Bo Bunny Camp A Lot Layout

I just love the new Bo Bunny Camp A Lot line! The lightning bug paper is just too cute! Catching lightning bugs is one of my youngest daughters favorite summertime activities. Don't have any camping pictures? Here is a way to use the papers in a different way than camping themed. The layout was designed by Michelle Smith.

How to Make a Card Using Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Dies

Hi Everyone! I hope everyone is keeping cool during the heatwave we have had! I wanted to share a cute little card I made with the Lifestyle Crafts Bloom Nesting Dies set. I used three of the largest dies from the set, using foam squares under the two smallest diecuts and distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink for added dimension. The paper is Glitz Design Dance in Sunshine Damask. For the base of the card, I used beige cardstock and scored it across the top at 1/2", and adhered this small portion to the bottom of my patterned cutout. This is the best method I have found to make cards using any of your sets of nesting dies. This does not cut off any of your shape. If you make your cards by folding paper in half and leaving the top edge slightly out of your die when you cut it, part of your shape will be lost.
