Inspired by Pinterest at Bo Bunny

I'm sure if you haven't actually been on Pinterest, yet, you have certainly heard about it.  I tried to hold out because I knew that I would spend WAY to much time on it!  I actually refer to it as my time sucker.  I swear, you can hear the slurping noise when I log on!  :)  Yes, I think it's safe to say that I'm pretty hooked!  It seems that the girls at Bo Bunny are hooked too! 

Today, the design team is showing some examples that are inspired by Pinterest.  If you have been on Pinterest, you are bound to have seen some of the fabulous Subway Art that is out there.  That is our focus today.  Be sure to check out the Bo Bunny Blog for a couple of examples that we were given to inspire us.

For my page, I chose to use a die-cutter for my title and add lots of stickers with words and alphas instead of any journaling.  I used the adorable new Hello Sunshine Collection!


 Although this layout has a lot going on, it is really quick and easy to put together.
To start, I used an electronic cutter to cut out my title. I wasn't really picky about where it ended up, because I planned to just work around it. I did make a point to leave the center of my layout empty.

  Using lots of stickers makes layouts quick and easy to put together. To add intrest and make layering easy, just use lots of foam dots. You can see this in the close-up pictures.

 Use the cut outs to add instant shapes. Since they already have such neat shapes printed, just choose one and cut along the edges.


 Finally, to get the look of stitching or bordering without taking much time, just add holes at the corners and stopping points instead of actually making a lot of stitches.

Don't forget to check out the Bo Bunny Blog for more ideas that are inspired by Pinterest!  There is also another mini album tutorial there and so much more!!
