Heritage Collection with BoBunny

1 comment:
Thursday greetings to you!

I've got a special project to share with you today featuring the all new Heritage collection by BoBunny. When I saw the tree patterned paper, I knew that I wanted to scrap this photo with it!

Since I wanted to emphasize the background design, I didn't want to layer a lot over the paper, but I still wanted some interest, so I trimmed the tree paper 1 inch on 2 sides to make an 11x11. Next, on my background paper, I used our Stickable Stencil Borders to create a Glitter Paste border in Wasabi. This gave the page a really pretty and subtle design. 


Using my Noteworthy die cuts, I found the perfect background for my photo. I determined placement and marked lightly with a pencil. Next, I added my stenciled clock, mist drops and stamping to the paper.


While that was drying, I also misted a small Doily with some Gold and Sugar Glimmer Spray to coordinate with my color scheme. Once the background paper was dry, I punched randomly in a few placed of the border.

One thing that I love about the BoBunny collections, there are always a ton of fun elements that you can cut out to help with your journaling and to tell you story. From the Combo Stickers to the Patterned Paper in the collection, it always comes together beautifully!

Garden Journal Post Card Mini with BoBunny

1 comment:
Happy Monday to you!  I have a BoBunny Design Team project to share with you today featuring one of our newest collections, Garden Journal.

One of my favorite sheets of the collection is a sheet called "Garden Journal Post Cards" which is a lovely variety of vintage postcards. I thought they would make a beautiful mini album, I hope you like it!

The cover features some paper from the Freehand sheet which was cut to showcase the bracket design, then I punched the compass as well and adhered with foam adhesive. Some subtle stamping is included as well from the Stained Textures set.

More stamping with the stained textures on the background, then I cut a pretty frame in green from the 3x4 Ornate Frame Dies, added a sticker from the Combo Stickers and circle punched the @ symbol and layered it into the frame.

This page is so pretty on its own, I accented the design using the It is Written stamp and added a layered Chipboard sentiment to the page.

Here you'll see the Elegant Border Die used to create a pretty background for my Once Upon A Time Chipboard sentiment. A Stamp Sticker and Jewel finish the accents.

More stamping, a Flourish Die cut from the Pastel paper, the chipboard sentiment here is one of my favorites in the collection!

Here I created a vellum pocket and filled it with a few sequins, then closed it with a Stamp Sticker.

Cheerful Everyday Cards with SEI!

1 comment:
Greetings!

I'm back today with one more post as guest designer for SEI Lifestyles Blog! Today I have a few card creations to share with you that I hope you enjoy. I loved working with the Spring Picnic collection for these.

 

My first card features a sentiment from the sentiments sheet which is so extremely versatile and perfect for card making or adding a journaling spot to your page. I trimmed the scallop piece at the top from the strip of the page as well.
 

 
I used the yellow ric-rac from the Forever Sassy Sundries as well as the sweet little bird and branch are from the Basics Die-Cut Elements. The die cut elements are just adorable!!! the little vellum accents added a nice subtle touch as well.
 
 
My next card is a more clean and simple design. I cut the base from the Spring Breeze - Clear Skies paper. The next layer is from Spring Breeze - Grandpa's Handkerchief. I used a circle die and cut through the top of these 2 layers

Next, I lined from behind with the Mother's Perfume paper. My blue circle layer was cut from the "Hoo's Sweet" Sundries packaging, followed by a Basics Die Cut Accents #1 sentiment. 

I finished the card with a paper bow and banners that were cut from some dies that I have.

These two creations give me a little bit of spring fever, I hope they do for you as well!

Thank you so much for having me as a guest designer at SEI, it's been an absolute pleasure!
