Bella Blvd. Finally Fall Review









{Reported by: Mandy Starner}











What it is: Finally Fall is a new collection, released at CHA Summer by Bella Blvd.
This collection is full of sweet hand drawn images, rich colors and OWLS! They pretty much had me at the wood grain and owls, I'm not gonna lie. There's also pumpkins, apples, trees, sweet little clouds, and the cutest little houses... all the things that come to mind when thinking of Autumn. And for those who aren't into the grungy, vintage look, this collection has the bright graphic patterns that you are looking for.

What I liked:
-The bright colors! I love the vintage look, now and then but I prefer the bright bold patterns.
-The owls and wood grain!!! Two of my very favorite things!
-The paper has the perfect weight. Its not too thin, and not too thick and its double sided! Can't beat that!

What I didn't like:
-I wish that the alpha stickers were the whole sticker sheet. The font is fabulous and I'm greedy, so more is better. ;)
-I'd like to see a few more journaling spot options.

What I made:

Farmer's Market layout


Supplies used: Paper, Cardstock Stickers- Bella Blvd., Ribbon- Offray



Hello Fall Card
Supplies used: Paper and Cardstock stickers- Bella Blvd.


Where and How Much:
Product Name: Bella Blvd. Finally Fall
Manufacturer:Bella Blvd
Available at: Two Peas in a Bucket, Stop and Scrap*(pre-order)

What I think:
Overall, this is a GREAT collection for scrapping all your Autumn photos... pumpkin patch, Thanksgiving, raking leaves... I love the bright fun colors and the bold, hand-drawn patterns!

I don't naturally gravitate towards fall colours but I need them for fall layouts, masculine cards and a few other things. I'm always searching my stash when I need these colours and coming up short. So I'm thrilled to see such a fun, bright but fall coloured collection. Hope I win!!
