Bella BLVD - Hush Little Baby Layout and card set by Rachel Lowe:
Happy Monday everyone, Rachel here again and this week I have a layout and card set using the oh so cute Bella BLVD Sweet Baby Girl collection.
This photo is of my daughter leaving hospital in her 'going home' outfit (a very cute pink Peter Rabbit outfit with floral detail), in keeping with her outfit I decided to create a 'floral' layout.
I used a flower punch to create the larger lavender flower, layering and using foam tape to give it more height.
I then picked out the flower die cuts , as you will see I have sewn the stems of the three flower die cuts, this added more texture to the layout and it assists in drawing your eye to the feature.
I am sure you have noticed the new trend of paper fringes, I love them and again I have used it on my layout. They are easy to make, on this layout I cut a 1 inch strip, on the reverse I drew a line in pencil in the centre and then cut to this line all the way along. This ensures your fringe is even, you can of course create any sized fringe or create a border with multiple paper fringes.
I have foam taped the die cut word 'love' and the adorable hedgehog.
I them chose the stickers that were relevant to this memory/photo.
I finished this layout with randomly adding some enamel dots.
Sewn stems create texture and visual interest.
This border has multiple layers and finished off with a hand punched flower.
All elements here are foam taped and finished off with enamel dots.
As I used white as my background on both layouts created using this collection I had lots of die cuts, stickers and paper left over and I so I created some cards and two small gift tags. I love having a 'card' box with ready made cards for any occasion and it is budget friendly.
Here are some close up photos.
Here you will see I have used the 2Crafty heart clumps chipboard which I painted in white. How cute does it look on this card!
I love to sew on cards as it adds more texture and visual interest.
I have foam taped the die cuts to create a 3D effect.
I created a double paper fringe on the below card.
I have also added enamel dots to further add visual interest.
Gift tags are a great way to use up your left overs and add a personal touch to your gift wrapping.
This collection is just lovely (there is also a boy version) for layouts, cards or even a mini album.
Thank you for stopping by and next week I have a boy themed layout using Kaisercraft Sea Breeze with a 2Crafty feature.
