Focus on the Square

I totally missed the new Monday Morning Challenge at Bella Blvd
so here we go!

"Each Monday we will offer up a challenge, and share with you our designers take 
on that challenge. Today we are focusing on the square. Whether it's square elements,
 square embellishments, or square photos, we challenged our designers to focus on 
the square as they created their layouts and cards." --Laura Vegas, Bella Blvd 

I will admit that this was more of a challenge for me than I thought!  
But here they are...my two "Focus on the Square" cards:

After cutting two different sizes of squares, I cut each set into triangles and then pieced
 them back together with alternating patterns! I die-cut one of the journal card sentiments
 into a square and added it with foam dots. Because the journal card included a cluster of
 strawberries, I decided to keep with that motif and created a cute crochet heart strawberry. 
Just add cut out leaves, a stem and small pearls.

Supplies:Play Date: Today Is Beautiful, Chasing Rainbows, Daily Details, Alpha+Bits; 
Crochet Hearts: McIntosh

 I used one of the borders from the Borders paper as the focus for this card.
 I cut four 1.75" tiles and layered them onto a mat of patterned paper. Two of the squares 
were added with foam dots, which gave a nice 3-D effect. I cut the tabs sticker into a
 square and added it to the center point of the design.

Supplies:Snapshots: Pajama Day, Borders, Tabs, Captions; High Five Alpha Stickers: Gulf; 
Button Market: Gulf Squares; Designer Tape: Pickle Juice Stripe

 More square inspiration on the Bella Blog :)  See you tomorrow!
