Sunny Day Ahead | Gloria Parra | Lake Life + Bella Besties

Hello sweet Bella Blvd friends! Gloria Parra here today with a super fun layout. We were challenged this week to use our Bella Besties and the “Lake Life” collection to create a St. Patricks inspired layout, and OH how I loved the end result!


I started my layout with the green Lake Life polka dot patterned paper as my base, leaving a border all around. I then cut my white cardstock at 11,5 x 11,5 inches and adhered it on top. 


With the help of my trusty Bella Besties I created my super colorful rainbow, cutting each color of the rainbow with Bella Besties paper as well as some monochromatic Lake Life patterned papers. I die cut some clouds  in different sizes and different shades of blue and placed them on 3 corners, creating a visual triangle on my layout.


My idea for this page was to have a pot of spring flowers (instead of gold) at the end of my rainbow. To create my pot I used a black Bella Bestie pattered paper and the Sunny Day chipboard sticker from the Lake Life collection for my title. The red “ahead” subtitle comes from the fantastic Letter Scramble stickers. 


All the gorgeous flowers bursting from my pot come from the Lake Life ephemera packs and the Bella Pops in this incredible collection. The little turtle and frog at the bottom of my pot are also some Bella Pops from the this collection.


I printed my photos on two 2 1/4 x 6 inches photo strips and use a piece of the black patterned paper to create a frame for them, bringing the black to the left side of my layout as well. 


I then created little embellishment clusters  and  scenes on my clouds, adding little butterflies all around, which help lead the eyer through the layout. I also added some enamel dots to mark the trace of the butterflies…love how that looks!


Finally, I decided to use up all my enamel dots by placing a bunch of them on each color of my rainbow. I love the subtle shine and interest that this adds to my page! For my story I printed some journaling strips and placed them under my photo strips. 


What a fun page to create friends, you would never guess this layout was made with a lake them collection right? Hope you feel inspired to grab your bella collections and make them work for your next themed layout. Have a great day friends!
