Mix & Match Layouts

Alright BoBunny fans, we have a challenge for you! We are mixing and matching this week on the blog! So it's time to test your BoBunny knowledge, can you look at these layouts and name all the collections the designer has mixed and matched?? No Cheating! Ready go!

Remember - by Megan Gourlay

One of the things I love about scrapbooking is being able to mix and match different collections and brands.  Today I'm sharing a layout I have done of my Mum when she was about 5-6yrs old during the time she was Highland Dancing, and I've used The Avenues, Enchanted Garden and Somewhere in Time.  The muted shades of aqua, grey and cream work so well together I think!

I've randomly stamped on my background paper with an archival ink because its waterproof, and then used my fingers to blend together pearlescents and glitter paste!

I've also used those gorgeous pearlescents to create the 'pearl' centres on my flowers and then added a lot of fussy cutting from various patterned papers to create a cluster of elements.  Some elements are popped up to create depth.  I have journaled behind my photo some of the stories Mum has told me about her days dancing, those stories need to be kept!

Patterned Paper: Spellbound / Enchanted Garden; Antiquity, Chrononaut, Timeless / Somewhere in Time; Clocks, Doors, Stripe, Trellis / The Avenues

Everyday Life Layouts Round 3

This is what we like to call round 3 of everyday life. So many precious moments captured and preserved!

Let Me Take A Selfie by Lynn Shokoples

When I saw the theme for Everyday Life I immediately thought of my daughter Nicole and her rescue pup Jackson. Almost daily she sends me a selfie of the two of them. I smile and laugh at the fun she has. I'm beginning to think  that the dog knows when the camera comes out and smiles. I think he is getting use to selfies!! When I saw the "My Buddy" patterned paper from the Happy Tails collection,with the three photo frames I thought it was perfect for a few of the selfies. I did a mix of the Happy Tails and Modern Miss collection for my project. They both had such fun elements I could use. I love that BoBunny's collections mix and match so well. For the strips I did a combination of paper from the 6x6 paper pad and bits of washi tap and border strips from the Combo Stickers. For the title I combined the stickers from both the collections, I thought it made the title "pop".

I cut into the patterned paper and tucked the photo under the printed embellishments for more depth. Some stamping and some chipboard pieces finished off the frames.

Buttons are the best little embellishments to tuck by photos or to just group them together and make a cluster on your page. The Modern Miss 12x12 chipboard had all the days of the week, so I randomly placed them around my layout.

Patterned Paper: Fur Fashion, My Buddy, Paw Prints/ Happy Tails

The Usual by Irene Tan

I love capturing photographs of everyday life surrounding me. This is one that happens very often. Chloe and her grandma would fall asleep in the car whenever they are on a car trip. This is such a precious moment captured on film. I've used the "Somewhere In Time" collection in a feminine way to showcase this photograph.

This Is My Everyday by Romy Veul

Sometimes I can be really envious of our cats, as they spend most of their hours eating, drinking and sleeping and don't have to care about much else than those three things. When I found out about the theme of today's blogpost, I immediately knew I wanted to make a lay-out about our cats' good life. Happy Tails is still one of my favourite collections, as it's perfect for scrapping my pets. I used both the wonderful papers and some of the coordinating embellishments from this collection. 

I thought the new wood frame with the text 'This is my everyday' suited the theme "Everyday life" really well. I used it to frame our cat Beertje and clustered most of my embellishments around the frame to make my photo the main focus of this lay-out. The other embellishments that I used on this lay-out include the 12 x 12 chipboard pieces, a layered chipboard sticker, a wood film strip and a cat from the Noteworthy pack.

Misc Me scrapping is the perfect solution for all your everyday life photos! Our everyday life is worth scrapping, and with a 12 x 12 system you can fit tons of photos!

As my summer comes to a close, I enjoy adding more everyday photos to my Misc Me 12"x12" album.  Soon the hustle and bustle of school time will be upon us, and I want to capture the relaxed feeling of these fleeting days before they're gone!

Apricots and Teaparties by Keri Babbitt using Madeleine Collection

This summer was our first with a large apricot tree, so several of our days were filled with picking, bottling, and gifting apricot preserves.  Of course, that also meant that multiple tea parties were a MUST, so we could cook with and enjoy our fruity bounty.

I had a lot of photos for this two-page spread, so the products I used are minimal but lovely.  The new Madeleine collection was a great match with its pinks, oranges, and greens.  I loved adding a hint of mixed media with the gorgeous new stencils, sprays, and inks from BoBunny.

I stenciled with the sugar ink pad, topped and blotted with Glimmer Spray in Tutu.  After I removed the stencil, I spritzed on a bit of Mint Glimmer Spray, and finished off the look with gold thread.  I adore this layered look!  For a final touch of dimension, I layered chipboard over the top of the page protectors.

Week 22 By Bernii Miller

I love to record my everyday life, and even more so now that BoBunny have their very own 12 x 12 Misc Me range. I love their pocket page formats and the pocket cards are of a very high quality, so you are able to ink, mist and even watercolour them if you wanted and they will not warp! 

I used the Primrose collection cards and teamed them with the brand new release Romance, Captured and In life Alpha stamp sets. They are so versatile and I was able to use them through out the spread. I also used the brand new release Double Dot - Licorice Ink Pad.

Then to add a cohesive look across my week I used some glitter glue to decorate the cards in parts of the pattern and then used a fine tip black pen to outline boarders on each of the cards.

We are just loving this every day life theme! It is so fun to learn something new about the design team. Enjoy these fun layouts from Maria, Kaori, and Juliana! Could you create a page about the same things as any of these ladies?!

Everyday Routine by Maria Potapovich (mellpellmell)

Ahaha, my everyday life! My everyday life - is daily routine, even though it sounds very boring.
And every day my face looks that way - I do try to smile, but my eyes are closing themselves because I terribly want to sleep.

Fuss and a huge amount of work in progress, the cries and noise, the constant haste mail and e-mails, the Internet and the usual household chores - that's what my everyday life is!

Coffee Layout by Kaori Fujimoto

I love coffee. I drink it every day.
I did not like it very much when I was a girl. But I was a veterinary medical student, studying for the national examination, I started drinking coffee to shake off my drowsiness. Now, coffee has become indispensable to my life.

I added  a little blue ink and white gesso to give a fresh feeling.

Cut some Balloons from "Balloons" paper and to add a three-dimensional effect, I adhered them using double sided foam tape.

As you can see from my journaling, I started running this past May. It has become a part of my weekly routine, as I run 3 times a week to keep in shape. The regular exercise has done a world of good for me in more ways than one and I plan to continue doing it.

I took all of these photos using my iPhone and I have been posting them on Instagram to keep track of my running routine. I thought it would be fun to select some of these photos and create a layout to help record my running and why I started. I selected one photo from each month since I started running, so these represent May through August.

The color of my shoes inspired me to use the Modern Miss collection for this layout. I embellished it with a combination of chipboard, Noteworthy, stickers and brads from the collection. I also included some of the new Kraft Wood Shapes to continue the theme of photographing and recording my running.

Monday Tutorial - Altered Clock

Being crafty is not an easy task. Every day life consists of taking the most ordinary products and turning them into beautiful creations.

Today we have a quick fix for those clocks in your home that you have been meaning to beautify!

An Enchanted Clock - by Megan Gourlay

Its not secret that I love to alter things, taking something, anything really and giving it a new purpose in life.  Today I thought I would share how to turn a perfectly ordinary clock into something beautiful, in a few quick and easy steps.

Step 1:

Remove all the pieces that make up the clock, and carefully set aside.

Step 2:

Use the glass cover of the clock face as your template.  Pick out part of the design from your chosen piece of paper, set your glass template over it, draw your circle and cut it out.


Step 3:

Adhere the paper circle onto your clock face and reattach all the pieces of the clock back together.

Step 4:

At this point you need to decide how you want to decorate the outside of the clock.  I have fussy cut the lily's and adhered them to the base of my frame to begin my cluster of elements.

Step 5:

Fussy cut any further images from your patterned papers and layer them together with some blossoms until you have the effect you want.

Designer Tip:
Curl your paper elements to give them more definition and shape so that they look like they 'flow' over the side rather than remaining flat.

Step 6:

Once you are happy with placement you can stick things down - I have used a strong tacky adhesive to hold all of my elements down, Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive.

Stand back admire your work of art and then decide who the lucky recipient will be :)

BoBunny Supplies:
Patterned Paper: Enchanted Garden, Pixies / Enchanted Garden
Blossoms: Plum Purple Daisy, Plum Purple Pansy
