July Projects for Blue Fern Studios

I just love summertime and our visits home to the USA. This month I'd love to share my projects with you using 3 different and gorgeous Blue Fern Studios paper collections and with a decidely summery slant!


This collection, Ombre Dreams, is an oldie but goody, one of my favorites, I just love the gorgeous pastel shades, it screams summer to me! I decided to do some beach themed layouts and chose this beautiful Ginger's Dreams page to be my base for this layout.


My girls are now 12 and 13, they look so so young and adorable here making sand castles on Venice Beach in California! I used the gorgeous Seaside Frame to frame my photo, coloring it with Sea Mist Imagine Ink Embossing Powder. I added the fun title Hello Summer on top, using the Buttercup Imagine Ink Embossing Powder.


Here you see a cluster of gorgeous Tranquil Blooms and Courtship Blooms. I tucked in a starfish from the Seaside Seashells set  which I had embossed with the Imagine Ink Ginger Embossing Powder and some of my stash of real shells!!


I used a circle mask and molding paste and sprinkled the Imagine Ink Sunshine Glitter into the paste, I love the sandy look it gives!  You can see here the background stamping using my netting stamp from Essential Textures set and the circles from the Halftone set.

Here is my second beachy themed layout, this one is more atmospheric...it is a photo of the girls beach toys left behind while they ran off to dip their feet in the ocean...just a calm serene scene using the Peaceful paper from the Tranquility collection.



I absolutely love this Seaside Charms chipboard which I layered on top of my photo. I embossed it with Petal Imagine Ink Embossing Powder. I did some masking and used molding paste for my background and used one of my favorite patterned background stamps from the Forever stamp set. The butterflies in pink are from the Bourbon Street set.  I tucked in a few layers from the Calling Card paper to add dimension to my layout under the photo.


In my cluster I used another of my starfish chipboards, this time from the Seaside Treasure chipboard set.  I embossed the starfish in  Lime Imagine Ink Embossing Powder. I made a flower cluster with the gorgeous Tranquil Roses and Attic Charm Daisies. I also tucked in more of my stash of seashells!  I used the Inspiration chipboard, embossed with  Petal Imagine Ink Embossing Powder for my title.


Here you can see the Tranquil Blooms flower and more shells and a bit of the coral from the Seaside Treasure chipboard set. I tucked in a kraft tag for journaling.

For my final layout this month I used a vintage image I found of an adorable sleeping child. There was a bird on the photo so I added some bird resins to the layout!  For my base paper I used The Grand Ball sheet from the Love Story collection.


I used lots of layers from the Love Story Calling Cards sheet.  Here you can see lots of the stamping I did using the Texture Circles, Forever set, and the Essential Textures set.  I did some masking and modeling past here as well. My flower cluster is from the gorgeous Tranquil Roses and Lilies set and you can see a little piece from the Tattered Diamond Bits set which I embossed with Cotton Candy Imagine Ink Embossing Powder.


Here you can see the gorgeous Organic Vine chipboard piece embossed in Sea Mist Imagine Ink Embossing Powder. I also tucked in some more of the Tattered Diamond Bits under the photo. I added a resin birdbath and birds to fit the design of the layout!


I finished off the layout with the title Stillness which I embossed with the Sea Mist Imagine Ink Embossing Powder, tucking a cute little bird on top of the title!

I really enjoyed picking out some of my favorite papers and collections this month and I thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and visit!!
