Family Forever Projects - New Bella Blvd

Jen Chesnick- Three's Company- Large

Hey gang!  Sharing my last two Bella Blvd CHA projects today.  The first I used the new Family Forever with a focus on Feathers.  I wanted to incorporate the dream catcher trend in a funking way.  Perfect for the use of feathers.

The Moore Clan is another Family Forever project.  This was my favorite of this line.  I like how it came together and the colors are really my style.

Miss Terrible Two (at 20 months)


Well it's been a minute since I posted Parker's "not so monthly" update.  I was trying to do a 18 month photo shoot and well that didn't turn out too well.  We have now entered the terrible twos around here.  Exactly at 18 months it was like a switch.  She is now 20 months old, weighs in at 33lbs and roughly 35" tall.  She isn't fond of the camera anymore.  Or maybe its just the fact I want her to sit still.  Either way these are the only photos I have taken on my big camera in awhile.  Christmas was even a bust! HOW SAD! 


She really liked her cheer-leading outfit Jamie sent her.  I thought for sure I would get some grins.  Nope. 



This is as close as I got, then she went and pouted. 


I know all ya'll are like it doesn't end, 3 is worse.  I am kinda sick of hearing it doesn't get better.  She can be quite the handful and with her size well it's not easy to handle! Kudos to Moms with more than one LOL!

She said Yes + Bella Blvd

Jen Chesnick- Love and Marriage-300dpi


Bella Blvd put together a catalog of older lines for CHA.  I was glad to have a few layouts used for that catalog.  This is one of them using the Love & Marriage line with bits of Finally Engaged. I really like this line especially the chipboard.  I am a sucker for 3D embellishments.  I have a coupe more layouts to share later on!

Jen Chesnick- Pretty Girl- Large

Hi everyone!  I have two more projects to share today featuring Bella's new line Molly.  It really does fit Parker to a T, it will be a lot of fun to use for her scrapbook. For this layout I cut out several hearts then layered the negatives with lots of foam dots and extra chipboard.

Next I created a board of sorts for the show and I went ahead and created something that would look similar so I would have a photo to share.  If you remember I did something like this for halloween as well on my big advent calendar.

Thermoweb Video Tutorial + Cutting Fabric with your Silhouette


The idea is to share a bit of happy, peace, support, and love…or whatever else you’d like to add to help those in challenging circumstances.  During CHA they will be hanging on display for all to see.

Jen Chesnick- Hope Banner- Thermoweb

I created a banner to participate in Banners of Hope for CHA.  Unfortunately I should have read the guidelines.  Being a paper crafter when I think of a banner I think of the above........wellllllll that wasn't what they wanted.  However!  It still suited the purpose of finally making a video on how to cut fabric with your Silhouette Machine and Heat & Bond by Thermoweb.

I went looked for the interfacing sold by Silhouette and let me was 4 times the cost of the Thermoweb product.  I am not saying that because I design for Thermoweb.  You can check the prices for yourself.  The video is short and sweet and if I can do it, so can any other paper crafter I promise!

Supplies Used:

Heat N Bond Lite
Medium Weight Interfacing
