Do What? layout – Sketchy Thursdays challenge entry

Here’s Matthew up close and personal. 😀 These were taken when he was just 2 years old. This kiddo loves the camera (unlike Christian…I’m still trying to get shots of him where he isn’t staring at me like I’m an alien!).

I created this layout based on the 3.03 sketch provided on Sketchy Thursdays for their challenge. Everything you see, except the brown alphas and brown cardstock I used to mat the photos, is from Bo Bunny’s gorgeous Garbielle line. I love this beautiful, detailed line and enjoyed further challenging myself to use what seems at first to be a “girly” range on a boy page. This has been a goal of mine since 95% of my crafty goodies tend to be girly, but I have 4 boys and 1 girl! Here’s what I came up with:

Materials:

Bo Bunny Gabrielle 12×12 papers
American Crafts Brown cardstock
BB Gabrielle stickers
BB Pet Shop sticker alphas
BB Gabrielle “True Friend” cardstock stickers
BB Gabrielle brad
BB Gabrielle chipboard

Adhesives:

Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro PermaTac

Review – Bo Bunny Midnight Frost Collection Pack

I just created a single page, multi-photo layout using the BoBunny Midnight Frost Collection Pack. The package includes 18 sheets of double sided cardstock (2 each of 9 designs) and 1 accessory sheet with alphas and coordinating diecut shapes. This line has such gorgeous, deeply rich colors, that I was very impressed. I love how many of the papers have one side that is more muted and feature a distressed appearance, making them fabulous bases for layering. I also greatly enjoyed the accessory sheet that comes with the papers. Here’s what I created:

For this layout, I used the sketch provided on their blog for their Friday challenge. CLICK HERE if you’d like to create a layout for their challenge too. Hope you enjoy the Midnight Frost collection as much as I did! 😀
