We hope you're ready to be inspired! We are looking forward to providing you with endless inspiration during these next few weeks, with never-before-seen projects that are being featured in our CHA Smmer booth display. Our Design Team has been very busy creating oodles of project ideas with all of the new collections and products, and we are excited to finally share them with you!
“Family”, by Laura Vegas.
I thought the "Welcome to my life" card would be fun to use with this photo of my friend's family. I pulled out several sheets of coordinating High Five alpha stickers, and used the mini alphas to coordinate the descriptions on the pie chart breakdown. I love that so many of the colors in the Bella products carry over from collection to collection. I was able to use the "Family" title from an older Ciao Chip chipboard set, and the colors matched the new Daily Chevies collection colors perfectly.

“Our Loves”, by Laura Vegas.
I used two different colors of the large chevron patterned paper for this layout. Some pink on one side for the girls, and some orange on the other side for their baby brother. I added a coordinating feather to either side as well, and added a strip of the heart patterned paper down the center to seperate the two sides of the page.

“Big Tex”, by Diane Payne.
I created a patchwork grid background using various sized squares of the Daily Chevies to highlight this fun photo of my kids posing with Big Tex, the famous icon of the Texas State Fair. I accented the page with the Sophisticates stars, which coordinate with the star patterned paper. To complete the layout I added the speech bubble with Big Tex greeting that can be heard when Big Tex is talking.

"You Are The World" card, by Becky Williams.
I kept the background for this card simple, adding just a couple of chevron stripes from the Daily Chevies collection. I tend to make cards that are more feminine so by keeping this simple with the green and blue tones I was able to create one with a masculine feel.
Daily Chevies: Gulf, Pickle Juice, We Are Family Bookplates
“You Ampersand Me” card, by Laura Vegas.
The 3x4 and 4x6 cards from the Daily Details patterned paper are perfect for cards. I choose a 4x6 card, and trimmed it slightly to fit the front of my card, but still allowing me to add a small strip of black star paper along the top and bottom. I added a few embellishments to finish off this simple card.
Daily Chevies: Chevy Carrot, Chevy Bell Pepper, Chevy Pickle Juice, Gulf Arrows; Button Market: Feminine Mix; Designer Tape: Ice Stripe, Red Dot, Yellow Chevron
“Always Believe” card, by Shellye McDaniel.
I widened the speech bubble on this card by sketching in a pencil line onto a white cardstock and then machine-stitching around the edge. This could easily be turned into a masculine card by omitting the ribbon bow and adding a mustache embellishment in its place!
