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!
“Christmas Morn 2011”, by Katie Rose.
I had a lot of pictures I wanted to use for this layout so I decided to go with a grid pattern and use several small, square photos from our Christmas morning. I used pop dots on the photos and stickers to set them apart from the background and give the layout some added dimension.

“Snap, Snap, Snap”, by Wendy Antenucci.
Daily Chevies is my favorite collection ever, the bold colors, playful feel just shout my son! Course he is always shouting so maybe that is why, lol. I chose these pictures of my son taking photos of me as I snapped his photo and paired them with the Oreo Chevy paper which adds instant motion to the page, a few hand drawn sketchy circles completed the energy of the page. Even though hearts and pink might not be boy colors, I had so much energy on the page that I felt it was safe to add in a little bit of sweetness - just like my boy. I combined bits and pieces of the Snapshots line and also the Christmas countdown as they mix and match so well to complete my layout.

“Take Note” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
One of my favorite things about Bella, is that almost all of the collections can be mixed together! That opens up infinite design possibilities! For my card, I combined papers from the Daily Chevies collection with design elements from the Snapshots collection. For embellishment, I added a Bella Orange Star button.
Snapshots: Alpha+Bits, Captions, Paper Pieces; Daily Chevies: Chevy Gulf, Chevy Pickle Juice, Chevy Bell Pepper; Designer Tape: Chevron, Combo; Button Market: Orange Stars
“Merry Christmas” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
I still can't put down the Christmas Countdown collection! The fun and playful patterns mixed with the gorgeous Bella colors make my heart skip a beat every time! I layered some vellum over a piece of the Borders paper so that the focal images would really pop. Both the penguin and sentiment are from the Christmas Countdown Paper Pieces pack.

Christmas Feather card, by Morgan Bandkowski.
The Crochet Hearts are probably one of my favorite Bella Blvd embellishments. I think they add so much to a card, tag or scrapbook page. The feathers are also a great way to add a little extra to a card. I used both of these items on this quick and easy Christmas card.
Christmas Countdown: Christmas, Paper Pieces; Freestyle Sophisticates: Freestyle Pickle Juice; Crochet Hearts: Scallop; Feathers: Bell Pepper
Blue Christmas card, by Morgan Bandkowski.
I love using the Designer Tapes and decided to layer strips of the ice stripe to create a border on this card. Then I cut a couple strips of paper. I folded one of them and placed them in the center of the card. Lastly I added a punched heart.
