Butterfly Kisses

I LOVE the new Radiance Collection!

This wall hanging is mounted on the Wanderlust "Pacific Coast" wood look paper. I layered "Effervescence" from the Radiance Collection over the wood look and used calling cards, emphera, ink, and even a pin wheel. 

I cut one of "Valerie's Butterflies" in half and painted them with blue acrylic paint then attached them on each side of the photo. I also used a blue tulle bow to add height to the photo and framed it in with a Homespun chipboard frame. 

The lace is number 14 and the fussy cut flower is from the "Effervescence" circle paper.

The die cut frames are from the "Tattered Walls" emphera pack, the butterfly kisses calling card is from the Radiance emphera pack and the little boy chip board is from the Wanderlust Collection. 

I loved how this bird tucked in behind the butterflies and it came from the emphera pack. 

Thanks for the peek!
Blessings, Bonnie

Hey there! I am here today to share another Blue Fern layout with you.

Treasure is a layout I did using the Attic Charm Collection.This collection has beautiful pastel papers in it perfect for a wide variety of projects.
 As you can see I did my familiar background using a stencil (used a damask as it matched the paper), molding paste, mist and some Seedlings in Lavendar.
I used flowers from the Courtship Rose and Fresh Floral Collections with a few add-ons from my stash.
More blooms with an added Prima heart. I painted the heart with the gorgeous Art Alchemy Sparks paint in Iris Potion. I also used some cheesecloth and some Art Stones for added texture.
 I cut the chipboard phrase Treasure the Moment and saved the Moment piece for another project.The word Treasure pretty much sums up the essence of the photo.
That's it for me today. Stay tuned  as there will be some exciting news coming soon!

All the best! :)

Easel card with drawer box

Hello, Blue Fern Studios friends, DT Henriëtte here sharing this easel card 
with drawer box.

There are many tutorials available on how to make such a project. I followed this photo tutorial.

To decorate the cardstock box and card I used the lovely Amber & Apricot  papers and 
printed chipboards. 

I embellished the easel card with yellow and orange flowers.
On the drawers I glued lace flowers and wooden beads.

It was a fun project to make and it will be a great gift to someone.

Products used:

Amber & Apricot papers and printed chipboards
Blue Fern Studios flowers
Lace no. 2

Thanks so much for stopping by the BFS blog.

Hugs, Henriëtte.

Vintage Girl

If I were to use one word to describe myself it would be VINTAGE! I am drawn to everything old, unique, and charming so I am particularly drawn to the Attic Charm Collection. The soft colors, images, and floral touches all speak my language. 

For the background I used the Generation paper, I love the wallpaper effect and the beautiful vintage clock. 

To frame my photo I used a "fussy cut" chair from the Mercantile page of Attic Charm Collection.
I painted the lamp post (from the Lamp Post Chipboard pack) with teal, white, and copper acrylic paint then glued a paper circle to the back and filled it with Mod Podge Resin and yellow ink. 

I cut small scraps of lace (Blue Fern Lace) and attached some Remnants Blooms. I added some Blue Fern Pearl Buttons with a stitch of yellow thread for a pop of color.

I used the green Ribbon from Easter Parade Collection and turned the title strip of an Attic Charm sheet into two little flags and inked the edges. The peach bloom came from the Floral Basic Package and I added some extra vintage glam by stamping the page with the London Chronicle Stamp in red ink.

The title for my page is "I Love Vintage" and I used the sheet "Crafty" from the Homespun Collection as the alphabet.

Thanks for the peek!
Blessings, Bonnie

Double gatefold card with Attic Charm

Hello, welcome at the Blue Fern Studios blog.
Today I'm sharing a double gate fold card with you. I used the beautiful
Attic Charm paper collection, a large chipboard, laces and flowers.

First I made the base of the gatefold card using white cardstock.
(You can find a video tutorial by Kathy Clement on how to make one here)
I decorated the card with the Attic Charms papers.
Some of the paper panels have sewing on it.

On the front of the card I used a large chipboard frame  which I colored in 
similar colors as the papers.
The chipboard is called Glam Frame.
I glued lace and flowers on the frame.

Here's a picture of the inside of the card.
I made a pocket in the middle section.
Inside the pocket are two panels. You can write a birthday message on 
the larger one for example

Aren't these papers just gorgeous? I love the Attic Charm collection.

Products used:

Paper: Attic Charm
Chipboard: Glam Frame
Laces: no. 1 and 4
BFS flowers

Thanks for visiting!
Hugs, Henriëtte.

Homespun Family Recipe Box

Hello Blue Fern Studios Crafters, it's Aida from  @aidaville . Do you have favorite family recipes that everyone loves ? Keeping recipes and the stories about them is a wonderful way to remember and continue your family history. I've made a Recipe Box with decorated separators to help you organise the different recipes. The Homespun Collection is just perfect in soft shades of pinks, yellows and greens.

These are the Blue Fern Studios products I used :
Homespun Paper Collection and Printed Chipboard.
Others : Heavy weight white cardstock  |  Pale Green Glitter Cardstock | Buttons

The front of the box measures 6 inches (top and bottom) and 71/2 inches at the sides. This gave enough room to use the lovely chipboard shapes from the Printed Chipboard sheet. The word "Recipe" is die-cut from glitter cardstock.

Below are the closer photos of the Box.

The recipe separators are easily made from heavy cardstock and decorated with patterned papers and die-cut words. Each piece measures 4 1/2 inches at the top and 8 inches tall.

The tabs are circle punch outs with leftover papers.

Keeping family history alive is so important and using food to tell our stories is a great way to connect. I hope this post will start your own creative ideas on how to stow your favourite recipes.

Thank you for coming by today, have a good week ahead !
