Dessert Cookbook Dividers - Featuring Double Dot Damask and Stay Awhile with Elena

Hello BoBunny Fans,

I used to cook a lot in the past, but now I prefer to create more than spending this time at the kitchen. However I always like making cookbook dividers and recipe notes for my friends, so I get to combine my hobbies!

Today, since I have a go-to Desserts Recipe book for all my favorite sweet recipes,  I've added a few dividers to share that I've made for just this purpose.


For my background I used the new Double Dot Damask papers. It was so difficult to choose only one color from the range, but since I wanted to make several dividers , it was a good opportunity to use several at once.


For my embellishments and paper layers I used a lot of fussy cutting from the Stay Awhile papers. There are so many cute houses and flowers there to cut out, and lend itself nicely to the homey feel of the Stay Awhile paper collection.


However for my pages I made die cutting too , and used a few BoBunny dies, this beautiful Mandala Die that I topped with Emoji Die cut - just for a touch of fun.


Also I wanted to add some mixed media, so I primed my background with white gesso, then I applied the Stencil Texture Paste using Starling Stickable Stencil.
and misted with Gold Glimmer Spray and added the splatters  of Frost Glimmer Spray with a brush.


I used the both sides of the Double Dot Damask paper.  As you can see, one side is a classic subtle damask pattern, and the flip side has a medium scale, layered and antiqued dot patteen, so it was fun to mix them.


  I wanted to maintain the desserts theme of my recipe book, so I played mostly with cupcakes and coffee dies. I made a few cupcakes die cuts using Cupcake Dies.



I like the color palette of Stay Awhile collection, it can be used for many occasions, but it really reminds me something cozy and warm, something about the kitchen


After all my dividers have been done, I added the coloring with my brush and the sprays, just to add some accents


I like how it looks on the Double Dot Damask papers


Not only cakes and coffee makes me feel like Sweet Tooth, an ice cream , this what all the kids adore.
I've added the ice cream die cuts that I made using Summer Picnic Dies

Hand-crafted Card & Oversized Tag Set - Features Stay Awhile with Irit

Hello, My Dear Crafty Friends!

Welcome to my new BoBunny craft post.   It's Irit here today with my new BoBunny inspiration.
Today I am going to share a card and a tag made with a new, just released collection named Stay Awhile.  This collection is a bit wintery and cozy, but yet bright and shiny and is perfect for anything home connected (and coffee themed too!). It is trendy, yet classic as you will see as we go along.  I made a card and a tag that show both greens and blue colors of the collection.  I decided not to use mixed media techniques, but instead a simple classic, cardmaking style for all craft levels.

 As you can see the card was made mostly in green and brown colors and the tag was mostly made in blues.
Actually almost each and every cardstock piece of this collection has all colors and you can mix and match them all together.

So here is the tag alone:

 I added a few layers made of BoBunny dies cut from different cardstocks.  The main embellishment cluster is made of hand cut cardstock flowers and one single large flower.  The chipboard heart was painted with BoBunny Frost glimmer spray over the bare chipboard. A few spray drops were also added over the tag.
Everything else is just hand cut cardstock pieces and a lot of Combo stickers from this collection.

And here is a card:

 It's made in the same style with one single die cut frame, a lot of hand cut flowers and quite a lot of Combo stickers. I made the banner with layers by adding one flag over another with 3d foam glue.
One single wood heart was also added to this card as it actually is Home Love card.

You can also see the Coffee to go cup here- it's just a part of sticker image, but fits the cozy and warm home card as well.

 I hope that you like my card and tag and see you soon with new BoBunny collections!

"Timeless" - A 12x12 Layout with Stay Awhile and BoBunny Craft Dies with Katherine

Hello Everyone!! Katherine here today with a page using Stay Awhile and French Vanilla Double Dot Damask. 

To start, one of my favourite designs in the Stay Awhile pack is on the Together paper with it's beautiful blue and fern like fronds with rusty berries - so that was my main strip and color focal point for the page.  I edged it with one of the stickers from the sticker sheet - I cut the sticker in half on my guillotine and added down each side of the central strip.

I added some of the Clover Pansy blossoms to the side of my photos and hung one of the wooden bird cages, which I decorated with some Mocha jewels and tied up under the pansies.

I cut out one of the little rusty coloured houses from the Warm journal sheet, added a few jewels and then the sticker - Home is Where the Heart Is.

I added the jewels across my page to look like drips of paint.

I made a banner for my title using BoBunny's All Caps Alphabet Dies.  I hung them from some twine which is held in place mainly with glue, but also some strategically paced Emerald Green brads too.

Thanks for visiting with us today! Come back soon for more ideas and inspiration for your memory keeping!

Blue And Brown Cards by Ulrika Wandler using Stay Awhile Collection

I love the cupcake die! Matches perfect with the coffee mug.  I used some of my go-to BoBunny craft dies for this set to make sure I have lots of layers and details happening. The frame and border dies are among my favorites in all my projects!  To finish the cupcake here, I added "sprinkles" (colorful micro-pearls) on the top of the cupcake to mimic the look of a real cupcake.

Pop Dots are a must have!!  I set the house off from the card a bit to make it really POP!

This romantic card (designed in color wheel opposites) needed layers, some flowers and jewels as a finishing touch.
