Bo Bunny Summer Wreath


M latest project for Bo Bunny is up on the blog

Summer Wreath by Tracee Provis

The pretty vibrant colours of this collection lead you to imagine all things summer. I knew that I wanted to create a project that celebrated this gorgeous palette and what better way to display them all, than in a wreath for you to hang on the door or in your entrance hall.

I started by taking the Kraft Canvas Pleated Lace and attaching it to a circle of corrugated cardboard, for added interest I also attached a circle of the same corrugated cardboard that I wrapped in regular household string, I love the rustic look it gives to your projects. I then cut some scalloped borders from Double Dot cardstock to create and extra layer.

I cut rosettes from lots of the different papers in the collection both in the 12 x 12 and the  6x 6 paper pad. Using a hot glue gun I fixed them in a large cluster down the right hand side and a smaller cluster over on the left. I used lots of buttons and brads to create my centres and the summer stickers from the 12 x 12 sticker sheet made the perfect title. To finish it off I fussy cut a couple of tickets and tucked them into the rosette cluster, this now hangs in my hallway for all to see as they walk in the door.

Bo Bunny Enchanted Garden

I am up on the Bo Bunny blog today to share this layout I created using the Enchanted garden Collection

As soon as I saw this pretty Enchanted Garden Collection I knew I had the perfect photo of my pretty little Granddaughter to go with it.

I started by cutting about a third of the Magic sheet off and used some gesso on the larger green side behind my photo placement, I also used the Geometric Shapes stamp set to create a little more interest to my background.
Bo Bunny have some great Washi Tape designs and I added a little of the Black & White patterned to add to the mixed media feel of the background.
I couldn't resist fussy cutting the little gnome and raising him up on foam pads to create a 3D embellishment from the Mosaic sheet.
I wanted to add in a blossom but didn't have the right colour so I simply took some white paint and glitter and voila a perfectly matching flower. For the last touch I used a couple of the large stamp sets to the edges and behind the photo for added interest.

Moving out with Pink Paislee

I am up today on the Papermaze blog with a cute little gift and card combo
This month I got some of the pretty Hello Sunshine collection by Pink Paislee to play with and because my youngest is moving out this week I decided to make a little gift for her and her boyfriend to celebrate moving into their first home together.

I used a silhouette cut file of some houses in a row but instead of cutting it I used the sketch pen feature to give the effect of a stamp. I then cut it out of patterned paper and used some of the tree pieces to give it a little touch of colour.
The little crate with the milk cartons was also a cut file that I decorated with the papers from the Hello Sunshine collection. I added some bling and the Jillibean Soup alphas that I was also sent.
I filled the boxes with a keyring each all ready for their new keys!
I used some twine to tie up the boxes and it looks really cute. I hope they like their gift.
I hope you enjoy my project and you can find all the supplies for this over in the shop
