Take A Hike With Misc Me!


Hi BoBunny fans! Today I will be sharing some 12 x 12 Misc Me pages with you using the fabulous Take A Hike Collection, so lets get started.

The Great Outdoors by Tracee Provis

Ever year we hire a little cottage by the sea, there are lots of trails and coastal paths to explore so I thought I would create an album of our adventures.


The Take A Hike collection is perfect for documenting outdoor walks, and I cut out 3 x 4 journaling cards on the Trails sheet. I cut just the paw on the bear card then I slipped my picture of the nature trail sign in behind and it looks like he is holding on to it for me.


I layered up some papers along with a Misc Me Pocket Square (that I cut the edges off) and then added some journaling. As you can see by the date I am starting with some older photo's in this album.


I cut the compass from another of the Pocket Squares, there are usually more than one of each of the cards, so I still have another to use in its entirety. I then layered over a title that I cut on my silhouette.


I used the 4 pocket page protector for my next page and in each one I created like a mini scrapbook page. 


I cut out the frame that is on the fishing sheet and I wanted it to fill my pocket but it wasnt quite big enough so I attached it to a 6 x 6 piece of vellum and popped it in. I sneaked in a butterfly that I cut from the Butterfly Kisses Collection. Once again I cut the Wild and Free title on my silhouette.


You can also use your mixed media products in your pockets, here I took the Summertime Stencil and added some crackle paste clouds to my papers after it was totally dry I then added it to my page protector.


I hope you have enjoyed your visit with me today, I will be back soon to share more of the pages in this album.

Sunday Funday With Take A Hike!!


Hello Everyone!

It's Denise here today, on this Sunday Funday, to share some "Take a Hike" party decor.

Party Decor by Denise van Deventer using the BoBunny Take a Hike Collection

I made some invitations and party bags, along with a lantern and some flags.

Here's a closer look at the lantern.

It's based on a Chinese lantern template and then I just added some twine and some accents.

I also made a cross holder at the bottom to hold a tea-light candle.

I had a lot of fun with the invitations.  I used some Misc. Me cards to create these invitations and then did some paint splattering, along with a whole lot of stamping.

Here's another view of these invites.

I also made some party bags and just decorated them, fairly simply with a Misc. Me card and some stamping.

Lastly, I made some flags, for decor or which one can also use on treasure hunts etc. to mark or lead the way.

Fabulous Firework Layout!


Hi BoBunny Fans :)

Today I wanted to share with you a layout using the new Firecracker collection :)  Its themed around the 4th of July and fireworks but I love how you can use any collection for any purpose regardless of theme :)  I mean would you have thought a layout would work using spring photos with Firecracker??

This wee dude is just the cutest wee boy :)

I have used lots of layers to build up my photo and embellishments.  Some pieces, like the chipboard frame, are cut in half to make them go further, which in turn allows the page to flow better.  Curling the ends of banners gives a bit more dimension as well.  I love how a mixture of chipboard, papers and blossoms brings the whole layout together :)

To help blend the background into the photo and embellishments Ive used glitter paste and a stickable stencil before doing some random stamping.  

Thanks for popping by today :)

Firecracker Pops With Mixed Media!


Hi!

It's Romy here and today I have a lay-out to share with you that I made with the brand new and very pretty Firecracker collection. I also used stamps, glitter paste and stickable stencils to decorate my lay-out.

Celebrate! by Romy Veul


My lay-out is titled "Life is a party". I thought this title was perfect for the bright and festive "Firecracker" collection. I added a banner, some stars and glitter details to give my lay-out a festive look.



I framed my photo with the chipboard frame from the Firecracker chipboard sheet. I attached two rockets from the Layered Chipboard package in the corner of the frame.


The background of my lay-out was made of Double Dot card stock. I decorated one of the sheets with different mixed media. I first stamped in the corners and then used two stickable stencils and Red and Graphite glitter paste to further decorate these corners.

Today it's my turn to show you 1 layout 3 ways. I did it before and looks to me I just take 3 steps  in this process and still have desire to work some more.

Well, let's see all the changes together.

I was able to work with Butterfly Kisses collection, I admire it!

Firecracker Misc Me!


"Here's to all the places we went" Misc Me album by Agnieszka Bellaidea


I noticed a long time ago my style differs depending on the project. With Misc Me creating it's so easy you just go through pages like with scrapbook pages years ago.

Do you remember times when people created several 12x12 pages in 1 hr?

I like fussy cutting, mixed media touch , stitching and adding all the lovely stuff from BoBunny collections but...

Yes, I have to admit simple style it's still on and if you want to use all these photos you take during trips and family gatherings Misc Me pages are great solution.


A couple of years ago when teaching in my LSS I noticed older ladies getting happy   with "small stuff" they never had when they started adventure with scrapbooking. I was told in "old days" there was so much cutting, messuring, folding and now it's so easy just slide ready elements in transparent pockets.


I have a little trick to tell you. Misc Me pockets are big enough to hold more photos so you can use them not only for one or two . I kept several photos from the same trip under the one you can see on my photo.


Of course if you want there is no need to use glue or even cut papers but still, I like to add little texture.


Another trick to using many photos with one collection is to develop them in black and white or sepia, this way everything will match and you can  use one collection in each album you create.

How do I know you will have more than one? Because Misc Me is addictive !
