{happy birthday stephanie...


Today is Stephanie, the fabulous queen of Bella's birthday & we are celebrating with a blog hop full of card inspiration. So, for those that are just joining me, you will want to go to the Bella Blvd blog, so you can start at the beginning of the blog hop. You don't want to miss anything!


{Sophisticates}: Sprinkles & Lace {Banana}, Ciao Chip - Essentials Ice & Chlorine, Simply Simona Oreo, Stickers - Miniatures Family
{Sweet Celebration}: Treats & Sweets, Party Hearty

Even thought it's Stephanie's birthday, we have some gifts for a few of you lucky readers as well! We know how generous and giving Stephanie is, and we know she would never have a fun blog hop, without a few giveaways up for grabs too. So we got permission from Robin, who works alongside Stephanie in the office, to pick TEN lucky winners, who will each receive a Bella Blvd collection. All you need to do to be entered in the random drawings, is to leave Stephanie your birthday wishes in the comment section. You have lots of opportunities to up your chances, since you can leave a comment on each blog you visit, as you go through the blog hop. There are 26 blogs, plus the Bella Blvd blog, for a total of 27 chances to get your name in the pot. We will randomly choose winners, from 10 randomly choosen blogs, and announce them on Friday!

For the next stop on the blog hop, you are going to go visit Kryssi Ng!

Happy Birthday Stephanie!!!

{JBS Dec gallery reveal...

I am having so much fun with this kit! Here's a few projects I was able to put together...

This layout is a combination of the paper crafting kit, the artisan add-on and coredinations cardstock for the base. It was fun to stick to a simple color combination which allowed the pink blanket behind Ella to stand out.
{Slice design card used: Noel}


I LOVE this project kit! I used it a bit different, but that's what I love about these kits. You can make them your own. And the 7 Gypsies paper tape....swoon! I can't get enough!
I used a scrap piece of the MME paper from the Papercrafting kit for my cover & the happy days is from the packaging of MME buttons. Don't forget the packaging sheet from those wonderful JBS bingo cards too!




Each months page is going to be a place for me to write my goals and hopefully a bit of inspiration as I work on meeting them.

{run...dec jbs mercantile kit....

Today I had the chance to play a bit more with the December JBS Merchantile kit. Be sure and check it out, you'll love it!


I have been wanting to scrapbook these photos from a race my friend & I recently did. But, I had SO many and I'm just not a 2 page person. {I struggle with doing those for some reason.} So, I printed them about 1.5x1.5 inch. The larger photo is 3x3 inches to make it stand out a bit. The pattern of the My Minds Eye paper from the main kit reminds me of the many hills we climbed that day. Love it!


{Don't forget about the 7 Gypsies paper tape from the project kit...perfect for attaching all those little pics.}

{ JBS dec mercantile kit...

There is so much more I want to do with the Dec JBS Mercantile kit! Here's just a start:

I used primarily the main kit for this layout with a few buttons mixed in from the Artisan kit. Love the OA stickers in the main. And I couldn't resist grabbing a bit of the wonderful tape from the project kit. So LOVING that! My title is cut with my Slice.

Check out the dt gallery HERE.

{live 4 today...

When I first saw the inspiration piece this month I knew right away that I wanted to do a vertical title. I love to play with my title work and this was a great excuse! I continued with the vertical design by using strips of paper to mimic the books shown in the original piece. I finished it off with just a few horizontal pieces to balance it all out and to keep the eye flowing.



Finally Fall: Quadrants, Cute Cuts, Leaf Pile, Borders, Bliss, At the Patch, Alpha + Bits, Journaling Stickers, & Icons; Sophisticates: Chipboard Simona #s White, Chipboard Simona Salt Water

{christmas wish list...

I thought it would be fun to create a layout about what is on my kids' wish list this year. It will be interesting to look back and see all the popular "wishes". I'm sure they will have lots to add to this list the closer we get to the 25th of Dec.
