Layouts with Debbie Standard

Today we have some gorgeous layouts from Debbie Standard!

We had a beautiful day for my mother’s 87th birthday and afterwards while the girls were still dressed up we went around the corner from my house and had them pose in this beautiful field of blue bonnets (Texas is known for their  state flower)! My granddaughter was patient with me up to a point and then she spontaneously burst into some random poses – these were  my favorite!

1.  Sand the Jillibean Soup Impressions.
2.  Use blue from the Tim Holtz & Ranger  Distress collection and emboss it with a Spellbinder’s embossing folder.  It is of course too wide to run through the embossing machine so I cut my paper in two and embossed each sheet and then attached them together.
3. I matted my photos with white and then added pink behind my photo strip.  I punched the edges with a Martha Stewart punch and then sanded them before adhering.
4.   I cut my flower and my title from my Silhouette ran the title through my Xyron machine and attached it.  Totally loved how these colors came out and reflected everything in my photos.
5.  I printed my journaling on 110 lb Smooth White cardstock and then cut it and ran it through my Xyron machine.

We celebrated my mother’s 87th birthday recently and had her kids, some of her grand kids and great grand kids there. Even with just a partial group there were 16!.  She was thrilled!  When the restaurant realized who we were singing too they all joined in.  She was so cute, I had to document it!

We are here ALL WEEK LONG with Bella Blvd and couldn’t be more excited.  Our team has create some really gorgeous   projects showing off just how great Core’dinations Cardstock goes with the beautiful Bella products. From fabulous patterned papers …to alpha letters …to super fun designer tape…Bella Blvd has  products for every paper crafter.

ARE YOU HAVING FUN YET??!?!

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!  There have been giveaways almost every day between the both blogs so make sure you check out  EVERY day!

And guess what?!  We have ONE MORE Glitter Silk cardstock pack to giveaway so comment on this post to win.

Today Design Team Member Debbie Standard created some gorgeous layouts for you.

For this first layout Debbie created pairing up her Bella goodies with some Fancy Pants Core Impressions.  LOVE the different patterns that Debbie mixed here…

And..yep! You guessed it….Debbie did an album using Bella Blvd products and Core. That’s all you need for one fabulous album.  For this first layout, Debbie used a bit of the Jillibean Soup Core Impressions.

I have to say I think our Spotted Collection goes amazingly with Bella Blvd. AND it comes in 6×6 and 12×12!!!

Take a close look at the scallops going down the left-hand side of the layout. Debbie punched circles (you could easily cut them with a die-cut machine as well) embossed them and then lined them up to look like scallops!

Just add sanding and a monkey ;)

Gosh the Bella  Blvd chipboard shapes are the CUTEST!

And this Darice embossing folder with the clouds just awesome. You will love it…I know our Design Team has been using it 24/7 since they got their hands on it.

Cute layouts. That sister love one is so darn cute. What a great choice for a favorite the Tim Holtz Adirondack Cardstock. It would be a fun one to work with.


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

Today is all about Core’dinatons SPOTTED Collections.

This is one of our most versatile collections today. The Tillie spots are bigger and perfect for layouts and the Jillian spots are a bit smaller and closer together and are great for layouts and cardmakers, too. Just what every paper crafter needs in their day-to-day supplies.

First up we have Design Team Member Lydia Jackson with some Jillian AND Tillie cardstock on one layout and she used some patterned paper from our friends over at Jilliebean Soup.

And this is what we are talking about when we say this cardstock is versatile.

Check out this layout from Design Team Member Kim Jeffress…different color palette yet SAME GREAT cardstock and gorgeous,gorgeous layout.

And anyone have any guesses as to what patterned paper Kim used on that layout?

Yep, you guessed it. PINK PAISLEE. Why am I asking?

BECAUSE WE HAVE TWO GIVEAWAYS TODAY! Yes, you heard me right. TWO!

We have a Pink Paislee Core Impressions cardstock collection pack to giveaway today, too!

YIPPPPPEEEEEEEEEE!!!
