So sit back, relax, and get ready to be inspired. Our Design Teams have worked hard for you!  AND we would LOVE it {and I know they would, too} if you could head over to their Facebook page and give them a great big “HI!” from us and the Bella Blvd blog is looking fabulous, too! Head over there and check out all the gorgeous projects their team has been cooking up this week. You won’t be disappointed. AND rumor has it that they are doing a paper and sticker giveaway today!

LOVE the Bella Blvd stickers. They make great accents to any papercrafting project…check out how our team used them below!

And don’t forget to check out yesterday’s Core’dinations post for a chance to win some Glitter Silk Cardstock! Remember..to win the Bella Blvd giveaway you must comment over on their blog here.

So…let’s get started!

First up we have some layouts and cards from Design Team Member Kim Jefress.

Love this idea that Kim does…she embosses, sands, and  then splatters some paint on it.

Kim ROCKED the Darice embossing folders. We just love them..on this layout she used the Gears folder and just love all the amazing little details Kim does on her layout including the Bella Blvd photo corner just turned on an angle a bit and how she repeats that shape in the orange Core Essentials.

And remember that Glitter Silk giveaway from yesterday?  Kim uses it beautifully on this card…the white might be my FAVE!

And..we have a layout from Design Team Member Char Dobson. Char rocks her Cricut and loving the waves on this layout as a background. Char did loads of sanding here and distressed the orange cardstock for some added texture. Love all those colors against the brown.

one. Like the paper too.

So….ready for some inspiration and give-a-ways????

Today is all about Tim Holtz Adirondack Cardstock!

Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira worked up some amazing layouts for us today.

And how fun is this?  Melissa added a few of her favorite things to this layout, too! If you are familiar with Melissa’s work you will see one of these techniques on almost every layout of hers.

1. ) Sand the area  where want to journal (in this case, using the date stamp) so it “pops” off the page.

2.) Loosely and unevenly sanding around the edges of the page to create a distressed/weathered border.

3.) Grey!!! We love grey! And Melissa is obsessed with it.

And Melissa created some double page layouts for us, too!

The great thing about Tim Holtz Adirondack collection is that you don’t have to do grunge and  major distressing.  It is full of bright colors that are perfect for any project!!!
