New Bella Blvd. Release Projects

Hey Hey, it's Friday!

Earlier this week I mentioned that the new 'Winter Wonder' and 'Spring Flings and Easter Things' mid-releases by Bella Blvd. started shipping on Monday. Yippee! They might be at your favorite store by now! Guess what? I saw them at Two Peas in a Bucket! Just click on the collection names above to find them! I also mentioned that I would be back today with a couple cards made with these fantastic new lines...


Since spring is my favorite season, I'll show you my 'Spring Flings and Easter Things' card first! Mother's Day is just one of the special occasions that occurs during spring and a great time to send handmade cards!


When a collection such as this has a lot of beautiful coordinating papers and colors, I like to create a design that uses several of them. I also enjoy finding ways to use products in a different ways. The yellow check paper is actually a conversation bubble sticker that I turned upside down, using it as another strip of patterned paper.



Here's the card I create with the 'Winter Wonder' collection.


 I love the way stitching can jazz up a project! I thought it would be fun to stitch around the phrase letters and heart. I used an awl to pierce the holes first and then added the stitching by hand with a regular needle and thread.

So, what do you think of these new lines? Gotta have 'em, huh? :) In know the feeling! ;)



So what are your plans for Halloween weekend?  We will be laying low since the weather is going to be ugly. I'm so happy we didn't wait until this weekend to visit the patch! We'll carve our pumpkins, bake seeds and maybe some pumpkin cookies or cupcakes and I'll get a little crafty...just got my new Papertrey Ink goodies! :)

Have a good one and enjoy!
