Mini Albums: Squash Album with Katherine

Hello BoBunny fans, I want to share a squash album that I made use the Something Splendid papers.
I have to say that it was really hard to photograph the album as it ends up really long, but they are such fun to make and really quite easy.  I will talk you through the basic steps in my post.

I used 3 sheets of black yardstick and then most of the papers are from the 6" paper pad in this collection, though you could cut down the larger papers to fit.  You end up with four 6" squares  and 12 triangles (or six 6" squares cut in half).

Start by folding your card stock on the diagonal, make a really nice and crisp fold.

Turn over the card stock and then score at 6" on both edges to get this shape.
You need to do this 3 times.

When you come to assemble the album add tape on ones of the squares as shown, notice the central crease is a mountain fold, when you join the next piece of 12" card stock you need to have the paper the other way up, so a valley fold down the centre, then the last piece has a mountain fold.

Stick them together as above - you will notice that I hadn't done my folding correctly and the 2nd piece has mountain folds too - I just made sure the fold went the other way when I finished my book.
Add the final piece and then fold your book up, the triangular folds on the first piece of card stock go in, on the second piece go out and 3rd piece go in and it all folds into a 6" square.

I decorated my front cover with some off cuts from the main part of my book as well as the beautiful thickers that go with this collection.  A couple of lines of gems and a piece of layered chipboard finished it off for me.

I layered up lots of pieces from the 6" pad as they all co-ordinate beautifully, I then cut out journal cards and added gems and pearlescents to further decorate my book.
 Here are a couple more photos to show you the paper layers and other embellishments that I used for my album.

I hope it has inspired you to have a go at creating one of these really fun albums - you could start with 2 pages, then make them larger, you could make the album smaller and use 8" or 6" papers - they are really adaptable.

Using Stickers: Mini Book in a Box with Irit

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit is here and today  am going to share my Girls Only mini album in the handmade box that was created with the new and most gorgeous BoBunny Something Splendid paper collection.

Something Splendid collection is vintage style girly collection with friendship orientation and as a such it's a perfect one for girlfriends albums, layouts, cards or tags.
So  as this week the DT members were challenged to make projects using stickers I made this mini album in the box using this paper collection, lots of this collection stickers, layered chipboards and some other BoBunny and American crafts products.

I tried to make this box pretty flat, so the recipient  can carry it in the handbag.
I used the collection tag cardstock as my reference for the size. There are 8 tags in this cardstock and the size of the box fits the tag mini album that is inside the box.
I didn't add the photos (should be on the back of each tag and trimmed to size), as this is a present for my own girl and she will add the photos of here own girlfriends later.
The front was embellished with cardstock pieces and then a few Combo stickers were added on the " seen" side on the front. The flap was embellished with layered chipboards and one single blue flower was added over the chipboard piece.

The opened flap was embellish with more Combo stickers and I even used the side leftovers as some sticker strips.

The top was embellished with one more layered chipboards and it actually looks like a book cover.

And now the tags that were connected with a simple binder ring into a mini album.As you can see I added some gold transfer sayings over some of them and some Combo stickers over the others.
Each tag was matted over American Crafts black textured cardstock; the same cardstock was used as the base of my handmade box.

 And now some more of the tags for you to see:

And just to say: this project is easy to make and you don't need any fancy  or expensive tools to make it in just two hours. Just buy Something Splendid BoBunny collection and you are done!

Using Stickers: Cards with Elena

Hello BoBunny Friends.
Today I've got a bunch of cards using the Floral Spice collection and the Stickers


First I started doing fussy cutting and cut out  mostly the florals from the patterned papers


What I like about this new collection is that all the florals are different

I arranged those cut out flowers around the tag cards - they are from the stickers sheet. I've only put the tags on the foam pads so that they could be a main focus and eye catching element on the card


I also made the sentiment panels  for my cards - those are from the Stickers sheet too.


for my second card I printed the sentiment and placed it on the banner sticker


Though I have used the same techniques and even the sketch for my cards, they all look different


Except for the tags  and banners that are the stickers, I 've added the hearts border to embellish my card too



So it's quite easy to create the layers on your projects using not only the paper pieces but the Stickers too.

A Fall Layout with Katherine

Hello everyone, Katherine here with a page using the new and gorgeous Floral Spice collection.  

This collection has beautiful warm colours, I love the deep blue/green, purples, greens and browns - perfect for any occasion and they team up beautifully with lots of the BoBunny staples.  I chose a typical Autumnal shot and annual event, collecting conkers - there is something quite magical about popping them out of their shells and seeing that really glossy shine on them.

I started with the chocolate brown paper - Endearing as my base, then layered up Floral Spice and Wonderful for the top half of the page.  I added a layer of BoBunny lace too, to add a bit of texture to my page.

Around my photo I used a couple of the mini doilies and also layered up lots of papers here you can see Memories and both sides of Forest.

I added an embellishment cluster with some of the laser cut chipboard leaves as well as one of the clover pansies

I used the Serenity Stickable Stencil with glitter paste, and I mixed my pastes as I stencilled so you can see turquoise, seafoam and a little bit of grape.  I added them to different areas on my stencil and was careful not to put any back in the pot.  I really like the two tone (or three tone in this case) effect that it gives.

Also chipboard and chocolate jewel swirls to finish off the luxury of the page.

I hope you've enjoyed a tour of my page, be back for lots more inspiration.

Potion Box with Denise

Hello BoBunny Fans

I was inspired by the patterned papers from Land of Wonder and really wanted to use the little bottles, so a potion box sprung to mind and was what I created, for a Halloween theme.
I had a little note box, which I altered with paste, paints and bits.

Land of Wonder_Potion Box_Denise_30 Oct 01

I fussy cut some of the trees from the patterned paper and added them to spider web crackle paste design, along with other bits and pieces.

I used metal beads and black beads to add texture and look like weird and wonderful eggs, along with the purple bloom and gauze.

Land of Wonder_Potion Box_Denise_30 Oct 02

Here's a look at the inside and the potion bottles.

I used old food colouring bottles which I had put away for something special and altered them with black pearlesecent and fussy cut bits, noteworthy bits and metal elements.

Land of Wonder_Potion Box_Denise_30 Oct 03

I used the "Relax & Enjoy" noteworthy piece on the inside, which is a little play on words, especially when drinking a potion!!

Land of Wonder_Potion Box_Denise_30 Oct 04

I added this layered chipboard piece to the back of the box, which was perfect and the perfect size too.

Land of Wonder_Potion Box_Denise_30 Oct 05

I really had fun creating this little potion box and contents, just in time for Halloween. I will whip up some potions and create magic! This witch is ready to trick and treat!!

Have a super magical day
