Kid Craft: Crayon Box

BLOG -Erin Bassett - BoBunny - Crayons
To use up some of the scraps I had, I altered this crayon box.  I just cut the pieces to size and sanded down the edges of each piece once it was attached to the box by using my d-stress.  I then just added some embellishments.

TipFor the sharpener in the back...I painted around it with matching paint and punched a circle on the paper before I adhered it to the box.

Scrapbooking outside my element!

Having only nieces I tend to scrapbook girly things most of the time, so when I was assigned this BoBunny line for one of my design team projects at Remember When I was a bit outside my element and begged my friend Dana for pics of her adorable son!  

I used another one of the March sketched from Simple Scrapper to make this and had fun jazzing up the patterned background paper with some of the white metal i-rock studs.

I made those epoxy doo-dads with my Epiphany Crafts tool and used the "Graphically Speaking" Cricut cartridge (which is less then $20 here!!) to cut out that star border.

Scrapbook page: Bailey Dog

Do you remember that little puppy Bailey, my brother-in-law's dog?  Well she's all grown up now and the other day I snapped a photo of her and decided to scrapbook it.  I'm eventually going to create a "Dogs We Love" album with the layouts I've made of family and friends dogs.

BLOG Erin Bassett - Studio Calico Kit - BaileyAll the ingredients for this page with the exception of the Thickers that spell out her name are from a Studio Calico kit.  I accordion folded a the top strip of paper and then machine sewed it to my page.

Ribbon flower tip I created the ribbon flower by cutting two pieces of ribbon...on the first I did a gathering stitch along the bottom of the ribbon and then pulled it tight so that it formed a flower and then tied it off.  On the other ribbon I folded it almost in half and then did a gathering stitch along the fold, pulled it tight so it formed a flower and then tied it off.  I used Fabric Tac to glue the two flowers together and then topped off the center with a button & some bling.
