Utilizing your Bo Bunny Die-cuts

We all love die cuts, especially Bo Bunny Die Cuts! They add shape, motion and interest to almost any layout or project. Today Bo Bunny's designers are showcasing their projects created with a variety of Bo Bunny examples and creative ideas to help you utilize your Bo Bunny Die Cuts.

The first layout was created by Chistiane MullerChristiane used the die cut from the Zoology collection and mixed it with 3 other collections to create this gorgeous layout. Chistiane's panoramic photos also give you the feeling of motion and the title gives the impression of movement.

Next up is the ever talented Irene Tan.  Irene's layout was created using the Liberty Independence Die Cut and the Cambridge Crown Die Cut .  This scalloped circular die cut will give motion to any layout.  The circular shape has your eye following the details around the layout until you've completed the circle and seen every detail. Again, Irene combined several different Bo Bunny collections and circular embellishments to add consistency, interest and variety to her layout and photo.
The details.
Irene weaved  Double Dot Ribbon through the Denim Rope Trim from the Learning Curve Collection to  create her own trim.  She embellished the end of the trim with one of the Trinkets from the Liberty Collection.  It's a great way to mix your favorite Bo Bunny collections and create a new way to use your trims.

The next layout was created by Debbie Sherman and was also created with the Liberty Independence die cut. The statment of the photo and  layout is to remember that our freedom is not free.  The die cut and flourishes once again keeps your eye moving around the photo and layout in a circular motion.  It allows you to see the details while still keeping focus on the photo and the message.

 Jolanda Meurs created this layout entitled "My Star" as proof that you don't have to live in the USA to utilize the Liberty  Collection.  Jolanda says, "I wanted to show that the Liberty line is also great to use for other items than the 4 of July. We do not celebrate that in the Netherlands." She used the Liberty Independence Die Cut perfectly to highlight her little guy as her little star.  She used the chipboard star embellishments to keep the theme of the layout going. Again the eye is moving in  motion with the scalloped die cut and flouishes.

The embellishments are so cute and match up perfectly with her photo of the two sweet girls!
The jeweled centers on the flowers are the perfect added detail!

  6. I love all of the Lo's, and am inspired to finally make a page for my Uncle. He is interred at Florida National Cemetarty in Bushnell, Fl, and I have pictures of him and his grave that I haven't known how to scrap. That one Lo really helped me get my head around what to do and I can finally, hopefully create something special to honor this great man.
