Hello Blue Fern Crafty Friends! Can you believe it's almost the end of May, where has the time gone??? I was really hoping to get more crafting time in! I dug into my stash and grabbed Blue Fern Studios beautiful collection A Romantic Life and created a layout.

Hello! Happy Friday Blue Fern Fans! I have a simple layout to share using Life's Vignettes, this collection is so gorgeous it really is hard to decide which papers to use and more challenging how not to cut through the beautiful designs! I did struggle with choosing the first paper and the papers I would cut through so I decided to try to keep this layout very simple.I started with tearing the bottom right corner and top left corner using pink cardstock behind where I tore the paper. Then I distressed the edges of the papers.
I grabbed Blue Fern Studios Lace and layered it to start my design. I did some fussing cutting and diecutting to create layers.
For the matting I added pieces from the ephemera pack and also added crocheted doilies from my stash, I think this must be the first layout I've created without any dimensional flowers at least it's been awhile.
For a little pop of color I added seed beads and seedlings with glitter.
Sometimes your projects don't have to crazy amounts of embellishments and it will be the perfect amount of layers and embellishments so the collection shines through.
We love to see your projects so be sure to share them on Facebook at Blue Fern Fantics!
Keep calm and craft on!

Introducing Life's Vignettes!
Life happens in bits and pieces - a chance meeting here, a kindness there, a visit with a loved one; these are the vignettes of our lives. From the French word vigne (‘vine’), it signifies a detail of the big story, illuminated for effect. The essence of papercrafting is showcasing the cherished meaning in our lives. To make ...vignettes!
Blue Fern Studios is proud to unveil
an exciting collage of textures, fabrics, lace details, florals, winged beauties, and snippets of this-and-that from the immensely talented
Vignettes consists of richly multilayered compositions, a muted and nostalgic color palette, and evocative details - singing the praises of those oft-overlooked moments in our lives. Each page is a theme for your own special vignette: Scattered Dreams, The Daily, Frayed Damask or, simply, Timeless are suggestive, each in their way, of a mood to create the backdrop of your own little glimpse of life!
