So Glad We're Friends

Hey there!  I hope your Thursday is going well.  Today, I'm sharing a page I created using the new Hello Again line from Carta Bella.  This page was up on the My Scraps Blog last week HERE.  I've had this line for a while now, and I finally had the time to play with it.  Oh my is amazing!  I almost couldn't cut the gorgeous pink/orange ombre paper...both sides are gorgeous.  I'm glad I bought two of that sheet!

As much as I like starting with white cardstock and creating my own background, I also love challenging myself to start with a busy piece of patterned paper.  The key is creating a base for your photos so there's some separation from the busy-ness.  This way your photo doesn't get lost in all the pattern, and it still stands out.

I added a button & some cord.  There are a lot of fun stickers on the included sheet :)

I love these little people holding hands...perfect for a "friend" page.  I also threw in some embossed vellum I had cluttering up my desk from a previous project.  Use it up!

More cord, more stickers!

The My Scraps store has a lot of Carta Bella products, as well as a lot of other new brands.  This particular collection has already sold out, but there are TONS of other lines available!  Go check it out HERE.

Thanks for taking a peek, and have a great day!


  1. Fabulous job! I love those beautiful papers from that collection also. You used them perfectly!

  2. Love it Missy!! I think the dark background works great on your page, and your photo really does stand out, from the layers you created behind it! Such an awesome use of the Hello Again collection!
