This week is our 2011-2012 Design Team's last week here on the Bella blog. But before saying our final goodbye, we still have a ton of projects from these designers to share with you. Yesterday was all about the Birthday Boy collection, and today we're focusing on the Birthday Girl collection.
"Happy B-Day", by Laura Vegas.
When I was choosing a few pieces from the Chipboard Icons to use on this layout of my daughter's 10th birthday, there were a few banner pieces that I decided to use. I thought it would be fun to create an entire banner border across my page. I used a mix of chipboard pieces, stickers, and patterned paper, adding a few embellishments to either side of the banner border. Hard to believe I was so shocked at Alyssa turning 10 years old in these photos ... seeing as how she's turning the big 16 this week!

"Birthday Wishes" card, by Laura Vegas.
If it's one type of card that I always need, it's birthday cards. The new birthday collections are great for whipping up tons of cards, so that you always have them on hand. I just picked a single chipboard piece, a couple pieces of patterned paper, some designer tape, and a few stickers, and before I knew it, I had a fun little card.

Covered Candy Treats, by Laura Vegas.
A popular and easy favor to hand out at birthday parties is candy. But it's even more fun if you make that candy look super cute, using your scrapbook supplies. For this jar of candy treats, I actually covered packs of bubble gum (I couldn't risk shipping chocolate to CHA in the summertime).
I measured the packs of gum, and cut pieces of patterned paper to wrap around them. Then I cut thinner strips of paper to wrap around the center of each pack of gum. I added a small strip of designer tape across the top of the pack, and then finished them off with a punched circle of patterned paper, buttons, and crochet flowers.
I also created this simple marker to stick into the jar, so that everyone knew what was inside.

"Happy Birthday to You" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
Chevrons seem to be all the rage these days! And I love the yellow chevron patterned paper in the Birthday Girl line! I used it as the background paper for this fun birthday card. Then I added chipboard, buttons, flags, and the sentiment (cut from the Borders sheet) to complete the card. Fun! Thanks for looking!

"Birthday Girl" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
I did a little paper-cutting on this card! The presents on the left side were cut out of the Cute Cuts sheet. I adhered them with foam adhesive so that they hang off the left edge of the card. Then over on the right side to compliment those presents, I added another present but this one is chipboard from the Birthday Girl Chipboard Icons. Using the Borders sheet, I added a sentiment to the inside of the card also. Thanks for looking!

"Birthday Girl" card, by Allyson Meinholz.
For this card I used Miles of Smiles as my base and then added border strips as the background, with a popped circle, chipboard icon cake, a flag and cut out a flower with a button to add dimension.

“Birthday Girl”, by Wendy Wagner.
Enjoyed using this line with these photos of Annalise on her 4th birthday. I loved layering the papers, inking and stickles!! Between the glitz and sparkles and layering I think this layout turned out super fun!!!

“Happy Birthday” card, by Wendy Wagner.
Fun little birthday card to hand out to someone special!! Lots of ink & glitz. I used the inside of the flat letters off the Alpha+Bitz Stickers for the 'inside' of the Ciao Chip letters!
