Bo Bunny has a dreamy line of papers called Beautiful Dreamer. The colour scheme is soft, romantic and well, dreamy! The possibilities for scrapbooking and card making are endless with this line. This kit contains 3 single page layouts, and one double page layout. While the lure of riding a bike is simply not my thing (ask some of my best friends!), the bicycle patterned paper simply called my name immediately. The soft purple and green tones are warm and inviting. To raise the bar on this layout, I’ve added flowers and pearls to the bike basket and wrapped the title around the wheel of the bike. This layout was the perfect background to a recent photo of my husband and I. I’m tickled with the overall result.
The second layout is titled “Spread Your Wings and FLY”. The backdrop for this layout is the Illusion patterned paper. Those birds and books are so interesting and visually appealing. I chose to use pictures of my granddaughter Maddy as she prepared for her final ballet recital in June. She took her set of wings, and I was lucky enough to capture a couple of quick photos before she changed her mind and took them off before the recital began. With or without wings, she made a very sweet ballerina. I love the soft feel this layout creates.
The last single layout is titled Beautiful Dreamer and uses the patterned paper by the same name. Green and burgundy pearls, brads, gold accents and organza ribbon all add to create a light and airy feel.
The final 2 page layout in this kit uses two coordinating patterned papers. You will find so many things to embellish this kit with, including a full sticker page, chipboard package, die cut package and a 12″ x 12″ letter and number sticker sheet by Bella BLVD. For this layout, I decided to highlight our visit to the Eiffel Tower, a dream I never imagined would come true! Paris is a wonderfully romantic city, and the perfect setting for this layout.
I hope this kit inspires you to scrapbook. It’s a perfect combination for the romantic, travel or precious moments in your life. This kit will be available soon at the Younique Scrapbook store in Mount Forest.
Some people are extra special. Margie Dinsmore is one of those people. Margie’s played an important part in our family for…well, forever! Margie is a RN who cared for patients in the Intensive Care Unit. Not an easy job. Margie was my Grandmother’s friend. She babysat my Dad and his siblings, myself and my siblings, my children and many, many more. Not an easy job!
Margie volunteered her time over years and years to the benefit of many. She walks everywhere, choosing her feet over transportation whenever she can. She still lives on her own, as independent as she can be.
Today we celebrate her 101st Birthday! She remains a kind, selfless, loving woman. Wherever you are today, raise a glass to a remarkable woman who sets a high example of making a difference in other people’s lives.
Happy Birthday Margie, we LOVE YOU!
I’m so excited to share this kit with you! PHOTOPLAY’s “This Guy” line of papers and embellishments is the perfect lineup to showcase that special man in your life. Whether it be your husband, father, son, uncle, or grandfather, this paper lineup will give you the masculine feel you need to highlight the men who mean so much to you.
Those of you who know me, know that I am extremely proud of our son Sean. Sean is a Corporal in the Army and he is posted in Edmonton. He is passionate about his career choice and his commitment to our country. What more could a Mom ask for? His commitment has meant sacrifices for all of us, but he serves with pride and focus.
Naturally, when I received the “This Guy” lineup of products, it was an easy decision to build my layouts featuring Sean. This double page layout focuses on the patterned papers in the line. Additions to this page include some stickers, a masculine washi tape and smart black enamel embellishments.
These pictures are a compilation of photos taken during our recent trip to visit Sean and his wonderful girlfriend Megan. Thank you for putting others before yourself everyday Sean. You will always be “My Hero”.
The “Play Hard” layout incorporates additional patterned papers, stickers and hand stitching to add dimension. When I saw these two stickers, I instantly knew what picture I would use! I must say, there are advantages to no longer doing your kids laundry!! What endurance and determination. I treasure another picture of Sean crossing the finish line of the Spartan Race, laughing and smiling. What an accomplishment!
The last layout is simple, yet makes a clear statement. One of the many things I love so much about Sean, is that he makes me laugh every single time we talk. These layouts are a treasure to me.
When you complete your kit, you’ll find you have plenty of paper and stickers left over to create several masculine cards. The opportunities are as limitless as your imagination.
Who do you treasure and wish to showcase in your scrapbooks? With Father’s Day quickly approaching, you’ll find this is a great kit to highlight the special men in our lives. Look for this kit soon at Younique Country Retreat and Too Younique.
Happy Mother’s Day to all my female friends and family out there! It’s a day to feel special and proud of our accomplishments for sure. I will always be thankful for the kind, loving and generous Mom I had. She guided and mentored me to be the woman I am today. She would be proud of the family that continues to grow and enjoy life’s journey in her memory. Miss you dearly Mom,
I am so lucky to call myself Mom to two beautiful children. I am blessed daily to live across the street from my daughter. She is an AMAZING Mom and daycare provider. Together with her hubby Jeff, they are raising two incredibly loving grandchildren. Maddy and Owen, being your Nana is the best thing ever! This layout was based on a Mother’s Day picture from last year. Still brings smiles to my face everytime I look at it! Love you so much Lindsay!
Our son lives out West. He is posted to Edmonton in the military. Sean, not a day goes by that I don’t say thanks for your commitment and service to our country. You listened to me growing up and followed my guidance when I told you to follow your passion in life! I am grateful for all you bring to our lives, and proud of the life you are building with Megan. This layout is one of several that feature Sean in a new kit that will arrive shortly at Younique.
You can see I have much to smile about today and everyday! My heart is bursting with love for you all.
It’s the last day of April and I’m gearing up for lots of “Fun in the Sun” this summer! Summer is a special time for us. A chance to return to our family cottage on the Severn River. I was so fortunate to spend my summers growing up on the Severn, and also fortunate to let my children do the same. Now I am blessed to share that experience with my grandchildren. There’s really nothing quite like reliving it through the eyes of a child!
Bella BLVD’s “Fresh Market” papers are an excellent backdrop to showcasing the highlights of our last summer up north. Our cottage is boat access only, and Maddy and Owen love to go out in the boat every single day. One of their favourite boat rides is to travel down to the marina and get ice cream. What could be better on a hot summer day?!
This double page layout will teach you a new technique with floss. The combination of patterned papers and die cuts, give this layout a light, airy, and fun feel. The kit makes use of many stickers, including many border stickers and lettering.
“Today is a Happy Day” pretty much sums it all up. Two playful die cut scalloped borders and colourful floss help compliment the feel of this page. This just makes me want to go out and play!
The last page in this kit continues to emphasize having fun outdoors. Paper and sticker borders are utilized once again, including the use of the stems for the pinwheels. Pinwheels just call you to come and play outside – so take some time to document your “fun in the sun”, and enjoy the results for years to come!
This kit and more are available at Younique and Too Younique! Watch out for more kits coming soon. Lots of great things in the works!
I just finished preparing my Easter baskets for our two wonderful grandchildren. Thought I’d share the cards I made to put in their baskets. Have I mentioned how much I LOVE my Silhouette? These bunnies are just adorable. Hope Maddy and Owen enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them. Happy Easter everyone!
The Echo Park “Little Man” collection designed by Lori Whitlock is a winner. I had so much fun working with this line and of course highlighting some favourite pictures of our grandson Owen!
This bright bold red background was the perfect patterned paper for our little man and his blue raincoat and green boots. The world is just full of mystery and discovery for little boys, and Owen is no exception. ALWAYS running and exploring, this little boy keeps us on our toes. I made use of lots of stickers from this collection, added some green enamel dots and stitched an outline around the larger stars for a little more dimension.
Next up, another bold one page layout featuring lots of patterned paper in this line.
To enhance the pie chart, I used more of the blue and white twine and multiple stickers. The “he’s all boy” title is die cut right into the background paper and backed with white for impact. This picture of Owen was taken in 2014, and perfectly fit the feel of this page.
And lastly, for something a little softer and dreamier, another one page layout totally focused on the star theme. These two star papers from the collection really inspired this design. You may have noticed that the cut out star from the top blue paper, was utilized in the two page layout featured earlier. The stitching theme was carried throughout all 3 pages, but you could easily modify by using a marker if stitching just isn’t your thing. The layout was completed with a fitting die cut title, also included in your kit.
The Little Man kit, and others are available now at Younique, Too Younique and Younique Scrapbooking and Crafts, the newest edition in Mount Forest. Go check it out!
For all of those with a special little man in their life! Echo Park’s “Bundle of Joy Boy” papers and stickers will help you commemorate this special time in your life.
