You have to head over to the blog to see the original Pinterest piece - but it was full of black and white and some pops of color... so I used that to create this page!
If you check out the pinterest piece on the Bella blog, you will see that I used the placement of the decor pieces as a sketch for my page. I do this often when coming up with backgrounds for pages, etc.
I used some teal mist and painted it onto the top area of the cardstock base to add a little color before adding my title, using a paper piece from Bella Blvd.
I tried to keep the neutral theme using mostly black and white and just a few pops of color - pink and teal.
I'll be back in a few days with a couple more projects and Cocoa Daisy November kit sneaks! Stay tuned :)

You could definitely use this file over and over again and for different purposes! Use all the squares, or even just one. Cut out the heart and use that over and over! There are endless possibilities.
Here is the page I created using a lot of the cut squares for my page. The page really came together quickly once I had all the squares cut out from patterned paper.
Lately, I have been sticking to cutting my shapes out of cardstock, but I forget how lovely simple shapes like this look cut from patterned paper.
The squares are great for layering letters and other embellishments onto. I popped my squares up with foam adhesive, but you could leave them plain and they would work just as well!
To download the cut file, just click HERE
Hope you are enjoying these cut files - I already have next month's set up to go... working on a holiday one for December next! Enjoy!!
It's the last day to enter in the giveaway here on my blog - just click HERE and leave a comment.. I'll be drawing names for a Bella Blvd prize pack!!! Lots of goodies :)

Here is my page:
I started off by selecting this shape in the Silhouette online store:
I used the shape to create my title and even the placement of my photo on my page:
I added lots of cut flowers - something I rarely do - embellished with stitching and lots of buttons and epoxy dots.
