Hi everyone! My name is Tegan Skwiat and I am so excited to be the guest designer for this month!
I live in northwest Indiana with my husband and one fur kid. I’ve loved stickers for as long as I can remember. I had a cherished sticker album when I was a little girl. I was so proud of my sticker collection that included holographic stickers, puffy stickers, and even scratch and sniff stickers! It’s no wonder I love scrapbooking now! When I am not papercrafting, I love to walk the dog, catch up on funny movies, and watch football with hubby. I am also a big Disney fan. I don’t have any kids of my own, but I love going to the Disney parks with my little niece.
My first layout includes a mixture of the Oh My Stars collection, the Popsicles and Pandas collection, and the Delight in His Day collection. Bella Blvd makes mixing their collections on a layout so easy! I started by cutting 2” x 4” squares of my favorite patterned papers and layering them to make colorful background.
I then embellished my background with Delight in His Day stickers, paper pieces, and designer clip and Oh My Stars tabbies. I added a Popsicles and Pandas puffy sticker on the photo of Cinderella’s castle. I just love the happy feeling that all of these colors give this layout!
My favorite thing about this layout has to be the title though! I used the ‘Happy’ Delight in His Day paper piece for the first part of my title. I finished it off with some yellow Delight in His Day alphabet stickers. Rotating a couple of the letters adds to the fun feel of the page. A couple enamel dots adds even more whimsy!
My second layout also has a mixture of the Delight in His Day, Popsicles and Pandas, and Oh My Stars collections. As soon as I saw the Delight in His Day Topnotch patterned paper, I knew I wanted to fussy cut out some of my favorite pennants. I then layered these pennants to make a fun background.
Isn’t the elephant balancing on the pennant just the cutest? I fussy cut him from the Delight in His Day Clear Cuts Pad. A few Bella Blvd enamel star shapes add a little bit of fun to the page. Seriously, a girl can never have too many enamel bits!
The title is my favorite part of this layout too! I used some Bella Blvd Enamel Dots in Punch to add ears to the yellow alphas from the Delight in His Day sticker sheet. I honestly can’t get over how cute this title is!
My last layout is all about Disney as well. I used the Oh My Stars collection to pick out patterned papers that matched my photos exactly. I wanted to add a little bit more color, so I added the teal in also.
I used my Silhouette Cameo to first cut out the circles and numbers. I love that the Oh My Stars collection includes so many different single colored patterned papers. This made matching the patterned papers to my photos so easy. I embellished the page with pieces to match from the Delight in His Day and Popsicles and Pandas collections. The teal scalloped border sticker from the Delight in His Day collection makes a great accent for my second photo.
The Oh My Stars papers are also great for titles that pack a big punch! I used my Cameo and the Brush Script font to make this bold title. I finished off the page with some fun enamel shapes!
A huge thanks to Bella Blvd for having me as the guest designer this month. I had so much fun working with these collections!
