Card for the Bo Bunny Sketch Challenge

This is my take on the current Bo Bunny Card Sketch (they have one each month). I used last year’s Gabrielle collection pp, diecut stickers and layered stickers. I added color to a standard white doily with some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and here’s what I came up with:

I mainly used Helmar Premium Craft Glue, but the sentiment piece is popped up with Zap Dots (foam squares) and the seam binding bow was adhered using 450 Quick Dry.

Here’s the fab Bo Bunny Sketch I was inspired by:

True Beauty Layout – Bo Bunny Layout Challenge

Bo Bunny has a wonderful sketch posted for their challenge this month, so I knew I just had to play along! I selected this photo of Madison that I’ve been meaning to get to. It’s so hard for me to get a good picture of her unless I catch her by surprise…even then, it’s hit or miss…when she poses for the camera, she tends to plaster an odd smile on her face (like so many children do!) or when trying not to have a fake smile, she won’t smile at all and therefore appears sullen when she’s not. My one and only daughter is also full of attitude, so it often shows in her photos. lol 😀 I happened to catch her just right in this pic, so I figured it would be perfect for the BB Sketch. The Gabrielle range was perfect w/the purple of her shirt, so here’s my take:

Materials:

Bo Bunny Gabrielle papers
BB Gabrielle chipboard stickers
BB Gabrielle layered chipboard
BB Gabrielle layered stickers
BB Gabrielle Cardstock sticker
BB Gabrielle Trinket
Distress Inks
Hero Arts crocheted trim
cream seam binding
Inkssentials white pen

Adhesives:

Helmar Adhesive Runner
Helmar Zap Dots
Helmar Acid Free Glue

Tools:

2 different Fiskars border/edge punches

Based on the BB challenge sketch:

TFL! Entries are due on 7/28/11 around 4pm eastern (see the countdown clock next to the inlink button for exact deadline). If you’d like to link up your take on the sketch, CLICK HERE.

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
