Monthly Life Album

In keeping with the spirit of project life, I've created a 
"monthly life" scrapbook album/journal using Bella Blvd's new

This sheet of Daily Chevies double-sided paper was my inspiration:
 You can preview the entire collection on the blog --here--

With all of the ‘collage’ making software available today, I thought this album would be
 a fun way to showcase a small collage (or single) photo that reflects the highlights of each month.
I pulled various seasonal components from new and previous Bella Blvd collections.
The “Daily Chevies” cut-out cards featuring each month of the year were the inspiration for
creating this type of album. These cards are also perfect for your 3X4 page protector sheets too!

 If you are a collector of Bella Blvd goodies then this is a great opportunity to mix & match
from previous collections, as well as new...that's one of the beauties of Bella Blvd!

To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
