Kelly's newest... Don't Ya Love a Parade

Not only does Disney know how to host a great holiday party, they also know how to put on an amazing parade. There are so many fabulous parades to see at Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom. It all starts with staking out that perfect viewing spot -- one with a great angle for taking photos, one in the shade on a hot sunny day, or one where your kids can run around to pass the time waiting. There's so much excitement in the air when the parade starts and you peek down the road and see the first float coming your way. You gotta take tons of photos during the parade. And then you'll need a kit to scrap all those photos. Kelly's so excited to introduce a new parade themed kit today called....

This kit is just bursting with color and lively elements. There's confetti, swirls, star bursts, balloons and sparkles along with some journal tags, stitching and gorgeous layered flowers. The 15 papers are full of fun patterns and colors that will make you smile! Check out this set of 5 word art titles. They'll add some excitement of your layout.

A new part of this kit's collection is a set of 4 clustered paper stacks. How gorgeous! Start with one of these papers as your base and your page is off to a good start!

Next you can layer on some page starter borders and frames. Look at all the color and fun just bursting out here!

Kelly's newest releases are on sale for 25% off until midnight Sunday so make sure you grab these at Kellybell Designs Store.

With the paper stacks, page starters, and word art, it's so easy and quick to put together a fabulous parade layout with festive colors. Take a look at what I created.

There's a parade of freebies to present to you from Kelly's Creative Team. Stake out your spot first at Jenn's Blog, round the corner to get to Roxana's Blog, and the parade will end at Sarah's Blog. You'll be picking up a border freebie, frame cluster and Quick Page. Follow the parade and leave some love for the gals along the way. Then go shopping at Kellybell Designs Store and grab this beautiful parade collection.

Kelly's newest...Vintage Mickey

Scrapbooking is all about preserving your memories and making the photos and the pages last forever. Isn't it funny that sometimes we want to to take perfectly good photographs and make them look vintage? And take papers and make them look distressed or wrinkled. Why? Because the vintage look is absolutely gorgeous!! Today, Kelly is combining her love for Mickey Mouse with a spectacular vintage feel.


'Vintage Mickey' is a fabulous collection of 15 distressed papers and vintage textures in classic Disney colors of black, red and cream. Inside the kit you'll find 3 word art strips, 2 flairs, tape strip, stitching, old fashioned camera, wax seals, banner, flourishes and more. There's a red alpha framed in black that is just stunning! This kit is fabulous for scrapping your photos of Mickey from Epcot's Character Spot, Chef Mickeys, or Magic Kingdom. I know I certainly have tons of photos of Mickey so it's nice to have a variety of kits to choose from for scrapping character layouts.

Take a look at these clustered Page Starters. It's a gorgeous collection of borders, frames and clusters.

You'll find all of Kelly's kits at Kellybell Designs Store. These 2 new releases are 25% off this weekend only.

This vintage kit has so many scrapping possibilities. Here's my page:

If you're looking for traditional Disney colors, you might also like Kelly's 'I Love That Mouse'. You can try combining both the vintage and the classic look in your layouts.

The ride a WDW well it is one of my favs. This word art adds the perfect title to your pirate layouts. Be sure to check out Natalie's Ahoy Matey! kit. This word art is the perfect accompaniment.

Natalie made these templates for the story tellers out there. These are wonderful because they give you plenty of room to journal and the journaling blocks are placed where the stories are easily read.

She can hear voices in the mountain and see colors in the wind. Of course, she's Pocahontas and here is her kit....


'Around The Riverbend' is a fabulous collection of 15 papers in woodsy textures and patterns mixed with gorgeous turquoise. There's Pocahontas and Meeko along with a tee pee, tree, campfire, branches, canoe, feathers, flairs and other pretty flowers, strings and leaves. Plus Kelly made a stunning wooded alpha in a deep rich brown.
