We are super excited to be teaming up with Kerri Bradford Studio for the week! So many of us own digital die cut machines, and if you happen to own a Silhouette, you've most likely heard of Kerri Bradford. She has been creating shapes to use with the Silhouette (they can be used with other die cut machines as well) for many years now, and has a fabulous collection of kits to choose from in her online store. A handful of our designers are teaming up with Kerri's designers, and combining Bella Blvd's collections and embellishments with Kerri's digital shapes. Check out what our designers have whipped up for you today!
“All You Need Is Love”, by Kristine Davidson.
I am sharing a layout with the Valentina Collection today. When I first saw this collection i thought of fun loving stories. I first started with the background and really wanted some black highlights on this page. I selected the Background Basic file and this shape was perfect. I was able to use the See You Soon patterned paper with different hues and of course a little sewing to add more texture. I added the title, from the Seasonably Said kit, in black and added fun stickers to add details. I love the picture of my niece and I and it is a reminder that All We Need Is Love!

“Currently 7”, by Heather Leopard.
I love using large words and shapes to make a bold statement on my layouts so when I saw the Grammar School Adverbs kit by Kerri Bradford, I added that baby immediately into the cart. My youngest daughter just celebrated her 7th birthday a little over a week ago and I knew that I HAD to create a layout about what she's into at age 7. I paired the word "currently" with "October" from the On the Calendar kit and then made a super-sized "7" to tie it all together. I cut the 7 out of the background paper and then added the black polka dot transparency to the back and stitched it to the page. Then I cut the other words out of pattern paper and added it to the top of the page. I added the photo in the middle-ish right section and embellished with stickers and enamel. I plan to write the things she's into around the border of the 7.

“#selfie”, by Heather Leopard.
You know sometimes when the stars and moon align and everything just comes together? Yeah, that happened with this layout. My daughter recently joined Instagram (with a private account) so she's been snapping selfies here, there and everywhere. I'm particularly fond of this one she took on "nerd" day at school. The Urban Dictionary kit from Kerri Bradford made me squeal in delight when I saw it. And then I pulled out the Bella Blvd Star Family Frenzy and Star Student collections. These were the perfect pairing...have you seen the adorable pattern paper with "selfie" all over it? I used that paper as the background and then added some paint over the top to tone it down in places. I took a screen capture of my daughter's post to use as the photo. It's one of my busier layouts but I just love how it came together.
