Bo Bunny Whoo-ligans & a give-away!








{Reported by Paula Gilarde}


Oh my holy cuteness! As soon as I saw the new Halloween line from Bo Bunny I was smitten. Could this line be any cuter? With two young kids I tend to shy away from the scary Halloween lines when scrapping that season - Bo Bunny's option has a mixture of cute, whimsy and with the tiniest touch of spooky.


What I liked:
1. I mentioned the cute factor, Whoo-ligans has got it going on right from the name (adorable!). The illustrations are adorable - cute owls, mummies, aliens, spiders - CUTE!
2. Not only is the line perfect for Halloween, the b-sides can be used on non-Halloween themed layouts. Most of the b-sides have great graphic patterns that are neutral enough to use on any type of layout.
3. I LOVED the color scheme. The introduction of the light blue color into the palette really set the Bo Bunny line apart from all the other Halloween lines, for me.

What I disliked:
1. Hmm...this is a tough one. Although I really liked that the 12x12 sticker sheet had two different colored smaller alphas, I could have done with a larger sized one.

What I made:

First I used the line on a Halloween layout -- I love the name of the line so much that I used it as my title, gotta love when someone does the thinking for me!)


Supplies: Bo Bunny Whoo-ligans patterned papers, stickers, layered chipboard and layered stickers. Digital frame by Katie Pertiet (www.designerdigitals.com)

Then I decided to use the paper on a non-Halloween themed layout. I found some very colorful photos of my daughter and her best friend dressing up. I love how easy the graphic papers were to use.
Supplies: Bo Bunny Whoo-ligans patterned papers, stickers and epoxy brads.

I was inspired by the journaling cards and the packaging, to make a mini-album. I used the transparency on the cover of the journaling cards booklet on the cover of my album, embellishing it with some stickers.


on the inside I used a 4x6 piece of patterned paper on one side and on the other page I used one of the journaling cards are a sort of mat for my photo, adding the journaling around the photo.

This Bo Bunny collection is just so adorably cute! I love the examples you made, especially using the paper for a non-Halloween theme - nice to have verstility (which frankly I probably would not have thought of). The little characters are so sweet, and I think it's suitable for any Halloween project, not just for little kids.

Aicho said...

What a great idea for a minibook! You are absolutely right that the b-sides have a lot of other options available... Looks like a great line to have!

Bronwyn said...

Oh my, love this line from bo bunny! They always have such great stuff. Love all of your reviews on product too! you all do a great job showing us scrappers all of the new products! I started reading your blog after cha winter and since then check it daily! Especially with this post, i love how you showed the entire line, as some stores only carry bits and pieces, you sometimes don't get to see it all!
thanks for the chance to win!

I totally love this collection and I really LOVE your little scrapbook!

I have wanted to make some frame-able halloween art and these pieces could be perfect for that project!!

JJ Sobey said...

This line is so stinkin' adorable! Just perfect for small kids at halloween!

Angela Fehr said...

This is a cute line and I love the owls - though I confess that all the Halloween lines this fall look very similar to me!

Doreen said...

I love your Halloween l/o and your little book - so adorable! I love the versatility of Bo Bunny double-sided papers, too.

Imagine my surprise, though, when I realized that this line is soooo similar to our Close To My Heart line "Hooligans" which just debuted in August. :) It's VERY similar - and also very cute! Look: https://doreenguilfoyle.myctmh.com/Retail/Product.aspx?ItemID=5662&CatalogID=1651

Love your reviews! :)

Rebecca G said...

This is so cute. I would love to have some of this line to use this year at halloween.

Kelly Massman said...

Seems like everything Bo Bunny does is fantastic! Love it and your projects! :-)

mustangkayla said...

I think this line is very fun! I haven't scrapped my kiddos Halloween pictures from last year yet, so maybe winning this line would give me the inspiration to do so!

Hannie Chung said...

Well, I definitely can't use it for Halloween project since we don't have it here. So I'm going to use it for the day to day scrapbook pages or a mini album for my boys.

Ann Cicilie said...

Adorable colors and cute little monsters!

I'm not much of a halloween scrapper, so I think I'd use them for some fall themes layouts and projects. Bo Bunny is amazing when it comes to embellishments, man do they deliver some great goodies to their paper lines!

abbeyviolet said...

I really liked the black flower and embellishment.

This line is adorable, perfect for my grandkids! Love the mini album.

This is definitely one of the cutest Halloween lines that I've seen this year. I'm thinking it would be lovely to use for some layouts for my 5 year old nephew.

Patchi said...

I usually stay away from Halloween papers for the same reason - too scary for young kids. Love this one and how it can be used for other themes too!

Yvonne said...

This is a really cute line. I am in need of Halloween themed paper - can you believe I have not one piece?!! What kind of scrapp'n mom am I!? I love the mini album idea - something I might have to try when I get my stash of Halloween paper ;)

I am so in love with this bright, cheerful line, can't wait to use up my photos with this stuff :)

I'd definitely use this line to catch up on last year's Halloween photos, which I never scrapped. Then I'd make some cards to give out this year too. Even just the name of the line is adorable, don't you think? Thanks for the chance to win!
