So I decided to pull out a Bo Bunny line that is HANDS DOWN my favorite line of theirs. It is called Sun Kissed and it came out a number of years ago. I was foolish back then and did not buy all of the coordinating embellishments but I still managed to put this layout together using all Bo Bunny product.
Here is to another month of blue skies- hopefully!!!!

I used a few tear out tickets from this line as well. I learned how to incorporate embellishments like this at Crop & Create- thanks to Vicki Boutin!

I found some inspiration on Bella Blvd.'s website for this layout. I used the Baby Girl line instead of the new birthday line that was used in the layout on the website. The paper is all Bella Blvd. except for the white Bazzill cardstock which I used for the main background paper. The blue border is from the Baby Boy sticker sheet. My buttons are random buttons that I have collected, as are the paper flowers. I used some Ciao Chipboard elements in the arch on the left side of the page. I stickled the butterfly to give it some sparkle!
The letter stickers were also from the Baby Girl line which makes coordinating elements so easy with Bella products!
I used a rub-on from KaiserKraft and put it right on the picture.
Here is a closer look at the embellishments- a mixture of flowers, buttons, and chipboard!

Watermelon is one of my favorite summer treats! I decided to use my Cricut and the cartridge "Simply Charmed" to make this cute card. I cut the watermelon at 4' and adhered it to a folded piece of white cardstock. I then cut around the watermelon shape to get the card. The rub-on is from K.I. and I added black buttons to look like seeds. Looks good enough to eat!

This collection is from last year and it is called "Finally Fall". Bella certainly makes it easy to stick with one line since they have all the embellishments to match the paper line. Other than the twine, Doodlebug brads, and Bazzill cardstock the whole layout was from the same line.

This card was pretty easy to make. I was flipping through the new Card Creations magazine and saw a card that used black and white in this simple fashion. I did change it up a bit by adding a flower sticker instead of a bow. I pop dotted the sticker as well to add dimension. I added a tiny clear bling to the flower in the Cute Cut which is hard to see in this picture. Can you see my ribbon mistake? Ok, so I am definitely not perfect and I forgot to cut the card so the ribbon went all the way to the end after I made the mistake of cutting my ribbon too short for the card! I will do that before I give it to someone though. I have been told there are no mistakes in scrapping- only opportunities to be creative!!!! So next time you make a mistake, don't worry too much- just look for a way to make it a creative opportunity! :)

So after finally receiving my Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine I found a little inspiration in an ad for Doodlebug. The new Fancy Frills and Teensy Type stickers are SO cute and colourful! The ad is below and I copied the idea of using the border strips to make a card. I also added Doodle bling in various spots on the card. One of the best things about Doodlebug is the bright, happy colours!
