Cuts2luv is guest detective on the CSI challenge

Hi bloggers,

This month, Cutts2luv is one of the sponsors for the CSI challenges. Our team has been invited to be Guest Detectives for 2 cases.

Let's start with Case # 251, here is my page for this challenge:

I loved the youthful fun image included in the challenge. I opted to start my layout on a blue background, then added a white section. I chose whimsical papers to lighten up the page of my little dog Maya, she is just adorable and brings us so much joy on a daily basis. 

My evidence: solid background, textured papers (stripes & dots), Picture of my dog, Paper flowers, Hearts & flower stamps & word phrases & color combo.
Testimony: This layout is how my little dog is ADORABLE and such a ray of light in our lives, we truly love her so much.

Here are a few more pictures for my case:

Now it's time for Case #252:

Yellow... A color I have to say I love but neglect to use on my pages. This image was refreshing, I wanted to capture a special moment in our family life of when we bought our cottage. That place was a ray of sunlight in our life. I felt it was the perfect moment to capture for this challenge.

My evidence: Stripes, dots, circles, numbers (roman clock), hearts (die-cut) & color combo.
For the testimony, I would say I was inspired by the word SHINE and chose my title SUNSHINE to reflect that inspiration.

And now here are a few more pictures for my page:

I hope you will liked both pages & wish you a wonderful week.


April projects for Blue Fern Studios

Hi Blue Fern Fans, it's my turn today on the blog and I have 2 layouts for you today.

Câlin Step by Step layout with Wanderlost collection

This month, I would like to show you a step by step on building the foundation for this layout:

I always start my process by coating my paper with clear gesso. The clear gesso will act as a barrier and let you add watercolors or sprays easily to your layout.

Once my gesso is dry, I use a stencil and mat gel medium. Then I add my embossing powder to my gel medium and heat emboss. I love adding embossing to my backgrounds. I've found that gel mat medium works really well to emboss this way. I used Honey Embossing Powder on my layout.

Then I like to add inks to my background. I try to match my inks to some of the darker colors already on the paper. In this case, a dark teal blue. I sprints some water on the edges to give it a blurry effect and let it dry. You can use a heat gun to goa faster if you wish. Once dry, I use the same ink and add splatters with a small fine tip paintbrush and let dry again.

Last step for the background is to add some die-cut pieces and white some white glue, I add on some seedlings for extra texture. On this background I used the Harvest Seedlings.

For dimension, I enjoy adding chipboards to my pages. I heat embossed with a slightly darker tone this time to give contrast with the initial one placed on the background. On my chipboard I used Ginger Embossing Powder. I LOVE the metal effect it gives. 

Last steps are just to layer your Pictures with different pieces of cut out paper, printed chipboard, flowers and ornements.

Here are a few more images of my layout:

The picture was taken at my son's high school graduation, it was a proud moment, I felt this quote was just perfect because it truly is what a hope for him to chose a career that will make him happy.

Blue Fern Studios products used:

Paper: Wanderlust Memento

Embossing Powders: Ginger & Honey

Printed Chipboard: Wanderlust

Flower: Spring Lilies


Sassy... Serendipity collection

This quote spoke to me.... The Best Moments Happen when they are Unplanned....

oh how true.... I am a girl that is often spontaneous, so this quote is truly one perfect for me.

I truly love this Chesterville flower, soft and delicate it was perfect tp highlight the light colors on this beautiful background.

I also added the leaves and small black flowers from the Wanderlust Vine set.

Behind the quote I used ginger embossing powder with the Vintage Edges stamp set to give some texture on my background.

I love this Sassy chipboard title and wanted it to pop off the page. I also wanted to give focus on the teal elements of this gorgeous paper. I chose to add only a layer of Caribbean glitter over the chipboard, wow it gave a spectacular finish. Underneath is another piece of chipboard heat embossed with Ginger Embossing Powder. This one is becoming part of my favorites.
