Bella Blvd: New Product Inspiration

The newest collections from Bella Blvd have begun shipping:
Summer Squeeze, Scattered Sprinkles & Classic Calendars

I have two cards that I made for this week's reveal

If you have any type or size of heart punch or die on hand then you too can easily make a 
pair of strawberries to accent any project! I punched two 1.5" hearts from the
 McIntosh Sprinkles Paper and simply embellished the fronts with leaves and small white pearls.
 They look so sweet mixed in with the cute Strawberry Squeeze Paper from the 
Summer Squeeze Collection!

 Supplies: Classic Calendars: Peep Calendar; Summer Squeeze: Strawberry Squeeze,
 Just Write Journaling Stickers, Treasures & Text; Scattered Sprinkles: McIntosh Sprinkles

 For this card I kept the design easy and let the single bloomed flower act as the focal point
 and host for the sentiment sticker. I love allowing standard shapes to take on a whole new
 look when clustered together, as I did here with four of the Crochet Hearts! I filled in the 
 center with one of the large round icon stickers and then clipped a thin stem from
 one of the green stripes found on the background paper.

 Supplies: Scattered Sprinkles: Peep Sprinkles, Treasures & Text; Classic Calendars: 
Treasures & Text; Summer Squeeze: Just Write Journaling Stickers; Crochet Hearts: 
Bell Pepper; Button Market: Hot Pink Flowers

Drop by the Bella Blvd blog to check out all of the Design Team's project for the week!
I'm lovin' all of the new collections...hope you will too!

Love Authentique Papers and Unity Stamps? Then come on board as we hop and share projects that combine both of these beautiful companies into one! **You should be arriving here from my sweet friend, Thienly's Blog** 
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…
