It's time for a new monthly project sheet over on the Bella Blvd blog, and this month, I focused on the new Birthday Girl collection.
You can download our Birthday project sheet HERE.
Keep in mind, this layout would totally work with the Birthday Boy collection as well. There are so many pieces in these collections that are the same patterns or designs. Just different colors. If I had thought about it, I could have made a boy layout just to show you how similiar it would look.
I dug out these photos of Alyssa, taken on her thirteenth birthday. I used the heart patterned paper as my background paper, and started by adhereing my photos. I knew I wanted two 4x6 photos side by side, across the center, and then my two smaller 2x3 photos in the upper corner. I added a border sticker to seperate the photos.
I had to get creative with my title, since I only had select chipboard letters left over from my CHA projects. I decided to add in a few letter stickers and an older purple chipboard letter to complete my title. The fun flower sticker is one of my favorites, and you can find one in every collection. Including the Birthday Boy collection.
I wanted to use a wide variety of the different patterned papers in the collection. So I choose to create a layered banner border, below my 4x6 photos. I cut a bunch of small strips of paper, in varying widths and lengths, and cut notches on one end of each piece. Then I started adhering them from the outside edges, overlapping them a bit as I went.
Once I had them all adhered, I added a strip of the designer tape across the layout, to cover up the edges of the banner pieces (since some pieces didn't go all the way up to the photos). I printed out my journaling and adhered it across the banner border, and then added a few threaded buttons to embellish.
And if you have been looking to purchase the new birthday collections, you're in luck. Two Peas In A Bucket got them in last week. You can find all of Bella's new products HERE.
