Bliss by Dana Tatar


Hi! Dana here today sharing a layout about the thing that I love the most -- music -- for the September "Things We Love" Challenge. I don't know how I would get through my day without it. I used memorabilia from the last concert I attended, a ticket stub and partial set list, as well as a vintage CD shard from one of my favorite albums that dates back to 1994. To stay that my Father didn't always understand by choice in music is a bit of an understatement! The lyrics to the songs performed by Soundgarden and Nine Inch Nails are just as cathartic to me today as they were when I was a teenager. It was absolutely amazing to hear both bands on the same night.


I tucked a digital tag created by Marivic behind layers of vintage papers from a Zeus and Zoe Kit. The gorgeous piece of doily chipboard is from Scrapiniec and the bright yellow sticker is from the 7 Dots Studio Hopefully collection. The fabulous music print paper is from the 7 Dots Studio Nature Walk collection.


This fun chipboard speech bubble is also from Scrapiniec. I included a quote from Chris Cornell (Soundgarden) under this photo of Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails). Most of my favorite musicians are not afraid to write about their darkest moments. The comfort that I get from hearing and relating to their words is hard to express and definitely priceless.

"If I wrote a line, then questioned it - 'Do I really want people to hear me say that? Is that too personal?' - That moment of fear meant I should keep it. That means it's powerful." - Chris Cornell


This doily was included in my Zeus and Zoe Kit. I topped it with a 7 Dots Studio sticker and a stunning butterfly from Kay's Etsy Shop. I included more personal journaling down the right side of the page.

I hope you can find the time to create a project about what you love to share with use this month!


This September we want to know about the THINGS that you love. Make a project telling us about the things that you love, no matter what it is, we'd love to know! You can take photos and add to your project or you can journal it. Most of the time we never get to talk about ourselves, so this month we will talk about all the lovely things we love. We would love to see what you create so please join our Things We Love Challenge!

The Magic of Books Layout by Kay

Hello once again fellow Berry71Bleu fans!  Kay here with my project for this month's challenge hosted by Marivic.  The theme this month is: Things We Love

You can find the full details of the challenge here.

I have many things that I enjoy in life--usually it's the little things that give the most pleasure.  So I had a tough time just picking out one.  In the end I went with the enjoyment I find in reading books & in particular the joy I found when I discovered the Harry Potter series.  So the things I love that I'm highlighting with my project are actually seven--the seven books that make up the Harry Potter series.
Here's the mood board provided by Marivic.  It highlights several items that may be a personal favorite to several of you Berry71Bleu followers!
 Many moons ago I bought Harry Potter themed papers & embellishments.  This was the perfect project to finally use these up. Along with all these embellishments I also included a bit of stamping & textures to my background created with mists & modeling paste.

I also included two digital tags created by our very own Marivic--the 'Love' & 'Just Breathe' tag.
 I've included my journaling in this scroll.  Storing my thoughts in little scrolls such as this is my favorite way of storing journaling.  In addition to having a large area to lay down my thoughts--these also add a unique embellishment to my projects.  I have a tutorial up on my blog on how I create these scrolls.  You can find that here if interested.
Here's a close up of the star texture I created on my background.  I used a stencil & modeling paste for this effect.  I dressed up my background a bit more with random dots of Stickles & splatters of mists in white & yellow.
I've always had an overactive imagination--even as a child shows such as 'Bewitched' intrigued me.  How wonderful would it be to wiggle your nose & have your wishes come true!  So when Harry Potter came along it opened up my imagination to a whole new world full of magic, wizards & creatures beyond my wildest dreams!  What a fabulous journey these books were!

My design is based on a sketch provided by Page Drafts.

Now it's your turn--what thing or things in your life just makes your day complete?  I was very close to making the theme of my page my everyday morning cup of coffee--but the books ended up winning instead.

Please make sure you check back often to see the rest of the design teams interpretation of this challenge...enjoy the rest of the week!
