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.

Scrapbook Circle: October Printables

Okay...on to Scrapbook Circle October project number two. This is a page created with the October Printables...

5 Cute Kids
I always love the printables, because they are so much fun to layer. This time, I layered 3 of the 3x4 journaling cards, and used them to help mat my photo. I feel like this helps the photo pop out from the busy background. I also included the longer memo paper card with these layers to help ground the top half of my page.
I overlapped the two 8 inch strips along the bottom/right of the page, and cut off the excess. This part was perfect for grounding the title.
My journaling and a few embellishments finish the look. 
Be sure to head on over to the Scrapbook Circle Idea Gallery for more inspiration on how to use the October kit!

Scrapbook Circle: 1 Product/2 Ways, Oakley Ave Golden Cards

We're now onto my October projects for Scrapbook Circle, this page was up on October 4th, using The Weekender kit...

You & Me
I chose to use the cards as a background. I grouped them together, cutting off half of the 2 cards on the right to leave a border from my patterned paper. I loved the contrast of the white and gold on black, and accented with maroon and teal to make the photo pop.
This layout was for the 1 product/2 Ways post featuring the Oakley Avenue Golden Cards. You won't want to miss how Claudia used the cards on her project...check it out over at the Scrapbook Circle blog.

Scrapbook Circle: Tech Tip

This is my final September project for the Scrapbook Circle blog using the Shine Bright kit...

Lake Fun
For this page, I was inspired by the geometric patterned paper. When trimming the paper, I followed the lines in the pattern...and used it for a split design background. I used the top half of the page for my photo and journaling, and the bottom for the title.
For the watercolor resist card, I used ink pads and face sponges...and started coloring from the inside out. It, along with my photo make up the focal point of the page.
Shine Bright has probably been one of my favorite kits...and there is still so much left over. For more inspiration using the September kit, be sure to check out the Scrapbook Circle Idea Gallery.

Scrapbook Circle: September Sketch Challenge

Hello again! It's time for another episode of blog catch-up. I had a project up over at the Scrapbook Circle blog on September 26th for their sketch challenge. Here is the sketch...

Here is my take on it...

 Of course, I had to alter a little bit to fit my 8.5x11 page size, but otherwise I stayed pretty true to the sketch. I love how the little mirror flower embellishment worked for the flower cluster while keeping the page boy friendly. 
Throughout the month of September, there were several pages posted for the sketch be sure to check out the September blog archive to see more looks from the same sketch....And, as always, for more inspiration using the September kit, Shine Bright...take a peek at the Scrapbook Circle Idea Gallery.
