It's been over a month since we had our last Layouts on Wednesdays feature. I love giving the designers a chance to do some free-for-all layouts each month, since it gives them free reign to scrap anything their heart desires. Let's check out what they have for us this week!
"Where Did the Year Go?", by Becky Williams.
Time passes by so quickly that I have wanted to document the little milestones in my kids' lives and it's hard to believe but our baby girl is already one year old. And, as I type this, it's been a few months since these pictures were taken. For this layout, I used flowers from the Cute Cuts sheet (so cute!) and lots and lots of the Designer Tape. Here I have showed two ways to draw attention to your title: strips of Designer Tape and a mix of different-colored alpha stickers. Don't be afraid to mix things up!
Birthday Girl: Cute Cuts, Borders, Pretty As a Present, Alpha+Bits Stickers, Just Write Journaling Stickers; Designer Tape: Pickle Juice Dot, Jailbird, Gulf Dot, Punch Chevron, Orange Stripe, Piggy Pink Stripe, Yellow Chevron; High Five Alphabets Stickers: Yellow, Pink-Red, Black-White, Blue
"Family Turkey Hunt", by Megan Klauer.
When I saw the adorable turkeys in the Thankful collection I knew exactly which photos & memory I would record. This spring was the first year my hubby & I had the chance to turkey hunt all together with our boys. We saw so much wildlife on that beautiful morning. What a great memory!
Thankful: Turkey Tracks, Burlap, Homey, Borders, Cute Cuts, Chipboard Icons; Birthday Boy: Alpha+Bits Stickers; Flags: Thankful Flags 1, Thankful Flags 2, Fall; Button Market: Checkers, Neutrals Mix; High Five Alphabets: Blue
"New York", by Katherine McElvain.
Sometimes quick and easy layouts are necessary and this time the Bella Blvd Designer Tape helped me accomplish a quick layout with a fun twist. I saw the idea of making a city skyline on a card on Pinterest. It looked so cute! So I decided to scrap this picture of my son and I when he won a trip to New York. I added some of the Ciao Chip Clouds and a little tree to make the tape look more like a cityscape. And with all the choices on the High Five Alphabets it was easy to find the perfect sticker letters to use for the title. Add some pen lines and call it finished.
Birthday Boy: Alpha+Bits Stickers; Thankful: Perfect Day, Borders; Designer Tape: Orange Stripe, Pickle Juice Chevron, Jail Bird, Blue Gingham, Yellow Chevron, Aqua Dot, Teal Stripe; High Five Alphabets: Black-White; Ciao Chip Elements: Clouds, Trees
"Picking Rasperdies With Poppy", by Melissa Stinson.
With all the new collections from Bella starting to hit store shelves, I thought this would be a great time to make a layout showing how many Bella collections, both old and new, work well together. This page is a combination of three newer lines- Sunshine+Happiness, Baby Girl, and Spring Flings & Easter Things- along with Sunny Happy Skies, which is quite a bit older. Since Bella uses many similar colors across all the collections, older papers that you may have in your stash can be "freshened up" and used along with all the new ones, too!
Baby Girl: Pretty in Pink; Sunshine & Happiness: Juicy Good Time, Play Date, Popsicle Kisses; Sunny Happy Skies: Cute Cuts, Alpha+Bits Stickers; Spring Flings & Easter Things: Flags; Simply Simona Chipboard Alphas: Peep; Crochet Flowers: Dahlia
