For the next few weeks, over on the Bella Blvd blog, we are going to be sharing lots and lots of our Winter CHA booth projects. Yesterday we started with projects featuring the new Engaged At Last collection.
I wanted to create an engagement layout, so I asked my talented friend Krista if I could borrow some engagement photos from one of her sessions. I chose these photos of her friends Matt and Nicole, and printed them in black and white, which allowed me to mix and match them with any colors in the collection.
I started by misting my white cardstock background paper with some pink spray mist. I adhered some strips of patterned paper and a few border stickers across the top and bottom of the page, and added some machine stitching. I choose three patterned papers (the pink chevron, the black diamond, and the aqua arrows), and trimmed a large rectangle from each paper. I distressed the edges of each piece and machine stiched around the edges.
The distressing and stitching around the papers helps add a lot of dimension, so that the papers aren't so flat against the page. I adhered them across the center of the page, and then layed a coordinating feather on each paper. To adhere the feathers, I simply stapled them down since I knew that my photos would hide most of the feathers. I just wanted them to poke out from the tops of the photos a bit. I then adhered my three photos using lots of pop dots.
The chipboard ring was the perfect accent to this page, along with the "he proposed" and "I said yes" chipboard pieces. I clustered them up in the upper left corner of the page.
I added a few more chipboard elements to the page, across the bottoms of the photos. I adhered the grey scalloped chipboard border using pop dots, since my photos were already raised up. Then I adhered the "engaged" chipboard piece to my photos, using pop dots as well. Lots and lots of pop dots on this page! I also tucked in the little stick pin flag with the wedding ring.
Make sure and check out the Bella Blvd blog for even more projects using this new collection. Our new products will start shipping on February 15th, so it won't be long before you can get your hands on these fun products!
