Pink Paislee - Create with Bella Rouge

Hey everyone, I'm here with you today sharing a new layout in I created for Pink Paislee.  For todays projects I decided to delve back into my Bella Rouge collection and document my love of scrapbooking. This is a topic I haven't created a layout on for some time, so I thought now was a great opportunity.

 The photo on my layout was a pic that I snapped using a timer app on my phone. I love how easy our phones make taking and editing photos now. I prepared the base prior to starting the page with machine stitching in a large circle.

 To begin with I surrounded myself with all the gorgeous goodies in the collection; the papers, the embellishments, die cuts etc. Having all embellishments in view definitely helps my creative process.

 I fussy cut those flowers from one of the papers in the collection. It was one of those papers that was screaming to this non-ruffy cutter to fussy cut! Yeah, you know the ones! I then made an embellishment cluster containing a small 4" doily from my stash, a tag and labels from the ephemera, some chipboard and a couple of the gorgeous silver glitter puffy stickers. So much goodness layered in that one cluster.

 I knew I definitely wanted to document on this page, so I used my typewriter to add my thoughts and added it to the page in strips.

 I also created a cluster on the top left of the page. Again, a combination of the fussy cut flowers and embellishments in the collection.

I die cut the title 'create' using my silhouette machine and papers from the 6x6 paper pad. The Sticky Thumb foam dots from American Crafts were the perfect depth to help the title pop off the page.

I hope this layout has shown you how this older collection Bella Rouge is still just as beautiful to play with as it was when it was released.

I have a process video for this layout too
