Freebie Friday – Bella Blvd

Freebie Friday with Jen Walker

Happy Friday, Expo friends! I am writing this post from Schaumburg, IL where this weekend’s Scrapbook Expo is taking place. While I am here, I am getting lots of little video clips and photos to share with you next week!

One of the exhibitors at Scrapbook Expo in Schaumburg this weekend is Bella Blvd. When I was touring the show floor today, I took a moment to check out Bella Blvd’s booth. If you are looking for bright colourful products, their booth is one to visit for sure! You will find workshop kits, page kits, discount die-cuts, and their Invisibles specialty papers, all at special Scrapbook Expo only prices.

When Stephanie from Bella Blvd knew she would be participating in this show, she asked if we could kick off the weekend with a special giveaway. Of course we agreed! When asked about the Expo, Stephanie said, “We absolutely love Scrapbook Expo and the opportunity we have to meet customers face-to-face!”

Before we get to the giveaway, here are some layouts from their team showcasing their new Family Frenzy collection. This first layout was created by Laura Vegas.


This next layout was created by Stephanie Buice.


Isn’t this collection wonderful?  Would you like to win the Family Frenzy Collection kit from Bella Blvd.?


“The Family Frenzy collection was inspired by the chaos and frenzy that makes up our daily lives! Doesn’t it feel like we have our own “isms” and family routines, outings, and schedules? This collection embraces the randomness that makes up families from Saturday morning donut runs, to weekend bike rides and games. The classic color palette also is so versatile for impromptu family selfies and formal family photographs, too!”

Learn more about Bella Blvd. here:

For your chance to win an amazing prize pack from our friends at Bella Blvd, leave a comment on this blog post. The giveaway runs until midnight on Thursday, August 27th.

    I love the Scrapbook layout. Scrapbook pages mean a lot to me. Family has always been very important to my life. Without family we would be so lost in this world. Family is togetherness, through hard and good times. I love this wonderful package by Bella Blvd. Thank you for a chance to win it. Edwina Brown

  16. Sandi B says:

    What a fabulous collection. Love Bella Blvd and their products. Also, had a blast at the expo in Schaumburg this past weekend. Loved all the vendors and how everyone was so friendly and helpful. Definitely worth the 4 hour drive. Can’t wait for next years.

  17. Vicki Gast says:

    I love the bright colors that you use. I am usually a more pastel person and would love to do a layout with your pretty patterns. I attended the Akron event and can’t wait until next year! I hope you give a class.

  27. Tammie T says:

    As a mom of 4, I know all too well about the chaos of family life – and I’m loving every minute!! It’s nice to hear how the kit was inspired – it has certainly inspired me to create some family pages focusing on our traditions like the “snow parties” we have while Dad’s plowing, our pancake Sundays, and even those chaotic moments cleaning the house in preparation for our annual Christmas party! This colorful collection is just perfect for capturing all of those and more! Thank you Bella Blvd for creating it and for giving us this opportunity to win! See you at the Expo!

    I absolutely love Bella Blvd. The colors are so beautiful and definitely fit my very colorful personality. I took a class with them at the Expo in Schaumburg. I actually took a recess with some classmates so we could run to the Bella Blvd booth before the goodies were gone. The class was a blast and so was our instructor. She grabbed me later as I was shopping and pointed out more new items. Of course, I bought more! Love, love, love Bella Blvd!

  44. Carmen Graulau says:

    I was lucky enough to attend the Scrapbook Expo in Schaumburg and visited Bella Blvd, booth. Their papers were just gorgeous. I did get a couple of the beautiful Invisibles specialty papers and wish I could have gotten more. My sister got just about one of each design since they were at a great price. Look forward to your video clips to see if my Sis and I show up in the background 🙂
