Layout of the Week – BELIEVE Bo Bunny My Word Chipboard Album

Sorry about not posting a Layout of the Week last week.  Between regular duties, jury duty & a sick kid, time just flew by.  But I do have a special project this week.  I want to share the album I created to commemorate Jake’s 1st Christmas.  I love the Bo Bunny My Word Chipboard Albums and BELIEVE is my favorite one.  These albums are great to display on your coffee table or mantle where people can grab them & quickly flip through them.  When I created this one, I wanted to use bright colors and traditional red & green to create a fun album the kids would love.  I chose Reminisce’s Snow Globe collection as my paper & stickers for this project.

If you’re interested in how to create your own My Word Chipboard Album, click the links below for step by step instructions and photos.  I created this class last Fall for the scrapbook store blog I write.  You could also use these techniques for other types of chipboard albums.

Julie’s Bo Bunny Chipboard Album Classes

Class #1 – Gathering the Supplies
Class #2 – Choosing & Adhering the Paper
Class #3 – Trimming the Paper
Class #4 – Painting the Edges
Class #5 – Ribbon, Ribbon & More Ribbon

This last weekend, I started a new Bo Bunny My Word Chipboard album.  I chose FRIEND to create a birthday party album for Delaney with photos from her 8th birthday party.  She had a tie dye slumber party, so I was looking for very bright patterned papers.  I chose Limerickey from Basic Grey and it’s perfect.  I’m ready to paint the edges, so I’m about 1/2 way done.  I’ll be sure to share it with you once it’s all ready to go!

But for now, here’s my BELIEVE album for you to enjoy!  Remember, January is the perfect time to put together an album with all your memories from last Christmas…while you still remember them! πŸ™‚

For all you VGNO partiers…
Would you rather have Bob or Jillian as your trainer?
(I’ve been working out with a group of mom’s at school this week, to the Biggest Loser DVD’s, and I’m strongly a BOB person!  Can’t deal with people yelling at me while I’m attempting to work my as off!)
