Bella Blvd Pinterest Inspired

It's Pinterest Inspired Thursday at 

Isn't this a fun inspiration piece?
I'm really in love with anything felt these days...throwing in some scallops
makes it even more fun!  And of course, the colors and amongst my favs.
Here are the two cards that I made using the photos for the inspiration:

I followed the haphazard flow of the pillows in designing this card.
 I started with a very basic background by using two of the grid patterns from the 
Freestyle Sophisticates line. Next, I hand-cut three of the blooms from the Family Forever paper.
 I wanted the flowers to have the appearance that they were just laying on the paper, 
so I only added a dab of glue to the backs of each before attaching. I added their
 leaves to the side, choosing to highlight one of them by attaching with a foam adhesive.
 I scattered the Crochet Hearts by following the pattern of the flowers, 
added buttons and then finished with a sentiment sticker.

 Supplies: Molly: Trinkets; Family Forever: Family Rules; 
Freestyle Sophisticates: Freestyle Peeps, Freestyle Saltwater; Crochet Hearts: 
Punch, Gulf; Button Market: Pink Flowers

 I love the scallop design found in the inspiration photo; it's so feminine and soft.
 I started by die-cutting a large scalloped shape and then topped it with a large circle
 trimmed in pom pom ribbon. I also kept with the colors found in the photo, which can 
be found in several of the Bella Blvd collections! In keeping with the pom trim,
I added a small white pom pom to the top of the chipboard heart.

Supplies: Molly: Boy Crazy, Peace, Treasures & Text; Daily Chevies: Chevy Peep; 
Snapshots: Captions; Engaged At Last: Chipboard Icons; High Five Alpha Stickers:
 Gulf; Sienna Chipboard Alphabet: Ice

Do you remember a few years back when the altered lunch tins were all the rage?  Well, I've had a couple in my keeps and ran across them the other day.  I thought one dressed up in Authentique Paper would be perfect for Christmas, so I chose the Festive Collection and coordinating stamps from Unity, Naughty or Nice (which is now on SALE!)
 In times past I have covered the top of the tin (when I actually had a pattern), but I  went with tons of colorful ribbons and stamped tags on the handle instead.
 After measuring the height of the body, I cut two strips of "Joyful" paper into 5x12".
Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
