Just want to share another Design Team Project for my local scrapbook store. I created two 12×12 layouts using the new Bo Bunny Father Christmas Paper Line. The papers in this line have a vintage feel to them so I printed my photos in sepia tone.
For the first layout I used three photos of my grandkids sitting by the Christmas tree. I cut two of the photos down to 3-1/2 x 3-1/2 and matted them on some of the red design paper. I left the other photo at 4×6 and double matted it with dark green and red design paper.
I added three of the metal snowflakes that are part of the collection to the bottom of the 4×6 photo and made sure I had Santa peeking out of the background paper by tearing the paper at an angle and distressing the edges. (click photo to enlarge)
I added some ribbon and buttons from the collection to the top of the page and a small tag at the bottom.
The next layout is very simple but I wanted to let the paper do most of the design work. I added three tags that were cut from the paper along with some stickers from the sticker sheet. I stapled some ribbon to the top of the tags and used some bling to hide my staples. (click photo to enlarge)
I double matted my photo and created a pocket for my journaling tag. I added some bling to the holly berries and some stickles to the tree that Santa is holding. I also used some glossy accents to highlight the holly leaves.

Happy Labor Day! Hope everyone is having a great holiday weekend! I love the new Bo Bunny Et Cetera Paper Collection so I was thrilled to get the opportunity to create a design team project for my local scrapbook store. I decided to create a couple of 12×12 layouts. All of the papers used are from the collection with the exception of the solid brown cardstock which is from American Crafts.
For the first layout I created a pocket and added a tag with a photo. I placed the journaling spot on the front of the pocket. I fussy cut the scalloped photo mat from the design paper and cut my photo to fit. I added the music note tag behind the scalloped photo mat. (Click photo to enlarge)
I did use my Tim Holtz distress tool to distress the edges of my tags, title, and background layers. I added some bling and buttons from the collection along with some brown satin ribbon.
For the second layout I wanted to showcase three photos. Using my threading water Fiskars Edge Punch I added a border to the top and bottom of the solid brown mat. I added another tag that I cut from the collection to the top of the page and some more buttons and satin ribbon to the bottom of the page. The three photo mats were distressed with the Tim Holtz distress tool. (Click photo to enlarge)
This paper collection is really pretty and would be great if you have some heritage photos that you wanted to scrap.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!
Happy Friday! Here is my card I created for two challenges. The first one is the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #75 A Splash of Color. For this challenge we were to use the color yellow in our project.
The other challenge is the Cricut Cardz Challenge #90 Card Crazy. For this challenge we were to make a card using the card feature from any cartridge and any color and theme. Well, here is what I came up with.
I used the Sentimentals Cartridge to create my card. I used my Gypsy so I could get it to be approximately 5-3/4 x 5-3/4 inches. I used the same cartridge to cut the blue background. I also cut the cream colored scalloped label from the same cartridge as well.
The design paper is from Crate Paper’s Toy Box Line. The yellow print mat measures 5-1/2 x 5-1/2 inches. I the layered on the blue stamp shape background piece.
I stamped my Smile sentiment on a piece of solid light yellow cardstock and layered it onto my cream colored scallop tag. I punched out a butterfly from the blue design paper. I added a prima flower with a button center and wrapped some blue twine around the side.
I added a yellow mat to the inside of the card and a small punched butterfly from the blue design paper.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a fabulous weekend!
