Bella Fun...

I stayed in all weekend and enjoyed every minute of it. I cleaned the house, did so many loads of laundry that there was not one dirty piece of clothing in the house! I cleaned up my stamp table and then decided to mess it all up by playing with some new stamps. :) There are Swarovski crystals for the headlights and her scarf is blowin' in the wind!!! Isn't she adorable?!?!?


I love getting my monthly Bella Box!! The best part about the Paper Pretties boxes are that they come pre-cut and ready to assemble and there are photos of various sample cards with each month's kit available online in the Members section, so you can view them anytime! So my brain doesn't feel fried just trying to come up with a card layout...it's already done for me! Go here to check out the available boxes http://www.paperpretties.net/


Once I get one or two of those made, I tend to break out of my box and switch it up a bit. Add a punch here or there, change the layout, remove an item....

I used my Prisma Pencils & Gamsol for coloring....added a bit of Doodle (can't get enough of that with the Bellas!!!) and just simplified it a bit so I could give it to anyone for their birthday....guy, girl, teenager, etc. I got a total of 9 cards of out my card box supplies, even though they include enough goodies for 6 you can actually stretch the supplies to get quite a few more. :) There are a few different boxes available and various stamp companies you can choose from, PLUS you get a discount on everything in the store when you're a subscriber! I just ordered some new MFT stamps from there and can't wait to get my hands on them!!!

There is some big news on the way so keep checking back during the week!!!
