my2angels - Graphic 45/Bo Bunny

This month at my2angels is all about men and boys and with this in mind Tracy has 15% off everything in her Boys Section till 30th September and the new Graphic 45 An ABC Primer papers will be discounted to $1.60 until 15th September.

I've been having a ball using the new Graphic 45 An ABC Primer and Bo Bunny Etc. papers that Tracy sent me in this month's parcel of goodies.. the perfect papers for a grungy boy LO.   

I have made a couple of LO's and cards with these ranges and will share a few of them today.

Check It Out

Graphic 45 papers are always fabulous for a grunge LO and I have used the ABC Primer Calico Kids paper and a book page under my pic of Luke's cute little butt (he's not happy about me scrapping this pic... ha ha ha).  The book page was inked with one of the NEW Wild Honey Tim Holtz Distress Stains which have just been added to the store.   The background paper is watermark from the new Bo Bunny ETC range which is another awesome vintage range and mixes beautifully with the Graphic 45.  You all know how I can't help but mix different ranges, so I have added a piece of Basic Grey Jovial Flannel Pyjamas under the Bo Bunny paper to frame it and add some contrast.  Even though this is part of a Christmas range the reverse sides of these papers make the most fabulous backgrounds.  I am always checking out the plain reverse side of pp's to use as my backgrounds and always stock up on old ranges when they are on special as I much prefer to use these than plain cardstock. Pop on over and check out this LINK as these papers are a great buy at 72 cents, but get in quick.

I used one of Tracy's handmade Love Pins, some stickers from the Bo Bunny etc sheet, a Tim Holtz game spinner and made a flower with the Sizzix Paper Rosette Die for my cluster and had to add one of these fab genuine vintage tickets which Tracy has in store at a bargain price of 10 for $1.20.  Couldn't create a LO without using one of Tracy's fab charms and I used the camera which I coloured with some Tim Holtz alcohol ink to give it an aged look.

The new  Tim Holtz Distress Stains are so versatile and I used Black Soot to colour the Scrapware chippie photo corners.. they are a fantastic product and I can't wait to stock up on all the colours.  Finished off with some black ric rac and some black paint splatters for a bit of contrast.

4 - Happy Birthday

Made a quick cute boy birthday card with some of the offcuts from the Graphic 45 An ABC Primer papers.  The base is the reverse of the building blocks.  I used some black cardstock which I embossed with the Tim Holtz music embossing folder and then cut around the little boy on the Happy Go Lucky paper, which I layered on top and then added a strip of the letters from the School Days paper.  I punched the no 4 from the ABC Prima paper with a circle punch and underlayed it with a larger circle punched piece of the tartan paper to make it a 4 year old boys birthday card.  The Happy Birthday greeting is from the Bo Bunny etc. sticker sheet.

Stay tuned as I have more cards and LO's to share with these gorgeous Bo Bunny and Graphic 45 ranges.
