Love That Smile: Bella Blvd Layout

Over on the Bella blog today, myself along with a few other designers, are showing off some sweet pages using the new crochet hearts!  I, myself, am in love with Bella's new line of Crochet Hearts. The texture and color palette of the whole collection is just divine. I had so much fun incorporating them into this page.

Supplies used: Bella Blvd - Love and Marriage: Esther Fleming Floral, May Eighteenth, Turner Hall Ballroom, Cute Cuts, Alpha + Bits; Engaged at Last: Engagement Chipboard Icons, Bachelor/ette Chipboard Icons; Miniatures; Sand & Surf: Paradise; Kiss Me: Love Notes; Finally Fall: Borders; Crochet Hearts: Orange, Pickle Juice, Saltwater, Scallop; Designer Tape: 12mm Combo Pack; High Five Alphabet Stickers: Piggy-Punch; Bazzill cardstock, EK Sucess large scallop border punch, American Crafts button, crochet thread, machine stitching, Computer font - Veteran Typewriter.
They proved to be the perfect monochromatic embellishment to add to many of my patterned banner strips, behind my focal photos.
I accented a Scallop Crochet Heart with a chipboard leaf and heart, to add a pop of color and bring focus to my title and journaling block.
I even 'hid' the beginning part of my title in this little area at the top of the page.  Again, it creates a subtle, but fun monochromatic look, by layering the like-colored chipboard letters over the patterned papers.

I am certain that you will see me sneaking these fun new dimensional embellishments onto my latest scrapbook pages over and over again!
Hope you'll pop on over to the Bella blog and see what beautiful creations the other designers have made with the crochet hearts!


  1. Love the crochet hearts and the soft color palette! Sweet layout.

    1. Aw, thanks Patti! This was a fun page to put together! Totally pulled the color palette from Emme's shirt, and I was lucky to have lots of Bella papers and hearts to match!
