I have a pocket page celebrating National Farm Animal day up on the Bella Blvd blog today! Jump over there to check out all the details of this cute little pocket page! This one features these cute photos of my son playing with a pretty red spigot on the farm! Of all the things to […]
I’ve recently been eye-ing all the beautiful embroidery thread creations on Pinterest, and I’m especially obsessed with the embroidered hair! I just couldn’t help but add a little pizazz to this gorgeous mermaid from the Bella Blvd Secrets of the Sea collection.
I knew I wanted to add some really long dark braids to the pretty little lady, but she already had a top bun. I went about cutting off her pretty little bun to make room for some long locks!
After removing her bun, I began by stitching on the hair on the top of the head, matching the pattern that was illustrated on the ephemera. I finished stitching at the bottom of each corner of her head to string several strands below her ears for those long brads!
I left one side open so that it appear as if she was still braiding, since her hand was in the perfect position. Isn’t she just the cutest?!
I added her to my Bible page along with a few pieces of other ephemera, alphas, and some ciao chips. It was a super simply page, but I wanted that lovely little mermaid to do all the talking!
Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope you’re inspired to add a little flair to your favorite ephemera!
As yesterday was National Random Act of Kindness Day, I thought I’d share these two kind cards that I created with some of my favorite Bella Blvd products!
I wanted these cards to be broadly themed, so that I could give them to friends just because.
I pulled out my stash of Acrylic Words for these cards, because I wanted my sentiment to pop! It’s amazing how many uses those acrylic words have in creating! I’m not sure I lived before they were a part of my stash.
I also put my Wish Big Girl Collection to good use with the amazing florals in the collection. I love the way those large florals add such a punch to any project! Lastly I added some Bella Wonky Alphas to finish out my sentiments.
I’m excited to send these cards to a couple of wonderful friends who deserve to have their day made everyday! What a special blessing they are to me!
