Tuesday Tip: Make it Shine

So I will admit that I hadn't played with designer tape until I recently opened my package from Bella Blvd.  They have cool patterns on their tapes...chevrons, stripes, plaid.  I was intrigued.

I built the layout below using the It's a Girl collection.  It was cute....but something was missing.  Until I decided to add the sun rays.  Typically, it would be laborious to cut rays, but the designer tape made it super easy.

I went with the yellow chevron and just cut along the diagonals to create each ray.  Seriously, the whole sun took 4 minutes to construct.  My kind of scrapbooking...easy, effective, adorable!

Here is the layout:

I am sooo digging monochromatic color tones right now... something about hue upon hue just creates a great base!  I added the circles as my repeating element around the page.  Then the sun...

I am glad I went the next step and created the sun.
It highlights these pictures....a few of my favorite pictures of Ella...the joy....it just radiates!
