We are back at it on the Bella Blvd blog this week, sharing more and more of our Winter CHA booth projects using the new collections and embellishments. Today we're sharing projects that showcased the new crochet hearts.
Since we have limited amounts of the new products to work with for CHA projects, we don't always get all of the new stuff, but a mixed sampling of the new stuff. I only received a handful of colors of the crochet hearts to work with. I had the red, aqua, and grey hearts out and I thought about this old photo of Sarah. It's one of my all time favorite photos of her. I love her adorable pigtails, her big brown eyes, and that little grin that usually means she's up to no good!
I decided to make a wide border going down the side of the page. I picked out coordinating colors of the new Freestyle Sophisticates patterned paper, using the hand drawn chevron side of the paper. I cut small squares from the papers an machine stitched around each square before adhering them to the page.
After adhering down all of the squares, I adhered either a coordinating crochet heart or a threaded button to the center of each paper.
I used a sheet of black ruled patterned paper from the Engaged At Last collection as the background paper on this layout. I love how the other colors really stand out against the black. I also picked out some coordinating feathers to add to the page, above my photo.
I've mentioned it before, but a great way to adhere the feathers is to staple them to the page, making sure the staples will be hidden. I adhered my photo using pop dots, so it was easy to "tuck" my feathers behind the photo.
Stop by the Bella Blvd blog to see more projects featuring the new crochet hearts. And stay tuned, as I have even more layouts to share this week.
