Xyron and Bo Bunny Blog Hop


I couldn't be more excited to work with Bo Bunny and Xyron this month, especially since I got to play with Bo Bunny's newest Key Lime collection!  Being in Hawaii, I think this collection was made for me!

1.  Our Water Baby Layout.  The Bo Bunny Key Lime Collection includes some fantastic papers that make scrapbooking a breeze.  I used the Cowabunga paper as the foundation of my layout.  And the Noteworthy die cut and journaling spot pack also makes embellishing the page super easy!


Supplies:  Patterned Paper (Bo Bunny - Key Lime); Die Cuts and Journaling Cards (Bo Bunny - Key Lime); Adhesives (Xyron Mega Runner, Xyron 5" Creative Station; Xyron 5" Creative Station Permanent Adhesive); Letter Stickers (American Crafts, October Afternoon, Studio Calico); Spray Mists (Studio Calico); Tim Holtz Distress Ink; American Crafts Precision Pen; Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher; Tim Holtz File Tabs Alterations Die.


To add a bit of more dimension to the layout, I cut apart another sheet of Cowabunga paper and then layered it onto the foundation sheet with some DIY Foam Tape.  Then, I simply layered a number of papers and die cuts/ journaling cards to make the photo mat/ journaling spot.


The title to the layout actually comes from my son's rash guard, which says "water baby."  What a cutie.


And if you haven't noticed already, I'm kindove obsessed with these whale shaped paper clips from Midori


2.  Aloha Sign.  Since moving to Hawaii, I have noticed that all of my neighbors have these adorable "Aloha" signs at their front door.  While I could have easily just purchased one from the nearby flea market, I have been hesitant...I am constantly thinking, "I could make that."  Well, fast foward six months and I have FINALLY made my own customized sign!


Supplies: Bo Bunny Key Lime Patterned Papers, Bo Bunny Key Lime Jewels, Xyron Creatopia - Permanent Adhesive, Xyron 5" Creative Station - Permanent Adhesive, Silhouette Cameo, Studio Calico Letter Stickers, Tim Holtz Distress Ink.

The Bo Bunny Key Lime Jewels added the perfect amount of dimension to the surfboard.  I am seriously in love.  I cannot wait to put this at the front of our house tomorrow!


3.  Sticker Chart.  Finally, since I am always trying to just use up all of my supplies, I used all of the scraps that were left on my desk after making the above projects to put together a quick sticker chart for Charlotte.  Even the letter stickers represent whatever I have on hand.  We have been using these sticker charts for the past few months and it has really proven to be an effective incentive program.


Supplies:  Patterned Paper (Bo Bunny Key Lime Collection); Xyron Mega Runner; Letter Stickers (October Afternoon, Sassafras).
