"Engaged And So In Love", by Laura Vegas.
I love the happy mix of colors in this new collection. I pulled out some of the black pieces of patterned paper and embellishments to alongside my photos, which were printed in black and white. The black adds a nice strong contrast to the brighter colors, and allows them to really "pop" off the page. I machine stitched around my blocks of patterned paper, which were layered together with my photos and chipboard pieces using lots and lots of pop dots. I even tucked in a few coordinating feathers to soften the page.

“We Are Engaged”, by Megan Klauer.
This collection is just fun! It's all about how it all begins; the proposal, setting the date, all the fun planning. The colors and designs are right on trend. So much fun to work with!

"Showered With Love", by Jenny Evans.
My wedding shower photos went wonderfully with the new Engaged At Last collection! The chipboard pieces and flags are the perfect embellishments, and made this layout so easy to put together! One of my favorite papers is Bridal Shower (presents pattern), and I was able to give it a focal point on the layout. Some finishing touches were one of the new Crochet Hearts and some of the new Designer Tapes.

“The Bride’s Maids”, by Jennifer Chapin.
For this layout, I went with a pink and black theme to scrap some pictures of my sister’s bachelorette party. The Punch feathers were the perfect accent! I like to print my photos at 3.5”x5” so I can use a few photos on the page and still have room for lots of embellishments.

“Love, Love, Love”, by Malika Kelly.
I really wanted to use this heart cut file on my Cameo and I was determined to use some bits of the Engaged At Last patterned papers to back the occasional cut out heart. This piece became the mat for my picture. I then went on to make a banner with some of the coordinating Designer Tapes. Folding each piece of tape in half, made it not sticky on the back and then I could easily cut in to the bottom of each piece to make my banner. These feathers made the perfect place to cluster some embellishments. I can see myself using these feathers in many of my layouts to come! I added the two little cut out people to the bottom left corner of my layout. Using the black and white patterned paper helped tie in my black and white photo.

"Bride to Be" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
How fun is this line!?! I can't think of another line like this one that is so perfect for things beyond the wedding like bridal showers and the bachelor & bachelorette parties! I love it!! This is just a fun congratulatory card to send to the soon-to-be bride. You can't go wrong with a sassy pink & black color scheme! Thanks for looking!

“Cheers" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
I really wanted to try to make a manly card with the "Engaged at Last" line. Cards for guys can be tricky! There are a great mix of colors and patterns in this new line-some are girly but there are some that are masculine too. It's not just full of different shades of pink! I cut the beer glasses out of the sheet of "Bachelor Extras" to use as embellishments for the card. Bella's tapes are also great to add some interest to the card while still keeping it from being too girly. FYI: the yellow background paper is from the "Borders" sheet in the "Sand and Surf" line...works great with the masculine stuff in the "Engaged at Last" line!

“Bachelor Party” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
I just love that there are masculine papers/elements included in many Bella collections! For this Bachelor Party card, I used some of the new Engaged At Last papers, Ciao Chip Bachelor/ette Icons, and a Bachelor Flag.
