MIXED MEDIA FEATURE

With the addition of our new specialty papers, Clear Cuts and Invisibles, we’ve challenged our designers to think beyond the scrapbook page and create projects of all kinds using different mediums.

 

Pencil Holder, by Laurie Schmidlin.

I love creating little boxes for pencils! I especially love to coordinate the box and decorations with the print on the pencils! For this box, I started with one of the new Invisibles papers. After creating the box, I decorated with some Color Chaos embellishments and papers.

Easter Basket & Treat Containers, by Diana Fisher.

Add something special to Easter this year with a little handmade basket. The Clear Cuts overlays are perfect for making a unique basket. Make sure to throw in some grass and candy! I added two treat containers with critter likenesses to my basket. The Simply Spring collection is too cute, and perfect for making little gift bags, tags or cards for the Easter holiday.

Easter Crayons Box, by Kathy Martin.

My favorite way to use Bella Blvd’s new Invisibles is to die cut them and with all the dies available today, there are so many options for creating some really cute projects! Also, don’t forget about those older dies you may have stashed away, like Sizzix Originals. I have one for making bread tags and using the Invisibles for these made some pretty sturdy tags. Then I used one to spruce up a bandage tin and filled it with Crayola colored pencils for Easter.
