Bo Bunny My Word Albums/books ** TIPS ** & Halloween

TIP #1 - How to Bind My Word Chipboard Albums:

There are many ways to bind the My Word books together after you’ve covered them with your favorite Bo-Bunny Papers. Here are a few ideas:

Ribbon Binding

Scored Edge w/ Ribbon Binding

Binder Rings Binding

TIP #2 - How to Adhere paper to the My Word Albums:

Mod Podge glue is a favorite for the more advance paper crafter. Simply spread the adhesive using a foam brush to the back side of your paper and then adhere to the chipboard and trim. Be careful not to use too much or your paper will bubble.

Dry Adhesive like the Xyron’s Cheetahs are easy for any level of paper crafter to use. Simply run adhesive along chipboard or paper and adhere. Use another running adhesive like Tombow’s Mono Adhesive to secure down the edges.

TIP #3 - How to trim the paper to fit the album letters:

Trick 1 - Simply place your “letter” upside down on the “back” side of your paper, trace with a pencil and then trim along tracing line. This offers the most accurate way to match up paper to chipboard page.
Trick 2 - Adhere paper directly to chipboard and then trim around edge using an x-acto knife. Then sand along edge to create a clean meshed look between the paper and the chipboard.
These will be in stock by Sat Oct 27th, 2007. I have lots of Bo Bunny papers and stickers in stock also so you can create a book to look just like theirs or close to theirs. Or I have many other fun papers you can use to come up with your own ideas.
I have you looked Creative Imaginations in my store lately? I have the sweetest Chipboard Castle books.
I have been having fun lately making tons of tear bears with mulberry paper. I am adding the witch hat by Sizzix and creating my own Halloween card. So this weekend while working on cards I will also be baking pumpkins to make fresh pumpkin bread loafs to give out to friends and co-workers along with my tear bear cards.
I will post my pumpkin bread recipe tomorrow night along with a picture of my Happy Pumpkin Day card to inspire some of you. Are you making anything for Halloween to give to friends? Send me a photo of it so I can share with the readers.
Have a great rest of the week! I am looking forward to the weekend. I love to bake and create fun projects.

Hey there,
Thanks for the tips on how to cover the word books. Didn't have a clue, so didn't order. Now I have an idea and will order at some point. Gave out a few of your cards today. Found out one of our patients was a scrapbooker and one of the reps that comes into the office. Was fun chatting with them. Hopefully they will order. working on a huge project for Awana. It's like a BIG scrapbook project. Take care. Love ya, D
