Blue Fern Studios 'Timeless' for The Scrapbook Store

Just wanted to grab this short break in my schedule to share my February DT work for The Scrapbook Store. Wow! It's almost the end of March I hear you say!!  I know, the first few months of 2016 have been so very busy already and I've got so much more planned for the rest of the year! :)
Okay, straight to the point then. ;)  I got to work with the stunning new Blue Fern Studios 'Timeless' collection.  The first layout is of my gorgeous girl and I. She was busy taking selfies of the two of us during our recent holiday, when my husband snapped this pic of us. :)
I simply love this 'Floral Arrows Crossed' chipboard from Your Creative Wings. I've coloured it up using my ink pads and then added some muslin and a few mini roses to the mix.
Here I've built a little cluster using more of the same elements and the same chipboard set, but also added a charm and a Kaisercraft bloom.  I've added some Prima 'Micro Beads' in Bronze using Prima '3D Matte Gel'.  The butterfly was cut from one of the patterned papers.
The title is from the Dusty Attic 'Mini Captions #3' chipboard set.  I love these gorgeous small titles.
More roses in all forms and sizes, repeating elements from the other clusters.
The following layout is of my dear mum and I during our visit to them in December.  We live more than 9000 km apart and every moment spent together is perfect and very precious.
My cluster are made out of Petaloo 'Forget Me Nots' in Antique Mauve and a big Green Tara 'Azalea' in Antique Pink. I've also added Craft Consortium resin florals in 'Rose Blush' and a few white Green Tara mini roses.  I've cut the leaves from one of the patterned papers using the Memory Box 'Fresh Foliage' die.
I've fussy cut some flowers from one of the papers to add to the bottom left corner. Also added a strip of Green Tara lace and a Kaisercraft pearl strip underneath the photo. :)
One of my favourite doily dies must be this one from Cheery Lynn called 'French Pastry'.  It complemented the rest of the design and all I had to do was add the title.
This card was made using some of my left overs.  I love adding corrugated cardboard to my projects and it perfectly matched these papers and the gorgeous Green Tara 'Linen Look' trim.  The sentiment was cut using the Elzabeth Craft Design 'Happy Birthday' die.
That's all I have for now, but will be back to share my March layouts soon. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog. Wishing you a wonderful Easter.

Until next time.
