Serendipity Mini Album-with Solange


Hello BoBunny fans!!! It's Solange Marques here!
Today I'll share with you more one project using the fabulous Serendipity collection!
I've made a Mini Album with a nicely decorated cover and page inserts:





This collection is so sweet and romantic, then I've added some lace flourishes and flowers on the cover.  You can also see a few3 little metal found pieces and fussy cuttings of some of the page elements that I just love.






Now for a peek at some of the inside pages.  Some have pockets for memorabilia and keepsakes, and some are waterfall pages so you can have and view lots of images in one view.






















Hope you like my creation!

Designer's Choice-Serendipity and Pentart with Ayumi

Hello BoBunny friends!! It's Ayumi here.

Today I will introduce mixtmedia layout I made with BoBunny Serendipity collection and Pentart products.

[You're beautiful] mixtmedia layout  By Ayumi Iwashita




Photography:Studio Petit Pas







Let me show you how to make it.
First, prepare white paper which is water resistant.
I will put a glimmer mist there.
Overall spread in the mist of water.

Next, prepare the frame.





Coating the frame all over with the white gesso, and when it is dry, brush on the Glimmer Spray.



I painted the Tutu and Mint Glimmer Spray colors with the brush in the same way.




When the mist dries, I spread a bit of these three Pearlescents in strategic spots for extra shine.




Next, I will decorate using pictures and pattern paper. 




Then I paint with different colors of Pentart Delicate Acrylic Paint.









Add 3D Balls and 3D Powder to give a few small patches of texture.



Then I sprayed Mint Glimmer Spray on the 3D textures.




Finally it is completed with well placed touches of stamping!



Thanks for joining me today.



Enjoy your scrappy day!

"My SUN"-a mini book


Hi there, it's Angela here and I'm very proud to be with you for another year of fun and crafts!
My project today is a mini album dedicated to my son Francesco and I've chosen the BoBunny Down by the Sea collection because it has lots of blueish colors, perfect for a boy project.

My Sun Mini Album by Angela Tombari using BoBunny Down by the Sea Collection

It's basically a one sheet mini album, , yes just one sheet of paper and bunches of little bits and pieces to make up the embellishment on the album.

Particularly, I've taken the 12 x 12 Down by the Sea Cardstock, cut it into 3 stripes of 4 inches height and scored each stripe at 4 inches again.

I folded each stripe like an accordion and glued them back to back.

It was a pity to waist the inner parts of the cardstock, so I fussy cut all the mermaids and I ended up with a bunch of them. I didn't want to use them for a boy theme, but I will incorporate them in future projects for sure!

Then, I made the cover with a strip of acetate wrapped around the mini.

On the front I sewed a beautiful button and a gold elastic on the back. Inside the elastic I put a charm made of a couple of shells, something I found in my stash, that helps opening and closing the mini.

Many of the pages are embellished with BoBunny Gold Pearlescent around the wreaths. That gives a precious effect to the photo and lights up the project with a beautiful visual effect.

To give variety to the mini I filled in some of the pages with embellishments as you can see above.

I also included a 'shaker page' filled in with gold and aqua sequins.

I leave you with a short video where you can see a walk-through of the entire album.

Angela

Life in Color-"Documented" Greeting Cards-with Ginny

Hey there BoBunny Peeps! I was pretty happy to see Designers Choice as our theme for this week. I got out all the collections I've been wanting to play with and narrowed it down to Life in Color.  I really loved the natural images paired with the industrial paper patterns. Such a great combination!

I created greeting cards that would be great for any occasion....and for anyone I think.

Documented Greeting Card by Ginny Nemchak for BoBunny using Life In Color Collection

This little fawn image just makes me all kinds of happy. So sweet. It was part of the cut apart sheet and had the gorgeous frame already on it!

Documented Greeting Card by Ginny Nemchak for BoBunny using Life In Color Collection
There might be a limit to the amount of patterned paper layers you can add to a card...but I don't think I've ever reached it yet. Adding a border of chocolate brown helps to keep the patterns separate as well as spacers between the layers.

Documented Greeting Card by Ginny Nemchak for BoBunny using Life In Color Collection
It seemed like a fine idea to give this little fawn a garden of flowers to be resting in. I've also included some vintagy trimmings and Double Dot Jewels.

Stay Fierce Greeting Card by Ginny Nemchak for BoBunny using Life In Color Collection

OMGoodness this owl has the most beautiful eyes! We get lots of owls here as we live in the country and I love them so much!

Stay Fierce Greeting Card by Ginny Nemchak for BoBunny using Life In Color Collection

These funky urban style papers are really cool and the warm rich colors are just perfect to match the blue frame on the cut apart.

Stay Fierce Greeting Card by Ginny Nemchak for BoBunny using Life In Color Collection

BoBunny has such a great selection of flowers that are stylized.....they don't look like your average everyday flower..they have way more pizzaz. I added more of the Jewels to this card as well...but went for the blingy ones instead of the pearl ones in the first card.


Both of these cards measure 6 x 6 inches and the insides are finished with coordinating paper patterns.


Okay that's all for me. Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

Weekend Adventures Travel Journal with Katherine


Hi BoBunny Fans, as the summer is under way I wanted to share with you my travel journal, it was a great little project that I could take away with me and meant I was able to scrap in my tent!

Katherine Sutton - Sunshine Travel Journal

Sunshine Travel Journal by Katherine Sutton using BoBunny Weekend Adventures

I made the book before I went and purposely kept the front cover clean and simple, so it was easy to store and nothing would get knocked off on it's travels.  I also had a go at some coptic binding.


Sunshine Travel Journal by Katherine Sutton using BoBunny Weekend Adventures

It's fairly straight-forward - the hardest part was sewing the covers on.  To make the covers I used some cereal box type card, and then covered it in paper.  I cut 7 papers to be 10 by 8", scored them in the middle (so my pages are 5 by 8") and added little pin-prick holes at 1",2",3" then 5",6" and 7" with a pokey tool.  With Coptic binding you tend to add 4 papers together into what makes a signature and bind them all together, as the BoBunny paper is nice and thick I only used one piece of paper for each signature.  The best bit about  this sort of binding is that you can very easily lay your book flat as you work.

Sunshine Travel Journal by Katherine Sutton using BoBunny Weekend Adventures

For my opening page I have a little pocket for receipts, tickets and other little bits from our travels, and then my first photo is our camp.  I haven't used much mixed media in this project because I was in a tent, but the pearlescents were a perfect embellishment to take with me.

Sunshine Travel Journal by Katherine Sutton using BoBunny Weekend Adventures

You can see the stitching down the centre of the page from the binding.  The Good Vibes paper has lots of phrases on it, and they feature throughout my journal.

I also had lots of fun including lots of the icon stamps in my journaling - perfect for planners and journals alike.

I created a triangular pocket so that I could keep some of the leaflets about the area in my journal.

I used one of the cloud dies from the Fly Away die-set and added little gems to make rain drops....the weather wasn't perfect but we made the most of it!

I pre-made these journal spots using the chevron 6" pad before we left - I just picked out some colours that went with the papers.

I also added lots of stamped embellishments which I made before we left using the Woodland Critter stamp set.  I stamped and embossed them on watercolour card and then gave them a wash of colour

I think the bear is my favourite!

More bears in the form of the Bear Necessities die, and also some stamping from the Captured Stamp set - I cut out the This Week part and added it to one of the Noteworthy tags.

I hope you've enjoyed a little tour of my Travel Journal - it is a lovely project to take away with you and build up as you go - everything I needed fitted in a 12" box, and if you have a small photo printer then you can add the photos as you go.
