We are so excited to introduce you to our 2016-2017 Creative Team! All this week, we will be getting to know each designer, as well as sharing their first projects with you so that you can get to know their style. We just know you're going to love our new designers just as much as we do!
Hello! My name is Gail Lindner and I'm so excited to be bringing you lots of Bella Blvd inspiration over the coming year! I live in sunny Brisbane, Australia and have done all my life! I love it here! I have a wonderful husband and three children - Amelia just turned 8, Noah is almost 5 and Oliver has just turned 2. I am lucky enough to have the opportunity to be a stay-at-home-mum. I spend my days changing nappies, making sandwiches, doing school and kindergarten drop offs and pick-ups and trying to stay on top of the never-ending washing, feeding and tidying that comes with three kids! I have always been a creative person and have been scrapbooking now for 17 years and I can't imagine my life without it! I'm inspired by my photos and the stories I want to tell. You will rarely find a layout from me without meaningful journaling. It's just one of the ways I express my love for my family! I love the idea of my kids reading about my thoughts and experiences through my scrapbooking. I like adding in layers and embellishment clusters to my layouts as well as bright pops of color, incorporating my favorite color, aqua, whenever I can!

Hi everyone! I’m Laurie Schmidlin and I’m so excited and honored to joining the Bella Blvd Creative Team for another term! I live on a cattle ranch in Montana with my husband of 21 years. Together we have five amazing children, (one girl and four boys) that keep us very busy, as well as a myriad of loved pets and animals! During the long winter months, when I’m not helping out on the ranch or in my studio, you can find me with my nose in a book or trying out a new recipe. During the gorgeous, but way too short summer, I am almost always outside. We are fortunate to live at the base of the Rocky Mountains, so we are often out hiking or horseback riding on them. I first discovered paper crafting 20 years ago and have been hooked ever since! Even though I enjoy creating a variety of things with paper, card making is definitely my favorite! I absolutely love to create cards and gifts (aka handmade kindness) to give away to friends and family! I am so grateful to Bella Blvd for having me again this year, and can’t wait to share my Bella creations with all of you!
