Today, over on the Bella Blvd blog, we're releasing the monthly project sheet for April, which features the new Simply Spring collection and our new Bella Bows. I used a few photos my cousin's cute kiddos, Zachary and Madison, as I knew they would match perfectly.
I picked out several sheets of patterned paper and cut blocks from each in varying sizes. I knew that I wanted to do 3 vertical rows of paper on the page, but I didn't want the pieces to line up exactly the same on each side.
For the center piece, I ended up using a full 12" piece of the pink woodgrain patterned paper, and then layered a 12" piece of the cloud Clear Cut transparency directly over it. I distressed the edges of all of my patterned papers, and machine stitched around the edges before adhering any of them to the page.
I adhered my two photos to the center of the page using pop dots, and then arranged my title underneath. I used the "sunshine" letters from the Chipboard Icons sheet, and then used some of the white Amorie chipboard alphas to complete my title.
I then embellished the page with lots of chipboard pieces, from several of the chipboard sheets. I used the Simply Spring chipboard icons, the WhatNots chipboard, the Symbols chipboard, and the Flowers & Clouds chipboard.
And for the first time, I used a few of the new Bella Bows. I have to be honest, I'm really not a big bow person, so I haven't used these before. But I think the white ones looked really cute on here. I also added some of our new enamel dots to finish of the page.
