Life begins after coffee for Kraft Plus challenge

Coffee !

I don't know about you , but I LOVE my coffee. Over the years I've cut down my consumption to maximum 2 per day. It's my favorite morning drink for sure !

The inspiration came easily for this challenge entry page since I had this flair set lying around that I've been waiting to play with.


I just Love this heart coffee in a cup flair:


This one has coffee stains ! OOOOh how cute


And this last but not least one is what I chose to use as the title for my layout.

Blue Fern Studio, Happy Accident collection

Love (Layout #3)


 I just loved this picture of my niece with the new born son Ayden, I've been enjoying making many pages for her recently. I have to say that this one is simple but oh so happy about how it turned out.


The starting point was this amazing paper from the Happy Accident collection called Incident. I love textured backgrounds and this one does the work for you, so rich in details, I opted not to alter it and just build layers.


I selected to emboss the Chicken Wire Panel with Blue Sky embossing powder. I did the same with the Love title chipie.


On my flowers, I opted to add some touches of white gesso and Blue Ice glitter.

Blue Fern Studio layout Remnants collection Sintra Portugal

Remember this Day : Sintra Portugal (Layout #2)


If you enjoy traveling and you've never ben to Portugal, trust that this needs to be added to your bucket list. Sintra is a beautiful city that has amazing Unesco sites that are spectacular to visit. When I looked at the stunning paper from the REMNANTS collection, I knew it was perfect for this picture. This paper is Bloomsbury, I loved the old books look at the detailed printing of the flower and clock.
The title is part of the Remnants chipboard series and so perfect for a capturing any precious moment.


I wanted to add a bit more red to the page, so I chose to work with a stencil, light molding past and this amazing Garnet embossing powder. Once the embossing was done, I wanted to add more stamping to the background. I chose to use the Vintage Edges stamp set.

I love adding flowers to my projects, on this layout I added some from the Remnants Bloom and Floral Collections. I also cut out some flowers from the amazing lace 4 set.


For the chipboard, I inked the Shabby Brick bits. Once my layout was almost completed, I added the final touches with splatters of inks, white gesso and touches of Sterling Silver Seedlings.

Blue Fern Studio, my first series

Good morning bloggers,

Today is an exciting day for me, as I am getting the opportunity to share with you my very first projects for Blue Fern Studios.

Sweet Dreams (Layout #1)


 The inspiration from this page started with this amazing paper in the Remnants collection called Devonshire. I fell in love with the printed flowers and birds on this particular page.

I started playing with my chipboards by adding seedlings to cover them, I have to say that I was very pleased with the results and love the dimension this brings to the layout. I used Meadow seedlings.

The title, oh what color to chose is always a challenge I find. I was intrigued by this new embossing powder called Night Sky, at first, I wasn't certain it would have a fit on a boy's page but at the end I enjoy the contrast that it has with the Meadow seedlings, so I opted for this color.


The center of the Remnants bloom flowers has a slight yellow highlight that I covered in white gesso, then glued a mix of mauve seedlings and red wine glitter. The results are amazing.



Around my picture I used night sky embossing powder with weathered doilies stamp set. On my chipboard circle flourish small frame, I used one of the new colors green ivory


Once my layout is done, then I added touches of red wine and icicle glitter to my flowers and some on the paper.

More than Words January challenge

Happy New Year everyone !

Time to get our crafty resolutions in gear and start having fun with the More Than Words blog challenge.

It's an exciting day as this is my very first project as part of the More Than Words Design team member for 2018. I hope you'll enjoy my take on the challenge and join in on the fun.

My test subject for this project, my friend's beautiful daughter Lauren.


This month, a fun theme: LINK
Word Inspiration - BIRTHDAY
Creative Challenge - TAGS


On my part, BIRTHDAY inspired me with celebrating your very 1st birthday. Lauren has a smash the cake style photoshoot to celebrate her very first birthday. Oh how I wish that concept had existed when my boys where that age. I love the softness of the picture and wanted to capture that in my creation.

TAGS: Are they not just so versatile and easy to use on our layouts? To ensure I had the right tones, I opted to make my 3 tags using my dies and using papers for the same collection.

A bit of twine for the top of the TAG and voila, instant decorative element.


I am a big fan of flairs, and this Cuts2luv butterfly flair was just perfect:


I love when the paper vendors also make word stickers, this paper collection from Kaisercraft had the perfect Happy Birthday for this page.


Light embossing of butterflies and some added water coloring with my Lindy's stains gives this layout the softness that I was looking for.


Flowers, a Cuts2luv flair, a butterfly cluster and voila, all done.


Products used on this page are:

  • Paper: Kaisercraft Sage & Grace collection pack
  • Lindy's Pop-Rock Purple & Brathwurst embossing powders
  • Lindy's Magnolia Magenta Gold Spray
  • Chipboard: Blue Fern Studios
  • Flairs: Cuts2luv
  • Stamp: Penny Black Playful & Stampendous Butterfly trio



I hope you enjoyed my take on the challenge,  I wish you a wonderful day and a more fabulous 2018 to come.
