Double Dot & Take a Hike Party by Megan Gourlay for BoBunny

There's always sweet treats at parties but why not put a quirky hiking theme to them?  Like chocolate peanuts could be bear poop ;)  but in NZ I found huhu grubs at the lollie shop :)  Perfect for my party seeing as their indigenous to NZ and found in dead logs, easy to find when you take a hike ;)

First up, goody bags! So why not backpacks?!  I've used different colours and ranges of Double Dot Cardstock to make mine, using brads from the collection to co-ordinate and some misc. matching ribbon.

Snazzy Firecracker Cards!


Firecracker Cards by Tracee Provis

Firecracker cards by Tracee Provis Bo Bunny 01

Hi BoBunny fans, today I have some cards to share that I created using the adorable Firecracker Collection. The Firecracker Collection is a wonderful line that incorporates July 4th and much much more.

For my first card I started with a white base, then stenciled some clouds and a sun using Glitter Paste and Pearlescents.


I stamped the hot air balloons and the clock with stamps from the Dreamer set. I stamped the hot air balloons a second time onto patterned paper from the Firecracker 6 x 6 paper pad, I then fussy cut just the balloon part and layered it over the original shape.

You can use the BoBunny Pearlescents in a number of different ways, this time I used the Brilliant Blue Pearlescents and painted my cloud shapes. They have a real shimmer and you can water them down to create different shades. After they were dry I used a mixture of Lemonade and Gold Glitter Paste and the Summertime Stickable Stencil set to make my sun in the clouds.



I wish we celebrated July 4th here in England it looks like so much fun! I always make a card for my friend over in the USA and I love the little children that feature in the Firecracker collection so I decided to make him the focus of my card.

I layered up some papers from the collection and placed my fussy cut image in the centre, I used the On This Day stamp set to create my sentiment. BoBunny produces a set of Stamp Blocks, they are really great as they have a grid etched on for you to stamp your stamps exactly where you want them.

For my final card I chose one of the 3 x 4 sections of the paper and carefully cut away the white parts, this left me with a red and blue starburst that I mounted onto a slightly larger white piece. In the white parts I added a small dot of Silver Pearlescents.

I used the same technique with the balloons as I did on the first card. I cut out a small circle and added my sentiment to it, with a few more of the Silver Pearlescents to make a simple greeting. I wanted to keep this card simple but I felt it needed a little something more, so I cut some clouds from vellum using the Fly Away die. I turn to this die time after time as I love cloud shapes. Thank you for spending time with me today, see you soon!

Firecracker Mixed Media Layout!

Greetings, I am so excited to share with you my page today featuring the Firecracker collection accented with Pearlescents and other mixed media. I have used the "Oh My Stars" Stickable Stencil and the Sugar Pearlescents to accent the star shapes within the patterned paper here, as well as my Laser Cut Chipboard title.

Every Fourth of July we visit the same local place to watch the fireworks display. It has become a tradition for the boys to bring along a light up toy of some sort so they can entertain themselves while they wait. Last year we were playing quite a while until it dawned on me that I had not captured any photos! I'm so glad that even if the quality isn't perfect, you can at least still see some fireworks in the one photo background.


To create my textured effect for my Laser Cut Chipboard title, I first applied some Sugar Pearlescents on the chipboard using a craft mat underneath.


Once evenly applied, I coated a layer of white pearl embossing powder on top, then shook off the excess and used my heat embossing gun to emboss.


I like the extra texture and interest that it added to the Laser Cut Chipboard. Next, I used Brilliant Blue Pearlescents on the Trellis Tag behind it, but I let the pretty shine from the Pearlescents finish the tag.

I stamped a bit and randomly splattered Glimmer Spray in Gold, Sugar and Frost. I then added a few of the Silver Foil Transfers to add a bit of sparkle and shine. A few Dot Jewels were added to some of my embellishments as an accent.

1 Layout 3 Ways With Firecracker!


Hello Everyone

It's Denise here today, to share 1 layout, 3 different ways.

Mixed Media Layout by Denise van Deventer using BoBunny Firecracker and Pearlescents and Washi Tape

The first page, has a fairly clean design to it.  I did some gesso stenciling, some water colouring and stamping, along with some washi tape bits and a few accents.

On the second page, I added some die-cuts and added highlights with a white gel pen. The addition of the red die-cut pieces, just seemed to make the page pop.

On the last page, I added yet more stamping, stenciling with pearlescents and more accents, along with some journaling.

I guess the key to styling, is sometimes knowing when to stop and that "enough is enough".

Here are some close-ups of the clusters and details.

This photo was taken a few years back and is of my son, who was playing around with these sunglasses.  He was trying to look very cool and then eventually the sunglasses did not sit correctly over his nose and so I got this cute shot! ;-)

Whatever your style, that's the great thing about scrap booking, you can add as little or as much as you want.  It's all up to you! ;-)

Thanks so much for stopping by the BoBunny blog today.  We hope to see you back soon.

Super Hero Misc Me!


My grandson celebrated his fifth birthday with a party which theme was Super Heroes. He was Super Man and his friends were using fantasies of several heroes, it was so funny. When I saw the Firecracker collection, I thought that was perfect for the Misc Me about her party. 


 On the first page of this Misc Me I used the invitation for the party:


I covered the title using blue Pearlescents:


Here he is Clark Kent, his secret identity:



And here he is doing the dramatic gesture of ripping open his shirt to reveal the familiar "S" emblem when called into action!


 I mixed pearlescent with BoBunny gel and I applied it on the stencil :


 I made the same on this page and I also applied pearlescent on the hearts:

With warmer and warmer Summer days there is a big need for drinking stations in the garden,

Why to wait for weekend or party if we can set up little table with drinks and healthy snack for everyday use.

My kids love Mohito /virgin version of course! We have plenty of mint in our garden so with a little help from BoBunny I created fun and festive decoration for this week. And best of all there is still time to order Firecracker collection to make lovely decorations for any party with family and friends.
