This month I can't tell you how thrilled I was to receive the BoBunny Gabrielle line to play with for the TSF design team!
I received gorgeous double sided papers, a sticker sheet which included mini alpha stickers (I just love those!), a sheet of large and small alphas from Bella Blvd., some trim, a fabric blossom plus four mini wooden spools.
Well I just couldn't bring myself to cut into the gorgeous papers, so I decided to use them as background paper and craft some handmade embellishments to enhance the already beautiful papers.
First I stamped and embossed some butterflies since they totally went with this line. I also cut circles from organza and trimmed them with coordinating Stickles to make these flowers. The big blue brad is from MME.
Here is the whole layout of our arrival in Helsinki Finland last summer!
This is also Helsinki. I just loved the art deco tower on the train station. I took so many pictures of it at different times of day. Even at nearly midnight it was still quite bright during the Scandinavian summer. I added the clouds cut from cream felt and the butterflies punched with my new Martha punch. I just love that thing!
I also crafted these blue papers flowers. They are kind of like the old kleenex flowers you used to make for weddings!
This is Berlin. We visited a "Schon Schloss" or beautiful castle called Charlottenburg. I started these two pages by splashing some white paint on the background paper. I added the big silver Prima butterfly and some more stamped/embossed butterflies that I cut out. A bit of trim and stitching finished it off!
I also wanted to add some seed beads to this layout so I strung my banner with a rope of beads!
What a wonderful stash I got to work with this month. Thank you ladies and thanks for looking! Be sure to head on over to TSF to check out what my talented fellow DT did!
