Stamping Memories

Hi BoBunny Fans, Today I will show you how to use your wonderful BoBunny clear Gateway stamps and some more amazing stamps!

The picture I used is one of my mom & I when was about two years old. I really treasure these pictures because I know many people who only have just one picture with their mom I think that's really sad. Luckily my mom loved taking pictures & let pictures taken with the whole family.

When I got my design team box I was so excited that I started right away and look at those amazing roses in this "Juliet" collection. I cut out all the roses and placed them on both sides of my layout it's such a great effect.

For this layout I also used the brilliant laser cut butterflies they are so detailed. I treated them with some Pearlescents & glitter paste.

Underneath the sticker "My Beloved" I used the gateway stamp. Mixed Media is so easy to do with these gorgeous stamps and don't let it get you down when the stamp isn't perfect.
Thank you so much for visiting the blog today and please get out those amazing stamps and create something lovely!

Mixed Media Memories!

Hello BoBunny Friends! Today I have a mixed media layout to share with you featuring the Heritage collection and lots of BoBunny stamps!

Memories Layout- Lisa Novogrodski

This layout features a photo of my grandfather along with his brother taken in the early 1900's. I love playing with my photos and staging them in different style layouts. I'm heavily into mixed media these days and worked up a grungy page with lots of mists, stamps and stencils. Mixed Media pages are as much about technique as they are the photo.

 First up I layered my papers with paper tearing techniques then blended the edges in with stamping. I stamped around the edges of the page and my inner papers using "To The Point" and "Stitches" stamps. I used the "Flutter" stamp all over my page in a mixed media way. Mixed Media is all about layering and stamps are a fun way to do this. Layering your stamps in a random way and then stamping over them creates interesting effects. You want to achieve the "Is it there or not there - Is that what I think it is" effect!

I love to use the Butterfly Stickable Stencils for my modeling paste. I usually use the inner design of them rather than creating a butterfly stencil.

One favorite technique I use is adding a little texture and medium to my photos to blend them into the page. I use my photos as another embellishment on my pages rather than the page being mainly about the photo.

Juliet Tag & Altered Mini Box!

I was teaching decoupage lesson in the past and when I saw this lovely new collection Juliet by BoBunny I knew I will be busy with my scissors for sometime!

Juliet Tag and altered mini box by Agnieszka Bellaidea

Not only did I cut these lovely roses I used for my tag , I am ready for another layout or two for June. I love when in every collection are some papers with busy design and I can use just elements for my cards or layouts.
Curly Q stamps are one of my favorites and this time I used them as a guide for dots made with Pearlescents.

My second little project was created using just Curly Q stamps, one single jewel, washi tape  and Pearlescent in black. Now I have a classic box for a little present.

Bright & Fun Misc Me!

Good Morning Everyone! Since it's Spring here in Canada, I couldn't wait to play with the bright fun colors in the #Forever Young Collection. It reminds me of all the beautiful colors popping out of the garden. Today I am sharing some of my Misc.Me pages and the Misc.Me White & Kraft binder using the #Forever Young Collection and the Stained Textures Stamp Set.

You're So Sweet by Lynn Shokoples

You're So Sweet Misc. Me by Lynn Shokoples for BoBunny featuring the Forever Young Collection and Stained Textures Stamp Set

For the album I cut a piece of the 12x12 paper on an angle and then added some of the fun embellishments from the Noteworthy Package. A fun way to add some fun colors to the album cover.

For my Misc. Me pages I went back to 1991 and chose some fun photos of my daughter. She was just turning 3 years old. My how time flies, my little girl is now 27!! I love doing random pages for my album of years gone past and remember all the wonderful memories.After placing my photos, I worked on each card doing some stamping with the Double Dot Pink Punch Ink before adhering the photo down. A little trick I learnt after getting ink all over a photo while stamping, lol.

After the stamping, out came the Chipboard pieces, some Noteworthy and some Layered Chipboard. I find it brightens up the cards adding that little extra something. It also gives the layout some added dimension. The Noteworthy pieces go a long way. The banner border was cut up and placed on three different cards.

All the cards came from the #Forever Young Journal Contents package. So easy and so fun picking out which cards to use.

Birthday Banner!

Hello Everyone! Today I would like to show you a fun project that I made with the beautiful 'Sentiments' clear stamps from Bo Bunny. I created a birthday banner using the lovely 'Sweet Life' collection.
This banner would be fun to hang on the wall for a birthday party or to give to someone as a gift.

Happy Birthday banner by Romy Veul

My banner consists of four tags, which are all decorated with papers from the mini paper pad, chipboard and embellishments from the Sweet Life collection. I also stamped the text 'Happy Birthday' on each tag with black ink. 

I also made sure to add some dimension to each tag by using chipboard pieces, both from the Sweet Life Chipboard package and from the Layered Chipboard set.

Wonderful Wood Shapes and Glimmer Spray!

Hi Lisa here to show you that the wood pieces can be primed and sprayed to match your projects! I decided to mix and match some wood pieces from 3 different collections for my layout. I  love the colors of the sea. The blues and greens are just so calming. With just 2 beautiful colors you can create a masterpiece.On this layout I used BoBunny's Glimmer Spray in Frost and Mint.

Layout by Lisa Gregory featuring Forever Young

The background was adhered to a piece of corrugated cardboard. I then used the Brocade Stencil and crackle paste on the background. Once it dried, I sprayed some Glimmer spray in Frost on a piece of plastic bag, then sprayed on a bit of water to water it down and pressed the bag, spay side down onto the background to achieve a watercolor effect. I did this using the Mint as well until I got the coverage I wanted. I also die cut the butterflies from the Flutter dies and sprayed them with Frost and Mint to get a variegated color.  Once they were dry, I adhered them to the background by the body only and slightly folded up the wings.

For the blossoms, I enhanced the darker blue ones with Glimmer Spray in Frost. For the lighter blue flowers, I sprayed them with Mint to change the color up a bit. I also die cut some blossoms and leaves from the Double Dot paper in Clove, then I sprayed them with the Frost and Mint
Glimmer sprays for a 2 toned effect. They dry to a gorgeous shimmer.

The wooden pieces were all primed using white acrylic paint. Once they were dry, I sprayed them with Frost and Mint. I arranged all of the pieces on my layout until I was pleased with the design and then I adhered everything down permanently. I used the stamps around the page in random spots, just for texture.
