Beautiful Life with BoBunny and Soiree

Greetings and welcome to the blog today! I was recently up on the BoBunny Blog with a project featuring some of the new release products.  The gorgeous Soiree collection as well as a few new colors of our DoubleDot, Whisper and French Vanilla.

This is one of those pages that came together so easily because all the colors coordinated so nicely with the photo.

My page for you today features the brand new Soiree collection and also our new French Vanilla Double Dot used in my border die cuts and the new Whisper Double Dot as part of my photo mat.
 
Photo story here... my sweet boys were playing in the local craft store when I was shopping for a paper holder for my new BoBunny goodies. When I turned around, this was what they had done to entertain themselves.

I started this page by choosing the Boutique paper that coordinated with my photo colors. For a soft and pretty feel, I brushed Pearlescents in Chocolate, Blush and Island Mist along the border using a brush. Next I used a bit of water on my finger and moistened the edges and worked them all the way around the border creating an aged appearance.
 
Next, I used the Stickable Stencils with Glitter Paste and Molding Paste and let dry, then sprinkled drops of Glimmer Spray
 
You will see a few of our new dies used on the page the Ornate Doilies layered under the right side of my photo along with Branch Out and the Love Squared on top.

January BoBunny Inspiration

Happy Friday crafty peeps!  I have been having such a great time creating with the brand new collections by BoBunny this past week.

One of my good friends hosted a crafty gathering at her home last weekend and I was in the mood to do a bit of art journaling. For this I used the new "Believe" collection which is not only uplifting in color and pattern but in sentiment and embellishment accents as well.

To begin, I used white gesso to coat the journal pages and then applied Glimmer Spray in Mint, Sugar, Gold and of course a touch of Frost. I wanted the background to coordinate with the colors in the papers I selected.


For this side, you will see I applied some Silver Foil Transfers in the dot pattern to coordinate with my background paper. The background frame and "Love One Another" are cut from the "Glory" patterned paper. The "Faith" scallop sentiment was cut from the "Worship" patterned paper.


For the right side I first used our new cloud pattern Summertime Stickable Stencils along with some Sugar Glitter Paste. I did a bit more cutting papers and layered the elements. 

I am so grateful that BoBunny came out with this line, it is so great to have a faith based collection that is bright and cheerful and so inspiring!

Patterned Paper: Blessed, Faith, Glory, Radiance and Worship / Believe

Vibrant Christmas Colors with BoBunny

Friday greetings to you!

I have a fun BoBunny page to share with you today featuring the vibrant "Dear Santa" collection. Since I had printed a few photos of Christmas this year that I wanted to be sure to scrapbook, these papers were perfect for them!


Since I had multiple photos I went with a grid design.


I used a four inch square and a three inch square. I scored them on either side of the middle and used that as my folding line. Once I folded the square "packages", I stitched the borders. I layered them in an offset fashion to look like a gift. I placed my chipboard Santa on top.

You will also notice that I embellished my buttons with the epoxy centers from the brads. I was going to use the brads first, but then thought it might be fun to deconstruct them. 


I used another brad to anchor the small "Presents" chipboard to help create my 2015 Presents title. You will also notice the Combo Sticker "Celebrate" tucked into the layers on top. The tickets and arrows on the sides added a nice touch of fun to the page.

BoBunny Products:
Patterned Paper: Advent, Nutcracker, Season, Wonderland, Festive, Gift Tag, Sweater / Dear Santa
Combo Stickers: Dear Santa
Chipboard: Layered Chipboard and Chipboard / Dear Santa
Brads: Dear Santa
Buttons: Dear Santa
Dot Jewels: DoubleDot Ruby Red

Thanks so much for stopping on over today! I hope you are inspired to scrap some of your holiday photos today too. It was fun to use a cheerful and fun collection like Dear Santa.

Magical Holiday Moments with SEI

Happy New Year to you! I have an SEI holiday project to share with you today featuring the Glimmering Boughs collection.

Last year we took the family to a pioneer village for their holiday event which was such a great experience for the boys. There was a wooden sleigh that I took some photos of the kids in and of course the youngest was being silly so I captured some of those photos as well.

I started my page with the "All That Glitters" cream sheet, trimmed to 11x11 so I could layer it on top of the 12x12 "Cranberry Punch" sheet. The "All That Glitters" sheet has a beautiful embossed design that is very elegant.

Next, I selected a few borders from the Glimmering Boughs Border pack and you will see one at the top of the page and another in the design. I used a border punch to create my green layer, then selected the floral elements to build a flower. First, I pressure embossed the foiled red paper layers of my flower to add a bit of interest.
