Doodlebug "Project Life" Spread- 4th of July

Did you know Doodlebug makes divided page protectors and Simply Put 4x6 cards for all your "Project Life"-type projects?  They have them for all their newest collections and they make scrapbooking so fast and easy.

I used the Stars and Stripes collection on this spread, and the stickers, twine and star jewels add so much to the layout.

just add a card, embellish a bit with a few little things, and you're done!

Bella Blvd CHA Fabric Project! Witch Dress and Hat!

I have one more project for you that I created for Bella Blvd's CHA Trade Show booth.
Bella Blvd asked me to create some fabric projects using their newest fabric collection- Too Cute To Spook.

I sent them some other items, too, but this was my favorite fabric project!

Isn't she the cutest?  I mean, really!
I wanted to make my daughter a witch dress she could wear for our annual "Witches Nite Out" event we do here in Salt Lake City, Utah.  It's tradition for hundreds of women to dress up and attend this two night event, eat treats, dance and shop.  Up to this point, it's just been my mom, aunts, sister, and friends, but this year I've got to bring the newest, cutest witch- my daughter :)

The dresses at Witches Nite Out are elaborate, with bussles and trains and trim and lights and yards and yards of fabric.  This dress is not quite as elaborate, and I actually used parts of a princess dress pattern for parts of it.  I made it long enough to touch the ground, and then I added sleeves, extra bussels, and lots and lots of extra fabric, trim and lots of tulle underneath. 

The hats are what are really over-the-top.  This one is less elaborate but perfect for a first-time little girl's hat.  To make the rose I used my ruffler foot (or you could just gather a long strip of fabric) and rolled it into a rose shape and tucked the edges under.  The feathers and embellishments were hot glued rather than sewn onto the hat.

Supply List (dress):

Too Cute To Spook fabrics by Bella Blvd for Riley Blake Fabrics
3" wide black gathered lace trim
Hook & Eyes clasps for back of dress
Elastic for sleeves
Interfacing for waistband
Tulle skirt (underneath)
Ribbon (green for bodice)
Ribbon trim (orange- top of bodice- Doodlebug Design)
McCall's M6619 (used parts of the pattern)

Supply List (hat):

Too Cute To Spook fabrics by Bella Blvd for Riley Blake Fabrics
Bella Blvd Feathers: Orange
Bella Blvd Feathers: Pickle Juice
Bella Blvd Feathers: Oreo-Black
Bella Blvd Feathers: Surf N' Turf
Peltex (used instead of interfacing to make the hat stiff enough to stand on its own)
Hot glue gun (to attach bow, "rose" and feathers)
McCall's M5494 (hat only- XS size, shortened the top of the hat by 4 inches)

Thanks for visiting and spending the week with me seeing all the new CHA goodies coming out!
Hope you enjoyed my projects!

*NEW Bella Blvd* Trick or Treat Collection + A Layout

Day Three.... HALLOWEEN!!!
My favorite holiday of the year!!!

It was HARD to pick just one item as my favorite from this collection.
I'm dying over the whole thing!  It's awesome!

And here's a layout I created with this collection for CHA.
It also shows you photos of another project I created for CHA that I'll show you Saturday. :)

Most of the elements in the top left corner are from the new Paper Pieces die cut packs!  So cute and so easy!  The "Spooky Style" tag is also a Paper Pieces die cut. 

I machine stitched along the star and around several of the cardstock pieces, and I layered die cuts and stickers and Crochet Hearts (one of my favorite Bella Blvd embellishments).  And there's another Everyday Bits Arrow sticker!

I love Bella Blvd's designer tapes too!  This one's Jail Bird.

And the buttons are Fruit Punch Buttons- also by Bella Blvd.

See you tomorrow for more fun!
