November Inspiration with Blue Fern Studios

Hello again scrappy friends!! I can't believe how fast this year has flown by, how is it November already??  This month I have some project to share from the gorgeous new Memoires collection.  My first project I feature another photo found on my iPad courtesy of my eldest selfie taking daughter! As they have gotten older, I find I am much worse about capturing them in photos and it is something I need to improve, thank goodness for one daughter who loves to take photos of herself which I promptly co-opt for my layouts and Project Life!!


For my first layout I chose the Remember When paper as my base. I used some layers underneath my photos from the Calling Cards paper and the Tales of Treasure paper.



Here in this close up you can see the beautiful Memoires Blooms and Lilies cluster on Jasmine Collage and the Dream chipboard.  For the Jasmine Collage I used the Melon Imagine Ink Embossing Powder and for the Dream chipboard I used the Buttercup Imagine Ink Embossing Powder.


On this photo you see another Memoires Bloom I used as well as some background stamping using the  Scratched and Crackle Textures stamps.


To frame my layout I finished it off with the gorgeous Manor Hinges chipboard embossed in the 14 Karat Imagine Ink Embossing Powder.

For my second layout I chose a gorgeous turn of the century photo of a Parisian model. I thought it went perfectly with the beautiful Photographic Record paper. Clustered underneath my photos I again had the beautiful Calling Cards cutouts and the Tales of Treasures paper. My title in the bottom corner is inoubliable chipboard from the French Words set, the French word "Unforgettable" which was embossed in the 14 Karat Imagine Ink Embossing Powder.


Here in this photo you can see the beautiful Spring in Paris chipboard which I have also embossed in the 14 Karat Imagine Ink Embossing Powder.  The embossing powder did not cover the chipboard perfectly and instead of trying for perfect coverage I left it a bit distressed and added some Black Soot Distress Ink.  Here you can also see the fleur de lis shaped hinge from the Manor Hinges set, perfect for this layout!! I added some metallic pearls to finish off the chipboard along with the 14 Karat Imagine Ink Embossing Powder.  I added a few Lilies to the layout for some gorgeous detail.


I used several sets of stamps to build up my background: Grungy Grid, Texture 1 and Coarse Fabrics. I also added some brown and blue splashes from mists in my stash.


Here you can see more background stamping, splashing and a bit of texture tucked in with the Mesh Bits pieces embossed in Frozen Imagine Ink Embossing Powder.

For my next project I made a set of cards.  This collection had an awesome sheet perfect for cardmakers: Grand Sequel.  The back side of this paper had a collage of four of the sheets from the collection in 6x6 size!!


I just love this idea!! I was able to use the smaller sizes of these designs for gorgeous card backgrounds.


For my first card I fussy cut the typewriter from the Chronicles paper.  I added a Memoires Bloom and Attic Charm Daisy to the card and tucked in some Bits of Honey pieces embossed in 14 Karat Imagine Ink Embossing Powder.  The golden typewriter font letters saying hello and the stitching finished off this card.



I always love to make cards using vintage images I find.  I added some twine and a doily under this image and some beautiful Blue Fern Lilies to this card. I added the gorgeous flower from the Layering Stems chipboard set and embossed it in Raspberry Imagine Ink Embossing Powder. Again I finished off the card with stitching and it was done!


For my final card I found this adorable vintage girl image. I tucked in some paper and this fussy cut bird/watch image from the Calling Cards paper.  The leaves are from the Layering Stems set and are embossed in Sage Imagine Ink Embossing Powder to match the green in the girls dress and hair ribbon.  A little bit of stitching around the card finishes off this set.
