Bella Calendar

I have been so inspired by the calendars I have seen on the bellaholics anonymous group that I decided to give one a try. This is the monthly calendar from CTMH. I figure this way I can scrapbook at least one page a month. Of course that does not help me get caught up on the last year's worth of pictures. This is my January page. I have February done except for the pictures and the March page started. I will post them as I finish them.

Moving Card

My parents are finally moving back home after 15 years of living in Virginia, so I made them a card to welcome them back to the neighborhood. The paper and boxes stamp are CTMH and center image is Sellabella from Stamping Bella.

From Me To You

I have had the From Me To You card kit for months and have barely done anything with it. Today is a very cold and rainy day in NJ so I decided to play with this kit then I could use the box it came with to hold cards. These are three of the bella cards I did with the kit. Colors are Hollyhock, Sunflower, Garden Green, and Baby Pink. I will post the other cards later.

Valentine Card

I made this card for a Valentine Card Swap I am doing for the bellaholicsanonymous group. This is the first card swap I have ever done. I usually just to scrapbook page swaps.

The paper used is Silhouette by Close to my Heart with a little pop of Cranberry. I used rhinestones that I found at Michael's to give it a little bling!

I am also doing a birthday card swap. I will post them when I get them done.

More Bella Cards

These are some Bella cards that I have been working on this week. Most of the paper is CTMH. Since I am a mom to boys, it is always great to be able to play with girlie things.

This is Blingabella, made as an engagement card.

This is Fishafella I made as a birthday card.


Well this is my first attempt at a blog so hopefully it will work out. I wanted a place where family and friends could come and see what I have been working on in my "playroom." Lately I have been busy with stamping Bellas and making cards. I hope you enjoy it and come back often.
