Some Bunny Loves You!

As part of decluttering my craft room; I've challenged myself to use up the materials I have on hand. I wanted to create something for Easter and was inspired by the colors in a set of "Bo Bunny" stickers to make this "Some Bunny Loves You" paper bag album kit!
Hope you like it!

I've been working on making my own embellishments...the cover page is all handcrafted, except for the Prima flowers.

More handcrafted accents: chocolate and white bunnies, "decorated" eggs and mini page titles!

I love these papers by K&Company; I have used them for so many projects and the shades of brown, green, blue, teal and even pink were just right for this project.

Add photos and what a SWEET little book to hold your Easter memories!
Thanks for stopping by!

Faces of Love ~ Crinkled Posy Tutorial

I am so excited

that I finally have time to focus on finishing up this custom 20-page album I've been working on and wanted to share some progress pics. You might remember this little BEAUTY from some earlier layouts, my friend's darling little Grace! I just have to add a few finishing touches like some more bUtTeRfLiEs and the JoUrNaLiNg.

I love the way the posies turned out, they are so easy to make! I use circle and scallop punches, or you can use your Cricut, in varying sizes. I spritz them with water (not too much or the paper will tear); crumple them up and then uncrumple them to dry. Once they are dry, you can ink the edges and the creases if you like. Stack them up and secure with a brad or stitch a button to hold them together. Add stems or leave them as they are!
