Bo Bunny Botanical Journal Cottage Scrapbook Layout

70C38A61-BA70-460C-B9F5-1A379BD3BB9B

This scrapbook page really encompasses so much of what I love about paper crafting – die cuts, chipboard, flowers, paint, lace… I mean, seriously.

I used the Bo Bunny Botanical Journal collection for this happy, cottage style layout and embellished it with lots of shabby chic goodies. One of my favorite things on this page is the Roman clock chipboard piece by Scrapaholics. I love the way it looks when painted!

The Lavender Frost fabric flowers from Prima Marketing make this page feel so cottage cozy!

I found these printables on Pinterest for the butterflies in my page, if you’d like to print them too. I printed them at a 5×7 inch size to get the butterflies you see here:

I love Lindy’s Gang Magicals for so many reasons – one of which is their versatility. When mixed with some white gesso, it’s so super easy to make custom paint colors!

Ciao Bella “The Muse” Scrapbook Layout

the muse memories

This is my time using Ciao Bella, and I am completely in love! The illustrations are fabulous, and the paper collections include lots of great ephemeral elements to fussy cut out.

In the video below, I’ll do a flip through of The Muse collection, and make this darling “Moments” scrapbook page.

I also dyed my own seam binding to match! My handmade seam binding, as well as premade scrapbook layouts (including this one!) can be found in my eBay shop.

Kickin’ It Old School

blue books

This week was all about the 49 and Market Old School Collection. I mean ALL ABOUT IT.

I used the entire collection in the past couple days, and it made me so happy in my heart.

I’ve never seen a paper collection with ephemera and die-cuts like these – books, pen and ink, and 3D notebook die-cuts!

first day of school 1

I made lots of collage-style pages using the die-cuts in the collection, along with the Cobalt and Sky Wildflowers.

Fun, right?! For the layout above, I cut around the boarder of one page and popped it up with cardboard to create a kind of shadowbox effect. The paper underneath is from Tim Holtz.

What do you think? Which page is your favorite? I sell all my premade pages in my Etsy and eBay shops too, if you’d like to add any of these layouts to your own album or shadowbox.

Thanks for taking this tour with me today! Keep in touch, and happy crafting! xoxo

3D Vellum Butterflies

blue butterflies 1

Vellum. I always forget about vellum. I buy it once every few years for a specific project, and then it goes into the darkness of my craft cabinet (the cabinet in my craft room is where I put all my random forgotten embellishments).

The other day I was thinking of butterflies. Like ya do. I love printing them with cardstock, and I thought I’d try it out on vellum! After an entire afternoon of sorting through 1/2 finished scrapbook kits and neon ribbon, I found my stash of vellum! A quick dust-off and it was good as new!

For this fun butterfly project, I simply printed each butterfly twice, fussy cut them, and stacked them (adding glue only in the center). Fold up the wings when dry and voila! Gorgeous, ephemeral butterflies!

Here’s my video tutorial, if you’d like to see the process in real life πŸ™‚

I’m super happy with the way they turned out! Now, I’m looking to print all KINDS of ephemera with vellum – just to experiment!

What do you think? Any other vellum printable ideas you can suggest? I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Need vellum? You can purchase it through Amazon.

You can purchase this 3D butterfly scrapbook page from my Etsy shop (free US shipping) as well.

BEE-autiful New Layouts

Bee and flowers

The only thing more fun than making bee-themed scrapbook pages, is being able to use about a billion bee puns. You’ve been warned.

I was buzzin’ this week, making cards and layouts using these adorable printables I purchased from Dots Inspiration Shop on Etsy.

I couldn’t BEE-lieve how adorable they were when I printed everything out (seriously, you should have seen my craft table. It was like a field of honeybees in the first warm day of summer, far as the eye could see).

Bee collage

I paired most of the layouts with the Memoranda paper pad by Tim Holtz so that I could get 12×12 coverage.

I love the grungy look to the paper and honey, it just worked perfectly.Β  πŸ™‚

Good morning

I really couldn’t BEE any happier with the way they all turned out.

With a little hand-dyed ribbon and flowers, these pages are happy as springtime bees in a field of dandelions.

Yellow flowers

I have a tutorial all about how to make these flowers and seam binding here:

You can find the paint and ink spray used on Amazon in the links below:

ink

Sunflowers

I love this color combo so much too! I can’t BEE-lieve how well it translated from spring to fall with just a change of flowers and background paper.

Moments

This last one is probably one of my favorites. I feel like I say that a lot, but honestly I just love working with paper and flowers so much!

I list all my newest scrapbook layouts and greeting cards on eBay and Etsy each Sunday too, so please stop by my shop and check out what’s available. I’m always so happy to give my creations a good home.Β  πŸ™‚

Hope you’ve enjoyed this quick look at my week in paper. Thanks for buzzin’ over. I’m going to flutter back to work on some new goodies for next week!

Please keep in touch – I’d love to know what you think about these pages.

Follow me on YouTube, FB and Instagram too! I’d love to BEE friends! xoxo

Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante

steampunk debutante

Ok. You ever have that paper collection that you are so excited to buy, but then are terrified to use it? It’s just so beautiful and perfect, you fear “messing it up” by actually crafting with the paper you purchased it for? Yeah. The Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante collection was one of those for me.

This paper pad is YEARS old and has been gracefully sitting in my paper closet looking pretty. Every once in awhile I would thumb through it (careful not to bend or crease even the cover) and then sigh happily and put it away again.

This week was the time. I just couldn’t hold back any more. But I promised myself that I would use as much as humanly possible, so I wouldn’t feel like any single page or tag was left behind. I think I did pretty well. I ended up using the collection to make 10 scrapbook layouts and 5 fancy cards.

I love them all so very much, and hope you enjoy these papery treasures too.

You can still find this discontinued collection on places like Amazon, but be warned – it has a hefty price tag. If you’ve got the coin though, trust me when I say, you won’t regret it. This paper collection truly is gorgeous. Link for the paper pad.

I also sell these finished 12×12 pages and greeting cards in my eBay shop, so feel free to check those out as well. They are all looking for a good home and ready to ship!

windmill man

Which paper collection did you hang on to for (maybe) too long? Did you ever use it, or do you just glance longingly at it every once in awhile as you craft with other paper pads?

I’d love to share in your paper romance too, so please keep in touch and drop me a comment.

Happy crafting! xoxo
