My Creative Scrapbook February Reveal!

Hello, there!
 It's time for the February Reveal over My Creative Scrapbook
Pam always puts together the greatest kits, four different types, so something for almost everyone! 
As always,  I got to create with the Limited Edition Kit. .. filled this time with the gorgeous Blue Fern Studios Blush collection,  Blue Fern Chipboard and Imagine Ink mist, 3 packages of Prima Marketing Flowers, Heidi Swapp glittered word stickers, Thickers and 3 different ribbons. 
Perfect for this time of year … or actually anytime! 

I decided to re-scrap this photo of my daughter and son-in-law. I had given her my last project, so maybe I'll get to keep this one! 

I have created a video tutorial on this layout .. my very first, so be patient with me as I learn. 
Here are some close-ups first:

The gorgeous BFS Bordeaux Layered Frame which was gessoed, mist and then finished with aged gold embossing fragments. 

So many sweet little note cards come with this collection! 

I am fortunate to also own many of the Blue Fern stamps which I've used here. 

Just a dimensional shot! 

Okay, now here's a little video showing you the LE Kit contents! 

Flowers in the Kit are:
Prima Cigar Box Culebra
Prima Nikko Danno
Prima Garden Fable Spring

Dreams Come True ~ Blue Fern Studios newest sketch!

Thanks for coming by today! 

 It's time for another new sketch challenge for you over at Blue Fern Studios 
 Michele Singh has created this beautiful sketch exclusively for Blue Fern! Isn't it gorgeous?
Perfect for the month of February! 

And here is my take on the sketch! 

"Dreams Come True"

My layout was also inspired by the new More than Words January Challenge. However, we are not allowed to submit our DT work for other challenges. But MTW was my inspo to create a selfie layout reflecting my personality. 

I will review some of the process details in my January 12th post for Blue Fern. 
But in the meantime, it's your turn! 

Here are the sketch challenge details:

One lucky winner, selected by a random draw, will receive a prize package of Blue Fern Studios chipboard!
In addition, we will also select 3 (or more) layouts to feature.
We have just a few simple rules to follow if you would like to participate in our sketch challenge:
1.) Feel free to interpret the sketch as you please by means of taking it as-is or 
flipping/turning/mirroring it to suit your needs! 
2). Please note that you can do whatever type of project you please - a layout, card, 
  canvas, altered item- whatever suits your mood and style! 
We would love to see the different ways our sketch can be used.
3.) You must use at least one piece of Blue Fern Studios chipboard OR use Blue Fern Studios paper on your project. Please note that you do not need to use the pieces featured in the sketch
- use whatever suits your fancy! You can find the store nearest you HERE.
 {Do not use any other brand of chipboard on your project please!}
4.) Upload your project using the Inlinkz tool on the Blue Fern Studios Blog
by midnight EST on February 29, 2016. 

We look forward to seeing how you use our sketch and Blue Fern Studios products!

Swooning here ... The Full Serendipity Collection from Blue FernStudios ..

Hello everyone! 
 As promised, I'm here here today to help introduce the new Serendipity paper collection (created by Michele Singh)  from Blue Fern Studios … and the chipboard, stamps, embossing powder and glitter that coordinate with the paper.

First up, we have the paper.  You are going to love the gorgeous colors and details!  
The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines serendipity as: luck that takes the form of
finding valuable or pleasant things that are not looked for.  

As you journey through this 10 sheet collection, you are going to find a myriad of treasures, intertwined with beautiful borders, textured backgrounds, dainty vintage flowers, and sweet songbirds.

Chronicle might be my fave! 

Sigh … 

Love this one! 

Next up are the chipboard pieces we have created to coordinate with this collection.  We thought the titles of each page of this collection were so wonderful, that we created chipboard titles, too!

For all your stamping needs, we have three sets of stamps to coordinate with this collection.

We hope you have enjoyed seeing all the creative ways our Design Team has been using our new Embossing Powders.  We have three new colors that will be beautiful with the Serendipity collection.

Lastly, we have some gorgeous new colors of glitter to add some sparkle to your projects.

 Thanks for stopping by today. 
 I hope you enjoyed a look at our new Serendipity collection and everything that goes with it!
