Jan's Bo Bunny Reveal

I fell in love with this paper from the moment I opened my package!  My favorite was the Persuasion Bloom paper.  I loved the large bold print as well as the colors in this paper.  We also got stripes and dots, hearts and more dots.....double dot cardstock, that is! This paper collection is for any age group, young or old, boy or girl and it can even be used for birthdays and Valentine's Day.  Hey, but don't take my word for it.  Check it out for yourself.  Bo Bunny Persuasion Collection.   Still not convinced eh?  Then scroll down and check out my reveal and if you scroll down a little further you can see what the rest of the Design Team did with it.    

Here's what I came up with......cupcake card and gift tag.

Thanks for looking!  Be sure to scroll down or visit the Cookin' Up Creations gallery to see what the rest of the Design Team did this month.

Angela's June DT Reveal - Bo Bunny Press

I was so excited when I found out that we'd be working with the Bo Bunny "Persuasion" Collection for the month of June! What a gorgeous collection this was to work with!!! Not only were the papers beautifully designed but we were provided with such a generous amount of goodies to add to our creations.... Included were Bo Bunny's dotted cardstock; patterned papers; a WHOLE roll of ribbon; flowers; buttons & bling pack; and a pack of Clearly Stamps. There is also an acrylic album which you'll see more of at a later time. Thank you Bo Bunny for allowing us to create with your stunning products and for being SO generous! I was able to make 4 layouts plus 2 cards and I still have extras to work with...

Another "Celebrate" Reveal

Hi! This blog update is coming from Wanda, and I have four more pages to show you, using the adorable kit "Celebrate" by Designs by Krista.

My first page shows a couple of pictures of Sarah on Class Day. She made the Hall of Fame, something only 10 students make (out of 200 in her class) and we were very proud of that accomplishment, and of all that she has done throughout her four years of high school.

I used a template on this one, from The Happiest Grab Bag, which contained several kits and templates and alphas and stuff by various designers at Scrap Orchard. The grab bag is no longer available, but the template is made by Tracey Howard and can be found here. The cute alpha is from an older kit that I love, called My Gurlz All That by Royanna Fritschman at Divine Digital. That white frame is from Krista's Bloomin' kit.

Yeah, I actually forgot I had pictures from Mary Beth's trip to Disney that needed scrapping. I think I am going to do them all digitally. I love the little hats in this kit, and knew they would look cute on the girls' heads in this picture.

And this next page is a simple one using an extraction technique to pop Mary Beth out of the frames. The frames are from the June Mega kit at Scrap Orchard, called It's a Journey. I got the idea for putting patterned papers in those stamp frames from a layout at SO by Athena.

My last page showcases some cute pictures of my daughter Mary Beth with our sweet baby Chloe. Chloe hates the camera, so it is hard to get pics of her without distracting her somehow. Smooches from Mary Beth seem to do the trick!

The font is Vaguely Repulsive, downloaded from Kevin and Amanda HERE; and the scalloped background was made using a template from Nee Nee designs, available at Scrap Orchard.

That's it! I hope you like my pages, and that you will follow the links to check out some of Krista's cute and reasonably priced digi kits.

June Digital Sponsor

It's June, and I get to do the first reveals for the digital sponsor this month. Designs by Krista has graciously sponsored us again and since it is CUC's birthday, what better way to celebrate than with Krista's Celebrate kit!

This is such a fun kit with bright colors and elements! These first two layouts are of my children on their fifth birthday! They had dirty faces but I love these picts! This kit was perfect for them.

Up to the eighth birthday, we had a bubble machine and Alexis was chasing the bubbles and trying to catch them. So cute, and the circle patterned paper worked great with the pict.

And now, my final layout, I used the scallop paper, but overlaid it with the paisley paper and then adjusted the opacity of the paisley paper to give the texture of it to the scalloped paper. I love the way this turned out, and I used just a couple of elements to keep the focus on the pictures and the journaling.

Thanks for stopping by the blog! Don't forget that it is the birthday celebration and lots of fun, games, prizes, and challenges to be had.

Patti's Bo Bunny Persuasion Reveal

This month the Design Team was given Bo Bunny's Persuasion collection to create with. These papers and embellishments are wonderful.....easy to work with and inspire the LO. Thanks, Bo Bunny for being Cookin' Up Creations June sponsor. Be sure to visit their blog and check out this line as well as all of their AMAZING new collections. The birthday girl taking time to lounge around. Love the ease of using the papers to layer and the slight distressed look of them....a super collection!
The paper creates such a wonderful background...a soft water-color effect. Beautiful!

When it came to journaling the paper already said what I would have. My dd and her dd share the same birthday and the doodled background with the prases you and me, love you, unconditional love, and my heart...which is a phrase that is used at their house often...were just perfect. There was no need to say more.

I used the stamp to create my journaling card. The journaling talks about how Paige would not even touch her cake. Finally her brother attacked and destroyed it for her.

The Cut Outs and Stickers make card making so easy! TFL!
