Do we all know what tomorrow is? It's Valentine's Day! To help celebrate all things having to do with love, I asked some of our Design Team members to create projects with a Valentines or love theme to them. They definately did NOT disappoint! We have tons of amazing projects to share with you over the next few days. So sit back, relax, and let us inspire you!
"I love You So Much", by Megan Klauer.
For this layout I wanted to incorporate different papers & elements from a variety of the new collections. I went searching through my stash for pinks & red, but when I came across all the wonderful yellows in the Sunshine & Happiness collection, I knew it would be a fun twist to the everyday "love" color scheme. I used the chipboard alphabet stickers to recreate a quote I found on Pinterest. The large letters allowed me to make the quote the focal point of my page.

"I Love Us", by Lynn Ghahary.
It's very rare that my husband and I have a photo of just the two of us so I was so thrilled when our photographer snapped a few pics during a recent family photo shoot this past fall. I used the Lovey Dovey collection to document these photos on a layout. I love that this love themed collection doesn't have the typical red, white, and pink color scheme that you see in so many Valentine's Day collections but rather a fun palette that includes gray, pink, purple, and turquoise. A fun twist on a long overdue layout about my one true love!

"Lots Of Love" card, by Kathy Martin.
I love the non-traditional Valentine colors of the flirty line because you can create a lot more than love and Valentine's projects. This elephant, for example, would be adorable on a baby congratulations card, don't you think? This line, like all Bella Blvd collections, has everything you need to create great looking projects ... borders, stickers, phrases, you name it!

"Sweetheart" card, by Kathy Martin.
The Flirty line has a lot of adorable patterns and phrases that make it easy to create great projects with! This collection is perfect for Valentine's Day projects as well as anniversary, friendship and more! I really like these fun and funky flowers and I can't get enough of the Miniatures stickers with phrases just right for a variety of purposes!

"Valentines", by Vivian Masket.
I love how versatile the Sophisticates Sprinkles & Lace papers are! The Peep and McIntosh colors were perfect for this Valentine's Day layout - I punched a bunch of hearts from the papers and used both the Sprinkles side and the Lace side of the papers to vary the patterns and intensity of color in the rows of hearts. The coordinating products made adding additional embellishments and journaling a snap.

"Sweet Little Valentine Treat", by Wendy Wagner.
Sweet Little Valentine Treat was from 2008 when my little princess was oh so tiny, 4 years & 11 months old. Grandma had made these yummy valentine cupcakes and Annalise enjoyed licking off the frosting! So much of the Bella Blvd product could have been used for this layout. I used brown paint and brown chalk ink for all the edges of my papers and pop dotted the tile of paper with the cupcakes on it and pop dotted one cupcake. Stickles of course on the letters, as I always love a little glitter :)

"LOVE" altered wooden letters, by Jennifer Edwardson.
I love love, love these wooden letters. They've been sitting on my shelf begging me to cover them. I chose the word love and it sits in my office because I LOVE to be there scrapbooking and I LOVE that my family supports my addiction to pretty paper. And I LOVE them too! I traced around the letters, sanded the edges and adhered with quick dry liquid glue then 'scrapbooked' the 'o' with bits from my favorite Bella embellishments. Now this word still sits in my office but looks much prettier I think!
