A weekend with " NSD layouts"

Helllooooo

Well I managed to play along this year for National Scrapbooking Day a tiny bit ( wish I had more hours in the day )  and I managed to whip up this layout for one of the challenges over in the Scrappy Canary VIP lounge on facebook.  This was for the recipe challenge where I needed to use at least 2 different pattern papers, wood veneer, enamel dots and washi tape.

This was just a super fast layout that I managed to get together and I really wanted to make the effort to use up as much pattern paper that I could. Then while I had this gorgeous Serendipity collection out on my table I also decided to try and play with the sketch challenge using the same products..

A weekend with " Kindy Grad - mini album"

Helloooo

Welcome to another Monday.. Can you believe that it is almost half way through the year.. oh lordy!!!

So I am on a little mission at the moment to try and finish up my UFO scrapbooking projects that have been looking at me and taunting me to finish them.. The winter is finally starting to settle in here Australia so I am spending more time indoors - so I have no excuse really to get into my room and try to do some catching up. 

So I started with this BoBunny mini album that I teamed with the Sweet Life collection. I just adore this collection.. with all its sweet florals and pretty butterflies it is super girly !! 

I decided to make a whole mini album of my daughter's Kindy graduation from 3 years ago. It was a really big moment in Abigail's tiny life and I had taken way to many photos to only create a layout. So a mini album it was.

The gorgeous 6 x8 album that I used has these amazing gold foil dots that shimmer and make you want to touch it .. a lot .. ha ha ...

To match the gold dots I used the brand new BoBunny Foil Transfers which just rubbed so easily onto the fabric spine of the album. They are exactly like rub ons - only they are gold foiled so they really shine.

Throughout the album I matched the papers with my beloved Bobunny blossoms.. I honestly never get tired of using them on my projects and especially now with all the glitter paste pots BoBunny has made.. I am now applying the glitter to the petals and so loving the look.

I used the Sweet Life - Misc Me , Journal Cards to cut out the mini butterflies. I wanted to scatte as many tiny ones through out the album and they were the perfect size on the cards.

Phew.. Well thanks so much for stopping by today .. I know that was rather photo heavy, but I am super happy with how the album turned out that I just had to snap what seems like a million piccies.. 

Please if you like the look of this collection make sure you check out your LSS or online store and ask for the "Sweet Life" collection by BoBunny ♥  

Thanks so much for stopping by

A weekend with " Love layout for Couture Creations DT"

# couturecreations

Hello there!! 
 Today I am  sharing a layout I created with the gorgeous new Hearts Ease collection that has just been released from Couture Creations. This collection is just stunning with its gorgeous hues of purple and greens and sweet little violets tucked into pretty bouquets. 

So today I wanted to share with you how I created this "Love " layout using the new papers, stamps and some of the new dies. 


So I wanted to use the Victorian Square nesting die as a platform to create and build some clusters on . So once I cut out the die , I used a 0.1 fine tip black pen to dot on an outline. I then cut in into a 1/3 and 2/3 piece. You will see a little later where I place these.

I then wanted to add some fun dimension to the layout so grabbed a few of the new Bulk White Flowers which I then coloured with some colour shine. These flowers take the mist so beautifully and hold the colour so well.

I also find that scrunching and pinching the leaves while they are still either wet or damp really helps to also keep the flowers looking fuller.

I flipped through the Hearts Ease 12 x 12 paper pad to find some clusters of pansies that I could fussy cut to help layer underneath the white flowers that I coloured above.

Then I could not resist creating some sweet butterflies to layer on my layout from the Hearts Ease Borders and Butterflies stamp set.  I simply stamped the image using some black ink and once dry, I fussy cut and then went over the wings with some Glitzin Glamour in Crystalina .

So now it is time to put the layout together and here you can see the Victorian Square nesting die below, that I cut into thirds . It is a great base to build upon.

And here is the completed layout, where I used more pieces from the new Hearts Ease collection.

A weekend wiht " Mothers Day Hoop Love"

Hellooooooo


Well Mothers day was a last weekend and I decided I wanted to create something handmade for my mother. I know deep down she loves it when I make things for her and to be honest it is also a gift I prefer to give too. Something from the heart. 

So I decided that I wanted to create and play around with a wooden hoop that I have had laying around here for a while and team it up with a photo from my current photo shoot with my children.

This project came together fast, and once I started I could not walk away .. I decided to the Lemonade Stand collection by BoBunny as the bright colours were perfect for the photo I was using. I decided though to play with my new BoBunny "Flutter" dies which have those cutest butterflies in the pack. The dies cut beautifully and the details on the wings are just so pretty.

Once I scattered all the butterflies around I wanted to somehow add some more sparkle so I pulled out the BoBunny glitter paste in silver and just by using a cotton bud I applied it to the wings.

 I also wanted to create a prettyish hanger, so I grabbed some old grosgrain ribbon and created a loop and bow to attach and glue to the top. Super easy to do .

A weekend with " Sunshine mixed with a little Hurricane"

Helloooo...



Last week on the BoBunny Facebook page I had a layout share using the super fun Forever Young collection. I have HAD so much FUN using this collection with my new photos!! They are a perfect fit and I have managed to create quite a few layouts. 

Sunshine layout by Bernii Miller using the Forever Young collection.


I based this layout mainly on this quote that I found on Pinterest one day. This totally sums up my little girl. One minute she is this little ray of sunshine and the next she is just a force to be reckoned with ! I am sure that mothers of little girls know exactly what I am talking about ..

I used my Couture Creations dies and teamed them with my Wilna Furstenburg leaf dies and I just adore them teamed up together..

A weekend with " Fancy Pants Designs Mini Album"

Hellooooo

Well well well ...

This is one of those projects that I have had around around for some time unfinished. I guess because I was working on it and then ran out of steam to finish it and it has been sitting in my scrap room looking at me for about the last 6 months or so. 

So on Sunday ( The National Scrapbooking Weekend)  I plucked up the courage and bit the bullet so to speak and finally finished off this project!! And boy I am so glad I did. I feel like I accomplished something today. 

I used the older Fancy Pants Designs Nautical Collection  as the colours and the little embellishments were just perfect for the photos that I had on hand. I also used the Fancy Pants Designs gold heart foil mini album.

So I have managed to snap some pictures and sharing them with you here now. It is quiet photo heavy so you might want to grab a warm drink as you scroll through :)
