Sweet Clementine: Butterfly Cage

Hello BoBunny Fans

It's Denise here today. I had the idea to use a wood bird cage, that I have had for ages, and alter it and create a butterfly cage.

I also used some natural elements, along with the gorgeous BoBunny goodies, that just brought this little project together.

I created a central feature, under the butterflies. These butterflies, I fussy cut from the patterned paper for the cage.

I wanted to give this cage a vintage and rusty feel too and so added some blue opal paint, right at the end.

I  made a video, to show you how I created this cage. I hope it will provide you with a few little seeds of inspiration.

This little cage is already standing in my hallway and is a great decorative piece.

Thanks so much for stopping by the BoBunny blog today and we really hope to see you back tomorrow.

Have a fabulous day!

Sweet Clementine: Heart Layout with Angela

Hi BoBunny friends, Angela here with a new layout featuring Sweet Clementine collection and it's all about love! In it there's all I love, my family, butterflies, hearts and pink! 


My idea was to draw a big heart on a white cardstock. I first used a pencil and when I was satisfied with the shape and dimension of the heart, I took pink acrylic paint and a brush and I paint the heart. When it was dry, I repeated the passage with black gesso. This time I used a dry brush, grabbing just a little bit of gesso and without pressing to much.
I also added a touch of sparkle with BoBunny pink Glitter Paste, applying it with my finger. Last, some pink and black splatters and the background was done.


There's a gorgeous paper in Sweet Clementine collection, the name is Butterflies and of course it's full of beautiful colorful butterflies. I decided to use that to mainly embellish my layout, so I started fussy cutting all the pink butterflied on the paper. Actually, I fussy cut all the butterflies, but I saved the non-pink ones for a future project.


I used them to create two clusters of butterflies, on the top right and on the bottom left of the heart. I folded a bit the butterflied to give them dimension and to give the impression of movement.
To give a visual triangle I added a third single butterfly on top left. This should give a more balanced look to the layout.


On the left, I glued three stipes of patterned paper from Sweet Clementine collection. They are half inch wide and before adhering, I sewed with my sewing machine and distressed them one side.
For the title the choice was easy. I used the coordinated alpha chipboard, which are pink and have a little pink foil line in the middle.


I chose a heart for my photo too. I cut it with a die and layered it with other hearts underneath, cut from patterned paper.  A few other pink details, like the big chipboard word Wonderful and a few pink foiled hearts and voilĂ , the layout is done!

As you can see, it's a pretty thick layout and, don't blame me, I love dimensional layouts!


I hope you like the project and you feel inspired to create your 'love' page. Thank you for stopping by and I'll see you soon!

Sweet Clementine: Layout with Emmy

Hello BoBunny fans!

Emmy here today with my second project for February. This time I decided to create a layout using the fabulous Sweet Clementine collection from BoBunny. I chose a pink-black palette, because it matched my picture perfectly.

Here is a video tutorial to help you make your own layout!

To assemble my layout I used two different pattern papers from the Sweet Clementine collection. I created the white dimensional layer onto the Charisma pattern paper using a Stickable Stencil and Texture paste. Once the paste has dried, I cut off a 15 x 30 cm stripe from the Delight pattern paper and adhered it to the middle of the pinkish one. To finish off my background paper, I added silver foil hears and I sprinkled Glimmer Spray.

To decorate my picture I fussy cut a lot of different butterflies from the Butterflies pattern paper. I adhered them to the background using foam dots.

I also used different Double Dot embellishments (rhinestones, brads and swirls) to decorate my page. The variety of colors and shapes of the Double Dot range makes it really easy to mix-and-match gorgeous embellishments with every single one of the BoBunny's paper lines. 

As a final touch I added a title, which I fussy cut from the Memories pattern paper. I inked its edges and added sparkling rhinestones to make it pop.

Valentine Decor: Framed Piece

Hi everyone!
Today I´m back with a little valentines homedecor for you. I was thinking a long time of WHAT I wanted to do since I thought there were so many decorations in forms of lollipops, flags, pennants, festoons and so on on the internet. So I decided to make a painting to hang on the wall. Will be nice to have together with pennants and other decorations in my opinion.
So for today I have a painting for you and I really hope you will like it!
I made it black, with and pink, love these colors together and I also think it fits my home!
I used the mini alphabet punchboard to cut out the letters, black cardstock that I painted some white gesso on and also made some splatter with the white gesso. When I did the splatter I mixed it up with a little bit of water and then splatter on the painting with a brush.
Cut out the butterflies from a pattern paper from the collection and glue it on here and there.
I also made a lot of pink dots with the pearlescents blush.
And I really like it and love have it on the wall.

BoBunny Supplies:
Mini alphabet punchboard
Pattern paper from Sweet clementine collection

Blush pearlescents

Have a nice day!

I enjoyed making the paper decor for this day. And made a set of cards, banners and decorated the bottles


I cut out the butterflies from the paper sheet and embellished the empty wine bottles with them.


For the cards I cut out the flowers and arranged the paper layers on my cards


I like the colors this collection has, different shades of pink, red and orange, and faded green.


I also made a banner to decorate the mirror or the wall


I made them using the Banner Punch Board and decorated it slightly with the hearts


and added just a couple of butterflies too.

Valentine's Day Decor: Intricate Frame with Elisa

Hello BoBunny friends!!!

Here is Elisa from Italy!! Today is the 10th of February... Four days until Valentine's Day!!
So I realize a Valentine Decor for you, using the awesome "Sweet Clementine" collection!
I love altered frame...And this one is full of love! I can'r wait to add a new picture inside it!!

So let me show you some details!!!
In this picture you can se how much I like fussy cutting!!! When I saw for the first time the "Delight"12x12 cardstock I immediately thought that I had to piece that heart!!! I couldn't resist!!
I covered the original frame with the black and white side of "Memories" cardstock. I also used cotton cloth on the background, behind the picture place. My goal was to cause you to think about lace when you see every detail.

Butterflies, flowers, and pink mirrored chipboard hearts: what is better than that on a romantic project??

Title composed with Sweet Clementine Thickers:

Combo stickers elements: tabs, ticket and butterflies banner!!! And some Pearlescent Butterscotch dot's, here and there.

Another lovely element of this paper collection are the bird cages: I chose to fussy cut a black one in the "Lavish" cardstock.

Sweet Clementine 12x12 Paper Pad
Sweet Clementine 12" Combo Stickers
