Sharing some Creative Memories

I haven't given Creative Memories much love here lately.
Time to change that! 
I've got quite a few things to share using some of their fun products!
I used the very cool and unique Mediterranean Market to make these 2 layouts.

I used almost the whole pack of Mediterranean Market stickers to embellish the top left and bottom right corners of that layout.
Then on this layout I used the Mediterranean Market stickers and papers again along with the cool Wave Border Maker Cartridge
{hands down Creative Memories Border Maker System is my favorite border making tool!}

I am not sure if I am allowed to share this layout yet.
{shhhhh, don't tell anyone!}
But I want to because I used the Double Heart Chain Border Cartridge 
and it is my favorite!

OK pretend you didn't see that!
Now back to somethings that I know I can share!
Here is a card I made using the Mediterranean Market goodies. 

Then on this next layout I combined the Mediterranean Market papers with the Classic Autumn Stickers.
They make for a fun combination I think!


And here is a card using the same combination!

OK there is a little Creative Memories love for ya!
Oh and USA! USA! USA!
We are a little Olympics-obsessed over here!

**Happy Birthday Bella Blvd**

Time flies when you are having fun!
I can't believe Bella Blvd has been around for 4 years already!
I remember meeting Stephanie at an event when her company was brand new.
It seems like that was just yesterday.
I had a hunch her little business was going to prosper!
And I love being a small part of it!!
In celebration of Bella Blvd's birthday, it is going to be a big ole party over on the Bella blog all week!
Make sure to check it out!
I made a couple of cards for the occasion using the new "Birthday Boy" line.

I love the colors in this line!
There is so much fun variety!

Happy happy birthday Bella Blvd!!
Here's to hoping for at least 4 (or better yet, 40!!) more years!!
And happy Monday to you!

Last day of Endless Inspiration Week

Aw all good things must come to an end!
It is the final day of a packed 2 weeks of Endless Inspiration from the Bella Blvd team!
But it ends with a bang!
For the last day, the inspiration is all about Bella Blvd's embellishments:
flowers, flags, and tapes...oh my!
Here is a card I made combining one of the tapes with the new Thankful line!

I used the tape to create a frame for the card.

I cut the sentiment out of the sheet of Cute Cuts from the Thankful line. 

I even used the tape to frame the inside of the card. 

That is much more fun than a boring, empty card, huh?!
One more time, make sure you check out the Bella Blvd blog for one more day of fabulous Endless Inspiration!
And have a great weekend!!
