I had this layout up on the Bella Blvd blog over the weekend, and almost forgot to share it here.
I created this layout for the catalog, to feature Bella's designer tapes. It's not very often that I create 8.5x11" layouts. In fact, I can probably count the ones I have done on one hand. I started this layout by picking out an assortment of the tapes, in a color pallette that I liked. From there I went searching for a photo to go with them. This older one of Haley was perfect.
I used my favorite grid patterned paper (from the Family Dynamix collection) for the base of the page, and matted it on a fun aqua chevron patterned paper. Then I started adding strips of the designer tapes, lengthwise across the page, so that they would go underneath my photo. The grid background actually came in really handy for this, since I could line up the tapes nice and straight on the grid.
I adhered the photo over the tapes, to the right of the page. Then I added some cute little crochet flowers and some threaded buttons to embellish the tapes.
I pulled out some of the Simply Simona chipboard letters to use for my title, in both the pink and the black. I wanted a few black letters, to tie in with the black designer tape. Once again, the grid paper made it super easy to line up my title letters perfectly. I'm very picky about things being straight ;)
Speaking of Bella Blvd. This week, Bella is celebrating it's FORTH birthday, and we're having a big celebration over on the blog. What better way to celebrate a birthday, than to share tons and tons of inspiration using our new Birthday Boy and Birthday Girl collections? And I'm pretty sure there will be a giveaway in there as well. You can check out all the fun stuff HERE.
