Bo Bunny "Block Party"








{Reported by Annie Hafermann}




WOWZA...Love, Love, Love, Love, CRAZY LOVE!!! If I could some how put music to this post, I would. This AMAZING line by Bo Bunny makes me want to get up and dance! So excited was I when the box of goodies arrived, I called my neighbor and said "GET OVER HERE....I have your new favorite product line spread out all over my dining room table."

The line is made up of 11 double sided cardstock weight papers and one die cut single sided cardstock weight paper. There is a BRILLIANT little notebook of journaling spots (which I turned into the niftiest little mini book). And the embellishments are endless....buttons, brads, chipboard, stickers, and runbons. First I was so wooooed by the colors (bold, striking and the tiniest bit grunge....not overly grunge mind you), then I was drawn in by the many layers of pattern. It's like the line is a little bit Hawaii (or insert other favorite tropical island), a little bit rock and roll, a little bit summer camping trip, a little bit boy meets girl, and a whole lot of fun!! Block Party ROCKS!


What I liked:

1.) Versatility....the possibilities are endless. While it's a great line for boys (and those are sometimes hard to come by), I could easily adapt the line to work for my little girl. It's a great line for vacation photos, school photos, birthday photos...or WOW...BLOCK PARTY photos (must remember to organize a Block Party this summer!)
2.) Double sided....I am crazy for anything double sided. Again...so many possibilities!
3.) Balance...good balance of very very patterned papers and more solid designs (but with super cool texture and layering).
4.) Embellies....lots of coordinating embellies make me very happy....I would just go ahead and order every single thing this line has to offer!

What I disliked:
When a line makes your heart race like this one, it's hard to find anything to "dislike." I guess I could have used a few more of those gorgeous glittery buttons!!
Oh, and while the rubons worked great, they are not the kind that you can easily tell if they have "rubbed on".

What I made:

Best of the Best Layout:



Good Times Minibook/Mantle Display






Happy Birthday Minibook (made out of the journaling notebook....I simply opened up the wiring, took half the pages out (there are doubles) and then adhered the remaining pages back to back and put the whole thing back together again.)

Joni Parker said...

Of the new Bo Bunny lines, this one is BY FAR my favorite!! I have it on pre-order at my fave store and am eagerly awaiting it's arrival. I didn't order all the embellies since that gets kinda pricey and it's really hard to see some things on-line. I love your projects!!

Jen said...

Love this and love how they're doing notecards to go with the papers!

Vicki said...

That is a gorgeous line. So fun to look at. Loved your projects and what a fun idea to make a book. Very clever. This is going to be a must have!

have not worked with this line but I love how Bo Bunny has made it so easy to make mini albums with their product lines. I would love this to make an album for my daughter who is going on a trip with some friends after graduation.

Anke said...

Great collection of papers and embellishments! Should like to try some of these!
You made marvellous projects!

These are great "boy" colors in general, but also for specific themed events.

Love this new line... and I hope everyone else does. We will have it in store by Thurs, May 27th as well as the other 3 new lines from Bo Bunny. Super excited.... wish it would show up early and surprise us all.

Gabi said...

So haven't tried this line yet, and I normally am not a huge fan of Bo Bonny, but this is such a kid/family friendly line I can see lots of potential...

I can see LOs for the beach, circus, parties, walking the boardwalk, etc.

Lots of possibilities!!

I haven't made anything with this line but I did get to see it upclose a couple of weeks ago. My LSS had the paperline for us to checkout and we all loved it!

Donna E. said...

love everything you did with it! such bright and happy colors!

Emily said...

Very cute, you made some lovely projects! I'd love to have some of this to play with, though I think my favorite mid season release from Bobunny was Peacock Lane. They sure are wowing me, though, they have probably climbed 5-7 ranks in the list of my favorite paper companies in the last couple years. Now in the top 5!

barbs said...

I love the colors and all the special products that coordinate with the papers.

Peg said...

To be honest, I wasn't that taken by the Bo Bunny until I saw what you did with it, I love how you used it, that first layout is amazing and makes me wanna rush out and buy!!

gertie109 said...

Wow! This line is so me I can't believe it! So many of my scrapping friends are quiet, pastel, minimalist scrappers, and there is nothing wrong with that but they just don't get me! Whereas I just go berserk for stuff that is bright, loud and out there. Go Bo Bunny ! This line is superb!

marla said...

These colors and designs are awesome and would make some beautiful projects!!

lisa808 said...

Great bold colors.

Yes, I have used Bo Bunny papers for scrapbooking.

Mary lou said...

LOVE Bo Bunny and this line is no different. Very cute samples of what to do with it too. Thanks for the chance to win!!!

Noelle said...

I just love BoBunny's products! The have this great layered look built right into them. To me, this line screams "summer carnivals." I'll use it to scrap pictures of carousel rides, boardwalk shopping, and ferris wheels!
