Projects with Kerryn Lawson

Hello!  Kerryn here with you today for my first post as part of the Blue Fern Studios design team.  It is very exciting indeed!

I live in South Australia with my husband and two children.  I have been scrapbooking for about 6 years now and it is a daily obsession.  My husband is the one responsible for introducing me to the world of scrapbooking, a decision he now probably regrets, but I for one am eternally grateful.  I scrapbook in both 8.5x11 and 12x12 and occasionally I dabble in both cards and off the page projects.

Today I would like to share a layout and a card with you.

First up is the layout.  This layout focusses on my son and incorporates some of my favourite Blue Fern Studios chipboard pieces.

The widgetworks set has become a go to set for me.  The arrow piece has been simply inked with charcoal ink.

The quatrefoil garden panel is a fabulously versatile piece.  I have cut the panel in two and embossed both pieces with distress embossing powder.  The two pieces were then incorporated into the design in place of patterned paper.

For my card I combined two different Blue Fern Studios pieces to create a lovely floral cluster on the card.
The seasonal wildflowers have been inked with sage ink with white paint and vintage photo distress ink randomly applied to add detail.  The garden daisies have been given a more subtle treatment of sandstone ink, gold perfect pearls and vintage photo distress ink.

Chipboards and Beads by Camilla

Hi there! Camilla here with two new Blue Fern Studio projects. First one is a layout of my son with his skateboard. Blue Fern Studios has some great title chipboards! I have used Boys Will Be Boys and I also have used the Quatrefoil Garden Panel  and a heart from the Heart Set.

To match the papers I first covered the chipboards with white gesso. Then I added some blue microbeads and some brownish beads before I covered the chippies with glossy accent.

Then I made a card using the Organic Vine Corner and Nested Circles. I really like to use naked chipboards sometimes. It makes a great contrast to colours, here purple.

Make sure to check in every other day to get some new chipboard inspiration! See ya!

Inspirations with Kasia Krzymińska

Hello my friends! My name is Kasia Krzymińska, I'm from Poland and I'm honoured to be a part of this amazing Design Team. It is really hard to explain how I'm still excited and happy to work with these beautiful chipboards. I hope my works will provide you some inspiration. So let's start, here is what I prepared for you this month.

"Believe" - layout

This page was inspired by these beautiful branches. I used them in two ways - I build with them my composition but also used them like a stencils with Glimmer Mists. I got delicate and romantic effect and I really really like it. What do you think about it, did you ever tried to work with your chipboards this way? I think it is really cool to be creative with what you got :)

I used:

Twiggy Branch

Spiritually speaking

Ironwork Accents
XOXO - mail art

Mail art is beautiful way to show our warm feelings to somebody. What I want to show you now is an envelope I embellished with help of Blue Fern Studios chipboard.

I used:

Royal border
"Love" canvas

This tiny canvas is made for my friend. I had fun with her favorite colors and some mixed-media techniques. I love the font of the word I used and I think it's very chic - just perfect to say "I love you".

I used:

Good Vibes
Hope you like my works and feel inspired to work with some Blue Fern Studios chipboards. They are very versatile and you can use them in many ways, you can combine them with mixed-media techniques and create works in your own style.
