Bella Blvd: Splash Zone

Hello everyone! Did you know that April 8 is National Zoo Lover's Day? Although, today I am celebrating with an aquarium layout because I couldn't resist digging in to the new Splash Zone collection....also up over at the Bella Blvd Studio Blog.  Most zoos have an aquarium, so I works :)

Ripley's Aquarium

I started by picking out the Swim Like a Fish and Splashing Around papers...and gathering all of the fishy/water and neutral type embellishments. As I was gathering...I kind of like how I piled everything, and that is the arrangement that you see here. I added a little dimensional tape to make things pop.


I never feel like a project is complete without a little stitching and a few staples. I also topped off my embellishment cluster with a couple enamel dots from the Sentiments Mini Heart Hugs. I just love the Florence Alphabet Stickers, they were the perfect size for my title...I used two different colors, Gulf and Orange, for interest.


This was a layout that I didn't have to think about too much, once I started pulling out embellishments, it kind of designed itself....I love it when that happens. It's easy to do when the products are so cute :)

Bella Blvd: Plaids & Dotty

Hello everyone! I have this layout up over at the Bella Blvd Studio Blog today:


I feel like I am drawing all of my inspiration from Pinterest lately! But, I came across this image, and thought it would make a pretty great background:



I paired up some of my favorite colors from the Plaids & Dotty. Using a circle cutter, I cut out 3 different sized circles: 1.5 in., 2.5 in., and 3.5 in. I cut the circles in half, matched them up, and sewed them together using a zigzag stitch.


Using white cardstock as my background, I adhered the circles in an interesting pattern...and layered on some puffy stars, embellishments from the Oh My Stars collection with my photo, and an acrylic word title to finish the look.


This was a fun one!

Bella Blvd: Heart Hug Puppies

Hello! Today, I am up over at the Bella Blvd Studio Blog sharing this layout using Heart Hugs:

I spotted a Puppy card on Pinterest that was made out of hearts. With all of the available heart embellishments made by Bella, I thought it would be easy to make mini puppies.

The puppies' faces are made of upside down Heart Hugs.

The ears are Puffy Hearts cut in half and placed upside down on either side. Enamel Hearts make up the noses and tongues.

I used jewels that I had on hand for the eyes, but I'm sure the enamel dots from the Heart Hugs would work just fine.

This project was so much fun, and I love how it turned out! How are you using Heart Hugs?

Bella Blvd: Pinterest Inspired Birthday Layout

Well...hello there! It has been a minute since I have published any of my papercrafting projects to the blog world. I am making an attempt to remedy that...and today you can see one of my projects over on the Bella Blvd Studio Blog! This layout shows off the Wish Big Boy collection...and was inspired by an image found on Pinterest.

While browsing the wonderful world of Pinterest, I came across this flat lay image:

I loved the arrangement so much, I decided to use it kind of like a sketch. The flag placement seemed like a great place to use one of Bella's adorable pennants..and I used a variety of patterned paper and tags to mimic the rest of the elements on the page.

I stayed pretty true to the 'sketch', but added a header and footer + title and a few random embellishments.

...and an adorable acrylic word always makes a great fast and easy title!
Have you been inspired by Pinterest lately?

Bella Blvd: Just Like You

Hi all! It has been awhile since I have posted a project, and I actually had time to create just for fun last weekend. I decided to use up some of my many Bella Blvd supplies and came up with this layout documenting one of my son, Owen's 12 year pics.

 I started out using the Max collection, and then gradually added in a few others such as Thankful and Hello Autumn. I also added in some flags, enamel dots and hearts, and Homespun Alphas.
 I love layers, so I just kind of piled everything up at the bottom. The little guitars are perfect, and the background colors pop so much with the use of the fall collections. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Scrapbook Circle: DT Choice

For my final October project, I used the main Weekender kit...along with both of the Add-Ons. This page was up over on the Scrapbook Circle blog on October 16th...

My page was inspired by the word 'weekends' in the Paige Evans Gold Thickers sheet, found in the #Goals Add-On. I loved how the colors in the photo seemed to match perfectly with the October kit palate. There were even a few purple embellishments to compliment my daughter's shirt...also, what is a more perfect weekend activity that cuddling?
The Oakley Avenue cut apart circle and the button are also from the #Goals Add-On, and were a perfect compliment for the pocket journaling card which is found in the Out & About Add-On. The XOXO was my favorite of the Pretty Little Studio Cards found in the main kit, and I had lots of fun making  a little cluster with it, the pocket card, and my photo.
For more inspiration using the October kit...check out the Scrapbook Circle Idea Gallery!
