A weekend with " BoBunny" Autumn song cards


Well well well... 

September this year has just been so insanely busy!! We all have those times in the year that the family calendar is full of "to-do's" all month long and this month has been one of those for me! Luckily I am a stickler for writing things down as I am sure I would have forgotten something along the line.. 
This month is also very busy full of birthdays and holidays in my family so of course I prefer to make my cards for family rather than buying them.. So I whipped up a couple of cards in no less than half an hour for the two of them. I LOVED that I could do that so fast and make such a gorgeous card that will be cherished rather than just added to the pile of bought cards... So I decided to scrap lift my other BoBunny layout from the start of the month.. I based my first card on the layout and then also used scraps from that layout which  REALLY cut down on time... 

♥ All products used are from BoBunny ♥

And here is the layout I based it on .. 

Then using the left over scraps again I decided to make another card , but this time in a much simpler style. Sometimes we have people in our lives that appreciate hand-made cards but prefer it to be on the "down low" ha ha.. I know you all know some of those people!! 
So this is why this card was made...

Well I am off for a much need little getaway for a few days and then life should settle down more .. Which means more time too behind my scrapbooking desk which I am sooooo looking forward too ..Until then ..

Much love

A weekend with "BoBunny Style Swap"

Good morning and welcome to today's post..

This weeks BoBunny style swap was so much fun and was definitely a challenge for me.

 A fun challenge though.

 I decided to take the approach of choosing another design team member with a style that is very different to mine. So I decided to swap style with my BoBunny team mate
Lisa Nazario-Gregory , who coincidentally , is also on a style swap layout with me today over on the BoBunny blog.

So to get prepared I took a look around Lisa's blog and really noticed that she has a defined style and her pages would not be complete with out flowers, vines, butterflies, and a layered background. So with these elements in mind this is what I came up, based on her style. 

I can tell you know I am really pleased wit how it all came together and once again I used the Autumn Song collection. The more I play with this collection the more I realise just how versatile it really is, and is not just "themed" for Autumn. So I really played with the bright's of this collection and LOVE the purple elements ( my favourite colour) .

I noticed that the Lisa usually has a little butterfly tucked away somewhere on her layout, so I added a few punches using my trusty Martha Stewart punch. 

I also loved having the chance to play with my Silhouette Portrait and made these "rose leaves" cut outs. I just adhered them with some foam dots underneath to help add some dimension.  

Lastly I added a touch of "my style" by writing on the background and underlining the sentences. I love doing this and lets me use up otherwise wasted real estate on my scrapbooking pages .

Well I hope that perhaps you might be inspired to try and do a style swap with another BoBunny design team member or perhaps another persons style that is not quite like yours. It is amazing what elements you might try and like .

Much Love 
Bernii xx
