Dream Big (Blue Fern Studios)


Here is my second layout for August for Blue Fern Studios.

Dream Big

My second layout is called Dream Big. I used the B side of the Embark Paper.

I used the Making Plans stamp on this layout also. I just love this stamp.

My chipboards are the Garden Lattice Bits, which are embossed with a dark brown embossing powder. 

On the picture above, I used some of the Seaside Lilies and Attic Charm Daisies.

My chipboard title, part of The Optimist Words Set, is embossed with a mix of auburn, mushroom and buttercup Imagine Ink embossing powders. 

Here is a link to the video:

Live (Blue Fern Studios)


I hope this post finds you well. I'm up today on the blog to share my first creation for August for Blue Fern Studios. I had fun with the Seaside Cottage collection.


My layout is called Live. I used the Splendor paper. I primed it with clear gesso and applied modeling paste and inks.

After that, I used the Forever and Making Plans stamps with black ink to add interest on my background paper. I used the Seaside Lanterns, which I embossed with dark brown embossing powder.

To embellish my layout, I used the Cottage Blooms, the Attic Charm Glitter Roses and the Attic Charm Daisies.

On the bottom right corner of my picture, I used one of the Mini Frames, which I also embossed with a dark brown powder.

Beauty (Shimmerz Paints)


I'm here to share my second layout for Shimmerz Paints for August. It's a very simple layout today.


I just love this picture I took of my daughter a few years ago. She looks like a little model, with the wind in her hair.

To match my picture and my paper, I chose to use two sprays: Jeni B Bleu Vibez and Plum Pudding Spritz. I applied Jeni B Bleu first, with a brush, making sure to dry it before applying the Plum Pudding color.

I used those same colors to make some drops around my composition, to add interest.

On my title chipboard, I used white gesso and when it was dry, I painted some Jeni B Bleu Vibez ink on it, to match.

Have a nice day.

Merveilleux (Shimmerz Paints)

Hi crafty friends,

I'm here today to share with you a layout I did for Shimmerz Paints.


I started out with the beautiful Meadows of Time paper from the Sanctuary collection, by Blue Fern Studios. I primed it with clear gesso.

I wanted to use some embossing paste, but I didn't have the right color, so I created my own mix using some white texture paste and two Vibez colors: Don't Be Suede and Glorious Day. I spread this home made paste through a checkered stencil and freely with a palet knife. I love the result.

To add more color to my layout, I used the Well Blue Me Down Coloringz. I love its bright color.

It was pretty, but I thought something was missing, so I used the Under My Skin Shimmerz to make some drops. It just tie everything together.

Some white paint drops, some stamping, some embellishing (I used the Grid Pieces chipboards from Blue Fern Studios), a title (the French Adjectives 1, also from Blue Fern Studios), and it was good to go!

Don't forget to mention my blog when you order at Shimmerz:

Have a nice day.

Magique (Blue Fern Studios)


I'm up again today to share my last layout from Blue Fern Studios.


My layout uses the Regalia paper again from the Seaside Cottage collection. I just loooooove this paper! On my background, I used the Postal Textures stamps.

On the left side of the layout, I used the Royal Border, which I painted with an aqua metallic paint. While the paint was still wet, I sprinkled some Imagine Ink pearl embossing powder and heat set it. I love the end result. I also used a speech bubble with a heart (I hid the tail of the speech bubble under my flowers) from the Picture Perfect set. It was given the same treatment as the Royal Border.

To frame my main composition, I cut one of the Classic Ornaments in half and used both pieces (painted and embossed) around my flowers.

I used flowers from the Seaside Lilies, Tranquil Blooms and Tranquil Roses and Lilies. The little heart shape above the large mint flower comes from the heart speech bubble from the Picture Perfect set. 

My title is part of the French Adjectives 2 set. It was coated with white gesso, and then painted with cream ink.

Smile (Blue Fern Studios)

Hi, crafters,

I'm here today to share my first layout made with the gorgeous Seaside Cottage collection from Blue Fern Studios. Here it is.


For this layout, I used the Mermaid paper. I altered it with two different stencils and with two texture paste: one white, one a gorgeous sandy color. I also used a blue ink spray.

I choose the Persian Ornament to go under my picture. I embossed it with Imagine Ink snow embossing powder.

To go over my picture, I chose the oval frame from the Mini Frames set, which I embossed also using the snow embossing powder. 

I used some of the Tranquil Roses and Lilies in my flower arrangements. 

My title piece, part of the Funny, Giggle, Smile set, was embossed in snow. Look at this close up on the paper. Isn't it just gorgeous?
