Trouble x 2
(Stuck?! Sketches August 15th Challenge)


I took this picture last Winter while hanging out with my nieces.  It cracks me up as it shows exactly how silly they can be together... not withstanding the occasional (ok ok frequent!) sisterly bickering. I finally got around to scrapbooking it, while inspired by the latest Stuck?! Sketches challenge that follows.


This is the August 15th sketch!  Check out Stuck?! Sketches right HERE for all the details on this challenge and to see lots more DT inspiration!


Laura's sketches always look so fabulous.  I flipped this one vertically so my title cluster is in the bottom left corner.



I love the grid design on the sketch background so I wanted to use a grid pattern on my background too.  I contrasted the kraft base with busy flowers designers and a variety of bright colours.


They sure can be a load of double trouble, but they're also as lovable as can be!


Thank you for visiting today!

The End of a Perfect Day
(Blue Fern Studios DT Reveal 3)


Are you loving the new Seaside Cottage collection from Blue Fern Studios yet?
If not, then you are missing something and should really check it out HERE!

This is yet another layout created with this gorgeous collection!


This page features a super sweet photo of my niece Ella standing ashore, at the end of a perfect day, just before sunset. I used the Icicle embossing powder on the title with a bottom layer of Chili Powder which I found was perfect to go along with the color of the sand on the picture.

Wanting to showcase as much different patterned papers on my layout as possible, I created several tags and slipped them along the ripped and distressed diagonal edge of my page.


Below, you see a piece of the Frolic Mesh covered in Seamist embossing powder to adorn the Blue Fern Studios blooms.


This gorgeous image from the Calling Cards paper went beautifully with my photo and page.
I lined it up with some fussy cut shells and the dolphin from the Ocean Mermaid set.


Also from the Ocean Mermaid set is this fabulous piece on which I used, from the tail tip to the bust, Clover, Peacock, Seamist and Icicle embossing powders.


Oh, how I love this picture!  It seems like the perfect end to my BFS DT Reveal, showcasing the gorgeous Seaside Cottage line! 



I hope you have enjoyed my 3 sea-themed projects over the last 3 days, just as much as I've enjoyed creating them!

Summer Vacation
(Blue Fern Studios DT Reveal 2)


I am so blessed to live near the Atlantic ocean so I get to see beautiful seascapes all the time.  I therefore have lots of beach pictures to scrapbook and the new Seaside Cottage collection from Blue Fern Studios is just perfect for all those!

Today, I am sharing with you this double-page layout created with this exquisite line!


I love creating double-page layouts and I had just the right pictures for this one, to go along with these beautiful papers.  I took these shots during our family Summer vacation in Percé, Quebec two years ago.  Yves was walking on the seashore admiring from afar the famous Rocher Percé.

I choose to use the Summer Vacation chipboard piece as my title and covered it in layers of Stellar Night, Blue Sky, Breeze and Snow embossing powders.


I decorated my page with beautiful blue Seaside Lilies and ivory Seaside Roses along with other flowers from my own stash.  I added pieces of Crackle Bits, covered in Auburn embossing powder, behind my flower clusters to give the illusion of fishing nets.


This is a fabulous new piece called Seashell Frame which I decide to cut in half... using the top half on top of my photo strip and the bottom half peaking out from below.


I sprinkled a little Autumn glitter around my flower clusters and I added some white and blue shimmery paints on my background and embellishments as well as turquoise mist.


I absolutely love this quote to go along with the photos of Yves... 
a boy playing on the sea-shore... :)

I have some more Blue Fern Studios inspiration to share with you tomorrow!
