Getting Big...You Rock

I know these are older papers from Cocoa Vanilla, but I still really love them for boy layouts!  We could choose some papers to design with this month for ATDML so I went with these.

I mounted my layers on the Galatic base, tearing a section from Starshine and Plus One.  I cut out several of the stars from Starshine and mounted them on foam dots at the top and had them cascading down the page to the title.  I used one of the large star stickers and then a mix of stamps and the stitched denim alphabet for the title.

Around the photo I layered up more stickers from the collection and also added in some little neuvo enamel style dots too.  There are loads of typewritten words which you can add to the labels.

This is my little cluster of embellishments.

Here are some of the stars - I tried to match up the colours when I was mounting them on top of the paper.

I hope you've enjoyed my page...there will be more :)

Birthday Cards with Summer Mood

Here are some cards that I made using Summer Mood and lots of the BoBunny essential papers.  It uses a fairly straightforward Cascading card technique.

 My first card uses the Up and Away die set with clouds and hot air balloons, I also added in some rainbows too.

 This shows you a better  view of the card and how it comes together

I then used the cupcake dies to create a birthday card packed with colour and glitter.

Treasures of Yesterday

I have really been enjoying using watercolours on my pages of late and this one is no exception.  I've used BoBunny's Once upon a Life time to scrap a heritage photo.  I started with the flourish stencil and some white gesso, once that was dry I added layers of brown, green and orange watercolour, then a bit of stamping too - so lots of layers of paints and ink before the papers went on.

As well as the layers of paints and inks here you can see the layers of inked doily and also some die cuts.

I used one of the stickers for my title and bit of sparkle and lace.

I added in a laser cut leaf and some of the chipboard as well as a blossom to complete my page.

Free Spirit

Hello, another page this time using the beautiful Summer Mood paper set from BoBunny, it has some lovely summery colours and I added my own watercolour twist.  I also used the WRMK flower punch to create the large scallop layers at the base of the page.  Furthermore there is a video which you can watch and shows you all the way through the process - you can find it here.

I die cut some lollipops and also the Mandala and then used watercolour paints to add some colour.

I used confetti paste to add a bit of sparkle and also cut out the globe from one of the elements papers.

My title comes from one of the cards, and I added a couple more co-ordinating lollipops to this too.

More clean and simple Twilight papers - this one with a grid pattern using lots of the papers and some of the journal cards.  Again clean and simple with a pocket for all your journalling.

I love the painted Home is wherever you are field, so I had to incorporate that into my page!

Again little clusters of embellishments to guide your eye across the page.

The perfect sized journal spot.

Again some more of that beautiful foiling and title fonts.  The next retreat is in November and if you email the shop they will be able to keep you up to date.

As well as a messy class I also like to do a clean and simple class too, so I get to see everyone!  For this class I used the new Twilight collection from 1canoe2, the papers are beautifully designed and all the greys meant that they worked beautifully with black and white photos, plus some beautiful gold foiling which my photos don't do just to.

Lots of layers of embellishments.

I love the little jars and the title fonts with all their foiling.

Mother - Frame using Once Upon a Lifetime

Hi, I wanted to share with you a frame with you that I made using the new BoBunny Once Upon a Lifetime collection - you can find out all the details on their blog.

I had a play with their perfect petals dies and made most of the flowers, inking and bending them and filling the centres with their double dot jewels.

The frame is also by BoBunny and is their chipboard ornate oval frame, I covered this in white gesso first and then added a mixture of tea dye distress ink and some copper metallic wax.  I also tucked in some blossoms amongst the flowers.

In this collection there is a page of plaques for parents and grandparents - perfect for a heritage page or just as a plaque at the bottom of a photo frame.

I hope you've enjoyed my project, do pop over to the Bobunny blog and have a look.
