Mad for Plaid layout!

Hello! I am excited to share my new favorite layout with all of you! I love the rainbow effect on layouts. And I love it even more when it's rainbow plaid! I used the Bella Blvd Plaids and Dotty collection on this layout and I can't wait to use it again! I love that the plaids come in a variety of sizes as well.

I used the Bella Blvd Wish Big Girl embellishments and they match the plaid papers perfectly. I added journaling to the die cut speech bubbles and I added Illustrated Faith numbers to the Wish Big Girl balloon sticker. How cute is that?!?! 

The plaid papers make a great simple background for my layout. They are fun and add a lot of pizzazz but they don't overwhelm the photo. I embellished this section with Bella Blvd Puffy Star Stickers, Wish Big Girl chipboard pieces, and Bella Blvd felt bow. 

The chipboard words from the Wish Big Girl collection made it super easy to create this fun title! And just how adorable is that birthday hippo dancing on the words?!?

Thanks for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to use the Bella Blvd Plaids and Dotty collection on your next layout!

Merry Christmas Mini Album

Happy December everyone! Today I am sharing a sweet little mini album I made with the fun and festive Bella Blvd Merry Christmas collection. I love the mix of traditional red and greens with the nontraditional navy, teal, and pink. I used a chipboard star album I had in my stash for the album base. I started by painting each chipboard page with acrylic paint. Notice when I finished the album, I punched holes in the Bella Blvd corrugated cardboard Heart Hugs and dangled them from the binder ring.

Once the chipboard stars were painted, I traced the chipboard star onto the Merry Christmas patterned papers. I trimmed the stars smaller than my traced image, so once I adhered them to the chipboard pages the paint border would be visible.  

I love all of the fun patterns and elements in this Christmas collection! It doesn't take a lot of work to layer these embellishments to make cute pages. How adorable is that chipboard banner that says FUN?!?! 

Christmas deer and trees and ornaments, oh my! 

I love this album and can't help but keep flipping through it time and again! I can't wait to document more of my Christmas memories with this fun collection! 

Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to document your most recent Christmas memories using the Bella Blvd Merry Christmas collection
