“Family Love”, by Laura Vegas.
I love the bokeh pattern on the backside of the Borders patterned paper, as it makes for a great background paper. It subtly adds lots of color, but without being too overwhelming. I tucked a few coordinating feathers under the blue heart die cut from the Paper Pieces package and added additional chipboard, crochet, and sticker hearts alongside it.

“My Baby Brother”, by Stephanie Buice.
The Family Forever Collection was my favorite of the new collections that I got to play with. The colors are so me and so very Bella! I don't think I could do family layouts and not make one of me and one of my most favorite people ever, my baby brother Ryan. Yes, he towers over me and has for quite a while. And he's far from being a baby anymore, but to me that is always how I will feel about him. I adored playing with this collection!

“Family Love”, by Becki Adams.
I love the navy blue in the Family Forever collection. It makes photos pop and goes perfectly with the bright yellow and red in the collection. This layout documents a few of my favorite family photos.

"I Love Us" card, by Shellye McDaniel.
One of my favorite new additions are the Candid Cards ... they're perfect for card-makers! Here I have used one of the larger cards and trimmed it down just a bit to fit the card front. Just a few embellishments is all that you need to keep it clean-and-simple.

"Serve the Lord" card, by Shellye McDaniel.
To give this card dimension, I added the scalloped house sticker over the house motif found in the design. I mimicked photo corners by wrapping the edges with Designer Tape before adhering to the background paper.
