“Baby Mae”, by Megan Klauer.
The Designer Tapes have been one of my favorite embellishments from Bella since they introduced them the first time. These bright new colors are the perfect compliment to this collection. Pair them with black & white photos for the perfect pop.

“You’re My Happy, by Jennifer Chapin.
Sometimes when I'm printing multiple photos at home I have some extra space on my sheet and I print a few extra small pictures that are my favorites. These two pictures just happened to be laying on my desk when I had the idea for this layout so it worked out perfectly! I cut different colored strips of the Freestyle Sophisticates paper and used those for the base of my layout. Solid colored punched hearts reinforce the rainbow of colors.

“Right Now”, by Diane Payne.
I love the fun, on trend patterns in the new Freestyle Sophisticates collection. The color palette is beautiful and can coordinate with any theme photo in black and white.

“Love For Life”, by Laura Vegas.
I love having great basic patterned papers that can coordinate with any and all collections, which is exactly what the new Freestyle Sophisticates papers do. It's so easy to pick out a few colors of the fun hand drawn chevron patterned paper to coordinate with the other patterned papers that you want to use on your layouts or cards. I only used a small strip of paper from the Kiss Me collection on this layout, but managed to pair it up with 4 different shades of the Freestyle papers.

“Today And Everyday”, by Malika Kelly.
I love this picture of my three kids and thought it was a great way to document this daily moment that I won't want to forget. Somewhere in the mid afternoon, my daughter starts wondering about "her boys." When will they be home? Is it time to go get them? I want to be able to remember how much she looks up to her big brothers and how happy she is when they come home...It won't always be this way! I used the bright colors of the freestyle patterned papers to make three rows of chevrons, to represent the three kids. This new Freestyle Chevron paper is awesome to work with. Cut a super thin strip and it looks like a piece of tape!

"I Love These Sweet Smiles", by Jenny Evans.
The Freestyle Sophisticates collection is full of amazing colors and such a fun design! I cut the paper into strips and stitched them onto my layout like arrows. Lots of arrows, lots of stitching! This is definitely a different style than what I normally do, but I love the look of it! I framed the photos with the title and some other embellishments, including the new Crochet Hearts and Designer Tapes.
