It's time for a new monthly, step-by-step, Bella Blvd project sheet! Today, on the Bella Blvd blog, we are revealing the April project sheet, which features the Max collection. I'm so glad that I have photos of my adorable daycare boys that I can use when I need to make boy layouts.
I have to admit that I wouldn't normally be drawn to the sketch patterned paper, as it's not really my style. But there was one layout specifically, from one of our Bella designers, that convinced me to embrace it and see what I could do with it.
I knew I would need a way to make my title stand out against the busy sketch patterned paper, so I cut a few large circles from both the navy blue robot patterned paper and a neutral grid patterned paper. For my title, I mixed the orange alpha stickers from the Max collection and the green chipboard alphas. I also hand cut the word "awesome" from one of the patterned papers to complete my title. Because they really are "awesome little dudes"!
I pulled out one of the diagonal striped 3x4" cards from the Candid Cards package to use for my journaling. I matted it on some green grid patterned paper to help it stand out more, machine stitching around the outside edges.
I hand cut the cute little fox from one of the 2x2" Candid Cards, and adhered him to the journaling card using pop dots. I also added the "too cool" sticker along with the fox, cutting little notches into the ends of the sticker to mimic te arrows.
I also tucked a few feathers in, under my title piece. I like that the feathers can add a bit of interest and texture, without distracting from the rest of the layout. I arranged them where I wanted them, and then stapled the ends in place. Once I adhered my title piece, using pop dots, it covered up the stapled ends of the feathers.
I finished off the page with a few of our older chipboard pieces and a star button. All in all, a pretty simple page. I do set out to make these project sheet layouts do-able. I keep in mind basic tools and supplies that any scrapper should have on hand, so that anyone can easily re-create the designs.
