A Fall Layout with Once Upon a Lifetime

Hello BoBunny fans, Katherine here with a new scrapbook page using the beautiful Once Upon a Lifetime collection - which is packed with Autumnal/Fall colours.


We recently went to visit my Grandma and so it was a wonderful chance to document and get a few shots of my children with her and the this heritage collection made it really easy to scrap.


I started with the 6" pad and die cut lots of flowers using the Perfect Petal die set, I love that you get a mix of flowers and you can layer them up really easily to co-ordinate with your papers.  A bit of inking and bending of the paper and you have a beautiful bloom.


I pinch and bend up the leaves to add dimension and then often use a jewel in the centre.   Once I had a few of my embellishments made I cut out lots of the frames, and arrange these on my patterned paper (Ancestors), I wanted to create lots of little bits of interest around the page so I used a mix of the stickers in this collection as well as some fussy cut elements.


As a few of the frames (from Traditions) are copper I added some Copper foil transfers....they do come out perfectly, but because I wanted my page to look vintage I then scratched and lifted them a little bit.  I also used the doily stencils and some copper glitter paste to add a little bit of sparkle in a few places.


I love to add a little ripped element on my vintage page and have things poking out from behind - for this I used the darling doily and a little bit of copper paste which brings out the embossing on this die-cut.


I had lots of fun, just layering so many elements - the perfect sticker was in the Sticker collection and I included some of the laser cut leaves and also the beautiful 3D glittered chipboard too.  It was lots of fun to make, and just keep adding to!

Welcome Fall: Thanks Layout with Irit


 Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit is here today and this time I am going to share a layout made as a gift for the nursery staff .
 My third and most adorable grandson Lior spent a year and a half in this wonderful place and he is moving to the " big boys" kindergarten.
So my daughter asked if I can do a craft gift with some photos she made during the last months.
Yes, I sure can, even when the photos are totally out of my scrapping range (bad backgrounds, poor quality photos are not my usual scrappy mojo).
But then, with BoBunny cutest ever Little Wonders collection I made a nice multiphoto layout and as for the staff? They are not scrappers, so they just adored it even with the blurry photos.


 I arranged this layout over the wooden 12*12'' stand and there is an option to hang it on the wall too.
This is a totally classic scrapbook layout in a totally classic  style: cardstocks, few photos, title, sub- title, few paper embellishments and a lot of smiles.
I think, and you can connect with it if you feel the same way, that the classic and non Mixed Media scrapbooking is still the best.
When you have a pretty scrapbooking collection with some stickers, dies and photos you don't need to hide the smallest possible photo  under dozens of paint and mediums layers.
Make your photos the stars of your layout!
Make people smiles the joy of your creations!
Go back to classic scrapbooking as we did for ages and this will be the best gift ever!


 And now some close- ups to this page:

Fussy Cutting Layering with Elena

Fussy_Cutting_Layout_Sunshine_Bliss_Elena_Sep14_Image1.JPGHello BoBunny Friends,
It's my turn to share with some fussy cutting ideas for your layouts.


Well I do love using fussy cutting for my projects and normally it's a good way to start fussy cutting if you don't have any ideas or not sure what to start with. So actually it's quite a simple way to create embellishments for your your projects in advance.

Mostly I am busy with fussy cutting the flowers, they are always good for adding the depth too.
But in practice you can fussy cut everything you like in the patterned papers - the frames, the bottles with the flowers, the banners and alphas

The fussy cut elements look great on mixed media background. For my layout I used gesso, then applied the glitter paste using the stencil and used the spray mist for some color too.

Mixing the fussy cut flowers and the colors made with the paste and stencil work great together, but you can easily add the dimensional flowers  - it's a focal flower cluster - to make the accent on different embellishments.

Fussy Cut Autumnal Gifts with Stay A While

Hello everyone, Katherine here with some Autumnal thank you gifts - and our focus this week is on fussy cutting, so I have had a play with a couple of different ways.


The Stay Awhile paper range has a really beautiful homey feel and the Cup a Joe stamp set co-ordinates perfectly.

To make my gift box - perfect for a bag of coffee, coffee beans or little pods I used the WRMK 3 in 1 punch board to make a 4" square box.


I love this board as you can make so many different things with it, envelopes, bows, boxes, file tabs and the little booklet is packed with ideas.

To decorate the box I layered up a couple of the cards using fussy cutting to add dimension.  The cards are the perfect size for the 4" box.

As a fun decoupage element I stamped the hot drink cup on a few different sheets of paper, and then again used foam dots to layer up the pieces and make a feature element for my projects.


For sweet treats I used a glassine envelope  and some scalloped circles with pearlescent dots and a BoBunny doily and one of my cups.


Again I used the mug as the focal point on my card, tucking behind some of the sticker pieces, wood veneers and a few of the little houses in this range.  A little bit of sparkle from some emerald glitter paste and jewels, and the perfect sentiment from the Expression stamps.


I hope you've enjoyed the projects, here is a list of the items that I have used.
