We hope you're ready to be inspired! We are back this week, providing you with endless inspiration with never-before-seen projects that were featured in our CHA Winter 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!
“Super Star”, by Lisa Dickinson.
Because there were so many great patterns in this collection, I wanted to include as many as possible! To do that, I used white borders around the star shapes to help separate the patterns and keep the look clean and crisp. I also used vellum circles under the star clusters to unify the groupings. The alphabet Clear Cut layered over the blue background adds another layer of texture and helps reinforce my school theme.

“Adventure”, by Brook Stewart.
We just started camping with some friends this last summer, so I was thrilled to see a camping line in the new Bella Blvd line-up! I love the new invisibles and wanted to do something fun with this cute tree patterned one. I traced the outline of the invisible shape onto the green paper and cut it out. Then I cut off a section from both pieces, leaving the green side a little larger. I attached them with my regular adhesive so that they lined up evenly and added a border strip over the seam so it doesn’t show. Then I just layered everything else on top!

“Seriously Cute”, by Brook Stewart.
I ADORE the new Clear Cuts Transparencies. Especially because they are polka dots and come in SO many colors! I love the different combinations you can make just making strips side by side. I found 5 colors that matched these photos of my girl in her winter gear out in the snow, cut them into 2 inch strips and instantly had an amazing background. Paired with the basic colors of the Color Chaos line, you cannot go wrong!

“Keep the Wild In You” treat box, by Laurie Schmidlin.
For this treat box, I die cut the box shape using a metal die and the new Oreo Confetti Clear Cut sheet. I decorated it using a piece of Gulf Strandz (from the Color Chaos Collection) and a coordinating Just Write Journaling Sticker.

Pink Flower treat box, by Laurie Schmidlin.
The new Clear Cuts are so easy to work with! They cut like butter and crease so easily, making them perfect for creating treat boxes! I die cut the box shape out of the Punch Confetti Clear Cut sheet and then used a clear, strong adhesive to glue it together. I decorated it using a piece of Punch Strands paper (from the new Color Chaos collection) and a Just Write Journaling Sticker.

Spring Carrot treat box, by Laurie Schmidlin.
Nothing says spring like Jelly beans! And what cuter way to package them than with some of the new Clear Cuts sheets, giving everyone a peek at what’s inside? I cut out the carrot shaped box and adhered it together using some strong, clear glue. I added a piece of white cardstock to the bottom of the carrot box. I found that it helped the pretty orange dots stand out a bit more. I decorated the box using items from the Simply Spring collection.
