“Always Stay True”, by Megan Klauer.
I love to create layouts with quotes or large titles. The High Five & Sienna Alphabets paired with the Designer Tapes creates a fun & unique design. There are so many fun ways to change up this design idea!

“So Much Love”, by Diane Payne.
The Designer Tapes are a quick and easy way to add multiple patterns and colors to layouts and make super cute banners too. For an extra touch, I punched hearts into the tape.

“My Sweet Boy”, by Jennifer Chapin.
Bella’s designer tape makes a great background for this layout, and it’s a creative alternative to patterned paper. I kept the overall design simple and clean so it wouldn’t compete with the patterns in the tape and changed my photo to black and white.

“Goof Ball”, by Sheri Feypel.
I have a boy who loves to play it up for the camera. Recently he had a pair of glasses that he was acting "nerdy" in and I couldn't resist snapping some photos. I chose to pair my photos with some of the Kiss Me line and a variety of Designer Tapes. I created a base for my photos with the tape and added some to adhere the flag as well as one more strip on the bottom of the layout, because you know you can never have enough Designer Tape! I used the Chipboard Alphabets to make my title pop off the page overlapping some of the letters for fun.

"Party" card, by Jenny Evans.
I've had this card idea in my mind for awhile now, and thought that it would be perfect to showcase some of the new Designer Tapes! I cut different sized strips of cardstock and covered them with the tapes. I then cut the banner ends and stapled them onto another strip of cardstock so I could lay them on the card where I wanted them. I did this twice, two rows of banners. To give it even more dimension, I added foam adhesive behind various banners. I then added the black stitching to tie it all together.

"You Make My Days Better" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
I am a big fan of Bella Blvd's designer tapes. And the new ones this time around did not disappoint! You can't go wrong with stripes, polka dots, and chevrons!! I used the tapes on this card as part of the background and as the leaves for the flower. I love how the tapes coordinate so well with so many of the different Bella lines. Thanks for looking!
