Occasionally I come across a product that I really love and want to share. This happens to be one of those times. If you love the look of chipboard mini albums and never knew where to start in making one, or want to make one very quickly, this product is perfect for you. It is the Bo Bunny chipboard album with pre-cut -to- fit paper pages and accessories (chipboard, stickers, etc). It is a great idea and one of the many ideas that makes me think........why didn't anyone think of this sooner. Bo Bunny makes several options for the style of the album and paper choices, but I went with the Mama-razzi line as I love the rich tones of the blues, tans, browns, and oranges....perfect for boy photos.
I bought this as a kit from my local scrapbook store, but Bo Bunny sells them separately, so the individual items I will use are the chipboard album, the paper pack, and sticker sheet.
The album comes with an acrylic front, 6 double sided pages (12 pages total) and a small chipboard page that I will use as a title page. Each page of the album is cut with a different design/ shape. The paper pad comes with 24 pages. 12 of these pages are already pre-cut to fit the pages of the album, and 12 are 8 x 8 in size. This makes is SO EASY! No agonizing over the perfect paper choices, and no cutting to fit around the chipboard shape then trimming with an exacto knife. All you have to do is match the paper to the page and glue away.
In less than an hour I had the basic album complete, and ready to add photos and embellishments. I did not add photos yet as I want to use this album for my son's birthday party in two weeks, but I LOVE the look of the basic finished design.
I have made many mini albums that are completely custom, where I choose the paper and make all the embellishments, and I love that those albums are totally one of a kind. But I also love how quick and easy this album was. So if you are looking for another option for making mini albums, the Bo Bunny products are the way to go.
Let us know if you have a favorite product you love. We would love to hear from you.
