It’s BELLLLLARIFIC FRIDAY!

Hi sistahs!  I hope you will enjoy this post.  It was such a pleasure to post and the entries were more than phenomalish!!  I am glad to see that da sistahs enjoyed the challenge.. more sketch challenges to follow!

First I am so excited to introduce all of you to our newest Scrappy Babe!!! She will be interpreting our challenges into scrappy projects!  She is teaching at Bellaland and she is sooo amazing and scrumptious.  We lovey her!  so please welcome Sarah Pendergrast.  Please add her to your blog addictions as her projects are SOOO much fun!!

Here is a little bio on her

“Having always been uber crafty, I have dabbled in several crafts over the years.  I think I made my first scrapbook in junior high by pasting in little bits of memorabilia, girl guide badges and various ribbons into linear and organized pages, but obviously nothing that rivals the pages of today.  I tried scrapbooking again after I got married, when I attempted to make a wedding album.  Unfortunately, I didn’t realize that the essence of scrapbooking is to tell a story and in my quest for completeness, tried to find a way to incorporate over 700 photos into my book.  After that frustrating and disappointing experience, everything was packed into a box, and shoved to the back of a closet, with the realization that scrapbooking wasn’t for me.

However, after my daughter was born a few years later, I decided to give it a try again after going to a Friday night crop.  With a little guidance from my fellow croppers, I fell in love with the hoppy as it is today.  I couldn’t resist the beautiful patterned papers, tiny brads and most of all the endless creative potential.  Not long after I took up the hobby with a passion, I began teaching classes, and looking for ways to develop my skills and learn new techniques.  After much thought, I invested in a Quickutz die cutting tool, which opened up a whole world of creative possibilities.  You can find Quickutz designs incorporated into many of my projects, and I had the honour of serving on their design team in 2008.  These days, I try to eek out little bits of time for scrapbooking as I am home with my 2 kids, in search of that elusive thing they call “balance”.  I love to tell stories, and I love to create.  I’m thrilled that I’ve been asked to be part of the Bellarific team and share my passion and projects with all of you! “

So here was the sketch challenge this week

How much fun was this challenge?  it was so much fun that I couldn’t even figure out how to make the card..LOL.. I kept on asking Nicky does this look right? the square’s too small.. where do I put the circle? LOLOL.. just couldn’t get it.. so I’m  out this week.. I have VOTED MYSELF OFF cuz really? if you woulda seen what I concocted?!?!? OMG terrible.

So let’s begin with DA NEW KID ON DA BLOCK

Sarahbella made a gorgeous layout following the sketches’ guidelines. Isn’t it stunning?? Sarah used Collage press Sweet Shoppe papers, American Craft LAX THICKERS, prima flowers, glimmer mist.. YUM!

Nickabella made a gorgeous card using flutterby huggabugg.  For the circle she used was the Marvy Extra Giga 3.5″ circle punch, she texturized it using the new QUICKUTZ embossing folder POLKADOTS and used the beeyootiful Basic Grey WIND CHIMES paper from the wisteria collection. Gorgeous!

Danabella made a BEEYOOTIFUL CARD using QUEEN BEE HUGGABUGG and our crystal bonbons.  Stunning!

Jenabella used Cakey Watt and our sentiment for her sketch.. isn’t it adorable??? She also used  American Crafts SPLASH paper for her circle, and bo bunny WASABI dot paper from the double dot collection of papers.  Her scalloped punch in the background used is the FISKARS APRON LACE punch.. isn’t this card just PHENOM?

Joannabella made the CUH-UTEST card using our TURTLE-TOTS CHEERLEADER and our sentiment.. check out the pompoms.. OMG.. all frilly and sticking out… could you just faint??

Karenabella made an absolutely stunning card using TOOL TIME.  Is this not a the most perfect father’s day card?? and the hardware?  YUMMALISH!  LOVE THIS CARD!

Lindabella made a STUNNING card using our SUNDAY DRESS stamp (but the sunday dress is discontinued.. shhhhhhh).. IT’s GORGEOUSSSSSSS! Linda used our gorgeous light cocoa flat backed glass pearls, cuttlebug swiss dots to texturize the square, the  dotted scallop slim edger punch for the pink porder under the sentiment.. PHENOM!

Paulabella made a SCRUMMY (Dena’s word mixing Scrumptious and Yummy together- please add this to DA BELLA dictionary pronto) card using CHARLOTTE KETTO.

Paula also used Basic Grey’s Urban Prairie collection for the background.. did I not promise SCRUMMINESS?

Shannanabella made a gorgeous card using ALTEE ‘TUDE and our light cocoa dots.. BEEYOOOOOTIFUL!!!
