“Hello Halloween” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
I know I've said it before, but the new Trick or Treat collection is my favorite Halloween collection ever! I just adore the fun colors and super cute images! For my card, I combined a couple of patterned papers, a couple of Paper Pieces, some Alpha+Bits stickers, and a Crochet Heart.

“You Are My Favorite” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
Woodgrain and hearts. They just go together so well, don't they? I absolutely love the fun new papers in the Snapshots papers! I combined Pajama Day and Daily Details (I used the backs of each) along with some Paper Pieces, a Crochet Heart, a Feather, Designer Tape, a sticker, and a Button Market button.

"First Day Back To School", by Jenny Evans.
I pulled my main colors from the photos, and then added some pops of color in my embellishments. I love how easy it is to mix different Bella collections and have it coordinate so well! This is my last layout as a Bella Blvd Designer, and I just wanted to say THANK YOU to Stephanie, Laura and all the other girls for making this past year amazing!!

“Friends”, by Kim Jeffress.
I have a wonderful group of friends that I have met over the last 5 years since moving interstate. I adore this photo taken recently of two of these friends so I wanted to create a bright happy layout to express my bright happy thoughts. I used the yellow chevron from the Daily Chevies collection as a base that was layered over the Rise and Shine pattern paper from Snapshots and then filled the central part of my layout with stickers and shapes from the cardstock stickers sets for a whimsical feel. I matted my Photo with the Little Birdie pattern paper from Playdate, I love how there is more fun yellow patterns on my page. To complete I scattered in a few colored sequins to add just a touch of glamour.

“Mommy's Nights Out”, by Jaclyn Rench.
Whenever my mommy friends and I enjoy a night away from the kiddos, it usually involves food, conversation, laughs and lots of picture taking! I thought it would be fun to put together a photo strip of some of my favorites, to document this girl's night tradition. To convey my fun and girly page theme, I knew I wanted to include lots of color and lots of patterns. Initially, I started snipping triangles from some of my very favorite papers in both the Snapshots and Everyday Chevies collections. From there, I couldn't resist reaching into my scraps from some of the prior releases to round out the theme and color palette. I love that this page feels a bit like a party, because spending time with my favorite girlfriends is definitely something worth celebrating!
