Genevieve Card & Decor!


Welcome friends! Have you seen BoBunny's new stencils yet? They are so beautiful and very easy to work with...and now in a NEW 6x8 size! 


Today we have a card made with the Starling Stickable Stencil and our new gorgeous ‘Genevieve’ collection. The Blueberry Glitter Paste on the Blueberry Double Dot background is complimentary and beautiful. 
 How adorable are these glittered birds?! The birds were done using the bird part of the stencil, then cut out and adhered with foam squares. A perfect way to add a little bling to anything!

The Genevieve collection is such a gorgeous, crisp collection and so fun to work with . This little teapot is perfect for an accent at any occasion, or a lovely home decor item!


Thank you for stopping by! We can't wait to see what you create with this beautiful collection!

Plates with Pizzazz!



Hello BoBunny's! Today we are super excited to show you a fun and easy way to make your own custom party plate tower!


These are easy and fun! All you need is clear plastic (or glass) plates, mod podge, and a few plastic cups, beautiful BoBunny paper of your choice, (a patterned paper is best) and a pair of scissors! Start off by placing your plate on top of your paper, back side of paper facing up, and tracing around it. Then, cut out circle, leaving about a 1/2 inch around the line so you have room for mistakes. 


Then, measure from the top of the plate to where the base of the plate starts. Next, cut slits every inch all around the circle. This is so when you glue the paper down it lays flat and doesn't wrinkle. Now get your mod podge ready! Brush a thin layer of mod podge all over the plate. Then center your paper on the plate and push the paper down onto the plate, removing any air bubbles. Do this starting with one tab at a time. Let dry, then brush about 4 more layers of mod podge over the top of the paper. Be sure to let each layer dry in between!
 

Then take your scissors and cut the paper around the edges of the plate to be flush with the plate.

Next, take your cups and hot glue desired plate bottom to bottom of cup and stack as desired!


 These plates are so adorable and versatile! You can stack them for a tower, use them as back drops for decor, or even have them on their own to add height!


They are a fun way to add that special touch to any occasion!

What Do You Do In The Summertime?


Hello everyone! We hope you've enjoyed seeing what our designers do in the summer time this week! But we still want to know.....What do you do in the summer time? Do you go on vacation, swim in the ocean, work in your garden, have BBQ’s, or maybe craft? Today we have made two cards to celebrate things we do in the summer time!


The first card is a fun summer at the beach card! It is made with our delicious Boardwalk collection and it represents the things we enjoy about the beach!


The card is cut on a diagonal to reveal little surprises inside the card!

I made an inside pocket to tuck a gift card or some cash into for your favorite person…maybe they will take you for an ice cream cone on the boardwalk?


The second card is celebrating someone in your life who you enjoy spending time with; relaxing and talking, going for long walks on warm summer nights etc. The collection used is the beautiful Penny Emporium.


The card front is acetate and it makes for a beautiful full view of the inside of the card while still embellished on the outside!


Layering the flowers on the inside and the outside of the card gives it great dimension! Thank you for stopping by! We hope you are enjoying your summer....don't forget to scrap about it and share it on our Facebook page!

What Do You Do In The Summertime? The Beach!


Wish Upon A Starfish by Tracee Provis

My favourite season of the year is Summer, there is nothing better than the sun on your face and the sound of the Ocean in the background. We are lucky to get a beach holiday every year and it is thoughts of these trips that inspired me to create this Summer Beach themed wall-hanging.

I used a piece of watercolour paper to create my background on, first I sprayed Frost Glimmer Spray and the Star stencil from the Cascade set. I then took some Blueberry ink and stamped and embossed using the pebble texture stamp from the Wall To Wall Texture set. After this was dry I used another Stickable Stencil, this time from the Brocade set, and stencilled my text on with Frost Glitter Paste. By using the blue colours and various mediums I was ale to create a whole palette of different blue hues.
I chose the Happy title from the Noteworthy pack in the Boardwalk Collection, the sand print design really does look like sand its so cool. And of course it wouldn't be a each without a seagull, this was fussy cut and I added him to the top of my wooden sign.

I cut apart the plank sheet of paper from the Boardwalk 6 x 6 pad, giving it some irregular wood like shapes on the ends of each plank, I used small dots of Chocolate Pearlescents on the ends and when dried they look like the small rivets you often find in wood planks.
I added more pieces from the Noteworthy Pack and the delightful little oar from the Layered Chipboard pack, a little gauze added to the beachy feel of the project.
Boardwalk has to be one of my Bo Bunny all time favourites!

What Do You Do In The Summertime.....Collect Moments!

 Welcome to the BoBunny blog today! This week on the blog we are looking at what we do in the summertime, and for me summertime is all about spending time with my two favourites in the world, my children!

Collect moments not things - layout by Bernii Miller


 So at the end of last Summer here in Australia I organised a photoshoot with a dear friend of mine and was so over the moon when she managed to capture this precious photo of myself hugging and laughing with my children. 
  
  
I used the super sweet Garden Journal collection to showcase this summertime memory of mine, as the colours worked so well with the black and white photo. And let's be honest!! How could I not centre that awesome Misc Me journal card as the title to my layout :) 


The layout came together so easily and I love the soft feel the colours give to the overall feel. To help spread the doily across the top and bottom ha;f of the layout, I simply cut in half a medium doily and then adhered it to the top and the bottom of the clusters. I also decided to add a decorative edge to the doily with my Coral Pearlescents.

  
Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today and I hope that you have found some inspiration to capture your summertime memories.

What Do Yo Do In The Summertime? Everything!


JUST IN!!!! 
Do you want to be one of the first to get your hands on these brand new party products? 


 If so, head on over to www.zulily.com starting Monday, July 27th through Wednesday, July 29th but only while supplies last so don't wait too long :) 


Good Morning Everyone! Our theme this week is "What do you do in the summertime?". Well I know one thing for certain, here in Canada, summer is short, so we fit in as much as we can! So today I would love to share with you some of the things that my family does.

Find Your Paradise by Lynn Shokoples

Find Your Paradise by Lynn Shokoples for BoBunny featuring the Boardwalk Collection

 I started off by making a cover for my 12x12 Misc. Me binder. I used one of the 12x12 patterned sheets from the collection along with some of the Noteworthy pieces. Then I tucked in some of the Pocket Squares from the collection. I wanted a fun and bright cover for my album. The border stickers from the Combo Sticker Sheet helped hold the cover in place.


For my pockets, I used the cards from the Journal Contents pack. So many fun ones to choose from! Then the fun begins of decorating each card. I wanted to keep a theme on my photos so I used the letter stickers from the Combo Sticker sheet to make words about some of the activities we do in the summer. Then came the Noteworthy pieces which get tucked here and there. Now out came the layered chipboard.. oh my... how cute are those pieces? I loved the pockets squares, so I made one card using six of them!! The quotes were just too sweet and I wanted to use them all. I finished off with some stamping using the Captured Stamp Set.

 Pocket scrapping is such a fun way of doing a whole bunch of little layouts in one project. I look at each card as a mini layout. How do you do your pocket pages?

See what I mean by those little pockets squares with the sayings on them? Just perfect for summer fun photos.


Using multiple elements help give your cards dimension and lots of fun things to look at.
