So Many of my smiles begin with you

Hi Everyone, 
Good morning, I have a fun tutorial showcased on the Bella Blvd. blog today and I would like to share it with you.  

So Many of My Smiles

I had these bright cheerful photos that I took of my daughter at a park several years ago and I wanted to create a
colorful background
to match.  I love Bella's new designer tapes, the palette is so happy & bright and looks great paired with
the new feathers.

Step 1:  To create the clouds for this page I first trimmed several pieces of white cardstock just a little
bit larger than the punch that I intended on using.

Step 2: I layered strips of Bella Blvd designer tapes on my cut pieces.

Step 3: Then I punched out the clouds and layered them on my page.  I even save one of the cloud negatives and adhered
it to my page. These make such cute embellishments.


I also created a fun colorful title out of designer tapes by first - cutting my title using my Silhouette
Cameo, and then layering strips of designer tapes on strips of paper and adhering behind the title.

Sophisticates: Freestyle Banana
Designer Tapes: Polka Dot Combo, Chevron Combo, Gray Dot, Hot Pink Dot, Yellow Chevron

Feathers: Gulf, Ice
Button Market: Stars, Orange Stars, Masculine Mix


  1. Gorgeous layout, Gina!!! I love the negative die cutting, and the clouds are such a fun touch.

  2. Super cute way to use the tape and such a cute layout!

  3. Such a fun and colorful way to use the tapes, Gina. So creative and beautiful!
