Hello again, Nicole here and I am back to share this woody tag I made to show off the Sizzix Evergreen die.  I love to get the most out of my dies and think of different ways I can use them.  I love to create layers and texture along the way. I spritzed watercolor paper water then sprayed Ranger Distress Spray Stain peeled paint, lucky clover and twisted citron.  I cut the greens from the tattered pinecone die and added a few forest moss Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock greens too.  Then I glued them all to a piece of matboard then ran it through on the Evergreen die.  Creating this 3D Tree. I stamped the Kraft tag with using picket fence distress paint then inked the edges with ground espresso.  With some scrap inked up watercolor paper I cut out “Moments” from the Handwritten Journey Thinlit.  I used this Idea-Ology Flashcard trimmed…

Hi everyone!  It’s Kelly Klapstein here to share my layout based on our March Sketchy challenge. Here is the sketch: I used the gorgeous paper collection called “Soiree” by BoBunny. These papers are perfect for my daughter’s photo because she adores all things vintage and retro. I used my Brother ScanNCut to create the title, including the hand lettered ‘Hello,’  which is a cut file I designed myself. I also outlined the “Sweet Sixteen” with a Sakura white Gelly Roll pen. This dimensional flower with leaves is from the ScanNCut machine library of images. And the banner is an Impression Obsession stamp that was scanned and cut with the ScanNCut also…. no fussy cutting! I coloured the banners with Tombow Dual Brush Pens. Did you know the ScanNCut also has the ability to draw designs?  I used the drawing pens feature for the journaling. That little brown gingham…

The FabScraps booth is always so beautiful because the paper collections have a dreamy and pretty shabby chic style. There are 3 new fabulous collections: Vintage Elegance, Beach Bliss and Kaleidoscope. As its name suggest, the Vintage Elegance collection is all soft florals, pinstripes, and patterns with muted colour tones, reminiscent of timeless, vintage wallpaper. Each collection has coordinated chipboard elements, metal charms and stickers. Beach Bliss has gorgeous beach and nautical theme patterned paper, with a subtle weathered wood background image. Ahoy there matey!  Check out those big chipboard elements….the lighthouse and captain’s wheel! The youthfulness of the Kaleidoscope collection is derived from its energetic colours and geometric patterns. Cardmakers will be happy to hear about a new product addition called the ‘Carders Pack’ for each collection, which is an 8 x 8 package of 4 different paper designs, plus die cut…

Hello everyone!  It’s Kelly Klapstein here today to share some designing tips using Spellbinders® dies.  I created this vintage layout by layering Spellbinders die cuts behind my photo. I used the beautiful graphic 45 “Botanical Tea” collection, which I thought was perfect for this photo of my mom and her friends having a casual tea party back in 1953. This gorgeous Spellbinders Nestabilities® set called “Elegant Ovals” (S4-425) die cut beautifully with this cream card stock (which came in the graphic 45 paper pack) Just look at those intricate cut designs! You cannot get that result from an electronic cutting machine. I used the dies themselves to trace the same shapes from patterned paper to fit inside each Elegant Oval. All of my embellishments are either graphic 45 stickers or fussy cut from the patterned papers. I can always count on Spellbinders dies for intricate cut designs that really pop…

Today we invited a guest to our blog to share her talent as a member of BoBunny’s Design Team.  Welcome, Lynn Shokoples! Hi Everyone! My name is Lynn Shokoples and I live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I’ve been married for almost 30 years, have two wonderful young adult children and two wild rambunctious puppies!! They all keep my life interesting and full of laughs. I’ve been scrapbooking for as long as I can remember, even back in the days when there was just paper, scissors and a few stickers. It’s amazing to see how the industry has grown. I love to do layouts, cards, altered projects and have recently started playing with some mixed media, art journaling and making my own digital cutting files. I’ve been blessed to be part of the BoBunny Design Team for the past two years and several others teams as well. I love meeting scrapbookers…
