Bella Blvd Feature & Giveaway Day One

I don't have a local scrapbook store, so whenever we hit up a big city my husband is awesome enough to let me get lost in one. A few months ago I was in one and kept picking up paper from Bella Blvd. Most of what I purchased that day was from them! I decided then that we needed to feature them here on Practical Scrappers and contacted Stephanie, the designer and owner of Bella Blvd. She generously provided us with a huge prize pack that we'll be breaking into two so that we can do a giveaway for two of you! Today is the first giveaway...but first we've got some tremendous projects to share with you!

Christine used products from the new Mr. Boy line. This little boy line has everything from cars to dinosaurs to footballs...it's got great variety to fit a wide group of boy personalities and interests. I sat down with the entire line in front of me on my living room floor and put this together with my 8 month old crawling around me. I only used my trimmer, scissors, and exacto knife and a few little letter stickers outside of the line. I was shocked how quickly and easily it all came together. It's rarely that easy and I credit a greatly designed line for that!

Brenda R also used products from the new Mr. Boy line





Sarah used some of the new Sophisticates line on her layout here

Brenda R used more of the new Mr. Boy line on this layout





Today we are giving away some paper and stickers from the Family Dynamix and Tail Waggers & Cat Naps lines. Here's what you can do to win some:
-Make sure you are a follower here & leave us a comment telling us what your favorite line from Bella Blvd is. You can find their lines on their blog.
And if you want some extra chances to win here's some extra things you can do:
-Become a fan of Bella Blvd over on Facebook and let them know we sent you!
-Post on your blog or your facebook page about our giveaway here.

Make sure to come back tomorrow when we will be featuring projects exclusively from the Family Dynamix & Tail Waggers & Cat Naps lines and of course another giveaway!
-Christine

I've visited Bella Bldvd's site. I think I fell in love with the Family Dynamix Collection. They have one beautiful LO for it there at their site. Thanks for providing the link to their site. It was a delicious site to feast my eyes upon their LOs there. And so's your site here at Practical Scrappers. Have a good day!! =)

P.S. I'm already a follower and will try to post your give-away at my blog soon. I left a comment at Bella Blvd's too.

Kath Hernandez said...

posted your give-away in my facebook wall. I can't find the follow button at Bella Blvd's Studio Blog. So, I became Bella Blvd FB fan instead. It's the only button i could find at their blog. ;)

Thanks for this wonderful opportunity.

Kathleen

Love Bella Blvd.. definitely hard to choose my favourite.. I've narrowed it down to three... All Inclusive, Tail Waggers, and I bought every bit of Mr. Boy to document the two weeks we spent getting to know our boys (then 8 and 10) before we adopted them.

Thanks for the opportunity to win!!
