I am so excited about this paper! It is double sided artsy, funky, grungy, lovely, pretty and fabulous! I could hardly wait to use it. My only regret is that I only did two lay outs before I figured I better get this posted. I am planning to do so much more! The paper is so wonderful I could not stand to use it on card stock, I wanted to put all of my photos right on the paper itself. It is so easy to embellish and you can choose your theme, it doesn't have to be "gardening". It fits any kind of theme. One side has butterflies or something lovely and the other side is more versatile with paint and patches of wording and other delightful, delectable, delicious, artsy stuff that I love. Come and see the paper for yourselves, you will love it!

Bo Bunny Country Garden Glimpse

This paper is magic! Its grungy, beautiful, funky, artsy and so captivating! I could not wait to do projects with it. It was pure delight! My only regret is that I only did a couple lay-outs and a few cards and so you cannot really see all the wonderful variety that this paper line offers. Every sheet of paper is artistic loveliness, I want to scrapbook right on the paper instead of putting it on card stock because the papers are double sided and so photo friendly, they add all these wonderful, artful touches without overwhelming the page. They are also very versatile, you do not need to garden to use these papers, you can use them for anything, absolutely any theme! I love them and I know you will too!

St. Patrick's Day craft...

It's spring break for the grand girls, and I'm getting to spend a little time with them this week.  Today we had fun making necklaces, bracelets and headbands that they can wear for St. Patrick's Day.  The idea comes from this fun blog.

I got into my patterned paper "stash" and found green papers; cut the papers 1 1/2" by 1 1/2" while the girls were linking green paper clips together.  Here is the "how to."  (No picture of the glue, but we used Elmer's glue to hold the papers after we folded them around the paper clip.)  We cut 1" circles with a circle punch and glued it to a metal-rimmed tag to make the initial "accent!" :0)

Voila....a fun, St. Patrick's day necklace!!

My Mind's Eye

"Miss Caroline" from My Mind's Eye was the perfect backdrop for these "little girl" pictures...several shades of pink with accents of aqua, sage green and gold.  The double-sided cardstock gives you so many options, I loved it!!  The line also includes some fun embellishments: cardstock stickers and Princess pearl swirls.

s.e.i. promise me

Layout and Cards
Ingredients:  s.e.i. promise me: passion, happiness, delicacy, sweet talk and adoration papers, promise me sundries and promise me accent frames, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist-Silver, cream and red embroidery floss, Glossy Accents, fake diamond embellishment, ribbon stamp, Bazzill paper in various colors...

The layout was a scrap lift from Creating Keepsakes Nov/Dec 2011 issue, page 81.  I cut the paper into strips of 1/2 inch and glued them down.  I cut out the gold fancy circle from the delicacy paper. After gluing down all the strips and circle I then made a circle to fit inside the circle to use as a mask.  I then sprayed the whole thing with my glimmer mist.  I used a lot of spray so the paper curled a bit when it dried.   Then I added my embellishments, photo and ribbon stamp. I did a bit of embroidery stitching on the journal strip and in random spots.  Then I added some Glossy Accents to the word "LOVE".
The sweet talk paper had a lot of cute sayings and journaling squares that I used on 2 of the cards.  For the other cards I used some of my scrap paper and goodies from the accent frames and sundries packages.  I especially love that little key. 
This would be a perfect line for wedding, valentines or anything related to love.
