True Beauty

Hello, today I have a layout of Morgan, using the new BoBunny collection "Penny Emporium". I also added some of the wooden BoBunny embellies that I heat embossed with bronze thick embossing powder. I also used the BoBunny stars stencil and BoBunny jewels to add some of the little details... since it's all in the details :)

Morgan graduated from 5th grade this year, and is off to middle school for next year!

"For You" card

Hi guys, today I wanted to share a card I made using an adorable stamp from ppinkydolls and the beautiful brand new "Juliet" collection by BoBunny. I also used a BoBunny die to cut the stamp out. I made this card for the ppinkydolls June challenge on their FB page - to us pink colors... well, this is as pink as I get :)

Scrap Africa Challenge!

Hello, today I'm going to share the LO I created for Scrap Africa's 

Challenge no.53 - Planes, Trains & Automobiles Mood Board

I was excited to be the guest designer this month, and this challenge was right up my alley since I have a little Dexter to scrap :)

I used BoBunny's "Souvenir" collection, the brads that went with it, and BoBunny's stars mask for the background.

A beachy BoBunny LO :)

I used the new Boardwalk collection by BoBunny to create a LO about our trip to the beach last year. I really love this beach collection - the colors, the distressed peeling paint prints and weathered wood and vintage little kids - it's totally up my alley.

Gift sets!

Hello, today I wanted to share tow gift sets I made of a gift bag and a card to match. I used the wonderful new collection "Penny Emporium" by BoBunny... I just love the vintage elements with a Steampunk flavor and the most gorgeous colors of blues and purples.

Here's the first set. I also added a little something to the insides of the cards. The cards are 4x8 - they come from a pack of card bases that I had, so they have envelopes that go with them.

And here's the second set. Again, I decorated the inside of the card and used some layered chipboard on the bag and on the card for a little detail. The intricate flourishes on the bags were made using a BoBunny die (see below for list of products).

BoBunny Supplies:
Patterned Paper: Penny Emporium
Layered Chipboard: Penny Emporium
Noteworthy: Penny Emporium
Die: Elegant Border

Somewhere in Time

The new "Heritage" collection from BoBunny has really great fall colors and images, so I used it to scrap this "vintage" pic of Morgan when she was just a toddler. She's almost 11 now, so it's been a while. I just love this sweet picture of her. I also used some BoBunny blossoms for the flowers. The flourishes are BoBunny laser cut chipboard.

Laugh and the world laughs with you...

My daughter picked out this wooden sign from Target - it was plain white. I knew it would be more her style if I embellished it a bit for her and the new "Forever Young" collection from BoBunny, with its young, fresh, fun images and colors was just perfect for it - the chipboard embellies are from this collection. I also used blue BoBunny color spray to change the color, BoBunny Pearlescents in pink for the accents, and BoBunny daisies in denim color. If you couldn't tell, my daughter's favorite color is blue.

More BoBunny cards!

As promised, today I'm sharing two more cards, using the BoBunny "Heritage" collection. This time I added a little mixed media into the mix to spice things up a bit, but still stuck to the same simple design. As with yesterday's cards, I again matched the inside of the card decor to the outside.

For the first card, I added some BoBunny bronze mist and Pearlescents on the outside, and on the inside, I echoed the flower theme. (The chipboard letters are from an older BoBunny collection - "The Avenues")

For the second card, I used one of the new BoBunny stencils to add the dimensional stars with molding paste. The inside of the card echoes the white with the subtle white flowers in the top corner.

Heritage cards

Hello, I wanted to share a couple cards I made with the new BoBunny "Heritage" collection. Please check in tomorrow as I will have two more Heritage cards to share, but taking a little bit more of a mixed media approach. The cards I'm sharing today are more in a clean and simple style, and use a kraft base so that the images from the paper sort of blend into it.

These cards are posted today on BoBunny's FB and here, I can add some more detail shots and a view of the interior.

That's all for today - I hope you liked the cards! And like I said before, tune back in tomorrow for two more in this style using some other mediums for a little bit more of an artsy effect, but still in a simple style.

"Garden Journal" Cards

Hello, I wanted to share a couple cards I made using BoBunny's "Garden Journal" collection. The colors are really soft and the images delicate and pretty, so the cards were perfect for my daughter's friends' birthdays... in fact, both cards have already been given away :)
These cards were wonderfully easy to make - I simply cut out one "row" for each card from the "Notebook" sheet from the collection and folded it in half to make the card base. Then I hand-cut the printed postcards from the "Post Card" sheet and glued them inside to create the perfect space to write the message, as well as add firmness to the base. I cut the birds out of a couple of the sheets and popped them up with foam dots, and added the words and the banner from the 12x12 sticker sheet. Each card took maybe 5 minutes, 10 at most.
Here are the two cards, along with detail views and peeks inside them:

I have a new layout to share today, using BoBunny's fabulous, fun, and vintage collection "Carnival". It has lots of vintage images from carnivals and circuses and is very funky at the same time. I thought it would be perfect for this layout of Dexter when he was 3 years old (so nearly 3 years ago now....)
I also used buttons and chipboard from the collection, and the "Adventure" is from the "Noteworthy" pack from the "Safari" collection - also a new release from BoBunny.

Paper Nest Dolls!

I have a card to share today that would be perfect for Valentine's Day. It's also on the Paper Nest Dolls blog and I'm their guest designer for the day! I can't believe it's been so many years since I first designed for them... it feels just like yesterday. I have to tell you, the stamps have only gotten more and more adorable over the years, and I was thrilled to get to color one again. The stamp is called "Heart Lollipop Avery". I used my Prismacolor pencils and the new Bo Bunny "Star-Crossed" collection.
