Honey Bunny

My Honey Bunny, the gorgeous Miss Gali!

Blue Fern Studios Spring Parade paper with a sweet bunny & beautiful flowers was the perfect background 
for my ever gorgeous and sweet Miss Gali! 
I'm sure you guessed that one of her many nicknames is "Honey Bunny" >^..^<  

I was anxious & excited to use some dies I recently bought from Spellbinders.  
Bazzill linen cardstock, in a pretty lavender color, showed up so well on this paper 
so it was used for all of the Spellbinder die cuts.

Starting with the gorgeous and oh-so-girly frame is the Spellbinders
Blooming Collection set - Laced with Love

The corner pieces are from the same die set.


A custom ordered chipboard title from Want2Scrap was heat embossed in 
Lindy's Stamp Gang EP color Imperial Crown Purple Gold.


I fussy cut some pretty flowers from another page in the same BFS paper collection 
and placed this piece at the base of Miss Gali's photo.  

Then I began decorating with flowers.

Another new die set I recently got from Spellbinders is Delicate Doilies
I placed them among the flowers as added embellishments.


I used a variety of flowers and leaves; 
even die cutting some of the leaves in the Spring Parade paper.




Thanks so very much for dropping by and have a great upcoming week!

Perfect Moment

Guess what?
Another Brianne layout!  This time a girly/grunge one!

As I've mentioned before, my daughter has been doing some modeling shoots in Houston and the photographers give her digital photos in exchange for the opportunity to use them for advertising.  
She has become a bit popular lately so I'm a happy camper with all of these awesome photos of her!
Photography by Kiera Grant

Kept this one simple because the photo speaks volumes!

I chose Bo Bunny paper from my stash that has a chevron pattern.  
I also didn't want to 'conform' to the usual horizontal chevron so I turned the paper to be a vertical chevron.  There are printed words in the background, but that doesn't bother me that they are also sideways. 

The photo has a grunge feel about it so I accentuated the jet black of Brianne's leggings by 
stenciling butterflies with a mixture of modeling paste & jet black mica powder.  
I dabbed the same paste mixture all over the layout with a coarse sponge to create a grunge look.

Then I dabbed the same mixture with the coarse sponge on some chipboard corner pieces. Cool!

Bringing out the colors in the photo, I created a very simple flower cluster.
I added back stamen and fun fur for added texture.

Lastly, the chipboard title by The Dusty Attic was heat embossed in Blue Fern Studios Imagine Ink color Stormy Seas to add some sparkly to the page : )  Under the title I glued the throw-away pieces from the beautiful new die cut I just got - Spellbinders Fairmont Decorative Element that was used under the photo.

I so appreciate your wonderful visit and hope that you have a great weekend!  Lisa : )
