Every Moment Matters Scrapbook Layout using Remnants collection

Hey Blue Fern Fans it's Phyllis again with a 12x12 scrapbook layout!  I used papers from the beautiful Remnants collection!  

I did alittle of everything on this layout from diecutting,  mixed media,  stenciling,  heat embossing and fussing cutting.

I gave the background sheet a nice coat of clear gesso then I used white sand texture paste thru a stencil and sprinkled embossing powders Taupe & Goldilocks in various around the white sand.  I heat embossed it and then added touches of acrylic paint in a dark lavender to give it some depth. 

I glued the different sizes of flowers together and I also did some fussy cutting of a flower.
I used some cheesecloth and then started to play with my design.

I heat embossed the Daisy Oval Frame with Goldilocks and Nutmeg.  

I added a Butterfly and Every Moment Matters from the chipboard sticker sheet,  I love these they add a nice dimension to your project!
I also added some of Blue Fern Studios Flowers for a pop of color!  
I added some Gold beads to the diecut flowers and added sprinkles of Mauve and Golden Nugget seedlings,  small & large sequins and art stones along my design,  these are some of my favorite finishing touches I love to add to any project!

To complete this layout I did some flicks of white acrylic paint around the entire layout.

 Hey Blue Fern Fans Phyllis here to share a beautiful Tri-Fold card and box!  I used the gorgeous *A Romantic Life* collection.  

The box measures 5.5" by 7.5" and is 1" deep.  I decorated it with *Frilly Frame* chipboard,  Lace and layers of diecuts I cutout with this collection.   I also added alittle bit of glitter,  flowers, twine and fiber.

I used diecuts from the Ephemera pack to add layers with my diecut outs from the collection.  I also added flowers from 2 different Blue Fern Studios floral packs.  

This card would be perfect for any wedding or anniversary celebration!

Shabby Banner with Passages

 Hello Blue Fern Fans,  it's Phyllis here with a beautiful Shabby Banner using the Gorgeous Passages collection!  This time I used papers from the 8x8 collection.

I cut out 1 Pendant banner with Intercontinental paper,  one fishtail banner with Notes from Abroad and the last Pendant banner I cut out used from the back of Notes from Abroad paper.  I punched holes where I wanted my lace to go so this could be hung on a wall.  I also punched holes on the bottom so I could hang tassels to give it a fun feature.

I did lots of diecutting for my flowers,  leaves,  tags, oval shape and doily shape.  I used cheesecloth and fiber for more texture.  

Another fun embellishment to add to your projects is buttons,  they add a nice texture and finishing touch to any project.  I also used the Itinerary sheet to each banner piece.
Using the Intercontinental sheet I fussy cut out a couple hot air balloons and also a couple of the beautiful butterflies.

So get your metal diecuts out and have fun creating a beautiful banner using the Gorgeous Passages collection!  Be sure to share your projects at Blue Fern Fanatics on Facebook we'd love to see your projects!

Thank you for stopping by!
Happy Creating!!!

Shabby Layout using Passages Collection

Hello Blue Fern Fans,  Phyllis here to share my first DT project using the New Gorgeous and fun Passages collection!  I did alot of diecutting for my layering on this layout.  

I started my background stamping with Mayhem Textures & Scripted Medley on Itinterary paper then used texture paste thru a stencil from Finnabair.  Before the texture paste dried I sprinkled Dusty Rose and Solar Flare Glitter.

For the flowers I had some diecuts and layered some of the flowers for dimension.   I also have some doily diecuts for layering.  I used papers from Panorama,  Travelgue,  Inter Continental,  Homeward Bound and Bucket List.

I also cut out some tags and leaves using dies for added layers.  Once I had all my diecutting finished I started laying out my design.  I did some photo matting  

I did some fussy cutting from Panorama paper and for the flowers I added buttons for the center.  

I cut the chipboard in half and used that to frame my photo.  I also used some twine and Lace for added texture.

For the finishing touch on my layout I added Dusty Rose and Solar Flare glitter and Mauve seedlings along with art stones.

I love these papers from Passages,  they're so fun,  the designs and colors are gorgeous!
I hope you have a chance to grab this paper collection soon!  
Thank you for stopping by!
Happy Creating!

Bouquet of Dreams

Hi there! Welcome to my blog. It is hard to believe that we are already at the Labor Day long weekend! Where did the summer go? I have another project for you today done with the Glory of the Garden collection.
 I've mixed two collections on this layout. Radiance and Glory of the Garden.

I did some background work with a stencil some molding paste and mists. I also added some gold beads and some wishing bubbles from 49 & Market.
 I used the paper Glory of the Garden for my background and then tore along all sides of the paper Effervescence from the Radiance collection and added it on top. I then tore two sheets My Sanctuary(Glory of the Garden) and a sheet from the Frolic collection into strips and placed them across the middle. I tucked some lace in between the layers for added texture.
 I used the chipboard package called Bouquet of Dreams and heat embossed the top and bottom flourishes with Raspberry, Sage, Green Ivory, Avocado and Glistening Sand embossing powder.
I used the same technique on both. 
Tucked in among the flowers is another piece of chipboard done in the same color scheme as the other two chipboard pieces. I used a combination of Prima and 49 & Market flowers. I also added some gold beads to the white flower to give it more character. You can also see a silver charm from the Chitter Chatter pack and some Art Stones from Prima.
I tried to balance the page out with similar flowers and another charm on the left side of the page.
My title also comes from the chipboard pack Bouquet of Dreams. I used Glistening Sand and Raspberry Embossing powder to decorate this.

And that is the end! I really like these papers in this collection! It is also fun to mix and match different collections. In fact I think my next layout will include several collection! A challenge if you will. I hope to see you then!
All the best! :)
