Rose Cafe Misc Me!

Rose Cafe is such a versatile, beautiful line as Keri Babbit shows u s with her lovely project!

I love the nostalgic colors and soft, botanical images of the new Rose Cafe collection.  Since I knew I wanted to do an Autumnal spread this month, I edited the colors down to the greens, browns, and bold golds of this collection.  Perfect for my photos!

I knew I wanted a flowing path of golden falling leaves to unify the entire two-page spread, so I kept the pattern of the background simple.  I simply cut the 12x12" Rose Cafe Garden paper into 12 3x4" cards, to create a top and bottom border for my row of 6 larger photos.

For my subtle title, I spread the stickable stencil letters across the top three paper cards.  I smudged the Sugar ink pad over the top, followed by a spritz with the Gold Glimmer Spray.

 Since the focus of this page was to get a really focused, seamless look, I added more unifying elements, like the row of Stamp Stickers on each photo, and the film strip border to ground the entire spread.

I spritzed the diecut leaves with Gold, Sugar, and Bronze Glimmer Sprays before laying them in a loose diagonal across the pages.  My finishing touch was a little typography fun with the new alphabet stickers - I love their size and design!

Beautiful Rose Cafe Cards!

Hello Friends! This time I was playing with new wonderful collection: Rose Cafe. It it just gorgeous and what I really liked about this collection that it has so many different colors to play with. As you will see from my 2 cards, I had achieved 2 totally different looks, one is more bright and another one is pure tenderness.

Sometimes, when you need to add that little bit of softness, texture, you can use some gesso and just carefully apply it with your brush on some flowers and corners of paper, it also gives you more shabby look.

I again want to share my little tip: when I use die cuts from noteworthy pack, such as roses and other things that I want to look a bit more dimensional, i just accuarately roll their ends a bit, and then as you can see on the photo below it has much more dimension.

Let's Play with Rose Cafe!

Hello friends! Are you ready to play with Rose Cafe? Alright, let's go!

The Rose Cafe collection is such a wonderful vintage collection that is perfect for so many occasions. I decided to make two neutral cards with these papers and will show you step by step how I made them.

Wonderful - Romy Veul

Use two sheets of paper from the 6x6 Rose Cafe pad for the background of the card. Ink the edges of the papers and attach them on top of a kraft cardstock card. 

Stamp with the 'Stitches Stamps' alongside the edges of the beige paper to create a stitched look. 

Stamp a couple of tiny hearts from the 'Stitches Stamps' sheet with embossing ink. Sprinkle some brown embossing powder on the hearts and use a heat tool to melt the powder. 

Cut out a doily or use a pre-made doily and attach it onto the card. Also take the 'Happy Bird' die-cut from the Noteworthy package and add it in the center of the card as well.

Take the bird sticker from the Layered Chipboard package and attach it onto the card. Add the 'Wonderful' chipboard title on top of the bird. 

Finally, add a few chipboard buttons, some jewels and Pearlescents to finish off the card.

The second card features a banner of chipboard and die-cut flags. 

The base of this card is a folded sheet of white card stock. Cut out two rectangles from two different sheets of the 6x6 paper pad, ink the edges and attach them on top of the card. Also add a border from Double Dot cardstock and three die-cut flags from the Noteworthy package to the card. 

Then attach several banners onto the card. I used two flags from the Layered Chipboard package, two flags from the Buttons package and two paper flags from the Noteworthy package. I also added a wood embellishment from the "That's Life Wood Shapes" package. Add a button on top of this wood embellishment.

Add some stitched edges by stamping alongside the edges of the card with the "Stitches Stamps".

Gently take off the 'Love' text from one of the Star-Crossed Layered Chipboard Stickers, so you can use only this text on your card.

Further decorate the card with the Love title, a couple of buttons, a trinket, two punched butterflies and some jewels.

Also add some Pearlescents to the card as a final finishing touch.

Sunday Fun with a Rose Cafe Layout!

Sunday greetings to you!  I'm happy to share with you a page featuring our beautiful new Rose Cafe collection. This collection is so very versatile having beautiful designs for both feminine and masculine projects and everything in between.

The photo I'm using here is not the best quality or even a perfect image, but it's definitely our perfect "everyday - this is what you get" kind of photo. I wanted to feature it and used the Noteworthy elements of "Fun Times" tab, then also the "Documented" and "Precious Memories" were layered together and stitched to create my sentiment.

To add some interest to the blue scalloped circle, I used the Bliss Stickable Stencil and rubbed some Brilliant Blue Pearlescents. A few Double Dot Jewels in Blue Hues were added.

On the left you'll notice some of the pretty Copper Glitter Paste peeking out which was applied using the Brocade Stickable Stencil design. A hidden journalling sheet is tucked under the photo, which was adhered with dimensional squares.

Marvelous Mixed Up Misc Me!

 Good Morning! Have you all enjoyed our Mix & Match week? Who would have thought that you could mix and match so many of the different BoBunny collections? Today I'm sharing my Misc. Me pages that I did featuring the Candy Cane Lane and Madeleine collections.

It's A Onesie Kind of Christmas by Lynn Shokoples

What do those have in common? Colors for one thing... the light greens and the soft pinks. Our daughter bought everyone "onesies" for Christmas last year, so we had some fun photos that I just had to scrap! Of course I couldn't forget our furbabies so they all had antlers for the holidays! To start I took some of the Madeleine Journal contents cards and mixed them with cards I made from the Candy Cane Lane 6x6 Paper Pad.

The Candy Cane Lane "Countdown" patterned paper had the cutest little cards on them, so I cut some out and layered them on the bigger cards. The 6x12 Chipboard has the cutest little sayings on them, so I tucked them here and there. That's the fun part of Misc. Me, playing with all the fun embellies!

The Candy Cane Lane "Holiday" patterned paper was full of fun bingo cards, so I jazzed them up with some of the Gold Glitter Paste and the buttons from the collection. The glitter paste was so much fun to play with I couldn't stop there. I took the Circle Stencil from the Brocade Stickable Stencil pack and added some fun glittery circles all over the cards. I thought it added some fun holiday glitter to the pages.
