“My Happy Place”, by Nicole Nowosad.
I had a lot of fun cracking opening up the new mini collections! I feel in love with both the A and B sides of the Scattered Sprinkles line and used a good amount of it on my page. I love the fun and vibrant colors and patterns in the lines and love that they mix well with each other and other Bella Blvd lines too!

“I Love You The Mostest”, by Stephanie Buice.
My son loves taking pictures and will come up to me and ask to send Daddy a picture while he is at work, there was just something about this picture that screamed "scrap me", so I listened. I dove into the new collections head first and couldn't wait to cut into this piece of patterned paper from the Scattered Sprinkles collection. I adore black and white so naturally this was my immediate favorite, at first I had it as my full background but the decided to break it up a bit with half and half white cardstock. I used some ink to make a quick splash of color as my base then added some patterned papers and other embellishments layered under my picture. I topped my picture with a frame from the Max Paper Pieces pack and some stars from the different Treasures & Text sheets of the new collections. The "I Love You The Mostest" sticker was the perfect title and finishing touch.

“Hello” card, by Diana Fisher.
When I saw the Summer Squeeze collection, I just knew I was going to use the Pocket Full of Posies B-side with the yellow "hello" pattern. For this card, I fussy-cut one of the "hello" words from the paper and popped it up on the card with foam adhesive. I then used Treasures & Text words from to create a linear message down the side of the card. I just love how this turned out!

“Friend” card, by Diana Fisher.
The pink and black used throughout all three new collections is so fun to work with. This color combo reminds me of middle school and feels both retro and trendy all at the same time. I couldn't help myself and had to make a "friend" card in these colors.
