Today I am up on the Bella Blvd. Blog with a process video featuring a patriotic page created with a combination of Bella Blvd. collections!
This was a really fun one to put together! I love working with a color scheme … grabbing elements from several collections to put together my own unique look for a project.
The grid background paper is the Dancing Jellies paper from the Secrets of the Sea Boy collection. I then used my Silhouette Cameo 3 machine to cut the stars and stripes for the top of the page using the Blueberry Stars Paper (Oh My Stars Collection) and the On the Farm Paper (red wood slat paper from the Barnyard collection).
The title is a combination of two packages of acrylic words (Home, Namaste and Be You, Be Brave) along with the Blueberry Wonky Alphabet Letter Stickers. So cute!
I love the circular die cut pieces that I added to the right of the title … don’t they remind you of fireworks?!
I layered several star die cuts on top of the Blueberry Paper stars on the left side of the page and then added a mixture of Milk White, Blueberry Mix, and McIntosh Mix Puffy Stars stickers to give the page a “sparkly” look and add texture and dimension.
Below the photos, I added two house die cuts along with a little cloud. The houses tie in with the “Home” of the Brave title at the top of the layout.

In honor of the sale, for my project this week I created a hybrid layout where I mixed together the Secrets of the Sea digital embellishments along with the physical products of the Secrets of the Sea Girl collection. You can see this page come together in the process video below.
What better way to kick off summer than with a page about the pool?!
I talk about this in the video, but the thing I loved most about using the digital products on this page was the ability to punch up the cute factor with the large mermaid art. These photos are just a few shots I snapped on my cell phone without too much thought, so they aren’t the greatest, but the mermaid really helps to dress things up!
I placed the journaling at the top of the page along with some of the Secrets of the Sea Designer Clips and puffy heart stickers in Ice Mix and Punch Mix.
The blue mist splattered here-and-there feels like splashes of water from the pool!
At the bottom of the page, I printed the SWIM embellishment really large and then cut out the letters to use as my title. Cute seaweed die cuts flank either side and make you feel like you are swimming along the bottom of the ocean floor along with the fish and mermaid!
Thanks for checking out my page today! If you haven’t given a hybrid layout a try in awhile, I recommend going for it! I loved having the flexibility of printing the images in any size that I wanted and will definitely be giving this a try again soon!
Bella Blvd. Secrets of the Sea Digital Embellishments
This week on the Bella Blvd. blog we are featuring projects with the darling Popsicles & Pandas collection!
I created a process video for my layout, which you can watch below or on the Bella Blvd. YouTube channel.
SWEET SUMMER TREAT
Every summer my family and I make a point to spend a summer evening at a local water park. We enjoy dinner on the lawn under the trees, swim, relax in the lazy river, and then grab an ice cream treat at the end. It’s summer at its BEST!
I wanted to capture the feeling of the blue sky and green grass on this page, and so I used that as inspiration when selecting the patterned papers. I added a pop of color at the top and bottom of the page with the colorful stripes of the Borders Paper.
How darling is that panda die cut?! He (or she? … she does have cute eyelashes and blush!) is enjoying her triple cone along with the rest of my family!
I used one of the acrylic words to begin my title, pairing it with the “summer” die cut and spelling out the word “treat” with the happy yellow letter stickers included on the Fundamentals Sticker sheet. I accented the title with a puffy ice cream cone sticker, and an epoxy cupcake sticker.
Bella Blvd. collections always make me smile! And this one is especially perfect for scrapping those summer memories.
Thanks for joining me today! Have a great week!
