Birthday Calendar with Time & Place

Hello BoBunny fans!

Emmy here today sharing my first post for November. In the Netherlands we have something called a Birthday Calendar - it looks like the usual calendar, only there are no days of the week, so you can re-use it year after year. I thought the wonderful Time and Place collection from BoBunny would be perfect for it!

I create the base for each month, I cut off the middle parts of the pattern papers, inked their edges and adhered them on slightly larger panels of Double Dot Cardstock.

To cover the days of the week on each page I cut out banner stripes from silver and gold metallic washi tape.

To decorate my calendar I used fussy cut embellishments from different pattern papers. I used glitter gel pens to write the dates. To memorise a special day (New Year's Day, Birthday, Halloween, etc.) I used special squares from the 12" pattern papers.

I hope I managed to inspire you today!

Have a great week!

DIY Pocket Calendars with Angela

Hello friends!

Angela here. Today I am sharing my very first project made using the new BoBunny Time & Place collection. I created three pocket calendars and if you'd like to see how to make them, there is a video too!


These pocket calendars will be a gift to give to my friends for Christmas. Time & Place collection inspired me so many other projects and DIY to make. For example, you could make a big calendar to hung up or a teeny one, smaller than the one I am showing you, using Time & Place stamps.


To create these, I started stamping the monthly calendar on 12 pieces of 4 x 4 inches white paper.
For extra fun, I stamped each month in a different color using Vicki Boutin Color Wheel inks


To hold in place the calendar I used the colorful brads that are in the collection, two for each calendar.
I also wrapped washi tape around the papers for making the calendar sturdier and to embellish it, too.


The calendars have a hard cover made of cardboard wrapped in DoubleDot Vintage cardstock. The measures of the cardboard are 2 pieces of 4,25 x 4,25 inch and 1 piece of 0,50 x 4,25 inch.


For the closure I made two versions. One has got a brad and a piece of twine to wrap around the brad and the other has an elastic instead. 


This is how the calendar looks like when it is open. I adhered a journaling card to write a note to my friend.


I embellished also the cover, playing with Distress Oxide and bits and pieces from Time & Place collection. It carries such gorgeous flowers!!


Here is a close-up of the closure made with a beautiful flower brad and the elastic. I was lucky enough to find in my stash an elastic that perfectly match the color of the paper.


VoilĂ ! This is all for today. I hope you liked my pocket calendar idea and hopefully my friend too.


Thank you so much for stopping by. I'll see you soon!

Wallet Diary with Denise

Dear BoBunny Fans

It's Denise here today to share a wallet diary, using the gorgeous Time and Place Collection.

I had created a bag brag book a while back and so when I received the Time and Place collection, I immediately had the idea to create something similar, a diary for my bag.

I cut up the 12x12 papers, which have an 8x8 calendar part and so all of these formed the base for the diary. If folded each one in half and adhered them together, adhering only 3 sides, so that I had a pocket for each month too. Each pocket has a card and I can still add little notes in these too.
I added a solid cover to all the months, to add more protection to the spine and inside pages.

Here is a view from the side, so that you can see that it's not very thick or bulky. I also used some bits and pieces for the cover and stamped some of the month names.

I fussy cut some bits from the various months and added those to my pages. I used a purple fine-liner and ruler to draw the lines and also also write the numbers for January.

For February I used a maroon fine-liner for the lines and numbers.

I had so much fun creating this wallet diary. I know that I want to make some more and give them away as Christmas Gifts. They are so useful, as well as pretty! I hope you were inspired to try some of your own too.

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

Have a fabulous day!
