Archie (loves) Willie | Bella Blvd

I am beyong excited that Bella Blvd has a new pet collection!!! Archie and Willie are not going to be scrapbooked a bit more ;-) 

These two little furry felines just love each other. Archie (the one on the right) always follows Willie around and lays next to her all the time. When Willie is sleeping and all cosy you can be sure Archie will be around the corner trying to find her to get some attention! I love the pop of red that I included in this layout. I feel it brings lots of interest to the title and the picture still stands out.

Happy Birthday | Jillibean Soup

Sometimes It Just feels good to make a mess!
I had so much fun playing with the Jillibean Soup Happy Hues Paints. I literally took a brush and went crazy on a piece of white 12x12 cardstock. After I was done, I cut a piece off measuring 4x4 and created this card.

Orange paint smeared all over my page and pink splats created with my flicking paint brush created this background. I added diecuts and some wood veneers and voila!

Supplies Used:
Jillibean Soup 

Happy Hues:  Outrageous Orange, Amiable Aqua, Precocious Pink, Ravishing Red
Patterned Paper: Summer Red Raspberry Soup/ Stick of Cinnamon
Pea Pods Die Cuts: Summer Red Raspberry Soup
Coordinating Stickers: Birthday Bisque
Wood Veneers: Saffron Yellow Pepper Soup

Other: Cardstock, Sewing Machine, Enamel Dot, Twin, Glossy Accent

Life Documented - April 2015 | Simple Stories

I am here to share a Life Documented spread featuring a variety of Simple Stories collections today. I used Say Cheese II, Life Documented Scrapbook and I AM Collections. 

I have the month of April in my spread today.  April was a quick month for me, I  was able to enjoy time with friends at a crop and some much needed time with my sister and her kids.

My spread is colorful this month. I used lots of colors to feature the pictures and to make it a fun spread. I love color and these colors in the collection are so bright and cheerful.

A fun thing to do in a pocket page is confetti! Lots of fun elements to create a great  " interactive" pocket! I included a few diecuts, some silhouette cut words and numbers, punched out confetti as well as wood veneers. It's fun to include these items in a pocket page spread! Have you ever created a confetti pocket? Don't forget to sew the top of the pocket so your items don't fall out ;-)

 Here are a few close ups  of my spread.

I hope you enjoyed my Life Documented post today and I hope you enjoy creating with your favorite Simple Stories Products!

Painted Mason Jar | Jillibean Soup

Ok, this wasn't an easy project.. or I did something wrong.
The paint wouldn't adhere to the glass, so I have about 3 coats of paint inside. I don't think I would recommend water in it! For a decorative piece it's perfect!!! I love this little mason jar and the paper straws in it is super cute!

I used the Amiable Aqua Happy Hue paint and the color is fabulous ;-) LOVE IT!
So i have this little mason jar sitting on my kitchen counter! The Weathers are gone!

Supplies Used:
Jillibean Soup 

Happy Hues: Amiable Aqua
Party Playground: Straws/ Rock Candy Blue Herringbone; Cupcake Toppers/ Multi Colored Star

Dance It Out | Jillibean Soup

It's Springtime! This time of year I always try to do something different.  Something fresh or something that makes me happy. You know what I mean? I have been playing around with the new Jillibean Soup Happy Hues paints and I created this card.

First I added some color using the yellow and orange paint - watered down and added with a waterbrush. I painted with a sponge the green on top of the mini placemat, and then added more paint splats by flicking my paint brush on my cardstock. It really was a fun card to do ;-) You should try!

Supplies Used:
Jillibean Soup 

Happy Hues: Ravishing Red, Outrageous Orange, Yummy Yellow, Amiable Aqua
Patterned Paper: Summer Red Raspberry Soup/ Frozen Red Raspberries
Pea Pods Die Cuts: Summer Red Raspberry Soup
Mini Placemats: Here's The Story
