I found this line to be so versatile. used this collection for a non-Thanksgiving, non-Fall page. On a beautiful (hot!) September day, my family went to the county fair. It was a great outing. I thought my son, age 3, would be most excited about the animals. And while he did love them, what he really had his eyes on - and his heart set on - were the prizes on the Midway.
I took this trio of photos, sized them to match the "love life" journaling card in the Thankful collection, and used them as the focal point of my layout.
Of course, this Bella Blvd' line is perfect for Fall themed layouts. I particularly liked the Thanksgiving theme that ran through this aptly named Thankful collection. It turned out to be just perfect for scrapbooking a collage of photos from our family gathering last year.
On this layout, I numbered each photo, then journaled directly on the patterned paper below the collage. To do so, I first tested the placement of the journaling on regular printer paper. Then, I cut a strip of patterned paper slightly larger than the journaling area, taped the patterned paper strip on top, and ran the paper through the printer again.
Here's a closeup of that cute turkey. It was part of the "Cute Cuts" sheet in the collection. The heart button is also Bella Blvd and was included in the kit.
Here's a photo of the kit I worked with, the Creative kit.
