Happy Hanukkah Layout for Blue Fern Studios

I also created a Hanukkah layout this month for Blue Fern Studios using a photo of my kids lighting the Hanukiah. Photo is from a few years ago but I was happy I found it as it was perfect for this layout.

For the background I used the back of the Vintage Christmas Holiday Cards paper and some leftover pieces of papers from my cards to mat the photo.

I embossed both the Happy Hanukkah title and the Dreidels in Sea Mist embossing powder.

ATC Set for 7 Dots Studio November Challenge

Hi Everyone!!
I created these vintage looking ATC’s for the 7 Dots Studio November challenge using the new Writer's Block collection. 

The theme this month is "Moments in Time.” 
There are so many moments in our lives that we would love to remember. These ATC’s are perfect for remembering some of them. Each message helps us connect to whats important in life such as “Imagine the impossible”, “draw your own map”, etc. The messages on the Writer's Block word stickers were perfect for these cards.

Here they are below:

Various metal embellishments: miscellaneous

Hanukkah Cards- for Blue Fern Studios

Hi Everyone,

I was really happy when I saw the new Hanukkah chipboards designs for Blue Fern Studios.
Since I celebrate Hanukkah and not Christmas, its always hard to find special embellishments for my holiday projects. However this time the new chipboard pieces were perfect for the occasion.

Here is a set of Hanukkah cards I made:

The backgrounds were created using the Vintage Christmas Auld Lang Syne and Wonderland papers. The neutral colours were perfect to combine with the Blue Fern Studios flowers and chipboard.

The Chipboard pieces "Festival of lights" and Hanukiah were embossed in snow embossing powder while the "Happy" title and the "Star of David" were embossed in the Sea Mist embossing powder.

Memories- 7 Dots Studio Layout Video Tutorial

I'm up again this month on the 7 Dots Studio blog.

I created this layout using the new 7 Dots Studio Writer’s block collection. 

Below is the step by step video tutorial on how I created this layout:

 I used the Burden paper for the background because the woodgrain pattern matched the wooden dock in the photo. I also added many other metal, chipboard and wooden embellishments around the photo.

I love this photo of my daughter feeding the ducks by the pond. They were so close to her that she could almost touch them. 

Here are the product I used:
Prima Natural Bark flowers
Prima cradle bird nest

Follow The Wind- 7 Dots Studio Mixed Media Collage Canvas Video Tutorial

Hi Everyone, 
Its Keren Here with a new project for the 7 Dots Studio blog.

I created a mixed media collage canvas using the new Cotton Candy Dreams collection. 

Watch my video tutorial below as I show you step by step how I create this canvas.:

As soon as I saw the Strawberry Fields paper I knew I wanted to create a whimsical project. I wanted to make a long vertical canvas whereas my daughter is being lifted in the air by floating balloons. 

The pattern on this paper was perfect for this project and the title “Follow the Wind & Chase Your dreams” fits the theme as well.
