Thanksgiving: Place Settings with Katherine

Hello everyone, Katherine here with some ideas for place settings for a special occasion.  I've used lots of die cuts alongside the Floral Spice collection to add a personal touch to any meal.

Here is the place setting as well as the napkin ring, I love the turquoise blue and rich purples in this collection, they contrast beautifully.


For the place settings my base was the Congratulations Essential Card Die which I then mounted on a folded piece of card stock.  I inked the card stock and then hid the edges with some gauze that I had coloured with gold, green and brown inks and mists.

I created a cluster of flowers in one corner using the Perfect Petals set and added gems in and around these - as well as a little bit of gold thread.  I cut out the little blue bird from the Beautiful paper.


I followed similar steps with this place card too and also tucked in some fanciful die cuts behind the flower cluster.

 Here you can see the layers of die cuts up close.

I made a co-ordinating napkin ring to go with each setting, layering up several of the Perfect Petals die cuts, again using gauze and some of the fanciful swirls die cuts as well as thread and a little corrugate card.


I hope this has inspired you to add some home made touches to your tables.

Thanksgiving: Give Thanks Decor Piece with Irit

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit is here today and I am going to share my Thanksgiving altered project made with the new BoBunny collection, Floral Spice!

There are many different types of decorations for Thanksgiving, but I decided to make a decor piece for the mantel. Living in Israel, the fireplace is the least used thing in our life, so I just made a nice decoration for the home and placed it on my shelf. You can alter this project and use it wherever works for you in your home!

I was hesitant to see if Floral Spice would work for a Thanksgiving them project but yes, it worked!



I tried to make this simple, affordable and something that any crafter can make with just one BoBunny collection without die cutting, stamping or Mixed Media add- ons.


The background was made with two pieces of cardstock; the upper  circle  edges were covered with BoBunny Gold Glitter paste.
Then some more layers were added using Combo Stickers, cardstock hand cuts, a couple of Layered Chipboards etc.
Two flower clusters were made with a lot of hand cut paper flowers from one single cardstock piece and layered with American Crafts foam dots.
The circled saying was made with Thickers from another new and adorable collection- Something Splendid.
The Floral Spice  collection has it's own lovely Thickers, but the color was too dark to be seen over my decoration hoop and I decided to use gold for the brighter color.





 I added some gold glitter paste dots over the paper flowers and around the hoop.

It reminds me the 20-30 s of XX century and the colors are so glamorous and chic

I used the cards with the quotes that I cut out from the paper sheets, also I've used my favorite techniques - fussy cutting and mixed it with die cutting.

I made several flaps for the photo cards and flaps as extra pages using black and ivory cardstock

Mini Albums: Squash Album with Katherine

Hello BoBunny fans, I want to share a squash album that I made use the Something Splendid papers.
I have to say that it was really hard to photograph the album as it ends up really long, but they are such fun to make and really quite easy.  I will talk you through the basic steps in my post.

I used 3 sheets of black yardstick and then most of the papers are from the 6" paper pad in this collection, though you could cut down the larger papers to fit.  You end up with four 6" squares  and 12 triangles (or six 6" squares cut in half).


Start by folding your card stock on the diagonal, make a really nice and crisp fold.

Turn over the card stock and then score at 6" on both edges to get this shape.
You need to do this 3 times.

When you come to assemble the album add tape on ones of the squares as shown, notice the central crease is a mountain fold, when you join the next piece of 12" card stock you need to have the paper the other way up, so a valley fold down the centre, then the last piece has a mountain fold.


Stick them together as above - you will notice that I hadn't done my folding correctly and the 2nd piece has mountain folds too - I just made sure the fold went the other way when I finished my book.
Add the final piece and then fold your book up, the triangular folds on the first piece of card stock go in, on the second piece go out and 3rd piece go in and it all folds into a 6" square.


I decorated my front cover with some off cuts from the main part of my book as well as the beautiful thickers that go with this collection.  A couple of lines of gems and a piece of layered chipboard finished it off for me.


I layered up lots of pieces from the 6" pad as they all co-ordinate beautifully, I then cut out journal cards and added gems and pearlescents to further decorate my book.
 Here are a couple more photos to show you the paper layers and other embellishments that I used for my album.

I hope it has inspired you to have a go at creating one of these really fun albums - you could start with 2 pages, then make them larger, you could make the album smaller and use 8" or 6" papers - they are really adaptable.

Using Stickers: Mini Book in a Box with Irit

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit is here and today  am going to share my Girls Only mini album in the handmade box that was created with the new and most gorgeous BoBunny Something Splendid paper collection.


Something Splendid collection is vintage style girly collection with friendship orientation and as a such it's a perfect one for girlfriends albums, layouts, cards or tags.
So  as this week the DT members were challenged to make projects using stickers I made this mini album in the box using this paper collection, lots of this collection stickers, layered chipboards and some other BoBunny and American crafts products.


I tried to make this box pretty flat, so the recipient  can carry it in the handbag.
I used the collection tag cardstock as my reference for the size. There are 8 tags in this cardstock and the size of the box fits the tag mini album that is inside the box.
I didn't add the photos (should be on the back of each tag and trimmed to size), as this is a present for my own girl and she will add the photos of here own girlfriends later.
The front was embellished with cardstock pieces and then a few Combo stickers were added on the " seen" side on the front. The flap was embellished with layered chipboards and one single blue flower was added over the chipboard piece.


The opened flap was embellish with more Combo stickers and I even used the side leftovers as some sticker strips.

The top was embellished with one more layered chipboards and it actually looks like a book cover.


And now the tags that were connected with a simple binder ring into a mini album.As you can see I added some gold transfer sayings over some of them and some Combo stickers over the others.
Each tag was matted over American Crafts black textured cardstock; the same cardstock was used as the base of my handmade box.




 And now some more of the tags for you to see:




And just to say: this project is easy to make and you don't need any fancy  or expensive tools to make it in just two hours. Just buy Something Splendid BoBunny collection and you are done!
