What Do You Do In The Summertime? The Beach!


Wish Upon A Starfish by Tracee Provis

My favourite season of the year is Summer, there is nothing better than the sun on your face and the sound of the Ocean in the background. We are lucky to get a beach holiday every year and it is thoughts of these trips that inspired me to create this Summer Beach themed wall-hanging.

I used a piece of watercolour paper to create my background on, first I sprayed Frost Glimmer Spray and the Star stencil from the Cascade set. I then took some Blueberry ink and stamped and embossed using the pebble texture stamp from the Wall To Wall Texture set. After this was dry I used another Stickable Stencil, this time from the Brocade set, and stencilled my text on with Frost Glitter Paste. By using the blue colours and various mediums I was ale to create a whole palette of different blue hues.
I chose the Happy title from the Noteworthy pack in the Boardwalk Collection, the sand print design really does look like sand its so cool. And of course it wouldn't be a each without a seagull, this was fussy cut and I added him to the top of my wooden sign.

I cut apart the plank sheet of paper from the Boardwalk 6 x 6 pad, giving it some irregular wood like shapes on the ends of each plank, I used small dots of Chocolate Pearlescents on the ends and when dried they look like the small rivets you often find in wood planks.
I added more pieces from the Noteworthy Pack and the delightful little oar from the Layered Chipboard pack, a little gauze added to the beachy feel of the project.
Boardwalk has to be one of my Bo Bunny all time favourites!

What Do You Do In The Summertime.....Collect Moments!

 Welcome to the BoBunny blog today! This week on the blog we are looking at what we do in the summertime, and for me summertime is all about spending time with my two favourites in the world, my children!

Collect moments not things - layout by Bernii Miller


 So at the end of last Summer here in Australia I organised a photoshoot with a dear friend of mine and was so over the moon when she managed to capture this precious photo of myself hugging and laughing with my children. 
  
  
I used the super sweet Garden Journal collection to showcase this summertime memory of mine, as the colours worked so well with the black and white photo. And let's be honest!! How could I not centre that awesome Misc Me journal card as the title to my layout :) 


The layout came together so easily and I love the soft feel the colours give to the overall feel. To help spread the doily across the top and bottom ha;f of the layout, I simply cut in half a medium doily and then adhered it to the top and the bottom of the clusters. I also decided to add a decorative edge to the doily with my Coral Pearlescents.

  
Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today and I hope that you have found some inspiration to capture your summertime memories.

Good Morning Everyone! Our theme this week is "What do you do in the summertime?". Well I know one thing for certain, here in Canada, summer is short, so we fit in as much as we can! So today I would love to share with you some of the things that my family does.

Find Your Paradise by Lynn Shokoples

Find Your Paradise by Lynn Shokoples for BoBunny featuring the Boardwalk Collection

 I started off by making a cover for my 12x12 Misc. Me binder. I used one of the 12x12 patterned sheets from the collection along with some of the Noteworthy pieces. Then I tucked in some of the Pocket Squares from the collection. I wanted a fun and bright cover for my album. The border stickers from the Combo Sticker Sheet helped hold the cover in place.


For my pockets, I used the cards from the Journal Contents pack. So many fun ones to choose from! Then the fun begins of decorating each card. I wanted to keep a theme on my photos so I used the letter stickers from the Combo Sticker sheet to make words about some of the activities we do in the summer. Then came the Noteworthy pieces which get tucked here and there. Now out came the layered chipboard.. oh my... how cute are those pieces? I loved the pockets squares, so I made one card using six of them!! The quotes were just too sweet and I wanted to use them all. I finished off with some stamping using the Captured Stamp Set.

 Pocket scrapping is such a fun way of doing a whole bunch of little layouts in one project. I look at each card as a mini layout. How do you do your pocket pages?

I used some old soda plastic bottles and gave them a new look.

I took off the label and used it as a template for a new one!

I also made some bag tops for two plastic bags.

Just measure the width of the bags, and decide how high they should be.

Chalk the edges.

Then I made some decorations for the bottles and the bag tops using Misc Me-cards and some patterned paper.
