“Beauty is All Around”, by Jennifer Chapin.
Bella's feathers were just perfect do document some beautiful photos I had from scenes around the yard this spring and summer. I lined them up along the left side of my layout using staples to secure them to the background. After adding my cardstock and photos all the staples are nicely covered.

“Brand New”, by Brook Stewart.
I have to say…this layout is one of my most favorite ever! I adhered a rainbow of feathers to some white cardstock and attached the rest of the pattern papers on top with foam tape to accommodate the “bulk” stems of the feathers. It also adds some extra depth which is great! The colors went perfectly with the Beach Ball paper in the Sand & Surf collection. The photo is of our girl, not even 12 hours old at the hospital (hospital pictures have sure come a long way in the last several years!). And can I just say that I am SO in love with these new cardstock die cut packs that come with the new collections?! Ahhh-Mazing!! Photo by: Chic Pea Photography

“Birthday Princess”, by Brook Stewart.
For our girl’s first birthday, I used the color scheme of pink, gold and mint/teal (one of my favorite combos right now!!) I have to admit…I was a little nervous working with the feathers, but turns out, I absolutely adore them! They were really easy to work with and this color combo paired with some of the new Snapshots collection highlighted one of my favorite photos from her party perfectly!

“This Girl”, by Sheri Feypel.
This Girl is my Best Friend and I felt the need to put it on a layout! I chose to use a smaller instagram photo and to make it stand out a bit more I added one of Bella’s new frames from the Paper Pieces packets. I backed it all up with some large pink Chevrons and continued to build with feather, stickers, crochet hearts and arrows. I really went out on a limb here and added a bit of handwritten journaling, talk about stepping outside of my comfort zone!

“Family Card” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
I absolutely love how all of the Bella collections coordinate wonderfully with the Feathers! They truly are an all occasion embellishment! I used two different Feathers on my card as well as several of the new papers and embellishments from the new Snapshots collection!

“Cherish” ornament tag, by Laurie Schmidlin.
When I started to create my Christmas tag, I immediately thought that a Bella Feather would be the perfect embellishment! Tags are such a wonderful way to dress up any gift, and adding a Feather makes it even more special! I cut out an ornament shape using two different patterned papers from the new Christmas Countdown collection. Along with the Feather, I embellished it with some coordinating stickers and a Bella Button!
Christmas Countdown: City Sidewalks, Tree Park, Alpha+Bits; Feathers: Pickle Juice; Button Market: Snowflakes
“Thinking Of You” card, by Sheri Feypel.
I was asked to create a card that focused on the Bella Blvd Feathers, so I went ahead and trimmed the feathers down to look like leaves. I layered them and brought it all together with a bit of twine. I have to say that at first I found the feathers to be a little intimidating, but the more I used them the more I like them!
Trick Or Treat: Leaf Storm; Feathers: Pickle Juice, Bell Pepper, Saltwater; Playdate: Tabs
