June Reflections

Greetings everyone and welcome to July.  As we move into the second half of the year, why not take the opportunity to reflect on the past 6 months.  Are you well on your way to achieving those goals you set for yourself back in January?    

You may recall back in JanuaryI wrote that this was a great time to reflect on where you have been and what changes you would like to make in the future?  What did you want to do more of?  What activities and goals weren't getting enough of your time?  Did you want to learn a new hobby?  Did you crave more time for yourself so you could do the things you enjoy?   Did you need more inspiration in life?  Whatever it was, I suggested to set up a plan to make these "wishes" become a reality. 

So today, I'm interesed to know how are you going with this?  Maybe you have already achieved some or all of your goals.  If so, well done to you!   Or maybe you're still procrastinating?  If it's the latter, then don't despair.  Choose 1 or 2 things that you would like to accomplish this year, then jot down a plan of how you are going to go about it.  You'll be surprised at how much more attainable your goal becomes when you can visualise it on paper and not just in your head.    

In the meantime, if you're in need of a little crafting inspiration, I have just the thing.....  Let me take you back to June where I re-visit all the wonderful inspirational projects our talented Design team created just for you!  


Our featured product included 3 themes from our new Bella! Paperworld collections -  Coast, Wild Thing and Red, White & Blue.   We think they're pretty awesome.  Take a look and see what you think?


Cuddly Wild Thing Layout - by Christine Santos

Today I'm sharing a sweet layout of cuddles with Bella's new Wild Thing paper collection. Can you spot how many animal prints I used on this fun page?

Little Wild Things - by Teresa Horner

Today i have a fun project for your kids to make to decorate their rooms.  My kids loved themed rooms growing up and we always had fun making things to decorate it for them.  So--- we have some brand new Safari themed papers called "Wild Thing" and i got to work and created a fun little upcycle tub for safari toys or cars and a cute little sign for their door.  And you can make lots more things too .... let the creative side of your kids shine and see what they can do.


Red, White & Blue Celebration Cards - by Alicia Barry

Today I have another opportunity to share some seasonable joy with everyone. The new Red, White and Blue range from Bella! is perfect for all your 4th of July celebrations here in the States, but for those back home in Australia, it could also be used for Australia day since the colours match our flag. 

Red, White and Blue | Mixed Media Layout - by Christine Santos

Hi there. I'm excited to share with you my mixed media layout featuring Bella's new Red, White and Blue paper collection. I'm a massive blue color fan and I couldn't help but play and showcase the blue papers of this verastile collection.

Fun 4th July Decorations for the Kids - by Alicia Barry

It's always fun to celebrate all the different holidays in the States, and the 4th of July is one that I have actually not made decorations for before, so this month is a great time to celebrate the new Red, White and Blue paper collection from Bella!


Coastal Summer Layout - by Beck Beattie

We love hitting the beach in the summer so I have no shortage of pictures to scrapbook with this theme.  I decided to keep the design a little simple so that you may be able to take the collection and create a series of pages using the same design switching up each of the papers for different pages!  

Scrapping Good Fun with Bella! Coast - by Beck Beattie

Hey there Ruby Rock-It fans!  It's Beck Beattie here today to share with a scrapbook page I created using the new 'Coast' collection.  


Father's Day Brag Book - by Teresa Horner

It's almost Father's Day in a couple of weeks so today i have a fun and easy project to share that your kids can make for their dads this year.  It's a Father's day bag book and you can fill it with pictures of all the kids and special messages in the pocket part of the bags to let them know how special they are to your family.  I made mine for my nephew who has 2 young kids and i am going to have them do handprints and put lots of pictures of them from this past year.  It is easy to make and it's not pricey either.  Keep reading for a simple how to....
