When I saw the adorable sand castle pieces in the Sand & Surf collection I
knew it would be perfect to document the photo of my son making sand turtles on
our trip to Maui.

“Pool Side”, by Sheri Feypel.
This layout is one of my favorites that
I created for CHA! I love the new Sand & Surf collection. The colors are
vibrant and playful and pair perfectly with my silly Instagram photo of my son
and his friend being funny at the pool. And who knew Feathers would be so fun
to add to a project, new obsession coming on, maybe? I'll keep you posted on
that. I had a lot of fun adding layers of Designer Tape, Chipboard and stickers
to this layout. I added a little banner in the top corner using Chipboard and
Miniature Stickers to sort of mock a clothes line. A little side note, I
attached my feathers with a few glue dots in case you are wondering how you
were going to attach them to your projects cause I was wondering the same :)

And Away”, by Katherine McElvain.
have been wanting to scrapbook this picture of my daughter's first time getting
up on water skies for a while now, and the Sand and Surf line with its colors
and arrows was the perfect fit. I wanted the layout to be mostly neutral. with
a pop of color to coordinate with the color photo. I added the pink arrow strip
and the yellow suns from the borders paper, and some Mcintosh feathers to pick
up the color of her life jacket. After I had the layout all put together I
realized I didn't have room for journaling, so I wrote the story of the day on
one of the black and white photos. And I kept the embellishments simple by
adding some clouds and tape.

Friends" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
Don't you just love all the
fun, bright colors in this line!? And I love the flowers in this line too! The
biggest flower in the middle is from the sheet of "Just Write Journaling
Stickers". I also cut a couple flowers from the "Cute Cuts"
sheet. I used a lot of foam adhesive on this card to add some dimension to the
flowers and the centers of the flowers. Thanks for looking!

“Wish You Were Here” card, by Laurie
I love to create scenes using Bella patterned paper! Here, I created a beach
scene using many different Sand & Surf papers. The flower, sentiment, and
arrow are all stamped images form the new Sand & Surf Cling stamp set.

“Go See Do” mini albums, by Malika
I wanted to make a mini album using the
new Sand & Surf collection to hold our beach holiday pictures. To hold the
album together, I used Bella's Designer Tapes and then machine stitched on top
to be sure that the tape would stay held down. I absolutely loved the look
of the bright colored tapes as the binding, but found that I couldn't add too
many bulky embellishments. Instead of lots of chipboard and buttons, I
embellished with Designer Tapes to make a pocket, hold pictures down, make
banners tabs and borders. I was still able to add the odd chipboard pieces
without the mini album getting too big. I love the end result and encourage you
to try binding something with Bella's Designer Tapes!
