Ok,  now let’s discuss this week’s challenge!

it was a GORGEOUS sketch!  I find sketches really let your mojo flow and allow you to play, don’t you?

Before I start, I would like to let you know that Jessabella has stepped down from our team.  She is a mother of 4 and is SO VERY BUSY so she had to cut down on some commitments which we completely understand.  I wanted to thank her for all of her amazing contributions, her wit, her humor, her amazing marketing talent!! Jessabella you will be missed!!!

Ok, now let’s begin

Ebrubella used WHAT’S COOKIN’ by Mo Manning

Paulineabella used the Apple Basket from Lulu’s set of FRUITS

Danabella used LULU’s  SNOWMAN

Lindabella used VINTAGE HI WHEEL

Cathabella used IRMA and VIENO


Robinabella used YOU ARE UNIQUE


is that EYE CANDY OR WHAT?  OMG.. I think Bellarific Fridays and ART JOURNALING Mondays are my favorite days of the week… (ahem, don’t ask me that when I am actually writing the post..LOL)

Now for da FAMOUS SISTAHOOD!  I do see some new names which is always fun for me!  Welcome to da sistahood newbie sistahs!

Halley used SPRINGTINI


Jeanette used LOVEBEETLE huggabugg






Olga used BYE BYE girl

Rachel used CINDERELLA

Stephanie used HUGGYBELLAS



Can I hear THREE CHEERS for da SISTAHOOD!?  Way to go!! this was an amazing, INSPIRATIONAL, Bellarific Friday!   Thank you all for participating!

Now for the tidbit of GREAT news!

Well peeps, the time has come to unveil just a little portion of what our “surprise” is.    If any of you shopped at the URBAN SCRAPYARD a couple of years ago and met Angela Urbano, the owner and artistic director, you will know her very well.  While designing the most PHENOM clean, graphic layouts to working with Quickutz and designing one of their most popular dies sold to date, Angela is one talented SISTAH!

Angela was just the person I needed to enter my life when she did.  I received a random email from her out of the blue.. I was wondering why..   I was basically looking for “her” without knowing that it would be “her” if you understand what I mean.  She filled a very big void, both in the store and in my personal creative life.

From being  friendly retail competitors to our first meeting a few weeks ago, we became fast friends.  Our two worlds literally collided.  LITERALLY.  Our styles, our demeanor, our LOOK (LOL).. we are complete opposites.. but there is ONE COMMON THREAD that runs through both of our veins. our bodies. our souls.  And that is PASSION.  Passion for life, for the arts, and most of all a passion for creativity.

Angela will be teaching at Stamping Bella.. sharing her passion with all of you.  Sharing her style.. Sharing how her life has changed in the last few years.  You will be thrilled to meet her, reunite with her.. and learn from her.  I am so excited to have her so close J

But it does not end there.  We are both working together on something new and exciting.  Stay TUNED.

Now NEXT WEEK’S BELLARIFIC THEME IS POP IT UP!  Add some dimension to your cards.. pop dots… crystal lacquer.. you name it..

Don’t forget MONDAY’S ART JOURNALING challenge.. add a piece of magazine collage that is meaningful to you and explain why 🙂

Hope you have a great weekend sistahs.. we expect lots of rain.. I expect lots of Art journaling!

mwah to da sistahs who love to scribble 🙂
