Creative Layouts: Tree Tradition with Angela

Hello BoBunny friends! Angela here with a fun layout featuring Winter Getaway collection. I’m sure most of you still have tons of Christmas photos to scrapbook and so do I. I had this sweet pic of my boys while they were busy preparing our Christmas tree and I had to use it!

I started the page selecting the paper and I found that Evergreen paper, with its little trees was perfect for what I had in mind. 
I roughly drew the same tree shape of the pattern paper on a piece of paper in two different sizes, one big and one smaller. I fussy cut them and used them as a template. I transfer the shape of the big tree onto the Evergreen paper and with a precision knife I cut the tree. 

To back the empty space I chose the green Woodland paper. At this point I decided to make something crazy! I Started stitching all the teeny tiny leaves of the paper. I was a long work, but it worth it, I love the result so very much.


I cut out also the small tree from the 6x6 paper pad of Winter Getaway, because I thought that small patterns worked better. 

To give a more finished look, I stitched all around the trees, the two big, the positive and the negative of the cut out and the small one, using tree different embroidery stitching, the back stitch, the chain stitch, the blanket stitch.


The page was pretty busy but I wanted to add a pop of color. I want for the red flowers of the collection. Some of them are from the Noteworthy pack of the collection, while I fussy cut others from Winter Getaway Branches paper.


To make the title stand out on such I full page, I used a trick, I added a long strip op vellum and adhered the letter stickers straight on it.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you liked the layout and you are feeling inspired to create your unique embroidery piece of scrapbook page.

Winter Getaway: Hello Winter Layout with Emmy

Hello BoBunny fans!

Emmy here today with my second project for this month. This month I have the pleasure to design with the amazing Winter Getaway collection from BoBunny's latest release. This collection is playful and fun and it is perfect for all types of winter projects.

To create my background I used two different pattern papers. I cut off 1.5 cm from each side of the grayish paper, distressed its edges using paper distresser and adhered it on top of the greenish paper. Then, using a stickable stencil and glitter paste, I created the green dimensional layer on top. Once the glitter paste has dried, I sprinkled white mist on top.

I layered my picture on a pattern paper from the paper pad and used different fussy cut and pre cut images to embellish it.

I also used some of the lovely layered chipboard embellishments, matching the collection.

I added green blossoms, snowflake stickers, die cut swirls and rhinestone swirls to my page as well.

To finish off my design I added rhinestones and sparkling brads.

And here is the video tutorial:

Winter Getaway: Layout with Elisa

Hello everyone, crafty friends!!

Here is Elisa from Italy! Today I'm here for sharing with you my first project for BoBunny!! What an excited moment for me!
So, let me introduce you the Layout "Sweet Winter": I used the wonderful collection Winter Getaway. When I saw for the first time this paper collection I immediately thought about how much wonderful the colors are. These colors spoke to me about warm sweaters, cabins in the wood, hot chocolate in a giant mug and footprints on the snow.

The background of the LO is the Homestead Cardstock 12"x12": I blended some white gesso with a gauze behind the right part of the cardstock, for highlighting le place where I decided to put my picture (blend gesso with a piece of gauze is great to achieve a gentle textured effect).

I cut the other elements of the LO from Branches and Retreat Cardstocks 12"x12" (I used them to realize the picture frame, the bend on the right side of the LO and the ornament with banner on the left side).

For the title I used the Chipboard Alphabet Stickers... The Font is really nice, and the little snowflakes give them a very icy effect!!!

I gave movement to the picture frame, ripping the edges and pasting additional flowers which end outside the original square. I also chose some wonderful brads by the collection as embellishment.

I added to the frame trees other two pines by the Noteworthy pack, using some foam adhesive (Sticky Thumb):

You can find these little cabins in the Noteworthy pack too:

I really love this banner and the sentiment on it...
For the background I used the 6"x6" cardstock with multiple patterned stripes on it: I cut all those thin stripes with different lenghts and pasted them behind the little double banner with deers (I chose it, because it has the same pattern of the bigger band on the right side of the LO, but it's smaller).

As embellishmets I used some other brads and little flowers by Noteworthy:

I hope you enjoy this project!!  Till next time!!

Winter Getaway: Foxy Lady Layout by Denise

Hello BoBunny Fans

It's Denise here today with a mixed media layout using Winter Getaway.

This is such a fun collection and can be mixed up to use with various themes, not just a winter page and so this is exactly what I did.

Winter Getaway_Mixed Media Layout_Denise_19 Jan 01

I had taken this selfie of myself quite a while ago and thought that I hadn't scrapped myself for ages and since it is the start of a new year, I thought it was a great way to perk myself up and really be my own best fan! One has to believe in yourself and be your biggest fan!

The little fox was just too cute and so was the inspiration for this page.

Winter Getaway_Mixed Media Layout_Denise_19 Jan 02

I used a number of pieces from the noteworthy pack and also fussy cut some bits from the patterned papers. To ensure my photo also fitted onto the photo frame, I fussy cut some of the flower and leaf edges with a craft knife, so that I could slide the photo under these.

Winter Getaway_Mixed Media Layout_Denise_19 Jan 03

I added details to all the fussy cut bits and noteworthy pieces, by adding pearlescent to the flower centres, white highlights on the flowers and using a white and brown pen to add further details.
These little touches add a further layer of interest.

The layering up of noteworthy pieces is also a great way to create design accents and draws the eye.

Thanks so much for stopping by the BoBunny blog today! I wish you all a fabulous 2019 and hoping that you are your biggest fan in this year!

Hope to see you back tomorrow.

DIY Calendar with Elena

Hello BoBunny Friends,

the new 2019 year is officially here so it's time to plan your year

I used Banner Year collection for this, as it is perfect for the calendars


My calendar is of a small size, so I embellished it with a few die cuts from Noteworthy pack

and made some fussy cuts from the papers

For some of the pages I made fussy cutting of florals and added the stickers too


Since the sie of the calendar is not large enough, so I cut out the half of the flowers
