We are so excited to introduce you to our talented September Guest Designer, Loredana Bucaria. Let's get to know a little more about Loredana and check out the projects she created to share with us!
Hey there, it's Loredana Bucaria here with you all the way from Italy! I'm so happy to be here as guest designer today for this amazing company! I had the luck to meet Stephanie in person and I have immediately loved her. Why? Because I love persons that have a real pure soul! She is as you see here exactly! Scrapbooking has made me a lot of gifts meeting such beautiful persons from all over the world and I’ll infinitely thankful for this!
I could write and write and write so let’s talk about these new wonderful collections and how much they have inspired me to create. The products of Bella Boulevard are colorful. They are like some cartoons and you could think that you need to have a fanciful style to use them and instead is exactly the opposite. These products have perfectly matched with my style that is not always so full of colors like crazy. I think my style is more soft, more clear and these products were just perfect to add colors and shine to my creations.
I have been so inspired that the ideas come together shortly. You can play with these products using brushes, using watercolors or black and white photos or just playing with different shapes of die cuts.
"Pure Love", by Loredana Bucaria.
For the page “ Pure Love” I wanted to use just black and white photos and the amazing Just Add Color collection that was perfect. I have added some little phrase stickers and embellishements and the page comes up immediately. In this page there is my heart, I look back at these pictures and I feel so happy and so blessed to have found the time to take these selfies and to have made this page about.
"Love, Memories & Fun", by Loredana Bucaria.
Bella Boulevard products have allowed me to start a travel into my feeling and my latest “right now” moments. For the page “Love, Memories and Fun” I have again used a black & white picture and the Just Add Color papers. Specifically that paper with words is beautiful! I had the idea of coloring some words with a pencil, words that can be a title for my page. Some ink drops mixed with the enamel dots were the perfect match.
"Family", by Loredana Bucaria.
And then we arrive at the page “Family” that has my heart! Full of color as my family is! I wanted to use many papers of the Family Frenzy collection together to stickers and embellishments. The felt bow is simply gorgeous I couldn’t use it! Crazy for it! I have used a cut file with my cameo and just feel it with many different cloves of patterned papers and not only. In one of the clovers I have sticked the wonderful phrase about family that you can find in the die cuts from Family Frenzy collection.
Bible Journaling, by Loredana Bucaria.
And at last but not the least my Journaling Bible. A new adventure to me, a new beginning that means a lot to me! It means a new approach to God,. From my father’s death the relationship with the Lord was so hard to me, there are a lot of things that I’ll never understand or know but there is something in me that says “Go to the church, stay with HIM”, follow HIM… “ I don’t know what but I think that He is trying to talk with me again. This makes me feel scared sometimes, I have fear that something horrible can happen again in my life but I want to LIVE and live in HIS word as well. It’s a long way I know but I think that the creatuve mood will help me for sure! And how to start a new adventure if not with a colorful mood? The Whatever Is Lovely collection and the Illustrated Faith products are really perfect with transparencies, little words of wisdom, little phrases to add to your journaling and notes on your Bible! I love them madly.
Thanks for joining me on the blog and thanks to Bella Blvd for having me guest design today!
