Bella BLVD | Pinterest Inspiration...

Hello Friends! Today I wanted to share my layout created for Bella Blvd using an image from Pinterest as inspiration.  Currently I've been loving powerful and meaningful (to me) quotes. Typography is a design element that I also love to play with. Here's my inspiration...

My finished layout might not be anything like what you imagine I'd pull from the image, but these words were my starting point.

products used: cs - American Crafts; pp - Bella BLVD | Oh My Stars, Molly; alphas - IF Homespun, Tiny Text; other - enamel hearts, designer clips, ciao chip, tabbies, Treasures&Text stickers, Fundamentals stickers; tools - machine stitching, paper piecer, embroidery floss.

Head on over to the Bella blog for more details. Thanks for visiting..x

JOT Magazine | February Mood Board!

We all love a good mood board, am I right? Well look no further than this gorgeous one, created by the lovely Amanda Hall over at Jot Magazine.

Swoon! It is the month of love and romance, so why not create a stunning project using this colour palette! *grin*

I've been tempted and followed through with creating a pink page about my 14 year old son. okay... So the palette chosen here is heavily dominated by the touches of black, LOL, but he claims to be "man enough" to handle pink, so I went with the challenge! *grin*

products used: cs - American Crafts; pp - Bella Blvd, Pebbles Inc, Studio Calico; alpha - Bella BLVD fundamental stickers; other - HS thankyou die, Bella BLVD: paper pieces & enamel hearts, Pretty Little Studio card, Girl's Paperie word phrase stickers, enamel dots, Tim Holtz paper clip, staples, toothpick, twine; tools - machine stitching.
