What can you make for just over $21.00? (Part three)

This is the third and final post of some projects I created using ONE - Bo Bunny Paper and Embellishment pack I call "The Bundle".  If you want to check out post one click HERE  If you want to check out post two click HERE.

The final collection of designer papers Bo Buny included in "The Bundle" is called Mistletoe.  I had kind of a hard time with the last set mainly because I had run out of time for my challenge but also ... well I think i am weary of red and green and Christmas themed projects right now.  But!! I hope you'll agree "The Bundle" has a LOT to offer so far and "Mistletoe" does not disappoint!
I selected several papers from the 12 x 12" cardstock included in"The Bundle" and cut them in varying length banners.  I attached them (and my darling grandson's picture) to the page by sewing them just at the top. That is the only way they are attached.  I used Washi tape to hold them in place while I ran the page through the sewing machine.  (I LOVE Washi tape! : ) it is both a nifty embellishment and a handy tool!)

The ornaments featured in the upper left are Rub-Ons as are the snowflakes scattered around the lower right side of the page.  The rest of the embies are brads from "The bundle" The only elements not form "The Bundle" are the teeny little ribbon banners sewn to the upper left and the plain old paper clip. : )


 Here is a 12 x 12" page I created using the elements from "The Bundle" are you sick of me saying that yet LOL I'm giggling every time I write it. 

OK, so as I mentioned I am very intimidated by Scrapbook Pages in general because I have done so few of them.  While I was laboring over how to tackle the task at hand I got to thinking.... I get my "Mojo" from great sketch sites like Mojo Monday so why not  see if I could get some sketch help for scrapbook pages too.  Sure enough! there are oodles of "Sketches" on-line. The results are that I have become MORE intimidated.  I was really impressed with the detail and art that goes into many peoples scrapbook pages.  But I have decided to stick to cards after this! Scrapbook pages are way out of my league!!

I embossed the white strip of paper with the Snowflake Cuttlebug folder.  My "Title" Fa La la la la la" is a sticker from.... you know! as are the sweet little brads.  The "journaling" tag was printed on my computer. The little present on the photo section is a Rub-On. : )
This A-2 sized "Countdown to Christmas" card was fun to make.  I embossed the paper with the numbers printed on it with a Numbers Cuttlebug embossing folder. I also added two little brads in the lower left corner - one says 12 the other 25.  "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas" sentiment is a sticker.

I only created two cards with this paper series because I figured my friend, Barb's, customers might feel like I do about Christmas cards but I also acknowledged that many of them may be putting their Christmas memory books together - that is why I did more with the scrapbook pages.
I really like how this card turned out : ) It is simple and sweet and FLAT for easy mailing : ) The "Jingle Bells" is a Rub-On.  And an aside to "plug" Bo Bunny... I LOVE Rub-Ons and buy lots of them but HATE using them and rarely try! so when I tell you these are the BEST Rub-Ons I have ever used! that is a good compliment!!!!! : ) Very clear and easy to use.  You can apply them with only light rubbing to transfer them... LOVE em!

Last but not least is a little bonus that Bo Bunny added to "The Bundle".  There were only two sheets of the polka dot paper (which had the green paper on the reverse) and two of these amazing laser cut and beautifully detailed wreath papers in "The Bundle" - oh, and a pack of glittered embellishments.  There was not much to work with by way of mixing and matching papers but this pretty page made EVEN me! happy!!
The brown bow was added from my stash as was the velum for the photo placement guide.

I hope you've enjoyed these projects as much as I have.  I had the pleasure of seeing Barb display all of these projects in her store yesterday.  I hope they help her sell all of..... "THE BUNDLES" heehee I couldn't resist saying it one more time : )

Please check out THIS POST for all the details and a chance to win a FREE card in my monthly give-away. 

Have a wonderful Saturday!!
