Love and Smiles with Bella Blvd!

Good day everyone! I am super excited to be sharing my latest layout with you. I had so much fun mixing up a few Bella Blvd collections. I used the Bella Blvd Mom Life and Island Escape collections along with the Illustrated Faith All People All Nations collection. I love that all of the Bella Blvd collections mix and match so well! 

My main goal was to make a cool focal point with the Bella Blvd Puffy Hearts. And what better way to do that then with a rainbow effect, right?! I first made banner strips from my favorite patterned papers and then cut a slice out of the middle so the puffy hearts would really pop against the white background.

I love all of the floral die cuts in the Illustrated Faith All People All Nations ephemera pack! I finished off my title with an Illustrated Faith word sticker (love) and some Illustrated Faith Homespun alphabet stickers. I love the mix of fonts! 

Thanks for stopping in today! I hope I have inspired you to feature puffy heart stickers on your next layout!

Fun Mini Album!

Hello everyone! I am super excited to share my latest Bella Blvd creation with you! I love that Bella's collections are always so colorful- and the Bug Explorer collection is no exception! I first started by painting a Maya Road chipboard album with the Illustrated Faith Acrylic Paints. I painted only the edges in the white paint first and let the pages dry. I then painted over the white with the fun acrylic paint colors. I love how the colors pop! 

The cover page actually has a peek through opening in it so you can see the main title on the second page. Isn't the little ant ephemera so cute?

I love all of the insect icons in this collection! This line is great for documenting any kind of outdoor activity. I documented my strawberry picking adventure with my hubby! 

This collection is also great for documenting the super cool moth we had seen that morning while looking for strawberries. 

I had so much fun embellishing the album with all of the spider and insect chipboard and ephemera pieces! I can't pick a favorite bug! 

I love the 'insects you might find on an outdoor adventure' page that I made with the ephemera pieces! That spider is so cute! 

Thank you so much for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to document your next outdoor adventure!

Summer Fun with Bella Blvd!

Hello everyone! I can't say enough about the Bella Blvd Island Escape collection! The color palette is gorgeous and the graphics are amazing. I am in total love with this collection! I had a blast using it to document my favorite pair of sunglasses! 

I used the SUPER FUN Sketch Alphabet cut file from the Paper Issues online store for my main title. It is super cool and it is FREE! Be sure to check it out! 

I think all of the fruit graphics and floral printed patterned papers are so cool! 

I also used the fun sun cut file from the Feels Like Summer cut file set from Paper Issues as well. It makes a perfect background for the rest of my layout. I finished off the page with the chipboard 'summer' from the Island Escape chipboard set. 

Thanks for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to document your favorite pair of shades! Stay cool everyone!
