've done some watercoloring with yellow mists and the background was done.

I've just used the Amber and Abricot printed chipboards here.  
Some chipie under my picture and two borders below.

Here is a chipboard from Serendpity words1 as the title.  
Embossed it with the Hot cocoa embossing powder.
Another "glittery" color that I've fallen in love with 😍

Some random stamping with brown ink and the Honey bits stamp.

You can see above some beautiful flowers from 
Fresh floral (ivory) and Apricot blooms (white) kits.
Below, Homespun blooms (brown) and white Apricot blooms again.


After that, I've made my usual final touches, some white drops and add a mix of 
Paprika and Twig seedlings.
