G’day and Hello, It is Kim Jeffress here waving madly from down under Australia and I am very excited to be back on the Bella Blvd blog as the Guest Designer this month. Let me share a little about myself. I am a wife to David and mum to two sons Addison and Larsen. They boys are my main scrapbooking inspiration. I love recording the good, the bad and the everyday moments of their lives. That’s what matters! I teach kindergarten during the day and scrap at night, kinda seems like a great life right! I get to be crafty all day long. Currently I design for Heidi Swapp and Jot magazine, it keeps me busy but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I love the Bella Blvd collections because my scrapbooks are full to the brim of bright colors and patterns, it’s my favorite way to scrap. Let me share with you three layouts I created this month using the fun Barnyard and Popsicles and Pandas collections.
"Howdy, Smile, Moo" layout by Kim Jeffress
I loved the bright spotty yellow design on the back of borders pattern paper in the Barnyard collection so I used that as the base of my layout. You can never go wrong with spots.
I adhered my two photos in the center of the layout and then used the Puffy stickers, Designer clips and Paper pieces plus a touch of the washi to create a border around my photos. I added the acrylic as my title and some simple strip journaling and my layout was complete.
"Today Goofy" layout by Kim Jeffress
For my second layout I combined some bold pattern papers to form the base of my layout. I used the Moo pattern paper as well as the Borders pattern paper from the Popsicles and Pandas collection. I love how striking the patterns are together.
I arranged my photos then added the acrylic word and letter stickers from the Fundementals sheet to form my title. I added die cuts and puffy stickers to add pops of color around my layout.
"Embrace" layout by Kim Jeffress
For my final layout I used the gorgeous Oh Summer pattern paper from the Popsicles and Pandas collection and laid over some white cardstock to form my base. I love the pretty floral border that is created with this technique.
I created a subtle design through the center of my layout by sprinkling my photos and embellishments in a soft vertical line using the die cuts, some popped up with pop dots and the acrylic words amd puffy hearts.
