Bella Blvd pinspiration!

Good morning!! I am off for a week to Las Vegas with my husband and some friends - YAY!!! Before I go, I wanted to share with you a Pinterest inspired project I did for Bella Blvd. this week.

You have to head over to the blog to see the original Pinterest piece - but it was full of black and white and some pops of color... so I used that to create this page!

If you check out the pinterest piece on the Bella blog, you will see that I used the placement of the decor pieces as a sketch for my page. I do this often when coming up with backgrounds for pages, etc.

I used some teal mist and painted it onto the top area of the cardstock base to add a little color before adding my title, using a paper piece from Bella Blvd.

I tried to keep the neutral theme using mostly black and white and just a few pops of color - pink and teal.

I'll be back in a few days with a couple more projects and Cocoa Daisy November kit sneaks! Stay tuned :)

Jillibean Soup Cards

While I am away in Vegas with the hubby.... I thought I would share a few cards I created for the Jillibean Soup blog this month. I dove right into my stash of scraps to create these and they came together so quickly!

First up, is this all yellow card using lots of Jillibean Soup Wood Sprinkles. I quite simply cut 1" squares of different yellow patterned papers and added them to a card front. Add a little machine stitching, a diecut title and a few wood spinkles and you are done!


This next card is a Jillibean Soup mini placemat that I trimmed down slightly. I trimmed off the words that were on the bottom of the placemat and will use that on another project. I added some glitter paper and more small scraps of other colours for fun. I glued them behind the smaller stars and popped the whole thing up with foam adhesive. A soup label sentiment finishes off the card!

I'll be back soon with a video tutorial for Jillibean Soup!
