Crafty Friends | Bella Blvd Creative Team

I am excited to be sharing my first layout using the Let Us Adore Him collection from Bella Blvd!

I was really drawn to the beautiful Purity floral paper in this collection so I stared by fussy cutting one whole sheet! I knew I wanted to use one of the new Bella Cut Outs too that goes with this collection! I cut the heart cut out in half that comes in the The Reason cut out pack! I backed it with different pattern papers from the Let Us Adore Him collection.

To add some color to my background I used some Catherine Pooler inks in It’s A Girl and Party Dress. To blend these two colors together on my white textured cardstock I used a domed blending brush from Scrapbook.com!

For the second half of my heart I decided to fill it with all the fussy cut florals and the Joy Puffy stickers from the Let Us Adore Him collection! I just love how this turned out! To finish off the layout I matted the layout on a piece of trimmed down Bella Besties Hearts & Ombre paper in Punch and then matted it all on the Purity pattern paper!

You can grab this collection at Scrapbook.com or A Cherry on Top! I recommend grabbing a few of the Purity pattern paper to fussy cut all the florals! Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Scrapbook.com Exclusives | My Girl

Well hello friends! Long time no post here on my blog! Instagram seems to be the place to be for sharing my projects but I hope to get back to sharing more on my blog now that school is back in session for the kids! Today I have a colorful layout to share using some Scrapbook.com Exclusives that I know you are going to love.

These exclusives are great basics to have in your stash to match other products and collections you currently have in your stash. I wanted to create a colorful 12×12 scrapbook layout and the 6×8 Rainbow Smooth Cardstock from Scrapbook.com was perfect. This paper pad includes 40 sheets of smooth vibrant cardstock and you get 5 sheets of each color. It cuts beautifully in a die cutting machine and I used some stitched star dies from Echo Park to cut out some of the pretty colors.

To add a little something extra in the background and to help these colors really pop I pulled out my favorite inks from Catherine Pooler Designs! If you have been following me for awhile you know how much I love my CP inks! I added the color vertically down the left side of the page where I knew each colored star would go.

I layered up the stitched stars and then adhered them down to the cardstock. To embellish around the stars I used some stickers from the Rainbow Sticker book from Scrapbook.com. These sticker books are fabulous and I think are a must have in your stash! There are a few different sticker books in the Scrapbook.com shop and you can see them all HERE.

For my title I used the Scrapbook.com Downtown Letters & Numbers Decorative Die Set. I love how unique this die set is and how you can use the letters 3 different ways! This is a great set to add to your collection. To add some contrast to the layout I went with some black cardstock to cut out my title. I just love this thin font on my page. For a little bit of fun along the right side of the page I punched out 1 inch circles using the same Rainbow Smooth Cardstock to create a wonky scallop border. This helps to bring some color to the right side of the page! For some texture I sprinkled some Bella Blvd Trinkets and Doodlebug Design Jewels! To finish off my page I typed out some journaling using my computer. Once it was printed I cut it out into thin strips and adhered to the layout using some Tonic Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed my colorful layout! To get your hands on these fun exclusives head on over to Scrapbook.com! Enjoy your day.

Fairy Garden Scrapbook Layout

Hey friends! I am so excited to share my first layout using the new Fairy Garden collection from Doodlebug Design!

I trimmed down the Pink Posies 12×12 pattern paper and adhered to a piece of white textured cardstock from Doodlebug Design. I pulled out all the Fairy Garden embellishments to fill in the line between the pattern paper and the white cardstock. I used icon stickers, mini icons and odds & ends. Some embellishments are popped up on foam adhesive to add dimension.

The Doodlebug Design Garden Flowers go perfect with this collection so I put together a few of them to add to the layout. I matted my photos using a pink paper from the Fairy Garden 6×6 paper pad and popped it up on foam tape.

For the title I found two chit chat pieces that were perfect for my photos and they are popped up with foam tape. I added a few speech bubbles that had rainbow colors to match the photos of Alyssa’s Rainbow party!

This layout was so fun to put together and the design is so simple but I love all the little embellishments I was able to get onto this page! I would love to see you create a diagonal design like this using your Doodlebug Design stash!

Head on over to the Doodlebug Design blog HERE to check out the final layout and stop by my YouTube channel to see my process! Have a great day!

Hooked on You | A Cherry on Top Design Team

Hey friends! Today I am sharing a super sweet layout using the Echo Park Cupid & Co collection I received from A Cherry on Top Crafts. I also used some of the Sweet Talk collection from Simple Stories.

I recently took some photos of our pittie Lola Bean cuddled on the couch! She is totally obsessed with our new Valentines pillows! She loves this long skinny red one and she cuddles with it every chance she gets. She is not allowed to be on the couch unless there is a blanket down or we give her permission so she pulls the blanket down from the arm of the couch and gathers the pillows and makes herself a nest.

I had this cut file already cut that says Hooked on You and thought it would be perfect to go along with this photos. I backed the cut file with papers from the Echo Park Cupid & Co paper pad. For the background I used some white textured cardstock and used some Lindy’s Stamp Gang to add color. I popped up the cut file on some foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and placed it onto the page.

I used embellishments from the Cupid & Co collection to embellish around the layout. I also fussy cut some florals from one of the 12×12 pattern papers. I pulled out some enamel dots from Simple Stories Sweet Talk collection and sprinkled around my page.

I found a sweet epoxy flair from Scrappin Happy Studio and added to an embellishment cluster I created on the cut file. I love the pinks and reds on this layout and the little bits of black.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Make sure to head on over to the A Cherry on Top shop and check out all the sweet Valentine collections available!

Color Me Happy | A Cherry on Top Design Team

Today I am sharing a new layout on the A Cherry on Top Crafts blog! I used the Paige Evans Go The Scenic Route collection to create my layout and a cut file that I had in my stash of cut files.

I wanted to challenge myself to use a bright colored background and one with a little bit of pattern! One thing that helps me is using just one collection. I know that everything is going to coordinate so that part is already done for me. Since titles are another one of my struggles using a big title cut file is always a go to starting point for me.

I really love how this page turned out and the blue background really helps this layout pop! The Go The Scenic Route collection is so full of color and can be used for so many different projects! It is definitely a must have collection! You can check out the collection HERE in the A Cherry on Top shop!
