Leaky Shed & BoBunny Team Up ~ Christmas Tags by Tracey Sabella


Leaky Shed and BoBunny are teaming up all December long to inspire you with fabulous projects and products!

It's Tracey here to share some special Christmas tags combining the gorgeous products from Leaky Shed Studio and BoBunny. It's become a tradition for me to create special handcrafted ornaments for each of our children for Christmas. This year, I have decorated fabulous Leaky Shed ornaments and attached them to tags created with beautiful BoBunny products. They can use the tag as a decor piece or remove the ornaments to use on their trees.


Tips & Techniques
This tree isn't really designed to be an ornament, however, decorated and backed with lovely BoBunny paper, it turned out to be a darling one. I painted the chipboard white, then heat embossed with sparkly holographic embossing powder. I edged parts of the tree with a snow marker, then added more sparkle with dabs of BoBunny Gold Glitter Paste and Mocha Gems. The music paper backing the tree was spritzed with green Glimmer Mist. I cut the little packages from BoBunny paper and wrapped the tree trunk and packages with jute twine.

I cut this snowflake from corrugated cardboard, dry brushed with white gesso, sprinkled with silver glitter mix, dabbed with Gold Glitter Paste, and finished off by centering with a Mocha gem.

This tag is for our son, and I wanted to have a masculine feel. I changed up the BoBunny Chipboard stickers by arranging the "JOY" letters onto the ruler piece and inked the edges.

I painted this Snowflake Scroll Ornament using gold on the rim and white for the snowflake, leaving the scrollwork bare. The scrollwork is brushed with BoBunny Copper Glitter Paste and the snowflake with Silver Glitter Paste. The tag is splattered with white drawing ink for a snowy effect.

I cut this darling deer tag from BoBunny paper and distressed the edges before wrapping with twine. I backed it with burlap and white chicken wire. I created the background snowflake by misting through a stencil with BoBunny Sugar Glimmer Spray and when dry stenciled again with Silver Glitter paste.

This ornament is super easy to create. I painted the Leaky Shed Studio Snowflake Ornament with white gesso and when dry brushed lightly with BoBunny Silver Glitter Paste and centered with a BoBunny Pearl from the Powder Mountain Gems.

The tag is stamped randomly with the BoBunny It Is Written stamp, misted with BoBunny Gold Glimmer Spray, the splattered with white drawing ink.

There are so many beautiful elements and tags on the BoBunny papers. I've cut out some of them to finish off my tag. I've inked the edges and splattered with more of the white ink. The flower is layered with BoBunny Christmas Collage Petals and centered with a Mocha Gem. I had some overspray of Gold Glimmer spray on my craft mat and rubbed my flower through it to highlight the tips. I've punched layers of Christmas Collage paper for the bottom and edged them by brushing with Gold Glimmer Spray.

Leaky Shed & Bo Bunny Team Up/ Jingle



Leaky Shed and Bo Bunny are teaming up all December long to inspire you with fabulous projects and products!
My layout features our brand new grand daughter who is my favorite little elf this season.  Her little elf hat was perfect for
the Bo Bunny Candy Cane Lane Collection!  I first spritzed my background paper with Bo Gold Glimmer Spray!
I layered a couple of different papers from the collection and then added gorgeous chipboard products from Leaky Shed!
I used the large snowflake border and snowflake corner.


I painted the chipboard white and then added Bo Bunny Glitter paste.  So easy to use and adds just the right amount of sparkle!  After I added my chipboard to my page, I then added the layered chipboard Santa Frame to my page along with the title cut with my Silhouette.  I added just a bit of Bo Bunny Double Dot Jewels to add a bit of sparkle to my baby girl's page!

Leaky Shed Studio and BoBunny Team Up: Naughty or Nice????

Leaky Shed Studio and BoBunny are teaming up the entire month of December to bring Holiday Inspiration to your home.
Are you a list maker?  I am, especially at Christmas--here I've created some Naughty Or Nice notebooks for little gifties for my friends.  The Bo Bunny Candy Cane Lane papers + Leaky Shed Studio chipboard 6x6 Bracket album = perfect for SIX sweet pressies!

First, I chop each large chipboard album page in half, leaving one hole in each half.  Next, adhere some of the gorgeous coordinating Bo Bunny paper to one side--allow to dry, cut out, lightly sand any rough edges smooth, and repeat on the other side of the notebook cover with a coordinating Candy Cane Lane paper. 

Now let's make it pretty--add some Bo Bunny Pebbles Cream Chalks and Pearlescent Chalks around the edges?  Oh yes, thank you, I believe I will! 
A LSS Merry Christmas Tree



and some LSS Snowflakes, too.



Oh and plenty of glitter--Bo Bunny has a decadant Gold Glitter Paste, SO rich and sparkly, and easy to work with, too.

Well, my bloggy friends, I'm cutting you off at two Christmas goodies this post--don't forget to add some list-making paper to the little books.  I tied mine with a little bit of tulle:



Check back with us all month for more inspirational Holiday projects. We have a BoBunny Prize Pack to give away to one of our lucky commenters, so check out our blog and FB postings!
If you are on Pinterest, check out the special Pinterest Board that we have created for this swap.  Re-pin some of your favorite projects for an extra chance to win our BoBunny Prize Pack!

Mixed Media Layout for the Leaky Shed Studio / BoBunny Product Swap by Tracey Sabella

Hello Leaky Shed Studio fans.
It's the first post for our product swap with BoBunny.


It's Tracey here to share a layout I created with Leaky Shed Studio Snowflakes and Snowflake Border Chipboard paired with the BoBunny Christmas Collage Collection. I had so much fun working with these gorgeous products. Although this paper is designed as a Christmas collection, some of the pages lend themselves beautifully to other uses like this wintry page.

"December Snow"

Tips and Techniques
I've clustered gorgeous BoBunny Daisy and Bouquet flowers, jewels, buttons, trinkets, lace, stickers, and layered chipboard along with handcrafted twine flowers around my snowflake photo. For a wintry feel, I've brushed and dabbed white crackle paint over the elements.

Here's another view.

One of Leaky Shed Studio's new release pieces is this gorgeous Snowflake Border (Small).  I've simply dabbed it with BoBunny Gold Glitter Paste, leaving bits of the bare chipboard peeking through. I've added a Mocha BoBunny Jewel to the center of each flake. 

My title uses the BoBunny Combo Stickers. The letters are close in color to my background, so I adhered them then lightly sanded to help them pop. The green flourish behind the snowflakes is also from the the Christmas Collage Combo Sticker sheet.

Above the photo I've clustered one of my handcrafted twine flowers centered with a BoBunny snowflake button and one of the Leaky Shed Studio Snowflakes from the Six Snowflakes set. I edged the photo with white crackle paint for a snowy effect.

One more snowy cluster.
A tutorial for my twine flower can be found HERE

I used one of the tags from the Decoupage page and cut more flags from paper scraps for my banner. I dry brushed the banner with gesso. Above the tags is a piece of BoBunny lace dabbed with Gold Glitter Paste and Crackle Paint.

In the center of the page and under the title, I spritzed BoBunny Bronze Glimmer Spray. Since it is a winter page, I wanted to lighten it just a bit, so stamped the background using BoBunny's It is Written and Stained Textures stamp sets. I then heat embossed using Shabby White Embossing Enamel by Fran-tage. 

More texture is added by splattering with white and green drawing ink. I've scattered some of the BoBunny Mocha Jewels around the page along with another of the Leaky Shed Studio Snowflakes.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
I hope you have been inspired to create a layout combining
Leaky Shed Studio Chipboard and BoBunny products.

I love fall colors

Hi everyone!
Laura here and although now it feels more like winter here just a few short weeks ago it was autumn.  Cool days and crisp nights and gorgeous fall colors!

Here is a layout I created 


The handsome young man in the photo being a leaf monster and having a great time is our youngest son....he usually has a grin on his face!


For the awesome chipboard I sprayed it with 3 different mists in fall colors
then I used some embossing powder to add texture!


I also used the mists on the lace and the background

Christmas Card Making Season Begins!

Hi Leaky Shed fans! Cathy here with you today and all of us here at Leaky Shed Designs want to wish you a 
Happy Thanksgiving!
May your day be special and may you cherish all your memories made with friends and family today!

Now, Christmas is just right around the corner...so it's time to get into holiday card making mode and with Leaky Sheds gorgeous winter and holiday chipboard pieces, it makes creating stunning cards easy!
With a little help from my Silhouette Cameo and Leaky Shed Six Snowflake set...I create the card below.  I painted the 3 snowflakes white and once they were dry, I coated them with Diamond Stickles.
I love how this card turned out!



And for my second card, again I used my Silhouette Cameo and added the Leaky Shed Snowflake Scroll ornament.  I painted it white and while it was still wet, I added a coat of glitter.
Let the Christmas Card Making begin!
