Blog Hopping with Bo Bunny!

Saturday, 25 April 2015
Hello friends

Welcome to day 7 - the final day of the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® and Bo Bunny® hop!


It's been such a fun week with so many projects so be sure to stop by the
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog and look back on some brilliant creations.

I'm back with my project featured on Day 1 and this time I'm showing you
the inside of my tag book using the fresh and bright Forever Young papers by Bo Bunny.
I chose to devote my book to my youngest son Elliott who is no stranger to my blog...
he gets featured quite a lot!
On the first tag I attached die cuts and then affixed a metal embellishment with
Dodz - Medium, no chance of this falling off - Dodz are super sticky!


My second page attaches a photo and embellishments, speedily done with


My next page again features a heart (bit of a theme going on!)
This time I've used 3D Foam Hearts.  Placed the largest one onto the reverse of
patterned paper and cut around.  There are three sizes of hearts in the pack so
lots of versatility.
I then adhered one of the Bo Bunny jewels.

The next tag in the book attaches a die cut heart with 3D Foam Squares - White, Regular.
This gives the heart more definition and yet allows the tag book to close.
 Also added a few more of those jewels.
The final tag in the book...although I'm thinking I could easily add more!

Friday Die Day

Friday, 24 April 2015
Hello friends

Whoosh!  It's Friday already!
This week's Friday Die Day features Swirl Delight.
This is a Die D-Lite, two templates in the set and the
approximate measurements are:

2¼ x 1"
3⅜ x 2⅝"

This is how it looks cut/embossed.
I've gone monochrome this week.
Onto a white card base applied strips of washi tape diagonally.
5 strips in total.
Used the largest die cut from Swirl Delight and placed vertically onto the front of the card.
Stamped 'For You' in the bottom corner.
Added Sprigs and little flowers for the finishing touch.
Close up pic.
Swirl Delight is on the website here.
A useful die and a handy size too.

This weekend I was due to be at Burleydam Garden Centre in Chester
but the date has now changed to Saturday 13 June.
More dates and venues have been added to the tour so please stop by
the Spellbinders Tour tab on the website now and again to check where I am!
I have to keep checking!

Take care friends - wishing you all a sunny weekend.

Flowery Scalloped Pop Up Box

Wednesday, 22 April 2015
Hello friends

Today featuring the Scalloped Box Up Box.
I had never actually made on of these but was delighted at how simple it was.
The die set looks like this...
You need to cut 4 box panels - the embossing places your score lines, very handy!
Do not fold one of the panels - keep one straight (far left) as this is the back section
of your pop up box. Hoping you can see in this photo
that you stick the panels together in a line with the side tabs.
You can then start to decorate - 
place a long piece of patterned paper on your straight back panel (see tip below).
Smaller squares of patterned paper on the remaining top panels -
these fold outwards.
Cut/emboss three of the little strips, again it embosses where you need to make folds.
These are the support sections inside and you need to place them something like this...
It is then just a case of folding the box around and adhering the last tab.
Tip: do not stick down fully that long panel of patterned paper as you can
insert the final tab behind it making a nice neat job.
Here I've decorated the box with Marisa's Bouquet and Bordered Sentiments.
Those inner support sections are for attaching your stems etc.
The pretty scallop sections are dies that come with the Pop Up Box die set, 
useful to use on other projects too.
And same applies to the Bordered Sentiments, I'm seeing those on cards too.
Scalloped Pop Up Box is available on the website here,
Marisa's Bouquet is here and Bordered Sentiments are here!

Remember this box folds flat too so can be posted :)

Take care friends, hope you are having a good week -
I've had washing on the line every day...it's the little things!

Anniversary

Tuesday, 21 April 2015
Hello friends

A simple frame design card today, cream card base and spotty card for the frame.
I've then added Sprigs and Flower Play.
You can see here I've used the matching Flower Play stamps.
I really like the stamped effect on the die cuts, I'm now thinking black on coloured card
would look effective so watch this space...!
I tied double twine for the bow...this is as fussy as my bows get :)
The Flower Play dies and matching stamps are available here.

Thank you again for all your kind comments regarding Elliott and his MRI,
still waiting to hear from the hospital but chasing it up today.
I have discovered a hospital in London that has an alternative machine so
possibly another option and much closer to home!
Fingers and toes crossed.

Loving the sunshine, it was time for Spring cleaning the cabin yesterday -
Dad spruced up the windows for me...excellent service don't you think?!

Take care friends.

Springtime!

Monday, 20 April 2015
Hello friends

The start of a new week and delighted to report my first sighting of bluebells.
I was walking Bella in the woods on Saturday and espied them - 
I love seeing the new growth and knowing Spring is definitely here.

 And this is something wonderful too...
Mum and Dad have a camera in their bird box again this year and here is a very
diligent mummy bird protecting her....
 seven eggs!
This 'bird watching' is a little addictive!

Today sharing a flowery scrapbook page, the photo was taken a few years ago!
It's a very geometric design and I tend to favour these more and more.
It features Eyelet Circles, Anemone Flower Topper and Foliage dies.

Thank you for the kind messages regarding Elliott and his impending MRI scan.
It was following a comment from Linda on my blog (thank you so much Linda!)
 that there is an opened sided MRI scanner in Newcastle that I've decided to investigate further.
I am currently awaiting news from his consultant at The Royal Marsden as to whether 
Elliott can be referred to a different hospital - we are keeping our fingers crossed as he 
needs fairly frequent MRI scans.

Take care friends - I'm back in my cabin today busily and happily crafting.

Blog Hopping with Bo Bunny!

Sunday, 19 April 2015
Hello friends

Today I'm taking part in the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog hop
with Bo Bunny - it's Day 1 and it's going to be a whole week of fun with a chance to win!


If you stop by the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog each day you can enter to win
as well as following the links to other blogs - feast your eyes on fabulous
projects and again opportunities to win...that's all good isn't it!

My project is a tag album it uses the fresh and bright Forever Young papers by Bo Bunny.
Here's how to make it...
From kraft card cut 6 strips measuring 8" x 3.5" - round the corners at one end.
 Taking 5 of the strips stagger/step them and trim them all at one end.
I just eyeballed this but you can measure if you wish.
With the remaining full length strip fold in half and round all four corners -
this creates a little folder cover for the first page of your tag book.
Now the fun bit - decorating each tag.
I selected the papers, cut each one to size and adhered with MyStik® Permanent Strips..

 Here is each tag with coordinating papers.
 I then punched two holes and inserted the book rings.
 For the cover I used one of the smallest Keepsake Envelopes, cut and inserted a
decorative piece of paper from the Bo Bunny range.
 Added a die cut flower and affixed with 3D Foam Squares - White, Small.
To complete the cover I added a 'With Love' die cut sentiment.

Here are the giveaway details...
