Are you visiting the Bella Blvd blog every day this week? I hope so! For the last three days, we've shared the three new collections with you, each of which has some fabulous new embellishments that coordinate perfectly with the collections. Well, today we wanted to put the focus on the new embellishments and the new chipboard alphas. We want to make sure you know they're not JUST for that collection, but are meant to be mixed and matched with all of the Bella products.
I actually have two layouts up over on the Bella blog today, but I'm only going to share one here on my blog. I'll share the other one tomorrow. Today though, I wanted to share one of my Designer Tape layouts from the catalog.
I am in love with the Designer Tapes, both new and old. I decided to pick out a fun mix of tapes, in my favorite colors, and create a frame around my layout. Also, notice that I used pattern papers from the Birthday Boy collection. You know I'm always telling you that Bella's papers are so versitle, they can be used for anything, right ;)
I started from the outer corners and worked my way in, adding torn pieces of Designer Tape one after another, overlapping them as I went. Designer confession: See that tape that I added to the top of Sarah's photos? My original plan was to include it in my decorative tape border, but the roll of tape must have gotten away from me on my desk. I had all of the pieces neatly arranged, and in a very specific order, so I was bummed that I couldn't add it in.
Once I had all of the pieces adhered, I machine stitched along the tapes to help secure them. See that brown pattern paper, full of circles? I LOVE that paper! It also comes in pink, in the Birthday Girl collection.
For my title, I once again used a mix of the new Sienna chipboard alphas and the High Five alpha stickers.
The small circles were punched from the polka dot pattern paper in the Birthday Boy collection. I adhered some of them with pop dots to add a little dimension.
Now, head on over to the Bella Blvd blog, where you can see all of the new embellishments and the new chipboard alphas featured, piece by piece. There are also FOUR layouts that you'll want to check out! Don't forget to leave a comment on the Bella blog today, where we are giving one lucky reader a chance to win a set of ALL the new embellishments and chipboard alphas, before you can even buy them! Check on back here tomorrow, where I will share one more layout for this week ;)
