just wanted to show you some ideas I did with my HANGING BLOCKS.. I just love them all.. there are SOO MANY of them and you can make a quick and easy card or a border on your scrapbooking page for ANY occasion!
you can find all the hanging blocks for different themes here
the one I worked with here is called the hanging stars block
My style of stamping is really very clean and S-I-M-P-L-E, I am always on the go, I never have time to “think” per se (how sad is that to have the GUTS to admit that..LOL).. and I love to be creative.. I love to stamp.. I love to color.. but I think I am majorly TYPE A.. as many of my colleagues would confirm So… Having said that, I will try to make some samples-for-people-who-have-no-time-to-think-like-DA-BELLA. Samples that focus on limited layers, pretty papers.. perhaps nestabilities and copics and lyra colored pencils with mineral spirits.. hmmmm not so simple no mo’. That’s why the NICKABELLA is so important as she makes beeyoootiful layouts, thinks before she puts down a layer.. LOL. My Anchor. The bellarific babes also THINK.. ME??? I no thinky so much. So I hope this helps some people who feel stressed about layouts etc.. sometimes, you don’t need to think!
In the card below I used silky black ribbon.. brand new in da store with more colors coming.. this 0.5″ ribbon is PHENOM and looks like silk but is stiff enough to tie knots.. YUM! also used this sentiment and the wish charm
Below is a card using the same DREAM STREET PAPER as the one above.. love the stars theme! it is more of a generic card.. a little more “black tie” (lol) where I used a celebrate stamp and I stamped the stars hanging block stamp repetitively across the card rather than just once. I also used the new black ribbon to tie the bows.. OH and LOTS AND LOTS of glittah on both cards with the quickie glue pen (one of my favoritest tools).
Is the scrapbook paper below not the cutest thing ever??? You can embellish any of your scrapbook pages with any stamp.. the hanging blocks are great for a top border! add a picture and some embellishments and VOILA.. super cute.. super SIMPLE BEEYOTIFUL CLEAN layout. Just love this idea!
So what do you thinky? Please let the TYPE -A -abella know! Would love to hear your thoughts (just LIE if you have to)
and DO NOT FORGET our Challenge this week. You can see it here!
