{Cards} Bo-Bunny's "Isabella" Collection

Create these three gorgeous cards using Bo-Bunny's Isabella collection:
Pre-printed 6x6 pages maker PERFECT card starters!
 I used Inky Antic's Mother's day stamp to create this card along with chipboard pieces from the matching 12x12 Chipboard sheet (self-adhesive). 

A Sympathy card create with the collection as sophistication and beauty when paired with the Isabella pearls. 
 You can create all three of these cards in virtually no time at all when you grab a few sheets pre-printed 6x6 pages.
Chipboard embellishments like these two butterflies add dimension and interest ESPECIALLY when they have a little matching bling on them! You can check it all out at:

{Project} BoBunny's Isabella Collection

This project came together quickly for me due to the inspirational and whimsical nature of the three metal flower pieces from Maya Road. The flowers are attached to a black chipboard base, I used paper from the Isabella collection for the flower backgrounds coupled with inspirational stamped word pieces on punched labels (pop-dotted) for dramatic effect in each flower. 
Studio Calico Canvas butterflies are AWESOME and come with about a bazillion in one package-I used my  Copic Markers to color this smaller chipboard canvas butterfly in matching grey and pink tones and used the Bo-Bunny Isabella gems to enhance the butterfly even more.

 To create the center circle I added pink bling around the interior wall of the flower and also as the bow's center. I added a small chipboard butterfly from the 12 x 12 chipboard embellishment page from the Isabella collection.
And for the third and final flower embellishment I used a fussy cut butterfly on a pop-dot. I gently folded the butterfly's wings upward as if he is lifting right off of the flower. Photo corners at the bottom of the wall hanging give it a finished look. I used a border chipboard trim piece from the 12 x 12 chipboard piece across the top of the base of the piece and pink twill through holes at the upper corners tied in a bow allowing the piece to hang.

{Mini-Album} BoBunny's Isabella Collection

Create this elegant (and super easy) 4x6 mini-album using just a few papers from the BoBunny "Isabella" collection available NOW at
 1623 5th Avenue,
 Moline, IL 61265
I used two BoBunny papers with pre-printed 4x6" mini-album pages, and my Bind-it-All to create this cute mini in no time at all (and very economically). It is the perfect spot to record summer vacation memories.
 I embellished several mini-album pages using the pieces from the 12 x 12 chipboard self-adhesive sheet, and some smaller journaling tags & fussy cut pieces left from scraps of the 12 x 12 papers.
I used my scalloped oval punch to use up some of my "extra" photos (see above) that I didn't use in my family's 12 x 12 album.
You can create this mini-album, too, buy stopping by The Scrapbooking Studio and grabbing a collection of papers & a sheet of the chipboard self-adhesive pieces.

{Layout} BoBunny's Isabella Collection

 Create beautifully elegant layouts using BoBunny's newest line of papers and embellishments, "Isabella" designed with butterfly, floral and lace motifs. This collection offers diversity and great compatibility due to the muted grey and cream undertones throughout the pieces. It really allows virtually any color pictures (or black and white pics) to match with the background papers.
 I coupled Inky Antic's saying stamp with fussy cut journaling tags and paper embellishments to create three layers of butterflies, lace, and interest.
 The matching 12 x 12 chipboard sheet is self-adhesive and contains numerous sized pieces to work with including butterflies & swirls.
I love the touch of yellow that was added to some of the butterflies! Stop by The Scrapbooking Studio, 1623 5th Avenue, Moline, IL 61265 to grab the entire collection. You'll want every piece. :)
