New Bella Blvd

If you've visited my blog more than a few times, you know that I'm in LOVE with Bella Blvd. Their collections are adorable and always so much fun. And, they've come out with three new mid-releases (for the first time ever!). They're called Winter Wonder, Spring Flings and Easter Things, and Miniature Stickers. Ah, I cannot wait for these to hit stores!

The Good Life

Here's my final layout using the Nantucket collection from Pink Paislee. I had such a great time with this collection and I will definitely be stocking up on some more because I'm just so in love with this line! The soft colors stole my heart along with the fabulous hexagon chipboard pieces - they were just so much fun! And with paper names like "Crab Cakes" and "Lobster Bisque" you really cannot go wrong =P

Seaside

I'm so excited that I get to play with Pink Paislee's Nantucket this month. The colors are gorgeous and the embellishments in this collection are so much fun. Between the hexagon chipboard pieces and the die-cuts, you're sure to find something that you just love. Seriously, I spent a good hour or so going through the package of die-cuts. It's just jammed packed with goodness - over 120 pieces!

Playful Pup

Whew, I've been busy! Between a crazy work schedule and preparing for Josh's sister's wedding, I haven't had a lot of time to do anything else. But, I did manage to complete a few layouts throughout everything. And, by the way, their wedding was absolutely fabulous!

I love to scrap photos of my pup - I mean, what's cuter, right?! Bella Blvd's collection is perfect and was so much fun to play with. If you have a dog (or a cat), you need this collection. LCOM looks like they're pretty much sold out, but because Bella Blvd never disappoints, you should check out their new collections in store here!!!



Supplies

Bella Blvd's "Tail Wagger's and Cat Naps"
Maya Road buttons
Twine from the Twinery

This month I'll be working with another collection I've fallen in love with - Pink Paislee's Nantucket. Check back this week to see what I create!

Ormolu

One thing I absolutely LOVE about LCOM is that they're not afraid to bring in different manufactures. I first learned about 4 heures 37 from them, and now I'm learning about Ormolu! Check out all of this deliciousness:

Summer

It's time for my last project using the Simple Stories "100 Days of Summer" collection. I had a blast with this line because there are so many journaling cards and their sticker sheet is awesome! So, for this layout I wanted to incorporate those two things, because they're so much fun!


The "summer" banner was cut out of one of adorable patterned papers, I then threaded twine through a hole I created on the top two corners and then I used brads to tie the twine on to so it looked a bit more like the banner was hanging.

An Address Book

I've been wanting to create an address book for quite some time, but I haven't found the right collection to play with. That all changed when I received the Simple Stories "100 Days of Summer" collection in the mail. The papers are gorgeous and there is a cute house that's perfect for the cover! I actually cut out one of the houses from a journaling card, framed it, and then added the house sticker from the sticker sheet on top for some dimension. It kind of looks like the trees are in the background!


I created the pages for the address book in MS Word - now I just need to start filling them out!


This chipboard mini album by Maya Road came with envelopes and I knew that one would be perfect for holding stamps. I may also put my return address labels in another one! If you're using an album that didn't come with envelopes, you can always adhere one to one of the inside covers.

Sun Kissed

One thing I love about Let's Capture Our Memories is their great selection! I've worked with so many lovely manufacturers and I've even been able to play with some companies that are new to me, including this month's Simple Stories. If you like Echo Park, I guarantee you'll love Simple Stories - 100 Days of Summer. This collection has a bit of a distressed look (which I love) and tons of tags and journaling cards - perfect for someone who enjoys fussy cutting as much as I do!


Yup, you guessed it - I cut out the sun and bathing suits from a journaling tag. But, if fussy cutting makes you a little nervous, there are element stickers in this collection that have these, too!

Krustyland

I can't believe that the month is pretty much over, and that means this is my last layout using the 4 Heures 37 collection. One thing that totally won me over with this collection is that even though it is travel-themed, it's not over-the-top, and can be used for every day photos as well! For my last project though, I did go with a bit of a travel theme - just because they're our newest photos. But really, these photos could've been taken anywhere, even in our back yard, because these papers just work so well with everything!

History 'Buffs'

I love to travel. I honestly try to head somewhere out of the country once a year. And because of that, I have a lot of vacation photos and I'm always looking for the next best travel line. Well, if you're like me, look no further -
4 Heures 37 has exactly what you're looking for!

On this page, I used more of the generic papers (there are some french-themed papers which I'm excited to use with my Paris photos!) because I thought they went well with these pictures from Italy. One of my absolute favorites that 4 Heures 37 has are these super cute little clouds. They're thicker than cardstock so they're not flimsy, but they're not ridiculously thick that your page will not fit in your page protector. Seriously, these clouds are the cutest things ever.


I did some hidden journaling, but I thought I'd pull it out a bit for the photos so you could see it!

Well, I hope you enjoyed this weeks gorgeous projects, as well as a week full of CHA madness. You know what one of the best things about CHA is (other than seeing all the beautiful products that may break the bank?), is all of the CHA sales. Speaking of which, I hear LCOM will be having an amazing sale on Monday to celebrate Christmas in July! Don't miss it!!

Kwik-E-Mart

Do you find that you're way busier during the summer and you find it almost impossible to get anything done? That's how I feel, so I completely forgot to share this layout when I finished it. Well, better late than never, right?!

For the title I cut out the letters from the patterned paper. I think it works well with this page, and even though I do love my Thickers, I need to try something different once in a while =P And I love the Sassafras calendar tags. They're so cute, and since I purchased 2 packages, I will be using the second to make some sort of mini album!



Supplies

Studio Calico's "State Fair"
Maya Road buttons and pins
Sassafras Lass calendar tags

Thanks for visiting, and until next time!
