Bella Blvd | What's New...

Ok.. So the title of this blog post is supposed to say "Bella Blvd | What's New Wednesday".  I think I've kind of missed the deadline on this one! *grin* Oh! It's up on the Bella blog alright, but I definitely missed the mark when it has come time to share it here!  whoops!!
 
 
This layout was created using the new Campout collection.
 
"Our Camp"
 
products used: Bella BLVD - Campout: Daily Details, Under The Stars, Treasures & Text, Trinkets, Chipboard Icons; Color Chaos: Bell Pepper Strandz, Scallop Strandz, Blueberry Strandz; Lucky Starz: Scallop Starz; Hello Autumn: Treasures & Text; Ciao Chipboard: Whatnots; Sienna Chipboard Alphas: Blueberry; Enamel DooDads: Blueberry; High Five Alpha Stickers: Brown-Cream.
 
journaling - our favourite part of camping is when we get to sit around the fire, usually on the first night. we relax & listen to the bush settle for the night & watch the stars gently shine down upon us. it's a time to really talk to each other without the distractions of i-devises. I love how we all reconnect - family time.
 



 
We love going camping and I am so glad that Bella has created this new line! I can't wait to document more of our adventures using it!  Thanks for visiting..x

Scraptastic Club | Pinterest Monday..

Hi there!  I feel like I've been a stranger around these parts lately.  Sorry for the absence but with a household of sick children for the last two weeks, sometimes blogging gets put on the back burner! LOL!
 
Today I am sharing a layout created for Scraptastic Club | Pinterest MondayShellye McDaniel and I conspired together and found a gorgeous image on Pinterest.

"You are Nine"

 
products used: Scraptastic Club Kit - This Must Be The Place; Add on - This Must Be The Place; wood veneers - This Must Be The Place; tools - typewriter, circle punches.
 
 
I have used several sizes of circle punches and trimmed to create a straight edge across the punched patterned paper.  I have then overlapped the patterned paper from the This Must Be The Place kit (January) to create a similar design as seen in the Pinterest Inspiration.


To make it easier to line all the paper pieces together, I cut a thin strip of cardstock and adhered the circles to it before adding them to the final layout.  This also allowed me to easily adjust the placement around my photo, title and journaling.

 
Thanks for visiting! I hope I have shared a little inspiration to help you keep the mojo flowing.  Perhaps your next project will include a few arched and layered lines..x

Jot Magazine | February Mood Board...

Hello Friends!  Have you seen the latest mood board created for the JOT Magazine blog?  It is such a beautiful colour palette and totally suits February!
 
 
I found plenty of inspiration from the image but I started with the bright pop of red heart and the black and white stripes!  The bold stripes were toned down using Bella Blvd's new clear cuts transparency.
 
"dream"
 
products used: cs - American Crafts, Bazzill; pp - Crate Paper, Fancy Pants, Bella Blvd; other - Dear Lizzy water color word, Studio Calico gold stars, Maggie Holmes stickers, October Afternoon die cuts, enamel dots, Scraptastic Club flair/badge, Bella Blvd: transparency, label sticker; sequin; tools - machine stitching, paint, Heidi Swapp colorshine.

 
I love the heart string layers as well and just knew I needed to used them on my page in some form or the other.  I cut several heart shapes from both red cardstock and floral pp via my silhouette.  I then simply stitched the pp to the cardstock and folded the heart along the stitching line.
 



 
The Dear Lizzy water color word was coated with Heidi Swapp colorshine, which helped me bring some of the gold elements from the mood board onto my page.
 
 
If you would like to join along with our challenge, you can find all the details here!! There's already some amazing inspiration from the Jot Girls up on the blog with more to come throughout the month!  Scrappy Canary is this month's generous sponsor giving you a chance to win a $20 gift voucher.  I hope to see you there...x
