I'm so happy these days because it's July! And July is my month!! Ok yes, the weather is hot. But, I love summer and I love to celebrate it everyday!
I started thinking..on summer every trip, every walk, every coffee with friends.. they could all become a tale! This is way I decided to use the first pictures of this month to create a LO entitled Summer Tales!
I used the BoBunny Celebrating Freedom collection and I had a lot of fun with the pictures. I didn't want to use their real color and was searching for a vintage look, so I applied a 50% Black & White Mask before stamping them. Since my images were vintage, I wanted a funny background to pair them with! So, I thought about something that could seem a watermelon.
To create the watermelon effect, I chose the Damask Double Dot Dusty Rose Cardstock and the Watermelon Paper by Celebrate Freedom to assemble my watermelon background. For the black seeds I decided so stamp some little flowers here and there in the center of some dots in the dusty rose cardstock.

And now let me show you some pictures of the details:
Near the main picture, I used the bigger embellishment. The two pinwheels (of course in pink and green) and some embossed flowers made with Simply Flowers Stamp Set.
On the other side, I used a pick butterfly, a little red flower, and a a red resin star. Behind the pictures I created some layers using the "Celebrating Freedom" and the "Happy" 12x12 papers.
Of course I also used some of the Noteworthy Flowers (I cut a branch of flowers into single ones) and the little glittered dots you see are in the Celebrating Freedom Thicker Alpha.
For the title I used two Thicker Alpha: Celebrating Freedom (red glittered) and Sweet Clementine (pink with red foiled center).
Scrapbooking Tip: I really love writing my journaling with a gray pen. Black is really too strong and I don't love it on my LO.
Thanks for following along! Until next time,

Elena here today to share a layout I made recently!
I like taking many shots while photographing my kids. That way, I have many options to choose from when going to print!
So, that's why I used 3 photos for my layout. I started by coloring my background paper from Bazzil Cardstock with gesso and BoBunny sprays. For a more in depth look at my process, you can check out my video tutorial! :)

To create the circle, I used WRMK Circle Spin and Trim tool. To embellish my layout, I mostly used the Chipboard Stickers.
For the title, I used Thickers from 2 different pack to make it more bright and colorful.
I added some banners and stripes from the leftovers from my mini album I made with the same collection - Celebrating Freedom. PRO TIP: Make sure to save your scraps. You will always be able to find ways to use them in future projects :)
Hope you enjoyed my project! Can't wait to see what YOU make with BoBunny Celebrating Freedom.

Emmy here today with my first post for July featuring the astonishing Celebrating Freedom collection from BoBunny's newest release. This week we are focusing on creating layout here on BoBunny's blog and I've decided to design a layout with many different layers.
For my background I used two different pattern papers - Stars and Stripes and Pinwheel. I cut off 2 cm from each side of the Pinwheel pattern paper, distressed its edges using a paper piercing tool and a paper distresser and adhered it in the middle of the Stars and Stripes pattern paper. After the papers were secured, I sprinkled Frost Glimmer Spray on top.
I matted my picture on a slightly larger panel of white cardstock. To create the layers under my picture I used various 12" pattern papers and pattern papers from the Paper pad matching the collection. Before adhered the different layers together with mounting foam tape, I distressed their edges.
To decorate my layout I used die cut images from the Noteworthy pack and layered chipboard embellishments.
For my title I used a word from one of the pattern papers.
To finish off my design I added different color rhinestones.
I hope you enjoyed today's post

Hi there! Tomorrow is the 4th of July and I have made some cards to show you. Fun fact is that it is also my daughters 21st birthday!! So, even if I do not live in the United States, we do celebrate this day too! I have made a couple of different cards for the occasion and I hope you like them. I really like the collection "celebrating freedom" that I have been using for these cards, I love the colors in the flag and I honestly think that it is one of the most beautiful flags in the world.
Enjoy the cards! :)
I would like to send these cards to someone who would love to have them! Just leave a comment on this post and I will pick someone to send them to. Of course I would love to send it to someone in the US if you would like them. I know you will not be able to use them this year but you can save them for next year!
I'm back with you today to share a new project created with Celebrating Freedom collection.
In a few days it's 4th of July and I've made a fun home decor to celebrate the event.
To make it, I used an old wood frame. I removed the glass and painted the back panel with black gesso, to create a blackboard. Then, I started the decoration and I decided to create some paper rosettes. Celebrating freedom collection has several papers in blue, red and white, so I grabbed those to stay on the American flag colors.
To create the rosette I cut stripes of papers in different sizes, from 0.75 for the smaller, to 2,50 inches for the bigger ones. I used 12 inches papers and two stripes are sufficient to make one rosette.
Then, I layered the rosette one on the other including two paper doilies in between. On top center of each rosette, I placed a star in resin or gold glitter.
I added a banner at the bottom of the frame and for the word Celebrate, I used the coordinated Alpha chipboord of Celebrating Freedom.
For the fun of kids, I punched lots of confetti from the paper left-overs using the WRMK punch. I put them in glassine bags and closed with a piece of red glitter washi tape.
I hung the confetti bags to the blackboard with other pieces washi tape, so everyone can easily grab one and voilà!
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you liked this home decor which can be easily reused and adapted for many other occasions. Have a great 4th of July!
Hello BoBunny Friends, hope you enjoy your Summertime and it's great to know that there are 2 more months to come. I like Summertime and spend it mostly in our countryside house, taking the shots of my kids.
I haven't had the chance to print the photos however I've made the mini album for this Summer shots.
I made the pages as the envelopes and decorated the cover with the chipboard stickers and leftovers mostly. I like the foil accents it has.
To decorate my pocket pages I used 6*8 Paper pad from Celebrating Freedom collection, and embellished it with the fussy cutting pieces and some Noteworthy.
Since the photos are not ready and I wanted to make the embellishments more vivid, but the size of my mini is not large, I added the accents with washi tape, there are 8 pieces in one pack, so it's quite easy to make simple and fast layers.
Some of the washi tape is like narrow stripe, but the others are quite large , so it's easy to make the banners or basic shapes
The papers are so juicy , so true for the Summertime
However some of them are different and great for Independence Day celebration too
Hello there! In a few days we are celebrating our wedding. 11 years. We met when we where seventeen, a lifetime ago but I can clearly remember when I first sow him, he was so handsome <3 For the first time we are going to have an anniversary party to celebrate 'us' and our love that keeps alive despite the everyday troubles. The location will be our terrace and I've prepared some decoration I would like to hang up on the ceiling of the veranda.
These flowers are very simple. They are made of three circles of paper and I made a video to explain how to make them, you can find it on BoBunny IGTV. Here are the BoBunny Double Dot cardstock I chose
I made a bunch of them and it took me a couple of hours to create 11 bunners
I love how they softly move, they are so relaxing!
This is just a work in progess. Be sure to visit my blog after the 5th of July - anniversary date - to see some pics of the party set up and if you make your own flower banners, don't forget to tag me. I would love to see yours!
