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!

Game Day | Bella Blvd

Hello everyone! I wanted to jump on here quick and share some exciting news along with a new 12×12 layout! First..how about the exciting news! I was recently invited to join the Bella Blvd. 2019 Creative Team! I am beyond excited about this opportunity and can’t believe I will be joining this amazing team!

I can’t wait to share all the new products with you! Stay tuned! I received a box of current product from Bella Blvd. and I am having so much fun creating projects! Yesterday was Superbowl 53 so I created a fun Game Day layout using the Bella Blvd. Football collection.
I found a the Game Day cut file in The Cut Shoppe and you can grab one too HERE! I packed the cut file with papers from the Bella Football collection. Of coarse I used my favorite American Crafts smooth white cardstock. I just love how nice this cuts in my Silhouette Cameo! Here is a look at my final layout!

Precious Remembrance Shop Guest Designer-Pocket Pages

 

Hello Everyone!

I am so excited to be one of this month guest designers at Precious Remembrance Shop!  Today I am up on their blog sharing another project using thier new Date Stamp!  Now when I saw the stamp set for the first time I had so many ideas in my head I just could not wait to get stamping! I know we are past December but I will be honest here and say I am way behind on my 2016 December Documented album!  I felt very inspired by this stamp set to get going on some of my pages!  I decided to create some journal cards using the stamps in the set and I just love how they came out!

photo1

I used the December stamp and masked off my 3×4 journal card with some wide washi tape and stamped it over and over again at the top.  I embellished my card with some pretty Bella Blvd holiday embellishments.

I did the same thing using the year 2016 on my 3×4 journal card!  This was very quick and easy to do and I love how crisp and clean the cards look!

I also used the On This Day stamp and used the same technique but instead masking off at a diagonal!

photo5

I love how this page looks in my 6×8 album!  I also created a full 6×8 pocket page to go along side my 3×4 page and used the stamp set to add a few details!

photo7

I stamped the grid on some pattern paper to add some more color and pattern to my page and also stamped in the month, date and year!  I added the On This Day stamp to a little Bella Blvd tab and tucked it on the top of my photo!  Love little details like this!

It’s Messy and I Love It – Scrapbook Layout

Hey everyone!  I am back with another layout to share with you!  I am really excited about this one because I am using a new stamp set from Precious Remembrance Shop called Happy Art that Clique Kits now carries!  We I received the email with this new stamp release I just knew we had to add this to the shop!  I love a stamp set that can be used in many ways and this is one of those stamps!  I knew I wanted to create a background with this stamp set for my layout with some fun and bright colors!  I dove into my stash of Tim Holtz Distress Inks and pulled out 3 of my favorites..Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers and Squeezed Lemonade!  I also pulled out my April Clique Kit along with a beautiful teal paper from Bella Blvd Illustrated Faith that matches not only the ink but also the papers I pulled from the kit!

I am documenting this photo of myself and my crazy and wild curly hair.  I had recently cut it very short and this was the first time I had not worn it straight and it looked even shorter and a little messy but I do love it!

The Crew – Sketch Challenge with Oh Snap Gonzo

Hello everyone!  I am here to share a layout with you today using the Hello Heather collection by Pretty Little Studio!  You can find a lot of the products I used in the Clique Kits shop!  I did pick up some of the Hello Heather pieces from the Pretty Little Studio Shop!  I am using a sketch today for inspiration and doing this challenge with Oh Snap Gonzo.  I used sketches when I am feeling low on the crafty mojo!  I have a Pinterest board called A Little Sketchy that has some of my favorite sketches and I add to it often!

The sketch has three photos but I decided to use one 4×6 on my layout!  I love how simple this sketch is and kept my layout pretty close to the sketch as I could.

I love all the bits of black in this collection and anything with polka dots is a plus for me!  The photo I used is of my and Sandra and our daughters when they came up to visit us just recently!  We had a great time and the girls were so glad to finally meet in person!  They had recently been talking via text message and video messenger!  It was so cute to hear them talking and when they finally did see each face to face it was like a movie as they ran up together with open arms and gave each other a big hug!  It is amazing the people you meet in this community and because of my love for scrapbooking I have a friendship with someone who I would have probably never met if it was not for this hobby of mine!

I did add some of the new Bella Blvd enamel hearts to my layout and you can pick them up in the Clique Kits shop!  They are so perfect I just love them and want them in every color!
