Hi everyone. Laurie here with my first project with the absolutely gorgeous Bo Bunny Botanical Journal collection. I cannot express how much I love this collection! The images and colors are exquisite.
The Bo Bunny Botanical Journal Details
I knew as soon as I received this I wanted to do a mini album. After much deliberation, I decided it made no sense to reinvent the wheel when Fotobella.com already had the perfect beginning. I used the Graphic 45 ATC Reictangle Pocket and Tag Album and just made some minor adjustments to give it my own spin.
For the cover, I trimmed down the large piece from the Noteworthy pack. I really wanted the beautiful image to be the main focus so I chose to do simple embellishments. The layered chipboard sticker and a chipboard butterfly were the perfect pieces.
A Look Inside
I added a diagonal pocket to the inside front and back covers to hold the two fabulous tags from the paper collection. I had to shorten them just a bit to fit inside. The album contains 4 page groups. Each group has a blank page, then two pages with pockets, and then another blank page. On each blank page, I added a flap to the front and back side to hold the cute seed packet cut aparts. There are 12 in the collection and I also used 4 cut aparts with just floral images.
I left the little atc tags that come with the album blank to be used for journaling. In the other 4 pockets, I added little tags from the Noteworthy collection. Behind each flap are two spots for photos.
Each of these includes a patterned photo mat and a solid one. On each solid mat, I added a small piece from the Noteworthy pack as a tuck spot for extra photos.
The Outside of the Bo Bunny Botanical Journal
To cover the spine, I measured and trimmed out a rectangle to go around the attached label. Then, I cut a small strip from a scrap and glued it down inside the frame. I used chipboard pieces for extra elements.
On the back of the album, I simply added a section of the beautiful butterfly border sticker. It was just enough to carry the botanical theme all around the cover.
How You Can Make One
Everything I used for this album can be found at the Fotobella.com online scrapbook store. They have a great variety of products to choose from and it is so easy to mix and match between collections.
These are the products I used:
I hope you have enjoyed the project and that you are inspired to create one of your own.
