“It's A Girl” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
For my card, I combined a stamped image with a sweet bear from the Baby Girl Cute Cuts paper. I had lots of fun adding several embellishments: a crochet flower, a star button, a tag, a Ciao Chip, as well as a paper doily and ribbon. All of this is layered on the Bella Baby Bump paper and a strip of Sophisticates Sprinkles & Lace Punch paper.

“Hold On To Each Other”, by Laurie Schmidlin.
I just love how so many of the different collections work so well together! Here, I combined the Sophisticates and Sunshine & Happiness collections. For the focal image, I layered two different Ciao Chip pieces combined with a heart sticker (from the Sophisticates Miniatures Card Sentiments).

“Birthday Girl” card, by Kathy Martin.
I love ice cream! Especially on my birthday and it’s been a tradition for years to have ice cream cake. I thought this ice cream border would be perfect for a birthday card, that and a whimsical pinwheel. Together they are fun, celebratory and yummy!

“Love” card, by Kathy Martin.
After Christmas, my favorite cards to make are Valentine’s! I’m a hopeless romantic and I love to give and receive mushy love cards! Bella Blvd’s new Kiss Me collection is perfect for creating all kinds of love notes, and not just for Valentine’s Day. Anniversaries are my favorite, just because.

"Happy 2013" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
I hope y'all had a great Christmas! And I hope you have a happy new year! I dug through some classic Bella Blvd to make this card. Remember the super fun Socialite collection from a couple summers ago? Well, it is still the perfect line for all your New Year's layouts and cards! I finished this card off with some of the fun buttons from the Button Market-I thought they coordinated very well with this line! Thanks for looking and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

"Stay Warm" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
And happy Winter while we are at it! It's cold outside and I thought I would make a card celebrating it! :) I cut the trees out of the Winter Wonder Cute Cuts sheet to use as big embellishments on this card. I used lots of foam adhesive when adhering the trees and stickers to help give this card lots of dimension. Thanks for looking! And stay warm out there!

“Happy Winter” card, by Wendy Wagner.
Something cute to remind someone that your thinking of them after the holidays with this cute winter card. Inking and stickles for everything, I tied a decent size bow on the card as well. Love the Bella flags, so it was fun to incorporate the snowflake flag on this card! Happy winter everyone!

“Perfect Day” card, by Wendy Wagner.
Cute little 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 card for wishing someone a Merry Christmas. As always I ink away at everything, distressed one corner of the pickle juice paper and layered with foam pop dots. I love bling, so between stickles and some gems I think it pulled the card together nicely.
