March inspiration by Vera Shelemekh

Hello Blue Fern Studios fans!
I'm in a very lilac mood this month and keep on making layouts for my wedding album.
Now here is what I'm going to ispire you with...

The first project is a mix of Remnants papers on the background and In the Mood fussy cut roses
 The chipboard is embossed by Antique gold powder.
 The sentiments stamps fit perfectly
 I'm a great fan of fussy cutting and layering.
 And I never forget to add seedlings in the end of each project.
And a couple of lilies as I've already mentioned that I'm in the lilac mood today))

Blue Fern Studios products used:
Remnants -  Callaway

In the Mood - Ecstatic
Embossing powder:

The other layout is really tener and sweet. How I love the Blissful paper from In the Mood collection. There are so many ideas in my head with this heart shape.
 The chipboard frames are covered with Icicle Embossing powder and Gold glitter

 The green ribbon and a piece of lace make the layout very soft.

March layout by Yuko

Hello everyone!
Today is my turn!
First of all, I will introduce the spring layout.

【Dilight in the little things】
I go to hunt strawberries that I go every year.
Amber & Apricot and Home Spun
I mixed two kinds of collections and used it.

Flower is Apricot Blooms.
I often use this flower.Easy to use size and color!

Also find your favorite embossed powder! ! !
It is the color "IVORY".
Until now there are several kinds of white
White, pearl white, white with lame ...
But I did not have this subtle IVORY!
This is perfect color when not enough in white!
Or almighty too much color !

Cupcake chip board (Party Cakes) is cute too !
Put paper on the cup part and draw with a white pen.
Cream part is It's A GIRL pretty pink embossed powder.

HOME SPUN-Crafty/Home Sweet Home
Amber & Apricot - Flora

Embossing powder

【A MOMENT in Time】
This picture was taken at the photo studio.
It is my favorite picture.
My daughter looks smart!

This embossed powder is also wonderful!
It is Black & Gold.
It is a feeling that gold lame firmly rides in black.
So it's heavy in black. GOLD is flashy. It matches very well in the case.

Originally this paper has a pattern like this
I also made a pattern using a stamp ”Tattered Harlequin”.
If you press a black stamp, the layout will be tightened.
seedilngs is the color Meadow.

I used green embossed powder AVOCADO
 for the leaf chipboard (Rose Leaf).

This seedlings is the color Twig.
It is metallic and cool!

Rose Leaf/A MOMENT in Time/Remnants
Harvest Lilies
Embossing powder
AVOCADO/Black &Gold
Tattered Harlequin

A picture by younger sister's wedding of my husband was used!
The expression relieved for my daughter to finish
 the important duty to which she says 
when a wedding ring was carried safely.

This leaf isn't green and is gold.
Such case is gold as expected! It becomes showy, doesn't it?

A race is indispensable to make it gorgeous!
This race is my favorite as it gets really gorgeous!

Thank you for also seeing my layout this month!

March Inspiration - Megan

Hi there Blue Fern Fans :)

Today I have two layouts for you using Amber & Apricot, and two cards, one using wanderlust and one using Remnants, so lets get to it :)

For this layout, I fussy cut along both edges and popped a large chipboard sheet behind it, before adhering it on top of my second piece of patterned paper.  I could then add my chipboard popping out from along the sides.  Theres also some fussy cutting, utilising the fabulous floral graphics to add more depth to my cluster.

 The details: sprinklings of seedlings and splatters of rust colours.

Chipboard has been embossed with Mushroom Embossing Powder - I find myself reaching for this one a lot, its a fab colour!

This photo shows you all the dimension of this layout, lots and lots of layers, makes everything pop!

Products Used

Patterned Paper:
Amber & Apricot - Sunny Disposition, Chapters

Printed - Amber & Apricot

Embossing Powder:


Homespun Blooms
Wanderlust Lillies

My second layout today again uses the lovely Amber & Apricot collection.

My background this time is a mixture of stamping, paint splattering and fussy cutting -  this collection was perfect for it! ;)

Again there is a lot of dimension to this layout.  The heart has been painted,  while its till wet covered in red glitter, and then inked the edges with black archival ink.

I love how the seedlings give that extra bit of interest and pop to a project!

Products Used

Patterned Paper:
Amber & Apricot - Birdsong, Flora

Tattered Newsprint


Printed Chipboard:
Amber & Apricot


My final project for you today is two cards with two different collections.

The first card uses the Remnants Collection.  The Callaway piece of patterned paper is perfect for cards - out of the four different 6x6 patterns, I selected the two I wanted and attached them to my cardstock base.

I used two different colours of seedlings to coordinate with the green/purple colour scheme I had chosen.

The chipboard this time I left bare because I felt there was enough colour without introducing a new one.  The printed chipboard pieces created further interest popping out from my cluster and curled paper edges.

The last project for you today is a card using the Wanderlust collection.  The card was for a colleague who was leaving; young and full of energy I thought this quote was here to a T! :)

Simple but effective there was really nothing to this but I love how it turned out.  Layers of paper with layers of chipboard, some twine and a bit of paint splattering.

You can see here the amount of layering involved.
Thanks for popping by!  I'll see you next month :)
