“My Valentines”, by Becki Adams.
This is one of my favorite photos of all time! Just after I took this photo I knew I wanted to scrapbook it with the Kiss Me Collection. I wanted to create a fun accent with my favorite of the embellishments, designer tape, so I hand cut the shape of a heart from white cardstock and covered it with all the different tapes that coordinate with the Kiss Me collection. I love the results. The heart made the perfect accent without overpowering my photos.

“Friends Bring Color To Our Lives”, by Gina Lideros.
I wanted to create a vibrant fun layout that was as youthful as the teens in my photos. Bella's High Five alpha's & Alpha + Bits cardstock stickers helped make my title come to life. To complete the look I created these fun whimsical circles paired with Bella's Flags and Crocheted hearts. Bella’s designer tapes are also a great way to make a statement. I paired them together to make a fun border for this layout.

“Happiness”, by Sheri Reguly.
After converting my photo to black & white, my patterned paper options became limitless. The “slice of life” sentiment from the Sunshine & Happiness collection was a perfect match for my journaling and fun, lovin’ photo. I combined it with the colorful chevron pattern from the Kiss Me collection, and then turned to the Sophisticates for my background patterned paper. A few simple embellishments complete this quick and easy design.

"Family Photos: This is How We Roll", by Becky Williams.
As many of you might know, getting a family picture can be kind of tricky with little kids. My girls are definitely no exception. These photos were taken last Halloween and instead of trying to get the "perfect" picture I finally just gave up but wanted to scrap these ones anyway. So, here are my four girls- one little witch hiding under her hat, one screaming baby and two big sisters making silly faces. I used a journaling card from the Sand & Surf collection as the basis for my page, covering up the vacation-themed wording since I loved the black stripe with the teal so much. The little pink heart and the orange arrow are also from that little card.

“Paige”, by Becki Adams.
My precious newborn niece is smiling these days. Her smiles melt my heart. I captured a few of them the other day while she was playing on the floor. I wanted this page to be very girly with lots of pink and purple. When I dove into my stash of Bella goodies I immediately pulled out the Birthday Girl collection. I did some fussy cutting and ended up with lots of flowers for the layout.

“Posing Pretty”, by Gina Lideros.
I recently created this heart cutting file on my Silhouette Cameo and I couldn't wait to use it with some yummy Bella products. I cut my file out of kraft paper and then backed it with Bella papers and designer tapes. The colors in these lines complimented each other and made this layout come to life.
