The Bella Blvd. blog is hosting challenges each day this week.
Monday's challenge was to use cute cuts. I rummaged through my Bella Blvd. stash and found some scraps left from the Christmas Wishes collection. Fortunately there was this tree left that I could cut out. I embellished it with some twine and jewels. I used a rub on from Art Warehouse to combine this with the Jingle Belles blog challenge.
Tuesday's challenge was to use pattern paper from 4 different collections. As I was looking through my papers, I realized that this wasn't going to be a difficult challenge at all. I loved that the colors in the different collections matched so well with each other. I used Sophisticates McIntosh for my background, Christmas Wishes Borders, Making the Team Wall of Fame, and Winter Ski Slopes. I also used chipboard from the Family Dynamics collection.
Wednesday's challenge was to use pattern paper as an embellishment. I cut strips from Christmas Wishes North Pole and Sophisticates Calendars to make borders. I used Finally Fall Apple Holder to make a pleated banner border upon which to place my title. I also used more Family Dynamics chipboard. This was another fun layout using lots of collections together.
