Ad Lib!

Now for a layout using my favourite of the new Bo Bunny lines, Ad Lib!  This is such a fun line to work with :)  Well the papers are Ad Lib anyway....this layout was for the same product four designers post on the Bo Bunny blog so it was a mix of a few different collections.

I always love seeing these same product different designers challenges because I always find it so fascinating how different all the layouts come out using the same products!   It must just be my month for same product four designers because I also have a layout published in the latest Scrapbook Magazine for that particular challenge using a kit from Scrap Rat which I will upload on here in a few weeks time :)

And these were the supplies we had to use:
Ad Lib Hoopla
Ad Lib Scribbles
Ad Lib This n That
Ad Lib Cut Outs
Gabrielle Trinkets
Timepiece chipboard
Vicki B Wrap
Blast Off! buttons
Wasabi Stripe Double Dot

If you want to see the other 3 gorgeous layouts from my very talented fellow designers, you can see them here.

That's if from me for today, I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter weekend fulled with lots of sunshine :)

Timepiece layout, Ad Lib card and exciting Hybrid Class News!

Today's layout is one of my wedding photos done with the beautiful Timepiece collection!  This is only the second page I have done using my wedding photos as I only started 'proper' scrapbooking long after I was married so I had already made a scrapbook of sorts in a wedding album using bits cut out of the wrapping paper from our wedding gifts and cards etc.  I had so many other photos that needed to be scrapped that I just left the wedding photos as they were but with some of the gorgeous recent releases from Bo Bunny I just couldn't resist scrapping a few! :)

Supplies used:
Timepiece 6x6 Paper Pad
12" Timepiece Chipboard
Timepiece Clear Stamp
Timepiece Trinkets
Timepiece Combo Sticker
Timepiece Jewels
Bo Bunny Flowers
American Crafts Thickers
EK Success edge punches

This was a quick card I did using my favourite of Bo Bunny's new releases Ad Lib!  Man I love this collection it is just so bright and fun and well just plain cool! ;)  It makes me happy every time I look at it :)

Supplies used:
Ad Lib 6x6 Paper Pad
Ad Lib Pebbles
Coordinating Double Dot Ocean Dot
Ad Lib Wrap

Life's Good CS Sticker

Then some really exciting news is that if you enjoy craft classes and love Bo Bunny Gabrielle then the super talented Jessica Sprague and Heidi Swapp have put together a fabulous hybrid class for mothers day here using the stunning Gabrielle collection!  This is a little sneak peek at the class and it looks amazing!

Thanks for visiting! :)

Prince's and Forts!

A couple of layouts today, first up is one for Bo Bunny where the Focus was on stamps!  I used the Cambridge and Timepiece stamp sets which is definitely two of my favourite stamps sets along with the Gabrielle set!

Supplies used:
Blueberry Stripe Double Dot
Dark Denim Double Dot
Cambridge Crown Die Cut
Cambridge Argyle
Note Worthy Cambridge
Cambridge Newsprint Wrap
Cambridge 12x12 Combo Sticker
Cambrtidge Clearly Stamp
Timepiece Clear Stamp

The saying is taken from the More than a Princess poem by Brian Andreas at The Story People. It is a poem that I have loved for ages but of course with two little boys the Princess doesn't work so I have changed it a bit to work for my boys but still keep the beautiful meaning.

The next one was for a sketch group on UKS I am a part of using the following sketch from Inspired Blueprints
These are my kids sitting in their little Fort made out of our cream lounge suite.  We kicked ourselves a good few times for buying a cream lounge suite but it was an amazingly comfortable lounge suite with loads of cushions that was just perfect for making forts and the kids loved to take them apart and play on them!  We just had to invest in a carpet and upholstery cleaner :)
The papers are My Minds Eye Penny Lane 'Feeling Groovy' papers.

I will be back in a day or two with a layout using the gorgeous new Bo Bunny Timepiece! :) (and maybe even a couple of photos from our trip to the Lake District if I can get a bit of time to sort through the photos!)
