Hello Precious | Bella Blvd Island Escape | Tarrah McLean

Hi Sassy Scrappers!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you and today I am sharing a new layout created using the gorgeous Island Escape collection by Bella Blvd

For this layout, I actually started out with the super cute borders paper from the Bella Blvd Molly collection as I received that paper in my kit along with the Island Escape collection this time too! I decided on a banner/pennant layout and took my large banner punch and punched out a few of them to place horizontally across the page!

I just had to fussy cut one of the adorable foxes also from the borders paper and added it beside my beautiful photo. The photo is of my 2 gorgeous nieces with my Mum (their Grandma that they call Marnee) when my Mum was visiting them recently. Oh how they love their Marnee!

I love that strip that says 'Beauty Might Bring Happiness But Happiness Always Brings Beauty' from the Borders paper from the Molly collection and wanted to include that above the banners along with the blue and white distressed strip from the Island Escape Borders paper also.

The Elle's Studio wood veneer from the Cienna collection were perfect to add to the layout as they say things like Precious and I Love You...all things that go with this gorgeous photo!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Happy creating!

Tarrah

Splash | Bella Blvd Island Escape | Tarrah McLean

Hi Sassy Scrappers!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you to share a new layout created using the gorgeous Bella Blvd Island Escape collection in the Sassy store now!

I absolutely love this photo of my niece on a flamingo floatie from last year! It is a perfect photo to use for this collection! I started out by finding a flamingo cut file and cut it out from the pink paper from the Island Escape collection!

I also cut a title to suit from the purply/blue waves paper. Once I had placed the cut files where I wanted them, I placed my photo and tucked one of the floral ephemera pieces under the right hand side of my photo! 

Embellishing was easy after I had my title and photos down. I added a couple of wood veneer that I got in the Sassy store plus I also added 2 flairs, some enamel dots and phrase stickers from my stash too! 

Make sure to check out the Sassy Scrappers store and get the Island Escape collection before it sells out! I have noticed that some of the goodies are already sold out so be quick!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Sea | Bella Blvd Island Escape | Tarrah McLean

Hi Sassy Scrappers!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you and today I have a new layout to share using the gorgeous Bella Blvd Island Escape collection!

I have had this picture of my boys from this past Summer printed for a while now! This photo was the inspiration for this layout! I knew I wanted to include some boating/nautical elements on this page today!

I started off by finding a ship's wheel cut file and cut it out from the dark blue paper in the Island Escape collection. I used foam tape to pop it up off the page. I also cut some strips from the 'Borders' paper in the Island Escape collection to add to the left side of the layout! I like the pop of pink and the addition the floral also brings.

That sticker that says 'Summer Buds' was perfect for this page too! Since they are brothers and good friends it goes so well! I added some ephemera and some of the chipboard stickers to embellish and I also added a wooden ships wheel from my stash to finish my page! 

I really liked that Sea title on the chipboard sticker sheet so that became my page title, I added another part of a border strip below this also!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Check out the Sassy store for amazing products you absolutely need!!

Pocket Pages | Pinkfresh Studio | Let Your Heart Decide | Agnus Kasprzak

Hi again :) I'm back with the remainder of my February pages using more of the gorgeous 'Let Your Heart Decide' collection from Pinkfresh Studio.


This month seemed to include a lot more vertical photos and just like I did with the earlier pages from this month, I used washi tape to join the 3x4" pics and cards to slide into the 6x4" pockets while mirroring the horizontal pics inside the Design A pockets.


I used sentiments from the larger 12x12" Thought cardstock with one of the die-cuts from the ephemera pack to create a simple filler card.


Using gold foiled vellum over the subtle pattern in the backing sheet from one of the sticker packs to create a filler background for this card.  


I tried to include more detail on each photo this month using a mix of stickers and journal strips to help tell my stories. 


Repeating the mirroring technique with my horizontal photos for the other side of the page - I was also mindful of alternating photos and cards to create a more balanced feel across the page.

And while I again mixed both large and small puffy alphas across both pages, I also incorporated some of the tiny alphas from the sticker pack to add help add more variety to each page.


 I also added one of the interactive pockets I created for my previous post to hold some more personal photos and stories.
