Welcome to the Bella Beach House! Plus 3 August Bella Kits and a New DT Bella

Today is the reveal of the first Bella Creations embellishment kit: Bella Beach House. I was assigned to the Tres Chic challenge but I also used the Bella Muse challenge image so I'm giving you information on both August challenges. You have until September 5 to upload your challenge entries in the Forum at Bella Creations.

Here is my design team layout I made using paper from my stash (Webster's Pages Seaside Retreat) which I sprayed with Ranger Perfect Pearls Mists in Sunflower Sparkle. I then layered with some Graphic 45 On the Boardwalk papers including the postcard from Lila and Lola who were writing from Wildwood (Coney Island).  Then I had great fun sorting and choosing embellishments from the Bella Beach House kit.  There was so much to choose from!   You'll be seeing a lot more projects with the items in the kit.

#1 Tres Chic Challenge: each month a different style:  August brings us a detail oriented style.
Elements from the Bella Beach House August ephemera kit: seam binding, stick pins, glitter, crepe paper, book page.
The water is the glitter; my shoreline is the seam binding. The tickets are a Bella kit exclusive.
Please see the Tres Chic challenge in the Forum for additional challenge requirements.

I also used from the kit the shells, flowers, and net.

I made a crepe paper flower and edged it with Ranger Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.
