My Last Blue Fern Studios Projects

Hello my crafty friends :)

This is my final projects for Blue Fern Studios.  My 12 month term finishes at the end of December and I can't believe how quick that 12 months went! 

With my last 2 projects I used the new Vintage Christmas paper range. Its a beautiful paper range with such a range of colours to choose. 

In my first project I was inspired by the gorgeous pinks, reds and aqua's. Such a pretty combination.

"Merry Christmas"

Lots of paper strips and fussy cutting...oh what fun! Chipboard pieces have been lightly painted in Gesso first and then covered with mists, inks and glitter :)

Paper: Vintage Christmas
Chipboard: Holiday Frame, Holly Sprigs, Word Ornaments

My second project is full of glitter and shine! I have used the new Imagine Ink Glitter range - Carribean and Pyrite on my chipboard pieces and a sprinkle here and there in my paper. I was truly shining after this project!!! :):)


Paper: Vintage Christmas
Chipboard:  Winter Village, Winter Titles, Winter Page Dangles, Christmas Ornaments, Beaded Strings

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you feel inspired to create this holiday season. Thank you Blue Fern Studios for having me on the team this past 12 months...its been absolutely fun!

Take care

Blue Fern Studios December Sketch

Hi everyone,

I can't believe its December favourite but busiest time of the year! 

Just quickly popping by this morning to share with you the December sketch for Blue Fern Studios.

How cute and whimsical is this sketch.  But as usual you don't have to use holiday theme chipboard or papers to participate. Its purely for inspiration.

My layout...

I decided to sort of stick to the sketch and even use the same chipboard pieces :):):):)

So its a little different for me but on the same hand I wanted to create a fun layout as its a photo of my boys enjoying their lollipops that their Nana gave them a couple of Christmas's ago now! Yes I am still trying to catch up on photos from way back then!

"Hip Holiday"

Lots of texture on this layout, glitter, Shimmerz, beads, texture and crackle paste, inks and mists. It was quite fun to put together!


All sketch rules and details can be found on the Blue Fern Studios Blog HERE.

Have a great day and happy crafting!
