Yesterday, on the Bella Blvd blog, we shared a ton of layouts and cards using the new Love And Marriage collection. Here's one of the layouts I made with this collection for the booth at CHA.
Once again, I borrowed some photos from my talented friend Krista. The truth is, I used her photos on five of the eleven layouts I made for CHA. I'm very grateful that she's so willing to share with me (and in return, she gets to keep any layouts I get back!), because aren't these gorgeous photos?
I pieced several border strips, pieces of patterned paper, and a border sticker together to create the base of my page. I love the touches of black in this collection as it really ties in so nicely with wedding photos. The black ruled patterned paper has aqua lines mixed in, and it's one of my favorites.
After I had all of my paper pieced together, I machine stitched along all of them. I knew that I wanted to use the pink chipboard flower, and hand cut the yellow and aqua flower from the Cute Cuts patterned paper. I think they make a really cute cluster with the coordinating threaded buttons on each flower.
I picked out the yellow and aqua feathers to add along with the flowers. To adhere the feathers I simpy stapled down the bottom ends of the feathers, since I knew the flowers would cover that area. Then I adhered my flowers using pop dots right over where my staples were.
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!
