Three Projects for Blue Fern Studios!

Good morning! I'm here with you today with three "scrappy" projects created for Blue Fern Studios. And I mean scrappy...literally. Each of my projects were made of scraps of some sort- and who doesn't like cleaning up their desk a little while creating at the same time?!

First up, a mini album:

"The Best"
Every paper in this album (including the pages) are scraps. I guess you could call this a "scrap album" for sure! ;)

 I even used chipboard "scraps" throughout this album- bits and pieces and leftovers of sorts...
 ...punched out bits from panels...


Products Used:

(L-R: Marrakesh Panel, All Natural Set, Village Sign Post, Tuscan Window, Vintage Locks, Heart Set, Leafy Page Accents, Best Day Ever, Small Garden Daisies)

Next, I have a layout:

"Six"
My oldest recently turned six and I took this sweet photo of him on his birthday :)
Another project inspired by scraps, I again added in some chipboard scraps as well...

One of the Tuscan Window shutters was cut in half and used to add texture to the left and right of my photo.

The gears looked great when I applied some molten metal embossing powder!

Products Used:

Tuscan Window

Widgetworks

Lastly, I have a tag to share:

"I Adore You"
Chipboard adds that "something extra" to my tags- and I love them for it! More scraps, some of the leftovers from my mini album :)

 I again used some fabulous molten metal embossing powder to bring this Doodle Corner to life!

...and some gold embossing powder to create this effect on the Vintage Keys piece :)

Products Used:

Doodle Corners

Vintage Keys

Whew! Are you still with me?!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Using up your scraps are good ... but have to say looking at your creations, one would never have known they were purely scraps.

Gorgeous creativity.

Completely amazing projects, Erin! That album is breathtakingly brilliant, and the layout has such wonderful textures, and a gorgeous tag - love, love, love them. So wish it was easier to get hold of the Blue Fern chippies here in the UK!!

Sorry I've not been around much. The big move (clearing and leaving the family home of 40 years) knocked me out, but I'm looking forward to some proper catching up over the next days and weeks.

Fantastic use of scraps! My favorite, of course, is the tag--just love it! Do you use foam dots between the layers on the tag?

luv46kdz said...

These are all so beautiful! Love all the texture you put into each piece. Love your tag, I really have a soft spot for them. Your layout is just gorgeous. The way you arrange all the accents :) yeah. Ok, a SCRAP album! Fantastic. I have a draw filled with em and now I am inspired to scrap my One Weekend Two Shots project in my own. This is why I said I'd love to spend the day scrapping with you on Lindy's fb page :D

Keep inspiring,

Paula
