“Love Flowers” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
I wanted to create a bright and cheerful "pick-me-up" card for my daughter, so I turned to the new Kiss Me collection! The beautiful and cheery colors and patterns are sure to bring a smile to her face! I used my Silhouette machine to cut out all of the shapes. I couldn't help but add some pretty Bella buttons on the flower centers ... they just make the card even more special!

“Birthday Wishes”, by Laurie Schmidlin.
I pulled papers and elements from several collections to create this soft and girly birthday card. Bella Blvd's Ciao Chip pieces and Crochet Flowers are such a quick and beautiful way to finish a card! Because I wanted them to be the focal points of my card, I used some dimensional tape to pop them up. To finish it off, I added some stitching around the card as well as on the heart.

“Sunshine & Happiness”, by Carina Lindholm.
On this card I cut out three flowers from the Cute Cuts patterned paper. I adhered the flowers to the card using pop dots to give the card some dimension. I also adhered some cute Bella blvd buttons in the centre of the flowers.

“Kram”, by Carina Lindholm.
I really love the warm colors in this thankful collection. For this card I cut out a bunch of flowers and leafs and adhered them in a cluster at the top of my card, and used letter stickers to spell out my sentiment. (Kram =Hugs)

“Gobble On” card, by Kathy Martin.
As November nears and Thanksgiving is just around the corner, I wanted to create a couple cards with the Thankful collection. The turkey image from this line makes me smile with its colorful plumage and pink heart on its breast. Who could resist a smile when looking at him?
Thankful: Homey, Borders, Alpha+Bits Stickers; Designer Tape: Pony Dot
“Fall” card, by Kathy Martin.
One of my favorite things about autumn are the colorful turning leaves so I thought this pretty Bella Blvd. tree would make a wonderful focal point for my second card. What do you think? Do you like all the vibrant leaves on this tree?
Thankful: Perfect Day, Alpha+Bits Stickers, Just Write Journaling Stickers; Button Market: Wood Mix
“Keep Calm & Gobble On” card, by Shellye McDaniel.
Starting with the word 'bubble' sticker, I created a vertical line of fun embellishments to help emphasize the sentiment. I layered two different buttons together by simply hand-sewing them together and attaching to the card with a sticky dot. The yellow ribbon mirrors the scalloped border sticker and helps to frame the cute 'lil turkey!

“Merry Christmas Magic” card, by Shellye McDaniel.
I'm a little late to the washi-love-craze, but a few recent challenges have me lovin' all of the things that you can create with it! For this card I wanted a banner hanging across the chipboard tree. I took strips of Red Dot Designer Tape and folded it around a length of baker's twine. After attaching the sticker letters I determined how long I wanted the banners to be and trimmed the ends with pinking shears. Simple and fun!
