Love you more than the Stars | Bella Blvd | Sketch Week and To the Moon

Friday 18 March 2022


Hi everyone, here is a new layout for Bella Blvd. I’m playing along with this month’s sketch and I’ve used the To the Moon Collection!

I used the sketch as a starting point and chose a 6x4 landscape photo to go in the big space at the top. I mounted this on to a black journaling card. I have used that wonderful constellations paper as my background.

I then decided to use the remaining pieces of the To the Moon Cut Out set. These are sets of pre-cut cut files that come with cutting templates so they can be back filled. What an amazing product these are for people without electronic cutting machines! I had already used the title on a previous layout so I was left with a cluster of stars to use.

I made three of the stars into shaker pockets, by backing them with acetate, adding a wall of foam pads around the edges of the shapes, filling them with sequins and closing them up with patterned paper. I back filled the remaining shapes normally.

Because my star cluster was quite large, it looked a bit off balance with the photo in the middle as represented by the sketch, so I moved the whole design over to the right side.  Sketches are a starting point and can be adapted to work with the supplies that you have or want to use!

I added an ephemera title ‘I love you more than all the stars in the sky’ which is such an adorable phrase!

Down at the bottom of the layout, I added a couple of label stickers. I further embellished the cluster of stars with more punched stars, chipboard stickers and cardstock stickers. I also used some enamel shapes.

I finished off with splatters of white paint. I really love how this one turned out!

This is my final layout of my Creative Team term with Bella Blvd. I’ve loved inspiring you over the last year with these beautiful Bella Blvd products that are so bright and fun to use. Thank you so much for having me!

Happy scrapping
