How To Create Your First Scrapbook Layout

Hi BoBunny friends, Angela here!
I am so happy to share with you my latest page because I really love it.
This 12" x 12" scrapbook layout was made with BoBunny Boulevard collection. My today assignment is to give you scrapbook tips and this page of mine fits perfectly the theme.

I would start saying that there's no right or wrong to put together a page, but there are some tricks that can make the process easier, faster and the final page look great.

1- The Photo
This may seem obvious but choosing a beautiful pic is half of the work. By beautiful pic I mean a clear shot. You can always improve the photo with a post editing, since there's plenty of apps out there that does the job.

2- The Paper 
Choose a paper collection that matches the colors of your photo/photos and buy both papers and embellishments. I'm not saying you have to buy the whole collection if you don't want to. Just choose a few papers that you like and the ephemera pack or the stickers to make the process smooth. This way you won't spend to much time wondering what to use and if it fits the page.

If the photo doesn't fit the collection you love and absolutely want to use it, I would suggest you using a black and white photo to avoid the problem.

3- Use a Sketch or lift someone else's page
The easiest way to put together a page is to place a photo in the center of the page and place the embellishments around it. If you want to take the page to a step further, you can always use a sketch or get inspired by someone else's page. Pinterest is a great place to gather some ideas but sometimes can be overwhelming. Narrow up the research by looking for to the works of the design team of a brand could be a good choice too.

The scrapbook page I'm showing you here is made by overlapping a few paper frames I made by myself. I placed one on another and the photo on top. Each frame is 0.25 inch depth so the page is pretty bulky. My last tip is about how to store these thick pages. Instead of trying to insert them inside the page protectors, I usually glue them on the outside of the page protectors. This way I can keep them in my scrapbook albums.

That's all my basic trips, the ones I use for myself too. I hope you find them useful. Thanks for stopping by today and I'll see you soon here.

The great thing about handmade flowers is that you can choose the shape, design and color to perfectly match any project.

I created a video of the process and I hope that you will see that it's really quite easy.


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

Have a marvelous day!

Stamping Tips with Malin

Hello everyone!

Today I will share with you a few scrapbooking tips from me.
I have some small simple tips using stamps today and using stamps to make decorations for your projects. I love using stamps om my projects and I hope you will do to.

The thing is that this is something you can do if you don´t have that much time for scrapbooking but still want to scrap a few minutes or half an hour or so when you can. As for example before christmas time when we have our hands full of preparing christmasgifts, decorate the house, meeting up with family and so on.


Prepare some 10x10 cm cardstock to be used for this, you will get 4 out of one cardstock and that is good! You can have them on your table to be used as you go. Or just the sizes you like!
I have then used the christmas stamps christmas treasures from this collection.

Tip 1. Use some basic monochromatic cardstock, stamp your stamps and then cut it out, and you have a decoration. On this picture I took brown cardstock and stamped some of the cones on. Perfect and I do not need to color them! And i have some decorations for my card!

Tip 2. Stamp on patterned papper. This will give the stamp more "life" in it even if you do not color it. I have on this one used patterned papper pieces from the collection christmas treasures and stamped some of the banners and text, cut it out and I have a decoration. Do this with all kinds of patterned papper that you have and you can do several and save for later projects. This is also fun and easy to do in front of the tv... Or if you cook or something just stamp a few during the time you are waiting and so on.

Tip 3. If you have a litte more time now and then stamp up your stamp and emboss it! You can emboss with all sorts of colors and it also looks nice to have an embossed picturestamp on a monochromatic paper to be used on a cas card and so on. Just play and try around what you like!



Tip 4. Do as usual and stamp up a lot of your small picture stamps and color them. You don´t need to color them all at ones, do some now and then when you have a little time left. Then when they are done start cut them out and you will have a lot of decorations for your projects when you have a little more time to be sitting down and scrapbook! I personaly think this is great to have been making and have them done when it´s time for scrapbook time!



Small tips from me today. Look around your stamps and you probably will have plenty to make decorations of!
So here it is then...
A small christmas card I did using the stamp set. The card is only 10x10 cm but perfect to send out as a christmas card or be put on the christmasgift you just wraped to write on to the person who is giving the gift.
