Welcome to "What's New Wednesday"! Every Wednesday, our designers will be sharing projects using the latest and greatest products from Bella Blvd. Especially our newest collections, which our designers are having so much fun creating with!
Bucket of Treats, by Laurie Schmidlin.
I have been wanting to cover some mini candy bars with the Trick or Treat collection for a while now. I think the fun patterns are the perfect decoration for them! Because I didn't want to cover up too much of the papers, I kept the embellishments simple. I added some High Five Alphabet stickers to the bucket, embellished with a couple of buttons, and then tied on a ready made tag (from the new Trick or Treat Paper Pieces)! This was such a quick and fun project and I can't wait to give it to my son's teacher!

Frightful Notebook, by Laurie Schmidlin.
Sometimes I like to create something that is not full of sugar for Halloween, and this altered notebook featuring the new Trick or Treat Collection will be the perfect gift for my son's teacher! I used a combination of patterned papers, Paper Pieces, Alpha+Bits stickers to decorate the handmade cover for this notebook. I even decorated the inside using some of the same elements as on the front!

Halloween Candy Centerpiece, by Patti Milazzo.
This Halloween Candy Centerpiece is cute, quick to make and practical. The base provides 4 pockets to fill with candy and it’s created in the same way as a “cootie catcher” that’s been turned upside down. A painted dowel inserted into a small spool under the base is inserted in the center and the Halloween sign created with Bella Blvd’s Trick or Treat collection of stickers and die cut shapes is attached at the top. Then Designer Tape is wrapped around the dowel below the sign to form small flags with sticker labels.

“WonderFall”, by Jennifer Chapin.
I just love doing fall themed layouts. Definitely my favorite season to scrapbook. On this page, I combined some of the newer lines -- Snapshots, Daily Chevies and the new cardstock stickers and paper pieces -- with Bella's fall line Thankful. The collections blended together effortlessly and I ended up with a bright, fun cohesive layout. I hope you will take some time to scrapbook the details of fall. It's worth remembering!
