Be Fabulous Misc Me Binder by Irene Tan

To decorate the binder for these misc me pages, I've used the beautiful and sweet pattern papers in this collection. I've also added some crackle paste to give the binder some textures.

To add some dimensions to it, I've fussy cut a huge flower from the pattern paper and detailed it with some doodling and pearlescent.

Garden Party Decor!


Hello Everyone!

It's Solange Marques here and today I'll share with you a "Butterfly Kisses" party decor.


I made a centerpiece for my granddaughter's birthday party. The theme of the party will be "Secret Garden", then I made a wishing well to decorate the desserts table.

Butterfly Kisses is a wonderful collection with many flowers and butterflies, perfect for this project.

Here some close-ups of this centerpiece:


I used pumice gel and BoBunny Gesso White to get this texture on the well:




I hope you enjoy it!

Take A Hike Layout with Crackle Paste!


Hello everyone! Are you up for another layout from me? Today, I'm going to share with you all a layout which I've created using the cool "Take A Hike" collection by BoBunny.

Nestled In The Trees Layout by Irene Tan

This is such a cool outdoor themed collection. Love the earth tones and the prints of trees, leaves, animals and logs. Here are some close-ups of this layout.


On this layout, I've used a little mixed media techniques to create the crackled textures on its background. I used BoBunny crackle primer and paste to create the crackle and later, sprayed it with some bronze and mint glimmer spray.





Hope you all are inspired and have fun playing!

I am excited to share with you my project for today featuring the Take A Hike collection along with some mixed media accents. To begin, I gave my light beige "Campfire" paper a light coat of our White Gesso. It virtually disappears if you use a light hand. This allows your Glimmer Spray to move and blend instead of soaking immediately into your paper.

Next, I determined the placement for my photo and chosen embellishments, then marked lightly with a pencil to the corners so I could stamp and ink accordingly.

I added Silver Glitter Paste to the background using the "Oh My Stars" Stickable Stencil. Then, I grabbed my Glimmer Sprays and started creating a few ink splatters. Once done, I misted very lightly with a few spritzes of water and set it aside to dry.

This is one of my favorite toddler photos of our youngest son. He tossed his hat off of his head and took off on a little walk at Grandpa's farm. I wanted to accent the hat gently, so I used the Layered Chipboard titled "Wander". I feel it draws your eye to the hat where without that embellishment, it disappeared into the photo.

What are your favorite mixed media supplies? Are there techniques you would like to see more examples of? We would love to know.

1 Layout 3 Ways with Take A Hike!


Good Morning! Today I am sharing a really fun project! It's a layout that shows three different ways you can scrapbook your projects. Clean and Simple? Maybe a little more? Oh my gosh I can't stop? I think I am the last one! So let's take a peek at what I created.

The Boyz of Summer by Lynn Shokoples

Here are all three layouts in the different stages. I've had this photo of my son and our grand dog Jiggy since last summer looking for the right collection. Then along came Take A Hike! Perfect for those lazy days of summer out at the lake. Now let's take a look at the different layouts a little more closely.

Boyz of Summer One Layout Three Ways by Lynn Shokoples for BoBunny featuring the Take A Hike Collection.

 For the first layout I added some Noteworthy Pieces, a little Chipboard and a few strips of the 6x6 Paper Pad. I used one of the cards from the Pocket Squares to use as a title. Done?

 For the next step I added more paper strips along the side, backed my photo and added a few more chipboard pieces along with some Noteworthy. There are so many fun elements in the Noteworthy and Chipboard packs, I had a hard time stopping.. now are we done?

 For the finished layout I added stamps, some Graphite Pearlescent with the Under the Sea Stickable stencil and a title from the Combo Stickers. I found the Icon and Emoji Stamps perfect for filling in those little spaces and it added some fun to the layout. See.. I have a hard time stopping! I am definitely the "I don't know when to stop" scrapper, always looking for another little spot for an embellishment.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you have a Scrappy Happy Day!!!!

Take A Hike With Misc Me!


Hi BoBunny fans! Today I will be sharing some 12 x 12 Misc Me pages with you using the fabulous Take A Hike Collection, so lets get started.

The Great Outdoors by Tracee Provis

Ever year we hire a little cottage by the sea, there are lots of trails and coastal paths to explore so I thought I would create an album of our adventures.


The Take A Hike collection is perfect for documenting outdoor walks, and I cut out 3 x 4 journaling cards on the Trails sheet. I cut just the paw on the bear card then I slipped my picture of the nature trail sign in behind and it looks like he is holding on to it for me.


I layered up some papers along with a Misc Me Pocket Square (that I cut the edges off) and then added some journaling. As you can see by the date I am starting with some older photo's in this album.


I cut the compass from another of the Pocket Squares, there are usually more than one of each of the cards, so I still have another to use in its entirety. I then layered over a title that I cut on my silhouette.


I used the 4 pocket page protector for my next page and in each one I created like a mini scrapbook page. 


I cut out the frame that is on the fishing sheet and I wanted it to fill my pocket but it wasnt quite big enough so I attached it to a 6 x 6 piece of vellum and popped it in. I sneaked in a butterfly that I cut from the Butterfly Kisses Collection. Once again I cut the Wild and Free title on my silhouette.


You can also use your mixed media products in your pockets, here I took the Summertime Stencil and added some crackle paste clouds to my papers after it was totally dry I then added it to my page protector.


I hope you have enjoyed your visit with me today, I will be back soon to share more of the pages in this album.
