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. Today we have a handful of layouts to share.
"Scooter", by Kim Arnold.
The colors in the Making the Team range were made to go with these photos of my son riding his scooter. I love how versatile this range is, in that it can work perfectly for sport pages as well as bold and colorful boy pages! Don’t have enough “o”s in the letters you want to use? No problems! The circle star designs on the Volleyball patterned paper made perfect substitutes.
Making the Team: Cute Cuts, Volleyball, Wall of Fame, Chipboard Icons; Mr Boy: Chit Chat Chipboard, Just Write Journaling Stickers; Simply Simona Chipboard Alphas: Oyster
"Infectious Smile", by Laura Vegas.
I used a fun mix of chipboard elements on this layout. I started by picking out a combination of the chipboard alphas. I used the newer white text, the pink, and the blue. Then I added in some older lowercase green alphas, and yellow and pink alpha stickers. After choosing my alpha colors, I set out to pick my patterned papers, pulling from the Birthday Boy collection, Birthday Girl collecion, Thankful collection, and a few older collections. I used my favorite grid patterned paper for the main part of my layout. It gives the nice white background, so that everything else "pops" on the page, but still has a bit of interest with the grid lines. I also used lots of chipboard pieces from the Sophisticates collection. The sun and clouds, a trio of trees, and some border pieces.

"The Games Country Boys Play", by Megan Klauer.
I used the hearts & the circles from my son's target practice drawings & mimicked those in my design. The Our Spot sheet was perfect for getting multiple colored circles. I was able to make a bold statement with a large title. One of my favorite things to do!

“Daddy”, by Sue Mylde.
6x12 is a fun size to create with! I have been experimenting with different styles and have been enjoying using this page size to focus on one photo, sharing a story. This is my hubby and son at a fun visit by the lakeside. I love working with different collections and combining different elements on one page. My favorite part is the sticker 'Dad' added to a fun wooden button. Also, who says you can't have hearts on a boy's page :)
