I kind of feel like I've been sharing my Bella Blvd projects with you forever. Lol. As much as I LOVE Bella (and I really, really do!), I do want to switch over to some other things here as well. Turns out, this is my last CHA layout to share. I must have lost track, since I thought for sure I had more than one left.
And out of the 9 layouts I created for CHA, this was the one and only layout that I used my own photo on. I cannot thank my friend Krista enough for letting me scrap her gorgeous photos of her adorable family! There are just times that I find myself at the bottom of my photo piles for certain things, and some fresh and fun photos are more inspiring than turning to my same ole' photos I've used before. And even though I have used this photo of my girls from Halloween a few years ago, I knew I had to use it on at least one of my layouts with the new Trick or Treat collection.
I love a good Halloween collection that works in colors other than just black and orange, and I love that Bella has aqua in the mix. It worked perfectly with this photo, since my girls had aqua in their costumes.
There were so many different patterned papers that I wanted to use on this layout, so I choose four main papers and randomly cut blocks of varying sizes. No ryhme or reason to the sizes. Just very random cuts into squares or rectangles.
Then I matted my photo onto the white grid patterned paper, and started layering all of the other patterned paper pieces around the photo. I also had the "Hello Halloween" card that I cut from the Daily Details paper to use for my title, and layered that in next to the photo.
I added the large yellow star die cut from the new Paper Pieces die cut pack, and a few stickers from the different sticker sheets that go with the collection. The orange border stickers are from the Alpha+Bits sticker sheets. I did pull those from two different sheets of stickers, since each sheet only has one of each border. Then I finished off the page with lots of threaded buttons.
And a quick Halloween card as well. This one was super simple. The "frightful" piece is a die cut from the Paper Pieces die cut pack, and has the cut out heart in the bottom corner. I backed that with a punched circle of black dotted paper, and then pop dotted the entire thing on the right side of the card.
The half circles you see were punched from the large polka dot patterned paper. I love using that sheet to punch out the circles, since they all coordinate with the papers, and are an easy way to add bits of additional color here and there. A one inch circle punch works perfectly. I cut those circles in half, and adhered them as a "border" of sorts in the center of the card.
