So Not FUN - Bella Blvd

I have worked with all of the new Bella Blvd collections, except the Halloween Magic line.  Since we don't celebrate Halloween I didn't have much for the collection, BUT... 

I believe as a Design Team member of Bella Blvd it is my job to showcase each item created as best as possible, without compromising my beliefs.

So, I set off on the challenge of using this newest collection to highlight my pictures...


My son decided to ride Big Thunder Mountain this past month.  I have no clue why he did it as he isn't a big fan of rides anyway (course I'm not either so...).  Either way, he got on, I snapped pictures of the train he was on in hopes of seeing him (I did get him in all the pictures), and he cried.  He didn't lose his lunch, but he was sure close when I grabbed him at the end!

Here are some details...



So what do you think?  Did I accomplish my goal of showcasing Halloween Magic in a non-Halloween way? 

You can see the Pinterest image that we were using for inspiration on the Bella Blvd blog.

Merry - Simple Stories

How about some cuteness?  
This is one of the few 8.5x11 layouts I have done.  I chose to do this size as I really didn't have a story or any other pictures, just this one picture that takes center stage as our son does.


I used mainly Simple Stories, but my older stash with a few newer pieces.  I love how the products mix so well.

Lean On Me - Cocoa Daisy with Crate Paper

I played along with the designer challenge at Cocoa Daisy and created this for the challenge using the Sept and Oct Cocoa Daisy kits full of Crate Paper goodies.




Well you discovered my secret, I can't ride a bike.  I grew up in a county area with no sidewalks and such and really didn't have the time either to learn.  So my hubby is helping me learn,  By the pictures I think I've got a way to go, but I am proud to be trying.

Anna Griffin - Holiday Card Kit

So you all know by now I am not much of a card maker, but...  I received the Holiday Card Kit to work with for Anna Griffin and I loved making these cards!  Everything was in the box that I needed, no thinking, no figuring how to cut my 12x12 product down to fit well on a card.  I even like making cards (or at least under these circumstances)!

More Anna Grifin work for HSN - Tags

I'm back today sharing an assignment I worked on for Anna Griffin.  The assignment this time was to use tags.  I can't find a link on HSN, but there is one on QVC-UK for this product.  Again, the photos are stock photos.

Here I used the tags as a border.




Here I used the tags to build a background on my page.





And a few cards using the tags




And a tag set dressed up a little bit.


Thanks for all of your comments about this opportunity, it is fun to stretch myself and use products I don't normally come in contact with.  I'm actually finding that I am enjoying using the AG products on everyday projects too :)
