Today we are sharing some free-for-all projects from our designers, where they have free reign to use whatever collections they like as they create.
“Oval Beach”, byKelly Holbrook.
I love to use layers. It's a fun way to incorporate a lot of different patterns without making your project look too busy. It's also a great way to get themed journaling cards or embellishments to fit into the story of your page. Here, the black and white journaling card was about traveling ... and we weren't really on a vacation, it was just a day at the beach. So, I flipped the card upside down, and tucked it behind the photo. This way I could still benefit from the lines for my journaling.

“Happy Birthday to You”, by Jodi Wilton.
For my daughters first birthday, I wanted to get a fun feel for the layout, and by clustering a variety of embellishments, in one corner was perfect for this large photo. I love how the focus is still on the pink with other punches of color throughout.

"Just Be You", by Sheri Feypel.
The new Max collection has me seeing stars! I love all of the fun, funky patterns in this line, I was a little worried that I might not be able to make it work for my older boys, well I was wrong! I was really wrong! As usual I added lots of layers with both pattern paper and the paper pieces. I even snuck a few hearts in with all of the stars. I chose to use a black and white photo to pop it off the page and have it stand out amongst all of the beautiful colors in the Max line. I went a little old school, digging into my Button Market stash, because you know you can't have too many embellishments. The great thing about Bella Blvd products is that many of them are so versatile and can be mixed and matched with any line, a scrapbookers dream come true!
