Today, I’m sharing the first project that I created for the 2nd Round BoBunny Design Team auditions. We were asked to create 2 new projects using product sent by BoBunny. The product that I received was the Firecracker Collection. I enjoyed working with the collection on both projects. The collection is perfect for 4th of July memories and I can hardly wait to add 2016 Fourth of July pics to this album.
The Firecracker Collection is packed with beautiful vibrant colors, patterns and action elements. The coordinating pieces within the collection made creating this mini album easy and fun. The base of the album was created with chipboard and paper bags providing just the right support for the multiple layers of patterned papers and embellishments that this collection offers. The buttons and layered chipboard stickers added perfect detail to the album.
All patterned papers were sanded to achieve a vintage and aged effect. The sanding was very simple and the exposing of the white core in the paper added great detail. The fun elements that I used were from the Firecracker Noteworthy pack. I used the Noteworthy tabs on page 1 for fun appeal and added a folded card to enable journaling on the inside. The bottom center of the card was punched out using a 1” punch to enable the chipboard button to be used as an interactive textural component to the page. A raw laser cut was added to page 2 to coordinate with the use of the brown paper bags and really provided a sweet addition to the album. More Noteworthy elements were used on page 2 to continue the theme.
Pages 3 & 4 show additional fun elements from the Firecracker Noteworthy pack on a paper bag page. The banner was cut into 2 pieces to be used on both pages. The kid die cuts are so adorable and I felt compelled to incorporate them in this fashion-representing the fun and sweet sentiment of the collection. The use of paper bags offered pocket options. The chipboard sticker and gem on page 3 provides easy access to the pocket and adds an additional page for photos or memorabilia.
Page 5 & 6 show more uses of the chipboard stickers and how easy they can be used within the album. The chipboard sticker frame adds an opportunity for a photo and it sits on a layered card to enable more journaling options.
Page 7 & 8 provides more opportunities for photos. The larger decorative die cuts from the Firecracker Noteworthy pack were folded and inserted into the album as a page (shown on page 8). This was a super fun way to add a non-traditional page.
The album is bound with coils. I added some flexible wired ribbon and attached coordinating charms from the Firecracker Ephemera pack and chipboard stickers.
I hope that you have enjoyed reading all about this fun collection and my mini album using it. My next project using this collection will be posted this week.
