Kellybell Designs Blog Train

Hello again all you Kellybell Designs fans, it's Princess Aurora and Princess Belle. If you remember us from last August, we are here to once again take over Kelly's store, try everything on, eat all her food and give everything away. Well.... sorta maybe.

Every year at the end of August, Kelly and her family take a break, take a vacation and get mentally prepared for her girls to start back to school. While she's not here, all the princesses are coming out and hosting a royally amazing sale. You know you love Kellybell Designs and all her fabulous collections, so for a whole week the entire store will be 50% off (excluding bundles and gift certificates of course). That's a castle sized sale so stock up on all your favorite kits, word arts, page starters, date stamps, paper stacks, paper packs, add-ons, alphas and embellishments.

The 50% off sale starts on Friday August 30th and end at midnight EST on Sunday September 8th. That's plenty of time to browse through the store, check out the CT layouts for inspiration and decide how to fill up your shopping cart. All of these gorgeous collections can be found at

Another fun event for this princess party is a Creative Team Blog Train. You know you love these too!!! The theme is 'Girls Only Paper Stacks'. Each CT gal has made a paper stack for a female Disney character. That royally rocks!!

Here is the path for the blog train. Make sure you stop at each CT gal's blog and pick up your paper stack. In the end you'll have 17 papers.

My female character was Cinderella. Here is my paperstack freebie for her. Have fun shopping the sale and collecting all these girls only paper stacks. Enjoy!

My What A Guy by Kellybell Designs

The Fantasyland expansion at Walt Disney World has brought a beloved character to life, the brave and mighty Gaston. He's handsome, he's strong and.... he's arrogant and uncultured. All that makes him a fun character for a meet and greet. He's happy to show off his biceps or challenge you to an arm wrestling match. Plus he's got his own statue and tavern inside Fantasyland. All this newness means you'll be taking tons of pictures of the new area, new character and new dining spot. Today, Kelly's collection is focused on that special guy, Gaston.

With so many princess kits in her store, it was fun for Kelly to focus on a very manly collection. This kit has dark, rich colors in manly patterns and plaids. For elements, you'll find a bicep arm, antlers, chandelier, beer glass, beer stein, tavern sign, tree, barrels, arrows, flowers, ropes, boot, belt, bow, tavern building, flairs, ribbons, hand mirror, Gaston silhouette, journal tags and much more. The full alpha is a deep dark red with a black outline.

Here's a pack of word art titles that are perfect for topping your photos from meeting Gaston or dining at Gaston's Tavern.

Don't forget the ever popular page starters and paper stacks. Are you addicted to these yet? They're really helpful for getting a jump start on your layouts.

This new collection, 'My What A Guy', is available at for 25% off this weekend only. You'll find lots a fabulous Disney inspired kits in her store.

The colors in this collection are so masculine and rich. You can use this kit to scrap any outdoorsy photos, walks through the woods, hunting trips as well as pictures with Gaston and dining at Gaston's Tavern. Check out the Kellybell Designs blog or Facebook page to see all the CT layouts. Here's a page that I scrapped.

A great new manly kit deserves some matching manly freebies to go with it. Kelly's Creative Team has 3 freebies for you to gather. So strap on your black boots and belt, grab your bow and arrows, and strut on over to the following blogs to pick up your manly prizes. Have a great weekend!!
