Easy & Inexpensive Layouts

We're working with our BB formula today....
This is to inspire you and show that it doesn't take a lot of time & money to make a fabulous layout when you have fabulous product.

We've used two of our new collections...


Here's the formula...
and here are the layouts

BoBunny Supplies: 
Patterned Paper : Mama-Razzi, Contrast, Strike a Pose/Mama-Razzi2
Cardstock : Coffee Vintage Double Dot

Stickers : Mama-Razzi Combo Stickers
Chipboard : Mama-Razzi Layered Chipboard

"This is what was left after I had done my layout. As you can see there is still loads of stickers and chipboard and I always keep the strips of cardstock and patterned paper to use for layers, die cutting, punched shapes or to punch strips with a edge punch. The best part here is because I used the Contrast paper I have all those gorgeous little 4x6 and 3x4 journaling and decorative blocks to go in a Misc me album!"

 Tip: Choose papers that have lots of elements to fussy cut and that also have backsides that allow for extra elements. I used the square elements in the Darkroom paper to anchor my design. It gave me a lot of different prints for the blocks, too.
Stitching can add a ton of detail. If you want to keep it quick, instead of stitching along the lines, just add piercing at the corners and places that you want your stops to be. (see close-ups) When using this technique, use all 6 strands of floss.
