I used white cardstock as the base of my layout, spritzing it with a bit of teal spray mist, stitching the edges and matting it with a couple of the patterned papers before adding my photos and the other elements.
Hi! My name is Jill Sprott, and I am excited and honored to be a guest designed at Bella Blvd this month!
I like to think that my life, like my scrapbook pages, is colorful. I hail from ‘Oahu, Hawai’i, where I live with my little but loud family, which includes multiple humans and several furchildren. I teach English at an all-girls’ school in Honolulu, where my creativity is challenged and fed constantly. When the weekend rolls around, I exchange one stack of papers for another, of the patterned variety. I have been scrapbooking for over a decade now. For me, it’s more than a hobby — it is all about learning to recognize the extraordinary in the ordinary. Through scrapbooking, I tell the stories that are uniquely mine to tell as well as the stories entrusted to me by others.
As the January guest designer, I will admit to being more than a little daunted by the task of kicking off a new year. I decided to embrace the challenge and focus on the year to come with a self-portrait layout, using a monochromatic approach and the Oh My Stars collection.
This year, I fought the urge to make any resolutions, since I’m pretty lousy at keeping them. I am, however, a believer in entering the new year with a fresh perspective, so I selected a word, rather than a resolution, for 2017: “notice.”Since the act of noticing is about being attentive not just to the obvious but also to the subtle details, the layout is a mix of nuanced and bold elements. I softened the background with white paint from the Illustrated Faith line, and then added an extra pop of color to the patterned paper, the tags, and the title letters.While one layout looks ahead, another layout looks back at one of the highlights of the past year. I pulled together elements from the Addison, Oh My Stars, and Illustrated Faith “You Are Loved” collections to help me to tell story of a transformative service project, in which students at my school assisted the residents of a long-term care facility.Once again, paint adds a color boost to the page. To lend some dimension to the letters in the title, I backed some of the alphabets with foam circles.The elements on this page reinforce the virtues of hope, faith, and charity that I witnessed in action through the project.The last of my three layouts combines a bunch of photos from past and present, to document a job I take seriously but that still keeps me laughing on most days, that of dog mother.
I had lots of fun composing the journaling, which includes a list of behaviors common to parents of dog-folk. After printing the journaling in strips, I added some playful stitching, extending it to the photos and the layers of the page.
It’s been a thrill to start off the year in the best of ways, with lots of color and energy, courtesy of Bella Blvd!

Hi! My name is Gina, and some of you might know me as myfrogprince on some forums. I am so honored to be your guest designer at Bella Blvd. for the month of October!
I started scrapbooking back in 1996 when supplies were limited. Back then it was mostly stickers, decorative scissors and colored cardstock. It has been so fun to watch this industry change and grow over the years and grow with it. I am passionate about scrapbooking and photography and I love sharing it with others. I have been fortunate enough to study photography and work with Canon as a Special Projects Representative to train store employees in digital photography. I currently enjoying being on a few design teams while I share my love for scrapbooking and photography with others.
I love the Addison collection so much! The bright and trendy colors and designs are just perfect for scrapping photos of my teenage daughter. The look of the Addison collection fits her personality so much! To create the large X's on my layout I simply used my paper trimmer to cut my papers into strips and then used a tiny attacher to staple them into X's. Easy peasy and oh so fun!

I'm a big fan of patterned papers, and I love using lots on my pages! For this layout I chose papers from both the Addison and Bright and Brave collection. I love how well the pieces in both collections go well together. I specifically wanted to include the bible journaling paper because my daughter is a child of God and I am so proud of where she is in her personal walk right now. To create my background I layered strips of patterned papers (at an angle) against a white cardstock background. I added some drops of pink spray mist and a few enamel hearts. I also used some paper pieces and a strip of washi to finish up my page.

Fall is my favorite season and I absolutely love Halloween and creating anything Halloween related.The Spooktacular collection is filled with lots of cute patterns that are perfect for documenting your spooky memories. To create my layout I started with a cut file from The Cut Shoppe (called Full Circle) and cut out my big design using the Bright And Brave Epistles paper. Then I backed my cut file with different papers from the Spooktacular pad. I added a few drops of black ink across my page and added my photo and title. I chose a black and white photo to really bring out the colors of the papers in the design. I added some super cute paper pieces, tabbies, stickers and enamel dots to complete my design.

I can't let Halloween pass without making a Halloween card. The papers in the Spooktacular paper pad are perfect for this because they are already sized to a smaller scale to fit well with cardmaking. On my card design my love for patterned papers and washi came together. I simply trimmed my papers and washi strips at an angle before adhering them down on my card front. I used my sewing machine to add a little bit of machine stitching to my design then used foam adhesive squares to make my paper pieces come to life. I added a small bell pepper enamel dot to finish off my card.

Do you ever have a story you want to tell from the past, so you take a current photo to represent it? That’s how this page started! Once I printed the photo, I saw the Swiss Cross shape on the controller, and realized I could repeat that shape across the page. You can punch squares out of a variety of Alex patterns, and trim them into strips with scissors to create the swiss crosses. Two triangular corners from the McIntosh Stars paper frame the page. I stitched through the shapes on the diagonal to add line and texture. Then, added computer journaling to a tag in a pocket behind the photo.

Love the Addison Collection so much! Sometimes the fresh designs of your supplies can inspire the whole concept for a page, as was the case here! The Addison Playlist Paper is perfect for any music lover. Have fun punching squares from this adorable line, and pile on some stickers, clips, washi stickers, and Bella Bows. Add a chipboard title and call it perf!

This page came together quickly, and the color scheme was taken directly from the photo. The heart shape in the latte art was repeated in the different size hearts punched and added to the hand stitched floss and yarn stripes. Kind of like those wall weavings all over Pinterest right now!

Thanks so much, Leigh for sharing your talents with us this month!
Hi everyone! My name is Tegan Skwiat and I am thrilled to be the August Guest Designer! I love all of the new Bella Blvd products and had a blast creating these projects to share today. I live in Northwest Indiana with my hubby of 15 years, Andy, and our Cairn Terrier named Pixie. About 17 years ago my little sister suggested we try this thing called “scrapbooking” that her friend’s mom did. Needless to say I have been head over heels in love with papercrafting ever since! I love the process of starting with a blank canvas and moving different patterned papers and embellishments around to see what I can create. When I am not crafting, I like to take the fur kid on walks or watch football.
"Love You", by Tegan Skwiat.
I love anything with a rainbow of colors on it, so I was excited to see that the Oh My Stars collection included the star patterned papers in so many colors. And, of course I used as many as I could! I started this layout by using my Silhouette Cameo to cut the heart pattern out of white cardstock. I then cut strips from the various star patterned papers and adhered them to the back of the layout using foam adhesive to add dimension. So easy, but I think it looks so cool!
Since the layout is so colorful, I used the black and white star patterned paper to anchor my photo. I love that the bright red bow really helps draw attention to my picture as well. I seriously can’t wait to make another layout with a rainbow pattern like this one!
"Lovely", by Tegan Skwiat.
There are so many things I love about the Addison collection, I don’t even know where to start. The jewel tones are amazing and the jewel shaped ephemera pieces are so fun! The colors and patterns are so hip and perfect for young ladies. And the blue and black buffalo check patterned paper is my favorite thing from this collection! The Ciao Chip pieces are great for using as titles. I easily made the cool “Lovely” title by painting it black so it would stand out against my background.
The enamel dots are perfect for adding little accents to layouts. I love the dimension and the texture that the Bella Bow adds. And the new Designer Clips are so much fun! Dare I say this is my new favorite layout?
"Beautiful Selfie", by Tegan Skwiat.
On this last layout, I really wanted the patterned papers from the Bright and Brave collection to make a dramatic statement. I think the black background helps me achieve this look. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the various sized stars from white cardstock and used coordinating embroidery floss to outline them. I used the Bright and Brave Designer Clips to create interest at the top of my page. I used the white Amorie Chipboard alphas for my title. And, I couldn’t help but dot my “I” with a little heart sticker!
I love the mix of florals and geometric prints in this collection. The mix of teal, black, greens, and hot pink is so fun. And while it is faith based, it still gives you lots of pieces that aren’t. As always, the enamel dots are the perfect little addition next to my journaling.
Thank you all for taking the time to look at my projects. And a huge thank you to Bella Blvd for giving me this amazing opportunity. Have a great day everyone!
Hello! I’m Kelly Noel, and I’m so excited to be here with Bella Blvd as their guest designer this month! I’ve been married to my husband, Tom, for 14 years and we have three boys. Jackson is almost 12, Brady is 9, and Sawyer (we call him the “bonus baby”!) is 3. I work as the Education Content Coordinator for Studio Calico and Big Picture Classes, and spend my spare time creating layouts and pocket pages with Studio Calico kits and for One Little Bird Designs. I’ve been scrapbooking for as long as I can remember, but really fell in love with it after my oldest was born in 2004. I found 2peas at that time, and the rest is history! When I’m not scrapbooking, you can almost always find me at the baseball field. I love watching my boys play ball, spending time with friends and family, shopping, decorating, and cooking for my family.
"Love You", by Kelly Noel.
Bella Blvd was generous to send me three of their boyish collections to work with and it was so much fun! This first layout uses exclusively the Cute Baby Boy collection. I’m smitten with the soft colors with the touch of orange and green. These colors matched so many of my photos, but I chose one of my favorite photos of my middle son and the baby.
I used a fun cloud cut file, so that I could use all of the fun patterns in the collection. It took quite awhile to cut all those little pieces, but it was worth it! A few die-cuts for the title and around my photo, and this layout was finished in no time!
"Zoo", by Kelly Noel.
As soon as I saw the Zoo Crew collection, I knew I wanted to scrap these two photos of my youngest at the zoo feeding the giraffe. I remembered that I had them, but had never scrapped them, so it was the perfect fit. The giraffe patterned paper was a must, and I paired it in strips with the text/polka dot paper.
I love the contrast between the two papers, and they served as a great backdrop for my photos. I added a cluster of embellishments on the left side of my page (how cute is that chipboard giraffe?!), and finished the page off with the “zoo” die-cut that serves as my title.
"Everyday Adventure", by Kelly Noel.
We don’t travel too often, but I love the versatility of the Let’s Go collection. I was able to pull out some papers and die-cuts that worked well for just everyday adventures. Our 3-year old is all about adventure. My Mom has been watching him for me a couple of days a week now that she’s retired, and they’ve been going on a lot of little adventures around town. He looks forward to his days with her and I’m so thankful that she is able to do that with him.
I created a fun banner at the top of the page just using strips of several of the patterned papers and cutting them with my scissors to create a banner shape. Layering them together created some interest at the top of the page. I popped up my photos using foam adhesive to make them stand out and grouped some die-cuts and washi tape along the left side to serve as my title.
Thank you so much to Bella Blvd for inviting me to be the guest designer this month! I had a lot of fun with these adorable collections!
Hello everyone! My name is Kim Watson and I’m honored to be guest designing here at Bella Blvd! I live in the beautiful city of Cape Town, South Africa with my family. We are blessed to be sourrounded by oceans, mountains and some of the most breathtaking senery in the world. Everyday I feel blessed that what started out as a hobby 10 years ago, is now my job. I love going to the ‘office’ each day where I get to work with color, designs & experiment with new concepts for scrapbooking product; I find this craft stimulating & fun.
Although I don’t get to scrapbook much as I used to these days, I do manage to create a few pages every week, which keeps me sane. I’ve been on many design teams over the years & love that not only have I had the opportunity to design & write for so many different brands, but have had the opportunity to meet & befriend some of the most amazing people from all over the world. I am so excited to be guest designing for Bella Blvd again, I will always be a fan of their colorful graphic style.
"Never Slow Down", by Kim Watson.
Having received mostly boy collections meant I had an opportinity to scrap some photos of my son I had been hording like this one. Those cute car illustrations from the Let’s Go collection really stood out to me as the perfect boy themed page accent. Aren’t they adorable?! Together with the cute speed limit card, they totally inspired the color palette & theme behind the page.
The little cluster in the top right corner comprises of a piece of the Let’s Go sticker strip, a few ephemera pieces, a hand cut cloud & a conversational title using the Homespun Alpha Stickers. Machine stitching is always a great way to attach things to your scrapbook page as well as adding fabulous interest.
I love how the punchy black & big title on the card acts as a gorgeous focal point drawing attention to the photo. Chipboard, Stickers & cute themed e[phemera bring this page together nicely.
"Love You Little Boy", by Kim Watson.
Isn’t this sweet soft collection just adorable? It was perfect to scrap these photos of little Cassidy giving her baby brother cuddles. In love the blue with hints of caramel, grey & yellow…I naturally reached for the cute cloud paper first. Actually it was this paper with the doodled style clouds that influenced my cut-out cloud shapes.
Slipped under the photos, the clouds cut-outs layered with cloud ephemera & chipboard, made the perfect base for the sweet title.
Layering tags, chipboard & stickers from the Cute Baby Boy collection really helped tell my story. Again the limited color palette & dominance of white, makes for lovely, soft page that makes one say …aaawww.
"Let's Go Explore", by Kim Watson.
Totally inspired by the chipboard & cardstock clouds (again LOL), I messed with mixed media & created a skyscape.
The Hip Kit Club stencil & some Shimmerzpaint products, teamed with hand cut paper clouds & a mixture of other ephemera had the little aeroplane flying through a bright painted sky.
A combination of Tiny Text & Homespun alpha stickers created amazing focal anchors within the page design.
I think what makes this page extra special is the subtle layering of colors, textures & materials. Bella Blvd is so good at co-ordinating many different items across all their collections, meaning you can always find exactly what you need to make your next papercraft project interesting & fun.
So thank you so very much to Bella Blv & their team for inviting me over guest. I really enjoyed working with these cute collections. I hope you have been inspired by my ideas. Have a wonderful crafty day further. Until next time.
We are so excited to introduce you to our talented March Guest Designer, Ashley Horton. Let's get to know a little more about Ashley and check out the projects she created to share with us!
Hi! My name is Ashley Horton and I am so excited to be a Guest Designer this month with Bella Blvd! I live in Southern Alabama with my husband, Tyler, and our three children Madison, Emma and Reese. I am currently a work at home mom and home school teacher (and at times cleaner upper…unless I decide to scrapbook instead!). I started scrapbooking in 2006 and have been madly in love with it ever since. Scrapbooking is really a part of my lifestyle, rather than just a hobby. I enjoy doing something crafty related every day, whether it’s working on layouts, designing sketches or cut files, or reading Blogs and searching through Pinterest and Instagram. I love the aspect of documenting my photos and being creative while I am at it, and being a part of the amazing scrapbook community.
“Hello Adorable U”, by Ashley Horton.
It was hard to decide where to start, with the cute collections I received from Bella Blvd. For my first layout, I chose the Sweet, Sweet Spring collection. I used the B side of the Easy Breezy patterned paper for my background, and created a fun design behind my photo with messy circle cut files. And the phrases from the Hello There Chipboard Words were perfect for creating a stand out title over the messy circles and my photo.
“Adventure Found”, by Ashley Horton.
The patterns and colors in The Zoo Crew collection are so fun! The Snake Skin patterned paper immediately caught my eye, and I knew I had to use it. I wanted the patterned paper as my background, but needed a way to tone it down, to allow my photo and embellishments to stand out. So I cut a background cut file from White cardstock and layered it over the Snake Skin patterned paper, to break it up a bit. And for this layout, I decided to add some color to the Chipboard Words that I used for the title. I chose a Yellow and Light Blue Gelato and colored over the words “Today” and “Adventure”. Then I just used the tip of my finger to spread the color over the chipboard.
“Beautiful Inside & Out”, by Ashley Horton.
I am so in love with the new She Blooms collection. I wanted to use all of it on just one layout!! After much deliberation, I decided to create a bold, contrasting look with Black & White and color. I chose the 3x4s patterned paper and used the Black & White stripes on the B side for my background. Then I cut a large title from three of the colored patterned papers, and added machine stitching to each letter. I fussy cut some of the pretty flowers from the She Blooms patterned paper, and layered them behind my photo, to help it stand out from the bold background paper.
“Isaiah 40:8”, by Ashley Horton.
Because I love the She Blooms collection so much, I just had to use it on one more project. It’s perfect for creating layouts or using it in your Journaling Bible or faith journals. I used the stickers and fussy cut flowers along with the verse: “The grass withers and the flowers fade, but the word of our God stands forever.” Isaiah 40:8 I love knowing that God’s Word is eternal and that it is constantly blooming in the hearts of new believers and those who are already believers, as He teaches us new things in His Word.
Thanks for joining me on the blog and thanks to Bella Blvd for having me guest design today!
We are so excited to introduce you to our talented February Guest Designer, Missy Whidden. Let's get to know a little more about Missy and check out the projects she created to share with us!
Hi, everyone! I’m Missy Whidden, and I live in sunny Florida, USA. I’ve been married to Marshall for almost 16 years, but we’ve been together for over 21. We have two beautiful little girls, Reese and Paige. When I’m not scrapbooking, I teach several fitness classes at a local gym. I love helping gym members stay healthy and watching them challenge themselves in workouts. While working out is my aggressive stress relief and therapy, scrapbooking is my quiet and calm therapy. I work on something scrapbook related every day, and I have grown so much over the last nine years. I started scrapbooking just before my first daughter was born. My favorite techniques are mixed media (watercolors, spray inks, gelatos), die cuts and stitching. I adore bright colors and fun patterns. I’m honored to serve on several design teams, and I truly love everything about this hobby. I’m so happy to be a guest here at Bella! Thank you for having me!
"Two Is Better Than One", by Missy Whidden.
I used the beautiful Valentina collection for my first layout. The reds and pinks are amazing, and I couldn’t resist scrapping a photo of me and my husband. I combined my two favorite techniques: mixed media and die cuts. I cut lots of circles with hearts from the See You Soon paper and layered them so they overlapped. On my background, I used white gesso to fade out some of the little black hearts and to give my paint a place to go. I used plastic packaging with spray inks to spread the color around and then splattered it around.
I love these fun sayings from the Treasures & Text sticker sheet. They are so much fun! I didn’t even feel like I needed to add another title to my page. These said it all!
These flamingos are so adorable! I fussy cut them out, and although their teensy legs were a challenge, I made it work. They are perfect for a page about love.
Here’s a close up of the circles and the machine stitching. Stitching is great way to add texture, detail and color to your projects.
"You", by Missy Whidden.
I used mostly the Cute Baby Boy collection for my next layout. As you can see, there are no boys on this page! Yep, it’s a very versatile collection, and I love the colors for a girl page. I hand cut a lot of hearts from various patterned papers and arranged them kind of messy on the page. I stitched through them all and ruffed up the edges so they’d be dimensional. I came in with some white gesso and smudged it around with my fingers all around the hearts and even on top of some of them. The spray inks do so much better on patterned paper when you have gesso down first. I used mostly blue since it was the primary color of the page. I love how the black & white photos really pop against those beautiful colors.
Some of these hearts are from the Paper Pieces pack and some of them are punched from patterned papers. I created a little heart cluster here and stitched through it all.
Here you can see the gesso and paint texture. I love how it curled the hearts up and gave them such great dimension! I just love these colors…especially the grey mixed in!
Here’s one more close-up. I used lots of tangled thread here for added texture and color. That “You” die cut was perfect for my title.
"Run & Jump", by Missy Whidden.
My final layout was created with the Sweet Sweet Spring collection. These bright colors are my favorite! I love the rainbow effect, so I couldn’t resist using lots of patterns and colors together. I used a fun chevron arrow die cut and backed a lot of the open spots with various patterned papers. I customized my background with clear gesso and spray inks again. I used plastic packaging and also my water brush. I wanted to create a little watercolor blob of several of the colors, and I love how it turned out. I added lots of pop dots to the die cut to create some depth.
These chipboard alphas are so fun, and I love that they’re large. They were perfect for my title. I used a few pieces of patterned papers to create the layers behind my photo. I also added a few stickers right on top of my photo. That’s a fun design element when you have some open space on your photo.
I loving how this die cut looks raised up! I also love this yellow color. It matches the color in the Bella papers perfectly!
Here’s another close-up of the die cut. These colors & patterns are perfect together. I had the perfect thread color to match, too!
One more extra close-up of the chipboard alphas at the top.
Thank you so much to everyone at Bella for inviting me and letting me create with these beautiful collection! I had a blast, and I hope you see something that inspires you!
We are so excited to introduce you to our talented December Guest Designer, Jill Sprott. Let's get to know a little more about Jill and check out the projects she created to share with us!
Hi! My name is Jill Sprott, and I’m excited and honored to be a guest designer this month at Bella Blvd!
I hail from Oahu, Hawai’i, where I live with my husband, daughter, two quirky dogs, and a cat who thinks she is the head of the household. By day, I am an English teacher, but when the weekend rolls around, I exchange one stack of papers for another, of the patterned variety. I have been scrapbooking for over a decade now, and I show no signs of falling out of love with it. For me, it’s more than a hobby — it is all about learning to recognize the extraordinary in the ordinary. Through scrapbooking, I tell the stories that are uniquely mine to tell as well as the stories entrusted to me by others.
"December 1975", by Jill Sprott.
As the December guest designer, I was in a very merry mood as I created the first of my projects, a memento of Christmas past, using the Christmas Cheer and Christmas Countdown lines.
I began by layering manila tags in two rows over a sheet of patterned paper from the Christmas Cheer collection, and used those tags as a foundation for more layers, including stickers, tags, and die-cuts.
A bright yellow tag from the Christmas Countdown Paper Pieces adds some contrast to the basic red-and-green holiday color scheme.
"My Dog", by Jill Sprott.
A similar color scheme shows up on my second project. This time, however, the focus isn’t on the holidays, but rather, on the antics of my silly pup, Linus. This layout demonstrates the versatility and compatibility of Bella Blvd’s lines, as it pulls together papers and accents from multiple collections, including Family Frenzy, Make It Merry, and Illustrated Faith.
In pursuit of a whimsical style appropriate to the hilarious subject of my page, I used a sheet of “Here We Grow” Family Frenzy as the foundation for the layout, and stitched around it multiple times using coordinating colors of thread.
Within the stitched frame, I added dimension to each of the pattern-backed photos as well as to the title and journaling strips by using adhesive dots. To unify the photos and ground the design, I placed them in a cluster atop a satin ribbon.
"At This School", by Jill Sprott.
My third layout incorporates the Illustrated Faith collection, ideal for helping me to document life as a teacher in a parochial school. I also worked in bits and pieces from other Bella Blvd lines here, like a die-cut card from the Christmas Countdown, which I flipped over and placed over a piece of stitched cardstock.
For the title, I mixed letters from the Family Frenzy and Make It Merry Treasures & Text sticker sheets. I took advantage of the fact that the letters in the Make It Merry sticker sheet are white, and I altered them using watercolor pencils and a paintbrush dipped in water.
Looking back at these projects, I am reminded of what I love most about working with Bella Blvd’s products — all of that fantastic COLOR and vibrancy! I have enjoyed every moment spent creating these pages, and I’m grateful to Bella Blvd for helping to make each page meaningful in its own way.
