Thinking Outside the Box with Bella Blvd

Hi everyone! Today I'd like to challenge you to think outside the box when it comes to your themed paper collections.  And what better way for me to illustrate my idea, than with a fun little box project.  For example, I used adorable paper and embellishments from Bella Blvd's Chloe collection ... even though my project has nothing to do with kitty cats.

The box is by Graphic 45 and has a small album tucked inside. I started the project by covering the box with white card stock.  I like how pattern papers pop off a background of white so you'll see most of my albums and pages start with a white base.

I covered the sides of the box with the super cute floral pattern (Chloe: Smitten) and then layered the top with white card stock and a yellow and orange dot (Chloe: Borders).  Then the fun part ... embellishing the top of the box!

I started with the largest piece first.  I adhered the house die cut and then randomly added large die cut flowers.  I love how the Bella Pop flowers add dimension, and the epoxy hearts add a little shine! Then I used the new matte enamel dots (Cat Mix and Dog Mix) to fill in the smaller spaces.

I kept the album inside super simple by layering 3x4 white card stock with pattern paper, slipping the small pages into ten 3x4 Simple Stories page protectors, and adding binding rings.  My granddaughter's pictures are going to look so cute on those little pages!


As you can see, my project really has nothing to do with kitty cats, even though I did the whole thing with the Chloe collection! I hope I've inspired you to think outside the box and find fun ways to use your papers and embellies for everyday projects.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
