If you are looking for inspiration and ideas for your kits purchased at Lil' Lamb's Boutique, you've come to the right place. Some of the best paper crafters on the web are here to keep you up to date with new kits, tutorials and project ideas.

Bo Bunny ~ Delilah & Gypsy

It must be Bo Bunny week here at Lil' Lambs Boutique. We have been rockin' the new lines out left and right. I think Bo Bunny really outdid themself for the last half of the year. Here are 2 more fantastic lines with excellent color combinations.

First up, we have the Delilah line. Tammy made a gorgeous kit of the month using this line and amazingly it sold out before I even had a chance to get my layout example done. But don't worry, there are still paper kits left for this line. Isn't the huge flower die cut paper gorgeous!

They also came up with an opposing similar line in their Gypsy paper kit. As you can see here, it worked great for my companion page and you can float each set either feminine or masculine, depending on your scrapping needs. They really are quite versatile.

The papers are all double sided, which I love, because I get twice as many choices. So get to it and let's see what gorgeous creations you make with your new Bo Bunny products.

Bo Bunny ~ St. Nick

So, it's August. Are you ready to start working on those Christmas cards and layouts? No? You mean 90 degrees doesn't put you in the Christmas spirit? I have a hard time scrapping/card making out of my current season. So I was looking for a way to use this amazing paper by Bo Bunny, called St. Nick,
for something besides Christmas! How about for an apple card! Red and green are classic Christmas colors, but you CAN use them for other projects too...take a look-see:

It's a great way to use up Christmas scraps!

Of course, I used my Copic Markers to color in the apple stamp! The Copic Markers are on back order right now, but Tammy should be getting a shipment in soon...

Ho, Ho, Ho! Thanks for taking a peek :0)

Cosmo Cricket ~Earth Love~ Deluxe Kit

Cosmo Cricket has done it AGAIN. How?? How do they come out with the cooooolest paper time and time again? How? Oh, I guess I shouldn't worry, and just be happy they do!

Tammy created a wonderful kit using Cosmo Cricket's Earth Love and some wonderful coordinating goodies (bling AND buttons!) to go along with the beautiful paper. Full of fall colors, clouds, spots, dots, stripes and cute sayings, the paper does not disappoint! It made me think about back to school, so I am trying hard to catch up with my school scrapping! Here's the page I made from the kit

Sorry the picture is not one of my best...believe me...this is some cute paper and a great kit!

Tis The Season...to start some cardmaking!

It seems I can never get started early enough to accomplish my yearly goal of making all my Christmas cards. So, I decided to start now.

Let's see, that's 1 down and 99 to go....I better order a few more card kits. I made the card below using the Mini Card Kit (Bo Bunny's Tis the Season) from Tammy. This line is so classic, that you will have some great cards to mail at Christmastime.

If you're not a cardmaker but just enjoy the pleasure of making layouts, you can still scrap some wonderful memories with the Scrapbook Paper kit, like I did below. You can see close ups and ideas, here on my blog.

Below are some examples from our Design Team.

Cheryl used the new Gypsy line from Bo Bunny to make this card. The bird and flowers are colored using the new Light Alcohol Inks by Ranger.

In this card, Cheryl colored in the fairies and flower using Prisma colored pencils and then added the shine with a coating of Glossy Accents by Ranger.

Finally, Tammy grabbed the adorable All Kinds of Happy Cupcake stamp by Imaginisce and filled it in using Stickles by Ranger, for a sparkling, fun birthday card.

What will your color method of choice be?
