File Folder Pocket Mini Album- BoBunny

Hello Friends! 

Today I'm sharing my last design team project for BoBunny. 
It's been a wonderful two years on the BoBunny Design Team. I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to work with their beautiful products along with the best designers in the industry. After a great two year run I've decided to take a break from design work and not stay on for another term. 

I wanted to do a knock out project for my final piece and I created a file folder pocket mini album. I have always been inspired by a wonderful designer - Cherry Nelson. You can find her blog here. She's been doing these file folder tag pockets for years that I have always loved. I don't like to do exactly the same type of project as someone else so I always set aside my desire to create one. 
Then one day I had a brainstorm to do the file folder pocket but include mini album type items within it instead of tags.

I created the file folder pocket then tucked a flip book, an oversized tag, pocket with tags and some envelopes and small tags that fit inside.

I used the Juliet Collection for this project. The outside of the envelope is stitched and covered with the gorgeous Juliet papers and tons of flowers!

A little close up of the front of the pocket.

This is  a pocket with slots for tags. The back has a little envelope with two tags tucked into it.

A better look at the pocket and slots with the oversized tag in the background.

More views of the front of the pocket! I used a BoBunny doily and blossoms on the front.

This is the front cover of the flip book.

Inside I have a spot for a photo on the left and the flip pages on the right.
I also created two little envelopes and tags.

Another view of the inside. The BoBunny rub ons highlight the photo mat. These are the best rub ons. They go on without a hitch!

Finally the back of the file folder. 

Such a fun project and so beautiful in the BoBunny Juliet collection.

Thanks so much for stopping by and for all your support these past two years to those who took the time to comment. I truly appreciate it!

First Reveal- Scraps of Darkness July Kit

Hello Blog Friends!

Today I am sharing my first project created with our beautiful July Kit
"Tracey's Artful Adventure"
It's always an adventure to receive a kit from Scraps of Darkness.
They never disappoint! You can find our kits ------- HERE.
Melinda just redesigned the site. Go check it out! It looks amazing!

This months kit features BoBunny Penny Emporium and Kaisercrafts ScrapYard Collection. Of course I love BoBunny but I also love Kaisercraft and really adore the grungy background pattern on these papers.

Documented layout created by Lisa Novogrodski for Scraps of Darkness using the July 2015 kit Traceys Artful Adventure

This Elements Add On contained a gorgeous piece of Blue Fern chipboard. I just LOVE Blue Fern... sigh...
This is the Timeless Floral Corner. I primed it with gesso then painted on some Lindys "Silhouette Silver" (found in the color add on)  and then embossed with Stampedous Encrusted Jewels in purple (found in the creativity add on)

I LOVE the encrusted jewels. The photo shows the detailing pretty well here.

Amazing with the purple and bronze tones for the embossing. I just love it!

Also found in the Elements add on are Primas - Mechanicals - Winged.
I used several alcohol inks on it.

The background work is composed of stamping along with some paint work with Lindy's Magicals in Cowabunga Copper. This was included in the main kit along with most of the florals you see. I've added a few blue and peach ones from my stash.
