Stay Awhile - Over-sized Layered Tag Trio with Katherine






Hello Everyone, Katherine here with a trio of tags made with the gorgeous Stay Awhile collection.  I love the color combinations in these papers and the designs are beautiful.  Truly a well designed "all occasion" line with warm and cozy feel.



Here are all three tags layered together, they are all 6 by 4" and can be used on presents, cards, a scrapbook page, or a decorative seasonal shadow box.



I used the damask side from the new chocolate brown damask paper as the base for this tag, then layered up the Together paper - both the blue and the rust side (the blue just pops with the colours in this collection).  I also used one of the sticker strips down the edge, and some of the purple sticker banner.  In this collection are several beautiful houses that you can cut out and add to your projects and I made this the focal point, then added lace, buttons and a doily to complete all the layers.



I did add a little wash of white gesso behind my central mounts and lots of brown ink around the edges of the papers.



 For the next tag I started with Relax as the base, and used a mixture of the papers and stickers.  I cut out the mugs from the Warm paper and layered them together on foam pads.  I used several of the sticker ribbon strips - the roses and little line of coffee cups.



I used the large polka dot side of the new Damask Double Dot paper as the base for this tag, layering up a mixture of Relax and Together, then cutting out the journal card "Warm and Cozy" - I finished this with some of the Pearlescents in butterscotch and I cut out a little bouquet of flowers to add to the corner.



I love how all the colours work in this collection and there are lots of elements that you can cut out and use too.

Thanks for checking out the blog today!

Skidor Och Sol (Ski And Sun) by Ulrika Wandler

Hi! Ulrika here on the BoBunny Blog today to show you this winter themed layout using the cool and crisp Winter Playground Collection. These photos were taken after a fresh snow, making the title Winter Wonderland very appropriate.

These pictures of my boys in their warm winter gear matched perfectly with the papers.

I painted the wooden shapes with a thin layer of gesso. After drying I applied some Glitter Paste for an additional frosty textured look.

Decorative Tea Dispenser and Gift Tag Set - with Irit

Hello my Dear Crafty Friends and welcome to my new BoBunny post.

It's Irit here today with a cute and easy to make BoBunny project.

This month we are going to share some projects made with BoBunny basic products, such as Double Dot cardstock, flowers, jewels, stamps, stencils, dies and mediums.

So my first project is this easy to make and lovely tea dispenser and it was made with all possible BoBunny Basics and essentials.  .And I also added a small gift tag made with the same Double Dot paper as a fun add-on to this project.



There are tons of full of step by step tutorials for this type of  project, so I just took the sizes and , changed it up a bit and made it my own way. Three colors of Double Dot cardstocks were used to make the basic box and then another layer was added with glitter paste and stencils and the third layer was added with stamping and heat embossing.  Lots of fun to play with all these techniques!

The front title is also made with glitter paste and BoBunny stencil.

This is the front side with the slit for tea bags.











 The backside is here:



And both left and right sides were made with the same stencil and the same stamp set:




 The lid was embellished with a nice embellishment cluster made with one doily die cut, some BoBunny flowers and lace and some BoBunny chipboard pieces.




 And now the  tag: it was made with the same cardstock colors and other BoBunny flowers and die cuts. This tag was made with three nested tag BoBunny die cuts that are just in the perfect size for the small gift tag.







Thanks for dropping by the BoBunny Blog today!

See you next time!

Handmade Cards with a Masculine Twist. . . . with Elena



Hello BoBunny Friends,

Today, It's me Elena, on the blog and ready to share with you a bunch of masculine cards I made using Essentials collections by BoBunny.



Essentials_Cards_Elena_feb21_photo1.jpg


Well, I guess that many people are struggling with their creativity when it comes to making the cards for the men in your life.  What to do for Cards for Him?  I feel that way too...it seems much easier to add flowers and pretty stuff than use other embellishments.


Essentials_Cards_Elena_feb21_photo2.jpg

So I started thinking what I can do, and in the end I created four cards, each with their own distincly, not "feminine" look.

Essentials_Cards_Elena_feb21_photo3.jpg

  Initially I started mixing the patterns from the Double Dot collections. I took Chevron, Vintage and Dot packs and ... mixed them , it was fun and easy to do.

I also created the layers using the dies, mostly Selfie Dies.

However I also added Dreamcatcher Laser Cut chipboard that I painted a bit with acrylic paints and the powders.

To finish my cards I also added the brads and the jewels.

I like adding stitching to my cards, and when it comes to male cards you can do it with any thread colors.

And so. .  .Ta Da!!!!  Here are my finished cards, for the men and boys in your life, and even the ladies too!  Who doesn't love getting a thoughtfully handmade card!!!

Upcycled Mini Wallet Fold Tag Album featuring Charmed with Ginny



Hello there friends!  I've got a bit of a recycling project for you today. I have created a wallet fold mini album with the packaging from an online order and the gorgeous Charmed collection from BoBunny.  I've made this style of mini in the past and been frustrated at the bulkiness of  cardstock I used for the base.  But I found a great solution to this when I unboxed a package and the "filler" paper was just the perfect thinness to be creased well and not get poofy when folded. I simply cut it down to a 12 x 12 inch piece and it was just perfect!




Since this scrapbook is a mini I was able to use the gorgeous cut apart to be the focal image.  I added Double Dot Jewels, fussy cut images, and a few flowers and trim to finish off the front cover.

 Inside the mini there are pockets to hold tags. There is room for pictures and mementos to be tucked in with the tags so this would make a really thoughtful gift. The tags are topped with a bit of trim to coordinate with the outside. 



 The pockets are lined with companion papers. Not only doe this give the pocket a nice finished look but adds sturdiness. The tags have sentiments from the sticker sheet.



The outside pockets have tabbed topped tags with more of the fussy cut images. The back is for photos and journaling.

The outside tags are similar but different for a nice coordinated look.



Please enjoy this process video I've prepared for you on how I created this mini album....
