Fun with Fruit Ephemera Pieces!

Good day everyone! Today I am excited to share my new favorite layout with you! I used the new Illustrated Faith Fruit of the Spirit collection from Bella Blvd. When I first saw the fruit, I knew it was a fun collection. But after actually working with this collection, I am smitten! Come take a look! 

I had so much fun hand stitching on the ephemera fruit pieces! And I love how cute the Bella Blvd puffy heart is as the peach 'pit'! 

I love all of the tropical colors in this collection. And how cute is that hand stitched apple?!?! 

I used the How Sweet It Is FREE cut file from the Paper Issues store for the title and the watermelon. I love how the title reminds me of watermelons as well! And speaking of watermelons, isn't that die cut watermelon adorable!?

And more hand stitched fruit! I love the dimension the hand stitching adds! 

Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope you all have enjoyed my latest creation! And I hope I have inspired you to use fruit on your next project!  ;)

Mini Album for Dad!

Hello crafty friends! Today I am sharing a fun new mini album I created using the cool and funky Bella Blvd Dad Style collection! I had so much fun going through old photos of my dad to use in this album. I thought the old photos would be a perfect match to the vintage vibe of this collection. 

I started by using a Lori Whitlock label cut file I purchased from the Silhouette online store. I first cut out multiple cardstock pages to use as my base. Then I cut out multiple pages from my favorite Dad Style collection patterned papers. 

I love all of the colors in this collection. They are so versatile and great for new or old photos! 

I added some chipboard accents from the Bella Blvd Bug Adventure collection on this page.

Ha! I love this photo of my dad on his Harley and my sister and I on our bikes. I laughed out loud when I found this photo! I dated all of the pages using the adorable Illustrated Faith Homespun number stickers.

I love all of the clock icons in this collection too. They were perfect accents for this album because as I was creating it I realized time goes by way too fast. 

Thanks for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to document your dad this Father's Day!

Bella Blvd Island Escape Layout!

Good day everyone! I am excited to share my latest, and my new favorite, layout with you! When I started working with the Bella Blvd Island Escape collection, I knew it was super adorable. But after using it, I now love it so very much I need to add a lot more of it to my stash! I just love the colors and the summery vibe! And the patterns are gorgeous! 

The dark blue acrylic word adds a super quick and awesome title! And the felt pennant adds some cool texture.

The starfish and shell pieces are die cut using the Sweet Summertime cut files from the Paper Issues online store. And guess what?!?! Those cut files are FREE! Go check it out! I also added a little hand stitching with embroidery floss on one of the journaling cards. Stitching on journaling cards might be my new favorite technique!

The chipboard and stickers are just gorgeous! I love the chipboard florals and I am IN LOVE with the little chipboard waves! Are they not the cutest!?!? 

Thanks for stopping in today! I hope you have a great day. I hope I have inspired you to document your warm (or hot!) weather pictures!

Fun Layout using Cut File and Bella Blvd!

Good day everyone! Today I am sharing a fun layout using the amazing Bella Blvd and Illustrated Faith All People All Nations collection and a free polka dot cut file from Paper Issues! I absolutely love the artsy vibe and the color combo of the All People All Nations collection! It just might be my new favorite!! 

The cool Ephemera pieces helped this layout come together rather quickly. They are great for page accents and even layout titles!  

I love the journaling shapes as well. They are pretty large, which is great for being able to document all of the details! I accented the layout with adorable coordinating Illustrated Faith enamel hearts! And I just can't get enough of the patterns and the color combo- swoon!

Thanks for joining me today! Be sure to check out the All People All Nations collection for your next project!

Fun Cards with Bella Blvd Pennants!

Good day everyone! Today I am sharing some fun cards featuring Bella Blvd's felt pennants! I love the dimension and texture they add to any project-especially cards! Be sure to check out all of Bella Blvd's pennants because they come in so many more themes than the boy ones featured here!

I first used the Illustrated Faith Acrylic Paints to paint fun and funky backgrounds for my cards. I then layered chipboard pieces, ephemera pieces, and (of course!) the felt pennants over the painted background. I finished them off with the super cool Bella Blvd puffy sticker stars and puffy sticker alphas

Thanks for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to be creative on your next papercrafting project!

Bella Blvd Football collection!

Good morning everyone! Who is super excited about the Super Bowl this weekend? I AM even though my Chicago Bears fell short again I still love to watch the biggest football game of the year! I wanted to wrap up football season with a layout using the super fun Bella Blvd Football collection! I love all of the fun colors and it is great for documenting activities about all your favorite teams! 

I used the coordinating Football alphabet stickers wrapped around a die cut football to make a fun title! This collection is also perfect for documenting kids football games!

And the 'foam finger' die cut and acrylic FOOTBALL word are seriously fun!

I love the texture and dimension that the flag pennants add! 

Thanks for joining me today! I hope everyone has a great day!
