Best Creation-Summer CHA Projects

   Happy Summer CHA week everyone. I wasn't able to make it this time, but fortunate to be designing projects for the Best Creation booth, so make sure to check out their new lines for Fall and Christmas of 2011! They are pretty darn fantastic!

 For my projects I used the new Hello Fall collection and Mom's Kitchen collection. First up are a frame and mini album showcasing the fun ways you can use the papers of the Hello Fall collection.

"First Sight" frame
The chipboard frame is from Maya Road and
covered with papers from "Hello Fall"

 I am in love with spools, especially wooden ones
that are vintage. Wrapping paper, trim and adding embellishments
over them is fun! The spools are not only decorative, but also hold up the chipboard panel.

"Home Decor" Mini Album
 This Punky Sprouts album has a fun combo of canvas, acrylic and chipboard pages. The cover page is acrylic and offers a little "sneak peak" of the pages inside.

I love rub on's on transparent surfaces

Trimming parts of a patterned paper that you like and adding them to a page creates a strong focal point

I love adding little areas of embellishment goodness.

Punches of color in the buttons and letters can anchor a color scheme. 

Don't be afraid to use and mix punches when combining various patterned papers.

I love making DIY embellishments. This is a flower rolled from lace with a paper leaf.

I really enjoying just adding border stickers, punched shapes and random stitching.

"Recipe" collection
 Did you know that Best Creation makes transparency sheets!? Way cool. I stitched two together to make a pocket for recipe cards from the new Mom's Kitchen collection.

 Trim your patterned paper recipe cards to fit inside

"Made with Love" Card
I like trimming nostalgic images like a mix master and adding fun scalloped edges with a border punch. The gingham paper is too perfect!

Miniature spools wrapped in patterned paper make a fun little

   Now for some other projects that will be at the Best Creation booth using fun papers from June's Loop's and Scoops collection

"Ticket to Ride" Pop-Up Card
 This line of paper was perfect for a pop up card. 

When opened the train pops up in front of the roller coaster. One loop of the coaster and some fireworks "pop" with some foam tape.

Just cut slits on the inside of the paper, fold with the crease of the card and against, and attach what ever you want to pop up

"Graduation" Banner
Making a banner doesn't just need to include triangle shapes, try taking apart a chipboard album and use it! I used an album from Maya Road 

Well that's it for me, stay tuned for more projects from me this week, and have fun at CHA!
