Bella Blvd Layouts

Hey everyone!  The brand new Bella Blvd Design Team is being introduced all this week on the Bella Blvd blog and today is my turn.  I just adore this company and am so thrilled to be part of their team.  Their designs are just so very "me" and it is so easy for me to create with their products.  Total scrappy crush that's for sure!

I created this layout using all goodies from one of the newest Bella Blvd collections - Making the Team.  Oh how this sport lovin' boy mama loves this collection!  The colors are just perfect and I was so excited to scrap some of these photos I took of Darian all suited up in his football uniform.  Doesn't he look great?  hee!  And I know I've said it before but I'll say it again - I just LOVE the font of the letter stickers Bella Blvd has for each collection.  It's just so fun and versatile and the perfect size for longer titles. 

One of my favorite new additions to Bella Blvd's lineup of products (like my sports themed play on words there?  LOL) are their Miniatures Stickers.  These stickers are a great size for layering and adding those little embellishment clusters here and there. 

This next layout uses a mix of several Bella Blvd collections both old and new.  I love that I was able to dig into my stash and find papers and embellishments that coordinated (both in color and theme) with some of the newest products from Bella Blvd.  This is a photo of my adorable little niece Gia I snapped while we were vacationing in Ocean City this summer.  Isn't she such a cutie?  Oh and I'm loving these alphabet stickers as well - again another super versatile font.

happy birthday

Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Mine was filled with lots of football and lots of laundry.  Pretty typical of Sundays around these parts in the fall.  LOL!  I have a new layout to share with you today.  This layout went up in the Garden today over at Two Peas.  I was asked to use the new Happy Day collection from Simple Stories - this is such an fun birthday collection and I couldn't wait to use it!

This layout is copyright Two Peas in a Bucket

These are some photos I took of my nephew Eli at his first birthday celebration last year.  Isn't he such a cutie?  The distressing on these papers is great and there are so many elements and different bits and pieces that putting this layout together was a snap.  I especially love the bingo cards and flash cards included in the kit - perfect for layering with photos and stickers.

I used one of the kit stickers for my title and just added a Doodlebug button to the "i" in "birthday" for a little more detail and dimension.

I dressed up some more stickers like this cute cupcake with flag and added Doodlebug jewels as my "sprinkles."

And of course I had to add in a Technique Tuesday stamp somewhere on the layout since I'm currently obsessed with them.  The "celebrate" stamp from the "Kids Are Cool" set was perfect for this birthday layout.

Hey everyone! I have a new layout to share with you today.  All this week on the Pebbles blog we've been focusing on "Back To School" themed projects.  Even though Pebbles does not have a specific back to school collection it is so easy to create a themed project simply by picking products with a primary color scheme ... namely the Fresh Goods collection. This collection is definitely one of my favorites and it was just perfect for scrapping these photos of my son Brandon on his first day of kindergarten.

I just adore the woodgrain patterned papers in this collection and the kraft woodgrain was a great neutral starting part from this layout.  I divided my page in half with my large title using the Typo Thickers from American Crafts.  Even after many years and many new Thickers these are still some of my favorites in terms of size and font and I have many (many, many) packages of these Thickers in my stash.  ;)

I love the dimensional stickers in this collection and added one near my smaller photos at the bottom of my layout to highlight my son's happy face.  He seriously was just so thrilled to go to school and still is ... in fact he told me this morning that he loves school and loves his teacher.  It simply made my heart melt.

I added quite a bit of journaling to this layout and printed it directly on the "B" side of the Fresh Goods Local Market patterned paper.  It is a great ledger design perfect for journaling or to use as the base of a layout.  And finally I added in quite a few of the toothpick flags - these are some of my favorite embellishments and are just so fun and easy to tuck here and there on a layout.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
