All this week, we will continue to provide you with endless inspiration with never-before-seen projects that were featured in our CHA Winter booth display. Our Creative 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!
“A Bushel and a Peck”, by Heather Leopard.
What's black and white with pops of color all over? This layout, that's what! While I love the shapes of the Invisibles and how they can really dress up a project with the fun scallops, I focused more showing you how I've used it for the sole purpose as a fun see though pattern on your layout. To create this layout, I thought about my title and photo first and determined how much space I would need to a long title with some larger alphas wrapped around each of the circles. I also had to take into account that I would need to trim the white background around the edges so it would fit inside the black and white pattern paper border. Once I had those measurements, I cut three different sized circles using my die cut machine and then stitched the Invisibles to the back of the cuts. The title is a combo of Tiny Text alphas, letters from the chipboard icons and sticker alphas. By mixing my alphas, I was able to fit a rather long quote on the page without overwhelming the layout and it really added some nice variety to make it more pleasing to the eye. One thing I love so much about the Tiny Text Alphas is that you can add a longer title, you can add a sub-title or you can even use it in your journaling.

“Everyday”, by Jennie McGarvey.
It's not every day you can create a page with a calendar page as a base. Since this awesome Invisibles page can be the base -- why not make it the background? It was fun to pair it with these sweet photos -- they are perfect together.

“Grow, Create, Love”, by Wendy Antenucci.
I was drawn to the bold strips of the Invisible paper that became the home to my layout about my daughter. The design of the page makes it a perfect stand-alone background that is strong enough to be displayed as a home decor piece. I chose the bold colors of the She Blooms collection to complement the bold stripes of the Invisibles. I matted my photo area on the white scripty piece to add a calm spot in all the color. I chose a few bold pieces to layer with my photo and lots of the floral embellishments to decorate my layout. I also matted my picture with a postcard with the fun saying of blessings by mail. For a few final touches I used the Blessings Invisible to add in a sentiment, "Count your blessings" on the side of my picture. I also cut a few of the scallops to add behind my photo block as a final element and to transition from my photo block to the bold stripes.

“Happy Easter” card, by Heather Leopard.
How adorable is this little squirrel? My daughter saw her when I was looking through all the new collections and fell in love with her so I decided she'd be perfect for her Easter card. To create this, I used the Invisibles Fresh Air to create a sky background. I added a green grass border from the sticker sheet and then created a little scene with the tree (where the squirrel lives), the Easter basket sentiment and then the cute little squirrel. I can't wait to give this to her!

I just love this sheet of Invisibles! I mean, who doesn't love the repeating days of the week? It's perfect for scrapbooking, anyone knows that. But, how about letting your recipient you are sending this message for each day of the week? Perfect!
