Today is our free-for-all layout sharing day, and we definately have a fun variety of layouts from our designers, along with a mini album share. We have an extra little surprise as well, as designer Jennifer Chapin filmed a video about her process of assembling her album. Kind of exciting, as I'm pretty sure this is the very first video to come to the Bella blog!
“Happy”, by Katherine McElvain.
This was a fun layout to put together. I had long ago seen a layout with a sun made out of scraps and a button center and today recreated it with all sorts of Bella yellow scraps. Going with the piece together a l theme, I also made the title out of a number of different chipboard pieces trying to create a fun, whimsical look at the top of the page.

“Hen’s Night”, by Kim Jeffress.
I am finally getting around to scrapbooking my hens night (similiar to a bachelorette party) from 8 years ago. The colors in the Engaged at Last collection were a perfect match for the colors in my photos. I had several extra photos so I created a little fold out booklet that I added the photos to. You can see it blends in with the Bachelorette Party pattern paper and I tied it with some thin gold ribbon to complete.

"Dance", by Yohko Takiguchi.
I chose the All American Collection for this layout, matching the colors to my son’s T-shirt in the photos. I started by pulling out Scallop paper from Freestyle Sophisticate collection as my background paper. I love this collection because they are versatile. I created a cluster on the right side of the photo using stickers, chipboards and flower from Cute Cuts.

“Day In The Life” album, by Jennifer Chapin.
Last week I participated in Day in the Life. It's a great way to document those everyday details that you might not normally include in your scrapbooks. I decided to use a 6"x8" binder album, project life style, to document my day. I finished the cover and the first few pages for my project this week. I've also created a video to show you a bit of my process.
