Welcome back to the second day of our week long team up with Petaloo! We have a group of our Bella designers that have mixed Petaloo fun flowers, ribbons, and brads into our projects. And the Petaloo designers have been busy mixing Bella's collections and embellishments into their projects. We have loads of projects to share with you and today we are featuring projects by designers Shellye McDaniel and Kathy Martin.
“Baby Love Congrats” card, by Shellye McDaniel.
A palette of baby boy pastels are the charm of this sweet little card. I paired up elements from the Baby Boy Collection which I found matched perfectly with the green in the Chartreuse Embossed Daisies. For the centers of the flowers, I used a 1/2" circle punch and then layered the pieces onto the flowers with a foam square. A large glittered brad sits at the top and brings a nice bit of shine.

“I Love You” card, by Shellye McDaniel.
For this card I used a tone on tone combination which I separated with an edging of pink ric rac trim around the journal sticker. A cluster of chipboard hearts layered with Petaloo embellished crochet hearts sit below the speech bubble sticker. I cut apart one of the Green Assorted Daisies and fashioned them into leaves around the hearts. I love the addition of the rose brads at the center of each flower and they were so easy to insert through the crochet heart centers.

“Easter 2013”, by Shellye McDaniel.
Following an 8.5x11 sketch from Page Maps, I created this layout using several fun collections from Bella Blvd and a circle of Mini Florettes by Petaloo. After cutting a large scalloped circle, I added a border of the Mini Florettes along the edge. I staggered the blooms in color and also raised every-other-one with a foam square. A small ribbon bow made a delicate bridge between the two different areas of the page. To the center of the flower circle I was able to add a journal sticker to tell of the Easter Day.

“Sand And Surf” mini album, by Shellye McDaniel.
It seemed that a flower shaped chipboard album was fitting for a Petaloo and Sand & Surf mini! For the cover page, I focused on layering as many of the flower varieties together to show how well they could mix 'n match; the colors blended beautifully with the Sand & Surf Collection. Throughout the pages blooms can be found either layered or clustered together. I love that the Florettes have jeweled centers ... just the right amount of bling!

For this card I combined Petaloo’s pretty flowers, brads and trim with Bella Blvd’s new Sand & Surf collection, a match made in paradise, don’t you think?

“Sugar Cookies”, by Kathy Martin.
On Valentine’s Day I baked heart shaped sugar cookies for my boys. Christopher loved coming home from school to the sweet aroma and taste of fresh baked cookies. To preserve these memories I used Bella Blvd’s new Love and Marriage collection accented with these gorgeous paper flowers and brads from Petaloo.

Flower Trinket Box, by Kathy Martin.
I love pretty little boxes. They make the perfect place to tuck away tiny goodies like jewelry or mementos. The focal point of this project is the layered Petaloo flowers topped with a wood button from Bella Blvd’s Button Market collection. The sides of this balsa wood box were easily decorated with Bella’s Designer Tape.
