Bo Bunny Winter Wishes Winter layout of Passau, Germany

   I just loved the color match of the photos with the Bo Bunny Winter Wishes collection. These papers have white on white with more Grays and Beige. The patterns themselves are so beautiful,  This layout is of St.Stephen's Church in Passau, Germany which we toured with a guide in on our recent trip with the Romantic Danube Viking River Cruise.
Details of the layout: First, I printed the photos smaller in order to fit so many of them on my double page layout. 7 printed at 3"x 5" and then one wallet size.
The background papers are 2 pieces of Winter Wishes named "Very Limited". I really wanted to showcase the designs so I added the Ranger Crystal Stickles and Glossy Accents to the elements in the print, and let dry for 24 hours. More details of that to follow.
   With the photos, I matted them using the Bo Bunny Winter Wishes Flurries pattern paper with a 1/8th inch border. Arrangement was tricking due to me not wanting to loose one aspect of this gorgeous Church and its magnificent organs.
  Next I pulled out the Layered chipboard embellishments:
And chose the key hole piece and added Ranger Glossy Accents in the key hole for a glossy 3D look. There is a close up on the third picture from the top.
  To add the last wallet size photo, I worked with the design of the paper and used my EK Success Retractable Craft Knife to cut out the clothes pin at the left bottom of the page. After matting the photo, I slipped it into place and added more Ranger Glossy Accents to the clothespin to make it look more 3D, as well as the "brad" seen on the papers. This is the sheet itself of Bo Bunny Winter Wishes Very Limited pattern paper.
Using my Cricut Explore and the Cricut Cartridge called Blackletter paired with my computer font called Old English. I cut it out with a Charcoal Grey shiny cardstock from the UK. Using Contact sticky paper from the Dollar Tree, I "lifted" the titles from the mat AFTER "weeding" each. I then placed it as I wanted on the layout using EK Success 2 way glue. I like to use the Cricut Tools like the sickle weeder to press down each letter. Doing each title may be easier to do with tweezers but I like it to be straight as when it comes off the Cricut Mat so that's why I do it that way. Also, if you wanted to use Vinyl it would come up onto the Contact Paper easier as well. The color of the paper was the reason I used this particular one.

 We thoroughly enjoyed seeing this old church with our tour guide pointing out all the different elements. This organ is the largest in Europe with 17,000 pipes!! Unfortunately, we were there in the dead of winter and due to moisture it is not played until May-October. The church dates from 600-1600's and we walked around the outside, we were able to see the huge double doors made of iron with 4 hands in the garden/fountain area. That photo can be seen on my other layout called Ancient Doors. Passau is a very fun city, made of old architecture like this masterpiece and a newer University and a modern multi-storied mall! One of my favorite places with so much to see and do!! There are more layouts to come.
