Halloween Whoo-ligans!

Happy Thursday! OMG - I'm just lovin' all of this Halloween goodness! I can't wait to start decorating both the inside and outside of my house! Woo-hoo!

Designer Leah Schaeffer has made a too-cute Halloween Banner using the Bo Bunny Whoo-ligans collection for our viewing pleasure today! Take a look:

Halloween Banner by Leah Schaeffer

Leah made this banner for her niece who's birthday is close to Halloween. I'm in love with the cuteness of this banner! Look at those little characters that Leah fussy-cut from the Whoo-ligans Monsters paper! Love the embossing detail of the skull and crossbones and all of those handmade black roses! Wow! Great work, Leah!!!

Tomorrow is the beginning of October and the official start of the holiday season (at least for me it is!) We have some good stuff going on in the store the rest of the year and we're going to kick-start it tomorrow! Stay-tuned - you're going to love it!

Happy Halloween!

Well not quite, but I'm so excited that we've got Halloween-ish projects today! It's no secret that Designer Sandi Clarkson loves Graphic 45! Sandi had a chance to play with the Graphic 45 Hallowe'en in Wonderland collection and has created some gorgeous layouts for your viewing pleasure! Take a look:

Happy Halloween by Sandi Clarkson

How fun is this? I love all the fussy-cutting, distressing and detail work Sandi did on this layout! Cute picture of her daughter and SIL, too!

Happy Birthday by Sandi Clarkson

With Halloween being my favorite holiday, I'm super jealous of Sandi's granddaughter! LOL!!! How can you not love everything about this layout?! That Prima flower really pops off the page!

BFF by Sandi Clarkson

What a gorgeous color combination in this layout and I love that Mardi Gras photo! The Prima Bling really and sheer purple ribbon really pull the whole thing together!

Great work, Sandi! Be sure to check out Sandi's blog to see all of her gorgeous work!

More Bo Bunny Olivia!

It's Tuesday! We're almost caught up on the shipping! Thanks so much for your patience!

While we were away, Designer Andra Hoffman was at play! She shared three fantastic layouts last week using the Bo Bunny Olivia collection, but she was far from done! Today she has even more great projects for us using this beautiful collection! Take a look:

Friends Mini Album by Andra Hoffman

Andra used just about all of the papers from the Bo Bunny Olivia collection for this fun album! I love all the little touches she added to this: The distressing, the buttons and of course the flowers! Such gorgeous colors and a fantastic keepsake! Great work, Andra!

Andra wasn't done! She has two more fantastic layouts for us!

Best Friends by Andra Hoffman

Love this layout! Brown and pink is one of my favorite color combinations! Love that butterfly at the top with the Prima Crystals! Gorgeous!

Precious by Andra Hoffman

I love how Andra used strips of different Bo Bunny Olivia papers under her photo. I adore all the bling on her chipboard title! So fun!

Stay-tuned for more design team inspiration!

We're Back!

Happy Monday! We're back and ready to roll! We're going to need a few days to get caught up on shipping. We appreciate your patience!

Our fabulous designers have been busy while we were gone! We have a full week of wonderful inspiration and since it's fall and going into October, we're going to be seeing lots of fall and Halloween inspiration! How fun! Let's take a look:

Framed Mom Layout by Nanne Harry

Nanne used scraps left over from the Imaginisce Apple Cider collection to create this darling framed layout! I love how Nanne pieced it to look like an artist's printer tray! Beautiful!

Kitchen Closed by Teri Berrios

I love this over-sized clip that Teri altered with the Basic Grey Pyrus collection! Holy cow, this is cute! Teri painted this 9" clip green and added in a little distressing, covered it with some fun Basic Grey Pyrus papers and added in some embellishments! She used Basic Grey Pyrus Woolies and Bloomers and cut some embellishments with her Cricut for this fun home decor project! I think I'm going to have to scrap lift this one!

Now for the winner of the Bo Bunny Cambridge Card Kit... congratulations to:

Bo Bunny Olivia Card Kit & A Giveaway!

Happy Thursday and Friday! Woo-hoo! It's a long weekend for us!

As you all know, I just love to make cards! I make them for every and any occasion! I normally like to come up with my own designs, but sometimes you just need a really quick card! Know what I mean? Fortunately, Bo Bunny is helping us out with pre-made Card Kits from three of their fantastic new releases: Cambridge, Olivia and Noel.

These card kits are wonderful! They have everything you need to create 8 really quick cards: Pre-scored die-cut cards, chipboard elements, rub-ons, easy-to-follow instructions and envelopes! There are also lots of extra rub-ons in case you want to change the greeting or use some paper and make your own cards!

I put together some of the cards from the Olivia Card Kit. Take a look:

Aren't these great? They took no time at all to put together and they are super-cute just the way they are! If you do have extra time and don't need the cards immediately, why not have some fun with these by adding some of your own personal touches?!

You could add a button and some ribbon, or...

You can add in a few pearls, or...

Create a glazed effect with a pen, or...

Bling it up with some Stickles!

The possibilities are endless! At only $14.49 (our price) these kits are a terrific value and lots of fun to play with!

So, are you ready for your chance to try one of these kits out? Leave a comment below and let us know if you create cards and if so, tell us about your favorite holiday or occasion to make cards! You have until 11:59pm Sunday (9/26) night to leave a comment. We will have a random drawing and announce the winner first thing Monday morning! The winner will receive a Bo Bunny Cambridge Card Kit! Good luck!!!

Happy Weekend!

Today we have some inspiration for you from two of our designers using the gorgeous Bo Bunny Olivia collection! Take a look:

Willow by Andra Hoffman

Daddy's Girls by Andra Hoffman

Andra used Bo Bunny Olivia: Cashmere, Dot, Honeydew and Stripe for this striking layout. She also added some Prima Flowers and Bling, Basic Grey Brads and a Fiskars Punch. What beautiful girls -- Daddy sure is lucky!

Andra used Bo Bunny Olivia: Olivia, Baby's Breath, Dot Moonlight, Stripe and Poetry on this beautiful layout. She also used Prima Flowers, Basic Grey Chipboard Letters and Brads, Fiskars Punch, EK Punch and Dymo Label. I love the photo as well as the row of brads at the bottom. Great detail!

Beautiful Soul by Sandi Clarkson

This is a photo of Sandi when she was just a little girl! Sandi used Bo Bunny Olivia as the main background of her layout. She added in Olivia Stripe as a photo mat and used the Cutouts for her journaling. She also used a MS Punch, Webster's Pages Bloomers and Prima Flowers from her stash. Simply gorgeous!

Autumn Fun with Imaginisce Apple Cider

Happy Tuesday! Today is the Autumnal Equinox. It's officially the start of fall and I'm so happy! I just wish I lived in an area that had a fall!

Designer Nanne Harry has created one of her gorgeous mini albums for us using the very fall Imaginisce Apple Cider collection. Take a look:

Autumn Fun by Nanne Harry

Nanne used the Imaginisce Apple Cider 6x6 Card Pad to create this super-cute mini! She used chipboard and envelopes, Prima Flowers and Bling, Ranger Inks, chalks, and her Cricut for all those cute little die-cuts. I'm in love with all of those pockets and tags! They are perfect for adding extra photos and journaling!

Great work as usual, Nanne! Be sure to check out Nanne's blog for more detail on this album and to see more of her work!

We've got more fall inspiration for you this week so be sure to come back!

Finally Fall!

Happy Monday! There's only one day until the beginning of fall! I'm hoping the weather will cool down over here, but the nights have been getting longer and the temperature is nice early in the morning! Some of my neighbors have even starting decorating for Halloween! It's definitely my favorite time of the year!

Speaking of Halloween... you have to know two things about me: 1) My favorite day of the week is Friday, and 2) My absolute favorite holiday is Halloween! I'm super excited as we head into fall because we get to work with all of my favorite fall and Halloween papers! YAY!

Designer Teri Berrios has made this gorgeous Halloween Mini Album using the Echo Park Happy Halloween collection to get us ready for the weeks to come. Take a look:

'Happy Halloween Mini' by Teri Berrios

Just look at all of that work! Teri used the Echo Park Halloween Papers, Prima Flowers, Basic Grey Bling It Spider Web and Spider, Bo Bunny Whoo-ligans Noteworthy and Black Tulle Petal from the store! She also added a bunch of embellishments and stamps from her stash! The amazing thing is that this whole project only took her about 6 hours to put together!

WOW, is all I have to say! For more detail, be sure to check out Teri's blog! She is even going to post a video on YouTube that we will have a link to on Facebook!

Just a quick note for this week: we will have more fall inspiration for you from our fabulous Design Team and a giveaway! The store will be closed beginning Thursday, September 23 and we will reopen on Monday, September 27. Orders can still be placed online, however, shipping will be delayed by a couple of days. We will have a note on the main page as well as in the shopping cart about the closure and shipping times.

Happy Crafting!
