Mummy Love | Bella Blvd

Monday 3 May 2021


Hi everyone, I have a new layout to share today for Bella Blvd. This week is ‘Mom’ week and we are celebrating Mother’s Day with our projects. I choose to scrapbook a photo of me and my little two year old boy, Theo. He is always saying ‘mummy’, it is his absolutely favourite word and I hear it so many times every day! He is also giving me a kiss in the photos – super cute!

I choose a monochrome colour scheme of blues and black. I picked out some mixed media colours to use and created a background on a sheet of white. I applied the paint with the packaging technique, added splatters and also some big drips. I used Shimmerz Paints: Refresh Mint, Boogie Boardin’ Blue, Steely Blue Eyes, Oakie Bear Blue, and Hint of Mint.

While my background was drying, I started to make some folded hearts. I picked out four colours from the Bella Besties Freehand Graph and dot pack: Black, Blueberry, Ice & Gulf. I cut these into small pieces of 3x4”, 4x5.5” and 2.5x3”. I cut one of each size from each of the four colours. I rounded off the ends and then concertina folded the rectangles. Once folded I then folded the concertina strip in half and glued the inner edges together using a hot glue gun. Once dry and fanned out, this creates a super cute folded heart! I repeated this technique for all the rectangles and ended up with three different sized hearts in each of the four colours.

I arranged the folded hearts onto my mixed media background, together with my photos which I printed in black and white. I stuck all the hearts to the background with a hot glue gun to make sure they stayed in place! I had a few gaps in between my folded hearts so took a tiny heart punch and scraps of the same papers, and punched lots of tiny hearts which I glued in between the folded hearts and above and below them too.

I then pulled out the same four colours of Florence alphabet stickers: Black, Blueberry, Ice & Gulf. I added the word ‘Mummy’ in each colour in the same area of colour on my layout. I also added a few hearts from the Florence alphabet stickers too.

I added a few hearts and arrows from the Trinkets packs in Black, Blueberry and Ice & Gulf and I finished off with my journaling, some more splatters and some large drops of black ink.

Thank you so much for joining me today and I hope you like how this layout turned out.

Happy scrapping
