Life's Vignettes Scrapbook Layout

 Hello Blue Fern Fans,  how's everyone doing?  We have another beautiful collection created by the amazing and talented Jen Bishop,  Life's Vignettes!  The designs and colors are so gorgeous,  I couldn't wait to create with this collection!  

I created a set of layouts,  the first one is my favorite of the two.  The second one I recorded a step by step tutorial with similar details. 

I did alot of fussy cutting and ink distressing on the layout.  I also made some vellum flowers and did a few doily diecuts.  Although this layout looks simple,  it took me hours to create and I love how it turned out!

I used some crocheted doilies and cheesecloth from my stash that helped create my textured background.

I added Lace number 81 on the top and bottom with paper punched black cardstock peaking through.

The butterfly is fussy cut from the collection,  that's one of my favorites!  

I added beads,  Blue Fern Studios Magenta embossing powder (which I thought was just regular glitter) but it was perfect for adding sparkle!  For the final touch I added Blue Fern Studios Gold Nugget seedlings,  love me some microbeads!

For the vellum flowers I added Finnabair waxes in 3 different shades hoping it would match the colors in this collection.

Here is the second layout with a step by step tutorial!
I basically created the layout using the same details just a different design.  You can view my step by step tutorial at the end of this post if you'd like to follow along!

Well after creating the set of layouts I'm ready to get out this collection and create another project! Be sure to stay tuned for another project soon!

 Yuletide Christmas Junk Journal

Today I am sharing a beautiful Christmas inspired journal using the new Yuletide collection designed by Jen Bishop and a vintage 1956 copy of a Better Homes and Gardens Decorating Book. It is such a fun way to re-purpose a book into 
something special to share with family and friends.

 These papers are so rich with color and texture they easily stand alone with no decoration whatsoever, but using the laces, trims and the ephemera from the collection take it over the top.

I love the to add lots of techniques to incorporate into my journals. Little pockets and tags make a perfect place to tuck journaling,

The Bits and Bobs pack filled with unique Cabinet Cards are a great focal point 
and layering them over lace creates drama.

Using lace as a "belly band" is a fun way to add extra tags, photos or extra ephemera.
 A complete video series of the making of this 5 ring binder journal 
is under my playlist, Blue Fern Studios, on my
YouTube channel - Gayle Agostinelli.  

A flip through video is available at , 

if you'd like to see a walk through of the entire journal.

I hope you enjoyed my Christmas Journal.

Thank you for coming by today!

Hugs, Gayle
