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 Dad Style!!

Good day everyone! For today's project I used the super cool Dad Style collection from Bella Blvd! I made little gift card wallets using a 3D Gift Card Wallet from the Silhouette Design Store. These little holders make great little gifts for Father's Day, birthdays, or just because! 

I also embellished the inside of the wallet with coordinating Dad Style ephemera and stickers. Bella Blvd puffy star stickers add a fun finishing touch! 

Thanks for joining me today everyone! 
Have a great day!

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!

Christmas Gift Tags!

Happy Wednesday everyone! Today I would like to share some fun gift tags I made using the super fun Bella Blvd Santa Stops Here collection! I started by die cutting some tags from the solid papers in the Santa Stops Here 6x8 mini paper pad. I then had tons of fun using a couple tubes of the Illustrated Faith Acrylic paints. I seriously almost bought this paint set months ago when it was first released. I hesitated only because I don't really use a lot of paints in my papercrafting and wasn't sure if I would be able to use them. Boy, was I wrong! These paints are super easy to work with and the colors are gorgeous too!

I started the tags by using the enclosed paint spreading tool (like a credit card) to push the teal and pink paints around the backgrounds of my tags. When the paint was dry, I simply embellished the tags with my favorite pieces from the Bella Blvd Santa Stops Here collection. I used the Ephemera Pieces as my main focus. I then used the Bella Blvd Puffy Heart Stickers and the Bella Blvd Puffy Star Stickers to finish off my tags. So easy!
Thanks for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to create your own crafty Christmas tags! And be sure to check out the Bella Blvd Santa Stops Here collection for all of your Christmas crafting!

Gift Boxes for St. Nick Day!

Good morning everyone! Today I am sharing my first creation as a member of the 2018 Bella Blvd Creative Team. I am so excited! I love working with Bella Blvd products and the Santa Stops Here collection is no exception! I created these little gift boxes in no time using the Holly Pillow Box cut file I found in the Silhouette online store.  

I used the adorable blue snowflake patterned paper for the base of my first pillow box. I then added a strip of fun candy cane striped paper around the box. I easily finished the box using a pink Bella Blvd Cute Clip bow, an adorable elf ephemera piece, and a cute Santa Epoxy Sticker. 
I die cut the second box out of the coordinating candy cane patterned paper. I used another strip from the Santa Stops Here Borders paper to wrap around the middle of the box. Again, I easily finished the box off with another Bella Blvd Cute Clip bow, ephemera piece, and cute matching epoxy sticker. Who wouldn't love to receive these little boxes?!?!

Thanks for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to craft a goody box or two for a loved one!
Have a great Wednesday everyone!

Pink Paislee Sweet Freedom!

Good day everyone! I am so excited to be Pink Paislee's guest designer for July. And I am super happy that I got to work with the Sweet Freedom collection. I think it just might be my favorite patriotic line of all time! It was perfect for documenting pics of some past 4th of July activities.
For my first layout, I used my Cameo to cut out some fun star shapes and backed them with different patterned papers to create a fun visual on my page.

It was so hard to choose my favorite papers to back the stars with... I love them all!

For my second layout, I used some older pics that I hadn't documented yet. And aren't the coordinating red, white, and blue alpha stickers so much fun?!?
I like how the cursive word adds some pizazz to my title.

My little niece had so much fun waving her little flag at the parade! I again used my Cameo to cut out the background stars here.

The die cut sentiments from the ephemera pack make super cool and quick titles!

And no 4th of July gathering is complete without goody bags. I can see these filled with sunscreen, sidewalk chalk, or snacks!

And every holiday needs fun cards to give away. I am in love with the 3D paper stars from the Sweet Freedom collection!

Thanks so much for joining me! I hope all of you have a safe and fun holiday!
