We are so excited to introduce you to our talented November Guest Designer, Angie Gutshall! Let's get to know a little more about Angie and check out the projects she created to share with us!
Hi, My name is Angie Gutshall and I'm a stay at home mom for 5 children ages 9 to 1. I'm married to my high school sweetheart, Brian. We live in the country in the central part of Pennsylvania. Scrapbooking for me is capturing our everyday moments on paper so my kiddos will have something to treasure when they get older. I started scrapbooking when my oldest was born, 9 years ago—I took one look at her adorable face and knew I was in trouble! Photography is a passion of mine: In my family it's become a joke that if I don't have my camera something is wrong!
I’m so excited to be guesting this month for Bella Blvd! When I got my box of goodies I was in my glory looking at all the amazing colors of papers and fun embellishments. Fall is my favorite time of year so I was thrilled to get “Hello Autumn” to play with! And of course since I have lots of little ones, “Tiny Tots” was a perfect collection for me to use on all those “cute” pictures.
"5 Blessings", by Angie Gutshall.
Ok so my first project I created was “5 Blessings”. The background paper I used couldn’t be more perfect for this picture. I really like neutral color papers for my background. Then I layered lots of the pretty fall papers behind the picture. I really love those cute leaf chipboard pieces. Aren’t those colors gorgeous?!

My next project I created using the “Hello Autumn” is a framed picture. I LOVE making my own decorations for the different seasons. To create this project, I used a frame for really cheap and decorated right on top of the glass. So simple and so pretty and colorful!
"Our Little Man", by Angie Gutshall.
Now on to my layouts using the Tiny Tots collection. Oh my, I just love those cute little animals and the colors in this line are so vibrant. This layout is my little man who is honestly more of handful than all four of my others ever were. Lol. We love him to pieces, but he is so ornery. You will notice I love to layer my papers. I really love that paper with all the words on it.
"Little Lady", by Angie Gutshall.
This layout just came together! I started with the frame and worked down from there. Lots of layers and little accents are my style! This little girl is so creative, she is just like her mom. Here are some close ups for you to see the details. I really love the “playful” tab, it’s perfect for this layout.
Thanks so much for stopping by to see my work! I had so much playing with the new Bella Blvd lines and I hope I have inspired you to go grab some Bella Blvd to add to your collections too!
