Go Chevron with Edgy Accents!

One of the hottest trends this year is chevron. A chevron pattern adds a bold and graphical splash in home decor, clothing, and scrapbook pages. Look around - you'll spot it everywhere this year including rugs, walls, pillows, skirts and sweaters, too!

Here's just a few examples where chevron adds just the right touch to make a look go from great to fabulous!

You can use this wonderful pattern on your scrapbook pages and cards, too. Our latest release, "Edgy Accents" includes a small and larger image that work great for creating chevron patterns.

Just released - "Edgy Accents" for scrapbookers and
cardmakers, too!


Take basic cardstock and turn it into designer pattern paper simply by stamping a consistent, repetitive pattern on your page. Here's a few designs I recently created with this fun pattern. What I love is that it is gender neutral -it works great for feminine and masculine designs.

To make the scrapbook page, I created a chevron pattern using
Pigment White ink on our BHC Tiki Hut 12" X 12" paper.  I also
used the images to create the design strips
to complement the background design.

Make a pocket card using the smaller Chevron pattern from the set.
Add extra touches using "All in Toile" and "Tag You're It!" stamp sets.

Have fun with these images. Create grasses and landscapes.
Dress up an egg for Easter This cards features
the bunny from "Bunny Hop"!
Create a background for a simple embellishment such as this
glitter chipboard letter. I added BHC Sky View ribbon and
a few aquamarine rhinestones for extra bling!
Add stitching lines and other touches to turn this pattern into beautiful treasures!

Have fun with chevron. It's a bold and lively design to shake up any project! Smiles, Bobbi

  2. Oh wow! These project ideas are just fabulous! This chevron I could probably do. Several years ago, my grandmother taught me how to crochet - and for the most part, it was pretty successful with much practice. Well I attempted a chevron pattern and by the time I got done with it... let's just say it was a huge disaster! LOL These are fun.
